Allied Conference
Agrees to Pool All
Atlantic Tonnage
Shipping Board to Control
Vessels in American
Ports
[Stajjf Correopvtvdrnre]
WASHINGTON, Dec. 8.?Pooling of
all transatlantic traffic leaving Ameri?
can ports has been practically arranged
at the Inter-Allied Conference, accord
ing to Commissioner Bainbridge Folby
of the Shipping Board, Chairman Hur
ley af the board announced to-day.
This will mean, accordmg to Mr. Hur
lev. that all cargo carners arriving at
American ports will be plaeed under
the control of the port renresent.
of the Shipping Board, who will have
full authonty oi.r their loadtBg and
d.spatch to convoy. This plan will
eliminate. it is predicted, delays caused
by lack of coordination in load.ng and
iri moving vessels to convoy. and will
freatlr faci'.itate the efforts of the
. hippi'tig Board to get a higher ef?
fieiency out of America's tonnafe.
There are four essential consiricra
tions in the overseai trat.sport prob?
lem. ?aid Chairman Hurley. First,there
must be the expedit.ou- movenunt of
freight to the seaboard ; than .
erg must hc kept free of conge*
tion and must be capablc of prompt
handling of goods coasigned to ship
board; there must he rapid movement
to convoy. and, I'mally. there must bc
efneient 'unloading at the European
docks and prompt dispatch of the ves?
sel on its return voyage to America.
A plan for the coordination of va?
rious transportation ager.cie? to meet
this problem is now under considera
t:on by the government. and should be
formulated within the next week, Mr.
Hurley added. _

?Places Quickly Filled,
Declares Company
Reporta that the forty-aeven Childs
restaurants in Manhattan and Brook
l>n were to add cookless days to their
programme of onc meatless and one
wheetleas day a week were. promptly
denied at the headquarters of the com?
pany, where it was !-aid that the rumor
probably orijrinated m thc minds of the
striking kitchen help who likod ta be
l.eve that they are indispensable.
( .1 Wimple, assistant treasure
I'hi'.ds, said that he was surpr<r 1
the amount of lahor that the company
was able to get to hli the place*; of the
strikers, and added that by Tucsday
the personnel of the Chiid* stores
weuld be up to norrriBl witnout the re
instatement of a single one of the strik?
ers who walked out at noon Friday for
higher wages shorter hours and 'dif?
ferent fooos."
The answer of the strikers to this
elaim of victory wi< that "1,000 more
Childs employes, .ncluding a large pro
portlon of women, would join the 1,1500
seasoned eoeks, griddlemen, counter
men and waiters already on strike, and
leave the griddle cakes. thc beans and
? he small steaks to their own salvation
ard green harids." Nathan Goldberg,
chairman of the strike committee, was
the apokesmen for the protcsting em?
ployes.
ror their part, the patrons were able
' to get the usual variety of dishe? at
most of the Childs branches, and, lt is
.aid, the cooking was up to the cus
tomary standard.
The pubile, aecording to the striker*-,
are to be the arbiters. Plcheta ap
pealed to the patrons of the restaurants
by marching in front of all the branches
at luncheon and aupper hours. Mr.

Let these frieids develop .your boy
These are a few of the boys and the men?clean-hearted,
hp'ilthy-mmded, rrd-blooded?that your boy will meet,
love and be bencfited by, in The American Boy Magazine.
Here at the left is Dan Beard, among boys the best
loved man in America, and among men respected for his
knowledge of tbe woods and his fine outdoor philosophy.
He is teaching more than half a million boys to be woods
men and sportsmen.
Next is Clarence B. Kelland, with his hand on Mark
Tidd's shoulder. Fat Mark Tidd, the rreation of Clarence
Kelland's brain, is the funniest and most fascinating young
stor since Tom Sawyer. Beside him is Charles Tennev
.Jackson; Corporal May is the chap he's been telling boys
about. Each time Corporal May has emerged from some
new and exciting adventure because of his intelligence and
downright grit. On the right is William Heyhger, who
holds boys spellbound with tales of baseball, football and
track meets, where his heroes are a wonderful inspiration
in courage and stamina.
Thnt boy of yours is growfng up. Hia reading and his
friends are moulding him. His thoughts are laying the
track for the thoughts of years to come. The boys who
congregate on the c* rner are a bad influence, but it ?
merely a temptation to say, " Don't play with those boys."
Cheap, morbid novels nre just so much poison to his raind.
but it doesn't do to say, " Don't read that." Your boy is
healthy,vigorous,impetuous. He cannot thrive on "don'ts."
Encourage him to do. Divert him from harm and the
possibility of harm by giving him a present of
