Mothers Here Approve Idea
of New York Manager,
Who Has Solved Problem
: of Caring for Babies.
Mothers, and fathers, too, for that
matter. In this city were loud in their
prafses' of the Ingenious manager of a
moving picture theatre in the Bronx
section of New York city, who has cs-
' tabUshed tin annex to his theatre in the
shape of a day nursery, -where the kid
die spend enjoyable afternoons while
the parents get an hour's relief and
. watdh the 'movies"
"That Is R fine idea," said a mother of
two pretty little children, after she had
heard that a manager of a motion pic
ture -theatre on Westchester nvenue, In
tho Bronx section, had leased a largo
store n"ext. to the theatre nnd fitted It
eut.for.the children. She expressed tho
sentiments of many mothers In this city
when she said that tho Philadelphia
"movie" men should get busy nnd give
Philadelphia theatres with day nurseries.
Ira Lowry, manager of tho Lubln Man-
' ufac'turlng Company, 20th atroot and In
diana avenue, when asked about the
movie-nursery .idea, said that it was a
good thing and expressed the opinion
that the innovation In the motion pic
ture .field would soon bocome popular.
"I think the nursery featuro of the
'.moving picture theatre Is a fine Idea,"
nald'air. Lowry today, "Baby carriages
In front of a motion plcturo theatre are
a. common sight In many parts of tho
city, and I believe theatre owners would
Increase their business it thoy adopted
the new idea. Many mothers would go
to tho show in the afternon if they know
they would be relieved of the care of the
youngster's for an hour or so."
While many motion picture theatre
owners In ,this city agreed that the
mbvie-nursery Idea might increase the
box ofllco receipts, a. manager of a big
motion picture house In the centre of the
city said that the plan would be Im
practicable in the downtown houses. He
pointed out that tho ronts were so high
In the business section that it would be
a poor Investment to lease space for
the babies, but said that the Idea should
meet with success in tho residential sec
tions of the city, whero the rents are
not so high.
"I'm for that," said a bald head per-
grouch, when he heard of the
movie in New York which was caring for
"Gee whiz! that's the best thing I've
heard since the war started. You know a
fftllow can't go to a movie any more un
less some kid In the seat behind you Is
using the back of your head for a bass
drum or making a napkin out of your
"Then there's another thins," he con
tinued. "It'll be a good thing to have
tho kids out of tho way because they are
always bawling out so loud that it Is im
possible to tell whether the orchestra is
playing ragtime or classical stuff."
"VVhlle it is not known whether the idea
will be carried out in this city, at the
Westchester Avenue Theatre. In the
Bronx, it Is having a successful tryout.
During the first five days mothers left 253
children to be entertained at the nursery
duripg the performances. The children
ranged In age from 6 months to 10 years
and to prevent "Willie Jones" from get
ting -mixed i up with .somebody else each

One woman, with a family of six,
brought her flock; ranging In age from
3 to 10 years., to the nursery every
nfternoon to shift her burdens and saw
the 'motion pictures while the children
played in the nursery.
- The nursery Is fitted up with a sand
pile, three swings, four rocking horses,
Iqw chairs and a crib. There are also
toys of all sorts and tools and palls for
digging; In the big pile of. sand.
"While they are in the nursery the chil

have tho time of their young lives. Of

SHIPYARDS IN CITY
WEIGH PLANS FOR
New Craft for United States
Navy Will Be Largest and
Most Powerful in the
Local shipyards have In hand the speci
fications for tho now giant submarines
to be constructed for the United States
navy. Bids for treso naval wonders
will bo opened by tho Navy Depart
ment on December 15. Officials of the
William Cramp & Sons Shipbuilding
Company and tho New York Shipbuild
ing Company, while admitting they 'were
estimating on the plans and specifications,
were unablo to say definitely whether
they would bid for tho boats. The amount
appropriated for the craft is $523,000. Six
of them will be built.
These submarines, a new type said to
outclass any of this craft nfloat, will aug
ment further the rapidly growing navy
of the United States. Last year 11 sub
marines were finished for the Govern
ment at shipyards on the Atlantic und
Pacific coasts and on the Lakes. Cramps
turned one of these over to tho Govern
ment. It wus the G-4, built after the
LaurentI model In use by tho Italian Gov
ernment. At the time It was supposed
to be the last word In submarine building.
The G-4 is 157 feet 5?i Inches In length
over all, 17 feet C'.i Inches beam, with a
lloatlns draft of 10 feet. Her displace
ment submerged Is 437 tons. She has a
speed of 14 knots on top of the water
and nine knots beneath.
The Increased power of the new sub
marines can best be realized by compar
ing their dimensions with thoso of the
G-l. Tho new craft will be nearly 100
feet long, with a displacement of 1200 terns,
almost three times that of the G-4. They
will have a surface speed of 21 knots and
an underwater speed of 16 knots. Their
swiftness under water will be greater
than that of tho Q-4 on tho surface. They
will be able to keep up with a battleship
fleet, and their cruising radius of 3300
miles will give them an enormous ad
vantage over any submarine boats now
More than a half hundred submarines
are now in the service of the United
States Navy. Germany has about 70, with
Kngland a close second. The United
States submarines, with suitable tenders,
are stationed at various ports along the
Atlantic coast and a submarine station
recently has been established at the west
ern end of the Panama Canal, whet; five
of these submersible war dogs are kept.
The submarines now In use by the navy
have been constructed In three types, the
Holland, Lake and LaurentI. More of the
Lake boats have been built than any
other model. In their trials they gave
extreme satisfaction to the naval authori
ties. They can remain under the water
for more than two daya without diffi
culty. On the surface, gasoline and heavy oil
engines are used. While these engines
are In operation they charge storage bat
teries that operate electric dynamos for
the engines when the vessels are sub
merged. BEER DRINKING. CHILDREN
W. 0. T. TJ; DiBclalms Responsibility
for the Search for Them.
The Woman's Christian Temperance
Upton of Philadelphia has Issued a state
ment disclaiming any knowledge of er
.responsibility for a. .postal card sent out
to tne principals of the public schools
requesting a census "of the children who
drink beer at ,home.".
ijlrs. Mary.Y. Stringer, president of the
union, said today that the card had been
sent out without the authorlxation of
the union by a new member who was
unfamiliar with Its rules.
"We would have' no right to send out
ouoh a request," she said, "and besides
there Is no reason Jo suppose that beer'
drinking among children is prevalent."

Monday. Among those who attended the
meeting of the executive council wero
Samuel Gompers, Frank Morrison, James
O'Donnell and John Mitchell.
President Gompers hns strongly opposed
the plan for the amalgamation of nil
metal trades Into one organization, on
tho ground It would create trouble, con
fusion and misunderstandings among
men employed In the various trades. In
his opposition, Gompers said he voiced
tho sentiment of the conservative faction
of the American Federation of Labor as
against the more radical.
Although, in an Interview Mr. Gompers
expressed himself in favor of tho in
dustrial form of organization and point
ed to the resolution Of the Ilochester
convention on the matter, he opposed
tho method of Industrialism.
Tho argument of those favoring amal

labor to organize along industrial lines
Instead of dividing the Industry Into Its
