TOYS, YES, PLENTY
OF THEM, TO MAKE
' MERRY CHRISTMAS
No Occasion for Children or
Grown Folks to Worry, as
Is Shown by a Look
Through the Stores. '
Toys, toys e very where, .nnd plenty to bo
uroumt. Thnt will surely ho the case this
Christmas, and probably inext, so cheer
up, my children. ntBanlless of what
"Brown-tips" mny tell you about the hor
rid war In Germany, you can hanjr up
your stocking -when the lime comes, and
rest assured they will he filled that Is, If
you have been Rood children all during

kinds of toTi nro simply cJioklnR tho store

thoso who brousht tears-Into tho eyes of
tho "kiddles" some time ngo In telling
them that tho supply of toys would bo cut
oft will surely havo vto "baok water."
The toy situation In America Is unique.
Half tho toys sold In thd United States
every year are manufactured In this
country. The war stopped the Importa
tion and nianufocturo of foreign toys for
a short time, but the fact romalns thai
this country Is practically "Hooded" with
Christmas toys of both foreign and do
toys nouaiiT long ago.
In act, many dealers hero laid In sup
plies lonir before tho war started. Others
hadj placed orders to bo delivered this
fall, and whon war was declared they
j1 proceeded to buy up all thoy could from
other American dealers, ftonr 1110 nrai
orders aro bclna delivered, and the re
sult means a bis , "fat" stock of toys
of all kinds.
American children may not enjoy this
Christmas as much as on previous years,
but that will not be brought nbout by a
Jack of toys. It may bo that thoy will
bo saddened by the thought thai oiner
little children nbout their own ago In
Europo are suffering for both food and

Tho toy trade of late has been boom
ing among American dealers. Some 'peo
ple seem to Milnk thnt nearly all toys
are made abroad;. It Is true that Ger
many has supplied the world, so to speak,
but Americans are coming more and
more to the front, Tho famous Teddy
Bear originated here.
All tho fancy dolls with closing eyes
and fancy heads como from Germany.
Theso dolls range in prlco from 50 cents
to $50. The expensive German dolls are
expensively "gowned" and vlco versa.
H. G. Schwarz, of the G. A. Schwarz
Company, Chestnut street, says that
without exception all the bisque head
dolls como from Germany, His store Is
well supplied and, like a good business
man, he Is not worrying too much about
noxt Christmas. "Dont cross a bridge"
Louis L. Relnekc, president of -Winters
& Relneke. wholesale toy dealers, says
that tho United "States is well supplied
with toys. "Tho children, at least, need
FINE AMERICAN-MADE DOLLS.
Perhaps the .fjnest American-made dolls
on the market are mado by tho A. Schoen
hut Company, of Philadelphia. They are
mado of all wood and can do most every
thing but talk. They can stand, alt, as
sume the poses of the most modern
dances,, play football and at least talk
with their hands.
The Schoenhut dolls are really "com
panionable": more so, perhaps, than "the
big blue-eyed babies" with the typical
doll faces and a vacant doll stare. Albert
F. Schoenhut said yesterday that It had
been the object of the firm since it was
established by his father, Alfred Schoen
hut, more than 40 years ago, to make in
structive as well as amusing toys.
Tho all-wood dolls aro natural. They
look Ilka little neighbors. Every Joint Is
flexible and practically unbreakable. As
Mr. Schoenhut said: "Fancy bisque heads
6reak easily, and every father knows
that he can replace the head only at
considerable expense; but to the child
the doll Is never the same. It may be a
case of love at first sight, but when a
child loves a doll. If the doll brcakB, the

Dolls are a great Institution, as all
children will agree. They were used by
the early Egyptians, and the doll army
has Invaded and captured the world.
War or no war, with American-made
dolls among the finest, or at least among
the most "Intelligent," with the country
well stocked with all kinds ,of toys, the
emiaren, as said before, "need . not
worry." As' the old pessimist would say,
they will have enough to contend with
when they grow up.
WOMEN OF FOUR STATES
FORM SUFFRAGE COMMITTEE
Mrs. Raymond Brown Responsible
for Ten Organizations.
An "Interstate Campaign Committee"
for Woman Suffrage" has been eatabt
llshed fer Pennsylvania, New York, New
Jereeyand Massachusetts. This Is to
act in tHe capacity of a ways and means
committed and will compare notes and
work and will arrange exchanges of
speakers and propaganda.
The establishment of this new arm of
the suffrage army was brought about
largely by the efforts of Mrs. Raymond
Brown, president of the New York State
Woman Suffrage Association, a prom
inent figure Jn the suffrage convention
held last week at Nashville. Tenn. In
reporting otWthe business of the conven
tion and prospects of the. future Mrs.
"To many of the women of the South
suffrage is a new Idea, but they are
quick to see the Justice of it, and It
would not be jiurprlslng if the saying
that 'women will get the vote when
women want It. would be true In that
section. There does not seem to be the
fierce opposition there based on reacr
tlcnary standpotlsm, the fear of cor.
Tupt corporate and political interests,
which we have against us In the East.
'If women of Pennsylvania and New
xcric win next year she, almost immedi

ithe whole country will be practically as

SIR OLIVER'S TALKS
WITH SPIRIT WORLD
ARE DOUBTED HERE
Scientists Say They Require
More Proof of Lodge's
With the Dead.
Paychologlsts of this city were united
In casting doubt today upon statements
mado In it lecture by Sir Oliver Lodge,
president of the Society for Psychical
Itesearch, who declared that ho hus con
versed Iwlth friends who had died.
Tho statements to which they take ex
ception tiro as follows:
"What I say Is based on definite scien
tific gtounds. I say It becnuse I know
thnt certain friends of mine still evlst,
because I have talked to them. Com
munication Is possible, but ono must obey
tho laws to find out tho conditions. I
do not say It Is easy, but I say It Is
"I tell you thnt theso people still take
an Interest In tho things that nre going
on; that they still help us to know
more things than we dp, and that thoy
are able front time to time to communl
cnte with us."
Sir Oliver stated further that once per
sons realized consciousness was some
thing outside tho mechanism It made uso
of, tlicy realized survtvnl of existence
was tho simplest thing. It Is unreason
able that the soul should pass out of ex
istence when tho body Is destroyed, he
thinks, nnd says that persons nro not
limited to tho few years they llvo on
earth, but continue to exist after physical
DOCTOn FURNESS' OPINION
In commenting on theso statements, Dr.
AVllHnm H. Furness, son of the late Dr.
Horace Howard Gurness. said today:
"Personally I do not believe that com
munication with tho dead Is possible but
any statement mado by Sir Allvcr Lodge
must bo respected, for lie Is strictly a
scientific man, and would make no state
ment of fact In which he did not believe
Prof. Morris Jastrow, Jr., of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, said of Sir
Oliver Lodge's statements:
"Tho statements did not surprise me
at nil. In hip last presidential address
before the Society of Psychical I Re
search, delivered In 1913, Sir Oliver
Lodge made 'statements only slightly
less radical than those Issued today.
"We who do not agree with his views
have two points upon which we may
base our opinion. Wo must either ac
cept tho statement as reliable and con
form our views with those of Sir Oliver,
or we must believe that he la the vic
tim of some deception, If we choose
the latter courBe We are In the difficult
position of being unable to say how
this deception has been brought about.
, VIEWS QF PSYCHOLOGISTS.
Dr. Clarence B. Ferree, director of
the psychological laboratory at Bryn
Mawr College, pointed out that although
numerous scientists and psychologists
had made statements similar to those
of Sir Oliver Lodge, no one had ever
given a thoroughly satisfactory demon
stration, , whlcli, proved that communi
cation with the dead was possible.
Dr. Llghtuer Wltmer, professor of psy
chology and' director of the. psychological
laboratory and clinic of the University of
Pennsylvania, refused to make any com
ment regarding the claims of Sir Oliver
"l shall await slr Oliver's published
experiences before expressing myself as
to their scientific value," he said. "All
'evidence1- which I have investigated up
to now has , proved to be unsubstan
tiated." Dr. WJUIam It. Newbdld, professor of
intellectual and moral philosophy of th
University, who w a member of the
Adam Seybert psychlo investigation
commission and passed upon the astral
experiences of Wra. Piper, refused to dis
cuss the. matter.

treated in the prtss," fle said. "Any pub

Declares Entire City Should
Support Plan Recommend
ed by Subcommittee on
Mayor Blnnkcnburg today approved tho
plan Just recommended by the subcom
mittee of the Comprehensive Plans Com
mittee to Improve triilllc facilities In tho
centro of the city by the construction of
a traffic loop along Race, Locust, Sth
and 16th streets.
"This project is one of the things that
ought to have been done years ago," said
Mayor Blankenburg, In commenting on
tho plan. "Tho citizens nre gradually
awakening to tho fact that unless we
take time by the forelock wo will get
track conditions here cbstructlve to the
proper progress of Philadelphia.
"The assessing of benefits against ad
joining property for financing the plan Is
tho proper thing to do. There Is no use
in the city's enriching people of Phila
delphia without getting proper returns.
Tho city will be benefited nnd the hold
ers of adjoining property will be bene
fited. Tho boulevards of Kansas City,
among the finest anywhere, wero largely
built by assessing adjoining property, and
th city nnd owners both profited to
"Congestion in the central section today
Is of such a nature as to be deplorable.
With Incrense of traffic there la certain

The project to girdlo the central business

tho Comprehensive Plana' Committee by
a subcommittee, consisting of John Hall
Rankin, chairman; Edward W. Bok, S. S.
Ftls, Alba B. Johnson nnd George S. Web

The subcommittee was appointed last
February to consider tho proposition of a

Chief Webster and assistant engineers of
the Bureau of Surveys. A preliminary
report made by the committee, and now

from Sth to Broad. This street Is ndw So

ditional width be made by taking proper
ties on the north side.
This section oi the circuit. It Is esti
mated, will cost $3,775,000. This cost would
bo greatly reduced, however, by the as
sessment of benefits against adjoining
properties and radiating therefrom.
It Is contended by the commllteethat
the project will aid greatly In the con
struction of the proposed rapid transit
loop by reducing Its cost nnd operation.
Tho construction of stations would be
simplified nnd thero would be less possi
bility of congestion.
WOULD AID TRANSIT.
In this connection tho committee said
In Its report:
"Tho delivery loop Is such nn Important
part of the proposed rapid transit system
that its construction can scarcely wait
upon the widening of all the streets form
ing the traffic circuit, but na the cost of
widening Locust street from Broad to
Eighth streett the portion which could be
used by the subway loop) la not great, It
should bo possible for tho city to under
tnko the widening of this short section
nt once; the assessed value of the prop
erty affected by the widening of this
section Is 3,O37,G0O."
The lintncdlalo measures which should
bo instituted to make the trnlllc circuit
plans effective nro given by the commit
tee In the following recommendations:
"Authority for all necessary legal pro
cedure should bo obtained by amendment
of the general road law or a new enabling
net and should be nmdo appllcublo to all
takings of property for public use. Pro
vision should be mode for the levying of
nssessments nnd their collection cither In

nation of benefited nrcas, the distribution
of assessment, preparation of plan.", esti
mates of cost, public hearings, npprovut
of projects nnd such review and nctlon by
designated courts as may be necessary to
properly protect nil parties In Interest.
"Your committee believes that tho con
struction of n central trafllc circuit Is
an entirely feasible enterprise, that It
would be of very great benefit to tho city
nt large and to the central section In
nnrtlfltln,- ttint fl fnri-A DAft of itfl COSt.
perhaps DO per cent., could be met by
the assessment plan, ana tnnt it snouia
be commenced nt once. We, therefore,
beg to submit the following recommenda
tions for your most serious consideration."
RECOMMENDATIONS OF COMMITTEE.
"First. That a -draft of an act, or an
amendment to the present road law, bo
prepared and submitted to the Stnte Leg
islature at lis noxt session to authorize
tho application 6f tho method of assess
ment above set forth to tho taking of
property for public use and to define the
legal procedure for Its use.
"Second. That the Permanent Commit
tee on Comprehensive Plans take such
nctlon ns It may deem proper to encour
ago a change In the methods of property
assessment whereby land and buildings
may bo separately assessed foi the pur
poses of taxation and a uniform method
of land assessment adopted.
"Third. That the following draft of a
resolution to authorize further official In

In Councils and Its passage nnd approval
Resolved, by the Select and Common
Councils of the City of Philadelphia, That

snld project to completion, Including Ita
financing and the work of opening and

together with such other facts and data
relating thereto ns may bo of value In
Its consideration to these Councils.
"Fourth. That Immediate attention be
given to the opening of that part of tho
circuit to be formed by the widening of
