Confirmation Expected to Follow
Shortly. May Come Next Week.
Washington, March 19.-Action of
the senate foreign relations commit
teo today in reporting favorably .the
nombiation of 'Balnbridge Colby to be
secretary of state was expeoted to lead
to confirmation .by the senate early
next week. Chairman Lodge of the
committee was understood to have
planned to call the nomination up
Monday, but it appeared possible ac
tion might be delayed by the after
math of the treaty fight.
The committee, which held extensive
hearings before it acted, did not re
cord its vote favoring Mr. Colby's con
firmation by the senate, but some mem
bers reserved the right to discuss the
nomination when it reached the senate
In the house 'Representative Dal

introduced a bill authorizing the as
sistant secretary of state to sign pass
ports, saying lie had been informed 70(

TRIUMPH FOR AMERICAN SKILL
Successful Method Evolved by Which
Dressed Sealskins May Be Made
American workmen have been sue
cessful, after workieih of several oth
er nations failed, in evolving a system
of treating sealskins to make them
For many years furriers had desired
a black dye with which to treat seal
skins successfully. The mode had al
ways been a brownish luster. First,
the French announced a black dye, but
this dye ruined the fur by causing it
to rapidly disintegrate.
The British then worked out a sys
tem of dyeing the sealskins black, but
they could not make the skin pliable
and garments made from them were
awkward. The lack of soft tanning
and the thick le tther ma le it impos
sible to get the flares and degrees of
drape desired in garments.
Today the Alaskan seal, under the
American method, is as supple and
may be as easily manipulated as the
kid of a lady's glove or a fine piece of
chiffon velvet. It is not an exaggera
tion to say that an entire dressed skin
can be drawn through a small napkin
ring. The credit for the flexibility Is
due to the machinery and process in

ZINC STENCILS FOUND BEST
Material Has Many Advantages Over
Any Other Used In the Making
of Those Articles.
Zine is being introduced and made
rather extensive use of at the present
time in the manufacture of stencils,
as a substitute for othet- metals and
paper. Not only is zinc the only mate
rat that does not stretch and buckle
in continuous use, but it has several
other important advantages.
The cutting and making of papet
stenells involves the same skilled'
work as a stenell made of zinc, and n
zinc steniell wiI reproduce ten thou
sand copies. Zinc retains its flat .shnpc
.ndeflnitely. Another feature thi
recommends zine's use Is the low cost
of producing the fiished stenell, thI(
metal possessing iualities that permii
stammiping as 1man11y is one thoisanm
stencils in one olperatiou.
When the nmanufacturer realizes the
economy and valu1e of zinc stencils au
a compared with others it will mear
r vastly increased demand for tha
t metal. Stencils form the backgroun<
o of alntiost every manufactured artici
- from laces to showeases.

zinc stencils for use in stamping s111

with the nearest troops available, at
Rome, Ga., was ordered to reinforce

Meanwhile Sherman was exchanging
