ARIOUS amendments to the Sun
day liuvs have been introduced
in the Legislature I
Assemblyman McGrnth wants
the Board of Aldermen to have
the power to regulate Sunday
performances and sports In an i
other bill ho seeks to amend tho I
Sunday codo to permit baseball
games between amateurs Sunday
l j Assemblyman Gluck would al
low Sunday entertainments for the benefit of charities and education
Assemblyman Cuvillier would let the Board of Aldermen regu
late Sunday theatres concerts and baseball games of all kinds
This is only the beginning of the session Evidently the Sunday
bills will be numerous Among them will probably be amendments
to the Excise law to permit Sunday selling during the afternoon and
vening hours
The present Sunday laws do not fit metropolitan conditions and
hould be revised but before they are altered there should be a
thorough understanding of what Sunday laws there are and why
iW they am
c Tho Penal Codo now prohibits
r till shooting hunting flshJng playing horse racing gaming or other
public sports exercises or shows upon the first day of the wook
AU trades manufactures agricultural or mechanical employments upon
t the first day of the week except when the same are works of necessity
lAJl manner of public selling or offering for sale of any property on
I Sunday except articles of food before 10 oclock In the morning and meals I I
and prepared tobacco milk ice and soda water fruit flowers confectionery
I newspapers drugs medicines surgical appliances I t
All service of legal process V vi
All processions and parades excepting only funeral processions
The performance of any tragedy comedy opera ballet farce negro
minstrelsy negro or other dancing wrestling boxing with or without
gloves any circus equestrian or dramatic performance or exercise
It is a mistake to entitle these provisions as does the Penal Code
Crimes Against Religious Liberty and Conscience The strongest
I reason for the observance of a day of rest and recreation every week
is economic and not religious The Penal Code recognizes this in
> providing that where the defendant uniformly keeps any other day
ef the week as holy time and does not labor on that day such an
1 observance is a sufficient defense to a prosecution for work or labor
I on Sunday
Most men can do more effective and valuable work in six day
than in seven To Work nil the time decreases the quality of the I
product and the interest that the workingman takes It makes him
a less valuable citiin It would tend to diude the community into
I one class which labors constantly and n preferred class of idlers
F When France abolished religion by statute it soon restored the
rest day The effect of constant labor without rest and recreation
was found to be injurious The total earning worn no greater The
production of labor did not increase correspondingly
It is doubtful wlmtlier there is a bartender who would not prefer
to have saloons closed on Sunday
The performers in theatres at
I least so many of them as are r I
versed in political economy
i would oppose Sunday theatricals
Every labor union recognizes this
r economic principle in fixing a pro
hibitive price for work on Suuday
In amending the Sunday laws
the utmost care should he taken
that the result does not require
l seven days labor for the wages

The Chorus Girl Saw a Bit of Melting Snow So Hark to f
Her Sweet Memories of the Ancestral Ashpile at Home I I I
By Roy L McCardell
AV Kid If these sunshiny days
SAY up Ill bo getting my
spring vln for alilvos and cot
tago choese
You know how
them dreams of
childhood days
comes back to you
in the spring time
The tlrst break of
sunshine In winter
time males me
yearn for the old
home on the out
skirts of Altoona
I stand nga n In
tho kitchen door
1 J Celling the
tQA r 1tUuo
warm wet wind
coming down over the Allegheny
Mruntnln and sen the snow melting off
the ash pile in the back yard
What does folks nilicil in great
c ties know of the Joys of nature Has
thy an ashplle In the back yard has
thty a hjdrant standing there mapped
In an old rag carpet to Keep It from
freezing which It dont and you got
to thaw It out with hot water and
your little brother sticks his tongue on
the spout to drink therefrom on frosty
UK niings and he cant break away and
tile reams Is pitiful to heat and brings
all the neighbors out
Is thero a sound of n parlor organ
on the breeze when gentle fpriiis has
come and you smells the gum shoes
burning on the trash flres In the neigh
bors yards
Vo there aint What does this Iron
hearted steamheated brickwalled
town know of the gentle seasons kid
Not a thing
Speaking of parlor organs has the
kind of songs we used to sing to em
gone out too Why Did They Dig
Mas Grave So Deep What Are the
Wild Waves Saying Will You Love
Mo When Im Old1 You couldn sing
a song to a parlor organ complete with
cover stool and look of Instructions
for SJ unless It was a song that asked I
a question from Where Is My Winder

member Sweet Alice Hen Holt 7 I
When I hear Dopey McKmght play
and sIng Them Cruel Words 1 ant
Forget or Lured by Gold She Left Her
Happy Home or Mr Othrllo or Ive
Lost My Teddy Rear I think of the
merry songs we used to sng to the
parlor organ In dear old Altoona when I
was wearing my hair In a braid
Heres one that was Imninsely pop
ular We didnt play it on Sunday we
played only hymns on Sunday < t some
people saId this was a sacred song be
cause It was about the 1eniisjhmla
Itallroad nnd In Altoonn tin 1emisjl
anla Itallroad Isnt an Institution It s
a religion und It Kites everybody In
thru burg their cakes too
This song was all tho rage In Al
toona You could get a copy of It with
a swell picture of the Chicago < l
on the front cover and the locnl time
tnblo on the back I forget It all but the
chorus which went this nay
See the mighty englnel
Hear the merry bells ling out
For safety ease and comfort
Take the Pennsylvania route
Well and alnt I the big boob to be
talking Old Home hokum and raving of
springtime right In the middle of winter
and poor Mr Roosevelt only a tow more
weeks to work
Lets get out of the airship and back
on earth ngnln It has been a busy
week for Little Sunshine I was at the
Salome Hall and the Hesper Club Ball
and I dreamed last night I went roller
skatIng on the ocean with a band of
pirates and woke up to hear the silvery
laughter of Donnld Do Uranscombe
choking his dear old mother for the
price of two balcony seats so he could
I go ticket scalping on the sidewalk now
thAt the law has gone Into effect that
i fIrCsSlY forbIds the naughty theatrical
i ticket spceulators from paying any
I license fee for the privilege of hitting
unybody in the noe who wont pay dou
I Me rates for fents that will be refuted
at the door unless purchased from the
house speculator
And thats why I say Hurrah for
law and order and if you have any law
that keeps anybody In order do away

strongminded women arc forging to the van In the noise of public discussion It
Is apparent that a growing number of men are voting the way their wives want
them to vote Its about time that something was done to of bet these subsidised

Its no wonder to me declared the man who was getting his package that

weeks to listen to quibbling lawyers who would starve to death outside their
suspicious profession blip and con and slobber and squirm for weary hours ut a

Let us get close to home on that replied the man who was getting his
