Ho Is pas? tor of the Marble Collegiate Church. The Rev, Harry L. Bowlby, secretary of the a liance, sought to discount the fact of Dr. Burrell's holding important j posts in the two organizations by treat i ing it as a more coincidence. The sub? ie of his explanation was that : when Dr. Burrell was presiding over ? the Anti-Saloon League he tilted his i lance at John Barleycorn exclusively, ? and that when he walked around the corn? to sit with the board of man? ag? vsrii the Lord's Day Alliance he un sheaijfced his sword for the sole un? doing of Sabbath de?ecrators. Drys Disclaim Aid Tli?' board of directors of the Anti- ; i Saloon League yesterday adopted volu-; minous resolutions in which they de? nied "official connection with the Sun? day regulation program." No reference to its war on the cigarette has been made in any of the! announcements of the Lord's Day Al liai i ? in the Ea t, but a perusal of tin- j : alliance's oflicial organ, The Lord's Day Leader, revealed this as a phase of the! campaign. The signs of popular re- ? nt which greeted announcement | of an anti-tobacco campaign pom?'! months ago, featured by a quick scur-| rying of the Anti-Saloon League to re? pudiate any connection with the ?nove. ?: ought to have been responsible for the alliance deciding to keep this light ! . h i.:- n under a bu hel until a more propitious time for springing it on the | Atlantic seaboard. In certain Middle and Northwestern i states, however, there are already statutes m existence, prohibiting the sab- or manufacture of. cigarettes and ? it is in these communities iirat the ?Lord's Day Alliance hag ardently com ? batted all attempts to repeal the laws. 1 The following is quoted from the ? July and August, 1920, issue of The : Lord's Day Leader, page ~: I "On March IG, 1920, North Dakota j held a state election in which no less | than three questions affecting public morals were voted upon the repeal of | the anti-cigarette law; a law licensing 'prize fights and commercialized Sun clay amusements, .such as baseball, Sun ?lay theaters and movies. . . . The Lord's Day Alliance sympathizes heart? ily with those who are fighting the . good fight of faith in this Northwc; I ? ; ern state. It sent many thousai d | pages of literature into North Dal."ta ; and provided much mat? rial for use - in the referendum campaign. While j the election ?lid not accomplish all that the advocates of an orderly Sabbath : desired, yet they were able to prevent ! the repeal of the existing laws pro? hibiting the sale of cigarettes, the ex? hibition of Sunday movies and the taging of prize lights within the state. The law forbidding Sunday baseball was repealed." The boast that "the advocates oe an orderly Sabbath . . . were able to prevent the repeal of the ex sting laws ! prohibiting the sale of cigarettes" : ; i construed as authoritatively linking ?the blue law enthusiasts with the cult of Dr. Lease and "Annette Hazleton." Attacks Dr. Manning The Rev. John Ferguson, state sec? retary of the Lord'- Day Alliance, a former Buffalo pastor, took sharp is? sue yesterday with the Rev. Dr. Will? iam T. Manning, rector of Trinity Church, who in a sermon last Sunday d ?cried the proposed revival of the Puritan Sabbath as "a narrow view of Christianity" and distinctly harmful to religion. Dr. Manning said the Church should encourage wholesome Sunday sports and that the clergy should take part in them, lie said he attended Sunday ball james at Camp Upton when he was chaplain there, "Dr. Manning ought to know," said : Mr. Ferguson, "that any such example I on his part-?going to a Sunday base? ball iranio-?leads downward. If a lay? man hears of Dr. Manning's being at a ball game on Sunday he is likely to consider himself justified in doing something still worse on the Lord's i Day. 'Like people, like priest,' says Scripture. Ministers should set a high standard for the people to emulate." Asked if he did not consider it rea? sonable to a ume that varying inter? pretations mi -iit b p ici d bj Chris i tian? on the duty of Sunday observance and that the people of any g ven com I munity might expect the right tu de? le the question for themselves, Dr. Ferguson said : "Legislatures and the people have no right to barter the ni ras of the poo pie. Every nation that has put. aside the Sabbath has gone down." lie was reminded that ?>r. Manning contends that the Christian church en? tirely altered the conception of the Lord's day when it changed it from Saturday to Sunday and established it to mark the Resurrection instead of the ?lay God rested after creating the earth. "In every particular instance in the \'i v,- Testament," he replied, "in which the English translation reads,'first day ^Advertising Problems All advertisers are confronted with three major problems. Briefly they are: (1) When shall I advertise? (2) Where shall I advertise? (3) How shall I ad? vertise? With a vast fund of knowledge and experience to draw on, a com? petent advertising agency can be of invaluable assistance, both in formulating plans and in carrying them into execution. A consultation Involves no obligation Empringham Sees Trick In Blue Sunday Crusade The Rev. Dr. James Empring? ham, national superintendent of the Church Temperance Society, SS St. Nicholas Avenue, in a let? ter sent yesterday to The Trib? une, said that he is not in favor of the Blue Sunday movement. "We suspect," he wrote, "that most of this agitation about a Blue Sunday is a trick of the liquor traffic to discredit the pro? hibition movement." He denied a statement which appeared in The Tribune on No? vember 29 to the effect that he was an agitator in behalf of the blue laws, and was a member of the Sabbath Day Alliance. "1 am not," he said, "nor have I ever been a member of this alliance." of the week,' the corresponding Greek is the word in that language for Sab? bath. Dr. Manning might well look that up." Bishop Burch's View Added testimony that the Episco? pal Ciiu re h frowns upon the blue law project, despite Secretary Bowl by's claim that the alliance has that denomination's backing, was contained in a statement yesterday from the Right Rev, (iiarles Sumner Burch, Bishop of New York. "1 do not believe the people of this country are going back to the New England blue laws," he said. "If what 1 have seen is correct the reformer.-; are going pretty far. This is a ques? tion our legislators should consider long and carefully and on which they should take the sanest possible- counsel. You cannot achieve morality by com? pelling people to give up what they believe are their constitutional rights. "We realize that people want bodily as well as spiritual refreshment, on Sunday. It seems to me that sanity is what we want. 1 hope these men will hesitate before they do anything so extraordinary as trying to prevent interstate cofnmerce on Sunday.'' Mr. Ferguson, who is going to Albany when tilt; Legislature convenes and lobby for the repeal of the Sunday sports and motion picture laws, also took a fall out of Samuel Gompers, who recently objected to the alliance con? veying the impression that labor up ]>;?><'. ed iis program. "Mr, Gompers states we have no right to say what tiie workingman shall i?o on Sunday," he declared, "but Mr. Gompers doesn't hesitate to saj what the workingman shall do on the other six days. He says how long he shall work and whether he shall work at all or h"t. "We deny the right of any one for his own pleasure to take away another mai ' - right to worship." "How does attendance on a Sunday ball game interfere with some one else's right to worship?" Mr. Ferguson v, as asked. "Mi 3t people have all the time they need during six days for that sort of thing-," he answered, "what with the i gl ? hour day and the Saturday half holiday. They are not apt to make use j of that time to improve their moral development." Dr. Ferguson's Infancy "And your idea is to see to it that they do improve their moral develop? ment on Sundays, regardless of whether they desire to do that, or to seek recre? ation on the golf links, for instance?" "Well," responded Mr. Ferguson, "take a small hoy, for instance. Now, a hoy likes to ko to a ball game. If ho is passing a field where a ball game is in progress on Sunday the chances are he will pet in and look at it. This is bad for him. If there were no ball game he couldn't do it. That's what We're after." No such opportunity to indulge in youthful depravity marred the infancy of the Rev. Mr. Ferguson, be made plain. "On the Iowa farm where I was raised," he said, "i- \.;. i my custom to sleep til! 8 or 8:30 Sunday mornings, instead of arising at ?! as on week days. 1 did the necessary chores and then walked three miles to church | and back. In the afternoon 1 read, took a nap and walked again to church in the evening-. At night we sat around at home. We had a delightful time. "of course, I can understand," he concluded, "how a city resident would ?: want to take a quiet walk on Sunday : ? after worship, or make a call on a i friend. I have no objection to that." Mr. Bcwlby intimate?: tr.a? the al- ; ! liance was rather well "heeled" for its i extensive nation-wide campaign. He I declined, however, to tell the amount , ! of its budget, or reveal the names of i any of the contributors. "It wouldn't be fair," he said. "Will you state whether or not John | D. Rockefeller *as givon anything to ! ! the cause?" he was asked. "I will not nay whether he has or I has not," Mr. Bowlby answered. "My | reason for that is that Mr. Rockefeller 1 might he a contributor without my i knowing it." Congress May Not Aid The Blue Law Advocates I Members Frown on Demands for Too Drastic L?gislation; ?

Selection of j Major General Wood, of the American army, for the post of commander in chief of the Armenian Expeditionary Force, should one be decided upon by the League of Nations, forecast in the cabled dispatch from Ralph Courtney, The Tribune's correspondent at Geneva, and printed exclusively in to-day's : Tribune, was the topic of general com? ment in official circles here to-day. Followed up as it was this afternoon i by the announcement that President Wilson has accepted the league's invi j tation to serve as mediator in the Ar I menian situation, Mr. Courtney's dis? patch was given added significance as I indicating that the United States may i serve either in the proci ss of orderly I mediation of the Armenian dispute or a i settlement by force of arms directed by | the senior major general of the Amer? ican army. Both at the War and State depart? ments it was frankly admitted that no ban existed against General Wood oc? cupying the post of high commissioner for Armenia, as suggested "by Genera! Sir Frederick Morris, of Croat Britain. in his report to the special League of Nations commission, by which the Armenian qu Jon is now being dis? cussed. Jt was said, however, that as far as reports reaching this govern ment of the deliberations at Geneva were concerned, no mention had been made of the possibility that General Wood might be tendered the invita? tion as commander of the international force suggested for operations in Armenia. Secretary Baker asked to be excused from commenting officially on the fu? ture assignment of General Wood, ?le \ claring that it would not be proper for him to be quoted on the plan until it he 1 been officially communicated to this government. He said, however, that no army regulation existed that would operate against the service of any distinguished American officer in a post created by the League of Nations.

The Armenian situ? ation has been one in which the War Department has long been interested, and there now exists in the files of the department the detailed report made on military requirements there in the event that this government should ac? cept the mandate over that nation. This report was made by Major General James C. Harbord at the special (li? the War Department.

General Wo?dj when shown the account of the offer as sent from Geneva by Ralph Courtney, of The Tribune, said : "This, of course, interests me, but I can say nothing concerning it' To all questions General Wood main? tained a smiling, lut impenetrable, exterior. "You undoubtedly have some senti? ment regarding the prospects of such an offer," he was asked. "Undoubtedly I have," the military commander replied, "Ves, no doubt I feel some sentiment in regard to this matter-, but I cannot discuss it; ab? solutely not." "Are you interested in the Armenian quest ion ?" "Oh, like hundreds of oilers," he asserted.
