Welcome to the Advertising Men NEW YORK UNIVERSITY is host to-day to members of the Natior.ai Association of Teachers of Advertising, who are holding a sectional confer? ence in this city while a similar conference for Western mem? bers is held at the University of Wisconsin. ? am glad to wel? come the members of tnis Asso? ciation. Since I have been writing these little talks I have gained a feel? ing ot warmer sympathy with all advertising men and their work. I have learned some? thing of the fascinations?as well as the difficulties?of the profession. I think I understand better the economic value of this great business force now that it has enabled me to talk three times a week for tue past five weeks to some 600 000 friends of New York University?and all at a fraction of the cost of sending each of them a single postcard. I can appreciate the reasons that impel anv manufacturer to spread abroad through the col? umns of our newspapers and magazines the information about his worthy products. I can be? lieve, too, that this information is often of real service to the public in gui -ine; them to wise decisions regarding their ex? penditures and investments. Many advertising men, I am to'd, were formerly teachers. The two professions seem to me to have a great deal in common. Advertising men have it in their power to educate millions of people not only in an intelligent use of commodities but in well considered habits of thought and action. The force of advertising, like other powerful forces, is no dO"bt in so^e case? "sed wrong ? fuMy as well as unwisely, but I I.-v e become convinced that the light o? publicity is generally a afeguard for fhosr who seek p-eru'ire service as well as for tHose who render it. I be'ieve also, that the teachers cf aJvertis:ng can make a valu .b! " con'n ution to the educa L?>n of "?ur futnre business men by ; ?.- hing the n hew to use trie force of advertising intelli? gently effectively, and for the hen? El of ! um?nity. Their con? ference to day has o r best wishes ? rty support. Chancellor, New York University. 26 King Street, St. James's I ordern Objects o?

(?? atores) $100,000 for I Transit Law Attack Denied ?Aldermen, in Lively Bat? tle in Fiml Session of Present Board, Refuse to Vote for Appropriation . Urged hy La Guardia I Ferrand and Quiiui De? fend Republican Party Against President's Attack Funeral exorcises, so termed by sev I eral of the retiring aldermen, were ?' held yesterday for the 1921 Board of ? Aldermen at its last meeting in City Hall. The ceremony, however, devel? oped into a lively wake before the last speech of farewell was mnde. Major F. II. La Guardia, president of the board, arrived on the steamship Mex? ico from Havana in time to roach the a dermanic chamber and add to the excitement by attacking the Republican members. The retiring aldcrmanic president came in and relieved Vice-Chairman j Kcnneally of the chair during n heated I discussion of the application of John j P. O'Brien, Corporation Counsel, for ?$100,000 to pay the expenses for the test the city is making in the courts of the constitutionality of the Transit Commission law. Most of thc*Kepnb iican members had voted against the appropriation and the required fifty five votes were not forthcoming for its passage. Major La Guardia requested an immediate reconsideration of the cote. He admonished the Republicans to stand by their former declarations for home ru.e and vote for the appro? priation. La Guardia Warns Republicans "Don't vote this resolution down six weeks after election," said the Alder manic President. "Every member of t is side of t.:e house stated to the electors before election that he be? lieved in home rule. Now* that you have an opportunity to show that you are for hume rule vote for,this reso? lution. The Republican party is either to stand by home rule or you are go? ing to ?ose the confidence of tiie people forever." Referring to George McAneny, chair? man of tne Transit Commission, Pres? ident La Guardia said he did not care , hat he said about the proposed transit plan. He declared t at Mr. McAneny was the author of the "preferential, tne mas disgrace?u) thing that ever happened in this city." The question f increased fare was at stake, he said and had not been disposed of. With only a few more days in office, he de? clared he wanted to leave and "be able t lo k the people of the city in the . ace." Alderman August Ferrand, Republi ?.m minority leader, who goes out with the present b.-ard, in replying to La G aruia declared that he had no apolo? gies to make for the Republican party. Praise for Governor Miller ' Xo individual, or set cf individuals, is bigger than the Republican party, ' sa?d Aidorman Feriand. "i am proud oi the Republican party and the; Re? publican Governor, and I'm going t as:i the Repub ?cans in this board to oppose this resolution and stand by the Repul lican party and Governor Miller." Alderman William F. Quinn support? ed Al .erman Feriand s attitude. He decii rod that t. e diff?rence between the Democratic paity and the Repub? lican party was tnat tiie Democrats s ood for the appeal to the mob and popularity while the Republicans stood for c instruction. He said he was proud of such a Govi mor as Mr. ?rlillcr, who was tying to solve a problem that the Democratic city administration has been trying lo solve for four yeais w.thout success. "We have no loar of Mr. La Guardia's stand on this question," said Alderman I Quinn, 'if he til remains a Republi? can. I'll say ti at in l'J22 Governor Mil I 1er will be remoninated and re-elected ?and will, some day. probably be elected i ? sidi nt of the Unite.: States." 1 clcrm n L. Vladeek, ?ocialist. said that he believed "Governor Miller is the best Republican Governor Tam? many Hall ever had." The Socialist Alderman said that the resolution had givi i. the retiring i resident of the board a chance be o;e the board and j he didn't blame him for taking advan take of the o? portunity. Resolution Is Lost. "I'd rather give J ihn P. O'Brien C r oration Counsel) $?00,000 to cat !.. own t'.ir-..'. than to <rive him a ? ? to,' said Alderman Jacob W Friedman hepublican. "if $100 000 vv ! reme ly the evil I'm for gi .'ing it to him and lettinp him hove ?11 the rope he wants to hung himself." A second roll ca 1 .ailed to got the required nnmher of votes, and the reso? lution was lost, ncticall; nil the Aldermen who failed of re-election in November, or o> ome oth< r reason do not continue In Bervlce next year, delivered faro well nddrcssea, saying nice things ?about their political opponent? nnd ex* | ,,i.. ,.,.;,,,. Happy New Years, While the Republican membership in the i rnsonl 1 board was cut down from twenty-six to twelve at the la t olection, there : re ! several veteran Democratic Aldermen retiring. Michael Stanteton, Democrat, "rom the odd 2d Aldormanic Dis? trict, Manhn't^u Is the oldest in sorv ice of the retiring Aldermen in the board, having represented the district I for eighteen years. | William P. Kennea'ly. Democrat, with ' I twelve years' service from the "Gas ! House District" and Vice-('h airman of 1 the board, is on the retired list. John F. McCourt, Democrat, from the 5th District, with ten years' service, was legis'ated out of office by the reap portionmont, as was Bernard Donnelly, with eight venrs of service from the old 1st District. No Socialists on New Board The only Republican of long standing to leave the b ard is August Fcrrand, ! of the 45th District, Brooklyn, who was defeated for re-election by lesa than 300 votes after ten years of service. The five Socialist Aldermen, who havo represented the Socia is1 party for the last six years, were also defeated for re-election. The new board, which meets January 2 for organization, wil! be composed of fifty-three Democrats and twelve Republicans. In the retir? ing board there are thirty-seven Demo? crats, twenty-six Republicans and five ! Socialists. Alderman Quinn, who is coming back, interrupted the otherwise affable ex i change of courtesies and New Year's greetings by renouncing that he undor : stood the Democrats, "drunk with i power," were planning to seat the twoive Republican aldermen next year in the back row cf the large Aldermanic Chnmber He pointed hi remarks at Alderman Charles A. McManus, who at a ' ??! ? ; oi the Dsmocrats yesterday was chosen to arrange the seating for ii lew o rd "The Republican aldermen have the sime right, in th. s board as the Dem? ocrats," said Alderman Quinn; "but I understand the Democrats, drunk with power, have decided that the best seats we can get arc in the last row, where we can't hear anything at all. They are not giving tis as much considera? tion as the Socialist aldermen have had." A'derman McManus said when he en? tered the board in 1916 and the Re? publicans were in power, he had to be si tVcd with a scat in the back row. ? He said, however, lie would take the matter up with some of the other Dom crate aldermen nnd ree if the condition complained o? could rot be remedied. Alderman William T. Col ins, majority leader, who was re r'iM-rri -n-i a ti1(. Democrats' choice) i for vice-chairman netx year, closed a j tu? ci s ...s on o the subject by j r>romiR;n? the "twelve IDtlo Renubli i cans" they would have the choice of I seats on the minority side of the house. Farewell of La Guardia In his farewell address to the board President La Guardia complimented ? 11 the members for their respectful ;nd fa:r treatment of him as presid? ing officer. He declared, iio.v, ver, hat he had sperit sjme o' the hup? est m ments of his two years' scrv 'ce on the flo >r of the chamber lie admonished the.aldermen to guard their o vu powers and use them more by hemselves and not run to tiie Cor? poration Counsel, or other outside sources, for advice. He took occasion to define his own Republicanism to his political colleagues n the boaHl. "Some of my Republican associates may not have quite understood my Republicanism," said Major La Guar? dia. "It is the Republicanism of the future. The times are changing; The eople of to-day are thinking more. The ideals of to-day may not be the deals of to-morrow. It isn't anything to be called a demagogue if you are not one. We must progres'. We want to see things go forward. We mustn't b afraid to criticize our own political family if the family is wrong-, New '?"or.-; is the greatest c'ty in the world, the wealthiest and the most powerful, but the message 1 would like to leave with you ?s to strive to make it the happiest city in the world."

Smith to Lead Fijjht for Port Bill at Albany Former Governor's Battle in Legislature !s Expected to Leave ??ylan Alone in Opposition to Measure! Hearst Fend Charge Made j Miller Has Worked Out) Plan for Development of j Water Power in State Former Governor Alfred F. Smith will make a personal light before the Legislature for the Port Authority bill, it was learned yesterday. The. former Governor's arguments in behalf of the measure, which aims at developing New York Harbor on a com prehensive plan, it was predicted, would leave Mayor Dylan alono in his opposi- j tion to the project. One of the Tammany legislative, cadera, who has been watching Mayor Ilylan's constant attacks on the Port; Authority program, said yesterday that he doubted if there, would be a Demo? cratic member of either the Senate or! Assembly with the Mayor after Mr., Smith made his plea for the legisla-! tion. The Port Authority bill, which has i for its ultimate aim the scientific dis? tribution of all freigilt arriving in this t port, thus lowering prices to the con? sumer, is drafted and will be intro? duced at the opening session of the Legislature. Not until the two houses have set a date for pub'ic hearing will Mr. Smith make his appearance in Al? bany. It is expected that this will be not later than the middle of February, and friends of the ex-Governor are look- I ing forward to the hearing to eveal the real purpose of Mayor Hylan'a opposition, which they charge is due to a desire on the part of the Mayor and j William Randolph Hearst to eliminate \ Mr, Smith from politics. Mayor's Sudden Opposition More th n 100 . r ran z ti ?? s ?tally interested in the development of New York Harbor have indorsed the Port Authority plan. The only opposition to date has come from Mayor Hylan and Murray llulbert, the retiring Dock Commisisoner. Neither Mr, Hulbert nor the Mayo ? opposed the legislation creating the Port Authority when it was before the Lcgis ature last spring. Another subject of large economic importance which the next Legislature will consider is the development of the water power of the state. Governor Miller has spent considerable time this summer on this ma'ter. and it is known tl at his views have been whipped into shape and will be ready for intro? duction a week from to-day. The Democrats ..ave decided to rein troduce the Walker-Men igan hydro? electric amendment of last year. This provides for the deve opment of the water power by the state and the sale of the electric energy d'rect to the consumers, public and private, thus eliminating the private water power owners. Plan for Supply Purchase One of the measures which the Gov? ernor will press for pis age in the in? terest of economy is the creation of a ?tata purchasing agency ?hrough which all supp.ies for the state will be ob? tained. One of its functions will be ?he standardizing of supplies. There ha.s been attempt made, under the or? der of the < oveir.or ti the heads of his various department. , to bring about a standardization of j-oods bought by the state, with the result that consid? erable saving: hive been effected through, this means. Another bil, which the Albany law? makers wili enact into law will provide for a literacy test f >r voters. Still an? other, which a so carries out the man d .te of the people at the last -Mec j0n. will extend the powers and scope of children'- courts and courts of domes? tic relations. The so diers' bonus, which will re? quire $40,000.000, undoubtedly will be taken care if by a Constitutional amendm. nt providing for the issuance of long term bonds. Some of the veterans arc against this o-i the ground that it would mean a two years- wait and are for levying a direct uix to r .i.-e the money imme? diately. A direct !,ix would mean the a dition of an >ther four mi.is on each dollar of assessed realty value. It is becau: e of the hardship ?hat this would impose on property holders that the ,ong term bjnd issuo is being favored. Tho Dem?crata have adopted an elab? orate legislativo program. They will introduce a measure repealing the law which wiped out the direct primary law! in so far aa it affected candidates for | state-wide office and the judiciary. ( They also will demand the repeal of the ' Knighl-Adler laws en ating the Transit Commission und tho Public Service Commission. The proposed amendment Introduced at the last session by Sonutor William T. .Simpson, Republican, of Brooklyn, giving cities and villages home rulo will be hacked by the Democrats at the next Bcssion. The Democrats had one i of their own last year, but they not only prefer tho Simpson amendment, but believe that it would be political strategy to support it. Another legislative plan of Republi? can origin, the so-called reconstruction program, in which Charles E. Hughes had a large hand in shaping, also will be pressed for passage by the Demo? crats. This provides for a four-year term of the Governor, an executive budget and the shortening of the ballot by the election of only four state offi? cial!), the Governor, Lieutenant ?ov ernor, Controller and Attorney Gen? eral. No decision hns been reached by th? Democrats on wet legislation. They are inclined to drop the 4 per cent beer bill until Congress liberalizes the Vol? stead act. Formal sanction by the Legislaturo of the practice now common in all po litci-il parties of electing women as members of county and state commit? tees will be sought by the Democrats, i A formal legislative program has not i been adopted by the Republicans, as they are waiting to shape their actions by the messages from the Governor. Wider Home Rule Urged At, Mayors9 Conference Demands for Legislation Which \ Would Permit Reduction of Tax Burdens /0e Adopted Special Dispatch to The Tribune ALBANY, Dec. 27.-?Demands for legislation which would permit cities to reduce their tax burdens and also allow a greater degree of municipal heme rule arc the outstanding features of tho 1922 legis ative program adopted to-day by the New Yoik State Confer? ence of Mayors. The conference also favors a tax revision to eliminate the present "chaotic" conditions in the taxing of public utilities. Another section urges legislation to permit localities to enter into service at cost agreement with street railway com? panies opei ating within their respec? tive precincts "It is estimated that the receipts ?r< m the sta e income tax in 11)22 will be at least 10 per cent less than they were in 1.21 and we are warned that there will be a reduction of about 25 per cent in the cities' share of the ranchise tax on the net incomes of corporations," says the legis ative state? ment. 'There also ?s a possibility that the cities will lose the revenue from the bank stock tax. The financial con? dition of the cities, therefore, demands disapproval by the Legislature of all mandatory bil s which will in any way increase the cost of city government and appeal to the Legislature to enact no laws which will compel cities to spend more public funds. "We urge an en. bling act. not man? datory in any respect, which sha I em? power an city or incorporated village or town in the ?tate to enter into a serv ce-at-cost agreement w th tue street railway company operating v\ith ia Its respective limits. "We urge tin- enactment of a law of a permissive or enabling character which will enip wer cities to ass.st traction companies to finance the cost of constructing their share of street paveme ts bj making it possible for the traction companies to pay their assessments annually in the sanie man? ner as abutting property owners along tiie line of such improvement. The cities are opposed t.i tue repeal of the law requiring traction corporations to construct mu? maintain pavements be? tween and two feet on e.ther s.de of their tracks." The cities also ask (hat laws be passed regulating the weight of motor trucks operating in cities sim 1 r to tu se governing the weight of trucks operating on state highwa s. They a.s.. seek an amendment to the aut" mobile law wnich would permit them to share .n atttomo >ile license fees.

Having refused uO co-operat? with the Transit Commission, which plans an exclusive passenger tunnel between Brooklyn and Richmond, Mayor Dylan is determined to go ahead with a tun? nel project of his own. To accomplie this the Board of Estimate will auk an additional appropriation for a mar ginal railroad on Staten Island to con nect with tho tunnel authorized undor the Smith bill at Albany last winter. According to transit experti, the move of the city will not only tend to conflict with the plans of the Port Authority for n combined freight and passenger tunnel and with those >f the Transit Commission for n passenger nrtcry under the Narrows, but will ! heap an added burden upon the tax payers without affording relief for tho transit problem.
