Very attractive rates are offered. What is he to do? If he wishes to speculate, he should get the best information and advice that he can and then plunge and takevhis chances.

Other suggestions were that newspapers conserve space In their columns and ec save newsprint paper by reducing tht site of heads nnd the size of typo used In display advertising. Many of tho newspaper owners who have for yenrs taken a prominent part In the conventions nf the publishers' associations aie absent from this year's convention. The conditions of publlca tlons nre so critical In the various cities where, their papers are Issued that they have not dared leave their management to other hands during convention week, The association's bureau of advertis ing met at luncheon yesterday and lis tened, nmong other speakers, to E. T. Meredith, Secretary of Agriculture. Mr. Meredith requested the newspaper pro prietors and editors present to discour age the critics of public departments who are constantly trying to break Into print with attacks on governmental work which they have never studied and which they do not understand.

In cluding many well known New York commuters, as wll as th pupils of the Plalnfleld High School, adopted the cult. They nre expected to be followed by other Plalnfleld schools. Reflecting tho uttltude of the clothing manufacturers toward the popular move ment, tho Dally News Kecord reports thnt one of the largest manufacturers of overalls In the Southwest, the Red Dia mond Clothing Company of St. Louie, has begun a campaign of advertising protesting against the crusade ns unfair io the men who are compelled to wear such garments at all times. At a weekly meeting of the Retail Clothiers and Furnishers Association of New York State the prevailing opinion was that the movement Is merely a passing fad a.nd will fall of its own weight. MoTcmeut Still Spreading. Meantime, however, It seems to be spreading llko the green bay tree. In the national capital tho staid House Olllce Building was stirred with a touch of Jazz by six young women secretaries, who enrolled as the newest recruits In Representative Upshaw'sOvuralls Brigade. Appearing In blue denim trousers, the ends of which were well rolled up above their high heeled P'i..ips, the young women created a mild sensation and soon ac cumulated a large following aa they tripped coyly through the corridors. Multicolored shirt waists and silk stock ings relieved the eombre uniformity of the breeches. Assistant Postmaster-General Koons issued an order Instructing nil city post masters to permit letter carriers, when a majority so desire, to wear gtay over alls of denim Instead of the usual ser vice postal uniforms. It Is specified that they must be "laundered at least once a week." In Princeton University the Senior Council issued an order permitting freshmen, sophomores and Juniors to wear blue deflm. Seventy-five students already havo discarded fashionable spring models In one nnd two button suits for the slmplisslnuis attire. Otheri say they would do so but for tho fact that all the neighboring towns are stripped bare of the more favored ma terials. Contending that overalls clubs ato con)pot,cd for the most part of men who can afford better apparel, the Trade and Labor Assembly of Sandusky, Ohio, in resolutions requests tho public 'to con serve denim in the interest of the labor ing man." The workers say the price lias Jumped since Jumpers became fash ionnble from $3.50 to $7 or more. High school students In Parkcrsburg, W.
