Shipbuilding Director Will Al
dreea Cnmtlcn Board of Trade
I'reparatlons nre well under way fot
the big war rally of Industrial and busi
ness Interests to be held under the aus
pices of the Camden Uoard of Trade on
Thursday evening, June 6. In the Third
Regiment Armory, Camden. This event
takes the place of the annual shad din
ner Usually held at Clloucester, which
will be eliminated this year In the spirit
of wartime conservation,
In its stead will be held a great war
rally, at which the heads of Industries,
the retail business men and professional
men will get together and hear discus
sions of v.ar conditions tight down to
date from men who are In a position to
know the situation.
The principal spenkers will be Charles
M Schwab, director of shipbuilding, and
rteprcsentatlve Clarence ! Miller, of
Minnesota. Mr. Miller wn one of thn
congressional delegates sent to France
to study the situation there.
'Penrose Buncombe," Says ,
Senator of National Chair- ,
man's Coming Visit
Will It llas. Republican national
chairman, and others high In the
national councils nr the Republican
party will get a cool leccptlon from
the Vare forces when they come hero
on their proposed "harmony" expedi
tion. Senator Vare said sn himself, when
his attention was directed to reports
from Washington concerning the pro
posed visit of Republican chiefs to
"Penrose buncombe" was the way Sen
ator Vare dubbed dispatches from Wash
ington announcing the proposed visit of
Hays and others to Thlladelphla to
bring about a condition of harmony be
tween the warring Penrose and Vare
tongs In the Republican organization.
The leader of the Vare faction also sug
gested that "Hays ought to get busy
with him (Penrose) first," If he wishes
to have a united party In Pennsylvania.
In political circles the belief Is general
that the Vares will have no harmony
program unless It provides for their
recognition as the undisputed Republican
leaders of the city. I
They are said to be willing to forego I
their aspirations for a hand in the State
leadership, and, according to Senator
vares oft repeated assertions, have only
"mixed It up" with the Penrose forces In
the State because of the refusal of the
latter to recognize the Vares here.
"There Is nothing to harmonize," salfl
the Senator yesterday, ,"for the regular
Republicans In this city are all lined up
for the regular Republican ticket and
the regular Republican Organization.
"Don't make any mistake nbout this
stuff regarding the visit. It looks to me
like some more of that Penrose hunk
that we get often. Wo need no harmo
nlzers In this city and they might as
well know that first as last. For once
more I repeat there is nothing to har
monize." "We nre in good shape here, and
won't have any trouble In electing
Republicans to Congress from this city.
There was no contest against any mem
bers of the present delegation except
those inspired by Penrose, so Hays ought
to get busy with him first.
"The regular Republican organization,
too, will sec that the whole ticket Is
supported In fine Btyle, and It looks as
If the Republicans nil over the Stata
were In good shape, too."

Last year the Flrty-sixth Ward
committee Included a large number of
municipal employes, a number of whom
came directly under Major Smith. The
list made public by the Committee of
Seventy includes a half dozen Forty
sixth Ward men who are employed In
the Department of Public Works. In
this ward, where tne vare destinies are
cared for by Harry A. Mackey, there
were a number of registrations from
the ward commltteea by men who se
cured employment In municipal depart
ments. As most of the ward committeemen
earn their places through' being prac
tical politicians, and through a familiar
ity with the voters, their appointment
to office usually leads to renewed ef
forts on their part to carry divisions.
Thla fact was particularly noticeable on
May primary day, when City Hall was
