CONTRACTORS TO COVENANT AGAINST FEES Gregory Recommends Plan to End Growing Evil in U. S. Buying. Attorney General Gregory recom mended to the head* of all depart ments of the government today a covenant In contract# which la de signed to end the contingent fee sya tem In all government contracts. It la eatlmated that mllllona of dollara will be saved both to the government and contractors by the elimination of the middleman In the negotiation of government contracta. The recommendation followed ralda all over the country for the purpoae of seizing papera of Arms and In dividuals having governmtnt con tracta. These papera reveal the exlat ence of a system by which the con tractor have been bulldozed and made to pay over a large ahare of their earnings, and purchasing officers of the government have suffered In reputation by the imputation or direct claim that they could be influenced. Abase of Prominent ITames. In practically all the papers seized it is clear that the use of the names of Members of Congress, prominent government officials and purchasing officers was unauthorized and unwar ranted. The object of the Department of Justice la to put a stop to the sys tem and end a growing evil. Whero there is evidence of a conspiracy in the negotiation of a contract, the cases will be probed to the bottom and ! prosecutions undertaken. Some contractors who appear to have wilfully violated the provision against paying contingent fees will suffer by having their contracts can celed and the amount paid in illegal fees deducted from the amount still | due them. Attorney General Gregory asks that | the following form of covenants, whloh the President requests, will be Inserted in all government contracts. Form of the Agreement. "The contractor expressly warrants that he has employed no third persons to solicit or obtain this contract in his behalf, or to cause or procure the same to be obtained upon compensa tion In any way contingent, in whole or In part, upon such procurement: and that he has not paid, or promised or agreed to pay, to any third per sons, in consideration of such procure ment or for compensation for services in connection therewith, any broker age commission or percentage upon the amount receivable by him here under, and that he has not, in esti ! mating the contract price demanded j by him, included any sum by resson of any such brokerage commission or percentage, and that all moneys pay able to him hereunder are free from I obligation to any other person for | services rendered, or supposed to ! have been rendered, In the procure ment of this contract. "He further agrees that any breach of this warranty shall constitute ad equate cause for the annulment of this contract by the United States, and that the United States may re tain to its own use from any sums due or.to become due thereunder an amount equal to any brokerage, com mission or percentage ao paid, or agreed to be paid." (As an additional protection the heads of departments are requested to adopt as a regulation the follow ing language taken from Section 3722, page, 735, Revised Statutes, as applied to the Navy Department: "And no person shall be received as a contractor who is not a manu facturer of or regulsr dealer in the | articles which he offers to supply.'* ITALIAN PATRIOTISM ROUSED THROUGH ART Statues and Paintings Carry War Idea to Population. The artistic nature, as well as the patriotism of the Italian rural popu lation. is appealed to with a wide spread art propaganda inaugurated by the committee for the relief of the mutilated, with headquarters in Milan. Bronze statuettes, panels, posters and paintings picturing heroic feats of the Italian army and otherwise bringing home to the rural population the necessity of carrying on the war to a successful end are being display ed in country stores and at the cross roads. The ruthlessnesa of the foe which Italy is fighting and the im placable hatred of the Huns for Italy, who consider that that country was the main obstacle in the way of their path toward a decided victory In the early months of the war, is being for cibly brought home to the rural popu lation by these numerous artistic, ed ucational exhibits. The committee also is publishing a series of artistic postcards for circula tion among the soldiers, emphasizing the absolute necessity from the stand, point of Italian welfare for aiding the cause of the allies to the very limit of Italian power. These postcards are being distributed to the soldiers In con siderable numbers, so that they can, in turn, send them to their relatives and friends, thus reaching the most remote nooks and corners of Italy Thus, the propaganda reaches places that would be missed by speakers and printed messages. Knowledge of the real causes of the war and the impor tance of fighting It through to a vic torious end Is most needed in these remote rural quarters. The most famous artists of Italy are volunteering their services for this patriotic undertaking.

It tha ever-Increasing (hipping facilities permit heavier ove.ieas movement! of troop* and consequent large draft call*, Claaa 1 may be uaed up before January 1. Any ef 3,000,000 Aanrt L I Including June calls, approximately 1,600,000 draft men have been called to the colore. The July calla mil bring thl* number up to nearly 2,000.900. Gen. Crowder has told the Senate Military Affair* Committee that the July calls would aggregate 290,000. With 2,000,000 draft men under arms by the end of July and the 1.000,000 In I the regular army and the Notional Guard, the strength of the American army by August 1 will be 2,000.000 men I Another 1,000,000 men can be fur nlahed by the draft system without necessitating an Invasion of the de ferred classes. I A registration of 10.688.249 between the ages of 21 and 48, both Inclusive. Is estimated by Gen. Crowder. From 18 to 20, both Inclusive, he would ex pect to enroll ?,0lfr,063. Nlnety-slx per cent of the men between 11 and 20 are not married. It Is estimated while 77 per cent of the men between 21 and 45 are believed to be married The number of single men between 21 and 46, therefore. Is expected to be 3,525,472, and between 18 and 30 there should be 2.963.581. Total ef 8.000,000. Figuring on a basis of the percent age of acceptances In the first regis tration, Gen. Crowder would count on registration of the men between 31 and 45 producing 1,389,838 lighting men. while the 18 to SO registration should produce 1,167,947. or a total of z.557 283 With the present available total of 4,000,000, the extension of the draft age* to 18 and 45 would allow for an enlargement of the army to more than 6,500,000, without disturbing the industrial, agricultural or domestic conditions of the country. "'The only legislation recessary to extend the draft ages." said Senator Chamberlain, chairman of the Senate Military Affairs Committee, "is simply to amend the section of the draft act defining that men betwen 21 and 31 shall be drawn. Hoaae Might Oppose. "I have heard no discussion on the subject In the Senate Committee, and no intimations have come to me from the War Department that a change Is contemplated. But It would be a good thing." The Senate Committee seems to favor a change In the ages. While the general trend seems to be more towards raising the draft age than lowering It, there are still advocates of making the minimum limit 18 years old. on the theory that above 31. a man's life begins to be mould- I ed and he Is engaged In affairs, the disruption of which would cause I economic loss. The House was more bitter against extentlon of the draft age last year I than was the Senate, and it is ex pected that If any move Is made, the I chief opposition will arise In the lower body.

CASTOR IA For Infants and ^11^ In Use For over 30 Years FARMERS ASK CONGRESS TO LET LABOR IN Would Suspend Immigra tion Laws During the War. That harvesting of crops wtll be retarded this season because of an acuta shortage In the foreign labor field was the assertion yesterday of tha presidents of five farmers' unions who sent to Congress a pe tition asking that body to suspend all immigration laws for the period of the war, that interfere with labor coming to work in factories, farms and in all pursuits necessary to , winning the war. 5,000.000 Needed. There is at present shortage of five million farm laborers in this country, the committee of union heads declared. Unless steps ars taken at once to provide for addi tional help western crops will suf fer, It is declared. The petition of the farmers reads, in part, as fol lows: "Wi are taking the liberty of pe titioning to Congress for suspension, during the period of the war, of all Immigration laws that interfere with labor coming into the United States to work on our farms, in our factories and in all pursuits neces sary to winning the war. We re quest that a law be passed by Con gress covering ths subject as set forth in our petition. You will fur ther oblige us if in framing the bill no doubtful language, uncertain phrases or seditious limitation be employed, or that any disloyal amendments be permitted. "We realize that no law is any stronger than the men who enforce it and we ask that the administration of this law be placed in the hands of its friends. Great Labor Pherfage. ?"There is a shortage of man power on the farms of the United States of at least 6,000,000 laborers. We have over 2.000,000 women working in the field and necessity is daily driving more mothers from the cradle to the plow. These noble women have not become companions to the ox tor profit or as patriotic service to their country. But they are serving an in terminable sentence to hard labor im posed upon them by our Immigration laws. In addition to penalizing the womanhood of our State and nation these laws turn thousands of acres ot good farm land into legal deserts and place a statutory handicap upon the productive capacity of every farm. No | one benefits by this law and its only I effect will be to make society incor rigible; the farmer ungrateful to gov ! crnment, and it even threatens with hunger those who are fighting the battles of democracy. "The draft is rapidly increasing the labor shortage. We now have a har vest upon us which can not be gath ered with the present labor supply, and unless labor is in some manner provided much of our production will rot in the field. There may be losa!W> ties in whick the labor supply 'a suffi cient, but the country as a whole is suffering severely." CABINET TALKS U. S. TELEGRAPHS, REPORT Western Union Said to Have Cant ed Control Trend. Government control of telegraph lines is understood to have been brought squarely to an Issue at yes terday's Cabinet meeting.

Ten days aco. President Wilson 1n a letter addressed to the officials of both the Western Union and the Postal Telegraph urged the ac ceptance of the decision for the period of the war. The Postal Tele graph Company, through Clarence H. Mackay, Its president, agreed to the rroposal. The reply from President Carlton, of the Western Union, is regarded as a purely technical objection to the manner In which the War I^abor Board reached Its decision. He as serts that five of the twelve mem bers of the board voted against it when there should have ben a unanimous vote to make the de cision binding. President Carlton also charged that, , although the unions had waived the ' ' right to strike during the war period. ! they were planning to organize with] .sufficient strength to "demoralize dis cipline" when released from this I ? promise. As a counter suggestion, he 1 urged recognition of an association j 'of Western Union employes. I The letter asserted there is no j danger of a telegraphers' strike and ! that the company feels it would not [be doing Justice to the public if it permitted an outside union to inter fere with its work. The Carlton letter is understood to have materially strengthened Senti ment in the Cabinet favoring govern ment control of all telegraph lines.
