Maay Letters Reeelveit. Letters protesting against profi teering methods in the District are pouring into committee members with every mail. As yet. Senator Sherman stated, no large civic or other city organization has made any protest but he stated he ex pected such protests would come be fore the investigation had gotten very far. The two main items which the committee intends to rigidly investi gate. Senator Sherman said, are rentals and the cost of food. The committee will not attempt any other side-line investigations but will confine itself strictly to these items. The Saulsbury resolution, which was intended to stop profiteering In rents, will be the subject of an in vestigation along with the Pome rene measure and other similar acts iatroduced in Congress. Rental values in New oYrk. Philadelphia. Boston. Baltimore. Norfolk. Savan nah. Pittsburgh and many other rtastern cities will be compared with those of Washington. |R%e?llaatlon Postponed. The investigation which should have started yesterday was postponed un til next Mondey because the Depart ment of Commerce had not yet tabu lated it* figures in a form suitable to the committee. Senator Sherman stated that he was of the ojiinion that if the Bureau de cided to sell its surplus supplies, the sales would be so conducted that there would be little or no temptation on the part of the big food combine to overbid, and thereby corner th** matket on these particular products. The sales, he intimated, would be in reasonably small quantities, such. a:* would not tend to glut the market or allow too much of one kind of a p?xduot to he on the market at once | In any one locality. There is no way. Senator Sherman J said, to prevent, in competitive bid ding. the inroads of the hi* packers and provision merchants If they were really intent on keeping up prices. The Bureau would be forced to sell to the highest and most satisfactory bidder for any or all of the product marketed when it was offered for sale. Therefore these sales, when made, will be < onducted in the interests of the consumer rather than the concern able to huv up and hold the different food products.

FATHER'S IN THE KITCHEN NOW HALF MILLION WORDS TELL AMERICAN LABOR'S HISTORY My \N 11.1,1 \ >1 C. ROBERTS "An oflkial history of the American I Federation of I^abor.'' the most re markable labor book ever printed, is I on the presses and will be ready soonJ for distribution. It will contain 550J pages of 1.000 words each. Every im portant act of the trade union inove-l ment in the life of the Federation is recorded in the language of the reso lutions adopted and the speeches made by the delegates to convention-*. Each subject is carried through the j thirty-eight years since the Fed- ! oration was organized and appears in the Dook in encyclopedic form. The historical introduction points cut the marvelous growth of the trade union movement, its hopes and aspirations. The trade union movement is for the benefit of not only its members but for the betterment of the stand ard of living of'all the people. This is emphasized in the foreword, which declares: ?"The trade unions are the only or ganizations on earth that have as their true mission the betterment of the economic condition of all the peo ple. No one ever has come forward with even a suggestion of a plan for human advancement that can take ?the place of trade union activity." The first principle of the labor move ment is to gain higher wages and a shorter workday, which are de clared to be "the preliminary steps j toward ;rreat and accompanying im-, provement in the condition of the , working people." It has persistently j demanded compulsory education and' the elimination of child labor. Every < movement that would benefit the home i has been supported, if not originat- I ed. in its ranks. Throughout the entire work the reader can feel -tie wonderful per sonality of Samuel Gompers. For more than half a century he has made the advancement of humanity his sole . aim. Those who know him believe that every atom of his brain and body . Is instilled with trade unionism; that, his one thought is for the cause he so long has upheld. That this is tru? can be best shown by quoting his own Idea of the movement: G?mprni DencrlWn Movement. "This labor movement has laid hold : of the hearts of men ??nd women. It! is a symbol of those thine* that are j best in life. Tt is a real living thing | which the toilers love and cherish, i And the soul of the movement is the j hearts and lives of those who have j built themselves into it by sacrifice j and toil." No one can read the book without, believing that trade union activity. . the economic power of labor, is re-j sponsible for the present improved j condition of the manses of our people. J Political labor parties have been | shunned. These who have sought toJ divert the labor movement into a j partisan labor party left nothing un- j i done to accomplish their purpose, but! always failed. Gompers. with his j 'able followers, always defeated these. attempts to change the policy of the] ' American labor movement to that, , followed In England. And during the] past few months the American poli cies have proved to he right, as the! rank and file of British labor have | appropriated them and are winning successes. Politle* Absorbed Energy. In that country for many years a political labor party has absorbed all' ! the energy of the rank and fl'e ! labor to the sacrifice of their economic : advancement. Trade union activity | was suppressed. The entire strength of the unions was used to place a few labor "leaders" in Parliament. After they got there that was the end of j their activity in the interest of the rank and file. The worklngmen con-] ! tlnued to toil long workdays for low wares. They lived in plasterless , ! houses in congested districts. Their I lot contlnuel to grow worse Instead , of better. In fact, this was empha sized by Robert SralUIe. president of j the Federation of Miners of Great Britain, who. in an address Jo the j Rochester convention of the Federa tion in 1914, made this amazing con-j fession: "It is not true that the workers in j Gfeat Britain are securing anything lifce a fair proportion of the Increased I wealth produced from year to year by | labor compared to our national re sources. The wage? of labor Is prac tically stationary and has been for many years, but the wages of the land- j lord class has gone op by leaps and bounds every year." Tricked by "Intellectual*." This created a senaatlon among the 600 delegates who had been urged by certain "Intellectuals" year after year to go into partisan politics by form ing a labor party after the plan of the Knglish movement. Sraillle's confes sion proved the value of the American i labor policy and pointed out the fail ure of the English. President Gom i pers in reply called attention to the great improvement in the standard of j living in this couttry. which, be 1 contended, was cottlnually going forward. This, he laid, had been secured through the activities of the trade unions, and added: "I aay for myself tint if I were con v I need that the American labor union j Us impotent to be of service to my fel lows I would quit it tnd abandon the 1 organization to its ju*tft?br? fate." And now over in England they are following the policy 0f the American labor movement by easting aside the! labor politicians and using their eco nomic power to gaip concessions.

It also unclogs the pores, re moving blackheads and increasing the skin's breathing capacity.

Workers in the 8t John's College Extension Campaign crowded head quarters at the Harrington Hotel last night, when a mass meeting was held to give the men and women engaged in the work final instructions and ar range to more fully canvass the su burban districts and various bureaua throughout the city. Reports showed that since Satur day the undertaking has received a decided impetus and the executive committee now feels that the $150,000 started after will be realized by the time the limit is reached July IT. Rather than leave each of the team leaders to their own initiative as in the past, it was decided last night to hold further meetings at which each is to receive the benefit of the expe riences of the ether, but each chief of a section will be called upon to furnish daily reports of receipts as in the past.
