The Reclassification
Two Months' Extension Will
. Be Barely Enough
Denial that the Reclassification Com- i
mission is considering recommending i
to Congress the "slashing of some I
salaries to bring about equality," was j
voiced by Commissioner Edward i
Keating last night.
"It Is absurd." ?aid Mr*. Keating. I
**the Commission has not considered
the question of salaries in any way,
sfcape or form."
Henry Allen Cooper, another mem- |
ber of the Commission, said "it's the i
first I've heard of it."
Mr. Keating explained that the Com
' mission does not want to be placed I
ir. the position that all salaries should j
be Increased and that if it is found j
any government employe is receiving
more than he is entitled to his salary '
will, of course, be reduced.
"But sp far as our deciding to rec
ommend a reduction to Congress, that
is ridiculous." said Mr. Keating, "be-j
cause we have never discussed the '
subject of salaries."
"The commission," he said, "was not
appointed for the express purpose of
increasing salaries The law. under !
Which the commission was created,
makes tt our duty to find a rair an 1 i
equitable salary for each emnloye.
"So far we have confined ourselves
to the general principles, such as wa?r<*
policies, data on the investigaticn of
the cost of living and passing on surne
class specifications."

ernment service into almost sixty dif- .

"I saw every good show In Paris,"
said Kurseman today, "and I do i
not think stockings were worn in a
single one. Sandals and slippers only
were to be seen on the stage."
He ventured the opinion that the
high cost of Jewelry, in which French
women are investing in a riot of
extravagance, may have had some

"As a matter of fact." said Kurse

"Some years ago 1 thought the

adopted, however. I think that it
may be the same way with hose.
The movement probably will begin
on the stage. Then, next summer,
women will be seen at the bathing
beaches without stockings. The
fashion will be introduced very
gradually. There will be nothing
spasmodic about it."
And when the novelty comes, ac
cording to Kurseman. the women
will not be able to find needed j
warmth in long skirts?for with the |
vanishing of the stockings skirts
are to be shortened. Apparently
women must seek bodily comfort in

Democrats Challenged
To Follow Wilson or
Bryan on Treaty Issue
the contract he signed, yet he wss j
overruled and compelled to submit,
against his will, to reservations.
Former Governor Folk, of Missouri.!
who appeared at tho Capitol yester-!
day to discuss the Bryan idea wfth
Senators, said that "the logic of the|
situation is all with Bryan. He knows j
that the party would be split wide
open if the treaty is made an issue, i
So do the Democratic Senators who
are coming up for re-election. They
realize the difficulty that confronts
them if they have to face their con
stituents on the issue as defined by
the President."
Firm on Article Ten.
During the day Senator Lodge was
reported to have intimated to several
of the mild reservation Senators that
he would not object to a slight change
in the preamble of his reservations
and a redrafting of the l^enroot res
ervations on equality of voting in the
General Assembly, but that he would
stand firmly for4 Article Ten as con
tained in his reservations.
A canvass of Senators yesterday
shows unmistakably that Mr. Bryan's
advice on Thursday night found a
more receptive audience among Demo
crats of the upper house than was
Indicated by the coolness with which
those portions of his addresw which
took direct issue with President Wil
son's views on the treaty question In
dicated. It was learned that such men
as Senators Kin* of Utah. Shields of
Tennessee. Kendrlck of Wyoming, Mc
Kellar of Tennessee. Wnlsh or Mas
sachusetts, Harrison of Mississippi,
and others?all Democrats?were se
cretly pleased and share with the
Nebraskan the view that it will be
unwise to make a campaign issue of
the treaty.
The reservations on which the
Democrats cast 41 votes and to which
they had committed themselves at
the last party caucus, it was stated
yesterday, will lose the support of
a number of the Senators who com
mitted themselves In the caucus.
Interest was manifested in Mr.
Bryan's statement that he would re
turn to Washington on January 16,
Just two days after the caucus
which will determine in whose hands
will be Intrusted the Democratic
leadership during the balance of th*?
long session. It was rumored that
an effort would be made to "have a
second caucus called at that time.
If possible. In the belief that his
presence would be hflpful in influ
encing commitment to a more com
promising policy on the part of Dem
ocratic Senators.
The man next door came over.
"Say," he began, "your dog has come
over and tracked up our porch."
"Is that so?" smiled the neighbor.
"But It Isn't uncommon Now if your
porch had come over and tracked up
our dog It would be worth talking
about" ^ .

of the two-thirds rule. It Is violat

^No man in the Senate or the House

The only reference made by Bryan
to a potential presidential candidate
was his citation of William ff. Mc
Ado? in connection with the latter b
exposure of coal profiteering.
"Mr McAdoo showed us that coal
operatqrs were making as high as

Bryan said * It 1* the business of

to provide machinery whereby we can
call these men and any other business

they arc robbing us or not.
