All High School Girls Clad In Blue and White, Proposed By Mothers to School Board Hundreds of high school girls marching to and from school daily in a uniform of middy blouses and blue skirts was the vision held up to the Board of Education yesterday for ap proval by Mrs. Z. Lewis Dalby. repre senting t K e District Congress of Mothers and Parent-Teachers Associ ations. when she formally asked the board to adopt a regulation to'gov ern and simplify the dress of the girls attending the high schools. The board took the matter unt^r advise ment. Mrs. Dalby said that the soldiers were uniformed, as were Boy Scout* and other similar organisations, and that the girl* of the high schools should be uniformed, and pointed out that Boston has such a requirement for its high school pupils. She said that she had a daughter who used this uniform during an entire four \ ? tmnm fctra, her boy was wearing] the cadet uniform, and that another j child would wear the middy blouse ! and dress when she reached thc? high school. Such a rule of the board, she point- . ed out, would save the mothers of j the city much worry in vying with ' each other In dressing their girls fori school. Requests of the high school teach era for an additional delegate to the teachers' council of the normal school teachers for representation on it. and of the teachers of spe cial studies for a delegate were taken under advisement. A petition for a sixteen-room ad- | dition to the Joseph Rodman West | School, Fourtenth and Farragut streets, was presented by Mrs. George W. Kanodle on behalf of the Parent-Teachers' Association of that school. Mrs. Kanodle outlined the condi- ' tions existing at this school, al- ; ready pointed out by The Herald. Owing to lack of evidence to prove certain charges against : James C. Wright, a teacher at the | Dunbar High School, the board yes terday raised the suspension of that teacher. Request of Mrs. I* Billingsley for the establishment of a community: center at the Deanwood 8chool also was taken under advisement. The following changes in the per sonnel of the District schools were announced: APPOINTMENTS. Mrs. H. G. Torbert, teacher. Amer icanization work; (Miss) II .Z.

The organization voted to oppose I the measure, following addresses by Senator Robert L. Owen and Attor- | ney Jackson H. Ralston. Senator Owen declared: "I am against the bill because it j goes beyond all reasonable inhibi-j tions. violates the spirit of the F**d- j eral Constitution and places in th^ office of the Postmaster General and other Federal officers, powers which ought to be trusted to no department head."

New York. Jan. 21.?News of con cession* made by President Car ranza to American owners of oil lands In Mexico, which will make possible the drilling* of several new wells immediately, reached Wall street today after the close of the stock market. Under the new arrangement licenses are to be issued to the com panies for drilling:, with the express understanding: that in accepting these licenses the companies do not ^forfeit any rights they now possess nor acquire any new rights. The licenses are provisional until such time as the Mexican Congress acts on the oil situation and Interprets article 27 of the new constitution. All points in dispute are to be brought up for adjustment at that time. The forty-six oil companies com posing the association sent a joint telegram to President Carranza sig nifying their acceptance of his prop osition. What effect the compromise may have on the prices of stock* will depend entirely on the technical condition of the specific issues. The matter is more nigniflcant than its probable effect on stocks might Indicate. The oil fields are the real bone of contention between the United States and Mexico, and if peace Is established in oil it will mean peace in all respects with Mcxico. Y. W. C.

Chicago In vestigators say Jonuh didn't and the whale couldn't, while Dr. Moses Has ten. Hebrew student In London, de clares It quite possible that Jonah en tered the whale's system and rode therein with little embarrassment to himself and none to the whale. The whale's throat was too small and Jonah too large and anyway a big fish is a symbol of Hades in He- I brew. Dr. R. O. Moulton. of Chicago: University, recently announced. It wasn't that kind of a whale and Jonah was a small man and the! Biblical story doesn't Indicate that a symbol was intended, Is tha answer of Dr. Gasten. Not all whales have small throats. Dr. Gasten holds, and points In proof to mounted specimens In the British museum. It Is possible that the matter will be referred to some International court of Inquiry and In this event Dr. Gasten offers to present any conclu sive proof short of summoning either Jonah or his little playmate as wit nesses In their own behalf.
