' American public of the peace conference
from the American point of
view, told by the leading men who
' were there and took part in it.
1 The talks will be given under the
[ supervision of Coloael Edward M.
1 House, who was representative of
the United States on the armistice
commission and commissioner plenipotentiary
at the Paris peace conrerence.
Such men as Herbert Hoover;
General Tasker H. Bliss, who was
, military representative of the
United States on the Supreme War
Council at Versailles and commissioner
plenipotentiary on the American
peace commission. Samuel
Gompers, who was president of the
commission on international labor
legislation of the American peace
commission, and others of equal
prominence will be among the
The gatherings there will assume
the character of a public forum.
The talks will be absolutely nonpartisan;
explanatory rather than
opinionated. But at the close of the
addresses, which will be brief, members
of the audience will be privileged
to ask the speakers any questions.
Those questions, so far as
possible, will be answered by the
lecturers. The series will be opened
ton Friday night. December 10.

will recommend Increased surtaxes

to repeal. It was Warned yesterday.
Financial experts have advised the
Secretary that the "consumption
tax" which they recommend will
strike a real blow at the high cost
of living. By compelling the manufacturer.
wholesaler and retailer to
tag their commodities with costs and
the amount of the tax, the government,
they state, will enable the
consumer to avoid being gouged.
I Although Secretary Houston will
not discuss his report prior to submitting
it to Congress, It is certain
that he will make urgent representations
for a repeal of the excess
profits tax. '
I It will be pointed out that the
manufacturer not only adds the
I amount of the tax to the price of his
commodities, but something In addition
which the consumer ultimately

What Reformers Wast.
A most extensive pcograru Is
( planned. Among the measures t ax
t will be urged are the following:
1 Federal censorship of moving pM.
1 Total prohibition of race track
p and other gambling carried on
p through use of telegraph wires or
, hy machines that are shipped from
. one State to another.
1 Uniform national laws governing
marriage and divorce.
Extension of the Iowa Injunction
" law for regulating "red light" districts
In every Stale of the Union
! Extension of alcoholic prohibition
to American embassies and lega'
Far School MM* Reading.
In addition, the program includes
legislation to compel the restoration
' of Bible reading In scfcools. posting
f of the Ten Commandments in
schools, churches, and other public
buildings, establishment of training
' schools for moral reformers, and
1 preparation of standardised lltera>
tare In many laaguages.
The reformers want Congress to
' control the motion pictures lndes
try In accordance with principles
underlying its control of baaks and
1 railroads This was attempted Just
before the outbreak of the war. hat
' was abandoned when war legislation
' absorbed all attention.
1 Gambling would be attack*#
> under the Interstate CommerQg
r clause of the Constitution. The reformers
wish to prevent Interstate
transmission of gambling message*
' and Interstate transportation of
1 gambling machines and devices, for
r instance, the hill would prevent
r publication af the results of raonf
' In one State In another State.
I Shipment of drugs, especially mor.
phla. from the United State* Into
1 China, would be prohibited through
' amendments to the Harrison 4mg
act. Senator Jonoa of Washington
will probably Introduce this bill
and expects to have the backing of
Dr. Howard A. Kelly, of Baltimore,
r and former Minister to China Paul
