that should the equal rights bill, a

the federal amendment, which the
National Woman's Party intends .o
put through Congress, be passed
laws proteoting women in industry
would be automatically repealed.
Vwins to Ran Risk'
That It Is useless to run the risk
of tampering protective meas
ures already in existence when the
equality of women could be secured
in other ways Is the argument of the
National Woman's Trade Union
League, the Consumers League. Bus
iness Woman's Club of the \oung
Women's Christian Association. Na
tional League of Woman Voters ann
other organisations.
If the blanket measure is passed In
the state the decision as to the In
tel pretation of its terms would in
evitably have to pass to the United
States Supreme Court, according to
opinions of many lawyers.
I The bill asks that "women shall
have the same rights, privileges and
immunities under.the laws as man.
specifically with respect to "freedom
of contract." because of their disa
bility on account of sex, which makes
protection necessary for the good of
the state and nation It Is pointed out.
Danger Pointed Ont.
Further, according to J. H. Rals
ton of Washington, "the law which
now prevents a woman from guaran
teeing her huRband's debt on any note
would go by board, because you pro
pose to give them freedom of con
tr "This bill probably would destroy
all such laws as limitation of hours
I of labor for women, restricting night
work laws for women and providing
'seats In stores for women." Mr. Rals
ton continues In a letter concerning
I the Maryland bill.
Greatest possible care in drafting
1 the bill should be taken, for passage
of the law might mean that a wife
would be held liable civily or crimi
nally for non-support of her hus
band. in the opinion of Mr. Ralston
Even with the restrictive clause
stating that the bill shall not apply
to women in Industry (Section 4).
lawyers are in doubt as to the opin
ion of the courts in the matter. A
difference of opinion among lawyers
on the subject Indicates that there
is grave risk. It is felt, in having
such a bill become a law.
Cannot Jeopardise Standards.
Miss Agnes Nestor, legislative
chairman of the National Romans
Trade Union League, in a public
statement said:
'Working women will go as far
as any women In working for actual
citizenship and equal economic rights
with men We do not propose to
surrender /or Jeopardise industrial
standards already won and exchange
thirty yeara progress for a possible
gain In some other direction which
can be obtakied in some other way.
Everything In the blanket bill can
be obtained In some other way with
out sacrificing the interest of work
ing women."
Mrs. Charles J. Ogle of the Just
Government League, defends the bill
and declares that the proviso that
the bill sht/jld not apply to Indus
trial legislation protecting women is
sufficient tq protect the women in in
dustry. f
Bequest Made for Permission to
Doff Uniforms Except When
on Duty With Troops.
Provided Gen. Pershing, chief of
staff, gives his approval, officers of
the Army on duty at the War De
partment and Its branches in this
city will doff their uniforms and wear
civilian dress at all times when not
on tluty with troops or in attendance
at official functions at the White House
or elsewhere. Orders to wear uni
forms at all times were first issued
during the Spanish war and were re
newed during the world war but
never before the present time have
beon enforced in timt of peac.
Many officrs on duty at th War D?
T-artment have petitioned the Secre
tary of War to permit the wearing of
civilian dress during office hours as
well as at other times when not em
ployed in strictly military service, and
the question was referred to Gen.
Pershing for report.
Naval officers are permitted to Bo
as they please In the matter. Army
officers make special complaint
against being "trussed up* In a tight
Sam Brown belt when seated In a
chair and bending over a desk all day.
As one officer put It, "The belts may
be all right for dress parade or when
the uniform should be worn on offi
cial occasion* but it Is deuoedly un
comfortable and lnoonvenlent for
desk work."

luncheon at the Lafayette Hotel, the
entire diplomatic force of the Greek
legation hero and many members of
the Senate. Mr. PapatranKO. for a
quarter of a century, was adviser to
the American legation in Athens. He
felt sure, he said, of the sympathy of
Americans in the Greek cause and
arlded that the warfare being- con

was termed "barbarism" would even
tually be terminated successfully.
J. Gennadiun. Senators King and I

Approves Move to Give Sea
Training to Veterans Hav
ing Vocational Handicap.
| President Harding's approval Friday
| of the transfer to the Veterans' Bureau
I of any surplus Army and Navy equip
I ment suitable for use .has made pr.op
! *rty valued at millions of dollars avafl
| able for use by the bureau, according to
Ian announcement by Col. Charles R.
Forbes. The property includes such
material an machinery, desks, type
writers. appliances' of all kinds, raw
material, books, adding machines and
thousands of other articles which will
be utilized at the various government
vocational schools and at private insti
tutions training disabled veterans.
Col. Forbes also announced that Presi
dent Harding had given his approval to
the establishment of a nautical school
for the training of veterans who have
a vocational handicap. Among the
sites under consideration for this
school, it was said, are Baltimore, Md.;
Salem and other points in South Caro-,
lina, Florida. T'-xas. Newport, R. I.,
and other Ne.w England ports. Vessels
of the Shipping Board will be used in
training, the announcement said, and a
shinping expert will probably be de
tailed from the Navy Department who
will assist Col. Forbes in selecting the
type of vessels best fit tod for the pur
pose of training. Chairman .J-ask^r of
the Shipping- Board has given his in
dorsement of the nautical school.
Training Facilities Inadequate.
Referring to "an erroneous idea of
the government vocational schools"
which Col. Forbes said many people
have, the bureau director issued the
following statement:
"It has never been and never will
be the intention of this bureau as
long as T am director to take men
out of established or accredited uni
versities ? and institutions where the
veteran has been making satisfactory
progress; but when it is taken into
consideration that the expected peak
of our rehabilitation population will
be between 200.000 and 2.r>0,000, It is
very evident that there are not many
educational institutions in the United
States to take care of disabled vet
erans who pre or will be eligible for
training under the law. At ti e pres
ent time there are approximately
30.000 men who are waiting to bo as
signed to educational institutions
for training purposes. Today we have
ri few more than 1^4.000 veterans un
dergoing vocational tiainintr and the
established educational institutions
are crowded. What would Be the
condition when we reach the peak of
250.000 veterans eligible for training?
There is only one answer: The gov
ernment must establish institutions
for their training or the veterans will
be neglected."

A flve-mile procession weaving
its colorful way through palm
fringed roads today concluded the
last rites In the funeral for Jonah

uary 7 ended the old Hawaiian line
of monarchs. Of these, Kalaniana
ole, known to the natives as Prince
Kuhio, was the last descendant.

The procession was led by a
marcher carrying a Christian cross,
while by his side marched one who
carried a tabu stick, an emblem
of the ancient regime. Behind
these were grouped all official
Hawaii, with representatives of
churches in their solemn clerical
garb against Hawaiian warriors
clad in bright yellow and black
cloaks and feathers.
As the body was taken from the
palace, armed batteries in the hills
began the firing of minute Runs,
maintaining the naluting until the
body had been borne to the royal
mausoleum, where It was placed
beside the older kings of Hawaii
in a crypt hidden beneath a mound
of floral offerings.
Silence lay. over the tomb to
night, which la half concealed In a
circle of towering palms. Last
nfght the body lay In the throne
room of the palace, resting there
until 11 o'clock this morning, when
6imple Episcopalian ceremonies
mingled with the wailing and
chanting of old Hawaiian mourn
At the grave, while the crowds
formed deep around the crypt, sub
dued singing of hymns was begun
?"Lead. Kindly Light," "Safe in
the Arms of Jksus," a. short pray
er, and. in closing, the farewell
song written by the late Queen
Liliuokalani, cousin of the prin?-e
?"Alohaos." Then slowly, with
the sound of the la?t gun dying,
the prince's body was placed in
the crypt.
