sert. A big department store lias an
other $100-a-week woman to demon
strate aluminum pans and other
kitchen appliancesi She can tell
housewives anything they want to
know about kitchen equipment. v
One exhibitor pays a pretty young
girl $60 a week to cook doughnuts
and corn fritters that he gives away J
to patrons. Another exhibitor pays a j
good-looking young woman $75 a
week to make biscuits for free dis
tribution.
t Porrv P. Patrick, secretary of the
j Retail Grocers' Protective Association,
I predicts that the second week of the
| show will be even better attended

PRESIDENT SCORED
FOR APPOINTMENT
Senator Harrison Declares
Mr. Harding Violated
Civil Service Law.
Charges of violating1 the civil serv
ice law were made against President
Harding yesterday in the Senate by
Senator Harrison, democrat, Missis
sippi, in an attack upon republican
management of government affairs.
In appointing French Crow as post
master of Marion, Ohio, his home city,
j by executive order. Senator Harrison
j said Mr. Harding had "stamped" the
I law under foot. The appointment,
which Senator Harrison announced he
would oppose and urge be dismissed
on the floor of the Senate, was, he de
clared, "the most glaring Incident in
the history of civil service in the
United States."
"How can followers of civil serv
ice have any faith or confidence?" he
asked. "This is the beginning of de
struction of the civil service system."
J-aakrr Alno Attacked.
Senator Harrison also attacked
Chairman Lasker of the Shipping
Board, declaring he had made state
ments regarding its alleged economy
of administration which had not "been
borne out, and also criticized an ap
propriation bill provision extending
the annual $25,000 traveling allowance
fund of the President for use for offi
cial entertainment purposes.
Chairman Warren of the appropria
tions committee defended the travel
entertainment fund and called atten
tion to the expenditures abroad of
former President Wilson. Senator
Warren sttid that "some millions of
dollars" had been spent by Mr. Wilson
"and no accounting made for it yet."
That Senator Harrison was seeking
to inject partisan politics into the dis
cussion was charged by Senator War
ren, while Mr. Harrison countered
with the statement that Senator War
ren had raised the question of parti
sanship.
Appointments Declared Farce.
Civil service administration also
was attacked again by Senator Cara
way, democrat, Arkansas, and others.
.Senator Caraway read a letter from
the commission denying- his recent
charges that examination marks had
been raised arbitrarily, and then re
iterated the charges, citing alleged in
stances in Arkansas postmaster
cases. Senator Caraway also charged
that former service men had been
"turned down" in seeking positions as
postmasters.
Senator Harrison said that it was
"a farce the way postmasters are ap
pointed." Other appointments, h?t
added, were subject to the same in
dictment. Without republican politi
cal influence, he declared, there was
"no chance to get a job under this ad
ministration." This condition, he said,
in his opinion, resulted from orders
"from above."
