SILZER URGES COAL
REGULATION PLAN
Jersey Governor for Pennsyl
vania-Anthracite-U. S.
' Co-operation.
By the Associated Press.
BOSTON,' December 26.—C0-oper
ation between the federal govern
ment, the state of .Pennsylvania and
the various anthracite consuming
states to regulate the anthracite in
dustry, was urged by Gov. George S.
Silaer of New Jersey, In an address
before the Boatary Club today.
‘•The President,” he said, ‘‘ln deal
ing with the question of coal * * *
asked for the power to act in an
emergency. Wo seem to be in the
midst of an emergency all the time.”
“Whether the federal government
can exercise to the fullest degree
the power of price fixing and regula
tion or whether it_ cannot, there is
no doubt at all that through the
powers which the interstate com
merce commission now has and those
which could be given to it, or a
similar commission, it would have
undoubted authority and power to
eliminate the fraudulent and extor
tionate practice and the unfair com
petition and control, which are the
largest factors in the curtailment
of production the creation of short
ages and . the raising of the
price. • •
Petition Suggested.
"The people of the thirty anthracite
consuming states should petition
Pennsylvania to take some action.
• • Pennsylvania in all fairness is
charged with the duty of seeing that
coal and not slate Is sent to us for
consumption. This It can easily ac
cumplish. We should ask the state
of Pennsylvania to repeal the coal
tax.* • *. It is unfair, unjust and
Immoral, ;
“Pennsylvania should regulate and
prevent the payment of extortionate
royalties. This it can also do.
“Within our respective states we
should be willing to co-operate. Our
dllficulty, of course, is, first, to get a
sufficient quantity of coal into the
state, and, second, to see that it ar
rives here at fair prices. This being
accomplished, we can prevent extor
tion and unfair practices within the
state. If the industry and govern
crnmenlal agencies who should con
trol it fail in their duty to the public
then they have only themselves to
blame if the public in self-protection
forces upon them some radical ac
tion.”
D. C. RESIDENT AND WIFE
ASK COURT FOR NEW NAME
Francis Mateika, manager of a
catering establishment, today asked
the District Supreme Court to change
his name to Francis May. His wife,
Christine Cowan Mateika, joins in the
petition, requesting that she be known
as Christine Cowan May. and that
their adopted daughter. Saida, also be
permitted to change her name.
Mr. Mateika explains to the court
that the difficulty with which
name is pronounced and the inability
of customers to remember the name
interferes with his position, as the
patrons of the establishment have
difficulty in calling orders to him
over the telephone. The petitioners
are represented by Attorneys Deckle,
Cox and Sherier.

THE EVENING STAR, WASHINGTON, D. 0., WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1923.
was held only once by President
Harding.
Although the details have not been
completed, it is understood that the
reception will start at 10 o’clock in
the morning and will be continued
on through until 4 o'clock in the
afternoon, with a recess of an hour
for the President and Mrs. Coolidge
and those assisting them, to luncheon
and rest. Lieut. Col. C. O. Sherrill,
chief military aide to the President,
was in conference with the Executive
today regarding the arrangements
for this event and it is expected they
will be completed within the next day
or so.
It was thought at first that the
President might vary the usual New
Year day program by an innovation.
There was some talk of him making
an address by radio or amplifiers
from the portico or some ‘interior
part of the house when the receiving
line was shut down at 4 o’clock. This
idea was suggested because of the
fact that the reception held by Pres
ident and Mrs. Harding two years agd
attracted so many people that when
the hour came for ending the recep
tion there were still several thousand
in line awaiting their opportunity.
President Harding, upon learning
of this, did not have the heart to
order the doors closed and he and his
wife were forced to remain stand
ing for more than another hour in
order not to disappoint that large crowd
that had been waiting so long in the
cold.
A true friend is a man who knows
you thoroughly, but likes you . Just
the same.
D. A; R. MEMBERSHIP
IS EAGERLY SOUGHT
Special Facilities Are Necessary to
Pass on Many Ap

So many women are applying for

1,600, were granted charters. It is
estimated that a total of about 1,000,-
000 women are eligible to be mem
bers, and officials of the D. A. R. pre
dict that if the present rate is main
tained most of the eligible* will be
brought within the organisation with
in the next few years. The total en-
13
rollment now is approaching the 200.
000 mark.
"With all the culta and Itmi ti "

issued from D. A. R. l.eadqvan* ■
here, "It la very gratifying to ih«
board to aee women flocking to t'.H
