COAL COMMISSI
DIVISION DROPPED
Duties of Publicity Men
Taken Away, but They
Are Retained.
Disregarding its function of bring
ing stabilization to the bituminous
coal Industry, the Bituminous Coal
Commission today appeared more than
ever in need of some stabilization it
self.
With its chairman merely serving
out his resignation notice, the rest of
the commission yesterday continued
its destabilizing procedure by abolish
ing the duties of the five-man publicity
division, although not terminating the
aervice of those operating the division.
The action was taken suddenly at
a meeting called about noon yesterday
in the absence of the retiring chair
man, Charles F. Hosford, jr. The ac
tion was effective immediately.
Not First Shake-up.
In recent weeks, the commission has
initiated drastic shake-ups in the per
sonnel of all other divisions, with the
legal section the only one not yet af*
fected.
Head of the discontinued press sec
tion was Harold K. Philips, former
newspaper man and national press re
lations officer for the American Legion.
Mr. Philips said the action was en
tirely unexpected, but that he had de
cided to submit his resignation a few
days ago. Still in the employ of the
commission despite abolition of his
post, Mr. Philips said he expected to
resign soon.
Two of the five men in the discon
tinued section are to be retained as
special assistants to the secretary,
through whose office further public in
formation will be issued. The revised
set-up was estimated to be worth $25,
000 yearly in savings to the agency.
A record of Trouble.
The commission has been a center
of controversy and personnel troubles
since its establishment. A few weeks
ago, after a complete schedule of soft
coal prices had been issued, the com
mission ran into more serious trouble
when the courts upheld the contention
of several complainants that the prices
had been set without regard for proper
procedure. The entire schedule then
was suspended and little progress in
reviewing it or preparing a new one
has been made since that time.

trolled marketing this year. Farmers
from the early-producing States who
had no agreement last year favored
starting the system.
Early-producing States represented
Included California, Kansas. Kentucky.
Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, Okla
homa and Texas.
Late-producing State representatives
were present from Maine, New York,

N. L. R. B. ORDERS FIRM
TO PAY EJECTED MEN
Br the Associated Press.
The Labor Relations Board yester
day ordered the General Shoe Corp.
of Nashville, Tenn., to pay 15 em
ployes for the time they lost after the
board said they were put out of the
plant by "strong-arm squads” last
June. •
The board also ordered the com
pany to re-employ 7 of the 15. The
other 8 already have been taken back
without pay for the time they lost.
The board directed the company to
disestablish the Shoe Makers’ Asso
ciation as a collective bargaining
agency, deciding that the association
was “company dominated.”
The company, the board said, per
mitted the association last June to
conduct a "purge” of members who
also belonged to the United Shoe
Workers of America <C. I. O.).
The association’s “goon squad,” the
board said, physically assaulted the
union men inside the plant, then
escorted them out of the building.

Mme. Prochnik Experiences
Second International Crisis
_ I
Chatelaine Duties Ending
as They Began in 1917
—in Tragedy.
By PAULINE FREDERICK.
For the second time In her career
as a diplomatic hostess youthful and
attractive Mme. Edgar L. G. Prochnlk,
American-born wife of Austria's Min
ister to the United States, is witness
ing an international crisis which is
her own as well.
Since Saturday the swastika has
flown above the: hospitable doorway
of the Legation of a nation which by
Monday had ceased to exist. And
the duties of its chatelaine are end
ing much as her first experience
as a diplomat’s wife began—in the
shadow of a historic tragedy.
When cable wires were fairly trem
bling with dispatches in 1917 about
the probable break in diplomatic re
lations between the United States and
Austria the young wife of the then
Austrian Consul in St. Paul, Edgar
L. G. Prochnlk, was facing a mo
mentous decision.
MME. PROCHNIK.
When the final break came she
knew that there would be only one
of two courses open for her. She and
her 9-month-old child could remain
with her American parents in the
United States while her husband re
turned to his native land, or she
could go to Austria with him.
Remains With Husband.
When the time came to decide
Gretchen James Prochnlk of Boston
chose to stay by her husband’s side.
For three years the Prochnlks lived
in the anxiety of a Vienna over which
hung the cloud of war and its after
math. When the peace of St. Ger
maine was signed Herr Prochnlk was
the secretary of the Austrian delega
tion. On May 7, 1925, he presented
his credentials to the State Depart
ment in Washington as the accredited
Austrian Minister to the United States.
Today, while the mother again is
facing an uncertain future, another
woman of her family may likewise
be learning some painful lessons of
diplomacy at first hand. Her step
daughter, Loranda, is the wife of
Francis Spalding, American Vice Con
sul at Stuttgart, Germany.
The three other children of Minis
ter and Mme. Prochnlk are located in
Washington—Valerie, the wife of a
business man; Edgar, jr., in his last
year at St. Alban’s School, and Pa
tricia, at Holton Arms.
Avoids Political Discussions.
Mme. Prochnik, whose handling of
social affairs at the legation has made
it one of the centers of Washington
hospitality, has always carried out
one of the first tenets of a diplomat’s
wife. She smilingly refers all ques
tions on politics to her husband. In
a kindly way she reminds you: “You
see, diplomatic husbands prefer not
to have their wives discuss political
questions without their knowledge."
However, there is one subject on
which you can gain Mme. Prochnlk’s
views—designing. More often than
not the very smart costume you saw
her wearing at one of her delightful
“at homes” or to the diplomatic re
ception at the White House was of
her own creation. Bo fascinating has
she found this hobby since the days
before her marriage, when she studied
designing In Boston, that she has
found opportunity In her crowded
hours as t diplomatic hostess to de
sign costumes for her daughters. And
she has Indicated to her friends that,
should the day arrive when time hangs
heavily on her hands, she will resort
more extensively to this old hobby.
