For this rea son, if not for nothing i-Ue. probably when Christmas comes around the actor people look forward to a good crowd in attendance at the theaters. They like to amuse th happy Christ mas people, and above all do thoy likt to play to young tilks. There is now more interested and at the same time critical spectator of a good play than the average news boy. Why this cannot lr, told, but it is a fact. It is also a fact that there are no clafs of liule folks the actor people would rather play to than the newsboys. Actor folks appreciate a lug audience of newsboys. They y i love to act to them, and most boys love to see them act.

Tariff Revision to De Par ticular Legislation. Ac tion Decided Upon After Two Hour Conference With Speaker Clark. associated press dispatch TRENTON, Dec. 24. Congress will probably be called into extraordinary session by President Woodrow Wilson shortly after the inauguration perhaps on March 13 and the particular legis lation to coiiTe before it wiil be tariff revision. After a two hours conference with Speaker Champ Clark, the president elect said today he would endeavor to meet the wishes of the democratic leaders in congress, who, he was in formed were anxious that the interval between the two sessions be as brief as possible. While the speaker said the time of the present legislature will be consumed with appropriation bills leaving the democratic pledges to the new congress, he concurred with Wil son that tariff should be the foremost subject for the special session. The plans for the extra session of congress to be called some time be tween March 4 and April 13 will be discussed in a conference probably this week between Presidentelect Wilson and Representative . Underwood of Alabama the democratic leader in the hou.se. Mr. Underwood is gradually recover ing from La grippe, and has advised Mr. Wilson that this prevented his ac ceptance of the invitation to confer with him at a definite date. All the democratic leaders agreed upon calling the extra session, the only uncertainty being the date. The position that a range of subjects "be taken up at the extra session will be determined large ly upon the basis of the incoming pres ident's suggestion in hi call for the session. As voiced by one of the lead ers, if President-elect Wilson should call an exlra session to consider the tariff and the trusts, the house would probably be fairly governed by that recommendation. o BENJAMIN WAS LUCKY ASSOCIATED PRESS DTSPATCH .

(HtEECE TO GET , AEGEAN ISLANDS These and Other Changes "Would Mean Practical Revision of Map and Re moval of Adrianople As A Menace to Bulgaria. ASSOCIATED PP.ESS DI3PATC LONDON, Dec. 24. The Turkish delegate to the peace conferences, al though they realize they eventually must accept the conditions laid down by the albes to bring about peace in south eastern Europe, are following the usual course of procrastination and will take advantage of every diploma tic device to postpone the inevitable dismemberment of the territory which has been their armed camp for 500 years. In the meanwhite the allies are so confident that the outcome of the peace negotiations will be In line with their demands that they have agreed on th boundaries for an autonomous Albania. The boundaries will be submitted to the late ambassadorial conference which adjourned to meet early In the new year. The question looming sin ister before Europe is not when peace will be signed by the belligerents, but which in view of the settlement of the quarrel between Austria and Servia, Is why Austria does not demobilize. The allies agreed to propose to the ambassadorial conference the following frontier for autonomous Albania. North along the River Drin. leaving a few miles of the left bank of that river to Montenegro, as it represents the only passage possible from the interior to the sea. The frontier as proposed will follow the Drin until the White Drin joins the Black Drin. The east ern frontier is marked by a watershed between Albania and Servia, leaving ta Servia both Prisrend and Monastic The southern frontier consists of a line virtually straight from southern Italona to the watershed, leaving the town of Ergherkistro to Greece. The proposed frontier between Mon tenegro and Servia will be along the White Drin, leaving Djacova to Monte negro and passing through the River Ibar at a spot called Rojas from where it reaches in a straight line to the River Lim, which constitutes the last of the frontier leaving the town of Plevlie to Montenegro. The Aegean islands will go to Greece, they having a population made up al most entirely of Greeks but the Athens government pledges neutralization in these islands, desiring to guarantee to all powers free passage and liberty and commerce throughout the Archi pelago. Although the Bulgarians asked yes terday to be permitted to occupy terri tory on line from Rodesto on the Sea o Marmora, to Midia, on the Black Sea, it is believed they will be satisfied to have the frontier start from Enos, a port on the Aegean sea and follow the Maritza river until it reaches a point south of Lute Burgas and then out across eastward to Midia. This line, while it would not give Adrianople to the Bulgarians, would prevent it from being a menace in the future.. It is purposed to make Salo niki and the surrounding territory within a hundred miles neutral under the protection of the allies. o BIG TIME AT FOLSOM.
