ing the league plank incorporated in
the Virginia platform, which the
President already has approved.
This' plank was drawn by Senator
Carter Glass, who Is being named in
some quarters as the convention's prob
able nominee.
The President. Mr. Cummings said, I
at all times had agreed to any sug
gestions that would expand or de
velop the league provisions, and his
reason for opposition to some pro
posed reservations was that they v:t
iated the document.
"The stand of the Republican party
on the league was a dishonest state
ment." Mr. Cummings said, "a pre
meditated and calculated attempt to
satisfy irreconcilables. At no point did
it suggest ratification of the league
treaty. It was made up of vague prom
ises of some other kind of league.' 1
feel that the Republican position will
not deceive anyone."
Cummings also declared that while
the Republican convention had not
disposed of the issue,, the party can
didate himself already had voted for
a league with reservations.
Concerning Herbert Hoover's state
ment that he was in accord with Sen
ator Harding's candidacy, Mr. Cum
mings said that was a matter Air.

WASHINGTON, June 19. Drastic
action for the relief of tfie fuel short
age in New England and other sec
tions of the country was taken by the
interstate commerce commission to
night in the issuance of preference and
priority orders to the railroads for the
transportation of bituminous coal to
tidewater for trans-shipment by water
to destinations within the United
Stating that an "emergency exists
which requires immediate action." the
commission ordered all railroads in the
eastern and southern territories to give
preference and priority to carloads of
coal consigned for shipment by water
to New England or any other domestic
destination "until the further order of
the commission." The order is effec
tive next Thursday.
The commission simultaneously or
dered all roads east of the Mississippi
river serving coal mines to furnish the
mines with coal cars in preference to
any other use for a period of 30 days,
beginning Monday.
A virtual embargo on the export of
coal is expected to result from the
commission's orders because railroad
men assert the agents appointed for
the direction of coal shipments cannot
issue permits for the movement of coal
for foreign destination unless it can
be shown that the preferences and
priorities directed will not be im
peded. At least 30 days will be neces
sary to care for domestic wants, it is
said, provided congestion is overcome

Although as a rule traders looked for
liberal fresh arrivals of corn Monday,

this opinion as a basis, bull leaders
made much of the fact that during the

Sentiment in favor of an upturn in

size of country elevator stocks had
been exaggerated and that no corn was

My Neighbor
My neighbor lets weeds grow in his garden,
he lets his house run down, and all his
family looked patched.
My neighbor decides many important things;
and he is sure all things would be all light
if they were done his way.
My neighbor decided long ago that advertis
, " ing was waste; that he would never read
it because he did not want any one to tell
him what to buy.
My neighbor may be right. The moon may be
made of green cheese. But, as I see it.
My neighbor is no neighbor of mine; he just
lives next door because he was born fifty
years too late.
My neighbor spends as much money to live
poorly as I do to live well. As most of my
money goes to meet living expenses, I
want all the good things it will bring me.
Advertisements tell me all
about these good things. ,d
vr rt isements give me the op
portunity to compare all
varieties of the things I
w ould 1 li v . Advertisements
help me pick the best for my
purpose and my purse.
