Seek Furniture For
By Its Wage-Earner
That in the midst of prosperity its
antithesis, poverty, may rise like a
wraith to spread its gaunt arms men
acingly over the few, came prominent
ly to light today when George h. War
ren issued an appeal through the
Charities Organization society, of
which he is general secretary, f. the
reconstruction of a shattered fam
. When- the great munition boom
sent the wheels of industry spinning
night and day and the glow of thous
ands of electric lights glimmered
from the factory windows during the
midnight hours, the home of Sarah
Wilder in North avenue was snatched
from her by. a grasping landlord.
In the street with her five children,
husband and furniture, she watched
the husband's affection fade and like
wise her furniture go stick by stick
to follow the errant man.
In drc calamity she placed two
young children in the county home
whence they were sent into familiea
Two older children were compelled to
seek their own support in the cold
wcrld and she with one child got a
room and by her hands kept the wolf
of hunger from .the door. '
Last week it was learned by Mr
Warren that, without the aid of a
husband, she had been able to, provide
well for herself and child, and the
older boys had also- become wage
earners. In an effort to re-establish
the home an appeal ' was made to the
C. O. S. for a rent and for the return
of her two little children. It is esti
mated that the three wage earners
may now maintain a home if furniture
In found for them. The county offl:
clals, it'is also believed, will return the
two1' children, under tjiev i circum
. In the effort to reconstruct thin
family a " general request is made foi
any articles of furniture that may aid
this family. Replies should be sent
to George L. Warren, Room 401; Con
necticut National .Bank building.
Diplomats Take Up
Armed Ships' Rights r
. v " At Foreign Ports
Copenhagen, March 15 The right
of American armed merchantmen to
enter neutral ports of Europe is the
subject of . negotiations now carried
on by diplomatic representatives of
the United States. vDr. Maurice Egan,
American minister to penmark, like
his colleagues at other , courts, took
u pthe subject a number of ays ago
but as yet has received no reply from
the Danish government ; It is under
stood that among the European neu
trals, Sweden and Norway have no
objection to , use of their ports by
armed American merchantmen.
Holland, -which has barred bellig
erent armed merchantmen from its
harbors, " is expected to extend the
same rule to armed American vessels.

of Gov. Holcomb In
Taking State Census
Irving Shapiro of 844 Halleti
street, believes that Governor Hol
comb should take some steps to re
duce the high cost of living instead
of having a military census of the
state taken. Shapiro says he is a drill
press hand, 27 years of age, five feet, ,
five inches in height, and weighs 135
pounds. . He has four dependent on
him for support. These are th only
questions lie answered when he filled
out a blanfe for the military census
on Feb. 26. He refused tn answer the
other questions because he is opposed
to warfare. . . i
On the back of the blank he wrote
this message to Governor Holcomb
protesting against the taking of the
census and setting forth his views on ,
the matter: . j
: "As this points directly to war n- . j
couragement, I therefore refuse ary ;
further information in regard to my
military ability. Shall . his excellency,
the governor of this state, try instead
to do something for the famine and
high cost of living on which account
the working .class is suffering,- and 1
therefore voice , my protect against
war, although I am as good a citizen
and the United States of America is
just as dear to me as to any good and
true citizen' f
His message will be forwarded to.
the governor without comment. Only
41 persons in Bridgeport refused to
give information to the military cen
sus takers. ; t
I Assistant Superintendent of Police
Charles H. Suckley who. is, in charge
of the 'work here, said today that
nearly 60000 names have already
been forwarded to Hartford. He ex
pects that the total registration here
will be between' 75,000 and 80,000.
It is expected that the census will
be completed by ' next week. Any
male resident of Bridgeport who has
been overlooked by the census takers
may give information concerning
himself to Supt. Suckley and his
name will be added -to the enrollment
Policemen and stenographers are
