L Head Will Force Managers to Capitulate. o v creen tars May Quit. NEW YORK. Aus- 22. With the re turn to New York today of Samuel Gompers. head of the American Fed eiation of Labor, the real crisis is ex poctcd in the actors' strike, which has spread to the musicians and stage hands and threatens to result in the formation of a playwrights' union. With approximately 12.0CO Kquity artors on str'kc, nineteen theaters and thror roof gardens closed here, and Hght theaters "dark" in Chicago, the prospppt of an early settlement of tlio controversy is remote. A complete deadlock between ac tors and managers was maintained throughout yesterday. At strike head quarters the demand of Daniel Froh man for mediation was scoffed at, and it was said that with the return to day of fJompcrs, the managers would be forced to capitulate. To Confer Tonlsht. A conference between Equity heads and the labor leader will be held this evering and arrangements will be completed to call out every scenic artist in the State. Jiibt as jubilant were the managers ver the prospect o" Louis Mann hav 'Dg assumed the role of E. H. Sothern in his efforts to settle the strike by ? the formation of another actors' as- ( soclation in opposition to the Equity.1 Mr. Mann, who is confessedly with the managers, announced yesterday that George M. Coha-i nad handed him a certified check for 5100,000 and h ould hack the new organization to I the limit.

Joseph Weber, Charles G. Shay, DeWolf Hop per and James Baranciees. Much interest was centered yester day in the attempted formation of a playwrights' union, it was handled as the latest idea to germinate from the actors' strike. To Open With Movies. While this conference was in prog ress several managers announced they would stand pat and that the enormous losses they were sustaining would be curbed next week when four more Broadway playhouses would re open their doors with moving picture attractions. "The Better "Ole" at the Booth The ater closed last night, and the entire cast joined the strikers. This made the nineteenth theater to date. A second playwrights' association is in progress of formation. Channing Pollock has been chosen chairman. Eugene Walter said the only object of this association will be to protect its members In the conduct of their business.

BEFORE embarking on what seems to be an orgy of "storage food seizure," it is proper that the public and officials look beyond the immediate present! Agents of the Government, attempting to quickly reduce living costs, are seizing stored food stuffs in various sections of the country, and announcing their intention to force immediate marketing of the food, some of which is in process of cure, the balance for use in winter or the season of short production. Foods That Are Stored The Surplus Egg Production of March, April, May and June. The Surplus Butter Product1" ' May, June and July. The Surplus Beef from Rani, .tie as Marketed in the Fall. The Surplus Pork Production .(Most of It To Be Cured.) Unless the surplus of the season's production is available for gradual dis tribution there is bound to be a scarcity. The present movement may be likened to the cutting down of a tree in order to obtain its fruit. That is one way to get the fruit in a hurry, but it has a disastrous effect upon next year's crop. There can be no defense for the withholding of food in order to increase the price. We do not do this. The use of cold storage for speculation deserves the severest condemnation, and every good citizen will endorse common sense inspec tion of food reserves. A line must be drawn, however, between specu lation and prudent laying away of food for the season of non-productivity. If the course of un checked seizure is pursued, it will mean shortage next winter. Most of the meat in storage is owned by firms which perform a real function in the process of distribution, and which have regular customers, whose needs they supply. The success of these firms depends largely on the ability of their man agers to estimate market demands and to buy, store and sell accordingly. The fact that there is more food of various kinds in storage at this time than was the case a year ago is really beneficial when consideration is given to the fact that 1 00,000,000 people in the U. S. A. are to be supplied and foreign countries as well. Our business experience for a period of years has had to do with problems incident to the storage of food and we believe that if food supplies now in storage be prematurely forced on the market HUNGER may join our ranks this winter.
