r ROW IN T^E TREA8URY
_^J!?ged Scrap Betwoen David H. Blair
and Elmer S. Dover.
Washington, March 29.?Republican
cpoliticians outside the official fold are
responsible for the latest row that |
threatens to disrupt the treasury and
cause the resignation of high officiuls. J
.Despite administration efforts to hush j
it up, information today indicated that j
either Elmer Dover, Assistant- Secretary
of the treasury, or David H. i
Blair, Commissioner of Internal Revo- j
nue, will go. Mr. Dover, in fact, is
quoted, as saying in private that unless
the commissioner resigns, he will quit.
V The excuse made for the rumpus)
against Mr. Blair is that the big
weanoss of the Harding administration
has been' the failure to oust
Democratic office holders, wnicn, it is
asserted, will react to the disadvantage
of the party during the fall caml>aiffn.
A break between President Harding;
and Secretary Mellon is one of the j
'possibilities that may follow the efforts
of Assistant' Secretary Dover to have!
Commissioner Blair ousted. Some of-1
Qcial's head is sure to drop, accord- j
ing to some who have been aware of |
the difficulty.
Mellon May Get "In Bad."
It Is not believed it will be Mr.
Dover who drops out. The information
Qmong politicians is ihat he was placed
In the treasury by President Harding
himself with a very distinct pur- j
pose?to give Mr. Mellon time to look:
after the financial matters and to get:
rid of the Democrats held over in thej
treasury department.
It is said about 300 names wore sent
from the Whito House to Secretary
Mellon, including some of the active
Democrats and others who took little
part in politics. Only about 300 have
been acted upon. The rest are tied
up tight. Unless Mr. Mellon can find
a way to have them removed lie may
find himself unpopular with the White
House.
As stated in The World of Dec. 26
Republican lawyers began to complain
that they could hot do any good with
income tax cases, their assertion
)teing that they had" to appear before
Democrats. Shortly before Christmas
a drive was started on the president
to force him to rid the treasury of
all Democrats. The Internal Revenue
Bureau was the real target.
Protests Against Blair.
It was stated' today that protests
have been coming in against Mr. Blair
for eight or nine months and that his
attention has been called to the dissatisfaction
without causing him to
riaugurate the spoils system. .
' 'iWlth the forces getting down to
concrete cases for the first time today
it was learned that those opE'ng
Mr. Blair are irritated that a
man has not,been named in the
e of E. H. Batson, ranking Deputy
Commissioner of the bureau and reported
as a Wilson appointee.
^rAs a matter of fact, his friends say,
r,. Batson has beep a- Republican all
ms life. He entered the service of the
Internal Revenue Bureau during the
"war. ?
>gvMr. Blair declined to discuss reports
of friction today. Friends of his,
however, think the attack somewhat
unjustifiable. It was pointed out that
most of those placed in the Revenue
Bureau are under the civil service.
The last Wilson appointee went out a
few weeks ago, and all the general
Prohibition agents have been appointed
Since Mr. Harding came in.
ti Blair and Mellon in Accord.
While Mr. Blair is said to feel entirely
responsible for all appointments
in the bureau, none have been made
without the approval of Secretary
Mellon, who is standing behind Mr.
Blair.

SHORT SKIRT CONTROVERSY
Kansas Case Creates Nation Wide
I nterest.
Lawrence, Kan., April 7.?How
short a, girl's skirt must be to be a
disturber of scholastic peace, and
when, if ever, it becomes the concern
of a school board, are questions expected
to be laid before the supreme
court of Kansas, following the recent
action-?! HiatricL Judgc Hugh gleans
in sustaining a demurrer of the Vinland,
Kansas, rural school board
against his jurisdiction in an adtfoa
brought on behalf of Alice Hansen
and Maude Buchanan, Vinland high
school pupils against the hoard.
Alice and Maude are 15 years old,
and . both are farmers daughters. |
Court action was brought by J. E.
! Hansen, father of Alice, when the Vin|
land achool board, after adopting a
rule requiring pupils to wear skirts
three inches below the knees, decided
that the skirts of Alice and Maude did
not meet specifications, and expelled
them until such time as their skirts
should be lowered.
On application of Mr. Hansen, Judge
Means issued a temporary order diI
recting the school board to permit the
girls to return to their studies. They
did so, without reservations or nmendLLED

iungary, may yet be brought forth.
ie, now that bis father has died la
Jmlsts,
ments as to skirt length. Then the
school board filed a demurrer to
Judge Means' jurisdiction, which the
judge \ipheld, and Hansen's attorney
announced an appeal to the supreme
court.
The action of the school board stirred
up a hornets' nest in the usually
placid community of Vinland. Supporters
of the school board said the
board was rigrht that three inches below
the knees was a liberal allowance
for skirts. Others, particularly friends
of the "girls' mothers, said they believed
Mrs. Hansen and Mrs. Buchanan,
who made the costumes in question
at home knew more a\>out. wbat
was right and modest for girls to
wear than any three men in the country,
school board directors or not.
Judge Means was made the recipient
of much unasked advice and commendation,
from hundreds of persons
in all parts of the United States.
Serious minded women wrote to
him gravely, pointing out the merits
of short skirts from a sanitary standpoint.
Others feared the decadence of
national morals, and still others were
cbnqerned over the peril of national
liberties if school boards were to be
permitted to determine styles.
The most valuble adherents of
short skirts among Judge Means'
correspondents were women.
One woman said that morals and
skirt lengths had no connections, that
it was all a question of the purpose
and intent with which clothes were
worn. Another declared skirts anywhere
between the knees and the shoe
tops were entirely proper.

man of the city told this one on himself
and a turtle today:
"Some time ago I conceived thfe idea
of making a little home brew for the
use of myself and some of my friends.
I hnd the manufacture of gin in mind
so I bought seme sweet spirits of niter
