Nil I l.n.,IM'.l YUAIt. VOI,. t J XXV. No. M. Albuquerque, New Mexico, Thursday, November 23, 1922 riUCE nvE CENTS. -. W s s J JOUBNAL PLANS Li FOR DISPOSITION - OF MARINE BILL Of HOUSE MEMBERS! Fight Over the Administra tion Measure to Subsi clize American Merchant! Ships to Begin Today VOTE 200 TOIIO TO GIVE IT PREFERENCE Democrats A.crec at a Cau cus to Stand Solidly Against the Proposal; O'Connor Dissents "Washington, Nov. "2. The road, was swiftly cleared today for an; early end of the house fight over! the administration shipping bill,' which will begin tomorrow. ; A special resolution Riving the j bill right of way was put through the house by a vote of 200 to HU.' It followed party lines, although'' three democrats supported and 16! republicans opposed it. Generally sneaking, leaders said, it did not in dicate the line up when the house votes on final Passage November 29. Immediately after the action of the house, democrats agreed at n party caucus to stand up solidly against the measure, enactment of which was urged yesterday by President Harding in an address to a Joint session of congress. One democrat at tho caucus O'Connor of Louisiana served notice that he would not bo bound by tho de cision, at tho samo tlmo Announc ing he was in favor of tho bill. Soldier lJoniis Issue The soldier bonus issue was in jected into tho debate by Repre sentative Johnson, republican, of South Dakota, who announced thtit he would vote to permit the house to consider the bill, but would not vote for Us passage. Sir. Johnson declared no party could survive that refused to give a bonus to soldiers and then give a bonus to ships. Sharply contrasting views were presented by Representative Mon dell, Wyoming, the republican leader, and Rperesentativo Garrett, Tennessee, the democratic leader. Mr. Mondell asserted that the re publican administration had not been able in eighteen months to cure the evils left by a democratic administration, particularly with reference to the shipping problem. It wasaquestion, he said of a con structive, or A destructive policy. Turning to members on the repub lican side, Mr. Mondell said they could not escape the responsibility of meeting the issue in this con gress. Running Truo to Form .Mr. Garrett declared that in at tempting to forco the bill through the republican administration, 'with the death rattlo in its throat, was running truo to form in fa voring the special interests." Tt was surprising, he said, that the drive for the bill should be made immediately after the administra tion had been "repudiated and dis credited" at the polls. Pleading for action, Chairman Campbell of the rules committee challenged opponents of the bill to bring forward something better. Taking stock tonight after the first skirmish, republican leaders asserted the bill would pass the house with at least 25 votes to spare, hut they declined to specu late on its chance in the senate. The view was expressed by oth ers that if defeated, it would go down at the hands of the repub licans and that the question of final enactment by the house de pended upon the fate of a-raft of amendments, to be offered.

Kansas City girl WHO claims to ue a cuuhui ui ( Robert M. La Pollette, United States senator from Wisconsin, left Albu-j nueniue last night to Join her father in California, after a partic ularly trying experience here. Mrs. .Stark is the 17-year-old girl who answered an advertisement in the Kansas City Star, which is alleged to have been inserted by Christian Dunn of thiscity, and then came to Albuquerque only to stumble into a case which police say skirted closely on the border of the Mann act. Christian Dunn, the man who appeared in tho case, was tried yes terday afternoon in tho police court. Judge George Roddy pre sided and District Attorney K. IS. Garcia was present to investigate. 1uiiii Pleaded tiiii''- Dunn pleaded guilty to having signed the register at a local hotel as himself and "wife." Un der this plea Garcia agreed not to prosecute under the Mann net pro viding Dunn would pay the ex penses of Mrs. Stark to Ontario, Calif., where shB is to Join her father. Dunn agreed to pay these expenses and posted the money for this purpose. He was also fined $33 by Police Judge Roddy and wus sentenced to serve three days in Jail. The story of Mrs. Stark gives the details of the case. Mis. Stark, a! beautiful brunette of IT told her story to a representative of the Morning Journal last niiiht, in a simple, girlish, unaffected manner. I At times she stopped in her nnr-' rutive, apparently to gain control, and then went on in tho same sim ple manner. She said she will he 18 years old December 9 next, Her muimten name was Delia La Fnllctte aniF she is, she said, a cousin of the; United States senator from Wis consin. Her father. G. C. li. Fol-i lelte, is now at Ontario, Calif. llei If, sho stated, a first cousin of Sen-, ator l,a Follette. Her mother. who is now Mrs. Alice Achterbery, lives in Kansas City. Decided to Marry The girl has made her home with her mother in Kansas City. Last summer George Stark, a member of tho United States navy, wit s granted a furlough to visit his home, which is also at Kansas City. Stark and tho girl, now his wife, hud been boy and girl sweethearts and they, decided to marry during tho period of his furlough, as it would be a long wait, of more thai-. a year, before be would he free I from lils enlistment in the navy. They were married July 22 of, this year. A short time alter their marriage Stark was compelled to i return to his ship, the time of his! furlough having almost expired.) Ho rejoined his ship, the U. S. S. Cleveland, and is now serving ; aboard that ship at Balboa, Canal Zone. 'i Tho young wife, left alone, dc- ckled she would obtain employ ment and thus add to P.o "neat egg" which Stark is putting by from his pay in tho navy. Stark! is to Join his wil'o at tho end of his "cruise" and the nest, is then to be! built with the money which has accumulated In the "nest egg." With this thought in mind Mrs Stark perused the advertising col umns of the Kansas City dailies. Finally she happened on one in the Kansas City Star which she thought would fill tin? bill. It call ed for a young lady to net as nnrse for children who were to bo taken to California from Albuquerque. This opportunity looked particu larly desirable. It .would take her to California where her father is now located and she wanted to re join him. Moreover, she and her husband had planned upon going to California to settle after he leaves the navy. She read tho 'ad vertisement last Wednesday, No vember 15. Replied to Advertisement Se Mrs. Stark wrote to Albuquer que in reply to the advertiser"-"t. Moth she and tho local police de clare that Dunn then wired her funds for transportation from Kan sas City. She left there Monday night at 10:20. Her mother was not as entirely satisfied as was the girl that all was well. So the mother wired the Albuquerque police asking them to investigate the case and to take whatever action these investiga tions led them to consider advis able. The result of these investigations was that Chief of Police Galusha detailed Officer George E. Wyatt to meet the girl at tho railroad station. Upon her arrival at 12:35 Tuesday night, Wyatt met her and escorted her to the police Etation. As soon as she had given the police the information they sought she was escorted to a hotel. The investigations further led to the police taking into custody Christian Dunn, the man alleged to have inserted the advertisement in tho Kansas City Star and to have wired transportation to tho girl. Dunn's trial and the sentence im posed yesterday afternoon fol lowed. 'Mrs. Stark left Albuquerque nt 8:30 last night, en route for Cali fornia. She will Join her father at Ontario. Calif. Before leaving last night r.he said Bhe intends to re main with her father until her hus band is discharged from the navy and Joins her. HARINGT0N ISSUES A.

The asso ciation had as Its object the regu lar testing of dairy cows with a view to increasing tho quality und ouamitv of milk produced. By keeping accurate records of feed consumed and the amount ami richness of milk given by dairy, it is possible to determine which cows are profitable to maintain and which should be replaced. This system is followed closely in dairy centers in all parts of tin country and is found ;o he instru mental in improving the quality of dairy herds, with a constituent iu crea'so in profit for the dairymen. County Agent Lee .1. Reynolds is furthering the revival of the as sociation here.

It -is more profitable, he said, to sell a poor producing cow for beef, nt a sacrifice on her original cost, rather than keep her iu a duiry herd consuming ioou that should be given to a good pro ducer.
