Church South TODAY'S PROGRAM General Conference and Executive Session This Afternoon?fiOO Teach ers Attending The State Teachers' Association, District H, held a public meeting last night in the M. E. Church South, and a crowd that filled the church was present. During the evening interest ing addresses were made by Dr. S. C. Mitchell, University of Richmond, and Harris Hart, superintendent of pub- i lie instruction of the State. The meeting was presided over by Profes sor Charles G. Maphis. of the Uni versity of Virginia. Mr. Maphis said that for many years he had been interested in Alex andria, and he recalled the old schools here, and he said that in former years it was not necessary to have a high school. He congratulated the city on obtaining plenty of ground as its site j for the High School, and he also con- j gratulated the city on its line school for colored children. Owing to the inability of Mayor Duncan, who was on a journey, to attend, the welcoming address was delivered by H. R. Burke, president of Common Council. Mr. Burke expressed pleasure at the teachers being guests in Alexandria, and said he hoped they would have a most successful convention. A response was made by F. P. My ers, who expressed the thanks of the association l'or the reception and hos pitality tendered the teachers, and especially to the Parent-Teachers' As sociation and the Kiwanis Club, and he said tjie teachers would like to come to Alexandria again. He gave a review of the progress made in teach ing. Concluding, he declared Alexan dria is a fitting place for all, especial ly Virginians. Fletcher Kemp, superintendent of the schools of Arlington County, who was scheduled to respond to the wel coming address, was unable to be present. Dr. S. C. Mitchell, of the University of Richmond, spoke on "Co-operation." Dr. Mitchell declared that the racial question make!? paramount the social question. The State now is concern ing itself with childhood, public schools, good roads and many other social courses, said the speaker, who declared the whole sphere of the State is changed. It is not surprising, therefore, that woman has come into power, he asserted. Dr. Mitchell de clared it is imperative that teachers take part in social statesmanship as never before. A review of the prog ress in the past 20 years was given by him. The advance of the public schools, he said, was one of the first things to. develop. The one great big advance, he asserted, is not due to po litical leadership, he saying that we are absolutely dependent on social statesmanship. Continuing, in part Dr. Mitchell said: "We have developed a great public school system. It has been a rich and fruitful half century for Virginia. I think the school ought to contribute its part to public discus sion. Suppose we had a great number of evils. In recent years we have made phenomenal progress. We need discussion, frank and fearless. The old school did not encourage it. It is a sad reflection to me that not a single college in the South challenged slavery. The great game of school ought to work for community life. "Under the old order we rer.ted on the home in the South and also upon the j church. The church, state and school are the cornerstone of the old South, and we are seeking the fourth?com munity life. "The farmers of the South are re constructing and solving the rural home life and the schools are doing much for community life. "What we need in Virginia are county councils. I think that all agencies making for the common good should be co-ordinated. When we get 100 counties organized we are going to see great results. Harris Hart, superintendent of public instruction, discussed school legislation passed at the last session of the Legislature. Great returns, he said, are promised from co-operation. In Denmark, Dr. Hart said, they have learned how to make politics serve the people. The great lesson we must learn, Mr. Hart said, is that politics of the right kind must make the right type of economics. Denmark, he said, has learned this iij^order that every man may have an eoual opportunity. Continuing, Mr. Hart said: "In Virginia the church, home and state are the fundamentals of society." Commenting on some of the meas ures in reference to schools passed by the last Legislature and some that did not pass, the speaker said it was an assembly tha tdid not dare increase taxes. As a result he said srreat constructive measures could hardly be Will Be Held in Leesburg, Virginia, June Twenty-Ninth Preliminary Arrangements Made Plere Last Night?Expect 10U Candidates Representatives of Acca Temple Mystic Shrine from Richmond, were in Alexandria last night and con ferred with local members of that | organization and made preliminary ! arrangements for a spring cere> I monial which will be held in Lees burg June 29. Attending the con ference here with E. A. Schmidt. Richmond, who is potentate of Acca Temple in Virginia, ani James H. Price, Richmond, recorder and Clinton L. Williams, past potentate, were delegations from Leesburg, [ Fauquier. Prince William and Alex andria. It is stated that the Shriners at this ceremonial expcc: to have more than 100 neopvtes who will cross the hot sands of the desert. considered. Last year Virginia spent $16,100,000 for schools. Mr. Hart I said that the bills presented to cut off expenses did not reflect the sen timent of the public. Of the constructive measures passed, Mr.- Hart said that the com pulsory attendance law was one. It among other things, he said, provides that children between 8 and 1-1 years shall attend either a private, nublie or parochial s-hool. It also, he said, provides that a truant officer may be appointed. Mr. Hart said that he hoped next autumn the State authori ties can onevnte with the compulsory education law by persuasion instead of by compulsion. The second measure, he said, was the county unit bill. There are, he said. G<13 such units, and the purpose of the bill is to reduce the number of officials. Under the new arrangement, 'ie said, the State will have one set of accounts, and there will be no reason, why teachers should not receive their salaries punctually in the future. He declared it would simplify matters. Concluding, Mr. Hart said that Vir ginia has accomplished something in the past, and a boy and girl in Vir ginia today has as fair a chance as in any State the sun shines on. The meeting was onened with in vocation by Rev. Dr. E. B. Jackson, pastor of the First Eaptist Church, and during the evening selections were given by the High School Glee Club, and a vocal selection was given j by Talbot Haslett. Mrs. Strauss was leader of the Ulee Club. The session this morning was ooened with prayer by Rev.

Washington, March 31.?Purchase of a building; at No. 3 Moltkestrasse. in Berlin, as a site for the American Embassy to Germany has been de cided upon by a commission coin posed of the Secretary of the Treasury and members of the Sen ate Foreign Relations Committee and House Foreign Affairs Commit tee. The cost of the building will be 10,000,000 marks, or about $70,000. It was formerly occupied by the Austro-Hungarian Embassy, but was offered for sale by a private individ ual. Authority for the purchase was contained in a recent diplomatic and consular appropriation bill and is carrying out the policy recently adopted whereby this government hopes within the next few years to acquire suitable embassy buildings in all countries with which Ambassa dors are exchanged If th? statement of John Thomas I Taylor, legislative agent of thi ! American Legion, is to be taken for ! it, prospects for the early enactment of the soldier bonus legislation are extremely brjjrht Taylor said today j that the bill will soon be taken up by the Senate Finance Committee, will bs reported to the Senate with only minor changes which will be acceptable to the House, will be passed by the Senatn reasonablv quick and will be signed by the President. However, inquiry among the members of the Finance Committee develops the fact that a majority of them are opposed to taking up the bonus matter until after the tariff bill is disposed of in that body. Senator Smoot. of Utah, one of the most prominent members of the Committee, declared after a visit to the White House, that the bonus would receive no consideration until the tariff bll is passed by the Sen ate. Other prominent Senators are aerainst any bonus consideration un til a revenue law is enactcd by Congress.

NEED FOR RISE IN COAL PRICES Secretary Admits strike Is Certain?Assails Posi tion of Operators URGES COMPLAINT Savs Costs Must Not Advance? ilouse Attempts to Arrange Appeal to President. Washington, March 31.?On the eve of the nation-wide coal strike, called for tonight at midnight, Secretary of Labor Davis issued a statement stat ing that the government's efforts to avert the sti ike have failed, laying sharp blame upon the soft-coal opera tors for refusing to confer with the miners and warning the public against paying higher prices for coal. "On the strength of these facts,' said the Secretary, after reviewing the condition of the reserve stocks in the country, "there will be no excuse for advance in coal prices. If the price is boosted in any locality the jait should be reported to Washington at once for action by the Attorney-Gen eral. The public should not be penaliz ed to pay any enhanced price for coal when there is no justification for any increase." At the same time. Congress sud denly manifested keen desire to do something. After a session of the House Committee on Labor devoted to consideration of Representative Bland's resolution for an inquiry, the committee instructed its chairman. Representative Nolan, to call on Sen ator Borah, head of the Senate ( om mittee on Education and Labor, to seek to arrange a joint appeal to President Harding to summon both sides to Washington for a conference. Notlvng resulted last night from this move of the House committee. Senator Borah said that he would have to consult the members of the Sen ate committee, and that could not be done before tomorrow. As for him self, he was opposed to the proposal. He assumed the White House had a plan ?nd he did not fepl thai it was wise for Congress to attempt to guide Mr. Harding. If Congress wants to do something. Mr. Borah thought it should proceed on its own responsibi ! ? ? i_ ? Secretary of Labor Davis, 111 his ! statement summoning the work that i has been done to prevent the strike 'and the existing conditions, said: : "All of the Governments efforts in i the proffer of mediation, conciliation t and compromise have failed to save th" eountrv from the national strike test of economic strength between em ?plover and employe in the coal sn i dustry. "In this dispute in the coal industry j President Harding and other Gov ernment agencies, chiefly the Depait jment of Labor, have for weeks coun seled this conference, provided for in ; the last joint agreement between the j operators and the miners. In this ef ' fort the President and myself nave had neither legal right nor personal Idesire to dictate any program. Our one ! desire has been to induce, by persua sion and urgence, the operators and j miners to discharge the obligations ' jhev assumed themselves to confer again for the shaoing of a new agree ment."

HOUSE Met at noon and adjourned at p. m. until noon today. Delivering a political address, Ma jority Leader Mondell asserted tint, despite the impression created "by certain writers and certain newspa pers," there never had been a time during his experience in Congress "when the relations between the Pres ident and Congress were more pleas ant. cordial, sympathetic and har monious than at the present time " Democratic Leader Garrett, of Ten nessee, pointed out many cases where in. he said, sharp differences of view? between the President and Congress were seen, and referred to the soldier bonus legislation of the House as an ex a mple. Chief Justice Taft. told the .f;i diciary Committee that legislation in creasing the discretionary power of the Supreme Court to review cases would enable that court to catch up with its docket and dispose of busi ness with greater dispatch. Chairman Fordney, of the Ways and Menus Committee, in a letter to the Senate Committee on Finance, an nounced that he wnu'd insist upon re tention of the American valuation plan in the new tariff bill, and for warded data showing that Spain, in additoin to England, has adopted that plan. The Labor Committee considered, but without taking action, a resolution requesting the President to issue an invitation to miners and operators to meet in Washington today in an effort to avert the coal strike. Fthelhert Stewart, commisisoner of statistics of the Department of Labor, told the committee the cost of living in many coal mining district? is greater than the earnings of the miners. The Immigration Committee or flered a favorable report on the bi!i authorizing the deportation of aliens convicted of violating Federal and State prohibition and narcotic laws.

March 31.?The Sen i ate late yesterday ratified the last of | the seven treaties ??f the Conference ! on the l imitation of Armament and j Far Fasten; Questions, and today will I go back to discussion of such domes tic things as coal strikes, tariff, the j soldier bonus and appropriation bills. By almost unanimous vote two trea ' ties, both relating to f'hina. were rati j tied. The vot:* on the nine-power j treaty for the territorial integrity of ! China was ratified by a vote of 05 to j 0. Only a few minutes later, since the ibody showed livtie inclination to pro j iong debate, the treaty covering an j increase in Chinese customs duties : was ratified. .">X to 1. ' Senator King, Democrat, of Utah, I o'?i in ioneiy opposition against the ; Chinese c ustoms treaty. He maintain ed that olht r nations had nothing to do with the customs duties of China, cither at the time they originally were prescribed or at the present, there fore he rather doggedly shouted his ' solitar. "no" wlvn his name was call : ed. Both Senator Lodge and Senator Underwood, of the American delega tion to the Arms Conference, were smiling as the final roi! calls were begun. Ii was apparent they were re 1 lieved as the burden of ratification re sponsibility was lifted from their shoulders. A Senator who did not know what the roll call was about hastened into ; the chamber and asked Senator Under wood. "It is a vote on the last of the i pacts," said Senator Underwood in a I voice audible in the gallery, and he j.smiled broadly and stretched bis arms. The kenate spent but five weeks in the consideration of the seven treat ies of the Arms Conference and dur ing this time the treaty debate has not been continuous. Discussion on ap propriation bills or other measures was some times sandwiched in for an hour or so a day. The treaty concern ing the Island of Yap was read to the Senate February 21 and it was the 'first ratified. The vote came March 12 and was 07 to 2-. Then followed throe weeks of de bate oil the four-power treaty, which was finally ratified by a vote of 07 to 27. the ratification forces having four more votes than were necessary. This ended the principal contest over the accomplishments of the Arms Con ference. The remaining live votes were un animous. or nearly so. as the following resume shows: "Treaty on submarine and poison gases and their use in warfare, unani mous. "Naval limitation of armament treaty, vote unanimous except for Senator France of Maryland, against. "Chinese customs treaty, vote unan imous except for Senator King, of I'tah, against. "Treaty covering the territorial in tegrity of China and other Chinese questions, unanimous. "Supplement to the four-power treaty, which excluded the mainland of .lapan from the four-power pact, unanimous. Except for the speeches of Senator Underwood and Senator Borah, the closing treaty debate was rather de sultory. In fact interest ha?l so dim inished that the vote on the first of the Chinese treaties came so unexpected ly thai only eight Senators were in the chamber as the roll ca!! began.
