President To Be Home In About Three Weeks iinnnr ninnrn SUNDAY BILL; 34 T018 VOTE Hearing to Come on Social Wel fare Bill in Senate Next Monday By Special Correspondent. TRENTON. April 3.—On the eve of its closing next week the State Sen. ate will be confronted with a deter mined fight on the Hyland Bill to legalize Sunday ••movies” and other forms of entertainment and sports on the day of rest. The house of ..ssem bly. by a vote of 34 to 19 has endors ed the measure and it now goes to the upper blanch of the Legislature. Those who voted for it come mainly . from the populous sections of the State. The vote was as tyjllows. Ayee—Augenblick, Barret, Bowen, < 'asale, Oopplnger, Cross, Donovan, Downs, Evans, Finley, FY>xhall, Fre und, Gaede, Headley, Hershfield, Hy land, Judge, Kirkpatrick, McAteer, .Morgan, Muro, Nolan, Rogers, Schultz, Slegler, Silver, Simpson, Snow, Stan ton, Sullivan, Tattersal), Whalen. Young, of Morris County. Nays—Agan, Ammcrman, Black well, Blair, Cochran, Gill, Glover, Keliman, Lake, Lewis, Moore, Pier son. Reeves, Robinson, Shields, Tozer, Warner, Wight and Young, of Mon mouth County. The bill was advocated by Demo cratic Leader Barrett, of Newark. He said it carried a referendum giving the people of each community the right to decide for themselves whether they wapted the Sunday amusements. He declared the measure contained propafc. checks to Prevent *n abuse- of its provSTori” One hearing was hold on the bill before the house committee on so cial welfare. but for some reason the opponents never heard it announced and failed to be present. It is under stood they will marshal their forces S on the Senate now and demand a public hearing in that body. Assemblyman Warner. Republican, of Union, charged that unfair tactics had been engaged in in the House when the hearing was planned. This he said had prejudiced him against the bill. Agans. of Hunterdon, a Democrat, and Lewis, of Monmouth, a Republican, both attacked the bill. “I am opposed to commercializing the Sabbath,” said the Hunterdon member. “No legislature has the right to conflict with the taw of God. , I am Just as much a Christian in the New Jersey Legislature as I am in my own home town. This is a very vic ious bill. It would drive a wedge in the Sabboth and open the way for the establishment of the Continental Sun day which has been the ruination of Europe. Lewis said a higher question than that contended for by the proponents of the bill—the providing of recrea tion for the people—was involved, namely, the keeping sacred of the Seventh day of the week. He charged that “money making” and not the >elfare of the people was the real j reason behind the bill. Assemblyman Wight, of Middlesex, wanted to know why an opportunity had not been given the opponents of the Dill to protest against it at the public hearing. Barrett answered that they had. Assemblyman Warner then declared that he had searched high and low for evidence to prove that the hearing date was ever given proper publication and had failed to find the information. Barrett declared himself to be a Christian, as well as Agans, and a church member, and added that there was nothing inconsistent with religion or church teachings In the Hyland bill. Delegation From Here. As president of the Civic Better ment League, Joseph F. Walker, when Informed this morning that assembly bill 291. which provides for a legal ized commercialization of the Sab- i bath had passed the assembly yes terday by a vote of S4-19, declared that he and as large a delegation as > possible would journey to Trenton Monday and as representatives of the league enter a vigorous protest against the bill when it comes up before Sen ator Hammond’s commute for a pub lic hearing in the senate at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. It is generally believed by members of the league here and by others who are strenuously opposed to the Hyland legislation, that the bill can be de feated if a large number go down to Trenton on Monday and indicate by their presence that there Is a decided sentiment adverse to the measure, which. It Is asserted by some, would practically abrogate the American Sabbath. It Is known here that sev eral of the Protestant ministers of the city Intend to attend the hearing | on Monday and present arguments against the measure relative to its as pect in regard to religion. It was remarked also this morning that the league had anticipated the bill would pass the assembly because of the unfair hearing which It was accorded in the assembly, when It came before .that body for discussion a week ago Monday. It is also thought that the legislation Is entirely too liberal in its fnternretatlon and that it is not for the betterment of the people, aa Is asserted, but for mere pecuniary gain to the managers and owners of places which would be benefited by the passage of the bill. len’a Taxi able Service » Brunswick An. • / , * V MONSTER DRIVE STARTS MONDAY; AIRSHIP TO DROP APPEALS ON CITY Perth Amboy to know There’s a Drive on, From Plans of Finance Committee % t—. •" Facts About Drive The "Welcome Home” drive starts Monday.

The finance committee Is filled with all manner of enthusiasm over the drive and they feel, confidently, that the city will respond with a sur prising fund, which will permit of an unprecedented celebration whon the dates are finally set by the celebra tion committee itself. Already money making schemes have been devised which should yield a subsantial sum. The finance committee last night at a conference decided to conduct a ten day campaign, opening Monday and closing on April 17. Business and professional men will forsake their personal affairs for a time to devote their entire attention to boosting and booming the fund. With the previous war fund drives as their guides they will go into the campaign Just as earnestly as the boys who will be honored went into he greatest campaign of all times. Each worker will be armed with receipts and an attractive button which will show that the wearer Is a contributor to the fund. Both the receipt and the button will be given every contributor. Each night the workers will report to their captains the result of the day's solicitation. In this way the re sult each day will be known as the campaign progresses. John Reilley was made chairman of the sub-committee on Industries at the finance commlkee meeting last night and Patrick White was added to the industrial committee. It is also planned to open the booth at the five corners, State, Smith and New Brunswick avenue, where contri butions will be received during the camps ign. Joe Humphreys—he of the silver Lotus Club, has volunteered to take up a collection on Friday night, when the Potty-Curry bout comes off. The advance sale of tickets for the fight has assured a crowd that will pack Palace hall to its utmost capacity and It is to this crowd that Announcer Joe Humphreys—he of t he silver tongue—will appeal for funds.

These letters have been forwarded to the Bureau of Naturalization offices at Philadelphia and the desired Informa tion will be secured from the federal officers there. The great activity being shown among foreigners who have not yet se cured their citizenship papers but who are now taking necessary steps to so make It appear as if what might be termed an "Americanization boom" had been started in this city. The court at New Brunswick has been visited by Perth Amboyans during the past week or so In large numbers and the enthusiasm shown by the Russians of the city at the big Ameri canization mass meeting held last Sunday In Pulaski Hall speaks for It self. This work, the full realization of the size and importance of which is gradually coming to the citizens of this oountry, offers a splendid oppor tunity for real Americans to lend a helping hand to their foreign brothers. By pointing out American Ideals to , the foreigner and ,.meeting him half way-’, in business and social projects, the non-citizen soon begins to realize that living in this country as an alien does not hold for him all the pos sibilities which would be his if he was the possessor of his flnal papers and a better American. Many of those who desire papers have not the sllghest idea of how to proceed and many others who know the routine through which they must pass do not care to be bothered with the court proceedings connected with the securing of their papers. If, how ever, each citizen would take it upon himself to carry on an Americaniza tion and naturalization propoganda campaign of his own among these foreigners, they would see the matter in the right light, realize the advan tages of becoming an American citi zen and become enthusiastic to join the hundreds who have come to this country from foreign shores but now proudly display their citizenship papers and assert themselves to be true Americans.
