The en cores wero greater in number, the audience in high spirits, the voices in better trim and the general at mosphere that of λ successful effort outdone a previous performance which had been considered almost perfect. Besides unbounded credit due the entire cast composed of 175 of the local people the success was largely due to those who wore in charge of the event, the staging and the work ing out of the business end which were of such great importance. Miss Claire Pfeiffer was in charge of the talent, Miss Dorothy Haddcn, tickets; Miss J,a Verne De Hamme, program, and Miss Sally Michaels, advertising and publicity.

Τ elephone Your Requirement Our Classified Will Do the Rest < i à Measures Intended to Stabil ize Coal Business and Fix Seasonal Rates Hy GEORGE H. MANNING (Washington Correspondent of Eve ning New».) WASHINGTON, D. C., June 15.— The coal Industry through ita tre mendously powerful organizations, has lined up to oppose passage of the two Frellnghuyeen coal bills now be fore congress intended to stabilize the coal business and to fix seasonal rates for transportation of coal. Formal notice of this formidable opposition was given Senator Jo seph S. Frellnghuyeen of New Jer sey yesterday in a letter of protest from George H. Cushlng. managing director of the American Wholesale Coal Association. These two bills, Nos. S 53 and 54, are next on the senate calendar and are expected to be the next measures taken up by the senate after the bill to regulate the packing industry, now under discussion, is disposed of. Senator Frelinghuysen framed these bills and reported them to the Sen ate two weeks ago from the commit tee on interstate commerce which has been conducting investigations of all phases of the coal industry off and on for the past two years. The bill S 53, incorporating sug gestions made by Chairman Clark of the Interstate. Commerce Commis sion. whose members unqualifiedly endorse it, authorizes the commis sion to initiate lower freight rates on coal during the spring and sum mer months and higher rates during the fall and winter months in order to encourage consumers to purchase in advance of their seasonal needs, thereby keeping the mines operating at full capacity ?11 the year around. The other bill, S 54, puts the coal industry under government control anil regulations. It gives the secre tary of commerce and the bureau of mines authority to investigate pro duction of coal stocks on hand, dis tribution and prices; costs and pro 1« 1. 1 I λ I ... . ·· ·*% P^V'· νν/·ι\4·^·ν/ι·^| »'W'/ · «« ν ι ν ι V t The bureau of mines Is authorized by the bill to Investigate the practi cability of a statutory zoning sys tem defining the distance from the mine to which the coal shall be transported, and the advisability of having all coal for the government purchased by one central agency. "The bill authorizing seasonal coal transportation rates will reduce the cost to the consumer and gener ally stabilize the price and the coal industry as a whcle," said Senator Frellnghuysen in his report to tfie senate. "The capacity output of all ths coal mines assuming fair con stant operation, would far exceed present consumption. The output of all these mines, working as at present only intermittently during the spring and summer months and working to capacity during the fall and winter months is barely suffi cient to supply the current needs and the greatly increased cold weather demand for coal. During the winter the demand so nearly equals the current available supply that scarcity prices prevail.

A conference has been called by the State Highway Engineer Thomas J. Wasser for Monday, Juno 20, Jn the commission's office in this city to which representatives of six of the largest gasolene distributing companies have been invited. The purpose of the meeting is to provide a solution for the problem which has arisen out of the location of gas tanks along the roadsides and at important intersections of roads. "The State Highway Commission is now confronted with a serious problem due to the density of "traffic which is using the State Highways of New Jersey." declared Mr. Was ser today. "Serious accidents have already occurred and traffic has been unnecessarily congested at sev eral points along the highway due to the fact that garage owners and Ail ing stations have tanks located along the highway within the graded right of way, and also along the curbs in municipalities. It is the intention of the commission to endeavor to ar rive at some solution of the prob lem as to the probable location of tanks in the future and also what is to be done with the gas tanks that are already placed." Another problem relating to con gestion which is confronting the highway commission has to do with the practice of farmers and garden producers generally in establishing sales stands along the right of way in front of their properties for the purpose of soliciting business from passing motorists. Hereafter automobiles which have burned or met with other accidents will not be permitted to remain on the roads for several days, it wag announced by Mr. Wasser, who said that the highway commission has de cided on a policy of immediate re moval of all such obstructions and menace to safe travel on the high • tiiylt CURD PARTY BI6 EVENT 4Γ SO.
