Strike Has Cost State About $1,000,000—Do Not Be lieve Impeachment Pro ceedings Likely Denver, Colo.. May 4.—The Colorado legislature will provide a means of meet ing the state military indebtedness of approximately $1,000,000 before a long re cess of final adjournment is taken. This was the consensus of opinion expressed by house and senate leaders at the con clusion of thp joint executive ‘session late today, at which the subjects con tained in the governor’s call were dis cussed. ’ Tt was understood that the only vote taken was on a proposal to pay the mili tia. name an investigating committee to inquire into conditions in the strike zone and take a recess of 30 or 60 days. This proposal was defeated by practically a unanimous vote and the joint executive session was dissolved without formulating a definite plan of procedure. Supporters of the administration ex pressed elation over the developments of the first day of the extra session and freely predicted there would be no at tempt made to get a resolution proposing the Impeaching of Governor Ammons through the house. This prediction was based on the caucus vote for speaker. Discussion in the executive session, It was said, almost unanimously favored : Young men have found that money spent for a diamond is money ; well invested.

It was said, would likely be the first task undertaken. On the other questions in the call sentiment did not seem to be well crystallized. These tnoluded a law submitting to the people at the next election a constitutional amendment em powering the legislature to enact a com pulsory arlbtratlon law. to establish a state constabulary, to give the governor authority to close saloons and to regu late and prohibit the sale, gift or pur chase of firearms and ammunition, ex cept by proper authorities, in times of internal disorder. Would Have Shot Rockefeller New York, May 4.—“Yesterday I was at the office of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and if I could I would have shot him down like a dog.” In these words Marie Ganz voiced her protest against Mr. Rockefeller, according to the testimony of Irving E. Kttinger. a police headquar ter’s stenographer, at the trial of Miss Ganz today on a charge of disorderly con duct The woman was arrested last week aft^r she had ipade several fruitless at tempts to see Mr. Rockefeller in connec tion with the Colorado mine workers strike and had addressed open air meet ings. IStlinger testified to two other alleged excerpts from the defendant's speeches. One was “if he is not going to stop the slaughter in Colorado he can run to his father's house and hide, because at the first chance 1 will get him with a bullet.” The other was: “Do not make you pro testations in kind words or in language. I’se dynamite.” Several detectives testified for the prose cution and adjournment was taken until tomorrow. If found guilty Miss Ganz w ill be liable to a maximum penalty of six months in the workhouse. THREE SESSIONS OF SOCIOLOGISTS HELD YESTERDAY (Continued from Page Five) tient study of individual cases; by con stant regularity in personal habits, such as eating, sleeping, exercise, play, as well as by a lively personal inter est i.ian'fested among his teachers pnd officers in his sports, troubles and studies. “As any institution progresses and the number of children increase, addition al problems present themselves. The classes of children are more diversi fied. We have w’hat may be classed as truants: then w*e have the delinquents, and vet again, the deficient, or feeble minded and dependent. The scale of Intelligence is so divergent in these several classes that it is plainly Im possible for the children to receive much lasting benefit when we try to teach them or to discipline them as a whole—as one body. This being true, the answer is classification; then In dividual control and teaching. Then humanizing personal touch; the subtly, far reaching personal Influence—these are the elements demanded In these heir b ss lives committed to our care. In other words, the successful devel opment of the cottage system in insti tutional work. Age of Individualism “This is preeminently the age of indi vidualism. The leaps and bounds that civilization has taken through the ages— striding across the bridging centuries from Assyria and Babylonia, through Europe to America—clearly point to the fact that specialization, individualism, are the hallmarks of our day. “In this institution work one of the essential things is to know' and recognize the forces that shape character—that up build and make fair, or mar and destroy the unfolding nature of the child. Thus it remains for public benevolence to sub stitute for these poor homes whence these children are withdrawn-homes of ignorance, of impotence, of bereavement, and oftentime of evil—twie state home. “It then devolves upon the hoard of control of any institution so to regulate the* state home that it shall approximate a true home; a place that blesses and strengthens; and it seems that by and through the cottage system can this best be accomplished. “We realize afresh with each passing! year that our institution cannot pause —it must progress. The necessities of! today are not only greater than those of yesterday; they are different. And ready as we are to acknowledge that the state of Alabama has already done much, yet her task is far from complete. “Our ever-increasing needs—need of more space, more buildings more and better equipment—spring, logically, from our very growth; they are ?n one way the measure of our prosperity as an in dustrial school. Moreover, ns all teach ers of social economics have plainly de duced, it is cheaper—to put it on its low est plane It is actually cheaper, as well as vastly more prudent, to evolve a good citizen from a waif of a hoy than to suffer him to dearejerate into either a pauper or a criminal. It costs far less money to a community or & state or a country, in the long run: not to mention all those intangible, unweighahle results of good or evil that must fol low In either case; and not tb Insist upon those nobler and more altruistic motives for saving a soul alive.” Weller on Playgrounds Of more than usual Interest was the address of Charles F. Weller, asso ciate secretary of the Playground and Recreation Association of America. He made the statement that "Birmingham has led the south In promoting play grounds," which brought a hearty round af applause. “Play Is power In shaping children and young people," said Mr. Weller. "My little boy has no Interest In fill ing the wood box: that Is work. But he runs a hig, heavy wheelbarrow up a steep hill because he Imagines he !■ an engineer running a locomotive; that Is play. My best hope of making my boy a strong worker is to get hold of him through his free Interests, his play spirit. "Led by Its live Chamber of Com merce, Birmingham began to lake hold of its leisure-time problem last year. It raised $2000 to start the work of the southern field secretary of the Playground and Recreation Association of America, Thomas S. Settle. "He helped Birmingham to create six new playgrounds. The attendance from last July to January was 94, 082. Tt cost Birmingham only 2 Vfc cents i day per child. "Birmingham's Influence was also carried by Mr. Settle into 14 other southern communities last year. These, with Birmingham, have 306,264 chil dren. Less than 1 cent per child was the cost «$6500) of the whole year's work of the southern field secretary, who makes his headquarters with the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce." Other Alabama cities were advised to ask for Mr. Settles help In giving their children and young people a chance to play on supervised, publicly supported playgrounds.
