Rumsory body
Will Call for Industrial Parlia
ment to Aid in Labor and
Capital Problems.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.—A parliament
of industry, to assist congress in dealing
with problems of capital and labor, is to
be proposed in a bill now ‘being drafted
and shortly to be introduced in the
senate, it was learned today.
The plan was conceived some time ago,
but held up pending the outcome of the
first and second industrial conferences
called by President Wilson. It was to
be presented as soon as details could be
worked out.
Following the Canadian Idea, the bill
will call for a general Industrial parlia
jpent to draw up a code for Industry.
islation recommended to congress by the
industrial body.
PUBLIC'S representation
Tentative plans call for 100 labor mem
bers to be chosen by unions and other
groups of employes, 100 representatives
of capital to include business and pro
fessional men. A third group probably
will be added to represent the public,
composed of fifty or one hundred mem
bers. This part of the plan has not
been worked out definitely. It was said.
“Criticism of the proposal' as being too
unwtieldy is anticipated,” the author of
the bill said today, ‘‘but it Is based
on the theory that the industrial con
gress will be a melting pot of all Ideas
affecting capital and labor and that com
plete representation of all groups Is
necessary. Out of the scores of Ideas and
viewpoints represented, legislation to be
recommended to congress can be
The bill itself will call on the presi
dent to call an industrial parliament as
described. It Is then expected that the
parliament will make itself a permanent
body. Drafting a code of principles re
lating to recognition of collective bar
gaining, living wages and peaceable set
tlement of disputes is tbe first task tbe
organization would have, according to
present plans.
It is also contemplated that a body
similar to the war labor board —to be
the executive body to carry out prin
ciples approved by the congress and en
acted into law—shall be set up.
Discuss Naming of
* Secretary of Treasury
WASHINGTON', Jan. 12.—Secretary of
Treasury Glass conferred with President
Wilson today relative to the appointment
of a successor, when Secretary Glass
takes the oath of office as a senator
from Virginia.
It Is expected *that an auuouncement
as to the new secretary of treasury will
be made tomorrow or today.
Secretary Glass Is the third cabinet
member the president has seen since
his Illness.
The conference between the president
and Secretary Glass gave rise to new
rumors as to the appointee and the
names of Martin Glynn, of Albany and
John Burke, treasurer of the United
States, were mentioned together with
that of R. C. Leffiugwell, assistant secre
tary of treasury.
Says Soldiers Want

L by the United States senate, Sarah Mil-
Wred Willmer, war worker and enter-
Bt&lner, declared at the T. M. C. A. Big
at English's opera house on
Sunday afternoon. She served In France
and spoke of her experiences there.
“The league of nations covenant is not
perfect, but neither is anything else de
signed by human hands," she said. ‘ But
even though the league is not perfect, it
is something toward the maintenance of
peace and our boys want It. They de
serve It and for this reason alone we
ought to push It across."
Price Peril Seen
in Grain Change
NEW YORK, Jan. 12.—Warning of
price hazards which may confront wheat
and flour handlers after the withdrawal
of government control when the activities
of the grain corporation are brought to
an end next June, Is contained today in
an official bulletin Issued by Julius H.
Barnes to 42,000 licensees of the wheat
director in all parts of the United States.
Emphasis Is placed on the fact that
“the reduction of commitments to the
minimum required for the conduct of
necessary purrent business" will be a
wise commercial policy for the grain
trade upon the etrrainatlon of two years
of official stabilization and in view of the
present world situation.
Lady Suffered Terribly for Eight
Weeks But Her Case Showed
Wonderful Improvement
After Taking Cardui.
Johnson City, Tenn.—Mrs M, R.
Scott, living near this town, states:
’ “About three years ago I was down
in bed , . . terrible and so weak I
couldn’t bear the sight of food. This
condition continued for about eight
weeks ... I thought I was go
ing to die, and knew' I must get some
thing to do me some good. 1 had
heard all my life of Cardui and the
good results obtained from its use.
So I decided to try it
“After about a half bottle of Cardui
my appetite Improved, then I was less
nervous. I kept it up until I had
taken five bottles—and such an im
provement! I gained flesh and now
am the picture of health, due, I be
lieve, solely to the use of Cardui. I
am the mother of ten children and
feel well and strong.'’
Cardui is a mild, medicinal tonic
for women. It has stood the most
severe of all tests—the test of time,
having been in use for over forty
years. It is composed of purely veg
etable ingredients, which have been
found to help build up the vitality,
tone up the nerves, and strengthen
■he womanly constitution.
Try Cardui.-—Advertisement.
Pure Democracy by 1930 Ob
ject of *Anti-Sin' Drive.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.—Treat ten
derly the vices you h-ave left. It may
not be long before they are taken from
yon—one by one legislated out of exist
“Make our democracy pure by 1930,”
is the slogan of reformers gathered in
Washington today to unite on plans for
a grand drive against sin. Reformers
of every kind and from everywhere—the
biggest collection over seen in these
parts. They represent the gathering of
ali notional reform organizations.
The assembled reformers are hot for
action against all manifestations of
wickedness, from prize fighting to po
lygamy. They will hold “purity” mass
meetings, addressed by William Jennings
Bryan and Attorney General Palmer. All
of the senators and congressmen have
been given reserved seats.
Among the organizations represented
are the International Reform Bureau,
tbe W. C. T. U., the National Temper
ance Union and the Intercollegiate Pro
hibition association. They are holding
separate and joint meetings. They have
dedicated tbe week to joy and thanks
giving because of the prohibition victory.
The International Reform Bureau,
which boasts of a board of directors
that Includes such distinguished charac
ters as Senator Poindexter and Senator
Sherman, has an elaborate “anti-sin” pro
gram. it is out to reform everything
from marriage to labor leaders.
This year being the 300th anniversary
of the landing of the Mayflower, Rev.
Dr. Wilbur F. Craftr, superintendent,
says it should be a fine year for puttiug
purity across. However, he advises
against ordering the 1921 advanced styles

or two before- the program of the high
cost of dressing is solved by wings.

LONDON, Jan. 12.—Regret that the
United States did not participate In rati
fication of the treaty of Versailles is ex
pressed by today’s newspapers. Some
editorials strike a doleful note.
“The omission of America's signature
to the ratifyiug document,” says the
Telegraph, “stands for the bitter disap
pointment of the hope that glowed with
promise for humanity a year ago. It Is
true the league of nations exists by the
terms of the treaty, but the world knows
that unless and until the United States
adheres to the league and participates In
its actions not a tithe of the usefulness
and moral authority it should possess
will belong to It.”
The Telegraph also cites the absence
of Russia from Saturday’s ceremony and
says: “Until the sky in that direction
grows clearer there can be no world
peace nor any hope of it.”
Doubts of the reality of peace, behind
the formal act of ratification are ex
pressed by the Daily New*.
“There is not a nation which can not,
if it wishes, manufacture uew grievances
out of the settlement to trouble the
peace of tbe world,” it says. “Occa
sions of offense are so numerous they
obscure the very fact of peace.”

Says He’ll Ask Special Session
to Act on Legion Bill.
A bill providing for the establishment
of a headquarters at Indianapolis for the
American legion will be introduced in
the proposed first special session of the
legislature, Luther Symons, representa
tive from Henry county, has promised a
committee of the legion. Mr. Symons’
promise is the first indication that there
would be a definite effort to bring about
the consideration of other measures be
sides suffrage by the legislature.
Representative Symons has Informed
the Indiana Woman’s Franchise league
that he will not consent to .the considera
tion of the suffrage amendment only,
because be believes the consideration of
a bill to provide headquarters for the
legion to be necessary at this time. He
pointed to the fact that Indianapolis
must have a permanent headquarters
building well under way before the na
tional convention of the legion in Sep
tember of this year or the national head-
will be taken away
from InaNmapoils.
The national executive committee of
the legion has not decided whether it
shall give its approval to the presenta
tion of a bill of this nature to the first
rpecial session, according to Dr. T. Vic
tor Keene, Indiana member of the com
mittee. Dr. Keeene takes the stand that
it probably would be more advisable
to wait until the second session.
Representative Symons was urged to
support the measure by a committee
appointed by a Henry county post of
the legion on instructions to Raymond
S. Springer, state commander. The in
structions were sent out before* a locat
committee called on Gov. Goodrich nn<l
obtained a statement from him to the
| effect that the measure could not be
taken up before the second session.
The letter sent to post commanders by
t the state commander asked that each
: member of the legislature be pledged to
support such a measure. All posts with
! the exception of Attica post No. 52 ex
pressed approval of the plan to have
the state fluanee the construction of a
headquarters building. This post took
the stand that the legton should build
its otto home and not ask one state to
build a home for an organization cover
ing forty-eight states.
