DAIL EIREANN FACES CRISIS UNDER THREAT (Continned From Page One.) army troops apparently striving to create trouble and upset the establishment of the Free State have been reinforced un til the situation assumes the aspects of guerilla warfare. The Blackwater River flows between the opposition forces near this little market town, which It held by Ulster constabulary. Across tLe narrow river, the ping-ping of sniperT bullets came from the Sinn Fein side with the dawn. So far, Ulster forces have been under orders not to fire except when attacked. The status of the souther! troops was not clear. They had bees repudiated by the provisional government, yet re ports from Sinn Fein encampments scat tered through the villages around Killy lea and Clannon raid many of the Irish Republican troops there were loyal to the Free State. A salient ford by the Blackwater’s bend at the eastern edge of the Tyrone-Mona ghan border has been heavily fortified by the northern forces. The bridges across the river have been destroyed and roads leading into Ulster fords have been en trenched to prevent flying automobile raids by Sinn Fein scouts. Aughnacloy and Dyan, towns In the miniature war zone resemble nothing so much as deleagucred villages in France from 1914 to 191S. It Is dangerous to movs from cover, for- sharp shooters are picking oft per sons on thi9 side of the river with skill that bespeaks service In France. SINN FEIN WATCH ULSTER MOVEMENTS. Sinn Fein scouts are obviously equipped with power field glasses. “German glasses” the Ulster troopers charge. Ulster troop movements are constantly under observa tion. One Sinn Fein farm house In a little salient projecting into the northern lines, has been made into a fort. A farm girl wa3 observed carrying pails of milk and provisions to the groups of scouts inside who occasionally sent rifle bul lets out across "no man's land” through improvised loop holes. Although bullets were ricohetting across the fire zone from the Sinn Fein side, this girl tiossed un concernedly, steadying her pails of fresh milk. Fire from the Ulster side was withheld, as a tribute to her bravery. The majority of the troops on either side are billeted in small parties in farm houses along the front whence fre quent sallies, with stratgetic bridgehead points as objectives, are made throughout the day. The main road are closely guarded by both sides. TWO POLICEMEN ARE KILLED BELFAST, March 23.—Two policemen were killed by a fresh outbreak of vio lence in Belfast today.

APPROPRIATION OF CITY’S FUNDS EXCEEDSINCOME City Controller Says $30,000 Worth of Ordinances Must Stay on His Desk. Thirty thousand dollars’ worth of ap propriation ordinances will continue to lie on the desk of City Controller Joseph L. Hogue because there already has been appropriated more money than can pos sibly be received in taxes and license fees this year, the controller announced today. He said he would tell the city council and department heads, whom he has Invited to a conference tonight, this and several other things. The Jewett administration left In the city treasury Jan. 2 approximately $136,000 In cash. But against this they left bills which will more than eat It up, Mr. Hogue said. The present ad ministration must pay SIOB,OOO interest on plaza bonds which the Jewett admin istration forgot to provide for in / the 1922 budget. Mr. Hogue, since Jan. 2, has paid $52,000 worth of bills left by the Jewett board of public works and $21,000 by the former board of safety. It was necessary to negotiate a tem porary loan of $500,000 several weeks ago to meet pa yrolls and other expenses in anticipation of the receipt of tax money. Os this there is left approximately $130,- 000. In the next month the city must meet pay rolls totalling approximately $184.000. * The ay roll of April 1 will almost us np the $130,000. Some time (luring April the city will receive an ad- | vance of tax money from the county treasurer. Last April $259,900 was re ceived. Meanwhile it will take some close figuring to keep from going broke until the tax money comes in, the con troller said. So far as meeting pay rolls the tension will be eased in May, when approximately $700,000 of tax money is expected. Around $1,200,000 is expected in the semi-annual settlement in June. However, the SSOO,- | 000 temporary loan will have to be re- ] tired out of the June receipts, so that some time in the fall it Is very likely that another loan will have to be made in anticipation of the November settlement. To add to the controller’s troubles the city council, at the request of Mayor Shank, last Monday passed an ordinance! reducing the dog license fee from $3 to $2. which means a loss of SS,UUO In city 11- : cense receipts.

There are few really genuine men. In tho tremendous strife and strain of life, it la difficult to produce four-square healthy men. Men who should stand out as men have developed themselves along one line. “We are leading a strenuous life. Men must have bread and a little butter Is nice. Bread is necessary. So is com munion- We are teaching the youth of the land to develop the body.

Are we today as rich In the real all-round men as In other days? No man or woman can go home and be satisfleld with conditions. The signs are not good. The tragedy Is we haven't the time to dream dreams aud catch the vision. The road of business and industrial life has often shut out and drowned the spiritual life. We have been feeding our heady aud brains and our hearts are starved. “What Is the so-called great man in the quiet of hls own life and mind? ! What do the angels sea in the heart of ] the ‘great man’ as he is sometimes ! called? Our civilization is hnnging In the balance.

GIVES TALK ON ‘AD’ PSYCHOLOGY Expert Declares Science Is Useful in Business. Scientific study of tho demands, tastes and inclinations of prospective customers almost invariably results in large financial savings to advertisers of merchandise, Harry D. Kltson, of the department of psychology of Indiana University, told members of the Advertising Club of In dianapolis at their weekly luneheon at the Chamber of Commerce today. Mr. Kitson illustrated his talk on “Psychological Research in Advertis ing” with a number of interesting charts showing the results obtained by the ap plication of scientific principle! to ad vertising. lie explained there are three fc rms of determining by psychology the value of forms of advertising ami of the best sys tems of merchandising. These three be designated as first, obtaining returns by trying out several systems under con sideration : second, by laboratory inves tigation and third, the historical. He laid great stress on the last which con sists in making a study of advertising of the past and results obtained by it. “The old adage ‘let me write the songs of a nation and I care not who writes its laws,’ should be amended by substituting the word ’advertising’ for songs,’ ’’ he said. “Just that much ~ower has ad vertising in our modern life. But with this power has come great responsibilities and perplexing problems." •"Mr. Kitson said experiments conducted by his class at Indiana University two years ago proved conclusively advertis ing has advanced greatly from the stand point of ethics in the last twenty years. Investigations of advertising of 1900 and 1920 had shown exaggerations occurred in twenty of one hundred advertisements in 1920 as against only two In every hun dred in 1920. Another interesting fact, he said, was that in 1920 only twenty of every one hundred advertisements contained infor mation regarding the product itself.

SECOND ATTACK ON ‘WET’ FORCES MADE BYTIRYS’ Flying Squadron Campaign Opens at Roberts Park M. E. Church. As the second assault npon the anti prohibition forces, James H. Woerten dyke, an attorney of Chicago, spoke at a meeting this afternoon at the Roberts Park M. E. Church. “People think prohibition is a settled proposition In law because It is In the Constitution," Mr. Woertendyke said. .‘‘Not only Is this the public sentiment of the dry forces, but of the wet forces as well. It is the most unsettled and unstable law in the United States. You argue that • the Constitution has been ratified and the law Is thereby sound and firm. The Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution merely covers the question. Constitutional provisions do not in them selves settle any question. It take* con gressional action to enforce the pro visions in the Constitution." This campaign is under the direction of the Flying Squadron and It got nnder way at meetings held yesterday at the Roberts Park Church. Dr. D. Leigh Colvin of New York, Frank S. Regan, an attorney of Rock ford, 111., and Ed Jackson, secretary of State, who presided at the meeting last night, were among the speakers. Mr. Regan answered certain arguments advanced to the “wets,”, as follows: “We have been told that unless we have a return of great liquor revenues we will be unable to pay our bills and that taxes will continue to soar, but that Is no so," said Mr. Regnn. “I know that here as well as In every State we have visited, you hear It said, that high taxes are due to the fact that the country went dry. No man needs to pay over $1 tnxeß. You can reduce taxes here to one-third of what you are paying any time you want to do it. How? Re potting on the tax duplicates the taxable property that -has been escaping taxa tion. One-third of our property is not assessed at all. “I am glad to see the time has come about when the women will be nbie to look into things from the viewpoint of a voter. You cannot bluff a woman." Dr. Colvin made a plea for the election of publie officers who are in sympathy with prohibition. 18 MORE DRY HEADS CHOSEN Haynes Says New Divisional Chiefs Have Been ‘Tried and Tested.* WASHINGTON, March 23.—Appoint ment of eighteen new divisional chiefs to direct the work of prohibition enforce ment in the recently-established elgtateeu areas of the United States was announced today by Prohibition Commissioner Haynes.

This has been tentatively fixed by the city and tho public service commission at $16,000,- 000.” i Lie traction head said tho commit tee's citation of the valuation of the West Washington street power house In the inventory is beside the point, be cause this Is one of the things thorough ly thrashed out by the commission two years ago and the inventory mentioned is that filed by the company In this hearing. Such inventory has nothing whatever to do with the present problem, Dr. Jameson insisted. SAYS COMPANY LACKS FAIR RETURN. “The law provides the way In which the commission shall arrive at the valua tion upon which our earning may be based. This has been done," he said. “Tho fact remains the company is not earning a fair return on this valuation. Because of this the company has no credit and without credit it can not get money with which to vlo new work.” Dr. Jameson said he thought the em ployment of an expert accountant by the committee an excellent Idea “provided besides having the power to go Into the company’s books that he have the breadth and ability to grasp the situa tion and authority to advise what should be done in order to procure the operation of the company so, with all Justice and fairness to the public, the company could get ahead and do the things that_ should be done.” City officials are discussing the ad visibility of employing an.expert for the committee out of the $5,000 fund for ex pert assistance given to the city legal department by the city council several weeks ago. night will empty your bowels complete ly by morning and you will feel splendid.

State Highway Commissioner Sees Nothing Wrong in * Candidacy. Lawrence Lyons, member of the State highway commission, today took Issue with Edward B. Wasmtith, on the pro priety of a person becoming a candidate for State chairman of a political party. Mr. Lyons sees nothing incongruous about bis announced ambition to direct the affairs of the Republican State com mittee which position is now occupied by Mr. Wasmuth. " T am willing to let my record as chair man in the Tenth district stand as a basis of comparison,” Mr. Lyons said. “Mr. Wasmuth says no one should seek the place of State chairman. I remember well Mr. Wasmuth sought my support very earnestly four years ago when hs was a candidate.” Governor McOray, when asked what he thought about a candidate’s seeking to become chairman, said he didn’t see why a man should not be a candidate for the chairmanship as well as any office In a party. Ho said he had taken no side In the matter. Mr. Wasmuth has declared he is not a canuldate for the chairmanship. “My only concern is the organization be solely for the party and not formed solely In the interest of any man’s am bition," he declared. The State chairman is selected bi ennially by the district chalrmep who, Is turn, are selected by the county chairmen. Mr. Lyons is not the only candidate for the place and, despite his statement to the contrary, many persons have ex pressed the belief Mr. Wasmuth would accept the Job If It were tendered to him again. John L. Moorman of Knox, is said to be casting eager eye on the place. Mr. Lyons has been chairman of the Tenth District for a number of years and says friction, lack of harmony, and failure to carry the district have not oc curred In many years.
