POLICE WILL FIGHT SHANK CANDIDATES Say Broken Promises Have Lost Him Support of Department. That the eight-hour day for policemen ■will l)o an important factor in the primary election became; known today ■when it •; s learned there has been formed 3 combination of policemen and their political friends to fight the nomi nation of aty candidate - supported by Mayor Shank It has long been an open secret to those in close touch with the police de partment that there Is dissension among the police and that few if any policemen are satisfied with the working conditions and hours forced upon them by the present Administration. Former Mayor Jewett started the eight-hour day plan and the policemen liked it. When a candidate for mayor, Shank promised that the eight-hour day for policemen would continue. Shank had been mayor just forty eig'it hours when the eight-hour day plan w - js changed and the men forced to work twelve hours'a day. The coniplaluts a that time were few. for every man feared for his job. However, a few lead ers have appeared among the men tnd the dissatisfaction with the twelve-hour day working plan has become genital. Many of the policemen have carefully checked over tlie list of candidates for nomination and have determined which ones are hacked by the Shank political machine. These are r.n the “black list. - ’ Ttofh Republican and Democrat police officers are secretly busy fighting the mayor's political organization. A prominent member of the police force said “Os course we can not come out In the open and tight, for we would be f red on some trumped up charge, but we can fight through a secret organization and are being aided by our friends. It was the police department that nominated l.ew Shank anil the police had much to do with his being elected. It is a story of broken promises on the part of the mayor, lie promised us that the eight hour shift would continue and in Just two days after he was mayor the men were forced to work twelve hours a day. Wait until th* primary election and the public will see th power of the police department in politics ” Marriage Licenses Tonis I'rana. 927 Warman 2k Anna Kos. 927 Warman 21 Hnrnev B.

FOX NEWS WEEKLY. TERMITES AND APHIS START SPRINGDRIVE White Ants Attack Homes and Apple Lice Endanger Orchards. With the coming of spring, insects are beginning their troublesome activities. Already there are numerous cases of destruction by termites or white ants reported to the division of entomology of the State conservation department, Harry F. Dietz, assistant entomologist, said today. In one Instance these Insects caused over SI,OOO damage in a residence before their presence was discovered. With the swelling and opening of the apple buds several orchardists reported the presence of a large number of small dark green plant lice clustered in the buds which, Mr. Dietz declares, are apple grain aphis. In the case of termites the insects gain entrance to the woodwork of buildings through wood joists, beams nr supports in direct contact with the ground. They bore,, through the wood pulveriz ing it until the attacked parts soon collapse. They leave a saw dust trail which is helpful in locating them. Frequently, after colonizing, they emerge into the house or building in swarms and are very annoying. Removal of the wooden parts touching the ground and substitu tion with brick, concrete or metai is the proper and effective means of eradication, conservation officials say. The apple-grain aphis lays its eggs on the apple in the fall and the young hatch ing in th" spring give rise to a winged generation which migrates from the apple to various grasses and grains. This mi gration tnkes place before the apples bloom, so this Insect is not an impor tant apple pest and it is unnecessary to eradicate it. However, it is often confused with an other plant louse, the green apple aphis, which spends its entire life on the apple and does serious damage. It is impor tant that orchardists distinguish between the two. and imperative the latter be re moved if an apple crop is to be suc cessful. It can be eradicated by adding nicotine sulphate to the so-called first summer or pink spray. This s lutlon used as a spray consists of lime sul phur solution (commercial) one and one fourth gallons, arsenate of lead (dry) one pound. three-quartes of n pint of nicotine sulphate, and fifty gallons of water.

Uncle Sam Wants Money Not Talk About Debt WASHINGTON, April 18.— Hints thrown out by the allied statement at Genoa that a second international gather ing may follow the present conference, at which the United States would be a par ticipant, have fallen on barren ground bo far as this Government is concerned. It was made clear in Administration quarters today that, while the United States is not refusing invitations in ad vance of their being received, this Gov ernment. nevertheless, has no intention of being drawn into a general world con ference whose principal aim, apparent.y, would be to discuss liquidation of inter national debts. In the first place, it was stated au thoritatively, such a conference inevitably would lead to cancellation suggestions, nnd that the United States is not prepared to discuss at this time any measures looking to general cancellation of war debts. On the contrary what the United States wants to discuss is payment. • In the second place, the American debt funding commission of five members, re cently created by Congress, is now pre paring for a Beries of extended negotia tions with debtor nations over payment, not cancellation. The commission, com posed of Secretaries Mellon, Hughes and Hoover, and two congressional represent atives, Senator Smoot, Republican of Utah, and Representative Burton, Repub lican of Ohio, held its initial session to day, for purposes of organization. Negotiations will be conducted with debtor nations singly and not collectively. The positton of this Government Is that the money was borrowed individually by the various countries concerned, and no reason is seen for not collecting it the same way.
