MERGER AFTER 10-YEAR TRY IS EFFECTED KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 22.—After tea years of ceaseless effort the Interna tional Sunday School Association and the Sunday School Council of Evangelical denominations were merged into one body today. The plan to merge the two great todies directing religious education among the Evangelical churches was adopted at today’s session of the interna tional Sunday School conference. Tha new organization will be known as the International Sunday School Confer ence of Religious Education. ‘NOW WE ARE IN, LET’S STAY’ IS SENTIMENT Broad Ripple Citizens Hold Meeting to Consider Annexation. “We are a part of Indianapolis now. Let's stay that way,” was the sentiment expressed by Dr. R. C. Light, principal speaker at a meeting on the question of the annexation of Broad Ripple to Indi anapolis at Shadd's Hall, Sixty-First street and College ave.iue, last night. “We have a higher tax rate than Indi anapolis,” Dr. Light said, “but we rnusn't advertise this or perhaps Indianapolis may change its mind and not take us in.” The meeting was arranged by those who favor annexation and the purpose of It was to find ways and means to fight the remonstrance proceedings and court ac tion of those who oppose annexation. Speakers included B. F. Osborn, tem porary chairman; Claude McElwaine, J. Edward Morris, W. J. Gemmil and others. A committee with John B. Ilessong. chairman; Mr. Gemmil, secretary, and the following members: Frank Osborn, Frank Walker, James King, Dr. R. C. Light, George Kerr, William Leonard, Claude McElwaine, E. F. Edgecombe. Harrison Walters, George Cruse, J. K. Kite, O. R. Throckmorton, C. I, Aber crombie, Samuel King, Platt Whitehead, F. O. Eaton, Thomas Southern, Mrs. Mattie King, Mrs. Shirley Dean, Mrs. Emma Ehler, and Mrs. Leona Batty, was named. A singular circumstance pointed out by Dr. Light, at last night's meeting is that his son, Dr. Mason B. Light, is one of the committee taking an active part in the effort throqgh court action to pre vent annexation. Other members of the anti-annexationists committee are Dr. G. F. Hessiar, and Fred Reschar. In explaining the family difference over the question which has stirred Broad Ripple, Dr. Light said: “My son Is in this fight against me—l don't know why—and I am ashamed he is against us. There has been something said by some people that there is money involved in this affair, but if there had been such a thing I am quite sure I would have known something about it. I’ve failed to see any money involved. I believe three-fourths of the people oi Broad Ripple favor annexation.” Dr. Light said he had been a resident of Broad Ripple forty-two years and had aeen Indianapolis grow from the time when there was not a single house in Fall Creek bottoms, until the present time, when the whole intervening terri tory is being built up. He said Broad Ripple is in reality a part of Indianapo lis and dependent on the city for its growth and conveniences. Dr. Light said the matter of city street car service was of Bpecial interest to him. One of the points brought out by speak ers was the question of K sewer system which is being held up by Indianapolis pending annexation of Broad Ripple. It was pointed out a trunk sewer system couid uot be obtained by Broad Ripple except by becoming a part of Indianapo lis. Failure of Broad Ripple to bring about any street improvements was con demned by those at the meeting. A petition urging Mayor Shank to sign the annexation ordinance was circulated at the meeting and members of commit tee appointed for the purpose will obtain additional names. Pro-annexationists are scheduled to meet again tonight at Shadd’s Hail while the “antis" are scheduled to have a meet ing at the home of Fred Reschar, 5420 College avenue.

The Marion County Tuberculosis As sociation today made public records of children in six nutritional classes throughout the city, showing tremendous gains in weight for many of tho under weight children. All of the classes ex cept that at the Indianapolis Orphans Home, have now been suspended for tho summer vacation. The nutrition work grew out of the efforts put forth by the local tuberculosis association last fall when it brought Dr. William R. P. Emerson from Boston for a series of nutritional lectures in an effort to bring up the children in the Indianapolis pub lic schools to a weight standard of normal or better. Following I>r. Emerson's course of iec cbild here six experimental classes in chold nutrition were started, in which health habits were developed among the children and proper food given them. Results throughout the year In these classes Indicate definitely thut the un derweight child may bo brought back to normal health and mental capacity through application of simple rules. Officials of the tuberculosis association pointed out that under the guidance of skilled physicians many of the best gains in weight were recorded in the classes. More than 100 children were enrolled dur ing the year In the six classes, many of •hem “graduating" at the end of a few weeks with their weights back Jo normal During the course of the classes many corrections of physical defects were possi ble. among these being thirty-two opera tions to remove tonsils and adenoids. In dianapolis physicians contributed their services in these instances, among them being Dr. J. W. Wright, J>r. E. L. Lingo nan, I)r. John W. Carmack, Dr. W. F. Clevenger and Dr. John F. MeCool. More than one-third of the children OPPOSITION TO JOHNSON SHOWS UP AT MEETING Charles G. Moore Indorsed as Candidate for Seat in Senate. SAN FRANCISCO, June 22.—Aetlye op position to the renomination of Senator Hiram Johnson developed here last night, when, at a mass meeting conducted by prominent Californians, Charles G. Moore, former president of the Pan- American Pacific Exposition, was en dorsed for Johnson's sent. Charges that Johnson had allied him self with the Henrst political interests and had opposed the wishes of California Republicans in fighting the four-power pact and the Washington conference, were made by various speakers. ‘G. O. P. ROAD BODY PASSES ALL RECORDS’ (< ontinned From Page One.) last Democratic Administration, and the Republican platform of this year leaves the way open for this- sort of thing to continue. It is absolutely astounding when we reflect that it is now costing the taxpayers of Indiana more annually to maintain the Stnte highway commis sion than all tlie money collected in an entire year for State purposes under the last Democratic Administration and yet that administration was not only a pro gressive, but also a debt-paying admin istration.” < ITES PROMISE TO REPEAL TAX LAWS. Mr. Ralston cited the Democratic plat form pledge to repeal the Goodrich tax law and write in Us place a statute plac ing a limit on tax levies that can not be exceeded without a majority vote of the community affected, by way of con trast showing the Democratic party has an ear to the desires of the people. “This plank alone ought to guarantee the success of the Democratic party this fall,” he said. "Either that or the peo ple should quit complaining of the ex cessive turdens of government. “Never in my experience in politics has any party proposed for the people to take -back unto themselves such complete control over the vital question of tax ation—a question that lies at the very basis of free government." Indorsement of the records of Senator .Taines E. Watson and Harry S. New as backers of the Administration and in the same Republican Slate platform in dorsement of the candidacy of Albert J. Beveridge for United States Senator were humorously alluded to by Mr. Ralston. “The machine part of the Republican party never loses an opportunity to as sure the public of President Harding's popularity, in Indiana, and certainly I would not charge that our President is unpopular. But, if Mr. Harding is as ropular here as some persons claim he is, liow did it happen that the Republic ans of this State turned Senator New down at the recent primary by a ma jority vote of more than twenty thou sand V Senator New had long bee na faithful party man. He had never turned his back upon his party and had never tried to destroy it. The platform says that he had taken "a leading part’ in the constructive legislation of Con gress, and had ‘given the fullest and most sympathetic cooperation to the executive branch of the Government.’ “WHY DID STATE REPUDIATE NEW?” “If this eulogy be true, and I have no reason to think that it is not, I cannot understand, in view of the fact that the President is said to be so popular in In diana, why Indiana Republicans re pudiated Senator New and nominated over him by distinguished opponent, who was never recognized as a supporter ot the conference called by the President for the limitation of armaments and who has never ‘hailed the treaties agreed upon in INDIANA DAILY TIMES had dental work done during the course of their nutritional development. Chil dren in the class at tho Indianapolis Orphans Homo gained 130 pounds In twenty-three weeks, while the expected gain for that period of time was about fifty ’ ’.unde. The average gain per child In all the classes during the period was eight pounds, while the normal gain would have been 3.9 pounds. Throughout tle classes a rate of gain twice as great as had teen expected was recorded. Sev eral of the children registered unusual gains. Charles Turner of the Orphans j Home gained thirteen pounds in twenty i weeks, when his normal gain would have j been four and one-quarter pounds. Mary j Smith of tho Orphans Home gained I seventeen pounds iu twelve weeks. The I expected gain for a girl of her age tn that length of tirno was two pounds. , Betty Anne I’arrott of the Benjamin Harrison School gained eighteen pounds ■ in twenty-live weeks, when her normal : gain would have been four and three ! quarter pounds.

My opponent is not a ‘Four- Power Pnct'-er, and I have about at ready given up hope of utting him to speak one word for It. This conference and its work are said to be the crowning achievement of tho Harding Administration and Senator New] was sympathetically at tho side of the President in all that he did in connec- ] tlon with tho conference and to make successful all the policies of tha Admin istration. “Now, I have about made tip my mind that President Harding may not be as popular with tho people as some of his enthusiastic friends seem to believe. 1 have been persuaded to this conclusion largely by the defeat of .Senator New and by the nomination for Senator ot Hon. Smith W. Brookhnrt in lowa. Brookhart struck right out from the shoulder In his candidacy. lie did not mince words tn saying what he thought of the party in power. He condemned the President for his position on tho soldiers' bonus question. He did not hesitate to say the President was wrong in being for a ship subsidy, and, in the language of a newspaper correspondent, ’he condemned the Administration foi 1 repealing the excess profits taxes and he threw one verbal fit after another over the seating of Newberry.' And yet he was nominated by more thnn 40 per cent of all the votes cast, over a field of five opponents.” COMPARES CLAIMS OF TWO PARTIES. Claims of Republicans their party has made all the material progress in years were compared with achievements of the Democratic Administration from 1912 to 1920. “Let the facts tell their own story. Tn 1912, when a Democratic Administration was chosen, our national wealth was $187,- 000,000,000, and in 1920, when Its Repub lican successor was chosen, our national wealth was $330,000,000,000. In 1012, our national income was $33,000,000,000. and In 1020, it was $70,000,000.1)00. In 1012, our foreign trade was $3,830,000,000 and in 1920, it was $13,500,000,000. In 1912, tlie value of farm production was $9,009,000,- 000, and in 1920, It was $20,000,000,000. In 1912, agricultural exports were $1,050,000,- 000, and in 1920, they were near $4,000,- 000,000. A year after the war, the value of manufactured goods, exported in one month, equalled the amount exported in an entire yenr under Taft’s Administra tion. I challenge Republicans to match this record, in any period of eight years In our Nation’s history; and yet the peo ple voted a change, but some have been swearing and others praying, ever since." The Republican policy at Washington is hurtful to both the farmer and the wage earner, he declared. The tariff bill which is being condemned even by some of the “rock-ribbed high tariff or gans” as “too much to ask the people | to endure," was cited as au example of what is going on. Krebs to Address Optimists’ Luncheon Dr. Stanley L. Krebs of Chicago will address the members of the Optimist Club at their luncheon Friday noon.

WASHINGTON, June 22.—Mr. Motor ist might as well get used to the idea of sky-high pdices for his gasoline. Prices will contlnuo to soar higher and higher each year, until they hit the half-dollar mark. There they will stick. That’s the burden of the message which the oil men have gathered in Washing ton to tell the La Follette Senate com mittee. The committee wants to know about the abrupt 4-cent Jump in the price of “gas” all over he country at a time when the gasoline surplus is grenter than ever before, or more than a billion gal lons. “Gasoline is bearing the burden of ex pense in oil refining,” the oil men say. “There’s no market for other oil by products. Hence, the gasoline user must pay the 4 cents extra to make up for losses in fuel oil and other products.” That isn’t all they say. As petroleum resources dwindle each year, they add gasoline must come from shale. That's a more costly process, but it offers an unlimited supply of “gas” for genera tions to come. To tap this supply,Mr. Motorist and Mr. Tractor-farmer have got to pay the price, pfrobably 50 cents a gallon or thereabouts. That's what's coming during the next decade or so, oil men say. "The great trouble with the gasoline business is that the public got used to paying prices that were below cost of production,” J. D. Reynolds, represent ing Western refiners, declared here. The La Follette Senate committee Is not disposed to accept these explana tions from the oil men at face value. Members of the committee remembering when “gas” cost but 10 cents a gallon, want to know why—now that the de mand for gasoline has leaped to un precedented bounds—"gas” has Jumped in price to three times its original price, with assurances from the oil trade that It is going still higher. m CONGRESS AIDS IN SETTLMEENT OF WAR CLAIMS Harding Is Pledged to Early Adjudication of Minor Matters.

Congress awaited further word from the White House on the Administration's future polley toward claims amounting to millions of dollars. Action on Senate resolutions authoris ing a probe into the alien property cus todian's office and directing on immedi ate settlement of all war claims was held in abeyance pending the executive's next word. it was predicted freely the Adminis j motion's plan would not only settle i claims against this Government but j would provide a method of payment for I claims held by Americans against Ger- I many.
