Smile Fades From Housewives; Story of $7 Maid Not True NEW YORK, Jan. 6. New York ers read in the newspapers a dis patch from Chicago quoting the statement of a Travelers' Aid soci ety worker there that thousands of European girls were flocking to America eager for housework and that "the day of the $7 a week serv ant girl soon would return." Today the society's New York headquar ters was besieged by an army of housewives seeking "one of the $7 wonders," and long distance tele phone calls poured in from neigh boring states asking that one of the "old fashioned immigrants" be sav ed. But it's all wrong, according to New York headquarters. Thousands of girls are arriving each month but instead of seeking domestic service they are landing armed with enough funds to carry them comfortably to relatives Socat I ed as far away as the Pacific coast. Less than one per cent are seeking household jobs, it was said. ALLIES WILL BLOW UP GERMAN SHIPS SUNK BYOFFICERS Decision Disposes of Question That Has Caused Trouble For Months LONDON, Jan. 6 German .warships sunk b y-thou- off icers-m Scapa Flow will be blown up shortly, it was stated here today. The decision to dispose of the ves sels in this way followed the com pletion of investigation by a spe cial commission representing all of the allies. The decision, announced in the foregoing dispatch, to blow up the C4erman ships sunk in Scapa Flow apparently disposes of a question which has caused a great deal of discussion in all of the al lied countries. The almost insu perable task of raising the vessels and the possibility that the sal vaged materials would not be of great value were believed to have weighed heavily in favor of de stroying the vessels by explosives. oo National Grange For Anti-Strike Clause WASHINGTON, Jan.

It was announced that so far as heard from the results of the referendum were unanimously in fa vor of retaining the anti-strike clause. The committee also will present the views of the grange on the packer leg islation to Chairman Gronna, of the senate agriculture committee. Those views are expressed In, a tentative bill prepared for presentation to the senate. It provides for Strong govern ment control of the packers to be ad ministered by a national food commis sion, nr Germans Ask For a Reduction of Troops PARIS, Jan. 6. An application from the German representatives here for a reduction in the number of troops to be 'sent to the areas in which plebis cites are to be taken under the peace treaty, has been received by the su preme council, Gormany will have to bear the expense of maintaining iheso troops and her representatives com plain that the cost will be excessive. So heavy an expenditure is not neces sary, it is asserted. The council, it is lenrned, will re ply that, inasmuch as the United States has not supplied its quota of troops, which was to constitute a quar ter of the whole, the number of men will comprise only three-quarters of the total originally fixed.

There are still a considerable num ber of the less extreme communists awaiting execution in Budapest, the commission reported. At this morning's session of the council the questions remaining to be decided to complete the Hungarian peace treaty were taken under consid eration. Tho Hungarian delegates probably will receive tho full text of the treaty Monday or Tuesday next. The precise date for the conference of the powers on the Turkish question remains uncertain. Ambassador Wal lace has thus far received no instruc tions regarding participation of the Uinted States in the conference. TURKISH DATA READY. CONSTANTINOPLE, Thursday, Jan. 1. Members of the commission pro paring data on the Turkish viewpoint relative to peace, have completed their work, in addition to territorial mat ters, the commission has formulated a dotailed outline of projected legal and administrative reforms which offer substitute for capitulations which would deprive Turkey of possible de velopments economically and which would interfere with sovereignty and legal matters. Much attention i being given the problem of Christian minorities as a part of the peace problem by the Turkish press, which suggests the ad dition of enough territory to Armenia to permit the Armenians to segregate refugees of this race. Some urge that Armenians bo given Turkish citizen ship, but say Armenians refusing to adopt Turkish citizenship and remain ing in Turkey should have the status of foreigners. Exchange of Smyrna for Macedonia which was proposed just before the war and accepted in principal by Pre mier Venizelos of Greece, is pro posed. WILSON TO ISSUE CALL. WASHINGTON, Jan. G. President Wilson will "no doubt" issue tho call for the first meeting of the league of nations under the peace treaty when the treaty is actually in effect through tho exchange of ratifications of three of the allied powers and Germany, Un Jder Secretary of State Polk said to day. "I think there is hardly a doubt that iho president will issue the call," Mr. Polk said, "in view of tho fact that ho is especially charged with this duty by the treaty and it has nothing to do with ratification by the United States." Mr. Polk added that he had so ad vised Premier Clemenceu and the oth er entente premiers while he was in Paris as head of the American peace mission when they asked whether the president would Issuo the call.
