J CHICAGO, Jan. 6. Republicans
M from 14 middle western states con-
i' tinued today their work of moulding
I Pprty issues and laying plans for the
participation of Republican women in
the 1920 presidential campaign.
Demands of women for equal repre

"a r lually confirmed with the statement
Son! ' ' of Will H. Hays, chairman of the-Re-
Jm ' publican national committee, that "the
M ' Republican party offers the women
9 everything we offer the men."
uiiSEp Plans for the national convention

.hM I Governor Frank O. Lowden of Illi-
X$M I 11015 urged women to aid in bringing
. about a more healthy industiial situa-

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.
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.
National Grange For
Anti-Strike Clause
WASHINGTON, Jan. C Results of
the recent referendum in the national

the Cummins' railroad bill will be pre
sented to Chairman Cummins of the
senate interstate commerce commit
tee tomorrow by the grange's execu
tive committee which began sessions
here today. 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.

Moderate Communists
Commission Gathers Data
Relative To Peace With the
Turkish Empire
PARIS, Jan. 6. There Is now every
indication in supreme council circles
that the peace protocol will be signed
by Germany and ratifications of the
treaty of Versailles exchanged on the
coming Saturday, January 10, the date
tentatively set by the council yester
day. The council ol the league of nations,
it is understood, will be called to meet
about a week later.
The inter-alled military commission
at Budapest, was authorized by the su
preme council today to intervene in
favor of some of the more moderate
communists who have been condemned
to death by the authorities in the Hun
garian capital. Authority to intervene,
to"thTSeiid Tiad"been requested by the
Awaiting Execution.
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.
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.

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.

PARIS, Jan. 6. Strange and

constitutionality of provisions of the
Volstead act prohibiting tho manufac

preparations for tho prosecution of all '
persons who have sold beer since tho
passage of the act last October 2S.
Cases against those who manufac

Officials also explained that
