Mrs. Volney W. Taylor has been
appointed chairman of the 1930 Bet
ter Homes in America campaign in
Brownsville. The Campaign is sche
duled to begin in April.
The object of the campaign is to
promote more attractive and com
fortable homes by demonstration
and education. Dr. Ray Lyman Wil
, bur, cabinet official, is president of
the association, and Herbert Hoover
and Miss Grace Abbott are on the
' board of directors.
"The thousands of local Better
I Homes committees,” says Dr. Wil
bur, command the best information
and aid that various national or
ganizations and government bureaus
can furnish. By practical local de- j
monstrations, :hey reach not onlv
families who are meeting problems
for the first time, but others who are
striving to improve their home en
! vironment and to bring up healthy
; happy children well fitted to carry
in the tasks that lie ahead in our
national life/*
Plans for the local campaign have
not yet been mapped ou. but are to
be announced at an early date, Mrs
Taylor says.

Terming himself a "fugitive from
injustice,” Dr. Syngman Khee,
president of the provisional Ko
rean government, in 1919, ad
mitted his identity to reporters
who discovered him in Los An
geles as he was boarding a steam
er for Hawaii. He disappeared
when a price was set on his head
after his government fell. Dr.
Rhee expects the "Dong-Ji” move
ment, which he heads, to succeed
ultimately and he then plans to
resume the presidency.,
Reps. Box and Johnson Have
Ideas for Restriction
Of Quota
By Harry L. Sexton
bills designed to restrict immigra
tion from Mexico and other Latin
American countries have been in
troduced in the house, one by Rep
Johnson of Washington, chairman
of the house committee on im
migration and naturalization, and
the other by Representative Box
of Texas, ranking minority mem
ber of the committee.
The Johnson bill proposes to set
up a quota system under which for
every American citizen who emi
grates to reside permanently in
another country of the Western
hemisphere, three immigrants from
that country would be admitted to
the United States.
The Box bill proposes that all
countries on the Western hemi
sphere be placed under a quota not
to exceed 3 per cent of the average
number of immigrants legally ad
mitted annually from each of rald
areas during the five fiscal year.,
next preceding Jttiy 1 1929. and
limits ‘he total number annually
from all countries to 50,000. Pro
visions are made to make the re
strictions less onerous on the car.e
of English-speaking citizens o:
“I am presenting a bill.” said
Mr. Johnson in a written state
ment, "which embodies what I be
lieve to be the fir really sound,
understandable, workable plan un

be applied uniformly, fairly, and

In a statement on his bill. Mr.
Box said:
"The bill I am Introducing, if en
