Street fighting which lias been in prog ress since yesterday became particularly violent after lo'clock today, the dinner hour at tK factories in the side street radiating from Duncairn Gardens and North Queens street.

NEW YORK, Aug. 30. A survey of the unemployment situation in New York yesterday showed ."OO.OOO out of work and brought portent of distress unparalleled in the city's history this winter, with an attendant crime wave of growing propor tions unless relief develops. The survey was prompted by the an nouncement of President Harding's call for a conference on- unemployment and it revealed conditions far more serious than the casual had supposed. It showed that men out of work are sleeping everywhere in the ojwn now. Thousands have no shel ter and have been introduced to the gnaw ing agony of hunger. Every park, every pier, the alleys and open lots have their quota to the homeless nightly in growing numbers. They huddle together in great rows, finding the sky a sufficient roof now, while mild weather continues; but relief workers shudder at the thought of what is to become of these men when the nights become cold. The" bread lines in the Howery are lengthening and these furnish the only food some of the victims of the present situation are able to find. Men in touch with the situation say they are frankly worried by its possibilities-, and they ascribe the growth of the crime wave largely to the influence of un employment and say it would be hard to tell what would happen when desperate meu became even more hungry than they are notv.

CIIARLKTOX. W. Va., Aug. 30. Last night was one of uncertainty as to what was happening along the l;a!i Doone county line. Early today it was much the same. Latest reports were a repetition of yesterday, no more assur ing, no less alarming. Adjutant General Charnock was back in the capital after a hurried trip through the district Sunday night and yesterday. The word picture he painted of the situation in a formal statement last night was so alarming that Gover nor P. Morgan sent a midnight appeal to President Harding requesting immed iate aid. In his request addressed to the chief executive ami Secretary of War Weeks the governor quoted tiie adjutant general as reporting that dur ing the trip he commanded armed bands to disperse, but that they refused to do so and continued to maintain patrols on the road along the boundary line of the two counties. The startling report of A. C. Porter, mine workers' executive, to C. S. Keo- ney, president of district 1., dated Mine Workers of America said all males lrom the ages ot 14 to 00 un der arms, women and children tleeiug in panic over the line into Boone county, armed patrols arriving and de parting and every available conveyance tarrying supplies to the picket posts in the hills, the Sharples-Plair sector may well be compared with lielgiuui in the earlv days of tha Worl.l war.''

Paulsen, lecturer on child life, in her lee-! ture on Mother Goose and Your Town, j before the fifth Chautauqua audience last evening, and her Hearers were enthusi astic over her message and the way in which it was presented. Mrs. Paulsen spoke of fatherhood and community and referred to Judge Ben Lindsey as the greatest community father, adding that there should be a community father or mother in every community. She called attention to the fact that children form their ha'jit.s in the first three years of life and that it is a mistake to allow a child to do as it choses until seven or eight years old and then begin the train-, ing process. The training should begin,1 she said, as soon as the child liogins to eat. which is the second day. i The speaker said she did not believe in corjioral punishment and that whipping i.- a negative form of breaking a bad habit. Never punish a child, she said, mi-, less you are sure you know what you are punishing him for and unless you are sure tlie child Knows wuar me punisn mcnt is for. In presenting the different phases in the child's life she used miniature fig ures representing Mother Goose char acters. She told many ways in which the parents lose the companionship their children, the largest per cent the parents losing the companionship of the child, before he is fotir years old. She admonished the parents to answer the questions of their children when they ire asked ana ociore iney nave an op to seek the information iroin someone who may give an answer wmcu will tend to corrupt the young minis. She also advised the children be taught the laws in order that they might know what acts would break the law.
