(Special Despatch to The Reformer.) Copyright 1!)22. " WASHINGTON, June Jl President Harding's readiness to agree to a post ponement of action by the house of rep resentatives on the ship subsidy bill is an affirmative step induced by considera tions of strategy which he believes will insure the passage of the bill at this ses sion ot congress. Mr. IJurding will communicate his views to the house leaders within a day or two. In brief, Mr. Harding is not trying to dictate the exact day and hour when the subsidy bill should be passed and is willing to deter to the judgment of house leaders on this point so long as he gets the legislation through before the present session of congress adjourns. Having made the threat that he will call congress into extra session if an ad journment is taken without passing the subsidy bill, Mr. Harding found himself confronted with the alternative ot forc ing the measure through now while the house is in a disapixiinted mood v-r hving,leen compelled to stay here again.-t its will, or waiting till members have had n little vacation and gotten an opportunity to "mend their political fences" back home. Will Uet Ketter Kill The President could have forced ac tion this week but it would have been at the expense of an emasculated bill. ?dr. Harding is shoeing shrewd signs of generalship in catering to the wishes f the house leaders at this time so that when the members get back in six or seven weeks they will have no excuse for further delay. The truth is that Mr. Harding was persiiadi-d to yield to The plan of post ponement largely because of the argu ment made ti him by members of the rules committee that they hadn't had sufficient time to study the subject. Mr. Harding learned, for instance, that the record of the hearings before the mer chant marine committee had not been assembled and bound so that the mat ter could be thoroughly digested. Sev eral leaders said they thought members would feel better about it after they had had a chance to canvass public senti ment, in their communities. As matters stand now Mr. Harding will lose nothing by keeping on friendly terms with the house membership. ' lie will , get a better bill passed six weeks from now than he could get this week. I'ven if the subsidy bill were" to ' be passed by the bouse within the next few lays as Mr. Harding originally thought would Ih the case the measure would have to lie over for another month or two until the senate finished work on the tariff-bill. The New Plan I'nder the new plan to which Mr. Harding has agreed the house will recess three days at a time under a gentleman's agreement between the leaders of both parties to the effect that no party mat ters will come up for consideration while the memlx-rs take a vacation. Then when the tariff bill is ready the house will be enlled back and the meas ure sent to conference in a few days. While the taritl bill is in conference the house will act on the ship subsidj bill and the senate will take up the bonus. The senate may, of course, be discussing The subsidy measure while the house is doing the same thing but the President is of th opinion that congress-ought to and will place a ship subsidy law on the books lx-fore the au tumn elections. Instead of imagining in the bill an unpopular move, many of the President's supporters believe it will add to I'publican prestige at the polls as it will be presented as the outstanding achievement of a constructive character of the first two years of the Harding administration.

The great American beefsteak and the succulent roast leef are oil their way back to the menu of the ordinary citizen, according to a report made public today by the National Institute of Progressive Farm ing. The reason is simple, according to tuy II. Hall, director of the institute. It is that with the deflation of the grain market it has again lecoine profitable to market feed grains via the beef market. ur survey of the Iwef situation, which has been on for a month, covered the four leading purebreed cattle associ ations, namely, the Hereford, Aberdeen Angus, Shot thorn and Galloway, the leading livestock markets and some 17, (HH) farm implement dealers," said Mr. Hall. "The investigation," continued Mr. Hall, ''shows a marked increase in the sale of bulls to farmers and range cat tle growers. This means increased herds. All reports agree 0:1 that. Herds were terribly depleted during ' the deflation perioil and there is still a shortage, but the movement back to normal is now in full swing. As production increases so will consumption, and the rehabilitation of all industry will be that much ad vanced. - "It is not an exaggeration to state that optimism has returned to the farm er, lie sees a sure profit in tins sea son's work and he is buying tractors and farm implements and using them, i.jiir hog survey, recently made public, indicated that; tb beef survey con firms it and our sheep survey, now in progress, will clinch it. I am sure. "The survey indicates a profitable market for beef for at least Ps months longer, and with holiest retailing of meats, the American working man should have his beef on the table at least once a day, as of yore. It will not be tlue growers fault if he cannot afford it. England has grown to greatness on beef; so has the I'nitcd .States. The return of the steak and the roast to the table is of international importance.'.' in the summer for action on the ship subsidy bill lie in getting a more dis pa.'isionatc view later on the question of celling liipior on board American ships than is possible at the present time. It is expected that facts and figures will be marshaled lirt to prove that Ameri can ships will be at a serious disadvan tage if the sale of liquor is prohibited, on bnacd American-' vessels whilei those un der foreign" Hags are unmolested and second that treaties wrill prevent the ap plication of American law to foreign vessels as contemplated in pending bills which seek to prevent all ships entering American ports from selling intoxicants n journeys to and from the I'nited States. The President has yielded an inch to gain a mile. He is more confident to day tl an he ever has In-en of the ulti mate passage by Indh houses of his fa vorite measure creating a permanent American merchant marine out of the war fleet. VERMONT NEWS.

Fight the Mosquito. Mosquitoes must have water in which to breed and maintain themselves on the earth. In general, they deposit their eggs on the water, though some are placed upon the sides of receptacles just above the water. The eommonhouse mos quito breeds in almost any water it can find near the household small brooks, pools, rain-barrels, cistcrits tin cans, and even in bottles containing water. The best way to prevent mosquitoes is to destroy their breeding places. (Jet rid of old tin cans, drain ionds, cover rain barrels, and cisterns with netting. Treat streams and ponds that cannot be drained with kerosene oil once every two weeks and stock those ponds and garden-pools with goldfish or, better,, the top minnow ((Jambusia). The itching and irritation caused by a mosquito "bite" may Ih relieved by a di luted solution of ammonia, a five per cent solution of carbolic r.eid (poisonous if taken internally), or a one per cent lotion of menthol.-! rom the June I)e lineator.

Walter Cot a, one of the pupils, was drivinc and the machine is said to have been going at a high rate of seed when, in attempting to make a corner, he turned too quickly and the car went over. It was going at such speed that it rolled over twice be fore it brought up against a telephone pole. Most of the children were spilled out and were not injured beyond a se vere shaken up. Cot a is renorted to have received a broken collar bone, Miss Bombard sustained injuries to her back and Zaida La Tourneau was injured in one leg by a cut several inches in length. The automobile is almost a complete wreck, the top, windshield, radiator, one wheel and other parts are smashed.
