Physicians and noted men from all parts of the United States met here yesterday Lr a week's conference to plan a nation wide campaign against the "Great Red Plague," a phrase invented by the Unit ed States public health service' to stand for two social diseases. The conference was called by Dr. Hugh Cumings, surgeon general of the United States. Practically certain cures now have been discovered and proved by medical science for the two most common social diseases, according to officials of the health service.

How to get the facts across con vincingly will be one of the problems to be discussed by the conference. General Pershing is one of many not d men who have accepted invitations to attend.

MAKING GOOD PROGRESS AT ROBERTS-REGAN MINE Dixon brothers, who have a lease on the Roberts-Regan (South West Corn stock Mining company) property, are making good progress in their sinking. Despite timlering and necessary sur face repairs the boys are averaging ten feet per week. At this rate they will be to the first drift level within a few weeks, when they will start a drift to ward the west, where the ledge seems to make the best values and the vein is the heaviest. As they began work from the 200-foot level, by the time they start the drift the property will lie one of the deepest in this section!.

United Press i j j ' staff correspondent. NEW YORK, Dec. 7. Young blood holds the scepter of the athletic and sport world. Youngsters have come so completely in power that, outside of baseball, an athlete is considered on the back slide when he rounds the twenty-eighth mile stone of his course. Like with all rules, however, the ex ceptions to this rule are more interest ing than its proofs. Age battled with youth more evenly in the Olympic games than in any oth er contest of recent years. Take Albert Hill, for instance, the British runner who was one of the two athletes to win two events. Hill is 35 years of age and retired from athletics before the war, yet he came back and won the 800 and 1,500 metre runs. Hodge, the British cross-country run ner, is amother notable come-back. He is 32 years of age and had been out of a track suit for five years. Yet he out ran a field of young blood and won the 3,000 metre steeplechase. Philip Baker, another 30 year old Englishman, was second in the high jump and beat Dick Landon in the dual meet between the American and Eng lish teams in London after the Olympic games. The three New York police whales erans witnstanuing tne rusn oi time. The Finns had Jonnie Myraa, a 34 year old giant, who threw the javelin for a world's record. Among our boxing celebrities is the veteran Jack Britton, welterweight champion, who clings to the title al though he is 35 years of age. Johnny Kilbane, gray-haired at 32, is still the feather weight champion Baseball lists veterans galore who are still active, although "well up in years," as Dode Paskert, 39; Gavvy Cravath, 38; Jake Daubert, 35; Ed Konetchy, 35; Ivy Olson, 35; Larry Doyle, 34; Art Fletcher, 34; Ty Cobb, 34; Eddie Collins, 33; Ping Bodie, 33, and Ainsmith, 33. the premier will arrange a meeting. A home' rule bill last night passed the committee stage in the house of lords, when it was voted to eliminate the clause under which Ireland would be governed as a crown colony in case of an insufficient number of Irish legisla tors refused to take the oath of allegiance. sult of the Howard street vice gang case and the shooting of the three offi cers in Santa Rosa Sunday call for this measure. Crime is increasing in proportion to the number of criminals paroled or placed on probation, Mor rill said. INTERESTING PROGRAM AT P. T. MEETING An unusual program is to be offered at the Parents' and Teachers' meeting tomoorow evening at the high school auditorium. Instead of the regular af ternoon session the meeting will take place in the evening. The business meeting will be held at 7:30, to be fol lowed by a talk and lantern slides by Mr. Cox. This gentleman spent several years in China and collected a large number of very interesting photographs and slides. These will be shown those who attend. It will undoubtedly make one of the most interesting evenings given by the association in some time and will be well worth attending. OO TO APPRECIATORS OF SNOW The home people are quite aware that it is snowing again, as the inconven iences incidental with next summer's water supply is quite apparent. However, in case those who take the Appeal outside of this non-citrus belt, wish to keep posted on just what the weather is doinp, it can be stated that there is more snow falling today, with a low barometer to help gladden their spirits. It is always edifying when one is out of the snow belt to know that one's old neighbors are working blisters on their hands shoveling snow. oo Taking Time by the Forelock The V. and T. passenger engine has been equipped with a snow plow. The engine was wheeled out yesterday, fal lowing recent repairs and the snow plow was added equipment. There is nothing like taking time by the fore lock if O'te can ;t st hang on.
