Will Summon Congress to Deal
With the Tariff.
Chairman Fordney of House Commit
tee Informs President-Elect of
Progress Made on Measure-
Ten Amendments Tacked On.
Washington, Jan. 18. —Congress will
be called into special session April 4.
according to information given mem
bers of the house ways and means
committee by Chairman Fordney on his
return from Marion, where he con
ferred with President-elect Harding.
Mr. Fordney discussed with the
President-elect general taxation and
tariff questions, wMch will be among
the more important subjects to come
before the special session of the new
The chairman was understood to
have told Mr. Harding the date of the
session had a direct bearing on the
tariff revision hearings, which the com
mittee is now conducting, and it was
said that Mr. Harding informed him
that April 4 practically had been de
cided upon.
Tariff Bill Reported.
Carrying amendments which many
proponents believed spell 'its doom in
the senate, the Fordney emergency tar
iff bill was reported out by the sen
ate finance committee.
Supported by argicultural interests
during the week of hearings on the
bill, as affording vital protection to
farm products, the measure on the
other hand was strongly attacked by
others as an instrument for maintain
ing abnormal price levels.
Ten amendments, broadening the
measure to include practically all farm
products, instead of the limited num
ber approved by the house, had been
added to the bill by the committee and
opponents had served notice that an
attempt would be made to load on more
when the measure reached the senate
Foes Continue Fight.
Several senators who opposed the
bill in committee were understood to be
prepared to repeat their attempt, un
successful in committee, to add such
extraneous legislation as the bill to re
codify the federal laws and the sol
diers’ bonus bill. The determined and
apparently growing opposition to the
measure in the senate promised a long
struggle with hours of debate before
final action.

clear sweet tenor, the other bari
tone, and their duets are a joy to

Quartz Utensils instead of Platinum.
Platinum has been the only metal
which has been heretofore available
for use to withstand intense heat, but
quartz is now successfully made use
of in this capacity. To make these
utensils the raw material is melted
in the electric furnace, at a tempera
turn exceeding 2,000 degrees Fahren
heit, under a pressure of 500 pounds
to the square inch.
One peculiarity of these vessels is
that when white-hot they can be
thrown into cold water without break
ing them. It is said that if a window
of this kind of glass were inserted in
a fire-proof steel safe and the latter
exposed to the fiercest flames, the
safe would suffer more than the win
