North Ia- a:n i. oteu into tho t:tt,l uy by the senate agriculture corn- By PETER P. CARNEY Xhat conservation should be' taught M all of our schools and. that the Rot ary and Kiwanis clubs should set aside one day each year to study con servation were two of the thoughts ex pressed by CoLonel John H. Wallace, Jr commissioner of fish and game for the etate' of ; Alabama, in his'talk on The Future of National Conserva tlqn" before thie Beventh annual con ference of the American Game Pro tective ' association recently held in New York. - Conservation is something) every one in Alabama knows about because it is something the children hear about in the schools In that state. Colonel Wfeiillac has pfrepared a number of books oh conservation, ' treating the subject broadly, and. these books have been distributed to the school chil dren by the reachers. What Alabama has done and la doing, Colonel Wal lace believes can be done in every state in the Union. - The California State Fish' and Game association is sues a bulletin to school teachers, and the ' information on these bulletins is imparted to the . school children. But in no other state is the conserva tion of our resources brought home to the younger folk the man and woman of tomorrow. It may be necessary to interest the board of education in conservation of our forests, fish and game, and if it s then we snouid go it at once for every echoOi child should' know just what conservation means. To have our laws obeyed is a matter of edu cation and there is no better time to start this than when the boys and girls are at school. The . Rotary and - Kiwanis clubs are great powers in their communities and their doings are chronicled in the local press. Colonel Wallace is of the opinion that if these organizations took up the matter of conservation in everything the world Implies, it would be a liberal education for hundreds of thousands of persons and that it would be much easier to have better laws passed, or have laws protecting fish' and game that are now on the books better observed, if the business men were interested in this subject. As Colonel Wallace said unless conservation is practiced one of these days we will have no trees, and when the trees go .the game will disappear, and the streams will dry up, and when the streams dry up there will be "no fish so the time to start conservation is right now, . Some people .will tell you that - the .Ihings Colonel Wallace talks about wllF'neygr come to pass, but maybe you- rememher talking to some people who said the 18th amend ment would never see the light of day. Begin right now. There should be a secretary of con servation in the president's cabinet. There is a bill in the house of repre sentatives now , providing for such a place. This bill provides that all the divisions of garni and fish and for estry protection be taken from the departments they are now - in and placed under a secretary of conserva tion. This bill should be passed. Con servation of our national resources is the greatest thing before us today. Every sportsman and every sports man's club Bhould do all within their power to see that this bill goes through and then that the president acts.- HARDING QUITS HIS HOUSEBOAT (By Associated Press) DAYTONA, Fla., Feb. 8.

SWEDISH BALLET HORRIFIES LONDON Audience Streams Out in Silence After Realistic Presentment of Borlin's ''Madhouse". Y By MARGARET WALTER , LONDON, Feb. 8. There's no good in telling people how cruel and stupid and ugly they are unless .you. have a way of saying things that Jhakes them tolerable even when they are unpleas ant. Also, if you want people to stand you when you are .unkind and brutal you have to be ravishingly lovely to look at. " ; The Swedish dancers made two mis takes in pluttlng . on M. Jean Borlin's "Madhouse" in. London the other eve ping. In the first place they are not pretty to look at. And they haven't the way of doing things that the Rus rians have. People flocked to the first performance in spite of the name be cause the Russian- ballet taught Lon don to. believe that whatever a ballet does is beautiful, anything expressed choreographlcally diverting, that you have Aothing to do but Just sit still and enjoy yourself to the full and rest your brain. "The Madhouse" reverses this idea completely. First it revolts against little stage superstitions such as the unluckiness of opening broken um brellas and allowing performers to step jicro88 a grave. Little things like that ttart an audience off wrong. The musid further irritated." Ifthe women had Been beautiful all might still have gone well. But Swedish women have thick ankles, just as most of us have, high cheek bones as we, wispy hair that strag gles round their faces on the slight est provocation and their heads are too large for artistic posing. The men are fine specimens, but they are broad hipped and self conscious compared with the Russians, they dance as if they were plowing, so many up, so many down and turn again. . The same ingenuousness ! which makes their country dances. and their national fetes so refreshing to sophist icated people terrifies and bewilders when with stolid and unflinching force it meets madness and crazy passion and death itself. ' . 'The Madhouse" is the story of the chance invasion of a lunatic asylum by a little girl on her way home from her first communion in white dress and veil. The mad house represents the world, the inmates are everyday types, our selves the pjoet, the musician, the vain woman, the widow, her compan ion, the bully and so on. Tne wnite clad first communion girl stands for innocence. There is no place for her in the world's madhouse. , She tries to join the crazy gang, is terrified by their gestures, then repels the luna tics by hr coldness, her aloofness, They crowd away from her. She sinks down by a mossy grave and is found weepdng by the prince, a cardboard prince, who first makes love to her and then strangles her,, "to prove his own power to ; himself is he not a prince?" All this to strident discords, to cat calls and ear splitting whistles, and ominous muffled drumming. Nothing could exceed the gloom of the performance .nothing could be fur ther from grace than the crazy cavort ing of the lunatics, each one of whom is too near i to being real life to be pleasant to look at, each one of whom is ugly in the way we are all ugly when we are at our worst There is no happy ending, no re lief, not even a question. The clamor just stops on a shrill falsetto. Inno cence lies huddled grotesquely after her blind and stupldj protestations, her cheap finery draggled, her pasty face stark. The cardboard prince stalks off proud of his deed, the others slink away, each intent upon his own mad ness. A hideous writhing giant paint ed on the. black cloth seems to smile a green and slimy smile as the cur tain drops. The audience applauded politely, (the courtesy of London audiences is proverbial) and then absent-mindedly the people streamed out into the dark leaving the second half of the per formance to empty seats. There were no hisses, no protests, just the bored expression of life-weary men and women, 'fed up'. 4 ' rink it for health and for pleasure too cikere is two "Ibid XJ R IU4jU.--i 111 IHSTAHT'O O F0ST0M .

Inter- 1 f (By Associated Press) ' NEW ORLEANS. Feb. 8. WHth ap parently i no precedent to guide him, Attorney General'A. V. Coco is to night trying to " determine the leeal status of Lonnie Eaton, negro, of Mon roe, La., tne date of whose "execution on Feb. 4 for-the murder of a white man was completely forgotten by Sheriff T. A..Gant of Ouochita parish. The forgetfulness of the sheriff, who became so engrossed in other matters that he entirely -overlooked the sched uled hanging of the negro has raised one of the most interesting legal ques tions ever met with in this state, ac cording to. legal authorities, whose opinions in regard to the negro's stat us widely differ. . . . The attorney general frankly ad mits that he does not know what the negro's status is whether he is al ready legally dead in the eyes of the law and should go; free by reason of having his life once placed in jeop ardy with the setting of the date of his execution by the governor or whether the man must yet be execut ed In expiation for his crime. , He states, however, that he will thorough ly examine all cases in the records which may have a bearing on the mat ter before rendering a decision. Another complication in the case is the fact that an application for a commutation of the sentence to life imprisonment is now ptending before the board of pardons.

Regret that the American government saw fit to apologize to the Berlin government for the attempt of Americans to cap ture Grover C. Bergdoll, wealthy American draft evader, was expressed in a resolution adopted today by the executive committee of the American Legion in session here. The resolution, offered by Thomas W. Miller of Delaware, and ordered sent to members of congress, approved the proposed congressional investiga tion of the- circumstances surround ing Bergdoll's escape from custody. Efforts-to put the legion on record as opposing the non-partisan league were made by members from Okla homa and other states where the league is active, but after consider able debate . various resolutions were voted down and tabled. The commit tee then voted unanimously to uphold F. A. Galbralth, national commander, on his stand in advising state com manders of Kansas, Nebraska and Ok lahoma. that the legion itself should take no active part against the league as an organization. Correspondence with respect to the non-partisan league question, which began with an appeal from the Sa Una, Kan., post for support from the national committee in a fight against the league, was read. Other appeals had followed from western and southwestern posts, and all were shown to have been given the same answer by the commander. Speakers urging the legion to go onj record opposing tho league declared that its leaders were disloyal and were using the league to cloak seditious ac tivitles. Opponents contended that such action would be considered by many farmers and other members of the league, who themselves were loyal, as indicating opposition of the legion to the economic and political policies Of the league. All speakers agreed that the legion should not oppose the league's status as a political party. Announcement was made, at today's meeting that efforts would be made to have the Knights of Columbus re move certain conditions from their of fer to the legion of $5,000,000 for con struction of a war memorial in Wash lngton.
