Noted Connecticut Suffra
gist Will Make Suggestion
For Prison Reform.
Mrs. M, Toscan Bennett of Hart
ford, who is to be the prin
cipal speaker at the meeting of
the National Woman's party in the
Stratfjeld hotol ixarlor, Wednesday,
April 2, at 3 p. m., iq a member of
the National Advisory Council of that
organization. Mrs. Bennett has re
cently been released from jail in
Washington, where she was sent for
participating" in a suffrage demonstra
tion at which a speech, of president
Wilson's was burned. Mrs. Bennett
will bo remembered by Bridgeport
people, as she is well acquainted here
through her connection with the Con"
hecticut Woman Suffrag-e Association,
for which she acted as state treasurer
for five years. She resigned In 1917
to take part In the more aggressive
campaign for the Federal Suffrage
Amendment with the so-called "mili
t an f ' grou p, know n as th e Woman's
Party, Mrs. Bennett is an excellent
speaker and gives a very vivid ac
count of the "militant" campaign, and
of her experiences in Jail.
Mrs. Georse 11. Day, the mother of
Mrs. Bennett, will preside at the;
me o tin??. Mrs. Day was one of the
first members of the National Wom
an's Party in this state, and has
given a great deal of time to furth-
ring tho campaign in Connecticut ;
under the direction of that party.
Mrs. Thomas N. Hepburn, chair
man of the Connecticut Branch of
the Woman's Party, and the former
president of the Connecticut Woman
Suffrage Association, will also speak j
at this meeting. Her subject will be;
"Democracy and Women.' Mrs. ;
Hepburn participated In several suf- j
fra?re debates In this city durine- herj
term as president of the Connecticut!
Suffrage Association. Mrs. Hepburn ;
resigned her office as president of;
the state group when the admintstra- j
tion began sending women to jail fori
persisting in asking that democracy ;
be enforced in this country and the ;
women of America be given a voice j
in their own government.
The public is invited to attend. A j
special invitation is extended to those j
interested in prison reform to come j
and hear Mrs. Bennett.
Will Government
Makes Arrests Here
for Booze Violations?
Whether the government authori
ses will invade this city to make ar
rests for violations of the liquor law
Dfter July 1 was a question asked
of the county commissioners today.
They said they had not yet given any
consideration to the matter. It, Is
believed that some legal complica
tions are likely to ensue inasmuch, as
liquor -dealers in this city have licenses
which do not expire until December
1, 1919, while the national prohibi
tion order goes into effect July 1.
County Sheriff Pease waa asked to
day if he thought national prohibi
tion would make business dull at tin
county jail. He said he did not be
lleve the new order would change
present conditions at the institution
very much. There are only 135 pris
oners at the Jail and but a small pro
p ortl on of these are char ge d wi th
drunkenness. The sheriff declared
that when the dry spell comes there
may be a decrease in the number of
arrests for assault, breach of the
peace and other crimes sometimes in
duced by too much Indulgence in the
cap that cheers.
STRIKE TROUBLE

Oeneral Grocery 8tore in Lordship.
The residents in that vicinity have
requested the installation of such a
station for some time. M. C. Coles,
the proprietor of the store, will be
the olerk in charge.
ATJj BIDS REJECTED.
All the sealed bids received by
Local Board No. 6 for the furniture
and typewriters which . had been in
use during the war draft were reject
ed as they did not come up to expec
tations.
It was expected that the' offers
would be at least 50 per cent, of the
cost and as none of the bids' came
anywhere near those figures they were
all rejected. !-
SITITATION ChlTICAIj.

Trouble Caused Ey
Union Affiliation
(Continued From Paire One.)
In talking of the situation todav to
a Times representative, il'iste Sulli
van, orgranizer. said: "The rumor
that Miss Keefe called other opera
tors 'yellow dogs' is funtrue and un
founded. Miss Keefe has .been in the
employ of the concern for a number
of years and. is -one of the 'best oper
ators, not only in performance of
duty, but in character. The trouble
started only because the officials of
tho Telephone company are asrair.st a
union of this kind and have been try
ing hard to discourage its organiza
tion.
"If they would only try and tmder
Ftand what this union means to- the
Blrls, probably they would affiliate
themselves to the principles. It is
simply a system of collective bar
gaining. The girls are certain of
their position and demand proper
payment for the work. President
Wilson had endorsed the movement
Which has spread with an almost
overwhelming success all through the
New England etates.
Asked if the officials at the com
pany knew of the organization. Miss
Bullivan laughed and said, "Why, Mr.
Sanderson has been extended an Invi
tation to attend the second meeting
of the union and the statement that
he was not aware of the organisation
Is rather amuslnff."
"Tho chief operators have attended
the meetings also, and every one at
the exchange knew cf Its existence.
"It would seem, though, that if
open methods were not appreciated
by the Southern New England Tele
phone Company, as it seems to dis
band the. union at any cost. Wo have
not only this situation in Bridgeport,
but the same is true in Hartford
where the girls have been In tho em
ploy of the company for ten years,
and have been dismissed for minor
offenses. While it is true that the
non-union eirls were dismissed in
Hartford also, they were later taken
back to work, but the union girls
were shut out.
"My own years of experience with
the telephone company makes me
realize that while higher officials
seem very fair, executives under them
take their orders from up above, I
regret to say that I have been shad
owed constantly by representatives of
the Southern New England Company
and my whereabouts were always
looked after by them.
"Regarding- Miss Wooldiworth's dis
missal, I can- say that it is a. well
known fact, as any chief operator will
ag-ee, tha if ,yiou observe long
enough at the most perfect operator,
ou will -find ifreJularities, While
girls in the Southern New Bngiand
Telephone company are "paid very
well, at present, other conditions are
far -from satisfactory. The girls are
cjttecioned eo closely twhen a union
is started that many irls (play safe
by keeiping- out of the union until the
excitement is over.
"The girls are not on strike, they
are only unnerved," ehe concluded,
"and we shall hold a special meeting
on (Monday for the two discharged
iris when action will -be taken to have
them reinstated.
The four girls who resigned are
Miss Ethel Keefe, Miss Lillian Good
fellow, Miss Eva Banks and Miss
Julia Bryant They were question
ed so closely by telephone officials
that they were compelled to resign.
Miss Sullivan came here last night
cancelling an appointment at Bos
ten. She advised Miss Julia O'Con
nor, president of the Telephone Op
erators' Union, of the situation, this
morning. Miss Sullivan is very ar
dent in her work and is certain that
after the matter has . subsided, he
officials will agree that the union is
no cause for alarm to their concern
and that it will be better for the con
cern when the girls.are organized an
work in harmony.

organization will be held next Friday
night either at the armory or the Elks
club. Notice of the place of meeting
will be given out later.

Famous Divisions
Will Retain Names
to Keep Traditions
(Continued From Page One.)
The First to Seventh Divisions will
retain the designations of the seven
regular divisions now in France, com
prising the First and Second Army
corps.
In each case where a division has
been given the designation of a Na
tional Guard and National Army di
vision, it will be recruited from the
district surrounding the camp named
as its base and from which the or
iginal division of that designation was
drawn.
In making this announcement Gen
eral March said that the department
waa proceeding with the organiza
tion of the army on the basis of a
peace strength of 509,000. The tac
tical organization will comprise army
corps of 20 infantry divisions and one
cavalry division. Whether this or
ganization will become permanent, he
said, depends entirely on future legis
lation. The decision to raise a special for
eign service volunteer replacement
force of 50,000 men. General March
said today, was based on the discov
ery made by Secretary Baker and
himself on their recent tour of army
camps that a large number of men
were anxious to enlist in the army if
guaranteed service abroad.
A great number of men among the
p.nit3 which were trained in this
country for narvice against Germany
but who never reached France, he
said, had expressed a desire to make
the trip abroad.
On their recent tour General
March and Secretary Baker found tho
rate of enlistments very low. only 2.
797 men having been recruited at the
regular depots. This recruitment is
under the legislation authorizing a
total of 175,000 men. The term of
enlistment is one-third of the total
for one year and the remainder for
three years. General March said
that enlistments so far were about
equal for the two classes.
The 60.000 replacement troops to
be assembled at Camp Meade are be
ing recruited under this authority,
and their number represents the total
which the War Department feels it
can premise immediate foreign ser
vice to take the place of men in the
expeditionary forces who are eligible
for and who desire diecharge,
So far as possible, General March
said, the wishes of the men who enlist
under this special call as to the place
of service will be met by the depart
ment. If a recruit desires service in
Italy he will be sent with a replace
ment unit to the American forces
there. If he desires service in Francs
or in Russia, so far as circumstances
permit his wishes will be - met.
Regarding the forces in Italy, while
no recent advices have come to the
War Department, General March said
indications were that preparations
were being made to withdraw the
332nd Infantry from that country.
All Committees Will
Discuss Regulations
Preceding the regular meetiiuj of
the Board of Aldermen in the Com
mon Council chambers on Monday
night, all standing committees of that
body will meet in City Clerk J. Alex.
H. Robinson's office to discuss the
traffic report, submitted to the Board
of Aldermen at the- meeing held on
Monday evening, March 3.
While no announcements have been
made in regard to the meeting of the
Aldermen, it is expected that matters
of importance will come up, as it will
be the first meeting -attended by May
or Clifford B. -Wilson in the past
month ,

Auto Collisions
Result in Starting
of Three Lawsuits
Automobile collisions were the
cause of three suits filed today in the
Common Pleas Court and in which
actions local residents are parties. In
one of the suits Martin Heanue, who
conducts a motion picture theatre on
Oak street, has sued M. Ross of this
city, for ?400 damages. He claims
his car was damaged when struck on
Park avenue by Ross' truck.
Joseph Archer of this city, wants
damages of $600 in his suit against
fjohn Peck of Newtown. He claims
his machine was hit by Peck's car
last January and badly damaged.
Peck is charged with negligent driv
ing. The third action is filed by Paul
Botsford of this city, who sues John
Giordandk-r of this city for $500.
P.otsford alleges that his automobile
was damaged as a resist of a collis
ion with the defendant's car on State
