SENATE PROBES FAILURE
OF HOUSING CORP. TO
PAY BRIDGEPORT TAXES
Hartford. Aug. 6 Windham coun
ty may be placed under quarantine
against rabies if the spread of rabies
now suspected in the towns of Klll
lngly and Brooklyn is not affected.
Commissioner on Domestic Animals
James M. Whittlesey announced yes
terday, following the issuing of a no
tice of a dog quarantine for those
two towns as the result of the killing
of a rabies infected dog in Brooklyn
last Saturday.
"The law will be strictly enforced,"
Commissioner Whittlesey said yester
day. "State Policeman Elliott is In
charge of the enforcement in Killing
ly and Brooklyn and he is equipped
with warrants and authorized to make
immediate arrests of violators.' As
notice of a quarantine must be ad
vertised in the towns affected for five
days the quarantine must be adver
tised in the' town affected for - five
days the quarantine will be effective
the middle of next week. In the
meantime every suspected canine will
be a prey to the enforcement offi
cers. Because of the visit of the mad dog
to Brooklyn last Saturday several
children who were bitten by the ani
mal are undergoing the pasteur treat
ment. Several dogs bitten by the
rabies infected canine have been kill
ed by the dog warden. A valuable
German police dog -was among those
killed and - a kennel of similar valu
able dog3 Is now under quarantine,
according to Commissioner Whittle
sey. The quarantine may last until
January 1 or longer. Commissioner
Whittlesey said.
"The period of infection is from
twenty-two days to as much as six
months." Commissioner Whittlesey
said, "and we are taking no chances.
If the infection should spread from
Killingly and Brooklyn the whole of
Windham county may have to be
quarantined. The mad dog which was
killed in Brooklyn is now believed to
have strayed In from Massachusetts.
The town of Brooklyn was visited by
a mad dog last spring and it was be
lieved that the infection had been
stamped out as several dogs bitten
by the animal were killed. This is
evidently a secondary infection."
According to the report of the de
partment's activities in dog law en
forcement in July, which Commis
sioner Whittlesey issued yesterday,
there were twenty-five prosecutions
for violations. There was the one
case of rabies in Brooklyn. The num
ber of dogs captured by dog wardens
was 212 of which thirty-seven were
redeemed by their owners. Six dogs
were held in pound and 203 dogs
were killed.
"THE RIGHT TO LOVE CARRIES
. WITH IT THE RIGHT TO JILT,"
BRITISH WRITER ASSEVERATES
, By SEVm CI. PAKKE,
; International News Service Staff Cor
respondent. London, Aug. 6 as a man the
j right to jilt a girl whom he is en
! gaged to marry?
The question has been raised by
London newspapers following a
! statement mie by Justice McCardie
in a breach of promise case at Bir-
mingham.
"It is my conclusion," said the jus
. tice, "that more than half the di
; vorces are caused because It he par
' ties were not really in iove. In many
. cases they discovered that fact bet
; fore the marriage .took place. A
: srirl has a right to jilt a man but a
, man often goes ahead with the raar
; riage, . fearing breach of promise pro
i ceedings,"
The Marchioness Townshend said
; she thought any honest man would
j teH his fiancee (that he had ceased to
j love her, regardless of the risk of a
' breach of promise suit.
The remarkable thing is that so
S mans girls fail to realize that the
men to whom they are engaged no
f longer love them," she added.
Miss Genevieve Ward, English ac
; tress, said that an engaged girl should
I tbe glad to get rid of a man who has
! transferred his aeffctions to another
; without thinking of breach of prom
; ise suits.
I The Daily Mail, canvassing a num
ber of ."practical business girls," re
ports that they prefer to have their
I -fiances tell them the truth before
t the trip to the altar. They are gen
t eraHy opposed to breach of promise
! actions, but believe that a girl who
bar spent a lot of .money for a wed
ling outfit should be reimbursed by
a. jiltfrn? fiance.
"Tin risht -to -love carries with it
the right to jilt," announces one
writer. "I fa man or woman finds
that the early attraction is passing,
it is therefore "their bounden duty to
break off. The day may a rive when
damages will be awarded, not for
correcting a very human mistake on
the threshold of disister, but for fall
ing to correct it. There ought to be
away of avoding these disastesr
without undue penalty. For there is
nothing quite to hideous, or quite so
hopeless as a loveless marriage."
Seduction One Thing, Whim Another.
A well-known English judge, writ
ing in the Evening Standard, upholds
rnan's right to jilt.
"Where, a man has seduced a girl
then an action is a verv proper
thing," writes this Judge. 'But that
se man can be sued merely because,
having genuinely (fallen in love he
genuinely falls out again, is ridicu
lous. In the absence of more serious
features ,a woman should not be able
to get damages merely because a
man changes his mind.
"I have known cases where the
proposed suit got so far as the issu
ing of the writ whe nthe fiance has
said, ' Iwould arther marry you than
face courts like this." Yes, and I
have known cases where the girl has
accepted the offer. A good start for
connubial bliss!
"I do not want to convey the im
pression, however, that there are not
thoroughly serious i and justified
cases. In addition to the class to
which T have referred there is that
in which a man heartlessly keeps a
girl hanging about for years 10, 15.
o rmaybe more until she loses all
chance of marrying anyone else.
When a- man behaves as badly as
that it Is clearly- right that he. should
have to make -compensation,"
Washington. Aug. & The Senate to-
daj adopted a resolution introduced
by Senator (Frank B. Brandegee of
Connecticut, calling upon the United
States Housing Corporation to explain
why it doe not pay taxes on its
buildings in Bridgeport, Conn.
The housing corporation spent near
ly 84500,000 on 471 houses In Bridge
port, most of which sprang up direct
ly after the cessation of hostilities in
the World War .and the value of Its
property that was considered taxable
during about a year that tH? corpor
ation maintained ownership was
about $1,500,000, it was learned.
Agreed to Settle. -At
the time the housing project
was begun In Bridgeport, former At
torney-General Gregory, ruled that.
inasmuch as the United States Hous
ing Corporation wa3 a government
agency,' "its property could not be
taxed. . However, officials of the cor
poration expressed their willingness
to pay this city for the protection
and other benefits extended to its
property by the city of Bridgeport
and accordingly entered into an
agreement with City Attorney Corn
ley to pay the city the equivalent of
the tax, about 870,000.
The housing corporation disposed
of all its Bridgeport property in Feb
ruary, 1920, it was stated by govern
ment authorities, about half the
houses being bought by the Bridge
port housing corporation and the re
mainder being taken by individuals,
who of course were required to pas
taxe3 on the property from the time
tney acquired it.
Fail to Reach Adjustment.
Representatives of the Bridgeport
city attorneys otn-ce have been in con
ference with various government offi
cials here on different occasions dur
ing the past year, and, being unable
to reach an adjustment, finally took
the matter to Senator Brandegee- for
congressional action. It may be
necessary for Congress to pass an en
abling act to Druis about the pay
ment of the money due the city of
Bridgeport. - - -
Housing corporation records . show
that five groups of buildings . were
erected dn and about Briageoort. four
being in the city and one group in
r airffleld. These houses were dis
tributed as follows at the time the
corporation wound up its affairs in
Connecticut, 232 houses in Seaside
Park, sixty-six In Grassmere, thirty-
six in Black Rock, eighteen in Con
necticut avenue and. 128 in Old Mill
Green. These buildings were capa
ble of accommodating 889 families.
PAINT DISMAL PICTURE OF
RUSSIA'S ECONOMIC CONDITION
Riga, Latvia, Aug. 6 AH Russian
news sources,, Bolshevik and anti
Bolshevik alike, paint a dismal pic
ture of Russia's economic condition
this summer.
Soviet newspapers themselves ad
mit that the famine- which threatens
the country may be even worse than
in preceding years of the Bolshevik
regime. On the other hand, the Bol
shevik government contends that,
notwithstanding the great difficulties
attending the change of Lenine's poli
cies during what it terms as the
present period of transition from
civil war to peace, Russia is slowly,
yet steadily advancing on the road to
restitution of her economic life.
The agricultural machinery which
has arrived from abroad will be of
little assistance, this year, it is ad
mitted. The crop failures in many
governments have affected so large a
proportion of the area sown that the
machinery already on hand will be
ample to harvest this year's crop. In
fact there are more machines than
live stock to draw them and because
of the drought the already depleted
supply of draft animals is threatened
with further extinction because pas
ture lands are drying up.
The Riga Bolshevik newspaper,
Novy Put, recently printed from Mos
cow an extremely frank admission.
It said:
"Several months already have pass
ed since the new economic course has
been inaugurated in Soviet Russia.
But to put, as It were, the engine on
a new track, is no easy task and one
not to be soon accomplished. The
ccumtry is large, the population is
sparse, communications and roads
are generally bad and the transport
service is dislocated. The same is the
case with the postal and telegraph
traffic.
"The new economic policy could
not, of course, as yet have yielded any
appreciable results. At the same
time, during the transition period the
economic situation of Russia is at
present an exceptionally grave one.
The old distribution system has been
abolished and does not yield anything,
while the new (tax in kind) system
can be expected to yield results only
after several months.
"Moscow, Petrograd and other
large industrial centers are experi
encing a grave supply crisis, which is
only in a slight measure alleviated by
imports from abroad, from Siberia
and from the Caucasus. This, in its
turn, can not but influence unfavor,
ably the productivity of industrial
establishments. In the Donetz district
the output of coal has been only 85
per cent, of the program. In the
Moscow mining district, too. the oro-
duction has decreased. '
To make the calamity complete.
there are the droughts following upon
an almost snowless winter. The Volga
territory is . under the menace of
famine owing to a poor harvest. On
the - other hand, in some parts, for in
stance in the western portion of the
Ukraine, the outlook Is good.
vest by means of the tax in-kind, -as
well as Dy tree purchase, are never
theless fairly satisfactory. It is . ex
pected : to establish a- 400, 000.00
poods' grain reserve, which -would
make it possible to put industry on 'a
firm footing. With this end in view
it will, cf course, be necessary to strain
the government and the co-operative
apparatus to the utmost, as was sug
gested by Lenine.
It must, of course, be borne in
mind that no war is going on at
present, the red army is being de
mobilized and will shortly have been
reduced to one-half of its former
strength. The idea of intervention
in the Fast East dos not seem to meet
with the approval of the Powers,
wmcn are up to their ears in trou
bles of their own, which, in spite of all
their efforts, they are unable to over
come.
"Nevertheless, everything points to
the fact that Soviet Russia, notwith
standing the great difficulties she has
to face in the present period of transi
tion, yet steadily advancing on the
road to restitution of her economic
life."
A congress of food supply officials
or ail Russia, called by Lenine to
work out a plan of averting the worst
effects of the threatened famine and
to devise means for collecting the
available foodstuffs, .has just closed at
Moscow. Most of the speakers were
pessmistic, according to the Moscow
Bolshevik newspapers. It was shown
that, because of the disorganized state
of transportation, grain would rot in
the fields in the productive reeions.
while the cities would have to be put
on snort rations, unless iooa could be
imported from abroad.
THUNDER SHOWER
RESULTED IN MAN
INVENTING SODAS
Detroit, Mich., Aug. 6 A summer
thunder shower 41 yeaTS ago resulted
in the "invention" of the ice cream
soda, according to Fred Sanders, Jr.,
of Detroit, whose grandfather, Fred
Sanders, claimed the distinction of
having discovered this American in
stitution. Speaking of his grandfather's dis
covery, Mr. Sanders said:
"Forty years ago . the American
people regarded ice cream much as
the lily that could not be painted. At
that time they 'took it straight.'
Syrups were in general use in drink
concoctions but the ice cream sundae
and its many near relatives were un
known. . Corbonated water was used
by the soda, dispensers in a popular
drink known as sweet cream soda
Its chief ingredient was sweet cream,
direct from the farm.
"The thunder shower that brought
a'bout my grandtfiather's discovery
came in the summer of 1880. He .was
conducting a soft vdrink parlor and
the utor-m caused the sweet cream he
had intended, for sodas to sou-r. Just
after the storm passed a, wedding
party dropped in and my grand
father volunteered to experiment un-

new drink so well that it became

The August Sale of Furniture
Rugs and other House Furnishings
begins the second week.
. There is nothing in material things bearing
a greater influence on our lives than the furni
ture with which we are surrounded daily. "We
cannot live well without beauty, and association
with fine furniture is helpful to the formation of
character. In plain words we must live up to the
beautiful pieces of mahogany, oak or walnut if we
are fortunate enough to have sueh' in otns
homes. The things we need, which we must use,
ought to be good to look upon. A rug, a table, a
desk or chair, an oaken chest, a lamp for the living
room table, all these are in every home and if of
the right kind will serve a two-fold purpose, being
not only useful but beautiful to look at.
This August Clearance with its lowered prices enables persons, of taste to ac
quire the furniture they wish. The best productions of American craftsmen are
within reach of those of moderate incomes.

BEAUTIFUL WIFE OF FAMOUS AUTHOR
PROVES THAT WOMEN CAN DIRECT
SCREEN PRODUCTIONS AS WELL AS MEN
New Tork: Aug. 6 It used to be
an old saying that the 'husband and
wife couldn't both be inordinately
bright. This seemed to be especially
true where literary talent was in-
volved.
But Mrs. George Randolph Chester
has proved that there is nothing to
that notion. For the last 9 years Mrs.
Lillain E. Chester has collaborated
with her talented husband in all of
his books and stories. It is the only
case on record or an international
author working in complete collabora
tion with his wife.
It will probably be of interest to
thousands of readers to know that
Mrs..- Chester aided her husband in
writing the famous Wallingford stor
ies. It now develops that Mrs. Ches
ter put many of the peculiar., twists
into the very original character of
Blackie Daw."
In one of her husband's stories
there was a wealth of detail regard
ing: the girl's dresses, and many read
ers probably remarked that "no mere
man could write all tnese aetaiis aooux
a pretty girl's clothes." And it now
develons that it was Mrs. jnester wno
supplied the feminine touches.
When George Kanaoipn jnester
decided to picturize his stories several
years ago and learn the technical part
of the silent drama Mrs. Chester also
decided to take up scenario writing
and the making of movies in the
studios. Like her husband she be
came a pupil in screen ana studio
fechniciue. and they have several
screen successes to their cerdit.
While American women are enter
ing all fields of activity and enroll
ing in positions formerly held sacred
to mere men, it has been left to Mrs.
Chester to set up a new record for
women in motion pictures.
In collaboration with Mr. Chester
she recently wrote the stoQr and
scenario of theHfinal episode of the
Wallingford series..
Then she accompanied her husband
to a California studio and with him
personally directed the screening of
the story. Mrs. Chester carefully
guarded every detail, as if she were
rearing a child instead of a celluloid
classic.
. After all the scenes were "shot"
she accompanied her husband to a
New York studio, and with him is now
titling, editing and cutting their film.
"Mrs. Chester and I work together
is one person," says her distinguished
husband with enthusiasm. "We
make an ideal combination for we
really collaborate, and she should
have the credit for it."
