the United States railroad labor board

the shop crafts unions, and the six in
ternational union heads, refused to ap
pear for an official Investigation of the
strike by the board. No further at
tempt to forestall the strike was made.
A threatened strike of 400.000 rail
way maintenance of way employes was
at least postponed, however, by the
board’s intervention. The strike of
this group had been expected to paral
lel that of the shopmen.
Twelve railroad representatives an
nounced their willingness to cancel all
existing contracts for the performance
of railroad work by outside firms.
Practically all maintained that it was
their legal right to contract such work

the first time since the bill was called
up nine weeks ago, but there was the
first real split in the Democratic ranks.
Five roll calls were demanded during

explained that this was in the nature
of a luxury tab.

CAT CREEK SAND
YIELDS BIG WELL
Productivitty of Lower Stratum Will
More Than Double Life
of Field
Billings.—The Franz producer from
the deep sand, brought im last week
in the Cat Creek field, is a tremend
ous oil well, according to news which
has just reached here.
The well was drilled seven feet fur
ther into the sand, and is now making
over 3,000 flush. This is said to be a
conservative estimate of the Increased
flow.
The Franz well is offset to the Mid-
Northern gusher, Clayton-18 No. 2, and
Is 440 feet due south of the Clayton
The latter well J« making 1,500 barrels
a day. The Franz corporation has
the new well connected up with the
pipe line, and is handling the big flow
In good shape. It is said.
The two big producers in the second
Cat Creek sand of the Wild Schutz
tract indicate a tremendous quantity of
oil remains in this field, despite the
fact that scores of wells havebeen pro
ducing the liquid wealth for three or
four years from the first sands. The
productivity of the lower stratum will
double the life of the field. It Is be
lieved by geologists and experienced
operators.
The Mid-Northern and Frants cor
porations are said to hold practically
all the ground on which w-ells can be
drilled to the second sands. Officials
of the Mid-Northern company said that
there are no immediate plans to drill
u new well to the deep sand.
SEIZURE OF YANKS BY
MEXICANS STIRS CAPITAL
Act of Bandits Will Not Affect Rela

Obregon Is Claim

can employes of the Cortez Oil com
pany at Tampico. Mexico, reported to
the state department, ns security for
a ransom of 15,000 pesos, created a
stir in official circles in Washington.
Lacking further information ns to
what happened behind what is ap
parently a rigid censorship nt Tam
pico, however, there was litttle to in
dicate whether the incident would lead
toward any change of attitude here
toward the Obregon government in
Mexico.
In fact at the White House It was
said that relations between the United
States and Mexico were not likely to
be affected in any way by the bandits’
outbreak.
Beyond a brief report stating that
in addition to the two score American
employes, a quarter of a million dol
lars worth of destructible property of
the Cortez Oil company was being held
as security for the payment demanded,
no other word has reached the state
department concerning the bandit ac
tion in Tampico.
At least, so far as known, the state
department had not reported the Cor
tez company incident to either army
or navy officials or inquired ns to the
availability of navy ships to send to
the scene. There is no American war
ship in waters adjacent to Tampico.

GOVERNMENT BACK
OF LABOR BOARD
ITS DECISIONS VOICE LAW AND
MUST STAND, SAYS
ULTIMATUM
STANDING SQUARELY BEHIND
No Further Action Will be Taken By
Government Unless Continuation
of Transportation Is
. Threatened
Washington. The administration,
speaking through the White House, has
declared its determination to stand
squarely behind the railroad labor
Ixiard. It was because of the decisions
of the labor board that the shop crafts
men decided to quit work.
The administration view, set forth in
language as forcible as the spokesman
could command, was that the labor
board Is one of the agencies of the
government dealing with disputes be
tween the roads and their employes
and therefore Its decrees must and
would be barked up by the government.
The labor board “Is the government
when it speaks,’’ was the* way the
spokesman summed up the administra
tion view, adding that this view held,
whether the board’s decisions drew the
protests of labor organizations because
they involved cuts in wages, or whether
they were protested by the railroads
because they required the management
to desist In contracting out repair work
to private shops. The determinations
‘ f the board, the administration fur
ther was asserted to hold, are by the
delegated authority of congress and in
a field definitely marked out In the
law of the land.
The general belief is that ns the
transportation act clothes the labor
board with no powers to enforce Its
decision, there are no steps left for
the government to take except to main
tain Its stand behind the board’s de
cisions.
TEN PER CENT SLASH IN
FREIGHT RATES EFFECTIVE
Practically AH Commodities Reduced;
New Schedules Are In
corporated
Washington.—Freight rates through
out the United States on practically all
commodities were reduced by 10 per
cent when the carriers of the country
put into effect the decision rendered
last month by the interstate commerce
commission in the general rate case.
New schedules Incorporated in the re
duction have been completed since the
decision was handed down, although a
series of orders abrogating rules and
regulations concerning publication of
new rates and like details were neces
sary to prevent delays in some in
stances.
Agricultural commodities will be the
only important traffic which the 10
per cent cut will not affect. rr.»?s on
these commodities having been reduced
last January. One or two other classi
fications of freight have also been
given lower rates by commission or
ders in recent months and those also
are excluded from the new cuts. Ita!l--_
road statisticians have worked out the
estimate that the general rate decision
will cause a decrease of $1150.000.000
annually In the nation’s freight bill.

mise and considers that it has no au

SUMMER DRINKS
During the warm weather the appe
tite craves cool drinks—not too cold —
. as the delicate
I flavor is not
easily detected.
The beverage is
best prepared anil
| placed near (he
ice and when
serving only a
small portion of
shaved Ice should be added.
Glasses In which summer drinks are
served are very attractive when made
of thin glass and they should be beau
tifully polished to add pleasure to the
eye.
Ginger ale and carbonated waters
may be kept on hand to add to the
flavor and zest of the drink.
There are drinks that are foods,
those that stimulate, such as tea, and
those which are taken merely to re
fresh.
Milk drinks combined with chocolate
and eggs are a food in themselves.
Egg Orangeade.—Take six table
spoonfuls of orange Juice two tea
spoonfuls of lemon Juice, one egg, one
and one-half teaspoonfuls of sugar.
Bent the yolk of egg until light, then
add the sugar and beat again. Bent
in the fruit Juice nnd add the stiffly
beaten white of egg. When well mixed
pour into a tall glass one-third full of
crushed Ice.
Ginger Grape uice.—Place In a tall
glass three tablespoonfuls of grape
Juice, two teaspoon fills of lemon Juice,
two teaspoonfuls of orange Juice and
one-half teaspoonful of sugar. Stir
well and add one-half a glass of
shaved ice and fill the glass with gin
ger ale. Serve at once.
Chocolate Egg Milk Shake.—Take
two tablespoonfuls of chocolate sirup,
one egg. one cupful of sweet milk,
three tablespoonfuls of crushed ice,
vanilla to taste. I'ut all together In a
large tumbler jar and shake vigor
ously until quite light. Pour Into a
glass nnd serve immediately.
Almond Milk Shake.—To one cupful
of sweet milk add one pgg, one tea
spoonful of sugar nnd three drops of
almond extract. Beat the yolk with
the sugar and flavoring, ndd the white
stiffly beaten, ndd the milk nnd pour
Into a Jnr with a tight cover. Add a
few pieces of Ice and shake vig
orously until light. Pouf into a glass
and serve at once.
Apple Water.—Core, pare and cut
four apples in small pieces, put them
in a pitcher, add the rind of a lemon,
one cupful of sugar and four cupfuls
of water boiling hot, cover the pitcher
and let stand to cool and chill before
serving.
It is a good and safe rule to sojourn
In every place as If you meant to
spend your life there, never omitting
an opportunity of doing a kindness, or
speaking a true word, or making a
friend.—John Ruskin.
FOODS FOR HOT WEATHER.
Nature supplies the food needed for
each season. In summer we have
plenty of fresh
fruitn and vege
tables.
Chilling the
stomach with
i<• e s and cold
drinks Is not the
way to keep cool.
A hot soup or
something hot at the beginning of the
meal will start the sluggish stomach
so that it will more quickly assimilate
food.
During warm weather we reduce the
amount of meat- consumed, but do not
eliminate It entirely.
Spiced beef Is a dish especially good
for a hot weather dish, but is very un
common. Try it.
Virginia Spiced Beef.—Take a sir
loin of beef or a rump piece that has
been in the pickle eight days. Put in
a kettle of cold water over a slow fire.
Skim thoroughly, out In a lemon or
two with the seeds removed, two bay
leaves, a dozen peppercorns and two
tablespoonfuls of tarragon vinegar.
Let the meat cook slowly until tender,
then allow it to remain all night tn the
water In which it was cooked. Re
move and place the meat under a
weight.
Ham Mousse.—Soften a tablespoon
ful of gelatin in enough cold water to
cover, pour over It a cupful of boiling
stock, stir until dissolved, strain nnd
pour the liquid over two cupfuls of
chopped ham, stand aside until It be
gins to congeal, then fold In a cupful
of whipped cream and turn the mix
ture into a wet mold. Serve when
luird on lettuce.
A cupful of nuts added to the regu
latlon potato salad will make of it a
dish sufficiently satisfying for the
main dish.
Stuff tumutveß with bread crumbs
and cheese. Pour a dish of seasoned
stewed tomatoes over a dish contain
ing a few uncooked eggs, stir with a
fork, season and serve.
For a hot weather luncheon or din
ner serve a dish of soup hot and well
seasoned, a boiled fish with tartar
sauce, bread and butter sandwiches
with chilled fruit and cookies for des
sert or ?. dish of ice or sherbet.
