Eighty-Eight Recruiting Sta
tions in Its District,
Humes Says
Washington, March 13.—Reading,
Pa., was a big recruiting cantor for
the "bloody class revolution"
. through which, according to the
memorandum submitted to the Sen
ate committee investgating lawless
propaganda, by Solicitor Lamar, of
the Postofflce Department, the I. "W.
W.'s anarchists and Socialists In the
I'nited States planned to overthrow
the Government.
According to a list of general re
cruiting unions for the American
llolshevists filed with the committee
today by Major E. Lowrey Humes,
attorney for the committee, Reading
was the recruiting center of tho
"Reds" of Eastern Pennsylvania and
Xew Jersey. The radicals maintaln

the documents filed by Major

from books written by radical lead
ers, all of which, in the opinion of
Major Humes, incited to sabotage

Hog Island Plans
Were in Germany
PliUadclphia, March 13. Com
plete plans of the entire shipbiuld
ing project at Hog Island, with val- i
•uable information of the work being
accomplished and that to be under
taken, were found in Germany by
agents of the rmy intelligence
This was made known today aft
er officials of the Fleet Corporation
announced that 254 men, classed as
dangerous spies, who succeeded in
getting employment at Hog Island,
were arrested and prosecuted dur
ing the war. The Hog Island guard j
and secret service engineered the
arrests, with the help of agents of
the Department of Justice and mem
bers of the intelligence corps of the
arnm and navy.
T* plans were obtained and for
warded to Germany despite the
most efficient work by the guards
and secret agents at the plant, but
they did not get through in time
to allow the "war lords" to plan
measures that would hinder opera
tions of the yard.
The plans were detailed, but
showed by their errors that those
who had drawn them up had evi
dently been forced to do their work
away from the inspiration and
actualities of the yard by the vigi
lance of the guards. As a matter
of fact, a high official of the com
pany said today, the plans served
only the purpose of letting Germany
know what was already suspected—
that the United States was sparing
no expense and no resource in its
determination to overcome the Cen
tral Powers.

teachers of Philadelphia are getting

teachers hope to gain the salary in
crease which they have been strug
gling unsuccessfully to get as in
dividuals. It Is said that the teachers
in Philadelphia's primary schools are
•worse paid than those in any other
big city in the United States.

Philadelphia, March 13.—More than
150,000 textile workers In Philadel
phia ultimately will be the benefici
aries of a profit-sharing plan which
has been approved by the Men and
Managements Textile Council, com
prising a majority of the large tex
tile mill owners in this city.
The plan already has been adopted

Advice to the Lovelorn
From a Real Man
I have been reading your interest
ing little talks and "Advice to the
Lovelorn" for some time and find
some of the questions quite amus
ing, especially in Friday's paper:
"What Makes Married Life Dull?"
. I to . say: "People make it
dull themselves. I have been mar
ried for seventeen years. Since my
wife died last fall leaving me with
six children ranging in age from
three to sixteen years, I have felt
that those seventeen were the hap
piest years of my life. If two peo
ple ever lived happily together, we
did. My idea of a dull married life
is that there is too much selfishness
on both sides; the husband not
taking any interest in the house or
home more than a boarder and the
wife uninterested in the occupation
of her husband. Many an evening
liueband comes home with worries
either in labor or business, is met
by a smiling, sympathizing wife and
tidy house, no matter how hum
ble, and by the time supper is ready
there will be enough subjects to
discuss to outlast the meal.
And, a home with childen is hap
pier than a home without them for
they bind the husband and wife
closer together In love and happi
ness. At the same time the man
ought to help his wife in anything
she is interested in and then her
love for him will never grow cold
and at the same time he is bring
. ing happiness to himself. Some
husbands do not appreciate the
worth of a good wife until she Is
gone, and then It is too late.
V. M. S.
. Nicholas Schmitz, extensive rep
resentative in agronomy of Penn
sylvania State College, will be the
speaker at a meeting this evening
in the Beaver school, near Cham
ber's Hill. He will speak on "Al
falfa Culture." Miss Mary Ruth
Fisher will speak on "Home Econo
mics and What it Means."
Looks For Rapid Growth

Hat Off to the New Hotel
A solitary figure stood looking

lines of the Capitol. He remained
there for quite a time, intent upon

George M. Harry, at the cigar and
news stand, and began a discus

and steps for Its improvement along
