* Conference I'nder Direction
of Department of Labor and ;
• Industry Lively Affair
Vmo-r the direction of the division
industrial hygiene and engineering j
the bureau of inspection of the ,
department or I-abor and Industry of I
the State and with Dr. Francis D. Pat
terson. Chief of the Division, of this
* Pity, presiding the eighth conference of
Industrial Physicians and Surgeons was
in the William Fenn Hotel. Pitts
burgh. Lively and interesting discus- j
"Von pertaining to the advantages and
disadvantages of health insurance mark- j
•d Friday afternoon's session.
i*. Frederick L. Hoffman, thirds vice '
president and statistician of the Vru- :
Ssutial Insurance Company of America. !
said health insurance was nothing more
than insidious propaganda similar to !
that which was used by the German
Government. "The movement which is t
now on foot in this State and in other
States to have Legislaturese approve of
health insurance, is for not other pur
pose than to get absolute control of the j
workingman." Dr. Hoffman asserted.
"Germany has had health insurance !
for more than 23 years. It has proved '
n barrier to its progress. Before this
form of insurance was adopted by the I
Government the German people were i
more progressive, but Just as soon as
the health insurance got a foothold on
the country It became stagnant. By |
having a form of health Insurance in that
country it put the people in the direct j
control of the Government. Every penny j
which they earned would more or less j
directly revert back to the Government. |
Health insurance in this country would
he a delusion and a snare to .the peo-1
pie. It would be nothing more than)
fooling the people."
I'rging the advantages of health in- 1
surance. John A. Lapp of the Ohio i
Health and Old Age Commission point- I
ed out that sickness is a serious burden. 1
and that it falls with crushing force
upon some people, causing economic dis
tress and destitution. At present. Mr.
Lapp said, the individual bears nearly
Itie whole burden. Not more than 10 .
1 r cer.t of the sickness is distributed !
by means of insurance. Industry pays
very little toward the cost of sickness,
nr.d the public does very little except to 1
take care of the disastrous consequences. '
In Chairman Fatterson's address, he ,
de v :ared that the industrial surgeons
and physicians of Pennsylvania were
doing meritorious work in caring for j
and attending the sick and injured '
men in the many industrial plants of
the Commonwealth.
Cel. Edward Martin, commissioner of
health of the State Department of
Health, spoke on "How the Industrial
Physicians and Our State Department
of Health Can Best Co-operate."
Dr. Frederick L. Van Sickle, president
or' the Medical Society of Pennsylvania,
addressed the conference.
A Nation's Safety
depends upon more than
wealth or the power of its
mighty guns. It rests in its
robust children and in its strong,
vigorous manhood.

i The Fishermen's License Bill
Likely to Be Beported
at Early Dale
House of Representatives com- ;
' miltees will decide during the com- ;
ing week in what form the various •
bills dealing with features of the 1
game and fish codes of 1917 shall (
be handled. Since the notable hear
ing held Tuesday by the committees 1
i of the two Houses and attended by
' representatives of the sportmen s as
' sociations of the State considerable I
sentiment has been expressd by |
! legislators in favor of allowing the
codes to stand the test of two more ,
: years and to make as few alterations ;
as possible in the laws. Some J
• changes in the seasons relative to ;
coons, "blackbirds and squirrels are j
possible, but there will be no change
in the deer season. The disposition ;
' is to raise the bounty on wild cats i
! and weasels which know no closed i
! season, in the language of one man j
I at the conference, and to enact the
new plan for payment of bounties •
, direct by the State Game Conimls- I
sioti. The Scheme to make the ;
grouse and quail song birds which .
would prevent hunting them at all i
[ is doomed.
The Bowman bill for the State ;
Game Commission to have authority i
to buy land for game preserves, not
exceeding $lO an acre and to provide '
| for mineral and gas and oil rights. ,
lis to be amended so that.in case the j
. State gets the surface only it will.
I be liable only for the taxes on that |
i much, the holders of the reserved j
| resources bearing their share. Such i
an act would enable the State to |
add materially to the holdings for
j game propagation and give every i
'• county something eventually with a
few exceptions.
The sub committee in charge of
the fishermen's license measure is j
disposed to report it favorably tol
. the fish committee with a provision
that only men shall pay the license.
Such a measure, it is contended,
would provide the funds needed to
i complete the hatcheries and to start
I a systematic campaign for restock
ing streams with trout and other
Mexican Miners to
Consider Remedies
For After-War Crisis
Mexico City. March 17.—Fearing
that the mining crisis now threat
ening Mexico will result in the clos
ing of mines in various parts of the
country, and idleness for thousands
of miners, representatives of this
trade will meet soon in Mexico City
to consider remedies for presenta
tion to the government. The great
decrease, since the ending of the
war. of the prices obtained for
I metals mined in Mexico, lias it is
claimed, made it impossible for
many companies in Mexico to op-
I erate at a profit and there is im
minent danger thai the workings

The Joint City-Countv Office'
Building Measure Finds j
Favor Among Senators
Senator Frank A. Smith expects j
to get favorable action this week on j
; the bill he introduced into the Sen
! ate providing that county seats and j
j counties may unite in a joint office |
I building. This is the measure draft- i
ed to enable Harrisburg and Dau- !
phin county to meet the call of;
i Governor Sproul for such a building
| to front, on Capitol Park extenston. ,
'■ Dauphin's new Senator has found i
no objection to the bill and its pass- 1
! age is generally expected.
Senator Smith will to-n.glit Intro- j
' dure the appropriation bills for Har
risburg charities. They are also in j
: the House.
Discussion of May 13 as a pos
sible date for adjournment of the!
j Legislature of 1919 has had the ef- i
; feet of expediting the preparation of j
! bills and scores are being drafted for i
early submission to the two Houses. I
\ The Legislative Reference Bureau, |
I which has drawn up or passed upon,
the form of almost ninety-five per!
| cent of the bills which have been !
I presented, is fairly swamped with j
' proposed legislation and the force j
: is working at nights to advance the i
tasks confided to the bureau.
: Both branches of the Legislature
! will meet this evening at 9 o'clock
! and it is probable that Governor
Sproul xvill send some departmental
| appointments to the Senate and that.
! some of his administration bills will
}be introduced. The House appro
i priations committee is sending out
' calls to members to get in their,
; bills for charity appropriations and
; is about to begin work on the general
appropriation bill.
Several hearings are scheduled for
the week, including one for Western ;

1 Philadelphia and Pittsburgh elec
| tive, which is to be held tomorrow,
while Wednesday there will be hear
! ings on the bill to permit
| Sunday concerts and entertainments
' and the mercantile license tax re
! pealer. A hearing was held on the
Korke bill in Pittsburgh this morn-
I ing.
The Senate calendar is mainly
i made up of second reading bills, in-
I eluding those to create the State
Welfare Commission, providing for
co-operation with the Government
in eradication of the potato wart
disease, several State hospital deti
j ciency bills and the West Virginia
natural gas suit resolution.
On the House calendar are more
i' than sixty bills, forty-two being on
; second reading alone. The first
reading list includes the bills to
authorize municipalities to abolish
i "skip-stops:" Brady registration and
• primary bills; Cox bill increasing
' penalties for illegal operation of
! automobiles: while the $50,000,000
' j bond issue bill, which was amended
■ in minor details, is up for final pass
■ age. The third reading list includes
1 ; the bill to authorize the return!
! of liquor license money paid for a
year or other periods together with
" the Bolard bill requiring all official
and legal advertisements to be print
ed in English language newspapers.
I! The Heyburn milk bills, first and

i ! By Associated Press,
Copenhagen, March 17.—Another
: i attempt has been made against the

' | Bolshevik premier, at Moscow, ac
j l cording to reports received here.
, ! Shots were fired at Lenine, but he
iwas not injured. His chauffeur was
. wounded.
Losing Time to Be Checked—j
Duplication to Give Way
to Centralization
i The bill to reorganize tiie Depart- j
■ tnent of Agriculture which will he ;
! presented to the Senate tonight by
I Senator K. E. Jones, chairman ot"
1 the Committee on Agriculture, is
i held about the Capitol to embody in
j many details what Governor Wil
-1 !iam S. Sprout is planning to put
into the State government. It takes
; a department which has had boards
; and commissions and dissensions and
• other things and make it a strongly
> centralized branch of the govern
-1 nient with the secretary responsible
! to the Governor.
In addition to this demonstration 1
| of what the Governor plans there'
j is no question in the minds of ob- j
i servers that the gubernatorial order
; for the chiefs of departments of the
! State's big organization on Capitol
i Hill to blow the whistles for their
i wandering employes to return to i
work and either stay at work or
leave the service has produced tt
I wholesome effect in the big granite
■ building. It is putting into effect
! another of the Sproul plans to make
i the State government efficient. The
| Governor holds that some depart
| ments have all the people' they need
to do their work if they work, and
that there is no occasion for ii
crease of the pay roll. If* salaries
need readjustment he has offered a
means to do it fairly in the bill to
create the State Salary Board. This
! would be a sort of general manager's
I council and provide against emer
; gencies as well overcome some of
; the barriers imposed by statutes of
| by-gone days, but which while very
good in their time are out of place
] in modern business.
| Since the Governor has conte into
; office there have been several
j changes in the business system at
i the Capitol. Heads of departments
who used to have to tap at the door
of the Governor's suite for approval
i of appointments of a janitress were
to! 1 early that their employes were
their own affair and that results
i were what would count. Then sug
gestions were made for abolishing
i some customs which had grown up
until people thought they were otfi
; cial requirements and which had
■ 1 been used for the making of jobs
• payable from contingent funds.
i These suggestions were followed in
■ i some cases. In those where they
; 1 were not the order for adherence to
L law has brought the desired end
■ in more ways# than one.
L : And a few days ago the Governor
' gave evidence of the manner in
• which he is taking his job as the
t head of a big business organization
t by telling some lteads that they did
> ■ not neeil more hands, but willing
i ' hands. Some traveling inspectors of
t ! departments and some Capitol build
jiing attaches will also have to toe
f the mark and do as their chiefs di
> ; rect about working. Taking days
1 ; off without permission will also be
. j "bad practice."
s j Steps taken the last few days to
I j bring the question of enforcement of
i i the .vaccination law to an issue in
! 1 various parts of the State are be
-1 lieved to be preliminary to a general
.(plan to concentrate in the Depart
. j ment of Health everything in the
1 i State government relating to health.
; It will require much work and con
t siderabie readjustment, but the
j heads of several departments which
f have details which relate to health
j are endeavoring to work out the
j idea. Eventually the Department of
. ' Health will have either supervision
. ! or cognizance of all processes on ac
j count of health,
j One of the first moves will be to
' eliminate the overlapping and uncer
tainties between the Departments of
! Agriculture and Health in regard to
I dairy supervision and milk. The De
partment of Health will eo-operate
' very closely in the establishment of
' the militia camp sanitation at Mt.
"j Gretna where the officers will gather
• |in June and tire 3.250 militiamen
0 1 in July. It is also planned to ob
s tain a still closer relationship be
tween the educational authorities
and the health officers in regard to
vaccination and diseases and with
j the State Police if re.quired for en
forcements. The work of the State
Policemen in the influenza epidemic
has demonstrated what they can do.
* It is also probable that the Health
. Department tvili co-olaborate with
| the Workmen's Compensation Board
1 in the matter of study and control
of occupational diseases. Certain
: inspections by the Department of
Labor and Industry and the Depart
| ment of Health will also be worked
| out on a basis of less "lost motion."
New French Babies
Are Getting Chocolate
Paris. March 17.—Children born
in France since the beginning of the
war have just made a glorious dis-
I covery. They have tasted choco
| lates. In a congested quarter of
i Paris, writes an Associated Press
correspondent, a line stretching for
, more than a hundred yards wanted a
j Chance to enter a grocery store.
; Four policemen were keeping order
among the crowd and women were
1 actually struggling for a place in
j the line.
"What are they fighting for?" a
j policeman was asked.
; "The store is selling a quarter of
a pound.of chocolate to each one."
responded the officer. "That is the
reason why you see so many women
bearing their children in arms, they
\ are allowed half a pound then."
American Soldiers
in Germany Discard
Helmets and Gas Masks
Coblcnz, March 17. American
soldiers doing duty with the army of
occupation finally have been allowed
|to discard their steel helmets and
gas masks. All through the march
across Rhenish Prussia and during
I the early weeks of patrolling of the
! Rhine and the Coblenz bridgehead
j the troops were kept in fighting trim
at all times. But a recent order
says helmets and gas masks should
■ be stored by each company "in such
\ a manner as to facilitate their
prompt issue at a moment's notice
j should the occasion demand them."
41 French Generals
Killed During the War
Paris, March 17. Forty-one
I French generals have been killed
! in the war, an official list states.
! Five of them. Generals Bridoux,
•j T.oyseau de Grandmaison. Marcot,
| Guignabaudet and Masnou were
j generals of divisions, and the other
; thirty-six were brigadier generals.
' although at the time they met their
death they were almost without ex
| ception in command of divisions. j
