the Blue Laws and other "fanatical
measures" which act as a "curb or

resolution favored the permitting of
entertainments, whether admission
is charged ro not. Support was
pledged to any exponent of more
liberal Sunday measures.
Textbooks used in the public
schools of Pennsylvania came in for
their share of denunciation from the
delegates. A resolution was pre

books use in the State were declared
to be unsuitable.

"They have been prepared without
regord to the fundamental needs of
workers," the resolution said. "They
have been censored to meet with the
economic desires of the employing
class." The resolution declared ir
favor of the revision of the text
books used in the public schools of
the State to meet with the more
universal need of labor.
The retention in Russia of Amer
ica forces sent to Europe to battle
the Huns received the severe con
demnation of the convention in a
resolution adopted during to-day's
session. With the armistics signed
and the Peace Treaty in the hands
of the Germans, there is no need
for the American forces to be kept
in Russia, it was said. The men
should be immediately withdrawn

Another resolution bearing on the
Russia situation was adopted. It
was urged that the removal of the

document declared, with agents in

which the abolition of the Public

City administrations were declar

housing conditions that might exist
within their cities. As the guardians
of the interests of the city people,
they were declared also to be duty
bound to do their best to prevent
rent gouging, profiteering, etc.

resolution in which it was declared
that as a democratic measure this
country was bound to support it.

war prisoners received the approval
of the delegates. In the resolution,
introduced by Miss Pauline New
man, of Philadelphia, the release of
these persons, "languishing In the
Jails of the country," was urged
since the war has been ended. It
was pointed out that other countries
had taken similar action.
The organization went on record
as favoring the reduction of hours
rather than the reduction of forces
in cases of industrial depression
when it becomes necessary to curtail
production. The resolution pointed
out that specific Information was at
hand that Industries of the State at
times created artificial periods of
depression In order to secure speci

and longer hours. The resolution pro

The officers of the State Federa

expenses by railroad managers for
what was termed the purpose of
proving government control of the
railroads unsuccessful. Tt was de

Not Enough Tickets
For 28th Division Review
Clarence O. Backenstoss, secretary to
Mayor Ketster, to-day expresses his
regret that every Harrisburger who ap
plied for grandstand tickets for the re
view of the 28th Division in Philadel
phia could not be accommodated by the
Philadelphia committee. Mr. Backen
stoss had charge of the work for this
city and conferred three times with the
committee in Philadelphia.
Tickets were mailed direct from
Philadelphia and the demand evidently
was larger than the supply on hand.
Hundreds of Harrisburg people left the
city early to-day for Philadelphia.
Scores were without tickets to grand
stands but were willing to stand in honor
of the marching hosts.
Word has been received by Mr. and
Mrs. D. M. Esworthy, of 2313 Derry

Dr. Edwards, a well-known physician
in Ohio, perfected a vegetable com

Buy Coal
this spring
Prevent Shortage
next winter
Remember the coal famine of 1917-18. The
reason we have been advising coal buyers to lay in
their winter's supply without delay is because} we
know conditions that prevail at the coal mines
the source of the supply.
So far this spring there has been mined little
more than half the normal production of coal. The
talk, therefore, of coal shortage next winter is not
a myth, but will become a stern reality unless buyers
take their coal from now on, and keep up a steady
demand, which in turn will cause steady production.
If householders wait, as many used to, the
chances are they will regret it when cold weather
comes again. Labor and transportation will not be
able to meet the winter demand should Consumers
"hold off" ordering until later.
These advertisements are costly. Our
whole object in using space in the daily
papers is to prevent a serious situation for
Harrisburg and for you. Phone us your
