Questions involving the woman

General Appropriation Meas
ure Will Be Reported to
the House Tonight
The general appropriation bill
carrying the funds to operate the
State government for the next two
years will total less than $40,000,000
when it reaches the House of Rep
resentatives to-night. The bill will
be reported out on third reading
with the largest sum ever carried
by any similar bill and representing
cuts of over $3,000,000 since the
bill was introduced. The final con
ferences on the bill are scheduled
for late in the afternoon and it is
expected that it will take a day or
more to print the bill after it has
been reported out.
The plan is to report all Senate
bills carrying apropriations now in
the House committee immediately
and very few, if any, changes will be
made. There will also be reports on
the bills for colleges, mothers' pen
sions and similar measures which
have been under consideration.
When they are reported out very
few additional bills will leave the
appropriations committee of the
House. The Senate will push out
the remaining appropriation bills in
the hands of its committee on ap
propriations within the next few

bills are passed.

to reduce the Item for In Tease of
salary for teachers. It Is estimated
that It will take something like
three and a half million dollars a
year of State funds to "meet this ad
vance, but the Governor holds that
the teachers have earned it and that
he will not stand for any decrease.
He said that the teachers' salary
increase goes.
"It will be useless," said the Gov
ernor, "for any person to urge me
to cut down on the allowances
planned for increased salaries for
school tacbers. I think it would sur
prise people generally to know what
repeated efTorts have been made this
last week to have the funds for
teachers' salaries reduced.
"Persons connected with prom
inent charities have begged me to
sacrifice the teachers so they might
get larger appropriations for their
pet plans. Pressure has also been
constant upon me from other
sources and I have been obliged to
take a positive stand. I will not
see another person who wished to
have the teachers' salaries pared
down. I have determined that $6,-
000,000 is the irreduceable minimum
of appropriation for the teachers
•and it may be more if any way can
be found."
The Governor was in communica
tion to-day with several members of
the appropriation committee and
with other influential members of
both House and Senate. He makes
no secret of the fact that during the
next two weeks \V. T. Ramsey, of
Chester, will not be called upon to
act as administration floor leader.
Mr. Ramsey has been referred to as
the floor leader during this session.
JUNE 16, 1919,
but It has been seldom that he has
been called upon.
The Governor's break with Mr.
Ramsey is said to have been the
result of the latter's action last
week In trying to amend the Datx-
Brady registration board ripper so
that the present members of the
board could serve out their terms.
Governor Sproul had expressly an
nounced himself as being deter
mined to shake up the board and
when Mr. Ramsey begun urging the
amendment many of the administra
tion followers were puzzled. Finally
Mr. Ramsey was asked directly if
the amendment was an administra
tion measure. He said he did not
get it from the Governor.
Governor Sproul says he met Mr.
Ramsey upon the street in Chester
yesterday and that they had a chat.
The Governor made it clear, how
ever, that his wishes hereafter will
be represented by some other repre
sentative. Hugh A. Dawson, of
Scranton, will likely be the man.
