Bill in House to Curb Prof
iteering Is Subject of
Windy Discussion
Washington, Aug. 13.—The forth
coming bill to curb profiteering in
the United States could be disposed
of promptly in the House of Repre
sentatives but for the desire on the
part of from 150 to 200 of the 435
members of that body to take part
in the discussion.
A special rule limits merely the
general debate, but when a measure
is taken up under the five-minute
rule, and when amendments are in
order, that is the great opportunity
for the new and inexperienced Con
gressman to get in his work, and in
these latter days he would simply
"bust" wide open if he did not man
age to edge in so that he could pad
his remarks and make it appear to
the voters of his district that he had
a leading hand in putting through
legislation for reducing the high cost
of living.
If the bill being considered in
committee by veteran legislators is
to be speedily passed it is realized
by the leaders of the House, both
Democrats and Republicans, that an
unusually drastic special rule will
have to be reported and adopted for
shutting off tho flow of talk.

at Reduced Prices
in Police Stations
Philadelphia. Aug. 13.—Director
Joseph S. MacLaughlin, chairman of
the market commission, announced
yesterday that tho commission is
planning to sell bread, fresh fish and
vegetables at ail the police stations
in the city.
"As soon as we find that the sale
of government stocks at cost is a
success," said Mr. MacLaughlin, "we
are going to put this new plan in
operation. Already two of the larg
est bakeries in town have consented
to sell us bread at a rate which will
enable us to dispose of it at two
cents a loaf less than the usual price I
at the stores. Similar offers have!
been made by a number of fish and
vegetable wholesalers."
