Six-Hour Day and Sixty Per
Cent. Wage Increase Also
Wilkcs-Barre, Pa., Aug. 21.
Addressing the tri-district conven
tion of the United Mine Workers
here yesterday, William Green, sec
retary-treasurer of the organization,
declared that the chief demands of
the miners next April will be for
a closed shop, a six-hour work day
and an increase in wages of about
60 per cent.
There will be minor demands but
the hope of the miners is based on
a closed shop. "We want every man
to join the union." said Mr. Green,
"as the closed shop is the only way
we will get what we want."
He declared that mine workers
believe they can produce as much
coal in a shorter work day as they
are producing in an eight-hour day.
John L. Lewis, acting president of
the International organization, is
presiding at th i convention but he
called upon Green to define the
aims of the organization.
A scale committee has been named
and the scale for 1920 will prob
ably be reported to the convention.
Try the New Way—No Pain, No
Fuss—Just Solid Comfort.
In one minute after an application
of Dash Balm you'll get the surprise
of your life. Your tired, tender,
smarting, burning" feet will literally
jump for joy.
Dash Balm is easy and simple to
use. No fuss, no trouble; you just ap
ply it over the surface of the foot
night and morning, or when occasion
requires. Just a little and rub it in.
It's simply wonderful the way it
ends all foot misery, while for feet
that sweat and give off an offensive
odor, there's nothing better in the
IMPORTANT —It is not necessary
to use the balm unless there is a good
deal of soreness and inilammation. In
most cases Hush Antiseptic Powder
sprinkled between the toes and in
the sock or stocking will usually be
found sufficient.
Most dealers can supply you, but if
not don't accept a substitute. We will
gladly send either. Mall charges paid
on receipt of 35 cents, silver or
stamps. Allan J. Dash Manufacturing

Tentative Program Arranged
For Afternoon River
Pinal plans for the canoe races,
tilting contests and other boat
events which will be features of
Kipona, on the Susquehanna, Labor
Day, will be formulated at a meet
ing of Harrisburg canoeists to-moi
row evening on the upper deck of
George K. Reist's boathouse, at the
foot of South street.
A census of canoe owners id
Harrisburg yesterday developed the
fact that there are more than 600
canoe owners in this city and Ir i
Kindler, chairman of the committee
in charge of canoe contests, is cer
tain that every canoe will be on the
river Labor Day.
Chairman Kindler has arranged
a tentative plan of events for the
afternoon, which includes a halt
mile race' for men, singles; half
mile mixed and male doubles; quar
ter-niile doubles for girls; quarter
mile obstacle race, a tilting contest
and two war canoe races, one be
tween teams representing Tech,
Steelton and the Academy and the
other between teams representing
the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs and
the Chamber of Commerce. This
program will be submitted for the
approval of the canoeists to-morrow
Steelton on Hand
Raymond Suydam, of the Steel
ton Canoe Club, assured Chairman
Kindler last evening that the Steel
ton Club would be on hand with a
big bunch of contestants in the
various canoe events. The Steelton
High school war canoe team is being
selected and will start practice
cruises in a few days. All three of
the big war canoes have been over
hauled and are now at the Reiat
boathouse, where any of the teams
may obtain them for practice cruis
ing. Chairman Kindler will assign
coaches to any of the teams upon
Entry blanks are being printed
to-day and will be distributed to the
various boatliouses and sporting
goods stores in the city. Every
canoeist is urged to get his entry
blank and file his entry for the vari
ous events promptly so that the pro
gram may be completed.
Plan Decorations
Arrangements have been com
pleted by the committee so that
every canoe on the river during
Kipona will be properly decorated.
At Dintaman's and Reist's boat
houses a supply of standards and
Japanese lanterns will be placed
for distribution to those canoeists
who do not care to decorate their
own canoes. The standard decora
tions include two poles and four
lanterns and every canoeist will be
required to carry these lights in or
der that the course may be made
perfectly safe.
No canoeist, however, need use the
decorations provided by the commit
tee if he desires to enter the con
test for the best decorated canoe.
Already several score of canoeists
are planning their entry for the big
Kipona cup that will go to the own
er of the best decorated boat on
the river.
More than 100 singers were pres
ent at last evening's rehearsal un
der the direction of Mrs. Florence
Ackley Ley, held at Fahnestocl:
hall. This big chorus will sing dur
ing the historical pageant in the
evening celebration.
U. S. Intervention in
Mexico Certain, View
Held by Congressmen
Washington, D. C., Aug 21. A
program of singifieant silence rein
forced the wetchful waiting policy
of the administration. Aside from
making public telegrams received
from General Dickman at Fort Sam
Houston, Texas, reporting the move
ment of the punitive expedition into
Mexico, there was no comment forth
coming from either the War or State
Departments on the situation.
As indicated by officials yesterday
the administration is taking the at
titude that a punitive expedition is
no variation from routine which can
be interpreted as a step toward in
tervention, and that when the ex
pedition returns across the Rio
Grande, the incident will become a
closed chapter in diplomatic records
This is not the view held in Con
gress, where the impression pre
vailed that) Intervention is only a
question of time with each new inci
dent of the kind which has required
the latest punitive expedition, adding
I more fuel to the flames.
