Packer Representative Warns
Senate Agricultural Com
mittee at Hearings
By Associated. Press.
Wasliington, Aug. 26. —"Unless we
can be assured of mora, efficient and
economical governmental control
than was the case with the rail
roads the telegraph and telephone
companies, neither the producer nor
consumer can hope to benefit from
such legislation," Everett C. Brown,
president of the National Livestock
Exchange, which is composed of
stockyard brokers, told the Senate
Agricultural Committee to-day. The
witness appeared in opposition to
the Kenyon and Kendrick bills, pro
posing license regulation of the
packing industry and transfer of
refrigerator cars and stockyards.
Mr. Brown took exception to tes
timony given before the committee
by Federal Trade Commissioner
Colver, and remarked that "in our
great industry it has seemed more :
proper to speak of the 'tirade' com- f
mission than the trade commission."
Refrigerator cor development, Mr.
Brown classes, "as a bright spot in
the history of the packing indus
try," and urged caution in legislat
ing upon their use.
Against Licenses
"The federal control act gave the
railroad administration the right to
take over these cars, but thev care
fully refrained from doing so," he
"The Interstate Commerce Com
mission after careful study con
fessed that only inefficiency could
result from turning the cars over io
the railroads."
Ownership of the stockyards b>
the packers, Mr. Brown said, was
not a cause for objection by ship
pers so long as competition was
maintained and yard charges were
"If, in the face of many protests,
Congress in its wisdom elects to dis
turb this industry." he said, in con
cluding. "I respectfully urge that
new laws defining what shall con
stitute crimes and misdemeanors,
and providing punishment therefore
would be more effective than the li
censing system.
"If the licensing system must, i
as a last resort, be adopted, the |
commission men acting solely as the ,
direct agent of the producer, should j
be exempted. If regulation must
come, let it be by a commission not I
the present Federal Trade Commis- '
sion. Do not interfere with refrig- !
erator cars unless and until a better |
method of distribution is devised." |

i Annual Picnic Brings Forth
Big Industrial and Auto
mobile Exhibit
Large crowds are attending the
Farmers' and Industrial Exhibition
being held tills week at Williams
Grove, together with an automobilo
i The exhibitiou this year is one
of the largest in this part of the
State and some of the latest Im
proved machinery is on display and
being demonstrated. Thousands of
persons, some of them coming long
distances, have witnessed the exhi- !
bitions and still larger crowds are
expected before the end of the week.
The automobile show includes
many of the new model cars, both
touring and rounabout types, and
the salesmen are demonstrating to
many persons.
New Models Arrive
Two new models of popular cars
have arrived and will be on exhibit
ion in the summer automobile show
the balance of the week. These
two new models are the Overland
:4. and the Reo light 6. Both of
these cars have been awaited with
keen interest among automobile
owners and presnective owners.
They are both new designs from
the latest manufacturers of pas
senger cars in the country. While
no announcement of these models
have been made locally, consider
able interest has been shown
through newspaper announcements,
and also through the dealers who j
have been expecting them for some
The new Overland 4 represents
what is said to be the ideal light
car. It is the result of extensive
tests made by the Overland company
and is perfected to that point where
everything has been eliminated that
added extra weight, yet is compact
and easily accessible. Only the
chassis for show purposes is here
but this gives a splendid idea of
what the car will be. A new de
parture shown on this model is the
three point spring suspension. An
other inovation of the Overland Is
the moving of the transmission from
the rear of the propeller shaft up
to just in the rear of the clutch, lit
fact, the motor, the clutch, the
transmission and the universal joint
now form one unit in the new model,
all being oiled by one system. An
. other point shown on the new model
is the elimination of a large number
|of grease cups. There are a few
remaining which are easily access
|ihle. A few oil cups are also used.
■ The wheel base of the new model
•is 100 inches and the spring sus
| pension base is 130 inches. This
chassis is now being shown at Wil
liams Grove.
I The new Reo light 6 is attract
ing much interest as the Overland.
I Like the Overland, it too is a light
j weight car of the six cylinder type,
I yet nothing lias been sacrificed that
would hurt the splendid record made
by previous models of the Reo for
durability. In Tact, the new model,
made of special test steel, light in
weight, yet very endurable is expect
ed to even outdo all previous'model*
from the point of endurance. The
seven passenger model is now a part
of history, the new one betag a five
passenger model. Tt has the full
Stream line body effect and a new
radiator design. All the other fea
i tures are distinctively Reo. The
motor is practically the same de
sign., as is also the trnj>gmission and
rear construction. Shipments 1 .if
these cars are expected daily. The
i one now here was driven in from
| the factory by 'George MeFarland,
| President of the Harrisburg Auto
! mobile Company, so that it can be.
.shown at the summer automobile
show at Williams Grove.

Mondell Pleads For Farm
Land For Veterans of War
Washington, Aug. 27. Republi
can Leader Mondell outlined to the
House late yesterday the provisions
of his bill embodying.*. Secretary
Lane's project for farms for soldiers
and sailors. He said the measure
had the support of soldier and
labor organizations and should be
enacted without delay.
Opposition that has developed,
Mr. Mondell said, has its origin
largely in the assumption that legis
lation should benefit soldiers of the
Spanish and Civil wars as well as
those of the great war.
"Payment of a paltry bonus to dis
charged soldiers is not in keeping
with the dignity of this country,"
said the speaker. "The idea that
every valiant young American, rich
or poor, is to have the sum of his
patriotism coldly calculated and
doled out in a way that would be
of little permanent value to him is so
repugnant to every thinking person,
soldier or civilian, that it is not en
titled to serious consideration, and
yet it has been urged as a substi
tute for a sound measure of oppor
tunity and development such as we
have before us."
Charleston, W. Va., Aug. 27.
The DuPont Chemical Company has
expressed its intention of putting

housing accommodations for 20,000
persons. Government agents re
cently announced that the town will
be sold in its entirety to the highest
b'dder. Bids are to be placed with
the Salvaging Department at Phila
delphia early in September. Nitro
was built by the Government at a
cost of $70,000,000.
Woman Lawyer Declares
Some Bills Before Congress
Are Bad
New York, Aug. 27.—Declaring
that some of the national legis
lation aimed at high food prices
leads the way to a Czar-like dy
nasty in this country, Mies Mary
Potter, of New York, pioneer wom
an lawyer and suffragist, in an in
terview yesterday, urged women
voters of America to interest them
selves in the whole problem of the
high cost of living and to find a
practical solution.
Mies Potter, who has been a
practicing attorney in New York
for twenty years, is one of the
founders of the Woman's City Club
of New York. High prices are one
of the greatest menaces this country
! faces at the present time, Miss Pot
ter declared.
"Many women vote now—all of
us will vote soon," she said, "and
every one of us can regulate this
high cost of living problem through
our ballots. As the first intelligent
step in this direction, I believe in
studying the provisions of the dif
ferent billsnow before Congress and
then trying to form an intelligent
opinion as to the effect of legisla
tion on the consumer.
Take the Kenyon bill now before
Congress as a type of legislation
which is aimed, supposedly, at low
ering the cost of food. As-a matter
of fact, this bill will keep prices as
high as they are now and may even
ultimately force them higher. Every
woman, every housekeeper, should
study the provisions of this hill as
it effects her directly and the mar
ket basket she seeks every day to
keep witll filled for her family."
Miss Potter believes that women
have a great responsibility as
voters, a responsibility that women
of all the states will soon actively
share. "Women voters should work
against radical changes such as
this, she declared. "We must keep
Socialism out of our legislation and
must prevent the giving of sweep
ing, arbitrary powers to any indi
vidual, be he president or cabinet
