Declare They Must Be Given
"Ample Margin of Pro
Havana, Oct. 20. A manifesto
'issued by the organizing committee
of the recently formed Cuban Sugar
Manufacturers' and Planters' Asso
ciation addressed to the American
people and press, demands an open
market for its product. .
The association protests against
any attempt arbitrarily to restrict
sugar prices, and declares that if
Cuba cannot obtain adequate prices
or is not given "an ample margin of
protection" decreased production of
sugar automatically will take place,
thus presenting a serious danger to
all nations.
"Wo protest before the American
people in the friendliest spirit, but
with all the firmness which fche pos
sibility of such an injustice calls for,
willing that our claims he adjudged
by the great nation which came to
our rescue in a cause of justice and
liberty and to whom we are bound
by ties of gratitude and affection,"
the manifesto says.
"The Cuban producers willingly
agreed during the war to the regu
lations suggested by the United
States, while realizing that they were
giving up an opportunity to obtain
double prices In an open market,
even though general conditions were
unfavorable, with uncertain wage
conditions, scarcity of labor and in
creasing cost of comm iti'-s."
The manifesto complains that the
Cuban producers did not participate
in the $30,000,000 reserve accumu
lated by the Sugar Equalization
Board and points out thut the in
crease in the price of sugar is not
in proportion to the increase in the
cost of general articles of consump
tion imported into Cuba.
Sugar Shortage Gets
Worse, Senate Is Told
Washington. Oct. 20. No relief
from the present sugar situation is
in sight and the probabilities are
that conditions will become worse,
the Senate Agriculture Committee
was told by Dr. Alonzo Taylor of
the Department of Agriculture.
Consumption has increased about
18 per cent, compared with last year
Dr. Taylor said, due largely to in
creased manufacture of candy and
soft drinks to satisfjl a den-fond re
sulting from prohibition. Other
causes given by the witness were a
rebound from wartime repression
and extravagance due to prosperity.
Dr. Taylor told the committee the
price of sugar had nothing to do with
consumption in the United States as
the people were engaged in an "orgy
of spending" and were not trying to

gram outlined at the State convention

Mr. Murdock is well known to
Pennsylvania Legionaires, as he was
acting state chairman during the con
vention here. He .filled the office of
chairman in a most efficient manner,
and it wap largely duo to his efforts
that the delegates were able to put
over the large amount of business
which was handled at the conven
tion. Commissioned with the rank of
major to handle the selective draft in
Pennsylvania Mr. Murdock provided
the military service of this country
with a number oiSmen exceeded by
only one other State.

very active during the Legion con
vention. He is connected with the
Philadelphia Inquirer.

many opinions received at Legion

uy at the Minneapolis Convention

The State of Pennsylvania is re
quired to rebuild a bridge damaged
by flood or fire after having been
once rebuilt by the State, according
to an opinion given to Thomas E.
Templeton, superintendent of public
grounds and buildings, by Deputy
Attorney General William M. Har
gest. The bridga in question is
Knoxville bridge Over the Cowan
esque in Tioga county. The State
rebuilt it in 1916 after destruction
by flood and this year another flood
destroyed the south abutment and
one wingwall. The legal. depart
ment held that the latter condition
constitutes a situation where the
State must rebuild and cites the
Kunkel opinion in the Catawissa
bridge where two spans were de
stroyed and the court held that the
State must rebuild. Mr. Hargest
refers at length to the report of
Charles E. Covert, of this city, who
made the inspection for Mr. Temidc
ton and to the report of Willis
Whited, engineer of bridges of the
State Highway Department, as estab
lishing the conditions. /

The Philadelphia Inquirer of yes
terday had this to say about the new
colonels of the National Guard:
"Now that the list of regimental
commanders of the newly-reorganized
National Guard of Pennsylvania has
been announced, great satisfaction
has been expressed everywhere at the
selection of the men, there fitness for
the positions their war records and
their all-round ability. Officers and
men alike who served under the new
ly-named regimental commanders
both )n the National Guard and in
Federal service in Franc©, are highly
pleased and say that with such men
as these as leaders the reorganiza
tion of the Guard is bound to be a
success.. There is not a man recom
mended for executive position by Ma
jor General William G. Price, Jr., but
who has been thoroughly tried out
and put through the test as a soldier,
a tactician, as an organizer and as a
man among men. Never before in the
history ot the National Guard has
such a brilliant list of colonels ever
commanded regiments In this State."

Dr. Finegan Urges That It Be
Adopted For Country
Schools Friday
Observance of next Friday, Oc
tober 24, not only as Arbor Day and
a day for taking fresh steps for in
creasing the number of trees and
protecting those which stand and
also for conservation of wild life,
but as the first recognition of "Rural
Life Day, was suggested to-day by
Dr. Thomas E. Finegan, the State
Superintendent of Public Instruc
Dr. Finegan suggests that school
boards take steps to bring this day
to attention of their public and that
good roads advocates may unite with
health authorities and the Red Cross
in launching movements f6r better
ment of life in the country.
The Superintendent says:
"This is an opportune time
to inaugurate the observance of
a Rural Life Day. The Autumn
Arbor Day and Bird Day will
occur October 24 next. School
boards throughout the rural sec
tions of the State would do well
to request all the schools to en
large the functions of this day
and consider not only the con
servation of the natural re
sources of the State but also to
consider all the questions in
volved in making the rural dis-'
tricts more attractive and de
sirable for those who live In
such sections. The needs of the
school might be made one of
the principal features to be
con idered and those interested
in the school might devise plans
to show how the school could
be impfrffved, how it could be
made to serve more completely
the needs of the agricultural in
terests, how the buildings and
grounds could be improved and
made as modern, convenient and
attractive as the homes in the
district which the school serves.
Good roads are an asset to good
schools and those who support
the school might very appro
priately consider the improve
ment of all roads which lead to
the school house. School boards
will find that the Grange, Farm
Bureau and other organizations
directly interested in the im
provement of rural conditions
will cheerfully co-operate in a
movement of this mind. There
Is no question of more concern
to those who live in the rural
sections than the question of
health. The health authorities
and the Red Cross will also
cordially co-operate in this lar
ger movement for the improve
ment of rural conditions if the
opportunity is afforded them.
