OPEN SUNDAHT ATLANTIC
Mayor at Famous Rosort Asks Commis
sion to Assess Only Nominal Fines
Against Amusement Owners
Atlantic City, Feb. 5. —A move to
throw Atlantic City "wide open" on
Sunday for all kinds of amusements was
made yesterday when flavor Kiddle in
troduced a bill to amend the municipal
vice and immorality act. It provides a
nominal penalty of $1 for Sunday base
ball and all forms of amusement and
diversion forbidden by the present or
dinance. The latter carries an optional
penalty of not less than $lO nor more
It cannot be moved for two weeks,
and may not be called up for a much
longer time, as Mayor Riddle leaves ou
Saturday for Havana and a-tour of the
South. He will be gone for at least a
loiter in yesterday's session tho
Mayor hurled a final broadside a't the
forces at war with him over Sunday
tango, carnivals, amusements generally
ami liquid refreshments for thirsty
thousands in sihumer. Joseph A. Me-
Nwmee, a bunker, appeared before the
commission to say that, pending a legal
decision in the city treasurership mud
dle, which has suspended Che municipal
bond-issuing capacity, his 'bank is pre
pared to loan from $50,000 to $150,-
000 or even more to the city upon
"Atlantic City is not seriously in
need of money," the Mayor replied
tartly. "Its credit is not affected in
the slightest degree. I have an offer
from a New York bank to tend the
city up to $1,000,000 at 4 per cen't.
But I want to say now that if con
ditions continue as they are there is
going to be a great shortage of money
on the part of next winter.
Our people are not allowed to take the
money away from the people who come
here for pleasure as they used to. They
have cut off our revenue from the
cafes and saloons on Sunday, ami now
they want to close up the amusement
places as well."

TRADE EXPANSION AND THE
EUROPEAN WAR DISCUSSED v
Boston Man Outlines to Chamber of
Commerce Convention How Be
Thought American Business Men
Could Participate in Peace Question
Washington, D. C., Feb. s.—ln _ a
discussion «f tmde expansion and Uio
European war, before the • Chamber o>f
Commerce of the United States in con
vention here to-day, Kdward A. Filene,
of Host on, outlined how he thought
American business men could partici
pate in bringing about pence.
"It becomes apparent then that
great exertion mid great expense for
foreign tmlte e sponsion must be accom
panied by at least equal exertion to
make the terms of settlement of the
present great war such that Europe will
not remain an nrmcd camp.
"As responsible business men we
should ask ourselves: Whwt can we
'business men do, what can the United
States do, to help bring about the
right terms of settlement of tho , war I
| This struggle is so fierce that at pres
ent there seems to be no opportunity
for any outside interference, however
well intended. Moreover, there is ap
parently no chance of peace being made
on any terms within the near future.
Warring Nations Will Make Peace
"The warring nations will not pro
pose terms of peajee until exhaustion or
victory comes. The neutral countries,
although they are seriously affected and
suffer seriously from the effects of tho
war, can havo but little hope that any
proposals they may make will be ac
ceptable now. Tentative attempts in
this direction have failed. The danger
is, therefore, that peace will eventually
be made by the warring nations alouo
and through the saute diplomats Wlut
were not able to prevent this devastat
ing war. If that happens it is almost
inevitable that the terms of settlement
will carry the seeds of the next war,
leave Europe an armed camp nttd will
keep the whole world for years to connv.
so impoverished that low if any conn
tries will bo profitable fields for trade
"May 1 add a word of warning. If
the United States is to have any di
rect influence finally in the terms of set
tlement of the war, such influence will
depend largely on the confidence the
warring nations have in our fairness
| and justice. We must play the game
| straight and not hit below the belt
not try to take unfair advantages of
the present export trade helplessness of
any of the fighting nations.
"But granted that the war is finally
over and the terms of settlement have
been such as will at once or in timo
make all the warring and all tho neu
tral nations better fields for trade ex
pansion yet there are othor funda
mental factors that must be rightly
dealt with before any important perma
nent trade expansion can be ours." ,
Foreign Trade Facilities
Mr. Pilene discussed a multiplicity
of phases of foreign traiilo facilities,
i ocean carriage, banking and credit, in
i surance and the like and then closed
with a summary of his address.
"In brief I have tried to show," he
"I—A method by which we may
help make more certain a settlement
of the war on a basis whiich will not
leave tho world an armed camp with
ever-increasing armaments but which
will result in a more lasting peace and
bo a basis for the greater and more
permanent prosiperity of the inhabitants
of! the warring countries, thus increas
i ing and not diminishing the buying
[ power of tye world,
i "2 —The necessity of just and staple
• conditions of ocean transport, and a
! possible method to insure them.
"3—That a very important part of
- the pioneer work for trade expansion
i must be done by American banks and
bankers. If they are willing to tako
. the risk of such pioneer vrrrrk they are
■ entitled to the practical support of our
> business men and of our government.
"4—A type of new machinery by
• which national trade organizations can
■ very greatly increase the power of all
thefir members to acquire foreign trade.
"s—An improved instrument which
will insure to foreign buyers that thtpy
will get the goods thiey have or.liered
at the time they ha\|o ordered them, or
else a substantial indemnity.
"6—Finally, I have indicated a
quality stamp which will give to the
ultimate consumer assurance that .the
American goods he buys with this
stamp are reliable and trustworthy."
IT RUINS HAIR TO |
WASH IT WITH SOAP
Soap should be used very sparing
ly, if at all, if you want to keep
your hair looking its best. Most
I soaps and prepared shampoos con
tain too much alkali. This dries the
scalp, makes the hair brittle, and
The best thing for steady use is
just ordinary mttlsified cocoanut oil
(which is pure and greaseless), is
cheaper and better than soap or any
thiug else you can use.
One or two teaspoonfuls will
cleanse the hair and scalp thorough
ly. Simply moisten the hair with
water and rub it in. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather,
which rinses out easily, removing
every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff
and excessive oil. The hair dries
quickly and evenly, and it leaves the
scalp soft, and the hair fine and
silky, bright, lustrous, fluffy and
easy to mnnage.
You can get mulsified cocoanut oil
at any pharmacy, and a few ounces
will supply every member of the
family for months.
