Because the men of sclencs are to put the Einstein theory of relativity to its severest test What this test will be was ex plained to NEA Service by professor W, W. Campbell, of Lick Observatory1 who heads the , American ex pedition, Just before he sailed. The American party will make Its observations from the remote 90-mlle- beach . on the northwest coast of Australia. "The thing. Einstein has predat ed," explains Professor Campbell, "is thst during this eclipse certain stars occupying a position in the sky near the sun will seem to be dis placed sllihtly away from the sun. Absoluts, proof , of the, theory can be secured only during; a total eclipse of the suit, for under suoh a condi tion the light, of the sun is hidden and it J then possible to photograph the stsrs In the sun s vicinity, What we are testing Is one of Ciinstem s tnree leading deductions. which Is that the rays of light from distant star undergo a noticeable deflection as they pass near the sun."

(United Press) Government officials In close touch with developments in the Industrial situation "have very good reasons" for believing that the next week or ten days will see settlements of the rail strike effected on a half dozen or more southern and western lines, an administration spokesman said today. Efforts to bring about peace on group of "liberal" lines, he said, are going forward in two directions with prospects bright for success. His statement apparently referfed in part to the activities of Daniel Wil lard, president of ' the B. and O. who Is now In Chjcago arranging conferences with the head of other rosds that have held a "conciliatory attitude lately In the strike. At the same time Attorney Gen eral Daugherty in a formal state ment said that the government would not interfere, under the terms of the Chicago injunction with any meet tngs held for the purpose of discuss lng or negotiating a settlement. The government, however, is not a party to any such negotiations, Daugherty said. . . - The government official said In formation coming to him Indicated that two definite plans of settlement ars being considered by rail exe cutives and strike leaders. These plans, he stated were : practically alike except that in one the executives and strikers would agree to submit all. points of dispute, after operations are resumed to the railroad labor board at Chicago white, in the other such disputes would be put up to a mixed commission of executives and union heads. - ' This latter method of settling i onus OFF TO ATTEND WATERWAY MEET controversies arising after the work ers returned to their Jobs la part of the soheme being advanoed by Wll- lard, aooordlng t Chicago dls patch. In both proposed peace plena, it was said, the strikers would yield on their seniority demands, in that they would not be guaranteed the same ranking as when they quit on June S0 The executive, It ww stated, have stiffened, It anything, during the past tew weeks In their determination to protect the rignts of men employed after the strike started. ' . 1 v Daugherty, in his statement de clared that "suggestions" that peace efforts between union heads and ex ecutives would be Interferred with under th temporary restraining order were '.'wholly unjustiflsd." The only concern of the govern ment." the Attorney-oenerat stated, "is industrial peace and restoration of transportation and all con ferences between the railroad ex ecutives and their former employes to adjust their grievances would not find any obstacle on the part of the government On th other hand, suoh ' eonferencee would have the government's sympathy." ATLANTIC CITT, Sep. (United Press). Th executive oouoeil of the American Federation of Labor convened here today to deolde what action to take "with ; regard to the Daugherty Injunction against the shopmen's snlk. 1 Council members were In an ex ceedingly -hitter . and ' aggressive Snood as they went into session. They made it plain that every effort would be exerted , to nullify the injunction. Daugherty! statement that he would seek a modification of the in junction when he appeared before Judge Wilkerson to make It perma nent was hailed as an admission that constitutional rights had been violated. ; I We will concentrate our fight on government by Injunction," Gompers said, "It is pure despotism." ' Among the other "outstanding Is sues before the council is the ques tion of a general sympathetic strike, a move to Impeach Daugherty for securing the Injunction and a fight against child labor. There is no likelihood of the coun cil recommending a general strlkejn spite of the strong demand WltJMn the organization. ' Labor leaders feel that such a strike would result only In injuring mo general puoiie tnereby el m- tnatlng publlo sympathy. They feel that they can assist the strikers more by lending their moral and fin ancial assistance in carrying on an onensive along political and educational lines. There also anneared little chance for a move to Impeach Daugherty. The leaders are divided on the subject, some holding that the Impeachment proceedings would not succeed and thereby constitute a blow to labors powers. - y (Continued From Vint Pag.) vote for "Miss Cehimbus," Miss Gorman, last year's winner, unfastened large streamer from across hr shouldsr and, with a kiss, p!nnd It on th victor, Th orowd of 11,000 that had assembled to witness th ceremony went wild with delight.

She's not on ofthse fancy cooks, either.- She can get right down to old-fashioned ham and cabbage if she's a mind to. And she has another distinction.
