That committee recommended that the union leaders negotiate the "beat possible" agreement with the mine owners. The committee also urged nil resolutions not yet acted upon be left in the hands of the scale committee for consideration during the dealings with the operators. Today those who led the light against the committee's report still Insisted thev had not changed their views. They included Vincent Trettis of local union No. 113S. and Edward Me- Crone of a Scranton local. John Mates of Williamstown. board membei of district 9. one of the few defenders of the scale committee's report, .was quoted as believing that a quick solution will be found. Delegate Thomas Horan of Locust- vill- declared that the miners knew very little about the last contract negotiated between the union and operators, and he belevcs that the forthcoming negotiations should be cloaked in no such mystery. It was the latter clause dealing with resolutions that caused the convention to rise against the administration forces of international President John L. Lewis. The committee's report was rejected in whole, and that body was instructed to hold up further recommendations until all the resolutions had been openly discussed on the floor. As the convention resumed deliberations today, however, union leaders and the rank and file were of the opinion that any attempt to consider the more than 370 resolutions separately may prolong the sessions for at least another week. This schedule would, it is admitted, add an unexpected delay to the opening o£ negotiations with the anthracite operators. Business men, civic agencies and other interested parties in the anthracite region desire that the forthcoming wage scale negotiations be undertaken as quickly as possible for the benefit of the industry and the economic welfare of the region. Administration leaders intimated that some compromise plan may be expected today or tomorrow that will permit the convention to satisfy the delegates that their resolutions will be properly considered in all dealings with the operators. President Lewis has remained the convention city during the week-end adjournment, not•withstanding his desire to return to the west where he is involved in a court case over union affairs. Lewis has declared that he will remain on the ground until the present crisis 1s past. DAYIS AND BROWN VERY OPTIMISTIC By T. J. O'COXXELL Staff Correspondent.

From Mauch Chunk the party will -take to automobiles and continua»their tour of eastern Pennsylvania, which •will end with a mass meeting at the armory in Scranton Saturday night. "Our reception every place we visited was all that could be desired," Brown said today in commenting on the western trip. "We were greatly encouraged by the attitude of the voters and I am more confident than ever that we are going to win a smashing victory at the polls on May 20. "The encouragement we received came .not only from those who attended the big meetings of the trip, but also from the citizens we met as we •went from place to place. Everywhere •we were treated with the greatest kindness and consideration and at no point did anything occur to discourage our belief in victory for all the can- didatea on our ticket." Joseph N. Mackrell, register of wills of Allegheny county, and western manager of the Davis-Brown campaign, was equally enthusiastic over the prospects in that section as the result of last week's tour. "Our tour of the western counties would convince the most doubting that our ticket is going to run much stronger than any so-called organization ticket in many years," Mackrell said in a long distance telephone call .to state headquarters here today. The meetings In Monessen, Monongahela City, and the tremendous outpouring in Washington arc sure harbingers of a sustained, healthy interest in the Davis-Brown ticket in western Pennsylvania." State headquarters announced today that a fractured ankle, a recurrence of an old injury received in the Alps, will keep Congressman James M. Beck out of the primary campaign so far as stumping for the Davis-Brown ticket is concerned. It will not, however, prevent his speaking over the radio and on May 14 he will discuss the campaign issues over station WCAU. Congratulations were still pouring into the Davis-Brown headquarters today on William S. Vare's campaign address over the radio last Saturday night. Vare's address was received enthusiastically everywhere, according to the reports, and it is believed here to have considerably stemmed the de fections to the wet ticket in Philadelphia. shabby things with gay colors/ Berry's Brushing Lacquer r» the key to beauty in home surroundings The rich artistic colors it produces provide ar; interesting and profitab e experience, and because these lacquers require no expert skill to apply, then successful use is an easy possibility for anyone.

GRIFFITH CO. 905-Green Ave, MARYLAND FOREST FIRES DESTROY MUCH PROPERTY HAGERSTOWN, Md., May 5.—More than 100 men under the supervision of C. C. Klein of Frederick county, district flre warden, are battling four forest fires raging in the vicinities of Black Rock, Middle Point, Highland and Catoctin. It is estimated that 2,000 acres of timberland have already been burned over. Property on Salamander flat, where the Frederick municipal water plant Is located, was threatened yesterday when a large flre was discovered nearby. Fifty firefighters are also battling a blaze near Wolfsville. It is reported that all the fires are of Incendiary origin. NEW YORK TAXI DRIVERS HAD EXPENSIVE JOURNEY PITTSBURGH, May 5.—Two genele- men who operate a taxicab in New York know now why "gentlemen pre$96.20 taxi fare for the fer blondes"—but it cost them a $96.20 taxi fare for the knowledge. When a brunette beauty hired James J. Metzner and' his assistant to drive her to Youngstown, O., they not only bought her meals en route, but when eshe left the cab at Pittsburgh to "phone ahead so the money would be ready," they obligingly waited in the machine. But the Youngstown, O., girl who was amazingly familiar with Pittsburgh, slipped out a side-door of the hotel and successfully dodged the Gotham gentlemen, who toured the city for hours in quest of their fair fare. SCOUT OFFICIALS OPERATE BOROUGH CLEARFIELD, May 6.—Clearfleld borough on Saturday had a new burgess, police officers, health board, school board, street commissioners, Justice of the peace and borough engineer, the burgess and other borough officers handing over their authority to Boy Scouts, troop No. 2, for the afternoon Shortly after 1 o'clock troop No. 2 assembled at the courthouse, where the ceremonies of being Inducted Into the various offices took place, Burgess Hagerty administering the oath of office to those designated and giving them a talk on their 'respective duties. Following this A. M. Pearce, chairman of the troop committee, invested Scout Lynn Goodman with the badge of an Eagle scout, the highest rank In scouting. Young Goodman Is IT years of age and the son of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Goodman of Willlamsport, former residents of Clearfleld. He continued his residence here at tho home of Blake Owens in order to complete liis senior year at the Weal High school, being one of the graduates this vear. He joined troop No. 2 Sept. 30, 1928, and has reached the Eagle scout rank In eighteen months, having been awarded thirty-three merit 'badges, twelve more than the required number. . . Official cognizance was then made of the splendid work of troop No. 2 in erecting the marker "Clearlleld" on Coal hill. It is of considerable value to the airmen and tourists, who at a glance may easily .detect the white letters. Pilot Henry J. Brown, veteran air mail pilot, 'stated it was one of the best markers on the New York- Cleveland air route. The marker is 156 feet long, the letters' being 20 feet high by 13 feet; wide, while the body of the lines composing the letters is three feet wide. The boys spent four afternoons in constructing it. The roster of borough offices filled by troop No. 2 Saturday afternoon, is as follows: Burgess, Jack Smith; police, Dick Stewart, Bill Bentz, Jack Arnold; justice of the peace, Bob Hunter; health officers, Don Fulton, Wallace Austin; street commissioners, Bob Decker, Emerson Shaw; borough engineer, Dan Arnold; councilmen, Bill Kline, president; Louis Pearce, secretary; James Black, Kenneth Rowles, Floyd Read, Jim Maxwell, Ashley Woolridge, Felix Siebenrock, Orvia Undercoffer, James Bickford and Harry Beaver; school directors, Bob Shull, president; Bob Davis, secretary; Bill Bloom, Joe Bentz, Russell Williams, Thomas Jury, Alex Reed, John Shively, Eugene Barney, Bob Kester and Jack Shaw. Clearfleld is justly proud of the able manner in which the scouts handled the jobs assigned them Saturday afternoon, and feel they have capable executives to call upon in case they ever need them.

PITTSBURGH, May 6.—Forest fires which have bee,n raging for several weeks continued over the week-end in western Pennsylvania with thousands of dollars of damage<reported .
