14 THE ALTOONA MIRROR—TUESDAY. NOVEMBER 12, 1929 LONG-TALKED OF ALLIANCE IS REAL Err or grams By PAt'I, 11. Staff (Jorreflpondentv 'WASHINGTON, n. c., NOV. 12.—The long talked of alliance between the dry, farming, Protestant west of the Republican party and the dry, farming Protestant .south of tho. Democratic party has become a reality for at least the durnlion of the tariff bill discussion in the United .Stales .senate. The deep-rooted situation which has brought the common interests of these •two factions into leadership of the senate already is causing talk in Washington as to its possible effects upon the congressional elect ions next year and thu distant presidential election of 1932. . j It has been suggested privately by men in authority In the two groups that they should consider a common presidential candidate. The name of Senator William E. Borah of Idaho, is being mentioned, to run with a southern Democratic vice presidential candidate such n» Senator Walter F. George of Georgia. While leaders of both tho welded tariff groups say such suggestions (ire. madn prematurely by their visionary lieutenants, they are. looking In a practical wny toward continuance of the coalition for tho legislative problem! which will arise in this regular session of emigres*. These include such measures of common Interest, an the case of ousting Senator-elect. William S. Vare of Pennsylvania, prohibition enforcement appropriations in the treasury appropriation bill, and legislation "to regulate the activities of lobbyists. The coalition has been working together in the semit* off and on for last nine years but it has never before been fortified with the vivid sectional interest furnished by the tariff bill In the present senate situation. From twelve to nineteen Republicans of the western regions have joined tho Democrats on almost every vote of Importance and have revised the measure so radically that the eastern Republican senators who wrote It do not recognize It. Together the west and the south control a majority of ten to twenty votes over the east. They have put Into the bill the debenture plan of farm relief, eliminated the flexible provision which enables tho president to increase tariff rates, shaved industrial rates and are preparing to boost agricultural rates. Embittered by tho futility of further lighting the coalition juggernaut, eastern aenati rs lilte Reed of Pennsylvania «nd MOHI-.I of New Hampshire, have Btlrrt'd the senate to strongest sectional debates since reconstruction days. They have called the coalitionists "worse than communists" and "sons of wild j-xckasscs." In turn the ocall- tlonlsta have charged the easterners with collusion with tariff lobbyists and manufacturer:! agents, citing Charles ]_,., Kyanson of the Connecticut Manufacturers association and Joseph R. Grundy of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers association. Both i.'!' tcrnei-H and westerners admit the situation is precarious and I neither is able to forecast when it | may alleviated or what affect It will bring politically. If the tariff bill should die the situation probably would be only further accentuated 'because the tariff relief for suffering eastern Industries and for agriculture would ineet the same fate. Any compromise bill which could be passed would fall to satisfy either side in the opinion of those in control. '•"In light of the situation, observers f iherally believe It will be Impossible pass any bill because of the wide vergence of opposing views. The population of the continental Jnlted States Is now increasing at a ate of approximately 1,400.000 persons >er year, or about one person every 13 seconds. WRIGHT PATRONS HEAR DISCUSSION The regular meeting of the Wright School Mothers club, and Parent- Teacher association, waa held last noon at 3 o'clock, President Mrs. C. J. Yon, presiding. The meeting opened with the Parent-Teacher song. The report of Mrs. Logan Hull, chairman of membership committee, showed 424 members. Miss Winifred Ale, delegate to the Parent-Teacher convention, held nt Somerset on Saturday, Oct. 26, gave a very Interesting report of that meeting. Many patrons and teachers attended the meeting to hear the splendid program which consisted of a discussion on "The Emotional Needs of the Child," etc. Miss Marguerite Magee discussed the emotional needs of the child, stressing his need of security, freedom to grow, companionship and a concrete Ideal embodied In parents. Miss Magee said: "A child needs that security that results from the love of both parents and from harmony In the home. His growth is a stage-to- stage process that should enable a child to become strong, Independent nnd'able to hold his own In the larger world beyond the home. The example of parents Influences the lives of children far more strongly than the admonitions and precepts given by them. Parents should be the type of companion to whom children will relate all their Interests freely, finding sympathy and understanding on the part of parents." Mrs. H. O. Jones discussed "Adult Emotions," emphasizing the necessity of giving a child opportunity to develop his own individuality; the necessity of achieving something that will faV &lon6 without •& d-han^e of (Copyright, 1920, NBA Service, Inc.)

She pointed out the dangers of preconceived notions on the part of parents as to what a child should become. She denounced the use of fear and shame as means of moral discipline, showing fear to be justifiable in the realm of the physical and showing the danger of shame leading to an Inferiority complex.

NEW YORK, Nov. 12.—The failure of the National City—Corn Exchange merger has set a fjood many personH (o Hpeiuilallng if we are to .see a good long paiiHu in the merger trend. If this is so then one powerful Rupport of high stock, prices, will be found mi.MHing. The Hteady Htrenm of rumors of pending mergero—many of them turning out to be true—ha» been a atrong readon for holding up many HtockH. If the merger rumor Is scotched for the time being then the market In minus one of its most active ullmulantH. There have been two kinds of mergers In the market. One of them has been that type dictated by sound economic and bUHlneHS reasons. Tho other typo has been the merger rigged up UH a means of turning over a ncal profit In stocks. It in possible that the Unit of these kinds of mergers will bo In no wise affected by the break—may In fact bo actually facilitated. The second kind will certainly liave to rest awhile on the shelf. The first type of merger is likely to be helped by a normal market. Many wise and desirable mergers have been balked because of the greedy operations of stock speculators who have made the wished for merger a bit too expensive. Now will be an excellent time for several of these mergers to be pushed through. And I know of several Instances where large concerns have taken advantage of the break to accumulate the shares of companies they desired to amalgamate with. The- stock promoting merger is doomed for the time being. And this Is one of the major gains of the present break. These mergers have constitute the largest percentage of those put through in the last three years. Borne of the companies Involved may suffer seriously as a result of the break. Still other mergers are going to be actually forced by the break. One or two have already taken place in tho investment trust Held, because tho market decline had so seriously impaired the Inventory value of their portfolios that they had to seek shelter under the wings of some stronger bird.
