AID SOCIETY HAS MANIFOLD DUTIES County Secretary Reports But One Acceptance During the Month But Others Have Kept Officers on Move. A most winsome little miss and a very unusual child, Intelligent and attractive, was the only child accepted for care by the Children's Aid society during the month of May. Miss Marguerite E. Brown, county secretary, reported, at the monthly meeting of the Children's Aid Society which was held Thursday, May 5, that the number of children under care of the organization decreased from 155 to 147. Of these, 64 are In foster homes, 68 are in institutions and 35 in their own homes. At the end of April, 46 children were pending further investigation and 21 applications were received during May. Minor Service was given three children and relatives assumed the care of 13. Other agencies or Institutions accepted the care of 21 and 3 applications were unwarranted complaints. Immediate action In placing two 'children in the Blair county children's home, was asked because the mother was dead and the children had only one distant relative to care for them. After investigation, It was found that the mothe^ 1 died of tuberculosis. Physical examination and X-rays revealed certain suspicious symptoms of tuberculosis. The fine cooperation received from the doctors and the state tuberculosis clinic made It possible for these children to have treatment at a state sanatorium where the children will have the best physical care. In April, the county secretary attended a round table conference of the Children's Aid society of Pennsylvania In Philadelphia. She reported that a study was made of the foster home investigations and It was very helpful to know the point of view of others working In the same capacity. The approval or disapproval of a foster home rests upon a number of things, including the physical, mental and emotional fitness of the foster home and the parents to care for children. After a child is placed in a homo, very careful supervision is necessary to insure the child the best care possible. When one of the workers recently visited some children, an interested person, who went with her, remarked that she thought when children were placed in a foster home, they were just left there like a new radio or a stove. She was agreeably surprised when she knew the children were under constant supervision. Mrs. Louis C. Madeir and Edwin D. Solenberger, from the main office In Philadelphia; were well pleased with the work done for children in Blair county. They were very much interested in the Blair county children's home and expressed their appreciation of the splendid work that Mr. find Mrs. C. G. Bridenbaugh, superintendent and matron, are doing. R. E. Laramy presided at the meeting and the directors of the board present were Mrs. A, P. W. Johnston, •Mrs. C; O. Johnston, Mrs. May berry Iller, Mrs. Charles Reed and Mrs. Robert Gable. ADDITIONAL DEATHS. MRS. HARRIETT WILT Widow of James Wilt, residing at 603 Eust Sixth avenue, died last night at 7.30 o'clock at her homo of complications of diseases after a lengthy illness.

MINERS AND OPERATORS TO MEET IN CONFERENCE HARRISBURG, June 6.—A conference between anthracite operators and officials of the United Mine Workers of America to negotiate a new wage and Working agreement for the hard coal miners will be held the latter part of June, probably at Atlantic City. Spokesmen for both groups told the United Press today that the conference tentatively called for Juno 9 at Philadelphia had been definitely postponed. The operators, it was learned, have already selected their delegation, but the miners have only picked three representatives to attend the important meeting. Leaders of both sides said It was hoped the confernnce could be held either the week of June 16th or the week of June 23d. Union officials hope to negotiate a new agreement calling for the same pay rate as the anthracite miners now received, and with a modified check on* system for collecting union dues.

THOUSANDS FLEE CITYJ)F TSINAN (Continued from Page 1.) pending attack by Shansi insurgents who are flghttng the Nanking Nationalists. . : It la recalled that Tsinan was the scene of outrages In May, 1928, when the victorious southern forces captured the city and brutally murdered thirty Japanese. The Tanaka government's .policy of despatching Japanese troops to Tsinan then was criticized by the present government party; Hence' political observers now point out that Premier Hamaguchi's problem Is most difficult. He cannot send troopa without reversing hla party's policy, but he will certainly face the overthrow of his cabinet If Japanese In Tsinan are killed because of lack of sufficient protection. The government finds some grounds for hope in the apparent desire of the Shansi leader,. General Yen Hsi-Shlan, to prevent any incident likely to de-= stroy Japanese good will. (Copyright, 1930, by New York Sun.) By D. C. BESS, Staff Correspondent. PEIPING, June 6.—One of the greatest military movements in recent history has been completed with the evacuation of Kansu and Shensi provinces by soldiers in the armies of Marshal Feng Yu-Hsiang, according to V. G. Plymire, an American missionary who paused here for a day or two en route from his station in Dangar, in Koko- nor, on the Tibetan border, to his homo in York, Pa. Plymire, who has worked in Kansu' and Tibet since 1908, and has traveled extensively through these remote regions, said that Feng's men penetrated as far as the Tibetan border, after their sanguinary encounters with the Mohammedans last year, and had garrisons in almost every city. Some of them marched hundreds of miles from the railhead on the Shensi border and back again, fighting hostile Mo- hammedans as they went. But now Kansu and Shensi have been completely evacuated, Plymire said. He estimated that at least 30,000 soldiers had taken part in this movement, and had poured into Honan from Kansu and Shensi since the order for an attack upon General Chiang Kai- Shek had come from Marshal Feng— the so-called "Christian general." Thousands of these soldiers have been on rations of twelve ounces a day," said Plymire, "and I saw many of them abandoned along the road, unable to proceed. But they had fairly good equipment and seemed cheerful. They were looking forward to a better time in Honan and Shantung." The Mohammedans were coming back into Kansu and Shensi cities as rapidly as the Kuominchun armies moved out, Plymire said. The people were satisfied with the change, he asserted, as the Mohammedan chieftains were rather popular. Conditions were almost indescribably bad, Plymire said, as Feng's soldiers took everything they could in order to exist, even then being at the bare subsistence level. Plymire and his wife went through the ordeal of a massacre at Dangar, in which a large part of the town was wiped out, and soon afterward 700 Kuominchun soldiers, badly wounded, were brought into their compound for treatment. Plymire is not a doctor, but had to perform difficult operations because there was no one else to help the soldiers. PLAN FINAL VOTE ON TARIFF BILL BULLETIN. WASHINGTON, D. C., June C.— An Informal agreement on nil except ono of the remaining diH»uted rule scheduled in the tariff bill WHS speedily reached today by house and senate conferees. By NATHAN ROBERTSON Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, D. C., June 6.—A final vote on the Hawley-Smoot tariff bill the latter part of next week, and adjournment of the regular session of congress a few days later, was planned by senate leaders today. Tha possibility the bill might be killed in the senate after congress has spent a year and a half in its preparation, though remote, was the subject of serious speculation as the result of announcements by two 'high tariff Democrats" that they will vote against it. Tha two are Senator Steck, Democrat, Iowa and Copeland, Democrat, New York. Both senators had previously been counted as supporters of the measure. The possibility of a presidential veto of the measure if it passes congress, also was being discussed as a result of the White House statement that the president has an "open mind" regarding it. Nevertheless, congressional leaders were confident the president will sign the bill if it gets to him. It was learned at the White House today that letters are beginning to arrive in protest against, the -tariff bill and urging President Hoover to veto it. It was expected the president's mall will be deluged with additional letters and telegrams when the bill finally is passed and sent to the White House for signature. Republican senate leaders refused to admit publicly there is any chance for the bill to be defeated in that body. They pointed to the big majority by which the bill passed the senate in April before it went to conference, and claimed to be able to master enough Democratic votes to pass the measure again.

Apollo Soucek didn't know, when ho landed at the Anacontla naval air station, Washington, whether he had broken the world's altitude record. But hla altimeter read 42,000 feet, and there was a good chnnco that a check of his sealed baragraph would prove he had beaten the 41,794-foot mark net by Pilot Wllll Nuenhofen of Germany last year. Lieutenant Soucek Is shown above being congratulated by Commander A. H. Douglas*. At left Is a close-up of the daring flier. POWERS OF SENATE COMMITTEEAT STAKE (Continued from Page 1.) testify with respect to campaign expenditures is open to doubt. There has long been a difference of opinion as to just what the power of the senate Is with respect to state elections, and thus far no legislation has been enacted except that which compelled the candidates for federal office to file their respective expense accounts. Bishop Cannon himself was not running for office and is therefore not under the. jurisdiction of any law. The point now is whether activity in the Virginia campaign -on the prohibition issue constituted lobbying In the general sense in which the term ia used in Washington. Bishop Cannon of course did not make matters any better by leaving the committee room in defiance. Usually episodes of this kind are regretted in the end because they tend to focus attention on those who refuse to answer questions and the senate itself has always backed up its committees in their efforts to get at recalcitrant witnesses. Senator Walsh has been known as a dry and it is an extraordinary turn of affairs that he should be the one to investigate the activities of another dry. Mr. Walsh is a Democrat who supported Governor Smith but it is not believed that from the political viewpoint any special advantage is being sought by the Democrats at this time in going back into the history of the 1928 campaign. It is believed on the other hand that Bishop Cannon typifies the relationship of the Methodist church to the dry movement and that Senator Walsh who is up for reelection this year is not averse to the idea of separating the church from any political activity whenever he can do so. Especially since this probably is as pleasing to the wets in Montana as if he had come out on their side. Any hammering of dry leaders is welcomed by the wets. Mr. Walsh has said that if his state in a referendum voted for repeal of the eighteenth amendment he would do likewise. It is not likely that the Cannon episode will be anything more than a momentary flare-up but it is all part, of the effort being made now to break down the political hold of the dry leaders in local elections. It may also serve to define the difference between the rights of a witness in a general investigation for political purposes as distinguished from a witness who is asked to testify concerning specific charges. PRISONERS DINING AT FESTAL BOARD (Continued from Page 1.) accomplished with the aid of prison labor. Until a decade ago prisoners in the jail were fed by the warden who furnished all the foodstuffs at his own expense and collected from the county a sum, agreed upon, for the board of the prisoners. Some years ago there was a change made whereby the warden of the prison was paid a stipulated salary and the county furnished everything, light, heat, fuel, water and foodstuffs. But this entails no change in the manner of service. A number of large tables with comfortable chairs, as well as serving tables, constitute the equipment of the new dining hall and, while in the basement, it is a light and airy room, outside easement windows to the west furnish ample light and ventilation. Prisoners assist with the preparation and serving of the food the quality ot which is well balanced and ample. It is stated, that in addition to more satisfactory service and mqre tasty meals, the final cost of the plan is more economical than the old one. AUTOMOBILES COLLIDE. Cars driven by Ralph D. Kelso of 100 Willow avenue and A. Share collided at 6.25 o'clock last evening at Walnut avenue and First street. Share'* car struck Kelso's on the left side and damaged the latter to the extent of $55. ALTOONA UlSl'ENSAUV. Helen Burk, aged 15, of 122 Second avenue was given treatment at the Altoonu hospital for an injury to the left hand. Russell Plowman, aged 21, of 2308 Union avenue sought treatment in the dispensary for a sprain of the right jtnkle, MANUFACTURER OF GRAHAM CAR HERE Robert C. Graham one of the three Graham brothers, prominent Detroit manufacturers of automobiles bearing their name, was a guest of Lee Knapp, manager of Mlllikan Motors, Wednesday. Mr. Graham as an individual Is as outstanding as the car bearing his name. Although shouldering much of the executive responsibilities of the Graham-Page Motors corporation, he spends much time In various sections of the United States calling on his dealers and owners, for what he desires is first-hand information relative to the satisfaction of their products to the user. He expressed an especial interest in a questionnaire that had been sent to all owners by the local distributors and made It his business to check each one and jot down the addresses of a few whose lack of enthusiam seemed to be questiohable. This phrase of personality is very interesting when one will stop to compare the vast difference in executives heading large corporations, all talking in millions of dollars, yet Mr. Graham, having the interest of every Graham owner at heart while the others are only interested in the initial sales. Mr. Graham also expressed much optimism as to the furture business outlook and stated that if it were possible to continue the volume In export, especially In automobiles, as in other years, conditions in business as a whole will be far better than ever. He also stated that from bankers reports, correspondence with various Chambers of Commerce, and knowledge gained from other reliable sources that this section will no, doubt keep forging ahead during 1920 and should remain outstanding both in employment and general business. Mr. Graham has just returned from a $50,000 mile trip through the United States and Canada and made his visit here an informal one of his New York trip where he spoke at the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce meeting of directors yesterday. ALUMNI TO HONOR RETIRING DEAN The stage is now set for the grand alumni reception to Dr. George D. Robb, retiring principal of the Altoona High school, to be held in the Senior High school auditorium this evening, beginning at 8 o'clock. The event has aroused the interest of the graduates and it is expected that there will be a very large turnout for the tribute to the popular educator who for thirty-seven years presided over the destinies of the institution. The reception will be informal in character and Attorney David Perry, president of the alumni, will preside. Sitting with Dr. Robb on the stage will be a representative from each of the thirty-seven classes, together with James C. Hughes who was president of the school board when Dr. Robb was chosen principal in 1893, and Miss Mary E. Clarkson of this city and Miss Jennie Matthews of Peabody, the other surviving members of the faculty at the beginning of the principal's career. The program will be featured by addresses by Judge Marion D. Patterson, Mayor John J. McMurray and Isaiah Scheeline, together with short talks of a reminiscent character by members of the alumni and songs by Walter McEldowney and Mrs. Elizabeth Caum Moffet. The arrangements for the reception were made by a committee of which Mrs. Edith Oler Flanagan served as chairman. CHILD FALLS FKOM CAU. A child, whose name was not learned, was brought to the office of a Duncansville physician one evening this week for treatment for injuries said to have beon received when the child, wfco was riding alone in the rear part of a closed automobile, opened the door of the machine and fell out onto the highway near Duncansville. After an examination of the injuries, which included a severe scalp laceration, the prompt removal of the child to a hospital was advised. In the excitement which ensued, the parents left with the child without their namej or addresses being learned. INCREASES WASHINGTON, D.

In his address he deplored the rising trend of trade conditions against the individual business establishments and he told the commercial men that only by their cooperation would it be possible for these smaller establishments to survive. He warned that, if some such steps were not taken the time would soon come when opportunity for employment of a local nature would cease to exist. Percy A. Patterson, past supreme counselor, presided a,t the banquet, which was opened by" singing "America" and an invocation by W. B. Swayne, grand chaplain.

MAKE HEADWAY ON .CONCRETE POURING With a run of approximately 600 feet of concrete highway yesterday, the paving crew of the builders of the Cresson mountain section of the William Penn highway reached and passed the ,half-way mark in the 4,300- foot stretch that must be completed and allowed to cure before it will be possible to throw the mountain highway open to traffic again. Yesterday's run was the largest since the pouring was resumed on last Saturday and followed another large run of 568 feet In addition to a number of headwalls on the previous day. Work was started before 6 o'clock both mornings and continued without a break until about the same hour each evening. The half-way point was reached about noon yesterday. Several additional trucks were placed In service yesterday morning in order to keep the mixer in operation without having to lose any time waiting for the arrival of the "batches" of material, hauled from the material yard at Duncansville, .approximately six miles from the scene of the paving. The concrete ribbon reached the site of the old Fountain Inn at the conclusion of Wednesday's pouring and yesterday gradually advanced across the long fill, where thousands of yards of material was hauled late last fall to build up a uniform grade where the road Is relocated In eliminating several bad curves which existed in the old macadam thoroughfare. It was work at this point which seriously delayed construction operations last season. When the pouring reaches the end of this relocation, the new roadway will leave the route of the old road completely and the latter route may be used while concreting continues to the Muleshoe culvert to join the stretch completed last season. If present progress can be maintained and the concrete stands the required departmental tests, the road should be available for traffic the last of next week or early the following week: Shipments of materials have been slow in reaching their destination and there Is some possibility of the pouring being delayed on this account, although last evening at the close of work for the day, it was estimated that there -was sufficient for a : full day's run today, If weather conditions permit, even if none of the material on track arrived.

ZEPPELIN FACING VIOLENT STORMS (Continued from Page 1.) brought down near Toulon after a desperate struggle with the mistral. Dr. Eckener had been shifting his course frequently earlier today to find favorable winds. The northeast winds were beating down on the ship as she headed up the valley, sending out regular signals of "all's well." The signals could not be picked up later, however, when the ship was warned of the storm. By JOSEPH OIUG0 (Special Cable to Altoona Mirror aft! N. T. Sun.) LONDON, June 8.—AmbaMHd Charles G. Dawes. who sails fof York on Saturday, treated a distill gulshed audience at Trinity Cambridge, on Thursday night to &• very frank dissertation on what ftaJt regards as representative American*-*!; and in doing go had some backhand^ flings at those who come here anT£« bilious to shine in society. 17 The ambassador's audience evinced' a piquant interest in what he had tcC say, for it was an unusual speech lit, such erudite surroundings. The Lon*, don Dally Mail makes a prominent^ feature of it today, saying that muct% significance attaches to the rebukes administered by Ambassador Dawes lf*f view of the exciting social race to Ddt presented at the British royal court. ' A number of General Dawea's predeJ cessors have confessed In the that one of the most onerous and troublesome burdens of the Americ ambassador to London la the questio of court presentations, because the are generally scores of application^ for every invitation to the court place " at the amBassador's disposal. Thetefi is also a great rush for Invitations to® the royal enclosure at Ascot. BtttS General Dawes probably ia the fira8(t American ambassador to express him^»r self publicly on such a subject, ee+i peclally when there is still anoth«£j royal court to be held and Ascot weeKg is rapidly approaching. "j Ambassador Dawes told hia llsteneraE, that the American Gold Star mothers^ who recently visited England were a» representative cross section of th* America^! people, "representing th heart and soul of the American the bone and sinew of the Ameri people, and the proud attitude of American people," and then adi emphatically: "They were a body 01 travelers not self-invited, with thi " minds occupied by thoughts of society reporters or fashionable dressmakers, They broughtn o social introductions'.'!
