It is also exclusively entitled to use for publication all the local or undated news published herein A HOME TOWN GIRL MAKES GOOD The news from New York that Miss Catherine McNelis, a Wilkes-Barre ' girl, who made good in the metropolis, would become . publisher of the American Spectator, was a pleasant surprise to her friends in the home town. She will continue to head the Tower Publications. Miss McNelis has shown an enormous capacity for work and rare acumen, proof of both being furnished in her astounding success, now one of the romances of the business. She is evidence that youth must be served. As advertising director of The Bo3ton j Store, Miss McNelis had an enviable record here before she decided to embark in the national magazine field. It was a daring move, requiring courage of a high order. Although she has been in New York only five years, she already is a commanding figure there. Her latest achievement adds immeasureably to her prestige. BOTH SIDES WASTE ENERGY A good deal of energy is being wasted by industry and labor in their controversy over the meaning and intent of the recovery act. If this same energy were devoted to a co-operative effort to promote recovery it would be productive of much greater gains in which all could share. Of course, the contention of the American Federation of Labor that the recovery act contemplates a closed shop is an interpretation designed for the benefit of that organization. Perhaps it is perfectly natural that the Federation should indulge in this stretching of the essential fact. The federation of labor naturally holds that there can be no effective labor organization except such as It provides. But that is something quite wide from the law. Under the law, , any form of organization i3 open to employes. It may be an association, it may be a group gathering, it may be a company union, it may be anything employes may decide upon. But it does not necessarily follow that, as the National Association of Manufacturers contends, a condition of organization which may produce a closed shop under which labor contracts shall be made with a single union is a violation of the intent of the recovery act, for the reason that that act is silent on the subject of form of organization. If there is one thing that seems plain as to the intent of that act in relation to labor organizations, it is that employes shall be free to organize as they see fit. And by the same token, the employer does not violate that intent if he encourages the formation of a company union or any other type of organization so long as that encouragement is not accompanied by coercion. As to what might constitute coercion, that, perhaps, would in some instances be difficult to say. Viewpoints would, be apt to be diametrically opposed. What the employer would hold to be "inducements," straight-line union organizers might interpret as coercive measures. But directly or indirectly, a man's job should not depend on his acceptance of another's point of view as to unionism. And that goes for both sides to a needless controversy. If both industry and labor would accept - this as a correct interpretation of the provisions of the recovery act and would agree to adjust their relations in the spirit of that interpretation, if each would lay aside the aterapt to read into the act something that is not there or out of the act something that is there, one great obstacle to recovery progress would be immediately removed. NOISE AND SCIENTISTS Among the poises of the day is the noise which the scientists are making about noise. Of course, no one will argue that noise is not sometimes a nuisance. Sometimes it is .so because of its discordances. Sometimes it is so because of its rhythms. But sometimes WOMEN CAN" END CRIME Mary Roberts Rhinehart is scarcely more interesting in her detective stories than in her plan for turning the distaff of the family against crime and its practioners. Having witnessed the work of women for repeal, once they were organized and under way, Mrs. Rhinehart feels that the racketeers would have nothing but the shortest of short shrift if women were to become, really con scious of the crime problem and set them selves to do something about it. If such a movement is to be undertaken it might be well, however, to make sure that the point of departure is well cleared.-Mrs. Rhinehart says she has studied the crime situation for 25 years and has become "increasingly concerned with America's tolerance of it." That seems to be inaedquate. In this country we have more than tolerated crime; we have actually encouraged it by our sentimentality. -Men as well as womenjiave professionalized and organized" this sentimentality, too, thus making it highly effective. One would not return to the days before prison reform. But one would have the realities of crime appreciated. Until they are appreciated, no attack on crime and criminals will be adequate. Mrs. Rhinehart, needless to say, is not lacking in such appreciation. We would 1 merely suggest that her proposal can assume a necessary definiteness of direction only by making it clear that the United States has not been merely passive respecting crime but has actively encouraged crime by adding sentiment to mercy in the admin-1 istration of justice. Same Old Millstone noise is consoling. We can just imagine that right at the present moment if a dozen riveting machines were filling the air of any one city block, and if that block were multiplied . a hundredfold and if the one city should become every city, the resultant roar would be just about the very best music we could possibly hear. Still, the scientists gathered at Los Angeles are concerning themselves mightily about the bad effects of noise on the human being. We are told that it interferes with digestion, causes high blood pressure, injures the ear drums and is even one of the causes for the existence of gangsters. In a way we suppose it all depends. There are persons who find the silences of the country the most disturbing noises in the -world. There are others who find a soporific effect in the clanging of elevated trains rush-, ing by their window. It all depends not so much on the noise as on the individual. It would be rather nice if we could all be like the famous shell fish concerning whom the challenge once went forth to find a noisy ..oise that annoys an oyster. . - .. . . . ' . BRINGING EVENING GOWNS BACK Department stores and specialty shops are being urged by certain fashion designers in the East to "market" a larger volume of formal clothes for women. For as prohibition closed down the glittering restaurants and "lobster palaces" where women went as much to display elaborate and elegant toilettes as to dine, so repeal is expected to create new show places with the same meaning in their names as Rector's, Del-monico's and Shanley's had in the old days. The era of speakeasy dining assuredly did not make for conspicuous formality in attire. Of late the "cocktail jacket" and the "cocktail dress" have been frankly advertised semi-formal costumes suitable for the hour before dinner. The garment designers are aware that even such designations will be unnecessary after repeal, and because they are wary they have added a sociological reason to their interest in formal clothes. Not only is enthusiasm for finery to be aroused, but "temperance and moderation" will also be fostered "by engendering an atmosphere in which liquor would be secondary to the so'flal aspect." Since anything that will make liquor, as a substance, and as a subject for conversation, secondary will be welcome, one may hail the return of "dressiness." TEN CENT FINES Judge Frankenhoff of St. Joseph, Mo!, seems to outdo Solomon in his judgments in liquor cases. He announces that hereafter the fine for violation of local prohibition enactments will be ten cents. While the law provides for a minimum fine of "$100, the judge says he will enter a stay of execution covering $99.90. Thus the form of the law will be observed and its enforcement put in "harmony with the spirit of the times" as indicated by the recorded repeal sentiment in the 31 states which have so far voted on that issue. Probably this decision will provoke some hcRlth f, h,ls ?mll' nd fiends. caustic comments from those dry advocates T ,m mnf.,w , .S.t if .,., who Still refuse to recognize the Change in were familiar with the early signs sentiment that has swept the country in the last four years. Still, it can be said that Judge Frankenhoff is merely recognizing the fact that no law can be effective without public support and that laws which are outgrown because of changes in public conceptions or public habits should be discarded in conformity with such changes. 3sv?f v.; ??.."

COPELAXD, M. 1. j early symptoms lias much to do V. S. Sentaor From New York Former Commissioner of Health, New York city Nowadays we rarely hear the dreaded word "consumption." The disease Is still a vital problem In public health, but the word "tuberculosis" Is now used to describe it. Because of better control, tuberculosis no longer causes the anxiety and apprehension of former years. This change of attitude can readily be explained by the tremendous advances made in the treatment and cure of this affliction. At one time the victim of tuberculosis was doomed to an Inevitable fate. Today, with proper hygiene, improvement in surroundings and necessary medication, the sufferer may become a healthy and useful citizen. Indeed, many cases of tuberculosis are entirely cured. Complete cure can only be hoped for when the underlying disease Is recognized In Us early stages and the proper measures of control are taken. Tuberculosis still remains a hopeless disease when it is allowed to exist for years without medical attention. Not only Is the victim doomed, but he is a menace to the of tuberculosis more complete cures would be reported. A recent analysis shows that neglect of the with prolonging tuberculosis. Though there are definite signs of the disease, a diagnosis cannot always be made from one sign. Nevertheless, tuberculosis should be suspected In an individual who complains of loss of weight, night sweats, persistent cough, blood streaked sputum and other general signs of ill health. The value of a periodic, health examination Is especially valuable as an aid In the discovery of early unsuspected tuberculosis. Often tuberculosis Is discovered In a per son who has observed no physical complaints and believes his health to be excellent. When recognized at thlss tage complete cure is possible. I am often asked whether change of climate Is Usential to the cure of tuberculosis. In former years it was believed that a high, dry climate was essential. Though such a climate Is beneficial and most desirable, it is now the belief of most specialists that change of climate is not absolutely necessary. Rest, supervised activities, abundant fresh air and sunlight, are the essentials of a complete cure. In certain "cases this treatment may be carried on at home. Where the home is crowded and facilities for proper nursing are lacking, the treatment is best given at a eanl-torlum that specializes in this work. Sidelights in the News of Capitals LINDY PLAYED SAFE It often proves embarrassing, even to notables, to be called upon to address gather-1 mgs at which they may be guests. In many cases the speeches cause amusement to those present. Even such a veteran public figure as Col. Charles A. Lindbergh occasionally i3 stumped, it appears. At any rate the press dispatches report he said to an audience of diners at Leningrad, on the occasion of his welcome to Russia: "Your country is ideally located for flying and is certain to take an important part in international aviation." Since Russia i3 a land of more than eight million square miles, about a seventh of the total land area of the world, and has a population of approximately 150 million persons, the Colonel must have felt himself safe in making such a remark, which he could have addressed with equal felicity to China or, the United States.

Bacon. ; Berlin, Sept, 80. How Admiral Scheer, late commander-in-chief of the German battle fleet during the Jutland engagement, outwitted his adversary Admiral jelllcoe and how the German radio operators had a large share ln the trick was revealed for the first time and proven by document at the National radio exhibition held recently ln Berlla. Know for a long time that the British Intelligence service was able to decipher the German naval code and was thus well informed about any move of the German battle fleet, Scheer decided to trap the English on the eve of the Jutland encounter. He changed the wave length of his flagship, the "Frederlch der Grosse" and left behind at Wll-helmshaven, the German naval base ln the North Sea, an old cruiser with the wave length known to the Britieh. Thus the British, when receiving the messages and orders of the alleged flagship, believed for some hours that the German grand fleet was still in harbor, while in reality tt was already far out at sea to rush to the assistance of the Ger man battle cruisers engaged In a llfe-and-death struggle with Admiral Beatty's superior forces. Furthermore, copies of all the 170 radio messages of the German com mander-in-chief ueed ln directing the operations of his fleet were shown In the exhibition. Despite heaviest fighting and although many ships were badly disabled by ehellnre, all the messages were re received correctly "Heroes and hero-worship" In the German - film business have been ordered to cease henceforth, and the former starts, masculine and feminine, have to fall In line with the rank and file In Nazi-col lectivlst fashion Such Is the demand of the Nazi "Film chamber" It will do away with hysterics and manias of film rods as reararda publicity and gar- geous salaries, with the purpose of giving the young novices a chance in the screen world The objeot is also In mind ot educating the fans to understand that the film Itself is the main thing, and not the spoiled princes and princesses of the movies For Instance, ln advertising films the names of the so-called stars must no longer be printed ln thick letters and never ahead of the title of the niece The cast must do giv en in alphabetic order and it Is for the fans to Judge whether their stars might not he outpiayea oy ambitious youngsters The new demand follows right after the new rules ln German theatre life, according to which star salaries have been cut severely and certain minimum sal- arWt At r" pnrfnrmanra The calm before the storm perhaps, but the past week found the poltlcal leaders spending their time otherwise than being engaged in political maneuver. There is very little for the county Republican organization to do, for the State Administration leaders succeeded In securing both Democratic and Republican nominations for two of their candidates, and a Q. O. P. place for the other. William Multer, county Republican chairman. ... and nominee for County Controller, will face Thomas Callahan of Swoyervllle, the Democratic selection, ln the November finals. With Roger Howells. Kingston, the Jury Commissioner selected by the Republicans, and Patrick J. Gallagher, of the Parsons section of the city, the Democratic commissioner, this fight Is all over too The municipalities have political struggles that will hold Interest', not to tercet in three of the four cities, Hazleton, Nantlcoke ana tnis city. le being made. Every county leader will be asked to "render an ac. counting of his stewardship" to his party head. Both State leaders have made It l-lain that Pennsylvania's Democracy must triumph. On the strength of the Roosevelt showing last November VanDyke and Guf- fey have been able to secure considerable ln the way-of patronage " from the federal leaders. If this State falls to respond. If county units cannot be strengthened through prestige and Job courtesies, there is the possibility that national leaders will leave this Commonwealth to the G. O. P. and center attention and patronage In the future in some' more fertile po-4iUcalfield Several State-wide issues will hold Interest. The wet issue as well as the vote upon a liberalized Sunday to nermlt baseball and football, will go before the voters. Both of these issues may Be at tached to the Democrats, for the members of that party have shown the way for the repeal of prohibition as well as for Sunday sports. The State soldiers' bonus and ten other amendments will be voted upon. Prohibition repeal, through the ag' gressive drive launched by President Franklin D. Roosevelt ana his Na tlonal and State leaders, has found doubtful States turning in big ma Jorttles on the side of repeal. The definite stand of the national lead ars h&s resulted ln substantial and smashing victories for the Democratic party everywhere. Pennsylvania hide-bound Republican, will not stand in the way of prohibition repeal. This certainly will have considerable ef feet upon the November election. The constitutional amendment will demand the attention of the major party chieftains. The Republicans may consider this today at Fogels ville where the big and little kings of the party gather ln annual meet' Ing. The opening campaign gun will be fired at this session ln Lehigh County. There Is a possibility that the G. O. P. leaders will not com mlt themselves on the prohibition issue, and may decide to permit the voters to decide the Sunday issue of sports, without persuatlon. The State executive committee meeting of the Democrats at Har rlsburg next week will find the State leaders definitely on the sido of prohibition repeal and for Sun day law modification. The Jeffer- sontans have already thrown themselves Into this campaign becuuse of President Roosevelt's determined stand against prohibition, and tho State Dems' action ln thrusting themsolves into the legislative ac tion on the local option measure last Spring which doesn't leave an doubt as to the contemplated Demo ratio action. State Chairman Warren Van Dyke the past year has issued statements periodically on the re peal and expects every leader and every worker In the party to stand loyally by Roosevelt and the Demo cratlo issue. At next week's meet ing he plans to make it plain to the executive committee members that the State Democratic organiza ion will not countenance any devia tion from this program. Van Dye has pledged full co-operation. Stato Chairman Edward . Martin and other Republican leaders have shown tendencies to follow a hands off policy on both repeal and blue law modification and may avert a declaration of policy on these questions. During the session of the legislature General Martin stood firmly by his contention that repeal then directed at the Snyder-Arm strong State enforcement act and Sunday law changes were not par ty questions, but were matters for the individual to decide. Th nw move is meant to wipe out the dictatorship of actors over producers and fans, and it is said to be heartily approved by the rank and file of the film world, among whom there probably slumber many budding talents whose glary Is expected to shine brighter in consequence Germany is bent upon becoming the healthiest nation in the world by ruthlessly wiping out all rort or hereditary diseases Details about the new law for the "prevention of offspring liable to incur hereditary diseases, effective January 1, ltt. are being pub. lished by Professor Dr Baron von VerschUer ln the German central medical organ Among the new rules and regu lations there appears: 1. Compulsory registration oi an nennle aufferlns? from diseases li able to devolve upon their progeny: 5. Comoulaory reports on - all such cases by all German Physi cians to the central fieien nemo board and reports on all future cases handled by the physicians; 3. Bterlltatlon of all such per sons after recommendation by pri vate physicians and eniers or pun-lie and private asylums and sanitariums; 4. Establishment of a consulta tive board for people willing to contract matrimony. , State Democratic Chairman War- ren Van Dyke and Roosevelt leader Joseph Guffey do not mean to per mit any Internal troubles to dis rupt their program of bidding for State-wide success in 1834, Judging from the curt orders sent out to leaders throughout the State that bona-flde Democrats must be suy ported. Van Dyke and Guffey, both old and seasoned campaigners over this Commonwealth, see the pon slblity of giving Pennsylvania its first Democratic governor since the day of Pattison, being politically schooled they realize that any divis ion in any quarter right now may work havoc next year when there Is hope of presenting a united party for State success. Washington leaders are Just as insistent that Democrats stand together in this fight. They have unequivocally announced that there can be no halfway measures of endorsement, it has been hinted, in some communities that the failure to deliver may seriously affect future Federal patronage distribution. In Philadelphia the Van Dyke-Guffey forces routed the O'Donnell leadership because of alleged and contended alliance with the Vare Old Guard Republican machine, while at Scranton the other night a demand was made that the Democratic county chairman, Hugh Brady, and the Scranton city Democratic chairman, Joseph Conrad, resign. The demand in Scranton came from one of the National delegates and a recognised leader ln the neighboring county, Attorney Frank J. McDonnell. The latter is the choice of Editor Lynett, M. E. With a number of the present job holders in the Internal revenue department scheduled to pack their bag and baggage next week there are rumors of a number of appointments that may come down today or Monday. It is understood two Larksville young men, Benjamin Stark and Edward Hahn, will be given assignments, the former as a deputy collector in this crea, while Hahn will likely be assigned to the auditing department ln Scranton. Bith Jobs' are rated at $2,800 it is understood. Uoth Stark and Hahn are promt-t ently known in their home communities. The former for years had been employed in the county t'anscrlblng department, while Hahn had been affiliated in the eudlting department of the Kingston Coal Company. The passing during the week of the veteran Jimmy Qulnn. long associated with the county assessors' bureau, removed from public life one of the best known and most highly respected public officials. Having been an attache of this bureau for a score and ten years. Jimmy Qulnn, who lived his life in the Georgetown section of Wilkes-Barre Township, was recognized not only for his knowledge of the department and county assessments, but because of his courtesies and his affability. Qulnn for years served as chief clerk. In his early days he was active in politics, being a Republican, he feithfully followed the standard of the G. 6. P. Although his friends were legion, his close friend and confident was Thomas F. Heffer-iicn, former postmaster and now publisher and editor. It was a rare Saturday night that these fast friends did not chat for hours, go ing over political situations and political conditions. When Mr. Heffornan was an active Republican leader Qulnn was one of his !ieutenant who shared every con fidence of the leader, and who labored not only for the success of his chosen party but because, victory for the Republicans meant success for his esteemed friend. Jimmy Qulnn of late years had not teen active. He will be missed ln court house circles, and ln his favorite visiting places. There are more than two score applicants for the clerkship. The appointment may not be made for several weeks, it is understood. John Brace, of Plymouth, highly tated as an accountant, who Is Republican chairman of the Fifth district, looms as the probable choice. Brace recently was dls- rt'lesed as an employee of the State Auditor General's department by Frank Baldwin when he assumed office. The post pays $2,400. Jrseph Ashberger, this city, one? of the field clerks, Is alao heard as an applicant, i while John Qulnn, son ol the deceased clerk, has also been mentioned. Michael Dougherty, row in the county commissionets' otfice, may be transferred, accord ing to rumor. With Prothonotary John Bonjn being given both major nominations, and Dr. William Henderson. c?erk of courts, similarly honored by Democrats and Republicans, assuring their re-election, It !s taken that there will be no change in the personnel of either office when these officials begin their second terms in January. Governmental goings-on in our city have fettled down to the or dinary after the primary election. There Is little talk of politics for it seems the leaders are resting after the hectic primary campaigning, as are the candidates. The interest seems to center in the coun-cilmanic contests. Although every thing now Is peaceful and quiet the situation Is charged with dynamite. There are f orcr candidates,-Loftus, Qulglcy, Brown and Nobel. and it seems like a toss-up to pick the two winners. Indications point to a hectic contest in November. EDITOR'S SANCTUM Cmsfe ana Juste Bi Oi H comb for the federal district attor reyshlp In the Middle district. Mr. McDonnell didn't mlcce words in his call for the resignations. Ho said that Democratic candidates, who ln the past fought in the thinned ranks of their party while Re publicanism- triumphed -were sac-4 kudeonr were some of the very rlflced by leaders selfishly ambitious. He said Democrats were left in the lurch. He charged that the activities of the chairmen was an insult to State Chairman Van- I'yke and State Leader Guffey, tonnge dispenser. Attorney Mc Donnell said the aliased tactics of rupporting Republicans brought the defoat ot faithful Democrats. He particularly charged that this 'flip-flop' on the part of county and city leaders did not help Tom Flnners ' Quintan, a wounded war veteran. Attorney McDonnell was Joined In his protect by Michael J. McHugh, one-time mayorality candidate against Edward Jermyn. The result of this meeting-has Scranton' and Lackawanna's Dem ocracy in a turmoil.
