Thirty leading wtwr.en- organizers, educators and club officials from many e«ctlons ol the country cam* before tlie House Judiciary Committee, armed with three-minute speeches in defense of the 18th Amendment and the Vole-tead Act. I/eonidas Dyer, Republican representative- from St. JLxnils, prepared a speech to he delivered later in the day before lite Wickereham Law Knforee- merit Commiselon, urging it to declare itself in favor of 2.75 per cent beer. Political tongues wagged with speculation about the action of the National Republican Club of New York, declaring Itself for repeal of the 18th Amendment in the face of the Administration's direct effortstt for law enforcement and observance. The methods of procedure in the«e efforts were being privately debated among members of the House Judiciary Committee, whose sub-committee yesterday reported two more of the Wlckersham reform meaSuree proposing to define casual -violation* of law ·urd«»r the Jonea Act, in order that stringent penalties may not be used against minor infractions, and also to relieve congestion in the courts. The pi ivate comments indicate the fate of these measures is doubtful. Of these four contemporaneous developments the "ladies' day" in the dry hearings commanded the most interest. The first witness scheduled wis Mrs John F. Sippel, Baltimore, president of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, who said Monday she had received an anonymous telephone ·warning her not to appear. There also was reported to be dissatisfaction among some other officials of the federation that Mrs. Sippel contemplated placing the organization on record. The 30 "three-minute women" were organized ly Mrs. Henry W. Peabody, Boston, chairman of the Women's National Committee for Law Enforcement. A week ago the call went out to women over the country to rally In defense of prohibition and the list of witnesses!, she announced, was the result.

C!«neral Yen'a m«n saw In jQen«*al Chiang Kai-shek's advance a deteir- mination to annihilate their leader's army ami their decision toiejay followed. The garrisons here and at Tientsin are commanded by General Yen Hal-Shan's generals and th*y are determined not to submit to Chiang Kai-Shek's domination. Reports today Indicated Chiang Kai- shek's troops wore advancing through Honan province without opposition, Nanking having purchased thie allegiance of the generals in that area, former subordinates of the so-called "Christian general," Marshal Peng Yu-Hslang. , Tho SUanal gener-als: have begun advance defends guards along th southern borders of Hbpel (fiorn.erly Chihli) province. Rejiorti from China recently have indicated that General Yen Hsl-Shan of Sbansi provinoe has agreed to an alliance with Marshal Feng Yu- Hslang. Feng, formerly minister of war at Nanking, broke with Chiang Kai-Shek last May and has been seeking to organize a revolt against him since. Despite the intimations General Yen was allied w th Feng, he recently accepted Nanking's appointment as second in command under Chiang Kai- Shek of th National government's armies. In a speech at Peiplng he urged national unity. However, the above dispatch indicates a br ak between Yen and Chiang Kai-thek has occurred and that Nanking is trying this Bprlng to oonsollclabe Its position in North China, wheix Yen has held almost complete con!col since the e-uminer of 1928/ * ^ Hetty Green s Always Drove Hard Bargains The mean st forms oC economy permeated aril departments of rietty Green's life.

She tried to bargain with them but they informed her the price wae standard and could not be lowerod. "All right," she eaid, "take the car off the train and $5 off the price-and I'll ride in tha locomotive." And this she did. At 'Bellows Falls one day «he wanted to buy a horse. The owner aeked $201) for it. He refused to lower his price. She went to a person who bad been a lifelong enemy ot the hor"»c owner, She jgot all the particulars of his life, went back to bjnr and shocked · him by revealing what she knew of his past. She offered htm $CQ and he took it. Afterward eh a laughed, eayiiig «he would have bren willing to pay $100. what to do When the key's lost ... a locksmith. When the pipe leaks . . . a plumber.
