DON'T QUOTE ME WASHINGTON, March 23 (U.R) There is no question about it, either the house restaurant in the cap-itol basement is violating the law or the house members are getting gypped. Either situation is equally uncomfortable. Representative John J. Cochran, Dem., Ma, is credited with uncovering the state of affairs. He is a fisherman which explains how the matter came to his eye. He noticed that the house restaurant was offering fresh-water black bass on ita menu. Sale of these fish Is illegal. He ordered one, ate it and then brought the matter up in the house. Representative A. Willis Robert-ion, Dem., Va., undertook to defend Che restaurant. "I have made Investigation," said ltobertson, "and have found that these are black see bass, a salt water fish which can be sold legally." ;."Then," retorted Cochran, "they Should take off the menu the description, 'Potomac bass,' because there is no salt water where those baas are found in the Potomac river. Bass of that kind do not come out of salt water; I have caught too 'fctairy of them for the gentleman to tell me that." ' Which left It up to the restaurant to decide whether it had been serving up illegal fish or palming off sea ( bass as fresh water bass to plscator-lally ignorant congressmen. The reporters assigned to the interior department have Just moved Into their new press quarters, generously advertised in advance as the swankiest In town. - Well, the quarters lived up to advance advertising all right. The newsmen have a suite of three rooms. Two are devoted to working quarters, and one is a lounge where the hard-worked newsmen can relax during idle moments of the day and enjoy the "fuller life" of the New Deal. The lounge 1 supplied with black overstuffed leather covered couches, a radio and a bridge table. There waa Just one little thing wrong, one reporter revealed, when hs moved In, The telephone would , not work. j the Bog training SEASON IS CLOSED ' Owners of sporting dogs, such as bird dogs and rabbit hounds, are reminded of the fact that the season for the training and running of dogs closed on February 28, last, and those who take their dogs into tht woods are subject to arrest and a fine, Game protectori are keeping a sharp lookout for dogs running at largs In tht woods, chasing birds and game, and in cases whert s tcense Is found on the dog, the rrner wlU be arrested and fined, and 'n no license u found on the dog rrr-nlnf st large, the animal will be Ct.

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, will remain at the Majestic theatre two days longer than scheduled. It will be shown Monday and Tuesday of next week to accommodate the record-breaking crowds that have nightly clamored for admittance. Never in the history of this theatre have patrons been so liberal with their praise, and many have already seen this Jerome Kern musical three times! Based upon the stage play which made theatrical history on Broadway, the picture deals with love in a Paris gown shop. Miss Dunne sings, Astaire and Rogers dance, and a spectacular fashion show climaxes the intensely human and altogether logical story. The principal love interest is between Miss Dunne and Randolph Scott, but there is more than a suggestion of romance in the sparkling repartee and gay camaraderie of Astaire and Miss Rogers. A bevy of America's most beautiful girls add eye appeal as fashion mannequins, and a dance band. composed of radio and night clubi entertainers, supplies some sparK I iing melody under the expert guid- ance of Astaire. Let nothing keep you frcra -seeing "Roberta" at least once! It's THE musical hit of the year! Mrs. Lark Dies Of Heart Seizure (Continued from Page One) auxiliary organizations and of the Rev.

The secretary of the association charged that union contracts kept the labor cost of mining anthracite at such a high point companies were forced to install labor-saving ma chinery to offset it. "That policy,' he said, "reduced the number of men employed, and many of these unem ployed are now operating for them' selves as 'bootleggers with, I am told, the complete sympathy of their neighbors." Equalization of work thruout the coal fields was urged in a resolution adopted by the state house of representatives this week as a means of stamping out mining and marketing of "bootleg" coaL Representative Edgar A. Schrope, Schuylkill, who introduced the resolution, revealed that his inspiration came from a recent visit of anthracite mine operators at the governor's office. They requested the chief executive's support in a campaign against the depression industry, and estimated that 3,000,000 tons a year or 10,000 tons daily of hard coal is mined and sold illegally. Earlier this month when James A. Gorman, umpire of the anthracite concilation board, ruled coal operators were within their rights in discharging men for engaging in "bootleg" mining, it was estimated the illegal traffic amounted to 4,000,-000 tons a year. Coal company officials apparently have despaired of securing convic tions of "bootleggers" before juries in the coal regions. Several cases were brought from Northumberland county this week to Harrisburg. It was indicated Dauphin county authorities are unwilling to authorize ex penditure of taxpayers' money for prosecution of such cases. Operators estimate crude mining operations conducted in abandoned Properties or in new openings made by "bootleggers" on company leased Jf ds yield an average of one ton a uay pel iiuiiei. luai iuci i wjiu below the market in cities. It is understood Gov. George H. Earle ordered Attorney General Charles J. Margiotti to review the legal ramifications of "bootleg" coal operations in preparation for the impending conference. At the Capitol What happened to Edwin Drood in the famous mystery story which Charles Dickens had only half completed when death took him in 1870? 3riefly, the story is that of one John Jasper, psalm-singing choir master in an English village cathedral, who, unknown to his church friends, is a victim of the opium habit and spends much of his time in opium dens. He has a nephew, Edwin Drood, who is engaged to marry beautiful, young Rosa Bud. Jasper is madly in love with the girl, but he also has a tremendous love for his nephew and is undergoing a terrible mental struggle as a result. Into the story comes another young man, Neville Landless, who falls In love with Rosa at first sight. Neville is a very hot-headed fellow and almost Immediately upon meeting Edwin gets into a violent argument with him, draws a knife and threatens to kill him. And then young Edwin disappears. With his disappearance it is discovered that Neville has also ! left the village. Jasper and many of the citizens cry out for ven-1 geance and demand the arrest of Neville as the murderer. Neville is caught, and explains he only left on a walking trip and has not seen Edwin since the previous evening! when he and Edwin spent the evening with Jasper.

NEW YORK, March 23 (U.R) As a ! harbinger of the day when Little Eva will leave Uncle Tom's Cabin in the altogether and Julius Caesar faces the Ides of March without the benefit of toga, the Nudist Theatre Guild today announced its first production "The Girl From Child's in 1950." The bare announcement said "a wealthy playboy well known to the public" had subscribed $10,000 to further nudist ideals throuzh the drama, that Bud Pollar.1 "a former motion picture director" and "a distinguished company of stock Dlav- ers" had joined the cooperative venture. The premier is scheduled for pla cid Mt. Vernon Monday but, according to the press agent, that municipality is "already seething" with threats of violence and boycott ifj the guild persists. "As was the case when Columbus first spoke of a new route to India and of a round globe, also when Margaret Sanger made her courageous fight for birth control so tremendous obstacles have been thrust in our path," Pollard said. The press agent hinted that all the players would appear sans culottes but the naked truth is that brassieres and panties will be in evidence. Theodora Peck, the leading lady will wear such a costume and her leading man is ironing his shorts in lieu of a tuxedo. The play is a revision of an ancient meller drama "The Girl From Child's" in which a wealthy youth marries the waitress who is scorn ed by his blueblooded family. The dowager will wear a corset and lorgnette and her husband shorts and a cigar. DANCE BRIDY'S NEW HALL (Second Floor) 5th & Locust Sta., Mt. Carmel AL AWAD and his Royal Vagabonds Benefit of the O.
