E. SCENE OF LID FIGHT MAY SHIFT TO CAPITOL Battle on Sunday Amusements Likely to Be Carried to Congress. NATIONAL FOR SUNDAY REST The District Commissioners hava decid ed to carrv their flaht for regulation of Sunday amusements in Washington tn Congress in the event they are unable to obtain a satisfactory court ruling. Just what is' the' nature 'of the remedial legislation which they -would ask Con gress to enact they, have not decided. Conrad H.

Syme. District Corporation Counsel, began steps 'yesterday to take an Immediate on. the decision of Justice Gould, of the District Supreme Court, holding that the Commissioners were to regulate Bun-day amusements. It Is hoped that' the Court of Appeals will dlrpose of the case before Its sumnter adjournment. If Mr.

Syme is successful in his will give the Commissioners time to carry their fight before. Congress at this session, should the Court of Appeals uphold the ruling of the1 lower court There Is some however, if- the Court of Appeals win be able to render a decision In the case before June 'adjournment. Manager W. H. Rapier, of the National Theater, yesterday announced that last Sunday's performance at that theater wasvnot a forerunner of a season of Sunday theatrical performances, but only a means testing the authority of-tbo Commissioners- to stop- such a show.

"Thecourts have definitely decided that thei Commissioners nave exceeded their delegated powers- and have no right to said. "If now remains to De seen what-Congress do toward outlining, a' policy as to" Sunday amusements. I'have. always any move ment toward Sunday amusement performances. The employes of theater.

as well as workers in other walks of. life are entitled to one day's rest, and this. in ltseir, la sufficient, to, prejudice me against open Sundays."

Forlnftats land Chlldrea III Uct For Ovm-30 Always beai Xha Signature of I A The many so-called Boy Scout, story books, stacks of cheap Juvenile books, along with their authors, publishers, and sellers, are severely arraigned In" a papef written by F. K.

Mathlews chief scout librarian of. the Boy Beouta of America, to be read at this morning's session of the American Library Association at 'the New After telling of efforts made to estao-i llsh a library for boys, where they can get wholesome substitutes for the cheap story books In the stores, which "blow out. shoot to pieces, or burn out boys' Imaginations." Mr. Mathlews writes, in nart: "As a movement, responsible as ine promoters and trustees of the Boy Scout Idea, we found ourselves face to (ace witn the menace of mediocrity and threat of vlclousncss contained In the averago so- called Boy Scout story book. Authors and publishers, greedy for gain, have been quick to see that the moment -the most compelling interest in the mind oc tne American boy today Is.

the Boy Scout idea. So we now have scores scores of Boy Scout story books absolutely un worthy to bear the name, hot only be cause our principles are so. grossly mis represented, but also because the Ideas presented are of the most pernicious sort. Ulsa-nlsed Xlcfcrl Xorel. The Boy Scout story books stand as a type of the modem cheap Juvenile publication, which Is really the nickel novel In disguise.

Through the good Influence of' the public libraries and schools the motion pictures and certain magazines. the dime novel, or. speaking for our own time, the nickel novel, has been hard hit. but the nickel novel has not been banished so completely as at first appears. You will find It now more often and more widely distributed In the disguise of the bound book, and sometimes so attractively bound that It takes Its place on the retail book store shelf alongside -the best Juvenile publications.

'Because these books do" not develop criminals or lead boys, except occasionally, to seek the wild West, parents "who buy such books think they do their boys no harm. The fact Is, however, the harm done Is incalculable. "To protect our movement from the so-called Boy Scout story books and to help parents and educators meet the grave peril of the nickel novel In the disguise of the cheap bound book, the library commission of our movement was organized. "All the author of this type of reading desires Is to write something that will 'get by his publisher with another thriller sure to Interest the boy. The result Is.

as boys read these books, their imaginations are literally 'blown 'shot pieces," or 'burned and they go Into life more terribly crippled than though by some material explosion they had lost a hand or foot-Boy Scout Week. -iIn order that the widest publicity might be'' given to the foregoing facta our movement In the last week of May will promote in all the cities qt the South I visited a Boy 'Scout week, beginning on Sunday; when will preach upon the worth or good books for boys.
