SCRANTON, Pa., Jan. 6.-A demandI
that the anthracite suspension be end-
ed and that miners and operators
settle their differences was contained
in a telegram from publishers of the
leading newspapers of the hard coal
field this afternoon after a conference#
here. The telegram was sent to the
operators' and miners' representa-
tives now in conference in New York.
The telegram follows:
"The undersigned, responsible heads
of the newspapers published in cities'
of the anthracite coal regions, desire
to add their voices to the great chorus
that has gone up to the joing con-
ference of representatives of the
United Mine Workers of America and
the Anthracite Coal Operators Assoc-t

Union League Club, New York, to
compose their differences and put an
end to the calamitous incubus that
now hangs over the anthracite coal

Samuel T. Dana, director of the

tion of the Forestry Service at Am-
herst, Mass., will speak at 4:15 o'clock
this afternoon in Natural Science au-
ditorium on "The Place of Forest Re-
search in the National Forest Pro-
gram." Mr. Dana conducts research
experiments that have to do with for-
est conditions in the Northeast. At
the station the work is conducted so
as to collect and assemble facts re-
lating to private lumber growing in
that section of the country.
Much of the research has to do with
the elimination of. forest diseases andI
parasites, such as the blight-killing of
Chestnut trees and the gypsy moth,
both of which are problems for the{
forester in the East. Other phases
of the work done at thetstation con-
sists of studies of growth and yield,
methods of cutting, the natural re-
production of differentrspecies of
trees, the economics of fire protection,
and methods of "slash" disposal.
"Slash" is the waste that remains
after the timber has been removed
from the land.
Mr. Dana, who was for a time For-
est Commissioner for Maine, has writ-
ten written several articles, "Farms,.
Foilests and Erosion,"'and "Forestry

American lelegates to the prepara-
tory disarmament conference to be I
held at Geneva was unanimously rec-
ommended to the house today by its
foreign affairs committee in compli-

The administration's plans for par-

while, were pressed forward, Secre-
tary Kellogg conferring with Secre-
tary Davis, of the war department,1
and presumably getting in touch with
Secretary Wilbur respecting the se-
lection of army and navy technical
personnel that will aid the American
It appears possible that the army
and navy officers will be selected
from among either the present mili-
tary staffs at European capitals or
from men who recently have had the
latest experience. The knowledge of
foreign languages also is being con-
sidered in making selections.
Both the war and navy depart-
ments have been engaged in studies
of the questions outlined for consid-
eration at the Geneva conference, and
have undertaken much research to
obtain data for the drafting of an
American policy.
Before recommending the expense
appropriation, the foreign affairs com-
mittee debated the language of the
resolution at length and also consid-
ered a number of amendments that
were offered. One of these, bykRepre-
sentative Fish, Republican, New York,
to instruct the American delegation
to present a resolution calling for
consideration of the advisability of
outlawing nations starting wars of
aggression, was rejected, but a num-
l ber, dealing chiefly with phraseology,
I were approved. The Fish amendment
was opposed by Chairman Porter and
Rep. Temple, of Pennsylvania, rank-
ing Republican, as ill advised, al-
though both said they were in sym-

Scholar Frowns
On Grade System
Requirements for obtaining an "A"
grade are fatal to the independence,
.J initiative, and spirit of adventure
I which are the life blood of the true1
scholar and scientist, according to a
statement recently made by Floyd
f Simonton, a senior at the University'
of Kansas, in refusing a membership
in Phi Beta Kappa, honorary scholas-
t tic fraternity. Ile states that, "to
strive for high grades is detrimental'
( to the best interests of scholarship.''I
11Mr. Simonton goes on, stating, "In
short, I feel thatthe grade system of
' our schools is a false criterion of
scholarship, and is a dangerous foun-
dation for intellectual idealism and
achievement. The grade system
causes 'grinding', 'cramming' doing
what the 'prof' expects, and working
- for a grade. It is a sacrifice of per-
n sonal development made for the
empty honor of a grade."

Senator Simmons, of North Caro-

f minority members, and announced
fterwards that the substitute sched-
les would be prepared and presented

Going rapidly through other pro-
isions of the bill today, the commit-

ninistrative changes voted by the

ill except for the rate schedule and

On these vital sections, straight out
arty votes are predicted in the com-
ittee where Republicans, who have
nnounced general approval of the
louse rates, have a majority of 10 to

imilar majority in the Senate as a
whole, but the Democrats are count-
ng on considerable support from in-
urgent Republican members, which
nabled them two years ago to write
heir provisions into the bill.
While no indication of the Demo-
ratic program has been given, Sena-
or Simmons is~known to favor an in-
rease in the maximum surtax from
0 percent, as voted by the house, to
t least 25 percent. The Democratic
anks are divided, however, on the
proposal for continued publicity of'
ncome tax returns.
The minority members of the com-
nittee have generally expressed favor
oward the normal income tax rates

creased personal exemptions, but
hese along with the inheritance and
gift taxes and all of the miscellaneous
schedules, were passed over by the
committee pending the completion of

is expected soon after the Democratic
program is submitted, but a fight Is
mminent in committee over changes

This can best be achieved by the de-
