WASHINGTON, .an. 8-Legislation
creating new machinery to displace
the railroad tabor board as an agency
for settling railroad labor disputes
was introduced today by Chairman
Watson, of the senate interstate com-
merce committee.
The measure was worked out by
representatives of the railroad exe-
cutives and labor organizations after
a long series of conferences. It has
been presented to President Coolidge,
who is in sympathy with the princi-
The main provision of the bill would
establish a federal board of mediation
to be composed of five members ap-
pointed by the President with the ap-
proval of the Senate. This 1pard
would be called in where effort at
direct negotiation between the carrier
and their employees had failed and
where adjustment boards to be set
up could not come to an agreement.
Another important feature was a
provision that the right of an em-
ployee to quit work shall not be
abridged, and that no court of the
United States or of any state could
issue a process "to compel the per-
formance by an employee of such
labor or service" without his consent.

'Special settings, designed by Walk-

have been completed in the Mimes
theatre workshop for the production
by the Comedy club of Bernard Shaw's
burlesque, "Great Catherine", Tues-
day and Wednesday evening, January
12 and 13, in the Mimes theatre.
teFour scenes in the period of seven-
teenth century Russia are required,
shifting from the Imperial bedcham-
ber to the banks of the Neva, and as
executed represent the modern ten-
dencies in primitive Russian design
made popular recently in this country
through the success of the continen-
tal revue, "The Chauve Souris".
"Great Catherine" is one of Shaw's
latest plays and has been produced
but few times in America, notably at
the Neighborhood playhouse in New
York and at the Repertory theatre
In Boston under the direction of Hen-
ry ,Jewett. The theme of the comedy
deals with one of the many love af-
fairs of Catherine II of Russia, and
treats in a farcical manner the tri-
angle formed by a visiting English
captain, the queen herself, and her
Prime Minister, Patiomkin.
Miss Amy Loomis, director of
4Masques and the Junior Girls' play,
is cast in the title role, while Valen-

Party Members Of Committee Agree
On Program Of Greater Tax
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 8. - Senate
Democrats decided today not to con-
duct a party fight for continuation of
publicity of income tax returns; re-
peal of which is provided for in the
house revenue bill now before the
Senate finance committee.
The Democratic members of the
committee, under the leadership of
Senator Simmons of North Carolina,
did agree, however, on a program of
tax reduction which they will propose
as a substitute for that written into
the bill by the house.
The substitute schedules, which are
to be completed at a final conference
tomorrow, will call for tax reduction
amounting to more than $400,000,000
this year, it was indicated, at least
$70,000,000 more than provided by the
house measure, which has been en-
dorsed in general by Secretary Mel-
lon and the administration.
In their program for greater tax re-
duction, the Democrats are expected
to propose repeal of the automobile,
admission and other numerous mis-
cellaneous taxes not touched by the
house, and a slight reduction in the
corporation tax.
There are indications also that the
Democrats will seek revision of the
income surtax and inheritance tax
schedules in the bill to increase the

whether discipline would be

Meeting Of Antlracite Miners
Operators Adjourns ,ier
Reaching No Agreement


(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Jan. 8.-Anthracite
miners and operators .who are at-j
tempting to negotiate a new wageI
contract to end the long coal strike,
l adjourned tonight until tomorrow
afternoon without announcing any
agreement. The only official word
that came from the conference room
to the public, was as follows:
"At today's session of the anthraciteI
committee there was a continuation
of the effort to reach an agreement.
At the suggestion of the chairman, an
adjournment was taken until 2 o'clock
An impression had gone abroad
that the negotiators would follow cus-
tom and not sit on Saturday, but with
the fannouneement of a session tomor-
row, came immediately the question
whether the conferees were getting
anywhere. This was strengthened by
a report that one of the miner's rep-
resentatives earlier in the day had
said a plan was receiving favorable
consideration. Spokesmen for the
miners said there was no basis for
such a Treport.
Major W. W. Inglis, chairman of
the anthracite operator negotiating
committee, and John L. Lewis, head
of the miners' sub-scare committee,
were appealed to for an amplification
of the brief official announcement.
After consulting with their respective
press representatives, it was made
known to the newspapermen that
there was nothing on which to en-
large the statement.
