PRICE TWO CI on MEN AGAINST RESnUCnNG VOTE Alien Element in Popu¬ lation Centers Has Great Weight lBp«clal iJorre»pontl*nt-«. I Albany, March l.'i.—The leglslatur i bas Kone on record, ao far as the sen¬ ate Judiciary committee Ih concerned, as favorkiK tbe iiaaaage and enactment of the concurrent restdutlou Introducetl by Senator Elon U. Brown of Water- town, temporary president of the sen¬ ate. This proviUes that after llrj<> n,« person w Uo at that time is uot entitled to vote shall lie fieruiltted to do so un¬ less such iirospet'tlve voter is able i • both read aud write the English Ian guage. It may be that the great personal influence of Senator Brown had soiij. weight in having the resoluiion fav.ir- ably rept>rte(i from the Judi.-iary com¬ mittee, t>r the views of the member' may have been such that they regard¬ ed the proposition as a worthy oiiii aud did not consider the opposition t i tbe measure. At any rale. It will soon be on the senate t-alendar, and if it passes that hou.se It will go to the a.s sembiy for consideration. Msaaura Has Many Enemies. The Brown bill, known as the IU- «racy t««t, has many enemies. Thi;i fact develojied at the public hearing, during which many arguments wein WT Perkii'K of ^Iv York elty, the well known fliiancier, as a member of the foods and markets commission as pro- |K>Hed. It r« understood that he will be name<I. I^iose wbo are urging tbe ap- |)olntment by rfie governor of Mr. Per kins point ont thnt his Interest In tbe proposed new commission Is based uiKin public spiritedness and that he will bring to the commission his broad business knowledge, which cannot fall to be a |)enetlt In the administration of the proposetl coniblnetl agricultural and weights antl measures depart¬ ments. Mr. Perkins. It will l>e remem¬ bered, played an Important part In the work t)f Investigating the prt>dnce and dairy affairs of the state, which was used as a part of the framework for the foods IMld markets bill. Because Asseiftblynian Callahan of New Vork, leader of the Henifx-rats hi the lt)wer house, has coinleiniietl the Wicks cominiltee hill it Is taken that the members of tho minority party vvill oppose It when it comes np for linal passage in the as.st-mbly. man Callahan has i-hara measiire,7as one erected for Ihe piirp.ise of pn|f.)nage. He has Introdu.ed a bill of Ills own upon the same subject, yet (piite (IllTeieut. since it provides for a bond issue for tin- purpose of establishliig terminal markets In the cities of the state fo sell prt^duco at cost or with a small profit to the state Can Nova/ Meet Deficiencies. The apiuoval of the euiergency ap I)roprlati.)u bill by the governor has now made it possible fo meet the de- liciencies of cliarifable institutions be caii.se of the increast-d prices of food and materials which were incurred last year. To 8U|i|)ly the absolute necessa¬ ries In the prisons, hospitals and char¬ itable institutions of the state up to July 1, lilii, the beginning of the next Hscal year, will call for the greatei" ^ ssenibly- •.l/.ed the PARENTS SHOULD !WINDOW DISPLAY REIFSCHNEIDER TO IHRE PAmOL CO.

Kor this reason it may be defeated In the assembly Inj portion of the *81'.2,1'2'.».78 aiiproprlated the event that it passes the senate. Itj In the bill among other items for that la predicted that the vote of the mem- piirpo.se, the grand total of which lit beni of the lower house will be against |l,3a.'!.4!n».7;i tbe resolution. A large number of the assemblymen are frt)m the cities of tbe first class and thus represent many foreign born who do not read or writ.. English and who are solidly opiiosed to tbe proposition that those who come to America from their native land.-t shall be required to bid adieu to the!/ native tongues ^d adopt the language and literature of tne Fnltetl States. The fact that America is threatened ¦with warfare is one of the strong rea¬ sons. It Is said, why all who tlwell here aud share the system of govern¬ ment should unite and adhere to Instl- tutit)n8 and customs which prevail. This argnineiit was brought mit at tlu hearing and will be nsetl when the tie- bate !s wagtHl mion the bill. •Whitman Favors Preparedness Plans. (Jovernor Whitman has come boldly Into the o|)4>ii antl nnn()Uiic(^il that In ¦will favor all pbiiiM for iireparednes i advtK'ated by llu. legislature. In :. statement given tiiil he .-alls nttontio i to the bill Introduced by Senalo.^ Theodore Douglas ICoblnson of One.d-i county, which .-alls for a census of lb- assets t)f llie stale whicli iniglit In necessary to be made available in .-as • of war. Tlie executive calls aiioniinn to the fact that tlie Unbinsnn bir Is iiiotf^'oinprebeiislvo than the prnvl sitiiis (if tho milliar.v law. which .-on templates the enrollment of ablobotli.-.l male cltb.ens of the state who aro be¬ tween the ages of elght<»en and fort.v flve years. "The census and Inventtiry of re Boiirces of this slate." says the gover nor, "nvallable for use In the event ot war would Uielude wonien available for service as well as the men, nioney, the Industrial and niaterlal resour.-es of the state, niunltltuis and military supplies nianufa.-lured or prociiralili- within the state Military strength tft'pends upon the orgnnl/.ntlon of such resourt-es, .V knowledge of such ns sets available for use in the event of war would l>e of undoubted advantage to the ftnleral and state authorlllea," The gtiveriior adds that he has al n>ady directed the adjutant general to millae to the fullest extent the In formation obtnlnnble from a state t-en- ¦ns which has only re(-ently been (-om- l>1ete<l and which should afford snb- stanllal Inftirinatlon on which to bas > enrollment. f\e says, however, In ad ditlon, that a mere list of names can be of little value. "If the act referred to Is passed by the legislaiui-e," (Jovernor Whitman promises. "It will have my approval ts provltling additional means of car rj'lng forwani the work of military preparetliieas, to all measures for the KH'ompllshtnent of whIcJi I have given my heartiest stipixirt" and encourage ment." Fight on Food Control Bill. It has develo|K>tl that the hill aimed to reduce the high cost of living and presented by the Wicks committee ap- •pointed, last year to investigate fooil ¦nd dairy conditions is likely to havt- a tempestuous passage through the legislature unlesa certain amendmeuts are made to it. It Is predicted, From • reliable source comes the declarstloii tbat as tbe bill uow stands it is objec¬ tionable to many influential people throughout the state. In aptte ot tbe fact that farmers In vaanj secttons of tbe state are said to ti9ik£t la tbfi, iPfiolfitiBeiit. of a(i>rse In addition to the amount set aside for the penal and charitable Institu¬ tions of the state, there is an Item of i|!200.(X»ii for the construction of a build- ing for horses at the state fair. Thi.-4 apiiropriation was necessary If circuit races were to be held at the state fair at Syracnse In September next. Coinmenthig upon the emergency ap¬ proiirlatlon bill, now a law, the ex¬ ecutive has this to say: "In this appropriation bill the num¬ ber of items for each departnient is s.i small that no delay should tncur t<i the enactiuent of the approprtatlon." 500,000 Men Available In State. That there are over half a mlllio;i men who are available for lullltary servhe In this state in the event tbd Eulted Stalefl be( oines engaged In wal Is the statement made to .VdJutanI (ieneral Stotesbury by Deputy ('om¬ missioner of Health Williams. Ahoul au etpial number of meu are avallablj for se(ondary defense. Dr. Williami reports also. The flgures of the staU health department are based upon ceic sus data and past ex|>erlenee regard ing the physical condltlou of men pre¬ senting themselves for eiillHtments. Oovernor Whitman will shortly dis¬ pose of the bill iHOvldlng for universal military training for all boys in .New" York state, the senate and assembly having both nassed the measure. ()fll( CIS of the New Vork .State Wo¬ man Suffrage party have not [iresse.l a vote In the senate upon the propos¬ etl erpial rights constitutional ainend- nient and will not until there Is a ful' attendance. The leaders In the fight to set-lire the franchise for women sa.V that there Is a very strong sentiiueni In every senatorial dlslrk". In the stat< relative to the vote of the leglslafot, from that distriet upon the amend' ment and that In consideration of thai fact It has been deddetl to wall until there Is a full attendance before a vot« Is asked. Birth Control Bill Dead. That the iiresent se.-^slou of the New' Vork state legislature will not i)asil odd laws is evineetl by the fact that the death blow has already been dealt the measure vvhieh seeks to distributo widely under tlie protection of a stat¬ ute, literature relative to birth ctintrol. May Not Prohibit Boxing. In spite of the desire of (Jovernof Whitman that boxing exhibitions in .New Vork state be discontinued through the reiieal of the present laW perniittlng the sport under tho direc¬ tion of the state athletic commission, au attempt will be made by influentinl leglslal'Jis to obtain the consent of tbti executive that the bill before both houses aimed to abolish the boxlmj commissioners be so amended that tha ring game may be continued. .V sub- commit lee of the senate Judiciary com¬ mittee has waited upon the governof and requested that he be more lenient and help devise some way whereby the siKirt be strictly regulated. Senator George K. Thompson, chair¬ man of tlie committee of the legisla¬ ture named some time ago to investi¬ gate the affairs of the first and second dtsfrtct public service commissions, ts working out legislation to conform with the recommendations made in the report of that committee. Among tlje recommendations. Ill, question Ig. that For some time back it has been a matter plainly to be seen, that the parents of the students of the Free- port Public Schools are not giving the support due the students in af¬ fairs presented by the school. This is especially true of the par¬ ents and friends of the high school students. In high school as well as in all other organizations, there must be something to keep up the interest of the metnbers. There must be re¬ creation along with the study or else It would become a drudgery. The syllabus of the New "Y'ork State Educational Department, dis- tfnctly divides the education into two parts-work and play. Although the ftrst is probably the most essential the latter must by no means be for¬ gotten. Th(} "play" of the Freeport High School is divided into two branches— The Student Association, which has to deal with athletics, and 'The Student," a paper published by the students in which it is intendt^d to put forth the achievements of the students along the line of literature and sports and give the other schools an idea of what the schtwl can do. Some who might not be able to con¬ tribute much to the line of sports, might be able to show their talent by contributing a story, editorial, or criticlsni, to the school paper. In fhis way each student ts in some way interested in the welfare of the school and it is this interest that makes school life 'a success. These branches cannot be rug with¬ out your support and we ask that you support all our .school affairs, both financially and mentally. You may say, "There are too many benefits and entertainments in the school." If we had more support from you In some of these affairs, they would nrjf need to come so often. Think fhis over; then COME OUT AND HEEP. (signed) f;. W. D.

NO CONTEST FOR VUlAGEOFHi Disgusted with Methods of The Demo¬ crats Continued on Page 1 OLD MASSAPEQUA RESDENT IS DEAD .Mrs. John C. Anderson, for many years a respected resident of Massa¬ pequa, died on Friday March 9th, at the home of friends in Brooklyn, where she was visiting. The funeral services were held at 1042 Bergen St. Brooklyn, on Sunday afternoon and the Interment >vas in the family plot in Greenwood Celnet€#y, on Monday morning. .Mrs. Anderson was born in 1838 in Philadelphia, the daughter of James and -Mary Wray. In 1861 she married John C. Anderson, a prominent cilizen who developed the East .Massapequa section and died a few years ago. She is survived by a son, John W. Anderson, president of the Ma.ssa- petjua Board of Trade, and by a daughter, Mr.*?. A. M. Nimmo, with whom she had made her home in East .Massapetiua. .Mrs. Anderson, was a consistent Christian woman, for many years a member of the Church of the stranger. New York City, but at the time of her death a member of Grace Episcopal Church, Massa¬ pequa. She was a member of Alpha Chapter, Eastern Star, since 1865 and for many years treasurer of the order Although past 78 years of age, she was very |ctive mentally and physic¬ ally, often walking several miles, and less than 24 hours before her death was with her daughter shopping in the Brooklyn stores. .Mrs. Anderson was of the old school type of woman whom the young wo¬ men of to-day will do well to emulate for while in her younger days she waa well known socially in New York where her early married life was spent, and had up to her death taken great interest in all that pertained to the community, her flrst consid¬ eration was her fainily and her home. A large number of Massapequa friends attended the funeral and our greatest sympathy Is extended to her son and daughter. ENDORSES ACTION OF THE PRESIDENT Freeport, N. Y.. Feb. 9, 1017. Hon.
