Award at All-Day Hearing
"With Seattle Builders.
SEATTLE, "Wash.. July 18. (Spe
cial.) Charles M. Schwab, director
general of shipbuilding: operations for
the Emergency Fleet Corporation, and
Charles A. Piez, vice-president of that
branch of the United States Shipping
Board, will meet with Pacific Coast
delegations of both shipyard operators
and the employes who build the ships,
and the United States Shipping Board's
wage adjustment board at Philadelphia
on August 5 to settle the wage ques
tion now affecting the shipbuilding
This was the programme agreed
upon after an all-day conference par
ticipated in by Mr. Schwab during the
morning, and carried on for the rest
of the day by Mr. Piez and Mr. Cuthell.
the latter being the Shipping Board's
3Ionter Lnncheon Given.
Mr. Schwab, accompanied by
Eaton and a number of shipbuilders,
most of wham were from the Grays
Harbor district, left at 2:40 this after
noon for a visit to that section, but be
fore their departure they attended a
monster luncheon given under the aus
pices of the Seattle Chamber of Com
merce and Commercial Club at the
Arena at noon.
The labor situation, which had been
in a more or less unsettled state ever
Since the findings of the Wage Adjust
ment Board, known s.s the Macy com
mission, made last Fall, is now ger
erally admitted to have reached a
more satisfactory stage for complete
adjustment than has been the case at
any previous stage since the Govern-
ment entered into its gigantic ship
building programme.
Today the wage question, working
conditions in the various plants and
differences in the scale paid in the
Skinner & Eddy plant and the Macy
award formed the principal topic dis
Adjustment ot Arranged.
During the morning conferences both
Mr. Schwab and Mr. Piez frankly In
formed the representatives of the Metal
Trades Council, and later in the day the
latter imparted the same information
to the shipyard officials, that they were
not in a position to arrange any read
justment of the wage question by them
selves, as that particular matter rested
virtually entirely with the adjustment
board comprising V. Everett Macy
Charles A. Coolidge and .A. J. Berres.
There were, however, several working
conditions called to their attention
which they promised to remedy, or at
least Charles M. Schwab, as Director of
Shipbuilding, did.
The nature of the labor requests as
well as the tentative rearrangement of
certain conditions were withheld pend
ing the return of the visiting shipping
board officials to Philadelphia, where
they contemplate the framing of an
entirely new shipyard schedule em
bracing the new conditions as well as
the satisfactory portions of the exist
ing schedule.
Dr. Allen P. Koyes Lectures on Proper
Feeding Before Large Crowd
at Liberty Temple.
Mayhap It is the crystal water of
Bull Run that lends to Portland babies
stature and stamina beyond their
years, or tha celebrated Oregon clime,
or both. At any rate. It is certain that
many of them have raced ahead of
their ages, according to the records
which are being made at Liberty Tem
ple during "better babies" week, which
closes tomorrow.
In one family the . investigators
found a trio of such examples yester
day, and the smiling mother bore
away the official testimonials to the
very superior young Americans she
has given to the Nation. The children
are Belva Tobin, Celsey Tobin, and
Louis Tobin. of 46 North Sixteenth
street. Belva, the eldest, is 5 years
old, but has the development in height
and weight of an 8-year-old girl. Louis
Tobin, her brother. Is ZVz. but in
weight and height he is far beyond the
third-year average. The real infant
of the family, Celsey. thousrh not S
months of age, has the weight of an
average child of 11 months, and the
neignt or an 8-months-old babv.
Yesterday at the free clinic Dr. Allen
P. Noyes lectured on the proper feed
ing of children, answering many ques
tions as they were asked by attendant
mothers. The clinic conducted this
afternoon will be under the direction
of Dr. W. G. Patrick. Tomorrow after
noon, the conclusion of the week, will
mark the visit of Mrsl W. K. Davis, of

story of a young man looking
excitement and thrills, and
the audience will experience the same
excitement and thrills in watching the
picture. It Is a regular "Daredevil
Dock" story of plots and counter-plots
for kidnaping a girl: the hero foiling
the plot of the villain, and his won
derful fight against the gang of crooks
who are attempting to hold him and
his fiancee prisoner while they blow
up the warehouse, and also the ship,
which is starting forth loaded with
supplies for the allies.
William Russell, athletic star, whose
popularity has been increasing rapidly
of late, contributes many a strong-man
feat to the thrills of this picture. The
plot is highly colored, but one is not
expected to take it too seriously, and
it can't fail to amuse and thrill at the
same time.
Gregory Thorne and Marta Millbanke
(Charlotte Burton) are a pampered
young engaged pair, but are opposed
to conventional engagement and mar
riage, so decide upon an elopement.
Gregory hires four second-story men
to effect an abduction at the same
time an emissary of a foreign gov
ernment decides to abduct Marta to
hold her as hostage, until her father.
a shipper, promises to stop shipments
to the allies.
In the darkness Gregory's men and
Eckstrom's meet and complications en
sue. The arrival of the police adds
to the excitement. Marta mistakes one
gang for the other and permits her
self to be carried off. Gregory, who
pursues, is captured and the two held
as hostages. Eckstrom threatens to
blow up the Gregory warehouses and a
ship, but Gregory outwits Eckstrom by
a clever ruse, saves Marta from death
and compels Eckstrom to reveal the
hiding places of the infernal machines.
For once the young people are sated
with adventure.

There's a new show at the Sunset

Instead of waiting until Sunday,
"American Aristocracy" will be the
Fairbanks comedy-drama, while Bill

The bill partakes of an all-star of
ferlng,, for In addition to Hart and
Fairbanks their supporting casts In
clude Jewel Carmen, Portland girl
Louise Glaum, Clara Williams and Rob

"American Aristocracy" is a clever
satire on the society side of the life
of the Industrial barons, with Fair
banks in the role of a Southerner and
bug-hunter who falls In love with a
daughter of a hat-pin aristocrat and
wins her through a series of episodes
involvfng smugglers and a United

"Hell's Hinges" Is a dramatic tale
of the West, with Hart as a bad man
who falls victim to the Innocence and
beauty of a preacher's sister and from
preacher-baiter becomes an ardent
champion of the small religious crowd
in the wxld frontier town.
