WASHINGTON, May 25. Efficiency
of private management and the jus
tice of the railroads' demands for a
billion dollars additional revenue
were defended by railroad represen
tatives today before the interstate
commerce commission apainst cross

Under private control the roads ex
pect to show greater efficiency and
reduced expenses, Daniel Willard,
president of the Baltimore & Ohio
railroad, declared in answer to ques
tions by Glenn E. Plumb, representing
the railway employes. For a period,
Mr. Willard said, preater service will
be demanded which will cut into im
mediate savin? by the roads.
Equipment Declared Lacking.
All the roads were at least one
year behind in their equipment pur
chases, he asserted, adding that the
responsibility for this should be
placed on the war conditions rather
than on government operation.
Frank Nay, v icq-president of the
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific rail
way, explaining the questionnaire sent
out by the roads on which was based
the estimated need of an additional
income of a billion dollars, said that
on account of unsettled conditions
due to the coal strike last fall, fig
ures for the year ending October 31,
1919, were usea.
Freight Rise la Favored.
Additional income should be raised
entirely from freight revenue, Mr,
Nay declared, and not from passen

G. M. Schrlver, vice-president of
the Baltimore & Ohio, described in

Willard on which the carriers of the

the freight increase from 30 to 25 per

MKMOItlAL DAY MESSAGE
SENT TO LEGION.
Celebration Declared Consecrated
to Heroic Dead Who Have
Given Lives for America.
NEW YORK, May 25. A memorial
day message from President Wilson
to American veterans of the world
war was received here today by the
American Legion Weekly. It read:
"We approach the annual celebra
tion of Memorial day with our hearts
filled with tenderest and grateful
memories of those who have given
their lives tor America. The day has
by custom been consecrated to the
country's heroic dead. This is ob
served by those who were comrades
in arms and who shared with the
well-remembered dead, the experi
ences, the hardships, the perils and
the glory of war; this Is celebrated
by the people of the country gener
ally who take it as an annual occa
sion to renew their loyalty to the
country and to draw fresh inspiration
for the tasks of peace from the mem
ory of the sacrifices which were made
eo freely in times of war. The day is
therefore filled with both memories
of the- past and inspirations for the
future. It gathers the traditions of
what we have done in order that we
may have the courage for what we
tave to do.
"Progress moves like an army; it
has its days of training and prepara
tions, its days of conflict and its days
of vindication: it has its campfires
and its memories. To you who were
soldiers of America in the great war,
I send affectionate greetings. What
your arms have done for liberty in
France your spirits will continue to
do for justice at home. Great experi
ences make great men and out of the
tragedy of this test a new, heroic
duality lias come to the American
manhood you represented, and your
country's affections for what you
have already done is only equalled by
its confident hope of the manly i-art
ycu are still to pl-iy."

WASHINGTON. May 25. A treaty
between the United States and Can

fisheries was signed today by Secre
tary Colby for the United States, Am
bassador Gedde3 for Great Britain

The treaty provides for the protec

the "sockeye" and other species of

United States and Canada in the Fra-
SEATTLE. Wash., May 23. "The
necessity of a fishery treaty between
Canada and the United States, cover
ing the taking of sockeye salmon,
arose from the fact that the sockeye
first enters American . waters and
American fishermen are thus given
the first opportunity to take them be
fore they reach Canadian waters and
run up the Fraser to the spawning
grounds." said L. H. Darwin, Wash
ington state fish commissioner.
"Canadian fishing interests have
insisted for years that American fish
ermen were taking too great a per-,
centage of th2 fish and have insisted
UDOn them restricting their opera

that if they did not take the sock
eyes first the Canadians would. Un
able to reach an agreement, fishing
proceeded extensively on both sides
for years, resulting in terriDie aepie
tion of the sockeye run.
"In its original form the treaty con

prohibiting: the use of purse nets on

over the question of soldier relief
With democrats and about 50 re

a new move in the hope of breaking
the combination so that the bill might
be presented to the house not later
Although Chairman Fordney of the
ways and means committee announced
that he planned to call up the
measure Thursday, there were indica
tions of a possible change in the re

stead of tho effort to give the relief

would endeavor to get it before the

In the lower forms of advertising- life, the obsessing
idea is to put a picture of the factory into the space.
If possible, two pictures of the factory.
During the next stage of evolution, the advertising
manufacturer begins every sentence with "we" and tells
all about his business.
When at length he becomes convinced that the way
to sell his prospective customers is to tell them of their
wants, he has graduated from the tyro class.
But there is one more case of advertising measles
he has to have. This is the semi-colon.
It is a matter of life and death importance to him
whether it be a comma or a semi-colon; whether
"gotten" is better than "got"; whether the triangle or
the circle has the deeper "psychological" import.
From the semi-colon attack there emerges the real
advertiser who realizes that 99. of the importance of
his message is to make the reader realize a want which
will be adequately filled by the advertiser's product.
Sincerity of belief dictates the message, and semi-
