The Polish question was the sub

France, the two prime ministers con
sidering what, if anything, could be
done to help the Poies In their pres

Premier Lloyd-George is understood
to have said that In view of the agree

Britain and the Russian soviet gov

do anything more than give dtploma

Milierand Is reported as having re

effort to select a high class personn

was continuous complaint in regard
to the workings of the commission
as a whole.
t'omminHion Important One.
"The great authority which the law
gives this commission over all child
caring agencies of the state makes
it one of the most important bodies
of stat government, and it is quite
essential that as such it work along
harmonious, as well as efficient lines,
so that the various institutions and
child-caring agencies concerned are
not kept in continual turmoil. As
I stated in my letter to each of the
retiring commissioners, I hold the
highest regard for each, individually.
and it is with the keenest regret
that I feel that this commission, a.3
it was constituted, cannot function
In a manner which is for the best in
terest of the state. In the selection
of the new personnel I believe that
this can be done.
"It is my understanding that the
new members of the commission will
sever any connections which they may
hold with any of the child-caring
agencies coming under the control of
the commission, and that they will
devote all of their energies along
child welfare lines to the work of
the commission itself. All of the new
appointees have "had large experience
in child welfare matters and have
been actively interested in such work
for many years.

set up a booth on the sidewalk and

Speakers said that the convention
must guard against charges being

formal resolution of appeal to the
labor party convention which opens
Sunday, asking its delegates to unite
as a body with the committee of 4S
gathering. It was read amidst cheers
and adopted by a rising vote. .
"We realize that there is no mate

ideal, between us," it said in part.
"We feel deeply the obligation rest

us from unifying into one great, suc

"We further suggest that all
