commerce is the watch tower of
the Community. When a community
wishes to speak, it does so through its
commercial organization. Xo city of

to be without such an organization
Its the biggest asset to any community.
The stronger 't Is and the more active,
the greater asset it is. Cities and com.
munities are judged by the visitor aft-
merciai organization. Its the first
place a visitor goes and if he finds the
organization inactive and poorly sup
ported, he Is not well impressed with
the city and loses interest in what the
city has to offer. On the other hand,
if he finds an. active up to date Com
mercial Club, he knows quickly that
the city Is progressive and the spirit of
the community is reflected favorably
through ita community building or

FORDNEY TARsFF BILL
WJLL BE PUT THROUGH
AT SPECIAL SESSION
If Plan " Meets Approval of
President Will . be Passed
as Vetoed bj Ex-President.
WASHINGTON, March 22. A. P.) 1
-The Fnirie-V emergency tariff bill,
s vetoed by former President Wilson, "
) will be rushed through congress In ,
the extra sess on.
Acceding to the request of President
Harding for passage of a measure de
signed to help farmers, asking for pro
tection against foreign competition,
republican members of the house ways
and means committee turned about
and,, voted to- revive the Fordney blU
after agreeing a week ago not to con
sider any emergency legislation ahead '
of a permanent tariff and revenue re
vision. ' - .
Senators Penrose, Smoot and Mc
Cumbcr of the senate finance commit
tee agreed to the new program, which
it was explained, meets approval of
the president. Senator Penrose ex
pressed the. belief that the emergency
measure would be in the hands of Mr.
Harding within 10 days after the con
vening of the special session in April.
"The Fordney bill," said Chairman
Penrose, "will be put through j con
gress without the crossing of a "t" or
dotting of an "1." The president
stepped Into the fight when he tele
phoned Mr.' Fordney suggesting" an
emergency agricultural measure be en.
aeted In advance of tariff or revenue
legislation. The proposal took: the
committee off its feet. There were
rutnhlings of. discontent, especially
among western members who objected
to the idea of going before congress a
second time this year to ask: for a
special bill. ,
The cabinet had expected to take up
the tariff revenue tangle tomorrow but
In view of the sudden agreement, the
question may not be discussed. When
the house ni4-is April 11 tlfcre will be
three bills awaiting action emergen
cy tariff, anti-dumping and American
valuation. How soon thereafter the
permanent measure might be ready
members declined to say.
In some quarters there was a belief
that an attempt might be made In the
senate to hold op the Fordney bill but
revenue fmmers said this possibility
did not exist, since the measure had
the president's endoremcnt.
