United States Chamber of Com- merce, through its vice president, Elliot II. Goodwin, sent an ap- peal to its business and commercial organizations to urge their senators to pass the ship subsidy bill. In the appeal he said: "These fundamental principles of national safety, as well as commercial progress are involved in this bill: J. Maintenance of our present position as the second maritime power of the world. 2. Regulation of the American flag to the overseas trade routes of the world. 3. Creation and development of a privately owned and private operated American Merchant Ma- rine.

Sister, following her experience, is under the care of physicians at the School. Sister Cecilia, returning to her school yesterday in a dazed condi- tion, said she was in the music room of the school when a man and a wo- man entered. The woman struck her with a sand bag and the man clapped a handkerchief over her face, and she lost consciousness. She said she revived in a dingy room in Baltimore and heard the couple plotling to hold her for ran- som. Finding her coat and hat in the room, she escaped and made her way back to school. Police seeking to inlerogate her and check up her slory, were told that her condition would not stand questioning. Situated on the National High- way at a point midway between the towns of Burlington and Graham, the Thompson-Sexton Manufacturing Company, a two year-old industrial enterprise, is fast developing into Washington, Feb. Harding has let it be known in Hie Senate that be will not accept a compromise on the ship subsidy bill. This ultimatum has definitely spiked the latest strategic attempt of the Democrats to revise the measure more to their liking, and further complicate the congressional situa- tion. Mr. Harding believes that aincnil- i men is compromise's would nullify effect of the whole subsidy in so 'much as shippers feel reluctant to accept the proposition with strings tied so that congress could jerk it back every yiir.
