LOUIS, Mo., Doc. conference of liberals, known as the committee of 48. was unable to open its first national convention here on schedule time today because it had no meeting place as the re- sult of charges of alleged disloyalty brought against it by the American Legion. Whether the conference would be deferred wns a matier for conjecture. It was said that efforts would be made to hold a convention else- where in the event the management of the hotel where the conference was to be held remained firm in its refusals to countenance the' meet- ing. Delegates asserted the principle object of the conference was to for- mulate a program to solve the eco-! tivvnic and social problems confront- ing the country and- 10 improve the. inu rnatlonal relations of the Unit- ed States and to adopt a definite plan of political action to enforce the program.

We have had promises from thi' first frost, down the line of Ihe thermometer to the zero point, and we find today that the promises of the- local gas company are not worth a tinker's damn. We are told that it is a matter of the pressure will be put on forthwith, and that we have ha.l the last of our gas troubles. But another blizzard brings another gas shortage, and it is the heathen's repe- tition- of the same old trouble. Zero weather and the lowest supply of the season places the market value of promises i'.xr below the zero mark of performance. If there is no gas in the local field, we are entitled to know it so that we can make other arrangements. If there is-an ample supply, we want to know in the Almighty's name why that supply is not turned loose. If the system is defective and the mains are rotten, the people have a right to know it. If the local management is working under the orders of its foreign president to hold the pressure down to a passing minimum, the people have a right to know that. No matter what the trouble is, the people have a 'right to have that trouble removed. If the trouble is beyond the power of correction, the people have a right to know the worst. But the people have had all the promises they want. The promises they have had are altogether without value. As the long suffering and extremely suffering public shiver about the tiny blue flame they want to know why former promises have not been kept. They want gas or they want to know why it cannot be sup- plied.
