Time for School Again and
New Lessons Mean New Clothes
The first day of school means a new dress a every schoolgirl knows.
It means, before that, cutting and stitching and basting and trying on as
every mother knows.
The new school clothes may be a task to wear the nerves and weary the
fingers. But it won't be if she uses the modern, enlightened pattern to work
The New McCall Pattern
This new Pattern has printed lines to guide you in cutting accurately. Ar
rows printed on the pattern tell you the straight of the goods, printed notches

MUST USE CARE
The reckless driving along the
avenues of the city at the time when
the school children are going to and
from their homes must cease or the
parties doing this will be made to
suffer the full penalty of the law.
There have been a number of in
stances where cars have narrowly
missed children and especially on
Washington avenue and in order to
curb this practice Chief of Police
Barclay is preparing to launch a
campaign that will assure more safe-,
ty to the little folks enroute to school
by having the drivers make a little
less speed, which, while it may be
irksome to the drivers, certainly wilt
result in saving the possibility of
death to some one and a burden on
the mind of the driver of the car
that might cause the injury of some
child. In reaching the Central build

Attorney General Defines Eail In

lence and Harding Agrees
Washington, Sept. 5. The injunc
tion obtained in Chicago against
striking shopmen by the government,
Attorney General Daugherty said to
day, will not be used to abridge per
sonal liberty, nor will freedom of
speech or the press be interfered
with. But. lie added, "freedom of
speech and freedom of press does not
mean those mediums may be used to
incite riots or murders."
The attorney general also declar
ed that the injunction had not been
obtained to force men to work, nor
was it a move to prevent strikes.
The statement of Mr. Daugherty
which was made to newspaper corre
spondents, followed earlier declara
tion by a White House spokesman af
ter today's cabinet meeting that
President Harding felt the injunc
tion would not in any way endanger
the constitut ional rights of men on
strike or of other citizens. But. it was
added, the Chicago injunction pro
ceedings would be followed up with
the detemiinat ion of preventing in
terference with transportation.
Just how far the government
would be obliged to go with prosecu
tions against individuals, the White
House spokesman said, could only be
determined by events. It was indi
cated that no activities in connec
tion with the strike outside of court
matters were row in progress.
Attorney General Daugherty in
his statement declared there would
be no objection by the department
of justice to moetings cf union men
to perform any of their functions
"that do not interfere with inter
state commerce or otherwise violate
"If any one undertakes to abridge
personal liberty," he added, "I will
be as vigorous in upholding the peo
ple's rights as I am vigorous in op
The attorney general expressed
the belief that the strike situation
would "quiet down" this week, and
added: "I do not want to go any
further in these proceedings than is
necessary. I want to be reasonable
about it, but not so reasonable as to
let the government and the people
be trampled upon."
Responding to a question, the at
torney general said he thought a
court would construe advocacy of
picketing as bring in violation of
Judge Wilkerson's temporary re
Reports to the department of jus

NEW JUSTICE IN
John H. Clarke Has Tendered His
Resignation to President; Ef
fective September 18th.
Washington, Sept. 4. Resignation
of Associate Justice John H. Clarke
from the United States supreme court
and the intention to appoint Former
Senator George H. Sutherland of
Utah to succeed him was announced
today by President Harding. Justice
Clarke's resignation will become ef
fective September 18, when he reach
es the age of sixty-five years.
A desire to serve his neighbors and
"some causes" in ways which would
not be possible while he was holding
public office was given by Justice
Clarke in a letter to the president as
the impelling reason for his leaving
the bench. A retirement from public
life at sixty-five, he added, would
conform to his "philosophy of life."
Senator Sutherland, who has been se
lected for the vacancy, is sixty years
old. He was born in Buckingham,
England, in 1862. He served Utah in
