STEEL PLANTS TO
TIME TO U.S. WORK
'.Action Follows Complaints of
- Ship Construction Works, Who
: Declare Yards Run Short
(By AMoriated frraa.)
Washington, April 5. To speed up
the ship-building program the war
board has issued orders to steel
plants and fabricating plants to make
100 per cent deliveries on all orders
for steel ship plates from the
emergency fleet corporation. This
will give priority to these orders
ever all others and supplements re
cent orders to the mills to turn out
no plates for commercial purposes.
The action of the board followed
complaints made before the senate
commerce committee yesterday by
George J. Baldwin, chairman of the
board of the American International
Ship Building corporation, which is
building fabricated ships at Hog Is
land, a., that" this yard and some
others are short of ship steel.
At the war industries board it was
taid that there was no general short
age of ship steel, but it was conceded
that shortages probably existed at
gome individual yards. During the
last three months officials of the
board assert sufficient steel to build
ships at the rate of more than six
million tons a year has been turned
ut for the fleet corporation alone.
Further assurances were given the
hipping board today by tht war in-
t dustries board tnat it cetauea in

Annual Event Brings Out Long
List of Able Young Vocal
ists and Instrumentalists.
The Tuesday Musical Club held iti
annual student's program yester
day, following the business meeting
and election ot oincers. The officers
for the ensuing year are: Mrs. R.
Beechef Howell, president; Mrs. C.
M. Wilhelm, vice-president; Mrs. C.
V. Axtell, recording secretary; Mrs.
Arthur Metz, membership secretary;
Mrs. Forrest Richardson, treasurer;
Mrs. George C. Mclntyre. auditor,
and the directors, Mrs. Myron L.
Learned, Mrs, N. P. Dodge, and Mrs.
A. V. Kinsler.
A vast amount of interest was dis
played in the student recital, and the
ball room of the Blackstone Hotel
was filled to capacity and over with
the enthusiastic listeners. This
program is the result of much careful
thought and preparation. A contest
is held in each department of musical
study, and the successful contestants
are chosen in this way for the pro
gram. There were little, girls and big
girls, and a few grown up young
ladies, all of' whom showed interest
and earnestness in their art, and its
satisfactory results. The one lone
young man, Arthur Ringwalt, was not
in the least affected by the prepond
erance of girls upon the program but
did his share with as much sang froid
as any of the rest.
There was much well chosen music
upon the program, and the general
standard of the entire program was
high, and most creditable to the
participants and their teachers.
The program was very long, last
ing until nearly six o'clock, but it
held the interest because of its varie
ty. It would be extremely interesting
at these recitals if the number of
years of study was given under the
name of each pupil, as it would help
the listeners riot to expect as much
perhaps from an older student who
had only studied half as long as from
a younger one who had studied some
years longer, and it would be much
fairer to all the other when certain
students who have done considerable
professional work are also given a
place upon the program with them.
Those taking part in the successful
program of yesterday were: Miriam
Mother, Murial Thomas, Lorraine
Proulx, Ellanore ; Baxter, Arthur
Rjngwalt, Anna Leaf, Mildred Prud
den Rogers, Helen Root, Rose Dub
noff, Helen . Jacobs, Thclma Skeen,
MrV Fred Hill, Flora Shukert,

UNITY AT HOME
ESSENTIAL TO WIN
WAR, SAYS HAYS
Constructive Criticisms Are
Necessary and Should Be
Desired by Those in
Denver, Colo., April 5. Although
unity at home is essential to the
winning of the war, constructive
criticisms are necessary. Will Hays,
chairman of the republican national
commitee declared here tonight in an
addresJ at a public reception attended
by state leaders.
"I would like to assume that such
criticism is desired in Washington,"
said Mr. Hays. "I absolutely can't
begin to understand the mental pro
cesses of the heart beats of men in
high authority in this awful crisis
who wish otherwise; and any refusal
or neglect to use every possible
efficient instrument that will help win
this terrible war, when the need of
them' is so appalling, would be most
responsible. There will be an awful
accounting demanded for such action
as sure as is certain the intelligence
and patriotism of the American
people. I am sure that those who
offer constructiv criticism according
to their patriotic belief will be
patriotic enough to commend, when
ticre is ground for commendation."
' Republicans Doing fuch.
Referring to the part of the re
publican party in the war, Mr. Hays
"The loyalty of the republican
party has always been and always
will be measured only by the possi
bilities. The republican party shall
strive with every means within its
power to win the war and to win the
war now. In this supreme crisis its
patriotic, loyal , membership' will
strike, fight, give and die until we
have a condusive peace-by-victory
and not by compromised bargaining.
Mr. Hays, who is touring the west
to confer with republican leaders, ar
river here this- afternoon and met
immediately with state party leaders.
He will go to Cheyenne, Wyo., to
