;The Palmer camp upon receiving
this intelligence jumped to the con
clusion that Mr. McAdoo would file
a petition in theGeorgia primary at'
Mr. Wilson for Palmer.
Thereafter the attorney general
got into communication withj the
president through Secretary Tu
multy and Mrs. Wilson, both of
whom are reputed to be Palmer ad
herents. The result was the com
munication to Mr. Palmer of the de
cision the president had confided to
Ms.. McAdoo, together with express
permission to the attorney general
to announce his candidacy.

formidable fight on the administra
tion being waged in -Georgia by
former Senator Hardwick and Tom
Watson, who are runing Senator
Reed for president, and .he attorney

Mr. McAdoo was still here today
conferring with friends sn the tiues
tio.i of announcing his candidacy
and making a bid for delegates,
despite his recently assumed de
termination to seek no delegates
and his advocacy of uninstructed
delegations and a free selection of
the candidate by the convention. It
is generally believed that, with
Palmer srarnering instructed dele-
ffates as the beneficiary of the pow'

"We have not changed our

laid before the committee hv Mr.
D'Olier, who said that the American

were: -

Musical night at the show. During
the entire" day orchestral numbers
ranging from popular jazz tunes
to grand opera and classical pieces
were played by the three orchestras,
which were augmented for the occa
sion. Elks' Quartet Sings.
In the evening the Elks' quartet
sang in different parts of the show,
making a tremendous hit wherever
theyi appeared, and awakening an
irresistible demand for encores. The
orchestra program was divided into
three parts, the first being equally
divided between popular and classic
numbers, and the last two for the
greater part classical.

Blood-Iron Phosphate
For Weak, Thin Folks
WeaTt, thin, nervous people almost in
variably owe their condition to lack ot
phosophate in the nerves and lack ot
iron in the blood. On of the surest,
quickest and safest ways ' in which to
make up the deficiency is to take with
each meal a five-grain tablet of digestible
phosophate and iron known among drug
gists here as Blood-Iron Phosphate; be
cause it supplies iron to the blood as
well as phosphate to the nervous sys
tem. People who have tried it say that
one five-grain tablet taken with each
meal quickly restores depleted nervous
energy, enriches the blood, increases
strength. ' vitality and endurance, and
those who are too thin usually put on
pounds, of solid stay-there flesh in a
short time. Inasmuch as Sherman Mo
Connell Drug Co. and all other druggists
are authorised to sell Blood-Iron Phos
phate under a guarantee of satisfaction or
money back, every thin, weak, nervous
or anemi man or woman should give- it
a trial without delay. '

Canadian Tells the
Commissioners of
Town Planning
Thomas Adams of Ottawa, head
of the department of town housing
and planning of the Dominion of
Canada addressing the city council
yesterday, stated that one of the
largest problems of many cities is
to overcome the economic waste of
supporting an area which would
house a population seveVal times
that of the present.
He referred to Omaha as a case
in point, asserting that this city is
spread out over an area of iJY
square miles, with 40 per cent of
that area vacant.
"Omaha is running a municipal
plant on an area which would ac
commodate 500,000 population," he
said. "The remedy for these condi
tions is the zoning plan of city de
velopment." Mr. Adams stressed the point
that one of the main problems in
building an industrial center is prop
er. transportation facilities. He em
phasized good housing conditions
for workmen, a Question which a
few years ago, he said, was regarded
merely as a sentimental rather than
as a practical question. Public
health and recreation he also stated
were important matters for consider
ation by those who are entrusted
with the administrations of the af
fairs of a city.
Aerial Mail Service,
N. Y. to Chicago, Saves
u.o.qiuu,uuua iear
New York, March 2. Aerial mail
sertice "is not costing the public
one cent, but saving the people
more than $00,00 a year," Assist
ant Postmaster General Praeger
informed members of the Rotary
club at their "aviation" dinner here.
"It costs considerable less than
$400,000 a year," he said, "to oper
ate a 1,500-pound mail capacity air
plane one .round trip daily between
New York and Chicago, and by the
establishment of such a schedule
the Postoffic department has been
able to discontinue nearly $500,000
worth of railroad distributing space
and clerical hire."
Introduction within a short time
of a 10-hour airplane service be
tween New York and San Fran
cisco at an altitude of 20,000 feet
was predicted by Glenn L. Martin
of Cleveland, another speaker. This
altitude, he cxplaihedwould insure
a shunshing trip, as aUstorm strata
are at low altitudes.
Calls Investigation of
"Anti-Saloonists" Comical
Albany, N. Y., March 2. William
H. Anderson, state superintendent
of the Anti-Saloon laague, declares
that "there are so many comical
aspects of the proposed "investiga
tion" of the Anti-Saloon league's
activities, as authorized in a resolu
tion adopted by tne assembly last
night, that it is hard to take it
"The Anti-Saloon league has
violated no law and I have been

for 20 years," he said.
