By The Associated Trets.
Paris, April 27. The Chamber of
Deputies Tuesday gave Premier Bri
and full liberty of action after hear
ing his report on the reparations con
ference and by the declaration, "If on
May 1. satisfactory proposals, with
acceptable guarantees are .not made
by the German government, the
Ruhr will be occupied," the'1 cham
ber voted confidence hi the govern
ment, 424 to 29, with 59 deputies ab
staining from voting.
M. Briand said he had full con
fidence that if the Washington gov
ernment decided to .transmit the
German counter-proposals they
would be such as to safeguard the
interests of the allies on reparations.
"But," he added, "there is another
violation of the treaty of Versailles
which Germany cannot invoke the
impossibility of fulfilling, namely,
disarmament, which it has failed to
carry out." ,
Allies in Agreement.
In his statement M. Briand said
that France and Great Britain were
completely in agreement so far as
fl. .,,;, jirl ri rrtrriv. mpn ,ntes
was concerned. He reviewed an tne
violation by Germany of the treaty
of Versailles, laying especial em
phasis on Germany's failure to dis
arm in accordance with the treaty,
its refusal to pay 1.000.000,000 gold
marks on March 23, failure to trans.-
ter its gold reserve and nonpay
ment of 12,000,000.000 gold -marks
remaining due on May 1.
The premier declared that the Ger
man proposal that Washington medi
ation was-"another dodge to gain
tune, and continued
"We have confidence in the loy-
alty and perspicacity ,ot the. govern
ment oi the united Mates to taKe
only such initiatives as it is certain
are in conformity with the interests
of the allies. But so far as France
is concerned, our dispositions are
taken for the day when the debt
comes- due."
This was greeted with cheers from
the chamber.

Conf crenceToday.
Bj The Associated rrei.
London, April 27. A three hours'
conference today between the miners
and the mine owners with Sir Robert
"Stefhcnson Home, chancellor of
the exchequer,, presiding, brought the
disputants in the- coal strike no
nearer an agreement, although the
mine owners amended their pro
posals. '
However, hope was expressed over
the fact that the miners had agreed
to meet Sir Robert Wednesday
morning, after which the chancellor
will have a separate conference with
the mine owners.
In a statement issued after today's
conference, the miners' . federation
says that on both the fundamental
issues at stake a national pool of
wages and a wages. board the mine
owners' new proposals represent no
advance at all . toward' an agree
ment." '
The proposals of the owners were
as follows:
First, that for a temporary period
any change in wfages shall ' be on a
flat rate basis in each area.
Second, that the wages rate shall
be calculated on the area instead of

Of these 'proposals, the miners
say: Firt, the miners' demnd for
flat rate advances. and reductions on
a national basis are in no way met;
second, that ' the areas are only a
minqr variation from the old dis
tricts and, third that capital, having
always based its claim to reward cn

Nebraska Solon
Holds Record for
Bills Introduced
Measures to Amend Harm
Loan Act and Provide Pub
lic I. C. C. Hearings of
Importance to State.
Washington Correspondent Omaha Bee.
Washington, D. C, April 27.
(Special Telegram.) Congressman
McLaughlin of the Fourth Nebraska
district holds the record for bills in
troduced by an individual representa
tive, 24 measures falling into the
basket yesterday being credited to
the man from York. Some of these
bills are of prime importance to the
great agricultural interests of the
state, notably his bills to amend the
federal farm loan act and to provide
for public hearings and public decis
ions for the Interstate Commission
and the Federal Reserve board.
McLaughlin's bill to amend the
federal farm loan act provides for a
maximum loan of $25,O0 to one bor
rower in place of $10,000 maximum
under existing law.
$10,000 Loan Too Small.
"This bill is greatly ngeded
throughout the central west," said
the congressman.
"The practical successful farm in
eastern Nebraska and Iowa ranges
from 160 to 320 acres, the value an
acre being between $200 and $300. ..A
loan of $10,000 is entirely too small
to help either in the purchase of the
farm or its improvement."
Of his bill doing away with star
chamber sessions of the Chamber of
Commerce and the Federal Reserve
board and making their hearings and
decisions public Mr. McLaughlin
"My bill requires those boards
when rendering decisions to publish
the names of members supporting the
action and those in opposition, as is
done by the supreme court."
Policy Wrought Havoc.
"If this bill had been a law when
the federal reserve board inaugurated
its drastic deflation policy, which
wrought much havoc to the agricul
tural interests of the country and all
but produced a national panic, the
board would never have dared sug
gest such a policy, let alone enter
upon it.
Mr. McLaughlin also reintroduced
his bill with certain modifications .to
regulate packers. Other bills he in
troduced provide for the donation of
captured German cannon to the cities
of Wahoo, Osceola, Aurora, York,
Seward, David City, Wilbur. Crete,
Milford, Hebron, Beatrice, Fairbury
and Geneva.

Advertisers Seeking
Greater Efficiency Per ,
Inch of Space Used
Washington, April 27. Although
there has been no considerable reduc
tion in advertising space used.
American business men during the
present period of business depression,
are seeking greater efficiency per inch
of space, according to the domestic
distribution department of the Cham
ber of Commerce of the LTnite.i
This department has just complet
ed a survey made for the purpose ot
determining what manufacturers, re
tailers and wholesalers are doing to
cut overhead expenses as a means of
meeting the demand for lower prices.
"What have you done to reduce
your publicity to a normal basis?"
was one of the questions asked. More
than a fourth of those answering
said that they had cut down adver
tising space, but that was in part
balanced by reports from many
others who found depression a justi
fication for an increased use of ad
vertising. '

absence, the period to be determined
by you, sufficient to prepare for work
in other fields of activity."
' It is said the trustees announced
the future policy of the university
will be on the plans laid down by
its founder, S. B. Brown, and his
partner, O. H. Kinsey. This is taken
to mean that dances and fraternities

saying they were solar cook stove
canned, which looked good and "tast

The apparatus, Dr. Abbot said,
was a "concave, parabolic, cylindric

of ordinary cylinder oil to absorb
heat from the reflector and apply it
to the cooking compartment, insula
