nearly broken up by James Davis who lives near the Sikes home on Hickory street A party of friends from Drqadbrook Thompsonville and other nearby towns who had planned the party in observance of the 40th wedding anniversary of Mr and Mrs Sikes came in automobiles and trucks Plans had been made beforehand so that all might arrive at the Sikes home at the same time In trying to carry out these plans all the ears coming first as well as a large truck stopped according to ar rangements near the Davis home until all had arrived On seeing these people tn the dark the thought came to Mr Davis that the party must be bootleggers who were probably mak ing liquor exchanges and he imme diately called tip by telephone Judge Sikes and told him of his suspicions The judge being no friend of liquor law violators called up Deputy Sher iff Geer and told him to nvestigate at once The deputy sheriff imme diately went to the scene trip was made in record time and the party was intact when he arrived Upon learning of the anxiety to have these people arrested the surprise party became a huge joke in which the sheriff also joined Judge Sikes discovered a min utes later that all those concerned were on their way to his home for th party of which he and his wife were in complete ignorance and then joined in to make it a pleasing event Judge and Mrs Sikes were married In Broadbrook Ct 40 years ago

Meron The office is now temporarily filled by Miss Mary Ross assistant Senator Shea of Holyoke iles Bill in Boston or bidding It rom Our Special Reporter Poston Jan 2 Withdrawal of Sen ator John I' Shea of Holyoke from legislative service is apparently not to diminish his interest in matters of legislation Today he filed with the clerk of the Senate a bill aimed at the practice of employing persons to circulate nomination papers and pledge cards or years in fact since the adoption of the direct primary it has been the practice of office seekers to employ persons to obtain names on nomina tion papers during the last guberna torial campaign Mayor James Cur ley of Boston developed the idea to a further stage by circulating cards pledging the signer to support candidacy The Shea bill provides that person in order to promote his candidacy for public office or that of another shall by the use of a card system or otherwise procure the signed pledges or promises of voters to support such candidacy at the polls or Senator Shea fears that the tre mendous number of pledge cards se cured by Curley reputed to be in ex cess of half a million may had local candidates to resort to the same methods with the result that the Aus tralian Iwillot wall be endangered he said today "that siicli legislation is necessary in order to stop a growing practice that not only become a nuisance to electorate but that contravenes spirit of the Australian ballot "When an individual is asked sign such pledge cards he puts him self on record as to his political faith or opinion and virtually agrees to close his ears to any further argu ment or to consider any possible later developments that might well change i his opinions "ft is obnoxious in that it allows persons of influence to go through factories and mercantile establish ments and offer these pledge cards to arner i witnesses I Dist Atty were light increases on some kinds of Beiond class mall reduce other exist ing second class rates

magazines is authorized in the first second and fourth postal zones with corresponding reductions in the sixth and seventh zones and a decrease ot two cents in the eighth tone Those terms arc conceded to be a victory for newspapers who opposed the postoftice proposal which would increase reading matter two cents a pound and make a ma teria! increase on advertising in all tones The committee

CAS RENCH OER BASIS START OH DEBT IXING (Continued rom irst Page) certain tomorrow's dilpatches would bring all the information desired and give officials here for the first time since the war a concrete proposal from rance for payment of the debts With full possession of the facts Secretary Hughes will transmit them to Secretary Mellon I chairman of the American debt funding commission which alone has the power to decide hether the plan will be acceptable to this country Most officials placed credence in tie report that rance would seek a 90 vear period for liquidating its obliga tion and that an amortization rate of i of 1 per cent would be proposed as the method of cutting down the1aM in nnnual instalments It was calculated float on the basis of the interest rates carried by previously arranged funding settlements the of 1 per cent amortization rate would wipe out the debt in about 80 years Possibly from knowledge imparted to Secretary Mellon by Embassador Jusserand in their previous conversa tions officials accepted reports that rance would ask a 10 year delay in payments as logical It was explained that the treasury computation of 80 years for paying the debt at per cent each year would coincide with tire 90 year proposal reported since the 90 years was supposed to include the 10 year period when no payments were contemplated No Complete Moratorium Reports that rance may be asking for remission of the interest charges over the 10 year period and thus make of it a moratorium in fact were dis counted Most officials conversant with conditions believed that the rench were too well acquainted with the American attitude toward cancel lation of the debt in whole or in part to propose such an arrangement and these officials declared that any plan contemplating remission of any of the obligations was defeated In Congress in advance of its receipt at the cap itol I The debt commission probably will be called together to talk over the proposal as soon as it is received and turned over to the treasury by Secretary Hughes The consensus of opinion appeared to be however that the commission can do little more than talk about the offer at this time Members ot the commission necessa rily have to be guided it was said by evidence of the attitude in Con gress and it was declared that until such evidence is developed the com mission will be unable to proceed far in considering any proposal that goes far afield from the basis established in the settlement with Great Britain rench Offer Tentative (By the Associated Press Paris Jan 2 Minister of inance Clementel has taken the first steps toward negotiations for the funding of the rench debt to the United States according to information given out today by the foreign office It was made plain however that Clemen action was purely unofficial tend ing rather to an exchange of views between his department and the American treasury department than between the two governments The finance
