Work Would Solve Reclamation Problem Royal Gossip That Interests - ASHINGTON. -- Formation of a fact-finding commi sion to investfgate the whole system of gc-er- ment nmthods tn reclaiming arid and semI-qrid lauds by Irrigation has been announced hy Dr. tlubert Work, secre- tary of the interior. Invitations were sent to seven citizens of natlona! rep- utation and prominence to serve as members of the commissi,m and con- duct an intensive study of the p'ob- lem wlHch Is characterized as one of "'national concern." This s in furth- erance of a policy instituted last April Secretary Work, in outlining the reclamation situation, declared, "It is generally reported that relatively few of the original settlers on projects now remain on them as water users." He also cites the fact that "one hundred and thlrty-four millions of governmen3 money have been eapended for recla- mation, and but fourteen millions have been returned, while slx millions are due and unpaid." Those asked to serve on the com- mission are: Jullus Barnes, president United States Chamber of Commerce; Oscar E. Bradfute, president Amerl- can Farm Breau federation; James R. Garfield, ex-secretary of the late- riot; Elwood Mead, engineer and am thor of works on irrigation and recla- mation, Berkeley, Calif.; Former Coy. Thomas . Campbell of Arizona; For- mer Gov. David W. Davis of Ichho, now commissioner of reclamation, and Dr. John A. Widtsoe, formerly presi- dent of the state university and agri- cultural college of Utah. The letter of invitation sent for- ward by Secretary Work follows, ha part : "TL,e exte:ons for payment both construction and maintenance charges hare been asked which, if granted, would multiply deferred an- nal payments, it is feared, beyond the ultimate ability of the settler to p',', entailing probable loss of his home and to the government the loss of the investment. "Reclamation has done much toward the development of the West, but it now clearly requires to be adapted to existing conditions, so that Its future success may be ahieved and the poS- sibility of home ownership be assured to settlers. Government Essay ENEWAL of Its annual safety contests, in which $6,500 will be given away in prizes, is an- nounced by the Highway Edu- cation board. Training children in habits of higi)way safety is the princi- pal task of the 1923 safety campaign, but through the children it is hoped that the princiiles of traffic regulation and safety education will be impressed upon everybody. Tim third annual safety campaign takes the form of two contests, one among elementary school pupils and another among elementary school teachers. Approximately five hundred state and national prizes are to be given for the best essays and lessons written. The prizes offered are the gifts of the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce, which Is de- sirons ofreducing the number of acci- dents and fa(alities due to traffic mis- haps. In the two previous years ap- proximately 400,000 pupils and 50,000 teachers have participated each au- tumn. Contest in Schools Tile subject of the essays which children are invited to write Is "Highway Safety Habits I Should Learn." Essays, as last year, are not to exceed five hundred words Ill length. Those eligible are pupils of the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades, who are not more than four- teen years of age. The contest opened with the beginning of school and will close December 4, 19.3. Teachers are requested to submit safety lessons on the subject "Train- ing Children In Habits of Safety on the Highways." The Ihnit suggested is between 1,000 and ,D words. All elementary school teachers in the eighth and lower grades are digible to submit lessons. I the teachers' contest the first national award is $500 and a trip to Wastflngton with all expenses paid. The second Is $300, the third is $1,200. The first national prize for pupils Is a gold watch and a trip to Washing- ton with all expenses paid. Japanese Government T "WILL require five years to lay the foundations of the new cities of Tokyo and i"okohama, end from ten to fifteen years to complete their construction, according to reli- able estlnmtes compiled in this city. An approximation of the Japanese losses places the figure at $2,000,000,- 000. Thls area is one of the most densely populated in Japan. support- lug I5,000,000 people, more than one- fourth the entire Inhabitants of Japan. A touellng expression of gratitude for the sympathy and assistance of the United States in the Japanese disaster was communicated by Count Yama- mote. premier of Japan, on behalf of the Japanese people to the American governmenL The message was trans- mitted to the State department by Masnao Hanihara, imperial ambassa- dor here. It reads iu part: 'At a time when Japan was making her best endeavors to follow the letter and spirit of the Versailles treaty and the VVashington treaties, which we be* lleve have laid the foundatien of world peace and will greatly promote human welfare, the emptier was visited by a mot appalilng disaster, in which all the elements combined. "In this hour of deep grief and any iety, felt alike by the emperor and all his subjects, the President of th Thanks America United States Issued a proclamation urging the American people to come to the aid of the stricken people of Japan and designating the American Red Cross to administer the relief work. Then the commander of the American Asiatic fleet lost no thne in dispatching the ships under his com- mand to the scene of the disaster and offered the serveW of the entire fleet. "The report of these spontaneous and prompt measures: taken by the President, the government and the people of the United States. is creat- ing a profound impression in the grateful hearts of suffering Japan. "With these facts ia mind. I desire to express in the name of the Japa- nese government their most heartfelt thanks to the American government and at the same time to convey to the President and people of the United States the deep sense of gratitude of my sovereign and of the entire nation of Japan for this noble manifestation of a sincere and generous sympathy. I am happy in believing that this pre- cious gift of the American sympathy in the hour of greatest trial for the Japanese nation cannvt but serve the peace of tile world, in drawing still ctose the bond of friendship an trust between the two eoerntrie" , The Win(ls.rs of In the public Queen 3lary; tim beg pardon, I)rd vacation on his duke of York, with studying for Wales; busy with the care And now comes youngest son, just ling the Londoners to gossips have it that married.

The one dollar bill for Instance, will have Vashington's portrait; the five. Lincoln. and the ten. Jackson. Cleve- land's likeness will appear on the twenty-dollar bltls while for the fifties and one hundreds, the portraits of General Grant and Benjamin Frank. lin, respectively, have been elected. The backs of the new bills will be of the same general character as the present gold notes, consisting of the conventional scroll .ork panel with lathe work border and not pictures and thus the design of any one denoml. nation will become well known, wheth- er it be a United States note. silver cfrSficate or federal reserve note. The whole design will be uniform. and the difficulty or "raising" bills to higher denominations. Chief Moran of the secret service believes, will be greatly increased. Crime Bill Is Three Billions a HE national crime hill Is more than $3,000,000,000 s year, ac- cording to estimates t;y the [ cus- toms house, the police, eredU associations, and othet authorities, made public by the National Surety company of New York The estimates were prepared at the request of the Institute of Economics at Washington. The greatest single item Is stock frauds, the annual loss from which is estimated at $1,000,000,000 by Seymour L. Cromwell president of the New York Stock exchange. Fraudulent bank/'uptcles were estimated by sec- retary regoe of the National Asso- ciation of Credit Men to inflict the mnnual losses of $400,000,000 on the Investing and speculating 6ubile. According to these figures, every man. woman and child In the United States ls robbed or cheated out of about $80 a year; or. putting It another wala, enough crime Is committed In the United States to earn an InCome of  a head to.every American. There has never been a time in the blo og the Year when crime has been so prevalenL according to William B. Joyce of the National Surety company. He point- ed otlt that the $3.000,000,000 lost through crime was a larger sum by $500,000,000 thau the total ,)f the court. try's annual imports. The present year promises to lead all others. The following, according to Joyce. are the principal economic causes foe financial crimes : Widespread disrespect for property rights and law caused partly by the World war. Envy, resentment, and bitterness, caused partly by ostentation of the wealthy class. Many salaries too close to the starvation line. Carelessness of employers In not In. veatigating the past records of new employees, In not auditing the ac- counts of their business with wdffi- dent frequency and thoroughness, and not keeping their office funds in prop. erly constructed modern safes.

The lirst direct mes- sage from Yokohama came from him to the United States Navy depart- ment.; it reported the arrival of his flagship, the Huron, and gave infor- mation as to casualties. One of his first acts was to requisition supplies from Shanghai, ordering the first ob- tainable shipping board carrier to pro- ceed at once to Yokohama. Provisions nnd medical supplies were carried early to Yokohama by American navy de- stroyers and delivered to the Japanese Red Cross. The supplies ordered from Shanghai included : Nonperishable provislons--beanL flour, rice, tea, sugar, salt and water.
