MONDAY, APRIL 18, 1921. BETTER POSTAL SERVICE. Postmaster General Hays and postmasters from seven of the largest cities of the United States compared notes in Washington and made suggestions for the improvement of the postal service. Mr. Hays assured the postmasters that his department would do all it could to bring about changes for betterment.

Mr. Hays suggested organization of a "red as a super-special delivery, guarantee.n special dispatch mail from the time it was placed in the postoff re until delivered to its destination. Such delivery would ap.ly to all first class matter, and if it is made operative will be greatly welcomed. The handicap of a lack of help experienced during the war, appears to be disappearing, and the prompt handling of mail matter is more nearly realized than it has been for a number of years. The slackness in industry should have the effect of causing many trained mail workers to return to the postal service.

A new branch of he postoffice department may be organized for the purpose of taking over 1l. delivery system of large mercantile establishments, experiments made in a number of cities having apparently demonstrated the feasibility of the plan. The system would probably be less expensive than the delivery maintained by the large stores, and it would add to the revenues of the government. The public will welcome any practical changes which Mr. Hays may make for, the improvement of the postal service.

The prompt delivery of mail has much to do with the suecessful management of business of all kinds, and it also has a good effect in maintaining the morale of the people, to whom the government is represented intimately in the postal service. Ent Da to or FAMINE IN AMERICA. With surprise and some shock many comfortable citizens learn that fellow Americans in the west are perishing of hunger that in America children at offering from malnutrition; that education is failing and warn.th and clothing are lacking out' cold northwestern border. Yet in Western North Dakota and in Eastern Montana, to reports from. Red Cross workers, famine has been breaking down those defenses of civilization that Americans pinneers have raised against the desert.

For four rainless, cropless years the farmers of that region, mostly of Polish, Finnish, Russian and Scandinavian, descent, struggled with ill success to maintain their families. For many reasons the people of this country cannot afford to allow this condition to continue in the Dakota bad lands or elsewhere. The first is the obvious humane reason of preserving life. Another is the need of guarding the progress that has been made in developing the desert regions of the country, Territory once opened must be maintained, as business is maintained over its depressions, by credit, if the permanence of American progress is to be assured. Already the American Red Cross has spent $300,000 in the relief of suffering in the district.

Relief measures are appropriate enough so far as they go, but constructive measures that will prevent such need or relief should be taken. About the most unprofitable job is to try to convince a man that he is wrong when he does not want to he convinced.

FOUR BIG STEPS TOWARD REVISION George Wharton Pepper Makes Clear Exposition of Way to Achieve New Constitution. Philadelphia, The passage on first reading of the Sproul-Crow bill for the calling of a constitutional convention has aroused great interest here. The prospect of the early passage of the bill ti through the Legislature has brought about great activity among the sponsors of the movement, looking toward a general dissemination of information about the constitution throughout the state.

"As the matter stands now," It was stated yesterday by George Wharton Pepper, "the question is: shall the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania be given an opportunity to determine at the polls whether or not a. conyention shall be called to frame a new constitution? That is the first question, a question for the Legislature. If the Legislature answers that question in the affirmative, the second question is for the people, A question which they will settle at the polls next September, namely, shall we or shall we not have the Constitutional Convention? "If the people, next September," continued Mr. Pepper, "vote affirmatively upon that question, the next question will be decided by the Constitutional Convention summoned in accordance with their will, namely, what shall be the provisions of the new constitution which we shall commend to the people for their acceptance? And when the Constitutional Convention, called in response to the will of the people, has formulated a document which it esteems worthy to be the fundamental law of the state. that document will be submitted.

to the people and the fourth and last question will be the one which the people themselves will then decide, whether or not to accept the work of their Constitutional Convention. Now, when the questions are. put in that order and when you think of the time which must elapse between the decisions of those successive questions, I think it will be seen that. there is not much danger cf our being stampeded into anything that is revolutionary. We are cot going to male up our minds in a hurry to do anything that is precipitate or Referring to certain objections that this is a time of unrest and therefore not a proper time to formulate a new constitution, Mr.

Pepper said for one, am of the belief that relative to the days that lie ahead of us, these are days of peace and quiet. I think it is a short-sighted man who fails to perceive that this is so, and as regard the revision of our constitution as an inevitable necessity, as something that is coming soone: or later, an operation which must be performed, I believe this is the time ordained of God for the people of this Commonwealth to make their good resolutions for the future and that the constitution is going to be revised now." Asked as. to the probable Anal action of the Legislature, Mr. Pepper replied: There is only one way in which we can neutralize the opposition and that is by presenting a united front in our advocacy of a Constitutional Convention. If we unite in calling upon the Legislature to give the people a chance to vote aye nay, we can put a legislator in such a position that he will think twice before he will look his constituents in the eye and say, "when you had an opportunity to record your will I voted 'no' on that proposition and witheld the chance from A VITALLY IMPORTANT MATTER The question of constitutional revision is on3 which comes home to every citizen of the State and should command universal interest.

The problem of municipal government, one of the greatest the State has to deal with, is comparatively new and demands special treatment which is impossible under our present constitution. Municipalities must have the various lines of public service. To secure these requires powers of finance, control and management which do not exist. Our present law is too rigid and does not give a sufficient degree of local control. While the State should not relinquish her power over municipalities, nevertheless provision should be made for more liberal selfgovernment which can be effected only through a change in our constitutional provisions on the subject.

Such problems as these were nonexistent in 1874. The present constitution therefore could not in the nature of things mako provision for their proper control. It is not surprising, then, that the constitutional commission appointed by the Governor has recommended, after a careful and painstaking study of our present constitution, more than one hundred and thirty changes. In submitting the sult of its labors for consideration by the citizens of the commonwealth attention should be focused on the fact that it was the unanimous opinion of the commission that there should be constitutional convention. REFUSES TO GIVE Continued from page 1.

lish at the same time the further fact that he representations of President Wilson and Mr. Lansing were accepted by the council and the lat. ter decided to exclude Yap from the mandatory territories assigned to Japan." Referring to the view of the American note that if Yap had been included in the Suprem Council's decision would have been in more specific language, the Japanese reply, which is the fourth note, states that "it is more in accordance with sound principles of interpretation to say that the fact should have been set down with especial clearness if clusion were meant, as an exception always requires to be stated deflate. ly." The Japanese note then makes this important point: "Nor is the imperial government alone and unsupported in their interpretation of the decision, for they are in receipt of authentic information that the governments of Great Britain and France being of the same opinion as the Japanese government on the matter made statements to that effect in their replics to the American note in November last. "To sum up," the note continues, "since a matter of such a grave nature as the establishment of man datory territories only what appears on the face of.

the derisions should be accepted as authoritative, the im. perial government cannot agree ir. giving an extraordinary and unusual interpretation to the decision on a vague ground that certain thoughts and intentions not expressed in the text thereof existed in the mind of the delegate of one power only." The Japanese note says that the American propsal that even should Yap be given under: a Japanese man datory the island shoul1 be open 10 all nations as a cable station, is a question which "seems to be one which should be freely settled by the nation which has charge of the place, namely, Japan." Five Notes Given Out. WASHINGTON, April, firm determniation not to surrender the Island of Yap is stated emphatically in a series of five notes between the United States and Japan made public today by the State Department. The correspondence covering a perfod of nearly six months, lays bare for the first time the whole secret negotiations over the Island of Yap, which has created one of the most serious international issues of the day.

The correspondence today reveals for the first time that not only has Japan defied the American protest against the mandate over Yap, but that it also rejected summarily a proposal by the United States that "ev. en if Yap should 1 be assigned under mandate to Japan all other powers should have free and unhampered ac(cess for the landing and operation of cables. The last Japanese note to the United States in the correspondence is dated last February 26, and it has what is regarded as an almost sarcastic tone. The last note of the series, the Hughes mandate note handed to the Japanese foreign office on April 5 is similar to that to Great Britain which was made public, except for the opening paragraph. This para.

graph follows: Last U. S. Note "The government of the United States finds itself unable to agree with the contention of the Japanese government that in order to maintain the position of the governmet of the United States with respect to the Island of Yap, it is necessary for this government 'to prove not merely the fact that the particular line of views was stated at the meetings' of Supreme Council (referring to the reservations made President Wilson at the peace conference against the award of Yap to but alSO that the Supreme Council decided in favor of those views. If it meant that United States could be bound without its consent by the action of the Supreme Council, the con. tention is deemed by this government to be inadmissible, and on the other hand the United States has nev er assented to the mandate ing to embrace the Island of purportThe American notes in the batch of correspondence made public today are understood to have been sent not only to Japan, but all the other principal Allied powers.

First Note From Colby. The first, note was one from Secre. tary of State Colby dated November 9, in which it was pointed out that the question of the disposition of Yap by the Supreme Council had come up in the communications conference here. Colby said was the under standing of this government that Yap was not included in the award of May 7, 1910, by the Supreme Council of the former German islands north of the equator to Japan, and that the question of Yap was reserved until a future date SO that an agreement could be reached for its internationization as a cable station. The Japanese reply, dated Novem-ber 19, stated that "the Japanese gov.

ernment would not be able to consent to any proposition which, reversing the decision of the Supreme Council, would exclude the Island of MORAL: IT ISN'T THE PUBLIC THAT HAS QUIT SPENDING SO MUCH AS IT IS BUSINESS THAT HAS QUIT SELLING.

The next note is a long account of the American position sent by acting Secretary of State Norman H. Davis on December 6. This said: "There would appear to be no differ. ence of opinion with regard to the reservations made by President Wilson and Mr.

Lansing with respect to the Island of Yap during various discussions of the Supreme Council and the Council of Foreign Ministers at the Peace Conference." The note cites four separate dates, April 21, 1919; April 30, 1919; May 1 and May 6-on which President Wilson and Secretary Lansing served botice of the reservation that Yap should not be included in the Pacific islands to be awarded Japan as a. mandatory.
