CRINGE IN IMMIGRATION
QUOTA LAW DEPENDED
Prospects cf Getting Better Aliens in
This Country Outlined.
Washington, May 3.(Capita) New:
Service).---W. w. Husband, United
States Commissioner cf Immigration,
says that in sp.te of the fact that il
is conceded in Washington that the
Dillingham quota law of 1922 bus
been an unqualified success, amend
ments wil. probably be made in it.
One of the -probable changes would
raise tile quota of immigrants yearly
admitted to 5 per rent, computed not
on the census of 1900, hut -on that of
1890, admitt.ng not 155,090, as at
pres;nt, from south and east Europe,
bat only 50,000; but 400,t00 from the
countries of north and west Europe
instead of the present 200,039.
'•At any time,’ Mr. Husband said,
“business men and manufacturers
want more labor. I think they run
have it. only providing it comes from
countries whose citizens readily oe
ccme assim.lated here.”
The best class of immigrants has
come to America this year in its his
tory. The British quota is going m be
filled, the Swiss and Be gian quotas
are already used up. the Swedish wili
be in June, the French will perhaps
be about 75 per cent used, anil the
Dutch quota will b: filled with a new
emigration of farmers. In this con
nection attention is cubed t 6 234 Nor
wegians and Swedes who came over
in our ships last week. They showed
customs inspectors cash, notes, and
etters of credit, totaling about ♦ 1.090-
000. Some rods first-class, mime
second, and other steerage.
These Scandinavians went through
the immigration tests without diffi
culty, showing a high level of in
telligence The proposed changes in
the law wi l, it is said, increase the
number of this type of immigrant.

ADDRESS OF WELCOME
EY MRS. ROBERT R. COTTON
To The North Carolina Federation of
Women’) Clubs at Winston-Salem.
Winston-Salem. May 2 (By the As
sociated Press).—dull women have
learned to distinguish between good
nnd bad men. "and no doubt will ap
ply this wisdom in the use of their
citizenship, which will lie good for the
public welfare,” Mrs. Robert R. Col
ton. honorary president, declared in
response to an address of welcom:*
tonight ai the convention of tlie North
Carolina Federation of Women’s Clubs
"Despite the dire prophecies aliont
dub women, they have continued to
marry and rock the proverbial cradle,"
“he asserted. "And, yet by systema
tizing their households have gained
time to attend dull meetings."
In speaking of the twenty-first nnn
versary of the federation Mrs. Cotton
declared the organization "stands in
the limelight of success.” The feder
ation. she continued, has developed in
all possible directions.
"Growth is the law of life," she said,
"but material growth is in vain unless
spiritual growth lie added to itav
"While growing in numbiw? have
we grown in spiritual strength? Have
we growji in toleration of the weak
nesses of our co-workers? Have we
grown in breadth of vision and unity
of purpose? Ha ve we obeyed Hie ad
monition of tlie strong to bear the bur
dens of tlie wonk- .Are we brave
to meet new the acid test of citizen

even dreamed of in our early years?
"We have stood at all times for the
highest and best for our nation, for
our state and for tlie individual. We
are living in a very different world
from the one we knew when this fed
eration was formed, inventions, dis
coveries. mid human achievements in
scientific lines have made miracles al
most an every day occurrence. View
points have changed, and il is hard to
believe that women's clubs, now so
universally commended, were once
feared ns tlie forerunner of evil-but
it was so.
‘‘Now to lie more specific, what lias
the North Carolina Federation accom
"Its growth has been slow but
steady. It began with seven clubs
which soon increased to seventeen. !t
now lias 250 women’s dubs, six affili
ated organizations and 500 demonstra
tion clubs, which combined, make a
membership of between forty and fifty
thousand women--all working for tlie
benfit of Xorth Carolina.
“Thus has our sphere of influence
widened, bringing with it the respon
sibility of co-operation with this large
number of women. As we come iii
•much with them, let us take as. our
aim the unifying of North Caro-
Tina'women for mutual benefi t and up
lift, for individuals and for the state.
"All organizations nre born paupers.
Our federation was no exception.
For years we were liandiennped by tlie
lack of funds, but it taught ns eeon
uny and thrift, and our opportunities
for service were met with a brave
spirit and often personal sacrifice.
We continue to find more needs than
we can meet, nnd like Oliver Twist,
we continually cry for ‘more.’ meaning
money. And, somehow, it always

been told that the majority of libra

federation started the traveling li

finally gave all its traveling cases to
the library commission, which it had
been largely interested in having cre
“At the fifth annual meeting many
forward stops were taken. A gavel
made of wood from Mount Vernon was
presented to tlie federation by tlie
Charlotte Woman’s Club, The feder

bought and proudly worn. At that
time our interest in scholarship was
aroused, and we voted to assist in
raising a memorial scholarship at
Salem College, in honor of Airs. Stone
“At the next convention, the depart
ment of education presented many
scholarships from various colleges in
the state, which were to he used at
the discretion of the federation. This
aroused the enthusiasm of the depart
ment of education, which, on its own
initiative, kept, a girl at the Greens
boro Normal for four years, the money
being raised by the commissioner of
the department. When that money
was returned to the federation treas

THE DUTY IMPOSED ON ’ .
j RELIEF SUPPLIES REPEALED
Turks Taive It Off on Insistence of the
U. S. Slate Department. ,
■ Raleigh, May 3.—Word lias just
come from Now York to Col. George
H. Bellamy, state chairman of the!
Near East Relief, that tlie outrageous
I “duty" imposed on relief supplies sent
, to tlie interior of Turkey lias been re
| pealed by tin* Turkish nationalist gov
ernment at the insistence of tlie Am'
erican State Department.
Tills duty would have cost the Near
East R. lief $15,000 a day and great
ly decreased the number of Christian
lives which are being saved in this
unfortunate part of the world. Full
details will he given the press later in

the relief of Christians.
Vigorous protest was made to the
American State Department by Char
les V. Vickery, of Now York, general
secretary of tlie Near East Relief. Mr.
Vickery contended that such an out- 1
rageous duty would not only greatly
decrease the number of refugees that
