To Care for Maimed,
A. L. Smith Declares
150 Men Still Unfit to
Work Have Applied to Re
employment Bureau for
Joi>*. He Says in Statement
Charges that the government is not
taking care of the men who were
maimed and gassed in its service were
made yesterday by Alfred L. Smith,
executive secretary fit" the Re?mploy
ment Committee for Soldiers, Sailors
Unable to obtain the compensation
that has been promised them, many
men who are still unfit for work have
applied to the bureau for jobs. At
present there ?ire about 150 men who
a, r ;njured while with the colors, and
who have not yet recovered, waiting
for job-; at the Re?mployment bureau.
V many again have been given some?
thing to do.
"The Re?mployment bureau,'' Mr,
Smith said yesterday, "does not like
to state publicly that the government
has not taken care of the men who
wore gassed, shell-shocked or wounded
while over there. But unies? the stories
told by the men, two-thirds of whom
claim they have not received the re?
lief supposed to have been given dis?
abled men, are incorrect, the govern?
ment is not taking prompt and effec?
tive means of caring for the men who
are responsible for the fact that the
Stars and Stripes are waving over
"In the meantime, the number of dis?
abled veterans who are unable to get
employment is increasing so rapidly
thai we are forced to appeal to the em?
ployers of New York City to help these
men. About one-third of the disabled
men out of work are married."
So frequent have the applications of
maimed and invalided men for work
become, that the Re?mployment com
mittee has established a Division for
Disabled Heroes, which Is concerned
entirely with trying to place these
pitiful reminders of the cost of vic?
Many of these men. Mr. Smith says,
say that they have not received any
compensation in months. Some have
been vainly seeking jobs for month?.

How Crisis Huh Developed
"(f) Whether the su^ar equaliza?
tion board should be continued within
is present capacity.-'
Senator New in his statement said in
"The sugar eq-'a'izntion board,
authorized by the President, bought
the entire Cuban crop of raw sugar for
1919 and made contracts with the re
tiner- to sell them their entire allot?
ment with the understanding that the
refined sugars should be sold to the
wholesale trade at 9 cents less 2 per
cent, F. O, B. refiners." The sugar
equalizatioti board also controlled the
best beet crop of 1918, but had no con?
trol over the 1919 crop of beet sugar
in this country.
"In October, 1918. the sugar oqnali
zation board alloted to the British
royal commission, who are the author?
ized buyers for England, France and
Italy, one-third of the raw sugar of
Cuba, which at that, time was decided
to be a fair distribution for ourselves
and our Allies. Owinp to the heavy
demand in this country a sugar short
ape developed in June this year and
all export orders were stopped on
July 1, except the. British royal com
mi -sion's share of the Cuban crop.

Board Warned President
"Early in August the sugar equali?
zation board called the attention of the
President to the critical situation con?
fronting the consumer of sugar and ad?
vised at that time that the hoard
control be extended to cover the beet
sugar crop of 1919 and the C'iban cane
crop of 1920 in order to provide an
aquitable distribution and price con?
trol and prevent speculation in sugars,
which naturally prevail on a short
"On September 1 the equalization
board could have made contracts with
the beet su;*ar refiners to sell t'-eir

with the Cuban planters on the same .

stock of raw sug-*r will be exhausted
in four weeks and the refiners will be I

b?r, resultinp in a serious shortage and '
sugar famine for the entire eastern
half of the country.
Foreigners Make Contracts
"Meantime foreign buyers have con- i
trac ted for 25 per cent of the i'uban j
crop for 1920 and our refiners in this i
country have not contracted for a sin- |
gle pound, awaiting the President's de
cisi?n as to p. final control. Unless !
immediate action is taken foreign buy- ?
ers will buy f>0 per cent of the Cuban*
crop, which will result in a sugar !
lamine and extreme shortage in this '
country all cf next year, causing hi;,-,!
prices and speculation.
"The failure of the President to act ;
on the board's suggestions has already |
resulted in an advance of 1'-2 cents
above the price offered the equaliza
tion board of September 1, and without i
control the refiners will not m:ikc con- !
tracts for future delivery, which will !

probably 20 cents to the consumer.
"If it is true that the equalization i
board has severa', times asked the
President to give attention to this sub- ,
ject the country otipht to know it, and '
if it is a misstatement of the fact the '
President ought to have an opportunity
to say so to the country. At all events.
I think we realize that the subject is
most important and the country ou,rht I
to have the truth without delay."

To provide for that which is due those

of Carmen's Union
NEWARK, N. J., Sept. 27.?-John L.
O'Toole, assistant to President Thomas
N. McCarter, of the Public Service
Railway Company, issued a statement

as National Issue, With

Admits League Will Do
Utmost in 1920 Election
COLUMBUS, Ohio. Sept. 27. Drys of
the United States, as represented by
the Anti-Saloon League of America, de
clared to-day that they will do their
utmost to prevent Buckeye wets from
gaining a point through the carrying of
any of the referendums to be voted on
at the November election in this state.
The league asserts that, no matter
how the election gi"'w, the wet.; will
have gained no advantage save that of
a moral victory. They joint out that
the national constitutional amendment,
backed up by the prohibition enforce?
ment act, will be operative January 10
for the entire country, and that under
the law beverage liquors will be limit
ed to those containing nol more than
one-half of I per cent of ulcohol, and
that, therefor,', even if the wets carry
the referendum establishing 2.7-r> per
cent, liquor as lern! it will have no
effect except "11 I tie minds of future
Federal legislators, who may at any
tit?' raise the limit of alcohol pern is
sible m a beverage as high as theii
wisdom or nrcjudice dictates.
Credit Wets With Three States
Ohm dry.-' say they do not believe
the wet, ie,n carry the referendum on
legislative approval of tl" Federal
amendment, or. if carried, thai it will
be held legal. In any event, they say
that it will take ten states to ?et the
amendment aside. They concede the
wets ?i-.ve ;i chance in three states
Ohio. Missouri and Californ a. In Ohio
dry majority estimates are placed at
from 50,000 to L00,000.
But the dry- will pul up a hard fight
against oven a 'notai advantage for
the* wet?. Prohibition is in the Con?
stitution, but prohibition mil > be made
ineffective, they say. If. they assert.
Ohio wets should be victorious at any
point in this state, where the Anti
Saloon League was founded and where
it has its national headquarters, the
possibilities of law enforcement would
be much less.

^Jm&?? things, the Franklin Simon Coat Shops (Individual

L^-v^l a number of different coats, capes, or wraps.
"To cut the cote according to the cloth" was the frugal phrase
of the 16th Century. Bin the frugality ofthat period with its
tight fitting and unattractive "?takes," is not comparable with
the luxury expressed in the wraps of today. Truly, in the
matter of wraps, Fashion has been a "turn coat," and her every
turn has enhanced their beauty and increased their charm.
The day has passed when one equivocal wrap, suited to many
occasions and special to none, answers the demands of the wo?
man of fashion. Just as every occasion calls for sn individual
frock, so every occasion calls for an individual wrap and the
INDIVIDUAL SHOPS ANSWER THIS CALL-WITH
THE INDIVIDUAL WRAP FOR THE INDIVIDUAL
, OCCASION AND THE INDIVIDUAL WOMAN
In fact, the quest for the different wrap ends here. In as?
sembling this collection, the trail led through the World's
marts for fabrics from the looms of the master weavers,
for colorings from the artist dyers, for rare pelts from the
expert trappers, to the Orient for artful embroideries, and then
to Paris and London for exclusive styles. So, whether it is a
top coat of English tailoring and Irish tweed, an afternoo'n wrap
of Spanish origin, or an evening cape which speaks French with
a Paris accent, it is here, and ready for immediate selection.
