ROBERT J. HALLE AND HIS FIGHT
FOR PERSONAL LIBERTY.
In nil America there Is no man who
has made a harder or better light for
tho cnuso of personal llborty thnn
Robert J. Hallo in his bright and In
Iluentlal newspaper tho Champion of
Fair Play. Ills fight against prohibi
tion and sumptuary Intolerance has
been consistent, nblo and brave. At
tho present time it looks ns If the
cause were lost.
But tho poets lines,
"Freedom's battle onco begun
Though often lost Is over won."
may Inspire him with now hope.
Tho following cablegram to tho
Chicago Dally News from Ito manag
ing editor, Charles 11. Dennis, pub
lished on Jnnunry 28, Is significant
to say tho least:
Paris, Franco, Jan. 28. Peoplo In
America nro saying that whon tho
men of tho nation's overseas army ro
turn to their homes and tho activities
of civil llfo thoy will provo determining
factors In tho grent affairs of govern
ment and social progress. SInco this
opinion Is commonly hold It should In
terest those at homo to know that a
considerable fooling of resentment
provnlls In their army In Europe, bo
cnuso tho question of national prohibi
tion was raised and decided by consti
tutional amendment during tho nb
senso of 2,000,000 fighting Americans.
Tho feeling Is duo primarily not to
tho decision Itself, but to tho fact that
It was reached nftor tho men into
whoso hands tho country's nffnlrs must
presently como, had been sent out of
tho country to fight for Its liberties.
Throughout tho army tho opinion Is
expressed that somo consideration for
tho vlows of tho absent would havo
boon entirely fitting.
I prosont this striking fact merely
as an Indication of tho general state
of mind of tho Amorlcan nrmy. Thero
Is a settled determination on Its part
to bo counted In tho ranks of citizen

REINBERG HITS BACK
President Peter Helnberg of the
forest preserve board presented his
answer to the proposal of tho malor
Ity of tho county board that tho con
troversy between them as to tho ma
jority's right to make new rules bo
submitted to three judges for it final
decision. President Helnberg has a
counter proposition for asking the
Chicago Bureau of Public Efficiency
to net as arbiter. In his formal pro
posal President Hclnborg says:
"Proper adjustment demands either
a tedious litigation through the courts
lasting for years or n rcforenco of tho
cntlro controversy' to nn Impartial
civic body for recommendation ns to
what Is necessary to most expeditious
ly adjust tho disputes In tho Interests
of tho tnxpnyors and tho district.
That tho second end may bo gained,
I recommend that tho Chicago bureau
of public efficiency bo requested to
mako n careful survoy or tho various
controversial problems with which tho
board Is now concerned and to make
Its recommendations for tho solution
thoreof which will bo most beneficial
to tho taxpayers and to tho district."

HOW ABOUT "LIBERTY FUEL?"

tho wnr department. According to the
fuel administration the mixture wns
found to contain about 03 per cent of
benzol. InnHiuuch ns the supply of
benzol Is limited the amount of Lib
erty fuel that could be produced would
be only nbout U per cent of the pres
ent output of gasoline. Moreover, the
fuel when tested left n gummy residue,
which would plug up catburetors, and
revealed many other drawbacks.
On the other hand, tho war deport
ment says that the fuel administration
must have tested one of the 28 "fake"
mixtures fixed up during the war to
fool German spies.
According to the war department,
the cost of manufacture Is -10 per cent
lower than that of making gasoline.
It Is described ns wentless, tasteless,
nnd without gasification scent. Its
products of combustion are cooler than gasoline. It Is noncorroslve. It does
not give out soot or carbon, and starts tho engine more rendlly thnn gasoline.
