Court s No.- 1 tomorrow,
Tha Government's case is based, it Is

"Indian Summer" Coming
In November, Says Expert
The so-called "Indian summer'' hs
not yet arrived, and will not till the
middle or the latter part of next month,
according to Prof. Willis V. Moore,
chief of tho eWather Bureau, who s)s
that the present warm spell should not
be confused with the "squaw winter"
which appears Uler In the year.
Until there has been n real cold snap
and a fiury or two of snow, Pror,
Moore eays the real "Indian summer"
cannot appear. Tho warm wave which
swept Washington last week was not
unseasonable, and was predicted by the
Weather Bureau ten days ago.
