City officials are expected to ma“ke a, belated start, within the next week or ten days, on compilation of the civil city budget for 1933. Meetings of city councilmen and other officials to study budget re quests has been delayed, awaiting outcome of ,the forty-day special session of the legislature, which will end Aug. 16. Various department, heads, it is understood, have been advised to submit budgets on the basis of their needs and without salary cuts, in or der that proportionate cuts may be made by the budget committee. While it is certain that serious re duction must be effected in the budget, it is impossible to forecast thq nature or amount of these re ductions, said Mayor Reginald H. Sullivan. The bill passed by the house of representatives Monday, providing a sliding scale of salary cuts, with provisions for a 10 per cent slash'in the total salary budget, would mean a $320,000 drop in the city budget for salaries alone, equal to about 4’v cents in the levy. Os this amount, more than half would be sustained by police nad fire departments, with a total pay roll of approximately $2,450,000. In addition, the city budget mak ers must take into consideration the $82,000,000 Center township realty valuation cut, announced several weeks ago.

Indiana taxpayers will have to pay for safeguarding their own money under provisions of a bill passed today by 35-to-l vote by the house of representatives.

THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES WOMEN PLEAD FOR CHANGE TO FIGHT BOLIVIANS War of Amazons Looms in Between South Ameri can Rivals. By 1 n 'led Press ASUNCION. Paraguay, Aug. 3. Paraguay mobilized today for war against Bolivia, with women plead ing for a chance to fight in the ranks. President Jose P. Guggiari signed a mobilization decree calling for army reserves of men between th? ages of 22 and 29 and officers be tween 20 and 50, after issuing a manifesto declaring that “the en tire nation must rise to arms.” The manifesto blamed Bolivia for provoking war. It said Paraguay’s attempts at peaceful settlement of the Gran Chaco dnspute had been fruitless. Several hundred women of the cit of Conception appealed to the government for a chance to “use arms for the fatherland.” They took an other not to use rouge, powder or perfume "until the Chaco is freed of Bolivian forces.” The presidential manifesto in dicated the Paraguayans counted the oppressive heat of the Chaco as aid to their soldiers, claiming that the Bolivians, used to higher alti tudes. could not stand it. A statement said 600 Bolivian in fantrymen deserted and flew across the Pilcomayo river, suffering from the heat and sickness caused by the low altitudes. Amazons’ War Looms By. I ailed Press LA PAZ, Bolivia. Aug. 3.—A mounting spirit of war brought de mands from women that they be permitted to serve in military ac tivity in defense of Bolivia today after the government indicated there was little hope for arbritation of the Gran Chaco frontier dis pute with Paraguay. In many districts of the interior, Bolivian women were offering themselves for active service in case of necessity. Frequently, the offers were accompanied by the declara tion : “The Bolivian woman always has proved herself in crisis of family or nation.” Work to Avoid War By United Press WASHINGTON.

BY RAY TUCKER Times Staff Writer WASHINGTON, Aug. 3. Presi dent Hoover's acceptance speech next week will set forth a prohibi tion program which is expected to rally Republican wets and drys be hind the Hoover-Curtis ticket. It was learned today that Hoover wjll interpret the party's prohibition plank, which he forced the conven j tion to adopt, as eliminating the worst evils of prohibition and re ! taining its best features. This is counted on to satisfy the Wadsworth-Butler group of wets in the northeast. In an appeal to the drys, he will denounce the Demo cratic repeal platform as lacking a constructive side and making possi ble the return of the saloon. The acceptance address virtually is completed, and probably will be sent to the printer today. Hoover has prepared it with great care, | writing and rewriting more often than he usually does. He has sub mitted parts of it to various ad- I visers, _ with Ogden L. Mills, secre ! tary of the treasury, as his chief critic. In general, it is understood, the President will raise the cry that his party is safe and sane, whereas his opponents have no program. The administration's foreign and domes tic policies will be praised as a far reaching effort to bring back eco nomic recovery without departure from “rugged Americanism.” Economic measures advanced at home and abroad, including the Ggrma.n moratorium, will be eulo gized as steps essential to prevent the depression from becoming a panic. Where the administration has de parted trom conservative paths, as in the case of the farm board and federal subsidy to banks, corpora tions, railroads, etc., it will be con tended that the gravity of condi tions required novel remedies. Hoover again will hold the World war and world conditions re sponsible for the depression.
