DR.INCHES READY FOR WAR CALL “How Soon Can You Report?” Asks War Department “ON NEXTTRAIN, IF NEEDED," IS REPLY Health Officer, In the Meantime, Fights Fever Plague Dr J W Inrhea. lw»troii health of fleer, Saturday raomln* received this message from ine war depart ment In Washington 'Hoe soon can you report for duty T* Dr. Inches i* on the Medical Re servo corps of »h* Unltart tUate* army. Without a raoment'a hoolta tlon he flashed back bta answer: “On the nev» train. If neceoaary.” The health officer said that when he joined the Medical Reaervf corps It was with the Idea that he would respond to a call when It came- as beeomet. a physician, whether U was In the middle of the night or while at dinner. “1 should not like to quit the war fare we are having here with scarlet fever,*' said the doctor, "bui I should have to do It. It would be leans ferrtng myself from one battle to another I hope, however, that I shall not be railed to anew fight until we have triumphed over the enemy that now besets Detroit." Saturday morning reports indicat ed that there are more than 1.100 U»s» of scarlet fever in the r|ty The disease is growing dally, despite the hard work of the department to conquer It One reason for this Is that tba fever this year neems to have variations, The typical svmp toms are not alwayn In evidence and many persons and even physicians are deceived The health oflleet has laeued cards giving the typical symp toms They appear In this order fever, vomiting and rash on throat and chest. Hpweter, In the present epidemic the fever does not always manifest itself in that way. Some times the rash appears first on some other part of the body. If the typical symptoms aero Infallible, Dr Inches says, the fight against the disease would be wan much more easily. Frequently cases of fever are found In schools where It has run Its course and th*» patient didn't know he had It. This kind of a case Is quite as active a carrier as would be one where the patient was confined to bed Dr Inches urge* parent* to notify the board of health at once when a child be comes ill with any symptom that might even Hpp«*nach scarlet fever.

DETROIT TIMES Let the investments of these 500 thrifty men and women help make your savings grow Some of Detroit’s shrewdest and thriftiest men and women are combining their re sources to invest in downtown business properties. „ By banding together they will be able to make more money than they could separately and individually. 1 For the man with SIOO is fortunate to receive more than 6% return on his money; hairing exceptional returns, the possessor of SI,OOO will average but little more. But the man who has $50,000 or $500,000 is offered opportunities for returns out of reach of the small capitalist who cannot finance the large transactions with their pro portionately greater percentages of profit. Large sums of money bring greater returns on each dollar than do small sums. So the man who has not a great deal of ready cash to invest is absolutely prevented from receiving the big profits possible to the large capitalist—except under one condition. Do Not Expect Immediate Profits TV formation of the Free Hundred In ventors of Detroit was suggested by the success of a real estate association m Boston, termed officially "The Fifty As sociate*," hut properly known aa ‘The Fifty Millionaires * These fifty men paid SIOO a share into a common fund for investment in business property Today their stock is worth $3,800 a share. t Successful Everywhere The tame plan has been operated success fully for rears by the Fifty Associates com pany of Toledo, the Hundred Associates company of Chicago, and similar organtza horn in Cleveland, Columbus and many other cities -every one of which has brought its stockholders satisfactory re turns If co-operative instalment succeeded so well in Boston, in Toledo. Cleveland, Co lumbus, Chicago and in many other cities, surely its .•oaaibilities at the very least would be equally great tn Detroit Already Qpiraring 1 In menv roosting* the ptar of operation has been studied and threshed over by the founder* of the Five Hundred Investors of Detroit. The safe, sound coarse of action decided npon follows vary closely th* ideas which haveproved to successful in Boston, Toledo, Cleveland and elaewhere. The Five Hundred Inventors Company ha* hern i n rypncaied and ia now oper ating It i? already a going concern The capi'aliesrion wfll he increased to $?40,00n immediately. A large part of this has ab'-ady been aubecribed Only S6O Down The par ' alue of the stock is SDH) a •hare, and subscriptions are taken in units of block of six shares each. The amount of Slock which any one iub scriber may lake in any one year is limited to eight blocks or 48 shares The Five Hundred Investors Company Care of H. A. Jones Real Estate Company 70 Washington BivcL. Cherry 5060 2nd Floor, Palmar Bldg. A subscriber may reserve six, twelve, eighteen, twenty-four, thirty, thirty-six, for ty-two or forty-eight shares. Stock may be paid for in full at the time es making subscription, or on a time basis, requiring the down payment of SSO and the payment each month of $12.50 for each block of six shares of stock. No interest is charged on deferred payments. For instance, the subscriber for six shares pays SSO and receives a receipt for that amount of money, and for each monthly in stallment of $12.50. Cadi or Tune When his receipts amount to SIOO. he may surrender them and receive in return one paid-up share of stock. Dividends—either cash or stock—will be based on the money paid in by each stock holder and the time it has been in the hands of the company—just as interest is com puted and paid by savings banks. A peiudty of ten per cent, $1.25 per sl2 50 payment, is charged if payments are not made hy the teuui of each month. This compulsory savings feature is one of the most valuable provisions of the plan Stockholders Retain Powers All important transactions, including the purchase, sale, mortgage or lease for a period of more than five years of any of the corporation’s holdings are subject to the approval of three fourths of the stock holders. It was the plan of the incorporators to retain in the hands of the stockholders every possible power—to a much greater extent than is usual in corporation affairs where most of the powers are delegated to the board of directors and the executive officer*. We always retain the right to decline any subscription for stock, so that we can pror tect ourselves against undesirable stock holders and against those who mav not be able to keep up their payments. This is for the protection of every stockholder. He can do just what many people ot aver age income* we doing —combine his resources with many others like him. Then the avail able capital totals enough to enter the field of big investments requiring large sums of money to finance them. And because the soundest and most stable of all investments —as well as the most profitable—is central business property, these people decided to confine their activities to this one field. You know—everybody kfiows —how down town real estate has doubled and trebled in value every few years—of the immense for tunes made in central property in Detroit. m If you combine with these 500 men and women, this immensely profitable field of investment is open to you and to them. Your money will help them make larger profits and their money will make more money for you. We caution every subscriber that he must not expect dividends until the company has fully developed all its properties, ana per haps not then, if the stockholders see hr to use the money for further purchases or development. This is not a get-rich quick scheme. Profits from Increases • Our primary purpose is to obtain the profits arising from increased values of property, and we want everyone to under stand that, while we consider such an in crease to be certain and large, it will not come in a moment. We w ill accept stockholders only on this understanding. This announcement is published in order to obtain immediately enough subscribers to make up the required number of stock holders. Many Subscribers Most of those who have already sub scribed are taking advantage of the de ferred payment or "time'* plan— a number are paying up in cash because they appre ciate the possibilities for profits greater *han they are now receiving elsewhere. Many have taken six or twelve shares— some have subscribed to more A large number of subscriptions have l*een received from out-of-town. No subscriptions beyond f? 40,000 will ha accepted and the right is reserved to reduca or reject am suiscnptiooa in order to meet that amount. Interesting Information We shal fr pleased to give anyone inter* ested full details of tire plan or send our booklet giving all particulars. Subscriptions are now being taken at ths offices of the company. An appointment for Sunday or any evening may be ae ranged by telephone or letter. Call at our offices, examine every feat ure carefully, and look over the reports showing w'hat has been accomplished with exactly the same plan elsewhere. „ PAGE 3
