port on unemployment was issued by
the market commission and Julius,
who is an expert on employing cheap
labor, was appointed by the mayor on
the commission which is expected to
find ways and means to put the pro
visions of the report into .operation.
No doubt when the good old summer

A For the woman prostitute: Sejf-
regation, sexuar instruction, medical
inspection, and, in Casfe of disease,
hospitalization. '
B For the man: Instructions asto
the use of alcohol in increasing' mt-
