ness and the amount ut such indebt
edness. Schedules of inquiry calling
for this information have been sent
to all of tho persons reported In your
city as owning homes subject, to
' mortgage, but unfortunately a largo
' number of the citizens have not re
plied to the official request. We 1m
' agine this indifference on their part

i necessary to depart from it. I be
s lievo that your citizens will give
