w)R ASSEMBLY TO FAIL r Y- -i. *1 Franchise League May Split Own Organization Over One-Day Scheme. COMPROMISE PROPOSED Gov. Goodrich’s proposal to call a special session of the legislature when the women of Indiana assure him that the legislators will act on nothing except the ratification of the woman’s suffrage amendment will not result in an immediate' meeting of the general assembly. The Woman’s Franchise league, which Mrs. Helen Benbrldge of Terre Haute said would obtain tie pledge of the leg- r Mature to comply’ With the Goodrich' made conditions, will not be.able to ob tain such a pledge,ajxd may split, its own organization In the attempt. The “conditiouial; session" which Good rich proposed will- fail of materialization for two reasons t 1. .The women of Indiana will not -be a unit in any attempt to pledge the legislators to the Goodrich plan. 2. The legislators of Indiana will hot, unanimously, be bound by any gag rule which" Goodrich and his friends may propose or endeavor to promulgate. Goodrich’s proposal, made after confer ence with Will Hays and other republican organization leaders, is beginning to re? act. It did not "get across,\’.'.£6r the rea son that it was* too- palpably ft ,"frgme? up" to protect Goodrich from the things he most fears im?lndian. VISIT AND REPLY WERE “FRAMED.” f Shortly after the proposal was made to the committee of four women who vis ited the governor's office it became known that the visit of* the- women and .the an- 1 nouncement fit thep- .•governor had been - "framed" some tinie before it took place. The women word ‘Wrought to the gov ernor’s office from, the’ headquarters ■ of. the state committee. al the Severln hotel; When they arrived- they were handed the letter which Gov. addressed.jtop Mrs. Benbridge, aUdvwhich obviously.so net prepared while she was on,-her . way from the hotel to ,his office..*-.,.,- , ■ It was noticeable that the> committee of women who received it was packed for • that _,Mr.s v .

Miss Betsy • Edwards of Sbelhyville has a connection I w|th the national organization of the U republican party which ib presided over fcby Will Hays. Mrs. Charles A. Butler is ■t he paid representative of the repub- state committee' in Indiana! Mrs. John F. Barnhill, a vjce president, of the Franchise league, has always been , friendly to the‘ ,, Goddflch orgaYiizhtlob in the state and is nti enthusiastic Wdrker for suffrage above ’ everything else. DEMOCRATIC WOMEN' NOT ON SCENE. . .... ’"Noticeable for their nhsence from the. gathering at the governor’s office, where these four wtqnen attempted io 4 pledge the women of the stiite to the governor's program, were the other members oMhe* league's exequtjve committee, Mrs. Alice Foster McCyiloclj of Ft. Wayne, Mrs. Richard Edwards of Peru, MriA Iff ’ A"." Gould of Peril; dhd Miss Jtilia Lafiffers of Indianapolis;’ -r ■< • The announcement by Mrs. Benbridge,. immediately after the governor had pre?t sented his proposal to her, that the Franchise leaeritfe would attempt to pledge" the legislature to bis program was an" announcement, on behalf of the league made by Mrs. Benbridge without the. sanction or knowledge of the .executive committee of the league and wholly on her own authority. *7 *. * It has 4 no4f V become known ‘ tfigt Airs.

Business Bureau to Elect Officers S* 1 Members of anew board of directors will bq elected Monday noon at the aD-. nual business meeting and luncheon of the Better Business bureau. Kenneth Barnard, manager of the Toledo (0.) bureau will speak. “The Better Business bureau is en deavoring to make- Indianapolis a safe place to do business," says the an nouncement of the meeting. "Safe for the public; safe for the reputable busi ness for the crooked. We seek to create maximum public confidence in your business 'through our efforts to have all Indianapolis, business houses worthy of confidence.” is no possible way the assembly can be pledged to decline to receive other busi t ness and there are members of it who | will not stultify themselves to that ex | tent. I These members will not pledge them selves to refrain from the introduction of other matters than suffrage into the session and while they may not be nu merous enough to accomplish the trans actions of other, any business, they will be numerous enough to iatroduce at any special Session some resolutions that "will -tend : to'show the people of Indiana why Goodrich 4s so anxious to have the as sembly' bound hand and foot before it meets. •-' Goodrich is not likely to feel that the assurances of those few women who will attempt to assure him of the legislature’s commitment to his program are suffi cient. Therefore, he Is not likely to call a special session of the legislature at present. DOUBLE CADE NOW SUGGESTED. It has been suggested as a compromise over a ‘situation that seems to be an Impasse that Goodrich issue, now, two calls for the general assembly, one for immediate convention and the other for convention several months In the future. Advocates of this .plan say that there can be no assurance that Goodrich would reconvene the legislature if the suffrage problem were out 'of the way and the only method by which the public could be insured of an opportunity to get con sideration of public affairs would be through .the issuance of an irrevokable call before Suffrage is acted on. These Mftsens candidly assert that the work of Gov.' Gbodrich is neve rto be relied On and they will take no-chances of his 'abtlßty to find a way to avoid a second I and’late session of the assembly. Among the members of the American ' YeglotU thete is considerable discussion jo holv Goodrich expects to fulfill his promise to them of an appropriation for 1 their memorial. He has promised them that when the special session is con- ! vened he will see that money is provided for their headquarters. In his statement relative to the calling of the speciffl ses sion he demands that the session be lim ited solely to ratification of suffrage and completely ignores his .promises to the soldiers.—Copyright, 1920, Indiana Pub licity Bureau.

Maria* Eye SLcamij Ce., CkiAgy SAYS STRICKEN FIGHTERS NEED MORE U.S. CARE War Risk Examiner Declares Money Should Not Be Denied Cause. ‘SHORT BREATH* NEW AIL Uncle Sam must awaken to the need of building more hospitals and sanitoriums to care for his fighters who succumb to that greatest of enemies, white plague, today declared Maj. Samuel McGaughey local war risk insurance examiner, 407 Indiana Trust building. "It isn’t a question now of trying to pinch dollars in cutting down national expenses as far as pensions are con cerned,” said Maj. McGaughey, “but it is vitally necessary that the government save money and conserve man-power by extending the present inadequate facili- MAJ.

We must en large our quarters for the lung cases if we do the right thing by the deserv ing boys who sacrificed their lives, per haps a living sacrifice at this time, but eventually a slow, sickening end." Since he has been made war risk In surance examiner, Maj. McGaughey has examined about 1,000 cases involving adjustment of war Insurance and from that list he had been able to draw many conclusions concerning the health and hope of the service men. SHORTNESS OF BREATH IS GENERAL COMPLAINT. "I find that the general complaint of the men examined,” began the doctor, "Is ‘shortness of breath.’ Back In the Civil war days when the government sought to adjust pension cases we had chronic diarrhoea, so I have been told by older physician*, but now we have bad lungs instead of bowel trouble, due In part, no doubt, to the use of gas and liquid fire, high explosives, higher geared methods of drilling men, intensive systems of handling men, speeding up the war chariots; in fact,, ail have no doubt contributed to a higher tension in nervous systems. "But,” said the doctor, "I have con cluded that cigarettes have played a greater part In developing shortness of breath in the men who have come to when STORE Good Clothes; Nothing Else Our Big Sale of Men’s and Youns Men’s Fine OVERCOATS SavSiXs Be S an nis Morning. —Don’t fail to get in on UflgJt these worth-while Small Boys’ r\ .

Dyers and Cleaners of State to Meet Indiana dyers and cleaners will meet in annual convention at the Hotel Severln beginning next Monday for two days. Plans for the convention have been com pleted by C. H. Maiben of Logansport, Ind., president of the association; Charles Richardson, secretary, of Lo gansport, and C. F, Gregg of Indian apolis. The convention plans call for an address of welcome by Mayor Jewett and various trade il&s.by members of the association. Tfle national convention to be held in Cincinnati late in January will be the chief topic of the Tuesday afternoon session. me for examination. They smoked too many for their physical good, and now we hear that wail, ‘shortness of breath’ until I’m almost tired of it. "And yet I am casting no reflection upon the gomplalnants,” he continued, “for I am convinced that fully 95 per cent of the eases are genuine that have applied for war risk relief. The other 5 per cent are malingerers. There are de serving men who have not yet sought to be examined for better adjustment of their cases, and some are still walking the streets, entitled to better relief.” MUST BE EXAMINED IN YEAR OF DISCHARGE. Maj. McGaughey emphasized the fact that all service men' entitled to relief under the war risk clause must be ex amined within one year after they are discharged, if they expect to be bene fited, although the government will con tinue to make good for, five years, but no readjustment will be made on a post war basis. Impatience on the part of soldiers to get back home, Maj. McGaughey declared, caused much confusion in the medical cases contingent upon the government’s promise to return the men to civil life as sound as possible. "The mad rush to get back among rela tives,” the major said, "was natural, of course, but in many cases men should not have lied about their conditions as they did in order to be discharged, and many of these cases of personal health irresponsibility are now popp' eg up for readjustment. Wa are beginning to real ize in many gassed cases that It will take time to see what the actual post conditions will be.” War risk Insurance cases have been roughly divided into wounded, arrested and active tubercular, rheumatism, gassed and heart cases, Maj. McGaughey ex plained. As one of the moat popular physicians in the city, Maj. McGaughey has had an interesting experience dealing with med ical cases of the army. He was com missioned captain in the medical corps May 20, 1918, sent to Camp Greenleaf, Ga., Aug. 13, 1918, and transferred in October to Camp Dlx, N. .T. He had re ceived overseas orders when the armi stice was signed and was disappointed in not being able to see service in Europe. He was appointed war risk Insurance ex aminer Sept L last.

Why Girls Need REOLQ Every mother knows the danger of that critical period when her daughter approaches womanhood. She knows that the tenderest care Is necessary and that her daugh ter's health and happiness, perhaps even her life are in the balance. The wise mother will safeguard her daughter’s health and not per mit her to overstudy, overwork or undermine her health by worry, so cial affairs and tasks that are too heavy for her strength. The healthy girl becomes the strong perfect woman—the suc cessful woman—the happy wife and mother. It is every girl's birth right to be happy and healthy and mothers should watch this danger period and make sure that over study or overtaxing the strength does not sap the energy, deplete the blood, exhaust the nervous system and lower the vitality. Girls who are pale, anaemic, nervous, languid—those who lack vitality—or are overtaxing their strength—need a SYSTEMATIC TREATMENT OF REOLO. It Is a wonderful tonic and supplies the Invigorating iron, life-giving oxy gen and reconstructive cell-salts that the body must have to main tain strength, energy and vitality. The large package of REOLO contains 100 pleasant, tasteless tab lets, enough for two weeks’ treat ment and only costs one dollar. It has given remarkably successful re sults for the systegiatic treatment of girls. Every package is guaran teed and your money will be re funded if it does not giro nnmi>lnle satisfaction. Henry J.

"For eight years I suffered something awful with stomach trouble and lum bago,” continued Mr. Simpson, “and al though 1 tried many different medicines I never got hold of a thing that did me any good. I could not eat the slightest thing without being In misery after wards, and I would fill up with gas and bare such terrible cramping pains In my stomach I could hardly bear them. The lumbago was terrible and I would hare such awful pains In my back, and, In fact, all through my body, that 1 could not straighten up without its nearlv killing me, and I jnst had to go in a stooped position all the time. I was not even able to lift a shovel of coal at times and would get In such bad shape I couldn’t work. Finally the stomach tronble, along with the lumbago and the loss of weight got me where l would hare had to glre up entirely. ‘‘One day I read a statement by aim in a Peoria newspaper who described hie condition as being very similar to mine and said that Tanlac bad com pletely rid him of his troubles, and I told my wife If Tanlac bad dene so much for thlg man perhaps It would help me also.
