TELLS PROBERS SIMS IS WRONG IN HIS IDEAS Commanding Officer Should Not Be Consulted When Awards Are Changed. WASHINGTON. Jan. 21.—Rear admiral Henry T. Mayo, former com mander of the Atlantic fleet, tool? isse yesterday with Rear Admiral Sims on the question of naval decorations. Mayo, testifying before the senate In vestigating committee, justified the fail ure of the navy department to consult with commanding officers concerning decorations. Sims, in his testimony, crit icized the department on this p’oint. Only one member of the stafT that served under Mayo, as commander of the entire American fleet during the war, received a naval decoration, the admiral told the committee. He recommended a dozen members of his staff for a decoration, all for the navy cross, the lowest grade. His chief of staff, Capt. O. P. Jackson, was the only one rewarded. All were at sea during the war, he sa^d. “My chief of staff was the only mem ber of my staff who received an award,” Admiral Mayo said. “The awards board was not partic ularly clear on policy. I talked over the policy I followed with Admiral Knight,” Mayo said. “It was my idea that we should be conservative in the award of the D. A. M.” He disagrees with the views of Admiral Sims that the command & officer should have been consulted re the relative weight of the recom mendation was changed. “There Is a feeling In the department which depreciates the value of the staff,” Admiral Mayo said. ‘“lf these men are not rewarded It will discourage bright men from taking their places In future wars. “There Is a feeling that all the staff has to do is to accompany the old man and look pretty. This is wrong.” The recommendation of award for Capt. Christie, who lost his ship, was given for acts committed afterward, he said. “He was not given it for the loss of hie ship,” Mayo said. "It would be an unfortunate thing for a man who lost his ship to be awarded a medal for the loss,” Mayo said. Bpeaklng of policy relative to the award of D. S. M. for men who lost ships Mayo said for the good of the service, “a man should not be honored.” “In the British navy a man who loses a ship is never given another command. That Is a good rule for the service. It does Injustice to the individual at times,” he said. “I feel that a young officer should be made to feel that he would not lose possibility of future com mand by the loss of his ship when placed in a dangerous position. I do nor feel he should be rewarded for going into danger. That Is what. he is there for.” SOUTH SIDE NEWS Persons having Items for the South Side News Column may call L. W.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Jan. 21.—The rifle Is the only law in the state of Coa hulia, Mex., John R. Blocker, rancher, told the Fall senate subcommittee inves tigating Mexican conditions yesterday. Blocker operates a half million-acre cattle ranch for a stock company and de clared that frequent bandit raids, lack of protection by the Mexican government and general lawlessness in 'that state had cost his company $2,500,000 in profits in the last five years. Mrs. F. M. Parmalee told the committee of the killing of her husband by Mexi can bandits while returning from Mer cedes, Tex., with gold to pay the mill hands of the Llano Grand sugar mill. Several of the bandits were killed, she said, by a posse of Texas rangers. The committee adjourned for the day following an executive session. H.

Cost of Living and Price of Gas * V v ' ALL ITEMS of prime necessity entering into the daily budget of the “Ultimate Consumer,” the cost of gas has shown the slightest increase during this period of advancing costs of living. This has been true .of the whole country, and especially true of Indianapolis, as is shown by this state ment of gas prices in all cities of 100,000 population or over, which depend upon artificial gas. INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA —1910-50 cents —1914-55 cents —1919-60 cents / -x / - .. ... A *N'OTE—Official publications received since publication of tljis list on January 10th permit corrections in these cases, which bring the figures entirely up to date. It will be'observed that St, Louis drops out of the j 75-ceut class, an increase to 85 cents having been authorized in July, 1919. N Os the important Canadian cities. Montreal has a gas rate of 85 cents; Quebec, $1.25; Toronto, 90 cents; YYinncpeg (municipal plant), $1.35. Toronto, which has been supposed to have about the best managed gas company on the continent, was obliged io increase from 70 cents to 80 cents in 1917, and to 90 cents in 1918. The foregoing are the rates applicable to ordinary domestic consumers who pay their bills promptly. In practically every city except Indianapolis the rate is higher unless bills are paid within ten days. In many cities applications for the increase of rates are pending, but even with further increases requested, gas will still be relatively about the cheapest of the necessaries of life. Os the three cities which come nearest to Indianapolis with a rate of 75 cents, Los Angeles has the advantage-of very cheap oil, as well as some supply of natural gas. Baltimore buys a very large proportion of its gas from the Bethlehem Steel Corporation, and v Milwaukee obtains a con siderable proportion from an independent coke oven plant which has many advantages over those of the Citizens Gas Company.

SAYS CARMEN DELAY FIREMEN l Vigorous Complaint Filed by Chief Loucks With Board Vigorous complnlnts were lodged against the conduct of many motormen i and conductors on street cars yesterday by Fire Chief John C. Loucks. who de clared the fire department had heen de layed on many occasions by violations ; of traffic rules. A list of minor acej. dents declared to have been caused by i street cars also was submitted. Dr. Henry Jameson, chairman of the } board of directors of the street railway company, was present aft the board meet ' lng and explained the difficulties of the company. TRAFFIC RULES • CONSTANTLY mtOKEN. Chief Loucks said street car men have persistently violated a traffic ordinance requiring all cars to stop when fire apparatus is making a run along the street car right of way. Motormen also have disregarded the blockade rule and failed to leave the required distance be tween cars when two or more were stopped on the main lines, he said. In two instances street gars ran over fire hose, Chief Loucks added. Mr. Jameson explained to the board that the street railway company de sired to co-operate with the city In en forcing the traffic rules, but admitted the discipline of street car men was bad. He attributed this to the necessity of employing new men constantly. Mr. Jameson Informed the board that within the last six months the personnel of the street railway employes has chauged 231 per rent, a great number of the men having taken up more remunerative work. The railway representative said that It was impossible for tfls company to pay wages as high as other con cerns. DISCIPLINE BAD, SAY'S JAMESON. „ “At present the discipline among our employees is bad.” said Mr. Jameson. “But we expect this to improve right along. We are anxious to co-operate with the city in every way to enforce traffic regulations and will lend every possible assistance.” The board dismissed Howard McCarty, substitute fireman, on charges preferred by the fire chief. It was said that Mc- Carty worked one day and failed to appear from that time. The resignations of James Shea, substitute member of the fire department, and Ernest Beremnn, englfife company No. 9, were accepted by the board. The appointment of Theodore Thompson aR regular member of hose company No. 20 was confirmed. On recommendation of Chief of Police Kinney the appointments of Carrie V.

Jan. 21.—“1 wish to buy a toothbrush," you inform a Prague drug gist in your best German. “Cztch Grhrnsk-pizhtzs-mhrnrtovik,” replies the druggist in a tone of firm conviction. “I don’t talk Czech,” you say politely. “Please speak German.” “Bltukn-tak-vrkzkh-prp,” he says more firmly than before.

Science has proved that the body is only a collection of ceils and that Nature requires twelve cell-salts to keep the cells of the body in per fect health.
