GERMANY WILL PUNISH GUILTY, I SAYS SCHIFFER All Officers Listed by Allies for Extradition to Be Tried. 'NEW COURT PROVIDED p; BF/RLIN, Fob. 13.—Minister of Justice Schiffer announced today that the Ger i*uar. department of justice will arrest, Ltry and punish all of the Gentian oT kftcers on the allies’ extradition list |a gainst -whom It is possible to bring Kcourt proceedings, ‘’lrrespective of the in the negotiations now between the allies and Gcr £tnany.” I Herr Schlffer declared that Germany would press the trials of officers where fj*he. evidence justifies, "even if the allies !• should' withdraw their extradition de .tn.inds." | He added that already Germany has war criminals for their acts in and Belgium, but “like Kngland tU*fl France, Germany keeps secret the S' executions of her soldiers.” it The allies and myself are both of the ifeome purpose in wishiig to punish the Vuilty,” said Herr Schlffer. The allies litre proceeding arbitrarily while I am V proceeding legally. I am positive that the extraditions are impossible and 1 Mira equally confident that Germany will do her utmost to punish every guilty man. GERMAN SUPREME COURT PROVIDEO. | "The law which T drafted providing Kin a German supreme court at Leipzig to try all cases of war crimes, whether ’'committed in Germany or other enuu f tries, unanimously passed the national assembly on Dec. is.. This measure ad mits to the court representatives of the tallied governments as prosecutors, allied Biawyers and also witnesses from the al lied countries. I have instrnetccd the prosecutor in the supreme court at Le'p vig to act upon the receipt of the allied list and to examine ad the names udou it. He has been ordered further to re view all the German official records bearing on the cases in question and prepare indictments. Even should the allies withdraw their demand for extraditions we will proceed •with the matter and try every case listed where we have available evidence. The allies can not say that our action Is too late for they have previously refused our request for the names and the testimony they had in their possession. NUMEROUS CRIMINALS ALREADY PUNISHED. "We have already punished numerous war criminals for their acts in northern i,France and Belgium, but like France and •England. Germany does not publish the executions of her soldiers. But T have 'ordered these cases collected and if it is necessary I shall show the evidence to t lie entente. ' "The allied list is technically impos sible. It was arbitrarily, superficially and frivolously drawn. It is a mockery of justice; neither precise nor specific as to acts nor persons involved.” CHARGES ARE INCOMPLETE. Herr Schiffer hero refered to the orig inal list which he has in his possession. He continued: • “For instance, here is Mnj. von Bredow charged with murder, but it does not say ■whom, how T or where. When internation al law is invoked to secure a man for trial for his crimes, he can not be ex tradiated when only the general term "murder” is charged against him. In legal usage everywhere a man has the right to know the details of the charge against him so he can prepare for his defense.” i The correspondent was permitted to glance through the official list from Paris. It contained charges of pillage, theft, murder arid cruelty. In some cases there was a lack of details and In many instances no name was given.

An older Biblical saying has referred to “fruits” only in acquiring know-ledge of people, but Miss Claudia Baker, checker at a downtown cafeteria, has been able to study character from lunch trays and food checks as she daily per forms her work. In viewing the lunch trays that pass beneath her gaze, hundreds and hun dreds of them every day, Miss Baker has been able to read ’’folks'' like an open book. Here's her story: “A person in lifting his or her tray for my inspection actually tips me of! to a lot of ‘inside dope.’ and I can usually give any one a fairly good life history without even looking at the lines in the hand,” declared Miss Ba ker, with a smile.

They spend fairly well, especially .heavy when they have ladies with them. “The business men are light eaters generally, the hurcy-up typos, eating hastily; not heavy meat orders, courte ous but direct in selecting t. elr food. “Traveling men are invariably grouches, kickers and growlers, complaining at maDy things, for it seems to become a passion and habit with them.

The Marion county fair price commit tee is deluged with complaints of ex traordinary rents being charged in vari ous parts of the city. “We have far more complaints on rent than on anything else,” said John F. White, chairman, today in discussing the meeting held last night. “The complaints show that the raise in rents has been enormous, but the Lever law, under which we organized, gives us no authority to act along this line. “We have appointed a committee to investigate the complaints and report on it.” Last night a number of tenants in the eastern part of the city presented a pe tition to the committee asking that action be taken. Rents for some small houses bare Jumped from $11.50 a month to $35 a month in the last year, according to the petitioners. The committee also discussed the price of bread. The grocers will be asked to present figures, through the Indianapolis Retail Grocers’ association, to show the cost of handling bread. The present price of OVa cents wholesale and 11 cents retail will -be effective until the commit tee has obtained from the bakers and grocers figures showing their costs in February, according to Mr. White. Dealers Drive Cars Overland Instead of Paging Freight That driving motor cars overland from (he factories was not merely a war-time measure, but has become a recognized year round method of shipment, is proven by the many automobile factories that are using this means of transporting cars during the last few months. The fact that cars are being driven from the factory throughout tW entire year should offer conclusive proof to the “old-fashioned" people who lay up their ears for the winter, that the motor car has loftg ceased to be a “seasonable” conveyance. During the war when driveaways were an absolute necessity, farmers and coun try road commissioners got into the habit of helping, by keeping the roads passable during the winter months, and they are still doing so. but probably not so much to accommodate automobile dealers, as because it has been proved that keeping (he roads passable Is a mighty profitable thing for the community.
