‘White Collar’ Men
Pass Up Matrimony
CIIICAGO, Feb. 13.—Salaried men of
“white collar” callings are steering clear
of matrimony, but wage earners In the
various crafts are rush-lng pell mell into
it, records of the marriage license bu
reau show. Marriages of the former are
reported as being 25 per cent below nor
mal, while those of wage earners are
breaking all records. The clerk in charge
of the bureau, which is an “economic
barometer.” attributes the discourage
ment of the salaried men on matrimony
to the high cost of living and the fact
that their earnings have not kept place,
proportionately at least, to those of the
men drawing wages.

AIMS AT 60,000
Secretary Newgent Says
Membership Gains 5,000
The American legion in Indiana is
growing at the rate of 5,000 a month.
“Our total membership is about
25,000,” I-. Russell Newgent, state sec
retary, said today. “We are now grow
ing at the rate of 5,000 a month, and
a state-wide drive in the spring is ex
pected to bring the total membership to
not less than 60,000. There are 256
posts in Indiana.”
Tho organization of many posts in
rural communities Is proving a pleasant
surprise to legion officials, according to
Mr. Newgent. A state organizer was
employed for a time, hut due to the
voluntary efforts of ex-service men in
many parts of the state in forming
posts this office was discontinued.
Posts are being formed in many rural
communities and small towns, where no
effort ever has been made by legion
officials to organize. ,
These posts are becoming an im
portant part of the community life in
these portions of the state, according jo
reports received by Mr. Newgent.
Immediately after the adoption of rules
for the formation of legion women's
auxiliary by a committee which meets
for this purpose in Washington, D.
on Dec. 16, many auxiliaries will be.
chartered in Indiana. There now are
about twenty applications for such or
The Vetter-Munier post, a south side
organization, has the unusual distinction
of being composed almost entirely of en
listed men. An officer of the post said:
“A canvass indicates that only three men
held commissions. The post commander
was a corporal, and the the post adjutant,
vice commander and treasurer were
privates.” The post has quarters at
Druids' hall, Kansas and South Meridian
streets. Meetings are held the first and
third Friday of each month. The next
meeting will be held on Friday, Feb. 20.
The Robert E. Kennington post, which
has headquarters in Castle hall, is going
in strong for sports. Every member who
has had any athletic experience is asked
by the committee. The committee in
charge of formulating the athletic pro
gram is William Deery, chairman; Curly
Ash and Thomas A. Hendricks.
Parents Neglected to Teach
Them to Talk.
POMONA, Cal.. Feb. 13. How easily
the chain of civilization Is broken and
how definitely its very maintenance de
pends upon every parent’s training of
the child, Is dramatically illustrated here
in the case of the three Keown boys.
Harold, Fell and Roy Keown, 10, 9 and
8 years old, are healthy, physically nor
mal American youngsters, living In s
bustling town, who have never learned
to talk, simply because their parents
neglected to teach them how.
They use a strange gibberish of their
own invention, as primitive as the be
ginuings of language must have been, in
communicating with one another and In
making known their wants to the rest
of the family.
The astonishing case was placed be
fore the Welfare league of Pomona i.
few days ago by a teacher who, when 1
the boys appeared at school, discovered
that, while apparently otherwise normal,
they seemed bereft of speech.
An examination by specialists showed
no defects. They were bright, sunny,
though shy children and devoted to one
another. Their plight aroused wide sym
pathy. and today all Pomona '.s eager
to help “the poor Keown kids” step up
out of what is virtually a primitive world
to the level of other American boys of
their age.
The boy’s father is L. A, Keovrn. an
\merican, formerly of Rood River, Ore.
Both he and his wife have worked early
and late for years, having a hard time
making a living for their brood. In ad
dition to Roy, Cell and Harold, there are
five older children. The harassed parents
100 busy to give them much attention
simply turned the younger ones over to
the older.
They l>egan using a gibberish and to
communicate by signs, remaining al
ways together and keeping aloof from
other children. Soon they became merely
objects of pity to both the family and
to outsiders. They were almost as shy
as wild creatures and the parents ac
cepted the situation with stolid phi
losophy. It was not until they were
sent to school and the d.scovery was
made that they couldn’t speak intelli
gibly that definite, helpful interest was
aroused in their behalf.
The boys have now been placed In
three separate homes, where they are as
sociating with other lads and where
they are rapidly learning to speak. Each
new word mastered arouses Inordinate
pride and glee, and specialists watching
the case believe, that Roy, Uell and Har
old, so strangely haudleaped, will soon
be on a par with other children.
Woman Sends Two
Men to Hospital
PHILADELPHIA. Feb. 13—A lone
woman, fighting for the instalment plan
furniture against which a writ of re
plevin had been issued, sent two deputy
sheriffs to the hospital here and chased
out of her house twenty policemen who
sought to help the deputies.
Not only did Mrs. Ellen Gallagher of
N'o. 142 Hoffman street use her fists and
feet but she reinforced them with a
poker, a monkey wrench, scalding water
and a bottle ot turpentine.
What is a FAIR PRICE
for an ALL-WOOL
In Thursday’s ‘mail I received a circular letter from Mr.
John P. White, fair price commissioner of Marion county.
He asks that all merchants lay particular stress on their
low and medium-priced lines and goods known for their
serviceability and wear, I am more than glad to comply
with his request.
Take, for example my S4O
made-to-measure suit. It meets
Mr. White's most exacting re
quirements. It is low priced—
where else can you buy an all
wool, made-to-measure suit as
good as mine for $45, SSO or
even $55? It is of good ma
terial-nothing has ever been
found that Is as good as wool
for men’s clothes.
It is serviceable because it
is well made by the best tai
lors I can f. The trim
mings are higil grade; the but
tonholes (with exception of
trousers), are hand-made with
pure silk thread; the coat
front is built up with genuine
Belgian linen.
I have started to build a
trade of my own. I have the
SSO to S6O may be and probably is a “fair price” for other tailors
who give credit and have heavier overhead expense than I have.

convention of the Rotary at the annual
banquet last nlgbt. They are Evans
ville aDd Lafayette. The site for the

the Rotarians for naming him to the
high position, and said he saw greater
things coming for the Rotary in In
It was intimated at the banquet table

Despite Dry Year, Production
Shows Increase.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Feb. 13. Pm
, visional figures place the crop of grain
of all kinds in Saskatchewan, Manitoba
! and Alberta for 1919 at 4U9.fi12.000 bush
; els, as compared with 339,130,700 bushels
! In 1918.
This is considered a remarkable sbow
-1 ing for what was considered a dry year.
The Increase In yield was due to *n
j creased acreage. At prevailing prices
100,000,000 more bushels of grain make,
an Important difference in the money In
| circulation and accounts, to some ex
tent, for unusually good business con
ditions In the west.
The larger acreage was due in part
| to better prices for grain, which led
farmers to cultivate more land. New
I settlers were also an important factor.
| The unusually heavy immigration in the
! Inst six months, and 4he opening of 3,-
000,000 acres to farm settlement by the
Hudson Bay Company in the three ,prri-
I rle provinces, will result In crop rekirm*
this year, It is believed, that will dwarf
those of 1919. ,
Saskatchewan In 1919 was the leading
province in grain production. It came
wltlhin 5,000.000 of producing as muon
grain as Manitoba and Alberta combined,
the figures being: Saskatchewan, 232,.
582,000 bushels; Manitoba, 131,898 000, auq
! Alberta, 105,132.000. Saskatchewan came
I within 24 000,000 bushels of producing as
much grain as Ontario, Quebec, British
j Columbia and the Maritime provtuc >
I combined. The Saskatchewan crop was
33 per cent of all the grain grown in

Slate Convention at Tomlinson
Hall Gets Under Way.
The Indiana state labor party was in
tbe making today.
Several hundred delegates of organized

hall for the purpose of drafting a state
platform on which the labor party will
The convention met at 10 o'clock.
Charles Fox, president of tbe ladlana
State Federation of Labor, called the
convention to order.
The convention is proceeding under
rules formulated by the executive com
mittee of the federation of labor.
Among the speakers who will appear
during the convention are John Walker,
president of the Illinois State Federation
of Labor; Robert Corley of Atlanta, Ga.,
who is organizer for the International
Association of Machinists, and President
Among the men named as probable
state chairman of the new party, two
figured prominently—Frauds J. billon,
business agent of the Pattern Makers’
association of Indianapolis, and John
Fogg, a member of tbe United Mine
Workers of America at Terre Haute.
The real fight on the convention floor
Is expected when tbe convention us
called upon to approve a party platform.
This will bring to tbe front tbe leaders
of the two widely different groups in
the ranks of labor. On one 6ide is tbe
conservative crowd, which Insists that
, the Indiana stale labor party remain
safely conservative, by following the rec-
I ommendatious of the American Federa-
I tlon of Labor.
Opposite the conservative wing is the
faction which insists that labor candi
dates be named and that labor be called
upon to favor such labor candidates,
regardless of candidates of other par
ties who are favorable to organized
labor, but not members of tbe labor
Labor leaders are expecting that there
will be a clash between the two groups
when the platform is drafted.

60-Mile Gold Line
Found in Australia
LONDON. FVb. 13. —Is western Aus
tralia on the verge of a gold mining
boom ?
There have been so many wildcat
schemes In the past that people are chary
of crediting stories of new finds. In the
present instance, however, there is A
certain amount of official confirmation of
the authentic nature of the new fields.
Hon. J. D. Connolly, agent-general f*f
Western Australia, has received informs
tion from his government that the ie
cent finds in a direct line from Kalgoorlie
cover a distance of about sixty miles,
a stretch of gold-bearing formation
longer than anything of the kind hitherto
realized in Australia.
A more recent report from Kalgoorlie,
too, records the first indications of a
fresh field in which the samples from a
lode that has been struck are reported to
have given extremely high value, but
the width of the lode is not yet known.
Any breaking out of the skin, even
fiery, itching eczema, can be quickly
overcome by applying a little Men
tho-Sulphur, says a noted skin spe
cialist. Because of its germ destroy
ing properties, this 6ulphur prepara
tion instantly brings ease from skin
irritation, soothes and heals tfeo
eczema right up and leaves the skfn
clear and smooth.
It seldom fails to relieve the tor
ment and disfigurement. Sutferers
from skin trouble should get a little
jar of Mentho-Sulphur from any
good druggist and use it like a cold
cream. —Advertisement.
Drink Coffee
If It Causes Indigestion, a Couple of
Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets Will
Promptly Give Relief.
Indigestion caused by coffee Is the
same as indigestion caused by anythin*
else. If eating food or drinking coffee
makes you dyspeptic, all you need is
