Increased Business Shows
Need of Huge Increase in
Office Space.
Indianapolis will hare anew sky-line
within the next three years, in the opin
ion of many leading financial men of
the city.
L Anew era of sky-scraper building is
hand, declare many of these men who
instantly hare their fingers on the city’s
room and desk space in Indlan
iHs Is scarce. Some real estate men
here isn't any. Many large bulld
hare long waiting lists and daily
for space.
The rapid growth of Indianapolis as
a manufacturing city, the expansion of
many of the great manufacturing con
cerns of the country, the advertising
Indianapolis has received ns the best
shipping center of the country, making
it, in the opinion of many business men,
the best distributing center in America,
has attracted scores of manufacturers'
agents and jobbing representatives.
A temporary cause for the greet de
mand for office space, also, is the fact
that railroad companies which gave np
their local offices when the roads went
under government control are seeking
space again when the roads shall be
re'turned to private control in the near
future. These offices include those of
general agents, special representative'
and many other officials.
The one logical result of the situation
is a program of building, according to
financial men. Already two or throe
great office building projects are in
process of formation, and more will
follow, It is predicted.
E. A. West, manager of the Fletcher
Savings and Trust Company building,
says that there has been no vacant
space In his building for’ so long he
has completely forgotten when It was.
“We turn away dozens dally,” Mr. West
declared. “I don’t know what we are
going to do. Our space is all taken up.
We would like to see every newcomer to
the city comfortably and conveniently lo
cated, but there is an immutable law of
physics that two objects can not occupy
the same place at the same time. The
old tojyn is going ahead so fast that of
fice space, along with several other fea
tures, hasn't caught up with the rapid
pace its growth Is setting.”
Dick Miller, president of the City Trust
Company, says that he has been swamped
with applications for space in the City
Trust building.
“I almost had to throw <jne poor fellow
out of my office the other day." Mr. Miller
declared. “He simply would not take
no for an answer. T wish our build
ing were three times as big. I can cer
tainly sympathize vrtih any one on the
hunt for office space.'’
George B. Elliott, president of Breed,
Elliott & Harrison, investment bankers,
says that he knows personally of dozens
of firms and individuals that have tried
to get office accommodations in the city,
but to date have failed.
“There isn't any office space,” Mr.
Elliott said. “I don't know how many
instarces I am personally familiar with
or h: ve been called to my attention where
ofii. e space has been sought in Indian
apolis. It is one of the problems we
wiil have to solve and solve quickly and
rationally. Indianapolis is certainly go
ing to lb° front."
George W. Klein, manager of the Mer
chants Bank building, says that office
apace ranks along with the proverbial
hen's teeth.
“We haven’t looked at our tenants'
waiting list for more than nine months
and the outsiders' list I haven’t seen
for a year,” Mr. Klein said. “This does
n't Include the daily requests for office
and desk space we receive In person
and by mail. There isn’t any space
to be had in Indianapolis. Railroad
companies w hich had offices in our build
ing before the war now- want to come
back, but we have no place* to put them.
There isn't even desk room.”
It is generally agreed that the con
dition is not temporary, put is a direct
reflection of the rapid expansion the city
is making industrially.
COST $250,000
Tabernacle Presbyterian to Be
Located in Central Avenue.
Anew church building to cost approxi
mately $250.0(10 will tie constructed at
Thirty fourth street and Central avenue
by tbe Tabernacle Presbyterian church.
Plans and sketches of the new building
are now being prepared by Indianapolis
architects. They will be presented to the
building committee within the next ten
days and the most suitable sketch will
be adopted. The building will be of
brick or stone, according to Edgar Evans,
chairman of the building committee.
The site of the new building was pur
chased last year. About six months ago
a chapel for Sunday school was built on
the site.
The change in location of the church is
th* result of a survey made which shows
ye present building at Eleventh and
Meridian streets to be badly located and
away from the center of the eongrega
tion. The present church property will
be sold when the new building is com

take this new kidney remedy of Dr. Pierce’s the pains and stiffness
rapidly disappear, for “Anurie” (anti-uric-acid) is many times more
potent than lithia and often eliminates uric acid as hot water melts
sugar, thus removing rheumatism and lumbago.

act normally—just a little, and high-colored. I came into possession
of a package of Dr. Pierce’s Anurie and have taken but half of the

I think Anurie is a great kidney medicine. I would advise all who
suffer from kidney trouble to try Dr. Pierce’s Anurie Tablets.”

Plan Public Loans to Fit Ex-
Soldiers for Work.
WINNIPEG, Canada, Feb. 20.
Statutory authority to loan public funds
to returned soldiers who desire to qualify
as teachers for Manitoba public schools,
is asked by the department of education
in a bill to amend the public schools act,
presented for a second reading in the
legislature by Dr. Thornton, minister of
education. •
The clause relating to soldiers pro
vides :
“For the purpose of assisting returned
soldiers to become qualified as teachers,
tbe -lieutenant governor in council may
authorize the expenditure, by way of
loans from the funds of the province,
such sums as may be required, but not
exceeding in the aggregate the sum of
S4OO to any one soldier, and may fix the
terms of such loan.”
Authority is sought in the bill whereby
the department of education may, when
the occasion arises, loan money to school
districts to erect teachers' residences.

‘Smoking and Gambling ’
Among Members to Be
LONDON, Feb. 20.—A movement Is
under way in Europe to “purge” the
Young Women’s Christian Association of
certain habits and laxities that crept into
the membership during the war. It is di
rected mainly ngalnst smoking and gam
bling, but those supporting the move
ment also desire to have tho bylaws
against dancing and the theater enforc'd
as strictly as they were in previous years.
Factional strife is threatened among
the 85.000 members. A branch known as
the Evangelical Young Women's Chris
tian Association is behind the “purity
campaign,” but it is being opposed by
the "liberals” as narrow-minded and
puritanical. The "evangelical branch”
has issued a pamphlet in support of Us
effort to have the Y. W. C. A. conducted
as an adjunct to the church. The con
troversy is now getting into the press.
A graduated tax of from 1 to .TO per
cent on all fortunes exceeding 10,000
crowns is contemplated by the Czecho
slovak government. Further tax, rang
ing from 0 to -10 per cent, would bo
levied on gains in security values.

Cutting Torches, Worth S3OO,
Stolen From Prest-O-Lite.
Disgust felt by a band of yeggmen
with the ordinary burglary tools of
commerce is thought to have inspired the
theft of S3OO worth of tools from the
millwright department of the Prest-O-
Lite company plant, northwest of In
dianapolis, early today.
Safe robberies In small towns near In
dianapolis have been reported frequently
of late. Several times evidence that the
burglars had trouble with their tools
has been discovered. In a robbery at
Browusburg a month ago, at least one
safe is thought to have defied efforts of
the robbers. Again at Morgantown four
days ago yeggmen gave up a safe a*
a bad job and abandoned their tools.
Armed with a modern assortment of
burning torches and machinists’ tools,
such as was acquired by the Prest-O-
Llte plant robbers, the band should
have little difficulty in breaking any
strong box.
Included in the loot were implements
of a welding outfit, tt cutting torch, an
oxygen tank, an acetylene tank and torch
and machinists' tools.
The burglars entered the plant by
breaking a window, it was reported to
the police by Charles Fay, foreman of
the millwright department.
