Stansbury Says Parties Must I
Share Board Jobs.
Common councils and boards of trus- j
tees of cities throughout the state may
not elect more than two members of
the same political party to serve on j
school boards, aeording to an opinion
given today by Elo Stansbury, attorney
general. >-
The opinion was given in response to
an Inquiry from L. N. Hines, superin
tendent of public instruction, who asked
information regarding the election of
members of school boards, before such
elections take place next Tuesday In
It has been the policy of many coun
cils and town boards in cities of the
state to elect all members of the school
'board from the same rarty, the hoards
believing that since their town or city
was incorporated before the acts of Will,
which forbid such action, they had the
legal right to do so.
Mr. Stansbury’s opinion reads:
••The acts of 1919 do not require the
election of more than one trustee
in each city or town each year, except in
the creation of anew school corporation,
but it does require the election of one
trustee, and he may not be an adherent
of the political party to which the other
two members of the board adhere.
“The person elected may be a man or
a woman."
In the elections of' new members of
staool boards throughout the state next
Tuesday, the councils and town boards
will be held strictly to the law as given
by the attorney general, according to a
statement of the superintendent of pub
lic instruction.
WASHINGTON, May 28.—Senator Cum
mins of lowa, once landed as labor’s
friend, is now officially branded as one
of its arch enemies.
His record, sent from the headquarters
of the nonpartisan political campaign
committee of the American Federation of
Labor to his union constituents, contains
this footnote:
“Senator Cummins reversed his favor
able attitude on labor in every particu
lar by becoming the father of and In ad
vocating the Cummins railroad bill, mak
ing strikes unlawful.”
The record shows him to have been
one of the strongest champions of labor
measures previous to the introduction of
his railroad bill.
An aggressive fight to defeat him for
re-election i* being conducted by a v*.

have united in the support of his oppo

quarters of the Plumb Plan league.

Kuppenheimer Quality
plus Schloss Service
IT IS an ideal combination when you buy clothes to be able to
v choOse from the best, aided by helpful store service and com
plete stocks. This is exactly what we have for you in KUP
PENHEIMER Clothes plus Schloss service. And more and more
are the men of this city appreciating the combination.
Right now, when you are being lured by the cry of “Cheap” prices,
is a time to ponder the reason. You’ll find it in the quality of the
clothes offered. And in most instances the ‘ ‘quality” is so lacking
that the price is really high.
This is not a “price” store—primarily. We are not endeavoring
to build volume sales—but we ARE selling quality cIothes—KUP
PENHEIMER made—at prices which insure satisfaction, with an
absolute guarantee for service.
Your new suit for Decoration Day should reflect this very spirit—
it will if it comes from this store.

Liberty Bond
Tax Exemption
WASHINGTON, May 28.—Author
ity for the treasury to make final
settlement under which back taxes
estimated at one billion dollars will
be paid the government is provided
in a bill passed today by the house
and senate to the senate.
The measure amends the 1918 tax
The bill provides that treasury
cisions, accepted by the taxpayer,
shall not be reopened, modified or
set aside by any official or court
except on a showing of fraud materi
ally affecting the tax levy.
Besides affecting the tax settlement,
the bill would create additional Lib
erty bond exemptions.
Bonds to the value of $125,000 held
by one Individual would be exempt
from the. Income surtax, excess profits
and war profits levies for two years
after the proclamation of peace.
The same exemptions on $50,000
would be granted for three years
after that proclamation.
“Among other things, I think Gov.
Lowden’s frank statement on his earn
ralgn expenditures has helped his cause.
“This Is no 'dark horse - year,” de
clared Hert. “The successful candidate
will be from among those whose nam*-*
already have been prominently Identi
fied with the race."
Gov. Edward I’. Morrow of Kentucky,
who has been mentioned in some quar
ters as a possible outside choice, will
not be a candidate, Hert said.

WASHINGTON, May 28.—Government
ownership of railroads and merchant ma
rine was demanded today by the Farm
ers' National Council in a letter ad
dressed by George P. Hampton, director
of the council, to the democratic and

Other planks he said the farmers
wanted were:
Legislation to control the packers.
Taxes on lands and other natural
resources held for speculation.
Adequate and cheap credit for farm

CHICAGO, May 2.B.—Workers employed
in preparing the Coliseum for the repub

Postal Telegraph wires from the build
The workers notified Charles P. Hall,
superintendent of the Coliseum, that if
nonunion men were employed to Install
the wires they would strike. ' Western
Union officials said today that that he
matter was entirely in the hands of the

Postal officials said they had not

the Indianapolis company is permitted to

It would appear that there is an
obvious advantage to the Washington

holders the governor who appoints the

The “Joker” in Tire Advertising
There are tricks in all trades—in advertising as well as in boiler making. In
tire advertising especially the tricky tricksters strive to befuddle the gentle reader.
Here is an example of one of the favorite “jokers” that reads something like this:
"Compare our tire prices with any ‘list’ of high-grade tires.” Now, we know and
you know that about the only time you have to pay “list” for a tire is when you
have a blow-out in a little country town where there is but one garage, and that
garage is manned by one whose motto is, “I’ll get mine while getting’s good.” If
we charged “list” for all the tiresNve sell we would be vulgarly rich within a year.
We, t/'o, invite comparison of prices—not with the “list,” but with the prices
quoted by other dealers on tires of like kind and quality. Try the comparison on
the Goodrich tires which are quoted below:

We bought them before the March Bth advance in prices, and
because of that fact we can quote prices that will bear the test
of comparison with those of other dealers on tires of like kind.

pany, nor the Indianapolis company, is
paying dividends to stockholders, but
that only makes the case of discrim
ination more flagrant.
It has also been asserted that the local
company's securities are representative
of water, but this assertion fails when
it is taken into consideration that the
local company is valued for rate mak
ing purposes at 19 per cent less than
It Is valued for taxing purposes.
It can -hardly be argued that the state
is levying a tax on the "water” said to
be contained in these securities.
Asa matter or Tact, the discrimina
tion against the Indianapolis company
is more flagrant than it appears on the
surface for the reason that the tax rate
in Marion county is higher than the tax
rate in Daviess county, where the prop
