Board Takes Action to Halt
Employes' Activity.
j A move to protect employes of the
public schools from approach by pol
iticians who desire them to actively en
gage In the campaign in the interests
of certain candidates, was made by school
officials today.
School employes are forbidden by a
rule of the board of school commissioners
from taking any active part in any po
litical campaign, other than Toting.
The board, at a meeting last night,
ordered copies of the rule posted where
all employes might see them.
Commissioner Charles L. Barry, upon
whose motion the decision to post the
rule was made, stated that he has re
ceived a number of reports of school em
ployes being approached by politicians
who urged them to work on behalf of
certain candidates and that he instituted
the board action in order that the em
ployes might know that they were sub
ject to dismissal from the service if they
heeded the requests of the political work
ers. "
Be stated that so far as he knows the
charge of tampering with school em
ployes can be made against no particular
party since workers of several are said
to have been guilty.
The board decided to request a con
ference with officials of the Knights of
Columbus after it had adopted a resolu
tion informing the lodge that it did not
i believe the use of a part of Shortrldge
’ High School should be granted for the
night school for former service men,
which the order proposes to operate,
t The sympathy of the board with the
lodge’s project was expressed and the
order was invited to cooperate with the
public night schools already in existence
by giving its financial support to a pub
lic night school at Shortrldge to be con
ducted by public school authorities.
A committee composed of Commission
ers Barry, Tutewiler and Allison was ap
. pointed to attend the trial of George
j Baker, foreman of custodians and labor
ers, on charges of assault and battery in
! Justice Conrad Keller’s court Saturday
morning for the purpose of determining
if the board should pay Baker’s attor
ney’s fees.
Baker, it was reported by Carl W.
Carton, superintendent of buildings and
grounds, was attacked by Oliver De Atley.
2160 North Illinois street, custodian of
seftsoi No. 32, when he suspended the
latter pending final action of the board
on a complaint of tho school principal
that De Atley Is Incompetent.
Baker’s defense of himself, Mr. Burton
reported, resulted iu De Atley filing
charges against him.
The supexjntendent of buildings and
grounds suggested that the board hire
counsel to defend Baker.

Mrs. Charles A. Pope, 3315 East

“My two little girls were playing in
the neighborhood in the afternoon, when
this man Llngenfelter, who was riding a
motorcycle, put his machine In an alley
near my home and came up to where the
: children were playing.
“He asked the children to aid him in
finding , a piece of wire as he told them
that his motorcycle was broken and
would not run unless he had a piece of

“The children, just as children would

them if they wanted more money.
“The children became frightened at his

Although it is a well-known principle
of law that it is the duty of a grand
jury to present a true bill when it has
reason to believe that a crime has been
committed and it is never within tho
province of the grand Jury to determine
whether the evidence before it is con

The operators may drive the commis

persist In the'r refusal to furnish coal
to tho people of the State upon the order
of the commission, all the facts In the
possession of the commission will be
given to tbe public.
Tho Investigation showed that ten com
panies In Indiana produce one-third ot
the coal; that twenty-six companies pro

brought about by the conduct of the op

WASHINGTON, Oct. 13.—The Federal
Reserve Board will not change its policy
to provide greater extension o{ credit to
the farmers, as requested tfy a conference
of farmers here with the national board
of farm organisation, according to Sena
tor Lee S. Overman of North Carolina.
Senator Overman made this statement
following a conference with Governor
Harding of the Federal Reserve Board.
He stated that he had been assured by
Governor Harding that there can be no
change o t policy for .the beueflt of the
Unless relief is granted the farmers
a general panic and ruin are Inevitable,
according to the statement prepared by
committee appointed by the farmers.
The statement, which contained a set
of demands which the farmers will press
before the beads of governmental depart
ments and bureaus here, pictured the out
look as extremely serious.
Conditions In the agricultural regions,
it was said, are desperate and the farm
ers’ frame of mind ominous.
The producers of all crops, the state
ment declared, have come to feel that
thV band of the Government is against
them. *
Officials of the Treasury Department
and the Federal reserve board are
charged In the statement with having ex
ceeded tbelr authority in publicly an
nouncing opinions of the prices of farm
products which hare resulted in disas
trous price declines.
The farmers demand these officials
discontinue such statements.
The effect of these statements, it is
urged, was that banks have withheld
loans from farmers.

showed a “Ford pleasure car” listed at a
yearly expense of $1,149 for repairs only.
The use which was made of the car
was not determined and Mr. Dalton said
he would verify the figures.
The Item was found on the cost sheet
by Mr. Young, and when it was men
tioned brought a smile and laugh to
about fifty assembled retailers.
Mr. Dalton explained that Ms com
pany, since the issuance of order No. 3,
bad violated the law, and had sold coal
at a margin of $3 a ten. Bales at the
fixed orlee would have led to a loss of
75 cents a ton. he said.
In closing his presentation of evi
dence he said the figures were presented
to the commission upon the assumption
that the commission would allow a rea
sonable profit.
Coal receipts, he said. In answering h
question of Mr. Young, were at the pres
ent time below normal, yet better than
the same period for the previous year.
The high cost of coal. Mr, Dalton said,
depends somewhat upon the present
Attorney Frederick E. Matson stated
that the Indiana Retail Coal Merchants'
Association expected to submit suffi
cient evidence to the commission to show
that it was necessary to fix a certain
price for a certain group of retailers in
various sections of the state, with the
assumption that when the evidence is
submitted the commission will act ac
• Mr. Matson pointed out that it was nec
essary to- arrange in groups retailers
who desired rehearings or moCfiflcatlons
of the order to expedite matters, and
otherwise the commission would be en
gaged in hearing individual cases for
months, while no coal would be produf*<j
at the prices fixed in the meantime,
Petitions for rehearings from retail coal
merchants will be received by Mr. Matson
and grouped by him, then presented to
the. commission for modifications.
Fates of other retailers and wholesalers
are scheduled for Thursday.
In opening the hearing Mr. Matson
read a long statement which be said
conveyed the views and opinion of re
tailers on the order* of the special coal
jand food commission.
Mr. Maiaon said the retailers were
united in their statement that the mar
gin of $2 25 fixed by the commission did
not cover the actual coet of operation,
to say nothing of allowing a profit.
He declared that the retailers were
honest business men, and there vti t no
reason to believe that as a class they
were less honest or less truthful than
other citixena, and that their atatementa
were entitled to consideration.
He said that retailera had suffered
considerable losses, and were in no dv
gree responsible for the distressing coal
situation, yet were as anxious as the
consuming public that an adequate sup
ply of cool be made quickly available.
“Competition will prevent unfair retail
profits, the same as in other lines of
business,” stated Mr. Matson.
Other statements made by Mr. Matson
follow In part: "This is the first time in
the history of the country that a com
modity of ordinary commerce lias been
taken out of the field of competition and
the prices fixed for the merchant.
"It is nlso the first time where any
public commission has Tnidertaken arbi
trarily to fix a price genenuly and with
out regard to conditions local and indi
vidual to the concern furnishing the
thing for which the price is fixed.
"A comparison of rate-fixing powers
and methods of the Public Service Com
mission. with that of the coal commission,
were shown by Mr. Matson in his re
marks, after which he said that Indi
vidual concerns only were governed by
the Axed price. , -
"No rsrte Is ever fixed which will drive
an existing concern out of business, but
the right to continue In a business al
ready establlahed is and must always
be recognized.
‘Never before has a commission un
dertaken to fix a flat rnt® applying alike
to every community In all parts of the
state, and alike to all Individual con
cerns, without regard to the various con
ditions under which they ar® doing
Refusal of certain Indiana mino oper
ators to furnish coal to Indiana whole
salers and retailers, and the failure ot
the Indiana special coal and food com
mission members to "get together” for
a conference has developed a crisis in
the present coal situation.
Aside from a few exceptions, mine
operators will not put their product on
the market at tbo prices fixed by the
coal commission, it is said.
Wholesalers and retailers state they
have quit handling Indiana coal, as they
cannot operate on the margins of profit
Some dealers have Indiana mine run

higher than that fixed by the commis
sion, but the same dealers explain It

He told of the investigations of the

Constitution of the United States.
The report of this eomaliu.ee, he said,

The speaker devoted much time to the
varloua stands taken by the Republican
presidential candidate on the League of
Nuttons, and outlined the eleven different
positions taken by Senator Harding In
regard to "the” or “a” league or as
sociation of nations.
He declared the league of Natlona Is

He named the various religious de
nominations and societies that have In
dorsed the League of Nations and de
clared that no person, or sect of men
who have the Interests of humanity at
heart can conscientiously refuse to ac

Governor Cox asked the people of In

"Your Senator, Jim Watson, is against
tbo league, and Thomas Tsggart, your

"I aak you to send him to Washington

on the league and has declared himself

South Bend, Ind.— 1 "I cannot praiae Doctor Pierce’s Favorite Prescription too highly for the
great benefit it has been to me in years gone by. I was in very poor health with a complication
of ailments brought on by inward weakness, when my children were small, and it was the Favorite
Prescription which restored me to health after all other doctoring had failed. I have recommended
this medicine to many ailing women and I have never had one come bfeck to me and complain that
the Favorite Prescription had not helped her. But many times I have heard them say * Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription is the best medicine I have ever taken.’"—Mas. Jennie Dickerhoff, No.
