Hart Tells of Striking Rodent in City ■ Market While Shopping. The campaign to exterminate rats In Indianapolis being conducted this week by the Women’s Department Club and the United States Public Health Service had its Inception, so far as the local club was concerned, when Mrs. W. H. Hart, former chairman of the community wel ■ fare section ar.d V now at bead of mflflll rx the rat drive com- mittee, stepped on a large rodent in the city market, V fr'Tj \ statement by her. (/l\ f The incident, as Atl related by Mrs. Hart, is illuminat ing ns pointing to conditions in tne market which the Department Club re peatedly has decried and which the Daily Times has often pointed out. The rat was stepped on while Mrs. Ilart was shopping in the market build ing one morning some time ago. Mrs. Hart said she got out of the rat’s way as quickly as possible and saw It run under a nearby stand. She passed on to another stand and was talking to the standholder there when she saw a wom an, evidently the owner of the stand under which the rat had taken refuge, start to go behind her counter, Mis. Hart said. SOUNDS FUTILE WARNING TO OTHER “ ‘That woman ought not to ge behind there. I Just saw a big rat. run In there,’ ” I told the standholder with whom I was talking,” Mrs. Hart said. “The woman to whom I spoke called to the other standholder and told her: “ ‘You’ve got company over there.’ “‘What do you mean?’ the other wom an asked. “ ‘Why, this woman says a big rat ran under your stand.’ “ ‘Oh, that’s all right, we’re used to them,’ the standholder replied. “You can be sure I don’t buy anything on the market any more that I can t wash,” Mrs. Hart concluded. The incident recalls the fact th’at the Women’s Department Club has been try ing to have city authorities clean up the market for several years without suc cess. It was thought some progress would be made when the board of safety’s special market commission, headed by Stanley Wyekoff, former Fed eral food administrator for Marion County, and including in its membership Mrs. Rowland Evans, representing the women's organization, made extensive recommendations. The commission inves tigated every pi-ase of the market and its report advised that the board of safety take immediate steps to make the place sanitary. NOW CALLED PARADISE FOR RATS. As the place is now operated it is a paradise for rats, statements of health authorities prove. Many of the stand counters have wooden fronts and sides, forming dark recesses within which rats may hide and grow fat. It is no secret that standholders let refuse accumulate beneath their counters. While some at tempt frequently is made to keep the premises clean, the refuse need not be left long for the rats to get all the food necessary to enable them to have a sleek, well-fed appearance. Health au thorities state that the only way to pre vent the evil is to have the counters set on legs 30 .there will be wide open spaces beneath. Itats do not reside nor frequent places Vbere they may he easily seen and driven ouL EVIDENT VIEW OF THE ADMINISTRATION. No one in the present administration seems to think anything would be gained by thoroughly flushing the market and scrubbing It as was don-* under previous marketmasters ev ry week There is of course, the possibility that rats would be discouraged if every standowacr were required to make his own stand sanitary by removing all re fuse. but orders.to this effect are ab sent and there is little disposition to enforce what regulations have beeen made for the market. The Department Club plans to reopen its fight for better market conditions at an early date. It Is understood. Mean while. Mayor Charles W. Jewett has an nounced that remodeling of the city market Is part of the city’s 1921 buiid tng program, and it is quite noticeable that ever since the city administration adopted tbe new market project, sanitary conditions in the market have l>een per mitted to grow worse. Expected to Name Committee Soon Col. L. R. ’Gignllllat, commander of the Indiana division of the American Le gion, is expected soon to name five mem bers of the organization to serve a= a legislative committee to cooperate with the State War Memorial Commission in arranging legislation for the proposed American Legion memorial. The appoint ment probably will be made by the end of this week, when Colonel Gignllllat comes from Culver. Authority was granted Colonel Gignll llat to appoint the committee by the executive council of the American Legion, in session here lest November. Follow ing the announcement of the war me morial commission that no recotnmenda tions would be made In the coming ses sion of the Legislature the work of push ing the project probably will be placed In charge of the legion committee. Request to Remove Troops Not Received WASHINGTON, Dec. 15.—The State Department has not received the resolu tions reported to have been laid before the Central American Union, asking withdrawal of American troops from Nicaragua. The State Department announced that the only American troops now In Nica ragua are Marines, a small detachment forming a legation guard and placed there with the consent of the Nicaraguan government. Assessors Meet One hundred fifty county assessors and their deputies met today in v the House of Representatives chamber of the Statehouse for their annual confer ence with the members of the State tax board. Addresses were made by Fred A. Sims, chairman of the tax hpsrd; W. C. Harrison, secretary of the tax board; Governor James P. Goodrich, Governor elect Warren T. McCray and W. N. Cox of Parke County. Thursday, the second and last day of the conference, the assessors will hear talks by Philip Zoercher and John G. Brown, tpembers of the hoard of tax commissioners, and other tax authorities of the State.' The general misunderstanding of the tax law and various problems which con front the assessors of the State in deal ing with the law were to be discussed by the members, according to Mr. Sims.

Many trappers in Indiana will not follow the business of taking fur this season because the hard work It en tails offers very little remuneration, Re cording to George N. Mannfeld, super intendent of fisheries and game of the State Conservation Department. Mr. Mannfeld basea his opinion on numerous letters received from fur takers all over the State who claim that an exceedingly weak market for pelts is no inducement to continue. The situation existing in Indiana is to be found in other States, and it is expected that as a result of the market slump and no active demand for pelts, thousands of animals which other wise would have fallen victims to hunters and trappers will escape this season. The unusual slump in the price of fur is attributed to n strike among work ers in the fur garment industry In the East. This tie-np has been in force since last May with 10,000 skilled employes re fusing to resume operations. Dealers were forced to hold vast quantities of furs which, had they been worked up Into articles ready for the consumer, would have found a ready market. The expense of holding over last season’s fur forced some dealers to borrow money in order to retain their stocks. In view of the large stocks on hand dealers are not not bidding actively for this season’s catch, and the market has declined until a mink pelt which last year commanded S3O now brings only about $4. Musk rats a year ago sold for $4.50 and today the price is around 40 cents. A skunk hide that last year was worth $0 and $7 today sells for about $1.50. Opossum hides are selling for 50 cents each where last year they sold for $2.50. In view of unstable market conditions which make it impossible for a trapper to realize any large amount of money from this season's work, many trappers will quit taking fur this year. While the situation is a genuine hardship to hundreds of men who last year made hundreds of dollars from the sale of furs. In the Interest of conservation it will give the fur bearing animals a chance to reproduce in numbers that will make fur taking profitable in the future. Trappers who contemplate a busy season and look forward to a rich reward for their labor, should investi gate the market before devoting much time to an enterprise which at the best will bring them but small remuneration this year. Mr. Mannfield estimates that more than a million dollars’ worth of fur was taken in Indiana last season. MIDDAUGH JURY SELECTION SLOW After spending most of the morning in an unsuccessful effort to obtain n Jury in the case of Charles Middaugh, known as "Big Shiner.” who is charged with violating the prohibition atatutes, coun sel this nfternoon resumed their efforts before Sfa*c!al Judge James M. Leathers of the Marlon County Criminal Court. Atorney Ira Holmes attempted to have the affidavit on which Middaugh was fined S2OO and sentenced to sixty days in the City Court and from which Mid daugb appealed to tbe Criminal Court, dismissed on the groupda that the State “had negatived the exceptions on the affidavit.” Prosecutor Claris Adams produced a Supreme Court decision In another case In which Mr. Holmes had represented n Uent by the name of James and that the Supreme Court had decided this point against Mr. Holme*. Judge Leathers then refuse-1 to dismiss the affidavit uud ordered the ease to trial. Mid-laugh pleaded not guilty. The case probably will last another dajT DANGERS OF RAT HANDLING ‘SAFE’ (Continued From Page One.) the community promiscuous handling of rats or rat tails would be a severe menace to the healthy individuals who handled them, but If one thor oUglily washes and cleanses the hands after tills procedure there 1* no more danger than tn handling any other unclean object. Q. Isn’t It true that more harm will be done and more disease spread by the widespread handling of rut car casses than by the unrestricted ac tivities of the rodents themselves? A. Positively not. for the reason that rats In public buildings and around restaurants and food-producing establishment* at time* eat off of food or run over It and contaminate It. This food goe* Into the stomach* of patron* and I submit the following argument: That there 1* o great difference between eating food con taminated from direct contact with rats and handling rat carcasses when the hands are washed afterward. A* a matter of fact, I don't know of any disease that can b# contracted hy handling a rat, providing the hands are washed and cleansed after the procedure. Q. Does not the doctor believe that he owes It to the public at least to issue a warning that the handling of rata la very dangerous, and should never be done without afterward thoroughly sterilizing the hands and such other partß of the body or cloth ing as may have touched tho disease laden bodies? A. It ought to bo accepted a* an . axiom that anybody who handles a rat will wash his hands. Thus are the skeptics and the "sin ister Interests” that would interfere wltn whatever the city board of health is reported to be doing driven to deep coTer! It might be dangerous to handle rats If the bubonic plague were present. But the bubonic plague Is not present Rata would be a *erlou menace .to the community If the bubonic plague were present and consequently all their tails ought to be amputated. But the bubonic plague la not present and the tails ought to be amputated anyhow. It is against the law to leave food stuffs offered for sale unprotected bo that rats may run over It, but It Is a lot easier to catch the rate and ampu tate their tails than it la to inforce the law concerning unprotected foodstuffs. Every one ought to wash one’s hands. Especially after handling rats or rat tails.

Thus the United States and Japan are the only two nations active today in ex tensive naval construction. At the present time, however, Britain's first-line strength Is estimated at 964,650 tons, nearly twice that the United States. The tonnage of the entire British navy today is placed at 2,345.712, which em braces 595 ships of all classes. The Uniter States has 347 ships in service today, totaling 1.137,914 tons, but 12- American ships are either building or projected, with a combined tonnage of 890,439. Prospective American vessels are said to represent newer types and greater gun power. Japan’s future provision for smaller craft Includes nine light cruisers, forty seven ocean going destroyers and forty six submarined, most of them more then 800 tons. The United States has provided for the construction of 11 auper-dread nnughts, 8 dreadnaugbts, 14 of the pre dreadnaught period, 6 battle cruisers. 10 cruisers, 45 destroyers and 54 subma- M’CVMBER RAPS SOLDIER BONUS NOW WASHINGTON, Dec. 15— Granting of a sold er bonus at present would lnllct a great hardship on taxpayers, Senator McCumber of North Dakota, acting chairman of the Senate Finance Commit tee, declared today. The fight to have the Senate adopt the bonus act passed by the House Inst session was opened today before the Sen ate Finance Committee by representa tives of World War veteran*. A decision or the bonus will be reached at this session of Congress, Me- Cnmlier predicted. ”1 hav„ no doubt Congress eventually will grant a liberal bonus to veterans," said McCumber, “but the principal ques tion now ts whether It would bo wise to grant It at the present time. •*We are now providing for the war disabled.” ho said. BRITISH ALARMED FOR SEA PRESTIGE LONDON, Dec. 15—The British are taking serious alarm over the possibility of losing their maritime prestige to America. The Globe In a leading article \today said ; “Britain’s supremacy on the sea, upon which our existence has depended for 806 years, appears to be very seriously men aced. As poor as we are at the moment, we will begrudge no expenditure that 1* required to preserve mastery of the seas. We would rather scrap every other department of Whitehall than to see that.” The newspapers gave conspicuous dis play to dispatches from Washington rc gard'ng Senator Borah* resolution to bring about an agreement between Amer ica, Great Britain and Japan to limit thetr armaments, but the morning papers printed no editorial comment. “Can the nations disarm?” asks the Fall Mall Gazette In Its headline over the Washington ilapatch. The Imperial defense committee, which met yesterday to consider the future na tal policy, Is continuing Its sessions to day with great secrecy. Sir I’ercy Scottt, famous British navr.l expert, Is leading a strong movement against the continued construction of -Ireadnanghts. In a letter to the Times and an Interview In the Evening Standard Sir I’ercy Scott pleaded the cauae of the submarine against the capital ship He argued that the submarine of thr future will not only use twelve and four teen-inch guns, but will be fitted with machinery for the projection of poison gas. "The use of depth bomba against sub marine* will become unsafe when (lie underwater craft are equipped with poi son gas,” argued Sir I’ercy Scott. "The destruction of a submarine would le loose the deadly gas fumes which would envelope the warship on the surface. I believe it will be possible in the future for submarines to put down a barrage of poison gas, bottling up the surface ships of a navy In the harbor, where they fRy be anchored at the time.” DESTROY HUN MONUMENT.
