The Gary Post, one of the two steel grey wolf newspapers in Gary, which attacked Mr. Geist'a utilities companies in Hammond and East Chi cago, now admits in answer to THE TIMES' charges that Mr- Geist only asks the people of Hammond $52.50 for an arc light whereas the Gary Heat, Light and Water company of the steel corporation makes the people of Gary pay $75 a year, that it does "not know what fair charges are in Gary." "Why doesn't it? If the Post does not know what fair charges are in Gary, how does it know 80 much about utility companies elsewhere and has nothing to say about the Wall street corfcern in its own town? , Of course, it would no: dare to say anything about charges in Gary One would think that the steel trust management would give its em ployes, who represent the greater part of the population of Gary, lower electric light rates than elsewhere- Normally it should because the elec tricity it sells at Gary is a fraction of one per cent of the total current, gen crated in the monster Gary steel paint and it is said to be the cheapest produced in the world. Yet the magnates must have nine cent3 a k. w. hour for current, stated to be the highest rate in America when the rela tion of the cost of production and price of selling is considered. And not only this the city of Gary must pay $22.50 more a year for each of its hun dreds of arc lights than does the city of Hammond, which gets its elec tricity from a small plant. And so well does the Gary Heat, Light and Water company' fatten off the city that this year it is getting $70,000 from the city treasury for lights and water, and last year its income from its patrons was a quarter of a million dollars more than its capital stock. About the first duty of the city of Gary is to take steps at once to get a rate that is at least equal to Hammond's in the matter of arc lights There is r.o reason why Wall street should get exorbitant prices from the city of Gary when Hammond does not have to pay them- As it i3 the steel workers of Gary have enough rents, taxes and assessments to pay without having to contribute extra money from their hard earned wages to fatten this tight-fisted spawn of war-profiting. INFLUENCE OF EDUCATION ON BUSINESS MORALS. The otter day we discussed what John Dewey thinks of the near future in this changing world of ours. Dewey foresees the results of the changes in business standards, women taking men's places, and how men, coming back from the trenches, will no longer stand for a raw deal from big busi ness. Dewey also points out( that from now on the tendency will be to make goods for use, not for sale, and that means a different story as to prices. John Dewey is professor of education at Columbia university. One of his books concerns the Gary schools. Now Dewey's theory of education la that the child be trained to function in the society in which it is to live. What ideas of morality it gets the child will later bring into the business world, and thus in a few generations the whole of society may be changed What Dewey sees in the Wirt plan at Gary is a reflection of some of his own ideas in actual operation- Wirt is trying to train the child so that It will function in the society it is to enter when it grows up- One would think that at first glance the Gary child is being educa'ed to be a steel worker, since it is presumed that he will later enter the steel busi ness in his own town. Bur. the philosophy of the Gary system has a deeper aspect. It also takes in Dewey's theory that th child should be taught cer tain conceptions of morality. Thus the Gary child should enter into its adult life with some technical skill, but what's more important, with ideas of business morality quite different than they are today. Presuming that this holds true and the Gary child later on comes into high officership in the industrial world, there should be an elimination of tthe unmoral aspects that mark the conduct of certain captains of industry in America. Perhaps Dewey may live to see this carried out. THE TAIL TRIES TO WAG THE DOG. "We, the representatives of a vast majority of the people of Indiana," met in a small room at ; he state house yesterday and adopted a resolution demanding that Governor Goodrich call a special session of the legislature for the purpose of providing a special election on the questio.i of holding a constitutional convention. It would be interesting to know whore this "vast majority of the people of Indiana" who are so keenly desirous of a consti tu'ional election at this time are located. The Fort Wayne News is free to say that it knows of not over three or four persons in that community want such a convention now and it knows of hundreds that vigorously A ' ' IT Is extremely difficult when we, in our artless manner, are endeavor ins to explain TO company the d fference between the barrage nrp on the Chemin De IaT.ps and that of the Zbrocz-Dniester sector TO havo the wiff and some lady get into a heated discussion AS to the best way to pinch out blackheads. WE were not invited to Kaiser Bill's great war council but we know Just as well A3 if we were there that nothing was .aid about JOHN A. LAPP and the constitu tional CONVENTION'. AFTKK looking around US with the perspicuity for which we are noted WE think that a patriot la a man who does all he can tor his country WITHOUT expecting the other fel low to do MORE than he can. OLD Dor Evans is giving people ad vice who want to go into the chicken business OUR young men around here NEVER seem to need any.' THE men will continue to rmon trate and legislate BUT the women will continue. to wear Juf,t as few clothes as they feel like wearing. ABOUT the only ambition an ENERGETIC editor will have when this war is ever WILL be to get in a hospital for a good I,ON(; rest. WE find ou -selves agreeing perfectly with the new federal shipping board head WHO says that "conversation builds no ships."

THE Crown Trince seems to be the Ed Dunkhorst of the German army. A BELOVED correspondent thinks we are too hard on the ladies and WONDERS if we have softening of the brain ZOWIE! S;t still my heart, sit still. oppose it. Moreover, there is a similar condition existing elsewhere over the state if its information is at ail correct. Despite the noise made by the rattling of a few loose nuts there is no demand for a convention and, indeed, it is safe to say that by far the greater number of those who earnestly f iv ored such a thing six months ago are now anxious' to have the matter post poned until after the war. Their common sense tells them that while this struggle endures the public mind will be unable to adjust itself to anything else and that any constitution framed at this time would be entirely out of harmony with our state's best thought. It is sale to say that Governor Goodrich will not permit himself to be influenced by the bogus representa tions of the handful of radicals, notoriety seeker- ard special interests' rep resenta'ives who are endeavoring to palm their foolish chatter off as the va-.ce of the state, and we need expect no special session called for such a purpose as that named- Even should such a calamity be forced, however, there is little or no danger that the members of the assembly would act as requested. For before they went into session they would hear in no uncer tain tones from their constituents. This is no time to waste a million dol lars producing something people would reject when offered to them, and we heartily agree with the Fort Wayne News, which says so- SINCE Wall street is so anxious to get rid of t'e mayor of Gary, why doesn't it turn the job over to some one with brains? First they set the "civic service" commission after Mr- Johnson, and then they shouted for the grand jury to indict him. These things failing, the latest attack is a gas bomb under the guise of the "committee of fifteen."

By Anabel Worthington. 1 1 i i I 4 v-r irPl h . One finds many occasions when a simple but smart dress is a very desirable addi tion to the wardrobe. The design shown in No. S3i51 has a number cf the latest style features, the most prominent one being the fitted waist which gives a sug gestion of tb popular basque effect. The tddes of the waist are fitted into the figure and the dec; points over the hips give a graceful siihouette. The right front crosses well over on the left side in sur plice effect, and the front is gathered at the waistline with just enough fulness to make it becoming. A pretty piece of rib bon may be used to form the crushed girdle which only shows at the front and is emphasized by rows of tiny buttons on the side sections. The sleeves are per haps the most interesting part of the whole dress, for they are quite unique and very graceful. Th-?y are cut in deep points nt front and back, and they button onto a ticht-fittin? under sleeve. The two-gored skirt is gathered at the regulation waiM line. The pattern is cut in sizes o4 to 42 inches bust measure. The SO inch size re quires yards 3t5 inch material. yard SO inch contrasting goods. To obtain this pattern seud 10 cents to the office of this publication. VETEY DINKoneer Up, retey, Maybe the Next Lobster Will be a Bigger One BV GEO. MARTIN. (United! Press Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, Aug. 6. In this ar ticle we outline some of Uncle Sum's ideas on drving methods for various prod'-cts. In drying sweet corn, select very tender, young corn und prepare it risht after gathering. Cook in hoiling nit-r two to five minutes, cut kernels from cob v. 1th sharp knife, riot cutting b:!s of the cob. Spread thinly on trays and place to iiry. Stir it occasionally till dty.

The set, hat, neck piece, muff and bag, match perfectly and are all made of Persian satin, giving; it the oriental touch, and trimmed with seal strippings on the edjes of each piece. The lining is of gold. through the s'.icer. Very young, tender I beans will dry whole. Cut your beans! rather than snap them. Thread them into necklaces or coarse, strong thread! and hang over stove or in the sun. Dry j young beans two hours, older ones three H hours. Wax beans are dried in (he sime ' manner. Condition them as you do corn, j For lima beans, take them from the' pods, rmove surface moisture and dry! from three to three and one half hours. This same method answers for other beans. It also includes cow peas or other field peas. Dry young tender okra. pods whole. Older pods should be cut imo hn'.f huh slices. These may be strung as with string beans and hung over the. stove. Tf so dried, heat in oven before hanging up. Peppers may be dried by splitting one one side, removing seed, drying in the air and finishing the drying in the drier at 140 K. A more satisfactory plan is to place peppers in biscuit pan in oven and beat untl skin blisters, or steam until skin softens, then take out seed and dry at 110 to 140 F. Fur beats and turnips, select young. ' tender, quickly grown ones. Wash. peel. ' f. slice about one eighth inch thick and 1 dry. Slice carrots lengthwise, avoiding those with large, woody cores. Par kohlrabbi. celeriac and salsify are led the same. Select mature onions, remove papery covering, cut off tops and roots, s into one eighth inch pieces and dry to avoid discoloration. Leeks are so handled also. Select well reveloed cab Dage, remove loose leaves, split cab bage, remove woody core, slice with kraut slicer and dry. All of these pro ducts sould be conditioned. For spinach, remove leaves from roots, wash carefully, slice and' spread on trays and dry. Treet parsley the same way. For beat tops, Swiss chard and celery should be in condition edible as greens. Wash carefully, cut hoth leaf stalks and blade into one fourth inch sections, spread and dry. Choose young succulent rhubarb. Don't use the leaf blade. Prepai-e as for stewing, by skin ning and cutting one fourth to one half inch lengths. Select sound, well natured Irish po tatoes', wash and boil or steam until nearly done. : el and pass through meat grinder. Collect the shreds in layers on trays and dry until brittle. If toast ed slightly in over when dry the flavor is improved. Or you may boil, slice and dry. Handle, sweet potatoes the same way, or boil and slice. Clean cauliflower., divide Into small bunches, blanch six minutes, and dry two to three minutes. Don't worry if it turns dark in drying. Handle brussell? sprouts the same way, but add a pinch of soda to the blanching water. For pumpkins and squash, select sound, grown specimens. Cut into strings, re move all seeds and softness around them. Cut strips into pieces and dry. be sure to condition all these things. Celery tops, parsley, mint, sage and I herbs need not be blanched, but should Glasses Pay in dollars and cents, time and comfort.

These instructions apply also t pears and quinces. Peel. core, trim and slice one-fourth inch thick. Dip in weak salt water containing a teaspoonful of salt to one gallon water. Spread on trays and dry till tough and leathery. Sort out imperfect raspberries, spread selected berries on trays and dry. Not so dry they rattle. Stop drying when berries don't stain the hand when pressed. This applies to blackberries, huckleberries and dewberries. peaches are dried better when peeled. Remove stones, cut fruit in half or smaller and spread on trays, pit sides nr. Turn over later. Plums and apricots are not peeled, but are pitted and halved and dried as are peaches. Select medium ripe plums. Small, thin flesh varieties are not suit- able. For cherries, remove stems and. if fruit is large, also pits. Spread on trays and dry.
