MILITIA SECTtON STATE COUNCIL OF DEFENSE. THE POIICTICIII WORLD l INDIANA i Continued From r-s Ons - ! have no time to be sneaker. Just what' the answer will be remains to be seen. Arthur U. Robinson, senator from Marion county and republican floor leader in the last two sessions of the legislature, attended the officers train ing camp al Fort Benjamin Harrison. ' and this week he came out with a com mission as a first lieutenant in the na tional army. He will have leave from duty from Aug. 15 to Augr. 27. but the special session could not possibly be finished by that time, and if he has to go in active military service he cannot, of coulse. serve also as a senator at the special session. It i possible that he might obtain leave from the war department so as to enable him to at tend the special session, but no one knows whether this can be done. Without Robinson as floor leader, the republicans probably would depend on Senator Walter Gemmlll. of Marion, or Senator William M. White, of Craw fordsvilie. for floor leadership. If Rob inson serves as a senator at the spe cial session he will probably hav e to vvcarhis army officer's uniform, for, under a war department regulation ev ery soldier and officer is obliged to ap pear in uniform at all times. I Senator Aaron Wolfson, of Indian apolis, is now a member of the gov ernor's military staff, and while this po sition is purely honorary. Senator Wolf son will have the right to wear his ma jor's uniform in the senate if he wishes to do 90. Representative John B. Dilworth. of L.aporte. member of the House from La porte county, is first lieutenant and adjutant of the first battalion of the First Indiana infantry regiment, and he is already in the federal service in that I capacity. This will leave his place va-1 cant in the House. j Phil McXagney, of Columbia City, ! representative from Allen and Whit ley counties, has tendered his resigna tion to Governor Goodrich, because hfi has obtained a commission as captain in the national srmy. He also attend ed the officers' training- camp at Fort Benjamin Harrison. This w 111 leave an- j other vacancy. Dilworth is a repub- ( lican and McN'afrney is a democrat. But the republican majority In the House is so larKe. that the absence of Dilworth would not affect any action the majority might wish to take. It is not so in the Senate, however: There are twenty-five democrats rd twenty-flv republicans in the Senate, ! and if Robinson does not ait as a mem ber the democrats would be able to outvote the republicans. It is not like ly, however, that there will be much party politics displayed at the special session, for war measures will be the principal business, and party lines should and probably would not be drawn.

No photograph of tie Elgin Six can do it justice. You must see the actual car. and ride in it, to know how roomy and comfortable it is, how steadily and easily it rides. The mechanical construction is of the highest standard, from the powerful 35 h. p. six-cylinder valve-in-head motor to the smallest detail. Ride in tit once, and you will appreciate its power, speed and control. The true yacht line body, with the fashionable European center cowl, lends a beauty to Elgin design that never has been duplicated. Yet neither comfort nor ease has been sacrificed to beauty, and there is more comfort and "leg room" in the Elgin than you'd expect to find even in a larger car. . Let us tell you about the new records made by the Elgin Six on long tours, and how it has stood the most crucial tests for reliability and economy of operation.

They have begun at the foot and de creed that shoes shall not exceed sev en Inches in hcighth because- the cost of leather is ao much higher. Consid ering the looks of most Englishwo men's feet even before the war that doesn't somehow seem to upset me much. American tootsies are another mat ter indeed and here's where the shoe pinches. There's a special board in Washington that is going to regulat-. what goes on our feet and our backs and our heads this corning season that is quite as important as the board U regulate what goes into our tummies. The most noticeable type of shoe around the board itself these dav is the gum shoe for their is much shush ing and mystery stuff to cover up their deep dark plans which are on foot. They explain this secrecy by pointing out that if they made known these re forms and regulations precipitately there would be a great waste entailed because of the models that the manu facturers have already made up far in advance for the company season and of those models with which the retail ers are already stocked up. The idea is to keep all plans dark until the shoes now on hand are all on foot and then break loose with the sweeping re form. In the interim the board and shoe manufacturers and retailers are busily whispering together aud agreeing- on a few simple serviceable model shoes that will tak; the place of all the past mad riot of extravagant foot gear that has pinched our pocketbooX-: as well as our feet. This doesn't mean, of course, that there will be one plain heavy style of shoe that every one will be forced to don for all and every occasion. The board promises an adequate assortment of attractive and dainty shoes for all walks and dances of life. This same scheme applys to all the rest of our clothing and a sweeping and sensible reform will take place from our toes to our heads that will do away with the senseless waste of materials and labor just to make one frippery out-frfp another. Dainty maids and proud matron need not shudder ver the possibility of being forced into overalls, trouserette? or khaki uniforms however. In fact it is just as well to keep off the khaki togs as we need all the khaki for our honest to goodness real male sold', rs The women who, at the very first smel! of war. rushed around and got them selves fitted to regulation khaki uni forms with pants and puttees and ev erything so they could pant around in pants drilling and getting their pic tures in the Sunday supplements, ought to be suppressed. Mostly they arc. matronly mldde-aged women who should know better, and in simple an-i unobstrusive shirtwaists and skirls could do real national good with thoir surplus energy by rolling bandges.' knitting socks and sweaters. cwinc pajamas, making gardens and canning, while they can. The dress reform, the busy conscrvn ion board has in view, by no mean will dictate a uniform of any sort. They are simply getting together wi:li the designers and fabric manufacturers and dressmakers and retailers to evolve enough practical inexpensive and yet artistic models to supply a sane and conservative demand. Now for goodness sake if you are a good patriot don't go and lay in a supply of lacy lingerie, silken robes and fussy footgear against the im pending frivolous frill famine. If you do you wilt be in a class with trios'; poor sports who flew around buying up all the loone canned goods and su gar at the first hint of food conserva tion and sent the prices kiting for the rest of us. Just sit tight and dress right.
