EYES " STEEL OFFICIALS It Is said that members cf the Gary chapter. W. C. T. U., may soon send a committee to steel officials in Gary and Chicago to demand a straight out and out expression of their opinion on the booie question. Some of the members have noted that one of the newspapers In Gary, said to be con trolled by the steel gang, has been assailing Mayor Johnson by running fake storie to the effect that the union Is criticising his candidacy. Steel, neer and Reform. The women have noted that the same steel officials who lease out steel corporation property for the largest saloon in Indiana opposite the steel mill gate are either themselves or through their hirelings identified with the several "moral reform" waves sweeping over Gary. Linking of re form and the maintenance of the greatest saloon in Indiana at the main gate of th- greatest steel plant in the United States is said to puzzle the good women. Besides they note that th "reform" newspaper, the Post, has among its owners a prominent Fort Wayne brewer. And Fort Weyn pro duces the beer that is sold in the Steel Trust site saloons In Gary, held in the name of the Gary Land company. GARY COUNCIL TO TAKE UP BUDGET The Gary council tonight will con sider the 1H budget. It probably will take a couple of evenings to get into shape. The aldermen didn't meet last night as Company F was engaged in its farewells and they wanted to take part in the proceedings. Gary will have to fix salaries that will be on the second class ba3is. so the budget will be much larger. WANT JUDGE DUNN AS GUARD CAPTAIN It is probable that City Judge William M. Dunn, a Spanish-American war vet eran, will be asked, to take the cap taincy of the Gary home guards. Judge Dunn, despite his m mllltory experience enlisted as a private. The judge is now brushing up on drill regulation changes, and will soon be Qualified to serve as an instructor. The mere fact that one has been a drill master or has gone through a few weeks' training does not make hie com petent to become an officer. It Is the governor's wish that mature men. those who have been under fire rather than text-book strategists become officers. For this reason Judge Dunn has. been suggested. CAPT. TOM CUTLER DONS HIS UNIFORM Capt. Thomas Cutler. Engineer Offi cers' Reserve corps, who "is soon to leave Gary for Fort Leavenworth for training, received his uniform yester day, and wore it for the first time last night. He was seen in Broadway with his wife and children. Mrs. Cutler was very proud of her captain and the chil dren had admiring glances for their daddy. , Capt. Cutler is among those who Is sacrificing a good business to serve his country. Like his former partner, Capt. A. P. Melton, now jn France, the offi cer was one of the four engineers who laid out the city of Gary. CO. F. THANKS GARY. Gary, Ind.. August 21. To the Citizens of Gary: F Company, First Indiana Infantry, wishes to express its thanks for .the loyal backing you have given us.

We will try to do our duty so that we will honor the name of Gary. F CO.. 1ST INDIANA, Thomas P. Riley. Capt. Commanding. PORK CHOPS 50 CENTS? PASS US THE HOMINY! CHICAGO, Aug. 21. Pork chops soon will be 50 cents a pound retail. Ham and bacon will be even higher. Meat generally is going up. Herbert Hoover's fear of a "world meat famine" la not overestimated. These were the conclusions drawn for the Vntted Press today by Robert Miller, president of the Chicago Retail Grocers' association, from Hoover's report on meat conditions.

If these men were removed from their homes and forced to rebuild their business, it is considered an injustice. Provost Marshal General Crowder to day ordered. the first 30 per cent of the draft force will entrain for training September 5, as scheduled, but the sec ond and third increments will not be called from their homes until September 19 and October 3. instead of September 15 and 25, as previously scheduled. Writ Is Denied. In denying a writ of habeas corpus to Albert Jones and John Story of Rich mond County, Georgia, under arrest fur trying to evade the draft law, Judge Speer of the United States District Court, held Congress has power under the constitution to summon for military service, at home or abroad, every citizen of the United States. The judge found arainst the conten tion which has had widespread propa gandist circulation that it is unconsti tutional to send drafted armies to for eign soil. A United States court has no power to declare an act of Congress invalid, because it is inimicable to the common law, he ruled. WHITING POLICE ARE VERY ACTIVE (Special to The Times.) WHITING. IND..
