MENAGERIE IS FEATURE OF THE BIG CIRCUS On of the things in which the Ha-ffenbeck-Wallace Circus has been ex- (Contlnued from page one ) Hammond's urgent claims for emergency relief City Had to Have Homes. , Going back to the inception of the project; the fact became apparent many months ago that if Hammond was go ing to get any benefit out of the war prosperity that was expected to result from the placing of a $ 100, Of 0.000 or dnance order with the Standard Steel Car Co. it would have to build houses'. Hammond had reached the point where every house was occuriod and where projects were being evolved for taking its workers to Chicago in order to supply the housing: deficiency. This meant a dead loss to the city as many men would enter and leave the east gate to the Standard day after day. by special train on the Nickel Plate, wrh out ever seeing Hammond. The chamber of commerce had mad'? more or less futile efforts to arouse the business men of the city to the need of more houses. There were enthusiastic public meetings but all it served to do was to stimulate the men who have been building homes in Hammond as a matter of business. The Idea that every business man was to build at least one home did not materialise. The idea of stimulating subscriptions t: the build ing and loan associations did not hfln because builders wanted maximum straight loans. Then the idea was suggested that the g-overnmem alone was the agencv through which money could be loaned at a low rate of interest and on the lib eral basis of 75 per cent of the rotal cost of the building. About this time a bill appropriating JSO.OoO.OOO for this purpose was introduced m congress. At first it seemed as though lr would be a useless effort for Hammond to go out after a portion of this money. The prediction was freely made by skeptics that Hammond would never get any oT ihe. fund if it was made available. About this tim Roscoee E. Woo Is proposed a written program for stimu lating house building at a public meet ting of the housing committee of the chamber of commerce. This was after wards presented at the weekiy luncheon of the members' courcil and adopted. At that time Mr. Woods was made a member of the housing committee. As chairman of the housing commit tee William J Whinery deserves a great deal of credit for his painstaking work in compiling- facts regarding Haiti housing needs. Mr. "Whinery went to Washington in the. interests of Ham mond's claims for recognition and paid his own expenses. It was Mr. Whinery who succeled in first Interesting Congressman Will R. Wood in Hammond's case and it shou'd b? said to the credit of the Tenth district congressman that he was untiring in his efforts and effici ent in his methods In his efforts to secure a portion of the appropriation. Subsequent to Mr. Whinery "s visit to Washington it was decided on Congress man Wood's recommendation, that the cities of Hammond. Gary. East Chi- cago and biting- should present 'heir claims for recognition jointly and trust to the wisdom of whoever should be se lected to apportion these funds to make a fair apportionment as between the cities of the region. Although Hammond was the first of these cities to hear that it had been granted recognition it is expected that the other cities will hear in due linn; and that both Gary and East Chicago win get liberal apportionments. Following the preparation of the joint report of the housing committees of the various cities of the region Wil liam A. McIIie. president of the Lake Copnty Printing & Publishing- Co., which publishes the l.ake County Times, and vice president of the Hammond Realty Co. decided that the needs of the region was so great along- the line of additional housing- facilities that he would go to Washington to see what could be done. He was accompanied by w. J. Hast ings, who also had given the matter a great deal of study. Together they se cured an audience with Congressman Wood, Senators Watson and New and finailv had an hour's conference with Secretary of Commerce and Labor Wil son, who expected to hae charge of the distribution of the funds. While they were, there the housing report of joint committee was received and Secretary Wilson manifested con siderable Interest in it and asked many questions concerning the reffion and its needs. Since that time there have been nu- j mercTtis riucbts for supplementary re ports on such angles as transportation, j banking facilities and the activities of I building and loan associations, j Then followed a number of Investi gations on the port of th? government. First Mr. La'r'ar;;-1 was sent out ro J check up cn the data which had been I presented for consideration. Ho was taken in charge by the housing com mittee in each of the o-.tk-s he vis- j ited and given every facility for J.--a.rn ing the conditions. Major Gardner E. WeT.s made an in- 1 vesication of the transportation fari'- Hies preliminary to a subsequent and more complete survey to be made hv ex- I perienced engineers. The most r(ont survey of the re gion has been made from another angle, that of Improving transportation facil ities. This is in charge of E. A. Ti:r Pin and 11. C. Choate of the A. L. Drum Co., consulti'isr engineers. It is hoped that this survey will result in govern ment aid in the financing; of important strett railway exteii5--!'ns. principally on Calumet and Columbia avenues, where the territory is rapidly building up and additior.il transportation fa cilities are badly nr oded.
