GOOD FOR MR. LARSON.
TVe never met George Larson of Hammond until fie,
without any ceremony, obtruded his personality in the
limelight the othr day and quietly got out of it again.
We never even heard of him.
But we ar strong for Mr. Larson and would like to
tell hint bo. Just what happened is this:
One of those Windy City Smart Alecks the pood
Jjcrd only knows how we in th? Calumet region are
pestered and annoyed in one way and another with those
fresh Alecks from Chicaeo came out to Hammond with
a neat, nervy little scheme to give Rway real estate. The
police report it as a sharp pa me. The Chicago fox went
to the home of Mr. Larson and intimated with zeal that
five or ten dollars from the Hammond man would he
welcome, but Mr. Larson promptly knocked him down
etalrs and then waltzed him to the police station-

The insurance affords protection for disability or
death resulting from war perils and provides for com

American cantata's wife has been recnivin;; a monthly
check for $337. ."0 since her husband was captured by tho
Germans.
A man may now enlist in the merchant -marine serv

detention in prison his dependents and loved ones will be

THE" CAMPAIGN ABOUT TO BEGIN-
Joseph D. Oliver, the South Bend manufacturer, ""-ho
is state director of the War Thrift Savings campaign in
Indiana, said in a speech,:
"There is no question about it. Gentle
man, bit wo Americans, have got to bear th3
burden of this fiht from now on. We can
lake care of our own boys very well and not
feel-it; but we've pot to support our allies,
loo, from now on. I thank God our bos can
po over there anil have for their jjuidance
the experience of those men who have had
three and one half years of experience.
"It's poins; to take money, much more
than we now know. The folks in Vashinc
ton know things that we do not know and
ought not to know. I am satisfied they are
doing what 1hey can to meet this problem.
This Is not the time to criticize. We're all
pood Americans and nm Ft take our orders
like Americans.
"Thank God I have no business that is
more important than helping to win this
war. My time is at th government's, dis
posal and if it wants money, rny God' they
can have mine as Ions as I've got any to
give.'
Teople of this locality will be wise to take these
words to their hearts. The great drive for the sale of
War Thrift Savings Stamps Is about to begin. Gary is
requested to sell one million dollars worth, East Chicaeo
L- required to sell peven hundred thousand dollars worth,
Hammond is required to sell six hundred thousand dol
lars worth, and Whiting thre hundred thousand dollars
worth.
It will make thincs much easier if our people note
the word "REQUIRED." The stamps have to be sold

"Both coal producers and retailer? re

In other words, the public -has done or is doing its
part, as requested by the fuel administration. It i? put
ting in its orders for coal with a promptness never before
equalled. Realizing the menace of a repetition of last
winter's experience, consumers everywhere are trying to
forestall it. But the coal la not in sight.
What is the matter? The fuel administration com
plains of a shortage of cars and labor unrest at the
mines. The public cannot, judge vry well Just whee the
fault lies. But it understands that coal is not moving as
it should, and it. demands an improvement. If Dr. Gar

HOW ARE THE MIGHTY FALLEN.
Thf business men of the country heaved a tremend
ous sigh of relief when Champ Clark declined to take
the Missouri senatorship not because they did not want,
to see the speaker in the senate, but because his transla
tion would mean that Claude Kitchin would booome
speaker and that Mr. P.ainey of Illinois would succeed
Kitchin as chairman of the ways and means committee.
Of all the members of that committee on its democratic
suie -nno nave exniDited animosity to the business in-!
teres; s of the country, Rainey has been the most inexor
able. In the course of hearings which the committee has
taken while h has been upon it, he has never failed to
show his antagonism to the just requests of honst busi
ness men by an overbearing manner which has frequent
ly descended to downright rudeness. He is a type of that
kind of man who, put upon horseback, proceeds to ride to
the devil. Had he ever reached the chairmanship of the
ways and means committee the motto over the door of
the committee room would have been like that which is
said to be inscribed over the portals of the infernal re
gions: Abandon hope all ye (business men) who enter
hre.
