TAYLOR (United Press Staff Correspondent ) WITH THE AMERICAN ARM IKS IN FRANCE. Oct. IS. They railed her "lodina" and she was the surgical dress ing; Queen. She was tall and extremely stout and Willi her horn-rimmed glasses she was more professional than beauti ful o look upon. "lodina" was her name in that hospital because of her i philosophy, which put in a single word was "iodine." Iodine was applicable to any wound that came her way. believed this big American nurse. It was Interesting to watch h r at her work. A man as bis as she would be big: and clumsy, his fingers would pet in the way of band ages, and he would hurt you every time he touched you. But not so with "lodina." She was as deft and gentle as the daintiest miss in the establishment, as she removed band apes, blnd-clotted and soiled, with a couple of quick clips of the scissors, airi after giving the wound a treatment of iodine if the doctor did not prescribe otherwise, wound up the wound with new yards of fresh bandages and ad hesive tape. From a surgical dressing nurse's point of view, which whs all that "lodina" ever sot from her little nook of bottles and instruments and banages In the great army hospital, the war as just one injured man after another. All day they'd come, some new ones never seen before, mostly old ones who had been about for several days. One after another she cleaned their wounds and bound them up. day in and day out. She is entitled to 2 service stripes now, though all this time she has never had a closer glimpse of the front than the endless stream of men pouring through her ward for surgical dressings, iSlie sees them come in, set well, and go back, but never pets away herself. Sttnie have come back. re woundec, for her surgical dressings. "lodina's" nemarks are few. Usually they consist of. "It looks fine today." Ton df not see anything very fine look ing about the wound, but since "lodina" does, you let ber have the joy it's about the only thrill her monotonous work has. In the midst of wounds and surgical dressings, "lodina" became real frank the other day. "Yes. I'm pretty well fed up on war," she admitted. but I can bold out as long as there are ounded men. But, say. if I ever catch the man who started this war, I'll give him something: strong er than iodine." What's more. "lodina" is Just the per son who could do it. Tel. Fast Chicago J DR. J.

Indiana Harbor has for a number of months been overrun with fakirs, mendicants and beggars who not only have solicited funds in public places from all classes of people but have been in some cases really insolent to those who have rassed by without dropping the requisite silver coins. Citizens of that end of the city hae been very much incensed at the efforts and attitude of these undesirables and sporadic efforts have been made to drive out these people that are thus making general nuisances of themselves. But the efforts have been unavailing. Every pay day especially a group of these solicitors make their appearance and it is safe to say that they have been pick ing up hundreds cf dollars with their pitiful stories. Yesterday W. .1. Murray, president of the chamber of commerce circulated a petition which was eisrned by a large number of business men and residents and addressed to the mayor and chief cf police asking that the city ordinance against practices of thi kind be regidly enforced. It is belioved that the city authorities will take drastice action t once on this matter and that police officers will be instructed to handle this matter vigorously. Till BACK AN llili OCT. 27 No Effort Will Be Made to Continue Daylight Saving Law. WASHINGTON, Oct. 19. No further effort will b made by congress to con tinue the existing daylight saving law and the hands of the clocks will be turned back an hour on October 17, as originally planned. This decision was reached at a conference between con gressional leaders and Chairman Bar uch. of the war industries board, who had recommended that the law remain in force for the period of the war. The senate recently passed a bill to continue the law in effect Indefinitely and it now is pending in the house. Senator Calder, of New York, author of the original daylight bill, said after the conference yesterday that difficul ties of the railroad administration and other government agencies in arranging schedules and anticipated difficulties in getting final action on the bill by the house contributed to the decision. The war industries board urged continuation of the law particularly because of its value in the saving of fuel. SENATE CUTS OFF S140 MILLION TAX WASHINGTON. Oct. 19. The 6 per cent differential against the undistribut ed profits of business which the House incorporated in the revenue bill was stricken out by the Senate finance com mittee yesterday. Senator Simmons, the chairman, estimated that this would cost the treasury 1140.000.000,000 in revenue. Under this change the income tax rate on corporations would be uniform at 12 per cent upon all the income, whether distributed or not. The House fixed the rate at 18 per cent on undis tributed income and 12 per cent on that portion distributed to stockholders. Business Aral list Flan. The Senate committee's action brings to an end a controversy which has been waged ever since the House voted to put this differential in the bill. Business corporations protested vigorously against the differential, contending it would be ruinous in a multitude of cases. STATE REALTY MJEETING OFF TERRE HAUTE. IND.. Oct. 19.

IS War has made the world infinitely smaller, as the following tale of remarkable reunions along tiie front shows. It is the story up to date, of three brothers, and it began back in California, where they were in college, two years ao. Several months before America en tered " the war, these brothers seized with the , desire to come to France. At that time the big possibility was the 'volunteer ambulance service, but owing to financial circumstances one brother could not come to Europe. Brother Number One then was sent along, the other two thinking they might never see him again. At the time America entered the war. Brothers Two and Three had the opportunity to come to Fiance in the same service, and started for New York to embark. There Brother Num ber Two joined the aviation service and parted from Three, the trio figur ing it was broken I.nck Is With Them. Three continued to France, where, by luck, he encountered Number One, on a permission from the French bat tlefront. It was then both One and Three were transferred into the same unit, and sent to the Balkans, to serve with the French army of the Orient. They served there until their unit was recalled, wondering all the time if they would ever see Brother Num ber Two, the aviator, whom they knew to be in England somewhere, through the single letter which reach ed them. Crossing Macedonia, Greece and the Mediterranean, Brothers One and Three arrived in Italy, where a Frenchman at the desolate army post where troops embark from trains to boats and vice versa handed one of them a telegram. It was from the aviator brother, who was at a little Italian, tow n on the road to Rome, through which their train passed en route to France. He was In an avia tion school. The train stripped 40 minutes in the Italian town, time enough for Broth ers- ne and Thr to find Two. and to R' t permission for him ti ride to Rome with them, returning the next day alone. It was the first re-union of the league" as they called it. Before the train reached Re me, wrecks stop ped it, and in a muddy, wet little Ital ian town. Number Two had to leave at midnight. They parted, not expect ing to gi-l together in wartime. Trail Crosses Acjiln. In France, Number One wa? sr.t to a training school, and Number Thre was assigned to w-ork in a Paris bu reau.
