THE TIMES. II orLLiiij !r fm cr Hill ifp WtW ', P:' fe EDITORIAL sSi" W$ WSM lU V? Warning to Shoppers. 8l EKftUj n r' '"Merchants must NOT take on additional help for Christmas trade; nor ean merchants increase AMTHJ working hours." Hkvj These arc rulings of the War Industries Board. Thev are made to conserve labor, light and hr&A resentative of the Red Cross. He ea!d his interest n Indiana was aroused w-hea Governor Goodrich asked hi" to make a personal investigation and report of the condition in which he ound Indiana soldiers on the Bring line in France. Mr. Toner pointed out the wonder - il achievements of Governor C -a-. 'cn in promoting the increased . o tfuotion sid conservation of foods in Indiana. He said Governor Goodrich was the. first in the land to undertake this important work. As a result of this, he said, Indiana increased the corn acreage in 191" by 600.000 acres, the wheat acreage by 624.000 acres, and in addition thereto, planted 500. oon war gardens. Indiana, he said, has lead all the states in the increased production of pork. The speaker called attention to Governor Goodrich's order early in 1317. putting: a stop to unnecessary building; and construction. This he said, was an evidence of the Gover nor's foresight with regard to the nation-wide necessity at this time for the conservation of labor and material. Governor Goodrich, said .the speaker, was the first in the country to under take the regulation of fuel prices, and the first to insist upon a national or ganization to control production and distribution. He said the administra tion of the conscription law in Indiana has been generously praised by federal officials, and Justly so, because of the efficiency with which the law has been administered. The work of the Indiana State Coun cil of Defense, which, according- to Mr. loner, was organized to include an ''final number of members from each of the two leading political parties, was highly praised. "This is the essence of what we denominate & 'coalition' government." said Mr. Toner, "and such a govern ment is represented completely and successfully In our State Council of Defense. Incidentally. I can't fail to suggest that the thought, if adopted more generally at Washington, would inure greatly to the winning of the war." The speaker also praised the loyalty and patriotism of labor in the war. He called attention to the almost to tal absence of strikes and lockouts in Indiana, "in an era of rising prices that have effected every clement of living-." which he said, indicates an "undivided support of the war and of those charged with responsibility for its execution." Indiana was the first state to organ ize conscripted men for military train ing at iiome, and patriotic activity back cf the lines, said Mr. Toner. It load in the enlistment for war work in the Boys' Working Reserve. It was firft t organize patriotic propa ganda on an effective basis and to es tablish vocational schools for soldiers, limited and special service men. It has oversubscribed four Liberty Loans, ab sorbing more than $335,000,000 in war bonds. $50,000,000 in War Savings stamps and subscribed $2,097,000 or i more than doubled its quota to the American Red Cross. Although the cost of state government has increas ed (normously during the past two ears. said Mr. Toner, the results of economies effected by Governor Good rich in the administration of the state government is shown in the treasury balance. Mr. Toner said the- balance in tha State Treasury on September 30, ISIS, was $1,550,404 86. more than it was on September 30, 1916. at which time the democratic party was in pow er. "Of course," said the speaker, "the background of Indiana's record the state's achievement in this war consists of the high-minded, all-pervading and fixed devotion of our peo ple to the safety and perpetuity of our republican institution. Indiana is al ways right, because her people are right. Still, they had to be organized. Action was what was needed. The patriotism of our citizens, their in dividual and undivided support of our declaration of war would have been futile, but for group action made pos Indiana has been equally fortunate sible by Jnteligent leadership. Indi ana was able In the other great crisis to produce a Morton. In this crisis, in another Governor who has been wil ling and able to lead."
