North Township Cities To
Discuss J oint Sanitary
Official represntatlves of Hammond.
Last Chicago and Whiting together
with representatives of the commercial
organizations of the three cities and
some interested citizens will meet to
night at the Last Chicago ciy hall for
discussion of he sanitary district which
has bean under consideration for the
past few years.
The question of a sanitary district
has been revived by citizens ef Ham
mond who believe that the time is now
opportune for some action and that the
cities should decide at this time wheth
er there should be individual or con
certed action. Hammond and Whit
ing seem to favor concerted action,
while East Chicago is inclined toward
a purification system of its own,'
The sanitary district question came
before the East Chicago Chamber of
Commerce a few weeks ago ar.d upon
recommendation of a committee ap
pointed to look into the matter it was
decided to recommend tc the city au
thorities that East Chicago refuse to
co-operate with Hammond or Whuing
and establish a sewerage disposal
nlant of its own. The matter has
never been presented to the city coun-
cil by the Chamber
it is believed that
of Commerce but
the council hold
the same ODinlon as that held bv the I
Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber
of Commerce decided that an Individ
ual plant would be cheaper for the
citizens of East Chicago and erjually
as satisfactory as a sanitary district.
Tteports of the committee of engin
eers of Hammond. East Chicago, Whit
ing and Gary will be submitted at the
meeting tonight and a thorough in
vestlgation and discussion will follow.
Postal employes of Hammond will
decide tonight whether they will cm
brace the new overall fad which at
present Is spreading to all parts of the
country. A ruling issued this week
by the Assistant Postmaster Generals
grants employes the privilege in dis
carding the regplar postman's uniform
for gray overalls if the men asr a body
Hammond postman have been having
much difficulty in obtaining uniforms
of late. Prices for clothing have
soared while postmen's, salaries have
remained stationary. For this reason
many manufacturers declare they can
not put out a respectable looking uni
form at a price which wo-uld appeal to
a postman. Some companies have dis
continued making uniforms.
At the meeting this evening Ham
mond postal employes will talk it over
