Normal conditions in the United States have not yet been fully restored and are net likely to be unless extraordinary efforts are made, declared Judge El bert H. Gary, chairman of thi Unit ed States Steel Corporation and the President of the American Iron and Steel Institute at the annual meet ing of that body today. The coun try is at present suffering from the high cost of living, h declared, to which profiteering and labor dis putes, temporary relapses of the war fever, have further complicated the return to normalcy. TOUCHES O.V MANY TOPICS Judge Gary selected as his topic question of supply and demand, upon which he declared our entire economic foundation Is predicted. He couched on a wide fleid of topics -cverlng economic conditions, both at home and abroad. Judge Gary vigorously opposed the cancellation of the foreign debts owed to the United States; lauded President Harding for the conduct of h:s administration; said that the steel industry is in a healthy con dition but expressed concern over the growing labor shortage; advo cated the fullest use of publicity in all departments of economic life which affect the public and voiced the hope that a conference would be called in Washington for the frank discussion of all unsettled financial, commercial and industrial questions in which the people art interested. MAX-MADE LAWS Legislation which has been en arted to curb profiteering and high prices, Judge Gary declared, has not always succeeded and added: "There are already too many man made laws and perhaps too many at tempts to apply them which are .calculated to interrupt and hinder progress and industrial prosperity. Any statute that unnecessarily in terferes with the natural law of supply and demand works incalcul able damage to economic progress and prosperity. The fault for con tinual prosperity In a measure may be laid at our doors. If so, then let us to the best of our ability, ov ercome our faults and consistently ndopt and practice reasonable and constructive policies." Judge Gary declared the foreign debts were "voluntarily, open and fairly contracted." AC1AIXST DEBT CANCELLATION "To cancel these debts or any part of them without full payment would te forced charity and that is never agreeable to the donor and as a rule equally disagreeable to a self res pective person or nation." he declar ed. "Americans generally would not be contented with a government al action which relieved from debt the citizens of foreign nation by increasing the burdens of the form er." Judge Gary said that debtor na tions can and are willing to repay their obligations (but cannot do so at present because of unsettled con ditions. '"We should be cheerfully willing to extend payment at reasonable low rates of interest. We should be glad to make new loans wherever we are confident they will be paid and thus assist in restoration and rehabilitation. There is no 'royal doal" to success except on the lasts of reciprocity. Every man or na tion in order to measure up to ob ligations must work and save must be prudent and fair and economi cal." 'rigid EOONOMV needed Foreign debtor nations need not expect a return of fair rates of ex change except by producing and sel ling to other countries what can be utilized by the latter. When a man or nation is in debt there should te practiced at all times rigid economy and aximum industry until after the debts are paid and the equilibrim for the basis of exchanges Is re stored. It is needless to ignore the well tried law of supply and demand. It cannot be done successfully." Judge Gary warmly praised the (Continued on Page Five E tSPECIAL TO THE TIMES!

L AUTO EVENT Yesterday marked the opening of the third annual Springtime Savings Club by the Overland Fudge Com pany, local distributors for Willys Knight and Overland cars. Three years ago Mr. Fudge con ceived the idea of starting the Sav. ings Club in this territory. Since then many Inquiries have been re ceived, not only from the territory in which the original club was J started, but from all over the Unlt ! ed States and was finally copied by the Willys-Overland Co of Toledo and recommended to all their deal ers. Briefly, the Springtime Savings Club is an organization of present or prospective owners of either Over land or Willys Knight cars. By making an Initial payment of $25.00 to the club and a stipulated amount or as much as the member can spare each month, until spring time ' members have at that time accumu ) lated enough in their savings to take ! care of the initial payment on their .much longed for automobile. T!9 Club pays Beven per cent on the money Invested and is a real incen tive for many to put away money that would otherwise not be saved. The Springtime Savings Club has been highly supecssful during the past three years and has aided many people of this region of moderate moans to own an automobile. Many a man has longed for an automobile, tnit never found It quite possible to save enough In a lump sum to take care of the first payment- By Join ing this Club they pay a little as thoy are paid and by spring when the family will enjoy a week end outing or a drive into tho country on a warm evening, tho necessary money will be savod too and on hand to enable them to enjoy these pleas Hi res.

THIRD ANNUA GREAT CROWDS HEAR BEVERIDGEYESTERDAY; IN GARY TONIGHT Arrangements Made For Big Rally at the Ham mond Masonic Temple. Great crowds greeted Albert J Beveridge at Michigan City and Val paraiso yesterday and this evening the Republican candidate for sena tor will speak to a crowded house in the Orpheum theatre at Gary. Saturday he Is to address an audi ence at the Masonic Temple in Ham mond. Whether Beveridge will speak at the Riley school in Indiana Harbor at 7:30 tomorrow evening, before coming to Hammond, was not defi nitely known today, but it was thought probable that the Ind.iana Harbor meeting would be called off. With a strenuous week before him, Beveridge may find it necessary to conserve his strength. Two speeches in an evening may be more than he is able to manage, especially when they are in the same territory and the Masonic Temple at Hammond is large enough to accommodate both crowds. East Chicago and Indiana Harbor people may be compelled to come to Hammond to hear Bever idge tomorrow night. 250 SCOUTS AT HALLOWE'EN PARTY Cowboys, bandits, pirates, negroes clowns, cops, soldiers and flappers.

Oct. 27. The first public statement in support of the Ku Klux Klan since it became known that such a.n organization existed in the Calumet region, was made last evening by Evangelist D. Emmett Snyder before a large audi ence at the Church of Christ at Whiting. Since the big open air meeting which was held in Harrison Park. Hammond, several weeks ago, and which was attended by many from Whiting, much has ben heard In denunciation cf the Klan. The ap pearance of masked klansmen at the Hammond meeting for raising funds for religious education in the schools and the donation of $200 by the order has also created a furore of comment, favorable and unfav orable. But it remained for Rev. Snyder to be the first to defend the "hooded terror" from the pulpit. His sub ject last evening was "Principles of the Ku Klux Klan." Snyder said he based his state ments on what he had heard and believed to be the policies of the K. K. K. He spoke entirely on the affirmative side of the question and from the applause which he re marks drew, his audience was with him throughout the entire speech. i He touched on the Klan's demands tor 100 per cent Americanism. "There is no room In this country for such as are not willing to be come Americans," he said. He also discussed the Christian foundation of the organization; its stand for the protection of pure womanhood; Its Interest in the solv ing of local problems; Its conten tion for supremacy of the white race, and its desire to have the Bible placed in the public schools. ' As he emphasized each of these points he wag applauded with much enthusiasm by tlvs audience. It was a me3ting characteristic of Snyder fearless work as an evangelist. The series of meetings which he is conducting at the Whit ing Church of Christ will continue every evening indefinitely. The meetings start at 7:30 o'clock. CROWN POINT, Ind., Oct. 27.
