LAWYER DPENSBATTLE Says Government Has No Case Against Indicted I. W. W. Leaders. Chicago, I1L, Oct. 3. Whether an organization can go on strike during war time and whether members of organizations can stay on a strike when that strike was initiated be fore the war started, are the two paramount issues between the United States government and the 166 in dicted members of the I. W. W., ac cording to Otto Christensen. attorney for the organization. He is in Chi cago investigating charges against the I. W. W. and preparing for the legal battle which will open soon. Sweeping denial of each of the charges named in the indictment was made by Christensen. May Charge Will Fall. "The government charges cannot stand up." he declared. "The L W. W. at no time has taken a positive po sition in regard to the war. Some of the strikes we are charged with starting to embarrass the govern ment' were started before the war be gan. As to our alleged attempt to fight conscription, I refer federal agents to the large number of I. W. W. members who are now in the vari ous cantonments. "The charge that German money has been backing the organization is ridiculous. Mr. Christensen admitted strenuous efforts are being made to obtain bonds for some of the leaders. He declared it would be impossible to se cure a total of $1,625,000 which would secure release of all under indict ment, but intimated some of the members now in Jail would be re leased on bail.

The Ger man advance of 320.004,004 to the re. cent government of king Constantine was a financial transaction quite oat of the ordinary, as now developed under the fierce scrutiny of the Ven izelos government which displaced the Constantine regime. As summed up hy It. Venizelos himself, the peculiar features were: While a huge sum was involved, yet no real money passed from Berlin to Athens, as It was all a credit tran saction to be settled "after the war." Also, although no money passed. Greece finds herself obligated for this J2fl,eO0,0C, and is paying inter, est on it at 6 per cent. Finally, as stated by Teniaelos.

The German advance was made about a year ago, at the time the Constantine ministry needed funds to pay the army vhich had been mo bollzed. For some reason, however, it was decided to make it a secret tran saction, and not Inscribe it in the budget or report it to parliament along with other loans. This was about the time the entente allies pre. sented an ultimatum demanding the demobilisation of the Greek army, which probably accounts for the loan being kept secret. Was Merely a Credit. In laying before parliament details of the affair. X. Venizelos said that Germany had in effect said: "In these critical times, we cannot advance actual money. But you can order your government bank to print JJO, 00.000 of bank notes, and we will order our bank to open a credit for 320,000,000. payable not today but at the end of the war." This was actually carried oat. Mr. Venizelos explained, the printing pres. ses of Athens turning out the $20, 000,000 in bills, based on the Berlin deposit, but without any transfer of money.

Catch Monkeys With Real "Gumshoes" Washington, T. C, Oct S. In tropical countries the natives have many unique ways of catch ing monkeys. One of them, as explained by a traveler, is this: The hunters walk about in short boots in sight of the monkeys. Then they take the boots off. place some gum In the bottoms and leave them on the ground, withdrawing themselves to a great distance. Presently the monkevs come down from the trees and try on the boots, and when the hunters come after them the boots stick to the feet of the monkeys, and they are unable to climb.

A remarkable thing about shell shock cases is that none occur during a bat tle. The reason for this is plain. In battle the men are buoyed up by the great excitement, are pressing for ward and often engaged in hand to hand fighting, while all about them is the continual roar of battle. They often become absolutely oblivious of exploding shells under these circum stances until actually hit. "When Shell Shock Comes, Shell shock comes when the men are compelled to sit in trenches for long periods or when they are out on nerve testing patrol duty between the fighting lines at night and a big mis. sile bursts unexpectedly over them. Much Like Temporary Insnnlly. The treatment of shell cases is often closely akin to that for temporary in sanity.
