The city council authorized the election nftcr It was explained that it could not be hooked up with the recent judicial election because of legal technicalities. This issue was raised by Aid. Joseph Breclaw, who said he did not understand why the two elec tions could not have been combined. City Attorney Frank Cowing said the law is so ambiguous on this point that if the two had been combined, either or both would have been under a legal cloud. Under the council's authorization, Mh ward voters will go to the polls in three precinct voting places. The Sept. 25 date was selected, according to Aid. Taiil Probst, the lono councilman of the Sth ward now, in order to allow candidates plenty of time to file their petitions with the city clerk. Probst and City Clerk Steve Macicjewski were authorized to compile a new list of poling place officials for the council's consideration. uled for September, with the cars being built at the company's Michigan City freight ear plant. While Trautman and other company officials would not conjecture the future possibilities of the new war order, Hammond Chamber of Commerce officials were jubilant. They saw in the reconversion the fact that the Hammond plant, after the end of the war, would be equipped for interior and finishing work on the new de luxe railway-cars which Pullman-Standard recently announced as its post war production schedule. The 1,200 new triple-deck troop sleepers were ordered by the defense plants corporation and are designed to speed the redeployment of troops from the European to the F'ar Eastern war zones as well a.s to handle the enormous traffic load railways will bear at the end of the war with return of wide-flung army, navy, marine and coastguard units over a period of! many months. Other buildings at the Pullman- Standard Hammond plant will continue in present war production schedules, Trautman said. The firm has been engaged in manufacture of artillery carriages and also manufactured tanks and other war equipment. The tank cotract was cut back some months ago.

The powder may finally appear on the market some months hence after the experimental agencies get enough of it for their purposes, the WFB said. So far, military and essential public health and experimental needs are taking all that i available. The Insecticide is death to all bugs.

And every Find Gestapo List Of Spies FRANKFURT (U.P.) public safety officials have found thousands of Gestapo records of spies and informers who worked for Germany, it was learned yesterday. An official said there would bo "startling" surprises when some of the names, already identified, are released. The public safety operatives, under Capt. Rudolph Vasalle. Chicago, also raided German banks and acquired financial records showing to whom and for what purpose the Gestapo, the SS and other Nazi organizations paid out money. . Vasalle has a staff of 40 people burrowing through the records, which were found in a hideaway that showed evidence it already had been reached frantically, as though persons who knew names among the spies and informers had threshed through seeking their cards. it will proceed with the task of drafting a zoning ordinance for the council's consideration. Aid. Joseph Breclaw requested that tn council be invited to all commission meetings and this was incorporated in the resolution. Stran.ky Retained The council retained Atty. Franklin J. Stransky of Chicago to represent the city in the suit which the Reconstruction Finance corporation filed against the municipality some time ago for proration of special assessment bonds. The suit was referred by the U. S. appellate court to a lower court last week for revision ef interest requirements. The council also passed the 1945-46 levy ordinance of $40,363, ocver-ing appropriations for garbage collections, special assessments, fire and police pension funds and other city activities. Regarding the proposal to dispose of foreclosed property on tax liens, the finance committee headed by Aid, George McCarthy asked for more time to prepare the resolution. The council extended the issue to the next meeting. E. Schwartz and company of Chicago submitted the only bid for auditing the city's records for the 15-month period ending April 31. Its bid of $1,200 was accepted. The council authorized City Clerk Steve Maciejewski to prepare a statement of the city's financial condition for the mayor within the American, next 10 days. The mayor, in turn, is to submit the statement to the council. contact with the resistance forces1 in France, he said, but admitted the Vichy regime set up courts martial to deal with the members of the French Maquis after he found himself unable to persuade (Continued on Page Two) Firing Squad Executes 'Traitor Of Stuttgart9 PARIS (INS Paul Ferdonnet. the "traitor of Stuttgart," was executed by a firing squad early Saturday in Fort De Chatillon. Ferdonnet broadcast Nazi propaganda for the Nazis from their Stuttgart radio even before the capitulation of France in 1940. He was tried in a Paris court last month and condemned to death. U. S. Sab Snook Believed Lost WASHINGTON U.P.) The 1.525-ton U. S. submarine Snook is overdue from patrol and presumed lost, the navy announced Saturday. The vessel presumably was lost in far eastern waters, where American undersea craft have been searching for remnants of the Japanese navy and supply fleet Skippered by Comdr. John F. Walling of 19 Brant Point road, Nantucket, Mass., the. submarine had a war-time complement of about 90 men. The next of kin of officers and men have been informed. The Snook was built at the Portsmouth, N. H- navy yard and com missioned Oct 24. 1942. She was about 311 feet long. Walling, who is listed as missing in action with the rest of the crew, was graduated from the naval academy in 1935 and has served in submarines for most of his naval career. Loss of this submarine brings to 328 the number of naval vessels lost in this war. It was the 46th sub lost form all causes. Hammond Vet Bureau Opens Monday Morn Organized to aid returning service folk in their post-war adjustments, the Hammond Veterans' bureau, sponsored by the United Veterans' Service council,, will open tomorrow morning in Room 506 of the Lloyd building, Hohman avenue and Russell street, Hammond. This was announced last night by Eugene Lathe, chairman of the council's executive committee. The council sponsoring estab lishment of the bureau is composed of representatives of 16 service men's crganizations in the city, headed by E. W. Johnson, Hammond attorney, who is expected to return from a business trip in time to open the new quarters tomorrow. Johnson, a World war I veteran, will serve as full-time councilor of the agency. He will be assisted by a secretary. Plans for the opening of a vet erans' information center in ine lobby of the Hammond building will be discussed soon at a con ference with James S. DeLaurier publisher of The Hammond Times. The council also is considering the appointment of a citizens' advisory committee to assist in con ducting the agency. Representative business, industrial and professional men have" been consulted in this regard. Lathe announced tentative plans are afoot for an "open house" gathering when the public will be invited to visit the agency's offices. service fivan received here goes away with a pleasant memory in his mind that boils down to two words of description Hammond hospitality. Jack Thompson and his Lions club salvage committee will meet tomorrow in the office of the publisher of The Hammond Times to complete plans for a paper collection which, if Hammondites cooperate, will be the biggest ever staged in the city. Besides providing entertainment for service men, paper contributors will take a direct part in aiding the war effort for every scrap of paper donated will go to the manu facture of cartons to ship vitally needed war material to the Pacific. Drivers will begin their round early Sunday morning, Aug. 19, which leaves householders exactly two weeks to gather all the waste paper they can find, tie it securely. place it on their curbs and realize they are helping to entertain every service man visiting the USO's center. Under Indiana law, park boards must consists of four members, two of politically opposed parties, while every member must be a realty freeholder. The reorganized park board now consists of Richard McClaughry, president. Democrat; Irving Chay-ken. Democrat! Claude Johnson, Republican, and Highland. The board was long under legal fire after Malo, who identified himself on his appointment as a Republican, later admitted he voted the Democratic ticket in primaries. Cecil Rock, a former park commissioner, also was attacked on the grounds he was not a freeholder. Rock subsequently resigned and was succeeded by Johnson. A taxpayers' petition in. Ham mond superior court urged Mayor Smith be ordered to dissolve the entire board and appoint a new one. Judge Harold L. Strickland sustained a demurrer by City At torney Harry Stilley and threw the case out. Attorney Straley Thorpe, representing the protesting taxpayers, prepared to file an appeal to the Indiana superme court Thorpe said yesterday no further lega! action will be taken. Highland's term of office will expire Dec. 31, 1947. He will attend his first meeting when the board next meets Aug. 21. 3,000,000 Leaflets Showered On Japan GUAM.

Leading Peace Move AH International Pacts Ratified n Tf oeoins nere Pullman-Standard's Dispute With USA-CIO Before WLU The problem of post-war wages under reconverted industrial setups centered today on the Calumet , region as the war labor board faced settlement of a dispute between the Pullman-Standard Car Manufacturing company and the United Steel Workers of America (CIO) Local 1834. The Pullman plant involved is the Calumet Lake unit at 110th street and Cottage Grove avenue, just north of Hammond. The question involved is whether war-time wage rates can be maintained in peace-time without bringing inflation. May Set Precedent The problem is one of thousands facing the labor board and its solution may set a precedent of nation-wide significance. At the Calumet Lake works, 2,700 persons are employed in the repair of rail passenger equipment needed for transcontinental troop shipments. From' early in the war until last April, the unit turned out ship parts for the navy. The war labor board entered the picture July 16 when the company and the union failed to reach a bargaining agreement, not only con cerning wages but involving work (Continued on Page 26) e.t.-.f-iof division expected to leave Camp Superforts T ...
