The mail order books graphically depict year-to- year changes in the necessities, comforts and prices that have taken place in the last half century. Let's look at the catalogs issued 50 years ago, in 1907, by the nation's two leading mail order houses. One of the catalogs of that year included a message of reassurance for horses and people who relied on them. Never fear, said the catalog. Those new-fangled horseless carriages will nover replace old dobbin. Washing Machine; $6.50 Next, the catalog went on to fill more than 20 pages with advertisements for buggies, cutters sleighs. Another 40 pages and displayed a wide selection of saddles, harnesses and other horse-oriented accessories. Ten more pages showed off the latest in blacksmith equipment, items you won't find in today's catalog. Except for an automobile tire here' and there, the 1907 catalog gave no indication that the automobile was here to stay.

Wallace, 40, Richmond, apparently was the 1,000th name added to the list of dead. The traditionally unlucky number 13 was involved in Wallace's death as the state hit the 1,000 mark four days later than last year. Wallace, a mechanic, was injured Nov. 13 and he was the 13th traffic fatality recorded in Wayne County this year. A car driven by Gerald M.

A car speeding to take an injured boy to Methodist Hospital hit Hughes who was walking home from work. The car was" driven by Mrs. Joan Bush, 42, Indianapolis.

The airplane, mostly an innovation to make jokes about, was shown by 1907 cartoonists as a great boon to the iceman or coal hauler. They were shown delivering their supplies by air and dropping them down chutes. A "modern bathroom outfit" cost $48. A potbelly stove could be yours for $21.33.

Seek More Clues In Slaying Case At Indianapolis 1TODTANAPOLTS PUP) - Police sought more clues today in their investigation of the slaying of Theodore R. Turner, 51, Indianapolis oil company executive, who was killed Sunday night by four •bullets fired at him in the driveway of his fashionable home. Detectives were not even sure of a motive. Robbery appeared the most likely reason for Turner's slaying because he was returning home after making collections of receipts from four filling stations he owned. On the other hand, officers checked the' possibility Turner may have had business enemies. A derringer pistol found at the shooting scene was a clue, but a controversial one. It was not used to fire the fatal shots. Police believed it may have been Turner's and that he may have carried it in fear of his life. But relatives said he never carried 'a gun.
