Morris, because of his quaint and good natured humor. As far as could be learned, he leaves no relatives and made a special request that when he died, ! that no one was to be notified.

"Where can we get a bicycle!" "Down at the Y. W. Come on." That's what will be heard within a few weeks when the bicycling group gets underway at the Y. W. C A. but before the group can be started, there must be bicycles. "We need bicycles and we want to pay for th?m," Miss Hilda Caggiula, instructor in the health education department, said Saturday. Since the Y. W. C. A. is willing to pay for bicycles, here is ' a chance to cash in on that old bicycle that no one is using. The daytime activities program, of which Miss Adria Titterington is the head, ia planning this bicycling group and Miss Caggiula and Miss Marjorie Beck, volunteer leader, are work:ng with her. Th4 plans are not complete, but Miss Caggiula said there will be only small charge for the rental of the bicycle. There will be absolutely no other charge made and anyone who wants to take a ride may rent a bicycle. As soon es sufficient bicycles are obtained, the plans will be announced, VOTERS MEETING Election Issues to Be Discussed Sunday.

W. will be given for the best and the funniest costumes. As CoL Joseph H. Dowling and his son-in-law, Allan Barber, were about to pass another machine on their way from Columbus to Dayton, the driver of the car ahead suddenly stuck out his left hand, Barber jammed on the brakes of his car thinking the driver ahead was planning a left turn. The sudden application of brakes caused the Barber car to turn over. Luckily Dowling and his son-in-law escaped injury. When they had been rescue.!- from under the r auto, they asked the other driver what he was try ing to do. He was metely using his hand to point out some object to a fellow passenger, he explained. Many Dayton policemen have purchased the "iron claw," a new type handcuff which grasps like a vise. The pressure is controlled by the operator by means of a handle. Some experience is necessary before the claw can be properly applied. Officers have been walking about headquarters lately complaining of sore arms. Fellow policemen, catching them unawares, had been practicing on them. Graduate nurses unable to obtain work have, in some cases, returned to Miami Valley hospital where they were put on general floor duty, positions ordinarily filled by girls still in training. The student classes have been decreased by Miss Louire Schroe-der, superintendent of nurses. Th graduates receive room and board and a email salary for their services. Walter D. Cusick, counter sergeant at police headquarters,. still has t'.e pass to the World's Columbia exposition held in Chicago in 1893, given him while he was employed as a painter at the fair. At one time Cusick was fame as an interior decorator. In some of the older residences in the city his work can be seen at the present time. An evidence of returning business activity is seen in the frequent passing through Dayton of trains laden with iron ore headed for the steel plants to the south. A solid trainload of tins freight passed the eastern outskirts of tho city over the B. & O. one day this week. Xenia -A vast volume of legends and historical data about the Shawnee Indians who once inhabited this country may see the light of print soon. Dr. W. A. Galloway, who spent years in research in thi3 field, pnctically completed the record before he died a year ago. State Representative Dr. W. R. McChesney tmd Publisher Har ry Rice then took up the project. They are enlisting the aid of Gov. White and the Ohio Archaeological society to nise state funds to finance the , publication. Chief Thomas Wildcat Alvord of the Oklahoma Shawnees several times visited Dr. Galloway here and furnished an abundance of material regarding the tribe. Chief Alvord shares the belief of some of the present-day Indians that the Red Man is really of Mongolian origin and crossed to this continent in the misty pa?t by way of .Bering strait With Thanksgiving around the corner and the holidays coming on, Sheriff Eugene Frick warns all persons having fowls of any kind to be on their guard. Approach of Thanksgiving is usually a signal for raids on hen houses. Last year the practice became epidemic. The only way to guard the fowls is by ceaseless vigilance. Experience has shown that thieves work most profitably when the family leaves the premises. Staying at home is the price of poultry. One of the stenographers in the courthouse left her desk for a moment The top drawer was left open. It was nobody's business to peer into the drawer, but if anyone did, they found 10 erasers in one compartment In the past few days two serious accidents took place in Montgomery co. and no report was made to the sheriff's office. In one ease seven persons were injured and in another a man was brought to a hospital, unconscious. He was brought to the institution by a passing motorist, who left immediately. It was hours before the victim could give the authorities any account of what took place. A guilty person could easily have made his escape or covered up his guilt. Persons knowing of accidents should report the facts immediately to the sheriff's office. William Makely, retired blacksmith, went to the races, had a tip on a certain entry in the. fifth race, made his bet before the first raop. When the fifth race was concluded, Makely's horse was not in the money. He was about to tear up his ticket when someone noticed that it was a winning ticket on the first race. The man at the ticket window had misunderstood the name of the horse and the number of the race. Makely had won in spite of himself. Of an evening- Joe Keys takes out the violin he used in college days and plays with the bands as their music comes over the radio in his home, j Dayton is one "of eight Ohio ; cities selected by state and federal relief authorities as a concentra- tion center for transient men, i Cant. Chester Brown of the Salva tion Army stated Saturday. The nearest other point cf concentration will be Cincinnati, Capt. Brown said. The transient relief bureau, established originally by the Salvation Army, later was taken over by the Community Chest, and last year cost that organization approximately flO.OOO, Capt Brown pointed out. . Widened scope of the bureau's activities will require perhaps $23,-000 next year, Brown said, but this cost will be defrayed by the federal government The assumption of control by federal relief authorities means a vital change in the policy of handling transients, Brown pointed out. "Until now, the poli" -. munities has been to keep transients moving, tie seemed to be the only way in which individual agencies could protect themselves from an accumulation of transients. The federal government, to end the transient problem, will pay the bills of the bureau. A number of states have entered into a gentlemen's agreement to give relief to residents of neighboring states stranded in their communities." The Dayton bureau is to shelter transients in this part of Ohio until they can find employment here or until they are able to return to their original residences.

PLEDGES ITS SUPPORT TO INDUSTRIES Chamber Officials Gjven Data on Proposed Mortgage Co. Organization. Promise , of cooperation on the part of the Reconstruction Finance Corp. was given representatives of the industrial committee of the Chamber of Commerce, when they met with corporation officials at Cleveland, Saturday, relative to the formation of a mortgage company to aid financially various industrial firms here. This information was brought back from Cleveland, Saturday night, by Collins Wight J. D. Towne and Hugh Wall, members of the committee who met with F. S. Callander, representing the corporation. The committee will meet Monday to receive the report of its representatives and steps will be taken at once to work out the details of the organization which is contemplated. Pending that meeting, the three Dayton men did not feel it advisable to give out at this time any further information relative to the various matters discussed at Cleveland. Just when the company, will be in operation, cannot be determined at this time, because of the numerous details, which must be ar-rangod before it will be ready to function. The plan has been under consideration for some time and in brief provides for a company of $10,000 capital,' which will make possible a loan of $50,000 from the R. F. C. Funds so obtained will carry a rate of 4 per cent interest and will be loaned at not more than 6 per cent to firms, which are stable and deserving, but are unable to obtain long-term loans from banks. The money so loaned to industrials would be used in the condaet of their businesses, which would be supervised by a steering committee, to see that the loan was applied properly. Collateral would be real estate or chattel mortgages or bona fide orders for business. . All loans would be passed on by a management and a finance committee. In return for the loan, the borrowing company would assign to the mortgage company 10 per cent of its stock or other good assets and when the loan was repaid would agree to purchase 10 per cent of the stock of the mortgage company. Such an arrangement, it was explained, would give the mortgage company additional capital and permit it to make additional loans from the R. F. C. as it would be needed.
