This colony forms only a small percentage of the total foreign population ' in Berlin, which has reached . the figure of 132,000. Although the German capital can not compete seriously with Paris, London or New York, in regard to the cosmopolitan character of its population, statistics just published show that the foreign element is growing in diversification as well as numbers. The Poles lead with a total of 29;000. The Austrians, Czechoslovakia's and Russians come next, and the end of the list is composed of one solitary citizen of Andorra,; the freest republic in the -world.. There are five, from Lichtenslein, 12 from Monaco and !>3 form Iceland in. the colony. THE PRIMARY Royal Hunter Takes to the Air Contests in Certain Districts Cause the Vote to Come 'Out Strong.

(International Newsreel) ]' MOVING TIME Following the closing of the Arcadia bank recently, Arcadia is again in the limelight, this time on account of a still being found in the town: A three^room house in . the southeast part of Arcadia belonging to Billy Hill, untenanted but which was leased to George Plew claiming to be from > Andereon, was discovered on fire Monday evening by . nearby neighbors about 7:00 o'clock: While, fighting the fire a still was found in one of the rooms. ! Sheriff Ramsay of Noblesvilld was called and lie plaeed Mr J Mill, the proprietor, under arrest. Mr. Hill was-Iater released undor *500 bond _and Tuesday in company with the sheriff was in Anderson trying to locate Mr. Plew. There were 35 barrels of mash in the operating room. The hews of the finding caused not a little excitement and comment in the community. Mr. Hill has been under the impression that' his tenant was paying his rent and holding the house ^-preparing to move into it and was not aware of its use for illicit purposes. township has contests for trustee on both tickets and these injected life into the primary there. • Ip Liberty township voting started strong in the morning, the Republicans especially polling a heavy vote before noon. The reason for this'is' that there are four candidates for the nomination for trustee on the Republican ticket. The Republicans also had a contest for assessor. In Wildcat township with a contest for the Democratic nomination for trustee, the ' interest was keen ajid the Democrats were polling a large vote. The Republicans have three candidates for the office of assessor of that township and this caused some hustling. Prairie township reported a good vote before the noon hour especially/in the Democrat ranks on account of the interest in the trustee race. The Democrats have two candidates for assessor. • In Jefferson township where there was also a contest in the Democrat ranks for trustee voting was reported as not so brisk at the noon hour and it was not expected a big vote would be polled. Cicero township precincts reported a very light vote at noon Tuesday with the Democrats leading in numbers. At Precinct No. 2, at noon 10 votes had been cast, being less than one-sixth of the vote' of that precinct. Firms Forced to Vacate Cit kens Bank Building Are Getting Back.

There is a distinct correlation between ownership of automobiles and the prevalence of divorce, and coffee and tobacco are contributing factors in the rise in crime, it is asserted by Professor Roland M. Harper of the University of Georgia in The Eugenics Magazine. ' Theses-views were expressed in citing results of a study ot the social trends and vital statistics of Prince Edward Island, f. Canada, which Professor.';>Harpar contrasts with, the United; States , He .found but little crime and almost .no divorce ^«mong the 1 Prince Edward Islander*, but also, great simplicityvof Jlfe and very little wealth.He -aaVi^ • "Our ,j>reseat crime .wave 'and high. and _»pidly inivMliw vor:e rate ai «}proba^:^d«e !n large vmi^Murel ^^oolaiach plea*-' "ijtalgMiMrin ^oar^ the ' )<m. nreHKeklng^ InzurlefitaHl'' "In ithe matter of automobilas,' there seems to be a fairly close correlation: between them and divorce. In the course of a year it costs about as much to own and operate an automobile as to feed, clothe and educate a child; so an automobile used mainly for pleasure generally means one child less in the family, and ""smaller families mean more. divorces. - L"ln this country the annual per capita consumption of tobacco has Increased' from;'about six pounds in 1900 to nine in r l!>20.
