Mail Order House Discontinues the Sale of Firearms MAJOR BROWN TO ADDRESS LUTHERANS Chicago, N'oy.- 15.—As a matter ot public protection, in view of the Increased crime throughout the country, and especially in Chicago, Julius Itosenwald, chairman of the board of Sears, Hoenuclc and Company, announced today that the mall order house had discontinued the sale of all forms of firearms. For many years newspapers and police officials have advocated discontinuance of the sale of fire arms and as far back as 1916 his company had begun to limit such sales, Mr. Rosenwald said and in cataloguing such weapons for sale published a notice that "Intending purchasers shall furnish us with evidence that they are legally entitled to the possession of such fire arms." The company had then sought to limit such sales to police and military officers and members of police and military, organizations and others such as bank and express messengers. "Our action in limiting the sale of flro arms to officers of the law and finally discontinuing the sale ot them altogether," said Mr. Itosenwald'* announcement today, "is based on our desire to protect our good name and maintain the public good will. We feel that the moral elde of all public questions is the right side, not only because we want to be right, but because it is good business." Major W. L. Brown will address the memberB of the Zlon Lutheran church at the Sunday evening services at 7:30 o'clock. Other special numbers will be a vocal solo by Herbert Roe, Piano number by Miss Janet Elder and violin selection by Darwin Elder. Miss Luclle Cost will read "The Son Thou Caveat Me."
