VICTOR SUES FOR
Charges Brodegaard Company
With Using Similar Trade
Mark to Sell Its
The Victor Talking Machine com
pany of Camden, N. J., filed suit in
federal court Thursday against
Brodegaard Bros, company, operating
a jewelry store at Mxteentn -ana
Douglas streets. The plaintiff al
leges that the defendant is infringing
the plaintiff's trade mark and trade
name and misleading the public. "
The complaint states that Brode
gaard Bros, company is selling a
talking machine named the "Victo
ria;" that the name "Victoria"1 is
placed on the machine in the same po
sition as vthe name "Victor" on the
plaintiff's well-known machine and
that folders are printed in such a way
as to mislead the public into believ
ing that the, "Victoria" talking ma
chine is the "Victor."
Samples of the folders advertising
the machine are appended to the com
plaint. Jt is pointed out that one of
these folders shows a picture of a
man standing beside the "Victoria"
machine and holding in his hand a
"Victor" record, all of which, it is
alleged, is part of an intention to
mislead and deceive the public. A
photograph of the window at Six
tenth and' Douglas streets containing
the (display 01 the machine is also
appended, The window has a sign
reading f V Victoria talking machine,
I he takers advertising the machine
are printed in foreign languages, '

K. Haddon, vice president of the Vic
tor Talking Machine company. It
states also that the trade name, good
will, etc., of the Victor company "are
worth far more4han $1,000,000."
Damages are "asked from the de
fendant and an injunction preventing
the defendant from continuing to of
fer the "Victoria" machine for sale
under that name. ... , .

QN JERUSALEM FALL
Rev. C. W. Savidge Quotes
From Bible to Shpw As
cendancy of the Holy
- ' . City,
Jerusalem was never intended to be
a Jewish nation is the opinion of Rev.
C. W. Savidge of the People's church,
but it shall be a nation of all the peo
ples of the earth; Mr. Savidge takes
this interpretation from three verses
of the Bible, which; predicts that it
shall conc to pass that 10 men shall
akc hold of the skirt of him that is a
Jew, saying "we will go with you for
we have heard that God is with you."
The verses to which Mr. Savidge
refers are the twenty-first, twenty
second and twenty-third verses of the
eighth Chapter of Zachariah:
21. And the inhabitants of one city
shall go to another spying, let us go
speedily to pray before the Lord and
to seek the Lord of hosts. I will go
22. Yea, and many people and
strong nations shall come to seek the
Lord of hosts in Jerusalem and to
pray before the Lord, i
23. Thus saith the lord of hosts;
in those days it shall come to pa,ss
that 10 men shall take hold of the
skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, we
will go with you. For we have heard
that God is with you.

Few Enlisted Men of the
Navy Want Commissions
Men who enlist in the navy are
permitted, under a law enacted a
number of years ago, to study and
work themselves up to become com
missioned officers if they study hard
enough and can pass the examination.
Very few enlisted men take ad
vantage of this wonderful oppor
tunity, however, and there's a rea
son. A seeker after knowledge who
invaded naval headquarters soon
learned to his satisfaction why en
listed men do not care to take the ex
amination. As a rule every enlisted man has
just so much vork to do aboard a
ship, consequently he does not have
much time to bend his back over a
book in a frantic effort to dig out the
technical side of the knowledge re
quired by a commissioned officer. In
about 10 years' service he is ready to
take the examination, but by that
time he had advanced and is pulling
down "big" money.
He analyzes everything down to its
logical conclusion and decides that he
will be better off if he holds his pres
ent position. It's like this: Suppose
a lad of 23 enlisls. In 10 years he
may be drawing a salary and per
quisites equivalent to $150 per month.
In another 10 years he can retire on
a pension of $75 per month. If he
takes the examination and passes he
will have to stick around 30 years
longer before he is placed on the re
tired list with a pension of $125 per
He figures thit at the age of 43,
with a monthly pension of $75, he
will be better fitted to grasp the op
portunities presented than he will be
to wait until he is 63 and have' a
monthly income of $125. In addition
he takes into consideration tfie mor
tality rate and learns that, according
to statistics, he may not live long
enough to get much enjoyment of his
