Secretary McAdoo Notifies
Bankers Treasury
Begin Issuing Certifi
cates December 5.
Washington. Nov. 27. Notice
that .the country must prepare for
another intensive war loan cam
paign probably in the latter part of
April, was gien today by Secretary
McAdoo in a letter to bankers ex
plaining the treasury's program for
floating-certificates of indebtedness
and bonds during the next six
The secretary stated that plans for
continuous sale- of government
bonds, recently discussed as a strong
possibility, had been abandoned and
that plans should be made for "one
more great popular campaign."
Previously he had announced that
the bonds to be offered then would
be of short maturity, less than 10
years, and it has been indicated that
the amount would be around five bil
lions. Although Mr. McAdoo did
not state the time of the campaign,
it was learned the treasury plans
tentatively to hold it the last three
weeks in April.
, Blocks of treasury certificates of
indebtedness ranging in mounts be
tween $500,000,000 and $750,000,000
will be marketed every two weeks,
beginning December 5, to provide
funds for running the government
until payments from the Fifth war
loan begin to come in and these
payments then will be used to pay
oil the certificates. Every bank will
be expected to subscribe 5 per cent
of its gross resources monthly to
these certificates. The first issue of
$600,000,0(10 minimum, announced to
day, may be subscribed between De
cember 5 and December 10, will ma
ture next May 6. and will bear 4'2
per cent. This rate is not consider
ed as affording any indication of the
interest to be borne by the Fifth war
loan bonds
Mr. McAdoo also disclosed today
that the government's expenses this
month probably will run to a new
high record of $2,000,000,000 and
that "the wise policy of prompt liqui
dation of contracts" may increase
rather than lower the government's
Exercise Tried as Cure
1 , ; in Case of Shell Shock
. Chicago. Nov. 27. Physical
training as a means of restoring men
affected by shell shock is being
tried at the new reconstruction hos
pital at Fort Sheridan, under direc
tion of the head of the hospital. The
reconstruction problem is being
worked out on 40 cases received
from France, each patient in some
stage of temporary insanity as a re
sult of shell shock. The theory on
which the work is being done is that
nhvsical development first and men
tal development later will, bring ,
about recovery.
i Rope skipping, band ball, basket
ball, boxing and the like are gone
"through in the order named, the
amount of work gradually increased,
and in some cases recovery is ef
fected in a short time. Only a small
percentage of the cases are violent
and these are given work under
guard. In some cases the patients
will work only when music is
Officers at the fort expect the hos
pital to be equipped for 1,500 men
by December 1. The final capacity
is to be 5.000.

Chicago Grain and Provisions.
Chicago, Nov. 27. Corn tended down
ward In price today, despite frequent
rallies due to pre-hollday evenlng-up. The
market lacked aggressive support, ad
closed unsettled at 4Ho net decline,
with December $1.24 and January $1.26
1.25K. Oats finished c off to He up.
In provisions the outcome was an advance
of 10c to $1.00.
It was a choppy market throughout the
day in corn, but sales on the bulges were
too heavy for the demand. Eastern houses
took a conspicuous part in the selling, and
It was said that shipping inquiry from the
east was slow. Orders to purchase cams
almost entirely from the shorts. Favorable
weather conditions for husking and shelling
gave an advantage to the bears, and led
to continued predictions of larger receipts
Feeders were reported, however, to be after
cash grain at interior points. Besides,
gossip Was current that farmers aa a rule
showed but little disposition as yet to let
go of their holdings. Receipts meanwhile
continued small and ' country offerings
Oats followed corn except that proposed
liberal shipments from here next week
strengthened to November delivery.
Provisions averaged higher with hogs.
Some of the buying of ribs was attributed
to packers, and lard movement remained

New Tork, Nov. 27. Shipping shares
monopolized the bulk of speculative atten
tlon In today's stock market, their activity
ana strengtn far outstripping all other is
sues in which irregular or reactionary ten
dencies most orten prevailed.
Anounced that the Washington govern
ment had made a. tentative offer for the
huge tonnage of the Mercantile Marine
company, thereby halting the negotiations
with British Interests, resulted in highly
spectacular movements.
Marine preferred made an extreme ad
vance of almost 16 points, forfeiting one
third of Its advantage in the heavy real
izing of the last hour; the 6 per cent bondi
showed a gross gain of 6 points and the
common shares 4 points, with substan
tial gains in associated Issues.
Other speculative favorites were hesitant,
again denoting the adverse Influence en
gendered by further reports of cancella
tions of war contracts and diminished pro
duction in many lines of Industry.
United States Steel and independent in
dustrials also leading and secondary
equipments reacted 1 to 3 points with
coppers Motors were heavy In conse
quence of the greater pressure directed
against Studebaker and oils reversed their
upward course of the previous session,
Mexican Petroleum declining almost 6
Ralls developed an erratic trend at the
outset, yielding 1 to 2 points later, but
some of the gas Issues and other utilities
remained steady to firm until carried un
der by the broader selling which marked
the final dealings.
Trading in bonds was rontracted and the
tone irregular, foreign and domestic Is
sues easing fractionally. Liberty fourth
4Vs established a new minimum at 97, 3
per cent under the subscription price. To
tal sales, par value, aggregated $9,750,
000,000. Old United States bonds were un
changed on call.

House-Cleaning Necessary
Says President Heydler
New York, Nov. 27. The way to
start base ball house cleaning is for
the National and American leagues
to hold a joint session 'of two days
or more and consider the various
proposed reforms, John Heydler,
acting president of the National
league, said here today.
I here is altogether too much
aloofness, suspicion and lack oi
confidence between the club owners
of the two leagues," Mr Heydler
said in explaining his proposal. It
is all right to fight each other on
the ball field during the playing sea
son, but at other times there should
be at least the ordinary business
co-operation that exists in othei
competitive lines.
To attempt to carry on a so-
called reconstruction program with
out the sincere aid of the 16 club
Cjwners, as well as of authorized
representation of the minor leagues,
would result in absolute failure."

Hamilton Divorce
Suit Reaches Stormy
Climax Before Judge
A contested divorce case between
William H. and Viola May Hamil
ton of 413 North Eighteenth street,
reached a stormy climax Wednes
day afternoon before Judge Day in
district court when Hamilton ac
cused Peter Salestrom of being a
disturbing element in his home. .
Mrs. Hamilton manages a rooming
house. Her husband is a night ma
chinist, and Salestrom is a roomer
with the, Hamiltons. Salestrom had
testified in behalf of Mrs. Hamilton,
and the Court announced that the
case would be resumed Friday
morning, when Hamilton pointed an
accusing finger in Salestrom face,
and called to heaven to bear witness
that he was telling the truth. Attor
neys rushed toward the disputants,
and the court ordered that the affair
should be stopped.
Mrs. Hamilton brought suit for di
vorce, and the huband filed a cross
petition. Both alleged misconduct)
the husband's evidence already of
fered charging the wife with having
been addicted to the practice oi
corresponding with strange men
