Trouncing the Pearl Memorials,
who were hampered by the loss of
the Koneckys, the- First Christian
basket ball team of Council Bluffs
gained a strangle hold on the su
premacy of the Church Basket Ball
league in a 27-to-16 game played
last night on the Young Mens
Christian association's floor.
The first half of the encounter
lacked pep, since the Pearl Memor
ial team appeared to despair of vic
tory because of the absence of the
Koneckvs. who were practicing with
the Central High quintet against;
the Creighton varsity hve. tne
score stood 17 to 6 at the end of
the first half.
Davis, Wilson and Mordick, who
had failed to register a single tally
curing ine niuiai pcuuu, wcic w-
out and subs sent in. The new men
seemed to have fight in their blood ;
and held their own with the team
from across the stream. Mordick
returned to the game in the middle
of the second half. Some neat shots
by Parish and Barryman kept down
the lead of the victors. Each team
chalked up 10 points during this
period. Datesman, Benz and Mellor
starred for the victors.
Two Tied for Lead.
The First Christians and the Han
scom Parks now head the league.
They are booked to meet next
Tuesday night in the last set of
games in the first round. The
Bluffs team is composed entirely
of' Council Bluffs High school play
ers. The "Y" dormitory men sent their
reorganized ttvn in to compete with
the Calvary Baptists. Both teams
had lVo games to their credit so
the loser was doomed to the cellar
position. Hard luck shooting bas
kets gave this "honor" to the "Y"
men. The first half was well play
ed, but the second was easy for
the Baptists, who triumphed, 21 to
The Hanscom Parks-Benson
Methodist encounter went to the
Hanscom Park men, 38 to 13. The
Bensonites failed to exhibit the style
shown - last week au'd succumbed
after futile opposition. Reel and
Calvert were the chief point getters.
Fullington also played a good game
for' the victors.

I tees against additional legislat:on to

Louis F. Swift of Swift & Co. told the

Some limitation of capitalization
of packing companies was suggested
by Senator Gronna of North Dakota,
after Francis J. Heney had cross-examined
Mr. Swift on increases of his
company's capital stock.
Mr. Heney said that by separat
ing the Swift company into three
organizations recently the market
value of the original stock had been
increased more than $100,000,000. Mr
Swift denied this and agreed to in

Thomas Creigh, attorney for

He said such an investigation had
not been conducted by the federal

May Leave Hospitals
When Fitted to Work
' Washington, Jan. 28. Surgeon
General Ireland announced today
that it was the War department's
policy to retain wounded and sick
soldiers in military hospitals only .
long enough to restore their
health to a degree which would
permit them to return to their
former occupations. It was not
their purpose to keep the men in
definitely, he said, and thus ex
pose them to "hospitalization."
Soldiers who have been blinded
or their eyesight much impaired
, will under the regulations be re
tained until they are able to care
for themselves or otherwise
physically fit for discharge. The
deaf or nearly deaf may be retain
ed until they learn lip reading.
Cases of amputation of the leg
or arm, or both, are to be kept in
the hospitals until provisional arti
ficial limbs or arms are provided
and reasonable proficiency in their
be the next witnesses before the
house committee. V

Charles Piez, director general of the
Emergency Fleet corporation, said
today that yards on both the At

Mr. Piez, is that the type of ships
which it will be found advisable to
construct under peace conditions are
being determined by the committee
of experts which is now at work."

Is This Your Bill?
"The Sins of the Flesh" are punished in this
world not in the next.
Disease is not an accident, nor is it sent
by Providence. It is Nature's punishment 1
for the breaking of her laws.
Hemorrhoids, for example, occasion an
infinite degree of discomfort, suffering arid
misery. So does a fissure or a fistula.
But such punishments are meted out to
those who sin against Nature in two ways,
by neglecting to maintain regular, easy,
thorough evacuation of the bowels who
form the bad habit of constipation, or what
is a worse habit, the taking of pills, castor
oil, purgative mineral waters, salts, etc., with
the mistaken idea of overcoming constipation
by forcing the bowels to move unnaturally.
But'the Nujol Treatment for Constipation
prevents such sins ot the flesh, or mitigates
the punishment therefor.
" Nujol helps to re-establish .easy, regular,
thorough evacuation of the bowels
Nujol is not a drug, does not act like any '
Nujol is absolutely harmless-.
Nujol keeps the waste matter soft, moist,
