FEDERAL COURT INDICTS AS RE-
SULT OF SECRET INVEST-
OFFICERS OF COMPANY
Packers Deny That They Have Over-
charged Public for Meat Sold
New York, Oct. 21. - The federal
grand jury today, as a result of a sec-
ret investigation conducted by the at-
torney general's office, returned an in-
dictment against Armour & company,
Chicago packers, and against the of-
ficers of the company individually,
charging them with profiteering in
violation of the Lever act.
The indictment contains 137 counts,
each of which contains a sale of lamb
at an alleged unlawful and unreason-
ably rate. During April, May Sind
June, the meat. it is charged, cost
Armour & company $18.46 per 100
pounds; that the lwest it was sold
for was $23, and the highest $35, all
the sales being made to customers in
The average net profit to the com-
pany was placed at $6.61 per 100
The indictment was reported to Fed-
eral, Judge Hand.
OFFICIALS DENY REPORT
Chicago, Oct. 21.-Declaring that,
"with our lamb business as a whole
shoving a loss it seems a rather bit-
ter joke to indict us for making too
much money," officials of Armour &
company said in a statement, com-
menting on the federal indictments
returned in New York.
"We are at a loss," the statement
said, "to understand these indict-
ments. The reasonableness of profits
cannot be judged by a consideration
of a few transactions. We have made
money through the sale of New Zea-
land lambs, but we did not make
enough on them to offset the losses
we sustained in the sale of domestic
lambs, and with our lamb business as
a whole showing a loss, it seems rath-
er a bitter joke to indict us for mak-
ing too much money."

'ENSIAN TO WAGE
With the aim that every student on
the campus have a year book, the
Michiganensian will launch its sub-
scription campaign Nov. 1. This cam-
paign will last but five days and no
subscriptions will be taken after
"We are going to put out a larger
book than has been attempted in the
past," stated Boyd Logan, '21, busi-
ness manager of the Michiganensian.
"There is to be more professional art
work and the space devoted to ath-
letics has been greatly increased; in
short, we are trying to make this the
biggest and best book.
"Illinois with a smaller enrollment
than our school has a sale of more
than 5,000 annuals. Michigan with
her larger student body should far
exceed this mark. It's up to the
students. The more students who
subscribe,the better year book we can
put out." The better the year book,
the moreinfluence the University will
have in the schools to which the Mich-
iganensian is sent, Logan declared.

ponding to Chimes' Appeal
To be more correct in its statement
about University women not signing
up as rapidly as they should for the
Chimes, the business staff of that pub-
lication stated that the independent
women have taken as many subscrip-
