UUUI LU IU IIL.U uIni i
BOLSHEVIKI MAY HAVE PLAN.
NED USING BOGUS MONEY
IN AXERICA
Antwerp, Nov. 24.-Attempts of
Bolshevik agents to get through to
America with counterfeit money, made
in Moscow, which it is believed they
planned to use, in financing radical red
movements in the United States, have
been discovered and, perhaps, thwart-
ed by American government agents in
Central Europe.
In connection with what officials
believe to be a very carefully -organ-
ized scheme to encourage strikes, un-
rest and promote bolshevism in the
United States, directed from Moscow,
evidence has been secured of a plan
to send to the United States bogus
paper currency of several European
nations, to be changed there into valid
banknotes or securities.
Use Foreign Money
Four men, coming direct from Mos-
cow, who sought' to go to America,
were known to have had in their pos-
session counterfeit French banknotes
representing more than $100,000.
The Moscow scheme, according to
these officials, is quite simple; the
changing in one country of the false
counterfeit money of another, on the
theory that bankers are not particu-
larly familiar with the appearance of
foreign currency.
Is Ingenious Scheme h
A considerable amount of this bogus
money is believed to have been passed
successfully in America, as recently, a
number of Polish Bolshevik agitators,
returning to Poland from America for
the purpose, it is believed, of promot-
ing Bolshevism behind the lines of the
Polish army which was fighting the
reds, have had in their possession;
thousands of dollars in American cur-
rency, thought to have been secured
in exchange for bogus foreign bank-,
notes in America.
"This Moscow counterfeiting scheme'
is an exceedingly ingenuous, double-9
acting one," said one police official'
who has been following it. "The'
Kremelin theory is that this 'queer
stuff,' when changed, provides goodI
noney for Bolshevik uses, and, at the

same time, by flooding the world with
bad money, sends pricesup, creates
unrest and makes things riper for"the
big revolution Lenine is looking for."'

MUCH TALENT FOUND

Hospital Notes

BY DRAMATIC CENSUS
TO BE USED IN VARIOUS
STAGE PRODUCTIONS
OF UNION

MEN

The Social Service department, in
conjunction with the chief resident
physician at the University hospital,1
will examine all patients before they
are dismissed from the hospital, ac-
cording to an announcement made by
Miss Imogene Poole, superintendent
of department. "This innovation has
been introduced in order to create a
feeling of satisfaction among all
patients leaving the hospital," said
Miss Poole. "Those who are in need
of further treatment will be cared for
in their homes."
Dr. R. M. Cleary, '2M, an intern in
the surgical service, who was operated
upon Friday for appendicitis, is rest-.
ing easily according. to a statement
made at the hospital.
Joseph Lawton, efficiency expert of
Jackson, is visiting the University
hospital in order to obtain ideas for
a new administration system to be in-
stalled in the Foote Memorial hospital
at Jackson.
GRADUATE CLUB WILL HOLD
SMOKER NEXT WEDNESDAY
Men students who are members of
the Graduate club will hold a smoker
at 7:30 o'clock Wednesday evening,
Dec. 1, in the upper reading room of
the Union. The meeting will be in,
honor of the members of the graduate
school and all men students in this,
department are especially invited to
attend.
Austrian Finances in Bad Shape
Vienna, Nov. 24.-Austria's finances
go from bad to worse. The govern-
ment admits an estimated deficit this
year of about 13,000,000 crowns but
Allied investigators and some of the
newspapers place it nearer 20,000,000.
The total indebtedness of the country'
is placed at approximately 80,000,000.l
Thirty-three per cent of the Austro-
Hungarian bank circulation, or about
23,000,000,000 crowns, is now within-
the republic. The note circulation has
increased four fold since April last.

Several men who will be used to
advantage in the Union dramatic pro-
ductions have been discovered in the
census that is being taken of the avail-
able talent on the campus. To date
173 men havebeen interviewed by E.
Mortimer Sl, uter with -the view of
ascertaining their ability In the vari-
ous activitiestfor which they regis-
tered when 'they signed up at the
Union this fall.
Although many of the men will not
be eligible for any of the casts this
year because of the first year on the
campus eligibility rule, a good per-
centage can be used and those who
must wait another year are being en-
couraged to improve their work as
much as possible that they may secure
places next year.
A classical pianist, said to be of
unusual ability, has been found, and
a violinist who specializes in the same
kind of music. Singers, dancers, skit
writers, saxaphone players, and trap
artists have appeared before Shuter,
and an unusually complete list of tal-
ent has thus been compiled for use
during the year.
The work is not as yet completed,
there being some 250 men yet to be.
interviewed. This departure from the
customary procedure of haphazard
cast selection will better the quality
of the Union shows materially, accord-
ing to those in charge of the census.'

FAMOUS PALACE
NOW A HOSPITAL
Constantinople, Nov. 24.-The for-
mer home of Riza Pasha, grand vizier
under Sultan Abdul Hamid, one of the
most interesting old palaces that line
the Bosphorus, has been secured for
the Trachoma hospital of the Ameri-
can Near East Relief. Here the chil-
dren of the orphanages of Turkey,
suffering with trachoma, will be treat-
ed. The hospital will form a nucleus
for the study of the eye diseases of
the East and a trachoma specialist will
be a resident physician.
The palace is surrounded by a beau-
tiful garden, divided in two parts, the
salamlek and the haremlek. In the
secluded garden of the haremlek, in
the past inhabited only by the women
of the harem, 10 Greek boys from the
Prinkipo Greek orphanage are playing
American football. They have mild
cases of trachoma and Pave entered
the hospital before the opening to help
in the painting of beds for the future
occupants. They are- enjoying to the
utmost the old houfe and garden. so
carefully chosen by the great Turkish
pasha.

t~ffact:
At fashionable French
Lick Springs Hotel," as
at many other famous
resorts, Fatima's sales
exceed those of any
other cigarette.

Sooner or later, men learn
the difference between:

Too much Turkish
Too little Turkish
Just enough Turkish
T'S a taste-difference, of course. Many men, for ex-
ample, find that straight Turkish cigarettes are so rich
that they tire the taste. They contain too much Turkish'
tobacco.
These men may then try a part-Turkish or Turkish
Blend cigarette and find that it tastes "flat" and "thin"-
due to too little Turkish.
Between these two extremes, more and more men are
finding the happy medium in Fatima's 'just enough Turkish"
blend.
They are choosing Fatima because while it contains less
Turkish than straight Turkish cigarettes, it contains more
than any other Turkish Blend.
In other, words, Fatima contains "just enough Turkish"
tobacco and this, it seems from sales-facts like that shown
above, is just what discriminating smokers want-just what
you want.
