heavy oversubscription of Federal
bonds and certificates.

He also was informed that on the
August certificates $300,000,000 had
been asked for and that $1,500,000,-
000 had been obtained. As a result
it was decided that the offering
would be closed to all subscribers in
amounts above $10,000.
In connection with the favorable
cash balance in the Treasury, the
White House said that the sum was
even greater than that on hand in
days of the World War, totaling ap-

CHICAGO, Aug. 2.- () -Nude'
dancing at A Century of Progress is
at an end.
Dancing in the nude at various
shows at the Oriental village and
other places along the midway at
the World's Fair was halted by the
various concessionaries T u e s d a y
Their action followed an edict by
Mayor Edward.J. Kelly, who visited
the fair the other night and saw a
"Lady Godiva" ride a camel and a
woman dancing without clothing. He
subsequently issued an order that
shows which he described as "inde-
cent" be eliminated or the places
would be closed.
The concessionaires were warned
they'd have to tone down the per-
formances, and as a result crowds
that flocked into the fair grounds
saw a fan dancer dance in trunks
and a brazziere instead of just fans.
One show in the "Slums of Cairo"
was closed by a policeman after an
investigator had watched a pei-form-
ance of a female impersonator. The
mayor's move was praised by Rufus
C. Dawes, president of the fair.
"We welcome this help and co-
operation on the part of the duly
constituted officials whose duty it is
to see that the laws are enforced," he
said. "There is certainly a limit to
these dances and exhibitions and I
believe that the limit has been passed
.. .We will lend every, effort to co-
operate with the mayor in any sug-
gestion he might have."
