on the "Army." She said that Serge
told her it would be nice if he and
.ave--who is married to Mae Mur-

--could organize an army. What they
intended to do with it was a mystery
to Miss McCormic.-
There was a mobilization of several

gred that he was drilling an army
for the brothers-who are en route
tQ Los Angeles from Europe-but the
recruits apparently thought they
wereto work in a film story at $7.50
a day.
Miss McCormic said:
"I didn't think anything of the
army business until I received a letter
from Allen. He told me 'our' army
was going to be reviewed. It indicated
that 'the boys'--Serge and David-
had ordered mobilization before they
left for Europe four months ago, and
that now that the troops were in
shape, I should review them.
"Allen said I was going to be made
an honorary Colonel. Of what?"

"But I declined the honor," the
singer said. "I ,was afraid if I ad-

would get a bill for 250 luncheons for

She recalled that Prince Serge wore

Ore Ex ecd
To se In
CLEVELAND, July 20.-()-Mar-
ne circles here today predicted five
times as much iron ore would be
moved on great lakes freighters this
season as was shipped during the
antire, summer of&932.
The forecast followed an order by
the -Pittsburgh Steamship Co., a
United States Steeltcorporation sub-
'idiary and largest operator of bulk
reighters on the lakes, to place 40
'nore ships 'in commission for the
iron -ore trade.
Consumption of ore by blast fur-
naces is looked upon as an indi-
;ator of industrial activity. The steel
nade from the ingots ' always has
>een considered one of the best busi-
aess gauges. Consumption increased
nore than three times from March
vo June-from 593,024 tons to 1,-
394,000 tons.
Th -Pittsburgh company's action
came after the parent steel cor-
?oration announced an additional
3,000,000 tons of ore must be moved
from the northern mines as soon as
Shippers interpreted these orders
'q -mean the season's movement of
iron ore would total about 20,000,-
300 tons. Up to July 1, lake ship-
.ments amounted to 2,264,413 tons.Y
The total shipments for 1932 wereI
but 3,567,985 tons.
The Pittsburgh Steamship Co., at
present, has 31 vessels in commission.I
The addition of 40 more will bring
its fleet to eight times the size of
that used last year.
All other steamship companiesi
operating in the lakes bulk freightt
trade also have a larger percentagei
of their-vessels in commission than
they did a year ago. Six companies
are operating on a 100 per cent basis.
The majority of the ships in opera-
tion are engaged in the ore trade.
Company K To Spend 2
Weeks At Guard Camp
Two weeks at the National Guard
camp are ahead for the men of Com-
pany K, 125th Infantry, who will
complete preparations for their trip
north -today. The company -will en-
train shortly after supper time today
on the Michigan Central.
This afternoon will be spent by the
Ann Arbor company in arranging bed
rolls and baggage for shipment. Sup-
per will be served to them at the
Armory and the march to the rail-

road station will commence there at
7:30 p. m.

Why it should be advantageous to

ROaming Dogs Chortle--.
The Sheriff Can't Kill 'Em
LANSING, July 20,-Michigan's
dogs no longer need cringe at sight
of a sheriff. The dog law adopted in
1919 said, "The sheriff shall also
kill, upon complaint of the prosecut
ing attorney, any dog that is in the
habit of running =at large unaccom-
panied by owner or his agent." This
provision has been repealed by the
1933 legislature. Other changes in
the dog law are:
The age limit for registeering dogs
is increased from four to six months;
license fees are reduced from $2 and
$4 to $1 and $2 if secured before
June 1.
. County boards of supervisors. are
empowered to reduce these fees in
certain circumstances; fees of town-
ship treasurers are reduced from 15
to 10. cents per dog while those of
township supervisors or dog wardens
are reduced from 20. to 10 cents per
dog. Boards of supervisors are also
given power to appoint county dog
wardens, if desired.
Gasoline Consumption Is
Increasing In Michigan
LANSING, July 20.-A perceptible
increase in the consumption of gas-
oline in Michigan is shown by gaso-
line tax collections of the depart-
ment of state. Reports of the May

gasoline sale show a tax increase of
$62,000 over May of thee year pre-
vious. This represents approximately
2,000,000 gallons of gasoline. May is
the first month of 1933 to show an
increase in gasoline usage over the
corresponding month in 1932.

their sharp rosy glow adding to the

Once inside one notes the same
formality of decoration. The lights
consist of two parallel rows border-
ing a four4foot panel which runs the
length, of the ceiling. The walls are
covered with smooth plaster finished
in: buff color. - A paneling of metal
construction extends about 12 feet
high about the -room. This panel is
4blocked- off in large even squares of
alternating light and -dark oak-col-

luminized: columns supporting con-
ventional plaster decorations.
