If the federation is able to rent the gymnasium for October. Rev. Frank Swedish evangelist of Stock- holm, Sweden, will be asked to come to America for the revival services. "Reverend Rev. F. C. Hamlln, chairman of the federation, one of the greatest evan- gellsu. He will do a great amount of good if he comes to Chicago to preach for us. Consider Viking Temple "In case we are unable to lease the Bartlett gymnasium. shall at- tempt to rent the Viking temple. It Is well located and will hold large crowds." The South Side Swedish Church federation Is entering into Hs third week of revival meetings at 71st St., Perry and Vincennes aves. The services are housed In a huge tent with seating capacity for worshipers. Add Converts Daily says Reverend Hamlln, "are being added to the meeting daily. More than 500 young persons have enlisted for personal work duty." "Despite the adverse business con- says Rev. Carl J. Erickson, pastor of the Auburn Park Swedish Methodist church, and an official of the federation, "the expenses of the meetings have been met. Our free will offerings have been as large this year as they were in former years." One of the drawing cards of the meetings is the Swedish song service. Swedish pioneers, some said to be be- tween 80 and 90 years old, attend the ssrvlce each Sunday afternoon. Some of the old people come from as far as Milwaukee, Wls., and Peoria, 111.

Hyde Park, and the Oakdale Swedish Mission churches, and the Ellm Free Mission church. ________________ POLICE CAN'T STOP THE FLIRT, SAY CIVIC HEADS (Continued from page 1) minatlon to erase flirtation, he doubt- ed whether a mere police order would be effective toward this end. Like Mrs. W. A. Lear. 3436 W. 68th St., president of the Chicago Lawn Woman's club, he declared that years of good home training and proper chaperoning Is necessary to abolish flirting. Rev. John De Lacy, pastor of the Thoburn Methodist Episcopal church, 64th and Paulina sts. was dubious as to the correct application or Com- missioner Alcock's order. "I have known he said, "when men have been sincere and honorable in their intentions when they met girls In a casual way. These fellows should not be subjected to persecution. But I doubt whether police Interference can wipe out the social moron usually classified under the term 'flirt'." "Gentlemen, I think that we glue manufacturers must stick together."

GILRUTH EXPLAINS HOW CLAIMS MAY BE FILED (Continued from page 1) their claims, that such may be stamped to show that a claim has been filed thereon. Courts Follow Principles While it is impossible to set forth fully in this short statement all of the rules which determine whether a claim is entitled to preference, and although the court which has charge of the estate and not the receiver will determine whether a claimed preference should be allowed, the re- ceiver believes that the principles ap- plied Ui the following answers to questions are in accordance with the law applicable to such situations. The receiver believes that the courts will continue to apply such principles in dealing with claims against banks in receivership. The following questions are some of those that have been most fre- quently asked of the receiver and his representatives since their appoint- ment. It is hoped that reprinting them in the SOUTHTOWN KCONOMIST, together with the answers that have been given, may assist claimants in filing claims.

REVEAL DEBT OF BAIN AND ASSOCIATES (Continued from page 1) holders' liability, if. as a matter of fact. It can do either. "To meet liabilities of nearly the receiver upon his appoint- ment found cash of slightly over 000. Other resources consisted of owed by the Bain interests, ap- proximately Invested in bank buildings and furniture, most of which can be used for no other purpose, and slightly over in loans on real estate. "The rest of the assets, slightly over Include real estate and a great many real estate bonds, many of which are now In default. "In short, the fact Is that with the exception of the cash items and a relatlrely small amonnt of the re- maining: assets, the resources of the banks are tightly frozen and will re- quire careful and patient handling if anything like the value at which they have been carried on the books is to be realized. "In the nature of things. It is Im- possible to foresee now the amount for which these frozen assets can be liquidated, and the receiver is not yet in a position to estimate the amount which will be returned to depositors. To Give Facts Plainly "The receiver Intends, to pursue the policy of stating the facts plainly to depositors from time to time, so far as he can consistently do .so with regard to his duty to liquidate the assets of the banks to the best pos- sible advantage nnd in the most eco- nomical manner. "While It Is true that each bank will be liquidated as an Independent unit and some of the twelve banks may be in a better position than others, the similarity of conditions makes this statement applicable to each situation." Mr. Nelson added that the average number of depositors was for the 12 Bain banks. The total number of depositors is about 90.000. Deposits on the date of closing Mr. Nelson listed as time. and demand. The total is Depositor Group Although the general public is ac- tive only through Its depositor-com- mittee representatives from each community, these members have com- bined to fight for legislative protec- tion of the people's money. A city-wide movement, started by the depositors' protective committees of all defunct banks in Chicago, cul- minated last week In the formation of the Federated Depositors' organi- zation. This group held another meeting last night at 8 p m. at 100 N. La Salle st. In Southtown a similar group, formed by existing banking com- mittees, .met last Thursday night at the Southmoor hotel and organized the Bain Banks Depositors' com- mittee. 45 Persons Present "The similarity of our problems and the single receivership for the entire chain has made this combina- tion feasible." said Harold May, chair- man of 'the depositors' protective committee of the Stony Island bank, and appointed temporary chairman of the combined committee. "There ucrc 45 persons present, and Mr. Qllruth, the receiver for the Bain banks, came to speak to us and re- mained nearly three hours. Our gen- eral plan is to try and release finances to provide some relief'for this winter so people can buy coal." Mr. May said. William Adams. 6951 Woodlawn nve, was appointed temporary secre- tary of the new committee. The com- mittee on formulating plans for a per- manent organization is headed by Henry W. Bonncma, member of the West Auburn Business Men's associa- tion s committee on banks Serving with Mr. Bonncma, is Dr. E Byron Kelly of the depositors' pro- tootlvp S'ony I'Hrrl bank, nnd William F. Stclzcr, presi- dent of the Lawn Civic association nnd member of its committee on the Chlcaso Lawn nnd West Lawn banks. "Our plan is to help nnd protect the depositors BS much as Mr. Bonncma said He has called the next meeting Thursday at 8 o'clock at Ogden park. The session will not be open to the public, but held for the depositors' committees only. Laud Addition of Wood, Butler to Salvation Army At a special meeting of the salva- tion Army executive committee on Friday, Lewis E. Myers, chairman'of the board, announced the acceptance of Rush O. Butler. Chicago attorney, and Gen. R. E. Wood, president of Sears. Roebuck and company, as board members. According to Mr. Myers, these are two made In accordance with a resolution passed Increasing the members of the board from 17 to 20. "The addition of these two men to our board." said Mr. Mjcrs. "will mean more than words can express to the future success of this organisa- tion. "Every member feels that while last winter's depression brought about conditions unprecedented In the city and taxed to the limit the physical as well as the financial resources of the Salvation Army, the burdens of the coming winter will be proportion- ately greater. There must be some careful and systematic planning nnd wise Judgment used if we are to meet the problems which we expect will de- mand the army's the chairman said.

Gain NORMAL T073 Leave me one quart more of milk from now on D, 'URING the past year thou- sands of housewives in Chicago have found out how to feed the family better on less money and a quart of milk a day for each member of the family has been the first item on the reduced food budget. Milk gives more real body-building and health-maintaining value for the money than any other fpod. It sup- plies all the necessary food elements and all the vitamins. Actually, there arc people unable to chew or swal- low, who arc living on milk. The smaller the food budget is, the more important that quart a day for each one of the family becomes. A quart a day is an absolute necessity 1 have found that using more milk helps me feed the family better at less cost." for the growing child and the most valuable food for the grown-up, to supply energy for the day's work and keep up bodily maintenance and repairs. Milk fits in with every meal. Hot milk over crisp toast makes an appc- breakfast. The breakfast cereal calls for milk or cream, or both. Bread and milk, or crackers and milk hit the spot for the luncheon. Soups using milk constitute a real meal. Codfish or chipped beef in milk gravy arc hearty dishes, popular both with men folks and children. So arc cscallopcd potatoes, and macaroni and cheese. Even the very small food budget can provide for such inexpensive and highly nourishing desserts as rice pudding, tapioca pudding, and bread puddings. Milk should be the beverage for the children at every meal and the grown-ups will relish all that can be spared from the cooking. Remember, the food bill goes down when a quart of milk is used daily for every member of the family. It sup- plies over a quarter of each day's food needs. Why not have the con- venience of regular milk delivery to your door each day. Speak to your neighborhood Bordcn milkman or phone Franklin 3107.
