B>    Special    Serv    ice  SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 22.—To stamp out the traffic in illicit drugs and its terrible toll shown to be, on .in alarming increase in America.! government, state and municipal authorities are establishing in San* Francisco the strangest club in the country.  It is an association of men and women enslaved by narcotics.  To Sell at Cost.  The club is to be based on a municipal drug dispensary where '■fiends" may buy their rations at cost price; where they will be under observation, and where, thru a tapering off process and under the care of experts, cure and reclamation maybe effected.  It is the first of a chain of such institutions to be established iii all the larger cities.  There is but one requirement for membership—the applicant must be a drug addict.  Ten thousand San Franciscans are expected to apply for membership. Daily rations of morphine, cocaine, heroin, opium and strychnine are to be sold at one-tenth to one-eighth the price no* demanded by drug traffickers. Daily the dose i; diminished until the addict lie\ ed.  t ome ami (!o Freely*.  Instead of sneaking into dark hallways and into rendezvous beneath sidewalks too meet drugj vendors, addicts will come and go at the clubhouse as freely as they would elite:    or    leave their own  homes. There will be no police, no government secret agencies, no social workers. One department will be tor women, the other for men.  In charge of the institution will be reputable psychopathic physicians who give their services gratuitously. Every club member will be under* medical obsen anon, and when his cure has been effected his name will I be taken from the books.  Lounging and reading rooms are to be fitted out with flowers, drapes and furnishings to create an atmosphere psychologically necessary for the reclamation of drug slaves.  \\ ealthy Addicts.  The projec* is sponsored by Justus S. Wardell, collector of internal revenues, Mayo: James Kolph, Jr., and several state officials. It is said several wealthy men, tonner drug addicts, who fought their way to reason thru great mental and physical torture, are backing tile club.  I* S. Comunssionei 01 Revenue, Roper, ha- instructed Wardell t;> put his plan in’o operation.  "When a man suffers for la**k of narcotics he will commit crimes to obtain relief. With a man earning $2o weekly and hts craving demanding 14ft worth of such drugs, the logical result is crime to obtain the other $2" There are 4,0000,'*00 drug addn s in the United States and as long as they remain uncured drug traffickers will continue to prey on them and the victims will commit crime* against society, *  ^4, |    ^    *.................. _____  Sixty-Sixth Will Go Down in History  As the “Soda Water” Congress  -I**.* *1*  *«►> -I* V V vv~v. •* V  •W!«  VW  vv vv -5~K* vvv*-*v  PUNITIVE EXPEDITION INTO MEXICO  REPORTS MANY BANDITS KILLED  REPUBLICAN CONGRESS, MONTHS IN SESSION, CEEDED IN REPEAL, ONE TAX.

MEXICO CITY, Aug. * 2. —The newspapers of Mexico City yesterday continued their appeals to the Mexican people "to rouse themselevs” to what is called an imminent danger to * he country. They print telegrams from the governors of the states of Si nolo., Neuvo Leon, Que-rataro. and Tabasco, expressing “unconditional adhesion” to President Carranza.

By News* Special Service  WASHINGTON, Aug. 22.—The Sixty-Sixth may become famous as the "Soda Water Congress.”  The present congress, with republicans in the majority in both branches, has been in session three months and about all it has done  is the passage by rn© House of a bill to repeal the tax on soda water, which wmuld cost the Federal treasury something like $21,000,000 per annum. Even the soda whaler bill, however, has failed thus far to get out of the workless senate committee on finance, of which Senator Penrose of ePnnsylvania is chairman.  For weeks prior to the issuance of the call for a special session of congress, republicans were severe in their criticism of the president for delaying the call. One of the reasons they gave for demanding an early convening of congress was the necessity for the enactment of legislation to meet the reconstruction problems that follow:ed the close of the war, and particularly a need for the readjustment of the tax and tariff schedules.  In his call for the special session, issued in May', the president recognized the need for constructive legis-  Deen superintendent of lation, and in his message to con-board of health, is no-:&ress at its convening, referred es-  own economic future.”  Mr. Hoover and his party gained  t)r *  J A *  the impression that the millions of the county — -- —-    -    mvn^iiv tr» mature nf lavation n™  people tin oui:bout central Europe tiffing the peoplloof Powoiloco,punty f    .“J" 8 ,  6 "-” -  of fear that the  th *t  free  typhoid vaccine can now be had from any physician.

Although the vast population of the former dual empire is on the verge of actual starvation, the people are zealously guarding tneir newly found liberties.  The civ that greets every American, Mr. Hoover said is:  "For God’s sake do not leave us now.”  In Poland the people are tilling the fields with home-made farming implements. The Poles declare that they want only one mort* year’s assistance from the United States and then they will be able to stand upon their own feet.  "lr makes one’s heart ache to see the misery of the people in the cities.” said one member of the Hoover party. "The people are starved and listless. Toe whole country is like amu her world completely cut off from civilization. The people are like little children grouping in the da rk.”  The train the Hoover party came through on had to stop every little while to take on a fresh water supply as the locomotive boiler leaked badly. This is typical of all of the rolling stock in Austria and Hungary.  } Food was so scarce en route that the Hoover party took a supply of provisions with them. When they started back to Paris. Mr. Hoover  1  gave a steward on the dining car several cans of condensed milk and I a few other articles of food. It xvas I necessary, however, to give him an official ietter saying how the food had come into his possession as the officials refused to believe that a single person could come by so much I foodstuff rightfully.  Mr. Hoover was tired, dirty and dishevelled from his long journey I when he arrived here, but plunged I at once into his report which will he one of the most sensational document of its kind ever penned.  Iii addition to the scarcity of food and clothing, the lack of coal is I threatening all of the Industries in central Europe, the Hoover party said. Toe commissioners visited the market places and inquired into every strata of life. At one place in Poland a Pole who had lived in Detroit spoke to Mr. Hoover.

It is the most important committee iii either branch of congress. ordinarily, it is the ablest in the house. Its present chairman is Representative Fordney of Michigan, a republican, of course.  This commitee has been in session most of the time since congress convened, but it has accomplished practically nothing. To date, it has reported out and the house has passed the bill repealing the war tax on *oda water, hardly a necessity of life and which repeal certainly has not contributed to a reduction of the cost of the necessities of life. In addition, the house committee lias reported out some half-dozen pet bills of individual republican members, in every instance designed to rear a tariff wall around a pet industry of the author’s particular district, with no apparent regard for the national welfare.  It is in this manner that this most important committee of the house is meeting the situation that confronts the country.

If you wish to take the vaccine, all you have to do is to notify your family physician or call on him at his office. There will be no charge for the \acoine, but the physician can, of course, charge a fee for the administration of the vaccine.
