For the purpose of stopping the
wholesale theft of automobiles prin-
cipally, and other property through-
ut the country, a meeting has been
called for January 7 at Oklahoma City
when police chiefs, sheriffs and other
peace officers are urged to meet and
organize a clearing house for the re-
| covery of stolen property.
j Officers in Drumright have received
notice of the meeting. They are be-
ing sent out by Police Chief Nichols
f Oklahoma City, originator of the
! alar, who got it* endorsement before
: he convention of police chiefs in
-Vashington a few weeks ago.
The notice ftaes that all officers
' ho have investigated the plan be-
iev ethe clearing house will do more
towards recovering stolen property,
I especially automobiles, than any
| other method devised by officers.

Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 27.—The
Kansas City naval recruiting office is
making a strong effort to obtain 192
men for the naval flying corps but to
date only 70 have been enlisted in this
branch of the service here. Mechani-
cians are sought, men with some ex-
perience as carpenters, woodworkers,
machinist*, coppersmiths, black-
smiths, fabric workers, acetylene
welders, gas engine men and instru-
ment makers. These members of the
Hying corps will be enlisted like any
other sailors but their duties will in
no wise entail their actual flying or
performing the duties of a pilot.
"From our records it would ap-
pear welders are the scarcest skilled
mechanics in this section of the coun-
try just now," said Lieut. Ralph B.
Campbell, aide to Commadore J. M.
Orchard in charge of the recruiting
office. "On the other hand, in pro-
I potrion to the number of men wanted,
| capable carpenters are the most dif-
ficult for us to obtain. We need
coperemiths, blacksmiths, instrument
makers and gas engine men especially
just now and men who can prove
their experience and qualifications
will be sent right into active service.
It is an excellent chance for the men
who want to get action at once in this
branch of the navy service."

Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 27.—An
army of some 5,000 knitters, includ-
ing a few men and one 13-year-old
! boy, has undertaken the task assigned
to the Kansas City district of the Red
Cross society of producing 4,500
"sets" of warm garments for the
American fighting forces. Each
"set" is composed of a knitted scarf,
| wristlets, pair of socks and sweater,
all made of the same soft gray yarn.
The Kansas City district embraces all
of Kansas City, Mo.
The work, which is under the direc-
tion of the "Supplies For Fighting
Men Committee," of which Mrs.
George W. Fuller is chairman, was to
have been completed by December 1,
but owing to the delay in securing
supplies of yam it is now only about
half completed and every effort is be-
i ing made to finish the assignment by
the middle of January.
j The committee had 15,000 pounds
; of yarn on hand at one time with
. which to produce the garments so
much needed by sailors and soldiers.
None of this yarn is sold but knitters
are required to deposit 65 cents for
every hank taken for use to protect
the society against loss, the money
being refunded when the completed
garments are turned in. Each article
is subject to a rigid inspection and
many that would pass as perfect in
stores are ravelled out because of un-
skilled workmanship that shows in

Manila, Dec. 27.—Reformation of
the Philippine currency system is
provided for in a (Currency bill passed
by the Philippine house and which
sems certain of passage by the sen-
ate. It must be submitted to the
president for final approval. It pro-
poses to reduce the weight of the
bullion in Philippine currency to the
standard of the United States, thus
avoiding the danger which menaced
the islands recently when the value of
the actual silver in the peso reached
20 per cent above the nominal value
while the bullion value of subsidiary
silver coins was dangerously near the
The bill also provides for the issue
by the government of paper notes of
the value of one peso. The lowest de-
nomination bill heretofore issued by
the government is of two pesos.
