Adopting an opinion prepared by
Justice Moore Just prior to his death
last September and crediting the late
jurist therewith, Chief Justice Mc-
Bride today Affirmed the decision of
Judge J, W. Hamilton of the Douglas
county circcuit court in the case of
A. H. Wright vs. L. Wimberly in no-
holding the validity of the state law
prohibiting the collection of a defi
ciency Judgment on. a. purchase price
Wright had filed suit againg Wim
berly in the Douglas county circuit
court to recover money on a prom
issory note for $3000 secured by a
mortgage. Judge Hamilton ordered
the lien foreclosed to satisfy the claim
but refused to give a deficiency Judg
ment. After selling the property on
order of the court and deduotlng
costs Incident thereto the ' balance,
$1909, was indorsed on the promis
sory note. Allowing credit for this
amount as a voluntary payment ac
tion was instituted to recover the bal
ance due on the $3000 note, with In
terest, which action was dismissed by
the Douglas county court, the su
preme court today affirming the ac
tion of Judee Hamilton.
Justices Bennett, Harris and Bur
nett while especially concurring with
Chief Justice McBrlde, who quotes In
full the opinion prepared by the late
Justice Moore on the case, hold that
there never has been such a thing as
a deficiency judgment in this state
and that, therefore, the law upon
which the opinion is based is mean
ingless and effectual.
JueUcjsMeBride, Bean, Johns and

Editor Of Gary Post Declares
Few Items Relative To Big
Steel Strike Censored By
Methods Of Regular Army In
Dealing With ?Redsr Among
Strikers Is Described In De
tail By Snyder.
By Henry Burgess Snyder
(Editor of the Gary, Ind., Evening
' ' Post.) ' .,
(Written for the United Press.)
Gary, Ind., Oct. 21. There has oeira
very little actual suppression of news
during military control at Gary. The
newspapers were ordered at first to
publish no news of raids on radicals,
but later the military decided that mil
itary control rather than martial law
was in effect and the order; was
changed to a request, .With one or
two exceptions, the request has been
complied with.' " '
The desire for secrecy In the army's
dealings wtih radicals is based on the
fact that new leads to further raids
were being unearthed. ' It the facts of
the raids are made public, the military
fear that some of their quarry would
seek other fields.
And the army is not Interested In
chasing reds out of Gary. It wants to
deport them. General Leonard Wood,
who is actually In charge of the Gary
situation, has very strong feelings re
garding the treatment that should be
meted out to radicals who are trying
to undermine the government.
There can be no question that the
situation demanded attention. This is
a free country hut we shall have to get,
over the Impression that it. is free for
every agitated foreigner to tear down,
I do not see how we can do without
the army in crisis such as this. There
Is no dther agency to step in and bring
order out of a threatened chaos. Spe
cial police will not; neither will the
militia. ' Both were tried out in Gary
and labor was very antagonistic to
both. When the regulars rolled In by
motor truck they were received with
cheers by the strikers. Many of the
strikers had been in the army and
they felt they would get a square deal.
Whether this feeling will continue,
only the course of the strike will tell.
Even now some of the more radical la
bor leaders are charging -General
Wood is playing politics.
But this charge on the part of radi
cals is easily understood. The army
has followed every radical lead and
has raided dozens of houses and meet
ing places. "Rout out the reds" is ths
slogan and a force of Intelligence of
fice men are on the Job day and night.
Each night dozens of suspects are
brought in for examination. They are
all men of alien birth. It is no un
common occurrence for them to hand
ut a union card with one hand and
an I. V,'. W. membership card with an
other. !Jany of them are so ignorant
they do not know ihe gulf between
tho 1 W. W. and the A. F. of L.
That 's the problem of Gary today
as it i the problem of other industrial
centers. And It is a problem that can
oply be solved by the army as the sit
uation now stands. Conservative lead
ers know this.
The Central Labor Union News, or
gan of organized labor, in Gary said
"The army authorities cante to Gary
at opportune tim&. This has been the
fairest and best Imaginable. The tra
ditions of the army have been built
upon methods of absolute Justice to

such a way that no one can complain.
