OF CHURCH CLUB
Members of th Men's Club nf the
ML Pleasant ConBreg-atlonal Church
ware treated to a demonstration of c
"cartoons In the making" by Congress
man Baer at the church clubrooms
Mr. Baer, ho Is known as the
'Tanner Congressman." and whose
cartoons appear exclusively In The
Times, drew a number of cartoons
ror the members In his own original
style. He first showed a hos and
then by adding lines and strokes
showed its evolution Into a profiteer
ing merchant. Other features of the
evening were his transforming of an
eagle Into Uncle Sam and a lemon Into
Following the cartoons he gave a
patriotic talk. "In a democratic land
pverjbody is a king, although there
are no crowns worn," he said, "on
1 have so many priceless things In
America that they don't have In for
eign lands. Freedom, liberty. Justice
for all, ana no class aisuncuon are
only a few of the things. Because of
this we should all be willing to ugm
for the principles that meant so much
to our forefathers and mean so much
in tia. Our forefathers had no heslta-
ilen about going out to die for these!
principles and we snouia nave no
hesitancy about making any sacri
fice for them."
Tr. Iflrman F Kebler, president of
the club, gave an illustrated lecture
on food conservation, the nutritive
values of foods, why we need to Bend
certain foods to our allies, and other
tqplcs of interest to those who will

Another Step Forward
Ever on the alert for practical busi
ness devices that will enable us to give
our customers the most efficient serv
ice possible, we, have completely
equipped our Yard Goods Depart
ments with -
A machine that humanizes the meas
uring of GOODS.
With it a' salesperson can measure
off the desired amount of material, ac
curately and more rapidly than by the
old way of using tacks or yardsticks.
A Saving of Time for Both Customer
and Our Salespeople.
Further when the measurement
has been made, the amount of the sale
or what the customer is to pay is found
on a revolving cylinder, directly oppo
site the price per yard of the material
that is being measured.
This saves the time that would oth
erwise be consumed in figuring the
cost of the same with pencil and paper,
or even mentally.
Then when the yardage is run
through the machine, the pressure of a
button makes a notch in the edge "of
the fabric and indicates where it is to
be cut off. , v
We are confident our customers will
appreciate the installation of these ma
chines because it will enable our sales
people in the yard goods sections, to
wait on them more quickly and with
