Santa Claus to Visit Trenches,
Camps and Hospitals.
French women are busy cutting,
basting and hemming several thous
and Santa Claus costumes and mak
ing whiskers and wigs to match, for
every American camp .from the front
line to the seaports is going to have
a Christmas pageant the last week
in December at which old Santa "will
appear in person." Minstrel cos
tumes are being made also, for the
boys dearly love amateur theatricals
with the opportunity they afford for
good natured criticism of the per
formers. In six weeks one Y. M. C. A.
bureau is said to have loaned out
1,684 costumes, 110 wigs, 257 musi
cal instruments, 702 plays, 191 or
chestrations, 1,279 songs, and 1,311
sets of makeup and grease paints.
So parents, relatives and friends need
not worry because they may not fol
low the dictates of their hearts in the
matter of gifts, for the boys will be
well taken care of and the Christmas
celebration will be a meVry one. The
postmaster at Tours, in trying to
work out the distribution problem,
estimated that if every man in the
Expeditionary Forces were permitted
to receive only one 5-pound package
it would require 700 freight cars a
day for ten days to transport the
gifts from the base ports to those tc
whom they are directed. The weight
limit has been set at three pounds,

I am BO glad you smiled at me
When we said our last goodbye;
It warmed aad cheered my achinj

It took me back a, score of years
To where I, a timid child,
Turned, halting, on my way to schoo
And you waved mo OH and smiled
I've brought that smile across th

They'll give me strength to meet th

I know I'm in your constant though!
That you often kneel in prayer,
Entreating God to spare the world
And your first-bora "over there."
God bless the mothers, every one
And comfort their hearts the whih
But pour a double blessing on
These rare, brave mothers who emil

HOW to Oper&to Ga ooline ISA
In a speech delivered recently 1
fore a meeting of farmers, W. Cha
plin Robinson, Director of Oil C<
servation of the United States Fi
Administration, told a story about
farmer who gave all his horses
Uncle Sam for war work and inst*
ed a gasoline equipment. "I fin<
said the farmer, "That to get the b<
results I've got to be as kind to i
motors as I was to my horses. Gai
line horses have to be fed, groom
and bedded or else they'll go lan
A man who keeps a lame motor
his place is just as bad as the m
who works a lame horse."
With thc approach of cold weath
the wise farmer will turn his att?
tion to his machinery, and there
no item of his equipment that c
mands as much attention as his gas
line motors. A new motor, which h
been running all summer, requir
particular attention becaus? t
"shaking down" which comes wi
the first year's service is general
the most telling in the life of the m
tor. Unless it is kept in proper a
justment after the- first year's u
i it will lose from one half to oi
. third of its power.
Here are some points to obser
? in the overhauling program:
; 1. Clean carbon from cylinders ai
. plugs. Accumulated carbon is a fu
and power waster, besides the ext
wear and tear on the motor.
2. Watch piston rings. See th
they fit snugly. Badly fitting piste
rings are responsible for the loss i
r power and the waste of gasoline ai
3. Go over wiring system with sp
cial attention to timer and ignitio
4. Adjust the carburetor. Durir
cold weather a rich mixture is need(

if the mixture is made leaner. Wat<
e the exhaust and you will be able \
. determine whether you are wastir
fuel or not. A smoking exhaust ind
e oates that you are wasting gasolir
or oil or both. A sharp, snappy e:
plosion from the exhaust withoi
? smoke indicates that you are gettiri
good service in the engin?.
5. Don't fill oil cups while motor
running because it frequently caus<
spilling. Every drop of oil save
