Food Control Act Gets Senate
Washington, Sept. 12.-the house
bill extending the food control act
to penalize profiteering, as request
ed by President Wilson and Attor
ney General Palmer, as a means of
reducing the cost of living, was pass
ed by the senate late today and sent
In addition to penalties-$5,000
fine and two years' imprisonment
for profiteering, hoarding, destroy
ing or monopolizing of food and
other necessaries or "making an un
just or unreasonable rate of charge,'
the bill extends the law to include
wearing apparel and containers of
food, fuel, fertilizers and agricultu
ral machinery. The life of the pro
posed law would terminate upon the
proclamation of peace.
Although many senators criticiz
ed the bill and, with general ex
pressions of .reluctance grudgingly
assented to its passage without a rec
ord vote, there was virtually no op
position to the measure and only
about a dozen senators followed its
Only one amendment of substance
was made to the bill as passed by the
house-a rider proposing an official
body to supervise property rentals
in the Districtof Columbia to prevent
The senate struck out a committee
amendment, championed by Senator
Smith, democrat, Georgia, authoriz
4ng specifically the establishment by
the department of justice of "fair
price" committees and providing
that charges above the price sched-j
ules fixed by such committees should
be considered to be profiteering. As
passed, however, the bill does not
prohibit or limit the department's
plan to administer the law through
the agencies of voluntary "fair
price" committees. All of the house
provisions designed to extend the
operation of and "put teeth" in the
law were adopted by the senate.
After passing the bill the senate
adjourned till Monday.

Discharged Soldiers Must Not
Civilians and former soldiers who
have been illegally wearing the uni
form of a soldier will be arrested
and prosecuted to the full extent of
the law after September 1, orders to
arrest all men violating the Federal
statutes covering these cases, having
been issued at Camp Jackson. Only
soldiers and sailors on active duty
and soldiers and sailors who have
been discharged will wear the pre
scribed uniform and in the case of
men discharged they must not wear
the uniform after three months and
during that three months must dis
play the red chevron, noting that a
discharge has been granted, on the
Cases will be brought against
those violating the law under Sec
tions 3142 and 3478 of the penal
code and all men arrested upon au
thority of these sections will be
dealt with severely. An order pub
lished at Camp Jackson prohibiting
the wearing of the uniform except
by soldiers and sailors says in part:
"Civilians who may wish to wear
any article of the outer uniform se
cured at authorized public auction
sales must first remove the uniform
buttons and other insignia and dye
the cloth a color distinct from that
of uniforms of the United States
army or navy.
"It must be understood that the
wearing of articles of uniform se
cured in an illegal manner is forbid
den and made punishable by above
named section of revised statues and
: "After September ?, 1919, no civ
ilian will be permitted to wear the
uniform other than prescribed above
and in case of violation of this order
drastic action will be taken."
Sufferers from despondency are
apt to become discouraged and feel
that complete recovery is not to be
hope for. No one could make a great
er mistake. Hundreds have been
permanently cured by taking Cham
berlain's Tablets and can now eat
anything that they crave. These tab
lets strengthen the stomach and en
able it to perform its functions nat
urally. If you have not tried them do
so at once.
