Being common protects us all from
a lot of harm.

the rooster quite yet.

a hell of a way to settle a dispute.

If Hoover will see to it that all
vegetables and fruits raised this year
are really put on the market and
not dumped in the rivers or left to
rot In the fields, he will have done
much to relieve the food situation.
One of the reasons men have more
bad habits than women, is because
they have so many pockets. If . a
man had to carry his purse in one
hand and his handkerchief and all
other necessities in the other, he
wouldn't have any place for a cigar

Mr. Baker who marched the gen
eral staff up the hill, has gratefully
marched it down again. It cannot
be said that the process was of much
benefit to the general staff, but
hardly anyone would deny that even
that sort of exercise would be fine
stuff for the aggregation of miss-
oacus constituting the
own "superior council."
The nub of the whole anxiety In
the country with regard to the gov
ernment's war activities is the pres
ident's refusal to call to his assist
ance the brains and vigor of the
country the really strong men of
the country. Unless congress can
receive assurance that, he has seen
a light in that connection, it would
be folly to try meeting The situation
by merely conferring still more
dictatorial powers in the president. It
Is a ust question to ask whether the
president, if given the unlimited
powers sought In the Overman bill,
means to use them for the right sort
THE ZERO HOUR.
With the genius for definition that
is not the least of the byproducts of
war, the British soldier long ago
named the moment of the order to go
over the top "zero hour." Long be
fore that moment came he was noti
fied of it,' and he waited through the
night, ordinarily, for the hands of his
Illuminated watch to reach the
hour.' When they did that, the
tumult of artillery gave place o a
hush. The whistles of sergeants
were heard. The artillery, lifted to
some line farther in the rear, opened
igaln. And Tommy charged.
There is fatalism, a little of the
cynic, considerable humor and unlim
ited human philosophy In the term
that Tommy devised. Perhaps the
placing of a cipher by some general
at the sign of the hour he had chosen
gave rise to the expression. Perhaps
a nervous trench jest, turning on the
chill of fear, was responsible. But
with quick aptitude, whatever the
occasion, Tommy seized It. And the
hour of supreme test, the hour of
cool facing of grave and undeterm
inable things, became the zero hour.
But zero hours existed long before
they were named. And they exist
in all walks of life as well as in the
trenches. The body has its zero
hours, and so does-the mind. The
soul has many of them. It is
zero hour for the stricken man
who is carried to a hospital opera
ting room, though he be thousands of
miles from war. It Is zero hour for
the criminal about whom the prison
walls close, or for whom the sudden
fling into eternity is prepared. When
anxieties and perplexities come to a
focus and corapell an Irrevocable de
cision, that is zero hour for ' the
mind, and the depression that is felt
and the courage that Is sometimes
required are not to be thought of
lightly. And there are moral tests,
too, when the man or woman, the boy
or girl, must choose, perhaps for all
time, one way or another to walk in.
It is zero hour then, too.
After all there is an advantage in
the zero hour that comes with full
forewarning, as it comes to the boy
in the trenches, over the zero hour
that strikes with more or less sud
denness, and by surprise. Courage
alone will meet the one test manlike,
but much more than courage Is re
quired when the unanticipated be
falls. No matter what success you have
met in life, the chances are that your
own inner satisfactions or great re
grets, are founded on the way you
have met your zero hours. Is It not
The following from the Chicago
Post meets our approval and gives us
pleasure. We consider Theodore
Roosevent America's greatest states
man. Read what the Post says and
All day long the wires have been
kept busy, all day long the telephone
bells have been ringing.
The question has always been the
same: "How's Teddy? What's that?
Better? Out of danger, you think?
Thank God for that! We need him.
We need him now more than we ever
A chorus of anxiety, of apprehen
sion, of dread. A chorus of praise
for this red blooded American. A
chorus of regret and this was very
marked that no place could be
found for his energies, his gifts, his
great influence; that, because his ut
terance was forthright, it was sought
to keep him silent; that because
first among prominent Americans
he had raised his voice for prepared
ness and the vindication of the law,
the defense of America's rights, he
must suffer from a campaign of de
traction. Democratic speakers and Demo
cratic newspapers have assailed
Roosevelt as 'a man on horseback,"
a "marplot," a "firebrand," a "fo-
menter of trouble." The president,
himself has given us to understand
that he was "dangerous, passionate
They see more clearly now. They
perceive that, precisely as Cleveland's
stand against European aggression in
Venezuela made his administration
memorable, so, likewise, under
Roosevelt the "irresponsible and j
warlike" Roosevelt American di
plomacy reached its highest and most
useful manifestation. He did not
plunge us into war. He did actually
keep us out of war. And he did so
because back of his words stood the
man himself; because he held Ger
many to respect of the Monroe Doc
trine; because he compelled the
kaiser to withdraw his pretentions
and submit to arbitration; because,
as Baron do Constant said, he gave
Europe four striking lessons. He
was prompt, clear, unchanging.
Every nation knew exactly what he
meant and knew that back of him
was determination, not flabbiness.
That was a knowledge that made for
It was said of him: "He did not
avoid war. He saw it coming and
went out to meet it and fetched it a
watchful wallop across the brow and
left it dead."
This is the man about whom the
people have been worrying. They
were thinking of him as a man and
a citizen, as president and embodi
ment of public spirit. They remem
bered his fine resiliency; his grit,
his manliness; his hearty love for
what was big and burly and up
building. They knew not why he
could not attend the funeral of "John
L.;" they understand that when he
was being twitted with running away
from Washington he was on his way
to a hospital and, about to submit to
a dangerous operation.
Teddy will get well. Great Is the
relief. Why? Because, In his own
way, he is first In the hearts of his

The saving of food and the use of
other foods in the place of those
which are so necessary for the win
ning of the war is the duty of all
who. must stay home and it is by
carrying out the plans of your Food
Administration that you can and will
be able to help win the war by this
nnpannril t'r"vlr Tt rw r tt c oam a a tit oil
matter, but It' is just these little
things that count, and help lighten
the war burdens of your Government
just that much.
Those who eat as the Food Admin
istration asks them are really help
ing the soldier to fight. Are you a
When you are at the market, in the
kitchen, or at the dinner tahle, what
are you doing to help In this war?
While the soldiers are fighting the
Germans let us fight wastefulness
and extravagance In "the use of wheat,
meat, fats and sugar.
You signed the pledge and became
a member of the United States Food
Administration; are you a loyal mem
ber of the Food Administration?
The civilized world today Is-at war
to make it possible that governments
In which the people rule shall be al
lowed to exist. The amount of dem
ocracy In various countries depends
upon the people, and the success of
this world war depends' upon all the
people doing all the things which all
the people want done that the peo
ple's government shall not perish.
The people of the democratic govern
ments are asked to co-operate, each
helping the other by voluntary self
sacrifice. The United States Food
Administration is asking the people
to do just one thing, and that Is to
help conserve our food supply for
our soldiers and our associates In
this war. This Is one of the duties
of every person in this country, and
unless we do this the brfa "over
there" will have a more difficult tasi'c.
to "go over the top" as victors.
The next time you go to the gro
cery store, it Is your duty to make
inquiry as to whether the owners are
members of the United States Food
Administration and have signed the
retail stores pledge. The success of
the work of the Food Administration
and the success of the war largely
depends upon the. American woman.
All Americans will now eat accord
ing to the following program:
MONDAY: Wheatless One meat
TUESDAY: Meatless .A wheatless
WEDNESDAY: Wheatless A meat
THURSDAY: A meatless meal. A
meatless meal. A
Porkless A wheat

You are beginning to read in the
papers reports of our soldier hoys
being drowned, killed or wounded.
Think of what the. news means to
friends and relatives of those who
have lost their lives that you and
all of the civilized peoples shall be
free from the rule of the German
Government. When you save wheat,
meat, fats and sugar you are helping
to end jthls war and .to save the
lives of many of our soldiers.
Now is the time to begin making
plans for your garden. Get your
seeds early and avoid. the rush. The
little gardens last year in the back
yards or on the vacant lots all of
these little gardens helped to. pre
vent a serious food shortage. Each
garden was small but the amount of
food produced hy all of the little
war gardens was enormous.
When you 'buy flour and are Com
pelled at the same time to purchase
pn emiial. number of pounds of some
corenl or cereals, It. Is a blessing in
disguise, for you and for the world.
Like a good American, do it willingly
because you are helping to feed th"
hungry people in Europe and our
soldiers, some of whom may be your

after you have carried out the re
quests of the United States Food Ad;

of the leaves, and the singing of the
birds, the mourn of the turtle dove,
the cackling of hens in the barnyard,
the crowing of roosters and the

the bad weather has passed and the
