BY CYNTHIA Q REV
Dear Miss Grey: I have some
sls'ers, and a wounded brother
in ttie old country who are on
the verge of sturvation, where
they cannot get enough food.
Could you please tell me if I
should be allowed to send them
some food from this country?
It depends greatly upon what
country your people are In as to
whether you could send them
food. If you will consult the local
food administrator or the Red
Cross, they can advise you.
Dear Miss Grey: Wouldn't It
be a fine and patriotic Idea* to
convert the golf grounds In the
United States into war gardens
for the period of the war? Think
of the number of grounds in
the country, each containing 15
or 20 acres of good soil.
Don't you think it would be
much more patriotic for these
business men who claim they
must play golf to get outdoor
exercise to wield the hoe a few
hours dally instead of chasing
those foolish little white balls?
I was on a train the other
evening and noticed eight big
men playing golf and the
thought came to me that Uncie
Sam would a lot rather see those
big huskies hoeiug spuds.
This evening quite a few of
they boys at camp were talking
about it, and one of -them sug
gested i ii.it we ought to go down
to the grounds and plow It up
and plant spuds. One of the

Dear Miss Grey: The letters
from mon and women on flirt
ing and its attendant annoy
ances, one sex Maming the oth
er Bex, lias interested me and I
should like to add my opinion.
On account of the unprece
dented slaughter of lniin*ii
beings on the i>lanet today, na
ture is sending out her S. O. S.
■ ••i Hi* and any human being who
is at all attuned with the earth
ly life will respond to some de
gree under some conditions.
Now those forces are only vic
ious and harmful when they are
uncontrolled and misdirected.
Like the floods of a river if
turned into a proper channel
they will be a blessing to man
kind; but if allowed to run
wild, will wreck and devastate
a man's life or a nation's.
There is a lot more I could
say—but "A word to the wise Is
sufficient." Think it over. Go
out of doors and look at the
beautiful spring, nature is
bringing forth abundantly.
"Call not that which the Lord
hath made, unclean."
There was considerable alarm
for a short while Thursday night
when a call from the Seaborn
shipyards was received at the
firo station on tho tideflats near
the St. Paul mill, statiug that the
fire had broken out afresh in'
some of he oakum where the aft
ernoon fire started.
No. 12 wagon was immediately
rushed to the scene. The blaze
was not as serious as was at first
supposed. A small three-gallon
chemical fire apparatus was suf
ficient to extinguish the flames.
It was learned at fire head
quarters r^riday morning that
several complaints have been re-'
celved recently about fire eondi- 1
tions along the waterfront, espe-:
dally in the district surrounding
the Tacoma shipyards.
