By Associated Tress

persons from the Orama, a P. & O.
liner converted into an auxiliary
cruiser October 19. The Orama had
been torpedoed by a submarine while
she was acting as part of a convoy
of merchant vessels under escort of
The Jacob Jones was one of the
convoys. She and another destroyer
were detailed to remain by the Orama
after the submarine had been at
tacked and put out of action. When
the Orama began to settle it had
grown dark and her crew abandoned
the sinking ship. The Jacob Jones
picked up in the darkness 305 of the
478 persons on board. The other
vessels standing by rescued the re
mainder of the number.
The Jacob Jones' peace time com
plement was 5 officers, 5 petty of
ficers and 87 men. She was one of
the newest 'and largest of American 1
destroyers, with a displacement of
1,150 tons and a length of 310 feet
over all. She was completed in 1916
at the plant of the New York Ship
building Company at Camden, N. J.
The vessel burned oil and was driven
by turbine engines with a maximum
speed of 29.57 knots an hour.

Food Administration Says Fighting
Forces' Needs Come First
Meats furnish not only energy to
the human system as a working ma
chine but also build up and repair the
worn-down tissues which are weaken
ed in the daily work, according to
food experts of the Federal Food Ad
ministration of Missouri. It is for
this reason that meats must not be de
nied to our soldiers and sailors, for
theirs Is a duty that demands a con
stant expenditure of energy and a con
stant upbuilding of weakened tissues,
the experts declare.
Meats in abundance may be furnish
ed to the fighting units of the nation
and the others across in France only
by concerted conservation upon the
part of the American people in their
homes and in public eating places.
Success In the present war will be
largely based upon economy and con
servation at home. It has been said
that this war "may be won in the
"Many people eat too much meat,"
Miss Bab Bell, of the Missouri Col
lege of Agriculture declares. "Now
that we are being asked to conserve
meats it is our duty to use the substi
tutes even when wc do not find them
a real economy. Health will also re
sult from a lesser use of meats.
"The foods classed as meat substi
tutes are milk, eggs, cheese, nuts, beans
and peas. The composition of these
foods make them adaptable for this
use since they contain the same energy
giving and tissue building properties
as the meats.
SECOND HOXOR CAMP STARTED
Prisoners Are Making Roads Near
Kennett In Dunklin County.
The second honor road camp In
Missouri, providing work for twenty
five prisoners from the state peniten
tiary, has been established at Kennett,
Dunklin County. The state road under
construction extends east from the
Arkansas states line through Kennett
to the Pemiscot County line, a dig.
tance of eight miles, and a project to
now under consideration to extend tke
road twelve miles east through Haytl
to Caruthersvllle. An idea of the tm
portance of this road is gained fro
the fact that it is now necessary to
drive a distance of more than 125 milei
around a swamp in order to travel by
wagon or auto from Kennett to Haytl.
When this road is constructed the dis
tance will be twenty miles, as straight
as a crow flies, and there will be a
heavy tonnage pass over the road to
shipping points on the Mississippi RiT.
Federal Control Not Necessary!
By Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Dec. S. The rail
road presidents composing theRall
road War Board today informed
Chairman Newlands, head of the con
gressional committee dealing with
transportation problems, that if Con
gress removed the legal prohibition
which forbids the unification of the
roads for war emergency. Govern
ment operation would be unnecessary.
