often asked than this: "Why can't

This question Is an Interesting one
and deserves attention because it im
plies that the speaker has reached a'
stage of thinking about the war and
his relation to it. I say "his" ad
visedly, because the men are not so
willing to accept new dishes as the
women. They conduct their experi
ments by day in other lines than food
and prefer to eat in regular fashion
at home at night.
A great step in advance has been
made toward winning the war if we

report on the condition of Ga-be-nah-

replied as follows:
"I am in receipt of yours relating
to the aged Indian known as Ga-be-nah-gewn-wonce,
also known as John
Smith by those who are unable to
pronounce his Indian name.
"No events have transpired in his,
life during th last two years worthy
of being added to the sketch written
for the Associated Press, except per
haps the fact that shortly after the
sketch was prepared he was run over
by a switch engine in the Great
Northern railroad yards here. He
was badly shaken and was picked up
and taken to our local hospital for
medical treatment. He refused to oc
cupy a bed while in the hospital and.
rolling himself up In a blanket, he
lay on the floor during all the two
weeks he was confined there.
"You ask we to telegraph you in
the event of his death. I will do so
providing he dtes before I do."

Slusher played 390 minutes out of a
possible 480 during the season the
only man who played anywhere near
him, as far as the time consderation
is considered being Captain Paul

was in the game 270 minutes of the

There are several; excellent rea
sons why the United States does not
send corn to- France.
In the first place, because of the
character of the meal. The large
amount of fat in corn meal contrib
utes to its food value but also de
tracts from its keeping qualities. The
fat is likely to grow rancid in the
Second, the United States does not
send whole corn to France because
Third, the French for years have
not done the baking at home and so
they have no household equipment for
that kind of work.
It takes little Imagination for the
American housewife to realize what a
difficult undertaking it would be In
the midst of the war and the suffer
ing and the general upset of every
kind of relationship for the French
women to begin-a totally new experi
ment now in the way of baking.
Three days' absence of a maid from
some American households Is quite
sufficient to produce a panic, and the
thought of this ought to enable any
one to understand how entirely un
reasonable it is to expect the French
woman who is doing all sorts of un
expected work and bearing all sorts
of burdens to add this entirely new
experiment In housekeeping.
Furthermore, those who demand
the reason why our Allies cannot
themselves eat the substitutes rather
than we, should know that the Euro
pean nations are already mixing with
their wheat flour a larger proportion,
of other flours than we Americans are
asked to use: and as much In most
cases as it is practicable to employ.
Keep on asking questions as to
"why the Food Administration is
making certain requests,' because
your Interest will grow with knowl
edge and you will understand tnt
eating corn meal products is nothing
in comparison with starving in Bel
glum or dying In France.
