again issuing from the kitchens of
Missouri housewives with the return
to favor of commeal. Once relegated
to a minor position, the necessity for

"While the number of cases and
"deaths from the above mentioned
diseases are somewhat less than In
other camps visited," the surgeon

The report that former .Premier
Kerensky of Russia, supported by
some thousands of troops, has ap
peared In the vicinity of Petrograd
was contained in a dispatch from
Haparanda, Sweden, at the Finnish
frontier, to the Berlingske TIdende.
The Bolshevlkl are said to have sent
troops against him.
All advices which have been re
ceived recently regarding the condi
tions in Russia have tended to show
that the Bolshevik! were strength
ening their position and were en
countering little opposition except on
the part of Cossacks in Southern Rus
sia. On these conditions It appears
hardly possible that Kerensky could
assemble a force of any size and
reach" the vicinity-ofTelrbgrad.

ARMY DRESS BU1E8-STRICT
Drafted Men at Funston Must Pay
Attention to Personal Details.
By Associated Press
CAMP FUNSTON, Kan., Dec. 19.
An Important part of the discipline in
which the national army men are be
ing trained at Camp Funston Is at
tention to dress regulations, It being
held by the military authorities that
there is close relation ibetween the
uniform and the deportment of a sol
dier. A sharp halt to carelessness in the
matter of dress, which was beginning
to be in evidence among the men ot
the draft army when they believed
they knew enough about the regula
tions relating to dress to Ignore some
ot them with impunity, was called
recently by the Issuance of orders
based on a recent communication
from General J. J. Pershing, com
mander of the American expedition
ary army In France.
General Pershing laid strong em
phasis on the military value of strict
discipline and all that leads to its
attainment, estimating as of the high
est importance in its effect on the
morals of the men, correctness of per
Thus, enlisted men were warned
here against wearing articles which
are reserved solely for the regulation
uniform of the officer. Leather leg-
gins, puttees or boots cannot properly
be worn by private. And even among
enlisted men there is a distinction
in dress, sergeants (being allowed to
wear spiral puttees except when in
Similarly, many of the knitted things
which are sent the soldiers from home
are not part ot the regulation uniform
and when worn must be concealed.
Sweaters and knitted vests must be
covered by shlrt.-blouse or overcoat
so that the men will present- uni
WAR HITS THE COLLEGES
Many Schools May Close on Account
of the Shortage of Students. '
An average decrease in attendance
of 14 per cent is the effect of the first
year of the war upon colleges and
universities throughout the country,
says a dispatch from Washington.
Loss ot tuition fees due to de
creased attendance and higher cost
of all supplies threaten to Involve
many of the smaller colleges in seri
ous financial difficulties.
The larger schools are piling up
debts with an expectation ot meeting
them after the war. Prolongation of
the war-may force some of the insti
tutions without amfcle endowment
funds or other sources ot revenue to
close their doors.
The drain on many-institutions has
been much greater than 14 per cent.
The average is kept down to this fig
ure partly through increased attend
ance of women in many schools.
Men's colleges have suffered cuts in
attendance ranging from 20 to 30 per
