The next teachers' examination will
be held at Pickens court house, Friday,
May 3, 1918.*
I would like to urge that all the
teachers in the county look after their
certificates and see that they do not
expire. If they will expire soon it
might be well for you to prepare to
stand the examination in May.
On account of there being such a
shortage of labor, I would like to urge
that those who are thinking of teach
ing sometime in the- future to be sure
and stand this examination. It might
become a patriotic duty to help out in
the school work.

Food Administration Outlines
Policy to Meet Desperate
The National Food Administration is
anxious to impress the message of
conservation to the utmost. The peo
pie of the country at large do not ap
preciate the demand for wheat. The
Food Administration at Washington
has stressed the situation in this na
tion wide proclamation:
"If we ar.e to furnish the allies with
the necessary proportion of wheat to
maintain their war bread from now
until the next harvest, and this is a
military necessity, we must reduce
our monthly consumption to twenty
one million bushels a month as against
our normal consumption of about for
ty-two million bushels or fifty per cent
of our normal consumption, reserving
a margin for distribution to the army
and for special cases, leaves for gen
eral consumption approximately one
and one-half pounds of wheat products
weekly per person. Many of our cus
tomers are dependent upon bakers'
bread, such bread must be durable,
and therefore requires a larger pro
portion of wheat products than cereals
baked in the household. Our army
and navy requires a full allowance.
The well to do in our population can
make greater sacrifices in the con
sumption of wheat products than ea
the poor. To effect the needed sav
ings of wheat, we are wholly deepnd
ent upon the voluntary assistance of
the American people, and we do ask
that the following rules be observed:
"First, householders to use not to
exceed a total of one and one-half
pounds per week of wheat products
per person.This mens not more than
one and three-four' i pouids of Vic
tory bread contai-' the required
percentage of sul- 't.utes and about
one-half pound of c - :king flour, maca
roni, crackers, p: ry, piea, cakes,
wheat breakfast ,r'reals all com
"Second, public eating houses and
clubs to observe two wheatless days
per week, Monday and Wednesday, as
at present. In addition thereto not to
serve in the aggregate total of more
breads tuffs, macaroni, 'crackers, p;r
try, pies, cakes, wheat breakfast ce
reals, containing a total of more than
two ounces of wheat flour to any one
guest at any one meal. No wheat
products to ho served unless espe
cially ordered. Public eating estab
lishments not to buy more than six
pounds of wheat products per month
per guest thus conforming with lim
itations requested of the house
"Third, retailers to sell not more
than one-eighth of a barrel of flour to
any town customer at any one time
and not more than one-quarter of a
barrel to any country customer at any
one time, and in no case to sell wheat
produ'ets withuout sale of an equal
weight of ether cereals.
"la'ourthi, we ask the bakers and gro
cers to reduce the volume of Victory
bread sold, by delivery of the three
quarter pound loaf whore one pound
was sold heretofore, and correspond
ing proportions in other weights. We
also ask bakers not to increase the
amount of their wheat flour purchas
ed beyond -seventy per cent of the
average monthly amount purchased in
the four months prior to March first.
"Fifth, manufacturers using wheat
products for non-food purposes should
cease such use entirely.
"Sixth, there is no limit upon the
use of other cereals, flours, and meals,
corn, barley, buckwheat, potato flour,
etc. Many thousand families through
out the land are now using no wheat
products whatever, except a very
small amount for cooking purposes
and are doing so in perfect health and
satisfaction. There is no reason why
all of the American people who are
able to cook in their own households
cannot subsist perfectly well with the
use of less wheat products than one
and one-half pounds a week,
USE MORE IRISH POTATOES
In Order That They Will Not Over%

Columbia.-South Carolina can help
very materially now in the conserva,
tion of wheat by using Irish potatoes.
The produce people report to the food
administration at Columbia that there
are unusual quantities of excellent
Iiih potatoes on hand in this state
for immediate use.
it is important that theme Irish pota
tees be used so that they will net over
lap into the new crop, and because
they are the best available substitute
Potatoes are universally liked. The
food administration has been assured
that irish potatoes can be bought at
very reasonable prices from all local
market., and if they cannot be had the
food administrator at Columbia would
be please dto be advised so that any
denlcient market can be supplied.
Potatoes are an acceptable substi
tute for bread. A pound of baked
potatoes is equal in nutritive value to
seven ounces of broad, Use the per'

Dividends in W. S. S.
Charleston.-To the First National
Bank, of Florence, S. C., falls the dis
tinction of being the first bank in the
country to adopt the plan of paying
dividends to stockholders in War Sav
ings Stamps. This bank, according
to an official report received from
Washington, has set the pace for the
country in this respect, and is closely
followed by the Union National Bank,
of Columbia, which also pays stock
holders' dividends in War Savings
Stamps and Liberty Bonds. Banks all
over the country, and other concerns,
are adopting this patriotic plan.

This Is The Limit!
Charleston.-As far as is known,
only two men in South Carolina have
purchased the limit allowed to holders
of War Savings Stamps-one thou
san(l dollars' worth. Governor Rich
ard I. Manning and J. E. Wannamak
er, of St. Matthews, have purchased
War Savings Stamps to the extent of
$1,000, the limit allowved b~y law. It
is reported that a movement is on
foot to institute a Limit Club in Co
lumbia, which consists of members
who pledge themselves to purchase
during the year War Savings Stamps
to the amount of $1,000.

South Carolina Lags.
Charleston.-Tho official report is
sued from Washington shows that
of all the states in the Union, South
Carolina ranks last and least in the
sales per capita of war savings
stamps. The South Carolina commit
tee is greatly disappointed at the poor
showing which the state has made up
to the end of February, and hopes
that the men, women, and children
of the state will invest liberally and
steadily in stamps so that the stigma
may be removed from the state's

interest in WVar Savings stamps."
This is the request issued by the
South Carolina War Savings Commit
tee to government bondholders in this
state. This should also apply, the
state committee declares, to re-inveat
ment of all securities' interest into
War Savings Stamps.
"Thousands of people own governt
bonds in small -denomninations and
draw a few dollars in interest every
six mr'ha," the committee says.
"Why not re-invest these coupons
again in War Savings Stamps? The
interest of two or three dollars would

Not a Bad Idea
War Savings Stamps and Thrift
Stamps make ideal presents for birth
days, for graduation, and for all other
occasions on which it is desirable to
temember those we love.
By giving War Savings Stamps and
Thrift Stamps we not only express
our love for the recipient, but for our
country. The gilt, instead of being
something that is soon worn out, brok
en, lost or rendered wortheiss through
change of fasion, is one which con
stantly increases in value as years go
by, and remains always a reminder of
Thrift and War Savings Stamps
may be purchased in lots to suit all
purses, f'rom twenty-five cents to
$1,000, maturity value, the full amount
one person is allowed by law to hold.
They do away with~ that nerve-racking
search for cometh ing ap,"ropriate,

and will always be appreciated.
