and felt inner soles are doomed unless
the felt manufacturers have on hand
necessary raw materials to supply
the felt for these purposes, the War

Based on the decision of the boot
and shoe section that felt for box toes
in shoes is essential and for heel pads
section of the War Industries Board
will grant permits to the felt manu
facturers to produce felts for these
purpose for the time being.
Such permits will be issued based
on these contingencies:
1. That the felt manufacturers have
on hand the raw materials necessary
for the manufacture of felts for such
purposes, as the Government has no
raw materials available which could
be allotted to the felt mills for this
2. That the manufacturer of such
felts will not cause he felt mills to
defer or delay in any way fulfillment
of any Government orders, direct or in
direct, which they have on hand at
the present time, or any which may be
placed with them at some future time

Only 797 tons of refined sugar were

HOUSEWIVES OF AMERICA
HAVE HELPED GREATLY
IN FEEDING OUR ALLIES
This statement in regard to the
Food Administration was made recent
ly by Representative Henry D. Flood
The w ar w ould have been lost if the
Allies had not been fed; and it was
through the efforts of the United
States Food Administration that they
were sustained during the trying
days when our nation was preparing
itself to put an immense army in the
field with them m the fight for de
mocracy. I am not exaggerating
when I say that no agency of the gov
ernment has done more to assure vic
tory for our cause than the Food Ad
ministration. One of the most wonderful things
ever acomplished in this country was
the campaign of universal voluntary
food saving conducted by the whole
American people at the instance of
Herbert Hoover. As a result of it
vast quantities of meat, grain and
sugar have been sent overseas .while
we at home have hot suffered any
leal depiivation. By it the idea of
individual self-sacrifice to help win the
war has been carried into every, nook
and corner of the nation. The Ameri
can housewife, whose savings in the
home seemed insignificant when view
ed alone, has come to realize what a
a mighty force the combined efforts
of 22,000 housewives developed into
after the food message had been
brought home to them.
When the pinch of hunger was ac
ute in Europe last winter, England at
the time only had three weeks' supply
of food on hand. Submarinesweremak
ing havoc among the food ships and
rail congestion in this country had
halted supplies for the Allies that
could nt be carried to tidewater. The
Allies needed 75,000,000 bushels more
of wheat to carry them over. Am
erica's exportable surplus, 20,000,000
bushels ,already had been sent. The
Allies were desperate; they believed
their cause to be lost.
Then the Food Administration issu
ed its calico save wheat; hundreds of
thousands of families went on a wheat
less basis altogether; housewives used
substitutes cheerfully and faithfully.
As a result our total wheat exports
to Europe were 141,000,000 bushels.
We sent it because we saved it.
Knowing how well it has served
them in the past ,the people of the
nation are confident that the Food Ad
ministration will continue so to man
age the country's food resources that
the millions of fighting men we are
sending to Europe will be fed and
the Allies will be sustained until the
final victory ,that will crown our

Loan campaign, which will be general

have displayed as far as available, the
flags of the various nations on the
specified dates and to have the Four

BUILT WITH AID
OF CEMENT GUNS
In building a reinforced-concrete
barge, the Los Angeles Harbor Com
mission has made use of air guns,
spraying the cement against the walls
formed of reinforcing rods and wire,
says the October Popular Mechanics
Magazine in an illustrated article.
The plan is one that is commonly
used for other kinds of work, but its
application to barge and boat building
except perhaps for applying finishing
touches, is not general. During con
struction the barge was blocked on its
ways so that when completed a heavy
truck could bo run on rails beneath it.
Upon being lowered to the latter, it
was moved into the water and allowed
to float free.
Let's remember in this sugar fight
that the motto of Foch is "Attack,"
and the method of our boys, "Fight
as long as the fighting is good and
then some more." So "Up and at

An entirely automatic dishwashing
and drying machine is shown in the
October; Popular Mechanics Magazine.
It is quite unusual in that it per
forms its complete operation without
requiring any supervision. Inside of
a cylindrical tank racks are provided
which enable dishes to be stacked
radially from the center. After this
is done a gas burner beneath the ma
chine is ignited, and the top of the
tank closed. Hot water is then forc
ed under preasure through a whirling
head and sprayed on the dishes. At
the expiration of a definite interval,
the water is automatically shut off
and a blower started. Air, heated by
the gas flame is forced over the dishes
quickly drying them. Simultaneous
ly a drain in the bottom of the tank
is opened and the used water dis
charged. Thus, after the dishes have
once been stacked in the machine and
the gas lighted, the housewife's at
tention is not required until it is time
to remove the cleaned and dried
dishes and put them away.
ARMY DEATH RATE FOR
DISEASE ONLY 2.18
PER 1,000 ANNUALLY
The War Department authorizes the
following statement from the office of
the Surgeon General:
American troops both here and over
seas continue to establish good health
records. For the two months' period
ending August 31 the combined re-1
ports of the American Expeditionary
Forces andj all troops stationed in the
United States show an annual death
rate for disease of 2.18 per 1,000 a,
fraction more than 2 men per 1,000 1
per year. ihe annual death rate fori
disease of men of military age in civil
life is 6.77 per 1,000. '
The combined reports show that gen
erally the health of the soldiers over
seas is better than that shown by the
men in the training camps in this
country. This is largely due to the J
fact that only men in the best physical i
condition are being sent to France,
with the result that the reports of the
