An Associated Press despatch from Bos ton is applicable in Belfast: Women are asked not to talk about the war in public, in a statement issued by the Massachusetts woman’s commitee of the Council of National Defense Jan. 4th. It is natural, the statement says, for a woman to tell a friend of news her son or brother has written back from the front or from camp. Strangers, both men and women, have been observed making notes of these conversations, it is said, and in this way often learn the date of the sail ing of some transport or some prospective troop movement. The committee recom mends these three rules for women to follow: “Never indulge in war talk of any kind outside your own home. “Never leave about carelessly letters from men in service, which tell of possi ble movements or camp conditions. Read and destroy. “Never indulge in telephone conversa tions upon these subjects; even wires sometimes leak.” JOIN OUR I “Aluminum Club” | I A $15.00 Aluminum Kitchen 1 Set for $9.98 U and at 50c. down and 50c. per week.
