What the School Child Should Eat Fruits and vegetables should have a place in the diet of the growing child—but not all fruits nor all vege tables are fit food for children. Uncle Sam’s expert dietician tells the moth ers who read The Times tome of the vegetables to be avoided. BY UNCLE SAM. (Prepared as follows by a food axport of the United Btatea Depart ment of Agriculture.) Vegetable* that are commonly eaten cabbage and radishes — are not suitable food for young chil dren; many physicians forbid carrots, turnips and parsnips, but when we consider the value of vegetables aa food, perhaps the important thing to do it to sss that those served are fresh and thoroughly cooked, and served without rich sauces. Fried potatoes should never be giv en to children. Boiled or c roomed po tatoes or baked !>otatoet are much more wholesome. Freshly cooked fruit*—berries, peaches, and pears, for example—ere a neglected Item of diet considering their safety, wholesomenees, and pal atabUlty. Tbe use of freshly stewed fruit in the place of raw fruit in sum mer would probably greatly reduce the amount of intestinal difficulties. Stewed fruits with lice and milk make a wholesome sapper. VET-DRY FIGHT IS BIG ISSUE IN COLORADO Both Sides Make Cocksure Pre dictions—Much Bitterness is Developed TRAVELING MEN SAY DRYS ARE IN LEAD Prohibition Means Closing of All Saloons in State by January I, of 1916 DENVER. Col.. Oct. 27.—Colorado Is certain to go “dry." Colorado is certain to go “wet.” These are the cock-sure previictlons made toduy respectively by leaders of the anti-saloon forces and the anti liquor Interests In a forecast of the result of the prohibition campaign in Colorado. The liquor question is rap idly becoming one of the overshadow ing issues of the political campaign, and it has developed unprecedented bitterness. ‘Dry** leaders declare traveling men, who are in a position to learn the sentiment in all parts of the state, are almost a unit in their belief that the saloons are going to be voted out. Liquor interests say this contention is absurd and that the “wet” plural ity will be not less than 20,000. The betting odds seem to favor this con tention. as three to one is freely of fered in Denver that prohibition will be defeated. Liquor Interests assert that, how ever the rest of the state may go, Den ver and Pueblo counties, the two most populous in the state, will go “wet” by overwhelming pluralities. The prohibition issue during the past few weeks has found its way into the gubernatorial tight. George Carl son. Republican candidate for gov ernor. has championed the cause of the “dry*” and declared for prohibi tion. If prohibition passes, all saloons will close Jan. 1.

FROM DAY 10 DAY BY J. W. T. MASON. (Parmer Bwrepeaa Nauaw el the , l ajteg Prtea.l NEW YORK. Oct. 17.-Hll *• m.) —The fighting In western Bel gium Is the most desperate of the war, excepting only tho attempt of the Germans to hack their way to Parle during August There U no apparent strategic reason for the mighty effort Germany la put ting forth to secure control of the North Sea ancLchauncl coaat line. No effective attack can be made on England from tho tvran co-Belgian littoral as loug as the British fleet remains in being. If it ee destroyed. England Is at Germany's mercy. Her food Im ports would cease automatically. A raid by Zeppelins on Eng land cannot be the objective of Germany’s efforts to gain the coast. Zeppelin stations In the interior are more advantageous than along the sea front, because of added secrecy. As there are no military advantages on the surface or above the surface asso ciated with the capture of the coast towns, so there are none below the surface. The purpose of Germany's submarine attacks h« exclusively to destroy the en emy’s snips. The distance Is shorter from the German coast to British warship stations than trim the Franco-Belgian sea frout, and economy of distance is of the utmost Importance to jub marines, whose radius of action is limited. At most, the occupation of Dun kirk. Calais and Boulogne by Germany would compel England to lengthen her lines of commun ication by shipping men and sup plies to a more distant French port. There is, however, one very im portant reason why Germany should think it worth while to fight U* desperately as she Is do ing for possession of the coast. Permanent occupation of the Franco-Belgian ports is the only way under present circumstances, Germany can bring any effective pressure to bear upon England in the peace conference after the war.
