his wife, who is especially depressed
owing to the tac t that a strike lias left

"I have been called a food dictator."
said Mr. Hoover tonight, "but that Is
incorrect. What I am here for is to

tendent' J. U. Williams lias already

Under the direction or school au

The pupils will contribute their labor
to the cause, so that when the crop lias
been sold the profits can lie turned
over to some war fund.
"The garden work has taken from
the ordinary sehool routine all an

Williams yesterday. "As long as their
arithmetic problems have to do with
gardening the pupils work them glee

pupils how tunny hills of potatoes
could lie planted in an aero. No one
