These wera the words right or wrong
that set tho fculse of New York beating
as it never beat before In a perfect fever
of Joy and' delirium. American soldiers
had won It, and, far away as they were, !

Mght of Meti, their spirit was

It was all that was . wanting the
troops' return. For that we will
have to school ourselves to valt. Mean
while TJie Sun Tobacco Fund will not
relax one effort to send over to them our
congratulations of a proud people In the
tangible shape they like tobacco. More
than ever It Is determined to make
their last Christmas abroad one of real
festivity, and the feast- must begin and
end with plenty of smokes
Meanwhile the holidays are upon us,
with the duties of love and admiration
we owe to our soldiers still, to be ful
filled. The Bun Tobacco Fund haa un
dertaken to supply them with" holiday to
bacco. -Everybody will welcome the opportu.
nlty to give to the fund which the sol.
dlers acclaim. Everybody who has al
ways meant to send money to 'the fund
to buy a soldier tobacco will hasten to
help supply .the sum 'hat will buy and
trans.hlp this desired arid necessary holi
day gift to France.
The soldiers themselves ask for these
tobacco gifts. They ask openly, as one
asks of a trusted friend a favor he .ran
not refuse, or they ask Indirectly by re
turning thanks for what they have re
ceived In the way of cigarettes and
jmoklng tobacco with the Implication
that, this supply cannot last forever, and
both are essential to a happy holiday
season. Some, more skilful still In put
ting their wishes before Tiis Sun fund
donors, are in the latest null sending
back Christmas cards!
Corporal F. 8. Tlchencr sends over a
Christmas card to Louise Morgan, a fund
donor, nnd accompanies It with bis pic
ture, showing him with two flne horses.
Christmas, 1918. he dates his letter of
thanks, saying It la from about thirty
boys who are enjoying a quantity of
cigarettes received October 19. He adds:
"We were on starvation, diet In the
smokes line when your gift arrived. In
fact, tobacco has been aa scarce as Eve's
summer raiment or theattlre of a star
of a modern revue, which wouldn't pro
vide a decent dugout for a flea. I have
been a long way from home since we
started this game, and there Is every
prospect of my being here Ifto the new
year, although in the- early, part of 1919
I hope to be at home again. With
many thanks and wishing for you 'all
that you wish for yourself. I am In

Another young olTlcer sends a Christ

"Christmas, 1918. With kindest thoughts
and nil good wishes for Xmas and the
coming year." He mails It without com

Complaints came from milk consumers
In widely different sections of the city
yesterday that it was Impossible to pur.
chase quart bottles which sell for 16
cents each, whereas there appeared to
be an abundant supply, of pints which
retail for 10" cents each, thus netting a
profit of 4 cents more on each quart.
At the offices of the Dairymen's
League at 110 West Fortieth street the
situation was attributed to a scarcity
of milk due, It was said, to the fact that
many farmers were disposing of their
cows as a result of the attitude of tho
Food Administration. It was predleted
the situation would grow steadily worse
as long as present conditions prevailed.
Htanley Mills, office manager of the
Dairymen's League, said: "The scarcity
of milk Is due to the fact that the Food
Administration has been basing the price
to the consumer, first, upon figuring what
the consumer Is to pay, then allowlnz tie
dealer his 7.2 centa a quart for handling
without questioning whether this Is a
proper charge for distribution, and then
giving the farmer what Is left
1 "This policy has created a situation
which haa caused the farmers to dispose
of their cows and naturally the flow of
milk Is largely decreased. I am not a
calamity howler but this Is only the be
ginning of the shortage. In my opinion
it will not be a question of what the
consumer has to pay for hla milk but
whether he can get It at all.
"We have tried to get the farmers to
be patriotic and not go on strike but It .
la a question If we can hold them ln ,
line much longer. Tho Injustice con-
slsts In never questioning the cost of -
distribution while allowing the producor 1
