THE ANDERSON PRINTERY HIGH SCHOOLS MIGHT SOLYE CAR TROUBLES Expert Suggests That Boys Volunteer to Serve as Crews. John A. B?cler. the street railway expert who, In co-operation with the executives of the local companies. I s endeavoring to bring the service here to such a state of efficiency that the systems will be abie to more #he vastly increased traffic with leas dif ficulty. has now made an urgent plea to the heads of tha Washington Railway and Electric Company and tha Capital Traction Company. He asked them to strain every effort to obtain tha labor necesaary to man all tha cars, many of which. Mr. Beeler says, have been standing in the bams on account of the apparent Im possibility of getting conductors and motormen. Use Sehaal Roy*. "The most drastic measures are needed. If all else falls." said Mr. Beeler yesterday. "Tha suggestion has been made that women conduc tors be employed, but there has been much adverse criticism. The most feasible way of overcoming the dif ficulty is to adopt a plan successfully usad in Denver for the last fifteen years. This Is to press Into tha serv ice high school boys, whose patriot Ism would rise above the sacrifice of leisure entailed In giving two or three hours of their time every day to help the street car companies to cope with the situation. The moving of war workers as well as the normal population, back and forth to their homes and offices. Is becoming daily more difficult. In spite of all the expedients which have been recently used for improving conditions. How Richmond Beys Helped. Mr. Beeler produced a letter which he had just received from the editor of the Electric Railway Journal, tell ing how thirty high school boys of Richmond, Va., had responded to the plea of patriotism which had been is sued in that city, urging the boys to do their bit In this way. "Thirty high school boys," the let ! ter reads, "are now employed as trlp I per conductors. They are very satis factory. and they are so bright and active that they can be broken in quickly. In the second place they are natives, and so know the city streets, public buildings and so forth " Mr. W. P. Ham, vice-president of j the Washington Railway and Electric Company, when questioned as to this suggestion, admitted that the com ' pany was unable to man all its cars, | in spite of the most thorough meas ures used to obtain conductors and motormen. "We have gone so far/* said Mr. Ham, "as to print display advertisements in thirty-two country newspapers throughout the State of Maryland and Virginia, offering well paid work. These advertisements have brought inquiries, but I do not believe we shall get satisfactory re sults. in view of the universal short age of labor. Railways Willing. "As regards the employment of high school boys," Mr. Ham continued, "we would be only too glad to give this plan a trial, and we would start boys who would be willing to come to our aid and the aid of the community at this time with the regular wagea. If we could only get them for two or three hours daily, it would help greatly, and it would be patriotic work of the first order, as any one who is willing to do more work than he Is called upon to do in these days of stress in showing a praiseworthy spirit of patriotism, and doing his bit to win the war. I think Mr. Beeler's suggestion is an excellent one, and i wish some patriotic boys In Washing ton would follow the example of those thirty boys in Richmond." K. OF C. SEEKS MEN FOR OVERSEAS WORK Special Demand for Those Skilled in Construction. According to a cablegram received by the Knights of Columbus commit tee on war activities from Walter N. Kernan, commissioner with the Amer j ican army overseas, 500 men are need | ed for Knights of Columbus recrea tion work abroad. The employment of these men has been authorized by the committee, and until recruiting offices ar? opened in other cities ap plications will be received at the Washington office of the committee. Four contingents of Knights of Co lumbus chaplains and field secretaries are already at work In France. Ap plications to service as secretaries are being received from all parts of the country. The great need now Is for men who are experienced in construc tion, as It Is impossible to secure sufficent labor in France. "One of our most important prob lems Is the erection of suitable build ings," says Col. P. H. Callahan, chairman of the committee on war activities. "These buildings will be similar in every respect to those we are now operating in the American camps, and they will include many extra feaures which foreign condi tions necessitate. W# want experi enced builders, traffic managers, auto repair and operating man, warehouse men and a limited number of book keepers. Tn addition, we can use more secretaries and men who can prepare light refreshments for the boys going and oomlng from the trenches. ** It Is pointed out by the committee that men who enter this work must be willing to go to the battlefront if necesary, and to share In the hard ships that fall to the lot of tho sol diers. They must be physically strong and preferably between the ages of 40 and 50 years. Glide's Flowers Are Best for weddings and commencements. Aak for es timate and suggestions. 1214 F.?Adr.

Hattie Walker, so her landlady says, rented a room from her un der false pretenses (whatever ahe me?nt by that). And, accotding to the landlady, Hattie has been behaving scandal ously. Hattie say* it is the landlady who forgot that she was a lady and mis behaved. The upshot of It all was the two women got together and made the feathers fly. They didn't flght with their flsts. Oh, no, they fought like most girls do, with their throat muscles and vocal cords. Neither got the best of the af fair. No one had the lust word, ex cept that Hattie was arrested. She promised the court that she was going to move?which pleased the landlady very much. And after this promise became a port of the court record. Hattie gave the court $2. Maybe He Will Reform Vow. Something 1s wrong with the re form achool. John Thomas, an eighteen-year old boy, apent eighteen months out there and it didn't do him any good. He wasn't out long before he got into his old tricks again. He was swiping money right and left from his employer, the owner of a dyeing and cleaning establish ment. Not only that, he was toting a gun with plenty of spare ammuni tion. I He was getting to be a regular Gyp the Blood when Detective Wise got hold of him and put him In the cooler. John had $53 belonging to his em ployer. Some other amounts that he swiped from the safe haven't been recovered. There is also a grand jury offense .staring him in the face when he geta through his present confine ment. He couldn't give the judge any reason for taking other peoples property.

It was "some"' bunch that Po liceman Oscar Mansfield saw com ing down Four-and-a-half atreet Monday morning.

The horse could ordinarily take care of itself even if It was blind. But with a drunken driver pull ing at the reins the horse was mak ing figure "elrhta" all over the street As soon as Mansfield pulled near on his bicycle, the soldiers jumped out and each ran in a different direction. George, of course, blamed It all on the poor Innocent horse, but Mansfield knew when a horse was sober and when a man was drunk. And when George saw that he waa In a tight corner, he tried to make the court believe that he was aleepy. The weather, he said, was no hoi that he just couldn't drive straight There was nothing else for the court to do but to fine George $75 and send him down to Mr. Foster's farm for thirty days also.

Stick to the staple garden crops this i year with your mam effort in order \ to help win the war, warns today's bulletin from the National War Gar den Commission of Washington. LAst year we needed the backbone fighting crops, but this year we need ; them more than ever, so make your ! garden a real liberty staple crop gar den. There are seven main crops which are emphasised here, namely: potatoes, lima beans, snap beans, sweet corn, tomatoes, cabbage and onions. Plant generously of these and give them good care. Do not. of 1 course, neglect to plant some of the old favorites for variety sake, such as lettuce, radishes, beets, carrots amd , turnips. If necessary have these be tween the rows of the other crops Itocause they mature quickly and are OUR LINE ( ; It is a moment of tense'nerves | ?ready to slip out of the trench , at the word of command?and at the enemy. Our men on the firing ' line are physically unfit for mili tary service because only about one man out of five was chosen . to endure the hardships of this fearful war. But we must not be content with 20 per cent in phys ical health of our American youth. We cannot afford to lose four men out of five because of phys ical unfitness. Such weaknesses can be cured. Many times the kidneys are to blame. If we wish to prevent old age coming on too soon, or if we want to increase our chances for a long life. Dr. Pierce, of the Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., says that you should drink plenty of water daily between meals. Then procure at your nearest drug store Anuric (double strength.) ' This An-ur-ic drives the uric acid taken out before the main crops need the space. 1-ater 1n the ra*on as th<? main crops mature a second crop of the less important should be planted for immediate table use and for canning or drying. Not only do these home-grow i crops help solve the problem of freight congestion, but there is a lor of satisfaction in having a winter garden in cans on the pantry ihelf ready for home consumption. We must not only feed ourselves, but als? our allies, so let every gardener ft t busy on the staple crops and do h?* utmost to help win a world victory. I Any reader of the paper who has I not yet sent for a free copy of the garden primer should write at one* to the National War Garden Commis sion. of Washington, and encloee a | two-cent stamp for postage. )F DEFENSE out. If the Icidaefs are clogged with toxic poisons you suffer from stiffness in the knees in the morn ing on arising, your joints seem "rusty," you may have rheumatic pains, pain in the back, stiff neck, headaches, sometimes swollen feet or_ neuralgic pains?all due to the uric acid or toxic poisons stored in the blood and which should be swept out. If we wish to keep our kidney in the best condition a diet of milk and vegetables, with only little meat once a day. is the mo?t suitable. Drink plenty of pure water, take Anuric three times a day for a month. Step into the drug store and ask for Anuric. In tablet form. 6oc, or send Dr. Piarce ioc_ for trial package. Anuric, many times more potent than lithia, eliminates uric acid a* hot water melts suc?r. A short trial will convince you.? Adv. .
