TANK?YOUASK.I NO; A KITCHEN "Battery" on Wheels Here] Makes 250 Soldiers "Present Plates." A long line of khakl-clad aoldlera of Uncle Sam's national army, each carrying a tin cup and folding ; plate, gave an atmosphere ot war I to the neighborhood of the Quar termaster general's office on Seven teenth street at noon yesterday. Aa the trumpet sounded the weird but welcome notes of "Coffee, coffee, pork and beans," otherwise the mees call, the fighting men stepped briskly forward Into the adjoining reservation where they were greeted by the savory odor of a real soldier dinner.

This strange-appearing automobile was presided over by two stalwart fel low? in Immaculate apron? and French chef cap?. Tank The? Ohjectlv?. The men In khaki marched reso lutely towards this ?teaming "tank," bringing their cup? and plates to a aort of "present arms." The "tank" waa clearly their objective, and they came away from It with their uten sils laden with smoking viands. "What's the grand Idea?" queried a fat woman engaged In war work. "Must be feeding the new mili tary guard of the White Houle," a thin man resembling an Interroga tion mark suggested. "Naw." exclaimed a raw fellow of the know-lt-all variety, "them's army officers de-mon-strating a new-fangled cook house on wheels." In the meantime a crowd of several hundred persoti? had l?eeiv attracted by the unusual eight of the open-air cafe ?upplylng dinner fur S soldier?. One of the rifty officers wltueuslng the proceedings explained that the quartermaster general of th? army waa conducting a teat of the Taft army kitchen, with which It 1? pro posed to feed the American boya in France. "And," said President C. M Brad ford, of the Factory Product? Export Corporation of New York. "It I? pro posed with that fast-moving motor kitchen to rush hot meals to the boys in the trenches and on the firing line, instead of requiring them to eut> alat on the travel ration of hard bread and embalmed meat?."

Hege, ?ecretary of the District Council of National Defenae and in charge of the housing section, yesterday sent out G,.??? potter? asking that every householder regiater every room poaalble. "We need houeea rooms and apart ment?," ?aid M Hege "We eapecially wish rooms where light housekeeping is allowed." "We have heard that many land lord? and owners are now sending lists of dos and don't? to their ten ante of long standing. "These landlords forget that the Saulsbury law continues their con tract? in toto. The contract la not subject to change In any way. Many landlords also ?r? beginning to curtail and cut down on service and comforts formerly furnished. 'They read their contracts aa some people do their Bible?, merely the parts that please them. Thia la con trary to the Saulsbury lew. 'Heat,' hot water and all ?arvlc? formerly ?upplied rnuit be continued. It would be Juat as reasonable to re move the front steps from a house which you had rented as to cut down on any part of the thing? contracted for." Hew the Profiteer I hlnka. The attitude of mind of th? rent profiteer may be aeen from a con versation heard on th? ?treet yes terday. A young and well dressed girl, ap parently a government employe, had Just come from an appeal to a Congressman as to an alleged Injustice done to her aunt This aunt, it seems, had rented an apartment for $s" a month be fore the wer. She had "good fur niture" which ?he cherished, so she had sublet her apartment to war workers for ?1165 a month. The owner of the apartment had heard of It end protested. Finally because of pressure brought to bear the rent had been reduced to Hoe per month. She thought it an out rage. When It was pointed out that at ?165, less $47 per month, the rent for the furniture was ?1.416 per year or 6 per cent on $22.600. ?he waa unconvinced. It waa sugge?ted to her by the business man to whom she wes telklng that her furniture was pretty fair if It represented $5.900. a fourth of that outlay, end that in ?bout four year? the rent would buy the article? aerala. Still the lady w-is unconvinced as to the taimes? of $100 per month or less. ONIONS AND POTATOES FOR ARMY IN MILLIONS 33,500.000 Pounds Purchased for September Requirements. Purchases of potato*?.*? and onions for the September requirement? of the army by the subsistance division of the Quartermaster Corpa total 33, ?jM/Wf pounda. The purchase value of thrse commodities totals approx imately 1900,000. These purchases do not include approximately 3.500.000 pounds of these articles which were purchased directly by the Depot Quartermaster at San Francisco for the Pacific Coast. Savings, based on the acceptance of more favorable bids submitted di rect to the subsistence division as against bids submitted locally to the various camps and depots, total 1100. 00ft. This is a saving of 15 per cent over the prices that would have been paid without the central rurchas;..,.*; control system, as put into effect by j the Quartermaster Corps. The average price for September per ion pounds delivered at ail ramps in the Un I tad States except Pacific Const points, was JC-70 for potatoes and $2.r?S for onions. Us compared with the August price of J3.fl f,?r potatoes and 1317 for onions. The reduction in price Is due primarily to ihe increased supply of both com modities from l\e Northern produc ir-, areas and also to the more spir ited and closer competition offered j by the trade in general for this buai MML TErom tl)a>13utpit5 ?econd BaptUt Clierck.
