The reports required are such as arc required of all wheat flour mills throughout the country and are in tended to furnish a basis for account ing to the government ?or profits, if any, made In excesa of those allow able? in the manufacture of flour. The company claims it has made no profit In excess of the amount allow able. The Food Administration takes no position whatever on this point,, but has penalized the company sim ply because there is no reasonable excuse for its failure to revise Its accounts in accordance with instruc tion?. The question of the reissue of the license will be taken up after re v sed accounts are rendered. NEW YORK HOTEL ARRIVALS.

By every test The Brunswick is superior, we find. All because the makers build in The Brunswick way, famous for 73 years. Brunswick Tires There is no secret in an ideal tire. All formulas, all methods are well known. A perfect tire is simply a question o? care and skill and cost. Formulas, fabrics and standards vary vastly in cost. And they vary as much in endurance. Reinforce ments, plies and thicknesses are a matter of expense. Brunswick, of all makers, has a |)olicy that we admire. This policy is to give the most for the money. Skimping is taboo. Once you put one Brunswick on your car and compare it, you'll he come a Brunswick enthusiast, too. H. C. HIBBS, 601 MassachusetU Ave. N.
