A scanty flow—a slowine-up may cause sick headaches, bowel sluggishness and so called bilious indigestion with its half sirk. sour feeling. If you suffer from such symptoms because you need more bile released from the gall-bladder, try world famous Kruschen Salts. Get a bottle tonight —start right in tomorrow morning and take as much as will lie on a dime in a glass of water (hot or cold) half an hour before breakfast, or in your morning cud of tea or coffee, and keep it up for 30 days, don't miss a morn ing and note the results for yourself. You can get Kruschen. a famous Eng lish formula made In the U. S. A at any drug store. You must be satisfied or money back. CONSTIPATION SUFFERERS Note: For an occasional cathartic or purga tive to relieve common constination. we believe there is nothing better than quick-acting Kruschen in larger doses —try it according to directions on the bottle. WARNING moths NOW IATINC WOOIENS Ship Seizure Attempt To Bring Sabotage Order, Vichy Warns Handing Over of Vessels At Martinique Ruled Out By Authorized French Bj tbi Associated Pr»»«. VICHY, Unoccupied France, May 18.—Authorized French aources by Implication,' warned the United States yesterday that any effort to take over French merchant ahips at Martinique would be answered by orders to their crews to sabotage the vessels. These sources said this threat was clearly indicated by a passage in Pierre Laval’s note to Washington Saturday saying the handing over df the merchant ships "cannot be envisaged by the French govern ment.” Yesterday afternoon’s newspapers, the first to appear since Laval’s an- j nouncement of rejection of most of i the United States demands, pub lished in full the texts of the com munication which the chief of [ government said Washington had delivered to High Commissioner Admiral Georges Robert of Marti nique. and of the communication Laval said he had sent to the United States. The newspapers made no comment, however. “Empire Fortnight” Opened. In the meantime, the French opened observance of “Empire Fort- [ night” with nation-wide demonstra tions. including officially organized protest meetings against the British occupation of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. A meeting at Lyon, which was pre sided over by Paul Creyssel, director of propaganda, adopted a resolution J supporting any effort to "reconquer ; the territories which have been wrested from us” and ended with a parade of several hundred persons through the heart of the city crying "down with England!” (The Lyon radio, heard in Lon don. said Marshal Petain would broadcast from Vichy last night at the opening of "Empire Fort night,” but at the appointed hour the Minister of Colonies, Jules Brevie, spoke instead with no explanation of why the aged chief of state had failed to broadcast.) English to Be Made to Pay. The Ministry of Information de voted its entire issue of "weekly information notes" to a discussion of “the French empire and England.” The bitterly anti-British comment included a warning to the United States that as far as French colonies in the Caribbean were concerned, “it is hoped for future French-Amer ican relations that Mr. Roosevelt understands the French position and presents, only demands compatible with French honor." The issue in sisted on French reconquest of the empire. “France will make the English pay for all their crimes against her,” the notes said. Of the United State*, the notes said: “France received with anxiety news that the United States framed demands on the subject of the French Antilles. Certain reserve has been imposed regarding the question, which still Is under ne gotiation. We recall that Mr. Laval declared the day after the attack on Madagascar that the French government would never take the Initiative for the rupture of relations with America. "On the other hand, the United States knows that France will never accept ac” abdication of her national honor.” British Bitterly Denounced. The publication then went into a bitter denunciation of the British saying "England, having weakened us after the 1914 war. and after disuniting us. threw us into a war of British capitalism. “Having thrown us into this war. she shamefully abandoned us in a dramatic moment, delivering the French sky to German planes while re-embarking the few poor divisions she sent us. "Being wounded and bled. France' concluded the armistice with the victor which saved France from an nihilation while England continued the spoliation of France.” (The denunciation followed closely the wording of Laval's first speech after assuming power.) The notes then declared that "in two years, the Anglo-Saxons had stolen" vast territories from France. “The empire which remains must be defended.” the notes added. “We must prepare to reconquer the parts of the empire which have been wrested from us.” “Sailors of Europe.” The notes then indicated the offi cial view of the role of France in Hitler's “new Europe.” “If France conserves her fleet and empire, if she understands her great role which can fall to her in the world of tomorrow, Frenchmen will be the sailors of Europe. “France will assure the greatest part of the sea links between Eu rope and America, between Europe and Africa and between Europe and the Far East. French ports will be the warenouses of Europe. “France will direct the flowering of the greatest part of Africa. She and Europe will find therein their profit.” _ Charlie Murray's Widow Dies HOLLYWOOD, May 18 OP).—Mrs. Nellie B.

'Elm' Tree Is Blooming—in Cherry Blossoms! By the Associated Press. RALEIGH, N. C., May 18 — Years ago, Daughters of the American Revolution planted on North Carolina’s Capitol Square, with elaborate ceremony, a little tree purported to be an offspring of the "Continental Elm” under which George Washington took command of the Continental j Army. The ladies kept a box of earth from around the root* of the parent tree for use In christen ing the “elm” when it grew up. The little “elm" has grown up—but it’s blooming, and State Forester J. S. Holmes identified the blooms as cherry blossoms. HOW FAR WILL A FOOD DOLLAR GO ? Part of the answer is IN THIS SHOPPING GUIDE And the other part is in the Safeway Store near you.
