Riordan, federal food administrator for Arizona, This message is directed to the housewives, merchants, millers and farmers of Arizona whose patriotic co operation made possible the wonderful snowing made in' this state in the con servation of wheat. Reviewing this greatest of all food conservation activi ties the following statement was given out: "When the 50-50 rule went into ef fect January 28, 1918, there was a spon taneous movement on the part of all to make it effective at once. 'This was soon supplemented by a voluntary action of the merchants of the state in adopting a card rationing system which insured fair treatment to all. The farmers were appealed to plant more wheat; a 20 per cent in crease was the result. The millers were asked to grind this wheat for the government and they sold 3,000,000 pounds of flour to Uncle Sam at prac tically cost and it was delivered to Galveston for war export. Other ad ditional millions of pounds of wheat flour which ordinarily would have been consumed were diverted to the allies through the simple expedient of mak ing an island of Arizona as far as out side shipments were concerned. 'It was this thorough co-operation of all interests that gave Arizona rec ognition as one of the foremost con servation states during the war, and for her prestige in this particular every one who assisted can take pardonable pride. The people of Arizona should re member, however, that conservation Is not at an end and will not terminate until peace articles are actually signed. Ths may mean a wait of six months or longer until all food restrictions are re moved, during which period greater economies than ever must be practiced if we are to meet the. demand of starv ing millions of the liberated nations of Europe." o Lee R. Callahan, Mrs. Callahan, their two children and Mr. Callahan's moth er are confined to their home with in fluenza. Mr. Callahan is assistant post master. The only one in the household who has escaped the affection is Mr. Callahan, Sr., who recently arrived in Phoenix to spend the winter with his son. All were taken ill at about the same time. Mrs. Callahan became ill Wed nesday morning, followed in the even ing by Mr. Callahan. One of the chil dren, a boy, was attacked at the time of his mother, the little girl coming down later. Mr. Callahan's mother was also stricken Wednesday. The father is making heroic efforts to attend to the nursing of the entire family. Use The Republican Classified Pages MUM IN flllNDOF FOOD RESTRICTIONS CALLAHAnJ FAMILY IS ILL WITH INFLUENZA RAIN SLOWS DRIVE COUNTY ADDS ONLY $10,000 TO TOTAL State. Now Has Total Subscriptions of $250,362 and Mari copa County $43,500 Which Is 73 Per Cent Of Its Mini mum Quota; But Under the Increased Budget Arizona's Quota Is $306,000; Determined Work Xeeded To Win Official reports to state headquarters i for the United War Work campaign show total subscriptions to the welfare fund up to last evening of $250,362. Be- I cause of the rain, which was general, i. the day did not add the sum to the state s total which had been hoped ror. Maricopa couDty, however, added $10, 00.0 to its total and now is credited with having raised 143,500, or 75 per cent of its minimum quota. There is some misunderstanding with regard to quotas. When the drive was first planned, the budget of the seven accredited war agencies banded in the name of United War Work campaign showed a minimum need of $170,500,000 for the entire United States. Under that budget the Arizona quota is $306,000. It was soon found that the amount asked would be far too small to do the work desired, and when peace came the demand was even greater, for while the cost of war goes down as does the cost of the mercy service of the Red Cross when war is over, the cost of welfare work mounts, for the men have so much more leisure and need so much more to occupy their minds than while fight ing. It is now hoped to raise a quarter of a billion in the United States for the work in the next 12 months of these seven war work agencies. If this larger sum is to be raised, the quota for Ari zona will be $459,000. Thus the state is still $209,000 under the increased quota asked. Maricopa Workers Still Sixth. In spite of extraordinary efforts yes terday Maricopa failed to advance above sixth place in the hst of counties. Pro portionately the order of the six top counties is Pinal, Greenlee, Yavapai, Cochise, Gila and Maricopa. Graham county is at the bottom of the list, hav ing reported but 3 per cent of its quota raised. Santa Cruz has nothing to brag of with only 11 per cent of its quota, reported as collected. South Is Doing Fine Work. The department of the south, through Associate Campaign Manager W. H. Day, has wired Campaign Manager C. IL Buchnor of the Arizona headquar ters as follows: "The campaign is making good prog ress in spite of the victory celebration. Arkansas wires that 50 per cent of its minimum quota is subscribed and that the sun is shining there. The worst drouth -stricken counties In Texas are already over their quota. "One county in Georgia with a quota of $3,000 for both the whites and the colored people found to its great sur prise that the colored folk had raised the entire amount themselves. One North Carolina county with a quota of $14,000 for whites and colored combined had a novel experience. The negroes misunderstood the matter and raised the entire $14,000 themselves." Like the Front Line Trenches. The young women in charge of the "Baby Hut" found their small house rather like the front line trenches after the rain this morning. The hut has no floor save the pavement, and the water flowed clear across the street, making the room rather damp and dreary until a small stove could be procured. The wind broke the big map across the cor ner of the Hotel Adams so that it had to be taken down for repairs. The map will bo back in place this morning. In spite of the rain the "Baby Hut" collected $148 yesterday and entertained about a dozen visiting soldiers to whom cigarettes and warm drinks were served. The new motto of the "Baby Hut" is "drop in and drop in at least a dollar." Notes From Maricopa County. Owing to the rain the workers in the cause of the seven welfare organizations in the war work drive had a hard propo sition on hand yesterday, but there was some good work done nevertheless. One of the most encouraging reports came in rrom the ictory Boys and Victory Girls. In Maricopa county the Victory uiris turned in $624.16, and the Victory Eoys turned in $469.90. One of the pleasing incidents at the headquarters was the fact that a num ber of workmen came into the office. said that .they had not been seen by the solicitors ana gave from $3 to $5 each. The report from the various Indus trial plants of the city is that they have organized and arranged to contribute either Friday or Saturday from one to two days' wages, which will help out materially. It was reported to headquarters that tne j?ive Hundred or Over club, or ganized by Mr. Heard, already had 17 mempers with several more in sight. The county chairman has organized a s-'ou ciud which already has a numbe of members. A notable incident that helped to en courage the workers at headquarters in their hard task was the fact that George H. . Maxwell of Boston sent in nia cnecK lor si.uuu. .Mr. Maxwell is the same man who sent the Red Cross $1,000 during their drive. Mr. Maxwell became acquainted with Phoenix, Franklin D. Lane and Charles Stauffer of the Arizona Republican last winter at Castle Hot Springs.

The Fashion Millinery - 113 North First Ave. Isaacs district, under the able di rection of A. S. Reed, chairman of the workers, has undergone an ex ceptional canvas and of the quota of $800 assigned to that district, $700 already has been raised. , Mrs. Bailey, chairman of the wom en workers in the Madison district, is eRdeavoring to make a banner record for oversubscription in Mari copa county and, despite the rain, that district has raised a total of1 $1,500, or $400 above its quota. In the Chandler district, out of a quota of $4,000, alloted to that dis trict, one-half already has been raised and it has been promised that an effort will be made today to go over the top. Too much cannot be said in com mendation of the fine work of the women workers in the residence districts. In spite of all handicaps they are maintaining their remark able record of $1,000 a day. Already the employes of many of the business houses and industrial plants of Phoenix are in the 100 per cent list. More are coming in every day. The Elks of Phoenix have started a movement to include all fraternal organizations in this campaign, and have njade,an example by contribut ing $250. The Elks have named a committee composed of Frank De Sousa and Frank Thomas to extend this work to every Elk lodge in Ari zona. and only a few months ago did the un usual thing of buying a generous en dowment for a chair of United States citizenship in the Boston university. Mr. Maxwell has very- strong ideas about the teaching of American citizen ship to the students of our colleges and universities. Mr. Lane announced that he' was expecting Mr. Maxwell to ar rive in a short time and thinks that he is going to make this his future home. Another interesting incident yester day was that it was reported that the employes of the Dorris-Heyman Furni ture company had subscribed to the united war work drive 100 per cent. This was also the case with The Ari zona Republican. Thus far the woman's committee, un der the direction of Mrs. E. W. Lewis with her splendid group of workers, have turned in $4,213.22, which is an average of over $1,000 per day since the campaign commenced. The Osborn dis trict, under Mrs. Stoneman, turned in the largest amount today. o E T District headquarters of the marine recruiting station has been closed. Re version to pre-war conditions is to be the rule and this station will come within the jurisdiction of the Los An geles office. Sergeant Orville Gildow will remain in charge in this city.

First Sergeant Leslie O. Merrick will proceed to Quantico, Va. "We hae received from general head quarters a letter of strong commenda tion for both the number and character of men Phoenix has furnished through this station," said Sergeant Gildow yesterday, when he announced the dis continuance of his station under war conditions. "I regret that I am unable to state the number of available men we have taken from this district In re turning this office to a peace basis, I cannot refrain from expressing the ap preciation of my fellow officers and myself for the splendid manner in which your people and the press have stood behind us in every way.
