WITH AMERICAN AVIATORS IN FRANCE, Oct. 24. Picture a dozen huge airplane* standing In rows of three or four, their engine* .roaring and propellers whirling like mad, im agine the rat-tat-tat of a dozen ma chine guns being tested at targets and shouts of aviators and mechan ics and you have an accurate first impression of the scene on the field of an American bombing squadron ■about to start for German territory., Over the broad sloping field bor dered by low trees, half a dozen other airplanes are wheeling in the . sunny sky. The sun’s rays are glint ing from their wings and the colors of their insignia flash brightly as they turn and twist. A score or more of aviators, per spiring in Arctic furs, fur-lined hel mets and boots hasten hero and there while men in oiled and greasy khaki cling to th» wings of the air planes tugging to be free. Nestling in the border of trees are tiny bungalow t huts covered with branches or canvas to conceal them from prying enemy aviators. Hatf a dozen grotesquely camouflaged hang ars are scattered about the field. The airplanes of this squadron are not quite the fantastically painted machines used by most of the pur suit pilots, but they are still rather| kaleidoscopic and each bears the humorously conceived insignia of* a red colored devil within a white tri angle, who with one hand holds a white bomb, and with the other thumbs his nose sarcastically down ward toward the Hocho underneath.

Over the Past Year. ,IS MOST IMPERATIVE The United States Has Ta ken Attitude Whatever All Allies Want, Amer ica Will Supply. (Educational Director Alaska's Food Administration) To correct an erroneous impres sion that seems to prevail in the minds of sundry persons in towns on ! Oastineau Channel that under the I new conservation program of the i Food Administration there is no i longer any necessity for conserving foodstuffs—that there is now noth ing definite—that there is no limit on flour consumption that there arc no whoatless or meatless days, spec j ial “drives," or campaigns—that only sugar, is asked to be saved—the I Food Administration for Alaska, speaking tor the U. S. Food Admin 11st ration, wishes to emphatically J state that the new conservation pro gram for the coming year is stiffer than anything that has preceded, though by paradox it is more flexible. In response to Allied needs and the requirements of the military situa tion. it contemplates increasing by 50 per cent, the unprecedented food exports of last year from food sup plies in the aggregate no larger than last year. This is to be accomplished by saving. Mr. Hoover has taken the attitude for the United States that whatever the war food program of the Allies requires of us we are prepared to meet. It is strictly an International pro gram. Last year the Food Adminis tration could do little more than meet one sudden emergency after another. Now it is a unified pro gram, with calculations of all the re sources of the Allied pool, of the shipping available, of the military effect of employing the vessels for all or another purpose. Our simple formula for the coming year is to further reduce consumption and waste of ALL FOOD, laying es pecial emphasis on the staples. We must export 18,000,000 tons of foodstuffs during the coming year as against 11,000,000 last year. Tho American people can do this by voluntary action. The new program is less specific but no less definite than that of the last twelve months. The coining year will be a steady pull directed to the whole food situation and not so much as to particular commodi ties. After a year's experience the Fowl Administratnon is on a new footing in this country and abroad. Tlie ways have been learned, the methods have been developed. The war conscience Is active everywhere Since the birth of Christ there has never been such a momentous i time as there is taday, and yet some people drift along not getting thor ouglily into the war. The food dubs of Alaska and every Individual are asked to put their shoulders to the wheel, to save food as never before, sacrifice until it hurts, study the food budget and food ways to see if they cannot buy less, serve less, return nothing to the kitchen and practice the gospel of a clean plate, to the end that our promise to the Allies may be fulfilled. If this is not done it will cost an additional million lives. The Food Administration appeals to the intelligence in the homes and public eating places of America to work out for themselves the means and manner of saving. Again, let it be said, that the Food conservation program for the coming year is to provide for shipment hall' as much again of the necessary foods as were exported last year; while the war lasts to maintain the health, comforts and courage of the Allies; I WHAT ABOUT FATHER7 Obsessed with the big idea o! protecting those at home, father often omits the essential protection of his most vital asset—strength. scorn emixsion is as beneficial to the hard-working man o! business as it is to the growing child. Scott’* imparts the quality to the blood that enables the body to grip strength fast Scott’s helps solve die problem that faces every business-man—that of hasping up with the wear and tear on the botfy* SBBttaspwac.WocalcM.K.1._ Jem when the war ends, to rescue and re store all feeble folk who sit at the common table. To reach these ends America must save food. There must be no let up anywhere at any tiihe. Can any true American, especially Ihe sturdy sons and daughters of the far Northland, sit back in the face pf the above, and say that there is nothing more to be done? It is not enough to take off your hat to the flag, roll up your sleeves, get in and dig and do something and do it with all your might. Right now and for the coming year there is greater need of food conservation than ever before, all along the line. New Home Card Distribution of the new Home Card has been postponed until December 1st. on account of the influenza in the various military camps which 1 prevented a proper distribution among the 30,000,000^ homes in Amer ica. The card will set forth con cisely and point out the salient facts of the 1018-19 food program.. It is not a "scrap of paper” but the very foundation of our needed year's work. We must give to it every energy and effort. The new Home Card is the reflection on parchment of tho will ingness to assume individual respon sibility and is one of the greatest proofs of the character and idealism of our people. * Women like to brag about their husbands, but they all know- enough never to do it when their* husbands can overhear them.
