“LUXURY” LAUNDRY
IS UNDER THE BAN
IN LONDON CITY
LONDON, Nov. 7.—-Suggestions
that an embargo be planed on “lux
ury laundry” in London has been
the subject of considerable com
ment in the newspapers here. The
statement that laundries are flooded
with large quantities of dainty lin
gerie and other fancy clothing by
women war workers lias been de
nied by laundrynun.
THRIFT NEED NOT IMPOSE
UGLY MODES IN THE
WOMEN'S DRESS.
Women's dress is becoming more
and more discussed in connection
with thrift and economy.' The
growing popularity of uniforms and
the question of t lie practicability
of standardized dress for women in
business bring forward the ques
tion whether clothing in wartime
should be cheerful or austere.
“Woman’s dress may be the ex
pression of an instinct for display
and variety, man in Ills uttire is the
slave of a standardized past," said
Dr. Jessica Peixotto, executive chair
man of the Department of Child
Welfare of the Woman's Committee,
Council of National Defense. “Cer
tainly women's dress should be
cheerful. I see no reason why thrift
should sound the doom of the dec
orative. It has been said that in
1 the midst of the most severe tor
I ments woman should keep her smile
land that her garments and her or
naments are part of her smile. ‘It
is necessary to laugh in order not
to cry,' and clothing can greatly ait’
in giving the feeling cf cheer. I‘
need not, however, express flippan
cy.
■'Butterfly clothing is very dif
ferent from fresh, simple, useful
dress such as sports clothing rep-,
resents. Austere garments do not
necessarily clothe courage; witness
the gay military uniforms of the
past. It is perfectly possible to -be
thrifty and cheerful, to wear cloth
ing of simple lines and inexpensive
material, so as to liberate labor
now engaged in ereatinlg empty
superfluities, and tbua to add to
the general eflifficiency o fthe woman
power of the country.”

MUCH INTEREST
IS CREATED OVER
SMALL LOAN MADE
LONDON, Nov. 7. — Nows that
Xmerica has granted a loan of $5,
■00,000 to Liberia has created great
interest in commercial and financial
circles connected with British West
Africa. Leslie Cooper, general man
ager of the Rank of British West
\frica, states that the first step un
der the pew loan, will probably be
o repay the 1911 International Loan
of which about £300,000 is out
standing. There is every reason
to believe* be says, that, develop
ments will reveal great natural re
sources.
LONDON THEATRES
NOT DOING SO BIG
BUSINESS NOW
I/1NDON. Sept. 17.—This month
has been notable in Tendon thea
tres for the reason that so few new
Productions have been given. The
cause is attributed to the phenom
enal business all of the show houses
lid right through .the dog days.
Apart from the variety houses, Lon
don has thirty-three regular West
Knd theatres. All except three are
showing comedies of one kind or
another. Apparently soldiers on
'cave, the chief patrons of London’s
theatres these days, do not care
for serious plays.
MUST SAVE 50% MORE
POOD THAN LAST YEAR
While meatless and wheatiess days,
meals auu drive* and campaigns to
save special food stuffs have been
eliminated, we must be more econom
ical than ever (luring the coming year
all along the line, and to the limit
reduce directly our consumption of
•ill foodstuffs and waste of all food
We must save fifty per cent more
food from substantially the same
amount available in this country last
vear. America cannot for a moment
forget that if she Is to share the
victory she must share her food. An
army of four million soldiers must be
fed from this year’s crop. The Am
erican people carried the 1918 ob
(active*—wheat, meat, ,fat and sugar
1 - and now we are settling down to a
steady push along the line. Save
every ounce of essential foodstuffs.
THE NEW HOME CARD.
The New Hume Card will set forth
concisely and io the point the salient
facts of the new conservation pro
gram for the coming year. It is nc
cessary that it be placed upon the,
kitchen wall in every one of the 30.-j
000,000 homes in America. It will |
be ready for distribution December |

be distributed through Alaska. Iti

iO per cent the unprecedented food
exports of last year from food sup
plies in the aggregate no larger than;
last year. We must export 18,000,000 1
ons of foodstuffs during the com
ing year as against 11,000,000 last j
year.
Our simple formula for the coming
year is to further reduce consumption
anti waste of AI,L foods, laying es
pecial emphasis on the staples. The
new program Is less specific hut lit)'
less (fefinite than that of the last
twelve months. The coming your
will be steady pull directed to the
wtiule mod situation and not so much
to particular commodities.
The International program is so
arranged that there will he little
need for substitution, nor to resort
to wheatless and meatless days.
It'Is necessary that every family
in Alaska study the food budget and
food ways to see If it. can not buy
less, servo loss, return nothing to
the kitchen, and practice the gospel
of the clean plate.
You have the intimations of what
the NEW HOME CARD means—go

that yours is a great anti ideal ser
