PRICE OF 1 E JUMPS TO DIM Dandruff Surely Destroys The Hair Girls If you want plenty of thick, beautiful, glossy, silky hair, do by all means get rid of dandruff, for it will starve your hair and ruin It if you don't. It doesn't do much good to try to brush or wash It out. The only sure way to get rid of dandruff Is to dis solve It, then you destroy It entirely. To do this, get about four ounces of ordinary liquid arvon; apply It at night when retiring: use enough to moisten the scalp and rub It in gently with the finger tips. By morning, most If not all. of your dandruff will be gone, and three. or four mora applications will completely dissolve and entirely destroy every single sign and trace of It. You will find. too. that all itching and digging of the scalp will stop, and your hair will look and feel a hundred times better. You can get liquid arvon at any drug store. It Is Inex pensive and four ounces Is all you will need, no matter how much dand druff you have. This simple remedy sever rails. aqvi. matter of whether farmers and re tailers co-operate with the Govern ment to check soaring rates. The retail grocers have already pledged Food Administrator Hoover that they will work harmoniously toward price reduction, but neither the retail marketroan nor the grocer Is absolutely under the Governmental control. pt Co-operation. However, the spirit of co-operation Is such that officials expressed the view today that the predicted relief from ever-mounting costs will ba 'en tirely possible. Millers particularly are aiding, and there is manifestly some sllcinr of wholesole prices. Despite the fact that many cities are on sugar rations, due to a tem porarily short supply, this commed. lty and others show signs of g:ng down before the new year. A large reduction from August prices Is shown In flour. Corner Turned. 'The corner" has now been turned In high prices," says the food adminis trator. The bean harvest Is plentiful! corn promises a 40 per cent drop on the big, new crop: beef, cork, and poultry feed will be cheaper, sj.a hence meat should be lower. E ALL OVER CITY Did you notice the Greek boy this morning In the shine parlor, his ap parently gleeful frame of mind and the added vim with which he slapped his brushes around your shoes to the tune of "It's a Hot Time," or Us Grecian equivalent? Well, there was a reason, as" you found out when' you paid, for Tony has a raise. The ehoe-shlners' union has boosted its tariffs. No more the Jitney shine In Washington. This morning in all of the city's fifty-four shine emporiums It Is 10 cents lnttead of S. Anton Pannas. president of the as sociation of shoe-shtners; A. A. Mantz- ourls, Nick Karvelas, Steve Diamond, and others prominent In the buslners say that they were forced to It by the pinch of necessity, and that the cry of increased expenses is not camouflage behind which they are getting In on the general grab at the poor public's purse. Rents have gone up. some 01 me establishments are now paying as high as STO a month, according to Mr, Diamond. But the biggest item Is la bor. Greek boys, their relatives from the old country in many instances, are demanding and getting as much as $30 a month, and board, whereas in ante-bellum days they received only 16 or $7 a week and their keep. Black lng and shoestrings have gone up 150 per cent. LIBERTY LOAN DRIVE BRINGS OUT LATENT D. C. TALENT mmSmffm ?

More marvelous than the singing of a bird because it comes from a human throat, her voice surpasses the crystal purity of the flute. At the close is a wonderful climax Barrientos and the flute in wonderful interplay. Stracciari in Brilliant Soldier Farewell Song Faust. (Gounod.) Dio Potsents (Even Bravest Heart). 49Z14, 12-inch, $1.50 Fifty years backward Stracciari turns the opera scores to find a song of warrior bold that gives his vigorous baritone voice full range and dramatic scope. The farewell song of the soldier Valentine as he goes to war 6eems as though it were expressly written for these present days. "Even bravest heart may swell in the moment of farewell" Stracciari, leading baritone of the Chicago Opera, enriches these poignantly touching lines with grandeur and magnificence.

"The get ting together of the citizens' associa tions and of all the able and resource ful clvlo organizations of the District to further the cause of our country merely points out what can be done along other lines. Many of the citizens' associations have heretofore looked upon their responsibilities as purely local to their own neighborhoods, but when called upon to extend their duties to a wider field, they show a response that stamps them as composed of men of the highest grade."
