Golf Lingo Made Clear. Ilenry's father was a golf enthusi ast; therefore Henry knew all about the game.

THE NEW CORN FLAKES T Ta Don MEANS BIG ACREAGE Secretary Mohler Believes $2 Wheat Guarantee Will Help Kansas Farmers. EVERY ACRE WILL BE PLANTED Action of Senate and Council of De fense Campaign Expected to Have Good Effect. Action by the United Slates Senate In placing a $2 minimum on wheat, means a record wheat acreage and millions of dollars to the Kansas farmers, according to men familiar with agricultural conditions in this state. J. C. Mohler, secretary of the etate board of agriculture, declared that in his judgment the senate action would mean the sowing of every acre possible with the equipment, labor and power available in the farming districts. Combining the action of the senate with the campaign of the state coun cil of defense, Mohler believes the state's greatest wheat acreage is cer tain. Seed wheat is high and every acre sown In Kansas will probably receive the best possible care and at tention. Reports sent, to Topeka by members of the state council of defense indicat ed that farmers would refuse to plant more than a normal wheat acreage unless the government placed a guar anteed minimum price on their crops.

WILL BE SHORT OF DOCTORS The War Is Draining State of Most of Its Best Physicians, Say Officials. When the United States gets Its fullarmy over to Europe, Kansas will be exceedingly shy of good physicians and surgeons. Most of the first-class doctors and surgeons will be with the troops. Of all the professions, the medical men are showing the most patriotism. They are volunteering by the hundreds, but still there is a shortage of surgeons in the army. Next to common soldiers surgeons are needed In tho greatest number. It takes private soldiers and sur geons to win a war. The outcome doesn't depend entirely upon the stay at home farmers, as many of the poli ticians are now preaching. Many of the big surgeons of the state have not only volunteered their services but have offered to equip field hospitals. Two Topeka surgeons, Dr. McCllntock and Dr. Bowen, even offered to estab lish and run a base hospital, but the war department has been compelled to reject all such patriotic otters. It Is organizing the hospitals, both field and base, itself, and will permit no others to be organized in the fu ture. Early in the war game it did give authority to one or two sets of surgeons to organize hospitals, but it has now changed its policy In that re spect. Nearly every surgeon of any consequence In the Btate has offered his services. The surgeons are not so particular as to what rank they are given. They are ready to go in most any capacity, just so they can go and the threatened exodus of first-class surgeons to Europe has caused alarm. One big Topeka hospital may close during the war on account of losing its surgeons and nurses engaged in war work. It is barely possible that the hospitals of the big cities will all have to form a pool to take care of the home situation during the war. Next to medical men perhaps the newspaper profession is furnishing the most soldiers that is, from the professions. The training camp at Fort Riley is filled with newspaper men. TO WORK FOR BETTER FILMS Parent-Teacher Asscciatien of State Starts a Move for Better Movie -Picture Programs. Plans for a state-wide campaign for cleaner motion pictures were dis cussed at Lansing by Mrs. J. K. Cod ding, president of t.e Kansas state federation of parent-teacher associa tions; Mrs. E. R. Tenney, president of the Kansas City, Kas., federation of parent-teacher associations; Mrs. J. L. Beggs, chairman of the committee for better films of the state parent teacher federation, and Mrs. Carl F. White, vice chairman.

One Crop Pays for Land. It is sel dom that $50 or $60 land pays for it self with one crop, but the high price of wheat this year is making this pos sible In many instances. Dr. C. O. Pin grey of Neodesha reports a yield of 4,402 bushels of wheat on 100 acres south of this city, which, Pt prevail ing prices will sell approximately for $8,800.
