Japan and all—a total of 10,900,000 tons. Nothing like world domina

Roumania must "place at the disposal of Germany 1,800,000 tons of

attacked peaceful Germany must pay all war charges in raw materials,
ships, ready money and territorial concessions, leaving Germany with onlv

The demand for wheat for human
consumption necessitates that It be
used as economically and sparingly
as possible for feeding animals and
chickens. Some "just as good" ra

been tried out in egg laying tests by
the United States department of ag

been secured. Thirty laying hens, to

The wheatless ration used was as
follows :
Scratch mixture — Two pounds of
cracked corn, one pound of oats.
Dry Mash—Three pounds of corn
meal, one pound of beef scrap.
The scratch mixture was fed spar
ingly, the hens being permitted to eat
about as much of It as of the dry
mash. During the two-year test the
hens were provided with free range
where they could pick a variety of
green feed. Leghorn pullets were
used and it was found that it took
4.6 pounds of feed to produce a dozen
eggs. Fifty-two pounds of grain was
consumed by each pullet annually,
and of this amount twenty-six pounds
was from the scratch mixture. When
wheat Is omitted from the ration it is
advisable to feed more beef scrap.
Laying liens should have a good sup
ply of protein, and the additional beef
scrap supplies this essential in one of
the cheapest forms.

ever brought forth.
The organization now is mad up of on •
regularly enlisted men, including the only bait. mon
are under the direction of Americas premier nundmaster, Lieut. John
1'hilip Sou-u.
The hand was divided into twelve units during the Thir l Li
campaign. In each unit wi re 'rom twenty-five t
bands went into live of ;he twelve Federal R serve Bank districts, making two
and three week si amis In such cities as Chicago. Philadelphia, Cleveland, St.
Louis', Kan.-as City, Duluth and .Milwaukee. Various units toured Missouri,
Arkansas, Kentucky, Indiana. Mississippi, Tennessee, Kan-iis, Pennsylvania,
Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Oklahoma, Colorado, Wyoming and north
ern New Mexico,
During the Liberty Loan campaign the Great Lakes Naval Training Station
band played before nine million, live hundred thousand people. They marched
VII hundred men. Th' se
over three thousand, six hundred miles and played more than twelve thousand
pieces. They were greeted everywhere by the greatest display of patriotic
enthusiasm ever accorded a military organization in the history of America.
Besides influencing bond snles variously estimated ut from live hundred
million to a billion dollars, this band is reported to have aroused the districts
Into which it went to a pitcli of patriotism and solid confidence in the admin
istration and all things American that nothing else could have accomplished.
Into every section of the larger cities and into every community marched the
bluejackets, firm of step, erect of carriage, fighting men, every inch of them.
Thousands of Americans who never before in this war had realized the caliber
of men upon whom America depends for victory, saw these two-fisted sea
going young patriots and dug down into their purses for money to back them up.
It was at the urgent request of Secretary of the Treasury William G. Mc
Adoo that the Great Lakes bandsmen went into the Third Liberty Loan cam
paign. In a letter to Secretary Josephus Daniels of the navy, he speaks of the
"extremely valuable assistance rendered by the Great Lakes Naval Training
Station band."
At the period of the two campaigns named, this country seemed to need
visible evidence of where the money was going. Every highway and byway
of sixteen states was visited by the Great Lakes hand and every grown-up and
every little tot stood straighter and breathed faster at the sight of them swing
ing down the street, playing the fighting tunes of America s time-tried race of
fighting men.

Cottage Cheese Dishes.
Our government food experts real
ize the need that all housewives learn
to use many foods which have high
nutritive value, but have been given
but a small place in the family dlet
ary. Cottage cheese is one of these
wholesome dishes. There are some
who have not learned to like this nu
tritious food, and so it may he given
in small doses, camouflaged in such
a manner that in a short while even
the most obstinate objector is fully
Immune. One way to introduce this
into the diet of a biased member of
the family is to make
Cottage Cheese Dressing.
Take a quarter of a cup of nice
creamy cottage cheese and mix it
with any good boiled dressing or a
mayonnaise is especially good, using
a spoonful of the dressing at a time,
mixing well until thoroughly blended
and enough of the dressing is added
to cover the flavor of the cheese. This
heaped over sliced tomatoes is per
fectly delicious, anil will never be dis
covered by more man as containing
anything but legitimate materials or
dinarily found in the average salad
Cottage Cheese Sausage.
Take a cupful each of cottage
cheese, a cup of dry bread crumbs or
rice or a mixture of both, two table
spoonfuls of butter or sweet fat, a
fourth of a cup of chopped pecans,
or peanuts, a half teaspoon of pow
dered sage or poultry dressing, one
teaspoon of salt, a tablespoonful of
' milk, A third of a teaspoon of soda
dissolved in the milk, a tablespoonful
of finely minced onion. Cook the
onion in the fat until tender but not
brown, then mix all the ingredients
together and form into bails, roll in
bread crumbs and brown in a frying
pan in a little hot fat. Serve hot, gar
nished with parsley.
Cottige Cheese for Dessert.
Add a little sugar to n cupful of
seasoned cheese, make a mound of It
and dot with teaspoonfuls of rasp
berry jam. Serve with crackers and
coffee. Cottage cheese with chopped
mnrischino cherries is delectable as
sandwich filling.

Tighter and Longer Skirts,
Cause Order for Lower Steps
On the Spokane Street Cars
Score another for the women. This
time they have made two big trans
portation companies see the error of
their way. They have compelled
tardy recognition of the fact that the
length of a skirt offers the only proper
rule for regulating the height of street
car steps.
The women of Spokane did it. They
were confronted by fashion's latest
edict of longer, tighter skirts, and
street ear steps twenty inches from
the ground. Something had to give
way. Obviously fashion's decree
could not he changed, hence the at
tack on the high steps.
But the street ear companies could
not see it. The same steps had been
in use for years and it would cost
money to make the change. Protests
by the women were aired in the news
papers and gravely considered by the
nickel gatherers, but no action re
sulted. Then the Women's Good Gov
ernment league got busy with an ap
peal direct to the public service com
mission of the state. The commission
listened to the argument, considered
it reasonable and promptly ordered
lower street car steps. The trans
portation companies bowed their heads
and the car steps are now dropped

Bathing Is a Luxury, Not a

Arctic Explorer's Theory
It 1-: not mimtiMh! to one' health that

hypothesis <-.pounded by \ilbjalmur
Stefansson, the «retie explorer. In a
philosophical discii-slon of scurvy la
the Medical Review of Reviews. Mr.
Stefansson n wert s bathing Is purely
an esthetic principle and that the
value of cleanliness to health has not
been established by the medical prac
Mr. Stefansson's pronouncement
will he greeted with jubilation by the
elements whh-h possess an Ingrown
dislike for hydrogen and oxygen In
proportions of two to one. It has been
accepted as dogmatic by the Mexican
pelados for years, who as a religious
function, bathe only on St. John's
day, which is celebrated early In May.
"Much of what the ordinary practi
tioner tells you about 'bathing for
health' is either not yet demonstrated
ns true or else is demonstrably un
true," declares Mr. Stefansson. "The
fact is tfcat. according to the point of
view, cleanliness is a matter of esthet
ics or else of taboo observance rather
than of health."
The explorer makes en apology ln
the article for his attnek on medical
orthodoxy by declaring he has been
divorced from medical books and jour
nals for more than ten years. Mr.
Stefansson wrote the treatise while
in the arctic region in 1916. He was
reported as dangerously ill from ty
