BON TON CORSETS $3.49 to $6.49 ROYAL WORCESTER CORSETS 98c to $2.98 NEW IDEA MAGAZINES NEW IDEA PATTERNS Promise a Reduction in Price οί Rice Shortly NEWARK, May 2:—Information comes from Washington to W. S. Tyler, federal food administrator for New Jersey, that the price of ricc promises to be lower soon. There liad been a shortage due to demands from the army and navy but. with an expected surplus of 160,000,000 pounds there should be an ample quantity for domestic purposes. Rice flour, also, is now reported by Wash ington as coming into the market and experiments with it have developed some delicious breads, to substitute for wheat. Rice came into new favor when potatoes were scarce and the rice raticn in the army is slightly more than a pound a month for each fight er. Its value as a staple diet reestab lished with the American people. Since soni<· right hundred thousand orientals use rice as practically their only cercal, its nutritional value can not be doubted. It Is low In protein and fats, however, and is therefore usually served either as α cercal or dessert when cream or milk Is added; οι- as a vegetable or casserole dish with fat as a supplementary ingredi ent. In the United States there are three distinct rice growing sections, tiie Carolinas and Georgia, the Miss issippi section (I.ouisiana and Arkan sas) and the prairie lands of south west Louisiana and southeastern Texas. Our own rice mills have been running to full capacity in order to eupply the demand for a million bags for our fighting forces and the Allies. Happiness In Love of Book·.

First Aerial Mail Route Established Here, July 4, 1912 The announcement that Uncle Sam will soon add another wrinkle to his 'corrugated system, of mail transporta tion, «by placing in the tournament an aeroplane mail service, has little or no thrill for the Pacemaking City which started to make tracks along: about 1012, wheen the first, get that, the first aerial mail service in the United States 'was established between this city and South Aniboy. When Mineola and Washington or New York and Philadelphia, as the case may develop, start tooting their -municipal horns about May 15, over the first aerial mail route, City Treas urer Ferd Garretson will be justified in rising up in his wrath and demon strating to the larger, but less impor u tant municipalities that he started that thins and that when originality enters, old Γ. A. is there, first, last and nil the time and that on July 6 in that memorable year, he toted the first mail sack ever officially conveyed through the air. When the aviators, more confident now than in 1912, start their daily trips from New York to Washington, with Philadelphia os a stopping off place, they may be making the first serviceable mail route and the first to be permanently established, but they can hang nothing: on Perth Amboy, whose Pacemaking proclivities caused its birth one day in advance of the country's metropolis and have always kept it one jump ahead, even in the ] matter of Liberty Loans and other im portant items. Harken back to the days when Route No. 900,000 of the government mail service was established. That was on July i, 1912, Mr. Garratson, then mayor of this city, «lid Into his seat In Collier's hydroplaire over at South Amboy and very much keyed up (not at being In South Amboy) glided ι into the air with the aviator, O. G. Simmonds, and came over to this city, [ carrying a sack of registered mall, de livered to him by E. C. Roddy of South and consigned to Harry Tyrrell, assist ant postmaster of Perth. Remember that, do you? And when the bluff, black with people cheered the performance? And when Chris Wagner, of the EVENING NEWS got a free ride, too? And how the darned old plane wouldn't rise till the right current of air got under its tall? And the big wind that day? Well then, remember, when some one starts to croak about getting a let ter through the "first aerial mail ser vice," just tell him to sell his tale to the Bullsheviki and remind him of the "one and only, first and reliable, un- 1 deniably the original" mail service | through the air which took place in Perth Amboy, the Pacemaking City. frfrCrCrirCràtrCrù-CrCiirCrùirCi-Cttiiriiirtitiiii COURT FREES MAN WHO \.

For the first time in the history oi speedway racing, New York this yeai will bo the scene of a championship meet on Memorial Day, May 30. Evei since the inauguration oi these auto mobile contests, Decoration Day hai been considered the banner day oi I the season. But it was not until this year that New York was awarded the "plum." William H. Wellman has obtained the prize for the Sheeps ! head Bay Speedway. The feature at this month's speed carnival will be the Harkness Handi cap, at 100 miles, in ■which the great est drivers in the world will compete. In addition there will be races at shorter distances, as well as an aero plane match between Miss Ruth Law and Miss Katherine Stinson, the fore most lady flyers. Each claims the honor of being "Queen of the Air." ! The 100-mile handicap will be a feature on all the speedways this year, inasmuch as it is the most in teresting and thrilling style of racing yet presented. ι This was p»oved by the manner in which a short distance handicap met .with the approval of the 75,000 spec tators that witnessed the final race meet of the year at Slieepshead Bay Speedway last September. This style of racing found immediate favor, and j the fact that this month's race is to be a handicap of 100 miles, for a j record purse, and with the best driv ers competing, is expected to draw I close to 100,000 to the seaside course. Speedway racing was introduced in this country in 1911, with the Inter | national 500-mile Sweepstakes at In I dianapolis. This classic was contested at this course for six years, always on May 30. Last season, with war threat ening, the Indianapolis Speedway management cancelled its prize date, and the event was held at Cincinnati. Wellman had to outbid the Cincin nati speedway people in order to se cure the May 30 date for the Sheeps head Bay track this season. His an nouncement of the feature race at 100 miles, at the handicap style, will be a new departure in the automobile rac ing game on the speedways. From 1911 to 1915, Inclusive, the Indianapolis race was at the Derby distance of 500 miles. In 1916 the distance was reduced to 300 miles. Last year, at Cincinnati, the route was cut fifty miles more. The pro moters were long in realizing that the public demanded races at the short distance, as it would not pat ronize a long race owing to the tedium after the first 100 miles. The Ilarkness Handicap henceforth will replace the International Sweep stakes on May 30. Kalph DePalma, the sprint champion, won the Indian apolis 500-mile race in 1915; Dario Jlesta captured the classic, at 300 miles, in 1916, while Louis Chevrolet annexed the honors, over the 250 mile route, last year. These throe stars are expected to be among the two-score starters in the Harkness Handicap on Memorial Day. In addition there will be several foreign champion drivers in the com petition, chief among them Arthur Duray, the European speed king. Duray is expected to sail for this country shortly. He lias cabled his acceptance of an invitation from Wellman to race in this country this summer. The Sheepshead Speedway Motor Club, Inc., of which Wellman is pres ident, has almost filled its first quota of 1,000 members, and arrangements are nearly completed for the inaug uration of the series of members' races. Challenges Frank Triooli, better known among lightweight borers as Charlie (Kid) Brown, is managing two fast fighters whom he wishes to match up with any men of their weight. One Is Jimmy Marra, a bantamweight an if champion of Hudson county, and the other is Soldier Roberts, of Hoboken, a colored welterweight. Matchmak ers and promolors wishing to sign up either of these men may do so by addressing Charlie Brown, 218 Wayne street, Jersey City.

Baseball avowedly was entering th· oiircial period of its two war-time ilasons when it started oft this year, I and the result has been anything but ! pleasing to tho pessimistic forecahtere who saw notling but woo ahead. A statement printed in New York, pur porting to come from a "high base ball official" did as much as anything to throw a wave of gloom about their probabilities of the forthcoming sea son, but the fans have swept it away ι In ono mad dash through the turn I stiles of the major league parks. Looking tho issue squarely in the face, it appears now that baseball act ually is going to have a hilarious sea I son, instead of a season replete with woe. The prediction of the baseball official named in the foregoing was that four big league baseball clubs 1 were tottering on the verge of ruin. I These same four cities have done their I sharo of sending tho national game successfully over the top for tho in | auguration of this war-time season. If interest shown on opening day keeps alive the remainder of the sea son baseball will have an average sea son to check up when the snow again files. It has been argued ever since the war started that the nation would be in need of sports during the period of the war. It · was contended that I nothing would serve so well to taJte 11■ minds of the masses off the gloomy side of war-life, so baseball was look ed on as the fulfillment of this need —probably more than any other sport. When athletic games were stag ■ gerlng around under the body blow dealt by the big eastern college»·, baseball kept its head up, and witll no pretense of pessimism, went on through the season. Minor leagues began to go under, and others prom ised that they might also suffer a like fate. Tho International gave up the ghost during the winter after refusing to listen to a proposition which would have saved it. But the big leagues kept right on, and tho testi monial given by the fans proved those infirmâtes were right. There have been sufficient icces sions in salaries and other expenses to save the money that seems to be gone from the big league parks dur ing the war. Necessary war sacrifices havo been made in some quarters, while in others the magnates aro op erating with the same pomp as In former years. Baseball, however, will not dio this season. If the worst comes to tlio worst, the 1919 season may be shortened, but baseball is go ing on just as certainly as spring and lmer come each year. The start this season proved the standing of the η· rame as nothing else could have done. HARLEY DAVIDSON IS HERB. Better than Ever. We have a few bargains in Used Machines.
