THOSE people who are inclined to
rebel when Mr. Hoover asks them
to do with a little less sugar this
month and a little less wheat bread an
other month, do not appreciate the plen
ty which is still left them. To such peo
ple a knowledge of food conditions in
other countries w’hich are at war should
bring a feeling of gratitude for the com
parative luxury in which we of America
still live;
In Petrograd, for instance, before the
Americans were forced to flee, a Y. v\.
C. A. canteen was opened for Russian
working girls, but had to be closed be
cause of the lack of food. The attend
ance there had received such a response
among the girls that the secretaries de
cided to serve tea daily with crackers
and sandwiches of whatever kind could
be secured. Their club centers afforded
rest and quiet for the girls during the
strenuous days of the first revolution.
Scarcity of food was only one of the dif
ficulties that the secretaries encountered,
however.
In Russia no meat is obtainable, save
veal. One can get a little milk and also
rice which must be used sparingly, ce
reals, very little bread and the worst
flour imaginable. Sugar is 90 cents a
pound and a pound of cocoa. $2.60. Vet
with this meager supply, the Y. \V. C. A.
clubhouse kept open.
Classes in English, French, gymnas- .
tics, hygiene, stenography and bookkeep- j
ing were held at the Y. W. C. A. cen- !
ters. Parties, picnics and sociable af- '
fairs were planned by the secretaries to
see that the girls got needed recreation. |
One day in early June several secretaries i
started out to find a safe park as a place I
for the outings, and this is the account ot j
the trip:
“We started about 10:30 with our boxes j
of black bread and some cakes of choc
olate.* We took a car and were getting
on famously when the car stopped. We
sat still a short time. The crowds pass
ing to and fro had a decided air of ten
sion and excitement, and we heard a .
few shots fired. We got out and tried to j
get away, but soon found ourselves in- j
side a line of guards with apparently :
no way out. People were seething this
way and that. Guns were going off. We
finally got across to the other side, but
were stopped and asked for papers. Lat
er we reached the park and sat there
on a couple of stumps and ate our mea
ger lunch, watching an airplane battle ,
overhead.”

Staff Captain Main and His Wife Are the Youngest
Veterans of the Salvation Army Wearing the Insigna
Indicating 25 Years of Unbroken and Satisfactory Service
By DOLLY DlLRVItfPLK
EVrER since one fatal day in New
York when I accosted a. perfectly
good naval aviation lieutenant at
h hotel under the impression that he
was a “bell-hop,'’ and asked him the
way to the telephone, I've been mighty
careful about how I placed in my own
mind people who wear insignias and
things; of course I, along with others of
ordinary intelligence and common sense
have learned to distinguish between a
general "and a private, an admiral ?yntf
a sailor since the war began; in other
words I've caught on to the general rules
of the game; still just, about the time
I'm easy in ray mind and think I’ve got
things nicely tucked away in my stupid
old cranium, along comes somebody with
something new and, biff! bang! “down
comes cradle, baby and all.”
This is precisely what happened to me
the other day when I met our new stal l
captain, David Main of the Salvation
Army, the splendid, valiant, Christian
soldier now in charge of the work here.
Captain Main wears an insignia embroid
ered, or ^whatever it is that they do to
insignias, on the collar of his uniform,
which anybody would be proud of; it is
decidedly different and as many Salva
tionists as I have known I have never
before seen any one wearing this little
green-blue-gold device. Of course ray
first impulse wras to ask Captain Main
what it stood for, because I’ve been try
ing to inform myself as 1 said before
about these things in the army and the
Salvation Army is one of the most im
portant branches as we all realize of
the great army now fighting for the dem
ocracy and freedom of tha* world. J fol
lowed my impulse—sometimes it’s a good
thing to do, you know—and it was my
pleasure to learn that the Insignia w^ich
Captain Main wears is the order or long
service—“25 years of unbroken and sat
isfactory service in the Salvation Army.”
Now. isn’t that a nice introduction of
Captain Main to (he good people of this
community among whom he and lus
wife and family have cast their lot and
among whom they will work?
Addea to the fact that Captain Main
wears the insignia of long service in
the Salvation Army is the almost unpre
cedented incident that his wife also
wears it; the story is an interesting one
and I’m going to let you hear it from
Captain Main himself.
“You see it was this wav," the captain
said. “I have been in the service of
the Salvation Army for 28 years; my
wife has been in the service 26 years:
we started as mere boy and girl; she
was converted under my preaching and
joined the army when she was still in
her 'teens, then we were married; we
still continued our service in the army
A-:
STAFF CAPT. DAVIT) MAIN
Of the Salvation Army, who has
recently assumed charge of the gulf
division with headquarters at Bir
mingham.
and when the silver anniversary came
around—the twenty-fifth anniversary—
we were awarded by our beloved com
mander the insignia of ion/? service- -•>
years of unbroken and.satisfactory ser
vice with the army. Calomel Holz, when
he was Jiere recently, a few weeks ago,
at our services presented Mrs. Main with
her insignia.”
And right here, let me say that, there
are many older soldiers in the Salvation
Army than Captain and Mrs. Main, both
in years and length of service, for they
are both still young: as years .go, who do
not wear the insignia they wear; be
cause first of ally-listen closely—“unbrok
en and satisfactory service;” that is the
demand made by the army, “for 25 years”
before the award is made.
“Mrs. Main and I are the youngest
veterans in the Salvation Army,” Cap
tain Main said with pride. “We have
been very happy in our work; our home
has been blessed with six children, al
though only two of them are now living;
and by the way. my boy who was with
the 110th Pennsylvania infantry, was the
most disappointed youngster in the world
when after four months of training he
was not sent to France; he is a talented
boy, an excellent musician, and noth
ing would have made him happier than
to have been sent ‘over there’ to fight
for his country.
“Perhaps you have never met any /me
before from Yonkers, have you?’ Cap
tain Main asked and when I declared that
l hadn’t be told me that, that little city
was his birthplace. ”1 joined tlie army
there, was converted there, and when 1
received my. first commission after go
ing through the regular training school
at Brooklyn, it was Peekskill; later I
was sent to Philadelphia and then to
; various points in Virginia, Ohio, Illinois,
j and Michigan, finally back to Philadel
i phia, where I served at provincial head
i quarters on Colonel Holz’s staff, of which
• the gulf division, now in my charge, is
a part. 1 was secretary for the depart
ment of special efforts and when war
was declared I had charge of a large
district in the east, for which 1 was re
sponsible for our war work. It was the
largest division in the army, from one to
three and four hundred Salvationists un
der my jurisdiction.
“In the gulf division I have five states
in my charge," Captain Main said,
which means that I must visit 20 cities
in each of these states every six months
and also take care of our war work,
appointing committees and interesting
people in the big allied war workers cam
paign now imminent, of which we are a
part.
“So much has been said and written
about the work of the Salvation Army
•Over There,’ ” said Captain Main, “and
on the whole everything has touched
upon the material side, doughnuts, apple
pie, and the physical comfort, of the
men: all this 1 like, but I also like for
people to stop and realize that this is
only a means to an end. We get the
| boys into our huts and give them some
i thing good to eat, then convert the hut
into an assemblage ball and interest the
! boys in the spiritual side—Ringing, pray
ing, talking—and we have attained our
end. The old saying that the easiest way
j to reach a man’s heart is through his
I stomach verifies itself in this case: it
was General Pershing himself who asked j
I our Colonel Barker if our Salvation Army j
I lassies could make apple pie, declaring :
I he had not had any worth eating since j
| he left home. One of our lassies imme- j
diately replied that she could make the
! pies, and forthwith got busy and when !
i General Pershing and his staff sat down
i to their mid-day meal in/the little Sal
ivation Army hut, six steaming beautiful
apple pies fit for a king greeted them.
1 That’s the way the idea originated and
! it has certainly been a happy one for
1 those dear boys ’’Over There.’ ’
| “But far better than all this is the fact
! that the last face that the soldier boy
I sees before he goes ‘Over the Top,' ”
! said Captain Main, “the last voice that
| breathes a prayer for him before he ,
! plunges into battle, is that of the Sal- |
j ration Army lassie or lad, who is closer!
I to the firing line than anyone else ex-j
cent the boys themselves. General Persh
ing has given his personal praise to our
work ‘Over There,’ and it; has gratified
us very much. The spiritual influence
exerted is nothing short of wonderful,
hundreds and hundreds of our boys have
been converted through the Salvation
Army and this has made us very, very
happy. »
“You can readily see from this how
necessary It is for us to continue the
good work there,” said Captain Main,
“and in order to continue it there we
must continue it here—double, treble,
quadruple— our efforts, and not allow our
soldier boys to feel that there is one ,
stone left unturned for their physical j
and spiritual welfare!”
ANOTHER DRASTIC
COT IN SUGAR FOR
FOUNTS IS SHOWN
November Distribution Or- j
der Makes No Change in
Allotment for Hotels
and Cafes
Montgomery, October 18.—(Special.)—Di
rections for the proper distribution of
sugar in Alabama during November, re
ceived by the food administration Thurs
day, show another drastic cut in the
supply for bottlers, manufacturers, soda
fountains and others. There will be
no changes in the allotment of sugar
for hotels, cafes and boarding houses.
The instructions, rn«de public by George
Ft. Wright, chief ol the sugar division
of the food administration, follow:
"Manufacturers, bottlers, soda founts
and dispensers of soft drinks will re
ceive one-fourth the average amount of
sugar used during the three months of
July, August ancl September, 1917. which,
under ordinary circumstances, means half
as much as they received during the
months of July, August, September an i
October, this year.
"Manufacturers of ice cream have ijow
been put in the same class as soft drinks
and will receive an allowance during
November equal to one-fourth of their
monthly average consumption during
July, August and September, 191»A
"Manufacturers of candy have the same
basis of allotment as was used dur
ing July, August, September and October,
i. e., 50 per cent of the amount of sugar
used during July, August and September,
1917. Where candy manufacturers have
furnished this office with figures cover
ing their consumption of sugar during
the last six months of 1016, and the
last six months of 1917, they will be
allotted one-half of the average amount
of sugar used during these two six
month periods, provided it is more than
what they received on the basis used
during the last four months.
"Licensed bakers will be allotted the
same amount of sugar as in October,
but they have the privilege of furnish
ing sworn figures showing the sugar used
during the last six months of 19iG, and
the last six months of 1017, and receiv
ing 70 per cent of the average amount
of sugar used during these two ^ix
rnonth periods* provided they find this
basis is more advantageous.
"There are no changes in the allotment
i of sugar to hotels, cafes, restaurants
| and boarding houses,
i "There are no changes in the allotment
| or the rules applicable to retail rper
I chants selling sugar for direct consump
| tion.” *

PROSPERITY OF
GREAT NORTHWEST
By HOLLAND
Now York, October 18. (Special.) At
the beginning1 of the third week of the
campaign throughout the United States
for the marketing of six billions of Lib
erty Bonds, a report was received in
New York that Minneapolis and St. Louis
headed the list, each of these districts
having met and more than met their al- •
lotmenta. So far as St. Louis is con- j
cerned, this achievement is spoken of |
here as a splendid refutation of the !
statement some time ago made that St.
Louis is a .strongly pro-German city.
There are several reasons why the
Ninth federal reserve district of which
Minneapolis is the center should have
been able in record time to 'meet in full
its allotment of the Liberty Loan bonds.
Probably nowhere in the United States,
except Cincinnati and St. Louis, has
there been perfected a finer organization
for the sale of Liberty Bonds than in
this great agricultural region of the
northwest. The campaigners there learned
a great deal from the r experience when
trying to market the first Liberty Loan.
This district is a farming community.
The farmers as a class knew nothing a
year and a half ago about investments
in bonds or securities. Many of ths
campaigners at the time of the first Lib
erty Loan discovered that the farmers
thought that if they subscribed for a
bond the payment of the money was a
gift to the government, exactly as a sub
scription to the Bed Cross fund would
have been an outright gift. Necessarily
much patience and perseverance were
necessary on the part of the campaign
ers. This involved the giving of detailed
information to the farmers whereby thej
were able to perceive that if they bought
a bond it was as good as cash, or better
than deposit in any bank, and that it
would return to them interest upon cer
tain dates w ith the certainty that* the
principal would be paid when due, be
cause the United States^ltself was the
debtor and it was inconceivable that the
United States would default upon an ob« •
ligation of this kind.
The first campaign in the northwest
was a desperate struggle to gain a vic
tory, but the victory was at last won.
The experience which campaigners met
with as well as the experience"which
was the happy lot of the farmers wha
bought bonds in tne first campaign,
served very well when the second offer
ing and thi third offering were made.
There was. however, one serious obsta
cle which the sal* ; men were compelled
to face, . nd that was the long distances,
far awa.\ from the 1 abroad lines vver
rough nails, many times no roads at all,
which bad to be covered if every farm
er in the district was to be met. In
the New York district no obstacles of
this kind stood in the way of campaign
JNow tiio farmers of me norm west bib
as eager as are the citUeris of the St.
Louis district, or as we here of the
large metropolitan district of which Cin
cinnati is the "center, to make invest
ment of some portion of their savings or
income in Liberty Bonds. They have
been able to do this because they have
cultivated their soil this year so that
the results have been magnificent. All
of the crop reports from the Ninth dis
trict which were received up to the first
of October, were very gratifying. Thesi
reports indicated that the aggregate
yield of all fine and coarse grains has
run way beyond expectation, ana fur
thermore, the crop production of the cits*
triet was at one. tune underestimated
WHAT THE BANKERS SAY
The bankers of the Ninth district and
especially the federal reserve bank.
| have had visible evidence of the enor
mous money value of this year’s* crop
because the federal bank Issued inore
than twice the currency required in
order to move the last year’s crop. The
farmers are now receiving unexampled
money returns for their crops. The
estimate is that they will receive as
much money for their crops this year as
represents one-sixth or perhaps Inore
of the aggregate amount of the fourth
Liberty Loan. This is all new wealth
! represent in _ labor, investment of cap
ital and the prim- iv yield of the soil.
[ Therefore, it is no wonder that it was
(possible to report at the beginning of
the third week of t he. Liberty Loan
j campaign that the northwest, which a
(generation ago was almost undeveloped,
■'has been able within two weeks to meet
| to the full the allotment of the Liberty
LLoan.
» That St. lamia should have also cov
ered so great an achievement as is re
Elected by the report that St. Louis
went ‘over the top” within 14 days
is a demonstration of the rapidly in
creasing1 wealth of the southwest, of
which St. Louis is the metropolis. Much
of that is agricultural wealth, some of
it mineral wealth. St. Louis is also
expanding her commerce by water and
the recent dispatch of barges laden
with commodities whose destination
was to be New Orleans is regarded
as the protagonist of a very great wa
ter commercial development which will
he of especial advantage to St. Louis
and New Orleans. The St. Louis district
has also received large amounts of
money from the government in payment
for commodities or supplies which were
manufactured in the district or which
originated there. Part of these funds
no doubt were returned to the govern
ment temporarily in the form of loans,
the evidence of which is the bonds of
the Fourth Liberty Loan. So. too, the
information that Cincinnati was able to
report at the beginning of the third
week that It lias subscribed in ex
cess of its quota, undoubtedly may be
in part explains why the enormous
amounts of money which are being^iaid
to the industrial workers of Cincinnati
and the Ohio district.

RED CROSS BULLETIN
RED CROSS BULLETIN
The work of the American Red
Cross has grown to such proportions
in Its efforts to relieve suffering hu
manity that The Age-Herald will
publish a Red Cross bulletin daily.
Contributions to this column from
workers throughout the district will
be welcomed.
SEED STILL NEEDED
Hundreds of thousands of peach seeds
and nut shells have been collected in
Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama in
the last two weeks and made into car
bon to be placed in gas masks for Ameri
can soldiers in France.
While the American Red Cross workers
are fighting influenza at home with 'flu
masks/' making them by the many hun
dreds at a time, soldiers over there must
not be forgotten.
Every chapter in the gulf division com
posed of Louisiana, Mississippi and Ala
bama has been urged to renew its ef
forts in the collection of the peach stones
and nut shells now. Two hundred peach
stones make enough carbon for one gas
mask, while seven pounds of nut shells
will protect one American soldier from
German poison fumes.
Reports are being received daily at
the gulf division headquarters here tell
ing of the collection of the seeds and
shells. Albert Kraerner, assistant direc
tor in the bureau of development, and in
charge of the .bureau of conservation
work, is enthusiastic over the results so
far. lie urges all chap|ers, however, to
renew their efforts.
Food administration officials, juniors
of the Red Cross, Boy Scouts and many
other government agencies are co-operat
ing in this emergency campaign. In hun
dreds of grocery stores, department
stores and elsewhere, the proprietors have
placed small boxes for the collection of
the nut shells and seeds.
CHRISTMAS PACKAGES
Only one parcel will be accepted by the
war department through the American
Red Cross for each soldier oversea, it is
announced in regulations today from
Washington.
Each soldier will be provided with one
Christmas parcel label. This label will
be forwarded by him to the person in
the United States from whom heVwishes
to receive his Christmas package. Pack
ages that do not bear this label will
not be accepted by the American Red,
Cross for delivery to postoffice author
ities. Labels that are lost will not be
duplicated. Christmas parcels must be
placed in cardboard boxes three inches
by four inches by nine inches in size.
These boxes will be provided to holders
of labels by the American Red Cross.
They may be obtained at American Red
Cross chapters and branches after .No
vember 1.
With each box will be given complete
instructions regarding articles which may
be sent and a list of articles which are
barred by postal authorities. Study these
instructions and avoid mistakes. No
message or written material of any kind
will be allowed in the boxes. When
the boxes are packed but unwrapped
they must not weigh more than two
pounds and 16 ounces. If the parcel is
overweight some article must be re
moved.
Do not put perishable food, soft candy,
liquids or anything in glass containers
in the package if you wish it to reach
its destination with the other contents
unspoiled. Do not mail the box your
self. When packed the box should be
taken to Hie nearest collection station
designated- by the American Red Cross
unsealed and unwrapped ready for in
spection.
The American Red Cross representa
tives are authorized to remove objec
tionable articles from parcels. Shippers
will then affix sufficient postage on
their parcels to carry them to Hoboken,
N. Y. Parcel post rates will be charged.
Parcels are to remain in custody of tiie
American Red Cross until delivered to
postal authorities.
No Christmas parcel will be accepted
by the American Red Cross for ship
ment after November 20. Keep this fact
in mind when planning merry Christmas
for the boys over there.
CALL TO WAR WORK
A splendid opportunity for war service
is offered through the chapter course
i:i home service whioh began recently
and will continue daily for several weeks
under the leadership of Miss JLabouisse
of the gulf division staff of the Ameri
can Red Cross.
Those women of Birmingham who long
to give themselves completely to their
country have their chance now, by serv
ing in the homes of soldiers and sail
ors. No lon«£r is it admissible to feel
discouraged or useless because one can
not go to France; while such a tre
mendous and vital work calls at our own
doors: /-Perhaps it is this very nearness
that causes many to lose their perspec
tive and overlook this work that is clos
est to the hearts of the boys—those boys
who have gone, believing and assured
that we would not let their people suf
i fer—their choice would be that we would
| serve first their child or wife or parent
only so can their hearts and minds he
