WANTS TO KNOW WHIT ID Senator Walsh Introduces Res olution and It's Adopted by the Senate. The Post's Washington Bureau. Washington, D. C., April 18.—The senate, on motion of Senator Walsh, has adopted the following: "Resolved. That the »ec re tar y of ag riculture be requested to transmit to the senate information as to whether and what part of the land within the Crow Indian reservation, in the state of Montana, is susceptible of cultiva tion to cereal crops without irrigation: what amount of wheat or other bread stufTs could be raised thereon, and what addition to the annual food sup Ply the nation would he secured, if the said reservation settlement."

MAN WITH HOE Ohio Congressman Suggests a Plan to Increase Food Producers. The Post's Washington Bureau. Washington, D. C., April 18. An Ohio member of congress—Representa tive K. R. Bathriok—has devised an interesting plan of creating "an army with hoes." He asserts that the man wno can handle the hoe is as essential In the war with Germany as the man who ran handle the rifle. To the end. therefore, of recruiting an "army with hoes,'' Representative Bathriok pro poses to introduce an amendment to the army organization bill under which the government, when it creates an army to use rifles, will enlist also an array of 100,000 men to use hoes in increasing the production of the coun try so as to sustain the lives not only of the soldiers who go to the front but also of the civilian population. He would obtain these "veterans with hoes" by selective conscription, if necessary, from among male citizens between 30 and 35 years of age, leav ing the younger men to hear arms. Once organised, the veterans with hoes would be subject to be ordered from one part of the country to an other where their services would be most needed in raising crops and they would be paid by ,the government just as soldiers are paid. DEFINED. "What is your definition of a philan thopist?" asked the Old Fogy. ''A philanthropist is a man who will give 10 cents to a good cause on con dition that the cause raise an addi tional 90 cents," replied the Grouch. Use Zemo for Eczema Never mind how often you have tried and failed, you can stop burning, itching eczema quickly by applying a little zemo funded by any druggist for 25c. Ex tra iSge bottle, $1.00. Healing begins the moment zemo is applied. Ina short time usually every trace of eczema, tet ter, pimples, rash, black heads and sim ilar skin diseases will be removed. For clearing the skin and making it vigorously healthy, always use zemo. the penetrating, antiseptic liquid. It is not a greasy salve and it does not stain. When others Jail it is the one dependable treat-, mrnt for skin troubles of all kinds. TH ■. W. Rom Co., CloToland. O. I EXPEDITIONARY ARMY FOR EUROPE That is the Belief in Official Circles in National Capital. ie Post's Washington Bureau. Washington, D. C., April 17. "Belec .•e conscription" is the administra* tlon's plati to raise 600,000 men for war with (iermany. It is hinted directly in administration sources that any American man who does not wish to he known ns a con ipt should enlist today either in the regular army or the national guard. As soon as the regulars and guards men number respectively 287,000 and 400.000 men selective conscription will begin for an army half a million strong, according to the plan proposed. The army authorities have their con niption plan ready. Under the national defense act if there are not enough volunteers for guard service it is possible, under law us it exists, to conscript men to fill the guards' ranks. Under present conditions the regular army cannot be increased by conscrip tion. New legislation, however, will make this possible. The man who en lists today in the régulais or the guards is sure of first active service and can save himself for all time from any taunt that he entered the service other than as a volunteer. Selective conscription for an army of 500.000 men will be followed quickly, if the field of war is enlarged, by selec tive conscription of another half mil lion men. It is even regarded as prob able today that a further increment of half a million men may he necessary. There is a chance even under conscrip tion for a man to volunteer in tin* army raised by compulsory means. The wil ling men will be taken before the un illing, simply because their spirit makes them worth while. Of course the army ; uthorities do not disclose the details of the legi.sla tlon which they will pre pose to con gress for enactment, but tins much is known: The age of tin men chosen will be between 20 and 2 ." years, and it is probable that the sei ctive process will begin at the quarter -ontury mark. Unmarried men will be ;hoHon except in cases where married men can go without submitting theii families to the danger of lack of ir cans of sup port. When the regular arm y is ready to its full war strength, 287.000 men, and the national guard has its full quota, it is believed that an expeditionary force will be sent to Europe. President Wilson's statement that the war will involve "the most practi cal co-operation in counsel and ac tlon" with the allies Is taken to meai that the war on our part Is to be pushed and that if fighting Americans are needed on the front in France, to the front they will go. As soon as the legislation for the raising of an array vf 500,000 men is enacted the machinery to get the men will be established in cities and towns all over the country. This army is to be raised and there seems to be soi reason to believe that another just big will follow* it into the field. The army authorities hope that men with the volunteer spirit will seek action in behalf of their country by instant iistment either in tlie regulars or in the PREVENTABLE FIRES IN MONTANA ARE FEW Few states of the Union excel the record of .Montana in the number of preventable fires. While a compari son of fire causes In the United States compiled by the actuarial bureau of the National Board of Fire Underwriters shows that 21.4 per cent of all fires in the United States In 1915 were strictly preventable, only 18.4 per cent of Montana's fires were strictly pre ventable. Fourteen other states hav percentages of strictly preventable fires which are a fraction of one per cent less than Montana's, but for th greater part they are in the soutl The comparison is based on analysis of 500,000 fires. The comparison shows that while 21.4 of the fires in the United States are strictly preventable, 37.9 per cent are partly preventable and 40.7 per cent are from unknown causes, prob ably preventable. Figures on Montana's fires show 18.4 per. cent strictly preventable. 43 per cent partly preventable and 38.0 per cent from unknown causes, probably largely preventable.

Cocoanut Oil Fine for Washing Hair If you want to keep your hair in good condition, be . areful what you wash It with. Most soaps and prepared shamp«H»s ontain too mu» h alkali. This dri**s the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and is \ery harmful. Just plain mulsified cocoanut oil (which is pure and entire ly greaseless) is much better than the most expensive soap or anything else you can use for shampooing, as this can't possibly injure the hair. Simply moisten your hair with water and rub It in. One or two teaspoon fuls will make an abundance of rich, creamy lather, and oleanses the ha*r and scalp thoroughly. The lather rinses out easily, and removes every particle of dust. dirt, dandruff and ex cessive oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and It leaves it fine and silky, bright, fluffy and easy to manage. You can get mulsified cocoanut oil at most any drug store. It Is very cheap, and a few ounces is enough to last everyone in the family for months.
