WHITE BREAD BY TRAINLOAD
CONSUMED BY U. S. SOLDIERS AMERICAN REGULATION BASE IN FRANCE, Nov. 5. —; Bread for tbe American soldiers is brought here by trainloads from the great army field bakery a few miles dis tant, one train of 30 cars a day, all loaded with white bread from the best of wheat flour. One such train was arriving as the Associated Press correspondent visited the base. Another trainload of refrigerated beef arrived soon afterward from the great refriger ating plant at Clevre. It was the same with other class es of supplies, rations, forage, fuel and oil; all came in huge bulk to this concentrating and distributing point, for this is one of the great nerve centers of supplies for the fighting men. Here the trainloads are broken up into 15 parts, two cars to a part, and each part goes toward making up a new “automatic train” carry ing supplies of all kinds to the sol diers, 15 trains a day, automatically leaving for the front loaded with food or fighting material. Puffing yard engines were doing the work of splitting up the trains and reforming new ones. Gradual ly the confused mass of cars, the bread and meat trains melted away and the 15 automatic trains took definite form. As they were com pleted they moved off to sidings to take their turn in the steady stream of trains moving out to the fighting front. This is the process, repeated day after day, in the formation of the automatic trains, that marvel of transportation that has so bewilder ed and surprised the foreign observ ers. The last stage as the supplies pass to the troops at the front is where the automatic train reaches the tail-head of the division. Each American division has its fixed rail head, or terminal, where the train delivers its daily quota. r.i— STEEANSSONS “BLOND ESKIMOS” DESCRIBED BY ARCTIC EXPLORER SEATTLE, Nov. 6. — “Sure they are ‘blond Eskimos.’ They are aborigines living up in the white Arctic on Victoria Land in their primeval state, absolutely untouch ed by the outside world’s civiliza tion. They are completely out of contact with everything and, con sequently, have none of our im provements and none of our evils.” W. J. Bower, known along the Arctic coast as “Levi” Bower, one of the very few men who have gone from the outside into the far north ern almost fabled land of the “blond Eskimos,” thus described them when he was here recently. “And I don’t think it was Stef ansson who first found them,” Bow er asserted. Vilhjalmur Stefansson, returned Canadian Arctic explorer, who has been credited with discov ering the strange tribe, agrees with Bower that he did not find them first. He does, however, claim that he made the first study of the tribe and brought back to the outside world the first report of its exist ence. REVIVING RIFLE PRACTICE HERE GOLDFIELD RIFLE CLUB REOR GANIZED WITH PLANS FOR BIG INCREASE There was a meeting Monday night at the recorder’s office in the court house with a view to reviv ing the Goldfield Rifle club. The meeting was called in response to a request of the adjutant general and the national council of defense and many members of the club respond ed. Officers were elected as follows: President, Judge J. Emmet Walsh; vice president, A. H. Howe; secre tary, Bert Ward; treasurer, W. E. Zoebel; executive officer, Clarence Sage. The officers constitute the execu tive committee. By-laws were adopted in the form | AMUNDSEN AND STORKERSON ON PERILOUS ARCTIC TRIPS SEATTLE, Oct. 31.—Two Arctic explorers, Roald Amundsen, noted Norwegian, drifting in his ice-lock ed boat eastward from the Altantic, and Storker Storkerson, lieutenant of Vilhjalmur Stefannson, Canadian explorer, floating westward from the pacific on an ice pack, are both believed approaching the New Si berian islands, which jut out of the Arctic ocean off the mouth of the l^ena river in Siberia. Authorities credited with knowing the Arctic currents believe the two will reacl; the islands early next year. No other explorers are now in the arctic and it is thought very likely that neither Amundsen nor Storker son knows the other has the same goal in mind. They probably will not meet, for Storkerson is expect ed to arrive ahead of Amundsen According to Stefansson and Bow er, a Captain Klinkerberg, master of the whaling schooner Olga, in 1905 pushed northwest to Victoria brand, where he found the blonde tribe. On his return to the whal ing base at Herschel island, an Arc tic ocean point, he told of his find ings. Stefansson, then at Herschel, heard Klinkerberg’s story and im mediately went to Victoria, where he made a study of the natives. Bower claimed the “blond Eski mos’’ are really blond. Stefansson does not go that far, but says they have light gray, almost blue eyes and a few have light hair and eye brows. Bower pointed out that the “blond” natives have round, full eyes, while the other Eskimos of the far north have the slant eyes of Asiatics. “It looks as if the ‘blond Esmi mos’ came from early Greenlanders, or Scandinavian stock of some kind,” Bower said. "I know they are not half white and half Eskimo because the half-breed Eskimos have black eyes and black hair.” prescribed by the government for the use of clubs of the National Rifle association. Membership in the ciub does not bind the members to military service. The name adopted is the Gold field, Nevada, Rifle club and its charter will issue from the National Rifle association. An initiation fee of one dollar m as fixed, with annual dues of one dollar, both payable in advance. The sole object is marksmanship and certain guns and ammunition will be furnished by the govern ment free. Those desiring to join the club may file their application with the secretary, Bert Ward. The Home Guard will be especial ly in\ ited to join and several mem bers cf that organization, who were members of the old rifle club, were present Monday night and expressed the view that the Guard will prob ably join in a body. Credit Goes to Pennsylvania. Judge Jesse Fell of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., although he was not the discov erer of anthracite, is generally given credit for its introduction as a fuel. and probably will land far west of Amundsen’s course. Amundsen, the discoverer of the south pole and navigator of the difficult northwest passage, is on the first lap of a journey to the north pole. He expects to make the last lap by airplane. Storker son is bound back in the general di rection of civilization after spending several years in the Arctic. Both are seeking new lands and studying the currents and life of the north ern ocean. When Amundsen reaches the Si berian islands, the current, it is be lieved, will turn and carry him north. He is expected to remain with the drift until it lands him on the immovable ice far upward to ward the pole. There, according to his plans, he will establish a base and attempt to fly the rest of the distance to the top of the globe. SLAPS AT SLACKERS By ALICE KILLIAN. •*No, I haven’t done any knitting yet, but I'ui going to soon. You see, I’ve been so dreadfully busy with other pa triotic service. One can't do everything at once, can one? I shall begin with knitting socks. I don’t see why peo ple waste time on scarfs and sweaters when socks are so much needed. H1 shall make socks with gay colored tops. Bright colors aid the morale, I'm sure. It would be a terrible thing to have our soldiers barefoot Just because the women aren’t alive to the necessity of knitting enough stocks. 1 think I’ll make a little speech at our Red Cross auxiliary on ’Swelling the Sock Supply.' “You see, that’s one of my ways of helping. I’m a voluntary speaker at the Red Cross auxiliaries. I was talk ing to a surgical dressings group yes terday on ’Folding for France.’ I know that I inspired the workers with new zeal, for when I had finished talking one of the women said to me, ‘Why don’t you stay and help us yourself? You have made us all feel that we need every worker we can get.’ I had to ex plain that other duties called. “No, I haven’t done much in surgicnl dressings yet. I find it makes me nerv ous. Many people really like to fold gauze. I think they should be unremit ting in their work. How terrible it would be if any of our brave boys should suffer Just because women at home don’t realize the need for count less pads, sponges and compresses. Something should be done to spur them on to greater efforts. I think I shall have to do more speaking, although just now it will be hard for me to give up any more time, because I am tak ing golf lessons. “I don’t know why you should look surprised, I might almost say shocked, at the mere mention of golf. We all know that the health of the nation is a large part of its wealth. I consider It a patriotic duty to get plenty of fresh air and exercise* “Gardening? Well, of course, one does get fresh air and exercise spad ing and hoeing, but I don’t think they have the same effect on the physique that outdoor sports have. Do you? I have observed that farmers und mar ket gardeners don’t have the same bright complexions and free carriage that golf and tennis players acquire. However, I believe thoroughly in pa triotic gardens, and I shall further them all I can by speaking. I think I shall call my little talk ‘Seeding for Safety.’ Don’t you like that? It will be frightful If we don’t have food for our allies Just because people are asleep. “Then there’s the preserving of vege tables and fruits. “No, I don’t do It myself, for I can’t stand the heat of a stove In summer, but last year I had my maid do a great deal of canning. As It happened, most of the things she put up spoiled. She i Is not clever at following written di rections, and I was not able to be In the kitchen much myself. However, I feel that we made our start and this seuson she will profit by last year’s experience. “I suppose you’re buying war savings stamps? I’m intensely interested in their sale. It would be a fearful thing If the men, women and children of this [ country did not respond to the call of the government for funds to push the war. People should buy to the limit. “No, I haven’t bought to the $1,000 limit myself yet, as I have a great many expenses connected with my war work. One is asked to give in so many [ directions, and then, of course, going about speaking as I do requires cor rect clothes, and In bad weather ray taxi fares are really quite an item. “I do wish you would come to hear me speuk on ‘Stamping Out Sedition’ and 'Bonds Are Bombs.’ I’m quite sure that if you could hear either speech you would feel that you must lend ev ery dollar you can possibly spare to Uncle Sara. A woman said to me the other day that after hearing me urge economy she quite understood why so very few people were buying spring suits this season. She looked right at my new broadcloth, which is plain but very handsome. I think she realized that I had been patriotic In my selec tion of a suit, for It Is true economy to buy good material. “Sometimes I am perfectly aghast at the numbers of slackers there ure who do nothing to help win the war. I should think people would be ashamed j not to do their part in this tremendous struggle. Indeed, I am so much exer cised about the apathy of nonworkers I know, who neither knit, sew, conserve food nor save for the nation, thut I’m getting up a little speech called "Slaps for Slackers.’ I do hope you will come to hear It” Age and Youth. The older man who remembers a younger whom he has once met and greets him on the street Is an excep tional person. And the younger man who, on being thus remembered and greeted, feels neither pleasure nor gratitude, Is an exceptional person. If the deferential respect of the young is gratifying to the elderly, the notice and the Interest of the elderly are stimulating to the young, observes a writer in Youth’s Companion. To think of each person whom you meet as an individual, however young he may be, to try to discover In what ways he is individual, and to charge the memory with the impression of him—those should be regarded as so cial obligations by people who have at tained middle age and who with it should have acquired some degree of wisdom and of interest In the human kind.

C., Nov. 5. — Plans for training and placing in remunerative positions soldiers and sailors maimed in the war worked out by the United States employ ment service and the federal board for vocational education are ready to be put into operation. The employment service has in structed its representatives through out the country to obtain informa tion that will be helpful in the plac ment of partly disabled soldiers and sailors. Surveys of labor needs will lie made in conference with em ployers to determine where such men can be used efficiently. The board for vocational educa tion will maintain in each hospital for the treatment of wounded a representative who will confer with disabled men before their discharge from the hospital.
