SALT LAKE. Nov. 11. A tremen

raise enough money for the United
War Work fund to put Utah over (ho

worked until late Saturday, many
were -working yesterday and all day
today and this evening they will be go

contributions to the fund for tho sol

Saturday afternoon showed splendit
results of tho big demonstration. Bui
as a whole donations, -while fairly nu
merous, are not large enough. It is
feared that perhaps peace talk has had
something to do -with the lack of en
thusiasm demonstrated by some cill

that the money being raised for the
United War Work campaign is needed
more now that peace is In sight thai:

1 Advices from the National Catholic
War Council headqunrters bring daily
indications that tho archbishops and
': bishops of the United Stales are active
in the work being done to make the
' big United War Work drive for its
$170,500,000 fund a great success. The
member of the heirarchy are working
in perfect unison with the Y. M. C. A.,
J Y. W. C. A..-Jewish Welfare Board.
War Camp Community Service, Li
brary Association, and Salvation
Army, which organizations will hold
their drive for funds.
Cardinal Gibbons Approves.
Cardinal Gibbons in his letter to the
clergy of the Archdiocese of Baltimore
! said in part:
j "Whilo it remains true that there
1 will he a merging of forces, a magnifi-1
cent opportunity is here presented for
adding glory to tho church. It is high-'
ly important, therefore, that every ef- j
i fori bo made to'raise.the amount, so'
i that all may see how dear to our '
I hearts is the cause of liberty and frec-
' doiu."
I Cardinal O'Connell of Boston voices'
similar sentiments. At San Francisco
i Archbishop Hanna has ever' been a
Idominationg figure in all of the confer
j ences. Archbishop Glennon has dono '
I his share in St. Louis, and Bishop!
'Rhode, speaking for over throe, mil-
1 lions of Poles, is an outstanding pres
ence at Milwaukee. Bishop Conroy
created intenso enthusiasm at Syra
cuse while speaking for the drive, and
Bishop Nilan was the principal speak
er at an immense gathering held at
New Haven. In tho south, Bishop Rus
sell of Charleston was prominent In
the conference in that city, and Bishop
Allen of Mobile is strong for the big
Volunteers at Work.
Thousands of volunteers working un
der the direction of the Jowish Wcl

States, and the families of the Jewish
soldiers served by the board, aro mo
bilizing their resources in support of
tho nation's war effort.
At the present timo the Jewish Wel

Cured Husband And Child,
Wife And Molhcr
Mrs. A.' Jennings, 1731 Armltage
avenue, Chicago. III., writes:
"I heard of Mcnthn-Laxene about,
two years ago, and sfnee then would
not be without it. My husband had
boon coughing for about, four years,
summer and winter, and now he ic
cured of it, and for my child I think
there is nothing better in the world
for a cold, for it helps al once."
The best cough, cold, and catarrh
medicino ever found is tho essence
Mentho-Laxene. Directions with a 2Vi
ounce bottle, concentrated, tell how to
make at home a full pint of delicious,
curative medicine. Advertisement.
Novel ideas have been the ruJ.e in
the successful enterprise of the Amer
ican Red Cross Society but another
just introduced will at any rate equal
any before used. By the new method
it is hoped to help local chapters of
the society to get around the difficul
ty of procuring yarn for knitting.
A group of traveling salosme.n are
touring the country advising the chap
ters what to buy and where lo buy it
to the best advantage. Their advice
is restricted purely to the purchase of
wool and they will point out the ways
in which the National Woolgrowers'
association has been able to corner for
Uncle Sara and his fighting men the
choicest wool on the market.
The new allotment plan lo the Red
Cross has cut off the promiscuous
buying of yarns and woolen materials
for making soldiers' garments and has
limited the supply to each chapter to
the allotment made by national head
quarters at Washington. D. C. This
discourages the buying by chapters or
individuals of yarn from outside sour
ces. According to word received at
local headquarters, no materials should
be obtained for Red Cross purposes
except through a Red Cross chapter,
unless the chapter should be unable
to meet the demands made upon It.
The traveling salesmen are meeting
the situation by visiting every Red
Cross branch throughout tho country
and advising that if workers cannot
get yarn from headquarters they are
privileged to buy it from whatever
source they can. but not otherwise.
This plan was favored by the war
industries board. A recent delay in
shipment of wool has made speci.il
purchases by some chapters and indi
viduals absolutely necessary.

AMSTERDAM. Nov. 11. (By the As
sociated Press) German garrisons
aloug the Dutch frontier are reported
in revolt. Officers are being disarm
ed and being treated roughly in some
work: Camp service, community serv
ive. overseas service, information
service, personal welfare service,
training school, personnol publicity,
revenue, auditing and accounting, ma
terial and construction.
With the extension of the draft ages.
Uic resources and forces of ihe board
must- be 0x4 ended. The home field
force must be increased to between
500 and 600; there must bo at least 300
overseas workers; instead of forty-two
buildings there must bo at least 100.
The board's quota of the fund to be
raised by tho United War Work Cam
paign will be devoted to these purposes.
When They Get Through I
Fighting-That's When We I
Can Help Most! I
&J7 HEN the fighting is over, when an armistice comes, H
WW Lvhen peace and victory are established then will H
" come the long, long period of demobilization. H
In other wars, that change from military back to civil H
life has been a dangerous one. H
Let's make it easy', safe and smooth for our Yanksf ' U
i Let's see that every hour of every day while they are H
city 'ing up the job and waiting for their ships, is filled with
wholesome fun and entertainment. Let's give them lots to WM
do and lots to see and hear. H
Think what it can mean to millions of Americans to get JH
j .acquainted with the real France the history, the traditions, H
'the art and beauty which they ewe done so much to save! wM
Plans are mapped out to make our period of demobilize H
ation a regular "khaki university" and every soldier' can !
come home with something of the background of those who !
used to go abroad to study. H
In camps and huts and billets here and over there our JH
fighters have shown that they want to get ahead. Books that
instruct, books on technical subjects and onrivics, on govern-
. ment, on history and business, are in greater demand than
. books of fiction. H
When our fighters come back they will be better men in
j every way than when they left. But we must slay with them
. until they get back home! H
J The war f or morale will go on long af ter the war against I
Germany is won. Let's help to make the months of waiting H
for transports a fine, wholesome lime full of improving
influences. The money we give to these seven societies will
insure this. H
Don't wait to be asked. Fill in the "Official Pledge" to- I
dai; and give as liberally as you can. We want to report
