ed thar he had called a committee
' meeting for tomorrow to discuss
meaurses for reduction in the cost of

t to offer, but declared that increase of
Jjffc i wages and decrease of working hours
i was not a panacea nor would govern-
ment ownership or control of utilities
solve the problem.
Relation of the price of wheal to
;ir the cost of living was debated by sev-
oral senators. Mr Gronna denied that
' ' the government':! wheat price guaran
tee causes undue prices for bread. He

Ii "What is this man Barnes doing?"

I "Mr. Barnes has be n criticized in1
JJ all the wheat states," Senator Gronna
h answered, "for bearing down the price
Be has made ever possible effort to I
JjJ reduce prices."
Senator Smith said if there was
profitering, the Sherman act afforded
an opportunity to break it up. He

Senator I'm man. Democrat, Nevada,
fold the senate Wheat and flour prices

ministration had opposed the wheat
fixing legislation.
Senator Thomas. Democrat, Colo

living was world-wide and asked If any

ROBERT MAJOR TELLS OF
EXPERIENCES WHILE WITH
AMERICAN ARMY IN FRANCE
Rohert V. Major, who saw service in
France and published one of th'' army
(Overseas papers, on his return home
cave the Standard the following inti
mate sketch of life in France as he
saw It:
'The folks at home see only fhc
military side of the American roldiers'
accomplishments in France, but one
who studied the gradual drifting of the
Yankee into the French home life, de
tectS an effort on the future of the
world far greater than that of our vic
tories on the battlefields.
W hile the daily bulletins were tell
ing of the growing American strength
on the front, the little black-haired
I "wondering stare at this big, eurlons
s(r;mcerof whom she had be.ird much
but seen little When he awkwardly
offi red her a package of chewing gum
to be followed next day by a bar of
Hershey'g she waa lost in the mental
confusion of custom and reality. Why
should he gi e her those dainties wheh
she didn't know what it was to have
plain sugar even in peace times? Ho
couldn't talk to her and she couldn't
talk to him. Nevertheless, side b
side, they could be seen strolling every
Sunday down the long shady lanes.
"The 'pollua1 returning on a furlouch
from the front, found his sweetheart
and sister entertaining a different
view of life than before he left. They
expected and demanded certain cour
tesies which French antiquated cus
toms granted only to the men.
"In short, the American soldier, big
and free. had. bv his actions, revealed
to the French girls that the gnat
I ideal which has made American what
j it is, Is reverence for womanhood.
"The American treated the little
French girl just as be had treated the
American girls. She, instead of expect
ing more and more conslderat ion, wa.i
'awed and delighted to think that some
I where in the world she was actually
appreciated.
"The climax came when Americans
learned to speak understandable
French, and told what their actions
i had indicated.
I "I remember last St. Patrick's day in
I Dax, a pretty little town 60 miles
south of Bordeaux, two companies of
i the 20th engineers were waiting for
I their string of cars to take them to

the first Americans to arrive in this I
little town and to s-how them a place
in flip hearts of the people, more than !
1 000 girls, old women and children gath
ered at the depot to say a laM fan -v
ell to the who had been so odd and
'interesting but a few months previous.
I 'I saw a corporal from Montana
I leaning against a tree. Clinging to his
arm vvas a little dark-eyed, fair-j
skinned girl of 17, her eyes swollen 1
from weeping. There was no noise j
except the audible sound of sobbing.
All around were similar sight.-
"1 was in this same village three
j months later. All animation so preva-:
lent when we were there was dead.,
The same silent solemnity which has
I marked the town for several hundreds
jof years had again assumed control.
, Rut nearly every girl I met, whether I
j knew her or not, ran to me with a let
jter she had received from the one who
I had made one year of her life mean so j
; much nore.
"The almost unpardonable mistake
; some of the soldiers make is Circulat
ing the story that all French girls
are bad. Were the conditions reversed
land French soldiers brought to Amcr
lice we would be very indignant if the
' French judged all our girls by those on
j the streets of New York There are
more than one hundred and sixty thou
sand girls on the streets of Raris alone.
They are not there because wantonly
bad. I have talked to many and in e
ery case they have lost a father, broth
i er or a husbaud and have no home or
position'.
"During the last four months in
France I attended the University of
Poitiers and lived in the home of a
professor of science in that institution.
Wlun the 250 American students had
finished their schooling and on July
1 were preparing to leave, the profes
Isor's 7-year-old girl made this remark
;at the dinner table: 'Well, mother, it is
goodbye to good times now. No more
i dances, no more parties, with ihe
I Americana goes all the animation and
pleasure.'
A peculiar change in feeling among
the men was here shown. At the depot
'scores of young French soldiers and
D erslty BtUdentS crowded around
I the Americans, as did the girls and
I wished them Godspeed. They came to
'our dances, etc., and learned our idea

"Peculiarly, the American voices
were easily distinguishable.
"A United States mar.ne secured a

along the grand boulevard. His forces,
augmented to several hundred men
and girls. As we marched through the
singing masses, the fellows would pull

costume who could not speak a word
of French but spoke good English and

Scowcrefts Are to
Build Warehouse
At Idaho Falls
Branching out with warehouse and
wholesale grocery stock, John Scow
croft & Sons company of Ogden. Is to
erect a 150,000 building at Idaho Falls.
The Post of Idaho Falls contains this
description of the expanding enter
prise of the big Ogden company:
Flans for the erection of a $5't,
000 warehouse in Idaho Falls to
house a $100,000 wholesale grocer
stock to be brought here by the
firm of John Scowcroft & Sons
of tigden. were announced Friday
by Heber Scowcroft, vice president
of the organization, who has been,
in Idaho Falls the past few days
making final arrangements.
Plans had been completed b
this firm for a warehouse build
ing to be erected on the propcm
next to the beet sood company's
warehouse, but later developments .
made this location undesirable. An
option was then secured for prop
erty on Eastern avenue and plans
will be made immediately for
building operations to start. , I
The present plans include a
building to be 100x100x1-10 feet,
the building to be strictly fire
proof, with sprinkler systems'
throughout and capable of housing
a $100,000 stock of groceries, to be
completed in November or Decem
ber. This firm will then be instru
mental in bringing sixty more peo
ple to Idaho Falls as well as a j
business that will extend over the
entire Snake River valley, and
which will bring to Idaho Falls
thousands of dollars' worth of new
business.
Mr. Scowcroft also stated that
they hoped in the future to bring
part of their extensive manufac
turing plant to Idaho Falls, but
was unable to state when this part
of the transfer could be made
This firm, according to Mr.
Scowcroft, had considered one oth
er town In connection with Idaho
Falls as a possible location for its
warehouse, but due to ihe fact
that Idaho Falls presents posslbll- i
ities for the future which no other
town could offer or duplicate, thoy
decided to come here

I Try Cico To-day
Cico Paste is an international triumph of the
Carter laboratories, made by an intricate
process which is one of the most valuable
secrets of the trade. There is no other
paste like Cico that sticks so well, that
is always ready for use, that requires no
water well, that spreads so thin and evenly
that is so generally well adapted for all
uses in both office and home.
CICO PASTE
The Cico desk jar, illustrated here, is
worthy of its calling. The brush is adjust
able, reaching every corner of the con
tainer. The brush guard keeps the paste
off the fingers and on the job, and
serves to seal the jar when the fa i
screw cap is temporarily laid fir
aside. The container exem- Qr
plifies three Cico qualities, J
economy, conve- f&
niencc, efficiency.
