for fix months thorpnf ter, the Penn
sylvania Railnad ill suspend its
rule which prohibits the luring of
new employes above, the okp of 45
years, and will en gape men between
45 iind 70.
The?.? men will n -rlnce th younp
er employes who shortly will join the
colors for military service.
Official announcement of this
news was made yesterday. It was
added, however, that inasmuch as
this employment will not be consid
ered permanent, It will not carry
with it the pension privileges which
others employed by the Pennsylvania
enjoy.
Put there will be pood jobs, .nnd
their r.-w holders will at the sr. mo
time be performing a patriotic ser
vice in maintaining one of the na

"Cooks who guard the larder are true
soldiers," declared Harry E. Barnard,
Indiana food and drjp commissioner, to
day, in an appeal addressed to house
wives of the state, asking their co
operation In the food conservation tam
paign. "Every cook whs contrives a way
to save food is doing just as patriotic
a service as if she were enlisted in
Red Cross work, and in her efforts to
reduce the wast of fats or to use other
cereals instead of wheat flour, she is
helping the Sammies in Prance quite
as surely as if she were knitting socks,"
Barnard said.
"There i3 no doubt at all as to the
value of kitchen thrift. The difficulty
cornea with bringing: home to the cook
fcerself the vitally important part she
is playinp In putting: the excellent sug
gestions showered upon her into prac
tice. "But we know now that the crops our
fields are prowinp must sufiiee not only
for cur own needs and the heavy de--niands
of the boys whom we are send
ing 3 000 miles to the trenches, but per
haps the most important task ahead of
us is feeding the armies of our allies
in the field and the civilian population
in France. Belgium and England. And
so every pound of food we save from
wasteage is ammunition that will do
its part in bringing the war quickly
to an end. It does not matter where the
saving: is made. The little economies of
the working man's wife, who is alreauy
at her wits' end to feed her family, r.nd
the large savings in the household of
the millionaire are both needed. Xo
doubt the housewife who puis on her
gingham apron and groes into the kitchen
to superintend the preparation of food
can do more real service than the wom
en of wealth whose desire to help is
handicapped by the very size of the
retinue of servants she employs. But
there is need for every form cf economy
that will save an ounce of food, and
every cook is draft-id to the universal
service."
