Denver, Colo, Nov. 14.—Recent de
velopments in Europe have enabled
the Non War Construction Section of
the War Industries Board to issue
regulations permitting much greeter
activity in building operations. In
addition to construction allowed pre
viously without permit they have ad
ded the following:
All farm and ranch buildings,
structures or improvements; the con
struction, maintenance end Improve
ment or development of highways,
roads, boulevards, bridges, streets,
perks, and play-grounds; the con
struction, extension, improvement,
maintenance or repair of any public
utility;construction projects connect
ed with mining operations of every
character; and production and refin
ing of mineral oils and natural gas;
construction, alterations or additions
to plants engaged principally In pro
ducing or handling of food products;
construction or alteration In any
way of school houses, churches, hos
pitals, federal, state and municipal
buildings, Involving In the aggregate
cost not exceeding twenty-five thous
and dollars; construction of new
buildings or structures not embraced
In any of the foregoing; or the repair
in any way of existing buildings In
either case involving an aggregate
coat not exceeding ten thousand dol
lars; construction of new buildings
or structures not embraced In any of .
the foregoing; or alterations in any
way in aither case involving a cost
not exceeding tsventy-flve thousand
dollars, when approved in writing by
the State Council of Defense; build
ings begun prior to September 3d.
1918, where a substantial portion
has already been constructed.
The Rev. George E. Burlingame,
pastor of the Broadway Baptist church
of Denver, sttsndsd the recent confer
ence la Chicago of the chief execu
tives of the United War Work Com
ps lgn of the Central Department,
which Includes fourteen large states
with headquarters In Chicago. He
heard national representatives of all
isven war work organisations apeak
»f their work and needs and was so
impressed with the unprecedented
inity with which Catholic end Prot
istant, Jew and Gentile are working
ngether toward a single end, that hs
wrote the following article upon the
(rest need for the fund which the
United War Work Campaign MUST
also.
THE DOG POISONER
BROTHER TO KAISER
We do not know of anything to
call a dog poisoner that is mean
enough to fit him. He is a low-down
skunk and must be a brother to the
Kaiser to have a mind which stoops
to subject a dog to the slow, painful
death by poison. During the past
few days, this brute has poisoned the
two pet dogs belonging to Pete Slat
[ ten, two fine dogs, neither of which
would harm anything. Mr. Slatten,
has a good idee of who the guilty
party ia but has not the absolute
proof.
A recent magazine contained the
following tribute to a dog and we
only hope that the party who poi
i soned Mr. Sletten’s dog will read it
' and have brains enough to understand
, what it means: “The eye of
the dog was brighter than the eye of
• his destroyer, the heart of the dog
. was whiter end purer than the heart
1 of the one who killed him. The soul
of the dog was bigger end more wor
thy of immortality then the soul of
’ the poisoner. The owner’s grief was
■ a bigger tribute to the dog than bu
: mans will ever pay the assassin”
> It will be very well indeed for
' many a man if he can stand erect at
’ the last day before the great white
- throne and have it said of him that
i ha lived and loved as truly and de
cently as his dog.—Hotchkiss Herald.

Obtaining of great results. Religion
aad Patriotism —two mighty forces
that bare shaped the history of the
World —are the powerful reasons that
urge exceptional generosity upon the
people of our ’ country (which may
God ever bless) In response to the
appeal made for the soldier boys. To
give freely, to glee gladly, to gi»e un
til It hurta: should be the ambition of
men, women and children during the
drive. It's a duty but also a sweet
privilege, since ‘"tie more blessed to
give than to receive."
We urge pastors to inspire their
people, both by word and example, to
exceptional generosity. The price of
things worth while to humanity is the
personal sacrifice of those who work
for these things. Greater cause tor
the welfare of the world never ap
pealed to man than the war In which
we are victoriously engaged. Not the
soldier alone must be asked, or per
mltted, to bring all the sacrifice —God
bless him, he is our pride, our Joy and
hope—but we, too, who must stay at
home, needs must eagerly seek to
place our share of the sacrifice, which
the world must pay for the blessings
to be obtained, upon the altar of Im
molation. So sounds the cry of re
ligion. of patriotism, of conscience.

HUTS TO BE HIH
FOR HONOR STATES
SPEAKERS OP NATIONAL FAME

For the first states subscribing
their quotas In the United War
Work rampsIga tor soldiers, sailors
1 and marines. Nov. 11 to IS. five T. M.
C. A., three Knights of Columbus and
two Salvation Army kata will be
named la France. These huts are of
the deeaoentable type sad may be
readily knocked down and moved (or
ward to keep pace with the advanc
ing American army. It Is not Im
probable, therefore, that some of the
I “honor huts" will cross the Rhine It
Germany should refuse to accept
armistice terms to be Imposed upon
her.
Almost without exception each Indi
vidual church In every denomination
baa enlisted for this drive and Is
awaiting the opening gun, and their
enthusiasm is tremendous. Men and
women of national Importance have
enlisted as speakers, aad among them
are listed Judge Ben B. Lindsey,
Francis B. Sayre, son-in-law of the
president; Irvin 8. Cobb, Mrs. August
Belmont, Commander Evangeline
Booth of the Salvation Army, Gover
nor Arthur Capper of Kansas and Bar

COLORADO’S QUOTA FOR
WAR WORK INCREASED
FIFTY PER CERT
STATE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
UNANIMOUSLY VOTES TO MAKE
COLORAO'S QUOTA *1,9064001
Colorado's quota of *1.107,000 for
United War Work was Increased to
*1,906,000 at a meeting of the State
ExeouUve Committee of that organ
isation which met in Denver Friday,
November 2.
Referring to this Increase, Walter
8. Hopkins, campaign director tor
Colorado said: "In view of the fact
that the budgets for toe seven par
ticipating organisations were made
out last spring, when only a million
men were expected to be in . France
Instead of the 2,000,000 already there,
it Is easily seen that an Increase in
the quota was necessary."
Regardless of the Increase, Mr. Hop
kins is confident that the quota win
be oversubscribed because of toe
work already dona by the organisa
tions taking part In this consolidated
campaign—the Y. M. C. A., Y. W. a
A., War Camp Community Servlea,
Salvation Army, Knights of Colum
bus, Jewish Welfare Board, and
American Library Association.
Every city, county and school dis
trict throughout the stats has al

dairy cattle.

PINTO PRODUOERS PROSPER
Recently tbe U. S. Food Admlnls- .
tratton Grain Corporation bad the 1
placing of an order for ten million |
pounds of beans for a European na- .
tlon.
Plain Mr. Pinto Been of Colorado ‘
won this big order to be delivered In -
New York CKy December 16th.
The pries which will be paid la 7 !
seats act at Colorado shipping points,
$700,0*0 being gained for the pinto 1
bean Industry In Colorado from this !
one order.
To clear up misunderstanding os to
why pinto beans bring 7 Instead of 10
cents this year, tbe United States
Food Administration for Colorado
states that last year tbs government
bought tbe crop outright at s forced
pries to encourage tbe young Indus
-1 try—an emergency measure only.
This year, plntos must compete In
price with Japanese grown beans. o$
fared handpicked and In perfect con
dition at $$ par hundred, delivered at
Coast
California pinks bring only 5% cents
> n pound. With the exception of Michi
gan navies, pinto beans lead the field

MEAT AND FAT FAMINE A
POSSIBILITY!
The meat situation threatens to b»
eon, serious, aocordlng to the Colo
rado Food Administration.
Ontslde of the military sons la
France there Is practically no meat
la that country; what there Is, Is ont
of the reach of the poor people In
prise.
In England, the British food con
troller hoe found It necessary to re
dues the meat ration from one pound
to three-quarters of a pound per capita
weakly. Thera has also been a gen
eral rise In price to the consumer of
4 cents e pound In all moats.
In America Herbert Hoover ha*
promised that oat of the none too
plentiful meat supply of this country
1.000,000 tons of moot and fata will be
| shipped to Europe daring this current
year to rail are the situation over
I thtn.
The Food Administration therefore
urges the most Intense and concen
trated saving of moat and of fats.
Coming high prices on these com
moditise will enforce some saving In
them, but for the moet port the
patriotism ot tbe American people will
again be depended upon to fill this
1,500,000-too meat end fat order.
