Before the war has reached an
eod Americans will fully appre
ciate how terrible it is. But we
must lose many men before its
horrors are realized. At present,
the average person seems totally
unable to grap (the enormity of
the destruction of life aad proper
ty, or the possible results. The
United States, with all of its men
aod wealth, must suffer intensely
before the euemy is cooquored;
aod tbeu new enemies may spring
up over the adjustments, which
will be almost as difficult as the
problems of actual war. It will
be uo easy task to have a redivis
ion of the world among the many
nations involved. There are al
ready twenty-one nations at war,
and before its eod the tew remain
ing neutrals may be engaged.
But what most coucerus us now
is the lack of appreciation, on the
part of our own people, of the
gravity of the preseat situation.
Men who bdld positions of im
portance are among the country's
most dangefous enemies, and or
ganizations are endeavoring to
thwart the plans of the govern
ment, and dostroy its power. At
the same time, in maay cases greed
bas crowded out patriotism, while
love of pleasure has cast aside all
responsibility. America needed
the war, aod it needs the terrible
sacrifices which will come as a
result. It has not come too soon
to prevent the people of this great
nation from becoming utterly void
ot patriotism.
Tbe Reveille misjudged Gov.
Bilbo last week, aod we regret
tbe prophecy made then, that
be would commute tbe senteoce of
Dorowitz, tbe Warreo county
murderer, sentenced to bang. Tbe
governor refused to iaterfere, aod
tbe baogiog took place Monday.
This was no doubt a trying expe
rience for tbe governor, as great
pressure was brought to bear upon
him by misguided sentimentatists
to have the seotence commuted.
These people seem uoabte to com.
prebeod tbe law's purpose to pre
vent crime by punisbiog tbe
guilty. If all criminals could be
prevented from committing other
crimes and tbe criminally inclined
deterred from violatiog protective
laws by light punishment of tbe
guilty, there would be a unani
mous desire to bave tbe sentence
ot tbe court made as light as pos
sible. It is tudeed a cold heart
which is not touched by sorrow
when a fellow mao is condemned
Co die, but tbe death penalty is
necessary.
Costa Rica bas approached tbe
other Central Americao republics
with a view ot combioiog in ooe
Central Americao republic. Tbe
five republics iocluded are Costa
Rica, Guatemala, Salvador, Nica
ragua and Honduras. Panama,
oecause of its coonection with tbe
United States, is not mentioned in
tbe proposed coalitioo. Tbe plan
is a good ooe, and would be help
ful for each one of the pigmy
oations. It would give tone to
Ceotral America.

HOME ECONOMICS.
Plans for Taking Economics Into
Homes.
President Wilsoo asks tbe wom
en of tbe country to work individ
ually and through tbeir organiza
tions to carry out tbe food conser
vation program as outlined by
Herbert C. Hoover, tbe Natiooal
Food Administrator. Mr. Hoover
whose genius for organization and
direction have made him tbe "man
of tbe hour" on both continents,
has seot to tbe women of America
a "clarion çail to service," and
tbe women of America have an- ^ye
swered through (be presidents of
" v fapa
□ early two hundred national worn
en's organizations, representing 801,1
approximately 20,000,000 women.
Women everywhere must fully
comprehend this plan; they must

The
any
Although the plan involves an
enormous amount of work, radi
ating in every direction, it is a
simple one, and depends for its
success solely on the thoroughness
with which each woman does her
share.
"To save is to serve" is the
motto of men and women associ
ated as members of the food Ad
ministration. Their aim will be to
live wisely but not too well, to
eat freely but to avoid waste.
Mr. Hoover's appeal to the
women is as follows:
"As requested by toe President
we ask every woman in the United
States engaged in the personal
control of food, to register for ac
tual membership in the Food Ad
minstration, thus entering directly
into national service. We must
enter a period of self-sacrifice for
our country and her democracy.
The world's food supply is short
and many must suffer* Food must
be managed and transported in our
own country and to our allies in
such a way as to get the most out
of it. Those who remain at home
can also help; can fight by helping
a fighter fight, and can serve by
saving.

Since food will decide tbe war,
each American woman can do a
real national service uy protecting
tbe food supply. Ninety per cent
of tbe food consumption passes
through tbe bands of our women.
In no other field do small thiogs,
when multiplied by our hundred
million people, count for so much.
A single pound of bread saved
weekly tor each person lor a year
would iacrease our surplus ot
wheat 100,000,000 bushels. With
out a larger margio from our abun
dant loon supply, ooly to be se
cured by individual effort aod vol
unteer sacrifice, the war will be
prolonged and thousands of lives,
not ooly ot men but also of wom
en and children will be needlessly
lost."

Every woman is asked to sign
tbe pledge which appears below,

tor's office, Washington, D. C.

Don't neglect a lame or aching

Telephone Troubles
BELL Telephone employees are con
stantly trying to prevent trouble of any
kind in the workings of the equip
ment, and to repair such troubles as soon
as possible after they occur.
Subscribers are asked to report trouble
immediately, and to exercise a reasonable
patience while it is being cleared.
If you do not see a man actually
working on your telephone, it does not
mean that you are not receiving proper
attention.
The difficulty may be at the switch
board, in the cable or at any one of sev
eral other places. Two or three men may
be at work hunting it down.
It is always our first consideration to
clear troubles promptly.
