MUST HAVE UNITED ACTIVITY
Elimination of Kaiser and Hohenzol
lernism Is Sole Object of Amer
ica In War—American Mis
sion Takes Part in Council.
' Washington—Military unity, unity
of purpose during the war and unity
of aims and conditions is what Amer
ica expects to see out of the allied war
council soon to convene in Paris. All
allied powers, it is expected, will lay
all of their cards on the table.
The United States has but one aim
hi the war—the crushing of Hohenzol
lernism. If any other nation has any
secret treaties or agreements, the
United States will expect that they
be made known.
Col. House Heads Mission.
That the American mission, headed
by Col. E. M. House and now in Eng
land, will enter the council with this
view, is announced on high authority.
It is hoped that the allied atmosphere
which has been clouded from time to
time, will be entirely cleared by the
council. The pulling and hauling that
has marked the conduct of the war to
date will disappear, it is believed.
It is therefore a military mission

The United States is interested in
just one thing now—winning the war.
The members of the American mission
have held long conferences with Brit

upon the work ahead of them gives
promise of the Paris council being one
of the most important conferences
since the beginning of the war.
STOPS COMBINATION SALES
Food Administrator Puts "Kibosh" on
Activities of Many Local Gro
cery Houses.
Washington.—Retail dealers were
ordered by the food administration to
etop the widely prevalent practice of
making "combination sales," requiring
customers to make other purchases
in order to obtain a certain commod
ity. One exception is made—on all
Bales of sugar the dealer may require
to buy twice the weight of corn meal.
Reports have come from many cities
particularly
of "combination sales,'
since the shortage of sugar in the
east began. In order to get a couple
of pouds of sugar consumers have had
to spend a certain amount in other
goods.
This practice, the administration
holds, is likely to lead to wasteful
buying. The exception in regard to
corn meal is made as a wheat conser
vation measure, to encourage greater
use of corn products, but dealers are
not required to make the exception
unless they so desire.
Ample power to enforce its orders
to retailers is possessed by the food
administration througn its licensing
of wholesalers. Any dealer who fails
to heed an order will find his supply
from the wholesaler cut off if his of
fense is reported.
National Grange la Loyal.

Graves of Killed Soldiers.
With the American Army in France.
—General Pershing has returned to
his headquarters from a visit to his
troops in the first line trenches, and
the support in the rear. Artillery fir
ing on both sides was normal and no
shells fell near him.
Night patrolling continues active
and contact with the enemy's patrols
has been established several times,
shots being exchanged. The Ger
mans have sent over more gas shells,
but they caused no damage.
General Pershing expressed himself
as satisfied with his troops' efficiency,
discipline and adaptability to the new
conditions. During his trip the gen

who were killed in a trench raid re
cently.
The artillery fighting in the sector
held by the American troops has be
come even more lively and there have
been further casualties, shrapnel
wounding some men in the trenches.
The American batteries have been
firing rapidly in return, and it is con
sidered certain that more damage and
casualties have been caused in the
German lines than the Germans have
inflicted on the Americans.
The French general commanding
the sector >»» mentioned in the dis
patches 16 American officers and sol
diers, including three who were killed,
for excellent military qualities and
for bravery displayed in the recent
trench raid. A note accompanying

for three months down to the finest

PROCLAMATION BY PRESIDENT
WILL STANDARDIZE AND
LOWER BREAD PRICES.
LOAVES WILL BE FOUR SIZES
Washington.—All bakeries in the
United States, including those of ho
-tels, restaurants and clubs, excepting
only the small neighborhood maker of
bread who uses less than 10 barrels
of flour a month, are required to come
under federal licenses after Dec. .10, by
a proclamation issued by President
Wilson.
All "persons, firm», corporations and
associations who manufacture for sale
bread in any form, cake, crackers,
biscuits, pastry and .other bakery
products," are directed to take out
licenses which will subject them to
rigid regulations now being drafted by
the food administration. Thus the
great manufacturers of cakes and
crackers sold throughout the world
will be affected in company with the
bakeries which sell their products in
the city of their location.
Under its regulations the food ad
ministration will standardize bread
making and Administrator Hoover ex
pects to force prices for pound loaves
downward, probably to seven or eight
cents. Fancy breads are to be elim
inated, loaves are to be in one, one
and a half, two and four-pound sizes,
and the sugar content is to be cut
down from six to three pounds per
barrel of flour.
The president's proclamation recites
the provisions of the food law, and
says:
"All persons, firms, corporations
and associations who manufacture for
sale bread in any form, cake, crack
ers, biscuits, pastry or other baking
products (excepting, however, those
whose consumption of any flour and
meal in the manufacture of such prod
ucts is, in the aggregate, less than 10
barrels a month) are hereby required
to procure a license on or before Dfec.
10, 1917. This includes hotels, res
taurants, other public eating places
and clubs who serve bread or other
bakery products of their own baking.
Application for license must be
made to the United States Food Ad
ministration, Washington, D. C., law
department, license division, on forms
prepared by it for that purpose, which
may be obtained on request.
Any person, firm, corporation or as
sociation other than those hereinbe
fore excepted who shall engage in or
carry on any business hereinbefore
specified after Dec. 10, 1917, without
first procuring such license, will be
liable to the penalty prescribed by said
act of Congress.
The penalty is $5,000 fine or two
years' imprisonment, or both.

GERMAN PATROL.
ATTACK NEAR GERMAN LINES
French Aided U. 8. Troop» In Arrang
ing Ambuscade on Shell-Ruined
Farm—No Mention Made of
American Casualties.
With the American Army in France.
—American infantrymen exacted a
part revenge for a trench raid during
a recent night by ambushing a large
German patrol in No Man's Land, and
killing and wounding a number of the
enemy.
The American patrol, in which there
were some Frfcnchmen, arranged the
ambusicade near the German lines on
a shell-ruined farm.
After lying in the mud nearly all
night the patience of the watchers
was rewarded by the sight of a large
German patrol, its number more than
double that of the French-Americans.
The Germans were permitted to
pass, when the Americans and Frepch
on their flanks opened a hot fire from
shell craters, and other shelters where
they were secreted.
The Germans were taken completely
by surprise, and bolted, carrying with
them their men who had been hit.
The number of dead and wounded
Germans is uncertain, but none of the
in ambush were hit by the bul
men
lets the Germans later sent in from a
distance. There were congratulations
all round when the Americans and
French re-entered their trenches.
Patrol work on beth sides is becom
ing more active, as is also the artil
lery fire. The Germans during one 24
hour period of a recent Bay sent over
at least three times as many shells as
on the first days during which the
Americans were entrenched. One night
the firing in the back areas against
the approaches of the communication
trenches reached the proportions of
drum fire. It was evident the Ger
mans thought an American trench re
lief was taking place. As a matter of
fact, no relief was in progress, and no
material damage was done.
During the last few nights the Ger
mans have continuously used machine
guns In the direction of the American
line. Sniping is becoming more active
both sides. American sharpshoot
ers are working close to the German
lines, especially when the nights are
clear.
The activity by enemy snipers thus
far has resulted in one American cas
ualty. A non-commissioned officer
was hit in the head and killed.

Here is a compact and comprehen

things needed by our boys in the navy,
to keep them and their belongings fit
and nifty. It is made of blue denim
and a little red cotton-flannel, stitched
with red thread and bound with a
strong braid. Short lengths of braid
sewed in it serve to hold comb,
brushes, pencils, etc.
This kit carries an unbelievable num
ber of things—among them these:
Soap in a soap box, talcum powder,
scrub brush, pencil with eraser, paper,
post cards, black and white thread,
needles, pins, safety pins, tooth brush,
tooth paste, bone buttons, bachelor but
tons, safety pins, corncob pipe, bag of
tobacco and has room to spare for
other things. It rolls up and is tied
with the strong braid or tape used for
binding it. One of these kits, fitted
out, is a fine gift along with a gay lit

salable finery is made up by buyers
for the big shops. This year they have
presented shoppers with many lovely
camisoles of ribbon, or net and ribbon
combined, or crepe georgette and rib
bon. Those shown in the picture are
in pale pink, which is the favored color
for fine underwear.
Very wide satin ribbon, decorated
with small tucks, lace insertions and
French knots in pink and blue silk,
serves to produce the camisole at the
top of the picture. It Is edged with a
frill of pink crepe and supported by
shoulder straps of satin ribbon.
The camisole below it is made of
fine, white net, banded with satin rib
bon. The same ribbon is used for
shoulder straps and for drawing up
the fullness over the bust It Is fin
ished with a small bow at the front. A
flat elastic run Jn a narrow hem in the
net adjusts the camisole to the waist
shabby with use.
No Grounds.

he had been damaged any."
