'/ j 0S9 J Hi .5" V r M J LE See how ^ess-work is isk en oui ofm isiing! When you visit the Sperry Master Mill at Spo kane you will sec how guess-work is taken out of Hour milling; how truly scientific modern-day milling is ; how flour is always kept uniform with just the exact amount of starch, glutcnm and ghadm. You will learn, among other things, that flour is never made from one lot of wheat-that many lots blended together so the flour will not run in "batches." And you will see the Mill laboratory where each day's milling is tested and where loaves of bread are baked as the final test of the flour. Here, too, demonstrations are held for the benefit of housewives; and domestic science classes are instructed in the processes of milling and baking. So—you see the Master Mill is really important in community service !

Major Scott decided Sunday while over the Bay of Fundy to send a wireless call to the American navy department to prepare to give assistance if it were needed.

While destroyers and submarine chasers were racing to her assistance the H-34 was plugging on lier way steadily to Mineola. Once clear.of the Bay of Fundy the atmos pheric hoodoo which had beset the craft from the time it took the air was gradually left in its wake. Destroyer Trails Dirigible.
