■A--—~7*V » i.r "ST iH •M# "Gee! but it's nice to see a girl like you!" I T was in a hut at one of the training schools in France. He was a non-commissioned officer. He had been in France for eight months, and now was back from the front as an instructor. He hadn't seen a girl of his own kind, a girl like his sisters, for weeks. And there she stood behind the canteen counter in this big, roomy, comfortable hut. He bought a bar of chocolate. Then he drifted over to the group around the piano. Presently he went back to the canteen for a package of cigarettes. He strolled to the reading table and leafed over a magazine. Again he returned—this time for a cake of soap and some tooth-paste. For a moment the rush at the .canteen was over. He loitered at the counter and looked at the girl. She smiled. So did he. Then he blurted out what he had been trying to say for 20 minutes: "Gee! but it's nice to see à girl like you!" There are girls like that all over France— in camps, in towns, in the big cities—even at the front itseli They are serving the canteens, Why you should give twice as much as you ever gave before! The need is for a sum 70% greater than any gift ever asked for since the world began. The Government has fixed this sum at $170,500,000. By giving to these seven organizations all at once, the cost and effort of six additional campaigns is saved. Unless Americans do give twice as much as ever before, our soldiers and sailors may not enjoy during 1919 their 3600 Recreation Buildings 2500 Libraries supplying 5,000,000 books 1000 Miles of Movie Film 85 Hostess'Houses 100 Leading Stage Stars 15,000 Big-brother "secretaries" 2000 Athletic Directors Millions of dollars of home comforts When you give double, you make sure that every fighter has the cheer and comforts of these seven organizations every step of the way from home to the front and back again. You provide him with a church, a theatre, a cheerful home, a store, a school, a club and an athletic field— and a knowledge that the folks back home are with him, heart and soul I You have loaned your money to supply their physical needs. Now give to maintain the Morale that is winning the war I UNITED WAR WORK CAMPAIGN SALVATION ARMY This Space Contributed by The Carlson Hardware Company running restaurants, handing out hot chocolate or coffee, pies and doughnuts* They are giving the huts a look of home— putting bright curtains at the windows, posters on the walls, making flower-gardens at the doors. They are mending for the soldiers. But, -most of all, they are just being therel They talk about the things that sound like home. Perhaps they know the very towns and streets and girls that these boys know. They bind together home and France! They are the girls beside the men behind the guns! Without the organizations whose uniforms they Wear, these girls could accomplish nothing. However eager to help, they could not even travel as individuals. But with the backing of these established, rec ognized and regulated bodies, they can work wonders. When you think of war as a brutalizing force, think of Ameri can womanhood work ing with the soldiers in this war—then give, to support the organiza tions which* make this possible.

Payable In Advance Entered at Kendrick, Idaho, 1892, as 2nd Class Matter, under Act of Congress of March 3, 1879. Advertising Rates furnished upon request. There is a noticeable disposition among the people here to comply with any demands which are made to advance the interests of the pub lic in general. Before the war there was a tendency to argue any piece of legislation that took away privileges which had become cus tomary. Today the people simply fall in line as a matter of course and carry out the wishes of the Government without complaint. This was particularly noticeable when the health department asked that all stores be closed at six o'clock in the evening. The order was carried out to the letter and no complaints were heard. Germany is suing for mercy from the American and allied air forces, according to a note delivered to Washington officials through the Swiss legation. When the allied forces were so far from German territory that the Germans believed themselves safe from allied bomb ing raids, they carried on this bar barous method of warfare whenever an opportunity presented. Now that the allies have successfully re taliated by causing considerable destruction in a number of German towns, the Huns howl for mercy. They will probably issue a protest against airraids upon civilians be cause such raids are not according to international law. Now that they are getting pretty badly beat en they would no doubt like very much to reconstruct a number of international laws which they have so ruthlessly disregarded during the past years of war. Colonel Theodore Roosevelt made the following statement at Oyster Bay, Nov. 6 : "The republicans will heartily support President Wilson in efforts to put forth all our whole strength and efficiency in the war and to secure a peace that will guarantee the result of the war." His next paragraph starts in as follows: "The result of the election is really extraordinary, inasmuch as the entire pro-German and pacifist vote was behind the Wilson democratic ticket." Evid ently the Colonel even yet does not consider himself a republican. Idaho asserted her patriotism last Tuesday at the polls when politics were forgotten by the two old par ties in an endeavor to convince the non-partisan league that this partic ular tihne was a very poor time for them to get into power and inaug urate such radical changes as their platform dictates and that Townley might see fit to establish. The bal lot was decisive enough to indicate that the league will hereafter have hard sledding in this state. Idaho has no inclination to get into a muddle like that being experienced by unfortuna+e North Dakota. •Owing to the influenza epidemic the creamery directors did not hold their _ meeting Tuesday evening. However, in discussing the matters informally, they decided to con tinue the creamery in operation as long as they could secure patronage. They will not close down on Nov ember 1 , and urged that the farmers bring in cream as usual, furnishing all that they can produce. There is an increase in cream receipts over that of a month ago, owing to good late pasture, and it is possible that the plant will operate all winter.— Latah Connty Press. Kendrik Precinct Vote U.
