The government has started an in
vestigation, it is announced, to dis
cover and weed out a large number of
alleged fraudulent dependency claims,
and intimates that trouble is likely to
ensue for many who have been draw
ing these allowances to which they
have not been entitled. The startling
claim is made that as a result of this
investigation at least one-third of the
400,000 now drawing dependency
money will not only have this fund
cut off but will be required to pay
back what they have received in this
way. The ruling, according to the de
partment 'Officials, is that no one is
entitled to such an allowance unless
she was an actual dependent of the
soldier at the time he enlisted or was
called. That would mean that many
women who have married soldiers
since they were called and have been
drawing the allowance money will
soon get a notice that they will be
asked to do a certain amount of ex
plaining to the government men. It
is charged that a large number of
these women are self supporting and
have been, many of them making $75
per month by their own efforts. A
great deal of criticism has resulted
from sending dependency money to
persons alleged not to be in anywise
dependent and the government evi
dently has decided to take a peep in
to the matter.

Feeling that some explanation is due to the
public concerning the unprecedented scarcity of
Victrolas and Victor Records, we desire to make
the following statement:
The above condition is due, as all such condi
tions must primarily be due, to the unquestioned
popularity of Victor products. It is also due to
the fact that so long as the United States was at
war we believed our paramount duty lay in assist
ing the Government in the prosecution of the war
to the fullest extent of our abilities; our facilities
had been freely offered and accepte^.
Immediately upon the signing of the armistice
and our release from the Government obligations,
we took all necessary steps to insure the earliest
possible return to an increased output of Victor
products, but in the interim we would bespeak for
Victor dealers and for ourselves some measure
of consideration which we believe will be accorded
by every American.

When our soldjer lads began to go
to France, the girls here figured that
half of them would stay. There
sprang up a nation-wide work of
changing the minds of the boys. Soon
it began to be evident that not more

remain forever in France. Later the
wise heads figured that not more than
ten per cent of them would marry the
pretty French girls and stay among
the vine clad hills and citron groves.

of the Winson six, and with a cherry
laugh and with eyes like the Idaho
sunrise and cheeks like the sunset.
