Avoid Dandruff
You do not want a slow treatment
when hair is falling and the dandruff
germ is killing the hair roots. Delay
means—no hair.
Get, at any drug store, a bottle of
*emo for 25c or $1.00 for extra large
size. Use as directed, for it does the
work quickly. It kills the dandruff germ,
nourishes the hair roots and immediately
•tops itching scalp. It is sure and safe,
is not greasy, is easy to use and will not
•tain. Soaps and shampoos are harm
ful, as they contain alkali. The best
thing to use is zemo, for it is pure and
Also inexpensive.

Last Night for
Address of Evening Given, by Hon. J.
A. S. Pollard of Fort Madi
son—Those Who
The second annual meeting of the
High Tension club was held at Fort
Madison last night in the Masonic
hall. Ninety-seven members of the
club and guests were present at the
meeting, which was one of the best
that has been held In the history of
the organization.
The Keokuk members of the club
left here for Fort Madison on the
early evening train, arriving in that
city at 9:10 p. m. They first gathered
at the offices of the Fort Madison
Electric company and from there
went to the Masonic hall where the
banquet was served.
After the banquet A. S. Nichols,
who had charge of the arrangements
for the meeting, introduced Mayor
A. P. Brown of Fort Madison to the
members. Mayor Brown welcomed
the High Tensioners to Fort Madison
and introduced Geo. B. Stewart who,
after a few. remarks, presented the
Hon. J. A. S. Pollard as the speaker
of the evening.
Mr. Pollard then proceeded to
liven up the members by a "scien
tific" talk on the meter, followed by
a very interesting talk on "Prepared
Mr. Pollard's address was excep
tionally interesting and he was given
hearty applause. On behalf of the
club, A. S. Nichols thanked him for
the address and at the suggestion of
Mr. Kellogg, he was accorded a rising
vote of thanks.
The members then attended the
Grand theater where a special vaude
ville show starting at 10:30 p. m., was
put on. This show was over at 11:40,
after which the members caught the
11:53 for home. Street cars met the
train at Keokuk. This meeting was
conceded to be a great success and
chedit should be given Mr. Nichols
for the evening's entertainment of
the club members.

2,300 More Troops.
SAN ANTONIO, Texas, April 19.—
more troops Into Mexi­
co General Funston today faced the
problem of filling the gaps along the
border. From Brownsville, ESaglo
Pass, Fabens and Marfa, Texas and
from Fort Apache, Ariz., the addition
al troops are to concentrate at Colum
bus and swarm over the line to aid
General Pershing's men. With the
completion of this move, the depart
ment will be practically stripped of
available men. A comparative hand
ful of troops are available from other
departments, it is said, and whether
the war department will order them to
guard duty along the border at the!
expense of other sections, was a mat
ter of conjecture at headquarters. One
other solution lay in the state of
Texas Possibly anticipating a call
for troops to aid the regular army, the
adjutant general's office of the Texas
militia for weeks has been engaged in
preparations to furnish men. Equip
ment has been gone over at the vari
ous armories and Inquiries are said to
have been made regarding transporta
tion facilities. Should Funston require
their aid, it is understood the Texas
militia will be ready to jump into the
caps along the border, accustomed not
only to the pecularities of the climate,
but also in some degree to the duty

required of the border guard. No in
timation had been given out at head
quatrers today as to from what
source General Funston expects to
supply the new men.
The new men will take their sta
tions along the line of communica
tions, releasing an equal nunrber by
now accustomed to the climate and
country, for active service with Gen
eral Pershing's advance guard.
No word has been received at head
quarters since Pershing's long dis
patch, which resulted In the order for
troop movements, -was forwarded to
the war department. This message
was understood today to have made
clear the attitude of the Carranzista
troops so far encountered. Previous
reports indicated this attitude Is one
of almost open hostility.
Situation Appears Grave.
[By Carl D. Groat, United Press Staff
WASHINGTON, April 19—Seeming
lack of Carranzista co-operation in
the Villa hunt, hammered home in of
ficial reports to tne war department,
gave the Mexican situation today an
air of gravity that even the over
whelming German-American problem
did not entirely submerge.
Secretary of War Baker and Gen
eral Funston, however, intend to meet
all needs of General Pershing fully.
This was indicated by the dispatch
of 2,300 more troops into Mexico.
General Peshing has reported that
Mayor Herrera of Parral, warned
against the return of American troops
into that city. Further, the firing of
Carranzista soldiers at Parral upon
Americans has given the most strik
ing evidence that they are far from
whole heartedly in aid of the Amer
ican expedition.
Secretary Lansing is in a position
to negotiate with Mexcian Ambassa
dor Arendo over withdrawal, but
neither side apparently is in any
great hurry.
Possibly authorities said Carranza
as reported will renew his suggestion
for ending the hunt, but Consul Rodg
ers' messages have said no new de
mand will be made until America re
plied to the first note on the subject.

Iowa primaries for vice president and

He is One of 250 State Directors
Selected to Plan Mobilization
of Industries.
Norman T. Wilcox, sales manager
of the Mississippi River Power Co.,
has been selected as one of the 250
state directors named to mobilize the
nation's resources in time of war. He
will have charge of electric re

Times of April 16.
Commenting on this survey the
Times says:
Mobilizing the manufacturing and
producing resources of the entire
country for availability in time of
war is the stupendous task that has
been undertaken by the committee on
industrial preparedness of the naval
consulting board of the United States.
Howard E. Coffin, chairman of the
committee, made public yesterday the
names of 250 state directors, who,
under the direction of the committee,
were to make a complete survey of
American industries, the first that has
ever been made in this country. It is
planned to find out just how this
country will be able to meet the
strain upon her industries that is
bound to come with war. The com
mittee will place in the hands of the
government a detailed report showing
just what plants are available for the
making of war munitions and just
what part industry can play in back
ing up the armies that must be
raised for the prosecution of a war.
