Mr. Fotdick Denies Favoring Beer
and .Wine tor United States troops.
Raymond D. Fosdick, chairman of
the war department commission on
training camps makes vigorous de
nial of the statement charged to him
that he favors the use by the Unit
ed States soldiers of alcoholic bev
erages containing lesj than twenty
three per cent alcohol. In a letter to
the Board of Temperance, Prohibition
and Public Morals of the Methodist
Episcopal church, he says, in part:
"From the week that war was de
clared the comission on training camp
activities has been actively engag
ed in protecting the troops in the
training camps of this country from
lemoralizing influences of all sorts.
Since the passage of the selective
service act, we have had special su
pervision of the enforcement of sec
tion 12 andl3 relating to alcohol and
prostitution, and I am confident that
the campaign which we have conduct
ed against bootleggers and undesir
able characters has had a material
fleet upon th'e problem of main
taining the morula of the troops."

Winona, Miss., Feb. 18.
To The Commercial Appeal.
A few days ago an incident occur
red here which la only a simple illus
tration of the fact that beneath the
khaki uniform of the soldier lad
beats a tender and chivalrous heart.
An old lady who had been on a visit
to her daughter in Columbus, Miss.,
was on her way back to her home in
Texas but missed connection here
and was weeping because she had to
stay in the waiting room until 2
o'clock the next morning. A young
brown-eyed lieutenant who had been
traveling on the same train with her
saw her distress and stepping up to
some Winona ladies who happened
to be at the Btation, asked them to
please speak to the old lady and per
suade her to go over to the hotet
where she could be made comfort
able and that he would pay the bill.
The ladies did as lie requested but
would not allow him to pay the bill,
but said they would see that it was
puid. However, the lieutenant
would not leave until he saw the
old lady comfortably situated. He
told the ladies he would not forget
them when he got to Sunny France.
This gallant soldier is only one
out of thousands of our noble boys
who are sacrificing their lives for
home and native land. Let us do all
in our power to help them win the
ar and may God bless and bring
them back safe once more.

Warning Issued Against Scheme to
Swindle Farmers.
Another scheme for swindling the
farmers of the United States has
been discovered by the Federal Farm
Loan Board. A man advertising
imself as an authorized organizer
of national farm-loan associations
s sending out advertising matter em
blazoned with the national flag,
stating that he will organize such as
sociations at $500 each, and will
teach other the trick for a certain
sum of money. His advertisements
have reached farmers and business
men over a large part of the United
States. He claims to be so busy or
ganizing national farm-loan asso
ciations that he needs help, but will
take time to teach others for a mone
tary consideration.
All such representations are
fraudulent In order to borrow un-
er the farm-loan act, it is neces
sary for farmers to organize co-op
erative national farm-loan associa
tions in their local communities. It
is a violation of a ruling of the Fed
eral Farm Loan Board, published
more than a year ago, for a national
farm-loan association or a joint-
stock land bank to spend any money
for promotion purposes. Associations
thus organized will not be chartered
by the Federal Farm Loan Board.
Farmersare warned therefore against
anyone asking a fee for his prof
fered services in connection with ap
plying for a loan under the Federal
farm-loan act.
Women Engaged in Agriculture.
According to a late report, of the
,800,000 women engaged in agri
culture in the United States, 750,-
000 are under 20 years of age and
1,050,000 are negroes. A majority
of the women workers are found
the Southern states.
The lines of work in which women
will be likely to increase their farm
ing activities, according to the re
port, are vegetable gardening, poul
try raising, butter making, hog rais
ng, etc. It is suggested that women
who know how to operate motor cars
may with little additional training
operate tractors.

Housekeepers' Heeidwork

The housekeeper is facing many

There has never been a time when

Shippers of Food and Feeds Should
Apply for Cars Through Rail
road Agents.
Director General McAdoo and the
Food Administration have arranged
to co-operate in the distribution of
cars for the food and feed trades.
The grain and grain product and
eed shippers are to first apply for
cars in the usual way through rail
road agents; in case of not furnish
ed within a reasonable time' they may
then apply to the zone representa
tives of the Food Administration
grain division at the various termi
nals, stating the care required, point
at which it is desired cars should be
sent, character of the product to be
loaded, the destination of shipment,
and the consignee.
The shippers of sugar, beans, rice,
vegetables, live stock, meat and
perishables generally, should first
apply for cars in the usual way
through railroad agents; in case not
being furnished within reasonable
time they may apply directly to the
Food Administration in Washington,
stating the cars required, the point
to be sent, the chararter of the com
modity to be loaded, the consignee
and destination.
