This area is a nest of Ger mans reserves and field artillery. Gousaneourt itself has been taken by the French, the advices add. The capture of the important ground on the heights to the westerly side of the line means that the Ger mans will not be able to retire in an ordinarily leisurely way and that they probably will have to go beyond the river Vesle in their retreat. The situation is considered as ex traordinarily good, being described in the advices as tho turning point of the summer campaign and possibly of the whole war.

In commenting on the order, Mr. Coonley made the following state ment: "The officers of the United States shipping board emergency fleet cor poration feel that they should ask for exemption for those individuals only who have special experience and ability which make them esesntial to the successful carrying out of the shipbuilding program. "In such cases the officials take the position that it is the duty of the In- . tV ' t,, . pnhnriMn ' r. ; rntiM':li i' 1 sire for active servh e at the front u greater service which he can render in the shipbuilding program.

To the housewife who has not had this t-xperiefice the Food Administration cives this advice: "Many put their butter and milk light next to the ice because they think ibis is the coldest place, but, as a matter of fact, the coldest place is at the bottom of the refrigerator. Hot air rises, and air that is not be ing constantly purified by circulation around the blocks of ice soon are un fit to come into contact with the food. When the warm ah- in the refriger ator rises it carries with it impurities and moisture which are absorbed from the surface of the food, and which if allowed to remain in the air spoil the food. The air which is warmed by passing over the food conies in contact with the ij:e where the moisture is condensed upon the surface and the impurities are carried off by the melt ing ice. The air is thus dried, cooled, and purified. The cooled air immed iately descends to gather up more moisture and impurities and thus the process is repeated continually. "It is advisable to allow heated food to cool off before placing it in the rehrigerator. If put in when warm it raises the temperature of the refirlger ator higher than it should go and melts ice unnecessarily. The trapdoor thorugh which the meltage passes out at the bottom of the refrigerator should be kept in place, because if it is broken or lost a constant stream of warm air is allowed to flow into the refirigerator." W.S.S. Mr. Chas. W. Keown, formerly of the Chattanooga Light & Railway Co.. has accepted the position of superintendent of transportation of the Pascagoula St. Ry. & Power Co. and entered upon the discharge of his new duties this week. The street railway has already inaug urated a fifteen minute car service on the Pascagoula-Beach run.
