Even under this international food program, which means further self denial by the Allies, the Allied table at best, Mr. Hoover said, will be less than ours, for their people are de nying themeselves more in order to transport our soldiers.

PITS AND SHELLS FOR OAS MASKS The War Department has requested the boys' and girls clubs of the country to help collect fruit pits and nutshells, the carbon in which is used in making gas masks. Contests have been sug gested among the million club memb ers by the United States Department of Agriculture and the State agricul tural colleges, which conduct the club work, to see which member, which club, which district, and which Stale can deliver the largest amount of ma terial in the shortest time. Each member should try to furnish at leas', 200 peach pits, or pounds of shells- enough material for one mask. Since more and better carbon is secured torn the pits of peaches, prunes, and plums than from other sources, boys mil girls should make it their special business to see that every home In heir communities save the pits of these fruits. They should also visit (immunity and commercial canneries. hotels, restaurants, and bakeries. In addition, seeds should be collected rom dates and olives, and shells and' '.hole nuts be saved from hickory; nuts, butter nuts, English and native walnuts, and hazelnuts. The material 1 may be delivered to the local Red Cross headquarters, which are acting a central stations for collecting and! hipping. W.S.S.- PROMISCUOUS CORRE SPONDENCE PROHIBITED. problem, the food administrator d ciareu, is no small part ot the issue. The Allied civilians and armies, the American armies, the Belgian relief and certain neutrals who are depend ent upon the United States, will re quire 17,550,000 tons of foodstuffs for the year beginning duly 1. This, In round numbers, will include meats and fats, 2.000,000 tons; breads: off s; 10, '100,000; sugar, l,3f0,000, and feed grains, mostly army oats, 2,700,000. There will be no food rationing In 'his country so long as the people con tinue to conserve as in the past, Mr. Hoover said, nor will it be necessary, he hopes, to resort to whcatless and meatless days. "Of our imports," Mr. Hoover said, "we shall apparently have suflcient sugar to maintain the present con sumption and take care of the extra drain of the Allies from cur markets, instead of compelling them !o send their ships to the Ear East. We can secure in sailing vessels the coffee we need, If no one makes an overhrew. Of our own products we must secure a reduction in consumption and waste In the two great groups of, first, bread- stuffs, and second, meat3 and fats that is. in all bread and cereal, beef, pork, poultry, dairy and vegetable oil products. The average consumption of our people of breadstuff's amount to six pounds per week and of meats and iats to lour pounds a week for cue i person, a reduction In consumption of less than one-half pound per week per person in each of these two great groups of foods would accomplish our purpose. We wish to emphasize, how ever, that we do not want curtailment in the use of milk for children. "We estimate that nearly 9.OC0.0OO people eat at our public eating places hotels, restaurants, boarding houses, clubs, dining car3 and so forth. The food consumption in -.lies,, idaces is larger than la the average home. We are asking the proprietors and employes of these institutions to uuuoiiukc in many particular Mays more strict programs than la t year and we are confident that thev v. ill Willingly do this, j "This year, as last, I believe, we lean accomplish the necessary ends by voluntary action of our ow n people, jThe willingness to assume individual j responsibility in this matter by the (vast majority is one of the groatoal proofs of the character ami idealism of our people, and I feci it can be relied upon. Our simple Jackson, Miss., Sept. 25. According to Dr. W. S. Leal hers, executive officer of the State Hoard of Health, "a num ber of cases of inlluonza have been re ported in Mississippi and precautions taken to prevent the spread of these cases." Dr. Leathers has issued a bulletin on the subject in which ho says (here is strong probability the disease will cause an immense amount of sickness liuring the aproaehing winter, unless precautions are taken',' and that many cases may result fatally in the event such complications as pneumonia and meningitis arise. The first manifestion of the disease is a i hill or chilly sensation, follow ed by fever with temperature of from 100 to 104, with headache and hack ache, redness and running of the eyes and pains all over the body. The throat feels sore, therp is congestion of the larynx, and in some instances laryngitis and bronchitis.' The most serious thing in connection with the disease, says !)r. Leather), is the tendency towards pneumonia and meningitis. It ;s important that the patient rest in bed, The sources of infecion are secre tions from the nose, throat and lungs. The disease undoubtedly can be con trolled by strict isolatioiu" but quarantine is not practicable. School teachers everywhere are urged to see .hat children do not sneeze, spit or cough promiscuously while at school. W.S.S.

BUSH DAVIS W.S.S. New York, Sept. 24. Six billion dollars Is the minimum amount which the people of the United States are asked to subscribe for the fourth Liberty Loan, acording to an an nouneement by Secretary of tin Treasury McAdoo, in a stinging ad dress here tonight, outlining the gov ernment's plan for the campaign which starts Saturday. The loan, which will bear 4 1-4 per cent, interest will run for twenty years, maturing October 15, 1938, un less the government should exercise its reserved, right to redeem the bonds on or after October 15 1933. Asserting that without this vast sum. "we cannot lick he kaiser," Secretary McAdoo made a special appeal for the subscriptions of corporations and wealthy individuals, as returns from the third Liberty Loan indicated that wealthy corporations of large means had not. responded "commensuratelv wit'i their abilities to help." He point ed out that of the 18,000,000 Amer leans who subscribed in the last loan only 22,500, including corporations bought bonds in excess of $10,000. "It would be preposterous," he said "to say that there are only 2;. 500 men women and corporations In Amer ica able to lend more than $10,000 each to their government in Liberty bonds.' Mr. McAdoo also condemned the practice of "swindlers and unscrup lous and unpatriotic people who bad induced holders of Liberty bond3 to exchange them for stocks or invest ments of doubtful value." He point ed out that thece operations forced the treasury to buy the bonds thus thrown upon the market in order to protect the market and the credit of the government. I "Thus the treasury's available re sources from the loan." he declared, "are depleted and forced in unworthy channels, often times in wildcat enter prises, to the injurv of the American I'.eople and to the detriment of the war. W'o must create a healthy pub lic opinion which will recrehend such practices, We must provide the ma chinery and the mca:i3 through which those who have to sell their bonds may do so and get the highest pos sible price for them, while at the same time protecting the innocent invest ors." W.S.S. AMERICANS TAKE 12 FRENCH VILLAGES AND 5,000 PRISONERS. The mayor and board of aldermen met in adjourned session on Tuesday night of this week, with all members present. Bond of Marshal Brunson for $2, 000 was approved. Thomas McMillian was elected policeman at salary of $75 per month. Mr. C. S. Merriweather was elected police Justice at a salary of $75 per month.

Jane's residence At the moment of the attack the cor poral's attention had been attarcted Dy a noise across the street. Two of the men grabbed him about the body and arms, while the third slashed at him- with a razor. The soldier put up a terrific fight and beat off his as sailants, not, however, until he had his uniform cut in several places and a slight cut on the neck. He fired his pistol at one of them as they made off. hut had been so badly daied by a parting blow on the head that he was unable to take careful aim and his assailants escaped. The night was too dark lor him to identify any of the men, beyond the fact that they were white. Corporal Dempsy is without, pe-- Bonal enemies so far as he knows and is unable to account for the attack except on the theory that he was mis taken for some one else.
