AN OUTLINE FOR FOOD CONTROL Editor The Star: The present times demand some solution of the Utah Cost of l.lving. .1 believe these propositions can l>e taken frtr granted without detail expiana Hon: No 1 No action can be taken which would reduce prices to the producer. No 2. The high prices of some of our staple products are not th> result of scarcity, hut rather the result of speculation 111 food < prices. To illustrate: The bulk of Wash melon |»<tato crop was sold last fall at prices so low that the pres ent price Is not justified Only those producers, a very small per • ent, who held their crops until thla spring are securing the benefit of present prices Continuation of these conditions for one or more »ears will cause great suffering to our people Mv plan for * partial solution I* this: I would have the newspapers Inaugurate a cam pa tun ami create a puhlic sentiment for the cities of tli* state to btiv ami store at prop er times. staple food products, ihru a commission appointed for the purpose These staples could • otild >>e bought and stored in stif flcient quantities to prevent a cor per of the market Thev could then he sold at cost plus the cost < f the storage mul operation of tlie department. If this were done hy six or eight of the leading cities of the state, I believe it would hold the market within the bounds of supplv and demand The cities of the first and sec ind class are now authorized s y law "to establish and regulate markets." I would have a special session of the legislature called for th» purpose of amplifying t!i » I lowers of municipalities In this lespect That is. let the law be amended so as to give to the mu nicipal government authority to ai>- money and appoint a commission for this purpose. At the same time, the present law should be amended so ss to render Invalid a contract between a Jobber and a retail merchant which prev«nts the retail merchant from dealing directly with the pro du<-er. I believe this program would be of wonderful benefit to the people of the state, not only now but in teace times a* well. NOW Is the time to carry It out The need Is r.reat for some relief, and the iwmv Ile would back any reasonable plan so that the objections of the jobber may b#> overcome rtOYD HATFIELD. IjinKley.

PAGIi 5 ORDER DRESSES FOR TATTOOED LADIES United States Government Won't Let Sailors or Soldiers Wear Art Figures Any More Uncle Sam hat suddenly be come prudleh. Orders have been Issued pro hibiting soldiers and sailors from wearing tattooed figures of women on their epidermis— when the women wear no clothe*. The result is that "Tattoo" Jack, who has a studio at 624 Washington st., is earning 15 cents a square Inch for putting colorful tattooed skirts on nude figures. War has affected dramatic art in other ways, too. Like the price of wall paper, the prio of tattooing has gone up, "on account of the war." nnd for the same reason there la a greater demand for It A "piece" thHt used to cost now costs 13.50, becaue the high grade of black coloring matter used comes from China, and is harder to obtain now. Bu»lne»» Better ' But business Is good and It's going to be better," says .lack 'Just now thc'recruits for the navy are coming In In bunches Kvcry recruit wants to be a full fledged sailor as quickly as possible, so I have been tattooing pieces with dates a few years buck underneath them for some time. "Just as soon as the men are chosen under select service, busi ness will be rushing. You can Ion" a brass identification lag In the trenches, but when a man has his name and home address tattooed on the small of his back, no matter If lie Is 'somewhere in France.' they know where he belongs." Tattooes College Boys Jack has been In the profession 2f> years and he says he used to keep track of Ills "cases," but when he got to 1,500. some years ago, he lost count. He thinks lie lias tat tooed enough human skin to pave a road from Seattle to Tacoma "All kinds of people want It done." lie told a reporter yesterday. "I have tattooed the symbols of (iref>k letter fraternities on college hovs' arms and the Insignia of a millionaires' swimming club on the legs of a half a dozen women. The Insignia was a butterfly. ARE PROPRIETARY MEDICINES FRAUDULENT? Undoubtedly, there mm be some that are, but on the other hand, there are many proprietary reme dies dipt are as standard as any prescription that any present day physician can write, and in thou sands of homes you will find these old, reliable remedies In every diay use Willi satisfactory results. Such a medicine is Lydla K. I'lnkham's Vegetable Compound, which, for tv nrlv 4" years, has been allevlnt ing the suffering of womankind, and overcoming some of tln> most serious ailments of her sex. If you are suffering from any of (lie. all tnents of women, Just give thl» nedlcine a trial and prove Its worth for yourself. At the St. I<oui* fair, I did a thriving business tattooing beauty spots on ladloH' cheeks, a' I I have had a couple of rase*' like that in Seattle. I saw a fellow tattoo a permanent blush on a woman's face, onee, but that's a thing I don't want to monkey with. I'd hate to spoil It. The funniest effect I ever pro duced was when I put a box car with a hobo sitting in it on a man's forehead, but I have put some funny designs on foreigners. I think maybe there, in something to this secret society stuff, like you see in the movies, because every now and tlnn 1 get a call to put some weird piece of work on a man and then. In a few days, there'll be several calls for the same piece." Process Painful The process is simple hut pain-1 ful. lie who would have his skin J "engraved" allows Jack to transfer| the design to it with a stencil and lampblack. Then, with a needle, the point of which Is kept Jabbing up and down by an electric mech anism, the pigment Is forced under the skin. The work Is done rapidly but In the case of a "back piece" several trips to the tattooer may be necessary. Oh. once in a while they faint and sometimes a fellow gives up, but after the needle has been go ing tip and down a few minutes the arm Rets numb and you don't notice tt much," Jack says. "It's a permanent and beautiful form of art," says Tattoo" Jack. TOURIST CROP FAILS TOKIO.

HOW TO JUDGE A WOMAN BT HER HAD There is real common miN la just noticing whether the hair ii well kept to judge of a woman'* neatness, or gofwi taste. If you are one of the few who try to make the most of your hair, remember jat it is not advisable to wash the hair with any cleanser made for ail pur iwscs. but always use some good preparation made expressly for shampooing. You can enjoy the very best by getting some cantbrox fr«Mn your druggist, dissolve a teec spoonful in a cup of hot water. This makes a full cup of shampoo liquid, enough so It is easy to ap l ly it to all the hair instead of just the top of the head. Dandruff, ex cess oil. and dirt are dissolved and entirely disappear. Your hair will be so fluffy that it will look much heavier than it is. Its lustre and softness will also delight you, while the stimulated scalp gains the health which insures hair growth.
