MAY DECIDE THE ISSUE Oversubscription of the Lib erty Loan VAll Prove Hard Blow to the Germans at This Time. Enemy Must Know That All the Wealth of the Nation Stands Behind the Gov ernment and That Re sources Are Unlimited. By J. W. T. MASON. (Written for the United Press.) New York, Oct. 16.— Finançai strat egy 1» beginning to play a part In the final campaigns of the war hardly sec ond to military strategy. Both the British and German governments are now planning to make further mone tary calls upon their people and the moral effect of America's new liberty loan on the belligerent nations cannot be over-estimated. The liberty loan will pay for Amer ica a part in the w ir, as its primary purpose; but the length of the conflict will be measured by the amount by which the loan is oversubscribed. Every heavy subscription above nor mal to the loan will work for a quicker repeal of the war taxes by bringing the end of the conflict apreciably nearer. WEALTH AT NATION'S CALL.

Washington. Oct. 16.—War labor problems, constantly Increasing, are crystallizing sentiment among high government officials for a war service labor board today.

Advocates of the plan declare labor shortage in some munitions plants has already reached the stage where war department officials are considering taking battalions from the canton ments to factories. The card index now being made of every drafted man's industrial ability is a prelimin ary. Army engineers need a battalion immediately for a certain task. In the second draft It Is likely the Industrial census will be taken at ex amination time and that industrial ex emptions will be more liberally made. Already soldiers are being returned from cantonments to their trades be cause they are essential to war work. This has occurred In aviation plants. The men remain in the army, however.

As a matter of fact, you would probably not be using butter for cooking nowadays, if you could get the same delicious results without it. You can. Yes—without a particle of butter! Here is the way: Use wholesome, economical Cottolene for your fine cooking, in place of ex pensive butter. In purity Cottolene has set the highest possible standard for shortenings. * Try Cottolene in any familiar recipe. Use one-third less than you would use of butter. You will find that shortenings which seem cheap, when scooped out by the pound, are often more expensive than Cottolene in actual use. Why? Because many careful housewives have found that Cottolene—owing to its superior richness— goes much farther than other shortenings which they had been using. Try Cottolene next time. It is sold by grocers in tins of convenient sizes. Recipe for MOLASSES COOKIES 1 cup molasses cup Cottolene yi cup sugar yi level teaspoon salt 1 l*wel tablespoon ginger level teaspoon soda yi cup cold water 3 to 4 cups flour Heat molasses, pour over Cottolene.
