It Is certain now that 1. H. Nash will be the commissioner at the head of this department. He Is present.state sena tor from Franklin county, for years was state land appraiser, serving un der former Republican administrations and was Wednesday named state land commissioner. C. A. Elmer, present register, will be chief clerk of the de partment, the positions of register and chief clerk being combined. The state land board is a constitu tional body and cannot be abolished until the constitution is amended so providing, which Is not likely. It is composed of the elective state officials with the exception of the state treas urer and stnto mine inspector, the gov ernor being chairriian. When the land department Is created It will in reality bo a subsidiary organization of the land board, taking from the shoulders of the elective state officials who form that body the detailed work which now occupies so much of its time. This change becomes effective March SX. The board therefore becomes an appeal body. ■ # POWERS OF COMMISSIONER.

Clothing ' Collection Committee of Red Cross Asks People to Be Generous in Their Gifts. "Give your old clothing to the Red Cross and buy neV." The above is the slogan of the com mittee in charge of the refugee cloth ing drive which opens Warch 24 and continues until March 29. Ton tons of clothing for refugees in war stricken Europe are needed. Realizing that most-of the old cloth ing was gathered up in the previous campaigns, that business is good, money plentiful and people generous, the committee urgfes that citizens give freely of their clothing and replenish their stock with 1919 suits and gar ments. "The need is great to a degree that fow at home can possibly realize," cabled Colonel Harvey D. Gibson, American Red Cross representative in Europe. "Every garment furnished will cover a body which otherwise would lack proper clothing and each garment furnished will actually pre vent suffering." Tlie problem of clothing the almost naked refugees that are pouring back to devastated homes in the allied coun tries is of such magnitude that only the United. States can solve it. Ac cordingly the American Red Cross will undertake the task of collecting 10,000 tons of used clothing, shoes and blan kets for these unfortunate peoples. What is needed, and needed with an urgency that can hardly be exagger ated, is strongly mads, every-day clothing for men, women, children, the plainer 'and more durable the better. Inner and outer clothing for all sizes and ages, and both sexes, is most ac ceptable and if capable of being re paired need not to be in perfect condi tion, for there are thousands of pen niless women abroad eager to do the necessary sewing.

Fbr the great engine in this remarkable car wrings every last bit of power out of gas. As soon as it leaves the carburetor the gas hits the Hot Spot one of two magnificent devices common only to a Chal mers and there it is "cracked up" into "dust." f So "dry" does this gas become that once it reaches the cyl inders and the spark plugs touch it off there is translated im mediately almost every single bit of power that nature put into gas. But to get the "dry" gas to the cylinders from the Hot Spot is no easy matter. The great Ram's-hom was designed to do this work and it does the task well. See this device and you'll neVer forget it. You'll wonder why it wasn't done years ago. But the common eyery day thing known as a pin, remember, was one of the last things. the human mind devised. * * One look at this Chalmers car of today and you'll want to sit behind the wheel. One ride there-arid you'll want, one. Six months later, you, too, will say that the Chalmers is really one of the few great cars of the world.
