Don't call It "war bread," call It "Liberty bread." It's just as expen sive by any other name. Pershing wants football training for the army. But he is willing to omit kicking from the program. It is all very well to display the flag. But this game is not to be won by bunting. but by hard hitting. As a rule the more a man drinks at night the greater his determination to fire the boss in the morning. The average small boy is the orig Inal "conscientious objector"-to soup and water, as applied to the neck and ears. Perhaps some of the men asking ex emption from military service w ould be willing to do some knitting for the Red Cross. However, as everything else is high er, probably the tax rate would feel lonesome if it were not higher, too, next year. By turning his cow loose in a hop field a westiern farmer hopes to devel op a periputetic brewery and dairy combined. Don't clear your war garden entire ly of stones. You may need a few for the neighbor who leans over the fence to give advice. Liver and tripe are now aristocratic foods. Verily, we believe that out rageous prices would make even car rots respectable. About 100 vegetarians have asked for exemption from the war, possibly being under the impression that we are to eat our enemies. With women fighting against each other in both the Russian and German armies, it can readily be seen that the war will go to a finish. The price of elephants is said to be advancing. Possibly somebody has suggested that elephant steak be add ed to the American menu. Quite a number of the new soldiers claim the exemption boards have for gotten the biblical adage, "Many are called but few are chosen." Simpler living will result in better cooking, and that in turn will reduce drunkenness by reducing the craving that liquor too easily satisfies. It Is said that the demand for Bibles is the greatest ever known in history. That of itself is evidence that the peo ple are becoming less bibulous. Among the tragedies of life is the good wife who has just observed her twenty-fifth wedding anniversary but is still hoping for a set of silver spoons. The government will exempt a man where his wife is entirely dependent upon him, but what can it do with a man who is entirely dependent upon his wifet Advocates of sheep raising point ouat that the sheep can be worn as well as eaten, whereas the pig can only be eaten. It seems to be up to the pig to grow wool War has become a mighty big propo sition. We will now fight in the air over the earth, in the water under the surface of the sea, and on the land In the face of the enemy. Despite all anxiety on the part of nervous people who are confident of the government's lcapatity to handle the fuel situation it is a safe wager that none will freese to death next winter. For the benefit of men who think their Insomnia is due to overwork, we offer the dreamstanace that very few farmers who sweat 12 hours a day in the field are ever bothered by In somanis. The ashortage of one and twodollar bills complained of by the banks seems inexplicable to the average dt msen, who finds very little occausion to use anything of so small a denomina tio in meetaing the high cost of lving. "Fashion has gone out of fashlon," remarked an Enatishwoman, speaking ef feminlne styles.
