LETTERS FROM THE
'The Herald, Algiers:
During these strenuous times of
peril, war and strife, in which the
imperial German government is try
ing to gain the supremacy of the
earth and overcome democracy, there
is nothing more important to us for
our own welfare than econmy and
Much has been said by noted speak
ers, writers and the government it
self about thrift and economy in the
homes, and I believe the people are
responding to their plea.
A word about the financial side of
the situation. To wage war, money
in abundance is necessary, and where
can the United States government
get this money if not from the peo
ple? Therefore the Liberty Loans
and now the War Savings Movement.
Economize, be thrifty and place
every extra cent you can realize in
either Liberty Bonds or War Sav
Do not get the idea, "I am only
one in millions, and they will not
miss what I can give or do." If
everyone thought that way it would
be the downfall of nations.
In conclusion, I sincerely hope that
the people of the United States of
America will come up to all expec
tations in their many sacrifices
to save the great cause. democracy.

who attended that review heard
some of the best arguments and

would be a masquerade ball, but as
the Mayor has forbidden masking,
they were obliged to eliminate that
part of it. However masking is not
all the fun. There will be dancing

BUTCHERS CLOSE STALLS
OH MEATLESS OATS
Without a single dissenting voice
New Orleans butchers at a mass meet
ing Friday night voted to close their
stalls Tuesdays and Fridays, begin
ning last Tuesday. as a food conserv
ation measure. The action was taken
on their own initiative, and was dic
tated by pure patriotism, which swept
all thoughts of personal loss far to
one side, and made a new record for
New Orleans. Though the meeting
was held under the auspices of the
Butchers' Protective and Social Un
ion, whose membership includes about
half the butchers of the city, there
were many non-members present, and
the resolution reflects sentiment
throughout the city, while Food Ad
ministrator Parker pledged his efforts
to its unversal observance.

FACE the FACTS
ET us face the facts. The war situation is critical.
L Unless the Allies fght as they never yet have
fought, defeat threatens. Hungry men cannot ight
at their best; nor hungry nations. Franc, England,
and Italy are going hungry unless we feed them.
Wheat Savi -They must have wheat. It is the
best food to fight on. It is the easiest to ship. We
alone can spare it to them. By saving just a little
less than a quarter of what we ate last year-we can
support those who are fighting our battles. And we
can do it without stinting ourselves. We have only
to substitute another food just as good.
The Corn of Pleaty-Corn is that food. There's a
surplus of it. Providence has been generous in the
hour of our need. It has given us corn in such bounty
as was never known before. Tons of corn. Train
loads of corn. Five hundred million bushels over and
above our regular needs. All we have to do is to
learn to appreciate it. Was ever patriotic duty made
so easy? And so cleart
America's Own Food-Corn! It Is the true American
food. The Indians, hardiest of races, lived on it.
Our forefathers adopted the diet and conquered a
continent. For a great section of our country it
has blong een the staff of life. How well the South
fought on it, history tells. Now it can help America
win a world war.
LeaM.n Corn I~ . it isn't one f66d. It's a
dosen. It's a cereal. It's a vegetable. It's a bread.
It's a desert. It's nutritious; more food value in it,
dollar for dollar, than meat or eggs or most other
vegetables. It's good to eat; how good you don't
know until you've had corr-bread properly cooked.
Best of all, it's plentiful and it's patriotic.
Carm's ladme Vart-How much do you know about
corn? About how good it is? About the many
delicious ways of cooking it? And what you miss
by not knowing more about it? Here are a few
of its uses:
There are at least fity ways to use corn meal to
make good dishes for dinner; supper, lunch or break
fast. Here are some suggestions:

REV. H. LEITH RESIGNS
The Rev. W. H. Leith has resigned
as assistant pastor of the Lafayette
Presbyterian Church to work with
the War Work Council of the Young
Men's Christian Assooiation until the
end of the war. The Lafayette
Church released him immediately
upon his request that he be allowed
to take up his new work and he
already is engaged in it.
His work will be educational and
he already has a French class of
100 soldiers at Camp Nicholls and
another at West End. He also will
conduct private classes at Camp
Nichols every Friday night.
The Rev. Mr. Leith came to New
Orleans eight years ago from New
Hampshire to be Sunday school
evangelist for the Presbyterian
Church. U. S. A.. in this district. He
did that work for four years, when
he became assistant pastor of the

McDONOGH NO. 4 NOTES. i,
Friday, Feb. 1, at 9:30 a. m., the
completing exercises of the Eighth
Grade A of MeDonogh No. 4 were
held and twelve boys received their
Certificates of Attainment.
The recitations, dialogues, and
songs, although very patriotic in
character, were interesting and thor
ouhly enjoyable. The school orches
tra, composed of seven boys, ren
dered several selections, which were
highly appreciated. On the whole,
the program was carried out in a
very creditable manner.
One source of regret and disap
pointment was the fact that Mr. E.
W. Burgis, a great friend of the boys
and their school, was unable to be
present, because of being confined to
his bed. His presence was greatly
missed, as well as his address to
the boys, which is always a very in- I
teresting and helpful one. We hope
to have him with us next time.
Addresses were made by the fol
lowing well-known citizens of our
town,-Rev. Sidney Vail and Messrs.
A. Hubener and Frank i. Henning,
who distributed the certificates. Rev.
Vail delivered the closing prayer. I
Their talks were very instructive I
and full of good, wholesome advice.-(
which the young of the present day
need so much.
The faculty wishes to thank these
gentlemen, not only for their pres- 1
ence on this occasion but for their I
heart-to-heart talks, which prove so
beneficial to our boys.

WAITED 35 MINUTES.
They were standing at Canal and
St. Charles streets, and this crowd
of Algerines were in a hurry to get
back to God's country, one of them,
a heavy set, good looking gentleman
with curly hair, who has a reputa
tion for having a good appetite, sug
gested that in order to make good
time that they wait and take a Lou
isiana Avenue car because it would
go all the way to the ferry, and as
it was near supper time, no chances
were to be taken. It was agreed
and all eyes were directed toward
West End. In silence they stood un
tll the oil man with a keen eye that
an oil man only can have, espied
something that looked like a Lou
Isiana Avenue car. It was headed
for the river, but the passled expres
sion on the oil man's face said that
something was wrong. The car had
two signs which denoted that it
would go in two directions. So
with Peters avenue on one end and
Louisiana avenue on the other, the
boys threw up both hands, and after
anxious looks at each other, they
decided to wait for some other ear.
cBy this time another Algerine ar
rived and you could see he was in
a hurry for he had his watch in his
hand. There was now nearly a

ALGIERS BRHACH A. I. C.
During the past week, the s~twing
department of the Algiers Branch of
N. O. Chapter A. it. C., has been in
active, as the N. 0. Chapter had no
work to give out. However, next
week a new lot of work is expected,
and then all our workers will be kept
On the other hand, the knitting
class has turned out a nice lot of
sweaters, 28 of which were sent over
to Chapter headquarters last week.
and it is expected to send over fifteen
or more during the coming week. This
is a splendid record of which we are
justly proud. Mrs. R. Whitmore and
Miss Albert, instructors of the class,
are to be congratulated on the quan
tity and quality of the work turned
out by the class. A quantity of wool
for the making of socks has just been
received, and from now on the class
will devote all its energies to the
manufacture of socks, which are so
badly needed by our boys. The class
meets every Wednesday morning and
every Saturday afternoon.
It has been decided that surgical
dressings class will meet three days
each week. Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday, from 2 to 5 p. m. Miss
Herbert. captain, and Mrs. Vallier and
Mrs. O'Brien, lieutenants, will each
take charge of an afternoon. This,
of course, will not interfere in any
way with the sewing. awhich can be
done on these afternoons just the
same. Now that weather conditions
have improved, it is hoped the attend
ance at these classes will also im
prove, so that we may turn out work
in a sufficiently large quantity to be
a credit to our branch. Several new
names have been added to the mem
bership and these ladies will begin
work as soon as their uniform is com
