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 ings Stamps. 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. F. C. DIED.

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.

He said he is a good man again but feels like he had been pulled through a small ring. 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: HOT BREADS DESSERTS Boston brown bread. Corn-meal molasses ake. Hoecake. Apple corn bread, MufYf, Duamplings. BIscuIts. Gingerbread, Griddle cakes. Fri gems.

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.

Miss Wilcox has the good wishes of all Algiers in her sacrifice for the sake of suffering humanity. SCHOOL NOTES 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. ALIEN ENEMIES REGISTERING Preparations for the registration of alien enemies by the police were completed Saturday night. The registration offices will be open from 6 a. m. to 8. p. m. every day until Saturday, Feb. 9. Women are not required to reg ister, but all male alien enemies over the age of 14 years must reg ister, or be arrested and prosecuted by the Federal government. No persons will be registered at police headquarters or at the new postoflice building. All alien ene mies must register at the precinct stations in whose territories they live. WARNING SIGNS FOR AUTOISTS. Commissioner Stone is having made a number of signs bearing the warning: "Parking Within Twenty Feet Prohibited." These are to be placed on each of the fire plugs as a warning against automobiles or other vehicles being parked to near a fire plug. The police will be in structed to impound any cars found parked tithdn the prescribed dis tance as is now provided by city or dinance. MORE BURMGLARS. On Sunday night burglars entered the saloon of the J. Klienkemper Co. r and stole the contents of the cash register. There was no clue. 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 squad on hand and as they paced up and down, it suggested the spirit 1776 as they were now minute men they had waited 25 minutes already and still had enough energy to board the old reliable? Louisiana car as she came to a stop. Just how late the car No. 318 was has never been found out. BACK TO THE FARIM.

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 busy. 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 pleted. MOUNT OLIVET CHURCH.
