Food Conservation Plan To Be Ex
plained To Them.
This Slogan of the War to be Brought
Home to Every Home in tbe
County Next Week
‘‘Food will win the war!” This is
the slogan that the Woman’s Section.
Council of Defense for Anne Arundel
County, under the leadership of Mrs.
J. E. Craven, plans to bring home to
the housewives of Annapolis and the
rural sections of the county during
the next week These women, who
from the first have been active and
have earned the commendation of the
'authorities and the public for their
efficient volunteer work, are work
, ing under the plan for a National Food
Conservation Campaign.
At a meeting to be held on Thurs
day of this week further volunteers
trom among the women of the town
and county are looked to to come to
the front and help spread this gos
pel of defeating the Huns, not by
joining such an organization as the
ftmous “Regiment of Death" of their
brave Russian sisters, but through ac
tive affiliation and assistance to the
battalion of life. At this meeting, in
the headquarters of the local Coun
cil of defense in the Court of Appeals
Luilding, further plans looking to an
active house to house canvass during
the succeeding week, beginning Sun
day, October 28th, and lasting through
to November 3rd, xvill be Dur
ing Thursday and on succeeding days
this week there will be some one on
hand to meet the volunteers and ex
plain to them what the work demands
of them next week. It may be said
light here that the work will not be
hard, it will be something that any
ii telligent, patriotic woman can and
really should be willing to do in loy
alty to government of and for civili
One important proposition in the
whole scheme of food conservation is
this. While the papers for months
past have been full of statements from
high authorities in the government
emphasizing the need of care and
economy in food consumption, recent
developments show that this lessor,
lias not been taken to heart. That
this is so is not considered a direct
reflection upon the loyalty of the wo
men of the couni ry, but rather raises
the question of whether or not they
actively read this type of article in
the daily press. Next w'eek this is to
be met by a house to house canvass.
The things that can be done the gov
ernment’s admonition that they
should be done and to a great degree
ar. exposition of how they can be done
will be brought to the individual
front door of the women of the town
end county.
At the same time the Defense Coun
cil will personally explain to the
housewives the utter falsity of the
rumor—now almost surely establish
ed as a bit of German-inspired
propaganda—that the United States
Government has led women to spend
long hot hours over the preserving
kettle and pickle jars with premedi
tated intent to commandeer the re
sult of their labors.
Here are some of the things con
tained in the message the Anne Arun
del Branch of the Woman’s Council
of Defense will take to the women of
Anne Arundel County and Annapo
lis during next week.
“The present war has brought
American women face to face with an
absolutely new situation. Their
husbands, sons, and brothers are
fighting side by side with the soldiers
o. the Allies. The fight is America’s
as well as the Allies, and if they fail
we must carry it on ourselves, or else
America will witness on her own
soil the same atrocities which Belgium
and France have suffered.
“The sooner the Allies can win the
war, the fewer of our American boys
will lay down their lives upon the
battlefield, and the sooner those who
survive can return to us.
“But this war cannot be won with
out food, and the simple fact is that
the entire present supply of certain
staples is insufficient to take care of
the Allies and ourselves unless we at
home are willing to use these staples
e refullv each day, and every day.
until the war ends.
“If we do not do this voluntarily,
it will be necessary for the govern
ment to apportion supplies as some of
the European Governments are now
“The government, therefore, asks
every woman in America who is con
cerned in the preparation of food for
home consumption to enroll herself
ir a volunteer army, pledged, in so
far as her circumstances make it pos
sible, to an economical use of certain
staple foods, and the substitution for
them, so far as possible, of other ar
ticles of which there is an adequate
To those who should volunteer to
help out in spreading this knowledge
to every household in the town and

is expected of them

Alleged Violation Of Compulsory School
Law Among Cases To Be
Taken Up
Several cases of more or less im
portance were scheduled to come up
in the Anne Arundel Circuit Court
this afternoon. During the morning
session of the tribunal, however,
there was little or no business, except
for passing upon motions in several
minor cases, and assigning dates of
other actions for trial.
One case of local interest that was
disposed of was that of Michael
George, a colored man of the city,
who some time ago was arrested and
fined for selling gin on Sunday.
When the case was called, a motion
fc\ State’s Attorney Green that it be
passed without prejudice to the State,
was granted. In other words, the
view is taken that this case is one
that should have come before the
grand jury for investigation, and not
placed on the criminal appeal docket.
It is now unlikely, therefore, that the
case will be brought before the grand
Among the cases docketed to be
taken up this afternoon was one in
which the offense charged is a viola
tion of the new compulsory education
law. The alleged offender is Mr.
Charles Stinchcomb.
Prayer Meeting Night Changed.
Owing to the Liberty Loan mass
meeting to be held at the State House
on Wednesday night, the prayer meet

Will Be Permitted 'o Come Home
On Flection Day
The Transportation Lxpens; Wi.i Fall
Mostly Upon Ihem And Is
Information has been received that
si Idlers at Camp Meade will be
granted furlough on election day to
enable them to return home to vote.
An exception will be made, it is said,
in the case of recruits arriving within
It days of the election, ti this re
ported order remains effective it is
claimed that the contingent of col
ored rookies to be sent to the camp
next week will not be permitted to re
turn home and cast their ballots.
Because the cost of a ticket from
the camp to Annapolis and neighbor
ing places ami return is small, most
of the recruits will avail themselves
of the prospective furlough and will
spend the day at their homes. Not
so with the recruits whose homes are
distanct from the camp. They will
not be justified in meeting the cost of
transportation to and from tho camp.
If they return home the candidates
will be called upon to pay for their
ri ilroad tickets. Thus far the can
didates are about the only contribu
tors to the campaign fund, and their
pocket books were pretty well emp
tied by the expensive primaries.
Maryland soldiers In camp at An
niston will not be permitted to rer„
turn home on election day. Even if
granted furlough they would not fee
like paying the transportation costs
It is estimated that about 15.000
Marylanders are at tho several train
ing camps, in France and in the Navy.
Their absence on election day will
have an important bearing on the re
sult because of th< failure of the
Democratic majority in the Senate at
the special session of the Legisla
ture to agree to the House bill, by
which the votes of absent soldiers
end sailors could be canvassed, they
will be disfranchised on election day.
Several States have enacted the law'
which Maryland failed to put on the
statute books.
