Benefit of American Red Cross:
Summit-Valley Branch.
Do Your Bit!
Let's turn the dark clouds inside
out tijll the Boys Come Home!
Spring is near at hand. Now is the
time to look over your herd of ele
phants. Cull out all the old ones.
Bring us all the white ones. Never
was there such a demand for White
Elephants as at the present time.
These animals are of no value to us
either in the city or on the farm, but
the American Red Cross is able to
use all we can furnish of strictly
White Elephants.
Any article that is of no further
use to you, yet is in good, salable
condition may be of service to some
one else. Such articles when wrapped
and tied into a neat, receptive par
cel, and delivered at the White Ele
phant tent will, at once, become a'
most beautiful White Elephant and
will be sold to the highest bidder. So
bring your White Elephants early.
Bring your purse, your appetite, and
your capacity for enjoying a good
time. Bring your smiles, leave your
long faces at home.
Laugh, and the world laughs with
you.
Weep, ah, No —.

ADMINISTRATOR LADD SAYS
THERE WILL BE SUFFICIENT
SUGAR
Fargo, N. D.—Housewives of the
Nation will be amply supplied with
sugar for the canning season. This
is assured by the United States Food
Administration at Washington, D. C.
and will relieve a situation about
which there has been a great deal of
apprehension.
E. F. Ladd, Federal Food Adminis
trator for North Dakota is in receipt
of the following information from
Washington:
"All manufacturers of essential
food products are advised that they
will be able to obtain their full neces
sary requirements of sugar for man
ufacturing purposes during the com
ing season.
"This applies particularly to paclc
of fruit, condensed milk, and such
vegetables for the preservation of
which sugar may be necessary as
well as to the housewives for usage
in preserving purposes.
"When the car shortage is reliev
ed, supplies of sugar will be avail
able for all necessary preservation
purposes. Shipments from Cuba are
steadily increasing."

GIVE A BOOK
Remember that March 18-25 is the
week set aside for a book campaign
all over the country, to supply the
needed books for the soldiers' and
sailors' libraries. There are millions
of unused books in American homes.
These books can do a splendid service
in the camps and cantonments. Much
has already been done, but there is a
demand that far exceeds the present
supply.
What can you do to help?
You can pass on to the men in
khaki the books you have enjoyed but
will not read again.
You can give them some of the
books you like best. They will like
them, too.
You can send novels, tales of ad-

mended Mr. Blume for the position
of superintendent is best expressed
in the foregoing remarks of the
Jamestown College educator who is
thoroughly conversant with the needs
of the Educational system. of thi«
state.
Atty. E. A. Palmer of the Willis
ton school board, after concluding his
work at Fargo in connection with the
Y. M. C. A. work, visited a number
of schools over the state in order to
find wherein the Williston schools
were superior to others and also
wherein some of the other schools
were ahead of those at" hor»t3. And
in speaking of this trip taken of his
own volition, Mr. Palmer said: "Af
ter having seen the workings in the
various schools, I find there are sev
eral things that show the weak points
in our own system and the means to
brace them up and also the points of
our strength over the other institu
tions, so I have come to the conclu
sion that to judge a school man is the
safne as judging a housekeeper, go
into the home and see the conditions
as they actually are."
