RED CROSS SURGICAL DRESS
This branch of the Red Cross work
has grown very rapidly and in order
to accommodate the workers addi
ditional room was needed. The work
rooms are over the Post Office and
recently Mr. Mansfield and Mr, Byerly
have very kindly arranged their of
fices so that the Red Cross workers
could have the entire north end of
the building. This gives the work

There has been an impression that
only those persons who have taken
or are taking the regular course in
surgical dressings would be allowed
owork. This is a mistaken idea as
there is an immense amount of the
work that can be done by women who
have not received previous training
and who can become very proficient
in turning out large quantities of
special kinds of dressings in a very
short time. The rooms are open for
these volunteer workers every after
noon between 2 and 5:30 and a few
minutes instructions will enable one
to learn to do one kind of dressing.
Men workers are wanted to do the
surgical dressings Monday evenings,
and on Tuesday and Wednesday even
ings, and every afternoon women
workers are needed. If you can come
out and help and if you do not do so,
you are not doing your best. That is
the Red Cross Motto now,—not your
bit—but your best.

Mr. Hoover asks you to save butter, lard, suet Mazola

With the Nation-wide movement to save animal fats the
housewife is confronted with a serious problem—if she would
continue to serve fried foods.
Thousands of American homes have found the answer in
Mazola, the pure cooking and salad oil from corn.
Because Mazola is a vegetable oil—and because a thorough
test on the part of housewives has proven that Mazola is more
practical, more economical than the old cooking mediums.
It makes fried foods digestable—and the great big factor for
economy in Mazola is that it can be used over and over again—
does not transmit taste or odor from one food to another.
A recent demonstration showed that the same tinful of
Mazola could be used eighteen successive times for deep fryingl
Mazola is fine for salad dressings, too.
Get Mazola from your grocer in pint, quart, half-gallon or
gallon tins. The large sizes give greatest economy. Also ask for

comfort kit containing towel, shirt,1
writing paper, pencil, soap, handker

cording to a cablegram received at
the national headquarters of the
American Red Cross.
The number of kits can not be stat
ed, the cablegram continues, but the
fact that every soldier has one means
that the work done by American
women is a big comfort to the sol
diers now on the firing line. This fact
should be a solace to the American
women, who have made them, as well
as to the soldiers. More kits. are
wanted with socks and tobacco.

DeWitt Clinton Moore, a 7 year old
boy of Grafton, N. D., is doing his
bit by economizing on sugar in order

fourth of the amount of sugar he has
been accustomed to, and sells the re
mainder to his mother.

On March 3, 1918, the war coun
cil of the American Red Cross re
ceived the following cable from Major
James H. Perkins, Red Cross Com
missioner to France: "At the request
of the United States' army, the Red
Cross has just arranged to install
with all American troops, now en
gaged in actually fighting Germans,
special front line service. This is de
velopment of the front line canteens
through which the Red Cross has dur
ing the past six months served more
than one million Poilus wit hot
drinks and above all else a friendly
boost or write up, in or near the
"Today the Red Cioss has fifteen
rolling canteens behind the lines.
From these canteens are sent forward
daily, often in the small hours of
night, fifty or more large receptacles
containing hot drinks. These are
served free to men going on or com
ing off duty. The work has proven
itself to be of such value to the
French that the American Army has
asked the Red Cross to have this ser
vice directly in touch with medical re
lief stations which are nearest the
front. The work is often done under
heavy shell fire and requires men of
great bravery and sympathy.
"Eugene Hale, brother of Senator
Hale of Maine, has finished six months
without vacation wit hthe rolling can
teen service near Verdun. He has
served thousands of French troops
and gained great commendation from
a French general who noticed the
character of his work. Returning to
Paris today just before leaving for
America, Hale says, 'While men are
glad to have hot drinks, their chief
astisfaction consists in the sense this
service gives them of a friend being
there to extend a helping hand and
cheering word at the critical or tired
"American army officers are mani
festing keen interest in having this
service at the disposal of American
troops and the Red Cross plans to en
list in France and in America a sub
stantial number of men of the high
est caliber to undertake this wonder
ful service. It will be performed at
a point nearest the fighting line at
which civilians will be permitted to
contract with men."

QUESTION NO. 1: "What can you do for my lame back?"
Chiropractically, we always look for the cause. Stiff back,
lame back, sore back, or backache, may be caused by over work,
but frequently it is a symptom of some deeper seated trouble. In
fact, we can find tenderness in the back linked with most any dis
ease. However, when we speak of "lame back," we usually mean
the most common form, known as lumbago, (which is nothing more
than rheumatism of the muscles of the back) or "muscular rheu
