SAVE THE FOOD Help Win the War By Cutting Down Your Menus, The Pennsylvania Committee of Public Safety is waging a campaign for house hold economy, conservation of food, and personal consideration of others. - Penn sylvania is to contribute its one-tenth in the saving of wheat, meat, sugar and fats so that the men fighting at the front and the civil population among our allies will have plenty to eat. The average person is apt to say, “What will my little saving amount to; even if 1 do cut down on my bread, whom can I benefit?” “It is the aggregate that counts,” point ed out one of the officials connected with the Federal Food Administration’s office. “A hotel man gave us an illustration that is right to the point: One of his guests ordered for breakfast grape fruit, cream of wheat, white rolls, lamb chops, four slices of bacon and a plate of wheat cakes. Notice the amount of white flour and wheat in that list. Also notice the fat. > It is safe to say that the man did pot need all hat food. “Any man of sedentary habits who in these days of food conservation consumes double the amount of food he should is an unpatriotic glutton. Any man who ruthlessly disregards the request of the United States Food Administration to save food, especially wheat, is not help- : ing to win this war. It has been said that fifteen per cent, of our people eat enough to feed another ten per cent. "It is the little share that everybody I contributes that will make Pennsylvania’s aggregate of saving really enormous.” j The other day a woman visited an ac quaintance who is connected with the, Federal Food Administration, saying: “I haVe been lucky enough to pick up ten pounds of sugar after visiting several grocers, but that is not enough. You ought to know where sugar can be had : and 1 really would like to get a hundred pounds. Won’t you please help me.” The food administration official looked at her a moment, then replied: “You are very lucky that you are not living in France, or England or almost any other European country. If you were, the chances are that you would be locked up and I am sorry there is not a similar law in this country. The best advice that I can give you is that you take eight pounds of that sugar back to the grocers, keeping only two pounds for yourself: then take your chances with the rest of your follow citizens in getting small quantities as you need it. “Not only are you doing yourself an 1 injury by hoarding, but you are doing ' your neighbors a harm and you are not patriotic. Hoarding will force up prices quicker than anything else and if every- ; body did as you have been doing the sup ply of food would be quickly exhausted.” | rRE NC H AMD CAMr OFFICIAL REORGANIZATION OF 28TH DIVISION Transfers Completed and Trench and Camp Announces Revised Line-up. * This division is at present known as the 28th Division of the United States army.

He spoke of Canadian youths who went across the sea as he roes; who succumbed to the evil in fluence of communities where their leisure hours were spent; and who, because of veneral rottenness , will never fire a gun and will never, many of them, return to the home land— which they have sadly hurt instead of serving. “ Every man and woman in America is concerned in this War Camp Community Recreation Service,” said Mr. Mulholland, “for any one of you may have to decide, after the war, whether your daughter shall marry a returned soldier. What American would hesitate to give $3 for his future son in-law, or his own son, or for his neigh bor’s boy—to help make and keep him fit to fight, fit to carry America’s best ideals into the battle fronts of Europe, fit to rule America after the war, fit to give us children and grandchildren who are clean and wholesome?"

When the tide at last had turned on that , day at Waterloo And the faithful Old Guard was asked what it would do. History records how its brave and true commander Answered: "The Guard Dies, but Does Not Surrender!” And how the gallant little band was wiped out to a man, Yet lives in mortal annals to inspire as courage can. The Old Guard first won its name in other dark days of France, Quelling riots on the streets of Paris with shot and lance, And there is no more fit battle cry for the Guard today, When it takes its place on the western line far away— To fight with a spirit that Freedom e’er engenders— Than the immortal: “The Guard Dies, But Never Surrenders!” Needful Articles —FOR—- Sammie Boys Bedding Rolls, Clothing Rolls, Laundry Bags, Gun Covers, Pistol Covers, Post Cards, Tent Rugs, Tents Made to Order.
