CREIGHTON'S << The Moscow Home of Good Clothes for Men and Women NEW RULES TO GOVERN ALL PUBLIC EATING HOUSES , A new program for all public eating places, effective October 21, is announced through R. F. Bicknell, federal food ad ininistrator for Idaho, by the United States food administration. The new rules apply to all places throughout the United Stales where cooked food is sold to be eaten on the premises and affect nine million regular or occasional pa trous. "The public's cooperation is re quested in enabling full compliance by our eating places," says Idaho's admin istrator. The general plan of the food admin istration with regard to the conduct of public eating places has been reduced to twelve definite "general orders." These twelve rules furnish the specific meas tires by which the food administration plans to carry out, so far as public eat ing places arc concerned, the announced, plan that for next vear the American food program will be a direct reduction in the P consumption of all food, partial-I™ „Hy the «.ptL «her tte. , ™ of substitution of one food for another. These new regulations carry into effect the recent announcement of the food administration that in fulfilling the Am erican promise to the allies to send them seventeen and a half million tons of food this year, the public eating places would be called upon to undertake in many particulars a more strict program than last year." Concerning these twelve general or-,a rs- the food administration in a cir-(and lar to the proprietors of public eating I places says: "It has not been deemed | advisable or necessary at the present time actually to license the operation of public eating places, but in cases where ED.

Many business men will be interested in knowing that the trade-mark and tailoring of this well known company, coupled with our expert service, is at your command.

A failure to conform to any of the following orders will be regarded as a wasteful practice forbidden by section four of the food control act of August 10, 1917." These general orders prohibit the serv ing of any bread that does not' contain at least the 20 per eent of wheat flour substitutes, and of this Victory bread no more than two ounces may be served to a patron at one meal ; if no Victory bread is served, four ounces of other breads, such as corn bread, muffins, Boston brown bread, etc., may be served. The limits named apply to any one person at any one meal. Bread served at board ing camps is excepted as is bread con tabling at least one-half rye flour. No bread is to be served until after the first I course is on the table and no bread or j toast may be served as a garniture. ; „ „ . , . . « a "" " as p * v/d m a I a " d ° nIy "liTf 34 !

No waste food may be burned, but all duced to obtain fats. The food administration relies on the hearty cooperation of the vast majority of hotelkeepers and other proprietors of public eating places to observe these reg ulations voluntarily, but is prepared to use the full force of its power against the few who would interfere with the success of the plan. A paragraph in the circular says : "We know that the majority of men in this class of business will welcome this enforcement on the ground that it protects the patriot from the slacker and gives the honest man who wants to save for the country protection from the wrongful acts of his unpatriotic com petitors." Attention is specially directed towards the conservation of bread and butter, cereals, meats, fats, sugar, coffee, cheese and ice, to fresh vegetables and fruits which should be served when possible, and to unnecessary suppers, teas, lunch eons and banquets, which are condemned as "fourth" meals. The food adminis tration desires as few fried dishes as possible. Simplified service, with meats and vegetables on one plate instead of in side dishes, and only necessary silver ware, and simplification of the menu and the menu card are urged as means of saving not only food, but labor and pa per. The general bill of fare should be abandoned because the great variety of dishes listed makes waste through spoil age. Simple bills for breakfast, luncheon and dinner with limited dishes, changed fro m day to day for variety, are recom mended, also the use of hors d' oeuvres, vegetable salads, fruits, sea-foods, made " dishes and animai by . pro ducts, which save staples and many foods • The war program discourages the table d'hote meal except when confined to few courses and small variety, as on the Continent. American plan hotels should require guests to write orders, and all menus should be in plain English, act ually describing the food. The new regulations affect hotels, res taurants, dining cars, steamships, clubs, and other places where food is sold to consumed on the premises. In a message to the managers of such estab lishments the food administrator fully explains the food situation with refer ence to the war, and tells what the people of the United States must do in the way of saving food in order to make good the pledge which, authorized by the presi dent, he gave to the allies at the recent conference of food controllers. "There is no prospect of a proper end ing of the war before the campaign of the summer of 1919." says Mr. Hoover. "To attain victory we must place in France three and a half million fighting men with the greatest mechanical equip ! ment that has ever been given to any [army. While we expect the position on j the western front may be improved, from ! a military point of view, between now and then, there can be no hope of a con summation of the end, that we must secure until another year has gone by." The food administrator points out that this accomplishment in 1919 will save a host of American lives that will have to be sacrificed if the war continues until 1920. To strike the final blow in 1919 means that we must not only find the men. shipping and equipment for this gigantic army, but that our own army, the allied armies and the civil popula tion of the allied countries must, in the meantime, have ample food if their strength is to be maintained. "We can do all these things," he declares, "and I believe we can bring this business to an end if every man, woman and child in the United States tests every action every day and hour by the one touch stone—does this or that contribute to winning the war?" "We must appreciably decrease our own imports of food, notably sugar, coffee and tropical fruits," he says, and J points out that while our wheat produc I tion this year is better than last, our I production of other cereals is less, and jour resources are.no greater than last year. "However," he says, "it is possible for us to give Europe its vastly increased requirements and at the same time have a margin over the quantity necessary to maintain our own health and strength," The food administrator finds we shall | apparently jiave su fficient sugar to take care of the present rate of consumption and to provide for the extra drain of the allies, and sufficient coffee if waste fulness in brewing the beverage is elim inated. Of our own products there must be a reduction in consumption- and waste of foodstuffs and of meats and fats ; that is to say, pork, beef, poultry, dairy prod ucts and vegetable-oil products. Stress is laid, however, upon the fact that the food administration does not wish cur tailment in the use of milk for children. Patriotic proprietors of public eating places demand enforcible rules for their own protection against the slacker in their business. The federal food admin istrators of the various states will en force these orders against those not suf ficiently patriotic to follow them volun tarily. UNIVERSITY IS TO HAVE Y. M. C. A. HUT MR. MORGAN, EXPERIENCED WORKER, COMES TO TAKE CHARGE OF WORK * * F. E. Morgan, the associate student secretary for the western department of the Y. M. C. A., will be here for the next week or ten days organizing work along the lines of social entertainments and re ligious services for the men and students in training here. Mr. Morgan spent several months working at Camp Kearny, San Diego, California. Recently, however, he has been visiting educational institutions in Utah and Montana in the interests of the Y. M. C. A. All student work under the war work council is to be the same as in the camps. The student classes in the, different Sunday schools of Moscow are expected to take a very important part in the work of the Y. M. C. A. It is hoped, with the aid of the ministers, to put on the work in the classes which is best adapted to the needs of the students. The qjiestion of a Y. M. C. A. building can not be answered at this time. The Y- M. C, A. work with the S. A. T. C. was not included in the 1918 budget, and the money used for it must be taken from funds which belong to other de partments. Moreover, the funds for 1919 are fifteen million dollars less than is needed. However, President Lindley and others interested in Y. M. C. A. wojdc have taken the matter up with the war work council at 'San Francisco, and rough plans, and an estimate of the cost of a building are being made. "At any rate," said Mr. Morgan, "there will be one or two Y. M. C. A. secretaries who will have an office on the grounds, and some place will be pro vided where the soldiers may rest and write."

The allied armies are smashing in the defensive lines of the central powers every time they strike. There are seven distinct cordon that encircles the Hun and his vassals. Since July 15, last, the enemy has failed to hold his lines at any one place where they have been serious ly attacked. The Bulgarian government has surrendered unconditionally and have ordered their allies to evacuate Bulgaria within 30 days. A powerful Turkish army has been annihilated. Germany and Austria-Hungary asks the allies to consider a basis of peace and discon tentment among the civilian population of the central powers is developing to serious proportions. On the Italian front the Austrians are strictly on the defensive. The anarchists and pro-German rule of the Bolsheviki is quickly passing from Russia, and the neuclus of a remolded eastern front allied battle line is in the process of forma tion. It is backed by British, American and Japanese forces, and is already act ing as a menace to German influence in western Russia. The allies are closing in on the Teutonic power on all sides. The handwriting is on the wall, clearly discernable to Teuton and Entente peo ples alike. Teutonic resistance is crumb ling. The beginning of the end of the war is in process. A few months more of fighting will inevitably bring the enemy of democracy to his knees. Consider the inevitable effects of cas PUBLIC SALE!

WALKS, Auctioneer Owner J. G. VENNIGERHOLZ, Clerk ■ , , j granted that _ the casualties are in the i same proportion. The Germans have J lost approximately 28 per cent of their fighting men in four years of war. Sup i posing that a million men were fighting on both sides of the western front, the * | loss would be at the rate of seven per I cent P er annum ; or, 200,000, which is at the rate of 60,000 per month,' Now, the United States troops have been moving to France at the rate of nearly 300,000 men a month lately. That would fill the gap left by casualties and provide an additional army each month of 240,000 men. The Germans on the other hand must replace the men lost. Since March 21st, last, their losses have been greatly in excess of 60,000 per month. Previous to this summer the opposing armies could checkmate each other pretty well. Now the allies are smash ing the Teuton lines frequently in vari- * ous sections, and they are not check mated. Following the allegory of the chessboard, this means that before long the power of the German lines will no longer be able to prevent the checkmating of their kind. A big victory loan is impending in Canada, and the fourth Liberty loan is now drawing to a cessful close in the United States, in face of these destructive influences the indus trial markets are stiffening. They are storing up energy for an advance the like of which has not been known in many years.
