NOT BE CLOSED HERE NOW Whether to close Moscow tight, stopping all public meetings, includ ing churches, lodges and picture shows or permit these to continue to operate while the public schools are closed, are questions that are agi tating the minds of the various boards, including the health and school -board and the city govern ment. The'-school board has closed the schools until December 30, and this has aroused a protest against allow ing the churches and the theatres to continue. A joint meeting of the Befool board, defense council, city authorities and health officers was Jpld and the matter discussed but no Mecision was reached. f _ ___ , ... . , , , , / Dr. W. A.

Dr. Adair today issued an order that school children must not be per mitted to attend the picture shows and forbade the managers to sell tickets to or admit them under pen alty of having the shows closed. Dr. Adair said: going to shows or to church or to any public gathering if they are feeling sick, but children will go if they are half dead, if permitted to. Parents of children who have the disease, or who have been exposed to it, are urged to keep their children off the streets and not permit them to visit with other children.

"The same populations must be fed, the message said, "and until another season has passed, they cannot feed themselves. helping through conservation of food here to feed 300,000,000 hungry people in northern France, Belgium, central Rus sia, southern Europe, Poland and Ar menia.

The new appeal is the 'world conscience' which to whom we are already pledged, we now have the splendid opportunity and obli gation of meeting the needs of these millions of people in the hitherto occu pied territories who are facing actual starvation.

News from Khaki Boys This letter was received by Mrs. Tweedy of Peck, Idaho, from her son: October 26, 1918, France. Dear mother: Will write you an other letter today. While I am feeling pretty good, have got to write about a half a dozen or so. They took my clothes away from me and I have to stay in bed, but will get new ones when they get ready to let me out. My others were tore in strips from going through the German barb wire they had scattered and strung in front of their trenches. Rains here almost all the time. Have been laying here thinking of the boys on the lines, wet, cold and hungry, but it is not bad at that. I got a Christmas coupon today to send home, so I will send it today. If you can send me a box of candy, I sure will be tickled, haven't had any since I left the camps. Suppose Peck is pretty dead now, all of the boys gone. Got a letter from a girl * Geraldine just before I went to the front. She said things were getting pretty blue, all the boys were leav ing. in Well, hope will be home next year some time. How is everybody at home? Jennie to write. From your boy, BILL. Pvt. William H. Whitley, Co. L, 307th Inf., American E. F., France. Tell Mrs. Perry Carter received the fol lowing letter from'her brother. He had been farming in Montana for two years before being called: October 26, 1918, France. Dear sister: Will write to you to day. I suppose you folks think that I am dead, but I am not, but I am in the hospital. Have been since the 16th. I got gassed but not bad. Was on the front 25 days. Rained hard the last ten days, and we were soaked to the hide but that was nothing. Our division got released on the 16th. I thought I was going to be one of the lucky ones, when a few of us got it marching out. We were going back to a rest camp, but I am feeling pretty good now, but will be here six weeks or more. I left Montana June 28 and got about two weeks training in the U. S. camps, and the rest on the fighting line. That's where a fellow can learn pretty fast. Well here's hoping that it ends soon. All of the boys are getting Christmas coupons to send home. I got two of them; going to send mother one. Candy or gum is some thing that is hard to get here. I haven't wrote ör got any letters for two months, but I haven't been where I could. Hoping will be home soon and tell what we have gone through, can't w 1 v » y\ Low Meat Prices vs. High Cattle Prices _ If the farmer cannot get enough for his live stock, he raises less, and the packer gets less raw material. If the consumer has to pay too much for his meat, he eats less if it, and the packer finds his market decreased. The packer wants the producer to get enough to make live-stock raising profitable, and he wants the price of meat so low that eveiyone will eat it. But all he can do, and what he would have to do in any case to stay in busi ness, is to keep down the cost of pro cessing the farmer's stock into meat so that the consumer pays for the meat and by-products only a little more than the farmer gets for his animals. For example, last year Swift & Company paid for its cattle about 90 per cent of what it got for meat and by-products (such as hides, tallow, oils, etc.) If cattle from the farm were turned miraculously into meat in the hands of retailers (without going through the ex pense of dressing, shipping and market ing), the farmer would get only about V/s cents per pound more for his cattle, or consumers would pay only about 2% Cents per pound less for their beef! Out of this cent or two per pound. Swift & Company pays for the operation of extensive plants, pays freight on meats, operates refrigerator cars, maintains branch houses, and in rhost cases, de- I livers to retailers all over the United j States. The profit amounts to only a fraction of a cent, and a part of this I profit goes to build more plants, to give I better service, and to increase the pany's usefulness to the country. ♦ com Swift & Company, U. S. A. say now. How are all the folks?, Answer soon, while I am here in the hospital. Your brother. Pvt. WILLIAM H. WHITLEY.
