BRITISH STOMACH IS Campaign of Honor to Show Whether People Will Voluntarily Abstain Be ing Tested Out. (Unlted Press) LONDON, June 7—By the end of this month it will be possible to say whether the British stomach has a sense of humor. Said stomach has been on probation now for several weeks. July 1 the answer will be known. If it is af firmative John Bull may continue to live on voluntary rations. Otherwise, compulsory rations and food tickets. The honor system Is the idea of Lord Devonport, sometimes called by owners of Impatient tummies, ''the glorified grocer." The campaign of honor is on in full blast. There never was any Idea that the national stom ach should fight out its battle alone and unaided. It is supported by bill boards, by pamphlets, by dodgers and newspapers reminders. Kennedy J. Jones, the advertising genius behind the big and successful "Win the War Loan" campaign, is sitting at Lord Devonport's right hand. Jones has bombarded the nation's conscience with such phrases as "If we eat more than our share we eat somebody else's share." "Save the bread and the bread will save you." The honor system is applied to the family only. The food controller is sues orders—which are law—for ho tels and restaurants. Britain is putting its kitchens on a war basis. Food Administrator Hoov er says America must do likewise. Here's the first: Surrey Stew—For four people use one pound of lean beef, two carrots, small bunch of herbs, seasoning to taste, flour to thicken, one tablespoon of drippings, two sliced onions, one turnip, two cloves. Add seasoning to taste before serving, and take out the herbs. | vegetables, Never serve bread witli meat and Professor T. B. Wood of Caius Col lege believes today that Britain's use less animals should be slain. They are on food rations like the rest of the population, but the professor de clares they're "eating their heads off." Wood advocated slaughtering cattle for beef, claiming they do not produce an equivalent of the food they con sume. i GERMANS USE DEVICE THAT WAS PLANNED BY ENGLISH Aerial Torpedo Sank Ship When Dis charged from Seaplane at Side of VesseL (United Press) LONDON. June 7—When a German seaplane swooped down and discharg ed an aerial torpedo which sank the 3000 ton British steamship Gena, the Boche stole one of the pet ideas for naval wanare which the British Ad miralty had been treasuring. Over a year ago the English aeroplanes were fitted out with devices for carrying and discharging torpedoes against en emy ships, but the Germans beat them to It. The idea of aeroplanes attacking in this fashion is extremely practical, a British naval authority declared to day. It Is hoped that the United States will soon start offensive move ments against German ships with this means of attack. A light gun, loaded with cordite can be used to fire the torpedo, or a special launching ar rangement in the form of a light bas ket which throws the torpedo and ables it to bo aimed. en BOYD H.
