AD Druggists 1.10 AMERICANS Hill DECISIVE FI6HI NEAR THIERRY Marines Advance 2 £ Miles. Take Im portant High Ground—Enemy Attacks Halted)—French Also Gain. London, June 7.—Although the lat est German communication announces that the situation on the battle front is unchanged, there has been a change on one of the most important sectors in Picardy. And American marines were responsible for it. Attacking on a front of about two and one-half miles in a fight that began Thursday at daybreak, the ma rines, in four hours, drove back the enemy over a distance of two and one quarter miles and occupied all the im portant high ground northwest of Chateau Thierry, which, in a previous fight, the American machine gunners had turned into a shambles by the accuracy of their aim as the Germans tried to wrest a bridge from them. Aiter a breathing space in Thurs day’s battle, the Americans late in the afternoon, returned to the fray and at last accounts hard fighting was in progress for this important sector, which commands the Marne at that p;irt of the front where the bat tle line swings eastward toward Rheims. The marines took 100 Ger mans prisoner in the early encounter, while the French troops, on their left, also gained an advantage over the enemy and made 160 of his men cap tives . (.(‘minus Reinforced. So hard pressed have the Germans been by the attacks of the Americans in the Chateau Thierry sector during the last few days that they have been compelled strongly to reinforce their front, using three divisions of picked troops in an attempt to hold back the Americans. Thus far, however, their efforts have been unavailing. To the northwest around Veuilly la-Poterie, where recently the Amer icans have dealt the Germans several1, savage blows and captured portions of the ground they were occupying the enemy now seems fearful of another onslaught, (and is deluging the region with shells. No infantry attack by either side has been re ported, however. It seems probable that the Germans soon will ask the Americans to show their merit as fighters in a battle on the t. Mihiel sector, southeast of Verdun. American patrols report heavy movements of troop trains from the_northeast passing westward be hind the Toul sector in the direction of St. Mihiel. Men Like Tigers. The fight started at 3:45 o’clock this morning and the Americans had attained all their objectives by 7:45 o'clock. The Americans have been pressing the Germans so hard that the enemy has been forced to throw three new divisions of his best troops in the line during the last three days. (The Americans fight like tigers. Their commanders have all they can do to hold the men in check. Even the wounded aire enthusiastic and eager to fight. They are proud of their wounds. A general who vlsitei a field dressing station said he wa3 elated by the sight. -W.S.S. 4(l,:i«7 BBLS. FLOUR RETURNED Arkansas Sends to Allies 127 Freight Carloads of Surplus. Washington, D. C., June 4.—A train of 127 freight cars, containing 40,367 barrels of wheat flour, valued at $442,914, was turned over to the Pood Administration by the people oi Arkansas, the result of a drive to ob tain flour for our army and the allies according to a statement issued by the Food Administration today. When the appeal came for America to go wheatless until the next hairvcst, Ar kansas was one of the states to re* spond. Churches, clubs, civic bodies, fraternal orders and commercial or ganizations joined in urging the peo ple to turn in their accumulation of wheat flour. Every county food ad ministrator ' went to work at once Holders of flour in virtually every case turned in their stocks at cost. The merchants handed the flour over to the county administrators and sign ed agreements not to buy wheat flour outside their own counties until the harvest. As a result several counties have agreed to go absolutely wheat less until the harvest. Although the return of the Hour entailed an immense amount of labor and In many cases long hauls to and from stores and railroads, the people made no charge for the extra haul. The entire transaction was financed by the Simmon’s National Bank of Pine Bluff, which checked up ah stores and returns, did all the neces sary bookkeeping, paid freight charges and drew a single draft for the whole amount involved. For this service no charge was made. -w.a.s. Drives Out Malaria, Builds Up System The Old Standard general strengthening tonic.

Wiles, St3te Hotel Chairman, State Capitol, Little Rock, Arkansas. In view o. General Crowder's order with rfigur'd to registered men and its undoubted result in depletion of hotel staffs, and in view of the necessity of steady progress to a much simplified hotel living, and with the growth of national demands lor food conserva tion, labor and thrift generally, it seems to me that the time h s arrived when the hotels and restaurants of the country cajn quite well simplify their entire cuisine by reduction in numbers of items on the menus. The Food Administration believes that the co operation of the hotels and restaur ants of the United States in such .mea sures has been so fully and loyally given in the post that the suggestions herein contained will be followed. It the number of alternative dishes no., offered to customers on each menu can be grecf.ly reduced it will decrease the labor required in preparation, the stocks required in. reserve ml the waste arising therefrom. A variation in menus from day to day will offer in the end the same varieties and se cure the above benefits. A casual perusal of representative menus of leading hotels would seem to me to indicate that from fifty to one hun dred items could be eliminated during the months of June, July and August. We are extremely anxious to secure a reduction of fresh beef consumption in order to maintain the Allied supply, and we must secure this without sub stitution of pork or poultry, of which while we have enough for ordinary course of consumption we are not in a position to provide their additional use as substitutions for beef. We havo supplies of by-products, such as ox tails, tongues, livers, kidneys, sweet breads, tripe and brains, because only the meat cuts are being exported. The use of these could be employed, but more especially tr.;e use of sea' food, vegetables and fruits. It would scat;: to me possible to eliminnfe on the menus steaks and roast beef except ing two or three times weekly. The above has come to me direct from Mr. Hoover. Please take this up in your state at once, and particularly with hotels and restaurant assetir.fions an 1 formulate some constructive program on the above lines. (Signed) JOHN McE. BOWMAN.

I wish to call your attention ague, to my letter of May 24 dealing with the Meat question. You are urged by Mr. Hoover to cut your consumption of meat per person from 3.1 to 2 lbs. per week.

The Council urges all to refr in from unnecessary expenditures of ev ery kind, and to bear constantly in mind that only one thing is now of real importance, and that is the win ning of tire war. The Nation’s resources in man-pow er, money, transportation, food stuffs,; raw materials and fuel, have alre.-.cA j been subjectel to heavy strain, r.nd ii I is the clear duty of every citizen to i guard against increasing this strain | by a single wasteful act. It is most creditable for everyone— man and won. m, boy and girl—to be economical in dress, food and manner o: living. Every evidence of helpful self-denial on the part of all in a time like this is most' commendable. This war is more than a conflict be tween armies; it. is a contest in which every man, woman and child can and should render real assistance. Thrift and econonmy are not only a patriotic privilege, they are a duty. The above request is made by the State and National Councils of De fense, and we trust that every citizen of Little River County, will do their best. A. D. DuLANEJY, Chairman of County Council.
