France can bestow is now Foch's it

when it was given to "Papa" Joffre in

Is Latest Report
London. Aug. 8. The gain In na
tlonal efficiency is so great as a re
suit of the wartime liquor restrictions
that It Is certain Great Britain never
will return to pre-war conditions In
this regard, according to a statement
made to The Associated Press recently
by Baron D'Abernon, chairman of the
Central Board of Control, which has
to deal with the drink problem. Ba
ron (D'Abernon said:
"The regulations limiting the hours
of sale, providing for the dilution of
spirits and beer, and forbidding treat
lng, have resulted In remarkable do
cresses In drunkenness and the dis
eases Incidental to drinking. The
level of drunkenness today is about
half that of a year ago, when It was
one-third that of the pre-war time.
There has been a general decrease of
about 83 per cent. In drinking among
both men and women.
"The progress of Improvement has
been so rapid and continuous that the
Govornmont la fully satisfied, and n

The reduetion in temperance has been

Connecticut boys and girls are go
ing strong in the matter of growing
pigs. The youngsters are increasing
their output this year by 500 per cent.
both in membership and in the num
ber of pigs they are growing. Pig
club work was started in this state
little over twelve months ago. In the
first year, 541 members were enrolled
and 600 pigs were grown and fattened.
Now there are over 2500 members
growing more than 3.000 pigs. This
means an increase in Connecticut's
Dork supply of over a half a million
pounds, and these pigs are being rais
ed largely on dairy by-products, kitch
en, garden and orchard refuse that
would otherwise have been lost.
Seventeen banks and trust compan
ies in the state have helped to finance
boys ancT girls that wanted to grow
pigs. The following table shows the
enrollment by counties; each member
has at least one pig, many have two or
three pigs, and some have more:
New Haven County. 800 members.
Hartford County, 564 members.
"Fairfield County, 498 members.
-Litchfield County, 237 members.

On this date In 1782 Samuel
Hearne, the gallant explorer of the
Canadian north, was defeated by the
French at Fort Churchill. Hearne was
one of the most daring of the ex
plorers who invaded the northern
wilderness, and he has been called
"the father of Arctic exploration," as
he was the first white man to gaze
out upon the ice floes of the Arctic
ocean. He also discovered the Great
Slave Lake and trafeled through vast
regions west of Hudson's Bay, where
white man had never been before. He
claimed vast territories for England,
and built Fort Churchill in an at
tempt to hold it. The French, how
ever, defeated this attempt, and took
Hearne prisoner. On his release he
returned to England, where he died
ten years later, at the age of forty
eight. His story of his Canadian
career Is one of the most wonderful
works of its kind ever written.
