Binned.
The following is tlie address hy Mr.
Farrell:
Mr. Chairman and (icutlemcn of the
Hakort; of Section ".I of the Stat
of Illinois:
When I was invited hy your chair
man Mr. Coodmun, who, has been
chosen leader of Section 31. which em
braces' the counties or La Salle, ibi
reati, Kendall, Grundy, Putnam and
Livingston, to speak to you a little
whllvS this afternoon up on the urgen
cy enll sent out by the State Council
of llefpusp in mailers pertaining to
food conservation of the War KtMer
gency Council of the Hnhinu Industry.
I felt tint a mail belter versed in
these matte's could pcrhuns nuoo
clearly outline maev of the ii.ipoii
ant details thai you will be asked to
consider.
In reading the circulars culling this
meeting together, one of the laoiors
that seemed to be upermost in the'
minds rif the officials of the Knit :
r.omy Council was that or a rule to
abandon the practice of takum hack
unsold bread. No. I know very well
that in Ihis seel ion there is very lit lie
or no bread relumed to our dealer,-.
The one reason I Ihink is because 'he
bakers in this section make it o
(food that it is ealeu so last and
pleased the patrons so well that ir'
they did have a lew urn old loavs
they would not li ne the m rvi t, re
turn it. That hi the kind of baker
we have in this community. Tin re
are some seel ions thai may he afDs !
ed if a resolution of this hind iva
adopted by the bal ers of Ihis icctioc,
but I feel salisliod t in this pii s-n
crisis dealers should lie glad lo r.' t
the sort of bread that is made and
sold In this community.
When I was a young fellow 1
thought the acme of pe, tectum wunbl
be that of a baker and 1 always re
greted that 1 did not learn Hie irat'o.
you know there ore some bakers in
the larger cities that, have become si
sclentilie in the art of bread male
Ing thut they can almost make bread
without the use of Hour. I am .i.,l
the that some process is u, -ed in

I think that, matter ought to he locked
Into a little hil. Another Ihinj; that
ought to he seriously considered at

PARAPHERNALIA FOR ONLY A
HALF OF NUMBER TAKEN INTO
RANKS WANT MEN TO WEAR
SOLDIER'S BADGE.
Lack of equipment is the crying
need of the national guard at the pre
sent time, especially clothing for the
enlisted men. Company C is laboring
under the same handicap that other
organizations turnout the slate lind
themselves up against.
After men are accepted for service
and have passed the reipiired physi
cal tests, they expect lo be furnished
with the uniform that gives them
the badge of the soldier, but as Ihis
equipment is not available at this
time it is impossible to furnish the
recruit wit ti uniform. Forty-two men
have already been accented in Com
pany C and no equipment can be had
for their use.
Captain Woodward talked with the
regimental quartermaster of the
Third Regiment Thursday afternoon
over the long distance phone and was
informed that no equipment could be
furnished before mobilization. This
was also the answer that the com
pany commander received at the ad
jutant general's ollice in Springfield
ten days ago, when ho visited thut
department.
The same conditions prevailed last
year at the time of mobilization when
Company C left the homo station cn
Juno 2ii, a number of men were with
out uniforms and It was several
weeks after arrival In Texas that this
equipment, wus received. In a great
many cases shoes were so badly worn
thai men were nimble to go out for
drill and those who were in civilian
clollies were almo.-.t in rags before
they secured ihe government clothing.
These conditions aro deplorable
and is the cause of a great deal of
dissatisfaction among men and to
remedy these conditions the oflieers
of the local company are working on
some plan to furnish the equipment
for the men of ihe Oitawa company
so that when they leave here after
the mobilization order that they will
have (he appearance of a company
of soldiers instead of resembling: a
mob.
