MOV1F. SCENF. PAINTERS CAN
DO IT,
It Is said that every motion picture
studio in California is represented at
the American Lake, Wash., national
array cantonment. About fifty-seven
of these niovie men were scene paint
erg. In accordance with the attempt
to put evry man whre he will be of
the most service in the new army,
these scene painters, along with num
erous cartoonists and other artists,
have been selected for special train
ing in camouflage.
They go thru the usual drill and
regular training. Then at other hours
they attend camouflage classes.
The civilian reading his newspaper
v and magazine is becoming gradually
more impressed with the importance
of camouflage on the bp tlefields of
Europe. As he realizes on what a
vast scale this art of concealment
has. developed, he's glad that the
United states is putting movie men
on the Job. Surely no one is more
expert in making on object look like
t something it isn't than the man who
does that stunt for the film producers.
THE ALLIED WAR COUNCIL.
The announcement that our leading
European allies had determined at
last to centralize their military nu
thority was received in this country
;. with satisfaction and relief. American
observers had long seen that such a
move was Inevitable if the allies were
to succeed. Thre must be one war,
with unity of direction, instead of
many wars bearing little relation to
each other.
But tfie "supreme war council" an
nounced by Lloyd George, has proved
disappointing. It is seen to be only
a step in the right direction, and a
short step at that. The New York
World fairly describes it as being
neithor "supreme" nor a "war coun
- cit." ,
It is merely advisory ta the various
: governments. Those governments re
tain their power of Independent ac
tion. They will act with more com
plete information as to the status of
the war on the various fronts and the
requirements of their allies, and that
Is about all. The great far for the
preservation of democracy continues
as a group of separate campaigns
which may or may not work effective
ly to a common end. according to cir
cumstances. Military decisions remain in the
hands of civilian rulers affected by po
litical considerations. And Germany's
war for the conquest of the world re
mains in the hands of a strong, cen
tral military authority.
It is being recalled In thin country
that the "fruited States never made
any real headway In the Civil war un
til President Lincoln put the entire
direction of the northern armies in
tho hands of (ien. (Jrant, and let him
use his own Judgment. What is need
ed hthe allies, apparently, is a cen
tra,! military council, tho smaller the
better with the United States repre
sented on it which shall make war
as Grant did.
Such extreme concentration and
simplicity of plan and action are of
course impossible of full realization
in this complex war. But the closer
we approximate them, the sooner will
victory come.

Strictly speaking, every life Is a
career because It Is a course thnt Is
run from start to finish, but ns gen
erally used the term Implies nn un

tional and out of the ordinary, snys s

career is the Hfe one lives and the

ASKED 8Y WHEELER
SURPLUS CROP IS ALREADY EX
HAUSTED. ILLINOIS FOOD CON
TROLLER LEARNS AFTER RE
TURN FROM CAPITAL. ;
Chicago, Nov. 2d. Daily .wheatless
and porkless meals will be war ra
tions for Illinois under new orders to
be iKsued immediately by."ood Ad
ministrator Harry A. Wheeler.
Theje orders will be issued as the
result of a conference of state food
administrators in Washington, from
which, Mr. Wheeler returned yester
day. The wheatlesH meal is .made neces
sary. Mr. Wheeler said, .J the dis
covery that the entire sutrmis wheat
crop for export to our allies was ex
hausted November 1. '
All wheat to be sent abroad to
serve our own soldiers and, those of
the allies must be saved in tho kitch
en between now and July 1918. This
amount is estimated ut ubout 125,
OOO.OW) bushels.
War bread become a necessity un
xlor.the new regulations, and the or
der to put the nation on a war bread
basis is held up only until experi
ments can determine the best form
ula. The orders proclaiming a wheatless
meal will be Issued today or tomorrow
by Mr. Wheeler. The order for the
porkleas meal will bo issued as soon
as further instructions are received
from Washington.
Mr. Wheeler reported that the food
situation is crave in all parts of the
country. He gave an account of the
meeting, stating that the plan he had
put in force in Chicago regarding
price regulation of commodities was
adopted and will be put into effect by
all other states.
"Increasing rigid supervision of the
use of wheat Is necessary now," he
declare- and will become more im
perative as time passes.
"The necessity of milling a stand
ard flour cannot be overestimated.
Experiments have been - conducted
with wheat and corn flour mixed, the
percentages of corn flour ranging
from 10 to 2." per cent. None has
been a real economy so far.
"I will prepare an order Immediate
ly putting the wheatless meal in ef
fect and ordering that baking be re
duced. Wheat must be savpd, or the
entire country will go on corn bread
diet. Even the use of ryo bread is
not a great saving, a large per-!
centage of the rye flour is from
wheat." , "
If this is not done. Mr. Wheeler
said, the last sixty days before the
next crop is available the mills, grind
ing at 50 per cent above normal ca
pacity, will be without wheat to grind.
On the porkless days no food In
which lard is used, bacon, ham, ribs
or other pork products can be used.
"The hog run Is light," he said.
''Packing is below normal and the de
mands must be niet."
OTTAWA INDUSTRY

Under the caption "Ottawa's Latest
Proposal," the National Glass Budget,
a magazine devoted to the glass indus
try, in Its Issue of Nov. 17, says:,
"Prior to the natural gas boom in
Indiana and tho west, a quarter-of a
century ago, Ottawa, Illinois,- was
something of a glass manufacturing
center, a number of factories having
been attracted to that place, owing
to nearby glass sand deposits, exten

facilities. Glass sand was a strong
drawing card. Much of It, nearly 100
per cent pure', Is now being shipped
regularly to factories throughout the
middle west, and the coal deposits af

Chamber of Commerce: ' '
''A new company has recently been

What It Is
CHIROPRACTIC FOR CHILDREN.
'Children of all ages usually respond
very quickly to Spinal Adjustments,
and every child's spine should be ex
amined by a competent chiropractor.
Thousands of children are needlessly
suffering from some form of spinal
trouble, and while they are young is
the time to have their spinal defects
adjusted.
If your child Is sick, weak or puny,
or not properly developed In any part
of the body, there Is a CAUSE, and
invariably it is found in the spine. Do
not wait to see whether or not the
child will outgrow it; have its spine
palpated and, if necessary adjusted.
It Is an acknowledged fact that if a
spinal analysis of all children wero
made, the percentage of defects and
curvature would be in the majority.
The spinal column Is the most import
ant framework of the body; clinging
to this wonderful and flexible chain of
24 irregular bones are many of the vi
tal organs, aud it Is so strong that it
can bear a heavy burden, and yet to
flexible that it will respond to nearly
any movement of the body, so long as
.It is normal and has only the curves
givn It by nature, It is the source of
strength and grace, but when it Is out.
of alignment, or curvature exists, it
causes disease.
Many times a slight curvature that.
Is unnoticed or neglected In childhood
causes no tcouhle until later in life.
It is a proven fact that many cases of
spinal curvature originate In early lifo,
and as the child grows older, very oft
en the curvature becomes more pro
nounced, which means more pressure
on nerves supplying some part of the
body and it is this pressure that in
variably Is the cause of disease, shut
ting off the nerve force and thereby
preventing nature from doing the
work it once did when not Interfered j
with, is not doing now because of the
existing nerve pressure on the region
of the spine wtere the curvature or
subluxation exists.
There can bo no eHect, without a
cause. This being true, why not re
move the cause and let nature take
care of the effect.
Chiropractic Spinal adjustments, and
Many of the defects of the spinal
column can be correctort by taking
many children now accounted as de
fectives are victims of a subluxation
or curvature of some part of the spinal
column that has affected the nerve
supply to some tissue or organ of the
body.
Fifteen hundred young boya at. the
