In in tvinrtonr remarks the mayor said information deemed authentic br him had come to his attention that would seem to show that the government is contemplating the Boring of the harness, equipment Kd carpentry departments and the curtailing of work to a vast degree throughout the remaining arsenal departments. Saturday Tho Argus published a Cop7 of a personal letter of protest by Mayor Schriver on the situation, which "was forwarded by liim to Illi nois and Iowa senators and con gressmen. The resolution of protest adopted hy the city commissioners yester day was drawn along the same line. Seek Organized ApiUiiioa. The resolution adopted by the commissioners seeking the aid ' of gad-city organizations of every dc-1 acription in creating an agitation in behalf of holding the arsenal de partments and working force intact fellows: Whereas, it has come to the knowledge of the city council of the city of Hock Island, Secretary ! of War Baker is considering the re- moral of certain departments from ' llllllii cities. And, whereas, the present de- relopment and maintenance of the Rock Island arsenal holds great tore (or the future or the entire community. Therefore be tt resolved, That we request all organizations in this en tire community fraternal, civic, commercial and otherwise, who have civic pride and interest in this community to send protests of the strongest nature to the administra tion at Washington against the re moval of any department or depart ments from the arsenal and against any material reduction in the em ployment ot labor on the arsenal. and that this resolution be riven the widest publicity possible through the press. City's Protest The resolution of protest adopted as the city's stand in the situation follows: . Whereas, it has come to the at tention of the citizens of this com munity that the administration at Washington is considering removal of certain units or departments of the Rock Island arsenal to other cities, also the reduction ot activi ties 1n the remaining departments to a considerable degree. And whereas the Rock Island ar senal is the nation's greatest man ufacturing' arsenal, the develop ment of which has coBt the govern ment more than $250,000,000; its factory buildings being equipped with practically all' new and up to date machinery of the value of ap proximately f50,000,000, employing 8,000 workmen who, with their fam ilies, are located in the tri-cities. And whereas the people of this community are a unit on the propo sition that it is to the financial and military welfare and interests of this government to keep the differ ent departments or units at this plant intact and permit same to re main here, And whereas we believe the present administration at the arse nal possesses a wonderful organ ization, an should this nation be come involved in any difficulties in the future we would have an equip ment and organization in one com pact plant that would be wonder fully more efficient than to have the different units and departments scattered throughout the country, Therefore be it resolved. That the city council of the city of Rock Is land in regular session assembled does most strenuously protest against the removal of any of the departments comprising the arsenal plant and does most strongly pro Ust against any material reduction 1b tha employment of labor in the various departments of the arsenal. And be it further resolved. That copies of this resolution be sent to Congressman Hull of Iowa, Con gressman Graham of Illinois, Sen ators Kenyon and Cummins of Iowa and Senators McCormick and Sher man of Illinois. amis aisZSGLUB APPEAE3 FRIDAY XLT IIOLXI2 00NC2RT The Oriole club of AugasUna college will giro the home concert on Friday night of -this week In the college chapel.

M7 Film Ruins Teeth Dental science has traced most tooth troubles to a fihn To that slimy film which you feel with your tongue. It clings to the teeth, enters crevices and stays. The tooth brush doesn't end it The ordinary tooth paste does not dissolve it The film fixes itself ; then night and day, month after month, it may do a ceaseless damage. That is why well-brushed teeth discolor and decay. Only periodic cleaning in a dentist's chair removes fixed film. The great need, as every dentist long has known, is for a daily film combatant Stain, Tartar and Decay That film is what discolors not the teeth. It is the basis f of tartar. It holds food substance which ferments and forms add. It holds the acid in contact with the teeth to cause decay. Millions of germs breed in it They, with tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea. All these troubles have been constantly in creasing, because the tooth brush alone can't prevent them. Film Cati Now Be Ended Dental science, after years of searching-, has found a film combatant The fact has been proved by years of clinical and laboratory tests. Now the method is embodied in a dentifrice called Pepsodent. Leading dentists everywhere are urging its adoption. And a 10- -Day Tube is offered free so that anyone may see its results. Watch Them Whiten It is film that clouds your teeth. See the change as you remove it Pepsodent is based on pepsin, the digestant of albumin. The film is albuminous matter. The object of Pepsodent is to dis solve it then to day by day combat it Pepsin long seemed impossible. It must be activated, and the usual agent is an acid harmful to the teeth. But science has solved that problem by discovering a harmless activating method. Now iriw'n" of teeth are being cleaned daily in this sew, efficient way. Just Ask for a Test The way to know this method is to ask for a 10-Day Tube. Note how clean the teeth feel after using. Mark the absence of the slimy film. See how teeth whiten as the fixed film disappears. Judge by the visible results, then read the reason for them. Decide for yourself what is best for your teeth the old ways, or the new. Cut out the coupon and learn what clean teeth mean. Tube Free THE PEPSODENT COMPANY, Dept A, 1104 S. Wabash Ave, Chicago, HI.
