Washington, D. C, Sept. 9. 1917.
Editor Daily Examiner,
Yuma, Arizona.
Sir: Owing to the very high price
of butter, and the now newly estab
lished fact that food-oils (peanut, cot
tonseed, soya bean oleo, neutral, etc.),
when properly churned in milk, pro
duce a table food in every way as
wholesome, nutritious and palatable
as butter, and as these oils are now
much cheaper than butter, a great
many inquiries are being made for
formulas and methods for so churn
ing these oils. The law requires the
product to be called Oleomargarine.
I have been unable to procure any
satisfactory information on the sub
Sect, but I have been furnished the
following for home use, viz.
"Heat a quantity of good deodorized
cooking oil to about blood heat, using
about one-fourth of a teacupful to each
gallon of milk, and proceed as usual.
A three-gallon churning will take
about half a pound of oil. It will has
ten the coming of the butter, assist in
Its better collection, improve the qual
ity of both it and the buttermilk, and
will give, with the better collection of
the butter-fat, an increased yield of
nearly a pound and a profit equal to
the difference between the price of
the butter and the cost of the oil."
The department here, to whom one
would think it proper to appeal tor
information of this kind, declines to
give the public instructions on this
point, as It is feared, if the people
should learn to produce this food,
they might be tempted to sell the
same or to use it in boarding houses
or schools. This it is unlawful to do,
unless the person producing this table
food should pay $600 per year license
and give a bond for $5,000; and unless
dealers who handle this food will also
pay very high licenses.
These great expenses and the dan
gers of prosecution have made it so
that only a few large concerns can
take the risk; and therefore it seems
only a few persons know how really
to make Oleomargarine. Those who
do know and who have the proper
kind of cooling and churning ma
chines, can take the milk necessary
to produce one pound of butter, so 1
am informed, and, by the use of these
food olds, produce 20 pounds of pal
atable Oleomargarine.
I believe that all the people should
be taught to produce this good food;
and that they should be allowed to do
so without the payment of licenses
and taxes.
I would be glad to have your co
operation in securing the removal ot
these unjust burdens from alarge part
of the food supply of the American
people. Yours truly,
(Calexico Chronicle.)
Called to be examined by the ex
emption board, passed with flying col
ors, excepted and certified to the dis
trict board, exempted until March 1,
1918, because he was engaged in ag
ricultural pursuits, then named as an
alternate, given goodbye cheer with
the rest of the Imperial valley boys
who went to American Lake last Wed
nesday, and finally counted out just
as the train left, when he wanted
more than anyone else in the crowd to
be taken, was the experience of Joseph
Hardee McCoy of Mount Signal. Mr.
McCoy got busy again today, trying
to fix matters so that he can go with
the next contingent; but officially he
has been excused until next March
and officially excused he -fears he will
have to remain.
It wasn't because McCoy didn't
want to go to war that he asked ex
emption; he was needed on the farm,
and it looked so then, and the district
The following rulings concerning
the execution of the selective service
law have been issued by the provost
marshal general:
When and whether there will be a
second call is within the discretion of
the president. There is no date set
for a second call and, so far as known
no second call is in present contem
plation. A registrant whose order of liabil
ity is so late that he is not within the
quota of a local board cannot, even on
his own request, be advanced and sent
with the quota.
The fact that more than one per
son is selected from a single family
is not in itself ground for exemption
or discharge.
Many requests are- received at this
office to go thru the lists of persons
registered in an effort to locate miss
ing persons. The registration lists
comprise 10,000,000 names segregated
into 4,557 groups scattered in as many
localities. It is manifestly impossible
to comply with a request to search
these lists for the names of missing
persons, and no such attempt can be
made in any case.
Many registered men who have
been selected for military service
have applied for exemption or dis-i
charge on the ground that they have
been discharged from the army, navy
or marine corps, sometimes for phy
sical disqualification and sometimes
merely unon expiration of enlistment.

MEXICO CITY The department of
Fomento has announced that lands ag
gregregating almost 29,216,000 acres
have been reverted to the government
thru failure of the persons holding
the concessions on the land to comply
with their contracts. The report
states colonies have been placed on
the islands of Guadalupe Cocorro, Ce
dros and Coronada. It is announced
that a commission has been named to
investigate conditions in northern
Lower California and thudy methods
by which the waters of the Colorado
river may be utilized in that region,
the yield from which it is stated, is
in the hands of American companies
who have built canals for irrigation.
MISSOULA, Mont. Sept. 18 Half a
hundred lumberjacks who had been
fighting the Clear Lake forest fire in
Idaho, refused to come to Montana
recently to fight a forest fire because
they feared the effects of emigrating
to a "wet" state after having spent
many months in a "dry" state. The
men said they were sure to get intoxi
cated after they were paid off if they
received their money in a "wet"
board thonught so. "Then his patrio
tism overcame everything else, and i Jt seems scarcely necessary to say
hesaid: "Take me with the first; rve that Prior service or discharge from
made arrangements regarding my
work." But W. W. Harris, of the dis
trict board, wrote him last Saturday
"Having been granted exemption un
til March 1, it is impossible ... to
modify the status of your case."
McCoy thought he was going as one
of the 33 called a few days ago. La
ter, the county board fixed it up for
him at El Centro last Tuesday night,
was wined and dined, and stood in
line while the speechmaking and the
handshaking and everything was go
ing on. One man had failed to show
up, and McCoy thought he was elected
to go.
Just before the boys entrained, it
was discovered that another young
man had been named as alternate,
and he had been named before Mc
Coy. So he went with the crowd and
McCoy stayed at home. But he still
has hopes and is not hiding the fact
from the local and district boards.
the army, navy or marine corps is
not ground for exemption or discharge
from draft, and that such applications
can receive no consideration.
The draft is for the purpose of in
creasing the military establishment.
Registrants may in certain circum
stances be exempted or discharged
to enable them to continue in non
military pursuits, but after they are
selected for military service they may
not be assigned to non-military ser
vice. The selective service law specifical
ly prohibits the acceptance of substi
tutes for men selected for military
duty. The obligation is personal and
cannot be transferred.
Local boards have no power to
grant discharges or hear claims for
discharge by or in respect of a regis
trant when such claims are based up
on the circumstance that persons not
within the degree of relationship spe-
MEXICO CITY The department of
communications and public works has
started on the construction and repair
of eleven main highways connecting
some of the most important cities of
the republic. Among the roads un
der repair are those from Mexico to
Toluca, from Mexico to Tuxpam, Mex
ico to Queretaro, Mexico to Puebla
and others. The department of tele-!
grams reports that 248 kilometers of
new line have recently been built and
22,538 kilometers put in repair. There
are now 18 wireless stations Operated
by the government and six more are
in ""course of construction. Fifty-five
newspapers in the republic have been
granted a press rate over the national
HELENA 'Early frosts will have
no terrors for the garden of James
Swarty of Holter Dam, near here. The
garden is heaten by a stove, from the
inside, and is protected on the outside
by a curtain which is lowered about
it on a frame. The garden is seven
feet square and consists of a series
of terraces, built around a hollow cen
ter to a height of ten feet. Mr. Swartz
claims this arrangement will permit
a growing season from March 1 to
November 10, 90 days longer than or
dinary in this locality. He says he
can grow as many plants on a garden
of this size as would cover a plot of
ground 40 by 100 feet.

The handicap against the exporta
tion of cotton and cottonseed from
the northern district of Lower Cali
fornia into the United States was re
ceived at noon today by Mexican
customs collector Felix Mesa Leon,
stating that the government had
granted a permit for the exportation
without the restriction imposed by the
requirement for a special pernr't.
Since do intimation of a change in
tariff duties has been received, it is
taken for granted that the recently
announced general tariff rates will
prevail. These provide an export duty
of 2 cents, Mexican money, per kilo
on cottonseed, and 3 cents Mexican or
1 cents American on lint cotton and j
seed cotton. This tariff was promul
gated by the Mexican government on
July 1, 1917.
The telegram received today leads
to a belief that the agreement made
by United States Consul Simpich and
Governor Cantu last spring, provid
ing a duty, of $10 gold per 1,000 kilos
of cotton seed will not be in effect,
but that instead will be the Carranza
schedule given above.
Everything at Camp Funston is in
ship-shape. Major General Leonard
Wood, in charge of the cantonment,
is especially delighted with the plans
and preparations.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 18 That the
average United States marine does
not squander his money recklessly, is
shown by the fact that more than 1800
money orders were purchased during
August by United States marines in
training at Port Royal, S. C. "Send
money home" seems to be a sort oi
slogan amongst the sea soldiers, who,
officials report, purchased $60,000
worth of money orders at the govern
ment postoffice at Port Royal imme
diately after the September pay day.

TOKIO Discussing the democratiz
ing influence of the war in the Taiyo
Magazine, Koson Asada, a well known
publicist, says that Japan cannot ex
pect to keep clear of the tremendous
changes that are affecting the world.
He adds: "The development of the
influence of political parties and of
the press have been most noticeable
since the Russo-Japanese war, and
this increased influence has gradual
ly put the influence of clannism in the
shade." ,
