Hoover Would Survey Rubber Supply
PROPOSAL that the American gov
■*“ emment investigate the rubber pro
duction possibilities of the Philippines
and South America was indorsed pub
licly by Secretary Hoover after he had
conferred with representatives of Brit
ish rubber-producing interests and
American consumers.
Secretary Hoover indorsed the pro
posal in a letter to Senator McCormick
(Rep., 111.) in spite of assurances from
the British representatives that the
only object of recent British legisla
tion restricting rubber production in
the colonies was to establish a price
to insure reasonable returns and ex
pansion of rubber plantations.
Representatives of the American
consumers of crude rubber said they
were desirous of obtaining an ade
quate return to the producing indus
try, but feared that the restriction
plan would stimulate speculation and
runaway prices, which would be disas
trous to British producers by again
stimulating overproduction with ulti
mate collapse in prices. This, they
said, would in turn injure American
consumers through speculation and
The British representatives replied

After pointing out in his letter that

the world, while most of the rubber
producing properties are controlled by
the British, Secretary Hoover said :
“It is highly desirable that this de

where we can make an exhaustive in

Five States Boosting Next Con

Starting on a cross-continent air
plane flight, on two hours’ notice,
would dampen the enthusiasm of most
advance agents, but J. W. Jackson,
anxious to win the 1923 American Le
gion convention for San Francisco, an
swered “Let’s Go,’’ when the summons
came, stepped into a naval plane with
naif a dozen apples for provender ana
started a little air journey that cov
ered 25 states and part of Mexico. And
San Francisco, exploited by his
achievement, did get the convention.
The San Francisco Legion commit

majority of the votes at the last Le
gion gathering in New Orleans. Jack
son volunteered to travel to the Cres

and olane were furnished, and scatter

ion that aviators scattered leaflets
over enemy trenches in the late fracas.
The steering committee accepted
Jackson’s tender of services and set
about getting the plane. Nothing came
of it. Jackson gave up the idea and
bought his round trip railroad tick(\
to New Orleans. He was about to
leave his home for the railroad station
when a telephone message informed
him that Senator Hiram Johnson hat'
obtained the air equipment for the
journey. Jackson gathered up a few
apples, put on some fleecy clothes h'i‘l
gave up his lower berth to a lady.
San Francisco swept the delegates,
off their feet by its appeal and there
was no hesitancy about naming it th\
convention city. Then Jackson, scorn
ful of railroads, decided to go on to
the eastern seaboard, advertising lij.s
native city by the Golden Gate, as bs
went. The plane took him to Wash
ington, then back through the Middle
West, across the Rockies and back to
the shadows of Mount Tamalpais.

The following poem, written by
Stafford King, adjutant of the Minne
sota department of the American
Legion, is popular with Legionnaires in
all parts of the country:
When the American flag was created,
God, in his infinite wisdom,
Blessed it as a symbol of freedom,
Inspired it as a thing <sf beauty,
And wrote it deep within his book,
“A Melody of Service.”
It is fashioned
With the gold and the gleam of the stars
Against the vaulted azure of a summer
It is spaced with the sheen of a silvered
Upon the pure, sweet snow
"Which gleams from the lily’s petals;
And striped with the crimson flame
Which leaps and glances
From the baby’s heart.
Within its blue and white and red
is enfolded all there is
j Os liberty, justice and democracy,
j Sanctified to us by blood and tears;
Mothers’ tears,
j "Which shine through sacrifice
| Like glistening pearls
j Beneath the softly undulating waves of
southern seas;
And blood of men who died,
As One who has died upon the cross,
That other men might live.
To such a Hag Americans can say:
‘Whither thou goest, I will go,
And whither thou lodgest, I will lodge
j Thy people shall be my people.
And thy God, my God.”

said Mrs. Sadie Banes, 2037 Washing

“Before I took Tanlac my appetite
was so poor it seemed beyond cultiva

gave me indigestion and caused awful
sourness and palpitation. I was simply
miserable from nervous headaches, diz
ziness and knife-like pains in my back,
always slept poorly, and felt so bad
that at times I just had to quit my
housework and lie down.
“Tanlac was so well suited to my
case that it has only taken three bot

restore me to perfect health. It makes
me so happy to be without an ache,
pain or trouble of any kind that I go

Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggists
who are constantly in direct touch with
the public, there is one preparation that
has been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp-Root is
soon realized. It stands the highest for
its remarkable record of success.
An examining physician for one of the
prominent Life Insurance Companies, in
an interview on the subject, made the as
tonishing statement that one reason why
so many applicants for insurance are re
jected is because kidney trouble is so
common to the American people, and the
large majority of those whose applications
are declined do not even suspect that they
have the disease. Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp-
Root is on sale at all drug stores in bottles
of two sizes, medium and large.
However, if you wish first to test this
great preparation send ten cents to Dr.
Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y., for a
sample bottle. When writing be sure and
mention this paper.—Advertisement.
