MASS. 3 ' . Womeim of Michigan This is Yoot Affair! IS IT NOT PROVIDENTIAL that the first vital issue to come up since the women of this state have gained their franchise is that issue which most intimately and most seriously affects the life and happi ness of woman the booze question? IF THERE WAS ONE QUESTION on which women have always wished they could register their convictions it was on this one of the saloon. ON APRIL SEVENTH the en franchised women of Michigan will enjoy that golden opportunity and for that reason we are abso lutely certain not only of success, but of a vote so overwhelmingly against this last forlorn effort of Lie "Wets" as to end the matter ' for alL time. FOR WE CONFIDENTLY ex pect that the most intelligent vote ever cast in this state will then be recorded the Intelligent, clear-seeing decision of the women added to that, of the men who previously' voted this same question down FOR MAKE NO MISTAKE! while the so-called '.'Light Wines and Beer" amendment sounds al most harmless, it is the old question under a cloak of verbiage it means in plain language the re-opening of the saloon. . . . AND- YOU KNOW WHAT that means women know only too well. SO WE WILL NOT ATTEMPT to anrlyze thpt particular document here. Time enough for that before election day. ; . ' ' OUR PURPOSE NOW our ardent desire is to impress upon the Women of . the state, the necessity of registering at once. TRUE, YOU HAVE until March 22nd and in cities or townshirt of less than 10,000, until March 2S th to register. . ' BUT YOU KNOW how dangerous is delay. Something may come up you may delay and then forget until it is too late and then find yourself barred from exercising that precious privilege for which so many good women have fought so long. DON'T DO ITtDON'T put off this matter from day to day. It is vital. You will want to vote on this amend- ment. We need not advise you how there is no doubt as to what women will do on this subject. ALL WE ARE ANXIOUS ABOUT is that you register so you will be able to. vote on this pernicious bit of attempted legislation on April seventh. And on every other issue " that is to be voted on then. IF YOU DON'T KNOW the condi tions of registration, read below we give a brief outline. YOU WILL OBSERVE among other things that you are not asked to tell your age merely to state that you will be 21 or over on election day SO THAT IS EASY isn't it? And ; J . the rest is just as simple. v ALL YOU NEED DO IS do it! Don't delay. Don't put it off. Exercise your voting privilege now that you have it. Prove that you ' prize find that you-deserve it - ' . i REGISTER I Today is the best day.

Lansing, Michigan 'i ";:!' :rii,,,;,ii" ALIOVMHCETO child I MICHIGAN RALLIES is noADTOECONOMYj TO AID CENTENARY Home Economics Expert Says; Way Is to Teach Youth Early Proper Apportioning of an Income. The best and most natural way of beginning true national economy, wise apendLng and wise saving," says Ituth Wardell, head of tb home eco nomics department of the University of Iowa, and who last summer started a home economics department In a Cleveland (Ohio) bank, "is by giving the children an allowance. The lesson of properly apportioning ' an Income thus Is early learned." , MUs Wardell favors the allowance arrangement at a very early age, say at six or seven. I, may then be very small, and out of It the budding citi zen may be expected to provide only school pencils, tablets, etc. The pur chase of school books provides a log ical next step; a little later some per sonal belongings, such as shoes, may be added. 'I say shoes," explains Miss War den, "because children seem to take more Interest in shoes than In most articles of wearing apparel, and be Fixing the Allowance. cause shoes repreeent a highly Impor tant Item to which chtldren frequently pay little heed." . The allowance should provide a little margin to encourage careful buy ing and saving posalbllltles. It sheuld not necessitate so much care or thought as to burden the growing youngster. It should never, under nor mal circumstances, be "helped out" by irregular gifts or expected to cover other than the recognized items. The allowance, with Its purchasing respon sibilities, should be increased gradu ally, steadily. By the time high school is reached the boy or girl should be buying practically all his or her own clothes. Miss Wardell tells an Interesting story of a boy who called upon her in Cleveland, telling her of his man ner of apportioning the rather gener ous allowance" luaffe by "his father. He knew to a penny what every article he wore had cost him ; he was IntellN gent regarding relative textile and wearing values ; he saved steadily, sys tematically, with Joy. A Chicago mother started her little daughter out, similarly, at eight years old and at sixteen the girl was a bet ter buyer than she was. These chll- ( Buying His Own Goods. dren were well started en the road to fine .aud self-respecting and independ ent citizenship. Both will enter col lege with u" nice little financial nest egg to await the beginning of their business or professional life. The child's allowance, it may be added, should be for'neceslties mainly, with but a fair and juodest margin for personal luxuries and pleasures. It should always be recognized as allow Ing for a regular proportion of sav ings, preferably invested in govern mental securities.. It should be care fully adjusted, rigidly adhered to on both sides of the bargain. Such re spect and observance not only will teach the child good economic habits, but. will abolish many too frequent an noyances for the financial head of the family. Each child given an allowance will understand that this sum, with his support and other parental provisions, represents his fair share of-the fam ily Income, and that, as a decent citi zen, he must not ask nor expect to ex ceed it. An adequate allowance sys tem, moreover, wllir obviate the evil habit of crying or pleading for'speclal Indulgences and mora funds. i ...... THINK BEFORE YOU SPEND Diamonds? Why Not W. a. 8.?

"Michigan Is again proving herself. As her res idents stood . shoulder to shoulder In accomplishing every task that was laid before them up to tho time of the signing of the armistice, so are these same people rallying to the call of the Methodist church for aid In making the Methodist Missionary Centenary an unprocendented success. 'Tho people .know that the Centen ary program for world democracy, eternal peaoo and Christian fellowship Is Ideal, but It ean be accomplished only through education. .The hearts of men must be cleansed before war Is cast aside. World democracy can not bo made a reality, by a few men In Parle setting up an International constitution. That constitution will bo worth only so much paper If the populace la not Imbued with the aplrit of Christ That la what the Centen ary ie trying to do, imbue them with the spirit of Christ, through showing them how practical and beneficial the teachings of the Master are". : L W K S f iff' , - Gives a brilliant srlosy shine that Gives a brilliant plossy shine that does not rub oft or dust off that anneal to the Iron that laU tour times as long as any other.

BENSON Executive Secretary Detroit Area Methodist Centenary. " Dr. Benson Explains Move. This was the brief explanation that Dr. John G. Benson, pastor of th Wesley Methodist church, Detroit; assistant to Bishop Henderson and executive secretary . of tho Detroit Area in active charge of the Centen ary campaign he has a few more titles but space will not permit me to name them gave me of ' the alma. Ideals and plans of this great protest ant drive. I had heard this Centenary discuss ed on all sides and I went to Dr. Den son for a clear, concise definition of Its plans. While this' movement is a religious and Christian movement, it gives one a new conception of thoe terms. Dr. Benson la what is known 1 as a progressive preacher. He be. lieves in practical religion and he is working, day and night to "put across'; the .Centenary for he believes in its teachings; world democracy, eternal peace and Christian fellowship. , "The church has awakened" he said. "It is -not teaching any new principles. Christianity means helping the halt and the blind and working among the j poor. That Is what Christ did and that la what the awakened church is doing. We have quit preparing peo ple for after life and are trying to asslt them In living seven days each week on this earth. . I As I sat In his office at 418 Sixth street, Detroit, it. seemed a veritable beehive. This man," who is responsible (or the collection of nearly 92,000,000 ' In Michigan, was answering the phone very minute.' People were in and out of hla .office but sharply . at 11:8,0 o'clock, this Saturday morning, the hustle and bustle and clatter of the typewriters suddenly ceased. ., Halts' Work For Prayer. . VWe liave a few minutes of prayer and song and get together at thU time", he explained. "You see some people think that our real object in this campaign is to. get the $120,000, 000 we have asked for. . That Is a part of it; but a small part.. We are trying te spread the teachings of Christ and If we. can show the men of Michigan ; what good the church can do towards bringing about an Ideal world we do not. need to worry about the money.. "To do this will take as much pray r'as work and. bo that is why we ara meeting at this time. The campaign of intercession is a vital part of this drive and I believe that if it goes over H will be due more to prajrer than any other one agency." And so business stopped. A great business office was losing t&o time of a large number of employes for a half hour. But as I watched this llttl prayer meeting, and saw the light In the faces of the entire gathering, ! wondered .whether It might not be good for a' few other buslmai houses and I did not ieel much doubt about the success of the Centenary in MIchU Adults Take one or two tablet anytime, with water.

If you wake ud with a bad taste, bad breath and tongue is coated; if your head is dull or aching; if what you eat sours and forms gas and acid in stom- ach, or you are bilious, constipated nervous, sallow and can't get feeling just right, begin inside bathing. Drink before breakfast, a glass of real hot water with a teaspoonful of limestone phosphate In it. This will flush the poisons and toxins from stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels and cleanse, sweeten and purify the entire alimen tary tract. Do your inside bathing im mediately upon arising In the corning to wash out of the system all the pre vious day's poisonous waste, gases and sour bile before putting more food into the stomach. ' To feel like young folks feel; like you felt before your blood, nerves and muscles became loaded with body Im-j purities, get from your pharmacist ft! quarter pound of limestone phosphate which Is inexpensive and almost taste less, except for a sourish twinge which is not unpleasant. Just as soap and hot water act on the skin, cleansing, sweetening and freshening, so hot water and limestone phosphate act on the stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels. Men and women vho are usually constipated, bilious; headachy or have any stomach dis order should begin this Inside bathing before breakfast. They are assured they will become real cranks on Jjlr) subject shortly.
