The Greeneville Daily Sun, Thursday, October 31, 1918. Opening and Closing Hours . Effective Nov. 4th A closing program effecting all in dustries in Greeneville, and which will go into effect on the morning1 of November 4th, has been adopted by a committe appointed by, Mrs. Henry Baker, Greene county Chairman for Committee on Commercial Economy, by request, of Mr. C. C. Gilbert, Ten nessee Chairman, as follows: "I am going to ask that you appoint a com mittee for Greene county and as soon as that committee is appointed, get them together and work out a sys tem of opening and closing which will be satisfactory to the majority of the merchants in your town, and I will use my office in assisting you in having the agreement entered into by merchants respected." ' The enforcement of the program has been found, necessary in order that fuel, food, and man power be conserved to assist in the -successful termination of the war. We are calling on all classes to help. In this,, spirit, we call on the merchants of Greeneville to do their part by adopting shorter hours. The public will realize that this is neces sary for the common good and that the regulations herein prescribed are reasonable.' . To that end we fed that it will be the pleasure of our citizens to co-operate thoroughly ,and see that each item indicated herein is faithfully observed. The government says, you open your store a little later in the morn ing, if necessary, go down to the store yourself, make the fire, sweep out the store, arrange the stock and we will keep the customers away un til you have had time to get your store in order for the day's business. At a given hour, which all merchants in your town adopt, open your doors for business and .continue as stead ily as possible to an early closing hour in the .evening. Then, if nec essary, keep your own books, write your own' letters, make out your own statements and do anything else nec essary for the successful conduct of your business. .... ' In this program of opening and closing the government is doing by the merchant the same as is being done by the bank. It is keeping the buying public away from the store during long hours of the day, oftimes far into the night and is enabling the merchants to spend more time in the managerial department of his busi ness than he is permitted under the present arrangement.

Indications are that it will be one of the worst winters the Rus sian people have experienced in all their history." - , All summer the food situation in Russia, particularly in Moscow, ' Pe trograd and other large cities has been steadily growing more and more acute. In the latter part'of August, before the writer left Moscow, bread, or that mixture of straw, oat husks and other ingredients of unknown origin which , Moscow inhabitants are induced to accept as bread, had al most entirely disappeared, and cer tain city districts had not received the usual allowance for nearly a week. The government had classified the population into categories, whereby workingmen and government em ployes received a larger allowance, while professionals and well-to-do people get the smallest, which in Moscow amounts to one-sixteenth of a pound. In' Petrograd the bour geoise or middle class fare poorly on an allowance of three herrings a day. The shortage of bread is largely due to the government's short-sighted policy in fixing a low price for grain which did not even cover the farm er's expenditure, let alone profit. The peasants refused to comply with the decree to turn over all grain in ex cess of a certain arbitrarily fixed amount to the food committee, and when the latter were reinforced by a detachment of armed "bread cru saders" the peasants gathered from several villages and offered resist ance, frequently putting the crusad ers to flight. But even if the government price were much higher the peasants would not willingly exchange their grain for I worthless money, of which they seem to have much and which has no prac tical value to them. They want man ufactured 'goods, ' which the govern ment is unable to furnish, as most of the factories are idle for lack of fuel and raw material, and also be cause the bolsheviki need the work men to fight on the numerous fronts, , HOPKINS CHAPEL.

The Greeneville Sun, Greeneville, Tenn., Dear Editor: Will write you a few lines to let you know I am getting along nicely, and hope you are the same. No doubt you , are getting good news from over here, and it is true, for I am here where I can get the "dope." The Sammies are taking lots of pris oners, but a great many of the boys I talk to who are being relieved at the front say they are trying to leavn as many on the field as possible, to keep from being bothered with them. I was talking to a fellow this morn ing who was in a big drive a few, and Jie said the Americans are push ing the Huns back so fast they could hardly keep up with them. If our American boys would check up when they start a drive, we would have fewer casualties to report, but they run into their gun barrage some times and of course the result is they get shot up. But at that they never stop until they get the Huns. I have, and am seeing lots and lots of bun gled up soldiers and Hun prisoners. They have been having some bad weather to fight in for the past two weeks. It rains a great deal of the time. The Huns are glad to be cap tured by the Americans but are not fond of the English and French. I overheard a prisoner say the other day after we had finished checking, that the Kaiser could go ,and hang himself for all he cared. He seemed to be very happy that the Americans had charge of him,, and its that way with a great many of them I am sure. Well, so much for that. I want to ask the editor to send me a copy each week of the Greeneville Sun. I am always so glad to hear from you all. I can tell you lots of my experience when I get home again I would; like to say a word for the Red Cross just here: also the K. of C. and the salvation army. These three organizations are on the front with the boys that need them, and am sure they are doing their bit in this great war. I hopeno one will fail to help these organizations at any time. I understand you are going to have a Fourth Liberty Loan campaign Don't fail to put this over, for that is going to be the biggest end of our, victory. I feel sure our country will not fail us at this time. We are try- Ling to do our bit over here and when we get back we want to hear that you have also done what you could. That will sound good to us, and we don't want to see anyone that failed to give us a helping hand. I am hoping that by the time you hear from me again there wiil be peace. Xet me., hear from you all often. I will . close for this time. With best regards to all, and wish ing you a merry Christmas, I remain, Sincerely, ASHLEY J. DRAPER, Co., I. 128th Inft, A. P.
