WILL POWER ALWAYS COUNTS
Well to Realize One Has Got to Want
Things Hard In Order to
, . Get Them.
Just wanting something' will rarely
obtain It for you. You've got to go out
nnd get it for yourself. In nn nrticlo
called "Increase Your Driving Power"
In tho American Magazine, n writer
.quotes nn nuthorlty as saying:
i "After nil. a man does wlint ho
Jwnnts to do. Therefore, lie must bo
tnuglit ns a child nnd he must loam In
ndult years to teach himself, to want
to do tho right thing nnd the big thing
nnu to want it so hard that ho Is
bound to arrive nt the wlshcd-for goal.
Anybody can sit down nnd sny, 'I'd like
to bo tho bend of my company, or tho
president of the United States, or the
best snlesmnn In tho world.' That much
is easy. It is exactly what tho baby
does when It sits on tho lloor nnd
squalls for n piece of candy. But It Is
a very different thing from wanting
something so much that one is willing
to set nbout it and undertake at onco
tho doing of tho Impossible.
"Tho troublo with tho average man
is that ho does not want things hard
enough. And one reuson for this Is
that ho has not been taught the value
of tlds 'wanting.' He has not been
shown In his schools and In his life
that mnn has tremendous resources for
wanting and for willing, nnd that, n,s
ho continues to will and will, ho will
llnd himself unknown and unsuspected
layers of energy. There Is aiwujs
enough energy to supply u man's de
sires for success if ho will tap the
source of It."

Bakers Will be Licensed.
Prosidont Wilson yesterday issued
a proclamation plnclng bakers under
govornmont license December 10th
and subjecting them to food adminis
tration rules proscribing Ingrodlonts
and weights of loavos. Prlcos will not
be fixed, but with the standnrlzatlon
it is expected tht competition and sim
plification of distribution will force
down prices for pound loaves to 7 or
8 cents. '
Fancy broads will bo eliminated.
and tho multitude of sizes now pro-
dufced will bo reduced to four with;
standard ingrGdlonts. The weights!
will be one pound, ono and a half, two
and four pounds. Tho loaves will '
havo a croaso In tho middle to permit j
their salo in halves. In baking onlyi
three pounds of sugar will be allowed
for a barrel of flour Instead of an av j
crago of six pounds now used, nnd(
two pounds of vegctablo oil shortening
must bo used lnstend of six pounxls of
lard or oil. Tho food administration
expects to save 100,000,000 pounds of
sugar and tho same amount of lard In 1
this way. Bakers may uso only skim- j
mod milk for bread and rolls will bo
permitted only If mado in standard'
sizes and of regulation bread dough.
