STORE THOSE POTATOES AT HOME!
While those Irish potatoes are easy to get—and while commercial storage facilities are
crowded with war materials—it is your patriotic duty, and your opportunity, to take
home a hundred pounds or so of spuds and store them for winter use. The Food Dis
tribution Administration says, you can store potatoes in your backyard by putting straw
on the ground, potatoes on top, then covering with straw protected by a layer of earth.
In a basement or closet, a rack that is airy, not too damp, not too warm (but never
freezing), and in a dark place, will prove a money-saver and a guarantee of potatoes
on your menu all through the winter.

INVESTIGATE OFFICER WHO
STRUCK UNSHAVEN SOLDIER
Fort Devens, Mass., Dec. 2 (ANP
—Quiet satisfaction that the army
will attempt to make amends in
cases of flagrant mistreatment cf
soldiers is permeating the ranks of
the 650th Quartermaster troop tran
pport group here. Several weeks
ago, one of the men ir the outfit
was struck over the head with the
butt of a rifle, reportedly because
the man would not shave. Th»
soldier is said to have contended
that it was against his religion to
shave and refused to do so. The
officer who struck the man, alleg
edly a Capt- Walton, is rumored
under investigation. Gen. B. O.
Davis and Civilian Aide Truman
K. Gibson visited the post shortly
after the incident.
Social relationships are some

clarification of the sort of conduct
expected of officers has been arriv
ed at. The little town of Ayr just
outside Ft. Devens where most of

to dancing with colored soldiers. I

In spite of paying this vast tax bill, the Company
has been able to maintain Omaha’s enviable record
of electric rates among the lowest in the nation.
In 1917, your residential electric rates were 30%
lower than the average for cities of Omaha’s class.
And, today, the people of Omaha are paying
$8,000,000 a year less than they would pay with

peace—abolish the poll tax.” An
other letter, from Kentucky said,
“The poll tax has to be abolish. Wo

Another letter, from Alabama,
addressed to Senator Lister Hill,
said: “Across a thousand, thous

Another letter plso addressed to

The letters, which were unsolic

..HIRE 5 NEGROES;
Philadelphia, Dec. 3 (ANP) The
hiring of five colored workers by
the Chase Bag Company, located in
South Philadelphia near the Del
aware river front, was the cause
of a strike in which 200 employes
participated, making it necessary
to shut down the plant for two
days, it was revealed this week.
The strikers, white and members
of the Bag Workers’ Federal union
Labor 20939 (AFL) stopped work at
their jobs the entire day last Mon
day. Tuesday, a few returned, but
they didn’t work. A meeting of
employees, held in the street out
side the plant, voted “to go back
to work eventually, but left the
time and conditions up in the air”
a company spokesman said.
The company is engaged for the
most part in war work, its line of
production including ammunition
bags and cardboard containers for
food and Other articles used by
the armed forces and lend-lease.
A spokesman for the firm said
the Negroes were hired in accord
ance with the rulings of the FEPC.
The War Manpower commission
and the U. S. Employment Service,
he said, have made the suggestion
that they be hired.
No member of the union would
make any statement other than
confirm the fact of the walkout in
the absence of Thomas Mailcn,
