Italy Adopts Meaaurei by
Which It Is Hoped to In
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
Rome, Italy, June 21. In order to
solve the problems of farm labor and
farm production, Italy has introduced
a set of communistic measures that
are stated to be more comprehensive
than any of those yet devised by the
various countries of Europe now at
By decree of the minister of agri
culture the entire farming system of
the country has been reorganized on a
mutual basis by which land owners
are forced to aid their tenants, by
which prefects of departments are re
quired to oversee the relations of both
owner and tenant, by which the gov
ernment itself is compelled to buy
and loan machinery, and, finally, by
which tenants must help each other
and loan both machinery and labor.
The decree provides for the exemn-
tion from military service of the
farmer if he be the onlv male left to
till the soil. It also encouraa-es the
employment of women labor on the
tarm, giving them proper pay and per
mitting them to make contracts of the
character customarily made in peace
times wun men laDorers.
Laborers are granted a 75 ner cent
reduction in railway fares, iust as if
on military service, so tbat they may
be shifted cheaply from one district
to another according to labor demands
and the rotation of crops. Special
courts to settle disputes betwen labor
ers or farmers have been provided for
each farming district.
When a tenant is forced to employ
extra help the land owner is required
to pay one-half of the wages of such
help. Special commissions are also
being established in each department
,to regulate the distribution of labor, of
machinery, and of horses, mules and
oxen, no matter who the owner, so
that the most pressing crops and har
vests may be attended to in time.
These commissions are also emoow-
ered to transfer such labor, machinery
and animals from one province to an
Use Brown Bread.
It is honed these measureswill keeo

Soldiers Like the
Modish Dress Styles
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
Berlin, June 15. The campaign of
the Munich police president, of vari
ous generals commanding home de
partments, and of the thirty-five
woman's clubs against women who
dress too modishly and conspicuously
does not meet undivided approval.
Many newspapers have been printing
editorials and letters from their read
ers, protesting against the effort to
modify feminine dress. One of these
Protestants is an officer of a hatterv
of artillery in France, who writes:
tie wno nas experienced for him
self at the front something of the
much discussed 'arravitv of the times'
does not wish at any price to see all
tne Deauty and joy ot life destroyed
by an ashengray Puritanic mood. We
think with gratitude of the women
whose beauty our soul delighted in
during the short rest at home from
the burdens of the war, and we for
bid, with all the straightforwardness
of the soldier at the front, that any
one, even in his thoughts, accuse these
women of lacking a proper apprecia
tion of the earnestness of the war.
You should ask the furloughed men,
from general down to private, whether
they would like to see Germany pop
ulated merely witn -spectacles from
those thirty-five women's clubs."

by a note written by hand, were sent
each month from the commanding)
bases of army corps to soldiers who
had been sent to the rear to work in
munition factories at C . The offi

a new stamp and a new signature,

it recently transpired that the director
of every Red Cross hospital received
a circular catling for a detailed re
port regarding each patient treated in
the , hospital, comprising four full
typewritten pages of questions. An
experimental demonstration proved
that it required two days' time of one
of the nurses to fill out this circular,

sequently had the demand been com

several times to do this clerical work

keeping and the individual records
made up for the personal file of each
man brought into the hospital.

French fruit Industry, both the in-.

other fruit-producing; countries.
