Women at Poor Farm Are Being

of energy at a time when the cry of
the whole world Is "conservation," is
as follows: An old woman at the poor
farm who is to become a member of
Mrs. Troup's division has occupied her
time all day long knitting socks and
then unraveling the work, only to re
knlt them because of the lack of yarn.
"When millions of men in the fight

warm knitted garments It seems the
Irony of fate that willing workers are
nrevented from do ne tneir on De
cause of lack of funds," said one of
Mrs. Troun is also trying to arouse
interest among the women at the Deaf

of the committee, will organise a

A young man who has seen actual
service with the field ambulance will
also talk at the showing of the film,
and the Musicians' Association of

The American ambulance field serv

of Americans in France at the time
the war broke out They constructed
the first ambulance out of several
packing boxes, painted it gray, dec

GEORGE REIM HURT
Turns Out of Eoad to Avoid
Collision and His Car Goes
Into Ditch Near
George Reim is in the Wise Me
morial hospital with several broken
ribs, and, according to Dr. H. A.
Waggener, who is attending him, his
condition is critical.
Kr. Reim, accompanied by Mrs.
Dorothy Wagner, 2215 Leavenworth,
was returning from a trip to
the country, riding in Mr. Reim's
car. Just south of Albright a car
driving at a high rate of speed ap
peared at a curve in the road, going
south. To avoid a collision, Mr. Reim
turned to the right and his car went
into the ditch, turning over.
The man in the car that collided
with that of Reirr drove rapidly away.
People in the neighborhood saw the
collision and hurried to the wreck. Mr.
Reim and Mrs. Wagner were lifted
from under the car, put into an auto
mobile and brought to the city. The
injuries of Mrs. Wagner are slight.
The condition of Mr. Reim was re
ported as greatly improved yesterday.
German Plot Found
In Costa Mean City
San Jose, Costs Rica, May 21.
A far reaching plot to overthrow
the present government of Costa
Rica, of which President Federico
Tinoco is the head, has been un
covered by the authorities. The
former President Alfredo Gonzales,
who was deposed last January, at
which time Tinoco assumed control,
other officials of the former govern
ment and German residents here
and in the United States are alleged
to be implicated.
A German firm In New York is

Three wireless stations have been
discovered at Heredia, the home
city of Gonzales. Other wireless
installations have been found in the
.coast regions of San Carlos and Col

frontier a lumber camp, where three
hundred men now are engaged.
It is stated officially that a wealthy
German named Karl Freise, who re-
cently arrived from Panama, was
detained for examination of his pa
pers and many important facts were

New Rule. Revolutionary in
Character, Does Away With
Much Discussed Golf
Chicago, May 21. Stymies in golf
golf play are abolished by a revolu
tionary rule promulgated by the
Western Golf association today for
play in the western amateur cham
pionship to be held at the Midlothian
Country club, Chicago, July 9 to 14.
The new rule, which does away, so
far as three-fourths of the United
States and all of Canada are con
cerned, with one of the most dis
cussed penalties of golf, also Vlim
inates to a large extent the bother o:
lilting balls on the putting green
The new rule upsets one of the
cardinal rules of the ancient Scottish
eame. bv oroviding that the ball near
est the hole shall be played first when
both balls are on the putting green.
1 he new rule reads: s
"When both balls are on the put
ting green, the ball nearest the hole
must be played hrst. it a stymie ex
ists and the balls lie within a put
ter's length of each other, the ball
farthest from the hole must be lifted
on request until the nearer ball has
been played and then replaced in its
previous lie. Penalties for violation:
Loss of hole in match play: two
strokes in medal play.
"Under no circumstances, except as
above, shall a ball on the putting
green be lifted. Players ,in all rounds
must observe this rule and ignorance
of it will not be accepted as an ex
cuse for its breach."
