An adequate menu for a family of five for one day will be compared with an excessive menu. Only $1,15 is necessary for the one, the other costs $4.60.

Exhibits at Food Congress Teach Practical Lessons On Nation's War Crisis Needs One of the interesting features of the conservation congress is the long line of exhibits on the second floor. First at the head of the stairs comes the Boy Scouts. Why should the Boy scouts take Dart in a conservation coneress?" was asked of Scout Master English. See our banner; answered the scout master. "Every scout feeds a soldier." "But how? Soldiers can t eat Bov Scouts, can theyr" "Right down to brass tacks the 700 Boy Scouts of Omaha-have planted 250 back yard gardens, one six-acre garden, half a dozen two-acre tracts and are working a number of gardens for-others. We are going to show the delegates from out in the state what scout work will do tor the boys and get them to give the system a try-out .in their own towns and in their own gardens." the next booth is occupied bv the department of agronomy of the Uni versity of Nebraska. What s it for and what Is it? was asked the official spieler. "Why all the dirt? What's agronomy, any how?" 'The dirt, mv son. is srood Nebras ka soil. Every county in the state is represented by a' little box of dirt. And there's a man with the exhibit that will tell you, from the dirt, just what grains any particular county should grow. He will tell you not only the grain, but the particular va riety of grain that will grow best in that county. By following his direc tions, deducted trom chemical analy sis of the soil the farmers can pro duce their largest crops,' make the most money ana rurnisn me most foodstuffs to the people in other lines of business." Ttiii nnt ethihit i that ni the medical department of the University of Nebraska, under Dr. Cutter. There's the doctor himself. He will show you lust how the chemical an alysis of the dirt was made and why certain soils produce certain- grains. He knows more about dirt in general-" The pure food and pure seed ex Head of Farm Congress Says High School Boys Are Omaha High school bovs. after all.' are to have their inning on Nebraska farms. Contrary to the statement made last week that high school boys were not wanted on the farms this year because their muscles were soft, they are badly needed and will be the salvation of the farmers, according to O, G, Smith of Kearney. Mr. Smith is president of the Ne braska Farmers' congress and is chairman of the executive committee of the big conservation congress which opens at the Auditorium this evening. He is also k member of the "policy" .committee, which is in control of the big meeting. "It was an awful mistake to say that high school boys cannot be used on the farms," said Mr. Smith. 'The boys will prove the salvation of the corn crop. Farmers do not want boys ThbttnaturtdftlIowin th world will on hit tm per if yon piuh him too hard. An' tvtn good Bur hy tobacco low a lot of iUfnm'htmtif you nththtcurin'. hibit It is in charge of a woman' who knows her business, she evill teach you what foods to purchase and what are expensive, regardless of the prices you pay. And she will tell you about some clovcrseed that is so badly adulterated that while the farmer thinks he is paying $17.50 a bushel, he is really paying $54. There's a lot of canned goods that have gone to the bad. She will tell you how it was done and why it spoiled." "Here's an exhibit of packing house products. It's not an advertisement of the particular packer that furnished the goods. It's an educational exhibit. "Here's the dairy exhibit. Do you know that three-fourths of the milk is thrown away? And the milk men are getting ready to raise the prices again. They feed good corn and good alfalfa hay to their cattle and then throw away more than half of the products. "One of the questions, this country will have to meet is the shortage in the milk supply. This little exhibit will teach you now every drop of the milk, including the water, can be put to use., Study it and you can sell milk a whole lot cheaper and make a whole lot more money than you can under the present wasteful system. "And here's the co-operative em ployment bureau's booth. It's a mix ture of frderal, state, county and city affairs. , It takes orders from farmers for help and it finds jobs for those who want to go to the farms. But when you attempt to register for a "job" you've got to show that you are realty competent. You can't get a job as a milkman unless you can really milk a cow. No sluffers can get by. ; "The next is the Nebraska univer. sitv corn bulletins. It show how the information for the bulletins is gath ered and how they prove themselves of most use to the farmers and others who will make use of them. 'The Red Cross is the last in the line. Everybody knows the Red Cross. It's wonderful. " "Enough said. So much for the ex hibits." Needed On Farms who will have to be conscripted, but they do want those who will come willingly. "By the way, there has never been a time in Nebraska when the soil was in better condition than now nor when corn prospects were so good. Wheat (what little there is left), oats and the small grain plants are up high enough to shade the ground and prevent 'the rapid evaporation of the rain that has just fallen. "Now for the '. igh school boys again. Just as soon as the sun shines on this wet ground the weeds are going to simply jump. And some body s got to keep them down. ., ."Organize the high school boys Of the state into one great weed brigade and every mother's son of them will make hia weight thousand times over in corn this year." Father Time and Mother Nature grew the tobacco, I guess they cure it oest." A PIPE load of VELVET eives you Jl every last bit of enjoyment that there is in a pipe. VELVET'S two years' ageing in wooden hogs heads brines out the last bit of mildness, mellowness and taste that is naturally in Kentucky's best Burley tobacco. That two years' ageing is Nature's own method. No shortcut processes can even touch it And VELVET will prove this to you. , SAYS COUNTY AGENT SOLYES FARM LABOR Norfolk Commercial Club Be gards Hir" as Link Be tween Field and Worker. The Norfolk (Neb.) Commercial club thinks it has solved the i':iru la bor problem, so far as Madison coun ty is concerned, according to S. H. McClary, secretary of the club, who is in Omaha to explain the Norfolk plan to the State Conservation congress. Madison county supports a ;ounty agent, who is in close touch with the farmers and their labor wants. The county agent lists the labor needs of the farmers and turns the list to the Commercial club. The Commercial club, in turn, lists all transient and resident labor in the town. In this way the farmer and laborers are brought together. The Commercial club of Norfolk is supplying laborers to many farmers in Madison county. "We anticipate no labor shortage in Madison county until harvest," said Secretary McClary. "The farmers re alize the labor situation and are mak ing their plans accordingly." Each merchant and clerk in Norfolk has volunteered to give two days' work each week during harvest. The names and ability of these men have been listed with the Commercial club. When a farmer 'phones the Commer cial club that he wants two farm hands the club sends five merchants or clerks. The plan considers that five mer chants and clerks are equal to two farm hands. Of these five persons, one at least is a retired farmer. In this way the farmer loses no time in structing the men from town as to how to do the work. The five men operate' in a crew under the direction of the retired farmer. Forty men in Norfolk have volun teered the use of their autos to take these town laborers to the farm. They are notified by the club and take the men to work, returning for them in the evening. The city clerks are paid at regular rates. ' "We do not expect to serve all of Madison county in this way," said Mr. McClary. "We are operating within a ten-mile radius of town." , The plan is to be presented to the committee on labor problems of the state conference for discusssion. Six Million British ' ' Women Will Be Given Vote London, May 22. (4:52 P. M.) In moving the second reading of the franchise reform bill today in the House of Commons, Sir George Cave, the home secretary, said he estimated the number of men voters that would be added by the bill to the present 8.357.000 was about 2.000.000. while the extension of the franchise to women would add to the register about 6,000,000 voters of whom 5,000, 000 would- acquire the franchise as married women. ! Sir George explained that a wom an voter must be entitled to register as a local government elector or her husband must be entitled to vote or she must be a university voter. - Other reforms, he stated, included the payment by the government of the returning officers' expenses, a re duction of the scale of expenses, per mitted to candidates and the prohibi tion of expenditures by unauthorized bodies to secure the return of a can didate. . ' PAPER MAIL RATE IS CENTAND HALF House Committee Agrees to a Compromise Based on the Zone System; Debate is Continued. Washington, lty 22. A x com promise on the proposed second class mail tax so as to make it from 1J4 cents per pound in the first parcels post zone to 8 cents in the eighth zone was agreed upon today by the house ways and means committee. Receipts from educational enter tainments were excluded by the house from the proposed 10 per cent amuse ment tax by a vote of 114 to 1, Repre sentative Moore of Pennsylvania op posing. He insisted that it was unfair that William J. Bryan should receive from $200 to $750 a night for "educational" entertainments while the government got nothing from them. No other changes were made in the amusement tax situation. All amuse ment places will pay a 10 per cent tax on their cash receipts and each person -dmitted free must pay 5 cents. A tax I cent on each ticket sold to a child under 12 years, unless the maximum admission . fee . is 5 cents, would be charred. . Club members would , pay JO per cent of their club dues, tntertain n,nla far thi, hrhelit of relicious or charitable organizations would be ex empt trom taxation. N The war stamp tax section, eonsiu rrtA next, was amended so as to ex empt building and loan associations operated for the sole benefit of their members. Ways and Means Committee More Friendly to Newspapers (From a Staff .Correspondent.) Washington, May 21. (Special Tel eaTam. Reoresentative Sloan is ex ceedingly. hopeful that the. second class postage matter, as it applies to newspapers, win De adjusted in a man' ner fairlv satisfactory to the publish' ers. During the conference of the wavs and means committee yesterday and on Saturday Chairman Kitchin in timated he might accept Sloan's prop osition to make the first zone cents, the second and third zones 2 cents, the fourth zone 3 cents, the re maining zones 4 cents, which is a de cided concession to the disseminators of news. Chairman Moon of the committee on postoffices and postroads has also sutreested concessions which might be acceptable to the owners of newspa pers. His nrooosition is to charge as now I cent to transport newspapers and periodicals entitled to the pound rate, but charging- on the advertising con tained in said newspapers and period icals the! rate now charged by parcel post, dividing the country into adver tising zones the same as parcel post zones. v In any event it is apparent that con gress is getting a knowledge of the second class postage matter that it has not possessed heretofore, and a more friendly feeling is being shown toward one of the great industries of the country.
