"Thi women of the kitchens of
America waste $700,000,000 worth of
food products in a year, according to
expert statisticians: and tne larmers
of the land allow $1,000,000,000 worth
of manure ioygo to waste annually,"
said Carl S. Vrooman, assistant sec
retary of agriculture, in his address
at the opening of the Nebraska Food
Conservation conference at tne
Omaha Auditorium last nigljt.
Chancellor Samuel Avery of the
University of Nebraska presided.
' Governor Neville stated the purpose
of the conference, and declared he
hoped definite committees would be
appointed to furnish ready sources
of information at all times for the
State Defense Cduncil.
Mayor Dahlman welcomed the
delegates to Omaha and announced
that the purpose of the conference
is to develop the brain, energy and
thought of the people of Nebraska
to help win the great war in the
cause of world democracy.
Right to Regulate Prices. -
George Coupland, member of the
executive committee of the State
Council for Defense, declared it is
ethically just and economically
proven proper to regulate tne pricesJ
of food products, and urged that the
federal government do this as soon
as possible to get price control out
ot the nanus ot manipulators ana
speculators. V. J. Taylor of Jfcrna,
MK h,nir mpmhcr nf ihp legis
lature and grain man, held the high
price of foods to be the natural re
sult of the movement from thearms
to the cities and declared the high
price of foods is not the fault of
anvthing the fanner has done.
More than 3,500 people, a majority
of them delegates to the conference,
heard the speeches. Secretary Vroo
man was held for the last number on
the program. Though it was after 10
o'clock when he began, the crowd sat
motionless throughout the address of
this government official, who brought
a serious, straightforward message
When he had disensesd waste, the
lessons England and France have
learned, the need for soldiers and
money to buy the $7,000,000,000 "LibJ
erty" loan bonds, he concluded by
"Be a Man."
"If you haven't done anything yet;
if you haven't enlisted, or bought a
bond, or done anything else for the
cause, then go home tonight, throw
vourself on your knees and pray AU
mighty God to give you strength tj
get up in the morning and be a man."
Earlier in his talk he reviewed the
troubles of the allies and the lessons
they learned of the need of food, the
need of quantities of ammunition, the
need of training fighting men, and the
gradual readjustment necessary in
dustrially for two years to make Eng
land an effective fighting machine.
"And then," he said, "when it had
done all this, she came face to face
with the great world-old, primeval(
problem, the problem of mankind to
.feed itself. Thus this became a food
war, with famine fighting on every
battle front. We hardly realize yet
what this war means to us.

' "When we find it necessary to put
5,000,000 more men into the trenches,
as we will if Russia should go to
pieces, then we will begin to realize
the seriousness of the situation,
"We cannot send an army of any
consequence over there in. less than
nme months. We cannot get a real
big army equipped and trained in less
than a year. We are going to send
one division, to be sure, for moral ef
fect, but there it will end.
"But when we decided to make the
$7,000,000,000 loan, we served notice
on mankind that we had underwritten

thing he can do. He can farm a little'

Much Food Wasted.
"It extends fronj the farmer right
through all classes. We talk about it
and grow eloquent in denounc
ing it at times, but deep down
we have a sneaking pride in our
wasting what others need. There are
$700,000,000 worth of food products
wasted in the American kitchens; and
the farmers waste $1,000,000,000 worth
of barnyard manure in a year.
"The average American wants not
only enough to eat on his table, but
he wants enough to bathe in. He
likes to look at it. In times of peace
this is bad enough, for there are
always some in the world who are
hungry, but in times like these, such
waste is despicable and disloyal.

the rest is made into food for ani

Prof. Pugsley Says State is Be
ing Praised for the Way
it is Meeting War
' High praise for Nebraska's initial
moves in meeting problems arising
from the war was expressed by Prof.
C. W.' Pugsley, director of the agri
cultural extension service of the Uni
versity of Nebraska. He has just re
turned from a week's visit to Wash
ington, D. C, to take up matters re
lating to regular extension work and
to the war emergency.
"I am proud of the way Nebraska
and other middle west states are
iroing at things," declared Prof. Pugs
ley. "They haven't said much, but
they are certainly making a bigger
showing than eastern states. This is
true of farm and town folks, an 1
especially in the utilization of back
yards and vacant lots."
Among other things, Prof. Pugsley
presented to the agricultural commit
tee and to members of congress the
views of Nebraska farmers on the
revenue and food bills. These opin
ions were formulated at a conference
of representatives of farmers' organ
izations in the state, called by Prof.
Pugsley shortly before his departure
Approve Farmers' Views.
"The farmers of Nebraska' are
anxious to do their ,part in meeting
the expense of the war. as well as
in increasing food production," said
he. ''They feel (as expressed by their
representatives at this conference),
that it may be necessary.if the war
continues long, to fix maximum and
minimum prices not only of th
things the farmer sells, but of the

No class of people devotes as much
time to beauty as do actresses, and no
class must be more careful to retain
and develop their charms. Inquiry

care they find it dangerous to sham

The majority say that to have the best
hair wash and scalp stimulator at ,a
cost of about three cents, one need
only get a package of canthrox from
your druggist, dissolve a teaspoonful
in a cup of hot water and your shamr

much heavier than it is. Its lustre
and softness will also delight you,
while the stimulated scalp gains the
health which insures hair growth.

Soap should be used very carefully

One or two teaspoonfuli will
