Save Your Appetites
For Speedway Races
Don t eat a bite or huv a rlpar
fore you go out to the speedway for
me automoDiie races on the 1-ourth
of July," say Mrs. Howard Baldrige
and the fiftv or more women snrf oirlc
who are working hard as her assist
ants in getting the Red Cross con
cessions ready for that occasion. With
the aid of Mogy Bernstein and Bert
Le Bron, who have proved themselves
model assistants, the women are pre
paring the booths for the sale of ice
cream, sandwiches, cigars and chewing
Three booths have been construct
ed, one inside the auto pit and two
outside, where societv eirls with
chaperon for each ten will vend the
eatables. Mrs. Charles T. Kountze
has charge of the booth inside the
auto circle. From this booth and
the others the groups of seven or
ten girls will work among the crowds
selling their wares for the benefit of
the Red Cross. That is why they are
asking their friends and acquaintances
to eat nothing at all before thev sro,
so that they can buy more from the
Red Cross booths when they get
there. Any man who deliberately
buys his cigars betore he goes to the
speedway the woman have promised
to blackball.
NEW PpLICE MACHINE GUN Here U .hown a new type

is believed, prove a valuable acquisition to the department's
H. C. L. Not Due to Freight
Rates, Says Rail Official
Charles J. Lane, general freight
agent of the Union Pacific, has fig
ured out that railroad freight rates
cut but little figure in the matter of
the high cost of living.
As an illustration of his contention
that the freight rate is one, of the
minor items in the cost of living, he
cites the fact that the rate on a
pound of beef, live weight, from North
Platte, into Omaha, is but one-sixth
of a cent a pound. The haul is 281
Taking up the freight that is ap
plied in connection with wheat that
eventually finds its way into bread,
Mr. Lane in using Big Springs, Neb.,
as a basis for his argument, says that
the rate per bushel into Omaha, a
distance of 350 miles, is .092 cents per
bushel. One bushel of wheat, ground
into flour, Mr. Lane says will make
sixty-five 10-cent loaves of bread. The
freight on enough flour to make one
of these loaves, Mr. Lane figures
would amount to one-seventh of a
cent. He. uses other illustrations,
showing that the flour rate from
Seattle, Wash., 2,000 miles, amounts
to but two-fifths of a cent for enough
to make a 10-cent loaf of bread.

On Food Conservation
Seven hundred and fifty-three min

up by the Bell Telephone company in

sermons, Sunday, July 1, on the con

ministrator, who took this quick and
practical way of reaching all the min
isters in the United States.
Out of the 753 ministers called, onlv
eighty-five declined to preach the ser
mon, most of them declining on the

Officer Wheelex Hears Noise in
auto and finds Drivers
of Machine Hidden in
the Bushes.
Officer Wheeler, better known as
the chief of police of Dundee, had
his attention attracted to an automo-1
bile standing near the park in Dundee
at 7 yesterday morning by the cack
ling of hens. On investigating he
found the occupants of the automo
bile hidden under bushes growing in
the park. Two men and two women
were in the parlv. The men were ar
rested, but the wome,' escaped while
the men were being secured.
When brought to the station the I
men gave as their names Frank Hart,

found in the rooms they occupy at

Tell Different Stories.
When questioned as to their where
abouts all told different stories. Later
they would admit that thev had been
lying and tell another. John Dunn,
acting captain ot detectives, said: I
will admit that they are all lying, but
we can do nothing with them until
we trace the automobile they were
driving, which l believe to be stolen.
The fact that they have a Kansas and
Nebraska license number both looks
bad. Three dozen and eight chick
ens were found in the automobile.
and if anybody had chickens stolen
last night I wish they would come
and identity them.
AH, at one time, asserted that they

street. Wichita. Aan.. two weeks aeo.
Dunlap told that he had sent his wife
to Kansas three days ago. The story
they told most consistently was that
they left here any time between 9
o clock in the morning and 11 o clock
last night and went to Springfield,
where they purchased the chickens.
The engine, they say, stopped in Dun
dee and they went into the park to
wait for it to cool. "I will gladly
give a cigaret as a reward to anyone
who can tell what they were doing
