EASY TO SAVE FOOD
IF ALL TAKE PART
SxIe Slice of Bread Each Da;
for Person-for Year Means
Thousands oT Bushels of
Wheat, Says Wattles.
THE BEE: OMAHA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2G. 1917.
ARMY WANTS FOUR
Two Who Have Been at Work
Have Made Success and
More Will Be Given
If every man, woman and child m
Nebraska would save one slice of
white bread every day for one year,
415,000 bushels of wheat would be
conserved to feed our army and the
allies. The whole United States
would have 380.000,000 bushels of
wheat," Gurdon W, Wattles, federal
food administrator, told delegates to
the Nebraska Federation of Women's
clubs at Wednesday evening's session
of the convention at the Fontenelle.
"The world is short 500,000,00ft bush
els of food products."
"If thia war is a long-drawn-out
one, food wilt be more valuable than
ammunition in deciding the victor,"
Mr. Wattles emphasized. "Eat things
-that can't be sent abroad. Save food.
Don't waste any.
"We need a revival of patriotism
and self-sacrifice," said Mr. Wattles.
"This country has grown too care
less of its obligations."
Prof. C W. Pugsley of ihe depart
ment of agricultural extension, jUni
versity of Nebraska, also urged food
Ex-Governor C. H. Aldrkh of Lin
coln made a patriotic address. "Buy
Liberty bonds," he urged. They are
the mi of munitions in which to
'invest in order that democracy shall
live. Germany will go down to de
feat because it does not recognize the
rights of democracy. Might does not
make right. Democracy stands for
the individual. Autocracy to crush
' The Nebraska Federation bought
$3,100 worth of Liberty bonds Wed
nesday. Mrs. J. N. Paul, state presi
dent, bought $1,000; Mrs. W. E.
Barkley, state suffrage presid -t,
$1,000; and $350 was purchased for
the endowment fund. The rest was
subscribed by members.
Miss Hanna to Dance.

sic, who was to take part in the pro
gram, has suffered a nervous break
down, according tt a telegram re
ceived by Mrs. John Haarmann.

For Itching Torture
Thete is one remedy that seldom fails
to stop itching torture and relieve skin
irritation and that makes the skin soft,
clear and healthy.
Any druggist can supply you with
zemo, which generally overcomes all
Bfcm diseases. Acne, eczema, itch, pirn-
pies, rashes, blackheads, in most cases
live way to zemo. Frequently, minor
blemishes disappear overnight Itching
usually stops instantly. Zemo is a safe,
intiseptic liquid, clean, easy to use and
iependable. It costs only 35c; an extra
large bottle, $1.00. It will not stain, is
lot greasy or sticky and is positively
lafe for tender, sensitive skins.

Four more real salesmen are wanted
by the recruiting office in the army
building to sell goods for Uncle Sam.
The "goods" include new khaki
uniforms and guns, but they will be
given free with a blessing to the
young men the salesmen pcrsuad to
enlist in the army.
Last week Major Frith sent out a
call for salesmen to enlist and give
their services in recruiting, at a sal
ary of $100 a month, besides clothing
and medical attendance. A large num
ber applied and the two selected
have done such good work that it
has been decided to take in four more.
Thomas Crawford of South Omaha
was one of the two selected last week
and already he has brought in a
number of volunteers.
Changes at Supply Depot.
A general upheaval is going on at
the Omaha supply depot. New offi
cers are being brought in and ones
who thought themselves stationary
are being sent anywhere the govern
ment considers them most needed.
Captain Philip Cantlon, supply of
ficer, has been ordered to Camp Jo
seph E. Johnson, near Jacksonville,
Fla., where he will be instructor in
the training camp. His place will be
taken by Captain Farnby, who has
been in charge of the shipping de
partment at the depot.
Major Walter Stern of the officers
reserve will come from Milwaukee to
take the place vacated by Captain
Farnby at the depot. Major Stern is
a wealthy flour manufacturer of Mil
waukee who has given up his business
to place his services at the disposal
of the government during the war.
As a result of a talk by Major Ma
her of the Omaha supply depot a
few days ago, the Van Sant School
of Business subscribed $10,000 worth
of Liberty bonds. Of these the teach
ers subscribed $1,000, the pupils $4,500.
and from subscriptions obtained by
the pupils ?4,5UU more came in. The
night school pupils alone subscribed
$1,100 to the cause.
Major Maher also addressed the
Boyles Business college, of which he
is a former pupil. The night school
there put its money together, bought
$450 of bonds and donated them to
the Red Cross.
Captain Adam Lephart is an
other new officer assigned to the
Omaha supply depot. He will arrive
some time this week.
Girl Drinks Poison
When Letters From
Man Are Withheld
Anna Wilczsky, 18 years old, tried
to solve her life problem yester
day by drinking carbolic acid. The
empty phial was found on the
dresser in her room at the home of
Mrs. C. L. Williams, a practical nurse,
who conducts a private hospital at
151? South Twenty-sixth street.
Anna is a ward of the juvenile
court and was taken from her par
ents three years ago following their
estrangement. Since that time she
has been employed as maid at the
Last spring, according to Mrs. Wil
liams, a repair man who came to the
home met Anna and has since been
corresponding with her. The man
is a total stranger to the girl, says
Mrs. Williams, and because his let
ters have been withheld from her, she
procured the carbolic acid and

Says the Labor Unions May
Resort to Anything Not
Violation of Law, Or
Bights of Others.
Deputy Attorney General Alfred C
Munger, attorney in the Omaha labor
union injunction cases, makes the fol
lowing statement in reference to
Judge Leslies decision:
"There seems to have been some
misapprehension as to the meaning
of Judge Leslie s decision in the labor
injunction case. It has beeu assumed
by some, and given some publicity,
that this opinion reversed a former
opinion of the district court declaring
so-called peacetul picketing to be
"This is not the case. The present
opinion states that labor unions, in
attempting to persuade nonunion men
to leave their work, may 'resort to
anything that is not in violation of
law or the lawful rights of others.'
The Princess theater case decided
that so-called 'peaceful picketing,'
when it constitutes intimidation by
mere numbers, even though there be
no actual violence or oral threats, is
unlawful. Under this decision there
is the same limitation upon extremes
of 'peaceful picketing' that was estab
lished in the Princess theater case.
"This statement is made in order to
avoid any misunderstanding on the
part of union members, as it is the in
tention of this office to enforce the
law s interpreted in these decisions."

You Can't Brush Or
Wash Out Dandruff
The only sure way to get rid of
dandruff is to dissolve it, then you
destroy it entirely. To do this, get
about four ounces of ordinary liquid
arvon; apply it at night when retir
ing; use enough to moisten the scalp
and rub it in gently with the finger
Do thia tonight, and by morning,
most if not all of your dandruff will
be gone, and three or tour more ap
plications will completely dissolve and
entirely destroy every single sign and
trace of it, no matter how much
dandruff you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop at
once, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and
look and feel a hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon at any
drug store. It is inexpensive and
never fails to do the work. Adv.
