' Germans Need Settlement
Trotzky was asked what hope he
himself had. of a general acceptable
peace. He replied that it was difficult
to say because the Germans had not
yet been offered a chance to make
such a peace, but he was sure the

Germans were unable to remove
troops from the eastern front in

them one at a time and the men
knowing where they were being sent,
jump from trains in attempts to es
cape. He reiterated the story that
25,000 German troops had deserted in
the Kovno district, adding that the
Germans Cannot get their own men to
attack the deserters and are trying to
reduce them by starvation.
Asked what tems he actually hoped
to -get, Trotzky refused to reply, and
said laughingly: "If we were really
logical we would declare war on
England now for the sake of India.
Egypt and Ireland.
The Daily News correspondent pro
tested that Great Britain made noth
ing out of India, to which Trotzky
replied: "Then give up being so al
truistic. You English are the most
chauvinist nation on the earth with
out knowing it."

Hair Often Ruined
By Washing With Soap
Soap should be used very carefully
if you want to keep your hair looking
its best. Most soaps and prepared
shampoos contain too much alkali.
This dries the scalp, makes the hair
brittle, and ruins it
The best thing for steady use is just
ordinary mulsified cocoanutoil (which
is pure and greaseless),and is better
than the most expensive soap or any
thing else you can use.
One or two teaspoonfuls will cleanse
the hair and scalp thoroughly. Simply
moisten the "hair with water and rub
rt in. It makes an abundance of rich,
creamy lather, which rinses out eas
ily, removing every particle of dust,
dirt, dandruff and excessive oil. The
hair dries quickly and evenly, and it
leaves the scalp soft, and fre hair
fine and silky, bright, lustrous, fluffy
and easy to manage.
You can get mulsified cocoanut oil
at any pharmacy, it's very cheap, and
a few ounces will supply every mem
ber of the family for months. Adv.
