GRdelaide Keimerly Ella Fleishman, ASS'T EDITOR- I Firsf Line Trench -Depends on Strength Of the Bread Line "Over the top!" this must be the battTecry in the "kitchen of every American home today, as well as the battlecry on the fields of Europe. It means that the time of talking about food winning this war and how we must save it, is past. "Over the topi" Get into the real fight of saving food! Face the enemy, Starvation, that is invading the coun tries of our associates in' this war, despite the efforts of their brave wo men to check its advance. These women have put up a splen did, fight. They knew that their men were putting all their strength into beating back tly enemy and they, their wives, sisters, mothers' and sweethearts, must face the great struggle against starvation alone. Women whose nearest approach -to farm labor before the war was to train their rose vines to grow over their porches and pick fresh sweet peas to their drawing room tables are doing the heavy work of a farm i laborer today. They are plowing, raising crops, feedingi and tending live stock, keeping cattle barns and farm machinery in repair. Run Food Factories. Besides the farming, the women. are practically running the food tzci tories, keeping them going day and night as long they can obtain the raw food products with which to work,. Down to the last child these peo ple have learned something that very few people here in America hav as yet learned. It is this: the strength of the first line trench depends on the strength of the bread line. As long . as the women can hold the bread line under the shock of war, the men can hold the trenches. When the wo men fail, the men fail. In their hour of need, the women of Europe are calling to you, women of America. - "Over the top!" Into fight with us against hunger!" If we are to help them, we must save food as never before. Where we ' have had one wheatless day in our wfek, we must put two in now or better still three or four! We must remember that every ounce of food saved is just that much food sent to our soldiers and the allies. Government faay Take Platinum Jewelry The Women's National League for the Conservation of ' Platinum is warning women to prepare for a fed eral order commandeering rings, tiaras, bracelets, mesttbags and other articles of jewelry which have plat inum in them. "As our normal consumption of platinum per annum is 165,000 ounces of fine metal," writes Mrs. Ellwood B. Spea of Cambridge, Mass., to the division on women's war work com mittee on public information, "and we have in sight for our war program 21,000 ounces of crude metal, I think it possible that later the government, will have to call for tiaras, meshbags, bracelets, etc. If so, this league will i j i i i. i . ,, qo -everyming u can xo ncip. Women college executites, profes sors of science and wive9 of scien tists form the majority of the mem bership of the council of the organiza tion, which was organized to inform v women of the platinum shortage and the need of this metal to carry on the , war. Buy Larger Birds Because food-saving throws a heavy burden of consumption upon poultry products, the Department of Agriculture advises the public to stop buying small broilers and squab chickens weighing a pound or less, as such birds if kept alive several ' weeks longer and systematically fed in crates could be . brought "up to about 3 pounds by the feeding of buttermilk, sour milk, skimymilk, low grade grains, and similar semi-waste food by-productsV Three pounds is set as the minimum weight for poul try purchased by people who desire to aid in true food conservation. For A stewing, old birds weighing up to S'ive or six pounds are economical, A new print is called gros d'Afrique and is being featured by Paquin. Our trademark tells the story of the purity, wholesomeness and flavor of this delicious nut butter, t It Is made right from the oil of the meat of cocoanut combined with peanut oil, milk and salt not "a particle of any other in gredient, preservative or animal fat. For a combination of practical economy and genuine goodness it can't be beaten. It coats fully a third less thin creamery butter Pastes just as good (many users say better) just as high in food value and just as digestible. Serve It with every meal and usd it in cooking. - V. E.

DAUGHTERS OF AMERICAN REVOLUTION DO RED CROSS WORK IN ARMY BUILDING If being in the proper atmosphere has anything to do with results, Daughters of the American Revolu tion Red Cross auxiliary j owes its success to the fact that the women work in the army building., With ' traditionary gallantry, army men have surrounded the "Daugh ters" with every comfort. The latest bit of co-operation is the establish ment of the coziest little tea room and kitchenette where the industrious ones can have luncheon without even taking off their white veils and aprons. ' ! As the noon day whistles blow, the gauze and muslin is abandoned for the tea kettle and the sandwiches. One hour is allotted for the noonday meal. The tea room's opening is almost co-incident with the first anniversary of the workers. Just about a year ago J. J. O'Conner, head of the cen tral division of the Red Cross, sent two S. O. S. messages to the Daugh ters of the American Revolution, ad vising them to begin at once on war relief work. 1 ' Mrs. Walter Selby was chosen chairman. She immediately organized the first independent Red Cross auxiliary in Omaha. They began daily work in two small rooms. To day they are established in a room large enough to accommodate 400 women and Jiave to their credit 35, 000 surgical supplies and hospital garments. ' Perhaps such a splendid record is in a measure due to the inspiring talks which the army men frequently give to the assembled workers. The interest in. these war relief workers is a personal mater with the officers, a Mis, M i r l Youll circle if 13th and Leavenworth Sts Schoenhofen Company Chicago Go o d Judgmeni number of them have wives and daughters who are enrolled here. When Colonel Grant urges the bandage makers to further endeavor he is addressing his wife and three daughters, ' the Misses Dorothy, Helen and Mary Grant. The wives of both Major Frith and Captain Faringly are included among the army women who devote many hours at this Red Cross center. Any woman is welcome whether she can point to distinguished warrior an cestors or not. "Willingness to wojk is the only requisite," said Mrs. Selby. "There is no fee charged as there was in the beginning of our work." The following Daughters of the American Revolution members act as chairmen: Monday, Mesdames J. J. Stubbs and.R. C. Hoyt; Tues day, Mesdames Walter Selby, C. E. Hall and E. F. Pope; Wednesday, Mesdames C. E. Hall, Lynn Kilgore. Vincent Hascall; Thursday, Walter D. Williams, J. Von W. Schulte, W. I. Walker, and Friday, Mrs. Walter Selby. x 7 Women of the Morris apartments Red Cross auxiliary cleared $1J5 by a card party and dance they gave in. the hotel Saturday night. The proceeds wil! be used to buy a sewing machine and supplies to carry on Red Cross work. The dance was held in the lobby; cards in the smoking room and punch was served in the Chine room, besides which the women sold home made candy. Mrs. A. J. Cockle and Mrs. A. J. Hasson had the affair in charge. Among the newest Red Cross aux iliaries are the Benson High school auxiliary, j Miss Mary McNamara, chairman; Central Park Congrega tional church, Mrs. George Lorenz, chairman; Field school, Miss Jeanette Newlean, chairman; Albright, Mrs. J. M. McCarthy, chairman; Sunny Hour, Mrs. J. W. Nicholson, chairman. At the Thursday night meeting of the Business W'oman's auxiliary to the Red Cross, at the Young Wo men's Christian association, 65 work ers were present and 1,015 gauze ban dages were made. J. R. Pullis, recently returned from the front, spoke to the women on the work of the Red Cross in France. Verdigre is the first town to an nounce that a shipment of the work done by the junior Red Cross is ready. The children have completed 13 sweaters", five pairs of wreslets, four pairs of scks and 28 wash cloths. . ' Aj school for teachers who are tak ing up junior Red Cross work in the schools has been instituted at Colum bus by County Superintendent Fred S. Lecron.

Use popcorn. Give candy a rest. Fopcorn belongs to the romantic period of the open fire and the home made Christmas of our Pilgrim fath ers. The United States food adminis tration has asked us ,to save sugar. Of course we will, and one of the ways we can do it is by eating less candy. Popcorn makes an adequate substitute. The number of people who serve it is growing less and less. Yet a dish of hot buttered or candied popcorn is invariably greeted with enthusiasm. Try it the next time your friends drop in for the evening. For 10 cents a package of popcorn can be bought which will go further than three pounds of candy. Popcorn can be served with milk as a supper dish and never fails to call forth ap plause. The parched kernels when ground like coffee make a very good breakfast food with cream or top milk. In preparing buttered popcorn, re member that a very little butter goes a long way. Have you tried sugared popcorn? A syrup is made, by boiling together two teacups of sugar and one teacup of water. Boil until the syrup strings. Then pour over six quarts of freshly pooped corn and stir well. Have you forgotten the delicious old fashioned popcorn ball? This is the way they are made: Si pints syrup (mo-4 tablespoon butter lansos or mapU). 1 taaapoon vinegar. I cup sugar. Cook until the syrup hardens when dropped into cold water. Remove to back of stove and add one-half tea spoonful of soda dissolved in a table spoon of hot water and then pour the hot syrup over four quarts ot freshly popped corn, stirring till each kernel is well coated, when it can be molded into balls or into any desired form. Popcorn can be colored by dipping into beet juice or any fruit juice. To polish grained wood, soak a flannel in a little linseed oil, rub the wood well, then polish with a dry soft cloth.

There is a great ditterence between foods, ac cording to their actual food value in relation to cost. Many foods with a fow price per pound are so defi cient in nutritive properties as to be really expensive. Puritan Hams and Bacon are foods with high caloric content. There is comparatively little waste in them practically no waste at all in their preparation. Ask your dealer for PURITAN. 'The Taste Tells" THE CUDAHY PACKING COMPANY If your handle Wilhelmina of Holland Assailed by Subjects As a War Profiteer aiEEX WXVHBtrtlftA Some of the beloved subjects of Oueen Wilhelmina of Holland are grumbling at the immense profits out of the war the queen is credited with making. These profits come partly from the sale, at quadrupled prices, of timber from the royal forests, and from the queen's share in several steamship lines, her subjects declare. The (Dutch, being a notably thrifty folk, are not grumbling so much at the royal profits as over the alleged fact that her royal highness pays no income tax.
