Orders That Six Pounds Per
Month May Be Sold to
it is absolutely necessary 10 re
duce the consumption of wheat flour
to six pounds per person per month."
In no instance shall more than this
amount for each member of the house
hold be sold by any retailer or miller
to the head of any family for the use
of his household.
"All nills having food administra
tion flour contracts must proceed to
fill them immediately, regardless of
allfothcr demands for their products.
running exclusively upon government
business until uncompleted contracts
Shall be filled."
The foregoing order was issued by
Gurdon W. Wattles, federal food ad
ministrator for Nebraska before he
left on a brief coast try.
Mills are becoming too greatly in
arrears in their shipments of flour
under government contract and the
order is to expedite the movement of
flour. Enforcement of the order is
centered in the southwestern 'milling
division, with offices in Kansas City.
New Rules in Line.
"This order only emphasizes the
necessity Tor flour productions," said
Mr. Wattles. "The new wheat con
servation rules and regulations are in
line with this order. While these
rules may seem drastic and annoying,
to" some, yet they ask 'very little.
"We hiive sent our young men
across the water to fight for us and
to help our associates in the war. Are
we going to send thetn the food that
is necessary that they may maintain
health and put up their greatest fight
for democracy? Or are we going to
eat this flour ourselves? v
"The answer is with us. We are
going to send the flour acros, even
if we have to go without ourselves.
, "Today our associates are putting
up the greatest straggle in the history
of the world for an ideal the rights
to live under democratic form of gov
ernment. It would be the greatest
crime in history if we failed to provide
the necessities to successfully wage
this battler Food .is the prime
necessity,. even more important than
munitions. ' ' (
Sacrifice Is Slight. ,
"What is the sacrifice we are asked
to make in comparison with the sacri
fices that have been made for years
by our associates? So when we are
asked to limit our consumption of
wheat, we are asked to contribute a
very small part of '-'hat, those who
ire fighting for us art giving."
In bulletin to county food ad
ministrators, Mr. Wattles permits a
slight modification of the substitute
order. Permission is given to millers
and retailers fo sell wheat flour with
out substitutes to consumers, who
grind their own corn meal, or pres
entation of a writen statement that
purchaser has on hand corn meal to
the amount of the flour he desires to
purchase and will Mise it for human
food at the same time and during the
period that flour is used.
In all cases the statements must be
signed by the county food adminis
tatqr or his Iqcal representative. .

"Patriotic" Crap Game Ends
In Grief for Two Battlers

game Saturday afternoon, when they

Twenty-fifth street, at the home of the
former. They surprised the men just
as Carack shouted, "come seven I"
In police court Monday morning it
developed from the men's testimony
that Malaneck was initiating Carack
into the, mysteries, of the game, but
tha the "pupil" had obtained most
of the "teacher's" bank roll. Carack
started with about $5 and bad $105.05
in his possession when arrested, while
the "teacher" had about $13 left.
The patriotic feature of the game
became apparent when Carack testi
fied he intended investing his win
nings in thrift stamps. Judge Fitz

WTr. WATSON SAYF
HE HAD SUFFERED
FOR TWENTY YEARS
Takes Tanlac and Now Feels
Like New Man; Gains
"I am just now on my third bottle
of Tanlac and have actually gained
fifteen pounds," was the remarkable
statement made by W. R.atsn,
428 West Fifth South Street, Salt
Lake City, recently. Mr. Watson, who
was a railroad man for a long time,
has for tho past two years been em
ployed by the city in the bridge de
partment., "For twenty years, that is, until I
began taking Tanlac," continued Mr.
Watson, "I have suffered more than I
can tell from gas and pains in my
stomach. These attacks would come
?uick and sharp and in ten minutes
would be tompelled to give up what
ever I might be doing. For five years
I suffered the greatest agony. About
fifteen years ago my condition be
came so serious that I had an. opera
tion, and after this I seemed t? get
better, but in about a year the pains
returned just as bad as ever. My
stomach would knot up in great ridges
and the pain wai perfectly awful.
Nothing I would eat agreed with me.
I had no appetite and all my food
would sour and make gas and misery
for me. My nerves were so shattered
that I could hardly sleep at all, and
many a day I could not go to my
work at all. My color was bad and my
strength was getting away from me
rapidly. I fell off some fifty pounds
in weight and nobody will ever know
how I sufferedbecause I can only
partially describe it
"But my relief has come at last,
thanks to Tanlac. I saw where it was
proving of suh benefit to people
here, and as I had tried everything
else without getting any results, I
concluded to see what it would do
for me, and wonderful is the only
word that expresses it After taking
about a half dozen doses my appetite
began to pick up and I found my
stomach-was beginning to digest my
food. When I finished my first bot
tle,xthat tired feeling had left me.
I felt stronger and could walk with
out my legs giving out. Well, when
I first began on Tanlac I just weighed
one hundred and thirty pounds. I
now weigh one hundred and forty
five pounds, an actual gain of fifteen
tounds, and I'm beginning to feel
ike a brand new man. My nerves are
greatly improved and I sleep better
every night I notice my kidneys and
bladder are more regular and natural,
too, and so I have gotten good results
all over. I am fully convinced by
what those two bottles have done for
me that two or three more will put
me in as good health as I ever was
in my life. I'm simply feeling alto
gether different in every .way and I
can't praise Tanlac too highly for the
good it has done me."

Back in the forties, when San Francisco was twenty n
days from New York and Europe, was another planet,
cities were mostly interested in themselves. - ,
, Newspapers had space only for the city hall reporter,
weddings and other local happenings.
But as American life expanded into national, and then
international compass, people demanded news from
other cities and countries. -v
And so, in 1848, the publishers of a number of leading
American newspapers formed a mutual organization
which was named the Associated Press -
In effect, theie newspapers comDined their newsgathering staffs,
supplying each other with the important news, each within his
own particular territory. . ,
Later were added special Associated Press correspondents and
foreign correspondents. Incidentally, a vast organization was
set on foot to transmit the dispatches over the telegraph wires.
From this beginning lias grown the great Associated "
s Press of to-day. Its membership reaches into almost
every city and town of importance in the country
1,080 are on the rolls. It commands th services of
52000 special correspondents, and its fcVeign corre
spondents cover every city in the civilized world. It
operates 22,000 miles of leased telegraph wires every
day, and 30,000 miles every night. . ,
It is the largest and most efficient news gathering or

Use Cocoanut Oil
For Washintr Hair
If you wantjto keep your hair in
good condition, be careful what you
wash, it with.
MosJ; soaps and prepared sham
poos contain too much alkali. This
dries the scalp, makes the-hair brittle,
and is very harmful. Just plain mul
sified cocoanut oil (which is pure and
entirely greaseless), is much better
than the most expensive soap or any
thing else you can use for shampoo
ing, as .this can't possibly injure the
hair. ' ' -
Simply moisten your hair-, with
water and rub it in. One ori two tea
spoonfuls will make -an abundance
of rich, creamy lather, and' cleanses
the hair and scalp thoroughly. The
lather rinses out easily, and removes
every particle'of dust, dirt, dandruff
and excessive oil. The hair ; dries
quickly and 'evenly, and it leaves it
fine and allky, bright, f Juf fy and
easy to manage.
You can get mulsified cocoanut
oil at moat any drugstore: It is vet!
cheap, and a few ounces is enough to
last everyone in the family for"
months.' Adv. . '
