Buy a Good Refrigerator NOW
Food Will Win the War Don't Waste I
The Food Administrator advises strict economy in food eat what you want, but
don't waste. A poor ice box will waste food by letting it spoil. It is a duty to get a
good ice box that will .preserve all the foods perfectly. Here is wide variety.
Bohn Syphon Refrigerators
(Seamless Porcelain Lined)
are the best food preservers that we know of. The patent syphon air circulating system
prevents odor contamination of all kinds of easily tainted foods and you can put in the
same compartment, onions, bananas, butter and cream not one will spoil.
The air in the Bohn Syphon Refrigerators is drier than in a room; the syphon causes the air to circu
late rapidly- through the fooo chambers and always in the same direction. The rapid circulation pre
vents collection of moisture on walls or shelves and keeps the entire food chamber sweet and sanitary.

it is to man these that volunteers are

There are three types of the tanks,
the slow, heavy tank for cleaning
up; the intermediate, lor following an
attack, and the faster driven kind, a
powerful land dreadnaught, of 250-horse-
power, used for keeping pact
