EARN RENOWN BY
: RED CROSS WORK
. Originate Plan of Gathering
I Hog Shipments for Fund;
; ' National Stock Exchange
' Favors Idea.-
To a small group of patriotic farm
ers in the vicinity of Genoa, Neb.,
belongs the credit of having started
a movement in connection with the
nalion-wide movement for Red Cross
funds that has attracted the attention
of the 24 larger markets of the coun
try controlled by the National Live
., These farmers originated the idea
of making a canvass among their
neighbors and getting each one to
contribute a hog, a calf or a sheep,
md turn the proceeds of the sale over
io the local Red Cross chapter. The
5rst load of hogs collected in this
manner arrived on the South Side
market February 2 and netted the
Genoa chapter approximately $2,300.
The idea was taken up by neighboring
;ommunities and gradually spread to
practically every county in the state,
md even to adjoining states, with the
t -esult .that approximately $283,000 has
i neen reanzea irom inese saies on inc
. South Side market.
! ,. Now the National Live Stock ex
change has appealed to the United
.States railroad administration at
i Washington for free transportation
' for all Red Cross shipments. These
shipments, according to C B. Heine
. maim, secretary of the National Live
: Stock exchange, are the property of
the American Red Cross society as
" toon as placed in the hands of the
; :arriers, and he stated that it would
i ae no more than the patriotic duty of
1 :he railroad companies t5 handle them
i iree of charge.
. Use Fresh Perishable Food,
Urges Food Administrator
"Use fresh, perishable food products
and save the more stable foods, which
.can be exported."
That message was brought back by
!Gurdon W. Wattles, federal food ad
ministrator for Nebraska, from Wash
ington, where he attended a meeting
of food administrators of the United
; "By using these short-lived foods
we can liberate the more concentrated
and staple foods for people in the
;more remote sections and for the al
lies and our soldiers," said Mr. Wat
"tles. "Moreover, we can greatly re
lieve transportation by consuming at
home -foods that are grown at home.
JN'.'t only is it conservation, but it is
'. "And further, we should not con
sume canned goods at this particular
'lime. Immense stocks of canned goods
Imust be reserved for export." -

Cocoanut Oil Fine
For Wahing Hair
. If you want to keep your hair in
good condition, be careful what you
wash it with.
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries the
scalp, makes the hair brittle, and is
very harmful. .Just plain mulsified
cocoanut oil (which is pure and en
tirely greaseless), is much better than
the most expensive soap or anything
else you can use for shampooing, as
this can't possibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with wa
ter and rub it in. One or 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 silky, bright, fluffy . and easy
to manage. J&CjH
You can get mulsified cocoanut oil
at most any drug store. It is very
cheap, and a fewunces is enough
to last everyone in the family, for
