"The task of combating the spread
of venereal disease among tho civil
oomartunrtles of the United States, 1b-
i a teak that has taken on a tremen
dously, added importance with (he
coming of peace", declares Burgeon
General Rupert Blue of the U. B
Public Health Service.
"Fortunately congress enabled us
to organize our division of venereal
diseases a sufficient time ahewdl of
the comtog of peace to enable us to
make appreciable headway In the
task of securing clean communities
to which our returning soldiers may
came. And, while the Job of fighting
vice diseases la first, last and all the
time, a civilian Job, It must not be
forgotten, that It was the vast
amount of venereal disease thoit was
oreaping Into our imilltary cervlce
from civil life that first awakenod us
to the noed of the work. The esti
mates of Mne of the military autkor
,'ltles were to the effect, that no less
than five-sixths of M the vice disease
In the 'army wbb brought there from
civil life."
Statistics dealing specifically with
venereal dlneose among the men en
tering the training camps have Just
been issued. Theso figures deal with
one million men, a quota from every
state in the Union.' These figures
show that the state Bonding the least
proportion of men afflicted with vice
ti'iseases was Oregon with .69 per
cent. The 'largest percentage of In
fected men was furnished by Florida
with 8.9 O'er cent.
Statistics dealing with this subject
since Congross placed the whole mat
ter In change of the U. S. Public
Health Service are now being comipll
ed and it la expected that they will
show a marked Improvement.

Hair that loses Ha color and lustre, or
: when It fades, turns srav. dull and life
less, is caused by a lack of aulpluir la
the hair. Our grandmother made up a
mixture of Sago Tea aud Sulphur to
keep her locks dark and beautiful, and
thousands of women and men who value
that even color, that beautiful dark
shade of hair whioh la so attractive, use
only this old-time recipe.
Nowadays we get this famous mixture

It and draw tins tnrougn your nair, wa

dHlghla the ladies with Wyeth's Sage and

tifully darkening the hair, after a few
- applications, it also brings back the gloss
and lustra and gives it an appearance
of abundance.

slept on the barn floor. There was
cold water In the yard, but no means
for taking a bath, . No one had' a
change of clothes and there was no
means to wash those we bad. In oil
the month and a half wc.s at Laon
I did not have my clothes off. Every
body was covered; with lice.
The Germans issued un nothing,
not even a mess tin. We ate out of
old cans, and if we happened to get
a piece of meat In the soup too big
to drink, we Jirxl to eat It with our
fingers." '
From Laon, SavlcM was cent to
the prison camp at Rastatt, to which,
eairly In the war, many French ci
vilians were deported. He made the
trip In a box car with 40 odd other
Americans. They were three days
and two nlehts en route, .during
which they mibsloted-en a piece of
bread each and two drinks of water.
At Rastatt conditions were better.
It had felt the effects of the work
that the American Red Cross is doing
lor American prisoners In Germany.
A shower bath had been shipped In
from Switzerland and it had been
installed. Savickl igot a both and
a change of -underwear. Many of
the Americans in the camp were non-
coms; Non-comu), Savickl was told,
are not Tequlred to labor. The Ame
rican remained 1 days In this camp
and received two 'boxes from the Red
Cross, containing each 10 pounds of
or.nnod meat, 'beans, tobacco and
hardi tack. The Red Cross forwards
one of these boxes each week to
every American prisoner in Germany,
From Rastatt, Savackl was sent to
work on a farm. The farm was near
a little' town of 60 houses. It was
presided over by an aged) German
and his wife. Their son, 30 years
old, was at the front. The old far
mer iput his charge to digging pota
toes with, a fork. Savickl worked
from1 daylight until dark, about 14
hours. '
After dark he had a late supper at
the same toMe as the German couple.
Sometimes the Germans had eggs and
occassional! ly a little milk never
any meat bwt usually their sole
article of diet was potatoes, and po
tatoes waa all they ever gave Sa
vickl. After supper a German soldier came
for the prisoner andi marched htm to
a sort of guard-house, in which were
quartered a group Of Russian pris
oners who worked on other farms.
These Russians, although peace be
tween Russia and Germany had long
Blnce been signed, were still held in
captivity despite their protests. They
were treated the same as the lone
American except, that, whereas the
latter was locked In his prison, all
day on Sundays, they ware allowed
the freedom of the farm.
Speaking their language, Savickl
soon sained the confidence of -the
Russians. Some of them hadl boon
captives -for nearly four years. All
of them were restrained from efforts
to escape by the rigorous puntahiment
Inflicted u'pon fugitives when caught.
This punishment conslstB of 20 days'
solitary confinement In a bare room
on a diet of bread and water broad
one day and wator the next, alter
nating through the 20. You got this
punishment if you were not shot, but,
thoy explained, escaping prisoners
usually were shot.
Despite this prospect, Savickl de
cided to chanco It. Ho learned from
the Russians that a snow-capped
mountain, visible in the distance, was
in Switzerland; it would serve to
guide him. On the fifteenth day of
his stay on tho fnrm caine his weoldy

He and the Ruc-Blnns ate it botween
them, nil except ttfb cans of corned
beef and two packages of hnrdUvck.

That night, as usual, the guard
came to the farm house for his
chnrge. As usunl, the Yank started
to ' the guardhouse. As usual, the
sentry followed about 20 feet behind.
In -Pact, the only unuoual thing that
happened this evening was that Sn-
vtckl stopped aside at tho door of
his jail, and when tho guard enlorwl,
as wins his habit, he shut the door
and locked it. Then lie quietly made

-"German soldlerB actually on the
line eat fairly woll," said Savickl.
They all have 'bread, meat once a
day, marmr.Inde, coffee substitute and
tobacco made of loaves. . They do not
have all they want, hut they have
enough to keep them in good health.
"The soldiers at the depots 20 to
inOea behind the line, however, do
not iget the same ration. They have
meat only two or three times a week,
and they subsist mostly on war bread
and vegetables grown by themselves.
French civilians forced to work in
their gardens, and prisoners.
"In Germany Itself there is little
ood of any kind. During the 15 days
I worked on the farm, I ate at the
sanne table with the old funnier and
his -wife. They had chickens and
cows, but only rarely did they have
milk or eggs themselves, and never
did they iglve me more than a boiled
potato in hot water. With my box
from the Red Cross I had a far bet
