If our soldier boys deliberated as long over doing their duty
as some of our people at home hesitate over doing theirs, the
victory would be doubtful.
It is a sort of financial cowardice to hesitate to put your money

the wisdom and patriotism of the investment is to hesitate in
supporting the soldiers.

various food shortages which are with

ration of half a pound a week would

to maintain a lower weight on a di

lessened output of energy required to «s
transport a smaller body weight ▲
lesser body surface also means a
smaller beat loss. The conclusion Is
reached that there is no reason to sup
pose that smaller rations means a
lowering of health—probably the re
