How many potatoes are you eating?
This Is a question the Food Adminis
tratlon wants every loyal American to
ask himself or herself. Strange as It
may soem, the eating of potatoes at
this time Is a practical war service,
according to a recent Food AdminlS'
tratlon bulletin, which points out that
this nation now has a large potato
surplus on hand and that this valuable
food, unless cnten within the next two
months, will bo lost through sprouting
and rotting. I)y eating of potatoes
liberally, every family can save a sub
stantial amount of othor food, particu
larly of wheat. I)y eating up tho sur
plus of potatoes the nation will also
prevent serious loss tn the potato
producer, who needs to bo encouraged
to grow maximum crops during the

How to Increase World's Dread nation
With fuinliio creeping through Ku
rope, nnd every nation strugKllug to
produce enough food to sustain life,
the American farmer has a duty that
he can nut shirk. America must ship
food to Iturupo for our soldiers,
America must supply bread to starv
lug peoples. No matter what other
crops uru rulsed, moru acres should
bu devoted to bread grnlus. "Do your
bit, Mr. Farmer." says n Food Ad
mluUtratlun bulletin. "Success do
peuds upon you In this world war"
West I'olut Is on a food conservation
basis, and the health of the cadet
corp Is better thun ever. All bread
used Is composed of 46 per cent wheat
(lour. 45 rye, aud 10 per cent white
bolted grain flour; nnd many cadets
consider It superior to the former
while bread. Hugar consumption has
beeu cut down, meatless days and

beneficial to health. A lessou from n

Let's Get at the Facts!
Don't Confuse These Measures.
When you go to the polls tomorrow, remember
there are two Jitney Ordinances to bo voted on.
One is tho "Jitney Bonding" Ordinance.
The other is the "Jitney Service" Ordinance.
If you vote for the "bonding" ordinance, you get
nothing in the way of service except what the jit
ney drivers want to give you, and you know what
that was in tho old jitney days. It can't be any
If you vote for the "Jitney Service" Ordinance
you will have some assurance that it jitneys oper
ate, they will give a regular service over regular
routes and for some distance beyond the down
town districts, where they ran riot in the old days.
If you vote for the "Jitney Service" Ordinance,
you will also be entitled to the transfer privilege
the same as you are when you ride on the street
cars. If you vote for the "Jitney Service" Ordinance,
it will have no effect whatever on the question of
bonding jitneys for your protection in case of acch
dent or injury, for the "Jitney Service" Ordinance
specifically provides that the question of the jitney
bonds, the amount and terms, shall be left for de
termination by ordinance.
Some of our opponents have referred to the
"Jitney Service" Ordinance as u "strangulation"
There is this much to be said on that point: If
you vote for the "bonding" ordinance and not for
the "Jitney Service" Ordinance, you will be merely
handing the free use of the streets over to the wild,
unregulated jitneys; you wont get transfers; you
won't get a regular service; you won't know when,
how or whore the jitneys will run. They can dump
you p(T anywhere they like and charge you any
fare they please.
IT WAS TO PREVENT JUST EXACTLY THAT
SITUATION FROM ARISING THAT THE "JITNEY
SERVICE" MEASURE WAS INITIATED AND
PLACED ON THE BALLOT.
This "Jitney Service" measure provides only
moderate regulation and such regulation is aimed
entirely to protect the traveling public in the way
of service. For instance, this measure provides
1. Routes two and one-half miles long on the
West Side and four miles long on the East Side.
2. These routes must be defiuately prescribed and
3. The jitneys must operate for not less than
eight hours each day.
4. Transfers must be given from one jitney
route to another where the passenger travels in the
same general direction.
5. The amount and terms of the bonds are left'
for the City Council to determine.
There isu't a single drastic provision in the ordi
nance, aud there is nothing in the measure that
compels the jitneys to operate except over such
routes as they themselves choose.
li you want Jitney Service reasonably regulated,
you should vote for this ordiuance;
100 X YES.
