It ha been said that the Revolu

baaty pudding, In other wordi. corn
meal much. Let It be written In his
tory that the winning of the present
war was made possible by the United
States eating potatoes.
The manner of eating, the time of
eating and even the kind of foodstuffs
eaten are largely a matter of habit
We do not desire to break ourselves
entirely of the bsbit of eating or life
would not prove worth living, but It
can be made to prove better worth
living If we change some of the habits.
Suppose we cure ourselves of the
hand-eating hMt and see if we do
not consume less bread. If yon were
to put your bread and butter on your
plate and eat It with a knife and fork
It would reduce the amount of bread
eaten at once. In some of the Oriental

Hew to Increase World's Bread Rstion
With famine creeping through Eu
rope, and every nation struggling to
produce enough food to sustain life,
the American farmer baa a duty that
he can not shirk. America must ship
food to Europe for our soldiers.
America must supply bread to starv
ing peoples. No matter what other
crops are raised, more acres should
be devoted to bread grains. "Do your
bit. Mr. Farmer." save a Food Ad
ministration bulletin. "Success de
pends upon yen In this world war."

AMERICAN families would have less sugar than the
people of war torn France, if we depended entirely
on our home-grown sugar stocks.
Approximately 75 per cent, of our sugar is shipped
to our shores. We produce about 1,000,000 tons of Bugar
a year. Our imports from abroad amount to over-3,000,-000
tons a year in normal times. I -
The United States Fopd Administration asks each
family to limit its use of sugar to two pounds per month
per person for household use. The military situation de
mands that every available ship be placed at the disposal
of the Army or Navy. When we save sugar, wo save
Remember, Boy Scouts, each of you receives ten percent of all
you collect, this commission to be deducted by you when making
your daily turnover. Then you have a chance of winning a prize
also this depending upon your industry and success as a subscrip
tion salesman.
The PRIZE FUND will be divided as follows: First prize, 50
percent Second prize, 25 percent. Third prize, 15 percent
Fourth prize, 10 percent
Thus if the net collections should reach a total of $500 the
PRIZE FUND would be 1100 and the Boy Scout getting the most
votes would receive a first prize of $50. The second prize would
be $25, the third 115, and the fourth 10.
The prizes will be paid by the LEADER in bank checks when
the contest is ended and the decision of the judges announced.

Chicago. High art and low art,
music and literature and dolls that
talk and walk are to be taboo forever
and forever to members of a new club
here, when they bear the "Made la
Germany" stamp or flavor.
"Use Nothing German' Is the same
of the club. And the women who have
formed It swear that they mean what
they say, and that after the war they
intend that the kaiser does not re
cuperate from the ills he has brought
upon himself through their aid.
The club expects to spread its mes
sage countrywide, and thus to Induce
women throughout the United States
to back them up in ignoring every
thing German.

the people It was his duty to help.
After describing the terrible condi
tions In Poland la 1910, the mlllloos
that were dying of starvation, the
hundreds Of thousands of defenseless
people that bad been ruthlessly eat
down by the sword of the German eon.
qneror, he says:
In that situation, the German com
mander Issued a proclamation. Every
able-bodied Pole waa bidden to Ger
many to work. If any refused, let no
other Pole give him to eat, not so
much as a mouthftn. under penalty of
German military law.
This ts the choice the German gov
ernment give to the conquered Pole,
to the husband and father of n starv
ing family: Leave year family or die
or survive as the case may be. Leave
your country which la destroyed, to
work In Germany for its further de
struction. If yon are obstinate. we
shall see that yon surely starve.
Staying with bis folk, he la doomed
and they are not saved; the father and
husband can do nothing for them, he'
only adds to their risk and suffering..
Leaving them, he will be cut off front
his family, they may never hear from
him again nor he from them. Ger
many will set him, to work that a Oer-'
man workman may be released to light
against his own hind and people. He!

earnings shall bo taken from him to
pay for his food.
-That is the choice which the Ger
man government offers to a proud,
sensitive, high-strung people, Death
or slavery.
When a Pole give me that proclamsn
tlon, I was boiling. Bat I had to ro
ot rain myself. I waa practically the
only foreign civilian In the country
and I wanted to get food to the people.
That waa what I was there for and X
must not for any cause Jeopardise thai
undertaking. I asked Governor Gen

"Really, I cannot say." he replied.
T have signed so many proclamations ;
ask General Von Krles."
So I asked General von Krles. "Gen

this be truel"

It is hunt for us to Imagine such a
condition in America as Mr. Walcott
has described as existing In Hun-rld-tlen
Poland, and yet that ts just what
would exist should our boys, and the
boys of our allies, now fighting in
Frimce fall to defeat the soldiers of
this murder empire. This fair coun
try of ours would be made into a Ger

the slaves of the Junkers of Germany,

officers of the German army. In no
