men nnd women, engaged In occupa­
tions hardly leas directly concerned
with the war’s prosecution, England
Is organizing one more “ comb out” to

companied by a renewed Insistence
upon the utmost economy of every ef­

Is the watchword of tin* new national
service campaign under tho direction
of Sir Auckland Gcddes, minister of
national service.
"Woman's clothes are the grave of
an enormous uniount of human ener­

In practically every home, we ure wast­
