(By Wm. Hamilton Otborot.)
My now neighbor Is a man of un
certain ago ho looks forty, but prob
ably Is thirty-five. Ills manner Is
youthful however, and ho Is very
vigorous and frco and easy -with his
"No, sir," ho said to mo ono day in
tho car, "no, sir, I didn't ratso my
boy to bo a soldier. Not by a long
I shook my head. "This kind of
talk at this time," I warned him,
"is a bit dangerous, isn't it? Maybe,
though," I went on, "you haven't any
boy, and, therefore, ho couldn't bo a
"Haven't a boy," he exclaimed,
"you bet I have. I've got three of
"How old aro they?" I queried.
"Seven, flvo and three," he re
turned promptly.
"Then," 1 remarked, "you were
only Joking."
"Not on your life," ho came back
nt me, "I'm dead earnest about this
thing. I didn't bring those boys into
tho world to fight. Listen. Italy has
been at war with Turkey since 1911.
Soven long years. Boys that were
eight yea re old in 1911 aro filling up
tho ranks today. Do you think 1
-want that for my boys. Do you think
I want my three little boys to grow
up Into a. ton years' war. Not on
your life. I'll do all that's In ray
power to prevent It. If every civilian
In this country would do everything
In his power to prevent It, tho thing
would be easy. Listen. I'm strong
for a two years' rar, or a three years'
war. That's going to clean us up
that'll put the kibosh on Germany
onco and for oil. That's what I call
rapid firo business. We can clean up
inside of two or three years In this
war. We're quick, wo Americans.
Quick, when we go to it. Well, all
we'vo got to do here at home is to
back this war, hot and heavy now.
Then thero'll bq an end to It. But
if -wo don't, goodnight. If we back
it up now "
"By backing It up you mean?"
"Money. That's the thing that
talks. A llttlo of tho cream off the
top. A little self-sacrifice now or a
-wbolo lot of 'necessary hell later.
Listen. Look forward ten years from
now. Suppose there's still war. What
will it mean to you? Your little kids
of today all over there all getting
killed. Your wlfo and family sick
-with deprivation. Your Income neces
sarily taxed down to one-third of its
eizo. This whole people, this govern
ment, even slaves. Sounds funny,
don't It? Slaves to what? To Ger
many? No slaves to war. Do Ave
-want a war that is going to last so
long that the mark of Its heel as It
grinds us down In the rolro Is going
to show and bo left for two or three
generations? Do wo want that? Wo
can have it If wo want It. We can
havo It easy enough. We can all sit
back and say: 'America will win the
warl' She will, if that's all -we do
about It Just say that. She will win
But hero's what I'm Interested In:
Is she going to win at the end of two
years or at tho end of ten? At a
cost of twenty billions or a hundred
billions of dollars. At tho loss of a
liundred thousand men, or five mil
lions? That's what Interests men.
Now, I want Just what every man in
America wants. He wants to -win this
war and ho wants to win it quick.
Every man In this country, and every
man's family, will be In this war
somehow or other, at some time. I
don't mean In tho trenches I mean
in tho grip of war, and what it means.
All right. If every man in this coun
try will realize that If we all 'got in
now wo can get In quick and make a
quick finish, that when wo'ro saving
ourselves from a few years of holl on
earth if ho would only realize that,
he'd get in quick. He'd put every
cent, every dollar ho possibly could
spare ho'd make every monetary
sacrifice to win this war."
I'retty good 'philosophy, I thonght.
Was It all talk. Not a bit of It. I
discovered that this man and his
young family, with tho prldo of pa
triotism shining In their faces, for
ovor a year havo been denying them
selves everything save tho absoluto
necessaries of. life. They have, In
fact, been putting their livelihood,
their cowfprtablo living, into this
war. What for? So that his little
boys won't have t,o grow lip Into a
long war, so thaj his ylfe may In tho
future havo WbVg' jfp'eat -so hat
othor American' fa'm'l'iies' in 'tho fu-
turo may lmvo onqugh lo llvo on.
It struck mo thftl It everybody I if tho
country could hoar this mnu talk, nnd
tho way ho said It, and could know
tho surprising nnioiint of wnr savings

erty bonds that ho nnd his llttlo
family hivo purchased, tho rest of
us would -begin to -wako up nnd como
to his way of thinking that if wo,
your nnd I, would nil of us Jump Into
this war quick, wo could soon get t(
over with nnd llvo happy ovor nftor,
It wo don't, wo'ro llablo to havo tho
hool of war upon our nocks for years
to como. America will win tho wnrj
but whon, at what cost, at tho loss
of how many lives? Tho nnswor
rests with you. It rests with mo.

(From Friday's Dally.)
Commencing tomorrow norulng,
no sugar can bo purchased In Do-
schutes county In any quantity what-
over unless a card is first signed by
tho purchasor. This aunouncomotit
went out In tho form of a letter from
tho county food administrator's of-
Ilco Into yestorday afternoon.
Mr. Hartrantt In an Interview
stated that tho action taken was
necessary for tho conservation ot tho
sugar nupply.
"Tho sugar situation in tho United
States Is ono that domands our ut
most attention," ho Bald, "and be
causo soma aro not Inclined to llvo
up to tho regulations It lias becomo
necessary that somo method of check
tug sugar sales bu Introduced. Such
a method is being worked out for tho
entire state, but until that method Is
perfected tho county will ubo Its own!
card, supplies of which wero mailed
to tho grocers of tho county this
afternoon, to go Into effect Immedi
ately upon receipt."
Those cards aro lo bo used by the
grocers in making all sugar snles,
both for family consumption nnd for
canning purposes, nnd must he signed
by tho head of the family, nnd In the
Instance where tho houses are num
bered tho street nddross must b
shown on tho card.
Intent of tlic Curd SjMeiii.
Tho purpose of tho card system,
according to Mr. Hartrantt, is to
keep a check on tho amount of sugar
sold In the city, at tho same time
preventing tho purchasers from mak
ing a purchaso at ono storu on ono
day and going back and repeating tho
performance at another placo ot busi
ness on the day following. Under
tho card system, tho head ot tho
family is entitled to hln purchaso ot
sugar each woek, at tho averago of
thrco pounds per person per month.
When tho purchaso Is made tho num
ber of persons In tho family mint
bo given, and a weekly allowanpe
will bo sold, no more.
AVill Hnvo Double Check.
Tho card system elves a double
check on tho sugar sales In tho. coun
ty. If tho head of the family pur
chases three pounds of sugar ono
week and does not como back again
for a number of weeks, tho food ad
ministration will bo able to deter
mine whorls cither hoarding sugar or
living without it. In tho first in
stanco prosecution Is apt to follow,
immediately, and In tho latter In
stance tho purchaser would bo com
mended for tho forebcaranco.
.Sugar Situation Acute.
The sugar situation in tho natltfn1
Is serious, Mr. Hartrantt declared.
Under orders recolvt'd by him from
tho state food administrator's offl'co
yesterday, no sugar will bo issued on
pormlt during tho month of August
for any purpose whatever, elthor to
wholesalers, camps or hotels or prl
vato Individuals, without first receiv
ing a permit from tho national offlco.
How long this order will remain in
effect Is not known, hut it is safo to
say such a condition will last during
tho entlro month.
Following Is tho form of card
which is to bo signed:
P. O Dato
