HUMMER BOYS sjfr'JK TOJMARNHV COUNTY SOLDIER BOY
Several of the boys of the selec
tive draft were given transportation
and ordered to report to canton
ments during the week. One bunch
consisting of Cecil Huffman. Ora
Dickenson and Timothy Lane went
to Fort McDowell, California.
Another contingent consisting of
Frauk Triska, Jesse Jones, Busll
KIrsch, Joe Backopanos. Verne Kuril,
l.evi Simpson. Leo. V. Miller. Bon j
o'Hell, Fred Voung were Instructed
to report to Camp Lewis.
Indications are that almost every
available boy will be called in the
immediate future to the camps to
prepare for service in Europe as the
authorities are preparing the way to
increase the army to a greater num
ber as a consequence of the recent
drive made by Germany on the West
ern front. It would appear that man
power Is what is required and every
resource of the United States Is to be
thrown Into the conflict with the
hope of bringing it to a conclusion
in the least possible time.

PROHPECTN FOR POST ROAD
The Times-Herald mentioned in Its
last issue that Assistant Highway
Engineer Bennett was in this terri
tory making an inspection of the
roads and would make a report on
the possibilities of work under the
government appropriation of funds.
Mr. Bennett spent a few days in
this section going over the routes and
from bis conversation and public ut
terances we are led to believe a fav
orable report will be made bv that
gentleman to the Highway Commis
sion. Although ho did not commit
himself, on Sunday owning at the
Liberty Theatre, Mr. Bennett talked
to those present on road work, ex
plaining the worklnga of the commis
sion and how the federal funds were
handled. He said It was not a matter
of Initiative by the counties as we
had been led to believe by some
and that it really did not make any
difference whether a county co-operated
or otherwise, although it was
appreciated if such was forthcoming,
but the appropriations were made
and work prosecuted wherever the
commission found it most advisable.
However. It had been that in every
community where they did work the
COMnty always assisted in some man
ner and that the commission endea
vored to comply with the desires of
the. county court wherever possible.
Mr. Bennett did not express him
self In the presence of the writer but
he Is reported as having stated that
one of the roads that should have
attention was the one between here
and Crane which should be graveled.
This was taken to indicate that fed
eral funds may be used for such a

have been made upon the journal
but the following notes have been
taken from the minutes as the busi

Gilbert are registered at the Levens

S. Laud Office.
Mrs. M. V. Dodge, county food ad
ministrator, has been some busy
woman thla week placing her latest
Instructions before the people in re
spect to the conservation of food. A
meeting of the merchants of this city
brought solid support of her efforts
anil she went before a meeting of the
Home Guards last evening to ask the
aid of that organization and its mem
bers. The new regulations ask that
we limit our consumption of white
flour to one and one half pounds per
person each week. This must be done
during the next two months until the
new crop is harvested. People are
urged to turn back all wheat of flour
they have In their possession over a
30 day supply and this Is to be sent
to aid the army. It is even suggest
ed that we make It entirely wheat
les during that period (half a pound
each week being considered wheat
leas under this Interpretation) ami
this may be done in many cases.
However, it appears from her instruc
tions that it is the intention of the
state food administrator to favor the
isolated districts in enforcing these
measures until such time as substi
tutes may be obtained iu quantity.
In this connection the writer finds
people are generally in sympathy
with the wishes of the administration
on the conservation ot food but so
far substitutes have been very ex
pensive and In most instances scarce,
therefore it has worked a hardship.
Nevertheless Harney County should
not be found among the slackers in
any matter pretaining to war mea
sures and Its citizens will cheerfully
comply with every demand so tar an
within their power. The Times-Herald
hopes, though, that the price of
substitutes will be regulated by the
government the same as wheat, wool
anil other such commodities.
