Looks as if the wooden ice box
will be back in the American home.
The ice box is one of many items
in which wood will be replacing
metal. And you'll probably be see
ing more wooden wash tubs and
pails around the house than you
have for years. However, the high
quality timber will go first of all for
Are you turning in all the used
collapsible tubes around your house
so the tin can be reclaimed from
them? The turn in of old tube
when buying new tubes of tooth
paste or shaving cream is bringing
in 40 tons of critical materials each
month. But WPB officials declare
the amount isn't satisfactory. Of
course, ever since the WPB order
limiting use of tin in containers,
many tubed products now are being
packaged in other types of contain
ers. However, the WPB says there
are still many filled tubes in stock
or in the hands of consumers. So
make a more earnest effort to see
that all the old tubes are turned in.
Uncle Sam is trying to keep fam
ily ties as strong as possible despite
the increasing need of war indus
tries for women workers. The War
Manpower commission pointed out
that the first responsibility of wo
men with young children, in war as
in peace, is to care for them in their
own homes. The WMC is urging
that no women with young children
be encouraged to seek employment
in industry if it deprives their chil
dren of necessary care, until all
other sources of labor supply have
been exhausted. However, the choice
is left to the individual, and if wo
men with young children join pro
duction lines, efforts should be
made to provide adequate nursery'
care through community projects.

You're in for the surprise of your life when
you see and drive the John Deere Model "H"
the sensational new small tractor that handles
two-row equipment and completely replaces
animal power on small and large farms every
where, cutting costs 'way below their former
level, and making farming more profitable.
And when you learn the price, you'll wonder
how John Deere can give you so much in a tractor
that sells for so little.
In addition, the Model "H" not only burns low
cost fuel but it uses only 13 to 12 as much fuel
on the many jobs within its power range, as would
larger tractors handling the same load.
Come in, see it, and get "the surprise of your

While on the subject of sugar, let's
consider some benefits of price con
trolling this commodity. Granulated
sugar climbed from five cents a
pound in 1914 to 27c a pound in 1920.
During the war, government controls
held prices at 10c a pound, but
when the control was taken away
after the war, it shot up to an aver
age of 18c a pound in 1920, later
that year going to 27 V2C a pound.
The following year, 1921, deflation
brought the price down to GV2C
During this war sugar has had a
low price of 7c a pound in March,
