Just as in pre-war times Fisher's Blend is made of

If it was Economy in pre-war times to

Fisher's Blend is the ideal flour to use with Wheat
Substitutes. These substitutes lack a balanced gluten.
They require mixture with a strong wheat flour.

Stricken With Illness While
Attending Officers' Train
ing Cansp At Eugene
It was with the deepest regret that
the many friends of Thomas 'A. Town
send heard this morning of his death
yesterday at Eugene from an attack of
pneumonia, which developed following
an attack of the Spanish influenza.
' Mr. Townsend was among a dozen
or more of Salem men who went to Eu
gene the first of the month to attend
a civilian officers training camp. One
week ago today he first suffered
from, an attack of the influenza Out
it was not until Tuesday afternoon of
this week that his condition wag con"
sidered serious. Mrs. Townsend receiv
ed a telegram Tuesday stating that he
was seriously ill and left at once. She
was at his bedside at the time of his
Mr. Townsend was a salesman, rep
resenting Allen & Lewis of Portland
and had a host of friends in the val
ley. He was graduated in 1909 from
the University of Oregon. Two years
agp he married Miss Beatrice Smith
Besides his wife Mr. Townsend is

Serious Situation Faces
Hop Growtrs In Oregon
"While the prune men are having
their troubles, they are nothing com
pared to hop men, according to one who
is familiar with the hop situation. The
fact is, the hop men are on the fence
and hardly know which way to turn.
There is the . assurance that no more
hops will be needed for the manufac
ture of beer until a-year after the sol
diers are demobilized and then only
by a proclamation- of the president.
There is also the feeling that the manr
ufaerurB of beer ire England will be
largely reduced and' as . England "was
the big market, tho hop men are fac
ing a lot of uncertainty. Even with
these conditions very few mon are
plowing up 'their hop. tracts but are
waiting ' until next spring to finally
decide what to do about it. The quo
tations on hops today are 10 and .11
cents but it is figured with the present-condition
prevailing next yeur, jt
would cost 14 or 15, cents U' produce
the crop. ;
With the prod'uetion-of beer cut, the
Only use there is for hops is in the
making of yeast,, dyes and its uses for
medicinal purposes, but this would re
quire but five per cent of an ordinary
crop. ... ; " . -
At the timeof the greatest prosper
ity in the hop business, it is estimated
that 25,000 acres were planted in Ore
gon. No statistics havj been kept by
which the present acreage can be esti
mated but it is known that many . of
the most successful hop growers plow
ed up their fields this year and that
many yards across the river and near
Independence were not picked, as the
in Albania being rapidly, outflanked
from the north.
The entire Belgian coast appears to
have been evacuated by tho Germans.
The Belgians are officially reported
on tho outskirts of Bruges, while it is
reported that the enemy had flodfiom
Zeebrngge, the last remaining German
submarine base on Belgian territory,
Bruges is only seven miles from the
Dutch border. Further south the allies
have passed Thielt and are within less
than fifteen miles of Ghent. Across
the border, in France) the British are
officially reported on the outskirts of
Turcoing and are rapidly approaching
Douai, which the British had domi
nated for weeks, has been entered.
The Anglo-American attack yestor
day between Bohain and LeCatoau car
ried them to within less thai a mile
of the railway center of Wassigny and
shortened the, distance to tho vital en
emy base of Hirson to twenty miles.
Let'ateau was completely cleared of
Germans. More than 3000 .prisoners.!
were taken in these operations.
French troops, cooperating on the
Anglo-American right, made important
advances along the Oise, mopping up
more than half of the Andigny forest
and penetrating to within two miles of
Further progress was made by the
French ana Americans in tho Cliam-pagne-Argonne
region. Tho Americans
improved their positions on both sides
of the Meuse. '
