But for the fact that he was de

to fill an appoint, Mr. Gilbert
T. Stephenson, who Wednesday night
addressed the members of the local
Chamber of Commerce on the war
savings plan, would doubtless have
spent the. night in Wilmington where
he had been stopping.
Mr. Stephenson, who is State or
ganizer for the War Savings Com
mittee, went down to the passenger
station In what he thought was am
ple time to get a ticket for New
Bern. However, here was a long
line of men and women ahead of
him and finally when he saw that he
would not be able to get a ticket
and the train at the same time, he
decided to get on the train and pay
Going out of the station he found
that the train was fully a quarter
of a mile up the track. He was dis
mayed ' but decided to get an auto
mobile and try to catch it at a point
ten mile up the road. The mar
chine was secured and that 10 miles
was covered In about 10 tnlnutes and
he boarded the train at that point
and caine on to this city and deliver

Owing to the fact that many of the
water and steam pipes in local mills
froze during the recent cold weather
when the Operators had not a suf

The mill men are also having

Venereal Diseases Bigoest Problem
Confrohtlng Health Authorities.
Special to Ttte Dispatch.)
Raleigh, , Jan. 11. A telegram to
Dr. W. S. Rankin, secretary of the
State Board of Health; from Sjur-
geon General Rupert Blue reads

Dr. Rankin is now in correspond

General Gbrgas report to the Coun

ing isrbased. on the report:
"During the twelve weeks ending
December. 7, 1917i there were report
ed from 31 cantonments, 21,742 new
cases of venereal diseases. The in
capacitation of tlfese men involves
not only loss of time; in addition, it
has cost the Government to keep
them during the period of hospital
confinement (which varies from one
to eight weeks) more money than is
required to maintain the entire com
mand at Camp Dix (the cantonment
in New Jersey with 20,859 men) plus
an additional sum for medical treat

Gratified Over the Response
Made to Appeal
' . (By6ebrfle H. Manning.)
-Washington,- Jan il. The Peder-
al Food Administration- - is highly !
gratified over the saving that has '
been maae in consumption or rooa-
stuffs in the American homes since
the food conservation campaign was -
begun about five months ago.
Although no .. figures" are available
showing -the actual . saying . and the
Food Administration - realizes it
would be an impossible task to even
approximate the saving - . that has
been effected in edibles, yet the fact
that every mouth In the United Stat
es has been - amply filled and that
we have been able from our surplus
to supply every demand made by bur
European Allies, satisfies the Food1
Administration officials that the sav-
ing would - reach millions and mil -
lions of pounds of food.

dicating that less food is being wast
ed each day.
3 Such large savings have been
made in consumption of foods, espec
ially in wheat and meat that we
have been able to supply' everything
in the way of food for which the
Allies have asked for the past three
months. Enough wheat has been
saved from the American crop to
supply the Alliesfor the next three
months, by which time the Argentine
wheat crop will be ready for con
sumption. 4 More canning of vegetables and
fruit was done in the United States
last summer than in any other year
and the Food Administration believ-
Ves that such a -.proportion of these
food supplies are now held by the
housewives as to reduce the demand
on the merchants for food foriiihe
next few months very considerably
below that of previous years.
