THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION. 225 West 39th Street, New York City, is our sole and exclusive Foreign Advertising' Agent. "Long May It Wave." By saving food save human life. W. S. Do you want to save the life of the children of Europe ? Then save food. V .. w.!s. S. s. j . , Ifi you haven't boiight your allot ment of War Savings Stamps, why not.? W. 8. S Between a food profiteer and a Bol sheviki there's not much room left for choice. w. s. s. Don't you want our boys brought home? If jou uo buy War Savings Stamps to help do it. W. S. S President Wilson is in Europe, but Teddy and Congress are still with us, so there's ho reason for a dull mo ment. W. S. S. Bill Hohenzollern says he did not start the war. We suppose some German will rise up and claim there has been no war. w. s. s A crowd of Luxemburg tore down' some stores because the shop keeper had overcharged the Ameri cans, i fetter import a few thousand of them to the United States. t i jyy. s. s.-- Dicf Bill take 'the late King of Greece with him? Seems to us that Bill agreed to restore the throne oi Greece to his brother-in-law. But lost thrones are common in Europe just now. W. S. State Food Administrator Page says the food profiteers will not be al lowed to escape punishment by Red Cross donations in the future. Then why not make a donation of them to the penitentiary. w. s. s. It is predicted that eggs will be selling for one dollar per dozen by February first. Well, we don't care. Ham has been too high for our pocket book for many months, and what are e?gs without ham? W. SL H.voull not be to North Carolina's creiit to fall cwn or buying her share of War Savings Stamps. We have done so extraordinarily well on everything else, let's not leave un undone this one thing. w. S. s.- Democratic newspapers keep ham mering at the unfitness of Postmastr General Burleson for the position. There are many men in the United States who could do worse, but we are from Missouri. W. S. S. Monday's dispatches tell us that our boys have crossed the Rhine and are on German soil. That was their in tention when they left the United States, and they would have been a sadly disappointed crowd unless they had. Hope they reach Berlin before ordered home. W. S. S Both Republican and Democratis U. S. Senators are heaving-bricks at the President's head, because he didn't appoint one on the peace com mission. As much scrapping as they have Jone in the United States Sen ate for thepast year ..we presume the Prsident hiwily thought that a good plaqe to look for peace conferees. . hp American should delude himself into thinking that we have nothing to fear from Bolshevikism in the United states.
