Soon after, the, Red Circle service .
came to ABhevllle It was realised tnut
there must be co-operation betwuen
tha various hospital camps ind the
city in the control of the small per
centage of lawlessness which showed
itself at times among ths soldiers.
Mr. Robblns at once took up with
ths southeastern tnilitary department
the Question of making Aahevllle
part of the military zone. Ths de
partment commandant' made the
necessary recommendation and this

The club rooms on Broadway, with
Mrs. E. D. Mayer of New York as
hostess, every day entertain scores of
soldiers and sailors. Pool tables,
books, magazines and well prepared
food are furnished there to Hundreds
every week. The Ked Circle hotel
on Depot street has been so successful
in mlnlHterlng to soldiers and their
friends and relatives that sixty rooms
will be added soon to that hsme for
soldiers. There Mrs. H. B. Kobbina
is hostess. Mrs. Louis M. Bourne la
in charge of the house and Mrs. H. J.
Lilly of the canteen service.
It often happens that meals are
served after midnight at the hotel to
soldiers who find there an hour's rest
and refreshment aa a welcims brenk
to a long Journey by rati. In the
Broadway club rooms as well as In
the hotel the home spirit, the
thoughtful care of men who are de
prived of home innuence, is Kept al
ways In view.
But the war camp - community
service is not confined to soldiers ai.d
sailors. In the Hed Circle hotel fifty
railroad men are now tegular
patron, and relatives of men In
nr-arby hospitals are guests there al
most every day.
The staff which administers these
and other activities-which cannot bo.
mentioned in detail has found Ashe
ville readv. to co-operate. it was
soon learned, it was s,ild yesterday
by an Asheville woman, that when
ever there was anything to be done
for soldiers the war camp, service
was ready to do it or help somebody
else to do it. 4 It does not attempt to
duplicate: It proposes only to be a
clearing house for information and
for well regulated activity in Western
North Carolina. The spirit of the
service has been met in kind by
Asheville people, says Mr. Bobbins;
volunteers serve as hostesses at the
club rooms uptown or at the hotel
and the various civic organizations,
as well as the city commission.
have welcomed these workers Into a
field where everybody saw that some
body was needed but not many knew
the qualifications pi tnose wno cuuiu

X Praise for Asheville.
The " Asheville spirit has received
another high compliment from the
managers of the war camp service.
Secretary Robblns stated yesterday
that after careful investigation he is
confident that there has been no
case in the city where wearers of ths
khaki, were victims of. profiteering.
When It is realized that some army
camp towns have made their names
by-words among thousands of sol
diers as they return to civil life It caa
be seen that Asheville mads an In
vestment whose material value was
not thought of when she chose to
give men in uniform a square deal.
The plan mnounced for ths com
munity house, to be built by the war
department 'and the city and county
and maintained for ths most part by
the government, is another oppor
tunity for co-operation between ths
people of this community and ths
representatives of tha natfon, it is
pointed out. With the propose ;om

all the people there Is assurance that

Half a Century Ago y
Haifa Century Ago every community could be supplied
to some extent with locally dressed meat, drawing on live
stock raised nearby.
Now two-thirds of the consuming centers; with mfllions
of people, are one to two thousand miles away from the
principal live-stock producing sectionswhich are sparsely
settled. . '
The American meat packing industry of today is the
development of the best way to perform a national service.
The function of providing meat had to develop accord
ingly. Those men who first grasped the elements of the
changing problem created the best facilities to meet it
large packing plants - and branch houses at s strategic
points, refrigerating equipment (including cars), car routes,'
trained organization, profitable outlets for former waste
which became the natural inevitable channels for the
vast flow of meat across the country.
If there were a better way to perform this necessary
service," American ingenuity and enterprise -would have
discovered it, and others would now be using it
During 1918, Swift & Company has earned a profit on
meats (and meat by-products) of less than 2lz cents per
dollar of sales too small a profit to have any appreciable
effect on prices.
