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 Immediate territory Is aow subject to military control and regulation so far as soldiers Tt1 matters affecting them are concerned. This means that the authority of the federal gov eminent can be Invoked for search Ing baggage for whiskey, in dealing with Immoral women and with! other problems which perplexed ths city rovernraent before it had the assist ance of .the war department and ths commanders of the camps located near Asheville. Home Influences. 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 succeed. A volunteer motor corps now helna the organization solve Its transportation problems. 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.

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.
