"Every State in the Union must "plan to add largely to its present quota of the United War Work Campaign is to adequately meet the demands of our hoys with the colors during the coming year," declared Dr. John R. Mott, of New York, dir ector general of the campaign before a conference of delegates from 14 States at Chicago last Saturday. Kentucky delegates with others from the department were tremendously moved and inspired by Dr. Mott's ' address. Dr. Mott has had charge of the army Y. M. C. A. work ever since the association entered welfare work overseas shortly after Germany started the war. He has visited Europe five times during the past four years and has gone to every part of the fighting front and into the prison camps. When the Y. M. C. ., the Y. W. C. A., the National Catholic War Council, the Jewish Welfare Board, the War Camp Community, Service, the American Library and the Salvation Arn.y joined in the United War Work Campaign at the request of President Wilson Mr. Mott was unanimously elected director general of the campaign. Gives Five Reasons. Herewith are given very briefly 5 reasons presented by Dr. Mott why the national quota of 170.500,000 must toe largely in creased during the campaign the week of November 11. "Hirst Conditions are changing More men are overseas constantly. now than it was considered possible to move in that length of time. Personally, I believe the end of the struggle is far away. Even though the end should come next month we will have to reckon with the welfare of a million more men than we figured on last May when our budgets were made up and O. K'd by the war department. "Second In framing our budgets, the navy was left out. When wc entered the war we had less than 200 ships; by Christmas we will have 2,000. Our navy today is larger than all the navies of the world combined Look at the begining of the war. what that navy has done! Transported over two million men overseas with less than 300 lives lost. Nothing in history compares with it "Third This is a war of the entire people. It is .also a war on machines In every war the burden has been heavier on the women and this one is particularly so on account of the women in munitions work. Eleven million graves are now filled and millions of mained must be provided for. We will see the effects of this war in the bent backs of the women of this and coming generations. "Fourth, This is a comprehensive service. We must take the American home, library, college, club, stage, gymnasium, atheletic fields, churches and synagogues to the men. Surely the American people will not allow us to drop one of these. "Fifth We cannot neglect our allies. For three long years before we recognized our duty, they saw theirs. I have made five trips to Europe since 1914. The Y. M. C. A. which I represented put up the first French foyer' do soldat or, fireside, as the French term is. We did it only after repeated attempts with French army officials. Finally one general said he would allow one hut in one spot with one' man in charge to try it out.

According to a correspondent of the Associated Press the American of Ver-dusoldiers situated north-wehave been unusually busy during the last month.. A few of the things which the Yanks have done in less than thirty days time in their larger operations against the Germans, have been to capture more than 20.OO0 prisoners, villages and ad- free over forty-fiv- e advanced to an average depth of ten miles. The advances were made un der many difficulties too as the land was hilly, covered with deep ravines and woods. And another thing, they had to pass through four of Germany's best organized systems of trenches, which they did. and were stubbornly resisted all the way. Guns And Emeny Machines. Another big accomplishment of the Yanks during those thirty days, was the capturing of 137 big guns, great stores of ammunition and war materials including locomotives and motor cars. Since Sept. 26, they have fired more than 2.500.000 shells, sometimes 150,000 shells were fired during the st m magazine devoted to the interest of the U. S. Army Base Hospital at Camp Wheeler. Ga. It was noted with pride that a Breckinridge county man, Capt. Lon II Moremen, formerly of Irvington. is business manager of the magazine and one of the items under the "Local ites" heading reads thus: "The oldest inhabitants now, are. Major Wheat and Capt. Moremen. in order of seniority of arrival in 1917. Their year in camp was up last month." First Xmas Labels Arrive. Washington, Oct. 28. The first of the Christmas parcel labels designed to facilitate the shipment of holiday boxes to the more than 2,000,000 soldiers now in France have relched this country. Inmaking this anounce- y ment the Red Cross said relatives of soldiers now overseas probably will receive these labels in the course of a few days and should arrange to prepare the Christmas boxes with out delay. The boxes, with complete instructions regarding the articles which may be sent, may be obtained without charge at Red Cross chapters or branches after November 1. Only one package for each soldier will be accepted by the War Department. Every man in the expedition-aryforce- s has received a label and has been directed to send it to the person in the United States from whom he wishes to receive a Christtnis p ircel. Parcels that do not carry tnis label will not be accepted and none will be accepted after November 20. New Draft Men To Be Called Shortly. Washington, Oct. 30. Men of the new draft ages will first be mobilized in large numbers early in November under a draft call now in preparation at Provost Marshal General Crowder's office. It calls for the of more than 200,000 men qualified for general military service. They will be furnished in proportionate numbers by every state in the union. Draft calls suspended during October calls probably will be completed have been renewed in sections where the epidemic has moderated, ami of all men under the October calls probobly will be completed before the November quota is started to the cantonments. DR. CLARK CALLED TO DAVIESS COUNTY By MR. DUTSCHKE'S day. SALE BRINGS GOOD PRICES Prominent Stock Raisers Of The County Attended Baird Auctioneer Altho it rained a steady downpour during the moring, the afternoon cleared off bright and clear, and the sale of Mr. Julius Dutschke's stock on his river bottom farm at Holt, Kentucky, last Thursday, was as brisk and invigorating as the October af ternoon itself. Mr. Dan Baird, a neighbor of Mr. Dutschke's, and a born auctioneer, cried the sale, and he never let the time lag for a moment. Breckinbridge county's most prominent and well to do farmers and stock raisers were present and they came with a view of buying, as Mr. Dutschke's stock compares with his rich farm lands in quality. After the sale, a supper, the kind that can only be found nowadays on the farmers' table, was served at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Dutschke, and among those who enjoyed the genuine hospitality of this host and hostess were, W. R. Moorman, Sr., Thomas Beard. George E. Bess, Jas. Carman, A. T. Beard, M. D. Beard, Gid Burdette, George leard, Jr., and William Gilbert, J. S. Dejarnette and American Aviators and Anti-cra- ft gufis have brought down 230 enemy machines and 23 enemy balloons since the latter part of September. There are over 40,000 engineer troops working day and night rebuilding shell shattered roads, using crushed rock from the villages destroyed by the German shells.

The engineers had terrible times in building bridges over roads in the Argome where the Germans had fastened hundreds and hundreds of yards of barbed wire from tree to tree and it was impossible to cut it.

When things are obvious, people keep looking for mysteries behind them. So it is with the packing business. The mere size of Swift & Company confuses many. Because their imaginations are not geared up to scale, they believe there must be magic in it somewhere some weird power. Some Swift & Company is just like any other manufacturing business run by human beings like yourself; it takes in raw material on the one hand and turns out a finished product on the other. Swift & Company keeps down the "spread," or the expense absorbed between raw and finished material, to as ( If it didn't low a figure as possible. it would be put out of business by others who do.) How much Swift & Company pays for the raw material, and how much it gets for the finished product, depends upon conditions which Swift & Company does not control. It depends entirely upon how much people want the finished product, and how much raw material there is available to make it from. The profits of Swift & Company amount to less than one cent per pound on all meats and less than one-fourt- h of a cent on beef.
