chased of an Inexperienced munitions man

Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels,
had proved worthless In target practice.
Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin

confirmed tho report that the shells. Instead
of carrying to the target, miles away, had

greatest need of the day Is tho need of
universal military, Industrial and economic
preparedness," declared Frank A. Vander

Bankers' Association here today.
"I once thought you could count universal
military service as an economic waste. I
feel confident In the light of the events of
the last two years that It Is not only a
military necessity of superlative import

Two Italian bootblacks arguing on a
street cornerl Who would pay to see It?
Five years ago two Italian bootblacks
argued so well on a street corner that a
theatrical producer put them on the stage,
where they are now; and people pay to
see It. Arguing proved lucrative to them
nnd that's probably why Clark nnd Verdi,
In nn Italian character sketch at Keith's,
still make t business of arguing In tha
"McAronl Ballad" dialect made Immortal
by "Tom" Daly.
While they were shining shoes on Broad
way Clark and Verdi noted that a certain
group of theatrical men paid them a quarter
for a shine. Rivalry, scrambling and argu
ment followed. The rivalry and scrambling
ended when they were paired and "tried
oh the dog," but they kept on arguing. It

Chicago Flour Men

bakers, who have announced a rise In tho
price of bread to take effect today, Is made
In a statement by a special committee of
the Flour Men's Club.
"When the price of wheat advanced fully
sixty cents a bushel from the nominal aver
ago of other years. It Increased the cost of
flour from $3 to $8.60 a barrel," the state
ment said. "This was due to the shortage
of the wheat crop as evidenced by tho
Government report,whlch shows a short
age of 400,000,000 bushels. Almost every
commodity used In the manufacture ot
bakers" products had advanced materially.
The baker mutt advance the price of bread
to stay In business."
Dealers in Both Products iMeet
and 'Discuss Increase in
While small bakera are reiterating tha
the price of bread must b,e increased to six
cents, there comes a similar story from

Exchange yesterday, In the Chamber of
Commerce rooms, the question of charging
a cent more for each quart of milk was dis
cussed, There was a marked minority op
position to the proposed action and the
meeting adjourned without doing anything
definite. The riembera .will convene again.

confidence -aa to ihelr Intentions.
The discussion of the price of bread came
up at a meeting of tho Philadelphia Master4
Bakers' Association, In Teutonla Hall, 1701
North Woodstock street.
Richard Ryley, a Tacony baker, said the
probable IncrcVue to th housekeeper n the
cost of higher' priced bread would be about
twenty-five cents each week, averaging a
consumption of about two loavea dally.
This Increase, he pointed out, would be
merely a measure to save the bakers frm
failure, and could not compare with the
recent Increases In meats aad prdu.
