OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.,-The
fifty-fifty rule covering the sale and
consumption of wheat flour and sub-
stitutes is recinded, effective Septem-
ber 1, and rule No. 114 in its place,
80-20 regulation is ordered by the
United States Food administration.
The official telegram from Herbert
Hoover to C. B. Ames, federal food
administrator for Oklahoma,
“The recent careful survey by the
Food Administrators of the United
States, France, England and Italy, of
the food resources of the 220,000,000
people fighting against Germany,
shows that to maintain enough sup-
plies and the necessary reserve against
disaster there must be maintained in
all these countries a conservation of
wheat flour during the coming year.
It has been agreed that the wheat
bread of the all shall contain twenty
per-cent of other grains than wheat
and it is just that we should bear our
share in this saving and our bread
should be at least Identical with thoie
who are suffering more greatly from
the war than ourselves. Distribution
and transportation circumstances in
the United States render it necessary
to rely very largely onvoluntary ac-
tion in our homes to enforce this mix-
ture. The Victory bread so made is
wholesome and there is no difficulty
in its preparation. We desire to em-
phasize that the mixtures are for
wheat and bread and the saving of
wheat flour but are not intended to
displace the large use of com bread.
We must use the mixture with wheat
flour in addition to our normal con-
sumption of corn bread.”
NOTICE TO FRIENDS.
Since I am expecting to be ordered
to report for duty for Uncle Sam, some
time about October 1, 1918, it is your
duty to see me and settle your account
before that time, don’t wait till then
as I didn’t wait when you called me
for sickness. I need to make arrange-
ments early, for the care of my wife
and children, as I may have to be gone
a few years from them helping to
fight your battles.

APACHE'S RED CROSS
CARNIVAL A SUCCESS
Apache's Red Cross Carnival which
7as staged here Thursday. Friday and
Saturday of last week was a grand
success from every stand point., and
there was some doubt as to whether
it would be a success as an entertain-
ment as nothing of the kind had ever
been given here before or anywhere
else for that matter, it being entirely
original with the Committees in con-
trol of the affair, but that doubt was
removed and the crowds which attend-
ed the carnival during the three days
demonstrated that Apache and sur-
rounding community were 100 per-
The march and procession of the
Apache* school children Friday after-
noon on the main street with the line
of march headed first by Dr. Samuel
Blair, hearing a largo American flag,
then the Fourteenth Field Artillery
Band from Ft. Sill, consisting of 50
pieces then the home guards, followed
by the school children and their res-
The hand furnished some excel-
lent music Friday and Saturday, as
they did not reach here until Friday
The community Sale which was
held Saturday afternoon, with Col.
E. F. Herriff as auctioneer, was the
biggest success from the financial
stand point, as the various articles
which were donated by the patriotic
people of Apache and surrounding
community were sold to the highest
bidder, and each buyer paid big prices
fdr everything offered for sale, as
they knew they were giving it to a
good and great cause.
The total net proceeds over and
above all expenses of the sale and
money raised from other sources
amounted to the nice sum of $850.00.
This amount goes into the treasury
of the Apache Branch of the Ameri-
can Red Cross.
Eeach and every one of the vari-
ous committees devcrve.much credit
for the great success of the carnival
and especially does Mr. Carl Graus-
lund, who devoted his entire time for
several days before the carnival and
then worked diligently during the
three days assisting in making it a
grand success, and especially in look-
ing after the entertainment features
of the event.
The various committees ask us to
extend sincere thanks to each and
everyone who so patriotically assisted
in making the first Apache Red Cross
Carnival a success.
Twenty-seven “wee tots", friends
of little Anna Leo Grauslund were
entertained at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Carl Grauslund Wednesday even-
ing from 4 to 6 o’clock, in honor of
Little Anna Lee’s third birthday.
Many beautiful little presents were
presented to her by the little guests.
A cake was placed on the table in
the center of the spacious dining
room and three candles were then
placed on the cake, then lighted and
the shades drawn, making the room
dark, then ice cream cones were ser-
ed to all present after which the cake
was cut and all the little fellows did
ample justice to the cake and the
large delicious plumbs which were
served with the cake.
After the refreshment part of the
entertainment was over, all repaired
to the yard and were arranged for a
kodak picture, and this was the great-
est task that confronted the enter-
Various games were played during

RENO DIXON NOT DEAD AS
STATED IN MESSAGE
A messege came here Monday to
Mr. and Mrs. Noah Dixon, which had
become very badly jumbled in transit,
and stated that their son, Reno Dixon
who is in the Navy, had died Satur-
day, throwing the parents and his
many friends in sorrow, but after they
had sent another message back to
their daughter in Indiana for further
details regarding the death, then the
error in the message was discovered.
Therefore, Reno Dixon is not dead but
is away on a furlough visiting with
relatives in Indiana.
