Poultry Meeting Here Wednesday Proper Feeding and Care of Poultry Will Be Discussed A meeting of special interest to the poultry growers in Hempstead county will be held al the city hall auditorium, Wednesday, September 20 at 7:45 p. in. f Every one interested in pountry is invited to attend Ihis meeting, as talks will bo made by Jim IrlcAdams, head of Ihe poultry department of the Purina Mills in St. Louis and Bob Calvert, owner and operator of Livestock Rules for County Fair Ordered Relaxed New Regulations Would Increase Exhibits at Less Expense MORE INTEREST SEEN Construction Work Will Begin at Fair Park Next Week In order lo increase the interest in Ihe livestock exhibits at Ihc Hemp- stcad county fair this year, Ihc rigid regulations of last year have been materially relaxed. The executive committee believes that this will not only increase the number of animals exhibited, but will make it less expensive to the owners and fair officials. la Ihc first place, owners of dairy cattle on exhibit will be permitted lo take Ihcm home Wednesday night, thus saving Ihe ma second Irip, but they may leave Ihen on exhibit the balance at the week. Jn the second place, grade cows and breeds of nairy catllc other than Jersey will be accepted for exhibition. This change should result in a large increase in the number of dairy cattle on exhibition. All bulls, however, must either be registered or subject to registration. Beef typo cattle may be entered until Thursday at noon and may be removed Thursday afternoon, but owners are urged to leave them on exhibition until Friday Jiight. Those who expect to enter livestock in the fair arc urged lo" notify the county agent or the superintendent of the division in which he expects to exhibit as early as possible, so that .sufficient pens or coops can be provided. Present indications are (hat there will be many more entries than last year in all livestock departments, which makes it necessary to have this information.

Cotton WAR NCTREAL AID War Use of Cotton Will Damage It in Peace- Tim^ Pursuits By .JOHN T. FLYNN (Written for NEA Service) < NEW YORK — The Man-in-the- Street—and, of course, the Lady-in- thc-Living-Room—very naturally wonder what this war is going to do to them and to Junior. After all, they pay the bills at the grocery store and do the*going-without if there is to be any of that sort of thing—and finally do the necessary fighting if we are to get around to that. Will the war create jobs in America? Will it raise wages? Will it raise prises and thus reduce wages? Give us the start we have been waiting for? Or will it hamper us in business? Raise our taxes? Generally, what i.s it doing to us and what is it likely to do to us? Don't Be' to Hasty an Prosperity Talk The stock market has been belling that we arc going to be prosperous. When Ihc first gun sounded in Poland the market average for fifty sotck was !)7 1-2. Wilhin a comparatively few days it had risen lo Ml. Whcil the war started U. S. Steel was 45. Quickly it soared above 75. But Ihc ordinary citizen owes it to himself not to be swept off his feet by surface indications. He will do well to proceed cautiously in adjusting himself lo his disaster in Europe. No Immediate Effect on Jobs Is it going to make jobs? It most certainly is in some industries. In " — i.iv. *«!•.• n.,3 |,l tUO. 11) others il is most certainly going to decrease jobs. What it will do in the balance i.s not easy to say as yet. But it is a fair estimate that the difference either in a raise or a decline in jobs will not be noticeable for some lime. " This does not mean thai employment will neither rise nor fall for some lime. II means merely that the change whatever it is, will not be so much affected at first by the war. Any rise in business from the war would come from our export trade— the buying of Europe. Europe will buy many things here in large quantities. But there arc also many things which she will cease to buy here. The balance will not be enormus either way at first. For instance, in the last war the — , a increase in exports in the first ye many nuse prices it inere wages, profits Will it raise our(axes Will it create more jobs Weiss Convicted by Federal Jury Four Co-defendants Also Found Guilty of Political Graft NEW ORLEANS, La.— W)— Seymour Weiss, one of the three principal heirs lo the powerful political machine left by ITucy Long, was convicted of mail fraud charges Thursday night by a federal jury.

Those convicted wilh Weiss, New Orleans and New York holel excculive, were Monte E. Hart, contractor Long favored with stale business; Dr. J. M.

France and Kngland Cut Sonic Imports What we must realize now i.s- thai France and England will promptly como into our market with heavy orders for corlain things which they need for war puroses and that, ,-il the same time, they will greatly cur- l.-iil or cut off their imports of other things. For instance, in the first days of the war both France and England issued | decrees lo curtail imports of certain articles. There is a large number of items which no man can import into France or England without a special license. The.se include all sorts of luxury goods and among them are motor cars typewriters, clocks, musical instrument's, sporting I goods, floor coverings, toilel articles and such merchandise. Also sume countries have established limitations on the use of certain goods—such as sheers and pillow slips, lij'.iulkcrchiofs and other cotton and wool goods for wearing appyrcl and household use. Kise and Fall Due in Exports Therefore, what we shall sec in the first year of Ihc war is a V crv marked rise in the sale of certain goods abroad and the decline of others.

Lcche, who resigned because of "ill health," is under indictment on a "hoi oil" charge, and government lawyers said trial of his case was likely to be the next in those being prepared by federal prosecutors who have been investigating stale political affairs jji recent months. Weiss also is under indirtmcnt in this ease, growing out of alleged violation of the Connall.v hot. oil which prohibits production of troleum in exco.ss of state quotas. The jury found (hat (hey were guilty of the fraud charges in connection with the alleged '-double sale" of furniture of the Bicnville hotel in New Orleans for $75.000 to die university after the university had allegedly bought the hotel and its equipment for ?575,000 three years ago to be used a.s a nurses home.
