ENDS S-YEAR SIEGE OF CONSTIPATION! "Now as Regular as Anyone!" Says H. C. Durand Here's a sincere, unsolicited letter every disappointed "doser" will ·want to read: "I'm 82 years old, and'tave been constipated over 5 years, going as much an 5 days without a · movement. Pills and laxatives would relieve me only for IJie day I took them. Next day I'd be as bad as c«r. TJirn I tried KEIXOGG'S ALL- BRAN.

Sounds like "magic," doesn't it? Yet KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN really con; and does, get at a common cause of constipation--lack of certain dietary "cellulosic" elements! That's because it is brie of Nature's most effective sources of these elements--which help the friendly colome flora fluff up and prep are the eolojiic wastes for easy. natural elimination. KELLOGG'S ALL-BEAN is not a purgative! Doesn't -work by "sweeping out" I It is simply a gentle-acting, "regulating" food!

Kenneth F. Maxwell, Jr., CO of Company B, 20th Tank Battalion, Armored Division, decided that something special should be done as a result of the unit's fine showing in gunnery contests. So on-Sunday the entire company was served breakfast in bed. Above, Sgt. Charles Micklick, of Pittsburgh, Pa., gets the meal. Patting the pillow into place is S/Sgt. Michael Spinella, of Mt.

Milk Ration in England Is 2 Pints Weekly, Says Letter Woman in City of 9,000 Hasn't Had Shell Egg for-Months Even persons living outside the larger cities in England are rigidly rationed on food, according to a letter received by Mrs. F. A. Cahalan, Rockwell, from a woman in Lichfield, Staffordshire, England. Lichfield had a population of 9,000 before the war. The writer, Mrs. Irene F. Inge, got in touch with Mrs. Cahalan as the result of the radio program, "TransAtlantic Call," broadcast by the Columbia Broadcasting system by short wave to England last fall. Mr. Cahalan was one of those taking- part in the program. "I wonder what sort of Christmas you had," queried Mrs. Inge in her letter. "Ours was the quietest I have known but we had plenty to eat. We had turkey, plum pudding (not so rich as usual, of course) and mince pies. "I have to start from one Christmas to the next collecting a little dried fruit. We.bave to give up points for them and they aren't very plentiful. We have 20 points a month for each ration book, and, as dried fruits are 12 points a pound, you can see that they don't go far. ' : · "Apart from our dried fruit we have to give up points for tinned food, porridge oats, cereals. A tin of first grade salmon takes 32 points! 1 wonder how your rations compare with ours. We have each week with each ration book: Z ounces butter, 4 ounces margarine, 2 ounces lard, ] 4 pound bacon, 3 ounces cheese, Y- pound sugar. ·'Housekeeping h a s b e c o m e quite an art. In spite of this we all look pretty fit. I saved enough sugar out of our ration to make 45 pounds of jam last year (we Out of the bandbox come enchanting head fantasies--hats of saturn straw alive with youth and suggesting that spring is just »7 AO around the corner. ...... I .*fO *EXCLUSIVE WITH US have a lot of fruit) and I haven't used a single saccharine since war started] I weigh out our allowance of sugar each Saturday and that has to last the week am the same with butter and margarine. "I make a pudding for lunch each day so, .as you can imagine I have to be careful with the fats We killed a pig about a month ago so I have about 6 pounds o decent lard which will last for a while. I get thrilled to bits over a bit of extra fat or a tin o furniture polish. It's funny hov values change, isn't it? "The milk ration of 2 pints a week is really the worst privation I think. In the country we fare fare rather better but even then we are very short. 'f haven't had a shell egg for months. We haven't any hens o our own because the feed allowance is so .poor, but I think we shall try Uiis year for some pal- ets. The dried eggs we receive m lease-1 e n d are an absolute God-send. "The meat ration is 1 shilling (about 25 cents) a person. This is /cry little. Pre-war we were usec :o.having large joints. We are no! fond'Of mixed up dishes but we have learned to eat and like al kinds of "strange dishes. "It is fortunate that we have such a large garden. We have ulenty of vegetables and ample fruit so that is a great help. We" always have our meals at home (with the exception of occasions when we visit Birmingham) so we-really live on our-rations. "You are quite right when yon say there is and has been a lo of suffering--the days of the 1940 and 1941 blitzes were something never to be forgotten. But NEVEI ONCE did I hear anyone say tha they thought we should be beaten or talk of giving in. The spirit o our people has been something o which I think we can be jostl; proud. We felt that God would not let troth be utterly lost, al thoueh how near we came to i 1 don't think we really realized at the time; "My husband is head warden for this area and I am post war den (I receive the phone call from the report centre.) In 2 months in the autumn of 1940 w received and sent'out 720 calls in connection with raids! We wer worn out with being up all nigh and working in the daytime. It i pretty horrid to hear the dron of hundreds of enemy plane overhead and wonder if a stray bomb is coming your way. "We used to watch Birmingham (about 25 miles southeast) burn ing from our windows and th house shook with the concussion of the explosions. We had severa hundred bombs fall within th tachfield rural area but fortu nately no one was killed. Th nearest, a 500 pounder, fell abou a mile away--'that shook us,' a they say in the E. A. F."
