Barbour and County Pood Director Charles L. Davidson. The specific orders made up at the conference are designed to correct inequalities attendant upon the observance of tbe first holiday last week.

Chairman John G. Barbour and his associates expressed the conviction that public sentiment is in favor of a general closing, as requested by- Fuel. Administrator H. A. Garfield, and 'the hope that, £or patriotic reasons, if for no other, there will-be a hearty response. "In bespeaking the cooperation of the community, the fuel committee trusts that it will have the support of aTl good citizens, and that this support will result in a concerted effort on. their part to discourage-any . at-'.. ,t«rApt'.t9^violate:theJ3-a'rl6uB ? i»rovisidns. ; of the closing orde 1 -.

Tlie following statement was issued by Charles L. Davidson, Fayette county food administrator: " 'All bakeries, wholesale groceries, retail groceries and meat markets may remain open on Mondays until 12* o'clock, noon, and shall confine all their son, James, last evening an- sa ] es to articles of food alone' Bouncing the safe arrival in France | ..
