It means a perfect chain of Boiling Point Fractions commencing at about 95 degrees Fahrenheit and continuing without a gap to beyond 400 degrees—each fraction vaporizing at a different temperature. It gives smooth acceleration—an abundance of power and all the speed your engine is capable of developing. That Is RED CROWN It is the best gasoline made regardless of price—it is always the same no matter where you get it—and you can get it everywhere.

In spite of all that has been said on tho subject' - ' Chairman Hurley of the Shipping Hoard, directing America's gigantic building program, recently asked cabinet officers and heads of the Bpeclal war branches of the government, 'What do ships tnecn to you?'" Here are some of the replies he received: Secretary of. War Baker. "Kach new ship added to our transport serv- Ice means more American soldiers oh the fighting front, more American pol- dlers in training behind the firing line, more supply workers to make secure the .men in camp and trench, more doctors and nurses to care for the wounded, more rood and clothing and .comforls for our forces abroad, and more vital assistance to our asso. elates In the war. "Ships then are Indispensable. The Shipbuilders have indeed done well. But they will do better. Tho army will be ready when the ships are rendy." Secretary Daniels: "Tho chief business or the Navy during this war has been lb Iteep safe (he road to France. We need "more ships and every man who drives two more rlvits where ono has been driven before Is a public benefactor." What Hoover Says. Pood Administrator Hoover: "The shortage of ships has placed upon us the responsibility of supplying the major Rhare of all foodsturts needed to maintain tho millions of soldiers and civilians who are bearing" tho brunt of Germany's assaults. "Until we are building ships fast enough to supply all war demands, wc cannot hope to be relieved of tho responsibility for utmost conservation. In this year's crops, we very properly see the height of our war-time food production. "Until the world's tonnage Is sufficient to allow freer use of vessels, European supplies must be maintained largely from what can bo spared In the United States. The measure of our service may be lightened only in direct ratio to the increase in marine shipping facilities." Fuel Administrator Garfield: "The Fuel Administration must depend on ships to supply coal to New England and tho great section of our country at the end of the Qreat Lakes. With every additional ship that puts to sea, the fuel requirements of the government are enlarged. The total coal requirements for ocean going ships Including the NaTy have grown to sixteen million tons by July, 191S. The increased requirement is already one hundred percent, beyond that of last year. As the program of the Shipping Board gains Impetus, the responsibilities of the Fuel Administration are correspondingly enlaged." .{ Chairman McCormick of the War Trade Board: ."Regulation of our for- elgn^ trade, and no restriction is the essentlal-misaloi^of'the Board. Construction of* "American stilps in large quantities means to us the opportunity to llconse freely the Importation pf all requirod material of foreign origin. It means the possibility of free export of American commodities to help pay for. imports and to redress the adverse balance of trade in many foreign countries. Adequate American tonnage means an opportunity for full development of the trade possibilities between the peoples of this hemisphere opened up in consequence of the war and that friendship and understanding- which commercial Intercourse does so much to promote." Postmaster General BurleBon: "In the maintenance of the foreign mail servico, shipping is an absolute necessity. Commercial interests in the United States suffer whenever there is a lack of mall futilities. At this time, the postoffice department 1 B availing Itself of the opportunities afforded by naval vessels to carry mails to foreign ports to which there Is a lack of carolers of other kinds and the addition of vessels of the Shipping Board will surely give the United States tho advantage in mail transportation which at no other time has the servico enjoyed." Secretary Lane Speaks. Secretary Lane: "Shops mean to us tbo development of the minerals of the United States instead of Uielr importation from foreign countries- making America Eeir-aufficlent Industrially," ; Chairman Baruch: ,"The War Industries Board Btands as, a point of Bupply for our three great war factors •—The War Department, the Navy department and the Shipping Board. Of equal Importance, it is charged with the duty of answering the needs of the civilian population. In each of these enterprises ships are vital essentials.' Secretary MCAdoo: "the ono thing most needed no* by America's soldiers and sailors Is ships, it Is the men working In the shipyards upon whom the nation must rely to build these ships in time. What a splendid privilege and opportunity these mon have to Bave democracy. What a fearful calamity to the world it would be if fhey fall to turn these ships out in time." Secretary Redfleld: "It Is up to the shipping • board, first, that the army shall have Its fill of men and food ana munitions and then may It come speedily that there may be freedom of the seas for American commerce to neutral lands. The ultimate task, then, beyond the Immediate one, Is to sot tho commerce of America free." Secretary Wilson: "Faithful, steady, conscientious workers must be discovered and turned over to the shipbuilding industry without delay. The hope Of Ihe war depends on this. One hundred and thirty plants In twentj'-clghl states on both coasts and the Great Lakes are now engaged In shipbuilding and with more than one-half of those hnving been developed In two years means a tremendous task for the Department of Labor. The employment exchanges In the various states are working night and day. Mr. Hurley tells us that he will need for this work 1,000 new men a week until be has placed 400,000 laborers at shipbuilding. "To get these men, nearly every Industry must contribute. A ship requires all kinds of labor, and there must bo an enormous educational program, giving thousands of men their first specialized knowledge. It will mean the organization of growing, towns, the building of morals, tho establishment of facilities under government control which should result in stabilizing conditions." BRITISH MARINES OCCUPY SECTION OF THE FRONT These Fellows and tfie American Marines Have Fought Side by Side Several Time. London, Aug. 8—(Correspondence of The Associated Press).—British Marines have taken over a section of the front lino trenches in France, the British Admiralty has officially announced. With British and American Marines now In the line It is Interesting to recall that this Is not the first time that the two forces have fought side by side. , One of the base reliefs of the splendid memorial to the Royal Marino Light Infantry in St. James' I'urfc, tells the story. It shows' an Ainerl- san officer leading a party of British Marines in a gallant attack. Tho text explains that, the, charge took placo on the night of July 2-3, 1900, during the defense or Peking. ; Official records tell more. They relate that tho Chinese had dug n sap leading To within twenty-five yards <",t a barricade held by the Allies and at the end of the sap had built a lower from which they could fire at U)e defenders, it wBf, necessary to capture the tower and the sap and the lorees available were iwenty-flvc British .Marines under Sergeant Murphy, fifteen American Marines commanded by Captain (now Colonel) Myers, and fifteen Russian Marines under Captain Viou- blcffsky. Captain Myers took command of the whole force and decided that the Anglo-American party should attack tho tower. A flank attack was to bo madB on tho barricade by the Russians. . At a given signal tho party swarmed over the American barricade. ' The ISngllsh and Americans, with Captain Myers at their head, entered tho tower, to find It unoccupied. They followed along tho sap where Captain Myers was severely wounded In t,he kneo and was disabled. Sergeant Murphy at once assumed command. After a hand to hand fight, lu which the small body of Russian Marines played a gallant part, the enemy retired leaving twenty-five of their dead. With very natural pride the sculptor responsible for the memorial proposed to depict a British officer leading tho uttack but tho Royal Marine Light Infantry would not hear to this and for a twofold reason; they insisted that tho memorial should be historically accurate and at tho same time they wished to show their admiration for Captain Myers. Flour should be sifted Just before used in making measurements.
