She is Beautiful has a wonderful voice and is the most popular girl in Nugget City. Helen befriends another girl in the resort Myrtle Cadby whose husband a i expanding to meet Public needs tiie Packer is a purveyor of foods. Largely depend a ent on him Are the producer the retailer and the consumer. The Fanner looks to the Large packing concern to provide outlets for what he raises. The housewife relies upon the Packer for an important part of her daily food Supply. Retailers expect prompt service and regular deliveries. Thousands of workmen Are Given gainful employment. Of All Industrial undertakings none is so closely Allied to the Comfort and Security of the nation. To meet these responsibilities successfully makes Large scale operation imperative. For in order to buy from the grower whenever he is ready to Bell Armour must have a National Market to distribute foods everywhere. And conversely to make food supplies certain Armour must be Able to buy in Many producing centers. Serving both producers and Consumers it is evident that such a business must be conducted fairly and beneficially to All. In no other Way can its existence be justified. In no other Way could it have thrived. But to carry out its uses fully the responsibilities of the business must be met by the responsibilities of those it serves. In its own interests the Public must give big business the Opportunity to per form the service which is very properly expected of it. With a multitude of problems to be solved in National collecting and distributing a Complex though smoothly working system has been evolved in the Armour organization through the course of years. Each part dovetails in its work with the rest. All Are dependent upon and interrelated with the others. Food plants would be unable to give Stock growers outlets without the Branch houses which Are continually competing for Trade. And neither the producing plants nor the distributing branches could operate on an efficient and economical basis without the modern refrigerator cars directed under a single management which controls their movements. In Short the Armour system is the outgrowth of National needs a system that can give maximum service Only As a whole and that dismembered would fall to live up to the requirements which the country and City Public today demands. Amp Armour accompany Chicago 30/8 temptingly arrayed Are the Mons new fabrics of Spring All the charms of springtime seem to have been captured and incorporated into the exquisite textures and designs of these Lovely materials.

Voile assumes leadership in Spring Wash fabrics the new Wash fabrics for Spring arc lovelier than Ever especially the voiles which i pertinently Parade the patterns which in the past we have Only associated with foulard. Some take smart silk stripes to accentuate the smartness of their Clever patterns. Others choose Dainty pinks blues and greens in solid colors. Either Way they Are wonderfully effective and in close rivalry with sheer Organ Dies and sturdy Gingham for popular favor. Prices Are very encouraging. 7 he Tilden stare
