EGALBER VALU
To FARMSINDUBT
Agriculture Department's Reply
to Hyde's Inquiry May
Yield No Results.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 10--(P)-The
department of agriculture's answer,
if any, to Secretary Hyde's inquiry
as to the possible effect of legalized
beer on farm crops may be hypo-
thetical and incomplete.
There are no comprehensive data
on the use of grain in the manu-
facture of liquor prior to prohibi-
tion.
Only one official document, the
department's year book of 1918,
makes any reference to the subject
and that is a bare inch of involved
statistics.
Conclusions Qualified.
Experts upon whom the secre-
tary's request falls frankly say they
can venture no authoritative esti-
mate without basic figures, and that
even if they had them they could
draw only qualified conclusions in
view of the 12 intervening years of
changing farm methods and mar-
kets.I
It appears that the most malt
used for fermented liquors in any
one year before prohibition was
2,770,964,606 pounds; rice, 167,750,-
177 pounds; corn and corn products,
666,401,619; hops, 41,958,753 and
other grains, 204,089,800.
In the manufacture of distilled
spirits, 4,480,588 bushels set the
high mark in any one year for
malt; 32,197 bushels for wheat;
9,874 for barley; 5,873,226 for rye;
33,973,268 for corn; 33,775 for oats
and 268,044,822 gallons for molasses.
The same set of figures indicate
that while the century's highest
production of distilled spirits, al-
most 300,000,000 gallons, occurred in
1917, there were more than 200,-
000,000 gallons produced in 1926and
again in 1929, and that production
was slightly above 195,000,000 gal-
lons in 1930. 1
Million-Gallon Prescriptions.
Of the latter, more than 1,000,000
gallons was reported by permit
holders as having been sold on
physicians' prescriptions.
Federal revenue collected in 1930
was reported at $11,695,267.67 com-
pared with $365,211,252.26 in 1919
on distilled spirits and on ferment-
ed liquor at $100 in 1929 compared
with $117,839,602.21 in 1917. No re-
port of revenue on fermented liquor
was shown for 1930.
It is estimated that 547,664,198
pounds of corn were used in the
manufacture of alcohol in 1930;
763,699 pounds of rye; 19,686,467
pounds of malt and 234,502,783.30
pounds of molasses.
In the manufacture of whisky
186,619 bushels of corn were used;.
194,573 bushels of rye and- 3,651
bushels of wheat.
Almost 1,300,000 gallons of mo-
lasses were used in the manufacture
of rum.

Victor Over Naval
Rebellion in Chile
Taboos Hero Role
SANTIAGO, Chile, Oct. 10.-(A)-
None of this hero stuff for General
Carlos Vergara, who as emergency
minister of national defense led the
successful campaign against the
navy in the recent civil war.
The general has asked the nation
to avoid references to living men as
heroes of the fighting, saying that
only thosetwho died in defense of
the nation rightfully belong in that
category.
Especially has he squelched ef-
forts to praise him. He has pro-
hibited photographers from taking
his picture. w
General Vergara learned about
discipline in Germany.aHe believes
that a soldier should live up to the
very letter of his oath, and has no
use for officers who play politics.
The general is a brother of Colo-
nel Ramon Vergara, chief of avia-
tion, who led the army planes in
the attack on the fleet at Coquimbo
harbor. They are cousins of Juan E.
Montero, vice president ondleave,
-who is a candidate for president.
Chinese Plum Blossoms
Suggested as Memorial
NANKING, Oct. 10.-(P)-Presen-
tation of 10,000 Chinese plum trees
to the United States irn connection
with next year's bi-centenary of
George Washington has been sug-
gested by the Chinese legation at
Washington.
The plum blossom was recently
adopted as China's national flower
because its five petals symbolize the
five groups-Chinese, M a n c h u s,
Mongolians, Mohammedans and Ti-
betans --of which the republic is
composed.
The flower also represents the
five-power constitution devised by
Sun Yat-Sen.

husband, st1l is held as authorities

BIGGE'ST SCHOONE'R
O UWNED BY CHINESE
Largest Sailing Vessel of Type
on Pacific Being Loaded for
Trip After Long Lay-up.
S E A T T L E, Oct. 10.-(P)-The
biggest sailing schooner on the
Pacific ocean, the Vigilant, is an
object of curiosity in Seattle's har-
bor today as it is being loaded to
go to sea again after a long layup.
The V i g il a n t, a five-masted
schooner of 1,603 gross tons,though
built and registered in the United
States, is owned by a Chinese busi-
ness man of Honolulu.
On October 10, when it is towed
to the ocean from here to sail for
Honolulu, it \will be earning a sub-
stantial return on a contract with
the United States navy.
The Vigilant is loading 1,800,000
feet of lumber ana railroad ties
for the United States naval base at
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
In the overseas route to Hawaii
only ships under the American flag
can serve. C. K. Ai, owner of the
Vigilant, keeps the only Chinese
owned vessel in the route.

Marie Sahiin Kegel, administered
poison to him over the period of
five years.
The alleged instances of poison-
ing began in 1926, 'he said. On
many later occasions, the bill as-
serts, she poured a powerful sleep-
iftg potion in drinks which she gave
him. He 'did not learn of the acts,
he said, until Sept. 19 of this year.
