DISPOSAL OF APPLE SURPLUS
CONFRONTS CONTINENT GROWERS
Australia Offers 50,000,000 Pounds of
Jam and 8,500,000 Apples to
Melbourne, Australia, Oct. 30.-
Australia has a surplus of apples to
offer the world's market in competi-
tion with the American fruit.
How to dispose of it is one of the
probemstconfronting the government.
At the request of fruit growers, Prime
Minister William M. Hughes has an-
nounced that American apples may
be imported in Australia only during
November and December.
Australian fruit growers are relying
upon the far eastern markets to ab-
sorb the apple surplus but have been
somewhat discouraged by the informa-
tion that the United States authori-
ties also are inquiring whether or not
the far east cannot be made a market
The surplus of fruit in Australia is
due largely to the lack of shipping
Australia has about 50,004,000
pounds of jam, and 8,500,000 of evap-
orated apples to offer to the rest of the
world. The British government has
agreed to take 12,000,000 pounds of
jam in the first quarter of 1918. The
Australian authorities are urging the
British government either to accept
the whole 50,000,000 or to offer to the
United States what Britain does not
want or cannot take for its own use.

CUSTER MEN OPEN
"Y FUND DRIVE
$1,500,000 for Military Association
Work in Camps Asked by State
Officers and privates of Camp Cus-
ter will lend their efforts in a cam-
paign which opens this week to se-
cure $1,500,000 for military Y. M. C. A.
work in the state. Major-General
Dickman has expressed his approval
of the plan, and sanctioned the propos-
ition of sending the privates to all
parts of the state to speak.
Mr. A. L. Parker, camp secretary
of the Y. M. C. A., will begin the drive
at Grand Rapids and Saginaw.
Soliciting funds will take place
sometime early next month. The need
of more huts in Camp Custer to car-
ry on the service of the association is
imperative, according to the officers.
About one-third of the 15,000 sold-
iers in camp attend the Y. M. C. A.
Sunday services and an equal number
are to be found at the masses of the
Knights of Columbus. Nearly 2,500
are away from the camp on leave and
an additional 2,500 do not attend
church on Sunday.
Heat and light are furnished to the
Y. M. C. A. for its buildings, by the
government, free of charge. Most of
the structures were erected at a total
cost of $80,000. The running expenses
and salaries of the workers are con-
siderable, and it is for this reason that
the association has launched the cam-
paign for more support to better
maintain these soldiers' club rooms,
and to build more.
Plans for the University's part
in the soldiers camp fund are
being made and will be announced
later, according to a statement issued
by one of the committee members.

The persons living within the cen-
tral countries are outnumbered more
than seven times by anti-Germanic
populations, and the proprtion is
swelled even higher if consideration is
taken of the populations of the 10.
countries which have broken relations
with the central powers. Germany's
enemies now include nearly all the
white and yellow races, and the phys-
ical resources of about half the world's
area are mobilized against the forces
of Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bul-
garia and Turkey.
It is pointed out that, of the world's
total population of 1,691,000,000 about
1,342,000,000 live under the flags of
the central powers' open enemies in
the war. About 40,000,000 inhabit the
countries which have broken relations,
and 132,000,000 are neutral, while the
population of Germany and her allies
are about 177,000,000.
Of the world's total area of 57,000,-
000 square miles, 27,000,000 are under
anti-German domination, while the
Germanic allies control only 5,000,000.
