The native crop has failed for the
year, large orders from this country,
which have been paid for, are being
held for the allies in France, and the
relief that Russia had promised is lost,
so that the little country is in des-
perate straits.
Food Commandeered b;y . 8.
Before the food law was enacted,
Finland had purchased 50,000 tons of
supplies in this country and had paid
for them, but in the meantime Food
Administrator Hoover commandeered
the whole amount to be sent to the
armies in France. Dr. Ignatius is now
appealing to Washington for these
supplies to be released.c
So far he has not convinced the
government that supplies can be spar-
ed, and all he has been able to get1
from Hoover and the war board ist
sympathy. But he is determined tof
keep up the fight and even go to ther
President if necessary, who has de-
clared that America is fighting for the1
preservation of small nations.
Home Crop Spoiled
"Our food crop was spoiled by early
frosts and prolonged droughts," said1
Dr. Ignatius. "And our government
foresaw the shortage. We placed largec
orders in Canada and the Unitedf
States, but could not get. licenses fromr
the supply committee in Petrograd.t
The committee would not grant a li-
cense but said we could get all thet
wheat and other supplies needed fromE
Russia.1
"Our government then paid to Rus-
sia 60,000,000 Finnish marks, and Fin-.
land was promised deliveries in Aug-.e
ust and September. But the revolu-
tion came and we have got nothing,k
not even our money back. -If we do
not get food quickly, it is impossible

years has been ordered.
His case is interesting not only
cause of the audacity of his work,
because he posed as an American

duce two United States embassies

most got a third. He has been kno

CHRISTMAS CARDS
Last year we sold completely put
vise you to buy early. We have a very

lect and train Swiss agents to be sent
to France, where they were to gather
as much military and political infor-
mation as possible, while Sommers re-
mained in Geneva and kept track of
returning repatriates and obtained all
the information possible. The informa-
tion secured in either way would be
carried to Zurich and sent over into
Germany by underground means.
Somers, however, made a mistake.
He picked the wrong man in his
search for agents. That man, a news
dealer, pretended to agree to his plan,
even accepted money from him, and
then told the police. This informa-
tion led to Sommers' arrest.
