PLAN TO MAN ALL OVERSEAS
SHIPPING WITH NAVAL CREWS
- Washington, Nov. 30.-Fifteen thous-
and officers and men of the American
merchant marine are to be taken un-
der a plan the government is working
out today, to man all transatlantic
shipping with naval crews.
Execution of this project, it was
pointed out, will provide merchant
vessels with crews better trained and
disciplined, with the result that sail-
ings in the submarine zone can be
made with less risk to valuable ton-
nage and cargoes.
Formal ratification of the proposal,
which already has the indorsement of
Secretaries Baker and Daniels, is ex-
pected next week.

NORAY FEELS IEFFECT
oF US FOOD EMBARGO
UNCLE SAM'S ACTION CAUSES
NATION TO FEEL PINCH
OF HUNGER
Christiania, Nov. 30.-Since the Am-
erican embargo was imposed, the food
situation in Norway has grown from
bad to worse. So long as the commer-
cial relations were maintained between
Norway and the United States, the
import of food was sufficient to meet
the consumers'- demand. Except for
the steadily increasing prices every-
thing could be bought as before, the
only form of rationing being sugar.
This could be bought only from gov-
ernment stores, two pounds at a time.
As a matter of fact, the government,
and especially the food minister, had
been too'optimistic. When cablegrams
from Washington stated that the Am-
erican government was going to plac
an embargo on different articles, the
answer from the Norwegian govern-
ment to the press, asking how this
would affect Norway, was that it
meant only that Norway should guar-
antee that nothing would be re-export-
ed to Germany, and then Norway would
get all she needed..
Uncle Sam Means Business
During the last two months it has
dawned on the government that Un-
cle Sam means business and that Nor-
way cannot expect special privilege
as a favorite friend.
After the importation of grain and
flour stopped, the government estab-
lished a grain monopoly. Farmers
are allowed to sell their crops only to
the government and at a fixed price.
The nation is to be put on bread or
flour rations. The share of each per-
son will be 25 pounds of bread or 16
pounds of unsifted flour per month.
Mix Potatoes with Dough
Moreover, instructions have been is
sue to mix potatoes with all bread
dough. Under such an arrangement,
with this year's crop and the import-
ed grain in storage, Norway has
enough to last until February or
March. It is hoped here that the Unit-
ed States will grant export licenses
for some of the grain already bought
by the Norwegian government and im
porters.
No Sugar Produced
For sugarNorway is entirely de-
pendent on import, as none is produc-
ed here. Yet the consumption of sug-
ar is still unlimited and candy factor-
ies turn out as much candy as before.
No sugar card is in use here as in
Sweden.,
The scarcity of fat is felt more every
day. The majority of the population
has been using margarine instead of
butter, but now that the raw stuffs for
this product are not permitted to be
exported from the United Staes, the
margarine production is reduced every
week. Grocers have been forced to
put their customers on an allowance,
no person receiving more than a pound
at a time. Norway is facing a general
fat shortage and the nation will have
to be rationed.
Fuel Rations
The people are already on fuel ra-
tions, except those who can afford to
pay the prices for coal and coke im-
ported from Great Britain.
The scarcity of other products is
widely felt. Last summer an ordin-
ance was passed puting motor vehic-
les and motor craft on gasoline ra-
tions. The result was that automo-
biles were used more freely than ever.
The American embargo again forced

the authorities to action. The sale of
gasoline for privatetcars was pro-
hibited, beginning Oct. 1. Taxicabs
were permitted to. operate only from
6 o'clock in the morning to 8 o'clock
in the evening. Now the streets in the
city are as quiet and free from noise
as they were 20 years ago.'
Kerosene Supply Low
The supply of Kerosene is becoming
low, with no prospect of replacement.
For fishermen this is disastrous, as all
along the coast they are using kero-
sene-driven boats. The people in the'
cities using oil for light and cooking
are hard hit. Each family is allowed
only two gallons per month.
Everybody asks: "Why does not the
government entirely stop exports if
thereby more favorable importing con-
ditions can be established with the
Allies?" No official answer is given.
Bomb Earns Money For Red Cross
London, Nov. 30.-A farmer in a vil-
lage in southeast England raised $1,-
000 for the Red Cross through the
agency of a Zeppelin bomb which fell
in one of his fields. Thousands of peo-
ple came from snearby towns to see
the crater, which is described as "big
enough to put a house in." The farmer
charged each visitor a small admis-
sion fee, and turned the proceeds over
to the local Red Cross.

Chvoice Bits From
College Lxchange~s
Lack? of material has prevented the
Glee club of the University of Syra-
cuse from organizing this year. The
leaders of activities are not allowing
organizations to continue unless they
are likely to be successful.
No intercollegiate matches will be
played at Harvard this winter. All
proceeds of contests will go to war
relief funds. Hockey will be the pre-
dominating sport.
War taxes will be placed on the
larger parties at the University of
Kansas. It was decided by the Student
council this week to impose a 10 per
cent tax on the law scrim and junior
prom, and a 50 per cent tax on the
soph hop, the taxes to be based on the
net profits.
It is the opinion of the council that
parties should not be discarded this
year, but that the expense should be
cut down and the tradition of these
social affairs remain intact.
Hereafter all non-athletic activities
will be under the supervision of a
board of supervision for non-athletic
organizations which has just been.es-
tablished at the Princeton university.
The board's permission must be ob-
tained before any such society is form-
ed and before any performances are
given.
The student court will meet for the
first time at the University or Utah,
to deal with 28 student law breakers.
Nine engineers were summoned for
breaking into university property and
borrowing a cow for their amu3 rient.
It is charged that they .compelled the
cow to maintain a record-breaking
gait from the university to the down-
town section with, the result that her
health was impaired.
"Huntaman," is the name of a so-
ciety formed by some of the girls of
the University of Nebraska. The aim
of the organization is to find a man
to take the place of one leaving the
training camps, so that there will al-
ways be a sufficient number in train-
ing.

17 3-5 per cent against more than 70
per cent in equally severe cases which
were not treated with the serum.
When Dr. Kling began his experi-
ments a severe epidemic of scarlet
fever was raging in Stockholm. Blood
was taken from convalescent patients
who were otherwise healthy, and was
allowed to stand until serum had sep-
arated from the other blood constitu-
ents. This was administered intraven-r
ously, by the use of 20 cubic centiliters
for small children, and up to 50 or 60
for adults.
Dr. Kling said he treated a total of
237 cases, all of which were of a vio-
lent nature. The total mortality was
42. The mortality among 91 equally
severe cases not receiving the serum
treatment, he said, was 64.
The serum treatment had no effect
on nephritis.
GOVERNOR WHITMAN ADVOCATES
DEEPENING OF HUDSON RIVER;
Miami, Fla., Nov. 30.-The impor-
tance and desirability of deepening
the Hudson river to permit deep-sea'
craft to ply between New York and
Albany, a distance of 150 miles, was
emphasized by Governor Charles S.=
Whitman of New York, in an address
before the Atlantic Deeper Waterways
association convention here yesterday.
Governor Whitman said that the
amount of foreign commerce which an-
nually passed through Albany by rail
on its way to and from western points,
exceeded 14,000,000 tons, and that, up-
on the completion of the new barge
canal, combined rail and water facil-
ities would more than double this ton-
nage.
"If some of this foreign commerce
could be intercepted and transferred
before reaching the port of New
York," he said, "it would permit that
port to handle more cheaply and rap-
idly, the domestic commerce neces-
sary to feed, clothe, and shelter its
rapidly increasing population."

New York, Nov. 30.-The menu card
