MORE MEAT AND RAIN BEING
EXPORTED TO
ALLIES
Washington, Dec. 7. - Statements
made in Chicago papers to the effect
that meatless and wheatless days were
beginning to show up as a failure, have
called forth a denial from Food Ad-
ministrator Hoover.
"Results from meatless days have
for the first time created a sufficient
supply of meat to allow us to comply
partially with the quantities request-
ed by the Allies for shipments during
December," said Mr. Hoover. "It
should be a matter of satisfaction to
the entire American people that their
devotion in this matter now enables
us to resume our duties to the Allies
in this respect, and our endeavors
should in no instance be relaxed."
Wiea, Surplus to Allies
As to wheat, Administrator Hoover
said that the United States has ex-
ported already its entire surplus to the
Allies, and that in order to have,
enough to last until the next harvest
it is absolutely- necessary that conser-
vation be continued.
The statments circulated that the
saving is slowing uip and failing of its
object are attributed to opposersof
the fast-day who are interested in
seeing meatless and wheatless days
abolished. They are claimed to rep-
resent various interests, probably the
large meat packers, who would like
to see the price of meat advance. The
stories are branded as "malicious and
unpatriotic."

SECRETARY HOUSTON DESCRIBES
NEEDS OF COUNTRY IN
ANNUAL REPORT
Washington, Dec. 7.-With record
crops grown this year, the nation's
farm and livestock production must
be stimulated to a still higher efficien-
cy during the coming 12 months
if domestic demands and the needs of
the Allies are to be met adequately,
Secretary Houston says in his annual
report to congress today.
"That the farmers of the nation
have generously responded to the ap-
peals for increased production, and
that much has already been done to
insure a large supply of foods and
feedstuffs," says the report, "justifies
no let-down in their activities or in
those of all agricultural, agencies. On
the contrary, even greater efforts must
be put forth. in the coming months.
Efficiency on Farms
"There must be no breakdown on
the farms, no failure of foods, feed-
stuffs, or clothing. I cannot empha-
size too strongly the urgent necessity
of doing everything possible'to bring
about a still further increase in the
production of all essential commodi-
ties, particularly of the staple crops
and livestock."
Confidence in the ability of the farm-
ers to meet the unusual emergency
caused by America's entrance into the
war is reitterated by the secretary.
Their willing co-operation since April
has been prolific of encouraging crop
increases, he says, and there is no
doubt but that they have a complete
and ready comprehension of the de-
mands to be supplied as the war pro-

turn
Amsterdam, Dec. 7.-Prof. Friedrich
Foerster of the University of Munich,1
whose articles in Swiss newspapers
some two years ago caused much rage
because they arraigned Germany soj
bitterly and yet did not cost him his
undergraduate popularity as the more
"patriotic element" would, have liked,
is back at his old post at the univer-
sity again..,
His return, late this fall, sanctioned1
by the German authorities in face of
the protests of fellow faculty mem-
bers who almost unanimously had dis
approved of his utterances and writ-
ings in Switierland, was permitte4i
chiefly because Professor Foerster had
achieved a, personal popularity with
the students of the university that it
seemed unwise to ignore. Resumption
of his lecture course was conditioned
upon his willingness to avoid political.
topics.
His first appearance on the lecture
rostrum resulted in a scene unique in
German university ~ circles. Cheers,
hand-clapping, and stamping on the
part of his adherents was mingled
with the shouts- of disapproval from
those who objected to his return. Four
times Professor Foerster attempted to
begin speaking, and four times he was
prevented by the uproar. Finally the
majority, consisting of his adherents,
took matters into their own hands, and
torcibly ejected the disturbing ele-
ment, but Professor Foerster himself
gave it up, and in the din slipped out
of the auditorium. When he will at-
tempt to lecture again has not been
announced.
Motor Car Industry Can Help Army
New York, Dec. ?7.-Manufacturing
facilities of the American motor car
industry are sufficiently extensive to
produce most of the materials requir-
ed by an army, with the exception of..
foodstuffs. This conclusion was reach-
ed after a general survey of the indus-
try by Albert Reeves, general manager
of the national automobile chamber of
commerce, in connection with the of-
fer of the manufacturers to serve the
government.

"As it becomes more obvious that
the surest way to force a righteous
peace is to employ effectively all the
resources of the nation, the farmers
-will increasingly put forth their
strength, send their sons to fight at
the front, and see to it that neither
this nation nor those with which we
are associated lack anything in the
way of materials for food and cloth-
lug.

Figures Not Available
While the precise figures for meat,
poultry, dairy products, and vegetable
oils are not yet available, the secre-
tary estimates that the quantity -of
these commodities is greater than for
1915 and 1916.
Live Stock and Feedstuffs
"In considering th'e whole meat sit-
uation, it should be kept in mind that
there is a close relationship between
the production of live stock and the
supply of feedstuffs, and that for more
than a year past there has been aela-
tive shortage of grains and of forage.
The large production of these neces-
saries during the present crop season
should conduce to more satisfactory
conditions for the producers of live
stock and should, other things ,being
equal, tend to bring about an increase.
"But with the destruction of live
stock in Europe and the great de-
mands from there for meat and fats,
with consequently increased exports
from this country, it is clear that the
supply will not be adequate for the
domestic needs and for those of the
nations with which we are associated
in the war.
Seriousness of Situation
"The mere statement that the popu-
lation has steadily increased in this
country-the gain in the 10 years
from 1908 to 1917 being 13,000,000-
with an absolute decrease in the live-
stock for the same period, would suf-
ficiently emphasize the seriousness
of the situation if conditions were nor-
mal and the, demand for meats and
fats were not so urgent."
The report announces the organiza-
tion of a special agency to ascertain
to what extent the government safely
can permit the use of national forest
ranges for cattle grazing. A severe
winter and late spring in the West
this year induced the opening of the
forest reserves to the animals much
earlier than usual, and in 1918 the
emergency use of the ranges for graz-
ing purposes is to be much extended.
Extension Service
Material development of native ag-
ricultural resources, the report says,
is expected to follow complete organ-
ization of the department's extension
service. Equipped with an appropria-

rush is already on.
