Washington, Jan. 12.-Enforced food conservation in restaurants
and extension of anti-hoarding regulations to make them apply
to the household, are included in the plans of the food administra-
tion for creating a larger export surplus of food for the allies.
This was revealed tonight in a statement by Food Administrator
Hoover, setting forth that the allies are in need of an additional 75,-
000,000 to 90,000,000 bushels of wheat and that they have asked
America to double meat exports. Only by further saving, Mr.
Hoover declared, can the food be shipped.
There is no need for rationing in America, is Mr. Hoover's opin-
ion, and with the supplementary regulations there will be no short--

Guardsman Killed at Camp Wheeler;
7 Killed, 25 Injured in Wreck-
ed Cowarts, Ala.
Washington, Jan. 11.-Swept by wind,
rain, sleet, and with a tornado taking
toll of life and property in parts of
southern Georgia and Alabama, the,
South tonight was in the grip of its
worst storm of the winter. Only spas-
modic wire communication was possi-
ble with the larger cities and from
them came reports that outlying dis-
tricts were the heaviest hit.
One Man Killed
Camp Wheeler, near Macon, Ga.,
where Georgia, Alabama, and Florida
national guardsmen are training, was
struck by a tornado late in the day.
Meager reports said one man had been
killed and the corral of the 122nd in-
fantry wrecked. This information was
brought to Macon by a taxi cab driver
who left Camp Wheeler while the
storm was raging.
The same blow struck the state fair
grounds where a circus was winter-
ing, and animals there were reported
on a rampage.
Seven Killed, 25 Injured
Montgomery, Ala., reported that rail-
way officials there had been advised
that seven persons were killed and 25
injured by a tornado which virtually,
wrecked the little town of Cowarts,

so Education Now
ed, .
o Coming Into Own
tes, "The value of education is being
ing demonstrated now as never before,"
declared Dean John R. Effinger, in
'his talk on "Various Ideals in Edu-
its cation" last night at the meeting of
lent the Cosmopolitan club in Lane hall.

their being so effectively educated
along these lines.
"There is a great temptation, how-
ever, in education," said Dean Effinger,
"to overestimate the importance of
the technical as compared with the
idealistic or cultural training." He
stated that many people consider an
education merely a tool with which
to achieve a material success in the
world, while the true object of an ed-
ucation is in reality far above this
It is the object of a cultural train-
ing, according to the speaker, to de-
velop sincerity in men and make them
feel that they have a duty toward
their fellow men, rather than that
they are superior to them. "An edu-
cation is not absolutely necessary to
make a living," he said, "but it is es-
sential to the man who aspires to a
complete enjoyment of life."
Following the talk, M. Uychara of
the School of Music gave a piano solo
and A. M. Elkind, '19E, gave several
mandolin selections. The program
closed with the singing of Michigan
songs by the entire club.
Griffins, upper class all-campus
honorary society, initiated 10 men
yesterday afternoon. The initiates'
were: W. R. Atlas,.'18, B. A. Swaney,
'18, O. P. Lambert, '19L, Chester Mor-
rison, '19, Angus Goetz, '19, Hugo
Braun, '19L, Roy Fricken, '19, J. H.
Emery, '19, Gerald Gabriel, '18, and
Gerald Nye, '19. After"the initiation
a dance was held at the Ann Arbor
country club.

(Chas. R. Osius, Jr.)
All stores in the city will be closed
evenings after Jan: 14 if the campaign
Jging conducted by the Ann Arbor
Business men's association is suc-
cessful. Written agreements are be-
ing circulated among the merchants
whereby they agree to close early ev-
ery day to conserve fuel.
Stores will be expected to close one
hour earlier every day, with the ex-
ception of grocery stores and meat
markets, which will be asked to close
a half hour earlier than usual. The
movement is meeting with hearty ap-
proval and it is expected that the rule
will be enforced over the entire city.
.Coal Shortage Continues
Coal in the city is growing more
scarce daily and the 'orders flowing
into the police department are increas-
ing proportionately. A locs l dealer
turned over 20 tons to the police yes-
terday, but it was all ordered before
arrangements could be made to have
it delivered, according to Acting Chief
of Police O'Brien. The cars shipped
from Port Huron and Toledo have
not been heard from.
Wood Growing Popular
Wood is growing more popular, and
people all over the city are laying
in supplies as rapidly as deliveries
can be made. Dealers have a consid-
erable quantity of wood on hand and
no wood shortage is expected. The
people who feel the famine most are
those who use stoves. The nut coal
required for the average base-burners
is not available and wood cannot be
used in them.
Eight-Hour Day Not Expected
The eight-hour business day soon
tc be enforced in Detroit will proba-
bly not be ordered in Ann Arbor, ac-
cording to Fuel Administrator Junius
E. Beal. No word has been received
from the state administrator govern-
ing the matter, and Mr. Beal does not
believe the move will be necessary.
"The merchants have taken it upon
themselves to conserve in every pos-
sible way," said Mr. Beal yesterday,
"and I don't think it will be necessary
to order a shbrter day."
It is absolutely essential that ship-
ments of .coal be received within a
few days, or some of the industries
'v ill be forced to close. The amount
received earlier in the week was not
sufficient to keep them running any
reasonable length of time.
London Meat Situation Relieved.
London, Jan. 11.-The meat situa-.
tion, which has been acute during the
last week, was greatly improved to-
day. Large consignments of beef and
mutton reached Smithfield last night,
and all retailers applying received
supplies this morning.

Dr. Franklin is at present vice-pres-

Ann Arbor Freight Yards
Is Claim
Movements of fuel and other vital
necessities are being seriously hamp-
ered by congestion of loaded freight
cars in large cities and in railroad
terminals, and after Jan. 21 the gov-
ernment is to levy heavy charges up-
on manufacturers who do not prompt-

yesterday from W. A. McAdoo, director
general of railroads, by the Ann Arbor
Civic association.

it is the duty of the manufacturers
and business men to see that freight
is removed from cars assigned to them
at the first opportunity and that cars
leaving yards be filled to their capac-

Central office say that the local man-

loading their cars and that there are
no cars standing idle in the yards,
