FOOD RATIONING

Mouse Committee Approves Bill
Granting Further Powers But
Agrees With Hoover That
Measure Does Not Go Far
Enough
WASHINGTON, February :M iAs-
aociatcd press) Coinpnlsorv food ra
tioning win lie necessary in the optn
lon of the house committee mi ngrieul
ture which was expressed in its favor
able report on the hill which ffivefl trt
the President further powers for the
conservation of the nation's food sun
Iiii-. i nr report runner snvs that the
food situation in the nation is hecoui
Ing vitally serious.
In this report the house committee
coincides with the opinion voiced by
Food Administrator Hoover when the
bill was presented to him by Represen
tative Anderson and when he said:
"I fear it does not go fsr enouffh to
meet the emergency. The points cov
ered by your proposal are:
Ma Licensing public eating places,
"(bl Percentage of wheat in flour.
,") Mixing other cereals in (lour.
"(d) Wheatless or other 'less' davs
er week.
"(e) I'se of foodstuffs in nonfood
products.
"(f Limitations on food served in
public eating places.
Extension of Lexer Act
"The extension of the measures in
the Lever Act, which our experience
and the present situation lead u to
believe are vital for conservation,
sliould also include:
"I. Control of distribution in order
that all classes and localities may fare
alike and that unnecessary consumption
should he prevrnted.
"2. Control of use of foodstuffs in
food manufactures with a view to lim
.itirig the less essential manufactures.
','.1. Control of commodities critically
necessary for the production and preser
vation of foodstuffs in order to prevent
reat losses and military sacrifices.
Mast Go Desper
"While it Is vitally neeessnry to reg
ulate the consumption of food in public
eating places, they consume on various
estimates, from 12 to 20 erepnt of the
total foodstuffs, and if they were re
duced out of all reason they' would not
solve the problem. Some method must
be devised which will eoer a lunch
wider area of consumption.
"It appears to me that we should at
'ark the nonessential uses of foodstuffs.
and that we should attack the points of
unnecessary consumption of foodstuffs
By these means we ran place the burden
where, it belongs on the luxurious aud
greedy, and not upon the poor. This iin
nliea some further measures of control
in distribution and in nonessential use.
W Uea, wtH'tfve the whole problem
nuity j oeneve yon will nan that some
where in the nation we consume or do
itroy over SO percent more food than
we need for health and strength, ami
'hat this margin, if it can be imple
mented, will supply all allied demands
But we should not draw it from thai
lass to which economy and moderate
ie is a daily necessity.
Jnfar Ai Example
"Take, for example, the case of
ugar, the shortage in which will, we
hofle, not exceed 10 percent. We should
he able to accomplish this by a re. Un
ion in the manufacture of confection
'ry and sweet drinks of, say SO er
cent, and these very manufacturer
could substitute other things and main
tain their volume of production. During
he receut shortage we made a putri
otic appeal to such manufacturers to re
luce their consumption of sugar by !il
percent and placed it at this figure be
ause we did not wish to destroy the
i el i hood of 2(50,000 womeu and t;irls
tending fuller supplies of sugar. I
Save specifically before me the case of
me very large manufacturer who f'ol
lowed this suggestion implicitly, onlv
o find that over a score of ninuiifae
urers of unit at ion goods sprang up on
ill sides, supplied the trade to his great
'amage aad loss, and we were powerlcn.
o n'vc hini any protection in his pa
'riotie action. Surely; it is better that
he conservation of .augar should be
nade in the luxury trades and that they
hould have protection iu making it
han that we should draw upon house
mid supplies.
"The recent experience with f sugar
ilso serves to prove the necessity to
have some further owers iu distribu
ion. During the eutire receut sugar
diortage the gross supply amounted In
ill percent of normal consumption, vel
i' had sporadic famines and privation

FOR WRECK OF
SHIP ON TRIP
Evidence Is Found On Sacra

Damage Or Destroy Ship On
Maiden Trip
Mullet simp.- I foreign steel sub
stances found near an opening to a l
ilnulcr in the engine room of the
strnini r Sn. r:. ini'iito. which was towed
here yestcrd'n with her engines dis
abled, lii-cau t n .racked cylinder
hetnl. has aM.d color lo an already
grave snspi. i. in that deliberate plans
wire made h Genuiin agents to .lis
nlile, if not destroy, this vessel on her
mniden vovne.
Due to the pi-cubar shape and sire of
the pieces of ste l found, round and
from two to thiee inches in length, it is
believed other pieces of steel were shot
into the damiiged cylinder with an air
riveting pump just after the engines
w ere instnlle.l at ,s,.ntt le.
If this be t r i it-. the destructive agents
of the Knisei cunningly placed the
pieces of steel in sui h n position that it
would take several days' use of the
ship's engine I., work them down where
they would I eitiiiu to crnck the cyl
imler head, if not cruise much more
serious datnnge ,
This cunning was necessary, it ia ex
dained. in order to permit the new ves
sel to get to sen before any damage
wns caused, and so nothing unusual or
unexpected would occur on the' trial
trip of the steamer.
Examination Necessary
Now, many n board the steamer Saera
mento believe that the Hun plana,
either partly or entirely worked out as
planned, hut this will not be fully es
tablished until the piston is taken from
the damaged cylinder and a thorough
examination made. Then if, as auapeet
ed, other bits of foreign steel ar found
in the eylinder it will he proved that an
attempt was made to put out of eon
mission one of the first big steel steam
ers launched for the emergency fleet
from a Seattle shipyard.
As there were hundreds of pien en,
gaged in the const ruction of the ship,
and mnnv others afterward employed
aboard when the engines were installed.
it mav be found impossible to trace the
plot back to those who carried out the
designs of the (lei mans or German sym
pathisers. Kven the suspected use of air rivet
ing pumps in "planting" .the steel
pieces will provide only n slender alue,'
as there were dozens of these used
aboard the ship in the construction
work.
Possible Evidence
. Discovery of the bits of steel about
the entrance to the d (imaged eylinder
was first made last Sunday when an at
tempt was mnde to ascertain damages
and repnir the disabled Sacramento en
gines. There was nearly a handful of
the bits of steel, rusty and peculiarly
marked, as if rifled.
When carelessness of workmen
aboard the steamer who, it is suggested,
might have left these pieces of steel in
the engine room, is attributed as an ex
planation of the discovery, the engine
crew of the Sacramento smile sure as
ticnlly. and say:
"Oh that might be If up enough, if
such bits of steel were not 'foreign' to
the machinery." Tbcy mean by this
thnt the stee) bits are not the same
kind of material, or the same color or
shape, which might have been chiselled
nr cut olT from machinery parts while
the engines were being installed. In
other words, the steel substances are
"foreign." as the more tnlkative ones
of the engine crew reiterate.
Will Make Survey
Steps are lo be taken today to make
: preliminary survey of the engine ma
ehiiicry of the ship and then the piston
rod to the damaged eylinder will be re
moved and the exact truth determined.
This survey will be made for Lloyds
by John H. Muirliend, superintending
engineer for the Inter-Island Navipa

signed by General Hoffman, saying that the German reply had been
handed to the Russian courier, who had immediately departed for
Petrograd. This wireless gave no indication of the terms outlined
in the reply. ' j
WRACKED BY ANARCHY
Russia has no choice but to submit to any terms that Berlin
may offer. The entire country is wracked by anarchy, with the army
openly mutinous, the people refusing to pay the slightest attention
o appeals from the Bolsheviki
on unopposed.
Livonia is now being overrun
outskirts ot Kevel, the great naval base, which the troops of the
garrison refused to help evacuate. The Russian soldiery are sur
rendering to the first Germans encounteied without firing a shot,
surrendering their arms and supplies. The people ignore the de- ,
manda of Ensign Krylenko that they inaugurate a guerilla warfare.
On the contrary they are welcoming the coming of the Germans
as"a relief from the disorders they have been the victims of since
