F.W YORK, lime 23 ( As
sociated I 'ress ) - The Aus
trian niiViisive li;is now come to a
'ietiniU1 end, so far a its first
phase is concerned, without the
Atlsl nans having gained one of
the points aimed at as objectives.
Blocked on the mountain sector
by the llies .Mid prevented from
brinnfiii'-: reinforcements into the
battle along the I'iave front be
cause of the rising waters of that
river, the enemv pressure has not
been resumed since Thursday
evening. after the Austrian as
saults had been broken up or held.
The sectors defended by the
French and British have been held
secure and every Austrian attack
was beaten back with such heavy
losses that they ceased their of
frn-ive along the northern front
alter three da s of bloody effort.
The Italian lines were bent before
the initial drives, but the greatei
part of this lost ground has been
regained. The Italians have reoc
cupied half the ground between
:l:e Hie and the I'iave canal as a
ii -ult of these latest counters.
OFFENSIVE SCATTERED
I he Italians were nowhere, at
any -tagc of the great battle,
forced to defend ' any one key
point agaWrMny's4riemeTKkjfl'on-

trians concentrate a sufficient
lorce to permit them to score a
material advance.

report is repeated in despatches

Idition to the classifying of some of
hose concerns that formerly socured

will now receive onlv half of thefr
former allotment, some of the less
essential users are now placed in the
noli essential clnss and their supply is

He desires that there shall be
ample sugar used for the canning and
preserving or touts ami the making
of jellies and jniiis and to secure thi
economy must he practised by other
users. Hi naming then sounded wa
considered wise nnd politic v the
sii.rar industry tor his i.uiiiose I to
prevent a sugar famine such as prae
ieallv nil of the east suffered from
lute last year.
It is not that there is an insufficient
supply of raw sugar which is available
to the country but because of the in
ability to move the raw sugar from the
sources of supply to tbe refineries.
Shipping that would otherwise be used
for that purpose ia now required for
the movement of supplies for the army
oversea and faster steamers are re-
uuired for the movement of troop.
Thi Hoover made clear in his message
which was read in the churches through
out the country ou May 2fl.
Movement Now Slow
From the Cuban and the I'm!" Ifnnu
runs steamers have been taken off and.
although the international sugar corn
mil tee exercised its option to take all
of the bnlanciva of the sugar crop of
Cuba, the movement of the aupply hns
slowed down. In May sugnr move
meats reached their maximum but June
will show a large decrease in arrivals

slowly nnd from the Philippines there

Vlider these circumstances unless the
greatest care is, shown aud the most
rigid control of the ue of sugar exer

an acute shortage before autumn while

SUPPLIES OF FOOD
Splendid Response of Farmers
Puts Nation In Far Better
Position Than Last Year
WASHINGTON, .lone L'L - (Odleial)
Reports of uu -reusing crop and
larger supplies of meat nnd other food
stuffs are i-oHiiiiir in and are lending
encouragement to the food administra
tion ami to government official sen
erallv. The situation is vastly better
than that of a year ago. From Kan
sas especially the news i gooil hut all
pnrts of the country appear to have
wakened to the nation' need nnd to
be heeling the call to speed up pro
luction and conserve against waste.
Production Speeded
The first of theMiew wheat crop it
now coining in and 1 "0, 00(1. 000 bushels
of winter wheat will be sent to the Al
lies this year. Kor Kansas there is fore
cast by the state board of agriculture
i winter wheat crop of 97,.1!4,376
liushel from 6,fi.4 ,tto(l acres planted,
which is the third largest crop in the
history of the state. Uf spriug wheat
the yieid is estimated at 808,089 from
:i2,T6 acrei, four tiaiea aa great a waa
the 1917 sprang wheat crop. In that
state the largest acreage ever planted
'o oats i showing splendid progress
and the oat yield i estimated at 71,
4119,890 bushel.
Supplies Are Better
Of other food supplies the store is
'arger than a year ago. There is far
more butter, eheese and egg in iter
ige now than then.
Men of all clauses and conditions
are uniting in the effort to increase the
food resources, of the TJuited States a
s evidenced by the fact that 8ve of
the richest bankers in New York have
organised a farming corporation and
have acquired control of 200,000 acres
of land in Montana on which they
purpose to raise wheat.
California's Share
California is a shining example of
conservation and a desire to help the
winning of the war by keeping starra
tion from the Allies. That state is
seuding seventy-two percent of the
total output of the flour mills of the
state to France. Last yenr 20,000 ton
of dried fruit were sent to the Allies
aud the placing of 40,000 sows on the
farms throughout the state has been
he result of greatly increasing the
pork supply and insuring later still
jreater output.
