WOMEN FIGHT TO GET MILK
FOR FAMJSHING BABIES
New York, Oct. 5. Milk famine
got to riot stage today. Police blot
ters" showed trouble on East Side,
where famished women and children
took desperate steps. In one instance
a driver was dragged from his cart
while a mob of 200 drained it of every
drop of milk. Milk lines have been
established in some sections. There
meager portions are doled out. Up
state the night riders are busy and
extra deputies have been Called to
guard creameries against attack.
While distributors had new sourc
es of supply, city officials estimated
that pinch was greater than at any
time Bince dairymen refused to sell
to Big Three at existing rates.
One hope of a break in the dead
lock lay in the fact that there were
some Bigns of weakening upon the
part of the Borden Co.
It has already offered & 35-cent
per 100 pounds increase for October,
while others in Big Three have
trailed at 31 cents. Farmers are .
standing out for 45-cent raise and
six months' contracts.
