Is reported to have caused the prema

Germans. Germany's Methuselah class
is still going strong. Official statistics
show that there are 55 women and

BRITISH PHONE SYSTEM

LONDON, Nov. 6. Sir William No-bb-.
englner-in-chlef to the British
Postoffloe, which also controls th.
telephones of the country, says the
American telephone system Is super
ior to that of Great Britain.
Sir William, who has Just returned
from a? Visit to the Fnited States, told
the Society of Arts tho general intro
duction of automatic telephones was
probably the main feature In the
American scheme of progress. Discuss
ing this matter with telephone experts
in tin- cities he visited, lie found prae- !
tlcally a unanimous opinion that full
automatic working was the only cer
tain method of ensuring the quality
Of service demanded by the public.
Tin popularity of the telephone in
America was, he considered, due first
of ,11 lo the flat rate, secondly to
monthly accounts, and thirdly to party
line services and tho policy of foster
ling residential lines.

was a harp clash between the commu

tho meeting.
The workers in the German indus-i

pressed iu the congress with the need;
of conserving raw products so that,
Germany may produce sufficient lin-;

tabllsh credits abroad with which toj
pay for tho Importation of the most 1
necessary food and raw materials.
Rudolph Wlssel, formerly minister
of economics, said that German textile
and iron Industries were in need of for )
elgn supplies. The 28.000,000 tons of
ore which Germany formerly obtained
from Alsace-Lorraino and Luxemburg
must now be procured through for
eign credits. The Versailles treaty
had deprived the nation of one-third
of its grain producing areas while the
remaining soil had been impoverished
by intensified wartime cultivation andj
lack of fertilizers.
The former minister ascribed the
present economic crisis to under-production,
denying that it was due to
over-consumption Bfrtd he declared that
Germany would be forced to subsist on

the limitation of Imports had produced
