nouncement was made.
Guglielmo Marconi, here with the
Italian war mission, was to have ap
peared before the board today, but
was ill. He expects to accept the
board's invitation to address its next
meeting. Peculiar interest attaches
to the invitation because of published
reports that Signor Marconi has dis
covered an effective way of dealing
with submarines. He has indicated
to American naval officials, however,
that the reports were unauthorized
and his appearance before the board
probably will be in connection with
radio telegraphy or kindred subjects.

LEVER FOOD BILL
Measure to Survey and Conserve the
Resources of the Nation is Step
Washington, May 28.-Without a
roll call the Lever bill for a food sur
vey was passed by the house today.
The bill allows the secretary of agri
culture to spend $14,522,000 for a food
survey and stimulation of production.
The senate has yet to pass the meas
ure. Today by a vote of 35 to 34 that
body cut down an appropriation of
$4,500,000 in the Gore-Lever food sur
vey bill for the eradication of diseases
and pests of cattle to $825,000. Fur
ther efforts will be 'made to cut down
other appropriations before the bill
comes up for a final vote, probably to
Senator Poindexter's bill providing
three years' imprisonment for persons
in interstate or foreign commerce at
tempting to corner food or fuel, was
reported favorably by the senate ju
diciary committee this afternoon. An
attempt will be made to tack the bill
to the pending food survey bill.
Two or three weeks. is the limit set
by Secretary Houston. for taking of
the food census.
Another point emphasized by Secre
tary Houston was that there seemed
to be a popular misconception as to
the cost of taking the food census.
Half a million dollars is the high
water mark, because most of the ma
chinery for making a food survey is
part of the Department of Agricul
ture's organization. In the taking of
the census, postmasters, state food
organizations and 'other local agencies
will be employed.
The total appropriation asked by
the Department of Agriculture is
made up ofamany items. One of them
as passed in the house bill is $5,778,
000 for conserving next year's seed
supp)lies. The department is author
izedl to purchase seed if necessary and
sell or distribute as circumstances de.

items which wvould not materially af
fect the work of the department.
Explaining how the Department of
Agriculture could take a food census
so quickly and at such a~ small cost,
Secretary Houston recalled that the
department has 150,000 "reporters'
who colect the data for the various
crop estimates. These men are locat
edl in every section of the country and
will be one of the greatest aids in
determining jiust what food, stocks
there arc in every section.

GERMANY RUSHES AID
TO AUSTRIA FROM EAST
"Across the Prostrate Body of the
Iapsburg Empire" Now Aim of the
Russia Shows Fight Again by Start
ing Artillery Bombardment, Says
ILondon, May 28.-"Across the pros
trate body of the Hapsburg Empire
leads the road to final victory."
An eminent military critic thus
commented this evening on the day's
news from the Austro-Italian front,
recording new smashing advances by
Cardona's- armies, especially his right
wing, toward Trieste.
Judging by reports pouring in from
all sides it seemed that this comment
strikingly sums up the situation as
created by the Italian drive and its
consequence. At the recent confer
ence between Premier Lloyd-George
and Frnch and Italian statesmen in
southern France, it is rumored the
plan now being executed was decided
ly upon: The crushing of Austria
Two weeks ago Cardona struck. He
followed blow with blow until now
his offensive has developed into a
"hounding process," with hammer
strokes alternating swiftly, unceas
ingly. From the far-flung Russia
battle front the Austrian high com
mand has drawn every available man
to fill the gaps on the Isonzo. Sixty
thousand men, in dead, wounded and
missing, is the Austrian toll up to
date front dispatches estimated today.
And still troop trains are hurrying at
top speed from the Russian to the
Italian front. Every day as the Ital
ians register new gains the "impera
tive" number in the east is reduced
and the Galacian front is stripped of
an additional few thousands.
And in the midst of this terrific
strain on the dual monarchy the Rus
sians suddenly are beginning to show
fight. 'T'here were strong signs today
that the Muscovites are about to join
in the houndering process. Vienna's
official bulletin opened thus:
"There was heavy Russian artillery
fire in lahces which we answered."
As for A ustria's side of the lsonzo
story, it cont inu~es to be told in a
highly confIiden t tenor. ''The A us
