CINNERS AND CRUSH[RS I
TO DO THIR PART IN'
February 11, 1919.I
To Licensees of the Cottonseed In
At a meeting called by the United it
States Food Administration on Feb
ruary 10 and 11, and attended by rep
resentatives of all cotton producing
states, planters, seed dealers, ginners,
crude mills, refiners, lard substitute
manufacturers, wholesale distributors,
and the Federal Food Administrators
from all the cotton states, the follow
ing situation wats brought out, to
gether with certain suggestions and
recommendations, and a free state
ment from all the different elements (
concerned as to what they were will- f
ing to do in order to carry through
to a s::ucdl t-rmination the mar
ketin;: cf all cottonseed and its pro- i
'ducts at stabilized prices.
The Situation: Statistics compiled
by the Census Bureau show that on 1
January 1, 1919, the general condition
of the cottonseed industry as to the
seed in the hands of the farmers and
crushers, the amount of seed crushed,
the amount of crude oil held by the t
crushers, the amount of refined oil
produced and the' stocks of refined
oil in the hands of the refiners, was in
a normal state as compared with the
same (date last year. This indicates'
that there has been a normal flow
from the crude products to the refined
products, and that if this flow con
tinues the whole cdttonseed crop and
its products will be marketed in a
perfectly normal way, without flue
tuation of prices.
It is however true that in certain
localities, due to local conditions, there
has been an accumulation of sfocks
of seed and oil, which has caused ap
prehension on the part of the indus- k
try. Another cause of apprehension
has been the uncertainty as to the
con'tinuation of the stabilization pro-,
gram agreed to between the industry
and the Food Administration. Fur- t
thermore, a very large amount of for- t
eign oils has been imported and has
been sold below the market price of *
cottonseed oil, thus affecting some
what the domestic demand for refined t
cottonseed oil. t
To meet the above conditions the t
meeting unanimously made the fol- s
lowing suggestions and recommenda- c
tions to the Food Administration: .
Suggestions and Recommendations I
(1) That all orders for lard sub- h
stitutes allocated through the United I
States Food Administration ot- re
ceived for export by the manufactur- I
ers direct, be manufactured solely out i
of domestic cottonseed oil and may in- S
elude a proportion of domestic oleo
stearin, domestic peanut oil, and no c
other oils whatever.
(2) That the United States Food
Administration, together with the i
State Food Administrators, their sue- d
cessors or agents, continue to func- t
tion and give due consideration to
the carrying to a successful conclu- a
sion the stabilized plan governing the .
cottonseed indlustry, giving every, t
available publicity to the effect that
this is their intent and purpose until
the 'ompletion of the marketing ofr
the present crop.
(3) That an embargo on the fu
ture importation of Oriental vegetable) <
oils be established until the present
emrfergency has passedl.
(4) That a rapid opening of all
the markets of the world andl the ci
removal of all trade restrietions be e
acc omplished as quickly as possibl.i
(6) That a telegram be sent o
Mr. Hoover explaining the situation 1
and asking his continued coopera' on,
particularly in reference to opening (
the European markets and removaJ of e
restrictions on free e.xport of cotton- y
(6) A recommendation madec to s
crushers to use their best effort in
purchasing seed from the localities
where the heaviest congestion of seed
(7) A recommendlation madle to re
finers to purchase crude oil from crude
mills where the heaviest congestion
of oil exists.
Stabilization To lie Continued.

with the Food Administration thatj (
the stabilization plan should be con
tinned and more particularly

Paris, Feb. 17.--Marshal lFuch this
afternoon informed the supreme coun
cil of the acceptance by the Germans
of the conditions for a renewal of the
Marshal Foch appeared in person
before the council of the great pow
ers today and announced the accept
ance and the signing by the Germans
of the new conditions of the armistice.
The signing took place at !; o'clock
Sunday evening on board Marshal
Foch's privat2 car at Treves.
The signing averts what promised
to be a rather criticial situation as it
has been reported that the Germans
might persist in carrying out their in
timations of a refusal to sign.
The new terms while still withheld,
are understood to restrict German
operations against Poland within cer
tain fixed lines, thus removing the
danger of a military clash, and at the
same time opening access between the
interior of Poland and the Baltic sea.
"But more important results will
take form shortly when Marshal Foch
returns to Treves for submission of
the details of the disarmament and de
mobilization of the German forces
which are being formulated by the
military naval and economic advisers
of Foch. These are of a nature

While the blockade is not raised by
the present terms yet it is expected
that the disarmament under later and
more complete terms will obviate the
necessity of a further blockade and
permit such economic and food relief
as is determined upon.
The council of the great powers to
day gave a further hearing on the
Russian question, but no decision was
reached. The feeling seems to be gen
eral that no decision is in sibht and
that none of the pending plans offer
much of a prospect for arriving at a
sa tisfactory solution.

Copenhagen, Feb. 17.--The renewal
of the armistice was signed at 6:30
