DERI. IN, Aug. 21. As the second
year of the war closes Garmany's food
! problem is about solved. Government
economists are turning their faces to
I During the last few months the food
has Leen bad. The people have lived
through on substitutes. The military
campaign has been materially affect
ed by the change in food conditions at
h;nie. There have been no troubles
so great as the Irish revolution. Food
j dictator von Itntocki tcok the mask
j frcm the world's ees regarding the
food situation. Today he is well on
the way to a solution of the problem.
The Wggest economic question in
Germany is not food, but: "What shall
Germany do to meet the preparations
;f the Allies to declare an economic
boycott of Germany and her allies af
ter the war?" Germany has chosen
for the solution of this problem Sec
retary of the Interior, Dr. Karl Helf-
The Submarine Campaign.
Concerning the relationship of the
submarine campaign and the "Ameri
can Crisis'" to the economic situation
here, the German people believe their
submarine warfare against merchant
ships was a retaliation, a defensive
measure, against the English blockade
which they say changed international
law so that food for non-combatants
could be declared contraband.
The view of the German people, as
it is impressed upon a correspondent
in the last twelve months is this: The
submarine war was instituted to break
the illegal blockade. Because Eng
land did n'ot respect the interests cf
the unwarring people of Germany,
Germany felt she did not need to re
spect the interests of her enemy. Pres
ident Wilson, however, undertook to
speak for the neutrals against the
submarine warfare but so far he has
taken no drastic steps against the
The Food Situation.
President Hatocki recently told me
he lifted the veil from the food sit
uation here to impress on America
that if it was fair respecting its re
lations to the belligerents it would do
something to enforce international
law as it was before the war respect
ing food stuffs. Food for non-combatants
was not contraband until the
English Order in Council was made.
Since then, practically no food stuff
lias come from America to Germany.
The German people have lived
through a hard summer so far as food
is concerned. Vegetables and fruit
have been plentiful but meat, butter
and other fats have been scarce. So
at times have been potatoes, rice and
beans. The market has been flooded
with substitutes. It is undoubtedly
true that if the food situation had
changed suddenly, from the plenty of
last summer to the scarcity of this
summer, the people could not have ad
justed themselves to it. Rut the
change has been .gradual. At first one
did without meat two days a week,
then the number of times increased to
four or five. Finally there were meat
less weeks but the people ate, com
plained or laughed and existed from
day to day.
Duller Is Sold Out.
An American woman who lived in
Germany several years said she would
see a sign in a shop window reading
"Putter." She would walk up closer
and underneath, in small letters, was
the statement that it was "sold out"
or else it was an advertisement of a
butter substitute made of fats from
the roots of plants. There has been
a substitute for everything. When
there were no more fats to fry with,
new frying pans were invented to fry
meat without fat.
The scarcity of food caused many
abuses and adulterations. A baker in
Hamburg was arrested for making
bread of sawdust. So was a Rerlin
baker merchant arrested for adding
"7 per cent of water to butter. Abuses
have been watched for and stopped.
Prices have been very high. The so
cialists have complained of them in
the Reichstag with some success.
The first big difficulty was the laws
of small German states forbidding the
export of food. Bavaria had much
more food than Prussia. The task of
Batocki was to abolish these regula
tions. Ilelfferich, who during the next 20
years will be one of Germany's lead
ing '.figures, has the new task of regu
lating and de eloping Germany's in
dustries. Ilelfferich has lived a me
teoric career though still in his early
forties. Two years ho lectured in the
I'nlvcrsity of Berlin, two years more
he managed the Anatolian railway,
for two years was president of the
Deutsche Bank, then for two years
Secretary of the Tieasury. Now for
two years, so a member of the HeMi-
stag remarked to me one day lie will
be Secretary of the Interior and then,
he added. "lie may be the next Chan
cellor, but not during the war."
IlellTerieh's immediate job is to pre- I
pare Germany's industries. Thise!
who know Ilelfferich believe he will be !
There are many plans but the one j
furthest developed is to have the gov- j
eminent import all raw materials, her
greatest need, after the war. There- j
by the lowest pricts can be secured in j
foreign lands and the products can
be sold at a margin in Germany. This '
margin can be used to pav the debts i
of the war nnit en t.-.-oi. .i.i-n ,i., '
heavy taxes. i
It is impossible for anyone to re
port accurately what the situation Is. j
One can only picture what one sees
during one's travels. One sees no un
employed except perhaps among wo- '
men. All factories are running full
time, for eighty per cent of Germany's
industries are making war materials.
Great municipal improvements are un
der way such as an extension of the
underground railroad in Berlin and
the construction of a new dock on the
banks of the Spree. There are only a
few horses and automobiles but much
activity everywhere. Shops are
crowded with buyers and the people
comfortably and well dressed. There
are no striking evidences of want be
cause in peace time Germany was
about the only European nation which
had solved the problem of poverty.
