pretation of his recent interview with
the Associated Press.
David Soskice, the premier's secre

day regarding the mis-interpretation
by some of the London papers of the
interview. "I have seen Premier
Kerensky with reference to the inter
view and shown him quotations from
the English press and he still con
tends there is no occasion for the
papers misconstruing the statements
he made to the effect that Russia is
still in the war t odo its duty."
"I have seen Kerensky with refer
ence to the interview and shown him
the quotations in the English press,"
he continued. "He was very much
astonished with the manner in which
his plain statements were received In
London. Whoever read the whole in
terview can draw but one conclusion
from it: Russia was doing, is doing
and still will do her utmost in carrying
on her share of the common cause
against the enemy."
FOCR-MTXUTE MAX TO SPEAK
. B. Rurrus Will Talk Tonight at
Columbia Picture Shows.
W. B. Burrus of Springfield, one of
the four-minute men of the state who
are directing a campaign of education
in Missouri on what the war means
and why the United States is in it,
will make three speeches in Columbia
tonight at the moving picture theaters.
At 7:45 o'clock, he will talk at the
Hall Theater on "Why We Are Figh
ing.'' At 9:15 o'clock he will speak at
the Columbia Theater on "What Our
Enemy Really Is," and between the
shows at the Odeon he will have his
subject "Onward to Victory." Each of
these talks will last four minutes.
The organization of four-minute men
is working under the direction of the
Committee on Public Information at
Washington. County organizations
have been formed in most of the coun
ties in Missouri, but In Boone County
the work has lagged. The chairman
ship has been offered to Robert J.
Kerner of the history department of
the University, but it is not known yet
whether or not he will accept. As
soon as a chairman is obtained, about
eight speakers will be appointed to
make four-minute talks three times a
week at the moving picture shows
throughout the county.
Mr. Burrus attended a smoker of
four-minute men from all over the
state in St. Louis last night, and there
it was suggested that he come to Co
lumbia to start the work In Boone
County. He is chairman of the organ
ization in Greene County. One of his
four-minute speeches, "Why We Are
Fighting," has been widely published

Operation in War Against

It Is Believed Work Per

By Associated Tress
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6. Japan and
the United States have 'reached a
complete agreement in regard to China
and at the same time have arrived at
an understanding as to military, naval
and economic co-operation in the war
This development was announced to
day by Secretary Lansing, who made
public notes exchanged by him and
Viscount Ishii, the special Japanese
ambassador, formally recording an
agreement recognizing that Japan has
a special interest in China, pledging
the independence and territorial In
tegrity of the great eastern republic
and re-affirming tho doctrine of the
"open door" for commerce and In
Both Countries Are Benefited.
In a statement accompanying the an
nouncement, Secretary Lansing said:
"Viscount Ishii and the other Japanese
commissioners, who are now on their
way back to their country, have per
formed a service to the United States
as well as to Japan, which is of the
"There unquestionably has been
growing up between the peoples ol
each country a feeling of suspicion
as to the manifest intentions and ac
tivities of the other in the far east, a
feeling, which if left unchecked, prom
ised to develop a serious situation. An.
attitude of constraint and doubt thu
created was fostered and encourage??
by the campaign of falsehood, which
has been adroitly and secretly carried
on by Germans for a long time.
Details Not .Made Public.
"At the same time it is not expedient
to make public the details of the con
versation, but it may be said that this
government has been gratified by the
assurance of Viscount Ishii and his
colleagues that his government in
tends to do its part in the forcing of
Prussian militarism to submission,
and that Japan is willing to co-operate
in every practical way toward. this end.
It may be added, he said, that in the
matter of naval co-operation in the
Pacific, for the purpose of attaining
the common object against Germany
and her allies, agreement has been
reached by the naval representatives
of the Japanese government who ac
companied the Ishii commission to
It is believed that Japan will be able
to augment the efforts she has been
making in sweeping the Pacific and
Indian oceans clear of German raid
ers and possibly to employ Japanese
troops in the campaign against Ger

Food Administrator Stamford Says
Every Family In Slate Should Help.
"The food pledge campaign is going
to be overwhelmingly successful,"
said Food Administrator F. B. Mum
ford today. "Robert H. Hudson, who Is
in charge of the .campaign in St.
Geneviee County, below St. Louis, has
written me that every family in the
county has signed the pledge. Though
I haven't complete returns from other
counties the indications are that hard
ly a single family will fail to sign."
Dean Mumford expects to get 650,000
signers in the state. This is the num
ber of families in Missouri, according
to computations based on the latest
census figures. What makes the cam
paign more gratifying, says Dean
Mumford, is that signers arc asking
questions as to how they can best live
up to the obligations of the pledge.
