land forces at a 'launch from the !
American cruiser Tennessee proceed

Secretary Daniela simultaneously ca
bled the commander of the cruiser |
North Carolina, also in, the Mediter
ranean, to take no action which j
might embarraas the American gov-,
ernment and to await specific in
structions from Washington.
These steps followed the receipt of j
a message from Captaba Benton C. |
Decker, commander .of the Tennes
see, paraphrased In r. this statement |
from tho navy department:
"Captain B. C. Decker, in command
of the i Tennessee wired " Secretary

Details of Workings of New
Scheme Outlined in Statement
(Tly Associ?t fd frc**.)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 18.-Although
tile $135,000,000 cotton loan fund has
been completed, officials of thc fed
eral reserve board and the treasury
department declared today that the
South . must Introduce diversification
of crops and' a reduction of cotton
acreage next year to get the full'bene
fits from the fund and insure a ma
terial increase in the price of raw
cotton for next year's crop. Secre
tary McAdoo in a statement tonight
called.this "the other pressing- and
important problem" with which the
South must deal. He urged the rais
ing of food products which he pre
dicted will find a ready market, par
ticularly if the European war persists.
"The Southern fanner," said Mr.
McAdoo,- "therefore has an unusual
opportunity now for changing exist
ing methods and habits with certain
profit and permanent benefit to him
self.;" He suggested that the depart
ment of agricultura would'gladly out
line .methods of crop diversification
suitable to different localities, and
added that bankers had an excellent
opportunity to aid in this work by
using their. influence*io direct tho'
character of crops by imposing "pro
por conditions" upon advances to far
:. -"The ; farmers of tho South,? con
m?dad\?ie Btatemeht, "ought to wake !
