President Wilson Signs the McNary

to Purehatse Cuban Sugar.
'Washington, 'Tan. 1, .- President
Wilson ha. signed the .icNary bill

equalization hoard through 1920. It
was announced today at the white
house that his signature had been
attached before midnight last night.
Secretary Tumuulty, in making the
announeement, isse(I this state
"The president h'as signed the
sugar control bill. The. bill confers
discretion on the president in the
matter of purchasing sugar from
Cuba. It is doubtful whether it will
be practical or wise for the presi
dent to 'xercise th power con
ferred. so far as the per chase and
distribution of sugar are concerned."
Some of the Cuban sugar has al
eandy been imurehase-l and there is
no central control over sugaru in
Cubah~, its there was last year, anid it
might t hercefore be impossible for
the government now to step in atnd
purchase thie stugar without increas

bill, however, continues the l icens

be usedi to assist in controlling the
