PRAY FOR WARM WEATHER
Another Cold Spell .Might 3Iean
Much Suffering.
Little CTianee Kansas Factonies
Will Shut Down. ,
Pray for warmer weather. i
Another cold wave such as visited
Kansas last week will mean an open
ing of your cellar and coal bin that
your neighbor may keep warm. That
was the warning sounded In Topeka
today by Emerson Carey, of Hutchin
son, state fuel administrator. Carey
does not anticipate a shutting down of
Kansas industries or a closing of
offices. But without warmer weather
in the next three or four weeks, coal
bins must become common property.
"We are simply" right up agalnHt a
problem which means the production
is riot sufficient to meet the demand,'
said Carey. "Without a reserve sup
ply of fuel another cold wave means
that the man with a couple of tons of
coal in his cellar must divide with Tils
less fortunate neighbors. A little warm
weather, tho, and .an increase in the
ga.-? supply will work wonders In Kan
sas." No Shut Down Here.
Carey is not inclined to -the belief
that Kansas industries will be closed
because of the fuel shortage. He says
conditions here are not as acute as
in the industrial centers of the east.
"But another cold wave will prob
ably mean regulation of hours for
stores and shops and offices. In my
home town we have refused to permit
dealers to sell coal to churches or pool
halls or places of amusement until
the supply is sufficient to care for the
needs in homes without a coal supply.
We are trying to handle the problem
with as little friction as possible.
Three o four more weeks will see us
well over the danprer point. Warmer
weather in that time will enable us to
catch up bufTT cold weather comes
back, look out."
BIG SEED PROBLEM
Kan mis Will Plant 22 Million
Acres of Crops This Year.
Jardine Says 15,000 School
Children Will Help.
Soed problems in Kansas are vitally
serious, according to Dean Jardine,
who spoke before the council of de
fense here today. He sai.l the state
this spring would plant twenty-two
million acres to various crops. Under
his suggestion the state defense council
will conduct a survey of the available
seed situation and work out a plan for
distribution of seeds in all counties.
The sorghum situation was declared
by Dean Jardine as serious. He said
the shortage of seeds was greater than
at any time in twenty or thirty years.
Nearly 15,000 school children will be
mobilized for farm work in the state
under the Jardine program. He urged
a six-day school week and the release
of children and. teachers for early
work on the farm or in win-the-war
endeavors'. ,
Before the end of the year. Professor
Blackmar declared, every community
will- realize the heed of home guard
units. He urged support of the guards
and a vagrancy program that will
compel every man who won't fight to
work,
AGREE TO SPEED UP
Will Avoid Vniiceessary Hearings to
Jam J louse Program Thru.
Washington, Jan. 17. Speeding up
of all appropriation measures by
avoiding unnecessary hearings and all
possible delays with a view to con
cluding all business of the house by
May and readiness to adjourn
congress by June 1, was agreed upon
at a conference today between Speaker
Clark, Democratic Leader Kitchin and
the chairmen of all the leading com
mittees of the house.
PRESS COMMENT ON
CLOSING FACTORIES
New York, Jan. 17. New York's
newspapers, except the New York Sun,
today condemns the Garfield order

Prescribed Food. j Rotary Prayer.
Responsibilities of the Kansas farm
er In winning the war were laid be
fore th war council late this after
noon in a speech by Dean Jardine of
the state agriculture! college, who
urged utilisation of every available
acre of noil and production of maxi
mum crops. Hchool children must be
used on the farm and every able
bodied man available for service must
be drafted for cultivation and Har
vesting the crops, war boosters were
told.
Kansas farmers must be aided, he
said. In securing the best Reed, plant
ing maximum acreage and gathering
props. The town man and boy must
do his part. Dean. Jaid'.ne urged gar
den plots even greater than those of
last year. He urged canning fac
tories and the utilisation of every
pound of food produced from the
soil.
All Eyes on Kansas.
"What Kansas does concerns all
other stages in the Union, and the re
motest provinces of the allies," he
said, "for Kansas is a leading state in
the production of wheat, the principal
breadstuff of the world, and Is not far
I e iiijd with corn. We must urre the
plantfht; of the maximum -irreage of
spring trofs. Our reserves of grain
are extremely low. The government
id resolveQ to furnish the allied ar
mios aiO peoples the necessary food
stufld to enable them to hold the bat
tle lir.c until our army ta prepared
It if up to the American farmers to
maintain and even increase produc
tion." Conservation of food was urged by
Mrs. Mary Fierce Van Zile, dean of
home ecanomics, state agricultural
college.
"We have already exported all of
our surplus wheat from the United
States since the last harvest, said
the speaker, "reserving only enough
for normal consumption of seed and
flour until the next harvest. What
we send to our allied soldiers is repre
sented exactly by what we save. The
Allies are asking a 25 per cent in
crease in meats and fats above the
amount we can send, unless we con
sume less.
Mu8t Save More. ,
"Let us organize an efficient se
cond line of defense to save whatever
may be necessary in order that we
may send what is needed to our boys.
This is a definite part of our service.
The sacrifice is not worth mention
ing in comparison with that which
our soldiers are making."
Kansans must eat less, Walter P.
Innes, state food administrator, told
the men and women who attended
the meeting. There is enough for
everyone, he said, but this is not the
day for hogs. He said in part:
"There is plenty of food In the United
States if we eat the right sort; There are
tW.lKHi.000 bushels of potatoes more than
the normal supply. There Is a surplus of
1.000,000 pockets of rice.
Eat Corn Bread.
"We should eat corn meal. One pound
of corn meal -equals in nutritive value il
cents' worth of eggs at oO cents a dozen.
A cent's worth of corn meal equals a cent's
worth of any kind of food. A loaf of corn
bread equals two loaves of wheat bread
In value.
"We should eat our surplus of rice, po
tatoes, cum aud vegetables. We should In
crease the consumption of perishables 50
to 100 per cent. Corn meal is high due to
difficulty of transportation, but It Is still
an economical substitute for bread.
"In a few weeks a new home card will
be ready for distribution. They will beip
explain how to assist the country and we
want one iu every kitchen in Kausas. To
that end we waut every county organization
to so perfect tself that it cuu do its
part in placing these cards In the homes.
Since conditions are constantly changing
I would urge all to watch the papers bo
as to keep advised ou the food supply and
as to the beat foods to use largely.''

BRITISHER MAKES ADDRESS
At the Chamber of Commerce this
noon the Rotarians turned out In the
largest attendance that has been pres
ent at any meeting this year. Places
were set for eighty members and more
than 100 were present, but by dint of
patience were able to get something
to eat.
Promptly after the food was sent on
its appointed way, the Rotary
Quartet, consisting of Charles L..
Mitchell, Ferd Funk; B. B. Kitel
man and Frank Beck, sang the
Old Gray Mjre for the appreciation of
the members. Accompaniment was
played by Roy Crawford. The effort
was duly appreciated tho the mem
bers of the quartet showed a sad lack
of rehearsal and the idea of hurmony
was somewhat lacking. Some other
quartet present was not satisfied with
the effort and attempted to improve
on it he audience evidently pasbed
the palm to the first performers.
Following this were two or three
short talks from visiting presidents
with two speeches, one by Rotarian
Governor Charles W. Dawson of the
Eleventh Rotary district, and his dep
uty governor, Clement Williams of the
Kansas City club.
Bartlctt Sings Prayer.
B. P. Bartlett sang the Rotary
Prayer with abundant sympathy, his
rendition being appreciably helped by
the accompaniment of Miss Myrtle
Radcliffe. ' The words of the song
were written especially for the Rotary
clubs by Marco Morrow, and was set
to music by Harry J. Dunham, a fa
mous Chicago composer. The song
today was sung from the original pen
and ink manuscript of the composer.
Miss Marguerite Gohlke was also
prevailed upon to sing a patriotic air.
The distinguished guests of the Ro
tary club today were men from over
seas, in America on a speaking tour.
Sir Frederick E. Smtih, attorney gen
eral for all England, was the speaker
of the day, confining his efforts this
noon to a short outline of England's
attitude on the war subject and her
determination to avenge the outrages
committed in Belgium, France and
England, and other countries that
have suffered under the iron heel of
the ' Hun.
Dr. George Vincent, son of Bishop
Vincent, and president of the Rocke
feller Foundation in America, also
gave a short talk on the close resem
blance of the words patriotism and
Rotary in their application. One other
speaker of note gave a short talk at
the close of the luncheon. Arthur
Bestor. chairman of the public speak
ing department of the National Coun
cil of Defense.
