HIGH PRICE OK SILAH There are many things far from sweet in the sugar situation, but the most striking one is the readiness by which the law of supply and demand may be re pealed. Karl 1). Babst, president of the American Sugar Refining t 0., re cently returned from Cuba with the announcement that the sugar supply in the United States i: ample. Only the normal growth of consumption has been noted. But the wholesale price has more than doubled in a year. Approximately two cents of the present 10-cent price is due to the Fordnoy-Mct'umber tariff •—the highest since President Grant’s administration which the absence of a consumer’s rep resentative* in Congress permit ted to he levied. But the rest of the rise in price came without the direct interposition of govern mental machinery, although tin suggestion has been advanced that advice of high government officials was instrumental in causing the economic price-rais ing machinery to he put into ef fect. Speculators are said to he seek ing to catapault sugar to 20 cents. There will he controversy whe ther the refiners arc trying to in crease their profits, producers art trying to pay their mortgages or speculators have obtained con trol of the market. But among the persons responsible for still further alteration of the law of supply and demand, the ultimate consumer will remain as guiltless as he was in the imposition of the Fordney-Mct umber tariff. WHY NOT FOR PEACE I It is announced from Wash ington that President Harding will soon call upon Great Brit ain. France, Italy. Japan and the Netherlands to sign an agree ment to put into effect new rules to govern the use of radio and aircraft in war. Ihe question is inevitable: Why not in peace? I*or some decades there have been some ponderous and some minute efforts toward the hu manizing of war. whatever that may be. I here can be no crit icism of such efforts. Anv agreements between individual nations, or between all nations tending to minimize the evils of war. are worthy. But peace is the thing. Why siumd not peace-time be devoted to sharpening the implements of peace, and oiling the machinery of commerce, as well as to con sideration of ways to use wea pons in war? Radio and airplanes are dis tinctly peace-time assets. They are fundamentally international in their use, and sound waves do not stop at the national boun dary lines. I here is no reason why a beginning should not he made at once in creating the un derstandings in international problems which arc bound to de velop as air development grows. 'The making of rules for use of the air in war will not be en tirely a harmonious proceeding, hut peace-time air can he charted amicably. Why Wood Fail* to Float. Wood is heavier than water. It is the air trapped in the many cells that makes It appear lighter.

TOKIO, Mar. 30.—The Japanese government contemplates spending 300.000.000 yen. or approximately *150,000,000. during the next 30 years to improve the roads of the empire. This includes ‘the new Yokohoma- Tokio and Osaka - Kobe automobile roads now under construction, which will eventually form part of a main road connecting Tokio. Yokohama. Nagoya. Kyoto. Osaka and Kobe, the width of which will be 36 feet near the cities and 30 feet in the coun try. At present motoring is made diffi cult in Japan owing to the narrow ness of the roads and the fact that they pass through thickly populated villages. 1 THU £\TLNTCNf CA.Fi f AL, ANTtfAPOHS. MARYLAND. FRIDAY, .MARCH no. 1923. BIGGEB STRAWBERRY AREA THIS SEASON i Preliminary Survey Indicates 7 j Per Cent. Increase In Acre age Planted To Berries If favorable conditions prevail dur ing the growing season there ought to be a bountiful production of straw-1 berries this season, according to John S. Dennee, crop statistician at Baltimore for the United States De partment of Agriculture, division of crop estimates. Acreage in 16 States, classed as early and Intermediate, is estimated at 103.400 acres this season compared with 96.890 last season, says the Statist, an increase of 7 per cent. These figures are based on a pre liminary survey by the division of crop estimates of the Department of Agriculture, Washington. The total area of t he so-called “intermediate" States, in which class fall Delaware. Maryland and ‘Virginia, is 81.130 acres, against 79.340 last season—an increase of slightly less than 2,000 acres. Maryland Hus iI.HKI Acres Delaware is estimated to Have 5,000 acres against 5,040 last season. Mary land 9,940 acres against 9,320, and Virginia 5.500 acres against 5.08 b last season. Tennessee leads in strawberry acre age this season with 20.060 acres; Ar kansas is next with 16.430; LottHano third with 14,500; Missouri fourth with 10,560, and Maryland ranks fifth with 9.940 acres. Florida and Louisiana are the only important States shipping at the pres ent time. Theso Stales down to March 24 had moved a total of 889 carloads, according to reports ren dered. During the season of 1922 Delaware shipped 928 carloads, Maryland 1.634 and Virginia 1,621. The season’s ihipments approximated 18,500 car loads. The yearly average for the seven years, 1916-1922, is about 12,150 cars. When ihe war was on attention was drawn away from strawberry culture to the production of more essential crops. But since 1290 the industry has been developing, and last season’s total movement exceeded the seven year average by about 6,000 cars. GENARO LOOKS TO OUirm H RING (Hr Tlie Amw ltcl Press.) NEW YORK. Mar. 30. Fate al most miscast Fratikic Genaro, the 21- vcar-old New Yorker who recently toppled Rancho Villa, the Filipino, off ’i;s American flyweight throne.

But after two days at the track ai 1 rave send Bay he was thrown off the o! for beating several other jockeys nto submission. As the Paulist Fath >rs look after an athletic club named in their honor, Father Morris sug gested that Genaro try boxing. He was a success from the start.

He won the world’s amateur title for his country, defeating J. Diveto, of Denmark, in the final brut.

The celebrated Lansing-Ishii agree ment, by which the United States in 1917 recognized Japan's "special in terest” in China, has been cancelled by mutual agreement of the Wash ington and Tokio governments. Diplomatic negotiations between the two governments have been based primarily on the provisions of the "'tie nrTvr r act, written and regarded ns applying more effectually the “principles of the open door or the quality of opportunity in China.” In disposing of the Lansing-Ishii agreement and substituting for it the principles of the document subscribed to by the nine powers.—the United Stateß, Japan, China, Great Britain, France, Italy, Portugal,the Nether lands and Belgium.—the American and Japanese governments accept a document that is regarded as covering more fully the situation and at the same time do away with an agreement that was a source of controversy from the moment that it became effective. The agreement was signed by Secretary Lansing and Ambassador Ishii on November 2, 1917, in the form o£ an executive understanding and as such it became immediately’effective, , Financial Statement and Growth Annapolis and Eastport Building Association ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND AUTHORIZED CAPITAL STOCK $500,000.00.
