Millions of Tons More
of Food Must Be Sent
Abroad Warns Hoover
WASHINGTON, September 22 (Associated Press) Al
though the calls upon the Nation for food for export for the
rapidly growing American army overseas are to be heavy,
there will be no compulsory rationing for Americans so long
as the great majority demonstrate their loyaltyand continue
conserving in food Bluffs as in the past.
Such was the announcement made yesterday by Food Ad
ministrator Hoover in outlining the food conservation pro
gram for the coming months.
Mr. Hoover announced that the United States must be
prepared to ship to the Allies and to the American army abroad
5,730,000 tons of food more during the coming year than dur
ing the past year. That the Nation vill be able to send this
tremendous excess without any necessity for drastic rules re
garding the uses of foods in American homes is Mr. Hoover's
hope, based on the responses ihat have been made heretofore
to all his requests for careful saving.

rood Crises In (jrermany
Are Multiplying Rapidly
NEW YORK, September 22 (Associated Press) Many
indications of the approach of a political crisis in Germany
may be observed. There is a deep discontent because of the
lack of success of the military campaign, the food situation
adds its' complications and there is certain to be a renewal
of strong demands for political and economical reforms.
The Germania, which is the organ of the Clerical Party in
Berlin, it is reported in a despatch from Copenhagen, declares
for a parliamentary government and insists that the majority
of the parties in the German reichstag are strongly in favor
of thi movement.
Serious food riots continue in Salzburg and some other
cities according to Munich newspapers which have been re
ceived at Zurich. Ai Salzburg the rioters stormed the gov
ernment palace. Gendarmes, called out to quell the disturb
ance fired on the rioters and there were several killed and
wounded. Hotels, food shops and army stores are reported
to have been broken into and plundered by the hunger-crazed
and enraged rioters.

Spirit of Revolt Against Bolshe

This attempt on the life of Trotsky,
following closely upon the attempt of
a woman to Kill Leninp which resulted
in the wounding of that Bolshevist
leader so severely that his recovery for
a time was desnairoil of, marks the
growing resentment of the Russian
people against Bolshevism and their
leterminal Ion to rid themselves of thp
Bed Ipadprs. Conditions of thp people
generally are unbearable and the at
tempt, reported yesterday shows that
the spirit of revolt against the Bol

The (ier'mans fought stubborn
ly throughout a series of isolated
actions against the British during
the past twenty-four hours, in
two instances assuming the offen
sive, hut at all points, after fluc
tuating lines had settled down,
the British were found to be the

some six miles south of the city,
and advancing north to positions
for the outflanking of the major
position from the south.
Yesterday morning the British
assaults upon the Hindejjburg de
fenses north of St. Quentin were
resumed and the advance through
the main line close to the "city,
northwest of Belleglise and north
of Gauchwood, was continued
along a front of more than two
miles and a half. East of Epehy,
further to the north, the British
also advanced during the morn
ing, takintr a number of nrisnn.
It was on this northern section
of the St. Ouentin battle line that
the Hermans counter-attacked in
heavy force and the advanced Bri
tish lines were driven in, from
Veixlhuile, twelve miles north of
St. Ouentin, as far south as Belli-
court, five miles nearer thfl city. The
British came back and the hnttle raged
strongly, ending with the Hritish half
mile in uilvance of their starting point
of the morning and with four hundred
prisonc rs.
Iu Vlanders the British gnined at vn
nous points from west of Messine to
south of
Ypres, improving their poai-
one valuable Dosition
near Ypres.
Collie interesting letters have been
taken from some of the pVisoncrs taken
on the St. Om.ni ia-famhrni frotit

ing done by the (iennan troops in Caul
brni, following th,. ev afimtlon of that
citv by th- civilian population when
the British advance nearcd it.
"We have been living like fighting1
cocks. " says the letter. " We have also
legulailv stolen food from the oflUvers
One otbeer and fifteen guards who haj
rie-l to prevent t taking the food
have been killed. This is the sorrow
