The occasion was a "war food rally"! v?!?J under the auspices of the Patri? ce Food League of Household Em soyes. Chefs from almost all the bo? ils and wealthy families of New York ?re present. Many society women, ?ho have signed pledges that their household shall live on a "short, ration 1 ithedule" until the end of the war, heard their own chefs declare that the Khedule "is _ood enough and nourish? ing enow ph for any one." The schedule which is being circu? lated by "New York's Honor System for food Saving by Volunteer Rationing," requires the pledger to use only a lim? ited amount of sugar, meat and wheat! ? I ?or each person per week. i Heard Their Butler Speak | = Arthur Elliott, butler for Mrs. James '""Speyer, was chairman. Mrs. Speyer sat in a box and watched him preside. L. Gillett, chef for Mrs. F. Gray Gris wold, made a speech in French and Mrs. Griswold, who also sat in a box,: applauded him. Mr. Gillett extolled the "short ration schedule"' adopted by 300 society women. Ho explained that the items on the schedule had been approved by Food Administrator Hoover and that the j schedule provided enough variety, lux- t vry and nourishment for any one. i ( Henry Physick, butler for J. Pier- j , point Morgan and president of the ' league, read a pledge to conserve food, i "Now I want everybody in this hall to signify his whole-hearted support of Mr. Hoover's efforts to save food and il help win the war," said Mr. Physick.jp "The way to signify your approval will be to stand up." Every one in the theatre immediately ^ stood up. Among the society women who joined in this pledge were: : ? Mrs. Kdward S. Hark- Mrs. Henry W. Alcx ncs:,. : ander. Mrs. K. H. Harriman. Mrs. James Lanier. Mrs. W. D. Plon.no. Miss Julianna Cutting.1 Mrs. Robert Bacon. Mrs. Cornelius Vau Mra. Joseph Pulit/.er. . ?icrhilt. 'Mt<. Andrew Carnc-'Mrs. Daniel Guggen- i Kir. 1 heim. Mrs. John D. Rocke- Mrs Charles B. Alex- : feller, jr. ander. Mrs. James B. Speyer.j Every person present also went on record as opposed to hoarding of food. This was adopted as the sense of the meeting. "Any peisri!) in tiie United States ?ho buys more foodstuffs than he cus? tomarily keeps at home in peace times ' is defeating the food administration in its purp??-'1 to secure ;i just distribu? tion of food and in its great endeavors to reduce prices. The hoarding of food in households is not only unnecessary, u the government is protecting the food ?supply of our people, but it is ] ?Ifish and is a cause of high prices, j "Hoarding always throws a sudden strain on the railway system, and be- i cause of our military demands it is ? with extreme difficulty we can now | mflvc the vitally necessary food to markets. "There is much insidious propaganda in the country against, food saving and increase'l production. All opposition to production ami saving is direct assist? ance to the enemy."

Tildsley ?Stale ?Senator George A. Slater's i charge that the Kaiser undoubtedly had paid agents among the teachers in the public schools of New York City has started the Board of Education on another effort to seek out. and punish disloyalists and German propagandists working in the guise ot" instructors. Arthur S. Somers, president of the board, said last night that (lie Sena? tor's statement had jus! been brought to his attention, and that he would refer it to-day to Dr. John L. Tildsley, associate superintendent in charge of high schools, for investigation. "If there are teachers who are dis? loyal nnd teachers who aro actually in the pay of Germany we must reach them." he declared. "I have formed no opinion regarding Mr: Slater's state? ment, and will await 'he result ot* Dr. Tildsley's inquiry." To Ask Slater for Proof Dr. Tildsley, who recently completed a drive against pacifism among the high school teaching staffs, said his first act in the coming investigation would be to ask Senator Slater for any | information he may have concerning teachers who are violating the espion- | age act. "I have no direct evidence that there ? are paid agents of Wilhelmstrasse |. among the high school teachers," he ; ?dded, "but, in view of Germany's con- j sistent policy of planting spies every- i where, I would not be at all surprised j if we were to find them in the city'3 ! schools." Dr. Tildsley also asserted that. Ger? man was fast becoming a dead Ian- : :ruage so far as its study in the schools ivas concerned. Commenting on reports .o Dr. ?lohn II. Finley, State Commission- I er of Education, that many schools in ! ether cities of the stato would have , no beginners' classes in German next term, he declared the same might soon be said of New York City. French and Spanish Popular French and Spanish are fast sun planting the language of the enemy imong the students, Dr, Tildsley said, ind it is understood that organized jfl'orts will be made to encourage the ?tudy of both, to promote international '? goodwill and understanding between he United States and France and help- j ng our trade relations with the great; ipanish countries. The Eastern District High School, in Brooklyn, was cited as showing the do :line of German as a study. Last year n that school there were twelve in tructors in German, six in Spanish and \ our in French. ?Since September the tudents of German have dropped from .100 to 088, while the enrolment in the ipanish classes has increased from 492 o 1,200. , "The popularity of Spanish," said Dr. V. T. Vlymen, principal of the Eastern ' ??strict school, "is due to the consistent dvertising it has received during the ? nst four or five years as the language ? f American trade." Germany long ago realized what rade benefits were to be derived from I nowledge of Spanish. For that reason lany of the teachers of German in few York public schools, if permitted,1 ave only to switch from their fast ying regular classes to rapidly grow ig new classes in Spanish. Hut Dr. 'lymen declared last night that this ?as no indication that the German ! aachers were carrying on propaganda gainst the substitution of French for heir own language in the schools. "Many speak French equally well.". e said, "and could teach that language ??th the same facility as Spanish." 3eaverbrook Named To Succeed Cawley \ppointed to Lancaster Chan? cellorship and Head of Propaganda Department LONDON", Feb. 10.?Baron Cawley las resigned the Chancellorship of the )uchy of Lancaster. This official an louncement was made to-night. Baron leu verb rook has been appointed to suc end him, and will also take charge of he propaganda department, of which 5ir Edward Carson was recently the ? iead.

He vas born in New Brunswick, Canada, n 1879, and is the son of a noted icotch minister, tho Rev. William Ait :en.

"Germany Will Be Beaten," P Pershing's Message to Nation 3ishop Wilson, Back From Battlefront, Exhorts America, to Exert All Energies Toward Victory 1 and Enduring Peace "Say this -it is a great heresy to < believe Germany cannot be beaten. Say ! to America that Germany can be beaten, that Germany must be beaten ! ( and that Germany will be beaten!" I 1 This message, addressed by General | Pershing to the people of the United . States, was delivered yesterday morn? ing by Bishop Luther B. Wilson, of the ' Methodist Episcopal Church, to a con- ? gregation which packed the Park Ave- ! j nue Church, Park Avenue and Eighty- \ t sixth Street. Bishop Wilson returned ; j lately from a tour of the battle fronts | , of France and Italy. Just before he i sailed for home he visited General Per- \ 1 shing's headquarters and obtained the message. "Pershing is right," declared the , I Bishop in his sermon. "Germany must ( . be defeated. I donot believe the cause I , in which we are fighting is contrary to ; ? the spirit of the gospel of Our Saviour. ! i I believe this war is really carrying out ; i that gospel. I cannot bring myself to '? < believe that auto/cracy can win this! t war. In the name of (Jod, it must not i I be. I cannot believe the civilization ? ? that has been developed- -the levels ' ?' that have been lifted in the world; the i t lives that have been lost in the de- I ?' fence of the common people ?shall go for naught. It must not be." < A National Duty i Bishop Wilson asserted that the war j t constitutes a humanitarian service in \ \ which the United States should feel ! i itself obligated to participate, even if 1 the Central Powers had not violated ; the rights of American citizens. ? ] "If the Lusitania never had been ? sunk," he said, "if never one- single ! ; American life had been assailed, I ' ' maintain it would have boen proper and j well worth while for America to take i : its place on the side of humanity. We i i U. S. Officer Held ] With Two Others In German Plot ? ; Secret Federal Papers Are ; j Found in Brooklyn ; Movie , Promoter Held A captain in the United States army ? has been arrested, it was learned yes- ] terday from Assistant United States t Attorney Beer, and is held in Washing? ton following the discovery,of govern- I ment documents of the highest impor? tance in the Brooklyn home of Felix ] Malitz, who, with his secretary. Gus- t tuve Engler, is under arrest charged with spreading German propaganda in a this country. r Malitz, who until a few weeks ago ; was president of the American Cor- | "" cspondence Film Company, of 12 Kector ; 0 street, was arrested with his secretary ? a ?n the charge of attempting to smug- j ^ rle rubber out of the country to Ger- '? a nany. When arraigned before Federal i m "udgo Chatfield additional charges of ? w preading German propaganda were ' iadf against him. and he was locked up ' n the Raymond Street jail in default f 510,000 bail. A few days ago Federal officials earched his rooms. The documents j hat they found there were at once rc urned to the War Department at Washington and the arrest of the army aptain followed. Mr. Beer said yes erday that Malitz had obtained these I apers with the help of the officer. The Federal attorney also charged hat the captain had acted as go-be ween for Malitz in bis purchase of he picture rights of Ambassador lerard's book, "My Four Years in Ger lany." Malitz has been producing a moving licture, "Battles of a .Nation." This, ?lr. Beer said, is a clever piece of Ger? man propaganda. He added that h?^ rlieved Malitz to be one of the most langerous pro-Germans in the country. It is understood that the captain rc ently obtained his commission in the s'ational Army. He is said to have ????de a speech, very pro-German in ??no, since he entered the service. ITie War Department at Washington vould not discuss the matter last night. -v Women Supervisors In War Plants Named [Staff Correspondence] WASHINGTON, Feb. 10.?Mrs. Clara il.

' ' Bronze Prussian Must Go to Work, Patriots Declare Vielt Statue of Frederick the Great Into Bullets, Say? Henry A. Wise Wood Frederick the Great, founder of the 'russian system which his great-great rrcat-greatnephew, the present Kaiser, s following so disastrously, may have o come down from the pedestal in ront of the War College in Washing on, where he was placed as the gift f Wilhelm Hohenzollern, and aid the itars and Stripes in wiping out Prus ia and all her works. Patriotic Americans here were heart- ? Iy in favor yesterday of conscripting ? he bronze Prussian monarch, and put- ' c :ing him to work against his own gov- e ;rnment at once. Among a diversity of opinions as to what use a republic . ould put a Hohenzollern king, two met g vith special favor. I Every time one of our soldiers hurts c he Kaiser's feelings by some spe- ? tally daring deed against his forces, o et the Kaiser pay for the decoration v ic gets. In other words, have Fred- t rick the Great, the German Em- j leror's gift to America, melted up into : g v_r medals. That was one suggestion. Other nore scrupulous persons urged that : ( his would not be quite fair and pro .osed that the statue be returned to iermany?in the shape of bullets and ?hells fired across No Man's Land. I ?nothing, they said, could be fairer han this. Henry A. Wise Wood's Plan To this second suggestion, Hanry A. ? ^ ?Vise Wood offered an amendment, h Melt Frederick into bullets by all c neans, he said, but do not bother to ! r ?hip him abroad.
