Governor Calls
Food Conference
Mayors and Market Com'
missioners to M e e t
in Albany Wednesday
A conference of mayors and munici?
pal market commissioners has been
called for Wednesday at Albany by
Governor Smith to discuss means of
prompt distribution of surplus army
food supplies to the people at reduced
prices. The conference, according to
an announcement from Albany yester?
day, will begin ai noon. Both the Gov?
ernor and the Commissioner of Foods
fc-;ul Markets will attend, and the plan
devised will be communicated to all
cities and towns for adoption.
The Governor's invitation to the con?
ference was addressed to the mayors
of New York ('it;.. Yonkors, Pough
fceepsie, Newburgh, Albany, Tro;.. Sche
"?ectady, Utica, Syracuse, Rochester,
Buffalo, Watertown, Plattsburgh, Bing
fiamton, Elmira and Jamestown.
Those mayors who cannot attend are
?requested to send market commission?
ers or other representatives.
Governor Smith says largo army sup?
plies are on hand in various govern?
ment warehouses throughout the state,
? ??.insisting of canned meats and vege
l^bles. His i lea is to devise ineaVs of
getting these supplies into the hands
'??f the people at practically the prices
required in payment to the government.
The Governor held a conference
faturday with the heads of the hos?
pital and charities departments, the
-tat?' orisons, the State Architect and
the Commissioner of Foods and Mar?
kets on the ??Liest ion of purchasing
army food, housing und medical sup?
plies for the inmates of the various
state institutions. The .state, it is
said, is preparing to take over large
quantities of blankets, bods and laun?
dry machinery. The Governor has
communicated with the Secretary of
War and is awaiting permission from
him to have a committee visit the Sche
icctady warehouse and inspect the
goods to determine whether the state
can use them.
League Asks Wilson
To Punish Officials
anthracite Consumers Say
Government Men Aid
Trusts and Profiteers
Special Com siiondence
POTTSVILLE, Penn., Aug. 3.?The.
ti rat i te Consumers' League has re?
quested President Wilson to discipline
a number of heads of government de?
partments and bureaus as "the most
efficient eo?perators with trusts and
monopolies profiteering in the neces?
sities of life." The league, of which
Charles Meyers, a former coal oper?
ator and publisher <>f the "Evening
Chronicle," is president, and Frank ('.
Reese, of the Pennsylvania Highway
Department, secretary, offers to fur?
nish tie President with proof that
the coal administration and a num?
ber of other special government war
boards, as well as many dollar-a-year
men, served organized business inter?
ests rather than the people.
Mr. Reese, in a statement issued
to-day, instances the War Depart?
ment's effort to withhold surplus army
food supplies from sale in America.
He also asserts that while govern?
ment agencies are assisting the coal
Operators to make the country believe
there is a coal shortage, so prices may
be further increased, there ;s a sur?
plus of coal now aggregating 400,
000 tons because prices already have
reached a level which is reducing de?
mand.
Both Mr. Reese and Mr. Meyers
say that as the price of coal is the
basis of all manufacturing costs, re?
ducing the cost of fuel will react fa?
vorably to the consumer in reducing
tho price of necessaries.

PARIS, Aug. 3 (By The Associated;
Press).- The inhabitants of the 18th |
Ward, which includes the Montmartre
District met this morning in the local1
City Hall to form a consumers' league.

Hie majority of New York gro?
cers to ration their customers last
week is expected to be relieved this
week. The United Slates Sugar
Equalization Board, 111 Wall Street,,
has taken over 17,000,000 pounds of '
army sugar.
The army cugar is not to he dis?
tributed directly to the public, but
will be turned over to food manu

: and other public institutions. This
i will leave most of the refiners* out?

A week from to-day it is planned
to hold in New York the first sale of
army food, twenty-five carloads, con?
sisting principally of bacon and
canned goods. By that time Deputy
Market Commissioner Edwin C.

cessivcly and that they are propor?
tionate to the wholesale prices. A spe?
cial point made at the meeting was
that methods of violence should not
he a part of the movement.
It was proposed to visit tho selling
districts, and u procession was formed.
; Sellers of goods were visited by the
crowd from JO o'clock until midday
and questioned a? to prices, such as
why tomatoes should vary from 35 to
.".(!, 60 and SO centimes a pound, why
carrots were -10 centimes a bundle on
some carts and 70 and 80 centimes on
others, and similar inconsistencies.
The news of the movement spread
quickly and resulted in the scaling
?down of some prices, the sellers chang?
ing tickets on their goods before the
arrival of the investigators.
Swiss Socialists
Want Food Seized
BERNE, Aug. 3.?The Swiss Socialist
party issued u manifesto to-day in
! dorsing the demands of the Basle and
Zurich Strikers. The manifesto de
| ninnds. among ?|.ther things, confisca?
tion of all stocks of foodstuffs, clothes
and shoes; and introduction o? a state
mopcpoly of imports and exports, so as
to control profits and prevent specula
t ion.
it was announced at a meeting of tho
Federal Council here yesterday that
the strike movement was stationary at
Basle and decreasing at Zurich.
GENEVA, Aug. 3 (By The Associated
Press).?Troops sent by the govern?
ment to quell strike riots at Basle and
Zurich were forced to use machine
I guns mounted on automobiles during
tin disorders Friday. The strikers at
Basle ripped up the pavements and
bombarded the troops, injuring many.
A number of strikers were killed and
wounded and many were arrested.
At Basel the outbreak was said to
j be of a Bolshevik character, while at
Zurich the disorders were attributed
to the increasing cost of living.
Newspapers have ceased publication
and tramways have discontinued run?
ning at Basle. Operation of the gas
and electric services is threatened. The
ringleaders of tho strike are reported
to be youths eighten and twenty years
old. The military are guarding all
banks and factories.
?Last of Newark's Army
Bacon U ill Go on Sale
At Firehouses To-day
NEWARK, N. J., Aug. 3.?The last
of the 5,000 pounds of Mayor Gillen's
bacon will be placed on sale to-morrow
in the city's firehouses, and as soon as
this is disposed of the first of the fifteen
tons of the sugar-cured hams obtained
by the .Mayor from the surplus stock
of the army will be offered to the
public at 32 cents a pound-?16 to 23,
cents a pound less than retail market
prices. It is expected the hams will
be sold in a day and a half.
In some sections of the city it is
planned to cut some of the larger hams
in half, so that the cost will not be
beyond the reach of poor families.
Taxica b Kills Boy;
ChauffeurArrested j
Three Children Injured; \
Driver Found Packing
Suitcase in Brooklyn i
A taxicab knocked down three chil?
dren crossing Jamaica Avenue, Rich?
mond Hill, Queens, at North Curtis Ave?
nue, yesterday. The victims were Emma
Kraft, six years old; her sister, Lydia,
seven, and Adolph Fisher, four, all ot
b523 North Curtis Avenue.
The driver of tho taxicab stopped a
large touring car which was passing,
placed the children in it and bade the
chauffeur speed to St. Mary's Hospital,
Jamaica. Catching sight, of two patrol?
men on the way he had the car stopped
that they also might get in.
At the hospital he helped the patrol
men carry the injured children inside. !
It was found the boy had been killed j
outright. On hearing the surgeon's ver- ?
diet the taxicab driver turned and I
walked out of the room. A moment j
later, it is said, he was telling the driver I
of tho touring car it was "all right" and '
to take him to 238 Seventeenth Street,
Brooklyn.
On the way the driver of the touring
cur became suspicious and, after leaving \
his chance acquaintance at the Seven- i
teenth Street address, telephoned to the
police, whom he found on the point of
sending out a general alarm for the
taxicab driver. A patrolman was sent
to the Seventeenth Street house and ar?
rested Michael Kusik, whom he found
packing a suitcase.
The two little girls probably will re?
t-over, though the elder one has a frac?
ture of the right arm as well as severe
lacerations.

Seven Newspaper Men
Die in Burning 'Plane
MILAN, Aug. 3 (By The Associated
Press).?Seven journalists were among
the fifteen persons who were burned to |
death near Verona Saturday, when a
large Caproni airplane in flight from
Venice to Milan cuught fire at an alti?
tude of 5,000 feet. Among the journal?
ists was Signor Zanghieri, correspond?
ent of "The Chicago Daily News." The
pilot of the machine was Lieutenant
Rcsnati, a brother of the late Captain
Antonio Silvio Resnati, who was killed
while flying a Caproni at Mine?la, N.
Y.. last year.
Nobody in the 'plane escaped. The i
machine was attempting to lower the I
speed record between Venice and Milan
and suddenly burst into flames and fell
to earth. The cause of the disaster has
not been ascertained. |

. officer describes that industry as al
j ready dead. On the day the armistice
i was signed the Liberty motor factories
were turning out the big aviation en
: gines at the rate of 4,000 a month. If
; an order for Liberties were placed to?
morrow it would be about six months
: before the first one could be delivered.
From the standpoint of immediate pro
I duction of aircraft we arc about back
to where we were in April, 1917 which
, was nowhere. The aircraft plants have
; been dismantled and tho industries that
were converted to aircraft production
' during the war are all hack at their old
. jobs. We still have the advantage over
! 1917 of having thousands of skilled
j workmen, many experienced engineers
and a largo supply of "know-how," but
even this advantage has been i'ost, tem?
porarily at least, by the breaking up of
organizations and the dispersion of
their members.
Planned for $83.000,000
General Menoher, chief of the air
service, complying with his epigram
that "aeronautics is ready for business,
but business is not ready for aeronau?
tics," believed that it was good na?
tional policy from a business as well
' as a military standpoint to maintain
a substantial air force and purchase
annually for its use about :t thousand
. airplanes of various types, to say
nothing of dirigibles and other avia?
tion apparatus. He planned to spend
I about $60,000,000 a year on purchase?
and engineering development in the
government's own plants.. At that time
he was asking for $83,000,000. Congress
cut this figure to $25,000,000, and the
House wanted to make it only $15,000,
000. Congress also specifically refused
authority for tho acquisition of the
Dayton-Wright plant at Dayton as an
engineering and experimentation lab?
ra tor.v.
Now General Menoher fifindfifis that
about all he can do with his limited
funds to keep abreast of the times is
to maintain some sort of engineer?
ing staff and keep it busy on the tech?
nique of aircraft production. But he
can do absolutely nothing in the way
of patronage for nmnufacturcrs, who
cannot retain any appreciable degree
of their war time capacity on commer?
cial patronage. It was considered good
national industrial policy to keep some
of the plants alive with government
business while the commercial demand
for airships was developing. When the
plants are supported commercially they
always will be ready for a war emer?
gency. In the mean time it was con?
sidered sound military policy to keep
them ready for an emergency through
a liberal amount of government patron?
age.
Other Nations Go Ahead
With the failure of Congress to re?
spond to General Monoher's views,
there results neither commercial nor
military airplane production. Other
nations are developing military and
commercial aviation hand in hand, and
are holding u large part of the prog?
ress in aeronautics that was made dur?
ing the war?an advance estimated to
be equal to that of 25 years of ordi?
nary progress.
Great Britain has sought not only to
maintain its production plants in
readiness for another emergency, but
has deliberately set out through a* part?
nership of government and private in?
dustry to become easily the first air?
ship building and operating nation in
the world. The British appropriations
are at the rate of $325,000,000 a year,
as against our army and navy total of
$50,0ii0,000. As much as $15,*000,000 is
being spent directly on commercial
aviation, partly in meeting the cost pf
what amounts to a world-wide propa?
ganda for the British aeronautical in
duBtries. Air terminals are being i
established, air lines are being subsi- i
dized, British officers are going all over
the world as aviation instructors and ;
as commercial travellers, and are assist- :
ing in the establishment of air lines in
regions, like South America, that are
particularly favorable to their intro?
duction. "If the Air Ministry," says
"The London Times," "shall continue
these propaganda demonstrations, car?
rying them out in all countries wher- ?
ever practicable, there is no reason
why we should not collect almost the -j
whole aircraft manufacturing industry
of the world, as in the days before the j
war British shipyards ' tilt warships I
for the world."
Falling Rapidly Behind
One of General Menoher's plans was I
she gained during the war and America
retrogressing very rapidly aviation au?
thorities in the army and navy say
that we are now three years behind
England on buoyant aircraft and at i
least eighteen months behind in
I heavier-than-air machines, and the gaps
' are widening on both sides. The
?United States, for instance, has not;
; yet built a single rigid dirigible?like ?
the R-34?yet England is now building1
eight much larger ones. Our navy is !
planning to buy one rigid "dirigible in
England and build another here.
France is spending $200,000,000 a year
en aviation.
One of General Menohor's plans was
to establish landing fields all ovei
the country with local cooperation, as
one of the first essentials of the gen
: eral use of airplanes are spacious and
: convenient terminals. But he has had
- no funds with which to assist, and
i about all he has been able to do is to
, offer some A. E. F. hangars to local
authorities.
In the present temper of Congress,
aviation experts do not see any hope
for the United States to take first
place in aviation. Congress is more
interested in rinding out what was
don with the $1,200,000,000 during the
war .than it is in spending new money
on aviidion. A searching investigation
was begun hist week and aviation en?
thusiasts i hink that it will have a de?
pressing effect on the whole aviation
outlook.
Tlie actual war expenditures, after
allowance is made for sales of sur?
plus materials and equipment, now in
process, will be perhaps $1,100,000,
000. The authorized expenditures for
1019 alone were $760,000,000 and con?
tracts covering almost all this sum
were let before the armistice was
signed. Tin- culmination of American
aviation strength was planned for the
midsummer of 1919, by which time it
was expected that, we would have more
machines in service at the front than
the French and British combined.
Gol 10,000 Machines
For this huge sum we got, amonp
other things, approximately 10,001
'planes and 31,000 engines from Amer?
ica, n makers and 5,000 'planes and 10,
000 engines from foreign makers
chiefly French. Most of this vast
? qulpment is still on hand. It is im?
possible to say how much of it is nov
virtually scrap and how much has
been scrapped At one time 1,60(
i training engines were virtually takei
out of commission, though they hav?
not been disposed of yet. The onlj

j made are 1,01(5 JN-4 D training 'planei
i and 1,100 Standard J-l 'planes an?

liouse Here Would Be
Open lo Marines Also; To
Keep Sailors Ofl' Streets
A movement to establish a perma?
nent clubhouse for enlisted men of the
navy and Marine Corps was laun .hod
last night at a meeting at the. Navy
Club, 509 Fifth Avenue. It was an?
nounced that $1,000,000 would be neces?
sary and that a campaign to obtain
this sum will be started this week.
The project grew out of the desire
of the olliciuls of the present Navy
Club to erect some sort of memorial
In honor of the sailors and marines
who took part in the World War. They
also felt thnt sailors should not be
permitted to go back to the life they
led before the conflict, when they hat
no place tc go but the saloon, an'
that the solution of the problem wit;
the establishment of clubhouses in rl
seaports.
The meeting last night was addressee
by J. Maxwell Carrere, executive sec
retary of the scope and plans commit
tee which hits the direct:on of the pro.i
ect in in hand; Mrs. William E. Hantil
ton, vice-president of the Navy Club,
and C. E, O'Donovan, chief yeoman |
heading the sailors' committee.
Mr, Carrero said that many of the j
city's most prominent and wealthy men, !
including J. P. Morgan, Lieutenant !
Vincent Astor, Herbert L. Satterlee and i
Junius S. Morgan, were supporting the
undertaking, and that it had the in- i
dorsement of the Navy Department. !
It has been planned, he said, to have ;
100,000 enlisted men pay $1 a year i
as membership fees to assure main- !
tenance of the organization and to en- !
courage the establishment of like clubs ;
in other seaports.
Mrs. Hamilton said it would be the
greatest aid in developing a high moral
standard among the young men. i
"Besides," she said, "the time is past !
when we can let our sailors wander the
streets as they did before the war.
England has long ago recognized the
need of rest houses for her seamen,
and it is time we did something here."
Chief Yeoman O'Donovan explained
that the new organization would be run
entirely by the enlisted men themselves, |
and that it would undoubtedly grow j
into a strong body, with power to ob- ?
tain the ear of government officials,;
when that was necessary.

ECENTLY we have heard
that the "waist-seam"
model, because it is both in?
correct and extreme, is to go
its very creator is said to be
abandoning it.
You may have noted that we
have never shown it?believing
it incorrect and not suited to
the wardrobe of a correctly
groomed New Yorker,
Our impression of the "waist-seam"
idea, now confirmed, proves anew
that wise selection centers upon
correct style?style that endures.
Our patrons are always assured that
the style will wear as long as the
cloth?a highly desirable assurance.
