THE SUN, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10, FOOD BOARD URGES AFTERNOON TEA LID Appeal Asks Also That Tlica tro Suppers and Fourth Meals Bo Abolished. THANKSGIVING 'MEAL HIT 3Iovo Started to Serve Only State Products," Which May . Bar Turkeys. the Federal Food Hoard of New Tork yesterday mnde a uneclal request that the fiublto so without afternoon teas, the tro suppers and all fourth meaU. Every body In these times should bo satisfied with three meals a day the board says. As a distinct measure of food con servation and to demonstrate how food tnay be sayed by uslns; local supplies the board, on behalf of the hotel and res taurant division, requests all hotels, res taurants, clubs and other public eating places "to servo on ThanktglvlnB Day b dinner entirely made- up of food pro duced In th State In which the restau rant Is located," The board Is anxious that this Thanksglvlnit programme bo adopted also In all homes. The special request that all fourth Wats be eliminated for a while, signed by John Mitchell, president of the board, tand Arthur Williams, Federal Food Ad ministrator for this city, says: "Since 'the conservation of sugar and ' nil cereals Is of vital Importance the Food Administration is asking that af ternoon teas be discontinued until food conditions are less serious. The con sumption of sandwiches, cakes and us;ar, which usually accompany after noon ton- U an unnecessary waste of rVi'dstuffs. V Dispense With Extra Mtl. "While the Food Administration rec ognises the value of social gatherings tvhore refreshments are served. It be lieves that the hours for these functions can and should be so regulated that they take the place of one of the three regu lar meals. Indeed, such a meat may well serve as a lesson In Intelligent, food conservation, "In Franco and England no meals are served after 9 :30 o'clock at night, and In both countries public eating places ara closed for a definite period during the afternoon. The Food Administration now asks the United States to fall Into line and cut out theatre suppers, after noon teas, and all 'fourth' meals, and make the banquet, club luncheon or tihurch supper p. simple substitute for on of the three dally meals." Ths Food Administration plan for a "homo product" Thanksgiving dinner Is eet forth in a letter ent by the Hotel snd Restaurant Division to all State chairmen. J "Everything served at the dinner. In - order to carry out the purpose of this request." the letter Bays, "should be a Lome product. By eating only homo i;rown foods the public will be helping tlio transportation facilities throughout the country. Plea Made to Houseirlrc. , "While the Federal Food Board has no , thought or making any request which would Interfere with the festival spirit of the national holiday, nt the same time . It desires to call the attention of house wives of New Tork Stato to the fact that tho necessity for saving food, par i llcularly meats, fats and sugar, should not be lost sight of on Thanksgiving Day." If the forthcoming Thanksgiving1 Day dinner Is u "home product" feast In all public eating houses and In homes, such us has been suggested, it moan" that tho centrepiece of tho "spread" will not be turkey or chicken, as New York's tur- lioya and poultry come from other States, long Island ducklings are popular as v, substitutes, but It Is known that there wouldn't be half enough for the holi days. However, It would be possible to tall back on roasting pigs, veal and pork, which the Stato does produce, but not In sufficient quantities to go around. Resides the price of suckling pigs would be such that only a comparatively tovr peoplo could afford theni. Long Island grows some cranberries and New Jersey raises a lot. but fully 80 per cent, of the entire supply comes from Cape Cod, and New Yorkers would have to be satisfied with less than their usual amount of cranberry sauce If It de pended altogether on Long Island ber ries. Plenty of Vegetables In State. Mr. Foy, the market reporter, says the fitate could get along very well on Thanksgiving Day with its State grown potatoes, turnips, cabbages, celery and pumpkins. He said there Is a great fall ing off this year In the number of Long Island ducks. Ordinarily the Long Isl and duck growers raise about 7,000,000 pounds a year, but thii year's output fell oft about 40 per cent. There are In tho freezers now not more than 50 per cent, of ducklings as compared with Oils time last year. Turkey growers In Texas have begun to dress birds for the Thanksgiving mar )tet. Mr. Foy says these turkeys are costing 25 cents a pound alive at the dressing houses. He believes these tur keys will cost 35 to 37 cents a pound laid down In New York, or from 40 to 42 cents wholesale Tho retail price of Toxas birds will be about 45 cents n pound, while fancy Western turkeys will , rang around 60 cents. The Food Admln j lstratlon regulations forbid the killing of lien turkeys weighing less than eight j. pounds and of toms weighing under i eleven pounds, but In Texas hen -turkeys of seven and toms of ten pounds can be Itltled and marketed, f The Federal Food Board announces ' that the Retail Grocers Association has Adopted a standardized form of pledge which will be accepted by the board for the issuance of sugar certificates to re tail grocers. To savo repetition and to facilitate checking and recording of the householders' purchases the purchaser will be asked by the retailer If a pledge card has already been signed (a) at this , store, (b) at any other store, giving the , name of the other store. The household sirs must always report the number In the family. Including all help but not ln- eluding guests. Police Car Imitators Sought. Trouble Is brewing for those over- ahrewd automobile owners who have been enjoying Immunity from traffic cops tocause of a display of Police Depart ment signs on the front and rear ends of their motor cars.

MORE BRITISH SHIPS IN WITHOUT CONVOY Mostly Army and Navy Of ficers in a Combined Fas scnger List of 311). Two British passenger steamshipj ar rived in an Atlantic port yesterday after uneventful crossings without convoy The first vessel to arrive carried sc-enty-nlne passengers, chiefly British, Australian and Canadian officers, fjono of these soldiers expressed tho slightest Interest as to whether Germany had given up or not and one of them ex pressed tho general sentiment that "We've got the Huns licked and might as well carry on until the Job Is finished In German territory." One of the British officers was Lleui. Claude De Vltalls of 70 Holler Parkway, Newark, who has been in the war since early in 1315 and has returned to be transferred to the American nying rorce.

BANDITS HOLD UP DEMOCRATS AT CLUB Jlobhors, Invado Political Stronghold 25 Feet From Folico Station. GAG, THEN ROB VICTIMS Automobilo Used in Flight With Loot Down Brook- lyn Thoroughfare. ,Elnochle. (Just to give It a name) was absorbing the attention of alx Demo cratic statesmen of the Brooklyn Four teenth Assembly District yesterday at 2:30 A. St. In the clubhouse at 267 Bedford avenue, within twenty-five feet of tho Bedford avenue police station, when the doors of the po iplnochle room were (lung open by five masked and dominoed Intruders. Pinochle, or any other mathematical diversion carried on with tho pasteboards Invented to amuso a crazy king, requires concentration. As soon as the gay bandits arrived be hind five Bteadlly pointed revolvers the six Democrats found themselves utterly, unable to keep their minds on tho cards. "Hay," protested one of the players, "what Is this, a Joke.T' "Joke, nothing," replied the leader of the Invaders. "Get up, line up and pony up!" Six Democrats Looted, The six Democrats draped themselves against a wall and remained passive, covered by four revolvers, while the leader of the festive band searched them adroitly and thoroughly. The search produced $1,200 In cash and some booty In Jewelry which might defy acid. Thereupon the six Democrats were gagged and tied to chairs. Still covering tho depressed but help less Democrats, the ready bandits backed to the doorway, their leader bowing with meek politeness, and disappeared. They were seen to Jump Into a big tour ing car, which rapidly faded out of sight In Bedford avenue. Shortly after 3 A. iM. one of the looted statesmen wriggled looso from his bonds, released his bereaved companions and then together they hastened across the street and told tho police of the Bedford ave nue station of the 111 luck that had be fallen them. The lieutenant, somewhat vexed at such a contretemps In the shadow of his station house, got ex tremely busy, but up to last night there had been no results from this activity. There was moro than a suspicion around the clubhouse that the robbers wore seeking tits "roll" of State Senator Daniel J. Carroll, leader of the district, for senator Carroll was reputed to carry a argo 8um jn caBh. He had left the .. l. . . - i-nM ... . . . v. - Ml riuunuunu, iivi , t ti , ucivid did lui- lectors knocked. Calls Hold Up Joke. Senator Carroll himself pooh-poohed the robbery yesterday saying: "It was nothing but a Joke. I have learned that the "holdup" men were memoers or n ciuo returning irom a masqueraoe nan ana iriai iney wamea to get the fun of a practical Joke. I understand that the 'loot' has been re turned to Its owners." That is not, however, the view that the Brooklyn pollceitake of tho affair. The police say It was ono of the most daring robberies committed In years. On February 13 in' the old Twenty-first ARsemDiy District iteputmcan ciuu tnere was a similar' robbery which resulted In the murder of Policeman Samuel Itosenfeld by Jacob Cohen, who Is now , In he de3th '10u'e at slne slnS- TAX SALE OF HOME A SECRET 45 YEARS Mrs. George "Weeks of Corona Notified in 1916 of an Action in 1871. The oddest case of all In tho tax salo Investigation was encountered yesterday by Commlroloner of Accounts David Hirschfield, -who Is cooperating with the Mayor's Committee on Taxation. Mrs. George Weeks of 9 Cambridge street. Corona, testified that land on 'which her home stands had been owned by her family since 1S84, and taxes paid every year. Her father, before buying, had the title searched back to 1871. And lo! Mrs. Weeks was notified by the County of Queens In 1S16 that tho low had been sold In 1916 for the unpaid taxes of $1.93 for the year 1871, due what was then the village of West Flushing. Mrs. Tlllle Yourman of 16 Alston ave nue, Crotona, testified that adjoining lots which she and her husband bought from the mother of Mrs. Weeks were sold by the county nt the same time as part of the eame parcel. Murray Horrowltz bought the lien on both properties and assigned It to Dora Pines, and In order to recover It and clear her tltlo Mrs. Yourman had to pay $100 to the ngent of the buyer, Theodore I. Schwartzman of 189 Montague street, Brooklyn. Schwartzman assured her, she testified, that she was getting off cheaply. Another witness, Gerald S. Griffin of West 215th street and Park Terrace, Manhattan, said that without notlco to him from the tax office his property at .10 Vj Norfolk street wis sold last Jan nuary for a tax of $340.25. He said that Schwartzman. as representative of Abram Altman, the buyer, demanded $100 for his own services In addition to the amount of the back tax and assess ments, the wliolo amounting to $469. Grimn paid It Altman as a tax sale buyer and Schwartzman as his agent, also figured In the story of Miss Ella L. Phillips of 408 Vanderbllt avenue, Brooklyn. She said that to nor amazement she hail learned that her two lots In Freeport, L I., which she thought unencumtwred, wero EOld in 1916 to Altman for $2.66 apleco, tho amount of a hack tax. For redemption Schwartzman demanded $100, Miss Phillips paid, and when she threat ened to tell tho story to the Mayor's committee he laughed and said no one on earth could tell him what to charge for his services. Commissioner Hirschfield telephoned to Schwartzman, who begged to bo ex cused from nttendtng the hearing be causo his wife was 111, Key Men's fltrlke Postponed. There will be no strike to-morrow of the 1,200' commercial telegraphers work Ing In this city.

J GUESTS HELP AS PLAZA WAITERS QUIT Officers in Uniform Assist, While Women Find Novelty of Self-service at Improvised Table Is "Delightful." Perhaps the Idea that New York wilt try anything once, and succeed In the trying, never dawned upon 200 or more waiters and cooks who deliberated for a long time yesterday and then de cided to go out on strike at Just the moment the lea rooms at tho Plaza ,Hotel wero beginning to take on the usual C o'clock atmosphcro of activ ity. As the waiters and cooks filed haught ily out of tho rear doors after being, told that tho management' would not even entertain their demands (or, a 50 per cent. Increase In pay, tho Plaza's smart patrons were arriving, to be met among the tea tables by anxious manag ers, assistant managers and converted clerks who told them that, really, there was practically no one to serve tho 5 o'clock delicacies. The slluntlon was serious for' only the briefest moment, howover, many of the women who sat unserved at the tables wero escorted by officers In uni form and had Just completed the war time task of serving sinkers, candy, so Op and multitudinous other things in tho canteens spread over the city for the hungry doughboy. Almost beforo the strikers had moved three blocks south In Fifth avenue, an Improvised service' table had been set up In the Plaza din ing rooms and tho novelty of self-service for the first time In the hlfctory of a big Now York hotel had been trans ferred from Park Bow, In more than one lristnnco officers, some of them wearing American Uni forms and others the uniforms of va rlouti allied armies, did the serving. Two of tho young women who helped themselves announced tho Idea was "per fectly wonderful." "Wo didn't take tea," vouchsafed one, "because wo be lieved It would prove too cumbersome In carrying. So we Just took cocktails In stead." "I think It perfectly charming," ex plained the other. "Ihall never bother with waiters again. I think It does ono CROWDS APATHETIC IN KAISER'S CRISIS Report of Abdication Stirs Scarcely a Nipple in Any Section of City. In sharp - contrast to tho wild en thusiasm in the city Thursday upon receipt of tho premature report that tho war had ended, thcro was scarcely a ripple of excitement yesterday aftvr the publication In the afternoon papers of the German wireless despatch that the Kaiser had abdicated and that the Crown Prince had renounced his succes sion to the German throne. The quiet unconcern with which the report was greeted was amazing. Tho streets were thronged with the usual Saturday afternoon crowds es pecially in the theatre and shopping dis tricts but there was no parading, no cheering, no deluge of paper from the windows of office buildings. Nothing, in fact, indicated that anything unusual had happened. Students of crowd i psychology gave two causes for tho calmness with which the metropolis recelscd the news. It was pointed out that tho withdrawal of the house of Holienzonem nau larsw h-n discounted by the many provious reports of tho samo tenor and that hav- hn- cut looso In such a riotous manner only two days before, tho town's avail able supply of enthusiasm was sud- normal the reservoir had been drained dry and not enough time had elapsed ror it to replenish itself. Wonld Not Itlslc lie Ins Fooled. The afternoon papers earning the wireless report wero on the downtown streets soon after 4 o'clock. Big black headlines blazoned forth tho news, but there was no wild rush to buy nnd not a single newsboy was at any time In tho slightest danger of being mobbed. Men and women continued their orderly way along the sidewalks. Intent, apparently, upon their own concerns without fully grasping the tremendous significance of the historic event across the seas or realising Its portent to n world which fori more than four years has been In torment provided the report was true. Thfy had been fooled Thursday. It is easy to foul the American peoplo once. but It takes no chances on a tecond attempt. Tho calmness of downtown NVw Voik was duplicated in tho shopping district In Herald Square the size of tho crowd in front of tho newspaper bulletin board was scarcely larger than Is usual on Saturday afternoon. No noise, no toss ing of hats Into the air and no hand shaking was to b seen. The whlto Jacketed fraternity which administer to the nfedH of the thirsty in that section of the city asserted to a man that even the buying of drinks was not noticeably ac celerated. The same apathy existed nt Hroadway and Forty-second street, at Columbus Circle and at all other centres. Newsies Fnll to Stir Crowd. By C o'clock the newsstands were flooded with late editions of the publlo prints apparently establishing tho au thenticity of the abdication. Hut tho rush to buy papers was scarcely greater than earlier In the afternoon. The arti ficial freniy of tho newsies, elaborately stimulated for business purposes, simply wouldn't catch. Tho news venders couldn't understand It, Nor could any one else except iersons who had been fooled on Thursday, As the evening wore on tho ordinary rush of Saturday night patrons flowed Into hotels, restaurants, theatres and cabarets. Ruslnesn was brisk, but' no more so than usual. There wns some sporadic cheering as tho night grew oldT. lint no mor than usual. So far as any real outburst of popular emotion wai concerned, there wasn't even a flicker of the riotous enthusiasm of Thursday. It Just wasn't there. INSANE SHOOTER SOUGHT. Harry Thuyer Flees to Oranite Mountains Victim In Iluspltlil Harry Thayer, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Thayer of Dodd street, Newark, N, J., was to have been examined Mon day as to his Mjnlty. Yesterday he mot Henry Uutcher of 32 .Meadow street. East Orange, drew a revolver nnd fired without a word. Thayer Jumped on his bicycle nnd disappeared in tho direction of the Ornngo Mountains. Uutcher was taken to the Mountainside Hospital, i Glen Ridge, with a bullet in his head. . . av , . . , . . 4 pusn! oi ouu j'ernunn in auiumoones and motor cycles nnd bicycles sturted a search for the fugitive. Thayer has been In n sanitarium on several occasions, THEMSEL VES a great deal of good to make sacrifices, at certain times of course." Capt. Alexander fiapelll of tho Italian army, watched the breaking of the strike wltii a great display of Interest. "It Is remarkable," ho said, "how you Ameri cans adjpt yoursolf to circumstances." A similar situation was averted at the Vandcrbilt Hotel, because the manage ment there knew the strike was contem plated by tho waiters arid had prepared ibr It by employing trained negro wait ers. Tho strike started nt the luncheon hour In both hotels and was Intended as an enlargement of the strlko which re sulted' In women'walters being Impressed tnto service at the Clarldje, McAlpln and Waldorf Astoria some time ago. Fred Strrry, manager of the Plaza, said the Plaza would bo equipped with a new supply of waiters rlthH twenty four hours. He' iaiil women would bo employed permanently. Walton H. Marshall, manager of the Vanderbllt, nnnoilpced that Hi no circumstances will the strikers, who number nearly 300 at the Vanderbllt, be taken back. Both managers said tho demands wero unjust and would not be granted. Mr. Murshall milled that 60 per cent, of the waiters and cooks who struck wore Germans or other aliens and that tlielr names' and addresses had been sent to tho Depart ment of Labor. Otto Wagner, genital secretary and treasurer of the International Federation of Workers In the Hotel and Itestaurant Industries,- said a strike committee had returned from Washington satisfied that tho War Labor Board would begin an Investigation of the strikers' grievances. Union representatives from 100 hotels nnd restaurants reported at a strikers' meeting at the New Amsterdam Opera House that they were ready to support tho strikers. A, fund Is to bo collected among tho union members. Mrs. Kllen A. O'Grady, Deputy Tollce Commissioner, promised a committee of strikers yesterday that she would In vestigate complaints that women were permitted to serve liquor and compelled to work after 10 o'clock at.plght In the hotels where tho strike was first called.

In this country the Mid-European Union is already serving the representa tives of theso "self-determining" peoples as a clearing house for Ideas and a shock absorber against breaches on traditional disputes.! Tho Juco-Slavs Include a great population in tho south of the old Austria-Hungary, and most of the Serbs, Bosnians, Croattans and Montenegrins. It has been proposed to Include them all In one new nation, Jugo-Slavla. Old nntlonal loyalties have mado themselves heard as opposed to the Idea. Whether tho Jugo-Slav population self-determines collectively or piecemeal. It Is one of the biggest of which the peace conference will have to take account. Tho delegates m the Mid-European Union come each from a national coun cil or a similar association, with which they are understood to be In touch as they deliberate. Dr. Hlnkovlc repre sents the Jugo-Slav National Council. Consequently there Is a tendency In this country to regard tho proceedings 1n the union as a sort of reducing mirror of central European developments, and an Indicator of what may be expected when the new boundaries come to be drawn. American and allied statesmen, as well as the central Europeans them selves, have said again and again that the rearrangement of central Europe was certain to be the rock on which the peace conference would either build or split. The officers of the union fully expect a hundred old points of conten tion to be delicate problems, but hope they will all be amicably adjusted. Tho other question asked yesterday at the union headquarters In tho I'laza. and at Dr. Masaryk's rooms In the Vanderbllt, was whether Dr. Masaryk would reply to Padercwskt's personal letter of withdrawal, made public Thursday night nnd ascribing the moe to the Teutonic-Ukrainian invasion of Poland. Letter to PBderevrskl. Just beforo he left for Washington Dr. Masaryk sent a letter by the hand of Elliott S. Norton, business manager of tho union, to Paderewskl's rooms nt the Gotham, which are Polish headquarters. Thero Paderewskl's secretary said his chief was ill and would probably be un able to receive tho man coming with the letter. He denied a report that Pader ewskl had Influenza and said ho was simply tired out and had gone to bed to rest. Tho letter finally was received, how ever, and the secretary authorized Its be ing given to the public. It turned out to brt merely an intimation that the real reply was coming liter. It follows; MrvDrAU Mr- Pauerewsk! ; I be; to acknowledge the receipt of your letter. I wished to answer It at once, or to sec you to-day, but all my time has been so taken up with Important official matters tginj. could not be post poned that I could not give the matter contained In your letter the careful consideration a matter of such im Iiortance requires. It Is therefore with sincere regret that I must postpone my answer until nfter my return to Washington, for whteh I am leaving Oils afternoon. In the meantime I wish to express to you my thanks for your kind expression of personal friendship contained in your letter: you know that the sentiments you there express toward mo voice my friendly feelings and regards toward you. Relieve me, my dear Mr. Pa derenukl, most sincerely yours, T. O. Masartk. Two views ore taken of Paderewskl's withdrawal, one of them being that It Is little more than the temeramental re action of a great musician whose high patriotism haa outrun his diplomacy, CR0WDER CALLS FOR 1,100 JIEN Wants Photographers for Army nnd Ilrliloe W'orUer for .Vary.
