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
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,
"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
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

, 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
If the forthcoming Thanksgiving1 Day

public eating houses and In homes, such

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,

With Loot Down Brook-
,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
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

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.

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
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

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
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

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.

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

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

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

as any real outburst of popular emotion

wltii a great display of Interest. "It Is
remarkable," ho said, "how you Ameri

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

Marshall, manager of the Vanderbllt,

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

other aliens and that tlielr names' and
addresses had been sent to tho Depart

Otto Wagner, genital secretary and
treasurer of the International Federation

Free schools to glvo political education

Intelligent consideration of governmental
problems have proved a success In Eng
land, according to an address delivered
yesterday before the leaguo for I'o
Utlcal IMucatlon by the Rev. Charles

HAH. Tho idea was, lie said, to educate
the peoplo along political lines and then
let them think for themselves.
Illshop Goro said the schools were
non-sectarian nnd had no nartv affllla-
ttons, and that most of the students
were persons of mature years who were
required to study for two years If they
once embarked upon the course.
Tho Illshop is shortly to return "to

Quit Mid-European Union,
DISCORD REPORT DENIED
Names Missing From Carnegie
Hall Programmo Causo
That the representatives of tlie Jugo
slavs had followed the lead of radc
rewsltl, representative of the roles, and
had withdrawn from the mld-Euroiean
Union, was rumored yesterday. Tho
Jugo-SIavs' representative did not ap
pear at tho Carnegie Hall mass meeting
Friday night to rrrako the speech for
which he was down on the programmo.
At the union headquarters tho rumor
was flatly denied, with the explanation
that the Jugo-Siav delegate. Dr. Hlnko
Hlnkovlc, had been kept from tho meet
ing by Ilfness. Tho denial was not
made by either of the men who would
necessarily have known of a with
drawal. Dr. Thomas a. Masaryk,
chalrman'of the union, was Inaccessible
He went to Washington during the day.
Dr. Hlnkovlc could not be found.
Neither Mr. I'adorewskl's name nor
that of the Polish national organization
appeared on the Carnegie Hall pro
gramme. The omissions suggested an
eleventh hour revision In the printing
shop. Tho Jugo-SIavs' and Dr. Hln
kovlc's names did appear,
Tho rumor ascribed the alleged with
drawal to xmfilcttng territorial aspira
tions of the Jugo-SIavs and the redeemed
Italians In Istrla. and the Adriatic A
Washington despatch of yesterday
named this among the chief central
European Issues which must be dis
posed of to smooth the way for the
peace conference, and- stated that such
Issues were to be dealt with In advance
at a central European discussion to be
held In Paris.
Mtd-Enropenn Union Flan.
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
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
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,
