"Battery" on Wheels Here]
Makes 250 Soldiers
"Present Plates."
A long line of khakl-clad aoldlera
of Uncle Sam's national army, each
carrying a tin cup and folding ;
plate, gave an atmosphere ot war I
to the neighborhood of the Quar
termaster general's office on Seven
teenth street at noon yesterday.
Aa the trumpet sounded the weird
but welcome notes of "Coffee,
coffee, pork and beans," otherwise
the mees call, the fighting men
stepped briskly forward Into the
adjoining reservation where they
were greeted by the savory odor of
a real soldier dinner.
In the immediate background
wa? a queer-looking motor car.
open at the ?ides, several great
kettles end other Utensil? and a
sweep of fragrant stream? This
strange-appearing automobile was
presided over by two stalwart fel
low? in Immaculate apron? and
French chef cap?.
Tank The? Ohjectlv?.
The men In khaki marched reso
lutely towards this ?teaming "tank,"
bringing their cup? and plates to a
aort of "present arms." The "tank"
waa clearly their objective, and they
came away from It with their uten
sils laden with smoking viands.
"What's the grand Idea?" queried
a fat woman engaged In war work.
"Must be feeding the new mili
tary guard of the White Houle," a
thin man resembling an Interroga
tion mark suggested.
"Naw." exclaimed a raw fellow of
the know-lt-all variety, "them's
army officers de-mon-strating a
new-fangled cook house on wheels."
In the meantime a crowd of several
hundred persoti? had l?eeiv attracted
by the unusual eight of the open-air
cafe ?upplylng dinner fur S soldier?.
One of the rifty officers wltueuslng
the proceedings explained that the
quartermaster general of th? army
waa conducting a teat of the Taft
army kitchen, with which It 1? pro
posed to feed the American boya in
France.
"And," said President C. M Brad
ford, of the Factory Product? Export
Corporation of New York. "It I? pro
posed with that fast-moving motor
kitchen to rush hot meals to the boys
in the trenches and on the firing
line, instead of requiring them to eut>
alat on the travel ration of hard bread
and embalmed meat?."

The Quartermaster General's De

Graham, chief of the hardware and

CALL FOR ALL

Search 'for War Workers'
Quarters Brings Up
Profiteering.
Washington hou?eholdei? will be ?p?
I caled to for rooms for j.000 war work
er? today.
Edwin S. Hege, ?ecretary of the
District Council of National Defenae
and in charge of the housing section,
yesterday sent out G,.??? potter? asking
that every householder regiater every
room poaalble.
"We need houeea rooms and apart
ment?," ?aid M Hege "We eapecially
wish rooms where light housekeeping
is allowed."
"We have heard that many land
lord? and owners are now sending
lists of dos and don't? to their ten
ante of long standing.
"These landlords forget that the
Saulsbury law continues their con
tract? in toto. The contract la not
subject to change In any way.
Many landlords also ?r? beginning
to curtail and cut down on service and
comforts formerly furnished.
'They read their contracts aa some
people do their Bible?, merely the
parts that please them. Thia la con
trary to the Saulsbury lew.
'Heat,' hot water and all ?arvlc?
formerly ?upplied rnuit be continued.
It would be Juat as reasonable to re
move the front steps from a house
which you had rented as to cut down
on any part of the thing? contracted
for."
Hew the Profiteer I hlnka.
The attitude of mind of th? rent
profiteer may be aeen from a con
versation heard on th? ?treet yes
terday.
A young and well dressed girl, ap
parently a government employe,
had Just come from an appeal to
a Congressman as to an alleged
Injustice done to her aunt
This aunt, it seems, had rented
an apartment for $s" a month be
fore the wer. She had "good fur
niture" which ?he cherished, so she
had sublet her apartment to war
workers for ?1165 a month.
The owner of the apartment had
heard of It end protested. Finally
because of pressure brought to bear
the rent had been reduced to Hoe
per month. She thought it an out
rage.
When It was pointed out that at
?165, less $47 per month, the rent
for the furniture was ?1.416 per
year or 6 per cent on $22.600. ?he
waa unconvinced. It waa sugge?ted
to her by the business man to whom
she wes telklng that her furniture
was pretty fair if It represented
$5.900. a fourth of that outlay, end
that in ?bout four year? the rent
would buy the article? aerala.
Still the lady w-is unconvinced as
to the taimes? of $100 per month
or less.
ONIONS AND POTATOES
FOR ARMY IN MILLIONS
33,500.000 Pounds Purchased for
September Requirements.
Purchases of potato*?.*? and onions
for the September requirement? of
the army by the subsistance division
of the Quartermaster Corpa total 33,
?jM/Wf pounda. The purchase value
of thrse commodities totals approx
imately 1900,000. These purchases do
not include approximately 3.500.000
pounds of these articles which were
purchased directly by the Depot
Quartermaster at San Francisco for
the Pacific Coast.
Savings, based on the acceptance
of more favorable bids submitted di
rect to the subsistence division as
against bids submitted locally to the
various camps and depots, total 1100.
00ft. This is a saving of 15 per cent
over the prices that would have been
paid without the central rurchas;..,.*;
control system, as put into effect by
j the Quartermaster Corps.
The average price for September
per ion pounds delivered at ail ramps
in the Un I tad States except Pacific
Const points, was JC-70 for potatoes
and $2.r?S for onions. Us compared
with the August price of J3.fl f,?r
potatoes and 1317 for onions. The
reduction in price Is due primarily
to ihe increased supply of both com
modities from l\e Northern produc
ir-, areas and also to the more spir
