LAUDS BRITISH
IN PALESTINE
Dr. Finley Pays Glowing
Tribute to Army in
Holy Land.
Two capacity audiences in the audi
torium of the New Masonic Auditor
ium heard Dr. John H. Finley tell of
the work of the American Red Cross
in Palestine during the great British
advance. when the distinguished
speaker appeared before the members
of the National Geographic Society
>?sterday afternoon and evening. This
lecture inaugurated the society's
thirty-flrst reason \n Washington.
Dr. Finley returned to America a
tow days ago after having been In
Palestine since last June.
The speaker was introduced by Gil
bert Grosvenor. director of the Na- i
tional Geographic Society.
Er. Finley paid glowing tribute to
the manner in which the British have
conducted the Palestine campaign, not
' only from a military standpoint but J
during the occupation. He referred
to Gen. AJlenby. the commander-in- .
chief, as a man whose record both as j
a warrior and as a statesman war
ranted his name being coupled in his- !
tory with that of Joshua.
The lecturer's pictures were of ex- j
traordinary interest, the one show-1
lng the former Kaiser's atatue of him- ?
self in the hospice on the Mount of j
Olives provoked much laughter, for'
it revealed the egotistical despot in,
the robes of a crusader.

SECRET OF SUZANNE
PLEASES AT NATIONAL
Grace Christie Gains Favor as j
Dancer.
Vaudeville or something nearly ap- |
proaching it as a part of the Ten Star |
concert series is a novelty to which
Washington probably never has been !
treated until yesterday afternoon. |
when a combination program was pre- \
sented at the National Theater under !
the direction of T. Arthur' Smith that,
embraced a one-act opera, & dancer j
and a ptanist.
Staid concertgoers, accustomed r ]
they are to the routine of Washing-!
ton's concei t season, gasped at the :
originality and charm of the program :
and by their applause indicated a'
hope that such a divertisement may !
be repeated as a spice to the musical !
series.
Martha Baird successfully presented j
a program of Bortkiewk* Lescheti
izky, Chopin and Debussy, with a ,
sketch by Edward Burlingame Hill
after Stephen X. Crane's poem, "The
Rotfgh Riders."
Then, as a sort of interlude. Grace
Christie. a Noyes dancer. gave I
"Dreams" to music from Wolf-Fer- I
rari's "Jewels of the Madonna" and j
"Belgium" to music by Romanze-Si- j
belius. The first was a rhymic fan-1
tasy woven about a buoyant sphere? j
in this case a rubber balloon for
child's play. The second dance de
picted Belgium's oppr<|sion and free
dom. and this was remarkably well
done.
The last number was Wolf-Ferrari's
one-act opera, "The Secret of Suz
anne." which gained irych favor in
New York. Bernard Ferguson, as
Count Gill; Helen Newitt, as the
Countess Suzanne, and Robert Adams,
as Sante, a servant, won much ap
plause for a very successful presenta
tion.

"CHIEF" GREENE IS KILLED;
ONE OF 3 D. C. CASUALTIES
Well-Known Baseball Player Figures on
Latest List; Lieut. Hilary R. Frazier and
Lieut. Alexander Rodgers Also Dead.
Private Sherman R. Greene, a Sem
inole Indian and the son of Mr. and
Mrs. T. H. Greene. 1453 W direct
northwest, is ?eported killed in a?.tion
on the latest War Department cas
ualty list.
Private Green#4 will, perhaps, be bet
ter known to the Washington public
as "Chief" Greene, captain of the
Catholic University baseball tecu in
1912 and 19i3, i.!?d a member o* the
team during nus entire four years at
the University Uw School. Ho also

Cornell Company and the American
Security ar-1 Tiust Company and met

most of the bluest college teams !n
the country in lh*? course of his
career. "Chief" Greene was offered
a contract by the Philadelphia Na
tionals in December, 1912, and press
comment at that time shows that it
was expected he would accept and
desert amateur taseball to enter the
professional cl.iss.
A ? letter received from their ior.
dated the sarro day as that of his
reported death, October 16. lei Mr.
and Mrs. Greene to hope that there
might be some i.;ihtake in the report,
a hope which la encouraged by the
view taken by the War Depart Mont
officials. A cable has been sent to
France by the Red Cross to investi
gate the case.

What Determines Meat and
Live-Stock Prices?
Some stock men still think that Swift & Company?
and other big packers?can pay as little for live-stock as
they wish.
Some consumers are still led to believe that the packers
can charge as much for dressed meat as they wish.
This is not true. These prices are fixed by a law of
human nature as old as human nature itself?the law of
supply and demand.
When more people want meat than there is meat to be had, the
scramble along the line to get it for them sends prices up. When
there is more meat than there are people who want it, the scramble
all along the line to get rid of it within a few days, while it is still
fresh, sends prices down.
When prices of meat go up, Swift & Company not only can pay the
producer more, but has to pay him more, or sofne other packer will.
Similarly, when prices recede all down the line Swift & Company
cannot continue to pay the producer the same prices as before, and
still remain in the packing business.
All the packer can do is to keep the expense of turning stock into
meat at a minimum, so that the consumer can get as much as
possible for his money, and the producer as much as possible for his
live-stock.
Thanks to its splendid plants, modern methods, branch houses,
car routes, fleet of refrigerator cars, experience and organization,
Swift & Company is able to pay for live cattle 90 per cent of what it
receives for beef and by-products, and to cover expense of production
and distribution, as well as its proLt (a small fraction of a cent per
pound), out of the other 10 per cent.

year ago. He trained at Camp Sher
man, Ohio, for nine months and went
overseas last June. His wife and
8-months-old son are living: in
Brookville, Pa. Jn his Inst letter to
his parents Private Greene said:
"We have been out of the front
line now about two weeks and we are
just about ready to go iti again. Wo
hardly ever go back to the same
front twice, but generally to a new
front. Consequently we have been
hiking some every few days.'.'
Telling of how he was protected by
a steel helmet, Greene said: "I, my
self, was hit in the back of the hel
j met by a machine-gun bullet, but it
j simply glanced off and left a mark
. on the helmet."
j Greene told of crossing the Hinden
i burg line. Explaining that "Jerry" is
the name given the Hun by the
American soldier, Greene said: i
" 'Jerry's' Hindenburg line, which I
wa.s supposed to be tys strongest, j
consisted of a trench system three
miles deep. We went through with
< hardly any trouble and our boy? have
j been going ever since.
Tel In of Heavy Bnrraer.
j Greene told how on his last trip to
! the front on the first night the Amer- ?,
j icons laid down a barrage for 75 min- |
utes, and 240 machine guns were in',
I action at one time, besides the artii- J
lery flre of the British and Austrians.
] On the next afternoon Jerry counter |
; attacked, and the Americans opened j
; up another barrage. "They told us," I
j continued Private Greene in his let-1
j ter, "that Jerry was mowed down1
just like wheat in harvest time."

Mr. McDermott declared that the
organization did not enter individ

that there had been some activity r
in the governorship elections in r
Texas .ind Tennessee. I ?
Maj. Humes asked If the witness '

lid not reply when Maj. Humes in
formed him that he could produce
documentary evidence of the p-iy

The attitude of the brewers toward

tatcd that the open hostility ihown 1

FOOD CONTROL
FOR D.C. URGED
Commissioner Gardiner
Wants Municipal Govern
ment to Purchase Food.
To perpetuate tHe plan of the 1
I'nitcd States Grain Corporation, mil-,'
nicipal control of all food com modi- , f
ties coming into the District, .follow
ing the plan of the corporation in ,
buying wheat, was urgwl at a meet- J
ing of the Citizens' FocaVCouncil last ;
night. 1
Commissioner W. Gwynne Gardiner:
pointed out tlmt the immense profits ?1
which have been going to the com- i 1
mission merchants could be raved to |
the buyers in this manner. He ad-j*
vocated the establishment of a mu- i
nicipal market and warehouse to' J
carry, our mm plan.
In arguing the necessity of such | 4
action. Commissioner Gaidiner re- ; *
lated some of his recent experience! .
as a farmer, in attempts to dispose 1
of his produce. He told of an inci- |'
dent which shows conclusively that j
the commission merchant is selling j
goods to the public at prices graatly |
in excels of those which he is paying
to the farmers. Commissioner Gardl- J ,
|ner, in company with John Beale, J |
Assistant Assessor of the District. :
went to a commission merchant and ,
bought a turkey of him on Friday i ,
night. % i
The merchant stated that the; ,
turkey was in first class condition ; ,
and charged him 28 cents per pound ! <
for it. Mr. Beate took the "gobbler" ]
to his home and "fed him all that j i
he could eat" until Monday morn- j
ing. The turkey was then taken i
back for the purpose of being *old. | I
Various dealers offered to pay 11 '
to 18 cents per pound for it. Com- j j
niissionor Gardiner then went to the j '
merchant from whom he had pur- j i
chased the turkey. The merchant j
said that the turkey w.is not in very :
good condition, an'l was rather thin I
< despite the fact that he had been j
fed as much as h?? could eat from j
the time he had been bought). He ! c
offered the Commissioner 20 cents . i
per pound for it. This was a loss { t
of 8 cents per pound.
Park View Pl? Feasible. j j
Commissioner Gardiner stated that J
while the plan of municipal control ' |
of all food commodities could not be J t
accomplLshc-d without Congressional , I
action, still the plan of the Park VIcw
Citizen*' Association of utilizing the
trucks or the Postoffice Department
would serve the same purpose
In a stirring address. Commissioner
I?uis Brownlow urged the starting
of a conservative propaganda for the
purpose of sending food abroad to aid
the starving people of Europe. He !
pointed out that "famine tends to-i
inarchy," and that as the United
States by timely Intervention had ;
laved the world politically, "It is now '
railed upon to save It socially and
prevent the spread of Bolshevism."
He declared that the people of the j
L'nlted States must adhere to a rigid j
program of conservation in t>rder that?
we may "do our part by the starv- f
ing people In Europe." He stated |
that unless "we do this we
ivoid the consequences and will be
cailfcht In th?* deluge which will I
wreck the world ."
Clarence R. Wilapn addressed theV
meeting on the importance of the
work which the council would b<
railed upon to do after the Food Ad
ministration has been abolished
The council adopted a resolution
^atllng upon all delegates to take j
