ANARCHY'S DOORSTEP Indications Point to Allies Occupying the Whole of Hunland. Amsterdam. Dec. 3.?Berlin through out today was in a high state of ex citement over two developments: 1. The German preee says there is no hope of the armistice being pro longed. 2. Marshal Foch. according to Vor-, waerts, sent an ultimatum to Ger-i many, which expired at 10 a. ra. yes- | terday. demanding the delivery on the best and strongest locomotives among the 5.C00 demanded by the al- I lies. -- Dr. Mathlas Erxberger. head of the | German Armistice Commission, pro tested ^o Foch that fulfilment Of this j demand was impossible. He made a | plea for a respite. | From the situation as it stood late today Vorwaerts draws the conclusion | that the allies will occupy the whole . of Germany. ??Foch." says the Socialist paper,, which is the organ of the Ebert gov ernment. "intends to fulfill his work j by entering Berlin. But the realiza- ] tion of the plan to occupy the whole of Germany is no light task." BrftUh Fleet at Llbaa. A fleet of British destroyers has arrived at l^ibau. according to Ger- j man dispatches this afternoon, which added that a British fleet was ex- j pec ted at Wilhelmshaven today. The crushing weyrht of her defeat is dawning on all Germany and the conditions irt the Fatherland are con sequently assuming a panicky aspect. At Berlin the spartacus group is agi tating the general arming of the "pro letariat." which, if carried out. would mean the breaking loose of the Red terror. The foreign diplomatic corps in the Prussian capital has asked the Ebert Government for protection, fearing the inception of anarchy. For the first time since the revolu ion started political and social con ditions in Bavaria are critica and Kurt Eisner, the Premier and hith erto the "strong man'* seems t? be oeinsf ground. Runs on the banks.ond the Post Office in Munich are re ported. Rioters stormed the Depart ment of the Interior shouting "Down with Eisner.'" Drlf'^w* T?w*r?l ?i v-Vvirlsm. In Bremen the soldiers are being dis armed and their weapons are given to the workmen. This is a further step toward terrorist rule in tho former "fre?? city.** now a soviet republic. The Ebert government has allowed the Hohenxollern princes to leave Ger many. provided they do not take their private fortunes with them. Of these the government intend* to dispose later. The princes are reported to have accepted the ofTer. most ?Jf them going to Switzerland. Prince August Wilhelm and his wife have decided to go to Argentina. The Frankfurter Zcitufig says the archbishop of Munich has caused Pope Benedict to request President Wilson/ and the allies to relax the rigor of the blockade, in order to permit the revictualing of Germany. The Vatican also appealed to the heads of the Cath ode Church in the allifed countries to ose their influence toward that end. the Frankfort paper says. RETRENCHMENT POLICY BEGUN Secretary Baker Reports $2,600,000 Saved by Cancellation. A saving of $2,600,000 by the can collation and modification of war contracts has been effected since the signing of the armistice. Secretary of War Baker told the House Ap propriations Committee, it was an nounced yesterday. ??This is a variable figure," ex plained the Secretary. "changing and increasing all the time." In reply to a question as to the recent decision of the Controller of the Treasury, who declined to ap prove of a standard form of .cancel lation. the Secretary said yesterday: M *1 have not had an opportunity to Cstudy the Controller's decision, but I understand from Mr. Crowell. As sistant Secretary of War. that it -is very embarrassing. I have asked Mr. Crowell to prepare the draft of some legislation to present to Con gress to enable us to me?? our ethical obligations." In the standard cancellati4n con tract. it was proposed to allow con tractors holding orders rendered unnecessary of fulfillment by the signing of the armistice a sufficient amount to safeguard them from un just loss. The Controller ruled that the Department was without au thority to allow a sum in excess of the value of raw materials held by * controctor. less the salvage value thereof. Sale of Alien Property In U. S. Draws Protests An avalanche of protests against ??ale by the* government of alien prop erty. now that the war Is over, has struck the Department of Justice. All sorts of claims?from charge tthat the alien property custodian is ?acting in violation of constitutional lights to allegations that the power Lf the law under which he operates Vnds with peace?are being filed yt is likely the peace conference will f?$termlnfe whether German property m allied countries shall be sold to -?sc in part the necessary funds for ndenml(y1ng Belgium, northern France and other invaded countries. The Department of Juatio? is also working on the problem of a "just ?roper-SALioi!" for seised vessels. CLUB TO BUY -| FOOD URGED ??? / | Commissioner Gardner, in Address, Outlines Ad vantages of Plan. ... Pointing out the great international need of food conservation, the greats advantage in cost as well as in con servation, which can be had by or dering food commodities through the postal service. Commissioner W. Gwyn Gardiner urged the Columbia Heights Citizens' Association at a meeting last night at the Wilson Nor mal School to form a club for the purpose of buying food products di rect from the farmer. Mr. Gardiner told how he shipped 500 bushels of grain to the United States Grain Corporation last sum mer, thereby making 2% cents per bushel more than any other farmer in that locality in Maryland. besides paying less for inspection, and avoid ing the 5 per cent commission paid by his fellow farmers to the commis sion merchant. "Thousands of dollars were lost to the farmer and to the consumer because the farmers did not know of the offer of the United States Grain Corporation to buy all ship ments of grain at a specified min imum cost," said Mr. Gardiner. The | commissioner strongly advocated; that a similar system of buying be ! adopted here in the District. He suggested that experts be appoint I ed to buy all commodities direct from the farmer, who would sell to the retail merchants at a reasonable profit, of for instance, one per cent, which would be sufficient to pay them the excellent living salaries, I which their work would merit. A resolution along the lines of I Mr. Gardiner's suggestions introduc ed by J. Clinton Hiatt, was adopted by the association as follows: Resolved. That we urge upon the members of the association and the I citizens In this section to conserve food, as requested by Mr. Hoover. Federal Food Administrator and Mr. Clarence R. Wilson, District food administrator in order that the nation may send sufficient food to our allies and to our soldiers who are still in France; and also approve the new organization known as the District Food Council. A resolution was also adopted thanking M. O. Chance. District Post master for re-establishing the post office in Postoffice Hall on Park road I between Hyatt place and Fourteenth | street northwest This postoffice will j reopen on December 12.

LIST BY JAN. 1 1 Baker Promises Senate to Rush Completion; Calls I Delays Unavoidable. The premise that greater speedj will be employed in making public j the casualty lists of American sol- ' ' diers and sailors abroad was given | to the Senate Military Affairs Com-' mittee yesterday by Secretary Baker, i (Jen. March and Assistant Secretary, j Keppel. Kven at the promised rate of pub- \ ilication. however, the last of the] names can not be given out before j ; the first of January. There are 160,- ; j 000 names yet to be announced. Secretary Baker said that, wisely] lor otherwise, speed had been sacri-j I flced to accuracy in order that con- i | fusion might not arise and that j ' mistakes might not be made in an* j ! nouncing the names of those killed! 'or wounded. He said that the 1 tots j | arrived distressingly glow at first, but that in response to repeated urg ings from the War Department, Gen. Pershing began sending the names I with greater dispatch. Denlen Holding I p List*. In reply to a suggestion made by one of the Senators Secretary Baker emphatically denied that any lists had been held back purposely in order to convey the impression that victories were being won without . great losses. He said the choked I condition of the cables had a great J deal to do .with causing the delay and in spite of the fact that more clerks had been added to the force it had been found impossible to work with any greater celerity. Senator New said that parents of! boys in the expeditionary force pro tested bitterly against the long dc- ! l*y in receiving news of the cajJU alties, and said that It took twelve days on the average to get from the 1 War Department any word concern ing individual cases.

Let There Be No Saffron Streak. This is Liberty Loan Day. Its dawning is shadowed by a cloud which, if our courage were | fiot- of the American brand, would presage defeat. The returns on the Fourth Liberty Loan are piore than discouraging. They are , alarming. This is no doubt due t<i the epidemic that is raging through out the country. This epidemic has probably touched in some de- I gree every home in Washington. Naturally its nearness has in trenched fear in the mind af everyone. But it must not be allowed to defeat the liberty loan. American courage must not be of the brand that falters before reverse*. That sort of courage is of a saffron tint. It is Germanic. Teutons i are courageous while their horde steeps in victory. But we have learned many times of the "Kamerad" shrieking German when the I tide of battle goes against him. He cannot face cold steel. The j bands must play for him and only while victory rests temporarily on his banner can he fight unafraid. .. Right now we are facing cold steel. Not in the form of a bay- | onet, but in the subtle destruction of a plague. Are we going to j falter? Are we going to utter the yellow battle cry "Kamerad5" We must remember that even at its utmost, the danger of the I plague docs not measure up with the danger that our armed forces I are facing every day "over there." We like to hear the bands play. We enjoy that thrill which j comes from spontaneous action, individually and as a wh?lc. But now that wc are forced to go forward without speeches, with- | out material reminders, without having our names read aloud from the rostrum, without an audience to our participation, wc must put not one whit less force behind our power to shove the Fourth Lib erty Loan with a momentum that will rock the walls of Potsdam. It should be unnecessary to sell liberty bonds. If there ever was a sure thing, our liberty loans deserve that description. It siirtply means one brand of currency exchanged for another and that other the more valuable. From the date of purchase it begins earning. The value of its security can never diminish. I'.xhortations seem ambiguous, but there is one phase that should be kept constantly before us. ? ' ) The Fourth Liberty Loan is a supreme proposition. Supreme becausc it represents the greatest financial transaction of all time. Supreme because it is the foundation of the greatest of wars in the world's history. Supreme because it is the nourishment which enables our soldiers to make the supreme effort which they are now making on the Western front. Participation in this supreme movement cannot be given to those who are not in turn willing to make their efforts supreme. There is no room for pikers. To be a part of this wonderful effort you must be willing to "go the limit." A purchase of a fifty-doilar bond is only sufficient where that fifty dollars represents every possible cent that you own or that is prospective. Suppose you should not be able to finish your payments. At all times you have an investment on which your principal can be realized. There is no argument. You have but one course. X9U must buy to the utmost and you must take the iiviti^tive. Go today and enter your subscription. You may not see your | name in the paper, but in your own heart you will know that you are | an integral part of the mighty machine which is making the world dccent. If you arc not convinced too per cent, ponder over this! The liberty loan is not going to fail. That money represents an obligation of this government. It would be better if it should come volun tarily. But if the liberty loan is not subscribed the government has the power to take the money from you. And the government will do it. The money has been spent. No matter if we should plant the American flag over the imperial palace in Berlin tomorrow, this money would be just as necessary as if our boys were back of the > old Hindcnburg line. ^ . And just suppose for one brief instant that the German govern ment was floating a loan in our country. What sort of terms and ? interest would you expect then? In another column of our paper today we print a subscription pledge. Cut it out and fill in a figure that represents your utmost and mail it to the Liberty Loan Committee. It is your enlistment in the ranks of the supreme. It will erace the slightest hint of saffron. Buy your Fourth Liberty Loan bonds today. Victor Berger Indicted. Madison, Wis..

How far short of expectations the contract program of the Emergency j Fleet Corporation has fallen and yet how successful it has been in making an American merchant marine Is dis closed in figures prepared by Admiral Bowles and received in Washington yesterday. According to the admiral's figures, j the wooden shipbuilding program has been an almot complete failure. Whereas 444 wood ships were expect- I ed to have been delivered by October ! 31, only 92 had been delivered by that date, representing a failure of 97 per j cent. Failure to get engines and boilers' for these Phips. due to war demands, j is understood to be the chief reason J for failure to deliver more. Delivery of requisitioned ships came j close to the expected mark. Of the: 2S8 required for delivery by October 31. 1 according to the admiral's figures, all j but six have been delivered, a failure i of only 3 per cent. Sterl Ship Deli verie*. The steel-ship program fell short of deliveries by 46 per cent. Of these ships 229 were required for delivery up to October SI, but only 10G had been delivered. The }hree large fabricating yards which had promised 1.030.0W dead weight tons by January l had de livered only flO.firtO tons, representing a failure that accounts largely for the apparent failure in the contract pro gram. according to Admiral Bowles. Great I^akes and Pacific Coast yards were in active operation at the out break of the war. while the Atlantic Coast yards that were operating at that time were busy on navy work, throwing upon the Fleet Corporation the necessity of creating new yards. Admiral Bowles Is said to have ex plained that the large fabricating yards could not be expeefced to fulfil all they anticipated. I>ack of experi ence in shipbuilding in these yards on the part of the m^n in charge is said to be largely responsible. Now that the yards have gotten ' d<*vn to a working basis, organised j and systematized, it will be possible to produce a great number of du plicate ships and do it more cheaoly : than any yards can produce a variety of types. | The closing year will see approxi mately 3,500.000 deadweight tons of ships constructed?a f^at experienced [shipbuilders told Congress last year |could not be approached. j The program for 1919 calls for double that amount of tannage. The trustees of the floet corporation ; held a long meeting In "Washington yesterday. The board i.s understood to be encouraged by the outlook. It is pointed out that nn American mer chant marine is essential as a part 1 of the United States navy and to I carry American commerce. \ K3h S?lf in Shooting Gallery. Nashville, Tenn .

CHEERED BY SOLDIERS Men Break Ranks as Exe cutive Passes; Party Will Sail Today. "Good-by, Mr. President- God bleas you." Several thousand enthusiastic Wash ington tans and one dignified, striped - pray pussy cat crowded the Union Station last night to bid the Presi dent Godspeed on the first lap of his journey to the peace conference?the trip to New York In the Presidential car, the "Ideal." The tiny, gray cat slipped past the guards at the entrance of the Presi dent's private waiting room, ana waited Just inside the door for the Presidential party. When the Presi dent and Mrs. Wilson stepped from tneir machine, pussy was among the dignitaries that escorted them to the train, and it is doubed if any one member of that highly important and serious escort realized the responsi bility of their ofTlce as much as that patriotic feline. C%?erH by Soldier*. As the party passed through the waiting room several hundred khaki slad stalwart figures stood rigidly I tt salute, but as Mr. Wilson went through the ranks smiling and lift- 1 ing his hat the solemn dignity of the men broke and cheer after cheer followed the President to the train. Mrs. L. Mason Gulick, head of the canteen station located in the Presi dent private room, presented Mrs. i Wilson with a huge bouquet of ; white and gold chrysanthemums. 1 tied with gorgeous streamers of red. white and blue. Passing through the waiting room and past the rows of khaki, mingled '; with the blue of the soldiers of France, the Presidential party went into the concourse where the great- j er part of the crowd had collected \ to bid them farewell. Cries of "Say hello to Paris for me." and "Take care of yourself." j were mingled with the "God bless 1 you. Mr. President." and the "Come j back to us safely." of those who real ised the importance of the mission! on which the Chief Executive was i going. There may be a difference of' opinion on Capitol Hill regarding the! Presidential trip, but in the crowd in J Union Station last night there was: only one thought?the President was | going: away, and every individual member of the throng wished him well with all their hearts. Bid* I'olmaa KarvwfIL Maj. Pullman, of the District police | force, commanded the entire force of i captains and lieutenants detailed to I guard the President's departure. The) President and Mrs. Wilson, as they stepped from the Presidential car. paused to thank the major for his, care and to bid him farewell. On the observation platform of the "Ideal" a grinning colored porter waited to take Mrs. Wilson's flowers and the bags of the crowd. A hun dred or so newspaper men, detectives | and a few scattered spectators who I had slipped through the lines watched I the President mount the car steps, i carefully assisted by an attentive] conductor, and lifting his hat to the! crowd vanish through the rear door I of the car. On the "Ideal'? will be j the President a?d Mrs. Wilson. Miss ' Edith Benham, Mrs. Wilson's secre- j tary: Dr. Grayson, and Mr. Close, the! President's stenographer. Other mem- J bers of the party will ride in the sec- , tions in the front reserved for them. I In the party besides tho^e on the "Ideal** are Secretary and Mrs. Lan sing. Henry White, the American Am bassador to Great Britain, and Mrs Davidson; the French Ambassador and Mme. Jusserand. the Italian Ambas sador and the Countess de Cellert. the Belgian Minister and a large party of secretaries tnd aids. Secretary Tum ulty went to New York on the Presi-j dential train, but will return Thurs day. The train left the city at 12;JP. The party are expected to board the George Washington early today, but It j is understood that the exact hour of Its sailing will not be made public as the President does not wish any cere monies. FOOD PRODUCTION IN PENNA. CURTAILED Drain of Men to War Needs Has Hit State Hard.
