j
j Pennies a Factor in Accumu
lation of Fund for Chil
dren's Institution.
i Some one must have had a pocket
! ful of pennies when the solicitor ap
1 proached him on behalf of the drive
| to raise $100,000 for the Children's
I Hospital, for the sum announced as
| secured yesterday, the first day of the
? campaign, was $17,170.37. Those in
. charge of the drive today expressed
| the hope that every citizen, after
I making his contribution in the usual
even dollars, will "frisk himself for
' cdd cents. They surely do mount up.
Friendly Rivalry Manifested.

JAPAN MAY ASK U. S.
Sees Serious Problem in Eastward
March of Bolsheviki in
Siberia.
TOKIO, Friday. November 2R (by
the Associated Fress).?Thtp eastward
| march of bolshevik forces in Siberia
has developed a suddenly serious
problrtn for Japan, which is gravely
occupying official circles and which
probably soon will be discussed with
the American government. The con
vention by which the allies have op
erated in eastern Siberia may be men
aced by the bolsheviki and the in
terests of law and order in China.
Manchuria and the Russian l'aciflc
littoral may necessitate a military
campaign on a large scale. Japan
apparently has no wish to attack the
problem single* handed, and the im
pression prevails she will discuss
every step with the American gov
ernment and may request moral,
financial and even military support.
Although some newspapers continue
to talk about misunderstandings be
tween Japan and America, the impres
sion is steadily growing here that the
! people who are actually conducting
I the affairs of the empire will seek,
j not only to cement the friendship be
I tween the two countries, but to co
; operate with America in the widest
| sense in the solution of all far east
! em problems. For the moment the
I greatest problem is bolshevism. The
first public note sounded for the ne
j cessity of a common defense against
j the bolsheviki was struck by Viscount
lshii, former ambassador to the
(United States, at the America-Japan
[dinner given by the Japan Society on
?November 19. He said:
"All petty and selfish considera
I tions of a racial and economic char
j arter should be merged into the vast
i er consideration of this common de
j fense."
Elaborate preparations have been
j made to welcome Admiral Albert
I Gleaves. commander of the United
; States Asiatic fleet, who will arrive
j here on board the warship South Da
kota, December 4. Numerous official
dinners and receptions have be&n
planned.
End of Oil in One Mexican Field.
LAREDO, Tex.. December 2.?A dis
patch from Tampico received here
states seven of the principal oil wells
of Chinampa have ceased flowing, or
that only salt water flows from them,
which leads to belief that mineral oil
in that region is exhausted. Two of
the largest oil wells ever brought in
were struck in this region, but they
?er? short-lived.
