Word From White House That
Extravagance Is Banned
Causes Sadness.
President's Program for Na
tional Defense Threatened by
Dissatisfied Congressmen.
Legislators who lmve always re
sponded nimbly to tho cry "rally
'round the porlc burrcl, boys." arc a
disconsolate lot today. Tho air about
tho Capitol la nlled with gloom Kcrms
and frrouchoa aro prevalent on the
floor. , ,
Word has coma from the Whlto
Houae that there Is to be no distribu
tion of "pork" at this sesslbn.
The attitude of the Administration
lias "brought about a situation which
threaten!! a bit? royolt in Congress,
und the prospect is that the Presi
dent will find himself faced with a
condition wherein the pieparedness
program will be ondanpureil by Insist
ence of members that If thcro is to
bft no "pork" thero will be no large
surtiB voted for army and navy ex
pansion. Wilson Gives His Views.
Congressman Claudo Kitchln, tho
majority leader, talked with the Pres
ident yesterday about the legislative
situation. During that talk Mr.
Kitchln received a dlBtlnrt impres
nlon that all ''pork barrels' i oiled up
to the White Houso door would bo
shunted Into the cellar and there
Consequently, in faithfully rcportinK
the President's Views on such matters
ns a tariff commission, an anti-dumping
clause, early adjournment, and
revenue legislation. Mr. Kitchln was
obliged to Impart the information that
tho President hadn't inqluded in his
program the so-called "pork barrel"
In fact, the majority leader brought
back to the Capitol tho hint that yie
President would not stand for ajv om
nibus public buildings bill, under any
circumstances, and that the river and
harbor bill muBt bo confined to tne
maintenance of existing projects. Both
tb Public Buildings and Rivers and
Harbors Committees were at work on
good-sized bills.

The House passed, only yesterday, tho
Shackelford bill appropriating; J25,000,t)0u

Fedpral expenditures, when ho has
turned down such old legislative stand
bys as public buildings and rivers and
Indications are that the good roads
bill, sent over to tho Senate today, will
never pass that body, despite all the
fervid oratory uttered In Its behalf in
the lower chamber and the alleged
pressing need fdr Kedcral contributions
to roads in the rural communities.
In fact, there is very little "pork"
for distribution at the Capitol these
days, and It's election year, too. An
empty-handed group of legislators will
go home for the primaries during tne

Three Cigarette Faults
to Avoid
First, avoid cigarettes that
don't just suit your own taste.
Second, avoid those that
bother your throat or tongue.
Third, avoid those that
make you "feel mean" after
smoking all you want.
If Fatimas, for instance,
seem to you to be guilty on
anyone of those three counts,
we say, avoid Fatimas.
A Sensible Cigarette
Storm of Protest from U.S. and
Sweden Cools Ardor, Papers
LONDON, Jan. 2fi. The British gov
ernment hns virtually decided to "stand
pat" on its present trado regulations
and will mako no announcement of a
blockade of tho entire German coast
Irf Parliament, this afternoon, the ma
jority of wcll-lnrormed parliamentary
writers agreed today. Only a few
papers cling to tho belief that tho cabt
net will announco a radical chango ot
The not thrown about Germany by
tho existing regulations may bo tight
ened In Bomo respects. But it is tho
central belief of tho London newspapers
that tho cabinet has decided against
any revolutionary chango In policy.
The storm of Drotest raised In the
United States and in Sweden, some of
the papers broadly ninica, nam cooiea
the ardor of advocates of tho blockade.
If It has not had Us effect upon tno
government. The newspapers gave
prominent display to the warlike utter
ances of the Swedish premier In nis
Riksdag speech yesterday, and the
Dnilv TeltKranh and the Dally News
cautioned 'the government acalnat any
action likeiv to invoivo ureal uritain
with neutrals.
NEW YORK. Jan. 2-Th 8tnt re
payment of Food and Markets has re
ceived from Chicago what it believes to
bo authoritative lnfoimatlnn that tho
beef packers. Included In the eo-rallcd
"Beef trust," have bought up W.OOO.W)
pounds of cold storage poultry In an al
leged schemo to corner tho market.
This amount, equivalent to 2,OjO oar
loads. Is In addition to the usual lock
of frozen poultry the packers store
away each year.
It Is said that they have paid as hish
as 23 cents a pound for ronatln.r chick
ens. 28 cents for broilers and 18 cms
for eflra heavies, which are considered
most unusual pi ices. The prices uro
Mild to be 20 per cent higher than pricis
paid last year, and It Is understood that
when the time for profit taking comes
tho packers oj.-rect to clear from a 1-3
to 0 por cent.
The oxppeted Ecnop. It Is said. In one
of the bisKcst IhingH ln its line eer
If the scheme, ns outlined In tho td
lccs from Chicapo, Is carried out to
its natural conclusion nnd It Ih paid
to npply largely to roasting rhlrknns
the price of a rrartlng chlrketi a
pound next sunimir may be In the
nclghbrrhood of 40 cuits. Tills wjll not
be cheerful news for the lUnman vlio
cots up the Sunday dinner; but It vill
be Joyful tidings for tin- nmatciir -iik
en ialeer..who ulll be in n fair nv to
make, aomo money lr the packers coi
ner the market and scnrtfyP'Prlcoa.
We mean what we say
for, when it comes to the taste,
Fatimas can't possibly please
everybody no cigarette can
do that; But Fatimas do please
more men than any other ciga
rette costing over 5c
That's one reason why you
should try them.
Another reason is because
they are so SENSIBLE so
free from any "after-feeling."
