Mr. Wilson has found that at some

people waltlnc to reach the tables,
just as accurs at circus time. The

In the summer and mild -weather of

and Impairment of digestive func

approach of winter. '

Wilson their co-operation In his plans

patrons to obtain all the food they
really need for $1 per day each. Mr.
Wilson has officially estimated,
fhose with light appetites may eren
sustain themselves on less than that.
Shlle the hearty partakers of good

fcidulge their appetites. This fl per

prices for humanity's rations. They
are subject to increase should the

the vital question of Increasing the
floor space and serving capacities of
this class of restaurants, already
doing a "standing room business" at
luncheon and dinner hours. It is on
this that Mr. Wilson wants helpful
assistance. Studying the situation in
Washington from many angles Mr.
Wilson sees the difficulties of obtain
ing buildings In which there may be
enlargement of facilities either in ad
ditions to existing establishments or
opening of new ones. The stern
necessity of trying to do something Is
arousing him to continuous Investiga
tion and consideration.
Mr. Wilson feels that there is an
Immense field in Washington now, and
for many yearsto come for huge res
taurants and lunch rooms supplying
the public at popular prices. If pri
vate capital does not wish to take
chances he thinks the door is open for
public spirited men and women of
wealth to make ventures. Intent only
upon making the places pay small net
profits, sufficient for interest upon
He does not think It essential that
these establishments should be lo
cated only in the congested centers of
the city. They could be operated In
congested residential centers. If only
to furnish breakfasts and dinners.
Lunch Roornn To Small.
Mr. Wilson believes that enlarge
ment of the facilities of departmental
and bureau lunch rooms so-that Gov
ernment workers may also get light
meals for breakfast and dinner, as
well as luncheon. Is the most promis
ing prospect now. He la In touch
with departmental and bureau heads
as to just what Increase of facilities
may be expected from proprietors of
these places! who merely have con
cessions of floor spaces for their op
erations. Here again, though, comes
In the question of space. Congress
Is already inquiring if It Is not pos
sible to move Government bureaus
away from Washington to relieve the
congestion in office buildings, houses,
and apartments. To give up more
floor space to cafeterias is to restrict
the office needs of the Government.
The new dormitories that are going
up in Washington under the housing
operations will have restaurant
privileges for 5.000 clerks who will
eventually occupy them. That will
afford a small measure of relief. It
will not be possible. It is"Stated, to
do more than accommodate tne oc

charge of each having all they can
think about and do.

.- WAY TO RUSSIA
Russian and Roumanian diplomats
here today foresaw the complete col
lapse of Germany's policy In the
Balkans and In the East.
The signing of the armistice by
Bulgaria on the terms laid down by
the allies was interpreted by officials
at the Russian embassy as the re
sumption of power In Bulgaria by
the Russophile group of Bulgarian
statesmen represented by Premier
Malinoff. This, It was declared,
would prove In the near future a
most powerful stimulant to the ef
forts of the revolutionary democracy
of Russia to restore Russia'a unity
The stimulant, Russian officials
pointed out, would be both military
and political. The virtual exit of
Bulgaria from the war opens the
road for tbe entrance of allied troops
Into Rouraanla and thence to south
ern Russia and the Ukraine, whera
the population fighting the German
Invaders, is eagerly awaiting outside
help for a concerted assault on the

When the history of the war Is
chronicled there will be a bulky
volume devoted to the wqmen of Eng
land, who forgot their dangers and
woes while they "carried on" to help
win the war. and one long chapter of
this will tell a thrilling and romantic
story of workers in airplane fac
tories, according to Miss Christina C
Slots, of Australia, who arrived re
cently at an Atlantic port.
Miss Sloss belongs to one of those
noble families recorded In Captain
Knyvett'e "Over There With the Aus
tralians." Five of her brothers volun
teered Three of these are now fight
ing, one Is dead, and the other a pris
oner of the Turks.
Miss Sloss was a nurse In Now Tork
when she decided to go Into war work
herself. Twice she attempted to cross
the Atlantic. The first steamship she
boarded was turned back and the sec
ond torpedoed. Finally she landed and
took up a course in airplane work.
"After completing my apprentice
ship I went to work in an alrplan
factory, where I remained until com
Ing here for a rest," raid Miss Closs.
"There were 5,000 young women at
nork in tbe factory, and never can I
describe how they are striving They

most. Day and night the factory
runs, for the cry is ever for more air
"There were manv alarms of the ap
proach of air raiders while I was
working in the factory, and we had
been drilled to run for rover upon the
alarm, given generally twenty minutes
before the raids occurred. Shelters
were assigned us and It waa expected
we should cease work.
"But the alarm never made tho.e
English women run for shelter. All it
did was to make them bend lower over
their machines and work with more
speed. The alarm only mado them de
termined to turn nut completed bits of

REQUIRE MORE COAL
The minimum coal tonnage required
to meet the fuel demands from now
until March 31. must average a pro
duction of bituminous of 12.234,000
tons weekly and a weekly anthracite
production or 2.030.000 tons.
Fuel Administrator Garfield said to
day that weekly requirements rep
resent an Increase of 1,731.000 tons of
bituminous and 121.000 tons of an
thracite over the average weekly pro
duction figures for the corresponding
period a year ago.

WITH THE AMERICANS WEST OF
VERDUN, pct. 1. The Germans
are constantly throwing in fresh di
visions In an effort to hold bac.c the
Americans between the Argonne
forest and the Meuse. resulting In In
creasingly violent fighting.
Missouri. Kansas, and Ohio troops,
after four davi continuous fight
ing, withstood the counter-attacks of
the fresh Boche masses wltnout
budging, then resumed their offen
sive, gaining more ground.
Artillery More Active.
The German artillery Is becoming
more active, while our "3s are fir
ing point blank from front line posi
tions, sweeping the muddy Argonne
hills, pioneering for the Infantry.
I saw the beginning of an Intense
battle yesterday afternoon from a
point near Montfaucone (twelve miles
northwest of Verdun), which is now
under a continuous enemy barrage.
Montfaucon is located on the crest
of a moderately sloping hill. The
American artillery nearby continually
bangs away, while overhead the
American shells spasmodically whistle,
mixed with an occasional long- whine
from a Boche projectile. Oil to the
left, from the Artfonne forest, the
steady roar of other American guns
adds to the din.
All our artillery Is concentrating on
one specified small area, packed with
machine gun nests, which Interrupted
the advance of Missouri and Pennsyl
vania troops. The barrage, sweeping
on before the attack, saves the lives
of many doughboys.
Stretcher Bearer. Busy.
Over a ridge to the left four Red
Cross men can be seen carrying a
stretcher. Another wounded man is
following them. They must cross
two kilometers (a mile and a quarter)
of hills before they finally reach the
dressing station for which they are
bound. It Is hidden In a former boche
dugout at the edge of a wood. To
the north another quartet emerges
over the horizon, carrying a wounded
comrade. Suddenly machine gun Ht:
rattles sharply above the confused
roar of tbe heavier guns. They drop
their stretcher and lie flat. It Is one
of our own airplane firing at
some boches a considerable distance
away. But caution Is necessary since
the Red Cross men and wounded have
been fired on several times by snipers
who have not been mopped up.
Impassable roads from the front
make It necessary to carry the
wounded In litters' more than five
kilometers (over three miles). The
litter men have been working with
out rest since daylight. They have
had little food, either They gather
up the wounded, give them first aid
and bring them back tor the dressing
stations. While the wounded are
awaiting their turn there they are
carefully covered with salvage blank
ets and boche overcoats.
Many of the Red Cross men had not
eaten more than one or two meals
during the whole fighting. They wer
tired looking, but bright eyed. Over

back and forth, slgnalinr our artil
