No single important industry in the United States ever made such a showing In a single year as did the ell Industry under spur or war neces sity, according to Director Manning. Bureau of Mines. In 191B before America entered the war. gasoline production was a little short of 58.000.000 barrels, he reported. In 1017 when this nation entered the war, gasoline production Jumped to nearly 68.000.000 barrels. It was thought that this must be the peak of patriotic effort But In 1918, when the demand from the front for oil became even greater, gasoline production mounted to 85. 000.000 barrels. How this nation sent an ever in creasing flow .of gasoline to the al lies and friendly countries Is shown by export figures. For 191C gasoline exports were S.473,102 barrels; 1917 exports. 9,901,877. and 1918 exports, 13,312.50S. WEST POINTEtt DISMISSED.

March !i. An investigation or the industrial situation in the occu pied area by the intelligence depart ment of the third army shows that surprisingly little "industrial dislo cation" has resulted from the influx demobilization of the German armies in this region. Despite the inpouring of thousands of demobilized soldiers the number of unemployed In February was only 2.535 in the whole area of over 5,000 square miles, with a population of over half a million. At that time about S8 per cent of the soldiers from the Rhineland had been demobilized and returned to their homes. Al though the exact figures upon the number of returned soldiers are un available, they will run into tens of thousands. The employment problem is handled by bureaus In each town or village which puts the returned Boldier In touch with openings for employment. Employers in need of labor report to these bureaus, where the offers are submitted to applicants. In this way thousands were put back to work with the loss of little time. During forced unemployment, the state pas every unemployed man a sum ranging from four marks to eight marks per day. according to the size of his family. German authori ties complain that this "unemploy ment pay" is too high and offers lit tle Incentive to seek labor, because the common wage for day labor is from five to eight marks per day. The new high unemployment pay ment is one oi me iruiia ui iur revo lution, but the rule Is being strictly enforced in the Rhineland, in spite of the complaints of employers. Many places for returned soldiers were provided by the immediate dis charge of women workers whenever they had taken the jobs of men. Al though the pay for women was mucn lower, even where th'ey were doing the same work as men. the employers wore forced by the pressure of public sentiment and in some towns By mu nicipal orders to discharge the women. Owing to the agricultural nature of the area, the employment problem presented less difficulties than in the centralized industrial centers. A large percentage of the demobilized soldiers cent back returned to their farms and vineyards. About three fourths of the total number of un employed are In the four larger towns of Coblenz, Trier. Neuwled and Montabour. WOMAN BUILDS UP $ 1 7 5.000 BUSINESS CHICAGO. March SO. When a girl enters the business world and builds up a business of $170,000 a year, it's about time the men sat up and found out how. Miss Maude Freeman, with the 170.000 a year, business, gives the following fourteen pointers to ambi tious business women: Apply yourself unremittingly. Perfect yourself in some one thing: specialize. Know your own job before you ex pect a better one. Make service the keynote of your career. Be cheerful. Be courteous. The public demands it and is entitled to it Don't make the mistake of never taking a vacation. Make good use of your spare time. Don't waste time on movies grand opera symphony concerts or good plays are much better. Don't be superstitious. 1 got my first position on Friday. Invest your savings carefully. Gov ernment securities are beBt. When you get a raise, plan to save more, not spend more. Set you' peg a notch higher every year Be a suffragist t, TT USE AMERICANISM MOISKINGAME BERLIN. March 25. A few persons 'claiming to be Americans remained tn Berlin during the entire war. When the first Americans arrived after the armistice, mostly newspa per men and prisoner commissioners, these clalraing-to-be-Amerlcans flock ed around. Their stories usually begin with narration of how their hearts beat for America, how they long to return, and end with offers to do anything they can for you, arid finally a re quest to take mall to America or send a telegram. Investigation usually reveals that these suddenly - become - Americans have allowed their naturalization ar rangements to drop, and that they have some ulterior motive in getting connections with America. Some of them have been working for the Ger mans against America. The Anglo-American propagandists continue to publish two anti-American and anti-British papers in Ber lin, which are dirtier and meaner than ever in their efforts. English American dances are held and adver tised in newspapers to indicate that a foreign colony exists. Society Leader Faces Dip on 'Ducking Stool" As a "Common Scold" NEWARK. N. J., March 26.

N. W. Confronted as this country is by an enormous war debt, it cah neverthe less meet and pay off its obligations far in advance of other nations. 'This Is the conclusion arrived at by Con gressman Cordell Hull of Tennessee, member of the House Ways and Means Committee, and widely known as an expert on Income tax and reve nue matters, in a speech printed In the latest Issue of the Congressional Record. Mr. Hull Bald it was a relief to con template this nation's financial and economic situation after dwelling on the dark picture presented by the other belligerent countries. "Our population," Bald Mr Hull. ' 's more than 100,000,000 and our wealth more than $250,000,000,000, while our annual savings must be more than $15,000,000,000. The nation can with out difficulty meet and pay off Its ob ligations far in advance of other na tions. The nation can and should maintain and strengthen its unparal lelrd position of world supremacy In dustrially, financially and commer cially." Mr. Hull said the interest bill on the debts of the nations in the wjir would be over $10,000,000,000 per year. This contrasts with an interest bill o fthe same nations prior to the war or $1,000,000,000. The Coat of War. "The cost of the war in money or its equivalent is now estimated at a little over $200,000,000,000" Mr. Hu.l added 'The cost for the first five months of the war In 1914 was $10, 000.000.000; for the year 1915, $28, 000.000,000; for the year 1916, $88. 000.000,000. for the year 1917. $60. 000,000,000, and for the year 1918. $70,000,000,000." He said he could not even approxi mate the losses of property and ma terials due to the war. The loss or production could never be calculated and the value of property destroyed '"Is so vast and the fact o vague ns to be utterly impossible or computa tion The Total Uebt. Deducting loans to tne allies Mr. Hull put the net total debt of thin country at $18,000,000,000. He said the British government smee the be ginning of the war had borrowed (.13,700,000,000, which addod to Its prewar debt of $3,200,000,000, mads $37,000,000,000 In borrowings, Th aerage Interest rate on the English debt Is 4.0 per cent. It Is estimated that tha government of Knglaud will have to borrow $.i,000.000.000 at a later datn to meet the post of reconstruction and remain lng war Items This would make the gross debt $40,000,000,000. The net Prlllflh debt, Mr. Hull puts at $93, 200.000,000. His doduotlons from the gross dsbt being the value of .sur plus assets, estimated at $3,360, ('00.000, loans to thn dominions of $1,300,000,000, and ona-nalf ths loans to the allies, considered reeeverahle, $3,760,000,000. The Interest burden of the British government, on Its net debt, Mr, Hull puts at 11.472,006,000. He estimates the minimum of fixed Annual peace revenues whleh the United Kingdom must establish as $3,500,000,000, "England has less than half ear wealth and population," said Uf. Hull. "Compared to that ef England, our net war debt would be $66,000, 000,000 and still greater whan enm pared with France. Italy. Canada, and other countries." Inflation nam pant. He said inflation of, almost every kind was rampant in England, and "almost ths entire industrial struc ture has been measurably maintained by bonuses." Mr. Hull said "poor France is trudging along under a load of debt aggregating 23.400,000.OO0, while her wealth prior to the war was estimat ed at $60,000,000,000. When all war expenditures of Italy are met, her debt Is expected to be $10,000,000,000. The national wealth Is not exceeding $20,000,000,000. The Canadian debt is expected to be $2,000,000,000. with na tional wealth or $7,000,000,000. As to Germany, he said she was loaded with a war debt of some $33, 000.000.000 and "overrun with flat j money or its equivalent and every ! kind of the most vicious Inflation ex ists." The Austrian financial condi tion he called "hopeless."
