destroyed by the Germans.
The steel and iron production,
which, in 10 IS attained 1.834,000
tons is nil since 1011. Of 35.000
metal workers in 10IS only about
two hundred are working.
It is hoped that by the end of this
year, at least twenty-tlve blast fur
naces will be producing and that 44
per cent of the pre-war production
will be obtained.
Six thousand operatives have re
sumed work in the linen industry.
The English week of 54 hours has •
been agreed to.
In the textile Industry ( carding 1 !
work may be resumed several weeks
hence since a great part of the i
machinery which the Germans had
taken away has been discovered it.<

The selection of a pood material is an essential part o
9 of a building's construction or repair. A rooting is
supposed to protect the interior of a building and Q
0 the material contained in it.
Cheap rooting will crack, or rot and consequently
0 i ' Mr leak may damage the contents of your
building, and the cost to you may be many times °
0 the value of even the highest-priced rooting.
As a responsible distributor, with a reputation to °
o maintain, we recommend
We know frorn knowledge and experience with roof
o ing materials, that Ru-ber-oid is made of the highest
grade felt, and the best saturating compound and the
o best coating compound. It costs a trifle more, but it
lasts—some buildings covered 20 years ago are still °
a in good condition.
Ru-ber-oid will not crack, rot, run rust or warp,
0 and will not leak. Sparks "fall dead" on Ru-ber-oid
because of its fire-resisting qualities. °
0 We can tell you some interesting things about roof- o
ing. Come m and talk over your problem.

■ Goddes, president of the Board of
Trade said in the House of Com
mons, the other day, that American
steel manufacturers were quoting
prices for steel in the Putted King
dom lower than those quoted by
British manufacturers, Neverthe
less. he said, the government was
not prepared to restrict tho importa
tion of iron and steel because of the
demand for it In Great Britain.
Lieutenant-Colonel sir V\ Hall de
clared that the American steel
manufacturers were underselling
British steel in Knglish markets by
ninety shillings a ton and upward.

ernment was going to do anything
to protect British steel manufac
turers from this American com pot U
I Hon. This evoked the reply that the

restrictions at present.
"There is a very great demand

net able to meet tt," said fir Auck
land Goddes. "Cur foreign trade

Declares Reports of
U. S. Activities in
Siberia Are Untrue
July 1. M. Zumoto, a
prominent Japanese journalist, who
has just returned from Siberia, has
declared in a speech here that not
one of the various alarmist reports
concerning American activities in
Siberia was well founded.
On the contrary, he said, the ac
tivities of Americans in Siberia are
all unselilsh and dedicated to the
welfare and advancement of the
people of Russia. He especially
praised the work of the American
Red Cross and the American Young
Men's Christian Association. It was
a striking thing, he said, to notice
that the men who direct the Ameri
can activities were those who had
lived in Japan and were friendly to
the Japanese people.
Mr. Zumoto added that he had
delivered a number of speeches to
the Japanese peopte concerning the
results of his trip In an effort to
eradicate any misunderstanding. He
looked forward to active eo-opern

"Constitution Day,"
Sept. 17, to Be Observed
Now York. July, 1, That Con
stitution Day, September 17, the an
niversary of the Birthday of the
Constitution of the United States,
be made a permanent national day
of patriotic celebration. Is suggested
lt\ an announcement today by the
National Security League.
The Idea of creating a permanent
popular recognition of the Constitu
tion, by a national yearly patriotic
celebration on September 17, is the
result of the inauguration by the Na
tional Security League of a great na
tion-wide simultaneous demon
stration on that day this year as
a popular protest against the in
creasing spread in this country of
un-American influences. So great
has been the Interest and co-opera
tion aroused by this movement of
the Security League and the or
ganisations associated with It, that
It Is now hoped to eventually make
the yearly celebration of Constitu
tion Day approximate the Fourth of
July. While the celebration of the
Declaration of Independence has
continued until the world Is united
upon its principles, the Constitution
which has successfully embodied
these principles for120 years and is
the more concrete thing to dwell
upon, has not been made the theme
for the eulogy It deserved.
