Profiteers and Hoarders Release Vast Stores of Food Under Threat of Prison By Associated Press. New York, Aug. 23. Thousands of pounds of food stores in New York city have been released for consumption recently after agents of the United States Attorney's of fice had threatened the owners with jail sentences if they continued to hold the goods, it was learned to day. Earl B. Barnes, assistant Dis trict Attorney, said his office pre ferred to circulate food, rather than to prosecute hoarders and profiteers, but dealers who refused to release food held for higher prices would be vigorously prosecuted. The sale of surplus Army food stuffs at city school buildings, has far exceeded expectations. Experts estimated that 60,000,000 pounds of food will be sold during the course of the sales here. Army bacon has been the article most in demand. About 95 per cent, of the purchasers have been women. Remaining Food to Be on Sale Until All Is Disposed Of Out of four carloads of Govern ment food purchased by Harrisburg only 300 cans of bacon are still on hand. This will not last very long after the rush this evening, it is ex pected. The bacon has been divided into equal quantities and will be on sale at the Hope and Mt. Pleasant fire houses up to 9 o'clock to-night and every day until sold. This bacon is in 12-pound cans and sells for $4.25 per can. . Until the parcel post system has been given a fair trial, the municipal food committee will not consider any further purchases. There is a big demand here to follow the Buffalo plan and buy a shipment of blankets, shoes, underwear, toweling and other merchandise.

Paris, Aug. 2 3.—The Supreme Council of the Peace Conference has not received any message indicating i the resignation of Archduke Joseph, head of the Hungarian government, | but expects to hear within a few i days that he has quit office. I feel certain the Hungarian people again I will be able to bid the Hapsburgs i good-by," said Herbert Hoover, I chairman of the Inter-Allied Relief I Organization, to-day after it became known that the Supreme Council has sent to Budapest a demand for the resignation of Archduke Joseph, head of the Hungarian government.

C Paris, Aug. 23. —The Supreme Council has issued instructions to ; the Inter-Allied Mission at Buda- | pest to inform Archduke Joseph j that he must leave the Hungarian j government in the interest of Euro- | pean peace, as Europe had suite!

Aug. 23 —Dispatches re- j ceived from Vienna newspapers an- ! nounce the withdrawal of Archdube , Joseph from the Hungarian govern- j ment and the formation of a coali- j tion cabinet in which Socialists are j included. I Archduke Joseph surprised the j world when he regained power for I a Hapsburg in Hungary at the time | the Rumanian troops occupied j Budapest.

MOVEMENT ON FOOT TO HAVE CITY SAVE ITS OWN DAYLIGHT Council Will Be Petitioned to Follow Lead of Other Cities in Turning Clock Ahead Next Summer WORKINGMEN AND SPORTSMEN WILL SIGN BIG PETITIONS A movement to have Harrisburg join the cities which are planning to retain daylight saving next summer despite the action of Congress in repealing the popular measure was begun to-day. Dispatches received from New York and Pittsburgh that similar action was being taken in those cities lent considerable encour agement to the proposed campaign. Backers of the movement propose to have an ordinance in troduced in Council next spring which will ask that all clocks be turned forward an hour beginning the last Sunday in April. Sup port of all local businessmen and industries will be sought. Representatives of the West Erid and the Allison Hill baseball leagues to-day said that they expect to line up from 6,000 to 10,000 men and women to support the movement. The two leagues have a nightly average attendance of 5,000 persons. Without daylight saving the sched ules of both leagues necessarily must be shortened to the longeit days of late June and early July. Support From All Classes It is proposed to line up the thou sands of men who for two years have been enjoying golf, fishing, an tomobiling and backyard gardening to petition the businessmen of the city to support the movement. Because the coming election may change the complexion of the coun cil which will sit next year the ac tive campaign may be held up to some extent until after election day. It is proposed, however, to Inter, view candidates for municipal offices and see how they line up on what for two years has proved the most popular act in recent years.
