Washington, March 8. Charges were made Jn the senate today by Senators Borah and Reed, that the food administration had begun a policy of fixing maximum prices for farm products. They and other sena tors t declared authority of the food law 'was being exceeded. Thef attack followed introduction of , a resolution by Senator S'aulsbury which was passed calling upon the food administration to say by what authority it asked bids, on tomatoes for the army and navy at fixed prices. Mr. Hoover personally disclaimed any effort to fix prices. Senator Wal cott, of 'Delaware, said, but seconded the effort, although the food admin istration merely submitted prices, agreed upon by army and navy sup ply purchasing bureaus was actual price-fixing. "They have no authority to fix prices, but they fixed it for sugar," said Senator Lodge. "They said it was a voluntary agreement of the. re finers, but they managed to fix It. "The food administrator has per verted his power, under the licensing section, so that farmers in my state cannot even sell a hen," said Sena tor Saulsbury. Senator Reed attacked the food ad ministration, declaring "blunders and mistakes are now being made by men who are utterly ignorant of the laws nf fr.Hn ..mnofiA anil nrniliiif inn" and that every day they continue to, 11 KILLED, 46 IN HDN RAID London, March 8. Seven op eight German airplanes made a raid over , England last night. One of them reached London and dropped bombs in the northwest and southwest districts of the city. Another raider dropped bombs in the northern district of London, demolish ing several houses. The following of ficii a I announcement was made: ''Last night's air raid appears to have been carried out by seven or eight -enemy airships, of which two reached London. The first two raid ers approached the Isle of Thanet at about 10:65 p.m., and proceeded up the Thames estuary. Both were turned back before reaching London. Across Essex Coast. "Meanwhile the third raider came across the Ehscx coast at 11:20 p.m., ;uid steered west. At 11:45 p.nt. it was reported over East London. A few minutes later It dropped bombs on the southwestern and northwestern dis tricts. At 11:50 p.m. the fourth raider, which had also come in across Essex, dropped bombs to the north of London and . then proceeded south acroKs the capital, dropping its re maining bombs on the 'northern dis trict between 12:20 and 12:30 a.m. The remaining enemy machines, all of which came across the Essex coast. were turned back before they reached London. "A certain amount of damage was caused to residential property In Lon don. Several houses have been de molished." The official report reads: "Tlib latest police reports state that eleven were killed and forty-six In jured in last' night's nirplane raid. It is feared that In addition to the above six bodies are still burled In the wreck age of houses. All the casualties oc curred in London." Several persons were killed by the destruction of private houses in north eastern London. The house of a vicar was partially wrecked, but the clergy man escaped. He is a special consta ble and had left home for duty when tho warning came a few minutes be fore the explosion which damaged his resilience. The vicar worked through out the night assisting tho wounded and homeless neighbors. Report at Midnight. London. March 8, 12:25 a.m. Ger man airplanes crossed the east coast KILLED HIMSELF IN PRESENCE OF WIFE Retired Grocer Couldn't Stand Charge of Bootlegging Liquor. (Spfdul to The News.) Kashvllle. March 8. While Judge .Madison Wells awaited his appear ance in police court to answer charges of violating the liquor laws, John K. Davis, a retired grocer, committed suicide at his home here this morning by shooting himself in the right temple with a 3L'-calibre Smith . Wesson The shooting was done In tho pres- ; nice of Mrs. Davis, w hom be told of hil rssh intentions. Approaching her with the loaded pistol in hla hand he told hrr that he was roing to end his life. As she rushed toward him to prevent the act he turned the barrel to his head and fired, the bullet pene trating his skull and causing instan taneous death. Davis wss arrested Wednesday af ternoon following Ihe discovery cf linuor In his house by two policemen. in the statement of a young man who r hiimed to have purchased liquor from Divis he was arr-sted on a charge of tippling. Another charge of vlolutinir tho storage law was also r!r'l ifg:ilnt him. The taf was continu"! from Tburrdnv morning, when Davis i .irpeared to answrr t he charge, nr'il j h! morning, and forfeiture of M l...nd was taken ! the court when he r.i 'e.i to nwrr.

Declaring he wanted to point out some of the "absurd or, to use the kindlier term, disappointing results,' of the food administration, the Mis souri senator said the price of wheat has been beaten down to the farmer, because his market has been taken away from him. "Despite the fact that Mr. Hoover tells us that wheat is necessary to win the war and that it may he necessary to ration the nation In order to obtain sufficient grain for our allies, thiswise administration," said Senator Reed, is taking a course calculated to re strict the production of wheat, and there isn't a man outside of the food administration who doesn't know it. "I believe that the efficiency of the United States has been' reduced 20 per cent, below what it ought to be at this time, by an ignorant Interference with biistnpas methods. "Ve would not have so many meat less days if there hadn't been so many brainless days," continued Senator Reed. "And we wouldn't have had meatless days If we had allowed the farmers to have their own way. I want to warn the senate and this conn try, and I want to appeal to the presi dent and his cabinet, to stop the cre ating of these conditions that tend to discourage agriculturists and put em- bargoes on production." INJURED ON ENGLAND of England at 11 o'clock Thursday night and proceeded toward London. An official statement lays the raid Is still in progress. Houses Demolished. The greatest damage In London was- inflicted in tho northwestern section where four bombs demolished several houses. A single raider appeared over this area. Hundreds of persons were Just preparing to desert their homes, most of which are three-story build ings, for the more substantial shelter of the two nearby subways when the bombs began to fall. The, first bomb made a square hit on a three-story dwelling oi concrete and brick, crashing through two floors before it exploded. While the police, special constables and volunteer res cuers were busy there, three more bombs fell nearby in quick succession. Ambulances arrived speedily and not withstanding the confusion the res cuers worked effectively under the anti-aircraft barrage. For twenty minutes after th-j bombing of this dis trict the barrage was continued. Northern Light of Aid. There was a remarkable display of the northern lights last night and it is believed by many thnt thli, fur nished conditions under which the air raiders could work more effectively than under a clear, star-lit sky. Watchers on the Kent coast said that just before they heard the raiders approaching the whole northern sky became illuminated, In bands of red and white light, which shone over the sea with far more powerful effect than the full moon. Then as if to accentu ate tho brightness by contrast the skies to the southward towards France and the English channel seemed to grow pitch dark. Another feature of the raid was the strong breeze which most persons believed hindered the operations of the hostile airships. Those who watched from high points the spectacle of tho searchlight: and the gun flashes won dered how the enemy could face tho wind and cold. Chimneys Collapsed. A bomb which fell in a northern suburb destroyed two houses and damaged the windows of every resi dence in the street. Doors were wrenched from the hinges and chim neys collapsed. Not far away a dance was in prog ress. It was not interrupted, mtnougn the roar of the suns almost drowned out tho music. VOTE FAVORABLY ON ALIEN DRAFT Washington, March 8.
