In the Texas case, it is said by the department of justice, an organiza tion was formed some time ago osten sibly for the purpose of co-operative buying. Its members were required to take a secret oath and soon after the enactment of the army law, strong German influence" succeeded in turning its efforts to combat regis tration. High powered rifles were used to intimidate some persons. Deal With Offenders. In some western cities there were evidences of an attempt to defeat the registration, but the department of justice, it was officially announced, is fully prepared to deal with the of fenders under, existing laws. Scat tered over the /country are sporadic efforts to. interfere .w(tli registration, but officials do notfoeliewe they are connected with German influence T£e Texas case, in which the Ger man influence is established, and the arrest of two mountaineers in south west Virginia are the most conspic uous.

Since his acquittal "It cannot be done," was the reply: we cannot deflect a most patriotic and beautiful gift from the women of Canada to their loved ones into a different channel." "But I've got to have that flour,' was Mr. Hoover's parting comment He went to the next man in author ity and got the same answer. Al1 through the red tape of army and civilian service went this man who had sworn to feed Belgium's starving mouths, until at last he reached As quith, then premier of Great Britain The premier was delighted to see the man who was doing so much ftv Belgium. What could he do for him? yYou can give me that shipload flour sent over for the Canadiar troops," answered Hoover bluntly. "Impossible.
