Washington, D. C., March
2.—A, general roundup of
alien disturbers in the Pa
tific northwest spreading
sabotage and anarchy was
ordered today by the depart
ment of labor. All aliens
preaching these doctrines,
Secretary Wilson ruled,
whether they be members of
the I. W. W. or not, shall be
confined for deportation
from the country.
In response to a demand for
some 3,000 I. W. W. in the Pa
the wholesale internment of
cific northwest, Secretary Wilson
ordered that any alien advocat­
ing sabotage or anarchy be de­
ported even though he may have
committed no overt act. He ruled,
however, that mere membership
in the I. W. W. would not\ be
ground for deportation.

the St. Paul Federal Land bank de­
clared today.
"The legislature by this act, un­

The farmers are greatly alarmed
as.they face the possibility of being
unable to obtain financial support
from the land bank because of the
operation of the seed bond law, Mr.
Quamme said.
He admitted the St. Paul bank is
not making any new loans in North

an extra session of the legislature

Attorney E. H. Nicholas, Jackson coun.

Truth About Food

Washington, D. C., March 2.—In a
memorandum prepared for Secretar5
of War Baker, Major General Goethals
today denies a complaint of Major O.
Mosher of Walnut, la., that the bread
fed to soldiers lack nutrition.
"It is not true that soldiers are be­
ing forced to use a bread: from a
flour that the government declared to
be "bled white," by the millers, as
stated by Mr. Mosher," General Goeth­
als says. "The greatest care is taken
by the quartermasters department to
see that the bread fed to the soldiers
is nutritious, wholesome and tasty in
every respect."
The bread. General Goethals says,
is being made in the various camps,
in which from ten to twenty percent
of corn meals, rye, barley, rolled oats
and rice are used for substitutes, de­
pending on the locality and facilities
with which the supply can be furnish­
ed.

DUAL MONARCHY
EXPLAINING ITS
UKRAINE MOVE
Dictated by Political Necessity
and Not an Act of War,
Von Seydler Says
JUST A NEIGHBORLY ACT
Amsterdam, March 2.—The decision
of the AustroHimgarian government
to send troops into the Ukraine was
explained yesterday in the upper
house of the Austrian parliament by
Premier Von Seydler as having been
taken in response to a urgent request
for assistance from the Ukrainian
government. The request was made,
he said, in consequence of events in
Uukralne which threaten to interfere
with the transportation of food stoofs.
"In the circumstances," he contin­
ued^ /'we' could not refuse our help."
The'nebeBsity has arisen for participa­
tion by the monarchy in an action
which Has not the least connection
with any act of war and which pos
sesses no pblitical character whatever.
It constitutes solely an act of legal ad­
ministrative assistance rendered at
the request of another state in the
interest of the state. Naturally, this
assistance cannot be given except by
the employment of limited military
forces.''
