"We attach no particular Jmport-

commissions of other countries desir-
8ing to make an impartial investigauon
will be welcome. We will niako no
sper-.Jal preparations and will arrange
no fetes for the league commission,

Oatmeal of Surpassing Quali
I ty Produced from New Pro
duct "Inventor" Declares
OTTAWA; Ont., March 18. Hullless
oats recently was added to beardless
barley as one of the scientifically im-j
priced grain varieties evolved in Can-
ada which promise to make a puima-'
nent impress on the agriculture of thoi
wo'lc'. It is the "invention" or evolved
product of C. E. Saunders, Dominion
certalltt. whose experimental work
on i he government farms near Ottawa,
ranks him with Luther Burbank as a
wizard in tho transformation of plants.
' -'The new hulless oat." said Prof.
iSanriers, "or Liberty Ottnwa ISO oat,
I as I lifve named it, was produced by

J the well-known variety, Swedish Sp

'in remote districts and hulless ots is

'The new variety gives a good yield i
though not quite equal to that 'it thei
most rroductlve varieties which re

great enough, however, to interfere

It has straw of good lengtn and
strength and ripens early.
"I should not recommend it for feed
ing to horses as I fear that, lacking
the hull, it would be too concentrated
a food. But for human consumption,
it is especially desirably. Oatmeal of!
surpassing quality can be made from
it hv merely grinding it at a mill."

government intends to assume control immediately. General von

government, reflect the fear of a radical uprising in Germany. In

come reports of uprisings of workers and advices from Berlin state

on that city. .As the Ebert troops have not as yet resumed full con
trol, an attack by the reds is feared.

over direction of affairs at least temporarily.

1 Hallee, Ohlinga, Unna and Gelsenkirckem according to reports, while
