FORECASTS SHIPPING EXPANSION Chairman Hurley Presents Report in • Optimistic Mood. Wasnington. — Edward N. Hurley, chairman of the United States ship ping board, has rendered a report to his colleagues of the hoard' on the re sult of his mission abroad to get in formation on the shipping situation of the world as a result of the war, Mr. Hurley says: "My observation during the three months spent abroad and in the midst of the great events following the signing of the armistice, have afforded convincing proof that the matter of merchant shipping is now one of universal interest.

Wilson Farmer Jones stopped his team to talk with neighbor Brown, Who, seated in his Hmosine, was on his way to town. "1 see," said Jones, 'that you have bought a gasoline coupe And don't you know I've always thought I'd like one too some day.'' "You bet," said Brown, "that isn't all that's lately come to pass, For I have also bought a truck to haul my 'garden sass.' And neither is THAT all," said Brown, "1 find 1 can load Just thrice as much by going to towu on this hard Surfaced road." "One time we farmers thought that it would be a big expense, But' now we've all begun to see its just good common sense, Today we're going to town and back in less than half the time And saving much in wear and tare—That dirt road was a crime " "The money that we yearly spent on trying to make it stay Would in short time have easily built the road we have today, For this new road has brought the'farm much closer to the town And folks can 'go to shows and sich' " continued neighbor Brown. "The children on their way to school instead of wading, skate. They never stop to play around and get to school too late, And after Sunday meeting's out and preacher homeward goes, There is no mud to spatter up his brand new Sunday clothes. "And don't, you know that I don't give a continental darn How much it rains or snows or hails while I am on the farm? For since the hard road's been in I always can rely On good roads in December as well as in July." \ And old Bill Sykes' skinny team which had so much to do A hauling one ton into town, well—now is hauling two, And old Bill says this surely proved to him a bit of luck For with money saved by saving TIME he's going to buy a truck.'" 'I too, said Jones, "am going to buy an auto and a truck For now the roads are smooth and dry—no mud and ruts to buck And any one who says to me that hard roads ain't right, Will surely have an argument if that won't do—a fight." And thus these two old cronies wlio had met upon the Discussed with homely logic the topics of the dav. They argued long on taxes—on farming a-la-mode, But at heart they were a unit for THE HARD-FACED ROAD. way EXPECTS TUMBLE CHAIRMAN OF THE INDUSTRIAL BOARD BELIEVES PRICES WILL RECEDE IN NEAR FUTURE. Makes Statement of Interest to the Ultimate Consumer After a Con ierence With Food Administra tion Officials at New York. Washington.—Cheaper food in the near future was predicted on March 14 by Chairman Peek of the depart ment of commerce industrial board, ns a result of a conference with food administration officials In New York. Mr. Peek said there laid been gen eral misunderstandings of a recent statement by Mr. Hoover that wheat might go to $3.50 a bushel, and he added that the million dollar grain ap propriation was made by congress to enable the public to get wheat pro ducts at seasonable prices, as well as to make good the guarantee to the producer. With wheat prices reasonable, Mr. Peek said, reasonable prices of other products could be expected because wheat was the barometer of the food trade. After explaining the situation re garding the grain appropriation bill, Mr. Peek said: "I believe, therefore, that there is every reason to expect lower food prices In the relatively near future, This view, I believe, the men in charge of the affairs of the food ad ministration will share."

President Wilson Declares That He is Pleased With Progress Made and Hopes for Early Completion of Work of Committee. Paris.—A complete agreement on amendments to the covenant of the league of nations will be reached du^fl ing the present week, was the predic tion made Saturday evening following the conclusion of thfe meeting of the league committee, with President Wil son presiding. Substantial progress is known to have been made and President Wilson, when he departed from the gathering apepared very much pleased over the afternoon's work. A committee was appointed to deal with the suggestions made by the Jap anese delegates. These suggestions were referred to the committee at the request of the British delegates. President Wilson has let the var ious peace delegates know that he is most anxious to sidetrack lesser mat ters now under consideration and de vote the week to the essentials which will make possible a complete treaty agreement before the close of the week. , The peace conferees will be able to devote their entire time to bringing about agreements in the various com mittees as soon as the amendments to the league covenant are agreed upon. The Japanese have eliminated the word "equality" from their proposed amendment to the covenant of the league, it was reported, and now de mand only justice alike for the na tionals of the members of the league. Their original amendment asked for "justice and equality." The elimination, the report had it, was decided upon at a private confer ence of the Japanese delegates. This modification would make the clause virtually unobjectionable to America, it was said, because the con stitution of the United States says the same thing the Nipponese now propose. The British dominions, It is understood, find even the modified clause objec tionable, especially Australia, and It appears the whole matter is one for British solution. The Japanese con tinue to insist that something similar to what they suggest is essential to quiet the anxiety of Japan. Hun Leader Still Raving.

V/ With two 14-inch bottoms, under average plowing conditions, tl e new Moline Universal Tractor, Model D, plows 'J acres in 10 hours, as much as ordinary 3-plow machine. The sli _ ptrior efficiency of die Moline Uni versal is due to its higher speed, Z'/ 2 miles an hour, two bottoms at Z l / 2 miles giving the same, number of plow-miles as three bottoms at V/\ miles.

Patti's Beauty vamsnes. According to a writer in Everybody's Magazine, "Patti lives, not only in eur hearts, but really, in the flesh, at the age of seventy-six, in her magnificent castle of Craig-y-Nos, ten miles north of Swansea, in South Wales, on which she has spent quite half a million She lives there wifti her third husband, Baron Cederstrom, and sometimes, when they feel inclined, they throw their theater, a replica of the open Balreuth theater, to the countryside and give one of the operas in which Patti once thrilled the world. Until recently Patti was even sometimes prevailed upon to appear at Albert hall in London for the benefit of some char ity, but her beauty Is quite gone—It vanished far earlier than her voice— and so for the most part she is hap piest in her Welsh fastnesses among the neighbors, who will always call her the 'Queen of Wales.' " The secret of the speed and power of the Mol.r.e Universal lies in its perfected ovc rhead-valve engine and two-v.hcel construction. The engine develops 1S horsepower at the Celt, and 9 at the drawbar, every ounce of which is available for pull. There are no dead wheels to drag along that only carry weight and steer. For plowing in extremely soft ground, tlie Moline Universal is equipped with a differential lock that enables the two drive wheels to be * locked together, doubling their pull ing power. When plowing the land wheel is raised so that the tractor is level. The wheel is very easily and quickly raised or lowered. The light weight of the Moline Universal, 33SO pounds, and its high clearance, 20'/ 2 inches, make it adapt ed for all other field work, besides plowing. With it one man can plant 40 acres a day, c; V vatc 20 acres a day, Hryect 25 a;.r- s a day, or do any otiirr work wth equal speed. It is the ideal tractor for any sized farm, practically eliminating horses and solving the farm help problem. Call and Irl us show your this re markable machine.
