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. Every
nation is alert to the vital bearing of
ships upon their future prosperity. But
the chief interest centers on whether
America can henceforth maintain her
new place upon the seas or whether
she must now disband the energies
that brought her merchant fleet into
b^ing. There is every reason for Be
lieving: that America has come back
upon the ocean—to stay. My observa
tion§ compel optimism."

THE NEW ROAD
By W. M. 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.
CHAIRMAN OF THE INDUSTRIAL
BOARD BELIEVES PRICES WILL
RECEDE IN NEAR FUTURE.
Makes Statement of Interest to the
Ultimate Consumer After a Con

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
With wheat prices reasonable, Mr.
Peek said, reasonable prices of other
products could be expected because
wheat was the barometer of the food
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."

A few days following the murder the
bodies were taken under cover of night
by automobiles into near-by villages,
where they were cut Into small piqces
and.burned separately. The charred
remains were found by officers of the

agreement before the close of the
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.

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
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
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.
