No movement in South lie ml has

Popularly known elsewhere as
the War Chest, people in all walks
of life have given liberally to this
wie fund that takes car of all war
i lief funds for the entire year. In
Eolith Henri the heneiieiaries of the
Federation for fcjocjial Service will
also he included combining the civic
with the war reliefs.
Tho idea is to have but on solici

with duplication of efforts and con
tributions and permitting every' in
dividual, regardless of his or her
position, or income, to do their
.-hare toward &u ppurtingr this -great

TO WAR ZONE
On Eve of Her Ships Being
Taken Over by U. S. and
Great Britain,. Dutch
Change Attitude.
As.-;.it'd Pres. Servbe:
WASHINGTON. March Hol
land on the eve of her shipping
being taken oer by the United
States and Great Rritain has given
evidenees of a readine.-s to make a
voluntary agreement to the purpose,
even agreeing that tho ships shall
he sent through the war zone.
In view of the continued pressure
upon the Netherlands by Germanv
in opposition to such a step, offi
cial. here were m stilled at the
sudden change in the situation and
began to speculate upon what ar
rangements Holland might have
made with Rerlin.
It was stated in official quarter;;
that Holland probably would mak
liberal concessions to Germany
when she turns the ships over to
the allies, but it was feared that
the sudden acquiescence with the
long opposed provision that the
.ships be sent through the war zuie.
might indicate that the Netherlands
government was proposing some
thing new in connection with the
negotiations vhieh Great Britain
and the United States would be un
able to accept.
Ilea (I y to Take Ships.
The official attitude here is that
all arrangements have been ma do
to take over the ships on Monday
and that the injection of any new
proposal by Holland cannot stay
the decisions reached in London and
Washington.
It wa.s stated that if Holland de
sire to turn over the ships on the
terms already laid down by volun
tary agreement it would be consid
ered 'ery agreeable, but that they
must r.e taken over Monday, at all
exe.nts. on the final terms present
ed to t.ie ilagtm by the American
and Pritish diplomatic representa
tives. WILSON GETS REPORT

As.ii.ttd Pr's Service-
WASHINGTON. March 1 '.. A re

headed by Snowden Marshall of
Neu York.
Aviation officials will invite a full
investigation of all failures shown
or charges made in tlm document.
So far as known the Porglum re
port bears little relation to the ores
ent status of the aircraft program.
Tlnae have been reports that it re
fers t serious blunders or delay
and it is into that side of th ques

BILL IS RUSHED
BY LOWER HOUSE
Representatives Hope to Pass
Corporation Measure Not
Later Than Tuesday.
As. i;ited I'rcMs Service:
WASHINGTON, .March Dk De
bate on the war finance corporation
bill designed to help finance nec s-
.v.ry industries ' during the war he-
gan in the house today with admin
istration leaders hopeful of its pas
sage hy Tuesday night. With this
end in view- they secured unanimous
consent for its consideration Mon
day in place, of other matters on
the regular calendar.
As reported to the houe the Id 11
differs very materially from that
passed by the senate and unless
radical changes are made in it be
fore the final vote the measure will
have to be sent to conference. The
chief difference between the Iwn
drafts is in the amount of bonds
which may b issied. The t-enate
provided for a rajita! stock of
$ ..e0.00u,0"io and authority to
issue $ t'On. ttoomo in bonds while
the house committee cut the total
to U'.ÖUO. 000,000.
After Chairman Kitchin of North
Carolina, chairman of the wavs and
means committee had explained the
measure at great length Rep. in;
worth of Ohio, republican, in a
long prepared speech supporting the
bill vigorously criticized the ad
ministration for what l:e termed its
insistence that congress enact leg
islation as drawn in the depart
ments. l.ongvvo! (h Al Sn ak-.
Congress was taken to task by the
Ohio representative for what he said
;was a "growing fashion of late" to
r reci.-ter the w ill of the president
j without question. He added that
i while the republicans had done all
j they could to aid the president in I
I prosecuting the war he believed J
j time had tome to detin:tely im-1
j pre s upon the executive and the '
people of the country that we pro
pose to () siiiiietni!1.? ourseues. i
In explaining the bill Chairman;
Kitr-hir. said h believed it was1
agreed that it was necessary to go,
to the rescue f some industries 1
that are una Pie to tir.ance them-I
eehes now and that here was no!
existing gov ernment a-er.cy in a j
position to do this work. He said,
he believed the committee bill pro-j
v ided an efficient agency and that i
it adequately safeguarded the right? (

"After having announced that the

While the food administration was
making plans today to meet the
critical vh-at shortage by a fur
ther reduction in consumption the
senate again teok up and debated
legislation to increase jiroduction

The food administration was
stined t ac tion by reports from
the department of agriculture show
ing that the supply of wheat on
farms and in country elevators is
far less Pari it was a year ago.
The senate considered a bill b
Sen. (lore of Oklahoma, to lix til"

sate producers for the losses they
sustained when th government es
tai dished its CM 7 price at a figure
hover than the then market price.
