W.S.S. PASCAftOULA, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, NOV. 2, 1918 NUMBER 9. THOUSAND PLANES A WEEK TURNED OUT FOR ARMY. America Now Has More Battle Planes Than Any Single Belligerent Equip ped With Liberty Motors. Washington, Oct. 30. Production of American aircraft now has reached a stage where it is being limited prac tically only by facilities for transport ing the planes to France. The pro duction of Liberty motors during the month of October reached a stage of one thousand a week, a goal which had not been hoped for before December. The latest official compilations show that since June 1 approximately 2,500 gluing planes of all descriptions have been shipped to the American forces In France. When it is realized that none of the belligerents at any one time since the beginning of the war has had more than 3,500 airplanes actually in service, the significance of an American production ot z.ovv planes in five months becomes ap parent. These 2,500 planes included nearly one hundred and fifty heavy bombers. and the remainder were planes of al! classes, including observation ma chines and day bombers. Reports from all the production cen ters show the results rapidly growing. The American forces have been mov ing so rapidly during the last few weeks that it has been found neces sary to give up some ot the trans portation space which was intended for airplanes to other material, but within the next few weeks the full movement of aircraft is expected to be in swing again. As a matter of fact, tonight's reports showed that there were more Amer ican airplanes awaiting shipment at points of embarkation than could be loaded. In speaking of fighting airplanes, the single seated plane in which are fought the spectacular duels of the air is not included. These types are changing so rapidly that officials say it never will be practical to build them elsewhere than alonist upon the battle field. All the American built planes, however, are fighting planes, armed and equipped to care for themselves on the duty for which they are design ed. W.S.S. FOOD CONTROL MAY GO ON AFTER WAR. RESTRICTIONS NOT TOBE RAISED "Flu" Situation Still Improves Sut Not Sufficient to Allow Modifi cation of Quarantine. SHIPYARD MEN GIVEN NEW RAISE. Further Increases If Cost of Living Continues Up 400,000 Men Affected. Washington, Oct. 27.

Two great On account of the continued report districts are created, one for the Pa- HAS KAISER LOSTJONTROL? Now Appears That German People May Be Forcing Hand of Govern ment in Peace Move. Belived Situation Will Continue settled for Several Months. Un- When peace is declared between th entente allies and the quadruple al iance it is probable that the officials of the food administration will not be disbanded until months afterwards. The nation will face the problem of supply and demand of food as great for a few months after the war as the country faces at present, according to government officials, and a plan has begun to,, keep track of all foodstuffs from their sources, to the Ultimate consumer and prevent any waste. Letters sent out from Washington emphasize the importance of urging the city and state officials who inspect food to trace all instances of spoilage to their sources with a view of avoid ing such losses in the future. This may go beyond the jurisdiction of the local food officials anil the administra tors will be called on to aid them. Where food has been condemned much material of value may be recov ered, food officials say. In some in stances a large part of the condemn ed material is destroyed in city in cinerators, causing not only a loss in material and food, but also in fuel. The fuel administration lias joined in the request that the use of coal, gas or oil for such purposes be avoided as far as possible. The United States food adminis tration at Washington lias set up a garbage utilization bureau which is insisting that cities operate a serv ice which will eliminate food waste and Whloh will put to use to the fullest extent possible all garbage "material. The United States bureau of chem istry, octing in co-operation with the food administration, has pointed out that the waste of foods which could he used in by-products amounts to an enormous total. Officials state that the idea of the utilization of the waste products will be worked out as a war measure. W.S.S.

W.S.S. DEATH CLAIMS MRS. WALKER. Mrs. Ruth Denmark Walker, wife of Mr. Howard Walker, of this city, died a) their home on North Pascagoula street at 3 o'clock Tuesday morning after a brief illness of double pneu monia, following an attack of Spanish influenza. The funeral services were private and were he'd from the family residence on North Pascagoula street its shattered morale, has now gotten beyond the control of the military party, and that the German people arc the force which is driving the German government makes for ending the war. Another note from the German government explanatory of the changes that have been made or are projected in the. German constitution and form of government was received today through the Swiss legation, but the state department did not make it pub lic. This note was understood to be supplementary to the preceeding Ger man communication saying to the president that he must have knowledge of the efforts that have been made to democratize Germany. President Wilson was at work today on his reply to Austria's renewed plea for an armistice and peace and it was expected that it would be dispatched before night, but later today it was said at the state department that there would lie no announcement regarding the reply tonight. It was understood that in the note the president intended to touch upon the steps hat Austria and Hungary have taken in the direction of releas ing subject peoples from political bond age, but that the Austrian govern ment's plea would be referred to the allied governments. The administra tion was said to be well convinced now that Austria already is nearly out of the war and that her will for peace is simply tempered by a natural dis position to get the best terms possible short of unconditional surrender. The report that Count Andrassy, the new Austrian premier, is about to sue directly to Italy for peace on the ground that Italy is Austria's "sole antagonist" is generally regarded as confirmatory of his understanding of the hopeless situation in the dual em pire, it. was pointed out that, since Italy solemnly engaged with the other Entente powers not to make a sep arate peace, if Austria carries out this plan it. naturally would be referred to the supreme war council. There was no official information here today as to the progress of the deliberations of the supreme war coun cil and notice was taken of the re served attitude of the council in issu ing any statements to the public. The interference is drawn that a definite policy has been agreed upon to with hold all information regarding the ds cussions before the council of the grave diplomatic and military ques tions which now engage its attention in connection with the preparation of an armistice. Jackson, Miss., Oct. 30. Mississippi voters will decide the fate of two pro posed amendments to the state con stitution, one providing that all property be classified for taxation and the other lowering the age limit for candidates for governor to 21 years when the election approving the Demo cratic nomination of the August pri mary ish eld November 5. The amendment known as the "Clas sified property tax 'amendment," fost ered by Joint committees of the house and senate of the state legislature, and supported by such progressive and constructive l'.h'. senators as W. M. Whittington and Alt Stone, Is by far the most vital of the two and its failure to pass means a step back ward in tax reform, its sponsors point out. The amendment is the result of two years' work on the part of the com mittee appointed by the legislature of 1910. It has also been approved by : Snrinira mart nan the National Tax Association, a non-! w. J. Brunson to partisan organization, as well s the progressive element In Mississippi. The amendment proposes to classify property and fix taxes for each class, instead of assessing all property by the same plan, as present method does. The amendment lowering the age of candidates for governor is promoted in favor of Speaker Sennett Conner's candidacy. He is only 28, while the age limit now stands at 30. Mr. Con ner is speaker of the house of rep resentatives of the state legislature. Strong opposition has developed against the amendment, especially among the newspapers of the state. -S'S'AV- RED CROSS SAVE PITS AND SHELLS FOR UNCLE SAM.

One com-1 candy, The nomination by the Present of : Hon. E. R. Holmes, of Yazoo City, for federal judge to succeed the late Judge Henry C. Niles, has met with general approval throughout the state. The Clarion-Ledger comments on the ap pointment as follows: The new federal judge for Missis sippi is Hon. Edwin R. Holmes, of ' Vazoo county. His name was sent to the senate by the president yesterday' evening, and his confirmation will seedily follow, as it is stated on good authority that both of the Mississippi. r senators will vote for his confirmation. The new judge was endorsed for the place by a majority of the bar of the state, and had the endorsement of the eight representatives from Mississip pi, in addition to that of Senator Wil liams. There could be no higher tes timonial of his qualifications 'and worth. A federal judge is appointed for life, unless there should he reasons to remove him for had conduct. He may retire on full pay at the age of seventy, provided he has served ten years; but as Judge Holmes is quite a young man, there will be no occasion for his re tirement for many years. In this connection it may be inter esting to recall that Mississippi has had six federal judges since being ad mitted to the Union, Judge Holmes being the seventh, as follows: William R. Shields, appointed ii 1818. Peter Randolph appointed in 182; George Adams, appointed in 1836. Samuel .1. Gholson, appointed i : 1839. Robert. A. Hill, appointed in 1866. Henry C.
