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

Washington, Oct. 27. Upward re

rates for practically all the shipyard
trades, effective immediately, was an-

labor adjustment board. Two great

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

enormous total. Officials state that

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.

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
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
