"Abstain From Wheat Until Harvest; Use Sugar With Great Economy." VICTOR REYES Bolivian Envoy Carries H'a Country's Greetings to Japan. HOOVER. I mm T Tha following appeal hat Just been Issued by Herbert Hoover, Unltea States Food Administrator, through the churchea and fraternal organizations of Ohio: i HE confldence of the 1'iutod States Food Administration that the people of tha country would respond enthusiuKtlcullv and whole heurtedly. uoon Dresentatlon of the facta, to yj ' any necessary requests tor reduction In consumption of food hue been fully justified. We have deninnstrntiul nnr aliiliiv lint nnlv tn think toL'itther. but tn act (mirnthpr Thla rnnnnnaa of the people la the reason for the present appeul. Our work Is not yet complete. In spile of the encouraging results of our efforts. In spite of the fact that our exports of food mulls are constantly increasing aud are approaching the minimum re quirements abroad, the need for renewed devotion and effort Is pressing. While all Uie requirements of the Food Administration should be constantly observed, there are certain matters which I desire to stress at this time. In the case of meat and meet products the necessities for shipment abroad are very great. Whereas the alllod consumtpion has been reduced to an average of about one and one-quarter pounds per person per week, we are today enjoying an average nt about three and one-quarter pounds per person per week. This division is inequitable. An understanding of these facts will justify our request that the consump tion of all meats, Including poultry, as nearly as possible, be reduced tn two pounds per week per person over four years of age. In the case of sugar we are embarrassed by the. necessity of using ships for carrying our soldiers and feeding the allien, and, In consequence, WE MIST USE SUGAR WITH GREAT ENCONOMY. We must emphasise the importance of canning and preserving on a large scale among our people this summer and our available sugar must bo conserved for this purpose. But the situation with regard to wheat is the most serious in the food supply of the Allied world. If we are to satisfy the minimum wheat requirements of our armies and the allies and the suffering mil lions in the allied countries, our consumption of wheat in the United States iintil the next harvest must he reduced to approximately one-third of normal. It Is inconceivable that we should fall in this crisis. For each of us who can personally contribute to the relief of human suffering, it is a privilege, not a sacrifice. . . All elements of our population can not bear this burden equally. Those engaged in physical labor need a larger bread ration than those in sedentary occupations. Because of the constant daily employ ment of women and the lack of home baking facilities, many households in large urban centers require a food ration already prepared, such as the bakers standard Victory brend loaf. Furthermore, we must constantly safeguard the special requirements of children and invalids. To meet the situation abroad and to prevent serious suffering at home it Is Imperative that all those whose clrcumstancer permit shall ABSTAIN' FROM WlfKAT AND WHEAT PRODUCTS IN ANY FORM UNTIL THE NEXT HARVEST. It Is realized and deeply apperciated that many organizations and some communities have already agreed 1o follow this plan. It is hoped that you will communicate this to your organization and your community, urging those whose circmstances will permit to join with us and take this stand. HERBERT HOOVER. f i-iMkM if m 'ADOO BOOSTS RAILWAY RATES Both Freight and Passenger Charges Are Affected. FORMER ADVANCED 25 PERCENT Director General to Welcome From State Commissions Suggestions For Readjustment of Rates on Intra state Traffic Passenger Fares to Be Increased to Three Cents a Mile on June 10. Washington, May 28. The railroad administration announced that 25 per cent rate increases on class and com modity freight rates will go Into ef fect June 25. Passenger fares will be raised to 3 cents a mile June 10. Some heavy commodities, largely handled, will undergo raises of more than 25 per cent. The rate increases were designated as necessary because of the need to meet higher operating expenses estimated at from $S:'.G,000,000 to $S60,OO0,0O0 more than 'ast year. Passengers traveling in standard sleepers or parlor cars will be sub ject to an additional half cent per mile rate for travel ticket, in addition to charges for the seat or berth It self. Commuters nu..;t pay 10 per cent more than now, while water rates rates will be advanced In pro portion to rail rates. State railroad or rate commissions have no authority to change the rates, the railroad administration holds, even though many provisions of the new order more than double the charges for short hauls within states. The director general explain ed in a telegram to chairmen of state commissions, however, that he will welcome suggestions for readjust ment of rates on intrastate traffic, and these will be referred to the In terstate commerce commission for Its consideration in passing on spe cific complaints. State commissions also may enter formal protests direct to the interstate commerce commis sion. The additional charges must event ually te absorbed in higher prices of commodities, It was noted by ship pers' interests, and this effect may be noticed particularly for coal, brick, lumber, meats and grain and for ma terials shipped to market only a short distance. 56 AMERICANS LOST British Transport Torpedoed by an Enemy Submarine.

Washington, May 29. Congress has yielded to President Wilson's de mand that a war revenue measure be enacted at this session. There still was reluctance in soma quarters to beliere immediate rev enue legislation imperative, but plans for midsummer adjournment were abandoned and both Democratic and Republican leaders expressed their determination to go at the task of passing a war tax bill with a will.

The total for last week was 36,677 and for the week be fore 41,612, the largest of any week since the beginning of the German offensive. WILL DEVELOP COMMUNITY EFFICIENCY presented to the people. Cairns is an old Chautauqua favor ite. His lips sparkle with native Irish wit, and he can't pet the spirit of fight out oi his soul, ihe things he is for he upholds with all his might, those in which he does not believe will find him fighting to the last. His appearance on the platform is always the signal for applause, for people everywhere have heard, him and love him, and are eager to hear him again. Teacher, traveler, lecturer, author and preacher, he is widely known as "both the funniest and most serious man alive." For four years he was a t?acher in Japan and later a college professor of English in America. Since the Chautauqua platform found him out, he has been kept busy spreading his magnetism under the big top. And this year, with his vital 'iT message, he is more popular than ever.

To initiate the bill, it was an nounced that public hearings would be begun early in June by the house ways and means committee, to be followed by co-operation in its draft ing with the senate finance commit tee. Presentation of the measure to the house in July was regarded as assured. One of the big problems to be work ed out first is the proportion of new taxes to bond issue authorizations. In the neighborhood of $20,000,000,000 must be provided to meet expenses of the coming year. In a memoran dum recently given to members of congress, the president suggested that 40 per cent should be raised by taxation. This would mean bond is sues for some $12,000,000,000, and doubling of the approximately $4,000, 000.000 levied in taxes this year. Representative Kitchin, chairman of the ways and means committee, announced that he had called on the treasury for a great deal of data for submission before calling the com mittee together. The entire commit tee will participate In framing the measure. Mr. Kitchin said the Increases from the income and excess profits taxes will be effected by readjusting excess profits anj income surtaxes and that the bill will double the aggregate re ceived from these sources without doubling the rates. He said there is little room to lower the $1,000 and $2,000 incomes, respectively, now al lowed single and married persons. Those who have made large profits as the result of the war, he declared, will be especially aimed at. At least two weeks of public hearings arc planned, and Mr. Kitchin said he did not see how the bill eould become a law until about Nov. 1. JAMES S. KNOX How efficient is your community?
