farmers were responsible for present
conditions, Mr. Howard said:
Defends the Farmers.
"The high cost of living is not due !
to lack of desire or effort on the!
part of the farmers to produce to
the limit of their physical ability.
The farmer has not struck, walked j

The high coat of living Is dee
to a stagnation in the prod net Ion
of manufactured gooSn nnd pre
pared foodstuffs. Every labor
strike that shuts dorm any plant
engaged In the .production of
foods or the making of cloth Inc.

The monetary loss from looting Is es
timated at thousands ot pounds by
police authorities.
The trouble started when Na
tionalists set fire to a number of
tar barrels which had been col
lected beneath an arch over which
was displaced a picture of Ed
ward de Valern, president of the
Irish republic, and sane the SoI
dlcrs Song. Unionists responded
by slnglnc the national anthem
One force of troops kept the crowds
apart, while other detachments at
tempted to clear tbe streets, charg

hurt. The Nationalists were finally
driven back to their own quarters.

Windows were smashed and shops ,
were looted and the city was In dark
ness the entire night.
Although several revolver shots
were heard during the rioting, no re
port of anyone having been wounded
has been received. The troops declare
that none of them tired any shots and
that when they drove back the crowds,
they advanced with their bayonets
raised in the air.
The soldiers used In suppress

Unionists In Londerry, last night

at 4 oclock this morning.

Mr. Howard said Ihe hlgb cost
of Uvlns was due to "extravagant
profits of mlddlemcni failure of
the American people to "practice
cea ordinary economy In public
nnd private life. and Industrial
strikes. Exportation of food and
clothlnc he said, was no more a
contributing cause than the
heavy exports of manufactured
jroods and machinery of which
the farmer Is a heavy purchaser.
"An embargo on roodstuiis to bring
down the high cost of living, he
said, "will be as demoralizing to
American agriculture as tbe embargo
placed on foodstuffs was to French i
agriculture in the time of Louis XIV."
Mr. Howard also deplored tbe veto(
of the act to repeal the daylight sav
ing law and said tbe president's state- 1
ment. In his veto message. In effect
placing agricultural production sec
ond in importance to industrial pro

Those Yanks Changed
The Map Of Europe
THEY whittled down Germany, caused Austria to go to pieces like a
dropped dinner plate, built a great new nation around Serbia, doubled
the sire of Rumania, defined the boundaries of a tier of nations that reaches
from Greece to the Arctic Ocean, and made over the heart of that continent
that is the mother of modern civilization.
Through all that thousand years of the past when there has been inter
iange among men, the center of world interest has been in Europe. To
most people now living the map has known no change. The picture of it
has become fixed in the world mind.
Now that picture must be rubbed out and another indelibly impressed
in its place. The eye must be given an opportunity to familiarize itselt
with new boundaries, to imprint what it sees on the tablets of the mind.
To do this it must have before it the post-war picture of a continent.
The first worth while map of the New Europe has been made by the
Geological Survey, a map that indicates all the changes as set forth by
the peace treaty, a map which is accompanied by a publication of the
Treasury Department entitled "How Other People Get Ahead." Both free
