INSURE WITH McCLASKEY.
LIVE STOCK AND CEREALS
Since Hie- United States Food Ad
ministration ends with the procla
mation of peace by the President, it
appears that a brief statement of
facts as they now appear in regard
to live stock and cereal possibilities
for the United States in the future
may be of (uteri si as a basis for such
deductions on your part on behalf of
agricultural and live stock interests
as present evidence warrants.
In peace time Europe, excluding
Russia and Turkey, consumed 25,
--000,000,000 pounds of meat per
year. As comprehensive a survey as
it is posible to make with he pre
vailing chaotic European conditions
indicates that in the coming year the
meal supply of the European coun
tries from home sources will total
about seven and one-half billion
pounds —at the most not more than
ten billion pounds,
Surplus meat supplies throughout
the world Indicate that a total of
seven and one-half billion pounds can
be supplied to Europe from outside
sources, of which about four and one
fourth billion pounds can be sent
from the United States. There is not
pork enough In the world to nearly
•supply the demand.
Of course, it is not safe to assume
that meat consumption in Europe in
the coming year will lie normal, even
if normal supplies could be fur
nished. However, 20 percent reduc
tion in consumption demand would
still leave a 25 per cent deficit.
The future of cereal demand is in
some degree dependent upon the ma
chinery which will be set up in Eu
rope for food distribution, if finan
ces can be arrange ami equality of
distribution prevails it seems safe to
assume that the- surplus stocks ac-:
cumulated in various points of the
world will be almost entirely con
sumed this yea--, and safely out of
he way when the next harvest comes
in. An Increase in food production
is to be expected for the coming year.
However, it seems Improbable that
tie entire Increase will more than
equal the surpluses which were re-
leased when the armistice was
signed. Therefore, the total amount
of food from tie coming world har
vest will probably only equal that of
the last harvest, plus the accumulat
ed ed supplies released iii India,
Australia and the Argentine.

LIIMIKA.vr VAN VOKIS
Tells How Mate College Graduate
Was Killed Deadlaeg Pat to
Maintain Contact Between
Praise of the highest order for bis
valor and bravery is tie: award given
to Lieut Howard 11. Van Vorli of
the 364 th infantry, 91st division,
who died on the field of battle at
Meulebeke, Belgium, on October 31,
a willing martyr for tin- cause of
freedom, In tie face of a withering
Qerman firo and disregarding all
warning be personally led a patrol to
learn tin- position of enemy troops.
Lieut. Van Voris was one of the
most prominent of Tacoma's young
men, being active in business and so
cial life, in January of last, year be
married .Miss Gladys E. Maddock, the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph
Maddock of 505 North M street, T.i
lie received his training at the
Presidio and after receiving his com
mission was assigned to C company
364 th infantry, as Intelligence offic
er. Ho was a graduate, of Washing
ton State College.
Mrs. Van Voris has received the
following letter from Major lleiimph
reys of the 364 th, praising in the
highest, terms the manner in which
Van Voris met his death. The letter
"In attempting the melancholy
task of writing about the great loss
the war has brought upon you, and
expressing the deep sympathy of all
the officers of the regiment, I must
tell you that our keen regret over tin
loss of Lieut. Van Voris is tempered
by pride in his courage and fine
achievements as a soldier. * * *
"The night of October 30 Lieut.
Van Voris undertook the difficult
task of finding a place on the map to
which none of us knew the way, over
roads which were constantly shelled.
lie succeeded and brought back or
ders to attack the enemy at down.
This attack was begun on the morn
ing of October 31 and resulted in
driving the enemy several miles
across the Scheldt river. During the
forenoon of October 31 we had a
stubborn fight and had great diffi
culty in learning how our right flank
company was progressing. After sev
eral runners had been sent for this
necessary information and brought
none, Lieut. Van Voris volunteered
to take patrol and learn what was
"As ha passed the front lines he
was cautioned not to cross a certain
hill on which he expected to find the
right of our lines; he was warned
that our troops were not there and
that the hill was swept by German
fire. Such was his disregard for bis
own safety that he determined to
push on and he personally took the
most advanced position in his patrol.
After penetrating beyond our front
lines be was tsruck by machine gun
bullets and instantly killed.
"He was one of the bravest men I
have ever seen. He thought of noth
ing except doing what he could to
insure the success of our attack; he
was a splendid example of a leader
whose performance of his duty was
not modified or abated by the pres
ence of the enemy or the thought of
danger, or lessened by fatigue.
"The lieutenant was buried where
lie fell, about one mile south of Wae
regem. His burial was directed by
the regimental chaplain, who held a
short burial service, bravely disre
garding the shells which were still
failing nearby on November 1. His
grave is plainly marked so that
Identification will be easy.
"I have written you these details
because I thought you would want to
know them, rather than having the
tormenting uncertainty of conject
ure. For your loss there is no con
solation, but we extend our sym
pathy. In time, 1 hope, your griet
will be lessened to the point where
you can share our feelings of pride
in him as a splendid soldier, whose
qualities 1 like to believe are- also
those of a good American."
Lieut. Van Voris, son of Mrs. A. L
Yates of Asotin, Wash., came to W.
s c. from Asotin high school and
graduated with the class of 1917. We
of the student body and faculty who
remember Howard sympathise with
the family in their loss but feel proud
to have known one of America's
greatest heroes in the world war.
A posthumous award of a medal
was made to Lieut. Van Voris for his

Camp Sheridan, Ala., Dec. 29
Some kind friend sent me the Christ

seemed to bring me back to the old
days which I had thought had gone
for good. But i guess they manage
to stick around somewhere and all
they need is a gentle hint once in a

went out to Soldiers Field to see the
Camp Sheridan football team clean
up on the enemy from Camp Shelby.
Of course 1 did not expect to enjoy
myself very much because the old
spirit seemed lacking, but when the
enemy began to get into action 1
heard a very familiar voice and I
hope to die if there wasn't little
Johnny Bender playing quarter for
Shelby and when he made a big end
run for his team I plum forgot which
team I was to root for. I jumped up
and yelled until the bleachers hol
lered "Put the Loot out." It cer
tainly seemed good to see him talk
the officials out of everything but a
touchdown, anil he wore that W. S.
C. smile ail the time and, Oh! how
he could kid! It made me feel warm
all over—so there is something in
that W. S. C. spirit after all.
I can't tell you anything about the

any nearer the front than the point
