GERMANY GOING TO PIECES.
Events are following each other in
tapid succession in Germany. The form
|r chancellor Von Hertling resigned and
his successor is a man who opposed Ger
many's military attitude and designs.
Hindenburg, the idol of the German
(people, who was to be the Moses to
lead them of the
defeat coming and resigned as com
mander of the army. ,
Ludendorff, claimed to be "the brains"
of Germany's war party, has had
"physical collapse," and he, too, quits
the kaiser's army.
And now comes a rumor, as yet un
confirmed, but believed by many to be
founded on fact, that the kaiser has
abdicated., If this is true, and it is well
within the range of possibilities, Ger
many's complete downfall is but a short
way off. It may be months, it may be
weeks and it may possibly be but days,
but it is near at hand.
The German soldiers will not continue
to fight and die when they learn that
those commanding them know that to
fight is useless and 5rc already quitting
the sinking of ships.
Germany, whicTT planned to rule the
world, is today a hopeless wreck, occu
pying a far worse position than did
Spain at the close of her war with the
United States. It would be pitiable, did
not the Germans deserve a far worse
fate than that which now awaits them
and which they cannot avoid.
But, no matter whether Germany col
lapses this week, this month or this
year, the United States needs every dol
lar of the six billion for which it has
asked the people of the country, and it
must have it. We must help our allies
to recuperate after the war. Wc must
bring back our soldiers—your son and
mine—and we must start them in useful
occupations and to do this the United
States must have thecash. It offers you
the best security in the world and a good
rate of interest.
When our soldiers—boys from Mos
cow and neighboring towns, counties
and states, have offered their lives,
whipped the Hun and are still fighting
him to the death—we would, indeed, he
worse than slackers to fail to support
them at this critical time.

SAVE MILL FEED
FOR DAIRY CATTLE!
FOOD ADMINISTRATION URGES
CONSERVATION TO INCREASE
Owing to the extension of the drought
area, the shortening of the corn crop,
the larger animal population in the
country, and the Allied demands upon
us for feeding stuffs for their own ani
mals because of their own shortage in
production of feed grain, it is necessary
that we should exert every effort in the
proper conservation of feeding stuffs
during the next twelve months; yet we
must maintain our own animal produc
»on. It is necessary that we should ship
a larger proportion of wheat as compared
i vv ' t ' 1 flour during the next twelve months
than during the last twelve months to
the allied countries, because their own
shortage of feeding stuffs is such that
I if they arc to keep alive their dairy herds.
they must have a larger supply of grain
Already the milk supply in the allied
countries has been limited practically to
the supply of children and other vitally
" ecessar y u f es >. and a.^ failure
on our part to supply them with neces
sar y feed stuffs for their dairy herd
means that we shall cut into the actual
safety of the children amongst the allies,
On üt ^ ,er hand, both our own popula
tion and the allies arc dependent upon
our production of animal products, and
we do not in any way wish to stifle this
production. What we must secure m
the utmost elimination of waste by the
careful feeding of animals and the use
of all the roughage available.
One of the difficult problems is the
distribution of wheat mill feeds, and this
is made more difficult by the fact that
the food administration, in an endeavor
to protect the farmer, is maintaining an
artificially low price on these feeds. One
consequence is that a great deal of mill
feeds are now going unnecessarily into
work animals or beef production. Every
farmer will recognize that the wheat mill
feeds are vitally necessary for the dairy
cattle, to some extent for the poultry,
and for young pigs. Owing to the ab
sorption of mill feeds at local points
near the mill, considerable sections of
the dairy industry are practically without
mill feeds and our dairy production is
thereby in danger. With view to cor
recting this, so far as possible, the food
administration desires to appeal for the
assistance of the farmers of the country
in the use and distribution of wheat mill
feeds. In this view, we are asking every ,
buyer of wheat mill feeds, outside of
acute drought area, to sign a pledge
honor not to use the wheat mill feeds
for any purpose except the essential use
in dairy, young pig and poultry produc
tion, and not to purchase or hold at any
one time more than 60 days' supply. Un
less we can secure this careful and spe
cialized use of mill feeds, our dairy pro
duction in the congested eastern areas
of the L T nited States is bound to fall and
to jeopardise the food supply of our peo
ple in that section. Otherwise it will be
necessary to release the price restrictions
on mill feeds and allow them to take
their natural course.
With a view to securing this co-opera
tion from the farmers all over the coun
try in the interest of their industry as a
whole, we are instructing the mills and
all dealers in feeds to secure from the
buyer of wheat mill feeds the following
order to assist the food ad
ministration in the distribution of mill
feeds, I hereby undertake on honor
not to use wheat mill feeds for any
other purpose than the feeding of
dairy cattle, poultry, young pigs or
young calves, or the preparation of
r *weekly bran mash for work animals.
I will not feed any more wheat mill
feeds than I customarily fed to such
animals and I further agree not to
have at any one time more than a
60-day supply of feedstuffs on hand."
The food administration is also re
quiring the millers and feed jobbers
to distribute their wheat mill feeds
in such manner that each state re
ceives the same proportion of the mill's
or jobber's shipments as it received
in the same quarter in 1917.

High Mass at Potlatch.
POTLATCH.—A solemn high mass
was said at the St. Mary's church at
10:30 yesterday morning by Father Zuur

containing nineteen stars was dedicated
in their honor. The choir was lead by
Mrs, Will Wakeman. accompanied by
Dr. E. T. Hein. The Rev. H. Morris,
formerly in charge of this district, con
ducted the evening services. Special
services are being held every night this
month for all the boys in the service.
MANY GIRL STUDENTS
iLARGE NUMBER OF FEMALE
j STUDENTS FROM NORTHWEST
I Despite the deep interest that is being
. taken in military affairs at the Univer
j sity of Idaho, the number of girl students
! enrolled is very large and is really a
I surprise to university authorities. So
i much interest was centered in the new
military department that it was feared
the number of girl students would fall
below the average for former years, but
instead of that a new record will be set
it is believed.
The girls come from all parts of the
northwest. Idaho is represented well,
1 nearly every county in the state having
I girl students here. Spokane has more
j students than any point outside of the
stare, hut they come from many points
■ in Washington and from other northwest
