VOLUME VIII MOSCOW, LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, 1919 NUMBER WILSON MAY BE PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD President Wilson won another victory today when his plan for control of the league of nations was accepted by England and France.

Germany is preparing to deal drastically with the strikers of that country and has already put down the Spartacan rebellion at Wilhelmshaven. Now an edict is to be made that all must work and providing severe punishment for strikers. Germany seems about to establish a truly stable government and to preserve order and reestablish industry. Our government is preparing to stop work in all shipyards where strikes are called and permit the strikers to go without employment, while every effort will be made to find work for the returned soldiers. England and Ireland are in bad condition as a result of the strikes there, where all industries have been tied up in the Clyde shipyards and in Belfast, where the strikers appear to be in complete control. Admiral Mayo urges immediate naval expansion in order that the United States may do its part in policing the world when the league of nations is formed. The cable and telegraphic dispatches received today follow: Wilson's Plan Tentatively Accepted. PARIS.—Both the British and French governments have accepted in principle President Wilson's plan concerning mandatories from the league of nations for the administration of captured territory, it is stated by Captain Andre Tardeau, of the French peace conference delegation today. The acceptance, however, is subject to learning under what conditions the plan can be executed. The peace conference has settled one important point regarding indem nities, the Paris correspondent of the London Evening Standard says he has good reasons for reporting. He declared the conference had eliminated its intention of demanding of Germany and associates that they pay the Allies' cost of the war or impose heavy indemnities upon the defeated countries. » • Germans Defeat Spartacans Again.

WASHINGTON.—It will be the policy of the government in shipyard strikes to "let the job stand," Charles Fiez, director general of the emer gency fleet corporation said today. He referred particularly to Seattle, where he said men had been out a week and San Francisco, where he said it is reported that workers in two trades intended to strike shortly and tie up all work in that district. Say Seattle Vote Was Not Honest. SEATTLE.—United States Immigration Commissioner Henry M. White, acting as federal mediator in the Seattle shipyard strike, declared today he does not believe an honest expression had been obtained from the work ers themselves on shipyard strike or that an honest vote is being taken the general strike question. on Mayo Wants Bigger Navy.

Surely the best is none too good for universi ty circles and last night's apprecia tion of the better things is ample jus tification for the omission of the pop ular song." Miss Wakeman, teacher of piano at the university, said of the recital; "Mr. Scott was in excellent voice. His English songs were especially pleas ing, although his program, as a whole was not as .interesting as many he has offered before in the northwest. He won praise for his effective de livery of Handel's "Where Ere You Walk." Miss Kendrick, teacher of music in the Moscow schools: "Mr. Scott's vis it to Moscow was an interesting mus ical event and a rare treat.

The bill was introduced by Senators Nash and Nelson who appear as its sponsors. It defines political parties, provides for primaries in counties and fixes the date of Conventions. It was „introduced in the senate this forenoon. The bill is aimed at the nonpartizan league and effectually bars party organizations from the danger of theft by an organization, as was done by the nonpartizan league which stole the democratic party bodily last year. Safe guarding the people's rights to determine the selection of candidates the new bill would bring hig changes in the manner of candidate selection, the new bill would bring big changes in the manner of candidate selection, party at the last election, or that five per cent can form a separate party by registering their desire that a state convention be held.

The first four are republicans and the last named a democrat. Representative Young, republican of Ada county, came to the rescue of Representative Moody, Tuesday, when he sought to have the following reso lution adopted: "that the state af fairs committee request the presence of former Governor Alexander and C. S. Moody, if they so desire, to at tend the meeting of the committee while said committee is investigating the department of the adjutant gen eral of the state of Idaho." His mo tion lost.

Mr. Van Syke was born in America but immigrated to Canada and became a citizen there thus it required the same steps as any foreigner to again become a citizen of the United States. NINETEEN BILLS FILED TUESDAY LOWER HOUSE OF LEGISLATURE MAKES NEW RECORD—TWO BILLS ARE PASSED BOISE.—There were nineteen bills introduced into the Idaho house of representatives, Tuesday, which made a record for the sesion which was also remarkable in that the house spent more time in legislative delib eration than any day since it started. The committee of agriculture was the author of a bill which would pro vide an ad valorum tax in an effort to raise $50,000 for the use of the committee. New methods of receiv ing and awarding state highway con tracts are sought in house bill No. 76 while damage to highways caused by live stock would be penalized. Both women members of the house joined in a measure providing that an eight hour day should constitute a day's work for women. Representa tive Greenwood would make it pos sible for the people themselves to propose amendments to the constitu tion. In a voluminous bill Representative Hall would create counties as school districts and abolish all other school districts transferring their property to the county and provide for a board of education to have complete charge of the education of children. In the senate Mason of Payette in troduced a bill which would give a majority in a road district a right to "disorganize" this district after thirty days publication at the end of which a hearing would be held befbre the A number of bills were killed in the house, among them being the enabling act to create counties; one providing for the non-partisan nomination of county officials and a measure which would allow school districts to cancel indebtedness through an issue of bonds. Still other measures were assigned to the waste basket when the refer ence committee recommended that the bill abolishing capital punishment and the one making it a misdemeanor to draw checks without funds, do not pass. Two bills passed the Idaho house Tuesday afternoon when the lower body of the legislature put its legal endorsement on measures by Repre sentative Johnson and the public health committee. The former pro vided that the state appropriate suf ficient funds to meet the government appropriation for vocational education and the latter provides that county commissioners may grant a pension of not more than $25.00 per week to women of indigent circumstances who are about to be confined. SOUTH IDAHO EIGHT PROPOSAL TO CONSOLIDATE NORMAL AND TECHNICAL SCHOOLS RAISES ROW BOISE.—There loomed before the legislature today an educational fight which promises to be just as sensa tional this year as it has bejn in previous years. For it is proposed to bring about the consolidation of the Albion normal with the Idaho Technical institute at Pocatello. The prospects of this being accomplished look excellent, although a bitter fight will be made to prevent it. The educational committee of the house and senate held a joint session today and with the exception of the representatives in the legislature from Cassia county in which the nor mal is located, the committees are for the consolidation. Following the meeting this statement was issued. "The commissioner of education having stated that Governor Davis had made to him a verbal request to (Continued on page four! Dean E. J, Iddings of the Universi ty of Idaho, has just returned from a Visit to Baltimore, stopped enroute going mother in Indiana, trip he stopped at Washington, D. C., and at Boise where he spent some time in consultation on subjects of inter est to the university, the experiment station and the agricultural college. Dean Iddings has given this paper an interesting account of his trip. The trip to Baltimore was for the purpose of attending the annual meet ing of the association of American ag ricultural colleges and experiment sta tions. The meetings of the associa tion, to which delegates were accred ited from all American agricultural and mechanical colleges Maryland, and to visit his On the return were par ticularly important this year on count of properly molding the college policies to meet the needs of the construction period. ac re There were numbers of addresses and discussions that were of inter est and of direct application to the work of agricultural college and ex periment stations and extension work of the university. Of particular interest, perhaps, was the report of the committee sent abroad to study agricultural structlon in Europe. This committee made reports to the association through three addresses by. Pres. W. O. Thompson of the Ohio State University; Pres. Pearson of Iowa State College, and G. M. Rom mell of the bureau of animal husband recon ry. Only a few of the suggestions or recommendations of these men may be mentioned. A definite mendation was that, in as much as the Germans deliberately destroyed parts of Belgium and France to hinder future economical development In those nations, that she be required through prisoners and indemnities and other means to repair the dam ages in order that France especially might not enter the peace era under a handicap as compared with other .nations. Furjther recommendations were that there be placed in London, American official representatives of agriculture having power to handle phases of the food problem, make re ports, and give advice in regard to sending supplies to Europe. One speaker emphasized the great work done by England in 1918, in in creasing the home grown food sup plies. Prior to the war she grew enough food to last her people 10 weeks. By plowing up 10,000 acres of pasture, she was able to produce crops so far in excess of what she had pro duced heretofor, that she was able to grow at home and support her people for a total of 40 weeks. This fact is one of the great feats of the entire war. In Mr. Rommell's reference to live stock, he was surprised to find In. Brittany in particular, no appreciable reduction in the cows and heifers and the same of horses on the farms, but a decline in the number of the city hors es. The sheep were decreased to 9, 460,000 head and one-third of the pigs have been lost during the war. There is no decline in the pure breed industry in England. In France the condition is not so good. Dur ing one year of war she lost over 2,000,000 head of cattle, since then the decline has been less than two per cent. Horses have been lost to the amount of 1,000,000 head and sheep reduced from 16,000,000 to 10,500,000 head; pigs from 7,000,000 to 4,000,000 head. In Italy the loss has been about the same as France. Belgium is cleaned out of everything. * Rommell feels that as soon as the shipping state is more satisfactory, a considerable number of horses may be sent to replace Europe's losses; also a possible shipment of 'sheep abroad. In pigs, the necessary number oan be attained easily and rapidly on ac count of the rapid increase of swine. Dairy cattle are needed everywhere and many will be shipped. The first consignment has already been purchased, mostly in the states of the middle west, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The official U. S. dairy department has chosen E. V. Ellington, the former head of dairying at the University of Idaho, as one of the committee of purchasers. This is a* distinguished compliment to Mr. Ellington and his many Idaho friends will be well pleas ed. The first shipment of 100 head of registered Holsteins are now enroute to tidewater. Some time was spent in visiting the different bureaus of the U. S. depart ment of agriculture at Washington. The agricultural college, experi ment stations and the extension work of the university have received three or four increases in the federal sup ports tp further the work in Idaho. The trip was a busy one, but full of pleasure and profit. Call it Roosevelt Canal. BOISE.—The state senate today memorialized congress asking it to change the name of the Panama canal to the Roosevelt canal.
