By Associated Press
KANSAS CITY. Dec. 26. AH men
being enlisted at the naval recruiting
office here are being given Indefinite
furloughs of from three to six weeks,
They are sent to their homes In the
district at Government expense and
when called Into active service are
given transportation to their training
stations. On arrival there receive pay
from the date of enlistment.
"The furloughs are due primarily
to the crowded conditions at the naval
training stations," said Lieutenant
Ralph B. Campbell, aid to Commadore
J. M. Orchard, in charge of the sta
tion. "Then, too, we consider It al
most a necessity for the men to go
home to say goodbye to their folks.
They feel much better- about It when
they leave for active service from
their homes than when they leave
from a recruiting office where no one
seems to care much about the sacri
fices they are making."

A , FORMER
Anniversary of Battle
New Orleans Has Been
Honored by State.
Observance of Missouri's first cen
tennial date In all the schools of the
state has been planned by the Execu
tive Committee of One- Thousand on
Missouri's Centennial of Statehood.
This first celebration marks the be
ginning of centennial observance's td
be held over the state down to Au
gust 10. 1921.
Flag drills, public addresses and
pioneer relic displays will be made
with the object of stimulating the In
terest of MIssourlans In Missouri his
tory. Such historic cities as Boon
vllle, Lexington, Fayette, Liberty, In
dependence, St. Joseph, Hannibal,
Louisiana. St. Genevieve, Jackson,
Potosl. Cape Girardeau, New Madrid
and Springfield will make their cele
brations extend beyond county limits.
January 8 Is already significant to
the people of the state as Andrew
Jackson Day, According to a pam-
nhet issued by the Committee of The
Thousand, MIssourlans were largely
instrumental In winning the Battle of
New Orleans. Bullets for Jackson 8
Army were manufactured at Hercu
laneum In what Is now Jefferson
County. Also, through the generosity
of John Mullanphy of St Louis, all
the cotton of New Orleans was bought
up for the Army to use as Breast
works. When news of the victory
was sent from New Orleans to Joseph
Charless, editor of the Missouri Ga
zette at St. Louis, the whole .town was
Illuminated with tallow candles.
The people of Missouri until verjrl
recent years celebrated Andrew Jack
son Day In a manner similar to a
Fourth of July observance. Thus,
when the time came to present the
petition for statehood, the aniversary
of the Battle of New Orleans was
chosen as the most fitting date.
Then was launched the "Missouri
Question," which Thomas Jefferson
said was "the most portentous which
ever threatened our nation."
The" pamphlet efld3lwHhthts tribute
to the great men who have helped to
make and develop Missouri.
"Missouri's past, her present great
ness and patriotic contributions In the
Nation are records of pride. Such
men as William Clark, Thomas H.
Benton, David Barton, Edward Bates,
Lewlp F. Linn, Frank P. Blair, Alex
ander W. Doniphan, George G. Vest.
Richard P. Bland, Mark Twain, Eu
gene Field. James B. Eads, George C.

ers of National renown, adorn her

Fuel Administration Lays
Stress on Production In
stead of Prices.
Conditions at Present Better
'Than They Have Been,
By Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Dec. 26. War de
mands for bituminous coal have been
greater than the mines could meet,
although a normal increase In pro
duction has been maintained. Fuel
Administrator Garfield testified today
before the Senate committee Investi
gating the coal situation. In an effort
to ''alleviate conditions, he said, the
Fuel Administration was laying em
phasis on stimulating production
rather than on regulating prices!
"When the operators complain that
tha prices fixed by the President are
to$ low," he said, "We are inclined to
give them the benefit of the doubt"
Senator Kenyon asked Mr. Garfield
if he had information concerning the
dividends of some of the large opera
tors. The fuel administrator replied
that he knew that big profits were toe
ing made in some cases, but he be
lieved them necessary In order to en
Private consumers, ne continueq,
had been feeling the shortage most
keenly, as the Government demands
had been satisfied first However,
that rule had been changed In the last
'We are giving the people tie pref
erence now," he said. "With a dis
contented people not much progress
could be made In the prosecution of
the war. Conditions are now much
better than they have been. The
severe cold wave has passed, and we
are making preparations ior me iu
ture. I can guarantee that we now
have the situation well In hand."
.lr. Garfield said that he did not
want to blame anyone for the lack of
transportation facilities, nor try to
shift any tolame which might be prop
erly attached to him. It was Impera
tive, he said, to aid the railways in
coping with the situation.

A Tim n flan f armada finni-iara Anirttr mil Ml
Injury to pastures, cereal and forage
crops, and late vegetables and fruit
trees, have led United States Depart
ment of Agriculture entomologists to
fear that there will be much trouble
from these insects in Missouri next
year. Grasshopper infestations this
year have been very general in that
state, according to reports from the
entomologist of Missouri. In places
they have stripped portions of early
wheat and rye. Special measures are
being planned to combat them.
Of the vegetable pests, the plant
lice, potato beetles, cabbage WQrms

WILLIAMS MAY RUN RAILWAYS
Comptroller Considered as Possible
By Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Dec 26. John
Skelton Williams, Comptroller of the
currency, was being discussed In of

probable selection by President Wil

It is regarded As likely that If Mr.

of the office will be undertaken by

Treasury. Secretary .McAdoo would
not relinquish his present position,
but would surround himself with a
cabinet of railway men.
These developments were pointed
to as evidence ot a disposition on the

By Associated Press
LONDON, Dec. 26. Occasional as
sertions have been made in dispatches
from Fetrograd that the influence and
power of the Bolshevikl govefnment
were waning, but never was there
such unanimity of opinion on this
point as Is expressed In the dispatches
of correspondents dated Sunday and
published here today. Nearly all re
port that disaffection among the sol
diers' and workmen's organlzaUons Is
growing. The conclusions of the cor
respondents are based on a general
lack of authority by the Bolshevikl
government, the increase in drunken
ness, the refusal of many Bolshevikl
adherents to work and the food scarc
ity. The soldiers are said to desire
peace above all other things. The
correspondents cite the refusal of
Bolshevikl troops to March against
the Ukrainians and their surrender of
arms to the Cossacks without resist
ance. Fighting apparently Is the last
thing the soldiers desire.
A survival of the hostile spirit Is
noted among the Baltic sailors and
the Red Guard, but the former are not
numerous enough to conquer the Uk
