CONTEST IS ON OVER STEEL Many Members Want That Product and Iron Included in Control Provision Shoe Con tract Criticised. Washington. July 18. The revised food bill designed to solve the sen ate's troubles over the legislation, was taken up with prospects of voting be ing begun very soon on Its proposals as well as other amendments. A spirited contest is promised over the bill's new proposals for limited government control of food, feed and fuel and for a special food administra tion board. Many senators plan to de mand extensions of government con tracts to include iron and steel, and a food board of five members, instead of three, as proposed. Despite this, however, sentiment was general in the senate, that the revlsel bill would meet most objec tions and insure its passage. The measure was evolved In conference of senate democratic and republican leaders. Chief Revisions Recommended. Principal revisions recommended by the leaders are for limitation of gov ernment control of foods, feeds and fuels. Including kerosene and gaso line; creation of a special board of food administration of three salaried commissioners, instead of administra tion by an individual; fixing by con gress of a basic minimum price of $1.73 a bushel for No. 1 Northern wheat; extension of government li censing to elevators, farm machinery, factories, packing houses, coal mines and dealers, fertilizer producers and wholesalers of such products and gov ernment purchase and sale, to secure reasonable prices " for fuel, wheat, flour, meal, beans and potatoes only. Senator McKellar, democrat, of Ten nessee, made a long speech criticising the contract policy of the defense council's advisory board. The seven per cent commissions for supervising construction of army cantonment cam pa, he declared, will "milk the government" of about $250,000 for each of the 16 camps. He charged that "inside rings" dominate con tracts for the army, let without com petitive bids. World-old standards of honesty and ethics, declared Senator Johnson of California, republican, require that government representatives shall not serve in a dual capacity for them selves and the government Senator Townsend of Michigan, another re publican, warned that "a host of vul tures are flocking to Washington to secure war contracts and that the op portunity granted, if not eliminated, might develop a public scandal. Shoe Contracts Criticised. Shoe contracts were the basis of criticism by Senator Kenyon of Iowa, republican, who said men were using Influence to get contracts and advo cated action prohibiting government representatives from contracting for their own products. During the debate Herbert Hoover, the food administrator, also was criti cised by Senator Gore and warmly de fended by Senator Chamberlain and Myers. Senator Weeks attacked the shipping board and Its fleet corpora tion for not hastening action on the shipping board program. HOW TO SEND MAGAZINES TO U. S.

Wiliams replied: "President Wilson did everything he could Jo to prevent war. He never could have obtained a just peace. That was a dream because that crowd in Berlin had a profound contempt for the American people. "America has got to go through the war, without 'ifs' or buts' or 'ands,' to see a just and lasting peace. This curont be obtained as long as there is entJi!(nod ; a man insane enough to believe he rules by divine right, with God as an intimate part ner."

RAIN BENEFICIAL TO CORN AND VEGETABLES Storm With Heavy Downpour Sweeps City Telephone Wires Torn Down by Wind. Mrs. Adolph Seabaugh was render ed unconscious and her home on South Frederick street badly damaged when the building was struck twice in a short interval yesterday afternoon. The plastering in one of the rooms was torn from the ceiling by the firs? bolt, while the second did only a slight damage to the exterior of the house, mainly the chimney. Mrs. Seabaugh was unconscious for several minutes. When she recovered it was found that she had sustained 3 severe wound on her forehead, anil is believed she suffered the injury in striking her head on the floor. None of the others in the house was hurt by the lightning. The storms that swept over the city yesterday afternoon and evening brought the first heavy rain in many weeks. The pourdown was so heavy that the streets in many sections or the city were flooded. At some places the water was more than a foot deep. Main street and Broadway resem bled swift mountains streams. The water on both sides of the streets wa so deep that it was almost impossible to cross the thoroughfare. Street car traffic was blocked for more than an hour due to wire trouble caused hy lightning. The cars were tied up for nearly an hour. A severe electrical storm accom panied the downpour, continuing for more than half an hour. Later in tnc evening a second storm with a heavy rain broke over the city. The usual Saturday evening shoppers were ab sent from the business streets. The afternoon storm also impaired busi ness to a great extent keeping many out-of-town shoppers at home. The rain was greatly needed for corn and vegetables, now beginning to mature. A few light rains that fell sir.ee the earlier part of June wer. not sufficient to relieve the fields am? the gardens of the drought. Several times during the past four weeks the Cape was passed up fcy hcaw rains. The counties south of Cape Girardeau County have had sev eral heavy showers during that time, while the rain in the Cape was only very light. According to Mr. Dalton, agent for Hon. Louis Houck, the outlook for the corn crop is the best in many years. Mr. Dalton has traveled over tne ereater part of Southeast Missouri and found the com in better condition than anticipated. The hot weather, he said, had in no way affected the proj- pects for a good com yield, inasmuch as the corn had not begun to show its tassles during the last drought. With the splendid wheat crop re ported from all sections of the Stare, and in fact, from many other States. it is believed that wheat and corn wiTT reah a normal price again. Reports from points north of the city indicate that a heavy storm raged during the afternoon and again in the evening. All telephonic connections with St. Louis and Ste. Genevieve and other towns north of the Cape were broken by the violent storm. A num ber of telephones in the city were put out of commission by the storm. construction of Broadway; J. H.
