GERMAN SEIZURE OF CHAUNY MAY COMPEL WITHDRAWAL OF FRENCH LINES. CRITICAL HOUR 0 F WAR Much Rests On the Use of the Allied ••Army of Maneuver’' Organized By Versailles Conference—May Be Decisive Force of Battle. Ixnulon. — The official reports rep resent the battle position in France as undoubtedly grave. The newspa pers recognize, but do not attempt to appraise, the sitation or phophesy tho course of events. They consider this tlie critical hour of the war. The German seizure of Chauny may compel the withdrawal of tho French lines, in order to preserve contact and alignment with the Brit ish. Much rests on the use of the al lied “army of maneuver,” organized by the Versailles conference, which may prove the decisive force of tho battle. The Daily Mail says that if Field Marshal Haig's report that the Ger mans broke through west of St. Quentin uses the terms “broke through” in the generally accepted military sense, it is serious, but that time alone can show the correct in terpretation. The Daily Grpahic says: "In the main the enemy is held. Nevertheless we are bound to recog nize that the situation viewed as a whole is critical.” Pointing out that the Germans have been able to bring to bear at certain points of the line an attacking force which vastly numbers the defenders, the Grpahic concludes: “But providing the breaking of the line involves no panic, but only a re tirement to previously prepared posi tions, the loss is reparable.” Ukraine Conditions Told. Washington. — The G« rman view of the food stocks available in Ukrainia and conditions generally in that country is given in a dispatch from lierne, quoting a Berlin telegram pub lished by the Strassburger Post, March 14.

To The American People There is no foundation for the alleged violations of law attributed to our Com pany by agents of the Federal Trade Commission and I want to say emphatic ally that Swift & Company is not a party to any conspiracy to defraud the Govern ment. Nor has Swift & Company been guilty of improperly storing foods or of making false entries or reports. Conferences of packers, where prices have been discussed, have been held at the urgent request and in the presence of representatives of either the Food Administration or the Council of National Defense. And yet the packers have been accused of committing a felony by acting in collusion on Government bids 1 We have done our best, with other packers, large and small, to comply with the directions of the United States Food Administration in all particulars, including the furnishing of food supplies for the U. S. Army and Navy and the Allies, now be ing handled through the Food Adminis tration. We will continue to do our utmost, un der Government direction, to increase our production and assist the Food Adminis tration. We consider that the opportunity to co-operate whole-heartedly and to our fullest powers with this branch of the Government is our plain and most press ing duty. The Trade Commission Attorney has, by false inference and misplaced empha sis, given to disconnected portions of the correspondence taken from our private files and read into the Record, a false and sinister meaning with the plain purpose of creating antagonistic public opinion. The services of the packers of the United States are most urgently needed, and I regret exceedingly that we should at this time have to spend our efforts in defending ourselves against unfounded, unproved, and unfair assertions such as are being daily made public.
