To Unified German State Bavaria and Saxony Protest. Berlin, Jan. '20 The suggestion orig inating in the Prussian Diet that the national government sound the senti ment of the federated states on the rpiewtion of creating a unified German ftate haa aroused opposition in Bava ria and Saxony. The proposal was in troduced by the coalition bloc of ihe Prussian Diet. The press dispatch from Munich says the majority of the Bavarian people are unalterably opposed to any scheme that tends to obliterate the time hon ored prerogative of the state. In a general debate on the issue in the Bavarian Diet, the parties, with the exception of the majorities and the in dependents, opposed the scheme. The fltra left radicals, however, declared that they unconditionally favored it and. requested the Bavarian govern ment to direct their efforts in that di rect ion. - The Saxony ministry president, Herr Gradneuer, expressed the belief that the present moment is not the time for the execution of a plan which purposes to wipe out the political frontiers of the federated states. He said he be lieved that the Berlin official quarters were inadequately posted in respect to the South German opposition to the hasty centralisation of all author Itr in Berlin and that such disincli nation would serve-as check to the aspirations of Berlin.

HOLLAND WILL TAKE MORE LAND FROM SEA One of World's Greatest Engineering Projects, the Reclaiming of the Zuyder Zee, Will Be Started This Year. The Hague, Jan. 2tf.Work is to be gin this year on the reclaiming of the Zuyder Zee, one of the world's great est engineering projects, by which it is proposed to restore to Holland within 35 years what was once hers but was taken away by the storms of many centuries'. When the work is finished, not only the. original land will be restored but many thousands of acres which always have been beneath the sea will be ready for cultivation. According to pre-war estimates the entire work of reclaiming the Zuyder Zee would have cost approximately $88,800,000. but, with the increased cos of labor and materials in the past six years, it is now believed the cost will be well in excess of $ 1 25.000,000. The work will be done and paid for by the state, through special loans, and the state, Ihroiigh rental of the land claimed, expects the scheme to pay for !j i r . i i - used wiinni a lew. years auij mere after yield a handsome revenue. The total amount of land to be re claimed will be 827 square miles, which will constitute a twelfth province of Holland, capable of supporting a pop ulation of 300,000, and wherein severs cities of ancient trading fame are ex pected to be restored to com men ia importance. The engineering work is now well under way. Centuries ago, at the beginning of the Christian era when the Romans had their settlements in Holland, much of the space now occupied by the Zuy der Zes was land and the south part of the uresent sea was a lake called t levo, Northwest tempests swept the North sea, washing away the tract of dry land between the sea and the lake. One large, shallow body of water the Zuy der Zee was formed. The towns situated on its banks throve as the merchantmen came into their ports. But, as ships became larger and of deeper draft traffic was diverted . to deeper seas, leaving the once famous towns on the Zuyder's shores mere fishing villages, which they are now. while Amsterdam s commerce came to her through a canal leading direct to the North sea. Dr. A. A. Beekman of The Hague, who has devoted nearly all his life to the ideal of reclaiming the Zuyder .ce, emlained the plans to the Associated Press correspondent. He is now a mem ber of the stale council which will carry out the work. "The first thing to do," said Dr. Beekman, "is to construct a gigantic BODY WAS FOUND IN HOTEL RUINS And There Are Fears That More People Lost v Their Lives IN H0FMAN HOTEL AT DETROIT TO-DAY Heat all rooms alike Gives you a lifetime of tow-cost heating Lights Were Extinguished Almost as Soon as the Fire Started Detroit, Mich., Jan. 20.

Fire Chief Callahan expressed the opinion! that several others had been unable to escape, as all the lights in the hotel were extinguished almost aa soon as the fire started.

This will be 30 miles long, stretching from Wieringen to the Frisian coast, where the water ranges in depth from 33 to 11 feet. It will be everywhere 16 to 17 feet above the sea level. There will be a double track railway on top of the dike. Its construction will take nine years, and its cost, by pre-war esti mates, will be more than 120.000,000. "The total surface to be reclaimed is 827 square miles. There will remain a lake of 00 square miles, which will act as a reservoir during the periods when, owing to northwestern storms, the wa ters of the river Yssel and of the ca nals cannot be emptied into the North sea. The water of the lake will be let out into the North sea through five London, Jan. 26. British coal min ers are entering upon a nation-wide campaign to "educate" the public in the school of national 'nation. They are backed by the entire trade union movement. An attempt will be made to show that state ownership and co operative management of mines would benefit the miner, the consumer and the public treasury. I Ins propaganda is to be developed with such intensity as to force the gov ernment to give a definite "yes" or "no" answer to the question. Then it will depend upon the tenacity with which the t wo sides stand by their guns as to whether a general eloofoion will lie fought out with nationalization as the issue. Aside from the dispute between rail way men and the government wages, prospects of industrial peace in Great Britain are regarded by the govern ment and the trade unionists as bright er than at any time since the conclu sion of the war. Government and labor leaders fore cast a period of serenity and increased production for which they have long pleaded as the first essential in re-establishing the country on a firm eco nomic basis. .

" American business men should lie alive to the new possibilities of world trade which have opened up since the signing of the armistice, and especially to the enterprise which is being shown by some of the larger countries of Eu rope in venturing out for markets lit erally to the ends of the earth. Take for example the remarkable undertak ing which has just been launched bv Great Britain through her department of overseas trade under the lead of Sir Hamar- fireonwood. That organization aims to offset what it calls "the fetish of German cheapness," to compete more efficiently with the Germans in the matter of advertising, and, while meet ing home needs, to respond adequately to the demands which improved stand ards of living are bringing in "from every country in the world, even from the untold millions of the Oriental and African peoples." For the realization of these aims the department has planned a series of traveling exhibitions for publicity pur poses, each to be in charge of one of its nffWra. and to he accomnanlod hv sales representatives of the participating New IDEAL-Areola Radiator-Boiler The IDEAL-Arcola is one of the world's newest and greatest of inventions.

Using Tougher Cuts of Meat How manv times hsve e besrd our contemporary home managers bemoan the fact that there were only four kinds of meat animals from which to choose! This idea of lack of variety in fresh meats is all because of the un sound and uninteresting habit of buy ing the same cuts over and over a pun. There are. with the sKirt stean ana hanging tenderloin. 14 distinct cuts of beef, each responding to a particular kind of cookery and offering an oppor tunity for distinctive seasoning, say Jean 'Prescott Adams in the Springfield Republican. In addition there are even several different cut to many of these U regular cuts of meat there are sev eral styles of steaks, but how many have used the delicious flank ateak, a lod steak, a skirt steak or a chuck steak We want lower prices oa our tender meats, but every honsewite witn a goodly epense account inits that a steer provide loins and prime ribs. We sdmit we are sensisble in the njajrity of things but have yet to prove that we do realite that such meat animal have not been created. For every l"ia of beef there are 13 other rut besides the extra portions sik h aa fceart, liver, kid ney, brain, etc. Let one of our ecoeouK-aiiv M'n4 campaigns against old 11. (.. L., be a resolution to use in ita regular order every cut of meat on a side of beef be fore repeating on a cut. One of the extra meat portions could well be every third beef purchase. By equalizing the demand we would automatically equal ire the price the cuts. Nutritive Values. From Maine to California, women purchase meat in practically the aame way. Women have believed for years, as do some even now, that the more expensive and most tender cuts of meat must naturally be most nutritious and that the cheaper and tougher cuts are to be discarded or left with the butcher to dispose of, not realizing if they pur chase only the tender ruts, he must keep the prices high eliough to cover the loss on what isn't sold. We are grateful that our leading dietitians of to-day are teaching the women that the tougher cuts of meat are exactly as nutritious as the more tender, if not more so, because the blood is drawn to the parts in which the muscle", are con stantly used. In a beef animal of 500 pounds about 75 pounds are tender meat. The loin in the hind quarter is composed of sirloin, porterhouse and single uteaka and the prime ribs of the fore quarter. These two commercial cuts being the most tender are most in demand and every butcher, no matter what the locality, will tell yon he has no difficulty in disposing of these cuts, but the diffi culty lies in selling tho cheaper cute as well as the extra meat portions. In our campaign of sound meat buy ing we could start with the neck of beef, always buying I,'. S. government inspected meats. The average neck of beef weighs some 12 pounds, of which nearly four pounds are bone, sinew, etc., leaving a little over eight pounds as entirely edible meat. At the central marked price of 10 rents a pound for meat this gives us wholesome, fla" vory beef with no waste at 13 ceuts a pound. The neck is perhaps the most flavory cut of beef because of the constant ro. building of the tissue. It has the long cell and thick connective ti!iue struc ture that requires long, moist cooking. Buy the quantity needed for your fam ily two or two and one-half pounds for a family of five. When putting it to rook be sure to scar the fatty juices in first. When the searing is to be done by aauteing in a pan of hot fat, be sure to turn the meat so that every side ia seared, then cover with boiling water, add season ing and let simmer. If the method of immersing in boiling water is used be sure the water is boiling, immerse tho meat and let boil briskly for 10 min utes, reduce the heat, add seasoning, salt, pepper, celery salt, onion juice, and let siqimer until don. Cut the meat from the bone. Dorothy Dexter. Presidential Timber film -'
