TWO CENTS—DELIVERED 12c A WEEK EW FOOD UW TO HIT GREEDY L Poor Alone Must Not Be Made to Bear Burden of Conserving. COMPULSORY LESS DAYS ARE URGED Says Sugar Distribution Most Be Controlled By U. S. Washington, D. C, Jan. 29—The burden of food saving must be placed OB tha "luxurious and greedy," and not upon the poor. This must be the sis of absolutely necessary new con- vatlon and food saving legislation, erbert C. Hoover today announced aa hla position In a letter written (representative Sydney Anderson of esota, who had proposed new food legislation. Tbe Anderson proposal of legislation. Mr. Hoover says. does not go far enough. The legislation that Is to come through the extension of the Lever act, Mr. Hoover ■aid. must Include: Control of distribution in order that all classes and localities shall fare alike and that unnecessary consumption ahall bo prevented. Control .of use of foodstuffs in food manufactures wtth a view to limiting the less essential manufactures. Control of commodities critically necessary for the production and preservation of food stuffs ln order to prevent great losses. . In addition, Mr. Hoover endorses the following sections of the Anderson biU: Comft-sory wheatless or other "leaa day*, weekly. 1 rohlbltlng use of foodstuffs in nonfood producta. Limitation of food served ln public eating places. Declaring that 30 per cent of . all food is wasted Mr. Hoover said that conservation measures "must not draw savings from that class to which economy and moderate use ls a dally necessity." ThJ shortage in sugar will not exceed 10 per cent next year. That ehould be made up, Mr. Hoover said, ugh reduction of candy, and sweet nk manufactures by at least 20 per it Sugar distribution also must be ontrolled, he said, to keep lt from greedy hands." Use of ammonia also must be reduced. There is today, an absolute shortage of 6<M)00.000 pounds ot this product in sight. To meet this shortage Hoover urged that use of ammonia be prohibited for maintenance of sfc»M"g rinks and alcoholic drinks, sold storage establishments, household ammonia, and the like. Unless the ammonia shortage is met, he said, the danger to the military establishment will he great as the producUon of munitions must not be reduced. CONCERT UT MILE BBUNCHJINCE HALL .

Two Groups of German Planes Drop Bombs; Raiders Repulsed London, England, Jan. 29.—Two groups of German airplanes attempted to attack London last night and early- today, but only five of lhe machines were able to break through the de fenses of the city. An official statement Issued at noon by Viscount French, commander-in- chief of the home defenses, said one of the airplanes of the first group was shot down in Essex and three occupants burned to death. Four machines of the flrst contingent of hostile aircraft reached the city and dropped bombs but only one member of the second group was able to get this far. Viscount French stated that tbe raids indicated that groups of the raiders in parallel forces had crossed Kent and another had passed over Essex. Two British scouts attacked the flrst Contingent over Essex at a height of 10.000 feet. The German machine that was shot down there, fell In flames. German aircraft bombed London early today for the second thne within four hours. The raiding planes were savagely attacked by British airmen and by high angle batteries and one of the machines In the flrst attacking squadron was shot down in Essex while trying to make Its way to this city. Viscount French, commander-in- chief of the home defenses, announced that the flrst squadron was sighted over tbe Essex and Kentish coasts, about 8 o'clock and the word was Immediately flashed to London. British airmen swooped skyward to Intercept tbe enemy and the artillerymen of the high angle batteries began to comb the sky with their searchlights. Some of the hostile machines were turned back, but others succeeded in reaching London and shortly after 9 o'clock the thunder of the guns in the London suburbs announced that the raiders bad been sighted. Some bombs were dropped. The people began scurrying to cover as soon as the alarm was sounded many taking refuge ln the subway, and others ln the government built bomb proof. Addreas Is Not Halted The Royal Geographical society was holding a meeting, presided over by General Smuts, when announcement of the raid was made. The suggestion was made that the members take refuge ln the basement of tbe building, but there were loud cries of protest. While the thunder of the anti-aircraft guns echoed In the ears of the audience General Smuts calmly went on with his address and the bursts of applause showed tbat he was getting undivided attention. The second squadron of hostile machines made Its appearance over the capital shortly before 1 o'clock. MEN 21 SINGE ES C-owder Says They Would Prevent Calling Deferred Classifications.

FORCES BEATEN IN I CLOSE VOTE Committee Favors Turning Roads Back Year After War Ends. VOTE 7 TO 6 ON THE AMENDMENT Senator Pomerene Casts Ballot Against Plan of Administration. Washington, D. C, Jan. 29.—The administration program received a setback this afternoon when tbe senate interstate commerce committee voted 7 to 6 to limit the period of governmental control of the railroads to one year after the end of the war. The amendment agreed to by the committee is a modification of the proposal submitted by Senator Watson of Indiana for the frankly avowed purpose of forestalling permanent government control. Senator Watson's amendment provided for the termination of governmental control six months after the war. The majority of the committee took the position that this would allow Insufficient Ume for the readjustments incident to the return of the roads to prevent operation and extend the time to one year. The action of the committee was in direct opposition to the desire of Secretary McAdoo. director general of the roads. Mr. McAdoo urged the question of termination government control be left open for decision of congress after the end of the war, and suggested it might not be advisable to return the railroads to private ownership until three years after peace is proclaimed. Three democratic senators voted for the proposal to limit the government operation. They were Senator Pomerene of Ohio, enator Underwood of labama, and Senator Smith of South Carolina, chairman. One, Senator Poindexter, of Washington, voted against the amendment. With this question disposed of, the committee expeWed to turn next to the question of compensation for the use of the railroads. Much controversy appeared certain before the bill would be ready for reporting to the senate. 14 STEAMBOATS IRE SWEPT DOWN 01 RIVER AS ICE GORGES BREAKNEAR PADUGAH River Blocked With Ice Floes — Floods Hit Kentucky Cities—Federal Weather Bureau Issues Warnings of the Breaking Up of the Ice in the Ohio River From the Mouth of the Kanawha to Below the Mouth of tho Big Sandy—Foot of Water in the Streets of Pike ville, Ky.—Cincinnati Prepares for the Worst. _^ Paducah, Ky., Jan. 29.—Fourteen steamboats were swept down the Ohio river today when huge ice gorges above Paducah broke and the fields of Ice caught tbe vessels aud tore them from tbelr moorings. Many of the boats swept past this city ln the grasp of ice floes, and residents of this city report hearing cries from the vessels. Reports from Metropolis, Ills., say that the boats passed there in bad shape. Two of them were reported jammed in the ice and standing on edge. Among the boats swept away were packets of the Eagle line and the Cumberland and Tennessee river line. See Increase of Rates Washington, D. C, Jan. 29.—The government will be forced to raise railroad rates, Judge Samuel Cowan, representing southwestern shippers organizations told the house commerce committee today, if the compensation plan proposed in the administration bill is not radically changed. "Present rates are insufficient to meet the proposed guarantees," he said. "If congress goes farther and gives the railroads all they are asking, the natiou will face a huge deficit" Cowan was answered by Interstate Commerce Commissioner Anderson, author of the administration bill, who declared that "the best information we can get Is that the compensation plan will give the railroads 1100,000.- 000 less than they earned in 1916 and 1917. U. S. Officials Worried. Washington, D. C, Jan. 29.—Serloua appprehension was felt in Washington today over the danger of disastrous floods in many parts of tbe country in case of a sudden and general thaj-y. On account of the almost unprecedented character of the winter it wa**s feared that heavy loss and interruption to railroad traffic is almost Inevitable when warmer weather comes, especially if lt comes suddenly. Army engineers the food and fuel administrations, and tbe railroad authorities were watching with anxiou. eye all areas subject to Inundation. They were ready to take all poss1- ble measures to combat flood conditions, but so much snow has fallen ln some parts of the country thet little could be done In an effective way to prevent serious damage. Word reached Washington todav that the breaking of Ice gorges in th * Ohio river and its tributaries was beginning to cause havoc in the cities and towne-tn that _rttey. Northern Kentucky was fearful of the result* of a heavy rain which set in yesterday and continued last night. The weather bureau issued warnings of the breaking up of ice in the Ohio river from the mouth of the Kanawha to below the mouth of the Big Sandy. It was stated that oa account of thc prospect of colder weather in the Ohio Valley during the net two days, a general breakup was not expected, Foot of Watsr In Streets. Lexington, Ky., Jan. 29.—Over a foot of water stands in the business section of Pikevllle, today, and the Big Sandy river there is higher than ever before. Heavy floes of ice are being brought down from the mountain districts by the swollen rivers causing ice gorges in the Ohio river to break. Railroad washouts are reported from many sections of the .state, and much damage has been caused by high waters in the Kanawha territory where a new river is reported ln process of formation. Fully a score of towns throughout the state are partly flooded today, with tbe waters still rising but no loss of life has been reported. Floods in eastern Kentucky today threatened to cut off the supply of gas for LoulsvlUe and many other towns, which ls pumped from West Virginia. The high waters may Inundate the pipes carrying gas from the fields. Ice Floes Jam Ohio. Louisville, Ky., Jan. 29.- The Ohio river opposite Louisville today is s mass of ice floes and gorges with tributary streams pouring in floods of icp and water. The Kentucky and the Big Sandy rivers are choked with ice and several towns In upper Kentucky are partly flooded. Cincinnati Prepares for Worst. Cincinnati, ().. Jan. 29.—Epoetin* a break in the ice-gorged Ohio river at this point within the next 24 hours, rivermen have been hard at work preparing for Ihe crash. Steam Is kept up on all shipping in this harbor, roughly estimated at a million dollars in value, and heroic efforts will be made to prevent what seems almost certain heavy damages to Icebound craft.

' FOR REDUCED PRICES Ott TALKING MACHINES, RECORDS, PIANOS AND PLATER PIANOS, BEE THE NATIONAL MUSIC GO'S. AO. ON PAGE .. Washington, D. C, Jan. 29 —Official and diplomatic Washington today was a hotbed of rumors that President Wilson was abopt to make reply to Austrian suggestions that an Immediate frank discussion of war aims would result ln an early peace. The White House, however, was silent on the subject. It was pointed out that, it he "ran true to form," he could be expected to let it be known that he had something additional to say on the International situation about an hour before he actually said it. It was generally felt, however, that conditions were making towards some additional statement from the president ln the near future dealing with world democracy. The pan-German rage against the report that Count Czernin bad sent a copy of Ills address to the president through a neutral channel, growth of the Independent peace sentiment ln Austria, the admitted increase of what, for want of a better name, Is termed Bolshevik sentiment in many countries where the doctrine of a louder voice for the worker in the government ia on Increase, and the Increasingly dangerous economic pressure all over Europe all pressed a situation which diplomats and politicians here have chosen to term psychological. And all of the president's former utterances have been so timed that they have had a reassuring effect upon Germany's enemies and a correspondingly demoralizing effect upon the political structure ln the central empires. The President has been secluded ln the Whjte House since last Friday. He was first sent to his study by a severe cold which caused Dr. Cary Grayson to place a taboo on all work in the executive offices. But as inaction palls on tbe chief executive, be called on the state department for its late reports covering the European political situation. This data included the latest accounts * received from American diplomatic officials ln Russia, Scandinavian countries, Holland, Spain and Swltserland showing the exact stato of public opinion ln Oermany and Austria-Hungary. While tho president was considering this data. ____^_^_^_.,___.._.-„J_.. ____..,. bis confidential friend ahd adviser. Col. E. M. House, arrived quietly in the city. The United States has done everything lt can to hearten the German liberals in every way. and on every occasion. One result was the recent attack of Herr Scheldemann, the German socialist leader, on the Von Hertling program. If it is learned that another appeal to liberalism in the central powers would increase tho anti-military sentiment in Germany, officials believe the president will not hesitate to make it. There is no use, these officials say, of expecting any results that would make for peaee from the present German military control. And the German liberal movement siill is too weak to force any cone s.-ions that would iban*;e the situation Hut encouragement of the weak liberal element coupled as It must be with pressure from Austria, where peace demands ure rampant, ls declared to be the duty today of all the entente but more i specially of the United States. Therefore, it will not surprise officialdom or diplomatic leaders hern should the president make a new move soon along this line. How lie would do it. und when, lie alone ean say. But it may eome with the reassembling in Paris of the supreme war council where Premier Lloyd- George, Viscount Mlllner. Preni'-^r Orlando, of Italy, and General Allelti now are. Any new declaration by the entente or the President, officials say, will not change America's war alms. They remain as outlined by the President, and war preparations will continue to be hurried. The expected new developments simply would have as their object Increased support for world liberalism with the view that It would force the only change In the German government that would make possible an early end of the war. And until that change comes, the war will be pushed with all possible vigor by the United States and Its allies. rx>AL Plenty of It at tbe S. L. Orant mine. For further Information call E. L.
