Washin^l'in^— [Spi-iial Cni-rpppi nd- enr-e.l — Pretty nearly every phttsc of the war situation has occupied ila- at- tention of President Wilson, his cabi- net and all other officials now hi Wash- ington during the pa'st week. Om- stantling aniens these \ere: Prppaialkms for the conferences with representatives of the entente allies, at which it will be de. hied what i-iurt the United States will play in bringing about the defeat of Germany. Consideration of the bill providing for the drafting of men into the Unit- ed States army and navy. The proposal to send help to Russia— men, money and munitions. It has been held that if the Stars and Stripes are flyinsi on the eastern front there will be little danger of Russia quitting and making a separate peace with Ger- many. Consideration of the spy bill, in which drastic regulations concerning the actions of alien enemies appear. Discussion of the proposal to make the United States bone dry for the duration of the war. In Wake of Draft Bill. Here is what will happen when the draft bill becomes a law: First.—The president will designate by proclamation a day of registration, the voting precinct being used as the smallest unit for enrollment. The gov- ernors of the various states will be asked to have the sheriffs of the coun- ties appoint registers to take the names of all ma<les between the ages of nineteen and tweuty-five. Those who refuse to enroll will be arrested. Second.—The state officers will ex- empt from military service \persons engaged In industries, including agri- cultural, found to be necessary to the maintenance of the military establish- ment or the effective operation of the military forces or the maintenance of national interests daring the emergen- cy.\ Third.—Those not exempted will be reported to the war department, which will make ftirtber exemptions. Fourth.—It is estimated that by Aug. 1 the OOO.IWI men desired will be in training camps. In the meantime the government must provide equipment for the recruits. Fifth.—It is estimated that the reg- istration will result in an enrollment of 7,000.000.. and about 40 per cent of this number will be weeded out on ac- count of physical disabilities. The 500,000 to be selected from the remain- ing CO per cent will be chosen by lot. Prohibition Regulations. Nation wide prohibition during the period of the war is provided for in a bill introduced by Congressman How- ard of Georgia. The medical board of the Council of National Defense Recommended to the council that war prohibition be adopted aa a step necessary to effective prepar- edness. It is known that the majority of the council are personally in favor of pre- venting the manufacture of liquor as long as we are engaged in war, al- though many of them are not ordinari- ly technically known as prohibition- ists. The n«edical board was informed, however, that the Council of National Defense believed it would be exceeding its power should it adopt such a meas- ure and said that any action taken would have to come either from the president or congress. There are constitutional difficulties which will have to be solved before the United States, follows the example which has been set for It by other countries now in the war. The Situation In New Republic That the Russian situation is caus- ing a good deal of concern in official and diplomatic circles is frankly con- ceded. While no importance is at- tached to the cabled report that Ger- many and Russia are paving the way for negotiating an armistice prelimina- ry to (be consideration of peace terms, there is known to exist great uneasi- ness as to the solidarity of the new Russian democratic enterprise. Ambassador B'rancis has not report ed any developments in the situation at Peti-ograd that Justify credence of the report that the temporary govern- ment is brrmldMg down. It is admitted that the most important consideration confronting the United States and her Burouej)ji ulliwj is r lo defeat Oci-inun lttrriRiie ior a lei-uown in military op- erations. Continue Business, Coffin Demands. The United States is threatened with \a disastrous stampede of misguided patriotism,\ declared Howard B. Cof- lin, member of the advisory commission of the Council of National Defense, who has returned from the west. In a formal statement Mr. Coffin said in part: \Because of an impending and pos- sible shortage of foodstuffs we have hysterical demands for economy In ev- ery line of human endeavor. Waste 1* Z.8C1, out an undiscrimiuating e.-onom.v 13 WlU-Ci. \Some states and municipalities are stopping road building and other pub- lic work. Cotieral business is being slowed down because of the emotional j response of the trading public to these misguided campaigns for e.onomy. So - savings are being withdrawn from the , banks, reports show that some people I have begun to hoard food supplies, and I thousands of workers are being thrown I needlessly out of employment. All this I is wrong. I \Unemployment and closed factories, ' brought about by fitful and ill advised J campaigns for public and private econ- omy, will prove a veritable foundation of quicksand for the serious work we have at hand. \It is true the president has said ! 'this is a time to correct our habits of wastefulness.' Certainly, but the key- note of bis message to the people was this paragraph: \ 'It is evident to every thinking man that our industries, on the farm, in the shipyards, in the mines, in the facto- ries, must be made more prolific and more efficient.' \We need prosperity in wartime even more than when we are at peace Business depressions always are bad, but doubly so when we have a fight on our hands. The declaration of war can have no real evil effect on busi- ness. What bad effects are apparent are purely psychological and largely of our own foolish making. For our mar- kets are the same in April as they were in March. We need more busi- ness, not less. There is real danger in hysteria. Indiscriminate economy «-!.*.---••.;?. Kr, rte••-..-..!< Now is the time to Open S>i.r rivi-uirnr . May Have Food Dictator. Legislation to give the government a firm grasp 011 food control has been introduced in congress. Power is asked for the government not only to supervise production, but to deal with distribution, to insure a fair supply of food to every part of the country at reasonable prices. De- tails of the administration's plan have not become known, but it is believed actual price fixing may have a place In laws to be asked and that authority will be requested to establish a virtual food dictatorship if that becomes nec- essary. As outlined by Mr. Houston, the de- partment of agriculture's plans for meeting the food problem contemplate a central organization In the depart- ment, with state and county branches. A food committee of the Council of National Defense, which will be head- ed by Herbert C. Hoover, will work with the department. Many Patriotic Offers. From all parts of the country offers of services of material assistance to the government are coming to the na- tion's leading men. A wonderful spir- it of unselfish loyalty is bringing to Washington swarms of millionaires, captains of industry and master execu- tives, all anxious to do something to aid the r.2.ii — •j.ue oest expert, en munitions :rom ,\!. P. iiiorgan 3 omce, trained in pur- chases for the allies, is serving the Na- tional Council of Defense in gathering America's supplies. A remarkable offer by a prominent oil company has become known. The question having arisen whether the government could be assured of ade- quate supplies of oil, an emissary call- ed on the president of the company to make inquiries. He is quoted as re- plying: \There are just three conditions in- volved—how much, when and where the government want its oil. Let us know that and we will attend to cue Lt**w As to price, the company is under- stood to have left that to the govern ment to determine. O, HOWARD E. COFFIN.
