LONDON", March 26. Herbert C
Hoover, chairman of the American
Commission for Relief in Belgium, who
returned to London from Paris today,
announced that tiie negotiations for
feeding 2,500,000 French civilians who
are behind the German lines have been
completed. The arrangements were
settled between Mr. Hoover and French
delegates from the north, whom the
Germans permitted to -Journey to Fans

mission has been reluctantly extending
the distribution of relief farther and
farther southward from the Belgian
frontier Into France and for the past
month has been feeding over 500.000
French persons between Maubeuge and
Supplies Already Bought.
In anticipation that arrangements
would be made which would meet with
the approval of all parties, the Com
mission already had bought additional
supplies. These are now arriving in
Rotterdam, and the people of Lille,
Cambral and other cities in this part
of France will be relieved within the
next few days. The condition of these
people, chiefly women and children, is
desperate. Old ase and Infant mor
tality has Increased with extraordinary
rapidity under the very restricted sup
ply and the coarse character of the
"The French government," said Mr.
Hoover, "was unable to come to the
assistance of these unfortunate people,
so the commission arranged a series of
banking credits pn behalf of the vari
ous communal authorities which are
cut off from the rest of the country ty
the German army.
Sliaimiun Ration Estimated.
The French delegates estimate that.
In addition to such stores as still re
main, they can keep their people alive
on a ration of six and one-half ounces
of flour, one ounce of beans, one ounce
of rice and one ounce of bread a day,
together with a sufficient supply of
condensed milk and cocoa for extreme
ly young children.
"The total cost is estimated at from
$2,500,009 to 13.000,000 a month, and
the commission is now in a position to
say that It can see its waj- clear to
carry on this work for the next two
months. The work of distribution in
Northern France will be accomplished
by an extension of the organization al
ready existing In Belgium.
"The commission is establishing four
principal warehouses at provincial
renters, from which the foodstuffs will
be distributed to arrondissement ware
houses and the system operated as in
Belgium, the warehouses and transpor
tation being under the supervision and
rontrol of American members of the
commission and the financial measures
under a French committee.
Appeal to World Nat Intended.
"The German government has given

the work and there is no lack of ben
evolence among the rrencn in ineir
desire to assist their own people. The
commission does not intend to appeal
lo the world for help in this French
problem, but feels confident that it
ran carry the load by means of the
machinery which has just been set up.
"The direction of the whole organiza
tion in Belgium and France remains
under the control of Thomas Connell.
former manager of the Brussels-street
railway. Ginord Pinchot has Joined
the commission as a member and will
take charge of on of the sections
around Lille. With tho conclusion of
this arrangement regarding Franca,
between 900,000 and 1,000,000 persons
will become dependent on the Ameri
enn commission for their daily bread."

E LAW IS IN EFFECT
HOW TO EXFOBCE ORDI.VAXCK GOV.
' ERXJNG WORKDKJf FIZZLE.
Scale of Pay Kn.ua I to City's la Pro.
vlded for Contracts and Muat
Portland's new minimum wage and
eight-hour day ordinance governing
all workmen on municipal contracts
went Into effect yesterday without the
officials who are to enforce it knowing
how it is to be enforced. A number
of points in regard to the operation of
the measure are uncertain and proba
bly will remain so until City Attorney
LaRoche completes an opinion.
The ordinance requires the insertion
in every municipal contract of a pro
vision to the effect that the contracter
will pay the workmen employed the
same scale of wages as is paid by the
City of Portland for similar work. The
principal change this will make is
raising the scale of wages of laborers
from 13. 25 and 82.50 to $3 a day and
the increasing of the wages of some
classes of skilled laborers.
It reouiros also that the eight-hour
day shall be observed and that con
tractors shall give preference in all
work to local workmen. In the event
that outside labor (s employed the city
must be notihed and the Council has
the option of canceling tha contract.
Contractors and city officials are
considerably puzzled over the wage
part of the measure. It provides that
the scale of wages in effect at the time
the contract is entered into shall pre
vail during tho life of the contract. It
is a serious question when the contract
is entered into under the eity's plan.
In the case of sewer and street im
provement contracts bids sometimes
are submitted weeks before the eon
tract Is signed. Contractors say it is
unfair to require theni to bid on work
when the Council has the right without,
notice after the bid has been submitted
to change the scale of wages. The con
tractor in submitting bids is forced to
accept the contract if it IS given him
by the Council.

MOVIE AUTHORITY HERE
Orrin G. Cocks Approves Portland
Plan of Censorship,
"Cpncentrated authority in the cen
soring of motion pictures is a good
idea," said Orrin G. Cocks, advisory
secretary to the National Board of Cen
sorship of New York, who arrived in
Portland Thursday. "The method of
having a group of seven people rep
resenting public opinion is a wise way
to handle the situation, and it ia more
apt to be bandied satisfactorily in this
way than in any other. The plan of
San Francisco, Los Angeles. Memphis
and other cities I - have visited, where
tho authority is concentrated in only
two or three people, is not wise, in my
opinion. I am not in favor of the Chi
cago system, where ten paid censors
under civil service censor the films,
especially when the censors are not
representative. The censors -are apt
to allow themselves to become narrow.
They cater to the esthetic tastes of the
'better class, forgetting that the tired
workingman comes to the motion-picture
show for reaction and thrills."
Mr. Cocks declared that any board
of censors which is active and perma
nent must represent all the people. He
said that the more the censors know
of the psychology of the mass of the
people, the more apt they are to be
liberal in the censoring of films.
He said of the National Board: "The
National Board of Censors aims to es
tablish a moral minimum for the whole
country. Each city knowo and under
stands its own needs the best and
therefore should have tha right to use
its own judgment in deciding what is
best for the public"
NUMBER IN HITED STATES IS
PLACED AT 38,708,141.
Statistic Compiled for 1914 Show In.
crease Over 1913 of 763,078.
NEW YORK. March 17. The grand to
tal of membership in all religious bodies
of the United States is 38,708,141.
These figures were given out recently
by the Federal Council of the Churches
of Christ in America, which has Just
finished its compilation of statistics for
the year lull.
The figures show an increase over
the 191S total of 763,07. The new
members added during the year were
enough to balance all losses by death
or any other cause and to run ahead
of old records by 750,000. This is an
average increase of 1 per cent for each
organization. Christian or non-Christian.
The tables prepared by Dr. H. K.
Carroll, and issued by tho council show
the distribution itemized below. Where
a church has divided, as in the case
of Northern and Southern Methodists,
all divisions of the original organiza
tion are included:
Baptists gained 132,125; Eastern
orthodox churches, 36,500; the Roman
Catholic Church, 136,850; the Lutherans,
66,248; the German Evangelical Synod,
representing the State Church of Prus
sia. 29.315; the Methodists, 231,460; the
Presbyterians, 66,019; the Protestant
Episcopal Church, 26,641.
The Protestant Episcopal Church
has crossed the 1,000,000 line, having
gained 86,468 since 1910, and more than
300.600 since 1900.
The Roman Catholic Church has
gajned nearly 1,250,000 since 1910 and
more than 5,500,000 since 1900.
The Methodist Episcopal Church, the
second largest .denomination, has
gained nearly 700,000 since 1900.
The 30 churches, constituting the
Federal Council of the Churches of
Christ in America, report, as will be
seen, nearly 17,500,000 members, some
what less than half of the aggregate
for all denominations, with 103,000
ministers and nearly 139,000 churches.
These bodies have a net increase of
more than 500,000 members, or more
than two-thirds of the entire increase
of all bodies.
Nine denominations have 1.000,000
and upward Roman Catholic, 13,794,
637; Methodist Episcopal, 3.603,265;
Southern Baptist, 2.692,217; National
Baptist (colored), 2,018,868: Methodist
Episcopal, South, 2,005,707; Presby
terian. Northern 1.442.498: Disciples of
Christ, 1,363,163; Northern Baptist
Convention. 1.23S.S23: Protestant Epis
copal, 1,015,238. These denominations
aggregate over 29,000.000 members, or
more than threa-fourths of the entire
aggregate of the 170 religious bodies.
Effeets of the war on church mem
bership through lessened immigration
were probably quite small, as only the
last five months of the year were in
volved. The immigration of men to
take part in the conflict would not
be a very large factor for the same
reason. The German bodies Lutheran,
Reformed and the representative of tha
Prussian State Church al show nn,
usual gains for 19l4.
The total increase-of ministers was
3212. which is unusually larire. while
the total Increase of churches was 1441,
which is unusually small.
