"There Is a. huge output to be had

Lloyd's News, also demanding great

"The raiders yesterday came at their
leisure and bombed at their leisure.
Their flight over London was so slow
that It looked like a parade. They
seemed to despise our defenses."

WASHINGTON. July 8. Government
control of American exports, authorized
in a provision of the espionage act, was
ordered put Into operation July 15 by
President Wilson tonight with the Issu
ance of a proclamation requiring the
licensing of shipments to all countries
of the most Important export commodi
ties. In a statement accompanying the
proclamation the President declared
the Government's policy will be, first,
to give consideration to American
needs: next, to meet, as far as possible,
the requirements of the allies, and,
lastly, to supply the neutral countries
wherever practicable. It is made clear
that every effort will bs made to see
that no supplies reach the central
The commodities named In the list
put under control are coal, coke, fuel,
oils, kerosene and gasoline, including
DunKers; rood grains, flour and meat.
fodder and feeds, meats and fats, nler
iron, steel Diiiets. snip plates and struc
tural shapes, scrap iron and scrap steel,
ferro manganese, fertilizers, arms, am
munition and explosives.
ine Inclusion of foodstuffs In the
proclamation lends color to state
ments that the Administration is con
sidering the advisability of a complete
embargo for 60 days on all food ship
ments to give tne country time to as
certain the amount of its supplies, and
to give allied and neutral countries an
opportunity to present a full pro
gramme of their requirements.
Embargo Is Urged.
The President, in his statement, said
the Government was trying first to
ameliorate present food conditions and
conditions that are expected to arise
between now and the next harvest.
Many officials, alarmed at the wheat
shortage and the heavy drain the allies
and neutrals are making on every kind
oi American looa supplies, are urging
an immediate emoargo on foodstuffs.
Through control of coal anri fuels
the Government intends to take a firm
gasp on shipping. An arrangement
under negotiation will give the Amerl
can and British governments control
not only of all allied tonnage but of
neutral vessels as well. Ships now on
runs not regarded as necessary to a
successful conduct of the war will be
forced into trades considered more es'
s-ential and vessels now held in port
through rear or submarine attack will
be required to go Into service.
Shortage of Steel Feared.
Control of iron and steel was made
necessary by war demands on the iron
and steel Industries. A shortage of
steel in this country Is threatened be
cause of the large amount that is be
ing diverted to munitions manufacture
and the construction of the Government
merchant fleet. Japan's heavy pur
chases of steel plates for merchant
shipbuilding made necessary that plates
be put under control. At the same
time this action gives the Government
a weapon with which to force Japanese
tonnage into the trans-Atlantic trades.
Specific regulations govering food
exports and shipments of other com
modities named in today's list are ex
pected to be issued by the President in
a few days.
Food Programme Drafted.
Even If a complete embargo is not
placed on food exports for a time It is
known many restrictions will be made.
The exports council, comprising three
Cabinet members and the Food Admin
istrator, are drawing up a programme
to be submitted to the President imme
One argument advanced by advocates
of a complete embargo on food ship
ments is that the neutral countries and
the allies have presented entirely dif
ferent statements regarding the amount
of foodstuffs going from the neutral
countries into Germany. It is argued
also that the neutrals cannot be treated
all alike, as varying conditions obtain
in Holland and in the Scandinavian
countries. The President declares in
his statement that this Government has
no desire to do any injustice to neutral
countries and intends to co-operate
with them in adding to their necessary
