GORE'S F000 BILL
Committee Puts Into Substi

as -Already Adopted.
FIGHT MAY BE REOPENED
Pebate Continues on Administra
tion Bill on Floor, While Com
mittee Works out Details
f of New Measure.
Monday night, died, at the University
of Minnesota farm school hospital
shortly before midnight last night.
Death was due to heart trouble. Colo

of the National Printer-Journalist of
WASHINGTON. July 11. Consider
able progress toward a compromise on
food control legislation was made to
day in the Senate, but several impor
tant features still are to be worked out
and the whole outlook remains uncer
tain. On the floor, perfunctory debate con
tinued on the Administration bill, which
leaders virtually have agreed to aban
don, but in the agriculture committee
puch headway was made with consid
eration of Senator Gore's substitute
measure that members said final com
mittee approval was withheld only be
cause of minor details.
The committee, however, virtually
washed its hands of the troublesome
prohibition issue, voting to put into the
substitute the same regulations which
the Senate already has approved. These
would prohibit manufacture or impor
tation of distilled liquors and would
rIso provide for Government acquisi
tion of all liquor now in bond at cost
jilus 10 per cent. The latter provision,
embodied in the Smoot amendment, has
been under repeated attack both from
wets and drys since its adoption.
Whether the committee's action on
that point will be satisfactory to the
Henate or will reopen the whole pro
hibition fight is problematical.
Some changes were made in the
Fmoot provision in order to meet crit
icism regarding its constitutionality,
nd committeemen said they hoped
that would quiet its opponents.
Tomorrow the committee will meet
Again and may give formal approval
to the measure and report it as a sub
stitute for the Administration bill.
The Democratic steeling committee
else will hold a conference on the
subject in an effort to make certain
that legislation finally is put before
the Senate which will command a ma
jority when a vote is taken under
agreement on July 21.

REDMOND, Or., July 11. (Special.)
The Tet heron Butte Bull Association,
comprising W. R. Davidson, George P.
Elliott r id E. Benton, has bought a fine
Jersey bull from R. L. Badger, of Ore
gon City. The animal is kept at the
Elliott ranch. His sire la cf pure Island
blood and his dam's records of 415 and
4S5 pounds of butterfat for the second
and third year forecast the wisdom of
his new owners.
County Agent Blanchard has been
active in organizing bull associations
throughout Crook and Deschutes coun

method of building up better herds.
Denmark regards the bull association
of greater value than the cow-testing
association, though the latter is indis
pensable to progressive dairymen.

"Canning the Kaiser." a brand new
"classic." written by TJpton Sinclair to
the tune of "Marching: Through Geor

Pasadena by slow freight, reached this
city In time to feature the session of
tne department of music education of
the X. E. A. yesterday morning in the
First Unitarian Church. It had its first
"sing" before any audience or by any,
as you please, and created a profound
It was again a feature at the gen
eral meeting of the N. E. A. in the Pub
lic Auditorium last night, when A. J.
Gantvoort. teacher of public school
music and sight reading, College of
Music, Cincinnati, who sprang it as a
great surprise during the music ses
sion in the morning, led a chorus and
the audience in singing it.
Professor Gantvoort, in uncaging
Sinclair's latest "classic" from the jun
gle, aid so with great enthusiasm, but
only after explaining to the students
of the music masters present that the
soul of song as they understand it is
vastly different from that of the popu
lar throng. He was sure this bit of
"verse" would take an advance posi
tion over "Tipperary" in favor and said
it probably would be sung in France
within a week. He predicted a great
tuiure lor it and said it undoubtedly
would prove the big popular musical
nit or tne war.

Calling attention to the fact that,
during the great naval battle off Cuba
during the Spanish War it was not any
masterpiece that cheered the boys to
victory, but that instead they chose
"There'll Be a Hot Time in the Old

ine song, which Sinclair exnlalned
was inspired by a recent dispatch from
London, based upon the great feat of
our troops in coining a new phrase
-an the Kaiser" met with a hearty
reception by those present yesterday
morning and created far more interest
and enthusiasm than any of the "set"
papers, excellent as those were and
read as they were by people celebrated
throughout the world of music.
Professor Gantvoort said, before tak
ing the world into his historic surprise,
as he put it, that he had held this fea
ture back Just as long as possible and
considered that it was a big thing to
be among those who for the first time
in any place had sung this latest war
refrain. He then struck the key on
the piano, sounding the note for
"Marching Through Georgia," put his
pupils through the entire piece and
then called for volunteers to sing it at
the Auditorium last night. Some 35,
mostly women, responded instantly.
