Immediate Distribution Is Pur
pose of Fight.
Democrats Vainly Endeavor to Block
7.rty Report Censuring War
Department's Delay.
WASHINGTON. July 25. Plans of
democratic members of the house -war
investigating committee to attempt im
peachment of the majority committee
report censurine: the war department
for delaying sale of surplus food-s-.
tuffs and asking adoption of a policy
of immediate distribution were blocked
today by republican committeemen.
By a strict party vote, the democrats
request for a reopening of hearings on
the food stocks were denied. The demo- ,
cratic members had announced they
would attempt to disprove statements
contained in the report. Simultaneous
with their failure and the decison by
the republican members that a rule be
asked for immediate house considera
tion of the resolution calling for a
policy of sale at once to the consum
ing public, th democrats decided to
submit a minority report, challenging
the statements of the republicans.
Sales to Con Hum era Wanted.
Because of prospective argument of
democrats that a change in policy of
sale would result in the foodstuffs fall
ing into the hands of speculators,
the republican committeemen today
amended their resolution so as to -request
the ales to be made directly to
the consumers by the government.
Final committee action today fol
lowed a long executive session, at
which the democratic members in ask
ing the reopening of hearings sub
mitted a list of additional witnesses,
including Secretary Baker and other
war department officials. Voted down,
the democrats deqided. to include state
r.ients of the suggested witnesses in
their minority report. Conferences
had previously been field by the dem
acratic members headed by Represent
ative Flood. Virginia, with several
war department officials, including
Secretary Baker, who- denied it was
bin policy "to withhold . the foodstuffs
from the domestic market and to pro
tect the interests from which these
products had been purchased," as
charged in the majority report.
Democratic Policy Criticised.
Chairman Graham, after the com
mittee meeting, asserted that such a
policy existed, and that subsequent re
ports on other subjects would be made
by the committee to prove the policy's
application to various commodities as
well as food. He asserted that "the
.same private control of the govern
ment continues as was exercised by
the council of national defense in fram
ing war policies."
Mr. Flood's conference with war de
partment officials today led him to
challenge the majority report in a let
ter which was concurred in by the
other democrats In asking a reopening
of hearings. The latter asserted the
report's statement that no surplus of
foodstuff was declared for six month
was erroneous, for there had been some
sales before May. It also challenged
the statement that the food was- per
mitted to deteriorate during this time.
Star in "Chin Chin" at Heilig Yearns for Ware-Tossed Shores "Where
Every Prospect Pleases and Only Man Is Vile."
WALTER WILLS, who. with Roy
Binder, is ,Chin-Chinning at the
Heilig-, says if he could make a
wish on Aladdin's magic lamp he'd wish
for a boat and an open sea ind a long,
long voyage, with some man pal, touch
ing only occasionally at shores "where
every prospect pleases and only man Is
vile." ,
Roy Binder, pressed to make a wish,
said he'd let Mr. Wills do his wishing
for him. and then told a story illustrat
ive of his attitude.
"A little darkey boy was making
wishes. 'Wisht I had a milium water
melons, an' a milium bicycles, an a
milium pieces o' pie, an' a milium fire
crackers an a milium autymobiles,' and
so on down a lengthy list of desirables
dear to a youngster's imagination. His
darky pal listened enviously as the
treasures accumulated and finally
asked, 'WouldJ'a give me one of yer
autymobiles?' 'Nix,' said his friend. 'Or
a watermelon r 'Nary a one,' replied
his friend. 'Or a piece of yer fried
chickenr "Nopesy, said the other. The
envious darky began to weep and berate
his pal, calling him stingy. The other,
lost in visions he had conjured, stood
it a while and then snorted indignantly,
'What's the matter with your wisher?"
Seriously, however," went on Mr. Bind
er, "if the magic lamp we use in the
play really had the powers we pretend
it has. I'd rub it every night and wish
for an opportunity to be a master musi
cian. I am devoted to good music.
Pleuurc Found Ik Music.
"I play for my own amusement and to
satisfy a tremendous yearning I feel to
express myself in music. I know it's
hardly consistent with the roles I play
as funmaker and Chinese comedian
guardian of a papier mache lamp in a
big musical comedy, but none the less
the heart that pounds beneath my more
or less embroidered mandarin jacket
sighs for Chopin, Liszt and Beethoven
and Mozart in their original form, if
you please, and not done over into
jazz." -
Mr. Binder was out here a few sea
sons ago for his only visit on this
coast, playing with Sophie Tucker in
"Louisiana Lou." Mr. Wills, who plays the
other Chinese ' genfus, came here first
and only with "The Red Mill," 11 years
ago. He and Mr. Binder are now a
team, but up until they were put in the
Montgomery-Stone roles in "Chin Chin"
they were unacquainted. Now they are
inseparable pals. We found the- con
versation drifting toward the big sub
ject of friendships.
Said Wills. "The reason women can
not have fine friendships is becai of
the smallnesa of their own souls. It is
a sad commentary on the sex that
women can be close friends only so long
as the man of one comes into the tri
angle. Two men may be pals forever
without letting a woman break into
the unity. The greater a man or woman
is the more people he can understand
and make his friends. Just look around
at your own neighbors, your co-workers,
your fellow laborers. You will find
under each of their small and childish
vanities of say. unrequited ambition, or
large desires for wealth or affluence or
love, under all these surfaces at which
you sneer, is a human nature.
Mr. Wills Values Friendships.
"Suppose you were asked to Judge them

for their faults. If you could arrive at
some purely impersonal state of mind,
you would find there a lot of raw ma
terial waiting to be made into brotherly
love and friendship.
"I have," said, Mr. Wills. "an intense
nature in that I make a friendship and
it stays put. I keep my friends. I had
pal I worked with on the stage for
years and when he passed away it was
a long time, in fact until Mr. Binder's
partnership with me, that I ever really
began to feel the closeness of another
Mr. Wlls usta be a sailor. He sailed
the briny deep for five years and was
a sailor in the Spanish-American mis
understanding. It was sheer love of
the water that made him a sailor and
it is still this love that calls him to
trout streams and swlmmin' holes and
the surf. He's one of the sort who
takes cold showers and wants every
body else to take "em. too.
Likable young Americans they both
are, fond of the great outdoors which
they call their playground, ready for
a hike in the early morning and full
of the talk men talk, hunting, fishing,
canoeing, baseball (they're even plan
ning already on how they're going to
sneak to the world's series.) While we
were chatting a dressy dame all done
up in a fur coat swept past and we
all brought out o"ur little hammers
about summer furs, all, that in, except
ing WeLls.
He says that if any woman wants to
smother herself in furs in the middle
of the hottest day in the year, it is
no one's business but her own.
"She is entitled to don a sealskin
cape when she goes to bed and lie down
to pleasant dreams so clad if it pleases
her," he says.
"There is no law against It. But It
is rather difficult for a mere man to
h-elp give the dear things authority to
vote and help run the country when
they go to the polls, figuratively
wrapped up in a fur while the ther
mometer sizzles with heat."
Dressed Meat From 40
Cattl-e and: Number of
Are Destroyed..
Fire destroyed the Oberle Packing
company's plant near Peninsula avent
and Columbia boulevard early yester
day, with a total damage of about
$15,000, fully covered . by insurance.
Dressed meat from 40 head of cattle
and a number of sheep also burned.
The fire is believed to have started
in the ammonia compressing room,
w here the company manufactures ice
for its cold storage. Several ammonia
tanks exploded durinp the fire with such
violence that the grround for blocks
around was shaken. The explosion could
be heard for approximately a mile.
Absence of fire hydrants in that dis
trict, and the fact that fire engines
rould not get through mud along
Columbia slough to lay in their hose
and pump from stagnant pools, made it
impossible for firemen to combat the
flames successfully. Assistant Fire
Chief Laudenkloes went to the scene
with three- engine companies and a hose
The packing company employed two
Chinamen as night watchmen at the
plant. The Chinese did not discover the
fire, however, and the alarm was turned
in by casual passersby. The building
was a mass of flames when firemen ar
rived. The cause of the blaze is not
known, although it is thought possible
that it was started by a short circuit in
the motor which operated the ammonia
The loss to the building and equip
ment, owned by the Oberle Packing
company, of which Joseph B. Oberle,
14 SO Fairmont boulevard, is president
and chief stockholder, is estimated at
ST000 to U,000. The remainder of the
loss was to quantities of meat about
half of which was owned by Schlesser
Brothers, wholesale butchers. Mr. Oberle
bought the plant from Schlesser
brothers a few months ago. The build
ing was a one -story frame structure
about 100x300 feet in size.
