of tha flourmllls tn tha Northwest are
equipped to grind substitutes, and then only
:imlted quantltlea The others hare no ma
chinery to chance their equipment and can
not vet such machinery.
Therefore, if tha proposed mixed-floor pro
mmma goes Into effect, and Congressional
action on It Am expected very soon, the mills
In tha Northwest will hsve to close down,
u ainiri dona so. They can
not make anything- but straight flour, and
the Government will not buy this straight
product, when It begins operating under the
new Hoover plan.
It Is Mr. Hoover's Idea that all of the
allied nations should eat the same una 01
a loaf. They are going to have their mixed
flour In Europe and Americans must live
on the same fare. " Everyone agrees with
Mr. Hoover In this. The people of .Portland
are on a 20-part substitute ration now and
Ilka It. They do their own mixing at home.
It Is proposed by the new rule, however,
that the millers must turn out the mixed
product, and as they cannot no it who m
means at hand, they declare they must
close their mills unless the plan Is modi
fled In some way. They have sent protests
to the Food Administration officials, but
unless the dslry and stockmen enlist the
aid of the Northwest delegation In Con
gTeea, there can be no results. When the
mills close down, of course, tha millfeed

Is a possibility that tha flour may become
tainted. Even If the wooden vessels should
prove satisfactory. It is pointed out that
the entire Northwestern output of wooden,
aa wall aa steel ships, wilt prove lnsdequate
to handle all the flour that should be made
from this yeafe wheat crop.
Whatever way It goea the atockmen can
not get all tha millfeed they want, and

from 10c decline to 12c advance
Corn developed weakness quickly, and at
no time displayed much power to recover.
The continued rapid progress of the en
tente allies formed an evident handicap for
the bulls, and was made more and more of
a burden as reports came In telling of Im
proved conditions for drying put the crop
and of Increased likelihood for a complete
escape from damage by frost,
Oats showed a stubborn resistance to sell
ing pressure. The chief reason ascribed was
that purchasing had been liberal for the
Government and the seaboard.
Higher quotations on hogs strengthened
provisions. In the lata dealings, however.
nork evinced something of a tendency to sag.
Corn tumbled In value this week, mainly
as a result of an unexpected big Increase
of the estimated yield for 1918 and owing
to completeness of American successes in
France. Compared with a week ago corn

CITY TO TAKE OVER SICK
TUBERCCT-OSIS WORK CITES UP
BI VISITING NURSES.
Council Will Be Asked to Make Ap
propriation ot Approximately
98740 for Keir Department.
The city health bureau Is preparine
to take over the tuberculosis work in
the city, which for the past ten years
has been handled by the Visiting- Nurse
Association. Recently officers of this
org-aniiation notified Mayor Baker that
because of the increase in calls follow-
inr the growth In population ana tne
difficulty in securing funds, the Asso
ciation-would discontinue this work.
Health Officer Parrish, at the re
quest of the Mayor has made a survey
to determine tne aaaea neip ana com
In maintaining- a department In his
bureau to properly look after this Im
portant work. According- to nis esti
mate it will cost approximately $8740
additional to do this work.
Dr. Parrish believes that Portland
should have a sanatorium to care for
the tuberculosis victims, but his estl-'
mate of the yearly cost for taking ovej
this work does not include an appro
priation for the sanatorium. He is of
opinion that the city should first es
tablish itself In the work and then
secure a suitable sanatorium.
Mavor Baker has endorsed r. Par-
rleh's plan and the City Council will
be asked to pass an ordinance making
an appropriation to carry on the work
and authorising City Health Officer
Parrish to re-organize his department
to handle the added burden.

STOCKS CLOSE FIRM
Net Gains of One to Five Points
MONEY SITUATION EASIER
Continued Favorable War News and
Market Rise In Liberty Bonda En
courage Baying for Investment.
Short Covering Effective.
NEW TORK, Sept. 14. With the tock
market exhibiting a, trong undertone for
the tint time this week, general recoveries
from the weakness of the last few days fea
tured the Saturday short session "in trading
Indications were clear that the stringency In
money, to which was attributed the liquida
tion which has marked the retrograde
movement of speculative issues, had been
modified, at least to a limited extent, and
this factor and the continued favorable war
news, together with a marked rise in lib
erty bonds, served to encourage Investment
buyers. Short covering at the levels brought
about by the recent break also contributed
to the firmness, and stacks generally ruled
from 1 to 5 points above yesterday's closing
General Electric and United States Al
cohol scored the largest gains, each rising
5 points. United States Steel and other rep
resentative issues, including Reading, South
ern jfacixic ana Canadian facine, rose Be
tween 1 and 2 points, while some of the
specialties, which have been in the fore
front of the recent decline, made even greater
advances. Sales amounted to loO.OOO shares.
Analysis of the bank statement disclosed
a much smaller decrease in loans than was
commonly expected, in view of the drastic
liquidation of the week, the retrenchment
amounting to only $32,000,000. Surplus bank
reserves decreased $33,761, 220.
Miscellaneous bonds maintained a good
tone in sympathy with the improvement in
liberty issues. Total sales, par value, $4,950,-
000. United States bonds, old issues, were
unchanged on call for the week.

Requeat for Cancellation of Cltlaenehln
Paper la Denied Pending
Anton E. Erikson. 401 Fourth ave
nue, Seattle, was g-iven a stinging- re
buke for his apparent un-Amerlcanism
in a letter written to him yesterday by
John B. Easter, chief clerk of the county
Erikson on Friday wrote to the
naturalization bureau, demanding, that
his citizenship papers be canceled. He
said he would rather remain a Norwe
gian subject than become a citizen of
the United States. His declaration of
intention was inclosed in the letter.
Mr. Easter returned the declaration
with a formal notice that it would not
be accepted until the Government could
make a complete Investigation. He
likewise gave the Norwegian a little
lesson In Americanism as follow:
"A man who renounces allegiance to
his sovereign and assumes allegiance
to a country that gives him protection
and an opportunity to be the equal of
any man deserves little consideration
at the hands of the authorities when he
seeks to avoid serving the country
which gave him protection when It
needs his services."
