FOOD ITS SPREADING
(Bv Cliiraco Tribune Lase1 Wire.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. -18.
The sword of progressivism was
brandished and defiance to the ad
ministration ehouted by Senator La
Follette, Wisconsin, re-enthused "by
the greatest vote he ever received
and who returned to Washington
today and issued a call in the name
of the people's legislative service
for a conference here Friday, Decem
ber 1, of all progressive senators
and representatives and progres
sives recently elected for the or
ganization of an active working
group in congress.
This conference will be followed
the next day by an assemblage of
influential progressive men and
women of the country to discuss a
programme of constructive policies
Progressives, Senator La Follette
announced, were advancing to wash
ington to "translate the results of
the elections into legislation."
Third Party Talk Avoided.
Asserting that the "time has now
come for the organization of a well-
definrti group, co-operating In sup
port of accepted progressive prin
ciples and policies," the militant
Wisconsin senator declared that he
was prepared to, discuss definite
plans of action with other progres-
eive members of the house and sen
ate. He shied, however, at talk df
a third party at this time, admit
ting, however, the possibility of
such a development.
Senator La Follette proclaimed his
intention to fight to the end the
administration ship subsidy bill and
proposed amendments to strengthen
the Esch - Cummins transportation
"I am near-sighted when it comes
to looking for a third party," he
said when asked if such course
might be necessary to meet the
political Situation. "No group of
men getting together and adopting
a. resolution can successfully launch
a new party. When the time is
ripe a new party may be born, but
it will come through a resistless
demand of the people."
Farm Bloc Hostile to Harding.
The call for the progressive con
ference was signed by Senator La
Follette as president, and George
Huddleston, vice-president of the
people's "legislative service." This
call is in the form of a letter.
Coincident with Senator La Fol
lette'a announcement, Senator Cap
per, Kansas, leader of the bi
partisan farm bloc in the senate, an
nounced the farm bloc's programme
for the next two years. It is plainly
hostile to te Harding administra
tion. Mr. Capper put out a list of
things, which, he says, the repub
lican party must tio in order to
insure its retention in power
through the elections of 1924. It
must pass legislation helpful to the
farmers, repeal the guarantee sec
tion of the Esch-Cummins act, pro
vide for the adoption of a constitu
tional amendment prohibiting tax
exempt securities, "put the develop
ment of the Muscle Shoals projects
in the hands of Henry Ford, tax
stock dividends, reduce freight
charges, and make greater economies
in the administration of govern
ment." There is not a word about the
tariff in the farm bloc programme.
One of its most interesting features
is a declaration that the republican
party "must do whatever this na
tion can do to promote European
recovery and the restoration of a
foreign market for the surplus
products of our farms and factories."

BERLIN, Nov. IS. Except for
minor disturbances Coiogne and
Dusseldorff are quiet, but new food
riots are breaking out in other parts
of the country which are seriously
worrying the officials. The cost of
living increased more than 250 per
cent during the last month, ye
wages increased only -25 per cent,
putting many necessities beyond the
reach of the average wage earner.
What is making the situation
more serious is the fact that the
communists are exploiting the dis
content. This, coupled with the
appearances of many new Russian
faces where traubles occur, gives
rise to a suspicion that Moscow is
doing everything to fulfill its pro
phecy that a revolution is immi
nent. The foreign office, however, has
not been able so far to trace the
renewed communistic activities to
the bokhevik embassy here.
Iti Frechen, near Cologne, besides
plundering shops f6r 17,000,000
marks' worth of food and clothing,
the rioters burned a big granary
full of grain and a barn full of
fodder. The destruction of this
food, when there Is a scarcity, was
clearly the work of reds who are
trying to precipitate a revolution.
New troubles have been reported at
An American arriving from Co
logne said that two days ago Ger
man mounted - police with drawn
sabers charged the hunger mad
mobs. In some cases it was neces
sary for the police to fire directly
into the mobs to disperse them.
British soldiers helped restore or
der, but they only fired their rifles
in the air.
The average wage in Germany for
the lowest class of labor is 19,000
marks (the value of the mark has
varied recently from, 5000 to al
most 10,000 to the dojlar) monthly.
Clerks and stenographers get from
30,000 to 40,000 marks monthly.
Last week has seen the follow
ing rise in prices: A quart of milk
from 80 to 170 marks and sub
sidized bread from 60 to 300 marks
a loaf. This price will be effective
next week. For poor having bread
cards, the market price will be 600
marks. A pound of bread was raised
from 420 to 1000 marks.
A glass of beer went up from
70 to 100 marks a glass.
Coffee was raised from 1160 to
2000 marks a pound.

BT WILLIAM BIRD.

PARIS, Nov. . 18.-KSpecial cable.)
French sound money economists
are seriously alarmed over the grow
ing sentiment in favor of currency
inflation as the only means o pre
venting a financial crisis.
The inflation agitation has beten
carried on since the armistice by
various groups of theorists who urge
that issues of paper money really
are a non-interest bearing govern
ment loan, and therefore more ad
vantageous than an interest-bearing
bond. This propaganda has few ad
herents. Now, however, the impos
sibility of buckling the budget with
the present taxes is inducing many
powerful commercial groups to
favor a paper issue more than a
scheme of new taxation.
These merchants point to Ger
many's .apparent commercial advan
tages through her" depreciated ex
change, and suggest that inflation
would, by depreciating the franc,
help French manufacturers over
American and other tariff walls.
They say the recent fall of the franc
already has had a marked effect in
