Austrian flelief Finds
Conditions Much Better
VIENNA., Aug. 18. A new
survey of economic condit ons has
caused the American Child reliei
to make a drastic cut in its char
ity in Austria. It is proposed
this Burner gradually to reduce
the number of children ed to
200,000 and these will be con
fined largely to Vienna and other
cities where much want will be
faced during the coming winter.
The general improvement in
the rural regions is illustrated by
action of the Americans in clos
ing 68 of their kitchens in Uper
Austria alone in one week. All
ch'ldren of parents in fair finan
cial circumstances are excluded
under the new program as welt
as children ot farmers In other
words. American relief will, bft

More real, old fashioned, non

here than In any other city of

The test suit was filsjjl by Oscar

Expert chemists testified for
the copper company that the pro

chemical formulae to prove therr
assertions. Experts for Goon
charged that the cattle had died of
arsenic and zinc poisoning after

was to counteract testimony of
the defense experts that the cat
