End of a Perfect

Power Conferred By Law Not

Held Sufficient.
WashlnRton. President Wilson ha
-decided not to exercise powers con
ferred In the McNary stiKar control
bill authorizing purchase and distri
bution of the Cuban sugar crop, ue
cordiug to a statement Issued at the
White house.
The statement said the president
bad decided on the basis of facts pre
sented for his consideration and the
recommendation of the sugar cqualiia
tlon board that this power should not
Lo exercised.
In a long statement announcing the
president' decision, the declaration Is
mndo that apparently the available
susar supply Is sufficient for American
needs, "even on the present unneces
sarily large basis of consumption," and
notice Is given that the power of prb.e
control through the licensing system,
authorized by the bill, will be Invoked
If neressary In co-opcratlon with the
department of justice. Figures attach
ed show that the estimated 1919 con
sumption in the United States waa
slUhtiy more than 4,500,000 tons, of
which normally only 1,000,000 tons wns
domestic production-
A tho Cuban crop Is unusually
large. 4, $00,000 tons, of which the al
ius, however, because of limited pur
chasing power, will take only about
1.250,000 tons, and as the estimated
Louisiana, western beet, Hawaiian and
Porto ltlcan production will reach
000,000 tons, the statement foresee a
sufficient supply for American needs.

Washington Vnable to .prosecute
tho so-called parlor bolshcvists, long
haired men and short haired women,
who encourage cgitators and promote
sedition as a pastime, Attorney-General
Palmer Issued an appeal to con
gress for prompt action cn the biil
submitted by him several months ago
which would strengthen the bands of
the department of Justice in dealing
with American citiiens considered
dangerous to the nation.
Coming on the heels of the most
successful natiou-wide raid on radi
cals ever made in this country, Mr.
Palmer'a statement was regarded with
unusual Interest by members of ecn
press. At least one of the men taken In
the raids is a city official, and numer
ous others are natives or have taken
out citizenship papers. It is these
that Mr. Palmer desires to handle
through the federal courts rather than
to leave their punishment to state tri
bunals, and In the absence of a federrl
law be is unable to do so.
Franc Grant Permission for Transfer

ParlB. The French government has

France. The bodies to be removed
are those burled in cemeteries outside
the sone of the armies and do not in
clude those gathered into big Ameri
can cemeteries in the army zones.
It is understood that the policy if
the American government will bo to
remove to the United States only those
bodies requested by relatives.
These 20,000 bodies are scattered
in 600 cemeteries, the largest two i f
which are at Brest, where there are
about 6500 graves of men who died
of int'uenza at Brest and ou trans
ports. Congress Back on tha Job.

A delicious and well-prepared des
iert will often help us to forget that
the prjeeding dishes
wort' ii-t all that we de
sired. At this season of
the year frozen desserts
and lish'. easily digested
dishes tire more suitable.
-1 luring the hot weather
we need refreshing com
binations rotber than
the nourishing; however,
one may have both in a
cream. A most satisfac
dish of Jt
tory sherbet, which is both delicious
nnd economical, is
Velvet Sherbet. Take the juice of
three lemons, two cupfuls of siijiarand
ouiirt of zood mil!;, the richer the
bettor, though ordinary milk will be
satisfactory. Freeze ana serve in
sherbet cups.
Orange and Lemon Sherbet Take
the Juice of two oranges, two lemons
ttnd two cupfuls of sugar and a quart
of thin cream ; freeze ns usual.
Dainty Dessert Take a pound of
marshuiullows and a dtp of pecans cut
fine; cut the mallows into quarter
nnd add enough whipped cream to
blend nnd hold them together. Into a
large-topped sherbet glass put a table
spoonful of any canned fruit . Juice,
fill with the whip and serve with a
cherry ns a garnish.
Duchess Cream. Take sis table
spoonfuls of tapioca; cook until clear
cool, add n pinch of salt, one cupful
of sugar, the juice from a can of pine
apple, the juice of two oranges and
two lemons; cool; until thick. Cool,
then add the pineapple, oue cupful of
nuts and a pint of whipping cream.
This makes enough to serve 15, so that
the rceipe may be cut in half for an
ordinary family.
Chocolate Pudding. Take one egg
when well beaten add one-nalt
eunful of smmr. one cupful of milk,
two squares of chocolate melted, oue
nnd .one-half cupfuls of flour sifted
with tltree teaspoonfuls of baking pow
der. Steam one and one-half hours
