Ernest Basserman, gray haired, national liberal party
leader and one of the most important figures in the
reichstag, declared today after the question has been
v aired in the budget committee meetings, it will be fully
discussed in open sessions.
"We wish to live in peace and friendship with Amer
ica," said Basserman, "but undoubtedly there is bitter
feeling here because American supplies of ammunition
enable our enemies to continue the war.
"If America should succeed in forcing England to obey
international law, restore freedom of the seas and pro
ceed with American energy against England's brutaliza
tion of neutrals, it would have a decisive influence on the
political situationbetvveen the two countries."
"Do you think submarine warfare will be renewed?"
he was asked.
"That must be decided by the- foreign office, the min
istry of marine and the general staff," was the reply.
"England is our chief enemy. We must recognize this
and defeat her."

Of the great number of innovations
inaugurated at the state fair this year
that which met with the grnteiui np-(
probation of the general public was the

to be exact, A,Mi .rooms representing;
jncomuiodations for over 5,000 visitors to
the state fair were provided with over
night accommodations through the mc-
dium of this agency and it proved a
Lhuppy -solution to the - multitude of
' griefs which have been suffered during
previous stttto t:-irs ny strangers nu
had been unable to engage- lodgings
prior to their arrival. Two competent
utteudunts were kept in charge of this
department and, thiough the co-opera-jtiou
of the housewives of Salem and the

big rush of transients during the three
j heavy days of the exposition was hand

I successful this year tha Secretary-Man-'nsrer

hoped, every need of the visitors to the

New York, Oct. 3. Only 25 to 35 per
cent of tho usual milk supply reached
New York today according to varying
estimates from both aides of the big
milk strike. Hospitals and the babies
still hid their share of fresh milk, but
restouioiits in many cases were without
any and householders found only small
poitic-nu of their required amounts at
their doors this morning.
Meantime state authorities rushed
work on an investigation of both the
alleged distributing and producing com
bines now at loggerheads. A referee
will take testimony in an effort to
ascertain if the dairymen's league the

late yesterday when their big touring
car crashed down a precipitious bluf in

The Walkers arrived in Ukiah today
by stage and told their story.
Walkers apparently bears a charmed
life. Pour years ago he was an aviat

450 feer into the treetops, escaping
without a scrnsrh.

occupautiwas even bruised. The Walk
ers vere en route to Ukiah from Ban
Praueisco when the steering gear broke
and the machine plunged headlong over
tho cliff. For 50 feet it -was a sheer
drop. Then the big touring car tore
throuph a patch of dense brush, break
ing off a tree four Inches in diameter.
Walker applied the brakes, and at
tempting to hold the car straight with
one hand, he threw the children under
the cowl with the other. Ho cruoched
low nnd shouted to his wife to lie down
in th' touneau.
Whu-.i the nind descent of the automo
bile was finally stopped by the brush,
the Walkers found themselves 150 feet
below' th.' road and without i scratch.
The only damage to the machine was
tho smashing of one front wheel and the
bending of a front axle. The glass
panes of the headlight were intact.
Wnlkcr's driving goggles were torn
off in the descent and were left hang
ing on the bough of a tree.
Leaving tho machine, the Walkers
miido their way down thej-'onyon to a
farm where they spent the night.
This morning ropes were attached to
the suitcases in the tonneau of the
Walker machine and they were hauled
up to tho road. To haul up the auto
mobile will be a difficult feat.
Walker is a son of D. F. Walkor, for
mer president of the Calitorniu tSnfo De
