President Wilson to this end. The food
administration will cease to exist with

Herbert Hoover, United States food
administrator, has expressed his desire
to be relieved of his duties as soon as
possible. It is. considered certain that
the machinery of the food administra

government will continue to bo directed
at the maximum production of food in
America and the practice of conserva

shipment to Europe. Naturally, how

New York, Nov. 9. France, after the
war, will expect to have help from the
United States in the form of labor,
money, material and ships. This was
made plain by Andre Tardicu, French
high commissioner and minister of
Franco-American war affairs in the
French cabinet. . '
Tardicu in an address to the associa
tion of French correspondents said he
hoped American troops would relieve
the labor situation. He said that

The report that Prince Max had

was takon as another straw showing the
way of tho wind. If it is true, it is
another evidence that the Gorman is
constantly growing less sympathetic
with autocracy and its helpers. Reports
that, the kaiser would quit are still
taken reservedly, though the ' govern

office is about closed, regardless of how
the armistice goes. German wireless

of revolution in Germany is given as
his reason for remaining.

tho possibility of a rejection of ' the

Tho kaiser was born January 27,
1859. In saving his mother's lif 0 when
he was born the main nerves of his
left arm were so strained that tho arm
became shriveled and has hung useles
