years and must, in justice, bo restor

great intelligence and noble spirit.
"It is the desire of nil, especially
the socialists, to introduce new ele

also have this desire, but to impose a

begin by having it at home."
Stephen Pichon, foreign minister
told tho chamber of deputies yesterday
that the Frone.h government has accept

tions and will "work toward its reaali

' ' We demand no annexations, ' ' Pi
chon declared. "Discussion of the
boundaries of Alsace-Lorraine does not
involve the question of annexations."
Pichon said that the government will
make no effort to force the bM,'n
people to adopt any particular form of
government, but that the allies will vr
tect Ukrainia and Caucasia from thr
bolsheviki and later, if necessary, will
aid Russia to fight "anarchy." ;

Wages Are Not Keeping Up
Wilh Raise In Prices Of
By Webb Miller
'United Press Staff Correspondent.)
With the Amorican Army o- Occu
pation, Dee. 28. (Delayed.) The gou
ernl situation in Germany as regards
supplies of all kinds is bad, but it is
not immediately serious, reports of Am
erican intelligence officers showed to
day. .
After a two weeks investigation
throughout the entire area occupied by
the Aineircan forces, these officers re
ported that the food situation is not
dangorous at the present time. They
believe that within a short time 'work
ing peoole in the towns will begin to
feel a real pinch. Stocks now on hand.
it is asserted, are sufficient to lasv
til February 1 or 15 in the towns, while
the farmers have been sufficiently fore
sighted to store their stocks until thuy
have enough to last through the win
ter. Inasmuch as a greater part of the
region is agricultural, conditions aa a
whole aro fairly good.' Many persons in
the Moselle valley, wine growers, will
bo forced to buy foodstuffs. In the
towns war rationing is still being en
forced. There is a serious shortage of
butter, eggs and milk. Those are prae
tically non-existent in the towns. The
weultliior citizens are ' able to obtain
them by back door dealing.
Official Food Allowance.
The official food allowance duriug
tho last week in December for each
person was four pounds, eight ounces
of broad, twelve ounces ef flour, gov
en pounds of potatoes, ten ounces of
canned vegetables, one egg, two ounces
of gutter, eight ounces of sugar, twelve
uuih-us ui turnip lops.
There was no meat to be had. Heavv
workers irere permitted an additutjai
pound of potatoes.
The cost of this, the intelligence re
port shows, averages about ton marks
daily, while in the -otties, it is much
higher. '
Gorman officials claim the potato
crop on which is placed the greatest do
pendence for food, is a partial failure
and doclare the situation may become
sorious lato in February unless stocKs
not now scheduled make their appear
ance. . . -

ary principles of extradition in no wise

former head of the British foreign of

cussed the, kaiser s situation in a pre

Extradition, Maycock points out, ie'

questions are:

"It will be tolerably obvious to any

However, even if this i the esse, there

"Suppose they do so," says May
cock, "It may then be asked in what
do such privileges consist'"
On this point Maycock quotes a rec

states thai

The statement was greeted by wild

Principle Exists
- Wilson declared that ths spirit of
sympathy between the peoples of Am

sentiment, but principle.
' "iMen give more than is demanded
from impulse," he said. ."The desire
to serve comes from friendship."
Wnile en route from the mansion

first U-boat ever, eaptured, moored in
