President Promises the Support of
the Administration, But Will Not
Stand for Any "Pork Barrel"
Sherman, Cannon and Dickinson
New Orleans, Nov. 1. Ringing de
mands for "14 feet through the val
ley" and elaborate argument in sup
port of the program for the creation
of a deep waterway from the lakes to
the gulf have marked the great con
vention of the Deep Waterway asso
ciation that opened here Saturday.

the Mississippi valley states, innumer
able senators and representatives and
a mighty throng of private citizens
who believe in the big river project
are here and all urge that it be un

clusion. President Taft Promises Support.
President Taft, who arrived in New
Orleans escorted by a great flotilla,
after an illuminating trip down the
Mississippi river from St. Louis, land

morning, and was driven to his ho

Through the Valley" and "River Rate
Regulation Is Rate Regulation." At
the Athenaeum in the afternoon the
president aroused a storm of cheers
by promising that if the 14-feet project
proved feasible and advisable, the
present administration would favor
the issuance of government bonds to
defray the cost.
Not for a "Pork Barrel."
At the same time Mr. Taft made It
plain that he would not stand for any
plan to make a "pork barrel" of the
project. He said he opposed any
such general bond issue of $500,000,
000 or 11,000,000,000 for waterways
improvement, the money to be cut
up and parceled out to different sec
tions, lie declared that the improve-
ment of waterways had been carried
forward in a haphazard fashion in
the past, and that a new method
should be adopted.
"I believe in the deep waterway,"
said the president. "I am for it, and
I shall use all the power that I pos
sess in doing what may be accom
plished to give you citizens of this
great valley what you so earnestly de
sire. It is all a part of a still great

are not to be adopted for sending

The Best Food for Workers.
The best food for those who work
with hand or brain is never high
The best example of this Is found in
Quaker Oats. It stands at the top
among foods that supply nourishment
and vigor, without taxing the diges
tion, and yet it is the least expensive
food one can eat.
This great food value and low cost
make it an ideal food for families who
want to get tho greatest good from
what they eat.
Laborers, factory or farm hands, fed
plentifully on Quaker Oats will work
better and with less fatigue than if
fed on almost any other kind of food.
All of these facts were proved and
