CHICAGO. Nov. 29. Across a table on
which reposed a lonely but highly sym
bolic egg, the housewives of Chicago and
tho egg dealers, through their representa
tives, met here today to discuss the boy
cott being conducted by the women.
The conference las.ted two hours and
there was no compromise. Tho boycott
will continue. Tho wholesalers said that
the high prices were duo to a shortage
and that the boycott mteht bo a good
thing for all concerned, as the abstemi
ousness of tho boycotters would lighten
the task of the dealers who haven't eggs
enough to go around.
The women declared that the boycott
would be pushed with- vigor to enlist
women throughout the country In addi
tion to the 100,000 said to be In tho ranks
"You ask for co-operation," said Mrs.
Cnrollno K. Bley. president of the Clean
Food club and leader of the boycott, at
one stage of the proceedings. 'Well, we
would be glad to sit wlthyou at meetings
of the Butter and Egg board.-'

by Hear Admiral Fletcher of the extent

Is taken as evidence that he was satis

The return of the battleship New

an abatement of the tension In that quar
