HUNGARIAN WORKERS DEMAND
FOOD AND WAR'S END ATONCE
Memorial Urging Peace Without Annexations and Fair
Distribution of Necessaries of Life Presented to Pre
mier; Ask Immediate Discussion of Franchise
Bill; Government Promises Aid.
(Br Aseocietad Frasa.)
Amsterdam, Jan. 23. The official correspondence bureau
of Budapest announces that Dr. Wekerle, the Hungarian
premier, has received a deputation of workmen which handed
him a memorial containing a resolution stating that the work
men desired a speedy conclusion of peace based on the prin
ciples of no annexation, self determination of the rights of peo
ples and the immediate discussion in the the Hungarian lower
house of the franchise bill.
The workmen further requested a fair and equal distribu
tion of foodstuffs and other necessaries. ,
DISTURBANCES MUST CEASE. (
Premier Wekerle, in reply, referred
to Foreign Minister Czernin's well
known statement on the peace negoti
ations and added that the Hungarian
government was strongly supporting
the peace policy. But, he said, in
cidents like the present strike seri
ously menaced the peace negotiations
and if the workmen desired the ac
complishment of peace these dis
turbances must be stopped imme
diately. i Dr. Wekerle emphasized that the
government would stand or fall with
the franchise bill and would appeal to
the people if a majority for the bill
was not obtained. He announced that
the government was resolved to take
energetic measures to master the dif
cult conditions caused by the war
jnd that it expected the . workmen
immediately to resume work.
I Work is Resumed.
I The leader, of .the workmen's
deputation noted the premier's reply
and expressed the hoie that work gen
erally would be resumed. Dispatches
from Budapest add that work was re
sumed everywhere on Monday.
, The strike in Austria, according to
i dispatch from Vienna printed in the
Vossiache Zeitung of Berlin was
Started by a workman named Schore
felder, who induced a couple of hun
dred of his comrades at the Daimler
Motor Works in Weiner-Neustade. 13
ftiiles south of Vienna, to walk out.'
The strike spread rapidly and on
Thursday of last week all the muni
tion works and factories were forced
fc close. Hundreds of thousands of
persons cathered in the streets. No
songs were sung and no banners were
iown, the dispatch says, threats,

Use Cocoanut Oil
For Washing Hair
If you want to keep your hair In
good condition, be careful what you
wash it with.
Mmt annna and nrerjared shamPOOS
contain too much alkali. This dries
the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and
Is very harmful. Just plain mulsifled
cocoanut oil (which is pure and en
tirely greaseless), is much better than
the most expensive soap or anything
else you can use for shampooing, as
this can't possibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with
water and rub it in. One or two tea
spoonfuls will make an abundance of
rich, creamy lather, and cleanses the
hair and scalp thoroughly. The lather
rinses out easily, and removes every
particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and
excessive oil. The hair dries quickly
and evenly, and it leaves it fir and
silky, bright, fluffy and easy to man
age. You can get mulsified cocoanut oil
at most any drug store. It is very
cheap, and a few ounces is enough to
