Director General Hits Famine
Cry; Declares Transportation
Will Be Provided if Hoover
Will Speak Up?
(By Aaaortated Frew.)
Washington, Feb. 21-Director
'n .1 MrAdoo today gave assur
ance "that o far as transportation
i concerned, there is no danger of
suffering from a senous toou.
tn hr eastern part of the country.
and meat movemcui A.,
creased in the next 60 days, the
country is threatened with an acute
shortage ot iooa, -Sod
shipment, to the allies will fail.
In a letter to Mr. Hoover the di
rector gner"l declared that if the
. food administration will give definite
information on the location of stocks
of supplies intended for the allies the
railroads will move them promptly
.t0Simuu"tou9ly the rroidiAmm
istration gave out figures showing that
the' movement of grain to pnmwjr
markets in the west w.thm tht : last
10 days was far greater ; than in
avoid a controversy with the food ad
ministration, officials ol t f
directorate today did not conceal their
bel e that Mr. Hoover's statement
Was not borne out by facts shown
in their reports. Members of Mr.
McAdoo', staff-assumed the attitude
tha?Mr; Hoover had dealt in general-
ties, not supported by figures or o h r
evidence showing such a P"'m,8t,c
outlook on future food conditions.
Writing to Mr. noovci, ...
Adoo said:, '.'
Guarantees Transportation. , f
"Your are, as I understand it, the
,ole purchaser in this; country of
food supplies for the allied govern
Sent. You must, therefore know the
Station of the food suppl.es which
you, from time to time, purchase and
the ports in this country to which
you desire such supplies f 'PP: ;
"If you will notify me from time
to time of the location of th ! specific
supplies and the port or po t i n , the
United States to which you wish to
have such supplies transported 11
guarantee the necessary .transport!,
fion, subject alone to interruption
from -blizzards and fls. .
"I wish to reassure the country by
saying that so far as transportation
concerned there s no dw8?f
fering from a serious food shortage in
.,.t.n nart of the country.
The food administration, upon re
ceipt of the letter, issued this state-
ment Will Overcome Shortage.
"While Mr. Hoover is put of town,
food administration officials consider
Mr. McAdoo's 'tTU
surinir. since it ndtcates that further
ca . will be furnished to western
terminals and the shortage o". the
western terminals to eas ern territory
now will be overcome. As th raiN
wgy directorate are evidently al ve to
the situation they iU no doubt take
all necessary steps." , ' . .
A railroad administratiqn statement,
without referring to Mr. Hoovers
declaration that he' domestic and
ii;, fnoA situation can be solveq
only by loading 8,000,000 bushels , ot
rain 'a day for the next- 60 days,
explained 'that already 6,000,000 bush
Vs of grain are being loaded daily
iand.even better loading is in pros-
lP-'unofficially it was, declared that
"practically all the grain being offered
by farmers and local elevators was
being hauled, by the railroads under
general priority orders for foodstuffs,
particularly for grain in the westj
It was suggested that farmers are
not bringing their grain to market
as fast as they should.. Railroad offi
rials also called attention to the fact
that potato-growers last f fall held
much of their crop for higher prices
and that condition is partly responsi
ble for the extraordinary offering at
this time of potatoes which the rail
roads are having some difficulty mov-
Referring to the general food mov
ing situation the railroad administra
tion said: , . .
"There has now been about two
weeks of moderately good weather,
during which time an extraordinary
effort has been put forth by the rail
roads. For th week ending February
16, 22,104,000 bushels of gram were
deceived at western primary markets
-which wereahe largest receipts for
:one week in two years, an increase
of 54 per cent over the previous; week
" and 51J4 per edit over the same week
' last year. - v ,
"The average number of cars ot
Jferain being loaded is 5,000, which is
.'approximately 6,000,000 bushels daily.
This has been done notwithstanding
(he weather conditions are still severe
a large part of the country and it
- will certaihly increase, in proportion
as the weather moderates.
The movement of special food
trains under fast schedules can be
made to any section of the country
-threatened suddenly with a Mood
shortage, according to railroad di
rectorate officials, and this plan will
be resorted to if , the shortage Mr.
Hoover forecasted actually develops.
Buchs, Switzerland, Feb. 23.
Five entente allied airmen flying
over the Julian Alps Wednesday
afternoon found that the town
of .Innsbruck, Austrian Tyrol,
was not . protected by anti-aircraft
guns. The airmen there,
upon swooped down to within
300 yards of the ground, picked
out targets and copiously
bombed them, including the rail
road station, barracks and two
new munitions factories.
Soldiers and civilians were
surprised and being unaccus
tomed to an air attack rushed
into the streets and many were
killed. The consulate was hit and
trains loaded wtih soldiers on
their, way to. the Trentino front
were attacked by machine guns
from a low altitude..

By Henry H. Lovell,
Aside from the so-called deal
ers' and garage policies there is a
more or less complete coverage tor
the individual automobile owner
or operator. The various forms of
protection for so-called commer
cial cars is intricate and confusing
and no general outlines can be
given in a brief article more than
to say that fire, theft, property
damage and collision are provided
for as well as oh pleasure cars.
For the owner of the pleasure
car there is provided coverage
which may be partial or complete,
as his need may seem urgent.
First insurance against loss by
fire, including self-ignition. This
is about uniform at the average
rate for contents of such buildings
as are used as garages. The fire
form may be to cover only in a
given building, but the owner at a
slight additional cost would much
better have the marine or floater
form, which covers fire loss any
where, in or out of any building,
and includes the hazard of trans
portation, either from fire or by
Next comes the theft protection,
which is written only with the fir
hazard explained above. This pays
for loss of the car by theft or dam
age done same by reason of its
theft, if recovered. This may or
may not extend to robes and tem
porary equipment of the car, ac
cording to the endorsements on the
policy. It does not cover tools, as
a rule, but does cover equipment,
and may be limited to pay only the
loss over a certain minimum. This
form covers wherever the car may
be in the owner's service, but does
not include theft by his servants,
including garage employes where
he stores the car.
Investigate Valued and
Liability insurance on automo
biles is the protection of defense
and payment of judgment if any
resulting from any right of action
arising from the operation or
ownership of the car by the as
sured. This is usually written on
the basis of $5,000 limit for one
injury to one person and $10,000
limit for one accident when more
than one is injured. These limits
cover in each case whether the
owner has one claim or one a
week so lofg as the policy is in
force. The insuring company
bears the expense of adjustment
or trial in any claim or alleged
Property damage is covered by
an additional, endorsement and
protects the owner against claims

other property of another through

Collision, insurance is to cover
damage to the owner's own car
through collision, and in some
policies includes collision or "im
naction" with the earth (except
injury to tires on curbs.) This is
usually written with the first $25

as hail, tornado, sprinkler leakage
and similar hazards.
Fire and theft premiums are
based on list price' of cars at so
much per hundred.
Liability policy charges are
based on rated horse power with
co-efficients as to ease of control
and other factors.
For property damage and col
lision risks all cars are rated by
make, type and horse power, on
experience tables, as, of course,
are all the ratings for the various
