The M. E. Smiths once more met
their old rivals, the Townsends, and
nabbed the honors on the slight mar

been theirs. Ifcrmes and Hovev

ADOO GIVES OUT
WAR COST FIGURES
Costs of Conflict Not Increas
ing Frcm Month to Month, as
iiad Been Expected by
Washington, March 20. Imminence
of Secretary McAdoo's announce
ment of the size and interest rate of
the third Liberty loan to open April
6, gave special importance today to
a treasury announcement of govern
ment receipts and expenditures, from
which might be calculated with fair
accuracy the sum the government
would need before the end of the fis
cal year, June 30.
Outstanding features of these fig
ures, as unofficially analyzed were
that war costs are not increasing from
month to month, as had been ex
pected, and that ordinary expenses
and loans to allies in the next three
and one-third months probably will
not be much over $4,000,000. To this
must be added the necessary outlay
of about $3,155,000,000 to redeem
certificates of indebtedness now out
standing and maturing before June
36; $500,000,000 for a railroad ad
ministration revolving fund; $500,
000,000 for the government's capital
in tlie. ar finance corporation whose
creation is expected soon, and $500,
000,000 to provide a current working
balance at the end of the year. These
would make a total of $8,655,000,000
needed betwpen now and June 30.
On the other side of the books
might be placed the $853,000,000
working balance on hand today;
$2,316,000,000 estimated receipts from
income and ercess profits taxes and
other internal revenue sources; $75,-
000,000 estimated miscellaneous re
ceipts; $43,000,000 estimated costums
receipts; approximately $200,000,000
revenue expected from sale of war
saving stamps and thrift stamps, and
$500,000,000 to be received in the next
three days from a current issue of
certificates. These would make a
total of nearly $4,500,000,000 which
might be expected to flow into the
treasury between now and June 30
from other sources than the Liberty
On the basis of calculation the dif
ference to be provided for would be
between $4,000,000,000 and $5,000,000,
000. This sum is much less than had
been calculated in the past as neces

$2.50 WHEAT PRICE
Pomeren of Ohio, Democrat
Declares Present Guarantee
of $2.20 Prescribed by
Washington, March 20. Opposition
to the , proposal to make , $2.50 per
bushel, the government price guaran
tee for. 1918 wheat opened today in
the senate, after nearJy three , days
debate by senators from the western
agricultural states in favor of the in
crease. Action was deferred, again, with
supporters of the legislation confident
of securing a majority, but doubtful
about the two thirds vote necessary
toiadd it to the pending agricultural
Senator Pomerene of Ohio, demo
crat, spoke at length against any in
crease, declaring that the , price of
$2.20 prescribed by President Wilson's
recent proclamation was ample. He
said proposals in congress for. 'in
creases had caused wheaf hoarding,
and suffering by the allies, and. that
the situation came mostly from states,
where the last crop was below normal
An increase, he added, would - mean
higher bread prices for. consumers,
already suffering from the high cost
Senator Gore of' Oklahoma, author
of , the propsed amendment, inter
rupted to point out that under the
administration railroad control bill,
the railroads may go into court to
have just compensation fixed for their
properties taken over by the govern
ment, and to ask if farmers should
have siipilar privileges. When Senator
Pomerene replied that the govern
ment has commandeered the railroads .
Senators Gore and Reed insisted that '
by price fixing wheat also virtually
has been commandeered.
Admitting that the food adminis
trationjhas made some minor mis
takes, Senator Pomerene added:
"On the whole Mr. Hoover hat
done a great service to the people
of this country and to the allies."
If.it had not been for wheat con
trol, Senator Pomerene said, flout
would be $25 a barrel.
Senator Reed declared' millions o!
bushels of wheat had been held bad
from the market by lack of trans
portation, and Senator Wadswortk
of New York said the food adminis
trator has ordered curtailment ol
millers' purchases and closed mills
all r over the country, preventing
farmers from selling.
