Washington Uni, St. Louis,
Inaugurates New System
The law school of Washington
university. Si. Louis, will inaugurate
a revised system of examinations with
the 1918-19 jdiool year, with the view
to giving students more complete
mastery of the subjects studied by
them, and thus lifting the standard of
the institution to the highest level
Under the new order of things
there will be two semesters, as in
other departments of the university,
tiie law school having hitherto had a
single term, with examinations scat
tered throughout as the finish of subject-studies
In future there will be two examin
ation periods, following the close of
each semester, and it is the purpose
to make these examinations thorough
through questionnaires prepared by
the faculty covering every branch of
the subjects studied.

SIX HUN ARMIES
Tenacity of Allies Prevents
Enemy From Carrying Out
Plans of Advance Accord
ing to Program.
(By Associated Pre.)
With the French Army in France,
April 14. All efforts of the German
high command for the present are
directed toward the systematic dis
location of the British armies. Hav
ing failed to break the communication
between the British and French, the
enemy has turned his sole attention
northward, and it appears likely that
the Germans will continue to throw
all their available strength in that
The enemy's plan seems to be to
deliver a succession of hammering
blows at different points between the
Somme and the sea, with the desire of
bringing about a British evacuation
of the entire northern district of
Six Armies Engaged.
Six German armies are participat
ing in the battle raging along the
front. They are von Arnim's, von
Quest's, Otto von Below's, von Mar
witz's, von Hutierq's and von Boehm's,
on the east of the Oise.
The Germans, owing to their
possession of interior lines of com
munication inside the semicircle
formed by the front, are able to move
their strategic reserves with greater
facility than the allies and thus by
surprise attacks with rapidly concen
trated superior forces can compel the
retirement of the allies at any point.
Hitherto, owing to the great tenacity
of the allies, the enemy has been un
able to carry out his plans of advance,
according to his prearranged pro
gram. Advance Slower Than Expected.
This has been learned from orders
captured on prisoners who have fallen
into allied hands in considerable num
bers these latter days during close
fighting. These orders foresaw the
capture of the line along the Lys
river, April 9, while Bethune should
have been taken April 10, but it was
saved hv the wonderful defense of
the British at Givenchy.
On the French portion of the battle
line the principal fighting is progress
ing on the sectors toward Amiens,
where the Germans persist in trying
to pierce the line in order to obtain
the moral victory of taking Amieirt,
but they are unable to overcome the
opposition of the French. During last
night the battle here never ceased a
moment, enemy assaults being im
mediately followed by French counter
attacks, which resulted in the recap
lure of the important village of
Hangard with a number of prisoners.

Live Stock Prices Advance
While Dairy Products Decline
Washington, April 14. Wholesale
price fluctuations for the week end
ing April 6 for food and feedstuffs
showed mors, activity than at any
time in the preceding three months,
according to the food administration's
weekly market report made public to
day. Live stock showed the sharpest in
crease of the week ending March 30.
Native beef steers sold for $1375, an
increase of $1.85 over the week be
fore, while lambs brought $18.60, an
increase of $1 over the previous
week. Hogs went up 30 cents per 100
pounds from $17.10.
The sharpest decreases were in
dairy products, potatoes and hay.
Fresh butter dropped 2 cents from
42 cents the week before, while the
price of storage butter fell 1 cent from
38 cents. Only a fraction of a cent
reduction were realized in fresh eggs

Telegram.) While the Liberty loan
drive does not start in this state until
Monday a large amount of the assign

many of whom went far beyond their

South Dakota got so affluent and
blew its own horn so hard that now
during the third Liberty loan drive,
it is shelling out the dollars in big
ger amounts than its less noisy
neighbors, and South Dakota being
a farmer state, is just naturally "reap
ing as it sowed."
The last Liberty loan in the fall
called for $12,000,000 v from this state
which went over the top. Crops were
gooa and prices high last year and
bank deposits grew by leaps and
bounds until South Dakota like lit
tle boy with his first pair of red top
boots, wanted to tell everybody how
rich it was.
Accordingly the government raised
the opportionment in the third Lib
erty loan to $22,000,000 and left North
Dakota at $6,500,000 and Montana at
$9,000,000, although all three state
have approximately the same popu
lation. Some South Dakota farmers
kicked to A. R. Rogers of Minne
apolis, chairman of the Ninth Federal
Reserve District Loan association.
Rogers never batted an Me. He came
right back-to them with the state
ment that South Dakota seemed to
have the most of he wealth of the
northwest and he was surprised that
a little thing like $22,000,000 should
Some other South Dakotans agreed
with him and set out to raise it. Re
ports from all over the state coming
in here show that towns are, raising
their full quotas in a few hours' meet

they entertain a suspicion that they
are going to make North Dakota and
Montana green with envy before the
drive is through.

in the history of Hayden Brothers.
Recently the store announced that
it would operate on an eight-hour
basis, which is another adventure for
department stores. It also has met!
with the wildest desires of the man
agement and perhaps will be adopted
by other Omaha retailers.
"We believe that the added expense
will be easily overcome by the high
er efficiency ot our sales force, de
clared Joseph Hayden, president of
the store. ' "Enthusiastic salespeople
who have the welfare of their em

Indianapolis, April 14. Declaring

The telegram declares that mines in
the states of Iowa, Oklahoma, Mis

working less than half time and thai
in many mining towns large produc

Miners are leaving the mines in in

"If this exodus of miners to other
lines of employment is permitted to

Ready to Co-operate.
The committee reiterates its pfedge
of full co-operation with all agencies of
the government to the end that the
maximum coal production may result
and recognizes that the fuel ad
ministration has full and complete au
thority to regulate the coal industry
in every way. The telegram asserts
that the miners of the country stand
ready to dig all the coal that could
possibly be used by the nation and
that they are "able and eager to break
all records in coal production and
distribution if given the necessary
facilities and co-operation."
Continuing, the telegram to the
fuel administrator states:
"The best evidence of this fact is
the record production of 1917 under
the most trying circumstances. The
international, district and local or
ganizations have subscribed for ap
proximately $2,000,000 of the "three

that the outlook for an adequate coal
supply is of such grave concern that
we must, 'for the protection of the
mine workers and as a public duty,
call your attention to what we are
constrained to believe is a menace

"Almost every day coal prices are
changed in some state.. - Distributing
agencies are annulled as they exist,
or restricted or so completely
changed as to upset every stable cal
culation. Whenever the prices are
lowered in any state the operators af
fected immediately ask for a hear
ing, which invariably results In de
creased production, until the appeals
are definitely determined. When
prices are raised the coat miner
naturally feels he should receive a
proportionate amount of such in
crease. This condition has created an
unrest that nothing short of a stable,
permanent price arrangement can
satisfy. We are inclined to believe
that the stabilizing of prices for
production and every agency of dis
tribution will have to be brought
about before the coal industry can
reach that degree of efficiency neces
sary to supply the needs of the timts.
"The coal miners feel they have
not had that degree of consideration
in adjusting the affairs of the int
dustry and the promulgation of poli
cies that rightfully is theirs. There
fore, we feel it our duty to ask of
the fuel administration that a greater
degree of consideration be given the
half million of our members through
the organization's representatives in
