CUT 80PER CENT
Reduction Necessitated by
Lack of Funds; Work of
Placing Soldiers Will
Washington, March 13. Reduc
tion of 80 prr cent in the force of
ilic I'nited States employment serv
ice, effective March 22 ,was an
nounced today by Director General
Ueiismore. This war made neces
sary, it was explained, by the failure
of congress to provide funds to con
:inue the work. Mr. Densuiore said
the number of employment offices
would be reduced from 780 to 56,
but that none of the work in direct
connection with the return of sol
diers and sailors to civilian employ-
- 'iient would be discontinued.
"The reduction of- the employment
service cuts it to the bone." said
Dr. Densmore. "The special work in
placing engineers and other highly
trained men, persons handicapped
by old age and physical disability,
vocational -guidance for juveniles,
the trade tests for skilled workers
p.nd the training of employment ex
aminers must all cease March 22.
Skeleton Organization Maintained.
"The maintenance of a skeleton
administrative organization in
Washington and the states and the
continuance of camp representatives,
soldiers' bureaus and the clearance
system, together with 56 branch of-
- f ices in strategic industrial centers,
will, however, permit the directing
of national employment work by the
employment service and enable it to
icsume full operation when congress
Seceretary Wilson, in a statement
tonight explaining the plan for re
taining a skeleton organization of
the service, disclosed that the ser
vice could not draw on President
Wilson's $100,000,000 war emergency
fund because practically all of it has
been spent or pledged.
After the urgency deficiency liill
vas killed in the filibuster in Hje
rioting hours of the last session of
the senate, Secretary Wilson appeal
ed to the president. He received
:his reply by radio from the presi
dential ship, George Washington at
"Regret nothing so much as the
discontinuance of the work of the
rmployment service bureau, but the
fact is that including pledges made
inv fund is practically exhausted.
What remain would not suffice to
naintain the bureau and to my great
rief, I see na escape from disband
incnt. I hope that it will bq pos
vlvle to keep a skeleton organiza
tion." Service to be Reorganized.
Secretary Wilson announced that
.lie employment service would- be
reorganized on a basis that would
enable it to utilize the voluntary
services of individuals and organiza
tions to continue the work of find
ing places for returned soldiers and
"Fortunately," said Secretary Wil-
on "the employment service in car
rying out the work entrusted to its
charge had organized 1.57S com
munit yboard and nearly 2.000
bureaus" for returning soldiers with
out expense to the government and
had secured the co-operation of the
council of national defense, the state
and municipal employment agencies,
the five" great welfare associations
engaged in war work, and other
church and welfare organizations in
locating work for demobilized sol
diers and war workers. The hearty
co-operation of those agencies has
been assured in tiding over the in
terim until the reconvening of con
gress. "We shall maintain our represen
tatives in the demobilization camps
and shall keep right on getting the
records of soldiers returning on the
transports and forwarding them to
the bureaus for returning -soldiers
and will maintain an administrative
organization in Washington and
each of the states to direct the work
and about 50 employment officers'
in the principal industrial centers. -
"Inasmuch as the deficiency itcm
passed the house unanimously and
was unanimously reported by- the
appropriation! committee in the sen
ate, we are confident that as soon as
congress meets sufficient funds will

Unemployment Increasing. f.
While Mr. Densmore was sending
orders today to federal directors of
the service for the states, reports
reaching headquarters here showed
tlijre had been a heavy increase in
unemployment during the past five
days. 69 per cent of the reporting
industrial centers having large labor
surpluses. This fact, together with
the fact that the work of the 2,000
bureaus for returning soldiers is
closely-allied with that of. the ser
vice, led the director-general to pre
diet that most of the 700 employ--ment
bureau would be maintained

To End Tieup of Traffic
In Strike-Bound Ha'rbor
Officials of Army, Navy and Shipping Board Decide To
Commandeer Fleet of Boats at New York Sufficient
To Restore Normal Conditions and Operate Them
With Union Crews.
New-York, March 13. Commandeering by the govern
ment of a fleet of harbor craft sufficient to restore traffic in
New York's strike-bound harbpr to normal conditions, has
been decided by officials of the army, navy and United Spates
shipping board, according to apparently authentic reports
If the boats are taken over by the government agencies,
they will' be manned by union crews operating under a basic
eight-hour day on the wage scale recently agreed upon with
the railroad administration. ,
Officials of the New York Boatload administration wage scale and
working conditions into effect and
negotiations are progressing favor
ably toward complete and satisfac
tory settlement which will restore
normal conditions and serve the in
terest of the general public."
The difficulty in obtaining coil
for army .and navy ships was solved
when representatives of both
branches of the service chartered 12
boats from a private firm to carry
coal to these vessels. Union men
agreed to operate the boats on con
dition that they were used solely
for government work.
Secretary of the Navy Daniels Jo
day directed Rear Admiral Usher,
commandant of the third naval dis
trict, not to allow the use of navy
tugs' to tow barges for private firms.
This was in answer to an appeal by
Frank Hedley, general manager of
the Interborough Rapid Transit
company, that naval tugs be permit
ted to tow the barges of two private
firms engaged in supplying the
company with fuel.
Owner's association whose refusal
to grant boat workers' -demands af
ter the workers had refused to abide
by a national war labor board award,
precipitated the strike, asserted that
the B. McLain Transportation com
pany already had been informed by
government officials that its boats
would be commandeered unless they

There is a rumor that next to the
long waiting y list of prospective
members of the Athletic club, the
next longest waiting list is the wait
ing list of waiters, waiting to be al

It's because a charge of 10 cents
per plate is added for the waiter to
the bill for each meal served in the

Girl Tells Weird
Story, to Which Mother
Soon Puts the Finish
The small figure of Ruth Peter
son, aged U, 2216 Capitol avenue,
huddled against a building at Four
teenth and Douglas streets at a late
hour last night, attracted the atten
tion of Police Officer Franks. He
paused and watched her.
Suddenly she stepped up to two
women standing nearby. "Won't you
please give me a dime, so I can go
to a movie show," she pleaded in
a high treble voice:
"Why don't you get it from your
mother," inquired one of the wo
men. ' . ,
"Oh, my mother ran away from
me three years ago," was the reply.
"Wpn't you be my mother and take
me home?" pleadingly.
The officer here interfered.
At the police station Ruth told an
interested group of hardships she
had incurred since her mother had
deserted her, of how" she really
didn't know what her own name
was, nor where she lived. ,She even
cried -a little to impress her audi
ence and "they were duly impressed.
The illusion was short lived, how
ever, for in the middle of her tale a
stout woman entered, announcing
herself as Ruth's' mother. '
"She got out of school this after
noon by telling the teacher she was
sick," explained Mrs. Peterson. "She
has never been away from home so
long before in her life, and wewere
nearly frantic searching for her.
"She'll never do this again," she
added, tucking the small daughter
under her arm as they left the( sta
Bandmaster in Court.
Kenosha,' Wis., March 13. (Spe
cial Telegram.) Bernard M. Aqui
line, one of Wisconsin's best known
bandsmen and composers, is de
fendant in a divorce suit filed today.
Aquiline and the story., of his rela
tions with "the other woman" deco
rated the police blotter a year ago,
when he was arrested at Broken
Bow, Neb., and brought back to
Kenosha to answer charges of infi
delity. The ctiarges brought against him
at that time are again detailed by
his wife in her divorce suit.
When Aquiline was brought back
from Nebraska he pleaded for. a
chance to enter the army, asserting
that he would become a bandmaster
in the service, but he sever got into
a uniform. His wife says she does
not know his present whereabouts.
Plan Eig Purchases
Washington, March 13. Car and
locomotice builders were told by
Director General Hines today that
means would be found to finance
the railroads and contemplated big
purchases of rolling stock. He em
phasized that there was no cause
for alarm among- industries affected.
Municipal Coal Yard'
Controversy Airecl at
Hearing in Lincoln
Lincoln, Neb., March 13. (Spe
cial.) Several Omaha coal dealers
and City Commissioner Dan Butler
of Omaha appeared before the mu
nicipal affairs committee of the state
this afternoon to thresh out the mer
it? and demerits of an amendment
offered by the coal men to S. F.
165, known as the Omaha charter
bill, which would put the municipal
coal yard on a self-supporting basis,
limit deliveries to 500 pounds each,
and make it purely a benevolent in
stitution. They claim that prices
quoted by the municipal yard do not
at present include the '"cost of de
liveries or clerk hire or other expen
ses which the coal man is compelled
to carry in his prices.
Commissioner Butler said that the
coal yards had never yet cost the
city any money, though he admitted
that coal had been hauled in city
trucks and that clerics in pay of the
city had taken care of the coal yard
records. He also charged that a
price combination existed among the
larger coal dealers of Omaha. This
statement was denied by, the coal
dealers, who declared an ' itemized
statement-of the coal business at the
city hall, which had been denied to
them would bear out their state
ment that they were working at a
disadvantage with the city yard, the
expense of which was largely taken
out of the taxpayer's pockety.
Organized to Combat
League as Projected
Washington, March 13. Prelimin
ary plans for the formation of a na
tional nonpartisan organization de
signed to keep the American people
better informed as to events at the
peace conference and to oppose ec
ceptancevof the constitution of the
league of nations as rfow drawn were
made at a conference today between
Senators Reed of Missouri, demo
crat, and Borah of Idaho, and Pojn
dexter of Washington, republicans,
and George Wharton Pepper, a law
yer, of Philadelphia.
After the conference it was an
nounced that Henry Watterson, for
mer publisher of the Louisville
Courier-Journal, would be president
of the organization with Mr. Pepper
as directing supervisor.
' One purpose of the organization,
it was explained, would be the co
ordination of various local bodies
that have been formed over the
country in opposition to the league.
Present plans call for establishment
of a speakers' bureu and the con
ducting of an extensive campaign of
publicity throughout the country.
Financial Society of Nations
Only Means to Balance Fu
ture Budgets, Says Min
ister of Finance.
Paris, March' 13. Louis . Klotz,
minister of finance, began his eager
ly awaited speech in the chamber
of deputies today on the financial
situation by denying that he had
made the statement that France had
become richer since the war. From
the fiscal point of view there had
been more resources created, the
minster conceded, but it would be
absurd to say that any country with
departments in such a condition as
the invaded departments of France
had become richer.
The vearly budget. M. Klotz an
nounced, would be three or four
times greater than before'the war,
the deticit to meet being 21,750,000,
000 francs, ($4,350,000,000).
War Expenditures $25,000,000,000.
M. Klotz gave some striking fig-
ures oi war expenditures. lie saia
that more than 39,000,000,000 francs
was spent for artillery and 11.000,
000,000 francs for the pay of troops,
The total expenditures of the min
istry of war were liy,tK)0,000,UUU
francs, while the navy department
spent only 6!000.000,000 francs, a
total of $25,000,000,000.
According to M. Klotz. it would
be relatively easy to meet the 10,000,-
000,000 franc deficit of 1919 by in
crease in indirect taxes, an income
tax, receipts from the liquidation of
war stocks and a revision of the law
governing the transportation of
troops over French railroads by
charging the allies for transporta
tion of troops over French railroads
by charging the allies for transpor
tation as he French are charged.
The railroad deficit, the minister
said, would be 4,000,000,000 francs.
Concerning the tax on capital
proposition, M. Klotz said the.
French capitalist taxpayer would
not be called to pay one cent of ad
ditional taxes until Germany's in
demnity figures to France were set
tled unon and puaranteed. But
even should Germany pay complete
ly ior carnages ana tne.restoranon
of the devastated provinces M.
Klotz said this would not balance!
future budgets after 1919. The tax

The plant is now being built, located in one of the world's greatest oil . districts, with all material
arranged for and the- contractor's promise to have it turning out the profits for the stockholders by April
10th, in accordance with their contract. 1
There is one refinery nowjn Burkbumett, operating very profitably, and one other being built, while
there is crude oil production sufficient to justify twenty br thirty more, but locations are hard to obtain,
.6wing to the high values of land for drilling, acreage being worth approximately $20,000.00 per acre.
Through cash deposited in the bank and credit arrangements, the organizers
assured the completion of the plant before a share of stock was offered to the "
public, thus showing their unbounded faith in the merits of the enterprise.
To aid in meeting their financial commitments there have been placed in our hands in trust 5,000
shares of this stock to be sold at the par Value of $10.00 per share. Within thirty days from date of
firing the boilers this stock should have an active market value on the local exchanges of very material
increase over par, based on earning power and small capitalization. ,

N " Oil is one of the greatest f ditune building industries in the world today, and the surest and largest
J profits in the oil industry are in refining. There is not an oil refinery-in Texas tdday that is not earning
good profits. An investment such as is offered in the Inter-Ocean is safe because the oil refining busi
ness has proved o be a sure money-maker for practically every concern engaged in it.
This Company should be a money-maker because a plentiful supply of crude oilfor refining has
been arranged for, and every element necessary to the successful operation of a refinery has been con
sidered. Profits of refineries in this district1 are attested by the fact that the stock in refineries having
been in operation three or four years, sell as high as $35.00 on the original $1.00 invested.
. Look at these cold, 'unadulterated facts and figures on the won
derful profits which statistics show have been earned through the
refining of crude oil, not foj a month or so, but year after year:
THE ANGLO AMERICAN COMPANY during 1912
earned over 100 on its capital stock , of
$3,000,000.00. - "
THE OHIO OIL COMPANY in 1913 earned 152 on
its $15,000,000.00 capital. '
SOLAR REFINING COMPANY in 1913 earned over
184 net on $500,000.00 capital.
THE SAPULPA REFINERY COMPANY has averaged
over 130 annually since 1909. - -
COSDEN & COMPANY in 1914 made over $550,000.00
net profit from refineries which cost in total less
an original $100.00 share sold for $8,000.00. , than $500,000.00. 1
To every class of people the lure of this stock should be equally compelling. To those of large
means it will safely conserve their funds an3 largely enhance their value. To the salaried man, or man
of limited means, it is the OPPORTUNITY which heretofore has retreated before hi mas he plodded on.
To the wage earner it is nothing less than economic salvation.
