Y. M. C. A. WAR WORK'
EXTOLLED BY PERKINS.
New York, May 6. George W.
Perkins, chairman of the finance
committee of the Young Men's
Christian association, made public
here tonight his report as investi
gator into theefficiency and service
of the organization overseas.
"The Y. M. C. A. undoubtedly
made mistakes," Mr. Perkins said.
"But what it tried to do was to
respond to every call that the army
made on it. It did not sidestep
any task that it was asked to per
form. i "That the Y. M. C. A. workers as
i a whole were brave and unselfish is
shown by the fact that 14 secre
taries were killed, and 126 others
were wounded," he declared.
i Regarding the charge of profi
teering in supplies, Mr. Perkins' re
'The statement has been fre
quently made that the Y. M. C. A.
charged higher prices for canteen
supplies than the army did. This
was true at certain periods, when
the cost of transportation was ex
ceedingly high and when it was im
possible to determine costs ac
curately. But the final results of
the Y. M. C A. canteen service
will show a substantial loss."

Newspaper Agitation Inciting
Bitterness Toward U. S.;
Wilson Denounced . as
ypocrite" and "Despot."
Tokio.'May 7. (By the Associ
ated Press) The anti-American
campaign in the Japanese press con
tinues with renewed force. No se
ricus " overt acts have been com
mitted against Americans or Amer
ican property, but evidence exists
that the newspaper agitation is in
citing popularjfeeling against Amer
ica and thus paving the way to pos
sible open demonstrations.
Representative Japanese deplore
the press campaign and have begun
to critfeise the government for its
failure to check the literary out
bursts. The participants in a mass meet
ing held Sunday, at which some
anti-American speeches were deliv
ered, announced their intention of
continuing the demonstration in
front of the American embassy. The
police, however, prevented this step.
Fear U. S. Influence.
NThe belief is expressed that the
basis for the agitation is fear of the
growing influence of the United
States in international affairs - and
that it will act as a curb on Japan's
aspirations in China and Siberia.
After declaring that renewed at
tempts for anti-Japanese legislation
on the Pacific slope indicate that the
Arnericans persecute Japan in every
thing, while wearing the mask of
liberty and fairness, the Hochi Shim
bun charges the Americans with hav
ing "incited the, Chinese to make the
secret treaties, public and also accuse
American missionaries of fomenting
the Korean insurrection. N
- Denounce Wilson.
The Torodzu Chodo says the
Americans responsible for attempts
at anti-Japanest legislation are noth
ing better than barbarians.
"Hypocrite," "despot," "trans
formed kaiser," "man with the voice
of an angel, but with ideas of the
devil" are some of the epithets ap
plied by the newspapers to Presi
dent Wilson. s . .
Today's newspapers print articles
accusing Americans and British in
China with inciting the Chinese to
the. recent Chinese-Japanese agita
tion in Peking. , v
At a meeting of the Kokuminto
party held in Osaka, a resolution
was passed declaring that recogni
tion of the Monroe doctrine by the
league of nations should be interpre
ted as recognition of Japan's pre
dominance in the far east.

assurance of Douglas- county that
Center street will be paved.
"The hauling business-by truck

said, is ready to pay its share of
building the bridge at any time.

declared that their county is able to
pay its share toward building the

Threat to Prohibit Dealing in
Futures Made by Grain Ad
" ministrator in Speech
to Chicago Board.
Chicago, May 6. Julius H. Barnes,
national wheat administrator, said
in an address today to members
of the Chicago board of trade, that

Mr. Barnes questioned frankly
whether a fluctuation in corn prices

cents followed by a quick reaction
of 5 to, 6 cents, was not a clear
indication of speculation on so large

statement that wheat was to be im

Canada. ' , '
Prices dropped 10 to 12 cents and

teners today many who lost money
in the slump. They regarded him
as one who had thrown a monkey
wrench into the machinery, al
though Mr. Barnes had given ample
warning a week or so before that
he would take just such action if
speculation in flour was not curbed.
Many members of the board pres
ent today knew the grain dictator
personally, but to more he was a
stranger. When his tall, athletic
figure appeared, a whisper went
"Why, he's young, isn't he?"
Mr. Barnes, it was admitted, is
the biggest figure in the grain trade
of the world by reason of his po

youngish look and his healthy crop
