TRUMAN H. NEWBERRr UNITED STATES GIVES LIMIT Suggests That. Europeans Live Within Their Incomes and Increase Their Production as Much as Possible, in Blunt Statement. Washington, Jan. 31.—Europe,-, in so far as the United .States government is concerned, must rely upon her I own .resources In retrieving financial ' equilibrium. This iras the interpretation here generally of the letter Secretary of the Treasury Glass has sent to a committee of tlie Chamber of Commerce of the United States, which sought a government expression on Jjie proposed Hnternational conference of financiers and commercial leaders to discuss reconstruction problems; In a; blunt" statement of the facts as he sees them, Mr. Glass declared "the American' government has done all that It believes advisable and practicable to aid Europe. The conference," he added, '"would serve to cause confusion and' revive hopes, doomed to disappointment, of further government loans." Does Not Oppose Conference. The treasury department does not offer objection, Mr. Gla£/3 said, if the Chamber of. Commer.ce <# the United States, which has:charge£of-the detala of the conference,-'wishes tb name delegates to an informni;j!pnference, "provided the scope and character and limitations of such- a conference, as well as the Impossibility of United States government action, are clearly understood." .

He says thnt public opinion will he limit their imports to actual necessl- ' stirred by.tho publication of the treaty ties, foreign credits to cover adverse balances would most probably be supplied by private, investors and the de- resort to such impracticable methods as government loans and bank credits would cease. "The American people should not, in my opinion, be called upon to finance, and would not, in my opinion, respond to a demand that they finance the requirements of Europe in so far as they result from the failure to take necessary-steps for the rehabilitation of credit. \ - i "There is no more logical or-practi- j cat step toward solving their own re- i construction problems than for the al- ! lies to give value to their indemnity claims against Germany by reducing these claims to a determinate amount which Geriuany, may reasonably bj expected to pay.

To make a non-freezable drinking fountain for the hen house the fql- lowing material will be -needed : One soap or cracker box; a lantern; two galvanized Iron pails, about two-quart capacity; and enough heavy asbestos paper to line box 'with a double thickness to keep in the heat generated by the lantern and for fire prevention. The box must be large enough to hold the lantern .and two pails. Two holes are cut in the top of box, one' at each end, allowing the pails to slnU into the box with only ajiout 3 inches protruding; inside the box. between the pails, the lantern should be placed. The heat will be deflected by the lantern top and the 1 box around the water pails, thus keeping the water a few degrees., above freezing even in coldest weather. The box is placed on a platform.
