That is to say, Von Jagow admits that war was chosen by Germany as an alternative to. an international conference, which would have ing .which .'declares actors' and motion picture-producers as- engaged in productive.' employment with, the attitude of ..General' Crowder u'poo,.the question oCgivfng mine ".workers , a deferred clakaifjcation. ,, From : the outset he to' ihe' ruling that men engaged"in. the production of coal and eoke^can-- 'not,' be granted deferred cfajsincation as a class, thereby placing upon; the local boards, the whole responsibility of determining thc degree ofjiability for'Vservice of the registrants, no matter .what their occupation. al boards generally having interpreted 'their function to* he to provide as'many men for'military service as are physically fit, and in the absence of ^specific, directions to .give, pref er- -ence-:: to -aBy-"Jn*iistrial classification, particularly as may relate to mining and the manufacture of coke, have 'demurred to making wholesale deferred classification of coal plbyes.

How do these confessions come to be made? . Dr. Mnhlon's Comtricnce. . With Dr. Muhton it was evidently a case of conscience. When the war began he resigned his position a* a director of Krupp's Works, at Essen, and retired to his Switzerland, near Berne. There be lived a retired life. After a time reports began to circulate of statements which he had made to visitors, and he was put under the surveillance of spies from thn German embassy at Berne. Later, a member from the Socialist Party in the Reichstag -vis- ported that a retired Krupp official living in Switzerland "claimed to be in possession of certain secrets seriously compromising the honor of the German government in the matter of the responsibility for the war." The nev/spaper» began to hint that this official was out of his mind. Dr. jluhlon's statements were then published, either as a vindication of him WANTED -- TOUR buin«a. RENDINE'S.

He confessed to Herr Wolff what he had done. "It was impossible," the editor says, 'to convince him by any logic or on any grounds of reason that- his action was wrong, sensoless, or harmful.

Of course sugar, flour, and flour substitutes, the quantity is regulated, but we have been taking care of you according to the rulings of the Food Administrators .for Fayette and Westmoreland Counties. Our prices speak for themselves. They are higher than a year ago, two years ago, we admit that, but we insist that they are not unreasonably high. We insist that they are lower than most competitors throughout the sections where we operate.
