The Park Board will decide on the lieautification of the grounds surrounding the Municipal Auditorium next Tuesday; its first meeting since the adoption of th' budget by the city council. Fourteen thousand- dollars for improvements was included in the park board estimates and the council expected that this would be "expended on fixing up the grounds tmd beginning work on the bandstand at Lakeside park. However, all the money is likely to go Into the improvement of the grounds. According to ' Iie""S. Kerfoot, park superintendent, th plans Include the planting of teirTt res of lawn, the bringing to grade walks and possibly the installation of a ligliting system. Duo to the large amount of money spent in the construction of the Auditorium, it is the conten tion of park board members that the grounds should be made a suitable setting, with velvety lawns and fine walks and roadways, in stead of the present barren sweeps of gravel and. sand. Jt was estimated that $19,000 would be needed to construct the bandstand, and the park officials declare that it in useless to start this work until the entire amount is available.

SURPLUS SALE (Continued From Page 13) stuffs are rolling Into the quarter master s depot in San Francisco, and the heavy demand made in response to the postoffice offer is expected to exhaust the supply within a few hours. , Orders for 100 tons have been received at Fort Mason. Requisitions by postmasters for 40 tons have been checked at the depot and the supplies soon will be on tha way. . Uapid changes in plans made by the Washington authorities in tha last few days have led to the belief that the Mexican situation is responsible. Major General Charles A. Oevol, chief of the quartermaster's corps of the department of the west, yesterday received an order to stop over-the-counter sales. He interpreted his instructions to mean that sales through municipalities would bt ! stopped and that there would be no further disposition of army foods except through the postoffices. General Jievol almos.t simultaneously received a telegram ordering him to leave at once for Washington, I). C, to attend a conference August 27.

Finds Appalling Conditions By JOHV T. (International Mens Sen loo Staff t'orresiontlent. PARIS. Aug. t. America is the shining deliverer to which the fam ine-ridden peoples of Poland. Austria, Hungary and Czecho-Slovakia are looking to save them todav, declared Herbert Hoover, head of the interallied food relief commission, who has just arrived here from a tour through central Europe.X "The most appalling conditions prevail everywhere," said Hfover. "The dominant note is the Pathetic dependence upon the United States. President Wilson was right when he said that Immediate peace Is necessary to save the whole of Europe as well, possibly, as our economic future." Hoover and his party gained the impression that the millions of people throughout central Europe are in a panic of fear that the Hapsburg rule may be restored. Although the vast population of the former dual empire is on the verge of actual starvation, the people are zealously guarding tlwijt newly found liberties. v i The cry that greets every American, Hoover -(aid, is: "For God's sake do not leave us now." rOLES WAXT YEAR'S AID. In Poland the people are tilling the fields with home-made farming implements. The Poles declare that they want only one more year's as- charge and will communicate first with the various county food administrators who served both , with him and with Merxitt during the war.

It is a meeting place. Its members meet each morning and buy or - sell to each other. If one has more stock than he needs for his day's business and another has less than he jieeds, sales are made. The daily price is established by these sales. The United States Bureau of Markets furnishes this Exchange each morning with the quotations in Eastern centers. The demand for these staple commodities, butter, eggs and cheese, comes from all parts of continental United States, from the Hawaiian territory and the Philippines. During the last few years large shipments "have been made to the Orient, South America, France, Great Britain, Siberia, and toall parts of the world. 'In addition there are the supplies purchased by the Government for the Army and Navy. Now comes the great fleet to Pacific water? bringing a still greater demand. During the past six months at least 600 cars of eggs of 450 cases each, or 97,200,-000 eggs, have beenshipped out of California. Large eastern centers are still demanding California white eggs. Over two million pounds of butter have been shipped from California in the same period, .. . The prices are not alone made by local consumption, but by the world demand. During 1917 and 1918, owing to the small stocks on hand, San Francisco dealers were compelled to import large quantities of butter from Australia and the easteren states. In the countries at war. production of all foods was largely curtailed for years. Buyers from European governments are located in the United States taking our supplies and actively competing in all the markets. The smaller quantities of foods produced in Europe increases the demand. v , America has acted in the spirit of cooperation with her allies in furnishing foods. In all the history of previous wars the prices of aH commodities have risen and continued to rise until the end of thewars. Thereafter there- came the gradual reaction until after several years prices found'lower levels. It is the same now and doubtless it always will be. The butter in cold storage in the United States on August 1 st, according to the warehouses reporting to the United States Bureau of Markets, amounted to 1 24,839,792 pounds, a little over a "pound to each person. The eggs reported amounted to 7,853,288 cases of 30 dozens, or about two dozen to each person. American cheese, 62,480,162 pounds, about half a pound a person. j Large quantities of these warehouse stocks are owned by European buyers, and are awaiting exportation. , fl , ,If these stocks were suddenly consumed, the prices for these necessary foods, in season of non-production, would be very much higher than now prevail.

"It makes one's heart ache to see the misery of the people in the cities," said one member of the Hoover party. "The people are starved and listless. The whole country Is like another world, completely cut off from civilization. The people are like little children groping in the dark." The train the Hoovenjjbarty came through on had to stop every little while to take on a fresh water supply, as the locomotive boiler leaked badly. This is typical of all the rolling stock' In Austria and Hungary. HOOVER'S REPORT. Food was so scarce en route, that the Hoover party took a supply of provisions with them. When they started back to Paris Hoover gave a steward on the dining car several cans of condensed milk and a few other articles of food, ft wa necessary, however, to give him an official letter raying how the food had come Into his possession, as the oxri-cials refused to believe that a single person could come by so much foodstuffs rightfully. Hoover was tired, dirty and disheveled from his long journey when he arrived here, but plunged at once Into his report, which will be one of the most sensational documents of its kind ever written. In addition to the scarcity of food and clothing, the- lack of coal is threatening all of the industries In central Kurope, the Hoover- part said. The commissioners visited the marekt places and inquired into every strata of life. At one place in Poland a Pole who had lived in Detroit spoke to Hoover.

The amendments provide $5000 -fine or two years' imprisonment, or both, for hoarders or profiteers in necessities of Mfe, and bring within the scope of the law wearing apparel, food containers, fertilizers and agricultural Implements. The committee decided to elirnin-' ate from the bill its exemption of retailers doing business of $100,000 or less, .and recommendations for price fixing by the federal government. These provisions had been objected to by Palmer as threaten ing the efficiency of the law and raising obstacles to its early passage by Congress. Reiterating that profiteering is responsible for the high cost of living. Senator Walsh of Massachusetts this afternoon introduced in the Senate a measure which would re-fiuire the President to lay before tho Senate all information concerning Income tax returns of corporations and Individuals, and information concerning government contracts with firms that had interested parties employed by the government.
