Washington, Feb. 23. There were
indications today that the price of the
1918 wheat crop would be increased
soon by presidential proclamation.
The price of $2 per bushel set by the
food control law is construed to be the
minimum and that the president has
authority to increase the price if he
considers, conditions warrant his do doing

Congress to raise the price, some pro proposing

A Port in France. (Correspond (Correspondence

end of last year troops landed more
regularly and quickly than supplies,
so that.it was sometimes feared it
would be necessary to draw tempor temporarily

the base is now in the position of
being able to handle more tonnage
than is at present coming to it, either
in the form of supply or troop ships.
The capacity of the port would,
however, be almost reached with the
completion of the 'docks and store
houses now under construction if it
were not for far-reaching engineer engineering

The American authorities early
foresaw that even comprehensive dock
enlargements would inevitably result

outlet were not arranged for the in increasing

when ihey are needed, and which even

Therefore, while the railroad tracks
at the port itself are vastly more
numerous than they were six months
ago the American engineers have
conceived a plan whereby a vast tract
of land three or four miles back of
the port has been taken over, and is
being developed coincidently with the
port itself. '-,
On either side of a huge basin into
which ships can if necessary be towed
and unloaded,' dozens of parallel spur
tracks are being laid. They will serve
a dual purpose, for cars either can
be filled from barges and vessels
brought into the basin, or cars loaded
at the port itself can quickly and eas easily,
ily, easily, be hauled to the spurs and there
made up into trains.
The Americans already have taken
over on lease from the French certain
lines of railroad which will be fed
from the yards of the port and of its
complementary station in the rear.
They are increasing constantly the
efficiency and capacity of the port it itself

The American plan which envisages

docks and store houses, is not original

of what' the English have done at an another

the daily output of merchandise from
about 200 cars or less to more than
700. This they have been able to do
by laying out huge yards to the rear
of the actual port to avoid congestion
and to facilitate making up trains.
The steady development of the
" American port has made it necessary
to rearrange the manner in which the
work is done. Last July a compara comparatively

to superintend and manage the un unloading

Today the work has grown so that it

CONSERVATION Of
FOOD COMPULSORY

In the Opinion of a Member of Con Congress

a Bill to that Effect
(Associated Press)
Washington, Feb. 23. Compulsory
food conservation is necessary, in the
opinion of a member of the House ag agricultural
ricultural agricultural committee, which submit submitted
ted submitted a report on the bill giving the
president power to regulate public
eating houses and the distribution
and manufacture of foodstuffs. The
bill doesn't directly affect households,
appeals to save food having met with

of understanding fails to respond to
the call made for patriotic duty."
SERGEANT MARSHALL
MADE A GOOD SPEECH
At 7:30 Friday evening, it looked
like Sergeant Marshall would not
have an audience at the bandstand, as
a considerable shower fell at that
time. Altho this kept a good many
away, when 8 o'clock struck, there
was a good-sized crowd on the square,
and by the time the speaker was fair fairly
ly fairly started there were nearly a thou thousand
sand thousand people to hear him, a good many
coming in' their cars from out in tht
country.
Sergeant Marshall is a well set-up
young soldier, and in his neat khaki
uniform he particularly impressed our
people, few of whom had ever seen a
man from the fighting front before.
On the platform with him were Mayor
Chace, Messrs. L..W. puval, W. .T,
Gary and Miss Porter with her high
school singers. The exercises began
with "America," beautifully rendered
by Miss Porter and her class, after
which Mr. Duval introduced the young
soldier, who immediately began his
talk.
Sergeant Marshall is not an orator
and didn't try to make an oration. He
had a plain, stright-forward talk,
which he delivered as a man would
in making a statement to his friends.
We do not think we ever saw any
other man Who has spoken from that
bandstand receive as close attention
as he did. He brought the war home
to the people, and his words went
home, and those who were there went
away realizing what Amreica is up
against as they never did before. His
talk lasted almost an hour and a half,
during which time no one made : a
move to leave.
At the conclusionof the address,
Miss Porter and her class rendered
the first two verses of the Star
Spangled Banner, after which the au audience
dience audience dispersed. As the speaker
came down from the stand, scores
came forward to shake hands with
him.
Sergeant Marshall left this morn morning

speak tonight. He truly has a mes message

they are listening wherever he goes.

says: "On a battlefield in France a
stalwart, promising young man from
our neighboring city of Ocala laid
down his life. A bullet from the lines
of the Hunsfound his- breast and
Lieutenant Wiley H. Burford was no
more. To the Hun it was merely an
enemy less across No Man's Land but
to us it brings nearer and more
graphically the realization that Hun
bullets are finding their way into the
windows of our homes, t striking our

Washington's birthday meant more
to the nation and the world this year
than usual. George Washington was
one ; of ; the strongest and most even
characters of history. ? It is noticeable
that as. time goes on his fame does ndt
diminish and it does not increase. He
was one, of the few great men whose
greatness was so plain to his contem contemporaries
poraries contemporaries that it did not acquire any
falserproportions f rom posterity. A
weaker, or a selfish man in his place
would have; changed -history; While
he belongs first to America, his mem-
ory is also universal property and
insignificant indeed is that part of the
world that does not claim some share
of it.

Truth and falsehood are exactly

What change has come in women's

In these last woeful days?
What face is this that critics claim
Is seen upon our ways?
The "Knitter's Face?" What term i3
this?
How may it be defined?
What force has moulded flesh and
blood;
What passions of the mind?
Should one describe the "Knitter's
Face t
He'd call 'it first of all, y
A serious face, with steadfast chin,
Firm moulded as a wall;
Brows tensely drawn, eyes downward
- bent,
Lips puckered close with care,
Concentrated on the pressing task
She's pledged herself to bear.
Behind this modern knitter's face,
What thoughts arise and surge,
With aching hearts, what bitter
griefs,
What tears forbid to urge!
No more than soldier in the trench
May she lament or moan;
The "Knitter's Face" is a fighter's

Although she fight at home.

She occupied the back suite on the

young sculptor whom she did not even
know by sight. The rooms above her

an incipient dramatist; the floor be below,

wife. On the very topmost floor were
little skylight rooms where several
birds of passage lived, students for the
most part.
The only personal niall she received
was from Terry. He usually wrote
once a week, a brief. Jerky, boyish
epistle, full of complaints, football,

"Miss Carrington, you'll break down
if you don't stop working so hard,"
Peggy said at the office, as Virginia
waited to see the buyer for the art
goods department.
Virginia went home that day feeling
rather puzzled. Was that what was
the matter with her? She studied her
face In the mirror carefully, and then
thoughtfully opened a letter she had
picked up from the table in the lower
hall. It was an invitation from the
Chaplns, for her to visit them on their
houseboat over the "week-end.
She left that Friday night for the
shore with a feeling of elation, as
though she had escaped from a mild
sort of prison. On the front steps she
passed Wells Lewis. He was person personally

surreptitious groceries that Virginia
knew represented llght housekeeping.
Terry arrived at Mrs. Flnnegan's at
nine o'clock. Lewis heard the alterca altercation

to explain his relationship to Miss
Carrington and his rights and priv

take no chances.

Terry accepted with alacrity. He
not only came up, but he pitched Into
the remains of Lewis supper and
cleared it up to the last crumb.
Lewis listened" sympathetically to
everything, even when Terry told how
he had been "bounced" from the
"prep" school. There had been a lit little

pigs hidden all around the assembly
hall on a certain evening when the
younger boys were excluded from a

"Some fellows can't take a Joke,"
Terry concluded, scathingly. "I'm glad
to be out of it. Pm sixteen and I ought
to be at work Instead of letting a girl

get me a Job before she gets back."
Lewis considered the matter. He
liked the boy. It was the age of
specialization.
"Til helD you on your 'math at

room for you downstairs. I'd like It if
you'd bunk up here with me, old man,

Terry loved him for that phrase,
"old man." He. went to -work the next
morning, and walked in on Virginia

listened to his explanations in silent
amazement.
"Why, Terry, I have only a' bowing
acquaintance with this person."
"Well, well fix that," replied Terry,
comfortably. "I'm going to share his
room, and pay my bit, so you'd better
