How ti Raise Enough Money to Coyer Deficit
of $370,000,000.
Washington, Dec. 26 Issuance
of $125,000,000 of Panama Canal
bonds, increased income and estate
taxes, additional , taxes on whis
key, beer, cigarettes and bottled,
waters and high tariff on coffee
and tea are proposed in a tenta
tive program to be considered by
the House ways and means com
mittee when it begins framing
revenue legislation to meet the
prospective deficit of $370,000,000
at the end of thf next "fiscal year.
The committee will undertake
its task soon after Congress re
convenes next week Members al
ready have conferred with Sec
retary McAdoo and the problem
has been given serious attention
by the President.
The President is understood to
oppose bond issues except for ex
traordinary emergencies. To
square with this view, Democratic
leaders in the House propose to
put the issue of Panama Canal
bonds directly on the military ex
penditures on account of Mexico.
Speaker Clark believes that an
extra session will be necessary to
consider revenue measures unless
it is possible to meet the deficit
by a bond issue and income tax
increases. Other Democrats hope,
however, that the problem can be
solved by pressing through at
the short session a complete pro
gram, including the omnibus re
venue bill in addition to provision
for the bond issue and increases
in the income tax.

The Teutonic Allies are favor
able to an immediate meeting of
delegates from the belligerent
states at some neutral point in
order that an exchange of views
with regard to peace may becarr
ried out.
This has been declared by tbe
German government in replying
to the recent note of President
Wilson suggesting that the bel-
ligerent nations make known
their basis for peace. It is an-
nounced in the note that Ger
many is of the opiriiqn that the
work of preventing future wars
can be begun only after the end
of the present struggle, but that
then Germany will be ready to
collaborate with the United
States "in this exalted task."
Nothing has yet come through
to indicate what will be the ten
or of the replies of the Entente
Allies to President Wilson's sug
gestion, and, so far as is known
none of them has yet given an
answer to the announcement
made to them in the note of the
Teutonic Allies that Germany is
ready to discuss peace.
Meantime, the Premiers of
Great Britain's colonies have
been urged to attend at an early

meetings of the war cabinet. At
these meetings, says the British
Colonial Secretary, "urgent
questions affecting the prosecu
tion of the war, possible condi
tions on which, in agreement
with our Allies, we could . assent
to its termination, and problems
which would then immediately
arise," are to be discussed

Deve!c:sflt b Cheese fiakW in Nertli Caro
lina- tortanrties for Toons Ben.
Nine cheese factories have been
established in the western part of
North Carolina since the work
was begun in 1914, This is one
of the most surprising develop
ments of the whole woik of the
Animal Industry of the North
Carolina Experiment Station.
Before the work was undertaken,
the whole State of North Caro
lina was producing only about
30,000 pounds of cheese and this
was made in the homes at differ
ent ports of the State! The fac
tories which have been establish
ed are now making more than
.hat and at a good profit.
The little factory at Grassy
:reek made 12.356 pounds oi
cheese from July 13, 1915, to
January 14, 1916. The Cove
Creek factory made almost 15,000
juuuds up iu ihe same "date.

The UrriKMs in these cheese
communities are also building
s i os and spring houses. The
men oi the Extensive Service are
giving them as much assistante
as ,is possible but one of the
greatest difficulties connected
with the work is in finding men
sufficiently trained to man the
factories after they have been
established. In most cases . it
has been necessary to take some
man in thee neighborhood and
train him in the worlf. This
naturally takes much of the time
of the specialists in charge of the
work and it cannot go forward
very fastly until the supply of
men to run them exceeds the sup
ply of factories.
jSS!z'5gt.14w th? Animal In
dustfyBepartinTatr oT71sri8l
College has now organized a
course of special instruction in
cheese making, the object of
which is to assist those wish to
prepare themselves for positions
in cheese factories. Th; work
will cpnsts,t principally of instruc
tian. in cheese making and cheese
factory management. Twelve
factories have been built in the
last eighteen months and more
are now under course of construe
tiou, so a good opprotunity is
open for young men in these
cheese factory sections.
The course thvs season wil
open on January 16, 1917, and
close on March 3. 1917. It is in
tended to give instruction to any
one wishing to study the making
of cheese and cheese factory
management, and is limited to
students 16 years of age and old
er. It is expected that the course
will be very valuable to those
who are thinking of building a
cheese factory whether they rre
to have active charge of it or not.

Last Friday when the Cress
school near Grace Church, of
which Miss Lillian Miller is prin
cipal, closed quite an interesting
program was rendered Among
the items on the program were
the following: Vocal and instru

leaux, a Christmas tree and treat
for all the pupils The building
was beautifully decorated and at
the last Floyd ieSperman, acting
as Santa Glaus, came in and dis
tributed gifts to all. Miss
Miller is due much credit for the
perfect training of the children
and the very interesting enter
tainment given. Miss Miller
seems to be the right teacher in
the right place and is much liked
by ail the pupils and patrons of
the school. Quite a large crowd
was present and enjoyed the oc
casion very much.
