W. D. January, serving a 15
year term in the McAlester peni-
tentiary for the killing of George
Keck some years ago, was given
a Christmas reprieve by Gov. Wil-
liams, yesterday. He will be re-
leased from the penitentiary on
the 24th. and come home and visit
his family until January 6th,
when he will be expected to return
to McAlester. He was given the
same kind of a reprieve in 1917,
having made an excellent record.
There is a hope expressed by his
friends that in a few months he
will be given a pardon parole.

towards the large deficit in the an-

has part in that deficit; it should
be made up and sent this week. As
the Board has under consideration
plans that, if carried out, will be
greatly to the advantage of our
work here, both for the University
and the town, it is immediately to
our interest to encourage the
members of the board to believe
t hat we are worthy their thought
and care. Let us "give till it
hurts," that they may see that we
arc as much interested in our lo-
cal success as are they.

A food map of Europe today shows
not a single country In which the fu-
ture does not hold threat of serious
difficulties and only a small part which
is not rapidly approaching the famine
point. With the exception of the
Ukraine only those countries which
have maintained marine commerce
have sufficient food supplies to meet
actual needs until next harvest, and
even in the Ukraine, with stores accu-
mulated on the farms, there is famine
In the large centers of population.
Belgium and northern France, as
well as Serbia, appear on the hunger
map distinct from the rest of Kurope
because they stand in a different rela-
tion from the other nations to the peo-
ple of the United States. America has
for four years maintained the small
war rations of Belgium and northern
France and is already making special
efforts to care for their increased
ifter-the-war needs, which, with those
if Serbia, must be included in this
plan, are urgent In the extreme and
mist have immediate relief.
The gratitude of the Belgian nation
for the help America has extended to
iier during the war constitutes the
strongest appeal for us to continue our
work there, vl'be moment the German
armies withdrew from her soil and she
was established once more In her own
seat of government the little nation's
first thought was to express her grati-
lude to the Commission for Relief In
Belgium for preserving the lives of
millions of her citizens.
Germany, on the other hand, need
not figure in such a map for Ameri-
cans because there is no present Indi-
cation that we shall be called 011 at all
to take thought for the food needs of
Germany. Germany probably can care
for her own food problem If she Is
given access to shipping and is enabled
to distribute food to the cities with
dense populations, which are the trou-
England, France, the Netherlands
and Portugal, all of which have been
maintained from American supplies,
have sufficient food to meet immediate
needs, but their fututre presents seri-
ous difficulties. The same is true of
Spain and (lie northern neutral coun-
tries—Norway, Sweden and Denmark
—whose ports have been open and who
have been able fo draw to some degree
upon foreign supplies.
Most of Ilussia Is already in the
throes of famine, and 40,000,000 people
there are beyond the possibility of
help. Before another spring thou-
sands of them inevitably must die.
This applies as well to Poland and
practically throughout the Baltic re-
gions, with conditions most serious in
Bohemia, Serbia, Roumania and
Montenegro have already reached the
fnmine point and are suffering a heavy
toll of death. The Armenian popula-
tion is falling each week as hunger
takes Its toll, and in Greece, Albania
and Roumania so serious are the food
shortages that famine is near. Al-
though starvation is not yet Imminent,
Italy, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Tur-
key are in the throes of serious strin-
In order to fulfill America's pledge
ip world relief we will have to export
every ton of food which can be han-
dled through our ports. This means at
the very least a minimum of 20,000,000
tons compared with 6,000,00(1 tons pre-
war exports and 11,820,000 tons ex
ported last year, when we were bouni.

If we fail to lighten the black spots
on ihe hunger map or If we allow any
portions to become darker the very
peace for which we fought and bled
will be threatened. Revolt and anarchy
Inevitably follow famine. Should this
happen we will see in other parts of
Europe a repetition of the Russian de-
bacle and our flght for world peac«
will have been in vain.
