WASHINGTON Nov. 7. While

ana anil 'lYx.is as bring serious liny
are prepared to take drastic measures
If hhoiild heroine necess.ii y tn insure
the continuance of oil production Hint
region. The oil fields of Louisiana
and Texas have an average monthly
output of 4. U0. Oho barrels.
With the roiiKiiniption of crude pe-
troleum exceeding the production to
a considerable extent there Is urgent
necessity In the preservation of the
normal output In the Louisiana niul
Texas flehls which ate Important eon-
trihutoiH to the national production.
There are thirty distinct fields In tho
district In which the strike was culled
November 1. In these fields there are
eight hiimlreil oil and n.is companies
engaged In active work. Ninety per
rent of the production however
comes from 1" large companies. It
la the employees of the large roni-
panics t hut are least affected hy the

struck or would rtn so thin assertion
is regarded here as being exaggerated
Kven If nine thousand men could be
induced to Join the strike It Is believed
that the remaining two thousand
added to the other help which (ould
be secured would be able to keep existing-
wells In operation. If how-
ever any large proportion of the
workmen In the fields uffected should
Join the movement It would bo Im-
possible to contlnun the drilling of
new wells. This latter Is regarded as
a very Important feature of the pres-
ent situation. On tin average lfiO new
wells are completed In Louisiana anil
Texas each month. If no new' hole
should be put down during November
the I)erember production of crude oil
probably would decrease fiU per cent
even if all the old wells were kept 111
operation. Kven as It Is Louisiana
petroleum production In November Is
certain to show a decided decreuse.
Other l"iiel Scarei1.
A largo part of the petroleum pro-
duced in Louisiana and Texas Is used
after partial refining for fuel purposes
in a territory where other fuel Is dif
ficult to obtain. No small pdrtion of
llils oil Is used to propel the war craft
of the I'nited States and of Great
Hritaln. Thousands of miles of rail-
roads which are of vital service In
the conduit of the war draw upon
Louisiana and Texas territory for their
fuel oil. Owing to the particular com-
position of the petroleum In the region
affected by tho strike It Ih of great
value In the manufacture of lubricants
which are of superlative Importance to
the nation Just at this time.
l'etroleum consumptions Is exceed-
ing productions y 2 null (nit) barrels I
each month even In loulslana and
Texas anil monthly consumption Is
exceeding production hy five hundred I
thousand barrels. This had made I
necessary a heavy Increase in tho
amount of oil Imported from the Tam-
plco field In Mexico thereby tying up
a number of tank steamers which are
needed urgently to carry oil to Europe.
Importations of oil from Mexico have
Increased In tho Inst year from two
million to more than three million
barrels a month. For this reason
anything which Interferes with the do-
mestic production of petroleum Is re-
garded with unusual seriousness hy

would collapse. Many of the women
do break down anyway.
The working women there all wear
overalls and caps Just like men. Some
of them cut their hair short and
others simply pull it hack as plain as
they can. They wear no corsets for
two reasons. One is of course they
can work better and the other is that
corsets are so terribly expensive.
Wear Wooden Shoos.
The working women wear wooden
shoes as do the children. The women's
shoes arc like sabots shuped like a
shoe. Hut the children wear flat
boards hinged in the center and fitted
with ftraps to hold them on their
feet. The children go without stock-
ings except in the very cold weather.
Iast winter the schools were closed
for six weeks in Herlin because of
lack of fuel. No language except tier-
man Is taught In the schools now.
(ierman people who can speak Kng-
lish never do so. In school all refer-
ence to other countries except what
is absolutely necessary are omitted.
I have read with interest since my
return of the argument in Chicago aa
to whether the spelling-book contain-
ing the eulogy of the kaiser would be
permitted to remain intact. It makes
me laugh when I think Just how long
any book would be allowed to remain
undestroyed in the German empire
which contained the slightest compli-
mentary reference to President WM-
son. King (leorge or President I'oin-
cuire. The universities still are open hut
the students are getting a much In-
ferior grade of education I under-
stood. The best professors all have
gone to the war. Their substitutes
who are doing their best have not
tho learning nor the experience.
Only SklmnuM Milk.
I cannot understand what Germany
means. She Is permitting herself to
be drained of everything worth while
as her education the health of her
people their vitality evervtiilng.
When 1 say that the babies In Ger-
many are given all tho milk tnere is
there that is true but It Is not milk
such as we hny. Tt is -what we call
nktmmed milk. There is only about
half the nourishment necessary to
keep the babies nlive.
All babies whether their mothers
nurse them. or not. are allowed milk
until 5 n.cnths old. This Is because
the strongest mothers now have not
rtifflolent nourishment for thM- babies.
It is a terrible thing when you think
that In all tJermany probably Ihere is
hardly a mother strong enough to give
her infant all the nourishment it
More than ever now a German
mother wishes to bear seven sons for
she knows that the seventh at least
will be well taken care of.
The kaiser always Is godfather ro
the seventh son of any woman In Ger-
many. He pees that that boy-is well
taken care of. brought up well well
educated and well placed in Itfe. i
haven't any idea how many sueh boys
the kaiser now Is Interested In but
there must be a host of them.
Heavy Tnxcm Too.
In addition to the cost of living be-
ing so high the Germans are being
heavily taxed In other wave. Tos'al
cards for Instance which formerly
took a 5-pfenn!g stamp (4 pfennigs
about equal one of our cents) now
takes a 7 6 pfennig stamp. The 10-
pfcnnlg stamps have been ra'sed to
lo-pfennlgs. Train fare nil over the
empire have been raised about 10 per
cent. Omr.lbus fares have been raised
but not treet car fares.
But no person rides on street caA
now any more than ho can help be
