Suggestions that immigration be suspended completely were opposed by the commissioner on the ground that it would have an “injurious effect upon our efforts to further American commerce and enterprise | in foreign countries.” Continuance I of war-time passport vise regula-j tions and assignment of immigration ; bureau representatives at consu-; lar offices to aid in excluding un-! desirables was urged instead. | Only two aliens were excluded j from the United States during the fiscal year on anarchistic grounds, ent high cost of living and the shortage of commodities until the widespread social and industrial unrest has disappeared and the war-shattered economic machinery has been put in order, according to Charles A. McCurdy, Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food. Mr. McCurdy expressed this* view during an interview with a correspondent of The Associated Press, and added that he was not particularly optimistic over the chances of any marked betterment of the situation in the near future. “We have Bolshevism at one end of the world and widespread strikes at the other,” said Mr. McCurdy, “‘and not until society resumes it® normal course can we right economic conditions. “It is very difficult to prophesy regarding the food situation of tho future in view of the fact that the whole economic structure of th© ****************** ♦    * *_    J UHT    A    < COMPARISON    * ♦      * ♦    The    Daily    Oklahoman    today * ♦ was eight Pages, the same size * as the Evening News.
