COMPEL SAMMIES TO
BE VALETS, CHARGE
WASHINGTON. D. C. Pec. 14.
In a sensational address on the
house floor late today Represen
tative Miller of Washington, just
returned from the fighting front,
charged that there is widespread
snobbishness by American of
ficers and a general lack of
democratic spirit among the
American privates, according
to Miller, who said he saw them,
poliBhed the shoes Of officers.
"No man would ask an American
soldier to be his body servant
were he fit to be an officer." Mil
ler shouted. "Officers who are
too proud to associate with their
men are unfit."
Applause swept the, house at
Millers-plea for a democratic re
form of the American army.
