women, who crowded about the corridors leading to the marble caucus
room as early as 8.3o o'clock. When officers Informed the crowd that
the plans had been changed and the general public would be excluded,
there were loud protests. Hundreds remained about the building, clamor

UNITED STATES ARMY
TRANSPORTS ALL NEED
MORE LIFEBOATS.
WABHLNOTON. D. C, April 23. The
startling fact was dlclced to-day that
the United Slate army traneport have
no better lifeboat equipment than had
tha Titanic when hundred of It pas
sengers went doavn to death.
Not n single ime at these transport,
which would carry the sinews of war In
time of emergency, have enougiu life
boat to save even half rhe pnseengera
and crew-.
Typical case of th variance be
tween passenger and crew capacity and
lifeboat capacity are: Sheridan, 1S97
and 7e; Lognn, t.STii and "60; Sher-
i man. l,s, and Meade, 1,300 and
S00, and Crook, 1,053 and 420. The same
proportions extend through the Mat of
