ordnance experts In the navy. Hefore
the Kuropcan war opinion was absj-

adopting 16 or H Inch rllles fur the

smaller calibre kuii has the Hatter tra
Jectory for the name range many naval
officers believed that more accurate
shooting could be done Willi that
weapon. The same argument wan
threshed out at great length when the
navy a-Jopted the 14 Inch gun In place
of the 12 Inch. Such excellent records
were made at target practice with the
12 Inch projectiles that many gunnery
officers of the tlcot favored this weapon

l'lght more deaths from Infantile

In Brooklyn, were reported to the Health
Department up to 4 o'clock yesterday
afternoon. In the same twenty-four
hours prior to that time eighty new sum ,

expected that not more than about sixty

Joined with them to combat Its spread
by tho discovery yesterday afternoon
that two young women, one about 25
years old and the other several ears
her senior, had developed Infantile
paralysis In an unuoually severe form.
The occurrence of the disease la adul'.s
Is decidedly rare. Few uch cases are
known to medical science. Thoe two
were found In a .section of Fl.iOin.-h
already Infected with the disease, ami
the condition of the victims was such
that they were taken to the Kingston
Avenue Hospital at once.
More Stringent .Mrnsures.
Dr William H. Oullfoy, nuperlntend
ent of the Heilth Department, nnd Dr.

preventable diseases said last night that
the Infection of the two women left no
doubt of the seM'rlty and persistence of
the pre, nt epidemic. With that fact Im
pressed upon the Health Department
iittlclaN and their assistants In private
practice plans were drawn for even

TO SUN AND PRESS READERS
The now retail price of Thk SUN is one cent in
Greater New York, Jersey City nnd Ncwnrk. It is two
cents everywhere else no more.
Newsdenlers now buy Tun Sun nt the same price
nt which they buy other New York one cent mornlnjr
papers. It should be sold at the snme price.
The editorial department of Tun Sun has been
transferred from the middle to the last page. This
chanpo greatly improves the makeup, enabling us to
concentrate the news of the day in the front of tho
paper, whero it should be.
With the editorial page in the centre, this is im
possible with so much space necessarily allotted to de
partmental news such news as financial, sporting, real
estate and miscellany altogether, say, six or more
pages, nnd those pages should follow the news of the
day in sequence.
But there is another and very important reason
for transferring Tin: Sun editorials to the back page.
Obviously the best page in a newspaper is its first page.
The next best space is the last page of the newspaper.
Because it is the next best space Thk Sun editorials are
entitled to it.

L.1.ST10.V, July 2. A wounded soldier,
one of the first to reach London, gave
the following account of the Infantry
fighting In the new allied offensive:
"I Everything possible seemed to hate
been thought of befoiehand, and for
weeks we had been having rehearsals
of every movement. We were all ready
for the charge by G o'clock, but artillery,
which had been pounding nil night, con
tinued tho argument for an hour. Then
the bombardment slackened, and our
pulses quickened as wo realised our mo
ment wuh nt hand.
"The prellinwiaiy signal 'went down
the Hue and a few moments later came
the command to go forward. Our fel-
' ins hopped ocr tho parapets and ton-
i- toss the uneven ground to wlierc the
llrst lines of the Herman t tenches used
to be. As a matter of fact those
trenches had ceased to (lt. They were
liattered to bits.
"We .lid not lltctally charge the
enemy's advanced lienches. There was
nothing to chaige. What we did charge,
however, and charge quickly, were our
Mii shell holes behind the Herman
trwiches. They wete huge hole where
our shells had dropped during the week
and In these hol.t. the Hciinans awaited
us with machine guns. As we ap-
proaehed they turned the guns upon us.
"Some of our fellows carried bombs
and hurled them Into the holes as soon
as they got within reasonable, range.
Hut we did not finish them all In that
way There did not happen to be a
bomber handy every time a machine
gun sang out from a shell hole, s our
lads. Instead of waiting for some one
with u bomb. Just charged the holes,
often with a whoop on their lips they
to k flying lear. Into holes.
"It was a thrilling affair while It
laMed. A dozen or perhaps a score of
men would converge on a hole and take
a leap almost simultaneously The next
moment the hole was filled with a strug
irllng mass of ilrltlsh and Herman
humanity, while tho guns, of course.
