7800 ANNUALLY SEEK
TO ENLIST IN NAVY HERE
No Excuso for Shortage of 18,000
Men, BocruUing Officer Bays.
With 150 applicants a week throughout
llio year the Philadelphia navy recruit
ing station, 1413 Filbert street, could soon
do Its share toward filling up a shortage
of 18,000 enlisted men which Franklin J).
Itoosevelt, acting Secretary of the Navy,
eas exists In the United States Navy.
Officers at the recruiting office said
today that an nverage of 150 men a weetc
apply for hdmlsslon to the navy. Of this
number about 22 are selected each week.
Tho remainder are disqualified because
they cannot come up to the high stand
ard required by the physical test.
"The shortngo which Secretary Itoose
velt flndr," said one of tho officers,
"must not be construed as to mean that
applications to enlist are falling off, for
such Is not the case, ns our own llgures
show. Congress 1ms authorized tho navy
to have a complement of not over 51,500
enlisted men, nud It Is this limit against
which Secretary Hoosevclt's statement
was directed.
"At least 75,000 enlisted men are needed
properly to man all the ships of our
navy, many of which are out of com
mission because there nro not enough
sailors In tho nny. Ten years ago tho
naval complement was only 23,o,jV

McAdoo's Condition Improves
WASHINGTON Oct 12. Secretary of
the Treasury MeAdo. who has been con
fined to his home bv an attack of stoci i fi,
treble, waa reported faday to be ait
Jmproved. J
Suffragists today arc smiling placidly
at the assertion made yesterday by Mrs.
Frank J. Goodwin, a prominent New
Jersey lender of tho antts, to n class of
young nntis at the homo of Mrs. Austin
M. Purves, that the ballot-seeking women
of Philadelphia were putting forth the
Hower of their flock, the pretty young
women, as bait to attract men to the
cause.
i Girls, according to Mrs. Goodwin, who
are Just blossoming Into young woman
hood, are being brought Into the llmo
llght of street corners, nice tracks nnd
county fairs, just to advance tho cause
and because of this they nro In great
clanger of being preyed upon by wicked
and designing men.
"Ridiculous," said Mrs. Wilfred Lewis,
picsldent of thCEqual Franchise Society,
commenting on the charge. "It Just
shows what poor losers the nntis nre
when they hnvo to resort to such petty
nnd altogether unfounded statements to
attuck us. To my knowledge there has
never been a case of n young woman
suffrugist being discourteously trented
while advancing the cause In Philadelphia,
no matter how charming or pretty she
may have been."
TIME V.S WHEN "PUFFS" WERE
UGLY.
Miss Carrie Katzensteln. sccretnry of
the society, characterized Mrs. Goodwin's
assertions ns altogether too inconse
quential to have much attention paid to
them, but smS couldn't resist a little jab
at what she called tho Jealousy of tho
vntls.
"Time wns," said she, "when suffragists
were caricatured as poor unfortunntcs
with large Jawbones, huge feet hort
hair, tierce eyes, and they wore dressed
accordingly. It Is encouraging to know
now; however, that our friends, the antls,
realize, that we havo 'youth and beauty,'
to quote Mrs. Goodwin, In our tanks.
"That wo consider personal charm one
of our 'assets' is a very natural little
womanly weakness to which we must
plead guilty. That the nntis should grow
peevish about a recognition of this is,
perhnps, natural for persons championing
a losing cause.
"Surely," she continued earnestly, "no
person who knows the type of women at
the head of the suffrage movement can
take seriously any of the charges made
about a misuse of our 'assets
WHERE GREEK WOULD MEET
GREEK.
"Were a tialnlng school for youth and
beauty possible, such as Mrs. Goodwin
is t'ledltod with having tid that we
suffragists maintain, then I actually be
lieve that the two sides of the movement
would he drawn together In a common
cause nnd both antls and suffragists
would competo side by side for Class
Number One."
Another woman to take Issue with the
antls was Mrs. M. C. Morgan, former
Secretary of tho Pennsylvania Woman
Suffrage Association. Mrs Morgan la a
mother and grandmother, nnd one of her
daughters. Miss Mnry Churchman Mor
gan, a senior nt Hryn Mawr, and a holder
of several worlds records In athletics,
Is an acclaimed beauty of the Equal
Suffrage camp.
"In tho beginning of the suffrage move
ment here, many women belonging to the
Society of Friends," said Mrs. Morgan,
who is a Quaker herself, "came out for
the can's. They believed In plain dress
ing nnd they dreBscd plainly. The move
ment whs not popular In the beginning,
nnd other women whose belief did not
affect their mode of dress wore simple
attire, thus making personal sacrifice to
that they might contribute to the cause.
"But afterwards," she continued, "we
became more powerful. All kinds of
dressing was noticeable In our ranks
and even the Quakers wore their best
and most charming gowns We were no
longer the plain, and what the antls
might tall unattractive, group that vrt
were in the beginning.
"As for our young women becoming a
prey to unscrupulous men, that is ab
surd They are Intelligent, well educated
and most of them college girls, wh,o are
perfectly capable of taking care of them
selves. Jealousy of our tremendous
growth Is r sponsible for the petty little
charges that the antls trump up against
us."

If burglars or yeggmen blow your safe
open, wreck a part of your house and
spoil your rugs, don't get angry. Take
advantage of their curiosity and the
whole thing may proe to be a blessing
In dbgiilse.
This is Just what James S. Jones did.
He conducts a department store at Ger
mantown avenue and Coulter street. On
discovering a few days ago that yegg
men had blown hit safe out of shape and
wrecked a part of his ofllce, Jones took
tho safe, a few rugs nnd other things
which had been damaged and put all tho
wreckage in his window.
What was the result? A large crowd
looked In the window all day long. Then
they began to look In other windows and
saw things that they would like to buy.
So In a way tho misfortune proved to bo
n good advertisement and Jones finds that
he Is having more customers In his store
than ever.
MANY RECENT ROBBERIES.
But members of the Yeggmen'o Adver
tising Association are keeping themselves
scane. nevertheless, although there is
much petty thieving going on in Ger
mantown. There have been at least two dozen
robberies In that section during the last
three weeks. In hope of ending the bur
glars' campaign, a squad of plain olothea
men went out from City Hall, but up to
the present time they have not made
any important captures.
Evidence that the burglars hail a regu
lar clearing housy was discovered today,
much wic jjunce touna an unoccupied
house on Walnut lane in which was con
cealed a lot of stolen goods It Is be
lieved that the thieves have a rndxvnn.
somewhere on the outskirts of German-town.
In the German army Is one general
who enjoys popularity throughout the
Empire. He enjoys also tho confidence
and tho best good will of men of his
own class.
Ho Is Paul von Bcneckendorff und von
Htndenburg, Gcneral-oberst, commnncler-In-chlef
of the German forces In East
Prussia.
If Jcffre Is the French Fnbius of this
war. Hlndenburg Is tho German Cln
clnnntus. He was at the plow when the
war trumpet sounded on August I; not
literally, perhaps, but figuratively. In
1911 he was retired at the nge of 61. and
for three years after had lived without
military responsibility on his estate In
Posen. near where he was born.
Then, when the principal German
armies were rushing into Belgium toward
the plains of France, there came a call
to the obscure little village where Gen
eral Hlndenburg lived. He was ordered
to take command of the Kaiser's armle3
appointed to meet the forces of the Czar.
Born In 1S17, Hlndenburg entered the
3d Regiment of Foot Guards as a sub
altern In I860. In the war against Aus
tria he commanded a company after tho
death of tho captain, who was his Im
mediate superior.
At the battle of Koenlggratz. with about
10 men, he took an Austrian battery.
A few days later tho Emperor con
ferred on him the Older of the Red
Eagle, with Crossed Swords. This order
Is ordinarily conferred only on majors or
officers of higher rank.
In tho Franco-Prussian war Hlnden
burg was a captain nnd took part In tho
storming of St. Prevat, near Motz, one
of the bloodiest engagements of the war,
in which the German loss was 10 per cent,
of those engaged. That was on August
18, Twelve, days later he wns In the
battlo of Sedan, where he led his com
pany in a charge. At the close of that
battle Captain Hlndenhurg was decorated
by the Emperor with tho Order of the
Iron Cross.
The other day, after the battle of East
Prussia. Hlndenburg received his third
decoration direct from the hands of the
Emperor. This was also an Iron Cross.
nut Ulfferent from tho one given him II
years ago. That was made of tho metal
of captured French cannon and bore the
figures '70. This will be made of captured
Russian cannon and will bear the figures

one of them hal her origin In the Kalser'a
land, she Is not advertising the fact.
There were no tell-tale "Made in Dcutsch

the race for first place, and stockings
and underwear ore running each other a
close second for that honor. Belgian ref

come to tno pavilion ana nave signweu
their Intention of sending enough con
tributions to make a good showing or
their little orphaned countrymen.
The placing of bowls for money con
tributions outside of the pavilion yester

Look Out for
"Acid -Mouth55
You can't be too careful
about "Acid-Mouth."
You may not have it now.
But here's the danger when
"Acid-Mouth" does come,
it works exceedingly quick.
Almost before you know it,
it penetrates the enamel of
your teeth. Then decay is
sure to follow. Better be safe.
Bebeco
Tooth Paste
is the safe protection. It
drives out "Acid-Mouth"
and thus removes the cause,
so scientists find, for nine
tenths of all tooth-decay.
