and thinks himself safe,

And in any ease his money is
v wasted, -worthless, doing nomins
for him and nothing for the na

based on fear there is a. great deal

Major General Leonard Wood has

Orders transferring Wood to the

have been canceled.
Wood recently was relieved of his
assignment as leader of the Camp

when It appeared he would have
leadership of them in Europe. An
assignment then to command of the
western department at San Fran

resulted In a direct personal con
ference between President Wilson
and the general.
At that time, or soon thereafter,
the decision to reassign Wood to
command at Camp Funston In train

Whether General Wood will have
an opportunity to take this second
division overseas Is a matter of
speculation. Some officers, however.

whether he will ever see west line
