in Chesapeake Day to-day after a
collision ol' their planes in tile course
of a bombing raid directed at the
hulk of the old battleship San Marcos
off Tangier Island. Reports received
by the War Department from Lang

one of ilw most peculiar on record.
Lieut. Plumb, Hying a fast single

and Capt. D iglas, in a similar ma
chino, was observing the raid from
above. Plumb's plane had just drop

Douglas's machine, culling off i;s

! USE TRUCKS OX THE H Hill WAYS,
IMiil Opposed to Letting Valuable
Machine**' Itust Out in Weather.
Washington, June 22.-Senator N,
j li. Dial, of South Carolina, for some
j time past has been endeavoring to
1 secure as much of tho surplus army
I property as possible In the way of
j automobiles and road equipment for
I the highway commission of South
Carolina .
"I can see no good reason," he said,
"for the army keeping its trucks nnd
j letting them rust out in the weather.
I As 1 stated a whilo ago, last Satur
day I saw hundreds of trucks perhaps
at Camp Hollabird, out there tn the
j weather, and my Information ls that
j they were put there before the arm
istice. I' have telephoned the bureau
of roads, but they told me they had
no trucks whatever ut Camp Holla
I bird. They further told me that they
could use all the trucks'they could
get. The trucks I saw are absolutely
new and have never been used. I
cannot see any difference between
th War Department, the Dosloifice
Department or the rcood roads bu
' ronu, or any other department. The
j property ls bought from the money
collected from the tuxes of the peo
ple and is paid out ol' tlx* same pock
etbook. I do not want to be unfriend
ly to the War Depart nient, but 1 de
not want it io arrogate to itself thc
belief that it can take this property
and keep it there and let it rust oui

1 sinne, let the 1'ostolllcc Departineni
have them. There should be no an
tagonisin whatever between the Wai
Department and any other depart
nient ol' this government. To mj
mind, the War Depart nient does no
need those trucks; otherwise tllOJ
would have used them long befen
this.
"I think it would be very well l<
let half of them go, but if we sell tin
other half we will get very little fo
them. We will throw them away
The point I am trying to bring t.
the attention of the Senate is tba
the property of the United State
ought to be used. It ought not to b
allowed to rust out. We should d'
everything we can lo build up th
roads in this country. I have no ill
will against the War Department,
have a great many friends in tba
department, but. the people of thi
eottnir> are a litte hit impatient uve
their extra vac... nee."
in .?; word S^rtatm Dial's pOfO.io
< is (hal !> makes no Jiffereuce wini
department hua these trucks; that i
is absolutely wrong to allow them t
deteriorate when all the State higl
way commissions are bogging fe
them. Whatever friction may exi:
between the War Depart nient an
any other depart nient, he believe
should cease, and the best use V
made of the various articles of equi]
nient in the interest of the peop
generally, ile said he would contint
his ellorts and follow up every po
sibe avenue io secure them for big]
way objects instead of seeing the
rust in many places throughout tl
country.
"The people." Senator Dial co
