Shipbuilding Back
In 1907 Unprepared
For Events to Come
CHICAGO, Nov. 11 Back in 1907
when the world was at peace, ship
building on the Great Lakes had devel
oped to a point where some experts
wero inclined to characterize the In
dustry as overdone. There seemed to
bo more than enough bottoms to move
available cargo. A few concerns saw
what they thought was handwriting on
the wall and converted their shlpbuild-1
ing yards into repair yards. j
Among these was tho Chicago Ship
building Company, which was almost
wholly unprepared when the govern
ment sounded the call for "ships and
more ships."
Then the second transformation
came. Almost overnight the yards of
the company became alive with re
newed activity. Huge timbers formed
the skeletons of new buildings; trains
steamed in with, additional machinery
and tho working force was doubled
and redoubled.
Hence, before navigation closea late
this month, these yards, although tiny
when compared with Hog Island and
the great shipbuilding yards that
fringe the Pacific, will have delivered
thirteen sea-going vessels to thei
Emergency Fleet Corporation. Ten!
already have been delivered and three!
more are in the water being completed.;
"It is our record for thp present
year," said Kellogg Fairbank. presi

"The action of the War-Time
Commission of Churches approving

their several churches, is a fore
cast of tho united and whole-,

It. In itself, it isn't great or very un
usual despite the difficulties (hat had
to be surmounted. But it is these re- (
suits obtained by all tho. smaller yards, :
:oupled with those oi the larger ones,
:hat have helped the government to
realize its dream of a bridge of ships
jver the Atlantic.
"We have 2,800 shipbuilders here;
Ul of them are loyal soldiers who lack
inly uniforms. Slackers would have
:aused the plans to fall flaL"
Here, as in most other shipyards, the
ivotors, who comprise the vital branch
jf the industry, aro measuring skill
ror new records and, incidentally, re-
reiving unprecedented wages. Those
loiug piece work arc paid on the basis
Df 3 1-2 cents each for the 3 3-4 rivets
md more for the larger ones.
In addition to tho new vessels be
ing turned out, the company, of which
Frank C. LaMarch is general superin
tendent, also is doing some overhaul
ing and repairing. Work on the U.'
S- S. Wilmette, which has been in dry-1
dock for several months, has been
completed and the vessel, with guns'
mounted neatly, has put out for ocean
Rcrvice. The Wilmette. tested and'
approved by naval officers and Lloyds,
was formerly the Eastland which turn-1
ed over in the Chicago river three;
years ago with a loss of 800 lives. The
upper deck from amldship to aft was
cut away and a number of other
changes made in the rebuilding.
The Lake Shipbuilding company also
of Chicago, has devoted Its efforts
largely to ropairing and rebuilding and
has kept a large force busy since the
plans of the Emergency Fleet Corpor
ation were formed. .

MPT. C. T. SMITH
WRITES MOTHER
LETTERJOJffl
Another recent lotter from Capt. C.
T. Smith of the medical corps, is re
produced, at the request of friends.
"France, Sept. 29, 1918.
"Dear Folks: This is Sunday and a.
very quiet day, so far as I am con
cerned I was up at tho front yester
day examining some captured medical
supplies, which we wanted to appro
priate for our own use. Started to go
up again today, but got stuck in the
traffic, so came back,
"When this offensive began, we were
within two miles of the German lines
with our whole battalion, but now, on
tho fourth day, we aro somo ten miles
away. The night the big offensive
started, September 25, we were com
pletely surrounded by our guns of all
ealibcrs, and when thoy opened up at
11 p. m. the din was terrific. They
tell me it was a magnificent spectacle.
I he heavens flashing and flaming as
far as the eye could see, but I was too
lazy to get up and look. This was the
greatest artillery preparation in his- j
tory, and lasted twelve hours.
"Just came back from the hospital
next to our quarters. While there they
brought in a young fellow. shot through
(he right shoulder. He was on a
stretcher and when we turned down
the blnnket covoring him, ho had in
the crook of his arm a tiny rabbit. T
asked him where he got it. and he said
that after he was wounded and was
on his way back to tho first aid sta
tion, dodging through the woods, hid
ing from German snipers, he saw the j
little cuss running around, and feeling
sorry for it, stopped long enough to
catch it Another boy, severely wound
ed, apologized, in a weak voice, be
cause his hands were greasy. 'You
see,' he said, 'I was under the tank
fixing the clutch when they got me,
and I couldn't clean my hands before
they brought me in.' Of such stuff
are our fighting men here.
"A few days ago I was riding with
the major about two kilometers from
the German lines, going to a town the
enemy had Just hurriedly evacuated
We came to a fork in the road, and
chose the left hand road for no partic
ular reason; had gone only about 150
feet down tho road, which was cut be
tween deep banks, when he heard ma
chine gun fire. We stopped and ran
up the bank to seo the excitement
There, about half a mile away, were
two German airplanes, flying low over
a wood and firing at the Americans
below. Suddenly ono of them, mado a
half turn toward tho open field in our
direction, wabbled a bit, then crashed
down, brought clown by rifle fire from
the ground. The other machine rone
rapidly and beat it for home and fath
er. On another tour we drove into a lit
tle valley and came upon several thou
sand of our boys eating. It seemed, to
a casual observer, that the whole
ground was covered with troops. Sud
denly a German shell dropped with
a bang in the only spot in the valley
not occupied by troops. It seems ns
though fato guides the path of tho
enemy's shells.
"In the SL Mihiel drive, a great
many of the prisoners we took wore
Auetrians. and for the most part, they
scorned very bitter against tho Ger
mans; they accused the Gorman high
command with leaving them in the
pocket to cover the retreat of the
Germans, and I guess they were right.
The French peoplo who had been for
four years in the occupied territory,
were -fairly crazy with joy at their d'e
livorance. They said the Gormans had
taken nil the males from 14 to 45 with !
them when they retreated, in order. I j
suppose, to keep them "from joining)
the French army. According to the
papers, 18,000 of these Gormans crows
will sing no more "Fur Konig und
Faterland," at least until the war is
over, which, lot us hopo, will be soon."

FLAG OF EARLY DAYS
ffl'HOGOEl ;
YESTERDAY !
',
Tho only flag was not flying in Og
don yosterday was tho flag of the
Hohennollern German empire, for tho
rest thore were American. British,
French, Italian, Bolgian, Serbian and
their bright colors reflect the pride all
Americans truly feel for the forces
that have brought about the gladsome
victory of this auspicious day. '
But up at the Dee hospital there was ;
flying from the window of one of thej
front bedrooms a flag that told of an-i
other day in the parlous times when it
was not quite certain whether this
country would be a United States, or
rather of a day when the fear, that was
in many hearts that the union might
be. broken and kept broken, was for
ever done away.
The news had come to even the re
motest parts of the country on an early
day of April, 1865, that the town of
Richmond had surrendered and It be
came clear that the end, tlfo victor
ious end was in sight, that the United
States would be a country and tho
country would be the United States,'
and waving the 9aS before him came
the father of Mrs. Alico E. Hutchins
to their home in Morgan county, 111.,
and to his little girl he gave that flag
as a souvenir of the tidings of that
victory, so today In tho early hours of
this morning when the news was
spread abroad of the victory of thoi
allied forces over tho powers of Ger
man militarism Mrs. Hutchins who is
serving her country by aiding at tho
Dee hospital sought out the flag of for
mer days with its 32 stars it waved
from the hospital windows joining in
all the color and clamor of today Jubi
lant rejoicing that the union then
fought for has, endured to fight for a
unitod world of decent nations with
the love of liberty deep in their hearts.

WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING IN i
TWENTY YEARS FROM NOW .;
1
PARIS, Oct. 18. (By Mail) Twenty
years from now. when there Is a big
parado and the Veterans of the Great
War swing down tho avenue, one of
tho biggest divisions in tho procession
will be formed ofHhc members of the
society of "First Man To Teach French
baseball." "Mile after mile, rank upon
rank, this vast organization will flow
past the reviewing stand. It will be
even more numerous than that other
organization, which flourished just af
ter the Spanish-American war, the
"Amalgamated and Improved Order of
the First Man up San Juan Hill."
Probably the real ownership of the
title "First of all tho Firsts" in tho
instruction of tho French in America's
national game never will be deter
mined to the satisfaction of all claim
ants. But F. M. Jack, of Los Angeles,
Cal., believes that he has a legitimate
claim to being tho first man ever of
ficially detailed to perform this serv
ice. He offers proof in the form of a
copy of the order that directed him to
glvo the Poilus his assistance in de
veloping whatever Cobbesque talents
they might possess. As the order is
dated earlier than the timo when most
of the other "first men" began to as
sert themselves, it looks as if Jack
would have to be awarded the gold
handled umbrella.
Jack was serving as a V. M. C. A.
physical director in a Mediterranean
port when the United States army of
ficer In charge of the Yankee troops
in that district, complying with a re
quest from the French military people,
told him to go out and teach the game
of baseball. Three soldiers were de
tailed toy assist in. the task. And task
it was for practically none of the
Frenchmen in that region ever had so
much as seen a baseball and when
they tried to throw, you couldn't tell
whether they were putting the shot
or tossing the cabot.
The Y. M. C. A. man decided that
the best way to get tho mon interested
was to pick out a big squad and try
out the "talent." He selected 200 likely-looking
soldiers at random an'd set
them to work throwing an Indoor
baseball, giving such advice and in
struction as he could. Then he gave!
them batting practice, using an in
door bat. The 50 men that showed
most promise were told to report tho
next day and tho work was continued.
After enough players had acquired
some degree ot" skill, practice games
were inaugurated and later there were
formal contests every afternoon.
The men took to the game like buck
privates to mince pie. H wasn't very
long before some of them were show
ing real ability in all departments of1
the sport and the 'championship"
games developed interesting competi
tion and' fast play. The original squad
was .constantly being supplemented by
"recruits" who "fell for" tho game af
ter seeing others play it.
Liko many physical directors of the
Y. M. C. A. and tlu K. of C, Jack
;
believes that the best way to teach 1
basoball to tho French soldiers is to
begin with, tho soft ball, which is big s
enough to bo hit easily and not hard 1
enough to injure anyone that Ib "bean- J
ed," He says that when the gam :
started with the regulation hard ball,
tho men are always getting hurt and
that they decide, before going far i,
enough to appreciate tho game's good
points, that it is "trop dangereux." 1
Another advantage of the indoor
game played out of doors, is that It
requires less space than the regula
tion pattern. Open lots largo enough
for a game of ball are very hard to j
find in and around French citieB, bo- ,
cause almost all of the land in France" J
is being used for building or cultlva- '
tlon purposes. Most of the athletic ;
fields aro privately owned, so tho gen
oral public cannot have access to them '
and the number of persons that can j
learn to play ball on them Is neces- :
sarlly limited.
It is the opinion of the Y. M. C. A. '
man, who also has had wide 'exper- j
ience in playground work in Los An
geles and elsewhere, that the way to
introduce baseball among the French
In a manner that insures its success ;
is to begin on the children. He says
that a playground program, developed
along the approved American lines,
will give the right kind of muscular ,
training and also stimulates the in-
terost that eventually will popularize
the American sport. On the other
hand, he says that there is little
chance of making baseball a "go" if ;
I one attempts to teach it to adults from
"scratch" with the hard ball. h
j The attempts of a novice to hit a j
regulation baseball with a regulatioa .
bat are bound to bo discouraging and j
in some cases where this has been m
tried, the French havo come to the m.
i conclusion that they never will be K
(able to acquire enough skill to wallop m
! out line drives. m
On the other hand, anyone that is M
j not blind can hit an indoor ball when
j it is thrown in an ordinary manner.
I There are Indoor pitchers who have so
much "stuff" that they achieve bigger ;
strike-out records than the big leag
uors in the outdoor game, but such j
men would not be selected, naturally,
to teach the French how to play.
