Majority of Officers, Long In Wash

Washington, July 20. As a con
sequence of the report of a court
of inquiry that unsatisfactory con
ditions exist in the marine corps,
largely as the result of many of
ficers having been in Washington too
long, the headquarters staff, with
only a few exceptions, has been or
dered to new posts in different parts
of the world. t
Colonel Charles H. Lauchheimer,
headquarters adjutant and inspector,
who requested the appointment of the
court of inquiry, was ordered to the
Philippines. Colonel Frank L. Den
ny, headquarters quartermaster, was
ordered to San Francisco. Just
what, if anything, has happened to
General Elliott, commandant of the
corps, is a matter of uncertainty.

of the aristocracy. Many cases are on
record where urpedigreed cattle have

owners boast of long pedigrees which
go with them. At the northwestern
exhibit the heifer called "Maiden Lane
XIX." or "Queen Helen X." will have
no better rating than will just "Maude"
or "Middy." And, on the other hand,
"King ' Leopold IV." will be on the
