"TOMMY** WILSON DEBATER'S
Of late we have wondered quite a

so far as they may be needed. The
aim of the authorities, however, goes
niuch further than mendy to have a
certain number of euch trucks at
hand which may be. requisitioned;
they hope to get then; so generally In
troduced that the armies can timi them
anywhere in sufficient iiuunisitte h
anywhere in such quantities for mov
ing military supplies. The system
is to pay the subsidy to the manufac
turer at the lime that he sells the
machine to a person buying il for his
own use. All the leading German
automobile building companies are
now putting such subsidized drays
upon leb market. The military au
thorities are so well satisfied with
the system that they have Just de
elded to increase the subsidies and to
extend them to the sixth year, where
as they had hitherto only buen pay

Germans Are Interested.
Herlin, June 29.- The interest that
German sporting circles are taking
in the OlyniDic games to be held in
Herlin In 1911> lt; reflected in a remark
able Increase in the organizations of
the turnery. The annual leport of
the national organization shows that
450 new clubs with a membership of
G'.OOO Joined lt in the course of the
year. The general organization now
consists of 11,000 clubs, having a to
tal membership of 1.400.000. The
turners are trying to induce the mili
tary authoiities to prescribe a cer
tain minimum degree of physical de
velopment to entitle recruits to light
er military exercises. As a great
part of the military drill, particular
ly in thc tirst year, is designed mere
ly to develop physical strength, the
turners urgue that much of this could
be dispensed with in the case of the
your.g men who have already made
themselves strong through systematic
exercise and they believe that the ex
emptions asked for would give a great
impetus to their organizations.
Can't Stand Pressure.
Berlin, June 29.-The development
of the woman's movement In Ger
many carries with lt a remarkable in
crease in suicides by women. While
the ratio of suicides of men remained
constant during the twenty years
ended with 1912. the number of women
suicides increased from 8.3 to 10.6 per
1000.000 of the woman population.
While there are doubtless many caus
es for.Mm increase, the chief cause Is
attributed to the fact that women Lave
goue Into workshop and factory, mer
cantile employments and the profes
sions much more extensively than 20
years ago. They have shouldered
larger responsibilities and have ex
posed themeselves to rester econom
ic and social dangers. That the
. aus.e is hugely an economic one ls
??vident from the great increase of
womer suicides at Berlin where near
ly 48 women take their own lives to
every 100 men.

Population Increase Slow.
Berlin, June 29.-The population of
Greater Berlin is growing at a slow
er vate since the present period of
business depression set tn. It tn
creased last year by only 50,600
whereas the gain had been 108,100 for
1912 and 119.000 for 1911. Berlin
itself actually lort population In 1913
for tile first time In very many years
The reduction was about 16.000
whereas the previous rate of gain had
been about 12.000 a year. That the
change in prosperity was the cause
of this movement in population ls evi
dent from the fact that the number
of concerns in Greater Berlin employ
ing as many as 25 persons was re
duced in 1913 by 19.000.
