Enjoy the Soft ,Light of Rayo
Why put up with a flickering, flaring, smoking ohd
lamp when you can buy a Rayo ?J
RAYO LAMPS give a steady light that is easy on the eyes.
You remove neither the chimney nor the shade to light them
-as convenient as gas. Artistic in design, they have no cheap
filigree ornaments that make cleaning a long job.
Your dealer will be glad to demonstrate Itayo Lamps. Ask for
them by name.

Return of Fletcher and Sibert Fur.
nishes Proof. May Make Changes.
Washington, Jan: 4.-Further proof
of the sweeping character of the pow
ers vested in the 'commanders in chief
of -the American naval and military
forces in - Europe has been disclosed
in connection with the return to this
country for duty of Rear Admiral
William B. Fletcher, former head of
the naval department In French
waters, and Maj. Gen. Williani L. SI
bert, who commanded the first Ameri
can troops sent to France.
Confirmation was given today to re
ports that Admiral Fletcher had been
replaced by Rear Admiral Wilson be
cause Vice Admiral Sims felt that the
latter officer was better fitted for the
particular duties imposed by the post.
Similarly, it is understood, although
there was no formal announcement
from the war department, that the f
return of General Sibert was due to I
General Pershing'; conclusion that the
arduous task of training a division
in France could be performed 'better r
by another ofilcer. u
The fact that Admiral Fletcher's re
turn to await assignment to duty, e
probably as commandant of an im- t
)ortant navy yard, coincided with pub- a
lication of the reports that investiga- a
tion of the loss of the American army ,
transport Antiles with 67 lives fore- I
shadowed a naval shake up, led to the a
direct connection of these two inci- r
diets. It was explained officially to- E
day, however, that the decision to re
place Admiral Fletcher had been made a
by Admiral M!iss prior to the sink
lug of the transport. The question
revived by Admiral Sims in reaching .
his declsion, it is understood, had toe
dto withi the use made of the limitedl~
number of destroyers or other craft
assigned to convoy work. The num
ber has been greatly increase( re
,ently. Both the war and navy depart
ments fare the necessity of forming a
policy to be followed with relation to Q
publication of the names of oflcers
who may be relieved from resiponsi
le post:; for the good of the ser
The <question is said to be a delicate
one because the oflicers involved may
have proved useful only for a very
special and limuited class of duties. c
It is indicated that where there is a
direct evidence of culpability there .
will be no hestation in publishing a
names and such circumstances as mill- ni
tary considerations will permit.
There is no ease now before either o
department that warrants such ac- d
tion, it is said.
The declsions of the commanders
abroad on all instances of the sending
home of o cors under their connand s
is absolute and will not be questioned I
here unless some gross miscarriage
of justice or milsuse of power is dis
