King Albert Makes History by Visiting Congress
ISTOIIY Is being made rapidly these days. When Albert, king of tho

Belgium's gratitude for American nld

For tho first time in history tho

of the world. Beside stood Leopold, duke of Brabant, his son and heir
to the Belgian throne, nnd from her place In tho gollcry Queen Elizabeth
looked down upon a scene unprecedented In American history.
Cheers and n thunder of handclapplng rang through tho staid chamber

II. S. Soldiers Gain Weight During the Great War
UNCLE SAM'S soldiers grew fat during the war, gaining an nvorngo of ten
pounds a man between enlistment and demobilization, according to Dr.
William Dnrrach, denn of the faculty of medicine at Columbia university.
Denn Darrach points out that tho bct-
ter health strides In the army were
made In spite of unfavorable condi
tions of war, und credited the achieve
ment to the mnrvelous development of
the science of medicine and hygiene In
recent years.
"While we may not expect to at
tain 'perfect health,' we certainly are
headed in thnt direction," Doctor Dar
rach said. "We no longer merely nro
checking disease or curing und allevi
ating the ills of mankind. We nro
preventing them. Preventive medlcluo Is mnklng tremendous strides. Vaccl
nation has made smallpox n rnrlty; inoculntlon has brought typhoid under
possible control; dlphtherln und hookworm nre taking cover; elimination of
the louse has put trench fever nnd typhus to rout; destruction of tho mos
quito checks malaria nnd virtually all other contagious or Infectious diseases
are being stamped out.
"Public hygiene hns made great strides also, especially In the larger
cities. The decrease in infant mortnllty statistics, where purental clinics
nnd milk depots have been established, is startling. From tho cradle on
through the public schools children aro watched cnrefully nnd their health
safeguarded by the community.
"The greatest example of tho progress mndo by surgery nnd tho medical
profession Is In connection with the war, For tho first time In history an
army grew fat. The American soldiers averaged a gain of ten pounds in
weight from the time of mohlllzntlon until tho army disbanded. All other
armies In history havo lost weight."
These men, tho nrmy of about 4,000,000 men, which participated In tho
war at homo or nbrond, will go to mako up a healthier coining generation.

Real Reason Why the Red Trousers
of the French Infantryman
Have Been Discarded.
Tho rod trousers of tho French army
nro to bo no more. There Is n political
and economical tragedy nbout It with
which very few people aro familiar.
Tho originator of tho red trousers was
Napoleon, who was prompted In his
"reform" by n desire to help tho nn
tlvo 'cultivation of madder root against
the Dutch and Italian rivals.
But then enmo tho Graebe-Lleber-
mnnn discovery of the alizarine dyes,
and In less thnn ten years, between
1870 nnd 1878, the production of mad
der root In France shrank from 25,000
to GOO tons, and then It disappeared.
This wns a great German victory. Nev
ertheless, tho nrmy trousors continued
to bo dyed red, only this time tho dyes
had to bo Imported from Germany.
It ovldently required n great war to
put an end to this humiliation.
