TOMMY GIVES OP Ajsocatod Prass by V S. WlrelM ) W ASHINGTON. D. C, Dec. 26. The senate nAlitary affairs committee to day listened to testimony as to con ditions in Camps Wadsworth and Bowie. This committee investigation groa from charges made by the surgeon genera which are told of in news papers Just received from the main land but of which no wireless or cable messages were ereceived here. An article printed under tae date of Washington. Dec. IS, says: Sensational charges of unsanitary conditions at army training camps by Surgeon General WUliam C. Gorgas were made public tonight by Secretary of War Baker. Copies of the reports made to the chief of staff by General Gorgas on conditions at four of the camps were given out. They are: Funston, Kan ; Sevier, S. C; Doniphan. Okla., and Bowie. Tex. They allege: Excessive deaths at the campB due to overcrowding. Failure of winter clothing to arrive. Location of camps in Infectious territories. Inadequate and incomplete hospital facilities. Pneumonia, meningitis, measles and mumps, cause many deaths. Reason for Sickness It is the first time official admis sion has been made that the death rate ia excessive. Blame is placed on the failure of the war department machinery to provide adequate accom modations. Overcrowding is In very case blamed for the extensive sickness. Men were placed 10 and 12 in a tent, allowing only 20 cubic feet of air space per man, when the proper space should have been much larger, with only five men to a tent In each of the camps there was no attempt to quarantine new arrivals un til they hafl been proven free from In fectious diseases. This, General Gor gas Intimates, was unavoidable when as many as 36,000 men were poured into a camp in a few days. Detention 'Camps He recommends the Immediate es tablishment of detention and separa tlbn camps for the sick men, issue of tents until there are but five men to each, rushing warm woolen clothing and a careful examination of every command before it leaves the camp, where it has been infected. Of Camp Funston, General Gorgas said: "I call attention to the fact that they bad 84 deaths (in the last month) when the normal death rate of such a command should be about 12." This part of the country. General Gorgas saya. has been well known as a center of epidemic meningitis to all health officers for years. Yet, the camp was built In the river bottom where storms of dust blow about the streets. To the dust, and the crowd ing he attributes the excessive pneu monia rate. The men had no winter clothing and no heat in the barracks. Conditions Serious Of Camp Sevier he says: "Sanitary conditions here are seri ous. Sixty men have died of pneu' monia within the past month." The condition was due to the over crowding of men from rural communi ties who never had had measles and to the lack of warm clothing. Under date'of November 29, General Gorgas says that wool clothing has arrived but not issued and that the whole com mand was still in khaki. Heat and plumbing are needed in the hospital, he said, and he recom mends motor tracks for the hospital. At Camp Doniphan, nine men to a tent resulted in excessive pneumonia, meningitis, diphtheria and measles. "I am Informed that shipments of winter clothing are coming in rapidly and issued to the men as fast as re ceived," says General Gorgas. "From personal observation, however. I find that many men are still wearing their cotton khaki clothing." This report was dated December 17. All Overcrowding At Camp Bowie the same prevalence or diseases due to overcrowding and insufficient clothing is noted. Condi tions here are described as the worst of any camp visited. They have dis turbed the governor of Texas and the jQcal health authorities. 'The base hospital is in an unfin ished condition," General Gorgas re ports. "No water in the hospital, no plumbing or sewer." General Gorgas recommends tele graphic orders to correct these condi tions. ARMY ORDERS 4 First Lieut William C. Bonner, Sanitary Corps.

UUR UUXeWiw.JerfEnCMrf.rt Krlitrfimi.4TwDiyw v - v Owe VCr MCtMb TRICAL FFEMNG LIFE FOR JOAN What an Inspiration, Joan of Arc. the martyred maid of Orleans is to the French poilus, may be gleaned from witnessing the production now showing at the Bijou, featuring Ger aldlne Farrar in "Joan the Woman." The story opens with a trench scene "somewhere" in France with the BritiEh commander calling for a volunteer to bomb a German trench, a feat which, if successful, means cer tain death. A young lieutenant re turning to his dugout after hearing the call, discovers a rusty old French sword imbedded in the earth. He pulls it out and examines it and then drops off to sleep. The memory of the sword comes to him in sleep and barks back to the days of Charles VII and the Maid of Orleans. Pictur ing himself as Count Eric, an Eng lish commander, the whole story of Joan of Arc is pictured. Awakening the young lieutenant finds himself so imbued with the spirit of self-sacrifice as represented by Joan, and so eager to make some remedy for the wrongs done her by his countrymen in the days of old. that he insists on the assignment which means death. The battlefield scene at night showing the German searchlights playing on the dead, is wonderfully striking. Darting in and out among the dead and wounded the British Tommy makes progress but finally the Boche searchlight spots S;m and the next instant a dozen bullets bring him to earth. As he dies the spirit of Joan of Arc is seen solacirig him who had sacrificed life in repar ation. SURAH STARS Valeska Suratt, who has hosts of admirers among Honolulu theater-goers, never before played to such ad vantage as in the William Fox pictur Ization of Rider Haggard's celebrated novel, "She," which is the main at traction' of the present program at the Hawaii theater. Notices that heralded the picture as one of the greatest pro ductions ever presented by the Fox studios have been found to be fully warranted by the quality of the pro duction. As a novel "She" long since became world famous after it had been trans lated into every civilized tongue. All of the great qualities of the story are retained in its screen version and tn the part of "She-Who-Must Be-Obey-ed" it may be said that Miss Suratt rises to new heights. In lighter mood Charlie Chaplin's absurd picture, "One A. M.," held over from the early part of the week, Is a decided hit Chaplin is the only figure on the screen throughout the picture, but he holds the. interest or all in portraying the experiences of a man who arrives home in the early hours "slightly spifflicated." It's a riot Included In the program is the be ginning of a new red-blooded serial of adventure that few will want to miss. It is called "The Fighting Trail." SEQUEL TO NOVEL 111 II 'The Squaw Man's Son." written as a sequal to the great drama, "The Squaw Man," Chat was seen here some time ago," is the feature attraction of the new bill at the Liberty theater. The picture is a gripping photo-play full of Hfe and action from beginning to end, and ranks well with the orig inal story which was one of the most successful ever put on the sereen. It is another Paramount production. The story centers about Lord Effing ton, the Little Hal of "The Squaw Man," and the leading part is played by Wallace Reld whose qualities as an actor of dramatic power are well known to Honolulu theater goers. In the production the star Is supported by an excellent cast which includes a number of famous names, among them Anita King and Dorothy Davenport A fact that is not generally known Is that Dorothy Davenport of the picture In real life Is Mrs. Wallace Reid. In addition to the feature picture. the new instalment of the Billle Burke serial, "Gloria's Romance," carries that interesting narrative forward through, a series of pleasing scenes. The weekly Pathe news pictures also are part of the program. MARSHALL ON PAYMASTER'S STAFF OF FLYING CORPS George E. Marshall, formerly of Ho nolulu and now in Toronto. Canada, has been appointed to the paymaster's staff of the Royal Flying Corps. In a letter received here Tuesday he states that he never wished so much in his life to be back in Hawaii as he did when one of those Eastern Cana dian snowstorms struck the flying corps camp a few weeks ago.

THEA IN NOTED DRAMA NO f in r u HI I IL1T1 WHY PAY MORE? LLOYD ARNOLD, U. S. AVIATOR, WINS PROMOTION Lloyd Arnold, son of L. E. Arnold, former superintendent of the Ha waiian Pineapple Co., is nov.- in France, a soldier of the United States. What is more, he has risen rapidly in the aero service. In a letter received by Justice James L. Coke, young Arnold refers modestly to his own advancement and gives some Interesting facts about others known here, mentioning that Francis Brown is also "over there." He says in part: "Everything is running along just as smooth as possible. Francis Brown and party have arrived but I have not as yet been able to locate them, or rather in a position to do so. I met a Hawaiian lad here the other day who had been attending college in the East and we had quite a chat. "Do you remember Masson (Didier Masson), the French aviator who flew from Leilehua to Kapiolanl park? Well, he is here and an adjutant in the French flying corps. We have quite a chat every evening and he says that he is going to make a pleas ure trip to the islands after the war. "It is getting rather chilly now but as we are well quartered .we do not mind it in the least, with the excep tion of the early morning rising part The men are getting along excellently in their training and will undoubtedly turn out enough aviators to give the Boches a merry chase this spring. As you know there is nothing really do ing during the winter months, or has not been in the past. "I was promoted from sergeant to sergeant first class a month or so ago and am now up for my commis- tion for first lieutenant and this grade has been approved through all the necessary channels."

FLIPPANT REMARK GETS WOMAN EXTRA 5 MONTHS In police conrt Wednesday Judge Harry Irwin came out strongly on the side of a "better Honolulu" when he sentenced Juana Rivera, arrested on a charge of vagrancy, to six months In the county jail. She was very flippant, remarking that 6he had just as soon rest a month. "In that case," said Judge Irwin, "six months will fit your case better,' The judge then went on to say that all future cases will be similarly dealt with.
