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

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."

'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. He
adds that Watson Ballentyne, son of
T. G. Ballentyne of this city, has
joined the corps as a cadet to train
for a pilot's certificate. His brother,
Allan Marshall, is also with the corps.

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.

"six months will fit your case better,'
The judge then went on to say that
all future cases will be similarly dealt
with.
