Troops Said To Be Taking Arms'

i . .
FRANCK, August 21 (By the Assoeint
ed Press) derma oy military teodors
now have become distinctly worried
over fhe prospects of n revolution in
(lermany. (lenerni I luiPndorrT, in a cop
1 turad secret m-.ler, has taken steps
to employ the assistance of his com
manding nlfirers and various govern
i ment agencies to help him stump out
the glowing spark hieh has been seen.
! The order, which is more illuminating
thnn anything which has come out of
j (lermany' in ninny months, fidlows:
"It hlta come tn my knowledge
through a letter addressed to the royn.1

Take Weapons Home
"A soldier, said to have come from
the industrial region of Rhenish West
phalio, declared in a trnin that in his
home district men were goinu. on leave,
taking weapons with them for the
aforesaid object, and that it was easy
to take home (Jerman or captured re
volvers as well as hand grenrfdes sep
arated into two parts.
"I desire that the clothing of men
going on leave be searched as test
cases before their departure. It will
be possible to carry this nut at the
but lis and dressing stations.
"I wish to impress upon 0,11 superior
officers who happen to hear such ob
jectionable talk or who hear of it
through others that the.y must deal
ith it st once and without hesitation.
The home authorities nnd the director
of military railways have been directed
to take corresponding measures."
Balk At Battle Line
Another order just captured, bearing
the signature of the chief of staff of
the Forty first Infantry division, re
cites that courts martial have had
various and sn increasing number of
co-es where subordinates emphatically
'el'used to nccompanv their units into
the line and where the "superior ofTl
cers have neglected to enforce obe.li
ence bv failing to compel the cowards
to t'O into the front line."
Obedience in this re pe. t. -,!ie i r.' r
said, must be enforced, even though
it rrsv be necessary to resort to force
nnd the use of arms.
It is right, the order sni.l. even to g.i
to the tength of shooting a man as an
evtreme necessity.
Own Airplane Downed
Anotbe'r raptured order deals with
he investigation into a case where a
flfrnisu. airplane was shot down, prob
ably in mistake by (Sermun troops, and
the occupants secretly buried. "Such
procedure," the order said, "is un
worthy of the Germany army."
In still another document, (Jen. I. ml
eudorf says there are constant reports
of (Jernian officers on leave voicing ut
terances that are calculated to awaken
feelings of diiubt as to German pre
"iiredness for battle. He mentions nn
officer in Berlin, who said that further
offensives were impossible on the west
ern front been use of the shortage of
horses and oats. Ceneral I.iiden.lorf f
warns oflirers against spreading unfav
orable rumors. He declares that it
is remarkable (tint they never bring en
o'iriiiriiig news home from the front
nnd a Ids that it is "better to color 'he
-;t..-itii.n i.lil, H rosy line than itli
black paint."

held to have satisfied the claim upon

regarded as certain that Belfast and j

The result would be that the onlv

Helping Nation
Hawaii public school girls are not
buck" sr. I in the knowledge of the
rudiments of war time gnrdeniu ; and
much progress 'tins been made in this
department of a general, useful and
'hoiouglily helpful education in the Is

N.ur Siiruton Springs, California, on
the beautiful country estate of Yh.Mo,
1 be ng curried on a war work that ha.
a. .'omplished much in a very short time.
Ii wus o.iginute.l nod is directed by
lr Kntrina Trnsk, author of the paci
fist play "In the uguar.l," now sn
ai.'ent helper of the Government in ils
efforts to conserve resources a a nie.-s
sary part of winning the war.
I(.nli..iig the wool shortage und.-r
which the nation would be suffering
after the depletion of the production
for mil. ary purposes, Mrs. Trask tried
sheep raising on an extensive basis im
mediately after wur began. Then she
eiu.se.l large tracts of hitherto uiius d
farm land on her Y'a.l.ln estate to be
cultivated and planted with those
things which the Allies and this nation
most, nee. I -wheat, rye. oats bailev.
com. etcetera. After that she lnunched
her farm colony work.
Put-. Theory Into Practice
Appri-. i-.tiv e of the fact that it w tm
so much the work of the indivi.liwl
whi.-h counted, but that the vub.e of
se rvice increased pr pun. mutely ui the
increasing number of people w ho coul I
be led to share il. she set apart about
foitv acres of her best farm land to be
used by the girls and boys of the town
its wnr gardens. Last venr there were
twenty five of these plots, cultivated,
planted, cured for, and harvested by
L'irls anil boys aped between ten and
fourteen vears. Not only did these rhil- 1
dun supply- their families with fresh
vegetables all summer long, but their
Cf.iiiie.l p oduets added greatly to the
c.unfi rt of their homes during the
Winter months. This year the number
"f vnr gardens has been more than
doubled. There are about sixty chil
dren now taking part in the work.
There is nothing dilettante or nuin
teurish about the farm colony. Mrs.
Trnsk has put the work into the hands
of an expert, John 11. Irons, whose in
terest lies not alone in the agricultural
end of it. but in the pair' otic aspects.
At the second flug ruining held over
the grounds recently he said, in speak
ing of the project:
"Raise Food" Is Slogan
VI want to emphasiez that ev rv
pound of food you ra:se on this grennl
which yon have taken as the gift of, the
Lady of Vaddo, means that another
pound mnv be released to be sent across
the sen. Because of your willingness to
do this work, this ground becomes e n
seerate.l te a world task. When the
weeds are hnrd to pull and the hot sun
beats down, let us remember that it is
not for ourselves, not for our homes
alone that we are working, but for our
country. We are working to help to
meet the world's great need.
"When the war is over, the man or
woman, boy or girl, who has not accept
e.l the opportunity Ihut lius come to
take purl in this struggle nil) 11. it be
vv.uthv I., stun. I a. noug those who hnve
put their sacrifice, their life, into the

Mrs. Tiusk, unable to be present, s -nt
a message in which she said:
"The brave me-, a ill bovs of the
country, with dnuntless hearts. ,;r

brave women and girls nr.- also scrying,

Taken At Once To Check It"
' ' Tiibi-n nlosis is a greater menace to-

This was the emphatic Assertion af
George p. Deni-on. who has been named
,1 committee of one by the board of
health to sound a note of warning to
the elininber of commerce by bringing

chamber 11 proposal for the use of the
accumulated tonnage tax fund, Or at

board of hi-nlth uf its meeting this
week thnnygh the report of President
S S Paxson us to conditions as be
found them on Knn.ii, from which is
land he had just returned. He stated
that conditions there were deplorable
and tuberculosis spreading.
.".peaking ot the mutter yesterday,
Mr. Denison said that one of the things
should be taken np officially- was
tlmt of enring for the dependants of
those suffering from tuberculosis, who
had too much manhood to stop work for
the sake of tl.eir health, but keep on
working snd thus n.blod to tha spread
of the disease among others, while prae
t'ually condemning themselves to death.
Money Is Needed
"What is needed is a sum of money
s.-fticlent enrrv on the enmpeign
igninst tuberculosis, either through the
.enhl Home, the Painn.n Settlement or
n some wny wtin-i. will reach the peo
ple who need help," sni.l Mr. Paxson,'
"The only sum available at thin tima
might be the 4100,(100 accumulated in
the tonnage tux fi:n.l of the chamber
of romuierce.

"I exoeet tu take the matter no with
Riehnrd A, Cooke, chairman of the
health committee of the chamber, just
as soou as pusslb'e 11 11 I I expect that
some action will be taken whi. h will

it is possible that there will be some

Cooke Non-Commlttal
Richard A. Cooke, chniruian of tha
health committee of the chamber of
. 011 i.uer. e, was no.. . .. nu.nl tul la .t eve-ii-.ig,
saving that the mutter had not
been brought before him otliciuliy and
that until the committee of vvhi.li he
was e, airman had had an opportunity
to consider the matter he would prefer
not to make a statement.
"However, it seems to me n matter
of importance ,-tu.i it is probable that
the heulth committee will meet early
in". t week The matter, if it ionics up
Ihe. 1, will be ucied upon and the recom
meudutious of the eoininitlee vill go
before the directors of the . Lumber of
