The payment. it was announced at
the War Department, eoVera bills al?
ready approved nnd nnticipates bills
which ordinarily would fall due within
ihe next three months. War Depnrt
ment accountants have computed the
amount now due from the department
to be $65,00(1000, while the railroad ad
ministratioi/ estimates it at $80,000,
000. Acting Secretary CrowelI,-in an
nouneing the payment, said the sum
had been made available by the shift

for the, War Department, but unex
Ordinarily, railroad administration
officials explained, the War Depart?
ment would have made payments di?
rect to the rnilroads rendering service,
but the aggregate payment direct to
the railroad administration was ar
ranged to aid the administration in
its present financial situation. The
payments also would have been spread
over the nex,t three months in the or
dinary course of business nnd con
.sequently this amount must be sub
tracted from railroad receipts for this
period. The money will be distrihuted
by the railroad administration to meet
ihe curent cash requirements of
treasurers of individual roads.
With this payment the .-".f>0,000
000 advanced by the War Financo
t'orporation, a payment of $10,000,000
recently by the Navy Department on
account of transportation, and various
loans to be repaid by railr.oads within
the next few weeks, the railroad ad?
ministration expects to have sufficient
funds to meet its, current cash require?
Trade ncceptances are to be used in
financing equipment piirchasos, and cer
urieatw of indebtedness are to be given
to railroada for atnounts due from the
Railroad Administration on last year's

"Should he do so the issue thus

of the renewed armistice o? February

is n feeling that. the conference is moro I
and more involving itself in a maze '
of academic abstraction, while tho Ger- !
mans play adroitly upon the weakness J
of the situation.

"The solutron of the Polish prob?

first, fortify Poland atid then delimit ;
her frontiers. Everything originally
pointcd to thip method. lt was neces?

Navy Men Impatient
To Start Sea Flight
Before British Score
WASHINGTON. March 21.- Prepara
tions for the attempted fligh*t of n
navy seaplane across the Atlantic
Ocean this spring are going steadily
ahead at the Nevy Department, and it.
is possible the start may be hastened.!
It has been announced that thc navy
plane would not begin the flight for
several weeks, possibly not until May.
but some officers feel that with the
plans now fairly well advanced the
department would not be contenl to
see the plan carried off by n foreign
machine without bonding every efforl
to be first in the lield. It now is gen
erally recognized that because of the
direction of air currents the American
Atlantic Coast is the only feasible
starting place for a trans-Atlantic
flight. This gives the Navy Department
an advnntage in time, as a British dr
any other European machine would
have to be transported to this coast
by steamship nnd be set up here.
As far as has become known, pilots for
the navy machine havo not yet been
selected.nor has the number been de
termined, At least two will be neces
While the machine that is to make
the flight is cirpable of carrying fifty
passengers for n compnratively shorl
distance, so much gasoline will be re
quired to run Iho ship that extra weighl

which the department experts now are

Some doc.tors held that a hospital was

"Thc function of the hospital is
