Show in Newport Huntingdon Valley Unit of
Land Army Supplies Farmerettes
THE Newport women are thoroughly In
earnest about their gardens and pro
duce. On Tuesday afternoon of this week,
one of the prescribed exhibits of flowers
and vegetables, Mrs. John R. Drexel,
formerly of this city, wort a prize for glox
inias at that one, and the younger girls
are right In It and are working In their
gardens as hard as any hired farmerette of
today. Every Tuesday and Saturday the
King girls, Ethel, Dorothy and Violet; Dor
othea Carroll, Helen Cameron and Mary
Augusta McCagg, of the volunteer land
army, sell their vegetables at a booth In
the public market stand In Washington
It's really splendid how much In earnest
these girls are.
SPEAKING of farmerettes,, did you know
that the Hutlngdon Valley unit of the
woman's land army, to. return to local
doings, has Issued postcards to various
land owners promising to furnish from two
to any number of farmerettes to the
neighboring places at the rate of $2 per
day, and an eight-hour day, at that.
The card reads: "Strong, husky girls,
skilled In farm work, hand cultivating,
harvesting; work in vegetable gardens,
fruit gathering and pitching hay."
The four women who form the commit
tee In charge of the land army out there
are Mrs. E. E. Marshall, Mrs. Percy Ma
deira, Mrs. W. Paul O'Neill and Mrs. Jos
eph W. Lipplnco-tt, Some enterprising
war workers, those on the Huntingdon Val
ley line, are they not?
EDITH GILLINGHAM will be a happy
person soon when she Is able to pre
sent to the Duryea war relief the proceeds
of the large bridge party which was held
this morning at the home of Mrs. William
loyd, In Harvey street, Germantown.
Edtfa writes the most Interesting letters,
and several of them wero read In
the intervals of playing yesterday. She
is the daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Harrold
IlgllUngham, of West Price street, Ger
njgMown, and has been over there much
of the time since the war began, helping in
the Duryea work.
I take It she ia not too temperamental
to make herself generally useful there. I
must explain the temperamental remark.
I never think of the Duryea relief that I
do not remember the story of a girl who
went over from this city a couple of years
ago to work for that relief, and after sev
eral days of packing boxes, repaired to Mrs.
Duryea and remarked that sno would not
remain in that sort of work, as "her tem
perament" could not stand it. So she
hied herself elsewhere, and for tho greater
good of the cause It ij bate to say she
is no longer over there.
When one starts in nursing or helplhg
with relief work in the devastated regions
of France, ono wants to leave ono's tem
perament, which more properly mayNbe de
fined as "temper," at h6me, don't you
Well, Edith has done perfectly splendid
work, and every one who knows her Is
"" proud of her and her perseverance; no
matter how tired or disheartened she has
been she has kept straight ahead. Mrs.
Lloyd and Mrs. Linton Alburger had
charge of the party today and among
others who wero Interested and attended
were: Mrs. James' McVey, Mrs. Horace Dea

FATHER drives his own car and Just
loves to have Bobby on the scat beside
him, for Bobby never misses a trick. Said
eon is Just six, and father is so proud of the
bright, sturdy.llttle fellow! On one of their
early evening rides they had to turn back
from a road which had been closed to the
public. "Too bad, Bobby," said father, "It's
a long way round, .but this direct road is
closed for repairs."
Now,"- father Is one of those Christians
who reads his. Bible every day, and when
Bobby, questioned. "Why do you read it
very day?" father explained: "It's the
'Way of Life,' Bobby; one needs to be di
rected to the right road every day, Just
Law 'as we have a map to direct us when we
V tafcn our automobile rides." Now. it hap
pened that the constant use of the Bible
had loosened tho binding, so one day
mother pasted it on with library paste and
criss-crossed the book with twine to hold
the binding place until the paste should
dry. Well, father wandered around that
evening looking for his Bible, and small
son tagged after him. "What are you
hunting. Dad?" he Inquired. "My Bible,
Bobbins; did you see It?" "Sure, Dad, but
you can't use it tonight. It's closed for
repairs." He had Dad that time, didn't he?

WAR CHEST PLAN FAVORED
War Department, to Cut Down Expenses,
May Order One Combined Campaign
Washington, July 26. Plans under which
all organizations seeking by popular sub
scription funds for providing recreation and
amusement for soldiers would unite to carry
on a combined campaign are under considers,
tlon by the War Department. The object Is
to eliminate overhead expense and competi
tion among the six separate organizations
carrying on work among the soldiers.
The plan Is said to have the support of
Chambers of Commerce, Rotary Clubs and
other civic organizations, as well as most
Government departments. It provides that the
Government-recognized societies and organ
izations pooling their campaigns would re
ceive the same proportion that their budgets
bear to the whole amount to be raised.
These budget requirements for the next
year were announced aa follows:
T. M. C. A i 1100.000,000

.MANY QUIT MINISTRY
TO ENTER WAR WORK
Large Number of Vacancies Will
Have to Be Filled at New
Many of the Methodist Episcopal ministers
In New Jersey are taking up war work, and
when Bishop Joseph F. Berry, who presides
over the New Jersey Conference, returns
from his vacation next week he will Ann
he has a number of appointments to make.
The pastors of some of tho leading churches
have resigned, and the report has stirred the
ministers of tho conference, for it means a
readjustment of the ministerial list. A ses
sion of the district superintendents wilt prob
ably be called to fill the vacancies.
The Rev. L K. Wlllman, pastor of the
First Church, Asbury Park, which pays the
best salary In the New Jersey Conference,
has resigned, and will engage In Red Cross
work. The official board of the church de
cided to aak the services of the Rev. E. K
Hann, who was transferred from Philadel
phia to the New Jersey Conference last April
and assigned to the First Church, Trenton.
It is doubtful If the Trenton church win
agree to his transfer unless another preacher
of equal ability can be had.
The Rev. Charles H. Elder, who has been
pastor of Trinity Church, Trenton, for the
last eighteen years, has been appointed chap
lain of the New Jersey State Prison. He hah
resigned as pastor of the church, which pays
him a salary of $1300. As chaplain he will
receive a salary of J1200.
Before being appointed pastor of. Trinity
Church he was pastor of Wesley Church,
Trenton, for five years, so he has been sta
tioned In that city twenty-three years, and
during that period he has performed more
than 2000 marriage ceremonies.
The official board of the church will ask
for the appointment of the Rev. Lawrence 8.
Correll, pastor of the Hlghtstown Church, to
succeed Doctor Elder.
The Rev. F. B. Harris, pastor of St. Luke's
Church, Long Branch, probably will ask for
his release so he can become a chaplain In
the army. The Rev. John J. Messier, pastor
of Commerce Street Church. Brldgeton, prob
ably will take up Y. M. C. A. work.
Some of the retired ministers are now
supplying pulpits where the ministers have
taken up war work, so others may be called
Into service again.
RED CROSS NEEDS WORKERS
Young Women Can See Service as Norses'
Of the large number of young women who
ardently express a desire to go to France,
there is a chance for a selected few If they
enlist as nurses' aides, according to the
Pennsylvania division of the American Rea
Cross. They must be not less than twenty
five years of age, physically sound and with
some knowledge of nursing.
The last qualification Is absolutely neces
sary. Not even for the ordinary work oi
sweeping and dusting In the wards Is an
untrained girl accepted. A raw recruit who
knows nothing of the demands of hospital
work Is too likely, for one thing, to over
estimate her strength, and sticking powers,
with the result that she may prove only
another burden on the heavy load that al
ready is being struggled with In France.
Again, the responsibility Is so grave that no
chances can be taken In any department or
the relief work.
The nurses' aides accepted will be used In
foreign service for relief work among the
refugees, and In the hospitals as well. The
training qualifications demand that they must
have taken a certain amount of training In
hospitals here or have completed the pre.
llmlnary Red Cross training.
Possibly fifty aides will be recruited by
the Pennsylvania division of the Red Cross,
and they will go across as a regular' Red

fete to be held tonight.
It will take placu on the spacious lawn of

The affair' will be somewhat different from
the average lawn fete. There will be a
number of Innovations and surprises designed
to delight those who attend.
Myers's orchestra wilt add to tho general
enthusiasm with popular selections. The
girls, under whose auspices the fete will be
given, have spent several weeks In obtaining
donations for the various booths.
The persevering promoters, whose ages
range from twelve to fifteen years, are the
Misses Ethel Volgt, Dolores Ralston, Dorothy
Heller, Mabel Johnston and Dorothy E. Lehr.
The proceeds will go to the soldiers and sail
ors' tobacco fund.
Little-Known Philippine Industry
People usually connect the Philippine
Islands with perfumes and tropical fruits,
and very little Is heard of the great native
industry the weaving of fabrics from pine
apples and bananas. The lining of the skins
Is used and looms not unlike those
familiar to us are employed. The finest
material Is made from pineapples, and called
plna cloth. It Is very soft and close In
texture, somewhat resembling mull-muslln,
and Is the color of champagne. It Is not as
a rule dyed, and Is beautifully embroidered.

ALIEN ENEMIES TO WORK
ONFARMS IN DEMAND
More Applications Than There
Are Men in Camp Here.
Prove Good Laborers
There are not alien enemies enough avail
able to supply the demand for them as farm
laborers In the vicinity of Philadelphia.
For several weeks the Department of Jus
tlco and the Department of Labor have been
co-operating In placing many of the men
exiled from the Panama Canal and sent to
Gloucester, N. J., on farms where labor was
The plan has worked well, and laborers are
so In demnnd that It has been Impossible to
supply all of the farmers who have asked
Miss Flora M. Elderton, a pretty, dark
haired, brown-eyed assistant In the United
States District Attorney's office, Is In charge
of the distribution of the alien enemies. As
the Department ot Justice finds an alien
enemy Is harmless and his record good, the,
man Is paroled and his name sent to the
Department of Labor,
'The aliens are enthuslaatic about farm
work," said Miss Elderton. "And the farm
ers find them excellent help Of course, there
Is a lot ot red tape about It, because It Is
necessary for the Government to constantly
keep In touch with such persons.
"The alien must report once a week to
his supervisor, who. In moat cases. Is his
employer, and once a week to a Federal
officer. When the men are sent some distance
from Philadelphia the postmaster In the
nearest poatoffice receives his report ana
sends It on to us. The alien cannot leave
the county In which he Is placed without
the permission of this Federal officer. The
men are placed on farms far away from the
seacoaat and from the large cities. Most of
the fifty sent from this office have gone to
Field Battalion at Paoli Engages

ttf,Atnl,a fit ihn MM, rfftrrihri Ii1aw
will be found on the back pats.
The camp of the Field Blgnat Battalion of
the United States marine corps, at Paoll, is
well worth a visit.
Located somewhat to the northwest of the
town, the site Is rich In Revolutionary tradi
tion and the contrast between the primitive
earthworks of those days and the elaborate
trench systems of the war Is striking.
The old stone house occupied by Major
James J. Meade and his staff was built more
than 150 years ago, and was the headquarters
ef Mad Ahthony Wayne aunng tne enure
Valley Forge campaign. ' General Washing
ton spent some time there during one of the
really determined raids made by Oeneral
Howe's forces 'and personally directed the
Now this ancient house has been fitted up
with shower baths, telephonea and electric
llghte. On the sloping hillside where the
"tattered heroes" crouched behind their post
and rail redoubts stretch rows of brown
In the hollow where General Wayne
parked his muzzle-loaders are lines of field
telegraph nnd telephone wires, lines of nar
row trenches for carrying those wires when
close to the front and a sector of front-line
trenches, built just like those along the
Those who have visited the big training
camps Camp Dlx, at Wrlghtstown, N. J.,
and Camp Meade, not far from Baltimore
are familiar with the modern trench as used
by the men. But these little silts In the
ground that carry the wires, the vital factor
In the warfare of today, will be a novel and
interesting sight to most people.
This marine camp has been named Camp
Edward C. Fuller, after Captain Fuller, of
the marine corps, who was killed while lead
ing his men In action June 12 last near
Chateau-Thierry. Five weeks ago the site
was a barren waste, with grass and weeds
from one to three feet high. Now It Is a
humming hive of Industry, with streets, a
parade ground, mess halls, a canteen, a hos
pital and a Y. M. C. A. shack.
Street Drainage Good
The streets have storie-llned gutters, are
crowned In the center to give perfect draln
agp and every detail has been worked out to
perfection. There Is a constant and unre
lenting warfare going on against files. Lime
Is used freely with creosote as an effective
aid, and In consequence the whole' camp is
singularly free from the pests. Measures
taken the day the advanced guard arrived
have eliminated mosquitoes and none of these
buzzing bearers of disease germs has been
There have been some minor accidents,
cuts, bruises, falls, sprained ankles and so
on, but not one case of real sickness since
the camp opened. Yet there have always been
between BOO nnd 600 men there, and often
as many as 800.
They arc all picked men, chosen for Intel
ligence, Initiative and mechanical ability.
They are being taught radio and telegraph
operating, field telephoning, signaling In all
Its branches, wig-wag, heliograph, by using
electric lights at night.
They are being taught how to set up and
take down a field radio apparatus In four
minutes. They are being taught how to set
up heavy lines of wire, the kind that stretch
along the principal roads between big cities.
Tills Is rudimentary stuff and easy for any
one with brains to pick up. But It's when
the wires that connect regimental headquar
ters with the most advanced listening post
draw near the front-line trenches and within
range of the enemy artillery that the work
becomes more complicated.
If there Is time the narrow but deep
trenches already referred to are dug. If
there Is not time either shallow trenches,
about IS Inches wide, are scooped out or a
temporary lino of wires Is hastily strung on
long poles known as "lances" and carried
for the purpose.
Taught Wire Banning
The men aro shown how to tap these main
cables for lines to run off to the various
posts In the sector, how to get their wires
over or under any other cables belonging to
adjoining sectors that they may come across.
, They learn how to put up makeshift
swticnooaras ana now id maite mem perma
nent For an hour or two each morning and
afternoon they go to school and learn all the
wrinkles of the sending game.
The latest tips on how the work Is done In
France with shells pouring down on the men
aa they labor are Imparted to the men by
Lieutenant Charles William Smith, a French
man, who Is a member of one of the few
Smith families In France. His remote ances
tors left England because of a disagreement
with the powers that be and never changed
the spelling of their name.
Lieutenant Smith was educated in England
and speaks the language fluently. He Is
popular with the marines (ind was declnrcd
by Major Meade to be a remarkably fine In
structor. He served for three years with the
Eighth French Engineers and knows every
trick of the signaling trade.
There are now In process of construction
at the camp three schoolhouses, so that the
teaching can go on, rain or shine. At present
the classes meet under the shelter of a big
apple tree. A machine shop Is also being
built. Big are lights are being strung, the
camp Is being fenced with barb wire and It
Is expected that all the preliminary work will
be completed within a week or ten days.
Then the men can settle down wholeheartedly
to the task of learning their trade.
An interesting feature of this camp is that
the men have done all the work themselves.
They have cut the lumber, erected the build
ings, put up the wires for the internal tele
phone system that connects headquarters
with various parts of the cantonment, in
stalled a most Ingenious set of refrigerators,
one for each company, cut down trees, mowed
the grass, built roads, dug gutters; In fact,
proved that not only are they jacks of all
trades, but master of them to boot.
These refrigerators or ice boxes, as the
men call them, are all set In a high bank.
The earth has been dug out, the Interior
lined with boards and two compartments
made, one for meat, the other for vegetables.
Earth Is piled hlsh on top and tome are
camouflaged with limbs of trees bearing their
leaves and with vines.
Carrier risron Service
The carrier pigeon, which has proved so
useful in trench signaling. Is also a feature
of this camp. A regular pigeon service Is
maintained between the camp and the ma
t rlne barracks at the Philadelphia Navy Yard,
the birds taking about twenty minutes to
make the trip from yard to camp or return.
The distance by air line is estimated at about
seventeen miles. Captain Merrill, of the
147th Company, Is the "plgeoneer," to quote
Major Meade, and he knows every one by
The social side of camp life has not been
neglected by Major Meade and his staff
despite their desire to train their men
promptly and thoroughly. The people of that
section have been lavish in their hospitality ;
they have arranged all sorts of entertain
ments for the marines dances, motor rides,
informal affairs of many and varied kinds.
There Is a fine swimming hole not far from
the camp, a baseball diamond Is being laid
out and they hope to have a tennis court or
two. In the meantime there are many private
courts on which those so Inclined are more
than welcome to play.
The men themselves infinitely prefer the
camp to the navy yard. The work they do
brings out their initiative. They are thrown
on their own resources and oftentimes a're
merely sent out to do a certain thing with
out an officer to direct them. Of course, they
