"WASHINGTON. February 2S.?Four
American soldiers, caught arleep whila
doing sentry fluty iti lite rtrst-linc
trenches. have been sentenced to death,
but General Pershing, although ho ha?>
authority to carry out th? sentences,
has? referred their cases to the War De
part merit for review.
These are the first eases of the kind
since the American troops went to
France. One soldier has been executed
there tor an unspeakable offense on a
French child, and in his case General j
Pershing acted swiftly. without as j
much as referring it to Washington. I
In these case?, however, somo cx- ,
tenuating circumstance may be found ;
for men. tired and nerve worn by front
line trench duty in a hitherto unknown
manner of warfare, to/save them from
the death penalty at the hands of their;
own fellows.
President Wilson, probably in (he end,
will review th^ir cases. Going to sleep
on sentry duty has long been recog
nized as an unforgivable ofTense. pun
ishable by death, and such cases, rare
as they have been in the American
army, have furniehed some of the most
absorbing incidents of its history.

?WASHINGTON, February ?A spe
cial session of the railroad wage com
mission was held to Wear Miss Pauline
Goldmark. sister-in-law of Associate
Justice Rramleis. tell of the employ
ment of women on railroads. She gave
figures to show that women aro be
ing hired in increasing: numbers for
heavy work, her statement contradict
ing in some, instances the testimony
of railroad executives.
Mi^s Goldmark appeared as repre
sentor iv?of the Consumers' Uasuo ol
New York and other organizations. Her
testimony was given Informally and
will not l>e included in the record
until sho has incorporated it in a for
mal statement. Secretary Lane, chair
man, and Hie other members of th?
commission, showed a keen interest In
the general question of women in rail
road work by their frequent questions.
Women first were employed in any
number by the railroads about a year
ag<->. Miss Goldmark said, at the in
stance of the railroad war board. They
were put in clerical positions experi
mentally, but their use has extended
until now they are in the freight yards,
section gangs, shops and roundhouses.
While much of the work is suitable
to them, many occupations Involve
heavy physical strain and other has
nrds. Miss Goldmark doubted the ad
visability of employing women on sec
tion gangs for work out of doors In
ill conditions of weather and without
proper attention to their physical wel
fare.
"In order that there sha.ll be no
tvuFteful use of labor and to reduce
the turnover." she recommended, "it
s important to make an investiga
tion and standardise the work for
ivhic.h women may be employed before
.heir numbers increase. Ono railroad
imploys -10ft on one division and an
other has a total of 1,517 women
ivorkers."
Miss Goldmark said that white ?wo

BETTER MUSIC for
Your Home ....
With the New Edison.
There is the same pride
in owning the new Edi
son that there is in own
ing a twin-six, rather
than an old two-cylinder
car. The truth of the
matter is that the New
Edison Recreation has
made the ordinary rec
ord out-of-date.
Listen to the New Edi
son and you'll agree with
us that it is THE IN
STRUMENT for real
music-lovers.^*
