Essential aid to the har monious solution of the world's present menacing problems can be extended by encouraging the circula tion and distribution of The Christian Science Monitor, the interpreter of those ideals toward which the world is being so rapidly impelled.

MAKING EARLY STARI L-3t Year Now Surpasse Is Report?Rooms Still Being Registered, On account of the early "get- | away" in garden work, Washing-j ton war gardens are expected this jear to surpase by tit the gardens of last year, accordine; to a report made by E. F. Colliulay. chairman of the District Council of Defense Gardens Committee, at a meeting of the council in the District Build in?; yesterday. Interest aroused by the addresses of H. M. Conolly. according to the report, is one of the chief factors in the speedy start of the work thi? sear. All Vaeaat trnta Wante-I. Mi Cilladay put In a plea <"<??" ?"' varani lots in th?? city, for use as war gardens, on account of the in creased demand for space over last "We can use all vacant land of fered us." Mr. Colladay stated. "It must have sume degree of fertility It is to be hoped I hat the response? to this appeal will b. prompt and cenerai, so lhat n.? ??ile lot mav reproach tlie owner for hi? 1??'?? of patriotism as the sesTson ad yunces' It was slated that the Fe?leration of Clti-ens' Associations had com pleted its canvass for rooms, and that the room registration oltlce. through its appeals, is receiving some rooms day by day. The siip ply has mot been diminished In the last month, according to the report, but It will be no means be suffi cient for the employes who are to come, as shown by estimates of the Civil Service Commission. Legal Advl?re for Ornttee?. The committee on legal problem? reported that In response to the re imest of the council for the appoint ment of a legal committee to ad\is? men who are drafted as to their af fairs, the District Bar Association had decided that all Its members would furnish such service free to drafted men. The report staled that the question of any advice which might he neecs sary in connecflon with claims for compensation or insurance of men In the service was also to be worked out by the Bar Association. lespective merits of certain types of ?runa, particularly of the Lewis ?un. which had proven most efficient under British use, the Secretary of War. im mediately following the passage by Congress of the ?12.UO0.ii0O machine gun appropriation late in IMS. appointed a special board to "consider and make r?H*ommendations as to whether a sin gle type of machine rifle, using small arms ammunition, is needed for the service, and the type or types that should he procured.'* On October 24. 191?. the board sub mitted a preliminary report. It recom mended that available funds be spent for 4.60O Viekers guns and that further tests should be conducted in May. 1317. On the basis of this recommendation nil the funds at the disposal of the ordnance department except about ?'l.-AKf.OOO were used in placing an order lor Viekers guns, in December. ISM. War was declared on April G. 1917. No further competitive tests of ma chine guns had been made by the War department board, but in the mean time the Lewis gun, chambered for American ammunition, had been sub mitted (for the first time thus cham bered!, to the Navy Department and found to perform satisfactorily. Orders Qalekly Place.. Instead of delaying until the army board had completed its tests, or ders for machine guns, up to the total productive capacity of every machine gun plant in thc country, were placed as fast as the fund? were made available by Congres?. The balance of J1..-.00.000 available when war was declared was utilized in an order for Lewis guns made on April 12?six days after the declara tion of war. Steps were immediately taken, also, to increase our capa? ity for making macliine guns. New- plants and additions to existing plants were arranged for. In the case of the Lewi? gun. 11.000,000 was spent ? extending the savage arms plant. this expenditure being provided for in the price to be paid for the guns. The tests of the special machine ?-nu board did not for one day de lav the placing of orders for ma inine guns after the declaration of war. The selection of the Browning heavy machine gun and the Brown ?ng light automatic rifle as the most ? ?tcient guns of their types merely aded two new weapons on which later production could be centered. The extent to which we have ex panded our machine gun program Is -hown by the recommendation of War College experts that the Browning light air-cooled rifle be furnished to infantry at the rate of "at least eight per company," in addition to each regimental complement of heavy type machine guns, whereas? our old pro gram ?ailed for a total of only four per regiment. Effective Rifle.. These light, highly portable ma chine guns, which may be carried like ;>n ordinary rifle and fired cither from hip or shoulder, tremendously j lengthen the attacking power of in ai? try. The ability of the Browning heavy water-cooled gun to withstand severe nd long continued firing Is shown by lie fact that under test It showed "such remarkable reliability of func i?n during the firing of over 30, iu shots that a further teat of 20. ii was fired by the same gun for en liurance." The only stoppage resulted after 30.v?o shots, and this was from overheating. In addition to machine guns for in fantry work, many thousands will be required to equip our fighting air planes. On recommendation of Gen. Per ching, at least two heavy Yhkers -'uns will be mounted on each plane, synchronised so as to Are between the propeller blades. An equal number of Lewis guns will be carried, mounted to give greatest tlexibllity of fire in any direction. To provide adequate reserves, wc are scheduling three Vlckers and three Lewi? guns for each plane. ? < outlined tomorrow.) "*f?w Pre scribed bj tbe he.4 IV. Y. Speclal lst?. G.? ?lller.
