The commission, which Is headed ? by the prince, who is a member of the I royal family, a cousin to the King of ? Denmark, and commander of the ! Danish navy, arrived yesterday morn ing at New York. The members were I met in Washington by Secretary of the Navy Daniels and escorted to , their hotel. Secretary Lansing ejeort i ed the Prince to the White House I la.?t evening and later the entire ; commission was entertained a.t din ? ner by Secretary and Mrs. panlels. I In announcing the arrival of the disti ? ^ ui ??hod forelgpen, the Navy Department said : "The visit of the commission ts | purely a naval mission and Ita tour Iof the country will include the prin cipal points of naval activity, In - lu'ling the munitions plants, train | ine: camps and the larger shipbuilding plants." VICE INQUIRY IN CHICAGO. Major Hatch Sent by Daniels to Continue Clean-up. Secretary Panici? announced yes terday that he hart sent MaJ. C. B. r Hatch of the Marine Torpe to chi j capo to co-operate with Capt. Mof fett, commandant of the Great Lak.-s Naval Training station in the ! vice investigations undertaken by ?the latter. Secretary Daniela ?aid? I "I have not received any report from rapt. Moffett hut I thought It ad visable to send MaJ. Hatch for the reason that he has done excellent work at Tensacola, Philadelphia and ; elsewhere for the navy when simi lar charges were to be lnvesti I gated." That Rookie from the 13th Squad. By p. l. crosby t^,/F<;eor/e were only with ne NOw?r Army and I MaJ. Gen. Clarence C. Williams. chief of ordnance, is desirous of maintaining a more or leas constant flow of ordnance officers between this country and France. It la proposed to bring home officers after a period of service ln France and thus have the benefit, for the design, production, and other work in this country of the experience those officers have ob tained In the ordinance depots, fixed and mobile repair shops, service ot eupply, etc.. in France and to replace these officers by a corresponding number from this country. Of course, more or less difficulties are involved in carrying this policy into effect, for it is appreciated that den. Persh ! ing will be loath to give up many officers now engaged on important duties. Therefore the extent to which the scheme will be carried into effect will depend largely upon con ditions and demands In France. In the meantime the division heads jf the ordnance office at Washington have been ordered to go to France ? for Inspection and observation of the ordnance establishment there and then return to Washington and re sume their duties, and some of them already have gone. Those who have ( gone or will go Include Hrig. Gen, i William S. Peirce, head of the ad ministration division; Brig. Gen. John H. Rice, of the engineering and technical division; Col. Samuel Mc Roberts. of the procurement division; Col. Tha?es I* Ames, of the supply division, and Col. L'H. Rutrgles, of ?the inspection division; and Col John T. Thompson, recently detailed for duty as director of arsenals. This ts a new place just established in the ordnance office in order that there may be .supervision and co-ordina tion of th** industrial activities of the various government manufactur ing arsenals. In addition. Col. Thompson will have general super vision of the instruction system for both officers ani enlisted men of the ordnance department, at home and abroad. He has as his executive as sistant MaJ. Lewis P. Johnston, ord nance depart mont. National Army The selection of Col. Thompson for this important place is a particularly appropriate one in view of his suc cessful work in establish! ? g plants for the manufacture of the modified ^lavy News Enfield shoulder rifle and ln produc ing the piece in large quantities. Twenty-eight differeni models of pistols and revolvers requiring cart ridge of four different elites .ara In uae in the German army, according to the army "Verordnungsblatt/* The American troops have one model pis tol and one model revolver, both shooting the same caliber ammunition. Standardisation gives the Americans an advantage In this regard. The United States also haa stand ardized Its rifle. Both the model 1917 and the Springfield shoot the same caliber ammunition. Army, navy and Marine Corps use the same rifles, re volvers and pistols. The Navy Department has received a dispatch stating that Knstgn P. J. Barnes, IT. 8. Naval Reserve Flying Corps, operating in Kuropean waters, has established a new endurance rec ord for the "blimp" type of airship by remaining in the air 30 hours and 30 minutes. At the time Ensign Barnes enrolled In the Naval Reserve Flying Corps his home was in Minneapolis. An officers' training camp for the training of ?VW men from civil life will be established by the Quartermaster ?'orpa at Camp Joeeph K. Johnston, Jacksonville, Fla. The camp will be under the control of the quartermas ter general of the army and the train ing will cover a course of instruction of approximately three month?. Grad uates of the camp who Are commis sioned will be assigned for duty with the conservation and reclamation division of the Quartermaster Corpa. The men selected for attendance at this camp are to be over the draft age and subject to the prescribed physical examination. While at this camp they will receive the pay of a private, first class, of the Quarter master Corps, $33 per month, and will be furnished with clothing, equipment and subsistence. As the result of a visit of Inspec tion by the advisory committee on religious and educational activity in the army and navy a number of changes have been made in the In structional courses In the training chool for army chaplains at Camp Zachary Taylor. Mor** ?tress will be laid tn future upon acquainting the students^with the work of tbe army and navy commissions on training camp ac tivities and all related war activ ities, particularly those within the camps, such as the T. M. C. ?.. Knights of Columbus, Jewish Wel fare Board, etc. Each of these groups has been asked to detail a representative to aet aa a liaison agent. These representatives will become members of the school fac ulty. The committee has recommended that a handbook be prepared con taining a variety of Information to chaplains, including a brief state ment of the principal fundamental tenets of the varloua religious de nominations, so as to giva to each chaplain an Intelligent understand ing of th? men whom he must serve of denominations other then his own. This recommendation has been approved. Increase of practical field work under the guidance of experienced chaplains has been ordered, and the faculty Is to be augmented as soon as possible by the presence of chap lains who have had field experience at the front. Other recommendations concur red In call for a short review of the great events ln our history and the fundamental prlnciplea of our gov ernment; a more Intensive militsry training: some little additional time each day for personal religious ex ercises: prayers, reading the Scrip tures, etc.: an Increased library. with g blbllogrsphy of helpful books: and the conversion of the last day of the course Into s day of prayer or spiritual retreat for all > candidates, the differing rtflfffooa bodies to meet separately or to- ! gether. according to their own ml? Hereafter, so far as practicable, all ! chaplains will be appointed from among those who have ?Mioressfnllv completed the course of training provided for In this aehool. 105 Deaths, 120 Birth?.
