Dec. 29.?A grass hula-hula skirt is the most appropri ate sort of Red Cross apron to send from Hawaii to Meade. Kans. in the opinion of the promotion committee, and one has been dispatched there to represent Hawaii at a Christmas ba |Raar of the Junior Red Cross of that city. A short time ago a request came ad dressed to "Leading Dry Goods Mer chants" for the donation of an apron to be held at a bazaar given by the children of Meade for the benefit of the Red Cross. According to the let ter, similar requests had been sent to merchants all over the country. The letter was turned over to Fred Halton. secretary of^ the promotion committee, who came" to the conclu sion that a hula-hula skirt would be i just the thing. In his letter to Meade. : Mr. Halton stated that such a skirt, wss the original apron of the old' Hawaiian days, and hoped It would1 add to the success of the Kansas bazaar.

Bj RICHARD SPILLA1YE. Editor of "Commerce and Finance," and Special Writer for the Washington Herald. Aialgied to Vitalise and Humanise the Topic* of Economies aad Reconstruction. (Copyrlfh'., Some of the moat earnest and prominent men in New York have formed an associa tion for the study of what they con sider one of the gravest problems the nation has to solve. That is a substitute for the saloon. - They are not ap proaching the sub ject with any false notions . They know what a bane and source of deg radation the saloon h as been. They know also the sa tf?CWARD SP11LANC l?on has been a focal point, a so cial center for millions 6( persons. They know that to many men home means little more than a place in which to eat and sleep, and that the majority of men have not the re sources within themselves for rational recreation as amusement. They know that liquor drinking Is a habit handed down through the ages, and that by legal enactment a custom so deeply rooted through the centuries cannot be cured unless something takes its place that is nearly as satis factory. Government officials in Washington have no doubt that nation-wide pro hibition is going to precipitate one of the gravest situations this country has faced. They have no chart to guide their course, for this Is the first great country to adopt prohibition. Russia excepted, and that does not j count. They are making provision to meet I the situation as best they can. but their experience thus far serves only to make them appreciate the magni tude of the job they have to handle. The South^-practlcally all of it?is officially ??dry," yet never ha* there been so much moonshining in the South as since prohibitory laws went into effect there and whisky?vile whisky?is sold clandestinely, despite the law. Because it offers profit un dreamt of in former times, moonshin ing has been taken up by men who never engaged in it before. The government found whisky so plentiful in army camps in the South that it was forced to act. It formed, under Col. Daniel Porter, what is known as the 'flying squadron," a special force which has co-operated with State bodies to combat the evil. Nearly 5fl0 illicit stills have been de stroyed by the raiders within seven months. Hundreds of moonshiners have been sent to prison. Other hun dreds await trial. Scores of men. amon? them sheriffs and deputies, have been killed. Many others have been wounded. There has been a war in miniature (about which little has been heard> under way. while the big war in Europe has been in its last phase. Harder In City To discover and destroy an illicit still in the mountains is simple com pared with finding it In the city. In the mountains the smoke of the still can be seen far away and the smell of the liquor carries far where the atmosphere is pure. In a city a still can send its smoke out through a tall chimney flue, and a city ts a place of a thousand mingling odors. Whisky making and beer making do not require complicated machin ery. some stills are crude and cheap. The government has raided places in which whisky, or what passed for whisky, was made In an old ice cream freezer. I sually the paraphernalia is little more than some copper kettles the ?worm," or pipes, and the cooling vessels. -Moonshining is going to plav'a large Part in the news of the country after July 1, next. It is going to be known where it never was established before. IS going to be widespread in every great city. ' Million l)ruK Addicts. Drucr addiction is a more insidious and grisly evil than liquor drinking. It is Stated on authority of govern ment officials that there are 1.000,000 known drug addicts in America, and is estimated that there are 50?!000 persons who are secret addicts Nearly every criminal is a drug ad dint. There is a direct relationship between drug addiction and crime The drug addict will commit any act in order to gpt money to buy drugs. Of all the "dope"'?cocaine, morphine opium, heroin, etc.-heroin is the worst and the vilest. Of the 500.000 secret addicts most have become victims through not having the physical or moral strength to stop the use of drugs to which they had become ac customed in a serious or painful ill ness. It is betraying no confidence tc say the government officials who have studied the questions of liquor and drugs fear nation-wide prohibition will spread the drug evil. The experiences from partial pro hibition give slight basis for calcula tion as to the effect of total prohibi tion. There is a lot of liquor con sumed in "dry" States. One Northern fu ? 'urni*hes an example. To check the flow of liquor into that state rail road employes were invested with po lice power, and. to stir their ardor, they shared in the fines imposed or the money obtained from confiscated wet goods. In the principal station of the lead ing city of the State the baggage master, so that he could open everv thing, bought every kind and variety of key. He captured lots of whisky. ?nd for a time profited at the rate or coo a day. ? ^.i,hOW.' *!!'' fr?m the traveling public, for the baggage man was so J assiduous In hunting whisky that h? could not examine In one day all the baggage that arrived, so he let it pile up. Travelers appealed to the Rail road Administration. The State au thorities were Inclined to back up the baggage man a% an officer of the law. but when such congestion and delay resulted as to make many persons threaten suit or physical violence there was a compromise. Now the search is not so rigid. POLEfc AND HUNS CLASH. Seven Killed. Eighty Wounded in Fight at Posen.

The first of 10.000 auto tags for 1919 issued by Superintendent of Licenses Coombs has been secured by Representative Ben Johnson. To date 10,000 licenses have been taken out by autoists. More than fifty requests had been made for tag No. 1. but Representa tive Johnson's letter of three months ago containing his request was given preference. Although the law states that tags must be obtained by January 1, the Commissioners have been in the habit of extending the time to the 31st. The rates arc as follows: For each vehicle of more than 23 horsepower and not exceeding 30 horsepower. $3; for each vehicle of more that 30 horsepower, $10; for each vehicle of, 24 horsepower or less, and ?2 for each motorcycle or similar ve hicle. 1 BIG STANDING ARMY NEEDED FOR 2 YEARS J IN EUROPE BY ALLIES CONTINUED FKOM PAGE ONE at once. That means that" half our army of 3.000.000 men are to return to peaceful pursuits. The labor situ ation. lack of food and transporta tion and other difficulties prevent a greater demobilization at this time. "But it must be borne in mind that among the leaders of all the allied armies the opinion is held that if the* new nations of Europe are to be protected from Bolshevism and the lawlessless of- untrained men. Europe must maintain larger armies for two years longer than she did in peace times. I do not means that the fiew young republics need the pressure of armed forces, but that they must be able to pro tect themselves from the unrest which any period of reconstruction breeds. It is certain that such thought will be expressed strongly at the Peace Conferenee. "In this policing of Europe, if you so care to define it, _the use of American troops would be ideal. They disclosed themselves to us as of the finest fighting men of the world. Their superior equipment, their-, ardent spirit in battle, their daring, resourcefulness and. above all, their ability to work with troops of other nations without friction, prove them as capable of arfy task. In particular I must praise their elastic administration of their busi ness as soldiers. Our army is tied by red tape, as is every army in Europe. The Americans have an ad ministration which ?,ives to every officer powers and initiative envied by every European officer. Under | this American system, great results are quickly achieved. The greatest lesson of the war to our executive officers and staff men was the lesson taught by the study of the Ameri can army's administrative system. "Now as to the military lessons which the man in the field has learn ed from the fearful war just passed. War is passed, we all hope, but we can consider what manner of armies would be selected if another war should come. It is not easy to pre dict how wars will be made. All theories of war making, I except none, were found to be obselete in the fighting just ended. What we thought would happen, did not hap pen. and what we counted as of lit tle value proved of great value. Infantry Grentent Factor. "The infantry will always be the greatest factor in war. No matter what may be invented, men must be sent into battle to overcome other men. Numbers must always count. Cavalry cannot be discarded yet and artillery, of course, must be greatly increased in the armies of the future, for the greater the artillery strength, the smaller the casualties of the infantry. "Great progress will be made in the air. But In this war we learned that men can fight underground. And If * means is found of sending thousands of air fighters into battle at onqe. the soldier will only dig the deeper to escape their bombs, and until he is dislodged, ttie army of occupation can not advance. The airplane has not been successful as a means of attack ing troop? on the ground. "Out of the war Italy has gained^a great pride and a new spirit. Never before was the national spirit of Italy more healthy. Italy's record in the war, which she financed for the most part by her own efforts, will bring confidence to the Americans who wish to invest in Italian securities. A great era of industrial progress lies Just be fore the people of Italy." YOUNG ROOSEVELT'S NEMESIS, 24, STRUTS AROUND COBLENZ German Aviator, Who Brought Down Ameri caru-as Cocky as They Come, Assigned to Repair Planes Taken bv Allies. With the American Army of Occu pation, Coblenz, Dec. 29.?Lieut. Taske, > the German aviator, who is said to be ' the man who killed Lieut. Quentin j Roosevelt, of the American army, in ? an air duel, arrived at Coblenz toda.*. He is one of a bunch of fliers sent | by the German army to repair and de liver to the Americans about forty ? pianos which have been turned over I to them in accordance with the terms ! of the armistice. The planes are ali of the fast Fokker type. I Refore delivering- them Taske ana ! his companions will make flyng tests. The planes are now being assembled at what is known as Spitzburg Bar racks. an old German military train ing camp on k picturesque hill over looking Coblenz. There was no ade quate flying field in this vicintv, but the Americans are constructing one there. "Tod** Sloan'* Mse. Taske is a little fellow about the size of "Tod" Sloan. Moreover, he is about as cocky as they come. He was strutting around town today in full uniform, with his blue cap slanted over his ear and his head half buried in a fur collar. On his chest he wears the gold insignia of a flyer, along with black and white ribbons, indicating that he has won the iron cross, both cf the first and second classes. He attended the opera after visit ing th? billeting officer and being assigned to the home of Herr Wer ner. 20 Cusanos Strasse. This morn ing he became restless and moved out to the barracks at Spitzburg. They said at the Werner house that he was muttering something about his uniform when he left. Tn the English sector where he was located before coming here, Taske was not allowed to wear his uniform, hut German officers actually on duty in Coblenze are permitted to retain their military apparel. There were not many of them left. They have to keep certain hours and report regularly. Taske was down at American head quarters tonight reporting in. He seemed enthriled by the lighted Christmas tree which stands over the old fortress rrf Ehronbreitstein, across the Rhine, like a beacon of hope. Air Killed with Sleet. It was sleeting tonight. The air was so thickly filled with particles of ice that it was hard to distinguish objects far away?but the glowing tree blazed out of the darkness as brilliantly as that star which guided three wise men in the long ago. Taske stared at the scene over his fur collar for some minutes. He is about 24 years old. He is said to admit frankly that he is the best flyer in the German army. This was suggested to an older Gei man officer who was among the party left at Coblenz to complete the delivery of material 10 the mericans. He shook his head. He said Taske is pretty well known, but hardly in the clays with Haupt mann. Max Mueller, or another fel low who started life as a roofer. The name of this last chap escaped u.?*. but we gathered from what the officer said that he was famed throughout Deutschland. The officer kept laying stress on the fact that he was a Koofer. Then he took pains to mention that Max Mueller began as an under-officer, but someone remind ed hiin that Eddie Rickenbacker, America's greatest ace. was originally a sergeant. Taske claims to have downed thirty-two British, French and American planes. Met linn Machines. Ou#?ntin Roosevelt was flying with a party of four or five other Ameri can aviators in the vicinity of Fere en-Tard?*nois in France when they encountered a party of German ma chines. Roosevelt left his group and made a fearless dash at the bunch of Boche*. One of them pulled off from the . group and met him. This is sup ' posed to have been Taske. In the fight which followed the young American was shot down. His body was later recovered and buriea by the Germans who have always expressed their greatest admiration for his bravery. ' Quentin Roosevelt's elder brother. Theodore Roosevelt, jr.. is tonight commanding the Twenty-sixth in fantry across the Rhine.

J THE VICK CHEMICAL COMPANY, GREENSBORO, nTc! | i ? ?H DECK OFFICERS j TO GET RAISE! * Atlantic and Gulf Service x Men Affected By Ship Board Ruling. A new wage scale for licensed deck f and engine-room officers of vessels in j the Atlantic and Gulf service was an- j pounced yesterday by the special com- ! nilttee to which the question of read- j ju^ment was referred. The new scale eliminates all bo nuses. retains the present coastwise ! scale for all service and reclassifies the sizes of vessels by'abolishing the lowest class and making one for all ! fingle-screw vessels of less than 5,001 I tons and twin-screw vessels of less ' than 3,501 ton. The reclassification has the effect of increasing the wages of officers in the former lowest class to the level of nex! higher, which, und4r the award, be comes the lowest. The new scale becomes effective for all licensed officers signing on and after January 1, 1919. and is to remairi in effect until May L subject to re vision at any time thereafter upon thirty days' written notice by any of the interested parties to the Shipping Board. The committee is composed of Rob ert P. Ba>s. of the Whipping Board, chairman; Franklin D. Mooney and William S. Brown. It was chosen by the employers and licensed officers, and went into session prior to the signing of the armistice. Since that time, the committee says In the award, the committee was un able to agree as to the extent to which the award should be manda tory upon American vessels The ) scale U therefore made mandator}' upon all veaaels owned or under miui- | sition by the Shipping Board and is ! nuanimously urged on all private j owner? and operator* of ve?eli not under requisition.

In an addres* Sunday evening at Theo*oph>ca.l Hall. 12K H afreet north, west MUc Isabel B Holbrook. na tional lecturer of the Thcosophical So ciety, read and expounded various passages from the ancient Book of Enoch. The philosophy and teachings of this holy book, referred to In the New Testament in the Epistle to W. Jude. and whose antiquity probably antedates the Penteteuch. she showed to be strikingly similar and in evident accord with the liberal and advanced philosophy of today as promulgated by the Theosophiral Society. The Greek version of the Book of w Enoch, it was stated, was known to the early fathers of the Ohristiafi Church, but during the eighth oen^** tarjr. A. D.. It seemed to have sunk into complete oblivion. The extant copies of the book in English are translations from the Ethioplc version discovered in comparatively recent years, and which is supposed to have been copied from the ancient Chaldean or a still more archaic language. The subject of the lecture. "Worship Not the Visible,* was taken from the twenty-fifth chapter of the Book of Enoch, this being the exhortation of an angel to the venerable prophet while he was passing through th* seven realms or planes of celestial ex istence. "Class Ad" Advertising Class Ad advertising serves the individual as effectually as display advertis ing serves the business establishment. The merchant finds the answer to his selling problems in advertising. The individual who has property to sell, or to rent; who has something of value, of which he has no more need, to offer; who wants to find a capable worker or to secure a better job?to this man, or to these men or women. Class Ad advertising is a practicable thing, inexpensive and quick to achieve results. * This City Is Growing Bigger All the Time This city is growing bigger all the time?and people who are looking for homes do not find it practicable to make a personal tour of the town. They turn to the "Class Ad" columns and get their facts about offerings. Then they investigate. When the^ go "home-hunting" they go on specific errands, not merely to canvass some particular section of the city in a general way. There's a Tenant to Be Found There's a tenant to be found for every vacant store or office or workshop in the city; and for every vacant house, apartment or studio. This assumes that the place offered is desirable and that the rental is reasonable. The tenant, however, has formed the habit of getting his facts through the "Class Ad" columns. He assumes that desirable offerings will be made there?and he is nearly always right in this. Do'Yo,u Own Real Estate? Do you own real estate which is of no immediate use to you? Have you made investments in lots, with a view to future improvements; and do you find it impos sible to make these improvements now? You should be able to sell advantageously, realizing a fair profit on your original investment and subsequent carrying charges. Use The Herald "Class Ads." That Idle Car of Yours That idle car of yours would be useful and valuable to somebody else. Why not put it in the market and realize its full value in cash? Use The Herald "Class Ads" columns to get your selling message to prospective buyers. The expense will be nominal; the result is usually achieved quickly. If You Want to Sub-Let Your Apartment If you want to sub-let your apartment or your house, either furnished or unfur nished, your problem is to find a responsible tenant. It's a problem for Herald "Class Ads." Make your proposition clear, definite. It will attract the attention of home seekers?for there are thousands of people in the city who would be glad to find the opportunity to sub-lease a home on reasonable terms. Are You Earning Too Little? Are you earning too little? If you are capable and ambitious you can find a position in which you can earn a salary matching your real worth. Put your mes sage into a Herald "Class Ad." It will reach employers. There are more opportuni ties for efficient workers than ever before. But these opportunities will not come to one unsought. You must find them. Look Over the "Class Ads' If you have a selling task which might be carried through quickly by utilizing "Class Ads," study the ads of others which bear on the same tasks. Then make your "copy" a little better than the average. Git into the spirit of "Class Ads." Hun dreds of others utilize these little ads prof'tably. You can. too. and if you want expert copy service, phone the "Class Ad" Dept., Main 3300. THE WASHINGTON HERALD "Class Ad" Dept., Main 3300
