Full Strength of
THIRTEEN MEN QUIT JOBS
The resignation of thirteen mem
bers of the force during the past week,
while only two men were appointed,
leaves the police department facing a
more serious shortage of men than at
any time since the beginning of the
The full strength of the department
should be 800. There are now 150
Resignations of Week.
Among those who resigned during
tho past eight days was Detective
Henry A. Cole of the eighth precinct,
who received a commission as first
lieutenant in the Quartermaster
Corps of the Army. Cole was in the
Army prior to his appointment to the.
force October 25, 1904. j
Another was Jacob P. Freeh, who i
was detailed for some time at the j
White House and who recently has
been acting as sergeaant in the fifth
precinct. Freeh has been on the
force since 1901.
Policeman J. T. Owens, colored,
ninth precinct, resigned a few days
ago after seventeen years' service.
Policeman Ira E. Keck of the second
precinct, who also auit last week, has
been on the force since 1908. Traffic
Policeman M. A. Morris, stationed at
9th and G streets, resigned to ac
cept a commission as second lieuten
ant in the Army.
Private Howard B. Miller of? the
fourth precinct, who has been on the
vice squad for the past year, also
tendered his resignation last week.
Other policement who resigned after
comparatively short terms of service are
J. E. Phillips of the third precinct,
A. A. Martin of the fourth. M. F.
Geary of the first, W. H. Lambert, jr.,
of the first, Stephen F. Goggins of
the eighth, J. S. Matthews of the
seventh and Joseph Junghans of the
Not Enough to Idve On.
Several of these men stated in their
letters of resignation that they could
no longer support themselves and
their families on the salary the police
Maj. Pullman stated last night that
he realized the time has passed when
members of the force can live
on the salaries the department has
to offer. He said action by Congress
to increase the policeman's pay seem
ed to be the only way to stop resig
nations. The major called attention
to the fact that more than sixty for
mer members of the force are now in
the military service.
New men on the force receive only
$990 a year. When promoted to class
2 they receive $1,188, and when they
reach class 3 after eight years of
service they are paid $1,260 a year. I
In his latest report to the Commis- j
sioners, Maj. Pullman asked that the 1
new men be paid $1,080 a year, class i
2 men, $1,200, and class 3, $1,320. |
These increases were included in the !
District appropriation bill, which has j
passed the House, and is now await
ing action in the Senate. Maj. Pull
man feels that if these increases are
granted less trouble will be expe
rienced in getting tiew men.
The two appointees last week were

SOLDIER AT FRONT
No "Meatless Days" in His
Regiment, He Says.
Cheered by Peasants.
Graphic stories of life at the front
are told in a letter to J. B. Spalding,
1232 U street northwest, from Sergt.
Victor M. Denis of the 69th Machine
Gun Battalion, son* of August V.
Denis, a former Washington business
man. Sergt. Denis lived in Washing
ton a number of years, but later
moved to Brooklyn, N. Y., where he
enlisted at the outbreak of the war.
The letter says, in part:
"Our bunch has been in some
skirmishes, and, as the 'old 69th'
stands for, we have done a good bit
and 1ip.ve come out on the top. It is
needless to say that some casualties
have occurred, for you will find in
every skirmish some one has to be
sacrificed. But our men are of that
opinion and feeling that if they were
allowed to do what they want to do
they would go right through without
any let up, man after man.
Praises Conservers at Home.
"We will surely be able to tell a
great deal to the folks back in the
U. S. A. who are also doing their bit,
but in a different manner. W<5 can
all appreciate it, for while you are
having meatless days we are not. As
the old saying goes, 'The Army moves
en its belly.' It surely does, for if the
men haven't? enough in their stomachs
they can't do what is expected of
tl'em. The conservation of food back
ho^e is a lifesaver for us over here.

it is impossible to buy our usual

think of eating less than six eggs in
omelette form, with bread and coffee.
Of course that is not the govern
ment ration, but we used to buy them
from the townspeople.
"All of the French peasants with
whom we have come in contact have
treated us royally, and we surely did
make use of them last winter during
our four-day hikes with packs, and
snow a foot deep, and if one of us
dropped out we knew we would freeze

FIRST AMERICAN "ACE"

GOLPENTAL.E, Wash., June 8.?
Prof. W. W. Campbell of Lick Ob
servatory, at Mount Hamilton, Cal.,
who is here to study the phenomena
of today's solar eclipse, received a ca
blegram from France today stating
that his son, Lieut. Douglass Camp
bell, an American aviator, was
slightly w*ounded. Campbell is the
The cablegram brought Jittle in
formation beyond the fact that young
Campbell was wounded in action and
that his injury was not serious.
When informed several days ago of
his son's latest exploit in bringing
down his sixth enemy airplane. Prof.
Campbell said that his son is a good
athlete and. chauffeur, quick to de
cide and quick to act wit/.out fear.
When a friend spoke of the dangers
of the aviation service, the scientist
"A man's life should not be meas
ured in years, but by what he accom
plishes. My son's letters say he is
happy to be over there."
The honor of being known a^ his
country's first aviation "ace" was
earned spectacularly by Lieut. Doug
lass Campbell on May 31. It was a
twenty-minute air battle in which his
opponent refused to surrender, but
accepted instead the alternative of
being shot down by the American.
Lieut. Campbell sighted the German
at a height og 4,500 meters. The Ger
man tried to escape when his am
munition became exhausted, by flee
ing toward his own lines. Campbell
got on his tail and signaled to him
the opportunity of landing safely on
French soil. The German declined.
"I did not like the idea of shooting
him down when he was not fighting,"
Campbell said later, "but I could not
let him get away."
A stream of incendiary bullets end
ed the German's career.
