Army and Navy News
ARMY transportation service in
the month of June reached
the very peak of moving
troops by water transporta
tion. During: that month 361,000 men
In France embarked for home, and in
? til# same period 345,000 from France
landed in the United States. In the
history of the "world, nothing has ap
proached this record. With all the de
" mard of our armies for men when the
German drive was at its height, un
der the conditions then prevailing to
hamper the transports, it was not pos
sible to equal the record now made in
returning the troops. Brig. Gen.
Frank T. Hines has kept the word he
pledged to the men in the camp at
Brest, begging to come home. He said
to them, man to man. "I will get you
back a little faster than 1 took you
over," and he meant it.
The evidence is positive that, in the
early days of 1918. the malfunctioning
War Department, the railroads and the
Shipping Board were unequal to the
task of transporting the rapidly grow
ing armies to the scene of action. Then
the administration turned the job over
to Gen. Goethals, who, after the initial
work of clearing the port terminals ,
of congestion, placed Gen. Hines in ;
charge of the transportation job.
Gen. Hines moved the troops from
the training camps to the'embarkation
camps and placed them on the great
fleet of transports, which in the course
of 'time he succeeded in assembling,
and sent them to France. This was
Tiot accomplished without the aid of
the Navy. It is the boast of the direr
tor of transportation that the sister j
services worked as one in the comnwn
cause of sending the Army over. The
Army secured the ships and put the
men aboard. When the cables were
loosed from the piers the Navy took
charge and handled the ships with
their precious freight of men and sup
plifcs. took charge of their sailings and
futyiished the destroyer and cruiser
codfvoys, co-operated with the British ,
an| French fleets to conduct the trans- j
potts through the U-boat-infested i
waiters. and,saw them over and back j
in safety.
Ijt took time to accomplish this re
sult and in the interval creating this
transport fleet the number of men
to -be sent over was small; but with
th?i' growth of the organization the
meh that the Huns called "the un
trained hordes of America" began to
pour over the Atlantic carrying with i
tham the "punch" that turned thej
tide of German onslaught into allied j
victory. Then came the day that |
brought an end to Herman hopes and
began the time of her humiliation.
Ofi that day the Army began a re
vere e movement of the machinery and
the great idea was to return Ameri
can troops, the war being over, to
their homes. How well this has been
done the whole world knows. From
no*f on the transportation service
will, with rhe lessened number of
troops to be returned, gradually re
duce its forces. Its greatest pres
?ure is over. The bulk of the Ameri
can. Army is on American shores once
mote. The whole world knows that,
when the Army and the Navy get
under a job. something gives way.
Their joint operation has given a
new idea of the power of American
efficiency.
Bat the work of the Army trans
portation service did not end at the
poiqts of debarkation. Responsibility
conjinued over the debarkation camps
and the transfer of the troops by
rail or otherwise back to their poinfs
of demobilization. So carefully are
these plane worked out and carried
out..that the delay for clearance in
these camps has been reduced to a
minimum. The detention period
seldom exceeds two days and often
doep not take twenty-four hours. The
bitterest critic of delav in the dis
charge of the men from the Army has
no abusive word for the way the men
are sent home from auroad.

The bureau of military affairs, of
which Ma. Gen Jesse Mcl. Carter is the
chief. finds
Beconstrnction of many new
the National Guard. dail> in lts
problems
?(forts to direct from the federal stand
point the reconstrction of the National
Guard. As soon as the President signs
the Army appropriation bill the War
Department will have available all
the funds it requires to restore the
guard to a firm foundation, and to
rebild that depleted organization.
The drafting of the state troops into
the federal service reduced the guard
to a handful and but few scattered
companies and battalions have been
accepted and equipped since the sign
ing of the armistice.
It is quite feasible to rebuild the
organization along the former lines,
but it is doubtful whether the states
or the federal government are willing
to go back to the old conditions. It
now seems possible, with the per
sonnel which has had actual combat
experience or at least excellent train
ing in camps in this or the other
side of the water, to cast a National
Guard on much stronger lines than
heretofore. Just what shape this de
velopment w ill take is hard to de- .
termine, for the nation has no mill- I
tary policy. It is clear to any one I
who will think- that the National
Guard, considered as a means of I
national defense. In order to meet j
that esd, and the Regular Army must I
be made to harmonize. The national I
defease act prescribes that the guard I
XB become entitled to federal aid,
tynet conform in drill and equipment
fle the organization of the Regular
ty. That is desirable, but alone it
!? not sufficient to secure the co-ordina
tion that must exist to produce a
homogeneous force composed of reg
ulars and guardsmen.
The national guardsmen made a '
fine record for fighting ability in j
Kurape; and they did it under ex
tremely adverse circumstances In j
all guard divisions a considerable j
portion of the men who w?-n- acrors i
wvro \oiunte?r* who had not m .>
service until they entered the guard; 1
and iturnany of them in appreciable |
numSer were drafted nen alf-j with- i
out military experiei^-e. Many of tlie !
guard officers were unable to con- I
tinue with their commands; and new
and frequently inexper:-?n< "d officers
replaced them, green officers mm
manding green men. There was
another serious hindrance tc the de
velopment of guard divisions, one
not generally understood. A iiviiion
commander had to develop many
specially trained troops such as ;
Signalmen. wagoners. electricians,
carpenters, painters, motormen. wood- I
choppers and sawyers and some hun- I
dred other specialists. In the earlier ;
days of the war there was no per- j
sonnel section that selected and as- !
signed such troops to the several ;
divisions or for early transport to !
Gen. Pershing's army. Men were
drawn into the National (liiard or
assigned to it from the draftees as
the "run of the mill." without re
gard to special qualifications. Kach
division had then to develop its
own special troops. Rut Gen. Persh
ing was constantly calling for special
troops. The call from the fighting
front was imperative. There was but
one source of supply, the most ad
vanced divisional camps, and those
were the camps of the National Guard.
And the Army kept taking the most
developed men from each division,
thus delaying the training and weak
ening the efficiency of the division.
Those are conditions which should
sever again be possible. Military
experts see the necessity, ;n recon
structing the guard, of putting it
on such basis that it shall be as
nearly complete as possible; that only
those men who are prepared to serve
in any campaign In defense of the
country and who are professionally and
physically fit for such service re
ceive commissions; that maneuvers
be planned b> which all the units
Ct each guard division will receive its
summer training together under com
mand of brigade and divisional com
manders who are likely to command
such a body in actual hostilities.
Thess really Interested in a military
I policy In which the guard shall play
an important role are advocating: a
course of universal training that shall
be as short and thorough as it can
be made with a part of the training
To be completed in either the Regular
Army or in the guard at the elec
tion of the young man. They are
arguing that it is now recognized
that the state has the right to call
upon every man to perform military
service for the state in case of such
I need as existed in 1917-18; and that
; it is the recipocal duty of the state
l to give those men the military prepa
ration that will either p?M the fear of
the Lord into the hearts of any pos
sible enemies and so prevent war; or
if they force war upon us. to carry
it on with the least possible loss eco
nomically and in man-power.
One factor makes for the efficiency
of the new National Guard; and that
is found in the short-sighted policy
of t'ongress. which has ?eft the Army
with no means of retaining more than
a tithe of the efficient and now well j
trained emergency officers in the
army.
Army legislation will have sent
most of them back to civilian life
in the next few months. This is the
golden opportunity for the guard to
gather into its ranks a lot of virile
I young officers of the best type to be
j found. Many of them enter the
j Officers' Reserve Corps; but they are
i needed, sadly needed, in the unhuild
| ing ol a great National Guard which
j may have in its organization the life
i 8'* ing biood of the young men
(officers and enlisted men who had the
I actual soldiering and a true devotion
to the ideals of a free and indepen
i dent I'nited States.

This new provision that gives rec

to accept a commission, although it
binds him to render annual service
and is a strong spur to his ambition

;THE OTHER ANCLE
Costs of Wars.
BV KIRK MILLER.
The high cost of fighting has flop
ped so far north recently that it's
setting so a nation can't afford to
fight any more. It's cheaper to run
than to fight, especially if the run
ning is down hiil. Nineteen months
of war cost L'ncle Satn 530,000,000,000
flat. That means his pocketbook was
the shape of a Chi Ids pancake when
the armistice cured the fighting The
star-spangled purse was flatter than
a pan of_clabber rrrtlk dropped from
the dome of the Capitol. After that
European smear that Great Britain
won for us, the nation's pocketbook
had only two dimensions, length and
width. .N'o more thickness than there
is between this minute and the next.
Back in the good old days when
a couple of nations could conduct a
sociable little war without the whole
world horning in on it fighting
wasn't so expensive. But that's the
way it is. when you get a good thing
going. First thing you know some
body is stealing your stuff and a little
later on in come the mice with the
maggots, centipedes, tarantulas and
horned toads?and then the price
starts to shoot up like mercury in
July.
Twenty years ago Spain was trying
to shove Cuba around like an Atlantic
City rolling chair, and early one
morning somebody playfully sunk
the Maine. The L'nited States de
clared war on the Espanolas and we
had a real exclusive fiasco, without
anybody on the sidelines trving to
get their faces into the movies. The
whole affair didn't cost either side
over two dollars and a quarter and
when peace was made everybody took
their marbles and went home. No
treaties or leagues to sign and no
expensive entangling alliances. No
senators were calling each other bad
names and thinking worse ones, and
every one agreed that it was a very
successful war for all concerned.
That was in the palmy days when a
bird could pull a stunt without fear
of another guy coming along and
crabbing the party.
But when every nation on both faces
of the globe tries to get into the bat- I
tie, when there's only standing room I
for two. then the price of war is
bound to go up. It reduces itself to
a simple matter of supply and de
mand. If there had been less people
wanting to get into the late obse
quies the tickets would have been
cheap enough to the original con
tracting parties. But when the war
speculators discovered that the world
was war mad up went the ante, and
toward the last of the tournament
you couldn't get a berth even in the
mezzanine balcony for less than a
couple of billion berries.
That's why the war cost America
$30,000,000,000 fiat?simple as an
adding machine.
During the civil war you didn't see j
a flock of alien countries coming in :
and cluttering jjp the parade and
boosting the price of admission. The
outsiders just stood by calmly and let
the bantams go to it, and when the
referee awarded his decision they
gathered up a lot of war souvenirs
and junk and went home.
Same way in the Mexican war and
the revolutionery ? no stage-door
johnnies hanging around after the
show and none butting in during it
and boosting the prices of warfare.
Thirty billion looks like an awful
big drop in the bucket for one coun
try to separate itself from for only
nineteen months of leading and feint
ing, but at that the American people
who pa <1 for the big war got more
for their money than the American
people who paid for the Toledo war.
Tex Rickard says the gate receipts
were 1450,000. The fight went three
rounds which made it cost John
American about $130,000 per round or
$50,000 per punch. All of which
comes under the head of the high
cost of fighting.
If the league of nations and the
peace treaty are ratified, I*resident
Wilson promises to reduce the tall
cost of tearing at each others' throats
to a whisper, so that tossing rolling
pins and flat irons will be a luxury
which every American household can
I afford.
Right here in the dear old capital
I the price of war has become almost
prohibitive, and they're trying to raise
the bet 2 cents for encores. Time was
when you could get into six battles
on any Bix street cars you chose for
two bits. Now, if you want to fight
your way to work in the morning it
costs a nickel straight and 2 cents
additional if you ask for a change of
venue. The war lords have Just
asked the allied council at the District
building for 7 cents a battle with no
rebate for arm st ices.
Sherman shouted something!

MUSICAL MENTION
An Important recent occurrence In
church musical circles is the an
nouncement by Ingram Memorial
Congregational Church (institutional)
of the engagement of the National
Quartet of this city to furnish the
music for that church next season.
The contract, which also calls for the
services of the quartet's accompanist,
was signed this week and the quartet
will begin its choir work the second
or r "eptember.
This is probably the first time in
Ihe history of Washington churches
that an organized quartet, with an
established, reputation in secular
music, in concert and Chautauqua
lines, has been engaged as an organi
zation for church work The repu
tation established by the National
'Quartet for its concert programs dur
1 ing the past three years resulted in
three of the leading churches of the
city offering them contracts for ne*J
season. They selected Ingram Churcn
because of its institutional character
and the larger opportunities afforded
for presenting both secular ana
sacred compositions.
This engagement affects several
choirs and will bring about a number
of changes, inasmuch as the mem
bers of the quartet are all soloists in
different churches. Mrs. Maxwell has
been granted a leave of absence for a
year by the Mount Pleasant M.
Church South, and has provided a
substitute for that period; Miss
Chenoweth has resigned as contralto
soloist at St. Paul's Lutheran church.
Mr. Braithwaite resigned some weeks
ago as soloist and precentor at (iune>
Memorial Presbyterian Church, In an
ticipation of this engagement, and Mr.
Forker will give up his work as bass
soloist at Calvary Baptist Church.
Mr*. Parrtsh. who recently reMgned
her position at Luther Memorial
Church, will preside at the organ and
direct the activities of the large chorus
choir which will supplement the work
of the quartet.
It is the intention of Ingram Church
to make a special feature of its music
next year, and in addition to an attrac
tive program at each service, morning
and evening, one Sunday evening each
month will be given over to a special
musical service featuring the quartet
the chorus choir and added musical
attractions.
Mrs. Frederick L. Strang, formerly
Elsie Carleton Small of this city, has
been engaged as soprano soloist and
choir director of the t irst Methodist
Episcopal Church of Newton, New
Jersey. Mrs. Strang was for severa
years soloist at Incarnation Episcopal
Church and at the time of her mar
riage was soloist at Vermont Avenue
Christian Church. She is making her
home indefinitely in Newton.
Weldon Carter, head of the piano
department of the Washington Col
lege of Music, and Miss Marguerite
Copeland of New York city were
married in Grace Church Chapel. New
York, July 7. only a few intimate
friends of the bride and groom being
present.
Mrs. Carter is well known in musical
circles as a violinist. She is a gradu
ate of the Institute of Musical Art,
New York, and has appeared success
fully in frequent recitals.
A joint recital was given last year
In New York by Mr. and Mrs. Carter,
which gained for them both much fa
vorable criticism.
Mr. and Mrs. Carter will return to
Washington in September.
Capt. Charles T. Tittmann. soloist and
precenter of All Souls' Unitarian Church,
will sing two old favorites at the service

No One Quality Predominates
In the New Hudson Super-Six
Its Four Years* Development Results in a
Rounded Perfection That 60J000
Owners of Earlier Models Had Predicted
The names of certain automobiles call to
mind definite characteristics of those cars.
Four years ago, when the Super-Six was
introduced, Hudson meant a motor with 72
per cent greater power without added size
or weight.
In another year its emblem, the White
Triangle, marked the winning cars in most
of the leading speedway, road racing and
mountain climbing contests.
Then the name Hudson became a syn
onym for endurance. It meant longer and
harder automobile service.
The growing number of Hudsons later
gave it another distinction. -The beauty of
its various types was recognized every
where. It became a familiar object on every
highway.
Then Still Another Distinction
In each of these distinctions for which the
name Hudson became symbolic, no forfeit
ure was made of earlier advantages. Each
advantage became an additional merit.
The new Hudson Super-Six encompasses
all the wanted qualities. It is a powerful
car, but every item of its construction meas
ures up to the standard of its motor.
It is a fast car, but its endurance is equal
to any task imposed. It is a beautiful car,
and every detail in finish and convenience
matches its outward appearance.
For Every Type of User
The new Hudson Super-Six is the choice
of the conservative town driver as well as of
the hard-driving tourist.
Those who demand high speed know the
Super-Six will meet any situation. We have
entirely withdrawn from racing, but every
important racing contest includes a number
of Hudsons. They are entered bv profes
sional race drivers interested only in stake
winning. The Super-Six is their choice car
because they know its endurance.
The town motorist prefers the new Hud
son Super-Six because of its flexibility. Its
power range eliminates the necessity for
much gear shifting. Traffic congestion is
avoided because of the way the Super-Six
can take advantage of every opening. Note
how Hudsons, without the speed limits, t-1 ip
in ahead of less flexible cars.
And those, too, who choose cars because
of beauty and dignity, because they reflect
good taste as well as utility, prefer Hudsons.
A glance at any general list of Hudson
owners will indicate how it appeals to all
users.
It is not a car of a single advantage. It
meets all needs.
The way it satisfies 60,000 users, repre
senting every automobiie need, is a sugges
tion of its universal appeal.
