MEDICAL SERVICE BETTEIENTISAIM Lessons Gleaned From War . Compiled in Britain —All. Powers to Benefit. DEFECTS POINTED OUT Editors Deal Frankly With Short comings Developed in Amy. By the Associated Press. LONDON. July 11.—Lessons from sins of omission and otherwise, in the medical services during the war, have been compiled into an eleven-volume edition of the Official Medical History of the Great War, recently issued. They should furnish the basis for the reorganization of the medical staffs of the forces of the great powers on a level with modern science, say the editors of this voluminous work. The books deal frankly with the tactical and strategical errors of the medical service in the war, notably in areas typical of middle eastern conditions. No attempt has been made to gloss these errors. The lack of co-operation between the combat ant and medical staffs is frequently noted, and it is in this that the edi tors find the greatest lesson. Closer Liaison Needed. Although in some respects faulty administration was a factor in the breakdown of the medical services in the Dardanelles, Mesopotamia and East Africa, the chief lesson to be learned from the study of these cam paigns. say the editors, is the need of a close liaison between the medi cal administration and the general staff from the outset, and clear and definite preparations before the cam paign is begun to meet all possible contingencies. Too often in the last war the medical service was found to be totally Inadequate because the 'medical staffs had no clear idea of "What was to be expected of them, or the possible extent of the campaign Upon which they were engaged. The Dardanelles operations were an example, it is shown, of the necessity for establishing large general hospi tals near the scene of operations and for providing a sufficient number of steamers and small craft for the evacuation of sick and wounded when the fighting takes place on or near water. In Macedonia the dominant feature was warfare in mountainous country or in river valleys, the hotbeds of malaria. In this sector the percent age of hospital beds to the numbers of troops reached the largest propor tion, that of one in three. Malaria was rampant here and. while the medical service was handicapped by lack of scientific knowledge, it also failed to protect the troops by a lack of proper equipment on the spot. Unused to Modern Appliances. The medical administration in Mesopotamia during the early period of the campaign was dulled by many years of economy practicing in peace time in India. This explains why the ambulance wagons and cars, hospital steamers and other equipment pro vided for the services in France were not even asked for by the headquar ters of the Indian expeditionary force. They were unaccustomed to their use. The most deplorable inefficiency was in the actions for the relief of Kst-el-Amara. At that action the medical service found itself with only fourteen sections of field ambulances. Instead of the authorized thirty. When the operations toward Kut were started no strenuous efforts had been made to reinforce the medical units or to prepare a plan for the evacuation of the sick and wounded. The battles of Shaikh Saad. Wadi and Hanna still remain a nightmare to those who took part in them. The wounded lay out overnight, and many died from exposure. Those collected could not be properly housed or treated. They were evacuated to the base on any available boat and ar rangements at Basra for the disem barkation of the reinforcing divisions were defective. When the divisions arrived large convoys of sick and wounded were coming down the Tigris. The steamers met at Basra and confusion prevailed. Dfgcers and men wandered about in mud trying to find their way to new camps at Makina and Magil from vague di rections given them by other over worked officers. STATE INSURES MILITIA. New York Takes Peace-Time Pro tection for 21,000 Guardsmen. NEW YORK, July 11.—Peace-time Insurance for members of the New .York National Guard was assured ; when Maj. Gen. Charles W. Berry I signed an application for protection j totaling between $40,000,000 and $50,- 000,000 for the 21,000 men under his command.

THE EVENING STAR, WASHINGTON, D." C., FRIDAY, JULY 11, 1924 ICEMAN CONSIDERED AS EFFICIENCY EXPERT Housewife’s Requirement That He Arrange Perishables Delays Delivery Schedule. By the Associated Press. CHICAGO, July 11.—Your iceman, provided he has an average route and a distributing territory In the residential district, shoulders two tons of ice a day, carrying each piece a distance of fifty feet, according to a survey compiled by the National Association of Ice Industries. These 4,000 pounds of ice are divid ed among approximately eighty refrigerators, the survey shows, and the field of work covers an average distance of two miles. An ability to stand the physical strain, at a threat of impairing health, bothers the Iceman less than in keeping on schedule, the associa tion says, which is endeavoring to put ice routes on the same basis of punctuality as the transportation systems. “The Iceman’s greatest trouble is keeping on scheduled time, because housewives frequently think he also is an expert in arranging their perish ables to the best possible cooling re sults. Often he has to unpack and repack the ice chamber. This is the outstanding cause of delayed service. “Tlie delivery systems are being remodeled and Improved and some members have so nearly perfected their systems that schedules are al most as accurate as that of a pas senger train. That is our aim.” YOUTH DOOMED TO DIE. Kentuckian Convicted of Bank Robbery Murder. PARIS.

Crows Benefit Fanner. One crow is known to have eaten 85 May beetles. 72 wire worms, or 123 grasshoppers within an hour or two says Nature Magazine. Even the rankest of anti-crow partisians must admit a bird doing this has actual powers for great good. When broods of four young may be found that have eaten over 400 grasshoppers, and other broods of seven a total of more than 580 during a few hours, the beneficial influence of a crow family becomes evident. They Battle Pests. From April to August, inclusive, insects are over a third of the adult crow’s diet and include such notori ous pests as May beetles (the adult form of the white grub), wireworms, cutworms, and grasshoppers. Nest ling crows, says Nature Magazine, outdoing their parents in insect con sumption during the spring months, get nearly half ’of their sustenance from these insects.

MANILA, July 11. —Complete papers In the cases of fifty-four of the 110 members of the 57th Infantry and 12th Medical Regiment, Philippine Scouts, who have been charged with insubordination because of forma tion of a secret body to seek pay in creases and subsequent refusal of duty, have been received at depart ment headquarters here from Fort McKinley, the regiment’s station. The papers being examined by the legal and administrative branches of the department staff concerned in the summary dismissal of soldiers ex hibiting undesirable traits. Owing to the necessity of having a board of officers inquire into the merits of each case individually, none has reached the final stage. Officers at both Fort McKinley and army headquarters here report they have been approached by many indi dividual members of the scouts, not af filiated with either regiment named, who have protested their loyalty toward the United States as individuals and have given assurances of the loyalty of the units to which they belong. These men, the officers say, are very anxious to make it clear that they have not participated and could not be made to participate in any insub ordination. No further symptoms of unrest have been brought to light at either Fort McKinley or elsewhere in the department. j| Blue Book | “ Routing I Is Accurate Wien you start out on your gm trip with a Blue Book in. tie car. you are sure you are on —= the right road all tie time.
