Baltimore Markets
Special Dispatch to The Star.
BALTIMORE. Md. December 21.
Due to the cold weather prevailing to
day, as well as to the lower prices, de
mand for both live and dressed poultry
has been greatly stimulated, and, while
values are slightly higher, the demand
is expected to continue good right up
to Christmas. Shippers should be care
ful. however, not to ship anything to
arrive later than Tuesday morning, as
all markets will be closed Christmas,
and with no outlet all perishable goods
are likely to be a total loss. Demand
is expected to continue good for New
Year, and unless there is a change
In the weather liberal shipments are
advisable, beginning Wednesday and
continuing up to the 28th for live and
the 30th for dressed poultry.
Shippers should be careful, however,
that ail animal heat Is cut of the body
before shipping, and only choice fat
turkeys eight pounds and over should
be shipped. Live turkeys eight pounds
and over show an advance of 4 and 5
cents a pound at 32 and 33 cents, but
crooked breasts, as well as old toms, not
so desirable, at 23 to 25. Colored Spring
chickens four pounds and over in good
demand at 24 and 25. but smaller will
not bring over 20 to 22, while Leghorns
sell mostly 10 and 20. as to size.
Old hens in only llmltea demand and
market is easy and lower at 18 to 24 for
stock weighing 3V 2 pounds and over,
but Leghorns will not bring over 18
to 20, while all poor, thin fowl Is neg
lected at 17 and 18. Market for ducks
and geese steady, under a fair demand,
for large fat stock, at 20 to 24 for the
former and 20 to 25 for the latter, but
stock weighing less than four pounds
will not bring over 16 to 18. Guinea
fowl and pigeons in moderate receipt,
but ample for the demand, and the
market is easy at 40 to 50 each for
the former and 25 a pair for both young
and old of the latter.
Dressed Poultry.

the advance In price market holds firm,
with all desirable stock meeting with
prompt sale at full values. Careful
grading Is necessary, however, to bring
top values, as some arrivals are mixed

stock will not bring top prices. The
market closed today at 56 to 58 cents
a dozen for hennery white firsts; 54 for
firsts and 45 to 48 for pullets, while

D. C. Naval Reserve
Members of the Ist Battalion, United
I States Naval Reserves of the District of
• Columbia, will hear on January 27. next,
the lecture of Comdr. Lucius C. Dunn.
United States Navy, on "The United
States Navy and the Monroe Doctrine.”
II covering the service for a period of 106
| years. This lecture Is said to be one of
the mast Interesting ever delivered on
I the Navy, and it is said treats the sub
ject of naval power exhaustively. It Is
tp be Illustrated by stereoptlcon slides.
Lieut. Comdr. Finney B*scorn Smith,
commanding the battalion, said that
l.« considered the organization very for
tunate in being able to obtain the con
sent of Comdr. Dunn .0 deliver the
lecture to the battalion. However, the
, Regular officer was represented as being
deeply Interested in the Reserve and its
development.
For the purpose of encouraging men
to take considerable Interest in splicing
lines and tying knots, a prize has been
offered for the seaman who does this
' work the best. The time for the awafd
or other conditions has not been made
public, but it is pointed out that knot
ting and splicing of lines was one of
the most important subjects in the early
training of a seaman. Considerable
time is allotted In the drill schedule for
this training, and the men are care
fully instructed by the boatswain and
his mates.
The local chapter of the United States
Naval Reserve Officers’ Association at
a meeting held at the Reserve armory
last Monday night elected Comdr. Smith
a delegate to the national convention of
the organization to be held here shortly
after the first of the year. Lieut. Cole
man was named as an alternate.
There was considerable discussion of
matters to be brought up by the local
delegates at the convention, one of the
most important of which, from the Re
serve standpoint, is the matter of
changing the present method of target
practice. The Regular service now has
one method, while the Reserve Is held
to another, lt was pointed out. It Is
now the desire of certain of the Re
serve officers to have the reservists fire
under the same conditions as required
of the Regular establishment for the
purpose of better comparing them.
The Reserve has been trained under
the present method for a number of
years now, lt was pointed out; as a
matter of fact, since the reorganization
subsequent to the conclusion of the
World War hostilities. It was asserted
that under this preliminary work the
reservists have reached a high state of
proficiency which should warrant the
Regular Navy authorities in changing
the Reserve target practice system.
Officers say that If the reserves are
called to the colors in case of emer

establishment, and therefore they

Bridges, the ad
jutant general of
the Army, with
respect to the
placing of Air
Corps Reserve offi
cers on extended
active duty with a
tactical unit of
that corps. This
extended active
training is carried
out for the dual
purpose of carry
ing out the pro
visions of the
Army Air Corps’
five-year program
and to further
train a selected
number of these
officers.
Due to incompete data It is possible
that In rare instances Reserve officers
whose flying ability has deteriorated to
such an extent that it is not possible
to revivify it with a short refresher
flying course will be placed on such
active duty. No Reserve officer will be
assigned to this duty unless it is shown
that he has had considerable recent
flying experience and it is believed that
all officers thus assigned should be able
to fly service type equipment with a
minimum of 10 hours transition fly
ing. The fact that a Reserve officer
has been granted a tour of active duty
does not necessarily mean that such
officer must be retained for the full
period of such duty, if, after a short
refresher course in flying, it is found
that he is not susceptible to becoming
fully capable of performing all types
of flying. In view of the limited fly
ing equipment available with tactical
organizations of the Air Corps all Re
serve officers who do not qualify after
the amount of transition flying will be
reported, through the corps area com
mander, with recommendation as to
whether or not they should be relieved
from active duty.
District of Columbia Field Artillery
Reserve officers will assemble at the
Fort Myer riding hall today at 9
o'clock under the supervision of Maj.
John M. McDowell.
Local Reserve officers of the judge
advocate general’s department will meet
at Reserve headquarters in the Ox
ford Hotel Building tomorrow evening.
This conference, which will be the
last one held until January 3, will be
conducted by Capt. F. P. Shaw.
Plans for the division training of the
80th Division, of which Washington
Reserve units are a part, call for tactical
exercises of the division, the best avail
able site for which is Fort George G.
Meade, Md. This will apply to In
fantry regiments and field officers of
Artillery and Engineers. It is believed
that the period August 3 to 16 will be
the most suitable for the exercises at
Fort Meade. To carry out the exercises
steps will be Instituted to provide for a
set of tactical exercises to suit the
topography of the Fort Meade section.
In general, these will be formulated
in two sets of exercises, one for the j
more advanced officers and the other j
for subalterns and those who have not j
had tactical experience fitting them
to solve higher problems. Problems
will be set up that will meet the re
quirements of both such classes of
officers.
As the Engineer and Artillery regi
ments were ordered to active duty in
1929, they will not be so ordered for
duty as units in 1930, but individual
officers who may apply for active duty
at Forts Humphreys and Hoyle will be
ordered there to the extent they can
be accommodated, the Engineer officers
during the months of July and August,
and the Artillery officers at some period
in August. In case officers should be
assigned to the 315th Field Artillery
they can be sent to Tobyhanna, Pa., at
some period for duty with the 16th
Field Artillery Brigade and with a
National Guard 155th regiment. The
matter of training division train officers
is not yet settled. Medical officers can
b 3 accommodated at Carlisle Barracks
during the period of July 6 to 19, 1930.
It is anticipated that offlqers of the
Ammunition Train desiring active duty
will be sent to the Ist Ammunition
Train at Fort Hoyle, Md., at some
period during July or August. The pro
gram for the tactical exercises will be
arranged as promptly as possible and
put in the hands of the Instructors and
Reserve officers of 80th Division units
for study during the inactive period, so
that by the time the inactive instruc
tional period is over next June, all
Reserve officers of the various arms and
services will be thoroughly familiar with
the program for the tactical exercises.
Washington Reserve headquarters an-
I nounced last week the following changes
*in the assignments of local Reserve
officers: The following have been placed
on the emergency officers’ j-etirqjl llst^
training, so that if a call should come'
they -uld be fully prepared.
The change suggested, it was said. |
involved the towing of targets to the j
range by tugs, and this has been the)
problem the Regular establishments has
had to deal with. The Reserves now!
furnish their own targets, small affairs *
which do not give a real determination!
of the effectiveness of the fire. In the
case of the large targets, it was said,
the gunners have to hit the target in
order to score, while in the Reserve
practice any shot within a certain dis
tance of the target counts. Those fa
miliar with Reserve training point out
further that the Reservists would get
considerably more out of the practice
if they had a target in which they could
see the result of their firing, rather
than getting it from mathematical cal
culation.
The local battalion furnished six gun
crews for target practice during the an
nual cruises last year, and it was said
that four of them obtained a perfect
score, while the other two were very
close. This, it was pointed out, clearly
indicates that the citizen sailors are
ready for promotion to the Regular es
tablishment's methods.
Another matter, considered very im
portant to the enlisted personnel from
a standpoint of morale, is the matter
of wearing the red "hash marks." These
are red diagonal stripes across the
sleeves of enlisted men which show, for
the Regular establishment, just how
many enlistments the man wearing
them has served. It was said that those
in the Regular establishment oppose
the wearing of these marks by the Re
servists.
However, it was pointed out at the
Navy Department, the uniforms of
the Reservists, in other respects, must
conform strictly to the naval require
ments, and there is no valid reason
why the "hash mark” should not be in
cluded. It was pointed out that a naval
reservist is Just as proud of his long
service and is as anxious to show it as
the man in the Regular establishment.
This will be brought to the attention of
the annual convention by Comdr. Smith
and an effort made to have passed a
resolution asking the Navy Department
to permit the wearing of these red
stripes.
Chief Gunner’s Mate White was pre
sented with his appointment in that
rating last week. He was, however,
ordered transferred from the 3d to the
2d Fleet Division, while First-class
Gunner’s Mate Wynne was sent from
the 2d to the 3d Fleet Division. This
change was made necessary, although
it was not desirable, according to Comdr. ■
Smith, because of the limitation of pay
grades In the fleet division. The pro
motion of White, it was said, made an
extra number in the pay'grades of chief
petty officers in the 3d Division, and in
order to retain him it was necessary to
make the transfer.
