FRANCE 10 CREATE "LIGHTNING" ARMY Seasoned Shock Troops to Be Ready to Fill Fron tier Gaps. PARIS (/P).—A speedier and a bigger professional army will be France's contribution next year to the military forces of Europe. A body of shock troops, highly trained and lightning fast with com pletely motorized equipment, is en visaged by the general staff. Able to move at a moment's notice, it would be used to plug up the few remaining holes in France's frontier defenses until her reserve army could be made ready for battle. In order to test the capabilities of reserves to do such work, the general staff called out a complete division of conscripts for the first time in France's peace-time history. The division, 9.000 strong, was pitted against seasoned regulars in a series' of maneuvers along the Ger man border. The conscripts were commanded entirely by reserve offi cers and con-coms, as would be the case in war. Unprepared for Rigors. Two weeks of exhausting maneuvers convinced the general staff that, how ever excellent the reserves' morale, they were physically and mentally unprepared to cope with veteran pro fessional troops. Stressing the fact that it is often the first battle that decides the out come of a war, military observers de cided reserves are incapable of taking the offensive without a month or more of training. "They can kill but they can't con quer," was the remark made by one observer. Approaches Legal Limit. Next year France will have 174,000 professional soldiers and 2Î5.000 con scripts on the War Department's rolls. This year there were 162.000 profes sionals and 263.000 conscripts. In addition, there must be counted a number of colonial troops paid and recruited by the colonies themselves and nearly 50,000 members of the guard mobile, a sort of federal police force under the control of the min istry of interior. France's total armed forces will approach the legal limit of 603,000. The plan for the shock troops calls for 78,000 men, divided into six armored-car brigades manned by 21.000 men, six motorized infantry brigades with 36,000 men and six mo torized artillery brigades with an other 21,000 men. CITY BEGINS DRIVE FOR MOSQUITO FUND Officials Ask 1936 Budget Include Money for Eradication Work.

Dr. Boland is president of the Southern Surgical Association and professor of clinical surgery at the Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Boland's account of nature's deceptive work shows that, though the symptoms may point to the appendix, j in many cases a study of the case ! will acquit that much-discussed organ One case cited by Dr. Boland was that of a colored truck driver bitten by a black widow spider. One day the driver knocked a spider off his shirt. He didn't think the spider had bitten him. but it had. Almost immediately he began to have severe pains In the abdomen. Signs pointed to appendicitis. Dr. Boland stated. No operation was performed pending further study of the case— and the doctors finally found out about the spider. The man was treated for the spider bite and in * short time was cured. Poet Riley's Polly, Last Surviving Pet, Dies at Age of 76 By the Associated Press.
