SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 20, 1918 Men will return from the front feel ing that after their great sacrifices they cannot he satisfied 'with, a country that is not substantially I letter than before they went. ' Dr. Addison. The "Dollar a Year Men" We are beginning to hear jeering remarks about the "dollar a year men." Reference is made to the experts in finance and men successful in other lines who at the beginning of the war laid aside their own affairs and offered their services p the government. These jeers come from politicians who resent any public service that is not paid for; -who believe that lie places filled by the "Cellar a year men" are places vhicli should be occupied by deserving partisans Hawing fat salaries. The occasion for these jeers has been furnished l.y complaints, that our war preparations are not moving forward as well as they should move. Eut for none of these, things has the blame Been traced to the "dollar a year men;" they have had nothing to do with any bungling or blundering that has been discovered. The break-down of our shipbuilding Dperations some months ago, the "clay ir other preparation, all these things, are followed back to the incompetence of regularly paid officials, to the in adequacy of a system which was in vogue long before v.he "dollar a year men" were called in. It is the "dollar a year men" who made successes of the liberty Loan and Red Cross drives, who are making a success of the Thrift campaign. Without them and without the co-operation which they se cured, the government would have made a miserable failure of these essential movements. We may shud der to think how these campaigns vrould have ended if they had been managed by men who had shown no other capacity for the work than their ability to get out the vote for the candidates of a dominant party and who would have regarded their jobs not as opportunities t patriotic service but as proper re wards for political activity. The U-Boat Toll The figures of last Wednesday night show a marked falling off in the destruction of British ship ping for the week ending, or rather the -week reported, January (i. The figures which are published every Wednesday represent the result of the week ending on the previous Sunday, so that the losses given in the dispatches of Wednesday night showing six ships of more than 1600 tons or over destroyed up to the night of January 6, exactly one-third the number sunk the previous reported week. The effects of the submarine warfare have been announced weekly for forty-five weeks and the aver age for the whole time has been about twenty-two ships a week, sixteen of them being of 1600 tons or more. The week with the lowest losses was that ending November 1 when only one vessel of 1600 tons or more and only five of the less than 1600 tons were sunk a total of six. The highest total was that of the week ending April -2 when fifty-five vessels were sunk, forty o the greater tonnage and fifteen of less than 1600 tons. The following week fifty-one vessels were sunk, thirty-eight of them being 1C0O tons or over. Kor only one week since the middle of September, have the losses come tip to the average just stated. That was the week ending October 21 when the sink ings were seventeen of the larger craft and eight of the smaller, a total of twenty-five. But for the weeks of November 2j and December 9 respectively the general average was nearly reached, the losses num bering twenty-one in each instance. For the weeks of November 18, December 2 and December 16 the total losses were seventeen in each case. From the foregoing it will be seen that the ruth less U-boat warfare inaugurated last February Is taking an ever-diminishing toll. For the six weeks, April 1-May 6 the sinkings amounted to the sickening total of 230 ships and this was enough to justify the proud boast of von Tlrpitz that; Great Britain would soon be starved or brought to her knees. But for the last ten weeks the total has been less than l."i0 ships, eighty fewer ships than were sunk dur ing the six week period above mentioned when the greatest destruction was wrought. And this explains the recent modification of claims by the German admiralty which, however, further explains that the eason there have not been more sinkings is because there were not so many ships left to sink. Still that claim is not borne out by the reports of sailings and arrivals at British ports and it is refuted in part by the reports of the greater number of unsuccessful attacks upon British vessels. While it is pitiful that the destruction still goes on at even a reduced rate, the balance has been so readjusted as to leave no doubt that the submarine campaign is being slowly overcame, and we have good reasons to believe that when America is able to make Its contribution to the world's shipping the futility of this destruction will become apparent even to the. Germans; that it will appear to them then that It has no more bearing on the outcome of the war than tha Zeppelin raids over England. ' Ireland and the War The apprehension with which Ireland is regarded by the British government is evidenced in the over whelming defeat of the proposition to apply conscrip tion to Ireland. While Ireland has done very well In enlisting and while Irish soldiers at the front have been among the bravest of the brave, It la known that there exists in Ireland a strong sentiment which in England is called disloyalty but which in Ireland is regarded only as hatred born of a thousJnd years of wrongs. It is, therefore, feared that the application of conscription to that country would at once produce a rebellion which has been on the verge for the last five years and to quell, which would require forces which are now badly needed against the GerrAans. There can, therefore, be no help expected from Ireland except such as may be voluntarily given. The Irish sentiment regarding the war is described by a lady who made a journey across that country. The train was filled with men who were going to a coursing match. The talk was almost exclusively about sporting matters. Only once was the conver sation turned upon the war and that was when a man threw down a paper he had been reading and remarKed with an -air of exultation that "our British friends" had been defeated at two points. In her journey over Ireland the lady said she found the people living in comfort, if not in luxury, iij contrast with the privations to which even the well-to-do classes in England are subject without complaint. The same food restrictions which have been placed upon the people of England have not been extended to Ireland for the same reason that conscription is not applied there. The need of man-power now has become so urgent that Premier Lloyd George has not hesitated to make known the country's desperate situation to the world. And unless it is speedily relieved by the United States, the time will probably come soon when Great Britain will" cast away its fear of an Irish rebellion and apply conscription, if for no other pur pose, to silence the growing murmuring at home. Evils, Psychological and Others . It is unfortunate now that sometime ago when there were rumors of a coal shortage, Dr. Garfield, the fuel administrator said that the shortage was largely psychological. It was only something feared and the fear of it might have the effect of making it substantial. The shortage now is admittedly, not psychological, not imaginary, any more than the hundreds of smokeless chimneys and the thousands of idle men are imaginary. The statement that any evil or impending evil is psychological is the explanation of of the optimist, calculated to remove fear, a cause of the evil, but it is one that should not be offered if there is real ground for believing that the evil exists or impends. It does not then admit of psychological treatment. We cannot now say that the diagnosis of Dr. Garfield was then wrong. So far as he or any one else could see, there woulfl not necessarily be a seriois coal shortage. There were only threatened strikes in the mines and a way to settle them was being found. There were indications that production would be heavier than usual. Perhaps Dr. Garfield's estimate of the much greater need of bunker coal fell short and it is possible that also his estimates of the needs of France and Italy should have been greater. But it might have been supposed by him that the increase in production would meet all these extraordinary de mands. But there was yet to intervene a condition that for a time would leave production no longer an im mediate factor. The only coal available would be that which was in the bunkers or on the market. That became the situation and it was not a psycho logical one. It could not be altered by mere thinking for it had not been produced by thinking. The moral of this is that in serious times it is not good to tell people that their troubles are psycho logical for ir it turns out that they, are real, they lose confidence in the cheerer-up. s. MARTO UNPREPARED BASE THREATENED Tommy Tonkins was keen on baseball and partic ularly ambitious to make his mark as a catcher. Any hint, however small, was welcomed if it helped on his advance in his department of the game. When he. began to have trouble with his hands, and some body suggested soaking them in salt water to harden the skin, he quickly followed the advice. Alas! a few days later Tommy had a misfortune. A long hit at the bottom of the garden sent the ball crashing through a neighbor's sitting-room window. It was the third Tommy had broken since the season began. Mrs. Tonkins nearly wept in anger w,hen Tommy broke the news. "Yer father'll skin yer when 'e comes 'ome to night," she said. Poor Tommy, trembling, went outside to reflect. His thoughts traveled to the strap hanging in the kitchen, and he eyed his hands ruefully. "Ah!" he muttered, with a sigh. "I made a big mistake. I ought to 'ave sat in that salt and water!"

Carter When the new Boston store throws its doors opn tut the pujjlic in the near future there will be a new mem ber of the executive staff of the big establishment. S. W. Marto, for ten years one of the best known business men of Arizona, and for the past four years superintendent and advertising manager of Korricks' last evening severed his connection with that house to assume the position of superintend ent and, advertising manager of the Boston store. Incidental with this comes another of the promotion of Manager E. C. Carter to the ne'wlv created position of merchandise man ager, which means that hereafter the man who has in such a large measure airected the destinies of the Boston Store for the past five years in every department, will hereafter devote him self exclusively in the selection and buying of goods for the-greater store. That I. .Diamond, proprietor of the Boston Store, should have been suc cessful in securing the services of Manager Marto, whose ability is well known in business circles throughout Arizona, has been productive of con gratulations extended to Mr. Diamond ever since it became known several days ago that Marto was to be added to the executive staff of the big store. That this will mean the bringing to the Diamond establishment the full benefit of years cf successful experi ence and accomplishment, is the con sensus of opinion among those aware of the change. It was ten years ago that S. W. Marto came to Arizona to assume the managership of Goldwater's. More than four years later, after having un questionably demonstrated his ability, he accepted a position with Steinfeld's at Tucson, which office he relinquished to return to Phoenix as superintendent ana advertising manager of Komcks' when that concern moved into its present modern home. Hardly had he become attached to the staff of Korrickh' in an executive position, before he undertook and car ried to a successful conclusion the or ganization of the Korricks' Benevolent society, the membership of which was composed exclusively of employes of tne big establishment. In more wavs than one this organization served to bring about closer co-operation and loyalty among the scores of employes, Dotn men ana women ana to create a spirit of mutual interest in the welfare of fellow employes. Today the society remains a monument to the foresight of Superintendent Marto. In his position of superintendent and advertising managsr, Mr. Marto has had general supervision of the display- S. W. Marto ing of all goods, of the advertising and of the general merchandising system: Various features which have won and held patrons for the big store, have ; been due largely to the initiative and ingenuity of Mr. Marto. His bi-monthly talks to employes, in which he set forth ideas on salesmanship, courtesy and service, resulted in the attainment of phenomenal efficiency. While it will be three of four weeks before the Boston Store will be estab lished in its new home, Mr. Marto goes to the concern at this time in or der to have general supervision of the Installation of the great and varied stock of merchandise which is already beginning to arrive. It gives him the opportunity he needs to thoroughly or ganize the torce he will rec.uire for tne handling of the business of the new and greater Boston Store. Mr. Marto has not confined his ac tivities exclusively to the managership of Korricks' during the years he has been with that concern, lie has found time to indulge in his one pastime, that of painting, for he is no mean artist with the brush. Some of his paintings, particularly those dealing with Arizona subjects have won recog nition at the hamls of well know critics. Two of his paintings still hang in the Goldwater rest room. He has lectured before such organ izations as the Neighborhood club, the Phoenix Advertising club, the Mesa Commercial club, the Phoenix Business Girls' club and others. His subjects have had to do with business and busi ness methods. Manager Carter of the Boston Store assumes the position of merchandise manager. He has been with the store for five years coming here from a large coast concern. He has brought about a wonderful depree of efficiency both in methods and in employes. He has seen the store outgrow its quar ters twice, as the result of work to wards which he has contributed so largely his loyalty and business ideas. Asked yesterday) for an outline of any new features of the new Boston Store, Mr. Carter said there would be so many it would be impossible to enu merate them. Ho said, however, that he believed the most popular would be the establishment of an "Economy Basement Salesroom." He said this department would carry a larger stock than many stores and that it would be true to its name. He expressed him self as confident that the addition of Mr. Marto to the executive staff would result in the creation of an opportunity for team-play as between himself and Mr. Marto that would result in direct benefit to the new Boston Store.

War conditions have increased the need of a day nursery in Phoenix, de clared Miss C. M. Gilchrist, superin tendent of the Associated Charities in an address before the civics education department of Gift Woman's club Mon day afternoon. Miss Gilchrist pointed out the fact that many more women were compelled to seek employment since the heads of families had been called to the colors and urged that the club women get behind the movement for a nursery that these women might know that their children were being well cared for while they were at work. The speaker called attention to the fact that the need of such an institution had been felt here before and its outgrowth was the Detention Home. She stated that again the need had arisen and in a more pronounced form and that the only way definite organization could be effected was by support and co operation. Miss Gilchrist spoke in de ,tail of the work carried on by a day nursery and what it meant to a com munity. It was announced at this meeting that $17 had been the proceeds from a sale of war cake by Mrs. A. G. Utley and that the sum had been used for yarn for knitting 24' pairs of socks for the sailors on the battleship Arizona. , Mrs. H. A. Guild was re-elected re gent of Maricopa chapter.
