JUNEAU, ALAsiX;SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1914. PRICE TEN, CENTS. ARMY IS MASTER Of NAVY FRANKLIN FIELD. Philadelphia, Nov. 2Sf-dn the annual football game this afternoon the West Point cadets beat the Annapolis middles by the scoro of 20 to 0. The score was represented by three touchdowns and one safety. It was a one-sided match, the army showing superior power both on oTocse and defense. throughout the game. The forward passing of both teams was. as a rule, poor. The Navy was weak on de fense and rarely hold the Army when It tried to penetrate the sailors' lino or run the ends. The Army's victory makes the rec ord of the.two teams a tie, as each has won nine games, with one game a tie, since the "big game" was introduced a score of years ago. More than 33.000 tickets wero sold and the crowd that traveled to Frank lin Field was the largest that ever saw an Army-Navy game in Philadel phia. The usual spectacular demonstration followed the game, with enthusiastic gray-clad army cadets the central fig ures. They planted tho Black and Gold, their colors. In the center of the field, then formed a circle that was as wide as the breadth of the field. A bugle call sounded by a half-dozen army buglers started the cadets on a wild rnsh to their colors, the circle closing in around their standard. With tho color bearers at the head, a procession was formed for a parade around the field, while the sad-faced middies looked on. Other football scores wore: Wash. & Jeff. 20. Rutgers 0.

NUMERICAL STRENGTH Of ARMIES COMPARED PARIS, Nov. 1.?(by mall to escape censor)?The French army consists not of 3,000,000 men, but double that number. Of these 0,000,000, half of them have been under fire; 3,000, 000, have not loft their garrisons. Few In France realized that Gen. Joffre holds this tremendous army In re serve. Every man of this 3,000,000 18 under 30, and fully trained and ade quately equipped for battle, ready to march at a moment'B notice. Oppos ed to tho French, the 3,000,000 that have been under fire, are not 1,500, 000 Germans, but 2,500,000?not 30 army corps, but 56. With 500,000 British troops and in tho neighborhood of 100,000 Belgians, tho-allies have on the western from 3,600,000 men, against 2,500,000 Ger mans. Owing to Gen. Joffre's careful nursing of the troops, the forces ac tually on tho firing line are roughly equal. Of the French 3,000,000, half are doing the fighting; the other half relievo them in tho trenches and fill the gaps caused by tho casualties. The forces nrc stretched over a battlcfront which now reaches 375 mllos. About 1,000,000 French troops lio between the Argonno and AJsace. Of this number tho array operating in the Verdun district totals 400,000. In Al saco, there are 250,000. Tho remainder are in tho lower Vosgos passes and at various points along tho Mouse. The long lino from Rheims to Arras by way of Soissons and Royo absorbs most of tho balance of 2,000,000, and tho full 3,000,000 are accounted for when it stated that tho French troops are also co-opcrating with tho Brit ish around LaBasso, Armontieros, and Ypres. The l>,uuu,uuu airongm 01 mo r TOHCD ? army is arrived at as follows: The active army includes three classes un der the flag, of 1,500,000. With these go the reserve in the active army, that is, men of the four preceding classes, or 2,000,000. This gives 3,000,000, all under 28. In addition arc the first class of territorials (under 30) 500, 000; and the remaining 2,000,000 are made up of 1914 and 1915 classes al ready under the colors (about 1,000, 000) colonial troops, Algorians, Mor occans, Senegalese, foreign volunteer corps (over 400,000) and tho Foreign Legion. These 6,000,000 could bo expanded to 8,000,000 by a general call to arms, as was resorted to for tho revolution ary wars in 1793. The additional 2, 500,000 would bo made up of territor ials, between 30 and 45. Tho question still remains: Why did Gen. Joffre, with his tremendous resources in men nllow the Germons to sweep across j Belgium nnd down to tho gate's of ParlB? Briefly stated,?the answer is that upon tho outbreak of the war tho French concentrated mainly on the East, leaving tho northern forts of Maubcugc, Lille, Loon, LdForo and Khoim:; inefficiently manned. When the Belgian array delayed the German army at Liege, Gen. Joffre took ad vantage of this respite and moved an army to tho valley of the Mouse and tho Belgian frontier. lie struck, but under unfavorable conditions.
