PLAN II WOTH TO GE T ARTILLERY RECRUITS NO VOLUNTEERS FOR NAVY Civilian Committee of 60 Beg Line of Defense Veterans In Speeches Ringing With The civilian committee of 10 to aid 'enlistment in the Connecticut Coast Artillery Corps, N. G;, and the Nation al Naval, Volunteers met in the pro bate court room, city hall, last night and decided upon a mammoth patriot ic mas3 meeting to be held soon in the State armory, Main street. Judge Alfred B. Beers, former commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, was elected chairman with Capt. Edward Mora, secretary and treasurer It is likely that in anticipation of the rally towards the flag, both the artillery and naval companies will be on parade and that recruiting sta tions for the National Guard will be placed in conspicuous places in the city with enrollment and medical of ficers in attendance to explain the re quirements of each branch of the ser vice. - Last night much was said about the patriotism displayed by the masses during the Revolution and the Civil War and considerable about the feel ing forsand again enlistment in the present 'generation. , Among the salient features of pres ent day conditions brought f ordibly before the meeting were these facts: the Wnk and file of citizens do not believe that actual emergency exists; many persons wish to know how their families are to be pared for fhile they are absent and whether or not the foreigner will replace him in the factories and the work he quits to be a patriot; there is not enough infor mation being disseminated about the respective ; branches of the national guard service; labor will 'rise to a man to defend the country i but will not stir until va crisis is reached; that the gov ernment will not send a volunteer regiment to the front until 500,000 national guardsmen have been re cruited, trained and In the field; and that the Coast Artillery companies and the National Naval Volunteers in this city need many more recruits and the recruits are not forthcoming. Officers of the ' various companies were first called upon to express their views. , , ; 1 '. Capt. Arthur C. Bennett of the Fourth Company, Conn. C. A., N. G., said' he had been ordered to recruit full strength in his mortar company, 150 men. He has but '74. , In his ef forts to procure enlistments he is told by. the average young, man: "When they want me I will be there." '' Capt. Louis J. Brague, of ,the 14th Company, CA. Cjwlth necessity for 109 men, has but 75 men. Lieu. Albert J. Merritt speaking for the Third Division, National Na val Volunteers, said that while the navy has always been a popular branch of the service the apathy at 1, this time is astounding. He has but 51 enlisted men and needs a full com plement" of 81 with two additional officers. In the aeronautic unit of the naval branch 1 9 more men are needed for the first company. The re quirements are technical, and though nearly every jitney man in the city has shown his patriotism in tpJs re spect they cannot be accepted because Of the rigid physical? and scientific re quirements. : 1 ; William P. Kirk, voicing the senti ment of the average workingman i at this time, after asking what pay the enlisted man would receive stated that the burden upon the married man who had a family was too great under ' the present rate of compensa tion and asked ' that a resolution be sent to the Connecticut legislature to increase by 1 state aid the compensa tion to patriotic married volunteers, later Asking the , factory owners to carry this burden and . volunteered to pay full salaries to any of his em ployes ,who- enlisted as long' as they remained ,away from their families at the front." ' Judge Beers, Frank Millfer and General .Henry A. Bishop made stir- 1 . 4 m . ring speecnes glowing with patriot Ism. - '. - . , j -' Lieut OLouislJ. O'Neil, of the 11th Company C. A. C, saidi "The Gov ernment has. spent over $60,000 in equipping the, Bridgeport armory into one of the finest of artillery training stations. There are but three com panies of Coast Artillery here when six are really needed in' the city. It re quires two years to train men in this branch of the service which is most exacting and necessary for the de fense of the state." His company mow has 52 men and 30 more are required even for peace complement. ..Alderman j Vincent S. Whitney sug gested a grand rally to which both kmen and mothers might attend Tha suggestion was later put ini the form of a motion by Frank D. Bell and carried. ; , 1 .bTanK Miller was surprised that the young men of Bridgeport did not respond to the call but believed that America is the greatest country in. the world and that . Sail of Europe couia not "lick it." ' tien, Henry A. Bishop said: "If this country is good enough to live in it Is good enough to protect, a duty every citizen inherits from the time he is born'x Major Frederic J. Adams, chief sur geon of the Connecticut National Guard, said that the sanitary corps, of which he had previously been head in Bridgeport, Was complete with the ex ception of one physician. That the ambulance company which Hartford had not been able , to enroll was pro gressing, but that physicians of Bridgeport showed so little patriotism they openly admitted they were mak ing $1,060 a month and the call to colors would find them on the money side rather than the fighting side. He needs more physicians and Bur geons, -,v Anthony Sf Ambrose, president of the National 'Slavonic society, declar ed he was surprised that so little pa triotism was seing shown by the American born citizen, 4 "The American born will have to lead the jfway for the foreign born," he said, "for the foreigner looks up to the American and Americans only look upon a, foreigner as a foreigner. Therefore, in the time Of crisis the foreigner kays, 'I'll give you my mus cle and you give me your pay.' To change this" present feeling the, Amer ican must clvsnge his manner and treat the alien as a Drover ir ne j wishes him to fight side by side for the United States., MUSS MEETING ins Work to Strengthen First of Civil War Stir Enthusiasm Patriotism. "For thirty years," he continued, "all nations have had their spies in America. Though warned (both the administrations of President Roosevelt and (President Ta-ft ignored the signal with the result that politics have been played iby foreign governments right under the nose of the American peo ple." Mr. Ambrose ibelieves that the rea son for this laxity is the fact that "administrations serve but a four year term and the patriotism of the indi vidual 13 In ; the pocket." Wi F Hobba expressed himself of the Ibelief "that a real dlanger actually confronts the nation today and indi viduals Should not hold aloof from en listment when the crushing force of a trained army would bear us down be fore an army couM be assemibled.'' John j. O'Neill, representing the1 la bor interests of the city, declared the majority of people tall to (believe that a real crisis is Impending. La'bor has been tajught by bitter experience to look for the dollar end is looking for it today (but when real emergency comes they will. forget the dollar antd rally to a man in defense of the country. La 'bor also, fears the foreign element will replace them at cheaper wajge and the moneyed interests must lay the cards on the. table and also show a similar patriotism with the worker. introcrucea as "Jieryoody's menia," Larry (Mil said that . his district the East Side does not believe the emer gency period .has (been reached tout Jwhen it Is shown to (be here the East Side will responha. . -." Two points were emphasized today by those who commented on last night's developments. Mr. Amibrose in his remarks, pointed out that foreign born persons are ready and willing to enlist, and are but waiting to follow the iAmerfcan-born. The latter,' he said, should set the example. ' Capt, Bennett declarekS that forma tion of volunteer., companies under private auspices is futile. He declared that law requires filling out the ranks of the National Guard 'before any new companies will ibe recognized.

The main qualifications are that he ,2 VWL:2??A pounds' when stripped, be eithex native-born or fully naturalized, and of sound physique. Candidates slightly underweight may be accepted if oth erwise desirable. , As the marines serve In the fleet, at the navy yards, as guards at gov ernment radio stations and on- for eign service, their, opportunities for active service in time of war cannot be surpassed. They are almost in variably tlie. first armed troops that are called into active service. It is worthy of note that for the last two years the record scores of the navy with the 5 -inch guns have been made by the marines of the New York and the Pennsylvania. These guns are the battleships' main reliance against submarine attack, ' With the rifle the marines in the last three national matches won twice and lost the third time by only six points to the army. Our battleships, cruisers and gun boats have marine detachments vary ing from-,15 to 100 men. The rela tions on board ship between the' blue jackets and marines are of the' best, for their duties aboard ship are'much alike and ever since the Spanish War they have fought side by side, a con dition that has encouraged mutua' respect. , Captain P.iE.

Words Which Have Strayed. Hardly any words in the English lan guage have strayed farther from their original meaning than the terms of for estry. Thus a forest was originalIya great tract of country, "which might in, elude woods, cultivated lands, pastures and even towns and villages, all the hunting rights over which were reserv- ed to the monarch. A chase differed from a forest mainly in the fact that ing. of trees. ! It meant the suWection of any tract of country to the forest laws--in other words it was the ,set ting aside of this tract as a forest. A forest might and commonly did include vast estates of landowners and large towns whose rights remained untouch ed except as to game. London Mail. The Outdoor Woman.

At high prices the potato is not a good food; it is not at any price one of the 'best. Civilized humanity existed without it for centuries, rising to its zenith in a potatoless old world. Habit and convenience in storage have led to overuse. The potato is three-ifourthe watef and not quite one-fifth starch, which is its chief food substance, an excellent one for outdoor workers in severe cli mates. It is less valuable for seden' tary workers Indoors. - : s Only one-five hundredth part of the potato is fat; 3 per cent nitrogen, 2 pet cent sugar. These more valuable sub stances are so slight that during the famine 'of 1847 Irish cotters formed the habit of cooking potatoes "with a bone in , te middle" that is, of under cooking them so that they might delay digestion and stave off hunger. There are substitutes, of which rice nearly approaohes the. potato in values and defects. The correct instinct of rice eaters has mended the., latter by the Invention of pilaf, in wlfleh rice is supplemented by chopped meats of Csavies.
