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.,

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.

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.

While It is not possible for the
United States -Marine ' Corps to open
a recruiting office In Bridgeport, no
recruits . need hold back from en
listing because of expense. Under
the law Postmaster Greene f.s author
ized to receive applications for the
marine corps and to have them exam-
Ined by a reputable physician without
cost to the applicant. If he passes
this examination his full transporta-i
tion to New York will be forwarded

will be sent to the recruit depot at

or finally enlisted the government pays

The main qualifications are that he

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. ,

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.

Potatoes as Food.
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
