ES BOTER PAY AND MOTHER PLAN Major General Burnett Points Out Losses Due to Barring of Outside Work DEMAND FOR PRIVATE WORK Report Asks That Increase Be Made in the General Corps of Marines. fn adJltioft to pointing out that the Marine Corps needs 7,200 additional men and sixty 6fflcers. MftJ. en Qeorge Barnett, commandant. In UJs annual report, urges higher pay for the Marine Band to make up for losses due to discontinuance or. out side support after protest was rrnulo by labor unions'. v "The Marine Band is practically ths President's band," General Barnett'a report says, "and is used for all of ficial functions b.oth at the White House and elsewhere, and therefore only men,of the highest standard of excellence can be recruited for tlis service. "The present organization of the band' was effected some time sine, and the pay and allowances were fixed at a time when the cost of liv ing was not nearly so high as It Is .now." and when the conditions were entirely different Added to Their Pay. "At the time when the present pay table was adopted the band was mu.'h in demand for private entertainments, and the members were allowed to ac cept liberal remuneration for the service, which materially added to thefr pay. This condition has entire ly changed, and the band Is now denied competition with local organi zations, due to protests made by tho labor union. The Question, therefore f n rnrc?AnlKAHrin nf the bn.nd. nil:!' especially a modification of the pay table, Is, In my opinion, highly essen tial, in order to maintain the bard at such a state of efficiency, as will not Impair its usefulness. This mat ter Is now receiving my attention, awl at tho proper time there will be sub mitted for your aonroval. and sub mission to Congress, a bill providing lor the reorganization of the banJ General Barnett did not ask that tho Marine Corps be recruited to Its fult. ad41tlonal needed strength of 7,200, as her was advised that Seer tary Daniels planned to atfk only 7,500 increase In personnel for the entire navy. He asked for 1,500 men, how ever, to keep the forco at one-fifth the enlisted strength of the navy, This recommendation was maJe by Secretary Daniels in submitting hlo naval program:.-.- - ......

Gen eral Barnett said, has caused inter ference with ship detachments by their withdrawal for shore duty. He Relieves that a mobile force of 3,500 should be maintained on the Atlantic coast and ,1,200 on the -Pacific coast The full strength of the corps it present Is 344 officers and 9,979 men.

This fact hss Just some to light by the statements of foreign buyers of hay, who also direct tho compression of the bales before shipment from this port, to make them as nearly bullet proof as possible. Three ordinary field bales are com pressed into one bale before being load ed on a vessel. This process gives tho bale a density that Is said to mako-It equal to steel plate In stopping, bullets.

Dec. 2fi, Indications are, according to statistics made pub lic by the foreign department of tto National City Bank,that the United States during the current year has become the leading export nation of the world, surpassing Grerit Britain, our nearest competitor, by something more than double the vajue of.hr exports during 1915. For eleven months, ending Decem ber 1, the total value of exports from the seventeen principal ports of tho United States was $3,145,000,00 against $1,705,000,000, the estimated aggregate value of Great Britain's ox ports in 1914. and $1,831,113,000 for the United States in the samo year. For 1913. more like a normal year. Great Britain's exports were $2,345,. 600.000, against $2,217,812,000 for tho United State.8. English Trade Drops.
