Gangway for the Iron Duke! The British war tank is pro
gressing through a ruined French village near the western battle
front, .while Tommies watch its progress. This official British pho
tograph was taken of the Iron Duke as he was crawling into action.
This village is one of. .the rest centers for the Tommies who have
been relieved from the front trenches. The tank has ten or fifteen
more miles to travel before it will be on the firing line. All the
climbing "stunts" achieved by the tanks are not dons' on the field
of battle. As is apparent from this photograph, the tank has some
pretty rough spots to cross behind the trenches.

MACK. JACK
William G. STcAdoo three months
aco today formally took possession
and assumed control of most of the
railroad property of the- United
States. In the short space of ninety
days as Director General of Railroads
Mr. McAdoo has revolutionized rail
roading; has swept aside "gentle
men's agreements" of long standing;,
cutting off abuses of power and has
gone further In general reorganiza
tion methods than any railroad man
thought possible. "
It took Mr. McAdoo fifteen minutes
to put Into effect the universal way
bill which simplifies shipping from
one part of the country with a mlin
mum risk to the business man who Is
to receive it at the other end. This
reform had been under agitation for
more than twenty-five ysars. Through
the Introduction of this universal
way-bill hundreds, of thousands of
dollars are saved yearly, it la claimed.
First Order.
TlTb new director's first order placed
ihVrallroads of the country on a basis
so that they shall be "operated as a
national system of transportation."
Today he announced that, planning
with Edward N. Hurley, chairman of
the Shipping Board, the railroad sys
tem now will be linked with the ship
ping program to place all of the
PUGILISTIC NURSES
ATHLETIC HELLO
E
LAMAD
CAMP MEADH, Md.. March 20.
Nurses at the base hospital are tak
ing lessons In boxings They have not
put on the gloves yet, and thus all the
company and regimental champions
may hold their titles unchallenged for
a while longer.
The nurses, who are very much In
terestcd in every line of the fighting
game as well as the ministering to
sick and wounded fighters, have
called In no less an expert In boxing
than Capt. John Patrick O'Donovan,
of the Canadian army, referee of
many bouts, and bayonet and boxing
Instructor of the commission on train
ing camp activities, to give tliem lee
tures and demonstrate his course.
This Is only the first of a series of
nonmedical lectures they .will have.
The nurses have been called out to
limber up, and are now going Uirough
a modified form of army physical
training. They are learning how to
punch, dodge, and Jab, but for the
present are not willing to enter Into
any bouts. Later they will learn
about military courtesy, marching.
and something about the methods of
fighting.
New nurses and tne old ones not
old In age, of course greatly enjoy
the training. '
Telephone girls, who are almost as
numerous as the nurses, are limber
ing up, too. They spend part of their
time away from the switchboards at
baseball. Later they hope to have a
tennis court. As for baseball, they
are learning the game by intuition.
They have no umpire and no rules.
They use a rubber ball. No scores
are announced.
transportation systems here on am In
ternational basis.
The Individual railroads are now
engaged in putting the finishing
touches to the biggest Inventory ever
taken in the history of this country.
When the stock-taking Is completed
within the next few weeks Uncle Sam
will know Just what was pldced into
Mr. McAdoo's bands on the last day of
December, 1017, by . the railroads of
the country.
Take Inventory.
"Each and every carrier subject to
Federal 'control shall, prior to May
1, 198, commence taking an Inven
tory of its material and supplies by
actual count, measurement, weight,
etc.," was the formal order Issued by
the Director General of Railroads.
Today the railroads are grouped
under three headings Eastern rail
roads. Southern railroads. Western
railroads and are In charge of three
regional directors: A. II. Smith, presi
dent of the New York Central, heads
the Eastern group; C II. Markham,
president of the Illinois Central, the
Southern; It. H. Alshton, president of
the Chicago and Northwestern, the
Western railroads. Orders Issued
by the regional directors are by the
authority of tho Director General.
Dlggest Task.
One of the biggest, probably the
biggest, task that confronted the Di
rector General since he assumed con
trol has been the question of adjust
ing the pending labor disputes. By
the creation of the railroad wage
commission, now ending Its labors, he
temporarily settled all disputes. The
report of this body, which Is headed
by Franklin IC Lane, Secretary of the
Interior, will Involve the largest In
crease In wages ever recommended in
the history of labor.
The strongest blow at the corrupt
ing Influence In railroad finance was
struck. It is believed by friends of
Mr. McAdoo, when be Issuod order
No. 0, that said "carriers' ope
rating revenues shall not be expended
for the payment of anyone employed
In anyway to affect legislation; for
attorneys not actually doing neces
sary legal work: for persons or agen
cies constituting associations unless
approved by the Director General; for
any political purpose or to directly
or Indirectly Influence the election
of any person or an election affect
ing any public measure." i
IN21LASTYEAR
IS SET FOR JUNE 5
American history probably wHl re
cord June 5 as "Service Day" upon
which the men of this country re
sponded to the call of the selective
draft. '
The provost marshal general la
planning to bold the second draft
registration for men who have be
come twenty-one since last year on
June 5, first anniversary of the first
registration. As long aa the war
lasts a similar registration will be
held on that date. It Is believed that
COO.000 Class 1 physically fit men will
be added to America's defense col
umns annually by this program.
Congress to Act,
Congress is expected to complete
the necessary legislation for the regis
tration well before June B.
With a five-day mobilization of
05,000 drafted men starting today.
America will round out the first year
of the war next week with the record
of having assembled over 700,000 men
through the selective service system.
This mobilization has largely been
accomplished In six months, as the
first of the drafted men did not start
moving to camp until late in Septem
ber.
lien In Xlraer-re.
Besides, a great reservoir of un
called men numbering more than
2,250,000 physically Class 1 fighters
alone Is ready to Jump Into the great
war at the signing of an order.
The coming year will see many
calls for specialists. Deputy Provost
Marshal General Johnson estimates
that 340.000 will be Inducted Into the
army for war Industrial or agricul
tural pursuits.
Beginning April 6. 4.G09 men are to
start to school, and many others will
find campuses their training camps.

counsel If the- papers wereAed earlier!
' '
Repeated challenges by former
Senator Joseph W. Bailey, counsel for
Frank. J. CodsoL charged with taking
16.000.000 In graft in connection with
contracts for furnishing automobiles
to the French government, were ig
nored by District Attorney Laskey,
representing the Government, at the
hearing before United States Commis
sioner Isaac It. Hltt yesterday after
noon. Bailey offered to withdraw the mo
tions for dismissal of the complaint
ss filed by him at a previous hearing.
If the Government would agree to
proceed on the complaint upon which
Godsol had been arrested and com
mitted. He also offered to waive all
technical objections If the Govern
ment would produco the papers from
France which are believed to consti
tute the formal Indictment of Godsol.
These papers, it is openly charged by
Godsol, have been found insufficient
to warrant his extradition, and he Is
being held In Jail while another set
of papers are being brocured from
France.
Stakes Reputation.
Bailey made the assertion yesterday
that he would stake his reputation as
a lawyer upon It that Godsol would
never be tried upon the charges on
wmcu no was arrested. ,
The outcome of yesterday's hearing.
which was to be only on the motions
for the dismissal of the complaint
against Godsol, was that Commis
sioner Hltt postponed further action
on the matter until all the papers In
the case meanlnr those from France'
were before the court. The date of
'April 10 vuft sot. with -the understand
ing that if the papers are filed earner,
the case will be heard at an earlier
dated.
The hearing yesterday was largely de
voted to Senator Bailey's protests
against the unfairness of holding his
client In Jail, pending the filing of the
papers from France. i
"We know such papers have arrived
here, and are in the hands of the French
representatives," he explained. "I do
not complain against the attorneys for
the United States, but I do complain
against .the French government .for hold

Mr. Godsol in Jail, after saying that the
papers on information of which be was
arrested had already been mailed."
"Godsol was not arrested on those
papers," he went on. "They are merely
the evidence to support the affidavit oa
which he was taken into custody. If
those papers, as they have arrived here,
are not sufficient to sustain the charges
against him, .Godsol should be liberate-."
District Attorney Laskey proposed that
the case shou'd be postponed until all
the papers were here. He explained
that although the papers might be In
this country, still they had not yet been
filed with the United States, and that
therefore he could do nothing.
