One man gave up work for the Govern ment to Join the army and found his army pay here larger than his Gov ernment pay in Washington. The man was James ' Waldo, who was "employed" by the Government at SI ' a year In connection with a study of mining conditions. Instead of a dollar a year he will receive as a private In the Twenty-third Engi neers $360 a year. It is clear, how ever, that he did not come here from Washington merely for the raise. He does not need the $1 or the J3C0 either, very much, as he has made a success of his career already as a mining expert. Waldo Is one of the many other men of large means who have Joined this and other mining regiments just because tbey wanted to put tneir ex pert knowledge at the disposal of the Government in the war. Many gave up large salaries and large fees as consulting experts. Waldo only re mained In Washington long enough to feel convinced that he could be more useful In the army than as a voluntary adviser. only hide skin trouble OlllsJLsktosweff Whether it is a serious affection like eczema, or just a pimply, rough and unattractive com plexion, you can usually rely on Rcsinol Oint ment and Rcsinol Soap to set it right, promptly, easily and at little cost Resinol Ointment stops itching instantly.

C01A0NUSE0F ALL TRACKS TO BE PART OF R. R. PLAN Common use of all tracks is to fol low the pooling of equipment of all facilities In the handling of the rail roads' war burden. It was learned officially today that Director General McAdoo soon wilt authorize a gigan tic rerouting scheme, providing for the conversion of parallel lines Into double-track systems. This move wll Include the building of scores of con nections, but the expense, when com pared to the vast good to be derived, will be neglible. officials believe. Lines Surveyed. Robert S. Lovett. director of the division of extensions and better ments of the railroad administration, hag Instituted a survey of all lines with a vlewtocombining"facillties further. He will meet McAdoo In California and that conference Is ex pected to result In orders for the building of the first links and sub sequent rerouting of certain Pacific coast trains. It was pointed out by officials that in many cases lines run parallel for distance as great as 450 miles. Un der competitive conditions, each road gained Its share of business. Since the last vestige of competition has ben wiped out by Federal operation, officials say, the lines' facilities should be utilized 100 per cent. Only by making them Into one double-track line can the fullest results be at tained, they declare. Cut to Minimum. While It Is known McAdoo expects ultimately to extend the plan to all sections of the country, it was be lieved in some quarters it might mean the cutting to the minimum of service on lines built for competition. The shortest route and the condition of the roads, grades, and requirements of the section only will decide the service retained, it was hinted.

BLAMES MARKET CO F "The Washington Market Company Is the principal source of the high cost of living in Washington.

This was the utterance of Chairman Ben Johnson, of the House District Committee today, in discussing some of the District measures which are now held ud In one- house or the other. Mr. Johnson said two bills which ought by ail means to be passed were the market bitl and the bill for a stricter system of weights and meas ures.
