"In the .creation of the machinery
of war. you have made a new record
which we must all study.

"DOLLAR-A-YEAR"
IN JOINS ARMY;
GETS $359 RAISE
CAMP MEADE, Md July 18. 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.

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.

Limbufger Cheese Men
Meet In Capital To
Give Tips to Hoover
Representatives of the fo'relgn
type cheese trade, principally
dealers in Swiss, brick, and lim
burger, are meeting in Washing
ton this week with members of
the United States Food Adminis
tration to discuss conditions in
this industry and draft necessary
regulations.
The Industry is largely confined
to Wisconsin. New York. Penn
sylvania and Ohio. Wisconsin,
the largest producer, has an an
nual output of about 63.000.000
pounds. The cutting off of Im
ports has greatly stimulated the
markets for foreign styles of do
mestic manufacture, particularly
Swiss and Italian.
The Information and advice
from the trade brought out at
this conference' will be used by
the Food Administration in for
mulating such rules and regula
tions aa may be found necessary
to meet present unusual conditions.
BLAMES MARKET CO
F
"The Washington Market Company
Is the principal source of the high
cost of living in Washington. Why
doesn't the Senate go ahead and pass
the bill the House has already passed
to take over the market company's
nrnnertv?
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.
"The landlords In and out of the
Senate are not only blocking the antl
profiteering bill, but they are delay
ing the market bill ana tne weignis
and measures bill. Both are im
portant. The high cost of living here la
chiefly due to the lack of a -proper
market system. The Washington Mar
ket Company Is the principal source
of the trouble. Big storage and pack
ing companies have space In the mar
ket and they dictate what' this little
fellow and that one shall sell and not
sell. And the little fellows have to
do as .they are told. Otherwise, they
will be frozen out of business." 4,
PEOPLE PROTEST
T
Hundreds of protests from all over
the country are being received by
members of Congress daily against
the recent statement of .Council of
National Defense officials that the
nation must give up the presentation
of gifts on Christmas.
Merchants, protesting the proposed
action, say that nonwar Industries
must be allowed to survive, or the
country will be In a chaotic condi
tion In the days immediately follow
ing the war ana win De unaDieto taxe
care of the six or eight million men
who will return.
GERMANY WILL ALLOW
NO EVASION OF TAXES
To forestall attempts to evade the
payment of personal taxes by emi
gration after the war the enactment
of a law requiring persons liable to
such taxes to leave 20 per cent of
their taxable property as security In
the event of emigration has been pro
posed In Germany.
"The bill as drafted." says the
Board of Trade Journal, In quoting
the Norddeutsche Allgemelne Zeltung.
"provides that persons who have
hitherto had their permanent resl
denoe in Germany shall be liable to
payment of personal taxes and also
(so far as the federal states do not
order otherwise) to the payment of
state and communal taxes for a period
of five years after the conclusion of
peace. Certain exemptions may be
granted. Offenders against the law.
together with their wives and chil
dren, are to be deprived of their na
tionality, which is. however, recov
erable by subsequent voluntary pay
ment of taxes due."
