PRETTY Miss Gertrude G. Lee, Knights of Columbus
worker in Italy, has the honor of being the only
woman ever given audience by Pope Benedict without
wearing the customary mantilla. Search brought no
discovery of the necessary veil, but the Pope ordered
that she immediately be introduced into his presence,
saying that the K. of C. uniform was a sovereign pass
port to an audience with him.
Only Shadow Remains
Of U. S. War Machine,
Says Secretary Baker
(Copyright 1919, by International News Service.)
The great fighting machine which a year ago today had
amazed its associates and its enemies by completing the
grneling campaign of the Argonne immediately after strik
ing the swift blow in the St. Mihiel area, and immediately
before poising itself for another and even mightier advance
farther to the southeast, has been contracted again to a
modest fraction of its former size.
Demobilization Nearly Ended.
Of the four million men or more
which last November constituted the
strength of our army, scarcely a
quarter of one million remain. The
r?cord of transporting two million
soldiers to Europe in the last year
of hostilities has been duplicated by
returning more than that number in
the year since hostilities ceased.
The fleets of commercial vessels,
gathered from all the quarters of
the earth and concentrated in the At
lantic shipping lanes, have gone back j
again to their former and far-scat
tered owners. The dead-weight tons
re-delivered by the War Department
now mount to four million, leaving
scarcely more than 350.000 tons under
army control.
The abrupt termination of fighting
left us many thousands of contracts
in force.
Of these, more than 27,000 were im
mediately suspended, having a value
of $3,900,000,000 Of the~, 22,378?
more than 80 per cent?have been

77,000 graves have now been marked

The bodies of those whose families
desire it will be returned to Amer
ica. The others will be gathered in
centralized spots, which will be cared
for and. beautified so as to make
them fit resting places for the heroes
who are there. In our observance
of this and of ail the coming anni

VTTW YORK. Nov. 11.?cardinal
Murder, primate of Belgium, expects
the next elections in his country to
show a dangerous advance in revolu
tionary aodaliam. The cardinal voioee
his fears In a letter to George L. Do- j
val, chairman of the Cardinal Mereter
testimony executive committee, made
public here last night.
Liack of employment, definite and
continued, has resulted In "deep die
satisfaction and unrest" in Bslgtum,
the cardinal says. This has been
due to lack of raw materials for man
ufacturing as well as to the German
destruction of factories during the
war. Agents of the Bolshevikl *?"!
radical atheistic socialists are ex
' pVoiting this situation to further
their aims, he added.

The Red Cross is tj^e irtitest re

In Washington $35,000 has thus far

Justify an Immediate response from
the people of the Capital to the ap

humane agency to the end that it
