Realize Great Efforts United
States Will Have to Make
to Equal Entente in Artillery
Germans' Need for Material to
Replace Short-lived Heavy
caliber Weapons Is Growing
British Headquarters in , France,
July 1; American officers, who have
l8en studying conditions on this front
for some time past, Bay they are won
derfully impressed with the British
artillery, which has made them more
than ever conscious of the immense
efforts the United States will have to
make in that direction. The Ameri
can people have been quick to appre
ciate the value of great aerial fleets

service appealed at once to their
Imagination. But after all is said and
done, It has been guns and still more
guns, sheila and still more shells, that
have turned the tide of war in favor
of the entente allies.
The artillery has solved most of the
problems of modern war. It was the
artillery that blew the Germans from
their glim grip on Vimy ridge; It was
he artillery that shook them loose
from their noary three years hold on
the high ground about Messines. It
was the artillery that shattered and
crumpled the seeei and conorete de
fenses of the Hlndenburg line from
Arras nearly all the way to Queant.
It is tho artillery today that Is har
assing and pounding the Germans
until they are fairly dazed when the
Infantry attacks begin.
Depth of Battles Limited.
The limited depth of the battles
today is due to the fact that the In
fantry must not get by the protecting
cover of their artillery. It was with
their enormous guns, which no other
nation possessed, that the Germans
expected to blast their way to quick
victory in 1914.
Now their military ambitions and
their military prowess are being dash
ed to pieces against the rocks of skill
ed supremacy In guns and gunners.
Guns, airplanes and infantry form the
great trinity In modern war; they can
only move hand In hand.
The life of high velocity guns at the
rate of fire It Is now necessary to
maintain Is very short, necessitating
constant replacements and re-lining
of barrels. It is one of the most Big
nlficant phases of the war as it ap
proaches the end of the third yea.
that the allies. Including America,
with a wealth of raw material at their
disposal, can make these replace
ments, while the Germans are be
coming more and more desperately in
need In that respect. Their artillery
is very strong at times, but the shot!
lug In which they indulge is as noth
ing compared with what must be en
dured by the Germans from the al
lied guns.
Commissioner P. P. Claxton
Urges That Special Atten
tion Be Given Manual Train
ing and Laboratory Work,
Washington, July 1. Suggestions
for a program of school activity for
different types of educational insti
tutions during the war have Just been
Issued by Dr. P. P. Claxton, United
States commissioner of education.
Aftor pointing out that attendant
laws should be enforced as usual. Dr.
Claxton says:
"Parents should bo encouraged to
make all possible efforts to keep their
children In school and should have
public or private help when they can
not do so without it Many young
children will lack the home cara
given them In times of peace, anl
there will be need of many more kin
dergartens and MontesBorl schools
than we now have.
Larger High School Attendance.
'The attendance in the high schools
should .be increased, and more boys
and girls should be induced to remain
until their course is completed. A
school year of four terms of twelve
weeks each Is recommended for the
high schools, as for the elementary
schools. In the high schools adopt
ing this plan arrangements should" bo
made for half-time attendance, ac
cording to the i Fitchburg, Cincinnati
and Spartansburg, 8. C, plans, for a
large proportion of pupils as possible.

of the shops work should bo done

the national defense.
"In all high schools In which do
mestic science (sewing, cooking, sani
tation, etc) is taught, larko units of
time should be given in the summer
and fall to sewing for the Red Crosu
and for local charities,
"Classes for grown-up women
should be formed in which practical
instruction can be given largely by
lecture and demonstration In the con
servation and economic use of food.
Continuation Schools Demanded.
"For all boys and girls who cannoij
attend the day sessions of the high
schools, continuation classes should
be formed, to meet at1 such, times as
may be arranged, during working
hours or In the evening. All cities
should maintain evening schools for
adult men and women. In cities hav
ing considerable numbers of Immi
grants, evening schools should be
maintained for them with classes in
English, in civics, and such other sub
jects as will be helpful to these for
eigners in understanding our Indus-,
trial, social, civic and political life.
' "In few states is the supply of
broadly educated and well trained
teachers equal to the demand. The
normal schools should double their
energies and use all their funds in
the most economic way for the work
of preparing teachers. Appropria

also the attendance of men and wom

More Work for the Colleges.
"The number of students in col
leges, universities and technical
schools should increase rather than
diminish. Many of the older and
upper class men will volunteer for
some branch of the military service,
but all young men below the ago of
liability to selective draft and those
not recommended for special service
should be urged to remain and take
full advantage of the opportunities
offered by the colleges, universities
and technical schools, to the end thai
they may be able to render the most
effective service in the later years of
the war and the times of need that
will follow. Practically aT women stu
dents should remain, and all boys and
girls graduating from high school
should be urged to enter college,
technical school or normal school.
"All students should be made to
understand that it is their duty, to
give to their country and to the world
the best and fullest possible measure
of service, and that both will neeJ
more than they will get of that type
of service which only men and women
of the best education and training
can give. Patriotism and the desire
to serve humanity may require of
these young men and women the ex

restraint that will keep them to the!.'
tasks of preparation until the time
conies when they can render service
which cannot bo rendered by others.
Courses for Teachers Xeedwl.
"In agricultural colleges special In
tensive courses should be given to pre
pare teachers, directors and super
visors of agriculture and practical
farm superintendents. It should be
remembered that the scientific knowl
edge and the supervising and direct
ing skill of these men and their abil
ity to"""lncrease tho production capac
ity of thousands of men of less knowl
edge and skill are far more valuable
than the work they can do us farm

tural students in all colleges is only a
fraction more than one-tenth of 1 pel
cent of tho total number of persons
engaged in agriculture, or about 13
in 10,000 not enough to affect ma
terially the agricultural production of
the country hy their labor, but enough
to affect It Immensely by their direct
ive power when their college courses
have been finished.
"No college, university, or technical
school that can avoid it should permit
its faculty or student body to be scat
tered or its energies to be dissipated.
All should redouble their energies
and concentrate them on those things
that will be of most service during the
progress of the war and which will
prepare their students for the most
effective service of the country and
of the world when the war is over."
British Army Headquarters in
France, June 30 (By tho Associated
Press). Some interesting items of
German news have been gleaned with
in the past few days from letters
found in raided dugouts. One of them,
written from Bielefeld, Prussia, June
6, tells of an explosion' In a muni
tions factory at Detmold, and contin
ues: "It was terribly sad. On Sunday
ninety victims already had been
billed. One woman ,who has lost
four sons In the field, has now lost
her three daughters in the explosion.

newspapers give no reportNf the acj
Another letter written at Erfurt,
Prussian Saxony, May 28, says:
"The church bells have pealed a
farewell. This week all of them will
be taken away to be melted down and
turned into shells. No eye remained
dry when the pastor mentioned that
instead of ringing out tidings of an
early peace they must now cause
death and destruction."

Trade 'Conditions Are More
Favorable and Bank Depos
its Are Increased; Shipbuild
ing Increases,
San Francisco, Calif., July 1. Ac-
fording to the monthly bulletin to be
issued tomorrow by John Perrin,
chairman of the federal reserve bank
of San Francisco, trade conditions in
the twelfth federal reserve district
are active and increases are shown
generally in bank deposits, clearings
and building permits. Tho report
reads as follows:
Maximum production and minimum
necessary consumption of food stuffs
is a sound war principle. At least. In
production this district Is putting
forth a splendid effort. The fall and
winter were unfavorable for grain,
and the spring was cold and back
ward, but, in spite of this and be
cause of tho spurs both of patriotism
and acreage of spring planting.
amounting to 32 per cent more than
last year in Washington, Oregon and
Idaho, the government report, June
1, Indicates a yield In this district of
wheat, barley and oats In excess of
that of last year.
I'ool Weather Helps.
In California the deficiency in pre
cipitation has been offset by cool
weather during early summer, which.
has been Ideal for many crops. May,
which was generally short last year,
will show a greater tonnage this year.
Alfalfa will exceed 6.000,000 tons
against 5,000,000 last year.
Growers of deciduous fruits have
been greatly relieved by the announce
ment that such fruits will be classed
as neoessary food and not as a lux
ury, assuring greater demand, better
prices and more cars for moving the
crops. A generally larger yield is in
dicated. The crop of navel oranges, during
the season just closed, has been one of
the best in years, aggregating 2", 153
cars, as compared with 22,2.15 cars
last year. Shipments of Valencia or
anges are Just beginning and like
wise promise to be larger.
Shipbuilding Increases.
Shipbuilding Is probably the most
active Industry on this coast. Seattle
shipyards have $80,000,000 of con
tracts while those of Portland and Ta
eoma have as much more. The con
tracts of the Puget Sound district are
believed to exceed those of the San
Francisco district.
In California during May, petroleum
production averaged 261,004 barrels
per day and shipments 303,300 bar
rels, resulting in a reduction of stored
stock of l,22.r, 318 barrels. The In
creasing of shortage of crude oil is
rapidly creating a critical fuel situa
tion on this coast. It Is reported that
the Southern Pacific railroad, using
crude oil ns fuel for Its locomotives,
Is unable to supply Its requirements
and that by September 20 per cent of
its motive power will bo out of com
mission unless new supplies of crude
oil become available.
Not In ten years has the Pacific
northwest lumber market been so
active and remunerative as at the
present time. ' Demand has been such
that many large producers are now
absolutely out of the market. Lum
ber production Is near the maximum
Food production In this district
promises to be unexpectedly large
and materially greater than seemed
probable a month ago, although not
of record volume.
Trade Is active. Bank deposits,
clearings and building permits all
show Increases.
