At their meeting last night the Board of Aldermen laid plane for α compilation of the names of all men now in the service of the government from this city which -will be framed and hung in tlic council chambers at City hall. The employes of the street department had another petition be fore the t>oard for a raise in pay, which was laid over without action. Ordi nances were passed on first reading for the laying of sanitary sewers in Cleveland avenue and Seaman street. Tho resolution for the appointment of a committee to compile and prepare for framing the names of all men from this city in the Army, Navy or U. S. Marine Corps service was introduced by Mr. Clark. The committee appoint ed to take care of the matter consists of Mr. Clark, Mr. HHker and Mr. Wil son. Mayor TenBroeck was anthorlxed by action of the council to enter an agree ment with the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey for furnishing the city with oil. The contract calls for fifty two baxrels of heavy engine oil, at for ty-one cents a gallon, with ten per cent, discount. The petition of the employes of the street department was referred to the committee on streets and sewers, who have already tackled the proposition of working out a scheme whereby the men will be granted a raise from their present pay basis, and allowed large salaries. Chairman Wilson, of the street and sewers committeo introduced the ordinances for the sewers In 8eaman street and Cleveland avenue as duly advertised and approved by the Board of Health. Both were passed on their first reading. Mr. C'lark refused to vote affirma tively on the monthly report of the city comptroller, as did the others, owing to the fact that it contained an item for the audit of the city's books, which he hae consistently opposed since first undertaken.

"GERMANY LOOKS UKE THE DEVIL" American Dentist, Back From Berlin, Say· Only Soldier Pre sents Good Appearance. "The German soldier looks fln·, bnt everything else in Germany looks like the devil." This Is the summary ot Teutonic conditions by Dr. William Lavr, a na tive of Flint, Mich., who Is back vault ing his parents after practicing den tistry for IS years in Berlin, where he -jrved the kaiser's family profession ally. Doctor Law'· family waa able to leave with Ambassador Gerard's party, bnt the doctor himself was too 111 to travel and remained In Berlin nntll October 28, 1917. Doctor Law, after many delays In Europe, arrived here recently. "There are today 100,000 to 125,000 empty storee and residences In Berlin, where normally In peace times the number would not exceed 16,000 to 18,000," said Doctor Law. "The big change has been wrought because many businesses hare gone bankrupt, as people are moving In together to conserve necessities of life. Storee that are ορ·>η have little or nothing left in them. "The people cry for peace, and the leaders of the military party say : "We've offered peace to the entente and they refuse It,' So the people go on. They are the most patient lot 1 ever saw. "The soldier gets plenty of food taken from that en route from some supply house, perhaps to a hospital. The man at the hospital, who checks on the food, gets part of the graft. "I think the people of Germany can exist for another year. However, there Is no tea or no coffee and the beer Is about like water and tastes like var nish. When a person hasn't shoes now he goes barefoot, or else gets wooden soles put on the old ones. "Evory bit of oil Is gone, even to castor oil, which has been used for lubricating purposes. Every sort of factory Is engaged In making things for war, therefore there Is a shortage In everyday necessaries. "The military party of Germany will die fighting, whether they are killed by the allies or by their own people In an uprising after Germany has been crushed. The winning of the war for the allies now depends on how big a fleet of airplanes America can send to France." WEIGHING PRISONERS URGED New Baala of Exchange Suggeated by French Officer. The proposed exchange of prisoners between France and Germany brought ont a suggestion from an army officer who has had charge of prison campa. "You know," he eaid, "we feed our prisoners well and they are strong and hearty. The Boche, on the other hand, !■ pinching our fellows pretty badly. Most of tha nourishment they get la sent them from France. The only fair way la to exchange these prisoners by weight—so many hundred pooads of Germans for tit· ami weight la ^11 ■' ■ ' »J> HIRSUTE CONSERVATION LATEST WAR MEASURE Los Angeles, Cal.—Conserva tion of whiskers Is the latest war-time measure advocated here. If every man and youth would refrain from getting a haircut and shave for a month, mathematician· fleure something like (8,000,000 would be saved In labor, time, rent, electricity and gas. This, however, admittedly would be hard on the barber and the opposition of the ladles to a month'· growth of picturesque hirsute adornments on beau and husband is Insurmountable. BETTER CLOTHES FOR TOMMY Britain'· Discharged 8oldiera to Cet "Regular" Outfit Hereafter. liondon.—A long-standing grievance of Tommy Atkins Is to be remedied. On discharge he was «erred ont with a snlt of shoddy, described In the trade as "reach me downs," α cheap tweed cap and a muffler, the value being fixed at (4.20. A newspaper man who witnessed the discharge of the men who fought at Mons described the returning he roes as looking 11k· charity pension* ere. The press dealt with the complaint and the war office amended the scheme by substituting for the muffler a col lar and a tie and suggesting greater care In the fitting of individual suite. Henceforth these men ar· to be re leased for civilian life wearing salts of decent quality and cut, represent» lng $10, wholesale value. USE COLOGNE BELL FOR GUNS Great 56,000-Pound Rello of 1870 Dla mantled and 8awed Into Part· for War Purpose·. The Hague.—The great "kaiser's bell," whose sonorous voice many Americans may have heard above the roars of Cologne, has now been re moved from Its cage In the southern tower of the grand cathedral to be melted for war uses. It rang Its funer al chant on New Tear's night. The bell weighed 56,000 pounds and It was necessary to saw It In pieces to get It down. French guns captured In 1870 and 1871 were the material from which the bell was made, and it was first sounded on March 21, 1877, the birth day of William I. It took 27 bell ring ers to operate it.
