WILSON SEEKS FACTS IN THE N.Y. DRAFT ROUNDUP President Calls on Gregory For Data on Raids After Debate in Senate Washington, P. C.. Sept. 6 —Presi dent Wilson last evening asked At torney General Gregory to report to him all the conditions and circum stances surrounding the so-called "Slacker roundup" in New York this week, in which some 40,000 men were taken into custody by agents of the Department of Justice, the Military Intelligence and soldiers and sailors. The President's request followed a two-hour debate in the Senate, in which the action of the Federal au thorities was severely criticised, par ticularly by Senators Chamberlain, chairman of the Military Committee: Johnson of California; Sherman, of Hair Often Ruined By Washing With Soap Soap should be used very care fully, if you want to keep your halt looking its best. Most soaps and pre pared shampoos contain too much alkali. This d(ies the scalp, makes | the hair brittle and ruins it. Thq best thing for steady use is Just ordinary mulsified cocoanut oil (which is pure and greaseless), and is better than the most expensive soap or anything else you can use. One or two teasnoonfuls will cleanse the hair and scalp thorough ly. Simply moisten the hair with water and rub it in. It makes an abundance of rich, creamy lather, which rinses out easily, removing ev-1 ery particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and excessive oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and it leaves the scalp "soft, and the hair fine and silky, bright, lustrous, fluffy and easy to manage. You can get mulsified cocoanut oil at any pharmacy, it's very' cheap, and a few ounces win supply every member of the family for months.— Adv. i ZQ9 Walnut ST.

Upon objection by Sena tor Kirby, of Orkansas, consideration of the resolution went over until to day.

I've failed again! yes, I have been in an other combat and thanks to my punk shooting and a gun which would not work the Hun got away. It occurred yesterday morning, just around din ner time, when the Huns so wisely came over, for a Frenchman does hate to have his eats irregularly. But orders came for several pilots to get up In the air "tout de suite" and keep an eye out for photoplanes, as the sky was nearly clear of clouds, which would be very good for taking pictures the Hun would be sure to come over, it being the tirst decently clear day in a long while. HUUM Out of Sight We had no sooner gotten off the ground than high overhead we could see the white shrapnel breaking, white shrapnel is distinctly French, so that we knew there were Huns around somewhere even if they were so high we could not see them. Judg ing from the bunches of white puffs in different portions of our sector there was more than one Hun floating around taking shots with his camera. Keeping an eye on the shrapnel, we kept climbing as hard as we could, meanwhile keeping a sharp lookout for the Hun. Finally, among a bunch of white puff balls, 1 made out the dim black speck of a Hun, but he w'as a long way off, somewhere over Rheims. and since he was also at some 6,000 meters while I was only at 3,000 I continued to follow my leader around in an endeavor to climb up to those tantalizing white puffs. Starts After Him I kept my eye on that dim speck of a Hun while I followed the leader, kept an eye on my instruments and coaxed all the power possible out of my engine. She sure was working like a charm and cquld outclimb all the others. Just about the time 1 dis covered this fact, the Hun I had been watching, having been driven back over his own lines by the French shrapnel, decided he would try again and in our direction. Seeing him coming and still somewhat higher than us. I mentally remarked "hang the patrol," and commenced climbing for all the motor was worth. Whether the Hun saw me or not is a question but since he passed right over me on his way in, I don't see how he could help it. Anyway, he had not passed very far until he did see my little old Spad humping up toward him. and promptly turned right about face and headed for home. I was nearly at his level then and still coming strong, but when he turned around the situation had as sumed a different phase. Whereas, before I had been in nearly perfect position to attack (it being a bi plane), right under the tail, now that he was heading my way everything was in his favor. For a second I was at a loss how to meet the situa tion, for he w-as only 10 meters above me, and coming right over me as he was 1 had nary a doubt the pilot would dive on me and take a few shots as he went past, apd as soon as he got past his machine gunner would open fire. Takes a Shot There seemed to be nothing to do f but keep coming,' for having come up to fight I most certainly wasn't going to dive down again, even ir by TTATtRISBURG TELEGRAPH several quick turns and dives his aim might be disturbed, so 1 decided to try and get a few shots in on my own account by standing on my tail just as he passed overhead, such action. I well knew might send me "oft on a wing," but there was sev eral miles of space under me, so what was the odds, besides the situation demanded quick action, and 1 might hit the Hun. Nearer and nearer came the Hun plane with yours truly still climbing to the limit and feeling around for his two triggers. with no other thought in his mind but to plug that Hun. On came the Hun. never vary ing an inch as he sped for home, and 1 could see the small black cross on his lower wing, not really a cross, but merely two black strokes like a plus mark or a postal kiss. Tail Spin Costly So Interested and anxious was I to get as close under that Hun as pos sible that x did not notice that my plane was nearly on the point of stalling so hard was I endeavoring to climb. Therefore, when the mo ment came to Are as the Hun was nearly over me, and I pulled on the stick to get in my coveted shots, in stead of hovering on my tail for the several seconds necessary to aim and shoot, the plane promptly slid off on a wing and started whirling down ward in a "vrille" (tail spin), with me losing religion with every whirl, for I knew what had happened and whflf and 'sure was sore, because with every whirl of the plane I was losing height that I had striven BO hard to attain. To make matters worse. I was try ing to shut the engine oft with the wrong lever—there are two on a Spad. a big one to pull the power on and oft and a small one to regulate the air as one climbs higher. On some machines these levers work in opposite directions, on others both work the same. My machine still awaiting repairs I was flying an other pilots' Spad whose levers work opposite, thus before X had found the- big lever and slammed it swiftly shut, the plane had made six turns. Going at the terrific speed I was and turning at the same time, it was surely a lucky thing X was in a Spad. Any other plane would have broken under the strain. Even now I don't see how the Spad stood up under it without losing a wing. But one faces facts when in the air and since I came out of the "vrllle" finally with both wings still on. and saw the Hun just ahead div ing for home like all possessed, 1 promptly pulled the motor wide open again and started after. Open. Eire I was catching him too. but like a big chump, I didn't hold my fire until close enough to see the whites of their eyes, as the Bunker Hill saying goes, getting a bead squarely on him and opening fire at some 150 meters. Maybe it was less and maybe more, for distances are hard to gauge in the air, but if I had known how those two guns were going to act there would have been no long range fir ing I assure you. One would not work at all. the delicate trigger me chanism connected with the motor having broken. The other gun fired several times and jammed. Make. Fine Music Fixing that it shot a few more jammed tgain, once more I fixed it and that time a steady stream of lead poured out of that gun several seconds. It was the best music I ever heard and just as I was beginning to enjoy the tune and get a line on where my shots were go ing that doggone gun jammed like its mate, and there I was. right be hind a Hun and catching him at that with two useless guns. 600 cartridges and no way to shoot them. Wouldn't it give you a pain In deed? There was nothing more I could do there, but seeing another Spad attacking I stuck around for moral support, and had the satisfaction of seeing the Hun go down in a big spiral, none the worse for wear I presume. But at least, we had the satisfaction of knowing that the Hun did not perform the mission he was sent on. for we chased him back as soon as he came over and if he took any pictures I fear his speed in get ting back home blurred them some what. French Not In Fight When we four finally all landed it turned out that only we two Ameri cans had actually fired any shots, one Frenchman not having seen the Hun at all. while the other said he could not catch him. As 'for the "vrille" I tumbled into. I was so close to the Hun when it happened that my American comrade thought I was surely hit, for a plane out of con trol always falls into a "vrille." Strange to say, one of the Frenchmen saw my vrille, but not the Hun, and yet the Hun was right over me. Incidentally, during that combat I acquired a mighty good opinion of the French gunners handling that white shrapnel. "Archie," you know, generally stops talking when friends and foe get all mixed up—even the Hun hold their fire then—but this was not one of the times, for when I came out of that "vrille" and headed ! into position on the Hun's tail they were still blazing away at that bird of Kaiser Bill's, and I'll hand it to I them, they were coming mighty close too. Fine Shooting They had his height nearly to a meter and his speed to a hair. That was all very well in its way, but you want to remember little Walter was right behind said Hun and those big pear-shaped "Archies" were breaking Just about as unhealthy close to me as the fleeing Hun. Not that it bothered me a lot, for I was so inter ested in getting a bead on the Hun and fixing my fractious gun that . I only gave it a passing thought. Yes Dad, I agree with you that the guardian angel you spoke of has cer tainly taken good care of me so far. but doggone it! I wish he, she or It would steer one of my bullets into a Hun, for I sure am anxious to see something tumble when I shoot. And say! Have a heart and write a letter, once in awhile I tmve not had one for a week.

PENROSE RAPS PALMER'S OFFICE Savs That He Has Given Fat Jobs to Democrats in Han dling Alien Property Senator Boies Penrose took occa sion yesterday at Washington to not only deny the charges made against him by A. Mitchell Painter, Demo cratic national committeeman, in his speech here, but to show that Mr. Palmer as alien property custodian was taking care of Democrats. The Senator denies the Palmer charges saying: "I have had no connection or con cern with the frivolous revelations A. Mitchell Palmer attempts to make at Harrisburg, and only such knowl edge of it as is possessed by many other citizens who have viewed with amusement the downfall and humili ation of Palmer and his fellowtleld marshals in Pennsylvania. "So far as I am concerned, the statements of Palmer are entirely unfounded. Palmer has a habit of making reckless assertions and has on several occasions made statements which were without foundation, but which were absurd, concerning polit ical matters in Pennsylvania. "An utter disregard of any pre tense for the truth and apparently an obtuse failure to read how ridicu lous his statements are has fre quently characterized his utterances. "In this instance, as on previous occasions, his statements have failed to impress any one and he has been repudiated by his own party and by the people. "His vituperative and fanciful in dictments in the last senatorial cam paign are only remembered now on account of the humiliating defeat which followed them, accompanied by the loss of a very large part of his own party vote. "To Hide Rough Shod" t "In the present instance he started out with a few self-constituted boss es of the Democratic party in Penn syvania, chietiy oittceholders under the Wilson administration to ride rough shod over the Democratic voters at the last primaries in an at tempt to force the nomination of Mr. Guffey for Governor.

I in any way in accord with the Dem ocratic strength of the state. It is based solely on federal patronage under the Wilson administration. "Few of the real Democrats who held elective office from Democratic sections are in any kind of harmony with the Palmer-McCormick-Guffey leadership. It seems strange that any political leadership should so persist ently ignore and drive away such im portant party elements, but such is the fact. "The holding of federal office is the chief qualification for participa tion in the councils of the Palmer- Gutfey-McCormick coterie. The mem bers are all appointed and few are ever elected to anything. Hence the Democratic party in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania has been demoral ized. The slate arbitrarily set up by the Guffey-Palmer-McCormick out fit was repudiated at the primary election by the real Democratic vot ers of the state. "This is the actual Democratic situation which has resulted practic ally in the disbandonment for the time being of a great party. Refers to tlte President "President Wilson has ostentatious ly announced upon a solemn occasion in a speech to the Senate and House that politics should be adjourned and Mr. McAdoo has recently called upon the employes of the railways to get out of politics. It would be beiitting, becoming and decent if Palmer, McCormick and Guffey were called off and ordered to attend strictly to the supposed nonpartisan duties of their positions. . "Palmer particularly holds a posr tion of high financial and industrial importance dealing with property amounting to many millions, and he could well abstain from partisanship at this time and not permit his ac tivities to sink to the level of a village postmaster holding office as the re sult of partisan service.
