Washington, Jan. 4. Establishment of a department of munitions under a new cabinet head known as the seo I retary of munitions is proposed in a bill introduced today by .Chairman Chamberlain, of the senate military committee, as a result of its Investiga tion of war operations. Operate Year After War. The new department would operate during the war and one year there after. The new secretary of muni tions would have power, under the president's direction, to control arms, ammunition, food, clothing, equip ment, tentage, transportation and any other materials the president ' shall desltftiate as munitions of war, Government bureaus, agencies and funds necessary to a munitions admin liitration would be transferred to the new department which contemplates control of naval as well as army sup- Dlies, "The bill is intended to increase ana expedite the supply of munitions of war," said Senator Chamberlain. "One great trouble with the war establish. ment as disclosed by the investigation has been a lack of co-prdination and th seeming imposBiblllty of getting ridjOf circuitous methods of doing hiinlM. Until there can be co-ordi nation and methods more direct the' United States will be groping in the I dark for many months before we can place ourselves In proper fighting trim. "This measure places an jurisdiction over munitions of war, which is de fined at length in the bill and cover ing everything, in one person known as the secretary of munitions; subject to the direction, of course, or tne pres ident. Co-ordinates All Bureaus. "It co-ordinates all of the bureaus, cuts red tape, does away with useless declarations which had tended only to hamper direct action, and gets to tne heart of the whole situation, "i believe if congress can see Its way to the enactment of this measure, and tha croDer man is placed at the head ef the department of munitions, Amer ica will soon be occupying its proper place at the battle front. It wM be noted that the measure la only in force during the continuance of ine which brings it into existence," McKellar Offers Bill. Another war bill, Introduced today by Senator McKellar, of Tennessee, as a result or tne commiuee s inveaiigsv tlon of the system of army supply reach a vital spot In either machine or pilot. . Yet It is not possible to avoid fly ing through a barrage at times. Tho latest type of anti-aircraft guns can place a barrageaa high as 23,000 feet, and it 18 not practical to turn about and try-to climb over the barrage. It takes a very highly specialized scout machine to climb to 23,000 feet, and the heavier machines cannot achieve that altitude under any circumstances. The longer the airman hesitates to run the barrage the longer he is ex posed to the Are. Anti-aircraft gun nery at the front has now reached a point where the range la calculated to a nicety almost instantaneously by processes of triangulation, and there fore the flyer who hesitates is tost The only thing he can do is to take his chance, just as a sh.p at sea takes a storm and accepts its chances of weathering the gale. Next to the barrage, the most feared of the ground defenses Is the "cluster." This Is ti grouj of six anti-aircraft shells sent up together and placed just ahead of the ma chine, with one shell aimed to burst the tip of the fuselage, two on each side of It, two on each Bide just ahead and one farther and directly ahead, The side-slip is the favorite pro tection against these "clusters." The anti-aircraft gunners get their range nowadays so accurately -that the slightest move out of range Is fairly certain to get the machine out of dan ger's way- unless the gunners have anticipated this mo- j, as they some times do, by placing another cluster at tho most likely spot for an expected side-slip, The side-slip is produced by tip ping the plane down slightly, and while flying ahead, dithering over sideways and down, thus changing the range without see mi g to do so, for the gunner looking up sees as much of the machine as before and is justi fied in estimating its height to be the game; In reality, the machine is a livila 4o one side and several hundred feet lower as the result of his skilful side-slip. Below a height of 5,000 feet anti aircraft guns cannot be used to ad vantage, but machine guns and Titles provide equally dangerous enemies. A machine gun playing a stream of 500 bullets a minute Is no mean foe, even though the bullets are not explosive.

BY SHIP COMPANY anl m I lay helpless when my wife or dered our first bottle of Tanlac from El Paso, Tex.," writes Harry E. Scott, of Dragoon, Ariz., under date of Nov. 15th, In telling of his remarkable re covery from an Illness that had defied the skill of the best physicians for- over two years, to say nothing of his failure to find relief at leading health resorts. Mr. Scott's voluntary statement has the.rue ring of sincerity and grati tude and is unquestionably one of the most remarkable ever given In con nection with a proprietary medicine. Mr. Scott's letter was addressed to C. i Moss, a well-known druggist of Benson, Arizu who has the Tanlac agency for that town, and was for warded by Mr. Moss to the Tanlac oilices in Atlanta. His letter follows: Dragoon, Ariz.. Nov. IS. 1817. Mr. C. F. Moss, Benson, i Ariz. Dear Sir: As yau expressed a de sire to hear more about my case, I will try and tell you part of it I was down and out nearly all the time for two years with rheumatism and stomach trouble, and went to eight doctors, two of whom were osteopaths. Three of them refused to take my case, saying It was Incurable, and the otners might as well have done so, as they did me no good. I guess I have taken a barrel bf medicines internally and externally, I also went to Hot Springs and 'out of all that was ever done I never got over one week's re lief at a time. After going down to one hundred and sixteen pounds which is very light for a Bix-footer I kept getting worse until I couldn't move, even to feed myself, had no desire to eat and couldn't sleep more than two hours a night Some of the officials of the mine, of which I am foreman, would call to see me, then go out and say, Poor old Scott has fired his last man.' My wife thought I would never aret out of bed alive, and she knew my condition better than anybody else. At last when 1 lay helpless my wife ordered a bottle of Tanlao from the druggist at El Paso, Tex., which was the nearest place we could get It at that time. One evening about, four days after I began taking Tanlac I ate a fair meal and enjoyed IV-1. rirat in many months. By the time I had taken half of. the first bottle 1 thought I had a good appetite, but when I finished my second bottle 1 could hardly eat enough to satisfy me. Well, I have just finished - my ninth bottle, have gained eighteen back en tha Job every Washington, Jan. 4.

The lee block- nr. :n Maw Vark harber and adiacent ujatara. combined with another day of zero weather, today caused muoh con cern to the fuel " administrators and transportation effioials who have been endeavoring to relieva tne alarming shortage of coal.

Danv in the yards of tht Sloane Ship yard corporation, of Seattle, making a profit of H20.000, and later obtained for the Sloane corporation contracts for twelve more ships, on which It made a 5 per cent profit. Dissatisfaction Expretied. Senators questioned Mr., Ferris closely as to the reason for letting contracts for the twelve shiua to tne Cllnchfleld corporation, an owner but not a builder of ships, and expressed lt-n hound in the bar last night Pow erful tugs worked for hours before thev succeeded In plowing a lane through the ice for the scows. Frozen to Two Munoreatn otreet, The Hudson river is frozen down to Two Hundredth street and the Har lem river down to one Hunarea ana Fortieth street. For the first time in years Long Island sound has been partly frozen over. K to ten Island wa ters are choked with floating ice, threatening to cut oft the large coal terminals there. Several hundred employes of the street department were today ordered M to assist in the work of breaking the Ice nround coal-laden barges. Despite the handicaps, Reeve Schley, the fuel administrator, was hopeful of getting considerable coal here during tne uay. As hundreds of families, unable to get coal, have been burning kerosene. the supply has dwindled to sucn an extent that an oil famine is now feared. Swamped With calls Tor Aid. Meanwhile suffering has increased among the poor and charitable organi zations nave oeen swamped witn cans for help. Many school buildings were again cloned today, with little pros pects of their reopening until next week. The severe weather has worked much hardship to motormen on trol ley car lines and the Brooklyn Rapid ment the four shins at a price so much higher than it was paying for their construction. Mr. Ferris deolared he knew noth ing; of the financial arrangements, but admitted recommending tha cuncn- field corporation to Uen. ueethais in a letter. The committee asked that the letter be produced tomorrow. HINDU HELD FOR PLOT COMMITS SUICIDE Jacksonville, Jan, 4.
