War Department Makes De
parture to Meet Problem
at Army Camps.
Washington, March 10. (Associated
Press Correspondence.) The war ae
partment has established a woman po
linn force.
With more than 1,600,000 men al
ready in khaki, and millions more
awaiting the call to the colors, the de
partment has turned to the so-called
weaker sex for assistance in disposing
of a vital wartime problem.
Thousands of young women have
gone to the vicinity of the military
camps. To see that these girls are
protected from dangers, the depart
ment's commission on training camp
activities has appointed fifty-five wo
men deputy sheriffs to do scouting
and patrol work, in all parts or tne
country the women are on duty under
the supervision of especially estao-
llshed girls' protective bureaus.
Girls actually resident In the vicinity
of the camps are protected, runaways
are restored to their parents, and
amusement places are scrutinized
carefully. The work offers an oppor
tunity for the officer to exercise dls
cretlon, sympathy, and a knowledge
of human nature that particularly are
her own.
These women are trained sociolog
ical workers and so peculiarly equip
ped for efficient service. Their duties
are Intensely personal in character
and are concerned chiefly with indi
viduals. Although co-operating closely
with the military authorities and local
police, they wear no uniform, badge or
distinguishing mark of any kind.
"Often," says Miss Maude Miner,
chairman of the committee on pro
tective work for girls, "the women pro
tective officers find girls in the vicin
ity of the camps who are attracted by
the presence of the uniform. Some of
these are girls who have answered ad
vertisements and who arrive in camp
cities with insufficient funds; others
are runaways from their homes In
nearby cities and country towns. A
girl resident of the town, who Is dis
posed to resist discipline, is taken to
her home by the woman officer and
her mother warned of her danger. The
officers also visit nearby amusement
places to discover young girls who
seem to need protection and to see
that local ordinances are obeyed."

New Development of Trench
Warfare Proving of Val-
' uable Assistance.
Paris, Jan. 16. (Correspondence of
the Associated ' Press.) Transmission
of urgent 'orders to troops In the first
line and the sending of Interesting in
formation to the rear by projectile Is
one of the new developments of trench
u'rfarn arrnntlnr to the' monthly re
view. La Science et al Vie.
One of the instruments employed
for this purpose by the Germans was
caDtured in a recent successful at
tack made bv the French at Moron-
villiers. It consists of a tin cylinder
about fifteen Inches lone and an Inch
and a quarter - In diameter at the
mouth of which Is placed a box con
taining the message.
The cylinder and message box are
Disced in a grenade thrower, wnicn

aerial torpedoes and grenades are
fired from a trench mortar.
The extreme range of these new en
glnes Is about thirteen hundred yards
which is generally sufficient to cross
the zone of French curtain nre.
The utility of such a system became
apparent with thq development of
barring fire that made the carrying of
messages by dispatch hearers always
hazardous and' frequently Impossible,
and with the wholesale destruction of
telephone lines by intense destructive
artillery fire.

While the water has drained away
from the larger part of the flooded
area, the Wen-An Hsien district still
forms a lake some two thousand square
miles in extent, approximately trian
gular In shape, with Tientsin at the
apex. Here the water, which at Its
height was twenty feet, still reaches a
depth of fifteen feet. .
The district is all below the level of
the rivers which enclose it and the
water cannot drain off, but must grad
ually disappear by evaporation and
percolation a process which at the
best will probably require five years.
In some of the river bends there
have been accumulations of Ice which
have so checked the flow of the water
