Tulsa, okla.. .Inn. 4.-- Suffering from
gas shortage during the cold wavi" just
i nded was due to the fact that distrib
uting mains in towns in Oklahoma sup
plied by the Oklahoma Natural Has
company are for the most part inade
dilute for the service demanded of them,
according to officials of the gas com
pany. This applied especially to Tulsa,
which has grown so rapidly the last
live years that it is claimed it will be
necessary before long to replace all the
old gas mains with others much larger.
The Oklahoma Natural is connecting
with till available new wells in the
Tulsa district, it was stated, in order
to maintain the gas pressure at near
the demand. In spite of this fact, Tulsa
suffered severely on account of short
age of gas.

guns they do not di.sc.over the camp

At another place a supply train was
painted to represent a row of cot
tages and wejit through without a
mishap from the enemies' aeroplanes.
Over and over, guns made from sec
tions of telegraph poles and the fore
truck of a wagtiu with board.-! for gun
shields have foiled the. Clerma.iis. One
particular stunt of the French is to
put a couple of ounces of gunpowder
on a tin shelf at the muzzle and lire
it by electricity, especially when the
real gun is being Mred elsewhere. The I
dummy gun always tempts the enemy I
to waste manv rounds of perfectly I
good live shell and wears out his j
nergy as well, for there Is nothing so
(iLshraj-tenintr to a military man !
to discover that he has been fooled.
Machine guns are hidden by the
empUM-i-inenus being covered by sod
care being taken that no sod be re
moved nearby. Dummy trenches are
built in places which will not endan
ger the real position. The Kronen of
ten cover these dummy trenches with
the limbs of trees which soon wither.
This,' of course, gives the enemy an
idea that the trenches were concealed
by tree limbs which have withered
and they invariably open fire on the
dummies. Karly In the war the grav
ing filumes and white gloves of the
men proved excellent targets for the
Herman gunners and had to be aban
doned. Pretty soon trench warfare
became Hie all Impr.'tunt way of light

Oklahoma City, Jan. t. Some confu

Hovei'iinr Williams be followed. The

In a majority of cases they have waited

and no matter where tliey may he. they

Lyon suggests thai the governor issue
a proclamation giving all prospective

AmrrhwiN To Study The Art.
In the American Army the art of
camouflage will be under the direc
tion of the Engineer Corps aad the
Chief of Kngitieers has kerned a call
for "ingenious youn,c; men who are
looking for special entertainment In
the way of fooling the Oeruians." The
F.ngineer Corps have been making a
study of camouflage for some time but
they wi'l welcome new ideas on the
subject and their call for men for
this new branch inchides various
trades and professions. They espe
cially desire sheet metal workers, sign
and scene painters, carpenters, cabinet
makers, stage carpenters, property
men and photographers. These men
can make themselves useful by devis
ing means and ways of deceiving the
eneaiiy wherever a machine gun is set
up or a trench taken, where a new
road is opened or a new bridjre built
Moving picture directors, scene paint
ers and movie property men will be
particularly useful in this line for they
are adepts in the use of trirJts In
scenery. Then too they are especially
-eurcerui along tnese lines. Already
our iroV "Over There" are making
luse of ,ho nrtw w'ence as the tents
of onb ent,rp oamI are camooftared
wlt1' branches of trees. It 1 expected

will be hidden by scene painters and
wire workers in order that the enemy
aeroplanes may be blinded as to the
position of our men.
Ma-riiM' CamouftUjre.
Marine Camouflage began early hi
the war when Germany hid her U
boats by vising her wlreess masts as
supports for stills, which made them
appear to other vessels as harmless
sail boats until they were dose enough
to their prey to fire a torpedo. Another
ruse practiced by U-boats w.is to hide
behind some noutral vessel and then
come suddenly from behind and fire a
torpedo into the unsuspecting mer
chantman. One particularly bold trick
of the U-boat is told. It seems that a
big American vessel was zigzagging
its way off (he Irish Coast on a moon
light night, when suddenly the man
on watch saw a boat bobbing up nnd
down on the water. By the aid of
of slate lo svlul them to the soldiers.

glasses Ihey soon discovered that it
was a ship's lifeboat. When the boat
was overhauled it was found" empty.
Just at that time the gun crow sighted
a submarine prepared to fire. The
Captain swung his ship around and
the torpedo passed, the bow within five
feet. The gun crow fired twice and
the gunners were not sure of the effect
of the shot. However, the big vessel
escaped destruction. The life boat
was undoubtedly a. ru.se of the sub
marine to get at the big vessel.
Another camouflage by the U-boat is
to surround the periscope with drift
wood whioh gives It the appearance
of a harmless looking mass of sea
weed or debris, and. before the Ship
selected as a victim gets close enough
to discover the trick the torpedo does
its work.
Battleships are always painted a pe
culiar gray which Is a sort of camou
flage of the ocean. Recently it has
been suggested that the superstruc
ture of the ship be painted a blue to
match the sky or some other color to
blend with the horizon. Another idea
is to paint the ship in a wavy design
to represent the ocean. This makes
the ship rather indistinct in the ey
of the periscope.
A well known naval authority in
speaking of Marine Camouflage re
cently declared that clever feats of
the art enabled vemeis to appear much
shorter than they are tending to de
ceive the U-boat marksmen. There Is
also another type of deception such
as painting a fake bow waves which
gives the vessH the appearance of
traveling along at a much higher rate
of speed than they are actually going.
This fools the U-boat gunner and he
usually fires too eoon and wates his
torpedo long bnfore the boat actually
reaches the point aimed at' Recently
It has been given out that Edison has
Invented a folding r collapsible boat
One In which the smoke stacks and.
sails will fold down. The vessel can
be painted the -color-of the water and
when the danger rone Is reached the
Captain can fold down his masts and
funnels and Blip through the water
unobserved. It ts believed that Yan
kee Inventive genius will exceed the
clover and artistic Frenchman In this
hocus pocus branch of the service of
Mars, and that we shall soon hear of
some new and remarkable camouflage
by the American Engineers.
