Bonus for Submarines. .Mr. Stevens has been assigned to duty aboard the Cheyenne, mother ship of the submarines on the Pacific • oast. Submarine duty, while the most unpleasant of all, offers many advan tages in the way of increased pay. For instance, every man aboard a sub mat ino is allowed $5 extra a month for clothing allowance, the acids used In the batteries being particularly hard on clothes. Every member of the crew is allowed $1 for each dive the boat makes, with a limitation of not more than 16 dives per month. Needless to say every boat submerges at least 16 times in a month. Drill and all of the formalities and regulations observed aboard a big ship are dispensed with aboard a submarine or torpedo boat and this fact too adds to the at tractiveness of assignment to a sub mersible. No Foreigners Accepted. Just how the personnel of the navy has changed within the past decade was emphasized this morning when a husky Irishman inquired of Mr. Foltz if a man who had taken out his first papers could enlist. "No one but a citizen," said Mr. Foltz, and when the applicant had left he became reminis cent. "Ten years ago, 66 per cent of the enlisted men of the navy were for eigners; 20 years ago at least 75 per cent were foreigners. I remember when 1 enlisted and fl«|t went aboard ship, there were but 120 Americans of a crew of 650. Thirteen different lan guages were spoken on that ship. Now it's différent though. None but a citi zen is accepted in the navy. Declara tion of intention won't do. We have to send those fellows to the army." 'And that was a husky lad." he added. "I would like to have enlisted him gs a fireman. Those are the kind of fellows we are looking for—-brawny. Intelligent chaps." J. H. STEELE DEAD.
