U.S. GIRLS MM 000DJNFR4NCE American Telephone Opera tors Solving One of Persh ing's Pressing Problems. WASHINGTON-, May 15 Reports showing how American "hello" girls are making good as telephone opera tors in France are contained in recent advices to the war department Their work is solving one of General Persh ing's pressing problems In modern warfarp, the telephone has assumed such importance that fre quently it Is referred to as the nerves of the army. It was not to be expect ed that General Pershing's forces were to rely on foreign systems of telephone communication. Accordinglv. vast quantities of telephone material were taken overseas and installed by the army signal corps. During 1917 men operators and French women were used for the work, but neither group was satisfactory". In November, lasc year, General Pershing called upon headquarters to forward overseas 100 trained operators, able to speak in- Itelllgently in both French and English. An effort first was made to All the quota from the French of Canada and Louisiana, but from more than 300 ap plicants only six could be considered. Then the announcement was publish ed in newspapers of this country, and from 2000 applicants there were pro cured twenty-five experienced opera tors and twenty-five possible eligibles. At present 7600 applications have been received, and from that list the first I group of 100 was selected and sent across; 150 more are in training schools and a reserve force of 40 Is i on file. j Wives of armv officers or enlisted men are not ellgihle to those units, j Unauthorized stories that wives of ! army officers had found It possible to rejoin their husbands In France by I enlisting In the phone units caused I the officers of the signal corps to be Hooded with applications which had to be rejected.

In a let ter to Senator Martin, the Democratic' leader, the president earlier In the day had emphatically reiterated his opposi tion to the phrasing of a pending reso lution authorizing further Inquiry bv the senate military committee into uv lation and other phases of war prep arations He declared he would regard the passage of such a resolution as 1 vote of want of confidence in the ad ministration and virtually as an at tempt to take over the conduct of the war. In designating former Justice Hughes, whose record In the New York Insurance investigation is well remembered, the president said he felt the department of justice's investiga tion was of the very greatest Impor tance; that if any person were found to be guilty they might be prosecuted vigorously and promptly, and that the reputations of those attacked might be protected if the charges were fouud groundless. The letter to Senator Martin was the subject of heated discussion. Senator Chamberlain of Oregon, who introduc ed the resolution of inquiry, called be fore the senate expenditures commit tee considering it, declared there was no Intention of Investigating the "con duct of the war," and that the resolu tion was worded as It was only to give the military committee, of which5 he REPORT OF THE CONDITION OF THE COMMERCIAL NATIONAL BANK at Ogden, in the State of Utah, at the close of business on May 10, 1918. .

The senator also issued a statement in which he explained that no charges had been made against Major General Squier or Rear Admiral Taylor, the arm and navy members of the aircraft board. The expenditures committee, by a vote of 3 to 2. amended the resolution hy striking out reference to the con duct of the war and adding a proviso specifically limiting the scope of the committee's activities If the senato refused to adopt the resolution as amended. Senator Chamberlain indi cated he would drop the investigation planned. Administration leaders were of the opinion tonight, however, that the I amendment would be acceptable at the I White House and that the resolution ' would be passed. If so, the military 1 committee will proceed Independent : ly of the department of justice inquiry.
