WASHINGTON. April 16.- Three
major generals of the regular army,
Leonard Wood and Hugh L. Scott, irr
tired) former chiefs of the general
staff and each of whom trained and!
onimanded divisions during the war. J
and John I Chamberlain, inspector j
general, opposed today before the,
American Bar aspoeiation committee
inquiring Into the subject of military
justice, any plan of taking from the
president and the commanding gen
erals the control they now exercise
over courts martial. The present con-j
t roverey as to v. ar time sentences be?- j
san with the proposal of Lieutenant
oloncl Samuel T. dJiaell, then acting
judge advocate general i r pose In the
judge advocate general final jurisdic
tion of these cases.
The three officers heard today were i
in agreement that the proposed change
v-ould impair the disciplinary -although
all of them saw defects in ex
, isting laws or regulations which should
bo remedied. To meet complaints as
to excessive sentences, the officers!
were of the opinion that 1 1 1 presldt Dl
should be authorized by low to fix
maximum penalties In war times as j
v ell as in peace times.
"But whatever is done." Gex
Wood declared, "don't give us any pos
sibility of a Harry Thaw rase in the
array. Give us a simple, direct pro !
cess. We don't want the haggling over I
technicalities of civil court cas
General Chamberlain shared this
view as opposed to the suggestion that
the military legal system should be
put entirely under army legal authori
ties. He opposed the suggestion that
It be made mandatory that trained le
gal officers preside over courts
General Scott wa positive In his as
sertlon that control of discipline was
an assential function of command.
"The weakening of discipline- in the
Russian army." said General Scott who
was a member of the Root mission to
Russia, "destroyed Russia."
"The fundamental defect in our
court martial procedure," General
Wood said, "is not in the machinery
but in the failure to carry out its oper
ations properly."
General Wood urged that more care
ful scrutiny should be given to cases
before they were brought to trial; par
ticularly by division or department
commanders; that greater use bo made
of the many disciplinary measures not
involving legal proceedings at the dis-!
posal of commanders; that competent
counsel be assigned for all prisoners
to protect their rights and that Judge
advocates of courts incline toward the
Fn HOD system, by which the legal of
ficer merely presents the case and
does not take on the character of a
prosecuting officer.
The tendency of courts martial, all
three generals contended, was toward
protection of the accused. General
Wood said this was followed through
out the whole military justice system,
that the government was an imper
sonal agent and If there was error in
final action, it' was almost certain to
be on the side of the accuse l.
General Wood suggested, however,
that the practice of the Civil war Con
federate army of forming permanent
courts of officers physically dlsquall
led for active service could well be

ously attacked the attitude if officers
as 'not human' in dealing with discip
linary matters Part of this was due,
he said, to the feeling that "tho old
man," the post or division commander
insisted upon severe penalties.
General Chamberlain disclosed that
at the outbreak of the war Secretary
Baker ordered that every complaint
received by the inspector general be
investigated, and said his office went
carefully into charges made even in
anonymous letters.

SALT LAKE. April 17. The base
ballers at Bonneville park broke the
rule yesterday by deciding a game by
two runs Instead of by on1. Salt Lake;
took the second contest of the season
from the Portlanders. ?, to 1. It wis
an Interesting exhibition, with good
pitching by both sides and some good
base running and fast fielding.
Probably the chief feature of the bat
tle was a double steal put on by Hack
Spencer and Bill Bumler in the sixth
inning Another item of note was the
sensational catch of a short fly by
Ernie Johnson in the seventh. Inas
much as the Beavers had a runner on
third and another on first at the time,
failure to catch the fly might have re
sulted In a tied count Blue and Hetis
ling made a couple of star plays for
the Beavers and Maggert made tWO
nifty catches in center for the no:ue
Clifr Markle. a little Apollo of the
Bees, added another victory to his
string and collected a bucketful of
praise and plaudits from the crowd I
Cliff would have had a shutout witn aj
little better work on a batted ball In
the first inning. As it was, he had
a large shade over young LukonajVlc.
The latter delivered an acceptable ar
ticle of baseball, and for the most part
held the Bees with a steady hand.
Lukonavlc was lifted for a pinch
hitter in the seventh and Lefty James
finished out the string
Aside from the first inning, in wnich
they scored a run. the Beavers bad
chances to ring the bell in the seventh
and ninth, but failed to produce the
needed poke, The game ended with
a double play, which is unquestionably
a mighty slick way to end a ball game

Remember when beefsteak was 20c a
pound ?
Now it's 40 and 50 cents a pound.
Why? j
This chart shows that the price packers
have had to pay for cattle has gone up with
the price received for beef.
In fact, it shows that the "spread" be
tween cattle and beef prices has been
gradually reduced during the past 30 years
owing to competition among packers,
their increased efficiency, bigger volume,
and elimination of waste.
The packer s profit of only a fraction of
a cent per pound of meat has helped to
narrow this "spread."
Increased farm-production costs have )
made higher cattle prices necessary.
