themselves if and how it might be "

i wanted to get into that branch of th9
service for which they deemed them- Jy
selves best fitted, and which would 1

was finaly decided to try for the hos- j"

oes According to military authorities
here there Is no necessity for such
ind legislation as is proposed by Senator
n a Sheppard and embodied in a bill relng
cently introduced in the Senate and
i if referred to a committee. This bill
b a consists of the folowing brief text:
ink "That the President is hereby authorres,
lzed to appoint for the army such
log number of chaplains of the Jewish
or faith, and assign them in such manner
as he may deem advisable." The
t jg President now has thla authority, and
the fact that no chaplains of this
1 faith have been appointed is not due
the to any interference with such action
