Monument Unveiled . to Gas Mask A PASSING REVIEW BY THE NOTATOR Chemist By Chas. McCann, United Press staff correspondent. LONDON, Dec. 3. A simple memo rial has been unveiled here to the man who, next to the kaiser, was cursed during the war by more millions of sweating soldiers than any other man in Europe and whom millions more, gasping in a cloud of poison gas, have had cause to bless. The memorial; unveiled in the examin ation hall of the Pharmaceutical Socie- ey, is to Lieutenant Colonel E. F. Har rison, inventor of the box-respirator or gas mask of which over 20,000,000 were manufactured for British and Ameri can soldiers, ad which almost any sol dier who has seen active service will say saved his life.

Peerless Comedy 10 and 30c. At the outbreak of the war Lieuten ant Colonel Harrison was a civilian, a distinguished chemist with three de grees. He made several unsuccessful attempts' to enlist, but in 1915, at the age of 47. managed to get into the Sportsmen's Battalion as a private. His entrance into the army synchroniz ed with the first German gas attack at Ypres, and he was immediately trans ferred to the special branch of the Roy al Engineers. He quickly became a leader among the band of chemists who made up the anti-gas department. After many experiments' he perfected the lox-respirator, rendering the wear er immune from fumes of any known poison gas. He received rapid promo tion, and finally became controller of chemical warfare. He died in Novem ber, 1918, just at armistice time, from pneumonia, aggravated by exposure to gas during the course of his experi ments. Shortly before his death he learned he was to be promoted to the rank of brigadier general and that he had been awarded the Legion of Honor. oo PACKER EMPLOYES OUT ON STRIKE SATURDAY, December 3d, Bessie Love in "The Midlanders," a -dramatic narrative of pioneer society in the colorful Mississippi valley.

Premier Briand to day explained to the French cabinet the results so far obtained by the Washington conference, stressing par ticularly the reparations situation. -oo The Appeal is mailed to your post office address at 75 cents a month. During the week Senator Oddie flar ed into print defensively on his vote on the Phipps-Townsend-Dowell fed eral road bill, but as he makes this a personal matter between himself and former Highway Engineer Cottrell, and the latter being out of the state, and alo off the Nevada pay roll, it needs no reply from the former engineer. The main contention of the junior senator of Nevada is that the retrocative feat ure is embraced in the bill, but accord ing to those familiar with the bill, the roads and the retroactive feature the law as it stands is some $600,000 shy of what was anticipated. If the senator dotnsn't believe this feature of the bill all he has to do is to ask the Washoe commissioners who get no draw-down of retroactive money from the govern ment on their recently constructed con crete highway between Reno and Car son. Fortunately the junior senator will have some five years to explain this matter, as his term of office cov ers that period. In the meantime it will take a clearer letter to the public to overcome the shortage. It was far short of a $600,000 letter to the advo cates of the original bill which before Tasker was handed that amendment, by some eastern brother who slipped the package to him, included the retroac tive feature which would have covered many of the roads that are now out of the rebate. The recent federal trial jury has concluded six weeks of labor, resulting in so many convictions and fines and imprisonments that the Washoe county jail is well filled, the exchequer of the government replenished and another batch of defendants is awaiting indict ment and trial. Now this all harks back to the question of the appointment of a special prosecutor for such cases, which is advocated by the present fed eral attorney and his deputy. During the session many a civil action lan guished and much money is involved in issues that are held' up all on account of Mr. Volstead. The appointment as suggested sounds good, but what relief does that bring without another federal judge to help the prosecutor? One without the other does no untangle the situation, and it is confessed that the business has multiplied five-fold. Here is where the Democratic party slipped la cog. it was suggested at one time. Want to Keep New Ship TOKIO, Dec. 3. The proposed scrap- Many New Proposals By United PressJ WASHINGTON, Dec 3.-Great Britain and France have both offered to withdraw from their lear.ed terri tories in China, and Japan offered to withdraw from Shantung, but not from Manchuria, it was learned today. The French position, according to Viviani, is that it is willing to withdraw if the other nations do. The British attitude is the same. necessity of two laws covering the one J CARSON IN LEAD AT subject. - During the week two small political volcanic eruptions came to pass in the Republican camp. First, the iro'w.scd not far remote, that provision he made for a special federal attorney to help, and also the naming of another judge, both naturally would have been Demo cratic, but the ease of the saddle did not chafe, and the boys were thrown rudely from the seating with a sudden and tremendous jar last fall, and when they came to the game was over and the other fellow was doing the riding, which simply reflects bad judgment. So much on that score. Now a little figuring clarifies the solution. First and foremost George Springmeyer has insisted that he be named to fill the place of Billy Wood burn, while the other faction of the Re publican party can't quite forgive George for his past, therefore, they have thrown a few ties across his rail, but by the creation of a special prose cutor this makes room for George and likewise the other faction. Then should it be necessary to have another judge named, who could relieve and help take up the work with Judge Farrington, you can see that it would make room for other ambitions that otherwise can not be satisfied, and with it all it is tremendously good politics, and don't forget but there is a movement toward this plan, and if the past six weeks' is any criterion it is necessary if any thing but booze cases are to be tried in the federal court. During the federal court trials in this city an officer from one of the counties made some remarks at one of the gath erings about the Arlington, in which he stated that the next legislature would through necessity have to repeal the state dry act, or amend it to con form with the federal law, for should a series of trials come to any county it would send it to the bankrupt court. ile cited one county where hve jury trials resulted in five acquttals and the costs ran into five figures. It is a cer tainty that with Uncle Sam footing the bill and collecting the fines, and not caring financially if a case is lost, that the desire to spend county money will not be as keen as the advocates of law and order first anticipated. It only takes about half a dozen trials in a county to exhaust the venire and also the treasury, so the dry advocates will have to do a lot of new work to con vince the high-rate tax payers of the END OF FIRST HALF One of the largest crowds witnessed the football game this afternoon be tween the Carson Hi and Reno Hi teams for the championship of the state candidacy of Hugh Henry Brown of that has been on the local grid this Tonopah as either senator or governor. The advocates in the silver camp be lieve that he is timber for either of the political places, and there has been no denial of his qualifications. Brown once had political ambitions and was beaten, but so was Oddie, so there is no telling year. The first half of the game was in fav or of the home team, the score standing 13 to 0. Reports coming from the field as the Appeal went to press was to the effect that Carson Hi was putting up a real about a come-back in Nevada. The fact ' game of football and the visiting team that Miller is off in the lead for the 'was doing its best to save the day. has made it hard to advocate a candi date against him, and he is still going, never stops in fact. He had his Thanks giving dinner at his home, surrounded by the family ; the next day had a menu in Reno, and then passed over to the sugar refinery, and this kind of move ment is going to keep Hugh Henry, Billy Pitt, Joe Wilson, or any of the rest of 'em hustling. And have you noted that the Republican press has droped Pete Buel, Sain and the others like flabby cakes? They have been counted out. I While on the Republican senatorial ' timber it was noted that the Elko Free Press has again dug up Sammy Arentz. The echo didn't get very far, for Arentz is yet busy explaining that counterfeit mining bill that some of the big busi ness advocates handed him when he first broke into the game in Washington. Until that is off his constitution, or un til it is disposed of to the satisfaction of the state that believed he was wised up beyond being the sack holder in a snipe hunt, the rest of the state papers are keeping off his trail. It is believed that the Republican party is figuring for seasoned timber. There is one element in the Republi can ranks that has ''em guessing and that is Ed Roberts. Now Roberts is going to be in the race, either for con gress or senatorship, and some of the wise ones in Reno know it and it has them worried. Ed has the same old smile, has never forgo' ttn a man, wom an or child, knows them by name and politics, and he has been doing a little circulating recently. He was noted while in Carson this week and the glad hand of the old guard of the G. O. P. was extended. Just keep your eye on Roberts, he figures on a come-back and is in training. .

Between ranks of madly cheering people who completely filled the walks and win dows, Marshal Foch rode in a parade down Market street from the ferry to the civic center upon his arrival here today. oo OPEN SCHOOL BIDS; NO CONTRACT LET The school board of trustees this af ternoon opened the bids for reconstruc tion of the school house under the ap proved plans of Architect Ferris of Reno. The following bids were receiv ed, read and taken under consideration: J. B. Dillard, $24,225; C. H. Sellman, $25,450; Rouse & Belz of Reno, $26,134. The plumbing bids were as follows: F. C. Savage of Reno, $1,774; Wm. Ware of Reno, $2,481 ; J. C. McDermitt, $2,833; Wm. Wagner, $2,900. ally. Pittman is as good as nominated for senator. Cole, Brodigan, Malley and Deady are going to get back into the fight for their present positions. Fowler is figuring. Bill Kennett, clerk of the supreme court, is going to run. for when pinned down he said he was pawing to go, and there appears to be no opposition in his own ranks, so you can tally that point Maurice Sulli van still has faith in himself for the governorship, yet he has not made the announcement, as Scrugham is to be figured with if Henderson balks, while those grooming Rogers have not found him hard to curry. But candidly, the governorship fight in the Democracy is just as high in the air as is the Repub lican program on the senatorship, and independently Judge Sanders is out for his old job on the supreme bench, and that is the news of the week.
