ATHLETIC, MEET OF SERVICE MEN ON OF JULY Plans have been completed for the stupendous athletic meet beingr pro moted for the army and navy men of the aoutheastern department. Prac tically every branch of the service will b represented and the events will be "one of the most gigantic affairs to be one of the most gigantic affairs of its kind ever attempted. Keen in terest is apparent. A number of fa mous athletes will take part and many new stars recently discovered amonjr the army and navy forces will com pete. Men detailed for the purpose aro isrinr out straight awavs. mile and half mile courses, building- jumping pita and stakink off athletic fields. Committee, referees, judges, timers, starters, "etc.. have been appointed and are arranging to handle the vast num ber of entries that are coming in. Athletics are being , given an in creasingly more prominent place in the training of the men in the ser vice. Their value is being appreciated and the "machinery" to handle large bodies of men in athletic competition i3 fast being developed. At Camp Wheeler recently over seven thousand men took part in competitive games and athletic events, the. program run ning less than three hours. Individual prizes are being offered in the 60-yard dash. 100-yard dash, 220-yard dash. 1 mile run, 1-2 mils run, running broad jump, running high jump. Frizes will be awarded each member of the winning team in sema phore signalling, litter bearers' race and relay race. The regiment or company unit win ning the greatest number of points will receive a trophy. By comparison of records, the camp wlnnin this meet will be determined and will be given recognition. Smaller camps as' well as those where thou sands are stationed, have equal chances of winning the meet except that they have fewer men to draw from. This disadvantage, however, is offset in the smaller places, as they have comparatively more trained athletes, as most of the men in the aviation and officers' training camps have had athletic experience. More than one hundred T. M. C. A physical directors and a large num ber of athletic officers are putting in their time planning the details and taking care of every matter which will make this "Victory Athletic Meet" on the Fourth of July Independence Day a glorious success, providing a program in which thousands will take part and tens of thousands will be entertained. This meet has the endorsement of tha high military authorities and is just, another ptep.in the development of a national athletic program that has its 'part in promoting military ef ficiency. Most of the training camps will be open to visitors on this day and the people of the cities and towns near the camps will witness the activities. Tom Moore Allowed to Leave Co. M Tom Moore, the negro from Mobile, who shipped from Mobile to Pensacola on the coastwise steamer Tarpon and when landing here cast all of hl3 ob ligations aside and refused to remain, was yesterday mornin released by United States Commissioner Sullivan because there was no law by which he could be held. It is stated by eminent authorltlee that it is a safe proposition that Tom Moore will not return to his heme In Mobile on the steamer Tarpon, al though the "skipper" might like to ship him again.

PLAN MOBILIZING BRITISH ARMYftFTER COEAT WAR ENDS London. June 30. Although the end of the war may be far distant, plans for mobilizing the British army, when the proper time arives, are well under way. The military authorities, acting in conjunction with the ministry of labor, are perfecting the scheme by which the soldiers will be returned. to civil life with the utmost celerity, and at a camp not far from London there has already been a rehearsal of the methods to be adopted for dispersing the men. "Big as was the job to get men into the army," said an officer engaged in the work, "it will he a bigger job to get . them out of it. But the country may be sure that everything will be done to enable the soldiers to reach their homes and get employment with the minimum friction." The scheme is far-reaching. The au thorities hajve had to consider not only the situation at home but also how the plan will. fit in with the conven ience of France. Italy and the overseas dominions, and with transport facili ties from Saloniki, Meswtx5tanrIaTiPab estine and from btheiK parts of the world. How long it will take to de mobilize the millions of troops is a question to which even those occupied in the task are not prepared to give a definite reply. Eighteen dispersal depots are to hs established in England, Scotland and Wales. Every step has been worked out in detail. Before the men in Prance are ordered home, they will be asembled in the order of the districts from which they came, so that all may be sent in a body direct to the dis persal depot closest to the locality from which they joined the army. Each man will take with him his en tire kit, including his arms and per sonal equipment, steel helmet and box respirator. Previously he will have been deprived of his ammunition. On reaching the dispersal stations the men will hand over their equip ment. Everything must be given up except the uniform which the soldier is wearing, and his great coat, al though the coat must be returned after the month's furlough to which each man will be entitled. He will be per mitted to retain his uniform. The soldier will pass through sev eral huts before he is sent on furlough. In one he will be given a protection certificate, containing all particulars regarding his regiment, length of ser vice and destination. In another he will be given an advance on the pay still due him and postoffice money or ders in three equal installments for the i remainder. i On application, the soldier will be presented with an "out-of-work" in surance policy, valid for a year. This will entitle him to receive a fixed sum for a definite period from a post officer, If unemployed. reStBES IN THE LONG RUN ttfAWl THE trench, which always encircled the Roman cas tra, or camp, was brought to France by Julius Caes ar and used by him on the very battlefield where to-day the Allies and the Huns have 25,000 miles of trenches. With! rings of trenches, gradually drawn smaller, Frobably the first modern trench warfare, the Turks in 667 took Candia. Vauban, builder of Verdun, in 1673 employed the first parallel trenches, the system of the present war. Defeat, not foresight, turned the Germans to trench warfare. But Goodrich never had to dig in. Since twenty-two years ago Goodrich manufactured the first American pneumatic automobile tire. Goodrich has driven ahead to the big, graceful, masterful But whether Goodrich was revolutionizing tire manu- laciure Dy Dnngmg tortn Or originating the one practical non-skid, the cross bar, safety-tread, or tough black tread rubber, Goodrich built tires to one end-SERVICE VALUE what they are worth to the motorist on his car and on the road in COMFORT oi an easier riding car ( ECONOMY in gasoline saved, and LONG MILEAGE. at Small difference whether you buy GOODRICH SILVERTOWN CORDS, or BLACK SAFETY TREADS, you get SERVICE value tires. THE B. F. GOODRICH RUBBER CO. si la New Orle&iu Branch: 746 THUMB WOUNDED, DISABLED SOLDIERS STUDIED Washington, June 29. Every man who goes in the army or navy is now certain that If the Germans "shoot him up" he will not be compelled to sell pencils, or shoe laces to eke out an insufficient pension, or be im mured in a soldiers' home to rush out the years until death comes to his re lief. The United States government has studied the whole subject of vocational rehabilitation of wounded and dis abled soldiers. The experience of all the belligerents has been gone over carefully and the marvels of re-vocational education accomplished by some of them are fully noted and the federal board f or . vocational education has been at work on the proposition Since August, 1917.,The result is the Smith Sears act, tahich passed congress June 11. and provides a comprehensive scheme of rehabilitation for wounded and disabled men. Canada has been doing this work with great success and all of the Can adian experience has been freely given to the United States. The director of that work has been actively cooperat 'rfigwith the federal board for voca tlonalXewdmation and was sent by his government to appear before the sen ate committee and testify at the bear ings of the bill, which passed both senate and house without a dissenting vote. ' It has been demonstrated in Canade and Europe that no matter how bad ly a man may be wrecked physically, as a generality he still has latent cap abilities for something useful. If those capabilities may be specialized Into some line of trade the wounded sol dier already knew, that is done. The experience he has had and his knowl edge of the trade is a valuable foun dation to build upon. If the trade he is familiar with does not offer an opening then he is in duced to enter an allied trade wheae his previous knowledge will be of value. In some cases the man is en tirely re-educated and for an occupa tion entirely different from that which he had previously followed. It is seldom that a man is so badly shattered that he cannot be trained ,to something useful, which he can pur sue in the consciousness that he is do ing a man's work for a man's pay and that he is back in the current of civil life, a useful and happy citizen who asks no odds of anyone when it come? to making a living. The task to be discharged by the federal board of vocational education is a large one. Figures from the var ious countries show that for each mil lion! men in the armies, there will be one per cent, or ten thousand men, to be re-educated. This does not include the wounded who . are able to and eventually do return to their occupa tions. This does not necessarily mean that aaaiaaaaaaaaaaai the nrst American clincher tire- St. Charles St, New Orleans, I. HOW BEING ! LEMON JUICE TAKES OFF TAN Girls! Make bleaching lotion 1 if skin is sunburned, Squeeze the juice of two lemons Into a bottle containing three ounces of Orchard White, shake well, and you have a quarter pint of the best freckle, sunburn and tan lotion and complexion beautlfier, at very, very small cost. Your grocer has the lemons and any drug store or toilet counter will sup ply three ounces of Orchard White for a few cents. Massage this sweetly fragrant lotion into the face, neck. arms and hands each day and see how freckles, sunburn, windbum and tan disappear and how clear, soft and white the skin becomes. Yes! It is harmless. Adv. these are "dismemberment" cases. The general Idea is of the legless, armless or sightless man. They are far in the minority. The figures, which have now got down to fairly accurate averages, show that of the 10,000 half of them will be purely "medical" as against "surgical" cases. And of the 8,000 that are "surgical," that is, which need the attention of a surgeon as against a physician, 500 will be cases of dismem berment, which the men have lost members of the body. Three hundred will be cases where a leg has been lost and two hundred where arms have been lost. In 41,000 returned invalided Canadians there were less than forty cases of blindness. The real problem is the man who has suffered profound shocks to his system and perhaps been rendered in capable of standing the strain of his former occupation. A boiler maker, for instance, comes out with shell shock and his nervous System in tat ters. He could not stand the racket in a boiler factory, but he. with his knowledge of iron and steel working could very easily be made into say an expert lathe operator where there is no noise. And so on along the whole line of readjustments. The federal board for vocational ed ucation is the source of most of the war training courses and is going ahead with plans to begin the re-educational work at an early date. It is proposed instead of concentrating the men to be re-educated in large hospital-shops, to use the wonderful facili ties afforded by the many technical and agricultural schools of the coun try as far as possible. " HEAVY GERMAN LOSSES ADMITTED BY PRISONER With the American Army in France. June 27. Evidence of the heavy Ger man losses in the present offensive often is obtained from German war prisoners. From one of them it has been learned that the seventh German division of reserves lost aboot 1,200 men In a fruitless attack on Flemont. This may explain why the German commander, on the following day. withdrew that division from the firing lines. SisSl.:.:? 3p 3 S5 v-:n:::i?.v.3?i5f.s- mm I iMnV.
