RELIEF WORK IN EUROPE IS URGED ..American Representatives Abroad 'Tell of Terrible Conditions. (By Associated Press) WASHINGTON, Jan. 13. Continu ation of relief work in Europe is urged in telegrams from American diplomatic representatives there, transmitted to the senate by President Wilson in response, to a request for information regarding European dis tress. . Hugh Gibson, American minister to Poland, said continuation of relief of children in that country "was abso lutely necessary to avoid starvation." The Polish government and people, he said, were "straining every re source but were unable to provide even a minimum for the maintenance of children." The American commis sioner at Berlin said a large propor tion of children in all German cities were seriously underfed and that the relief' work should be continued to save the life and preserve the health of an entire generation." Commissioner , Frazier at Vienna said 300,000 children there were being fed daily by the American relief ad ministration and that great suffering would follow cessation of the work. All of the reports agreed that the American relief work was assisting in maintenance of public work and gen eral attention in .European countries. In transmitting the reports the pres ident said more complete information would be furnished later. MOOSE DELEGATES VISIT GREENVILLE (By Associated Press) ' GREENEVTL.L.E, S. C, Jan. 13.

The Pensacola Community Service Club in Us new quarters on South Palaf ox-st. has proved a favorite re sort for men in all branches of thi service, both of the officers and en listed, personnel. Every Sunday and all during th week; the men drift in for a few hours "at home" which is practically what tho club represents to these men of which the greater number are practi cally: strangers while in the ctiy. An Informal club atmosphere pre vails and In the main recreation haH the first entrance to the club is a big heater around which are comfortable lounging chairs.. Pool tables, a maga zine stand and telephone are in the southern, end and opening into the main hall is the reading and writing room, living and music room and large general writing room. The latest pop ular music and magazines are kept on hand and in . the library room is a good collection of books' which have proved favorites. Everything possible is arranged to make a comfortable home atmosphere for the men. It i3 hoped to later install a stove when hot drinks and light food, may be pre pared. A rest room and meeting room for women's organizations is also maintained as well as a room for meetings of the American Legion, Boy Scouts and other like organizations.

Many of the new men transferred to the local station have chosen to make their headquarters at the club while in town and the officers in training from Argentine are frequent visitors. MANY RECRUITS GAINED IN ARMY Scarcity of Work and Former Service Brings Many Men into Army Life. The army is getting many men and all peace-time records were broken by the, recruiting service during tha past month, and the Birmingham, Ala., recruiting district, which in cludes Pensacola, accepted and for warded to the various organizations 515 men. which is the greatest number ever accepted by this district in ono month. Of this number Pensacola re cruiting station accepted 57. There being a total of 12 army recruiting stations, in the Alabama district, in cluding Birmingham, Mobile, , Mont gomery, which are much larger than Pensacola, and eight other cities of less population, basing Hhe percentage of the cities, it can be readily seen that Pensacola has done her share to ward furnishing her quota. Sergt. S. T. Garrett, in charge of the Pensacola office, says that another record . will be broken in January if the applications continue to flow in as at present. The first twelve days in January have already netted the local office with 31 acceptances and indica tions are that still a greater number may come into the service before,the end of the month. The fact that the army's educational and vocational training system has been in operation only a short time and a great number of young men have been discharged recently and have been talking what the great democratic peace time army has done for them toward schools and trade training has been mostly re sponsible for the great rush to th4 ranks. Sergeant Garrett made a short suc cessful trip to Andalusia and Florala last week and reported back with 10 men ready to sign up for enlistment. The men, paid their own transporta tion here and after hearing so much about the coast artillery on account of the target practice now being held at Barrancas all 10 of them requested to be stationed here. Five , of them were turned over to Barrancas and five were sent to the Fifth Division at Camp Jackson, South Carolina. Seamen have observed the glow of Rio tie Janeiro, a city famed for its brilliant illumination, a hundred miles out at sea. For Constipation Indigestion, Sick Headache, Bilious ness.
