New Orleans Item: some disquiet has been caused among relatives of the troops of the first seven divis ions, which are now in Germany, by the designation at army head quarters of these divisions as "regu lar army divisions" and the intima tion that these will be the last to return home. "All troops except the regular army units," says headquar ters, "are going home practically in the same order in which they came to France." Except for the numbers, these are not "regular army units." They com prise 25 per cent regular army men and 75 per cent volunteers and na tional army soldiers. The United States has not enough of its regular army in France for two divisions. The men in these divisions were among the first to arrive in France, had the longest service on the battle line and sustained the heaviest cas ualties. Their retention abroad out of their regular turn appears unjust. - W SS----- A Betterment of Conditions. There was held last night in the Council Chamber of the City Hall a meeting of owners of property lo cated in the restricted district. In attendance were members of the Anti-Vide Commission and members of the City Council. W. G. Hudson of the Anti-Vice Commission was called to preside. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss and to devise the ways and the means for the betterment of the district by transforming it from a discreditable to a reputable district. There were offered several suggestions and the necessity and importance of organ izing the property owners into a 5 company was stressed successfully. There' was named J. G. Hirsch, L, D Romagoso and M. T. Rosenblath a committee on permanent organiza 2 tion. There was appointsd a com I mitten on constitution and by-laws 2 comprising J. G. Hirsch. J. H. Bo 8 denheimer and H. S. Lavine, who are to report at the adjourned meet dng to be held In the City Hall on r. Thursday, March 13.

Recent developments in Con gress emphasize the fact that the "Yellow Streak" and "slimy trail' of the kaiser spirit that begun just after the Civil War, when one of the kaiser's "ilk" remarked that "The crows would have to feed those in his wake on the march to the sea", continues to exist. It is this major ity element in Congrets ivho have been controlled by the gamblers and spinners of the world, who have kept the cotton planter poor, who saw to it that one tillion dollars was appropriated to protect the rich wheat grower and nothing done to protect the cotton planter from the gambler and spinner.
