NAVY Can’t Get The Right Kind Of Men Inless Remuneration Is Knfiirient Increases in the pay of officers and enlisted men in the Navy, or at least some entertainment allowances for of ficers, are absolute necessary if the American Navy is to keep the sort of men it has attracted in the past, in the opinion of Rear Admiral William ] S. Sims, a witness a day or two ago before the House Naval Committee on legislation in Congress proposing such • increases. s Admiral Sims gave the committee : a half dozen statements from officers stationed at the Naval War College at • Newport, R. 1., of which he is now president, showing in some cases that living in style none too good, those officers each year are coming out just a few dollars behind or a few dollars ahead of their Navy pay. He pointed out that the British Navy gives much higher pay to officers in the higher ranks than does the American Navy, and, in addition, provides large funds for official and quasi-official enter laiuing, such as falls to the lot of an officer. Admiral Sims said it is es sential to the prestige of the Ameri can Navy that officers commanding ships in foreign ports entertain where they have been entertained, and that except in unusual cases under present conditions such entertainments are paid for by the commanding officer of a ship. He opposed putting a general fund in the hands of the Secretary of the Navy to be disbursed for entertain ing when he specifically approved a flat pay increase, but did not mention the figure. “If you want to reduce the Navy so that certain kind of men will be attracted to it you can get that kind of men,” said Admiral Sims, “hut if you want to keep up the standard we established during the war and con tinue to have the respect of the world, as we have had, you want to get the right kind of men and you have got to pay the money to get them. That’s all there is to it.” “A naval officer has got to live on a certain plane or get out,” said Ad miral Sims. “His own self-respect would make him do that.” Chairman Butler, of the committee, said he agreed* with the Admiral in many particulars. “You always do agree with me, but you neve? do anything about it,” re torted the admiral with a smile. He opposed a general fund in the hands of the Secretary, he said, be cause it would not be practical, par ticularly where ships are in foreign service. OVERINDULGENCE CAUSES SUGAR SHORTAGE Heavily increased use of sugar In candy, soft drinks, ice-cream and other luxuries in the United States during the first nine months of 1919, it was announced in New York Friday by the United States Sugar Equalization Board, means that such over-indul gence in sweets “must now be cur tailed in some sections of the east for the next three months.” George A. Zabriskie, president of the board, in a statement to the press, de clared that although the talk bf “shortage” persists, it was a fact that from last January to September, in clusive, 500,000 tons or 18 per cent, more sugar had been delivered to American consumers than for the same period of 1918. The normal increase in consumption for the period named, he said, would have been 4 per cent. The West should secure immediate relief from the harvesting of an aver age beet crop, said the statement, which will he in full swing within a week. The Louisiana supply of 100,- 000 tons, available after November 1, while disappointing, will serve to sup ply the South until the new West In dian crop is ready next January. The East is dependent, however, it was said, on the old Cuban supply, and ’conservation,” therefore, would have to be practcied for a time in this sec tion of the country. To meet the con dition in the East, Frank C. Lowry, it was announced, will supervise and di rect the distribution of all sugar by the Eastern refineries. After October 15 and tmtil January 1, it was said, all territory west of Pittsburgh and Buffalo and north of the Ohio river will have to depend, upon the sugar beet producers. Deliv eries of sugar to the trade in the East, it was said, during October, November aid December, would approximate hose made in October, 1918. Con siderably more beet sugar will be mar keted this year than last. Big Sale Of Farm Implements A big sale of valuable personal property is under way in the upper section of the county today.

HANDSMIG ON j M OYSTER BEOS f Old Practice Being Revived In I Rivers Ajruj Bays—Violators ' To' Bv Dealt With ? i , * II IT IS TO LAW 11 7^~~ ): The illegal practice of handscrap -1 ing has teen broken out with the open i ing of the oyster season. This prac tice consists pi using a small oyster f ihand scrape frvm a powerboat, which : Is licensed to -c/.tch oysters with tongs ! only, or sailing ves jsel, and Is Jorbidden by law under [ l heavy penaltK,si ! In previoud: years the Conservation 1 Commission fciii* suppressed this prac > tice in the Choptank River and 1 Poplar iJstrict, but this year 1 i handscraping 'pm been reported to the ’! commission frorj several other points, • mainly in the’ ; ijpper Choptank River, • Manokin Rive>\ Somerset county, |and • in the Potomac River to St. Georges i Island, St. Marys county. Prompt • measures have : been taken to deal with ■ all violations extra police boats : have been to each of the three 1 places named.!-} j Recent repeat;? from Somerset and St. Marys coujhiies indicate that the ■ practice has been broken up there, r but in the upper*Choptank River, near I Cambridge, hindscrappers have con tinued to defy! the law. It has been difficult, howeve?, to catch the offend ers because they are generally pro -1 vided with swiff motorboats as soon as the police befat comes in sight. As a however, of redoubled ‘ efforts by tbe*j commission arrests of handscrapers been made this • week in the thbptank River—in the 1 first case a fiqo of $l5O and costs was imposed and the other case the of ■ fender was heljj for action of the 1 Grand Jury. -boat in the meantime has teen seizeipand condemned as pro -1 vided by termined to l|dl!)w up all reports of 1 this illegal to use its best efforts to 6i *<k up handscraping wherever it p£? irs. Years ago dredgers who dep redated upoi le tongers’ grounds were called pirates.” Each locality felt its rights were be ing intruded upon by men who resort ed to means’ of taking oysters other ihan those allowfed in the law for the locality in question. In a sense thfe hand-scraper is the ‘oyster pirate” Jof today. The law abiding oystermjtn pays his license money for a license to either tong, scrape or dredge on certain areas. The pays no license, hand scraping being jn. violation of any law for catching oysters, and it is not among the lis' of those occupations for which a license can be issued. The lawful tonger „who pays a license fee la at a great disadvantage over the hand-scraper who employs illegal tools and catches *sjerhaps two or threee times as many oysters as the licensed tonger can in 'ia given time. There fore, in the interests of the great body of lawabiding it is neces sary to enforcer tbe law against haqd scraping rigidly, the Commission has issued orders to all per sons in its employ to enforce the law against this the law-abldiir? <)ystermen will co operate with tlsp Commission and give information retfauling any violations coming to thet* notice.

WILL DEMOBILIZE; ITS USEFULNESS REMAINS For some days there has been a rumor that the War Camp Community i Service would be demobilized on Nov ember first. The work during the period of the war among the soldiers, sailors, marines, aviators, has been far-reaching, and its effect cannot fa.il to be felt for a long time to come.

THE COMMON PEOPLE** Taking for his text. Mark 12 chap ter and 37th verse, last clause of the i verse: "And the common people heard him gladly,” the Rev. Silas E. Persons. D. D.. pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, preached a forceful sermon last evening at his church to a small but appreciative congregation. Many were probably prevented front attending service on account of unfavorable weather. Dr. Persons defined the “Common People” to whom the majority belong. He said there are few geniuses, and there is but a thin partition between genius and insanity. The world is made up largely of common people, and it was to the common people that Christ preached. They understood Him best. He preached on the grain of mustard seed growing into a tree in the branches of which the birds lodged. The common people under stood such a sermon as they did the sermon on the leaven, which the wo men put in lump measure of meal and which leavened the whole three. Such sermons as Christ preached to the common people they understood, and “heard Hint gladly.” Jn closing the preacher said “Chris tianity makes princes of common peo ple; heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ." The sermon was an un usual one and loft a deep impression on the hearers.
