Can’t Get The Right Kind Of Men
Inless Remuneration Is
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
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.

to be felt for a long time to come.

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.
