In this connection, the secretary of
ar is bfip.jr blamed hp congress for
the deaiv :n adopting a permanent
ir i'itar pol'cy. Attention is being
called to the fact that no recommen
dation for a permanent policy have
come from the department, and that
ur.offn ial statements have been made
that the department would not be
ready to make its recommendations
until th treaty of peace was ratified.

For 1'nlvemnl Training.
TFhen he was abroad, chairman
Julius Kahn, of the house committee
on military affairs, on a nnmber of
occasions announced that conditions
ir Europe were such as to make it of
vital importance for the Cmted States
to adopt a military policv based upon
ur.: nril training. Chairman Wads
worth, who also made an extended
trip through Europe, took a similar
view, and both of the chairmen are
supported by the advocate? of prepar
edness Their support is not con
fine 1 to the Republican side of the
h'lusp and senate.
' T :m not a pacifist." said chair
man Kahn, "and neither are the ma
3ont of the members of the house
cmrrm'ttee on military affairs. We
simplv want an accounting from the
war department as to the expendi
tures of army appropriations. During
the war we have appropriated in lump
sums with scarcely asking- any ques
tions as to what it was to be expended
for In fact millions have been ex
pended for which the war department
has given no account to congress.
Ken red Demobilisation
"The autnorities of the war depart
ment were never able to giTe any sat
isfactory explanation as to why the
axm should be maintained at a
strength of 500.000. The members of
the ho us1 became convinced that if
the war department was given appro
priation for 500,000 men. that de
mobilization would be delayed. The
soldiers wanted to come home and tbe
people demanded that the army de
mobilize at the earliest possible date.
T believe that If the war depart
ment wanted to retain a sufficient
corps of emergency officers in the
service, to complete the demobiliza
t.on. it could find funds from the ap
propriations that have been made to
pav them. I doubt whether the sweep
ing reductions that have been author
ized by the department Is necessary.
All that congress was seeking aside
from a reduction from all unneces
sary expenses was the early demob
ilization of the army. I am delight
ed to see that the war department has
awakened to this fact.
'With early demobilization pro-
of maintenance in 1915 yleds an lm-
pressive total. Most of this cost will
be expended in Pacific states.
Tided for, the war department should
turn its attention to plans for a
permanent military policy. Even now
these plans should be subrolted to
congress so that the members would
have time to study them. Nothing
of official n4t u re has come from the
department to Indicate its attitude on
a question of military training."

Broadside of Modern War
ship Four Times Greater
Than Old Oregon's.
San Francisco, Call.. Aug. 14. Ad
vancement of naval armament from
Spanish-American war days to pres
ent Is shown in the weight of a broad
side fired from the old battleship Or
egon, the largest at the time of the
Spanish -American war. and frxn ves
sels of tbe Pennsylvania type of the
new Pacific fleets.
The Oregon ouId fne a broadside
of steel projectiles weighing 5660
pounds. A broadside from the Penn
sylvania type with Its 14 inch guns
would weigh 17.500 pounds.
Future American dreadnaughts and
battle cruisers are to mount 16 inch
guns. Bach projectile will weigh 2100
pounds, compared with the 14 inch
shells of the Pennsylvania. The
broadside from the future battleships
will weigh a total of 25,290 pounds,
more than four times the size of an
Oregon broadside.
The new ships will be the heaviest
armed ships In the world. The 16 in h
guns were developed during 1918 and
proved satisfactory in every respect
The largest guns on the Atlantic
fleet in its cruise of 1907-1908 aroun 1
the world was 12 inch. The greatest
number of these on any single ship
was four, against the batteries of 12
14 inch guns on the more power, ul
dreadnaughts of admiral Hugh Rod
man's new Pacific fleet. The 12 Inch
gun had a maximum effective ranpe
or lw.tMW yarns, against me
yard Rodman guns. The fleet of ten
years ago, naval officers say, would
be helpless against even a small part
of the Pacific fleet. The Atlantic
fleet when it made Its famous trip
was consjpered the greatest fleet ever
brought together.
Admiral Robley D. Evans command
ed the Atlantic fleet until It reached
San Francisco. All his vessels burned
coal, as did the Oregon of Spanish
American war days. Admiral Rod
man's flagship, the New Mexico, is
electrically propelled and most of his
vessels are oil burners; thus mate

Berlin. Germany, Aug. 9. Eastern
Germany will remain culet despite
the fact that some parts of it are in
cluded within the borders of Poland
by the peace treaty, wires the Thorn
correspondent of the Oeutsch Zeitung.
"It is." he adds, "the painful result
of observations made on the spot."
He declares that the government, con
trary to its promises, has tgnomin
ously delivered up parts of the east-
era provinces an.d that Prussia has
failed to come to the aid of her crown
The correspondent states tnat the
natives and the troops had deter
mined to defend their hearths and
homes to the very last, but the gov.
ernment's change of front now put
an end to those patriotic aspirations.
He predicts a grave menace to the
country as a result of the dissolution
of troop units wmcn nave Dee a a ecu

THE "university in khaki," now be- j

other posts in the 1 Paso military
district, is rapidly becoming one of
the largest educational institutions in
the entire United States.
While the "university" is but a few
months old yet approximately 5000
students are enroled and a dozen or
more subjects ranging from the ele
mentary grades to high school sub
jects and technical vocations are being
studied. The classes are also under j
the direction of some of the most ef
ficient school men in the country

Such is the beginning of vocational
education as well as elementary edu

the regular army of today has
progressed just as much as other
American institutions and is still
making progress toward moderniza

ing Is to give the young man who vol
unteers to serve his country an op
portunity to learn a trade or secure
the elements of an education while
wearing the uniform or his country.

The best thins to use is Mulslfled

Simply moisten the hair with water
and rub it in. about a teaspoonful is
all that is required. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather,
cleanses thoroughly, and rinses out
easily. The hair dries uuickly and
