He was cited three s times for bravery and decorated, but H he says that he is ashamed to wear his ! decorations on the street, because he s does not care to be suspected of hav- tn purchased them, sp The truth of the matter Is that even St before this business In bogus heroes was stanea, a good many Americans harine the funny bone well developed dm not take tneir decorations very se riously. A Medal for Everyone. They say, for example, that when king' Albert and queen Elizabeth, of Belgium, visited the American head au arters In France, thev handed out decorations with a generosity that was hard to appreciate, for some of the men thought a medal was a proof of bravery. Queen Elizabeth is said to have bestowed a Belgian war cross on a lieutenant for the heroic and graceful way in which he took the position of officer of the day during a dress parade. The orderly at Gen. Pershing's headquarters was decorated for the snappy and efficient manner in which he saluted the royal couple It is even said that the cook, or some one else In connection with the offi cers mess, was decorated for making such a successful appeal to their majesties palates. These instances are not cited in dis paragement of the holders of all for eign decorations, for the vast major ity of such military honors were merited and earned. This is especial ly true of awards of American deco rations. The awards of our war crosses and medals were made only after a careful investigation of each individual case, up to tne present time tnere nave been &&w distin guished service crosses awarded; 1206 distinguished eervice medals and 78 medals of honor. Approximately 1C,0(K) foreign decorations have been oesiowea upon Americans. Pershinf Host Decorated. Gen. Pershing, of course, is the most decorated man in the American army an-i. if be tried to wear all his medals at once, be would look almost as splendid as one of the medal trays In a military store. His decorations Include the British grand cross of the Order of the Bath, the Belgian grand cordon of the Or der of Leopold with croix de guerre, French Legion of Honor (grand cross), Greek Order of the Saint Sivfor , Italian grand cross of the Or der of St Maurizlo e Lazzaro, Jap anese Order of the Rising Sun, grand cordon of the Order of Prince Danllo of Montenegro, Oblitch medal of period of but thre months for youths of 19 years as against a much smaller standing army and a training period of six months for youths of 18 years. The important thing is the recogni tion of the need of thus preparing the man power of the country for use in an emergency and of the justice of preparing the young men who may be called into military service for the service they are to render. Hadlcnl Chancres Planned. Each bill contemnlates manv radical changes in the methods of Instructing and training the men in the camps. The congressional bill would require the course of training to "include vocational training in appropriate trades which may be necessary In time of war and useful In time at peace, to such an extent as may be practical." It Is intended, secretary Baker states, that the principles wnicn ne expresses in a recent num ber of a popular macazlne shall tx applied to the proposed regular army of 510.409 men for their training and education. The advocates of both bills insist Don radical chancres in the nolicv wnirn nas prevailed in regard to tne army, me oio laea or armies eoes back to fuedal days when the klnsr summoned nis oarons to onng tneir retainers to fight at his pleasure. It became then the "king's army" and he assumed the power of life or death over his vassals. His word was the law. The war In Eurone vut an end to any such idet and It now lies burlel with the doctrine of divine right of Kings never to rise again. Ttto ATI Onen. In this country the armv became me army ox tne nation; its commander-in-chief was the president but he had no right to use that army for anv purpose whatever without the consent and direction of congress. But simi larly enough In this democracy had snruntr ud an armv run lrfrc-ftlv on the oia ieuuai system, it was a praxes slonal army with manv of the necu- liarltles of that system; but It is about to go. Upon the action of the nresent con gress in great measure will depend the policy of the future. Two ways are open. One Is the pre-war days witn a smaii oia ume regular army and a large body of national guards men more or less well trained. The other way is not easy; but the results are better. The willing acceptonce of the se lective draft act shos the Americans ready response to the principle of fair play; and the same principle will mk acceptance of universal service a natural and easy process for the American nation.
