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.

His decorations Include the British
grand cross of the Order of the Bath,

French Legion of Honor (grand
cross), Greek Order of the Saint
Sivfor , Italian grand cross of the Or

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
