HUGE FLEETS TO CONCENTRATE Washington, D. C-, Aug 2. The Treateet concentration of sea power in the history of the Americas navy w ill result from the Junction of the reorganized Atlantic and Pacific fleets off the Pacific coast next Jan uary under plans now being pre pared. The great naval spectacle probably will be staged In the vicinity of the gulf of Panama. Xaneurers Will Be Unique, The maneuvers will be unique in many respects, chiefly Jn that they sill afford the first actual mobiliza tion of the bulk of the new Americas navy. Before the war the forces were always more or less aeattered and a shortage of several types of vessels, particularly of destroyers, subma rines, light cruisers, aerial forces and fleet auxiliaries, made it impossible to concentrate a woP rounded out fleet although the major portion of the battleship force met each winter at Ooantanamo, Cuba, for target practice and drills. During the war the shortage in most types of small vesels. notably destroyers and submarines, was over come, but the entire fleet was never mobilized, due to the use of practi cally an light craft in the war zone, the detail of cruisers to escort duty and the fact that considerable por Hon of the battleship force was on duty abroad much of the time. The January manuevers will set a new mark in American naval prog ress. For the first time In the his tory of the new navy the battleship fleet will be supported by a reason ably adequate number of ttestroyers and other light craft. Submarines will be available tn abundance, to gether with .sufficient naval aircraft for all tactical purposes and a fully rounded out fleet of auxiliary ves sels. Tennesse Ist Word la Construction. The most modern of dreadnoughts to participate in the manuevers will be the great Tennessee. Tha last word in naval construction, this great floating ofrtress displaces 3Z.0O0 tons, carries IS fourteen inch guns and is propelled by electric turbines. The Tennessee is attached to the Atlantic fleet. A sister ship, the California, probably win not be completed in time to Join admiral Rodman's force before the maneuvers. A comparison of the ships available for next winter's maneuvers with the naval strength available for a similar concentration ten years ago affords some striking contrasts. January 1. mo. the latest battleship In the navy was the New Hampshire, authorized bv congress In 1S04. construction started in 1905 and completed in 1S0&. Some Comparisons. 1 comparison of the New Hamp shire and the Tennessee follows: New Hampshire: Length 450 feet: breadth 70 feet: draft 27 feet;, dis placement 17.700 tons: speed 18 knots: main battery twelve inch nms and eight Inch; secondary battery -IS- three inch: four sob merged torpedo tubes: nine Inch armor- Propelled by triple- expansion steam' engines developing lMHH) l'OTsepower; crew1 150 Including ma Tennessee: 1920: length 800 feet: breadth W feet: draft feet, dis placement 11400 tons: speed (eon tract) 21 knots: main battery 12 fourteen inch guns: secondary battery It five inch guns: two submerged torpedo, tubes; propelled by electric turbines developing M00 horse power; crew 1000 men, including ma rtnes. , . Eighteen Classed As Dreadnought. Eighteen tingle calibre gun ships classed as dreadnoughts will be avail able for the January maneuvers that Vere not completed in 1910. .They have a combined displacement of 446. 000 tons and a combined gun power of 112 fourteen inch guns, 80 twelves. I2 five inch and 28 three Inch- A comparison of total battleship forces available in 1920 with 1910 snows that this year there are 18 dreadnoughts and 19 predread noughts. excluding the Oregon class. Most of the battleships listed as available in 1919 are now considered Ten years ago the navy destroyer force consisted of about 28 vessels. Including 17 torpedo boats, even then pracHcally obsolete. This year ad mirals WBson and Rodman ramand destroyer forces aggregating more than It vessels, with more tfcanioe more In reserve or under construc tion. In Ml. 16 submarines were carried on the active .list of the navy. This year nearly 100 of the snb raersibles are attached to the two fleets, with about 75 more under con struction. Cruiser Growth Small. The cruiser strength of the navy has shown little change in the last t-n years. In 1910 the backbone of the cruiser force was the "big eight armored cruisers, now reduced to six by the loss of the San Diego and the Memphis. No Hght cruisra of Import ance nave been launched in the last ""ons'or the most striking increases in American naval strength to the last 10 years has been In auxiliary vessels. Both the Atlantic and Pacific fleets now have well organized and . omplete "trains" of hospital ships, ..iT-M h.-ats, repair vessels, refrige rating ships, ammunition and fuel .. ,, .n addition to motor patrol ves sels, submarine chasers, minesweep ers and mine layers, converted yachts, submarine and destroyer tenders and troop transports, practically un dreamed of a decade ago.

Its rival win not bit fotmd in the far east. On the right of its entrance stands Cavite, where Dewey sank the Span ish neet. ..... "From the bay the city or maniia seems to liealmost at water level with hazy mountains for a back ground. Before the United States came to the Islands, Manila was a sleepy town, sprawled lazily- beyond the bay and the wharves of the river Pasig. which bisects it. Its streets were quiet and almost deserted at times. Its suburbs shady and pretty, and a general air of manana' per vaded Its atmosphere. Floating Population of ISfiOO.

The traveler will find local color on the south side of. the river In the waiiea city, or Intramuros, one of the finest ex amples of a fortified city of the 17th century, with Its narrow and Spanish looking streets, the houses with barred windows, the quaint corners, and the vistas through open courtyards. There are to be found nips, bungalows of the natives, the quaint old residential palace of the governor, now used for an office building, and the happy. Idle people themselves. In this section the churches Include the Imposing, rela tively new cathedral, the Gothic Santo Domingo, the Jesuit church with Its museum, and the old Au gustlnlan church, completed in 1605, which has withstood the storms and earthquakes of the centuries. "A unique sight in Manila is the Pace cemetery, which at present has fallen Into disuse. It Is composed of two concentric walls about six feet thick, honeycombed with holes. Just large enough for a coffin. In the olden days these were leased for periods of five years. At the end of that time If no one was sufficiently Interested in the body of an inmate to pay his rent for another five years his bones were thrown on a heap at the back of the cemetery, .imagine the horror of an ancestor worshipping Chinese should he behold the queue of one of his progenitors protruding from this Golgotha!

C Bvergbodyjs Danlc j Stanton and Texas Streets Wants Women To Set Example To Men By Removing Their WOMEN should set the example for the men by removing their hats in eievatora me- resi ui uu j (Leap year), according to "Driftwood,- and then, possibly, the men would follow the example, he says. Ha thinks !i is safest for men to keep on their hats and suggests that it certainly is not the desire of any woman to be poked in the eye by the elbow of a man who is In the act of taking off his hat and says if such should occnr, she would probably wish heartily that he had left his hat on. TThis betas Leap year," he con tinues, "let the men suggest that the women remove their hats and get them crushed In the Jam until Oec. 3L after which every man will feel duty bound to reciprocate. This will give the women the experience that will enable them to judge the mat ter, as it Is Indeed weighty the ques tion, not the hat. "Am a matter of fact, since this Is Indeed leap year. If removing the hat proclaim a man to be a model of perfection. It would le advisable for single men to keep their heads covered until XBZW Tiot a Disrespect. A Sensible Business "Woman- says elevators are generally crowded to an extent that a person can hardly raise an arm. let alone remove a hat. and asserts: TThe entrance of women Into the business world is not causing men to lose respect to them; it means merely that they consider them their equal In business. I am sure that all busi ness women are able to understand their actions. A man, when he starts to his of fice Is thinking of business, or some Important deal and not about remov ing his bat when a woman enters an elevator. "We business women who are. -constantly attached to business men. do not consider not removing their hats disrespect to women, as we. too, for get politeness during business hours. Therefore, I am sure sensible busi ness women will agree with me when X say men do not make us unhappy nor mar our days If they do not show us the courtesy of removing their hats. "Both sexes are engrossed with Im portant business at this advanced time of the world and not pettiness. We are shown respect and courtesy in the proper places outside of the business world, and that Is what we want. If a man does not remove his hat while In the course of his busi ness, it Is nor a crime nor disrespect to women." Same A Street Car. William Jonas does ,not think an elevator Is any different from a street car, and' says: "We don't remove our hats in a street car, why should we do. so In an elevator T If Z come into ah elevator and meet a woman that I personally know, I'll Up my hat, as usual, but why take it off? I wouldn't tip my hat to a strange woman anywhere. If I did, she would think I was fresh. Then why should men take their bats off altogether, and have them crushed?- Here Another "Way. "Edl Quet" thinks It is solved this way: "In hotels and department stores. It is proper for a man to remove his hat on entering an elevator, partic ularly If women, or a woman, is also in the elevator; but In office and business buHdings, this is not re quired unless the man knows some woman In the elevator, or has a male acquaintance who is escorting a woman. The wonder Is that any other contention should be made about the matter." Poor SpoTt,w He Says Sergt. G. A. P. Haverford, of Port Bliss, says: "Women go In politics and hazi ness on equal principles frith a man and then are such poor sports or so narrow minded as to expect the courtesy and respect of a man. Let her stay In the home and act and dress as a woman should U she want a man to respect her. Says Keep 'Em On." Madeline Lamse says: I think men show no disrespect when they fail to remove their hats In the elevator. If It Is not considered bad form for them to wear a hat In the street car and other public conveyances, there Is no reason why he shoold doff it when In the elevator. Often elevators are very crowded and people are jammed and It is pot at all pleasant to be scratched In the neck by a straw hat." Xot Necessary. In the larger cities of the east, men do not remove their hats in ele vators and the men of onr eastern cities are just as respectful as our 1 Paso brothers," writes R. S. Murray "H. B- Stevens tried to keep the men from going .wrong in the Mills building by placing a sign in each elevator Instructing them rot to re move their hats, but many men Insist on removing them." What About XIat Flar W. W. G. writes: Tf men are re quired to take off their hats in ele vators, women must be also required to take off their bat and remove the hatpin, which is a real menace to men's eyes and faces. "She covers up her bare back or bare front with her hat. Shakespere says: 'Frailty, thy name Is woman. When to Remove Hats. "Observer" says: "I do not be lieve It is necessary to remove my hat In an elevator. I think a man should remove his hat only under the following conditions: When acknowl edging the salutations of any woman whenever he meets her, on the street, in a street car or In an elevator; when he enters a private office, presided over by a man or woman, church, theater, or at any public "gathering; while carrying on a conversation with a woman on the street, in a street car, elevator or any other place that he chances to meet her under -any and all conditions. EL PASO Hats In Elevators "An elevator Is not in any sense to he compared with a home, church, theater or private office. It is simply a means of public transportation iho same as a street car, passenger train or any other form of puuile convey ance. "A man is not expected to sit In a street car and hold his hat In his hand even though there are women In tne car. It he goes auto riding with women. It Is not considered bad taste or Impolite to keep his bat on. In the last analysis, the whole ques tion simply resolves Itself down to one of precedent, habit, or custom. governed entirely by the locality, state or dty In which one lives." Wants Them "Like Mother." G. M. L. writes that "If women. these days, were more like they were when mother was a girl. think It would be perfectly proper' for men to remove their hats In elevators, but as many women nowadays are trying to deal tn politics and wear hats creased tn the middle. I think' It Is perfectly fair that they should be treated as man."

The Arc tic region, according to a unique theory tentatively advanced by VII htmlmuT Stefaneson, noted explorer, is the original home of the bluegrass that has made Kentucky famous and the bluegrass region of the southern commonwealth may have evolved from seed first cropped from an Ice berg drifting down from the North In the glacial epoch. Mr. Stefaneson. while on a visit to his mother In Winnipeg, deplored the general lgnprance regarding the Far North and said school geographies and text books which gave children false ideas of the region should be re written. "There are 640 species of flowering plants in Arctic" Canada." said Mr. Stefansson. "fend three times as many non-flowering species. The land, that Is popularly supposed to be a frozen desert.
