The chief defect in the national guard system has always been a possible conflict in authority. However, the federalization of the guard is supposed to have remedied this trouble. If it has not done so further legisla tion can be made to cover the subject STATE OF MIND IN NAVAL ACTION of a girl at home, don't believe him, especiall if he is telling it to the girl. One does a bit of thinking on the way home after the battle, and that's when the sailor gets soft and imagina tive. From "Sailors' Sensati ons in Battle," by Lewis R. Freeman, in the February Pop ular Mechanics Magazine. A JOB OF MANY YEARS NATIONAL GUARD EFFI CIENCY fSTROPO President Wilson's talk yesterday to guard critics, it is interesting to observe that many newspapers in various parts of the coun try contend that while the na tional guard regiments of their t?wn states are highly efficient they are the exception rather than the rule as the national uard as a whole is practically worthless. As a matter of truth llie standard of national guard efficiency is about the same throughout the country. The equipment is the same in all r& HE question of what a & man is most likely to think about when under fire or in action, has been much discussed since the battle of Horn Reef. Much evidence has been collected and many theor ies advanced. Obviously, the answer w ill depend very much upon the man, what sort of fire he is under, and especially what his duties are. Generali zing very broadly from the con versations I have had with, and letters I have reaa from, men who went through this greatest of naval battles, I should say that, so far as the British sail or is concerned, the concentra tion of mind in carrying out in action the duties which he had trained so assiduously for dur ing many years of peace, pret ty effectuallly kept his thoughts from wandering far afield. The following extract from the letter of an officer whose ship gave and took some cf the hardest knocks, seems to me to indicate a state of mind i fairly typical of the average British sailor in action. "I suppose I was too busy to think. We iust got on with the work and that kept us stretched. When we eot a Ger- iman cruiser, I said 'Our Bird,' nd I have an idea we passed p. word or two when a shell gave our turret a rap that made our teeth grind: but as for 'happy memories of boy hood days' and 'The Little Gray Home in the West' nothing doing. You've got to keep your mind on one thing, and that isn't 'memories of home,' but your work. If a sailor tells how, with shells ex ploding and men being killed around him, he was thinking ACCORDING to Marine En vi. gineering, a New York " , , - , A puDucaiion, me preseiu great activity in shipbuilding around San Francisco and all along the Pacific coast is no ephemeral boom, but is cer tain to continue for. years to come, on account of the short age of vessels already caused by the great war, and which is increasing rather than dimin ishing despite the feverish ac tivity of all shipyards to keep ur with their orders. It is es timated that at least ten years will be required to restore the equilibrium in shipping. So lone as the war lasts and the shipyards of the belliger ents cannot take up the task, the plants of the neutral coun tries, and narticularly on the Pacific and Atlantic coasts 01 the United States, must bear the whole burden 01 construc tion. Over 1.500.000 tons of ves sels are now under contract in American shipyards. Contracts for 100 or more vessels couia h had at a moment's notice if shiobuilders could find steel and the wavs to launch the shins on. But this is only a drop in the bucket to the shipping the world needs and must have to carry on its business. When the war broke out the gross tonnage of the merchant ma rine of the world was about 50.000.000 tons. Great Britain alone has lost through destruction 2,734,106 tons, or more than 10 per cent. of her total of 21,045,049 tons when the war began. France has lost about one-sixth of her total mercantile tonnage, or 309,023 tons. Germany has lost over 500.000 tons. Others of the allies and neu trals have lost enough during the war to bring the total up to about 5,000,000 Jons. Rut in addition to the Gire:i loss of this enormous amount of tonnage now lying on the bottom of the ocean, marine engineers figure that the de terioration of the nearly 5, 000.000 tons of Teutonic ves sels, now interned runs, from 15 to 20 per cent a year. The third factor to which marine engineers ascribe the tremendous dwindling oi me world's merchant marine is tne commandeering of the largest and best freight and passenger steamers by Great Britain and the other belligerents for war purposes. There is news that the diet of Japan has been dissolved; therefore Japan now nas a li quid diet. t The best way for the N. P. train to be safe from autos is for the engineer to look cira fully before he starts across an intersection.
