The flash and sound organization lo cated enemy guns on the west irons: | by timing the flash of the gun and the roar as the shell lett tne weapon. Its operations were secret and tnis is the first time that the men have been allowed to even mention to wiiat. or . .. , , sanitation they belonged, the tront lines, 'these souuu oeLccc Miscrophoues were set up all along ing machines were linked to a central station further in the rear. The de Sectors recorded sounds to the huu ! dredth part of a second and witn them the American artillery was enabled to locate hidden German batteries and score direct hits. The organization, just out of a training camp in France was sta tioned in the Toul sector when the Germans started the great drive which was the beginning of their deleac. Members of the unit say the Boche had superiority of the air and that the American and Allied planes and bal loons were unable to go up tolocate many batteries, On information furnished by the flash and sound unit the American artillery laid down its first barrage, a feat that went down in history as one of the most perfectly executed of the war. The flash unit of the organization went with the American infantry all through the Chateau Thierry drive, locating enemy guns by calculating ehe time the sound was heard, the time is was seen and the speed with which sound, light and projectiles travel. The men were cited by the, major general commanding the Am ericans in the sector for their excel lent work. The 74th went all the way from Chateau Thierry to Ponta Mousson. The unit was organized at Fort de St. Meuze in January, 1918. Company B, Twenty-ninth Engineers had been designated for this work, and forty men of the 116th Engineers were taken as a nucleus for the organiza tion. In France the outfit was known as Second Battalion, Twenty-ninth En gineers. They were dubbed the 74th a short time before they left France in order that they might be sent home, some rule conflicting with their departure, it is understood. First Battalion, Twenty-ninth, a map making outfit, still is in France. Men in the 74th think the world of nil of their officers and there is not me of them who would not go .hrough fire and water for them, es pecially Major Theodore Lyman. The major was professor of science at Princeton University before going to the war. Captain C. B. Bazoone, known among his men as the sound ranging Wizard, also is a scientist. He was in England on research work for the Smithsonian Institute when he enter ed the service. The men in the outfit were selected for their mathematical ability, sound judgment and all around good quali fies. The TOO SWIFT FOR NOTED ALMANAC March of History Causes Gotha Publication Considerable Trouble. PUCES 'EX' BEFORE KAISER Some Strange Entries in Latest Edi tion as Result of the War—Can't Keep Up With Affairs in Fin land, Poiand and Ukraine. Paris.—The swift mareh of history which has reduced to waste-paper value most of the existing works of reference about European state affairs has been too rapid for the old Al manach de Gotha. In peace times this compendium of statistical data con cerning princes and potentates and their dominions went to press about the end of October, when its informa tion was supposed to hold good for another year, and it generally did, barring some coup d'etat or other in South America. Now, however, its issue of 1019, which went to the printers in Decem ber, is affected in several important respects®by sudden developments in volving many of the former ruling houses of Europe. Amusing to students of Germany's eastern border policy is the naive pref atory remark that "the editors regret that, after having prepared three new articles on Finland, Poland and the Ukraine, they were obliged to cancel all three, owing to the change in the course of events." Two Important Changes. In other words,- Prince Frederick Charles of Hesse, brother-in-law of the former German emperor, will never seat himself upon the throne of Finland, and there is to be no Prus sian predominance in Poland and the Ukraine. The downfall of the houses of Ho henzollern and Hapshurg has not caused the compilers of the almanach The prefix "ex" is apparently held to he sufficient to define the present status of William II and Charles I, although the former is still credited with his full 53 titles and tiie latter is still styled, among other things, "King of Jerusalem, Prince of the Trentino and Lord of Trieste." much racking of brains, Much tiie same treatment is given to the score of German princes and princelings who abdicated. They ap pear in the almanach as they were— but for the "ex." Democratic infiltration in Germany has set in from the top, instead of from the bottom. For although the ad ministrative branches of the German government are filled with the usual array of excellencies, professors and councilors, yet at tiie head of that government stand the names of Ebert, Scheidemann, Dittman, Lundsberg and Barth. Nobody is supposed to care about their Christian names. The German national colors are still given as black, white and red, and the war flag still blazons the Prussian eagle. This year, "provisional" govern ments abound. There is Poland, de scribed in the aiinanaeh as "an ancient kingdom," Pllsudski. whose "chief" is General Finland, "formerly grand duchy," has no president, but General Mannerheim Is the present "regent." Puzzle About Ukraine. The Ukraine Is described as "a con stitutional monarchy on a republican basis,'' with General Skoropadskl as hetman. A footnote, however, explains that "according to news received De cember 15, 1918, the hetman has ab dicated and the power is in the hands of a directorate consisting of Win nitshenko, Petliura, Schweiz and An drelevakl." Russia, or to give it its modern name, the "Federative Socialistic Re public of Russian Soviets," at whose head Lenine (Vladimir Ouiianoff) asd Trotzky (Leon D. Bronstoin) figure, is in a chaotic state as far as its inter nal administration is concerned. The almanach enumerates the eleven "more or less independent" states into which the empire has fallen, as fol lows; Poland, Lithuania, Baltic states (Conrland, Livonia, Esthonia), Finland, Ukraine, Bessarabia (occu pied by Roumunia), Georgia, northern Caucasus, territory of the Don and territory of Astrakhan, Turkestan and Siberia. Vanished is the pomp and panoply of the sonorous sounding names of the Russian aristocracy that once filled the higher administrative posts in the old empire. The seven members of the "council of commissaries of the people" are immediately followed by the dignitaries of tiie Greek Catholic church. If there are any excellencies or other functionaries or officials in present-day Russia, the almanach does not give them. As for the diplomatic corps at Petro grad, ail the ambassadors and minis ters, except one from Spain, are sig nificantly designated as "abse-it." One curiosity is that Albania shares with San Marino the distinction of having u government Indicated by blanks. 'Twas Dog's Life.

FIGHTING SHIPS WILL FISIT PORTLAND PORTLAND, Oregon.—With the acceptance of an invitation by Rear Admiral Fullam to attend the Vic tory Rose Festival, June 11, 12 and 13, it is assured that Portland's mon ster harbor will be the haven for a good sized fleet of Uncle Sam's fight ing craft while the Festival is under way. Recently, the directors took up the matter of having warships in the har bor while the Festival was being held and the navy department indicated that such request would be fulfilled. Following this, an invitation tended to Admiral Fullam at San Diego where he commands the Pacific division and he accepted this week. This means that not only Admiral Fullam will be a distinguished guest but that he will come with his flag ship and an escort of almost every type of fighting craft on the Pacific coast, including some of the sub-de stroyers which played such a leading part in putting to a quick death the activities of the murderous German submarines in the Great War. Coupled with the announcement that Portland will offer a rare naval pageant is the news that it is ex tremely probable that a race between airplanes, either from Los Angeles or from Mather Field, Sacramento, will terminate here on the was ex opening day of the festival with a series of amazing demonstrations of airplanes in war maneuvers, the first air meet j j I | £f j i Welcome ■Back.

Villa Unbidden Dance Guest. JAUREZ, Mex., March 28.—Fran cisco Villa was the unbidden guest at a Mexican dance held at Rancho San Diego, south of the border, during his recent foray into the border country. The band was playing a typical Mexican waltz, the rancheros and their senoritas were swaying in time to the music. There was a clatter of silver spurs as a high hat ted figure loomed in the doorway. Recognizing the much-feared "Pan cho" the dancers fled from the room. They were ordered back by Villa who joined in the dancing with his staff and continued enjoying the pastime until breakfast. Then he and his "Golden Ones" rode away without harming anyone. Read The Daily Star-Mir ror Want Ads.
