The reorganiza tion of the whole French army on a peace footing is at present being con templated by Minister of "War Bar thou. He is also elaborating a scheme whereby the peace army could rapidly be transformed in the time of war. Important modifications are to be made. There will be a marked diminu tion of infantry and cavalry units and an increase in the air force. Less colonial troops are to be stationed in Franco, though in time of war they will be brought over. Certain elements from North Africa, how ever, will continue to receive in struction in France. The artillery strength of the French army Is also to be ii reased considerably. According to the new project thre will bo 139 regiments of infantry in stead of 173 as on the first of Jan uary, 1912, sixty-seven regiments cr cavalry instead of eighty-nine, 101 artillery regiments instead of seventy-five, fifteen regiments or engin eers instead of seven, sixty air ob servation squadrons instead of ten, 140 fighting esquadrilles as against ten, and twenty-six airships or cap tive ballon companies instead of four. These fibres represent the follow ing number of men: Tnfantry 2 67.48 0 Cavalry 50,000 Artillery 104.459 Engineers 31.775 Air Serv Ice 3 2 , 0 5 1 Medical Supply and Transports 40.22?. To these numbers must be added a. colonial army of 40.000, and 10, 000 regular army men. The bill also calls for the creation of special instruction schools. The army re serve is made up of classes liberated once their term of military service is completed, and these are not included in the above figures. Question On Boundary Guatemala, June 15. Just at the time that the union of four of tht- Central American republics is being announced by its supporters as fact, a question of the boundary be tween Honduras and Guatemala has come to the front. It is reported here that armed forces from Hon duras have occupied the disputed ter ritory. Honduras lays claim to a strip of territory to the south and east ol the Motagua river which has been in the possession of Guatemala, if not slnco time immemorial., at least since Guatemala became independent. It consists for the most part of a trop ical wilderness covered with inter minable forests. A range of moun tains forms the southern boundary of the wilderness. "With the building of the railroad from Puerto Barrios to Guatemala City, and the develop ment of banana plantations along its route and on the Motagua river, set tlements have naturally sprung up in the wilderness, and purchases of the vacant lands have followed. Now Honduras bases its claims to this territory on some old Spanish maps and surveys said to have exist ed when the whole of Central Amer ica was known as the Kingdom of Guatemala and was governed by a viceroy at the old city of Guatemala. Sensational reports have been pub lished in two of the daily newspap ers here recently concerning this claim of Honduras in which insin uations are made that representatives of Guatemala actually sold the in terests of Guatemala to Honduran ians. To Organize Pan-Pacific Press Meet Columbia, Mo., June 15. Plans for the organization of a Pan-Pacific Press Conference which would meet yearly and have as its object the bet terment of relations between coun tries bordering on the Pacific Ocean were discussed here during Journal ism Week at the University of Mis souri, May 23 to 27, by Dean Walter Williams of tho School of Journal ism of the University of Missouri and representative American journal ists. The conference, it is planned, will be organized during the meeting of the World Press Congress at Hono lulu next October. One day of the congress has been set aside for dis cussion of the organization of the conference. Better relations between the Unit ed States and Japan and between other Pacific countries may be brought about it is hoped by better co-operation between the newspap ers and journals of these countries. Definite plans for the Pan-Pacific Press Conference are not yet ready to be made public but it was an nounced that it was planned to have the conference meet yearlv should its organization be effected. At these conferences the situation in the different countries represented in the conference would be discussed as well as their relations with other countries of the world and an effort made to adopt an editorial and news policy which would tend toward a better feeling'etween the peoples of these countries.

Shell-Shocked To Be Taught Carpentry Courses in carpentry have been decided on by the Knights of Colum bus reconstruction committee as the most logical livelihood instruction for .shell-shceked soldiers. At St. Eliza beth's Hospital, Washington. D. C, the K. of C. have been experimenting with U. S. government approval and lied Cross co-operation, with a mod ern, machine equipped toy-factory. More than five hundred men have re ceived training as toy-makers. "The demand for this sort of labor is not large enough to accomodate discharged men with steady employ ment," Supreme Secretary William J. McGinley announced, "so it is our endeavor now to train the men in gen eral carpentry after consultation with union heads of the trade inter ested in the men's welfare. "The shell-shocked maa takes more readily to wood work than to any other skilled employment. It pro vides him with an opportunity to create, which occupies his mind :ind that is one of the most desirable features of training for shell-shocked, men." The K. of C. carpentry shop at St. Elizabeth's -has been inspected oh several occasions by government medi al! authorities and trade leaders, who have pronounced it one of the best equipped and directed places of its kind in the country. James Kelly, w inner of the D. S. C. for his gallantry in action with the Marines in Belleau Wood, is chief instructor for the Knights in the shop. The course de signed commences with simple wood work and progresses to cabinet-mak-Imr. More than 5,000 men are in St. Elizabeth's eligible for the free K-C training.

The man who rose from a puddler in the steel mills of Pittsburgh to the dignity of of Cabinet officer laughingly said that the report that he was in the magical class was "greatly exagger ated." He then explained how the report that he was a millionaire got abroad. It appears that long before he ever dreamed of sitting around the Cabin et table of the President of the Unit ed States he had occasion as director general of the Loyal Order of Moose to apply to a Pittsburgh banker for the loan of $1,000,000 to finanee cer tain activities of that organization. The banker, taking the application under consideration, called in some of his associates for advice. "Who i3 this man Davis?" he ask ed. "Why, he is the general organizer of the Moose and every one of its 600,000 members pays Mm $2 a year," one of the bankers replied. He got the loan all right, and that is how the story originated that he was a millionaire. "It is true that every member of - wiver?"''""1' ... ... . 1 S. TELLEP.

It is one of his creeds that "every child is entitled to at least a high school education and a trade." In Mooseheart, Ind., the order now maintains a school where orphan children numbering 1,200 are being educated and trained to make useful citizens. The school is one of the hobbies of the Iabor Secretary and he is always planning to increase its scope and effectiveness. "Jim" Davis, as the new Secretary of Labor is affectionately called, is a "jiner." He is a member of eight een fraternal and other organiza tions, but the Loyal Order of Moose claims most of his attention. He joined that order in 1906, becoming its 247th member. Since 1907 he has been its dlreotor-general and under his administration it no-w numbers over 600,000 members.
