Making War Shorter Less Bloody It took old Nathan I«'on - cst, t)ie colorful genius of the Confederate cavalry, to sum up the essence of the science of strategy in sine tin- Bvanimatjeal line— "Git tliar fust with the most men." Acting on his iiuixim, Forrest WHS a terror to federal generals throughout the war. And ever since then, military men have agreed that liis slogan was all of the law and most of (he prophets, as far as the art of making war is concerned. . It is interesting, therefore, to see that the United States army in spendt ing a good deal of money to make sure that in any future \yar it will he able to do what General Forrest advised. A fc\v days ago the army's now "strpamlined" infantry division completed important test maneuvers in Texas. This, division is a far cry from the cumbersome foot-slogging divisions of World War days, it has some ]'!,000 men, against the \Vorld Wtiv strength of 22,000. v Instead of the World War division's complement of 6700 horses and mules, it has slightly more than 1500 automobiles. To see what it could do, this motor- i^ed division pretended that an invading ayv/iy was established 300 miles away, ti&v Mineral Wells, Tex. The division hopped in its trucks, got to the scene of the "war" in one day, - spent the next day in out-maneuvcr- ii)g and ;lafeating its-'uinViqloraed opponent, and got back to its base on 1 the third day— having completed H stunt utterly beyond the possibilities for any pro-gasoline age army. You may be sure that this demonstration will be prayerfully studied by army authorities, both here and abroad. It is a broad hint that the old attributes. of fluidity and quick movement may be restored to armies — things which were conspicuous by their absence in the World War. And this has a meaning for civilians as well as for soldiers. For there is a chance that motorized armies will maka future wars a liltle less frightful and destructive, simply liy making them shorter and using fewer men to fight them. The World War was colossally and •; unbelievably destructive of life and treasure jargdy because armies moved at a snail's pace. No general could hope to "git thar fust with the hiost OUT OUR WAY BLYTHEV1LLE, (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 'ffi, men" because it took u week to put his army in motion, and because numbers of both sides were almost unlimited, i Armies that depend on tjtiiek movement and meelmni/cd hitting power rather than on slow-moving numbers should change that sort of tiling. The war of attrition is the most costly and terrible of all wars, as we all have tragic reason to know. If military science is at last finding a way to restore the lost art of strategy, the dreadful record of the World War may never be repeated. Aid l'\)i' Wayward Youth Slate's Attorney Thomas J. Courtney of Chicago cut loose with an interesting idea recently when he suggested I hat the nation establish special ('CO camps to restore youthful criminals to good citizenship. Jlr. G-ominey's point is that the CCC camps, by the discipline, guod training, outdoor activity and moralc- buildiiitf routine which they oll'cr, have already done a tremendous amount of good among city youngsters who might otherwise have slipped down into careers of crime. Kxtcnd tho idea, he suggests, to take in delinquent youngsters, for whom now the h)w usually niiikcu no provision at all uxeo|)t imprisonment with hardened adult criminals. l( is his belief that the annual crime bill wou|d be cut in hall'. The idea is certainly worth a good deal iif study. Obviously, such camps as hi! suggests would .have to be clix- tincl from tiie ordinary CCC camps, whose cnrollce.s arc .decent, law-abiding youngsters; but a special group might well be set up, to try to reclaim the lads who otherwise will be the holdup men and gangsters of tomor- ,1'OW. Charily For Dogs ]Jy way of demonstrating that people who have more lime and money on their hands than they know what to do with can make fairly complete spectacles of themselves, divers 'idle members of New York "society" threw a cocktail party for their dogs the other day. Seme 150 priy.c pooches gathered in a ritx.y New York restaurant, attended by their owners, and indulged in an afternoon of cocktail-sipping and can- ape-munching. The whole thing was a "benefit," of course; it was solemnly announced, afterward, that no less than S300 had been raised for an eleemosynary institution known as the Bidc-a-Wee Hume for friendless and dejected dogs. So it was all a worthy cause, and doubtless deserving of our cheers; but somehow I he cheers arc a trillc hard to produce. These effervescent flower- ings of a class which has abundant money and abundant leisure, but which has no faintest idea how Io4is« either, are a little out of place in a country as besot with serious problems a.s our own.

That was 18 months prior to the day he greeted M. M. Lane at Blanco Canyon. He should have been trained and experienced enough to weather any surprise with poise, but this one shook him. Mary Melissa noted his tan, and his black eyes, and his rather broad shoulders, even as she awaited his answer there before the stage station. She hnd asked him, a stranger, where to find a hotel. The stranger had acted sfrangely indeed. His mouth had dropped open, and he had fumbled around like a gawky adolescent. Then he had rather rudely asked her name, and -heard it. "Pardon me," he stumbled along now. "You—you're Lane? Lane. Well, I—""he suddenly grinned—"I was stampeded that time, Miss Lane. I surely wasn't expecting you. I mean, a girl. You see, I—well, the fact is I'm Barry. I'm—I'm glad to see you. Can't we—" "Oh!" Mary Melissa was staring at him in quick alarm. This young westerner couldn't be "Robert Wilson Barry, Ph.D.". The few seconds interval gave Bob lime to note that she was lovely. But that thought only irritated him a trifle more. He hadn't wanted a lovely partner; he )iad advertised for u moneyed one, not o young and dimpled one. * a * S HE girl and the young scientist had much talking to do. Bob ggested, with a friendly smile, that they go to the "leading hotel," as her letter had said; It consisted of two rooms in the rear of Ma Pelphry's house which she occasionally rented to travelers. Prab- ably Ma would let them sit in 'hci parlor and talk. He picked up Miss Lane's two big suitcases, and she carried a smaller bag. The walk would be 300 yards or so.

Sometimes (lie sweat has a disagreeable odor. Thai is called bro- modrosls. Those conditions HIT really difficult lo treat. There are proolc who believe that If the pcr- .spirfttio:) tastes salty, it is. a sign of sickness. Tills Is an error because all perspiration is likely to be slightly salty. Actually, perspiration is just to stop excessive perspiration under the arms usually depend on astringents containing various preparations oi aluminum, in some coses tile use of the X-ray will Decrease the activity of Die svcal glands. Here, however, there is the danger of producing excessive dryncss. No such treatment should be undertaken except by one especially trained. In cxcuslvc sweating of the feet, the condition may be largely kept under control by the use of various dusting powders in the shoes. The same solutions that arc used to prevent sweating iincier the arms arc also useful en the teet. Practically everyone has some characteristic odor. In many instances odifcrous perspiration is began. "I feel that I should—" "Oh : took!" Mary Melissa stopped and pointed. A man had unhitched a horse snd mounted it, there in front of a store. The horse, evidently, some- whal. new to the saddle, at once set in to be rid of the mm. it bucked right up across the board porch ol the store, smashing a chair and breaking a glass window. "Ec-c-e-e-c-p!" the animal screamed hi anger, pitching like the wild beast it was. Miss Lane and Bob, not SO feet away, ducked toward a tree for safelf. Dust enveloped them. "Goodness!" exclaimed Mary Melissa. "He handled that horse well. I expected him to be thrown ana maybe bsdly hurt. >'.')!•> is he?" "I dsr-.'t kr.o-.v," said Bob Barry. "Stranger to me. 1 don't get in to Blanco Canyon much. Some cow- pokc." tyTA PELPHRY took Mary Me"~ lissa into her private quarters and "visited" with her, in the name of hospitality. Mu never ]c-i such an opportunity pass. The interval gave both Bob and the girl time to collect their thoughls. "I'm sorry this thing Is ail mixed up, Miss Lane," Bob began when she rejoined him. "But if—if you will pardon me for suggesting it, there may still be a way out. I mean, so both of us can be good sports about it all. And I think that's what you'd want." They smiled at each other. "Now my idea is this, Miss Lane: Since there are certain very definite conventions, as both of us will realize, what would you say to a chape/on?" Mary Melissa nodded, and waited expectantly. "My thought," Bob resumed, "is to hire old Hades Jones. Then you would be—" "Who? What's his name?" "Zachary Jones! But he's railed Hades, because he's hell on Indians. Hates 'em.

The old fellow grinned in delight. He hadn't, ;is a matter of fact, been nny too prosperous of Jate. He took a fancy to Mary fcelissa right off. "Better buy yoreself some good tough britches," he warned her. "Dresses won't fit in, whar we're goin'." "Would a riding habit do, Mr. Jones?" she usked. "Call me Hades-, like evcr'body else. Don't core nothin' -'bout yore habits, long as they're respectable. But you'll need pants." Bob Barry grinned. Things were beginning fo \vyrk out, hr fell. Oh) Hades was wise from half a century in the mountains. Bob checked over his plans. He lad hired an Indian cook, to be net later. Now he'd need a strong man, lo help with the building and digging. He approached Hades about this, and the old man gave it thought. "1 kin git this feller Holliman, likely. Strong's u bear. Out'of work, I hear. New man, from over Mosaics way. Don't talk none, hardly, but that don't matter none." "Go hire him," said Barry. "What you say his name if?" "Name ot Holliman. I'll hunt him up." • • It was nearly suppevlime when Hades Jones returned' with this third man. The two approached Ma Pelphry's in the dusk of sun?et Ever, in twilight Hoiliman appeared big, but he sat on his horse with the easy grace characteristic of cowboys. Mary Melissa noted them coming and called to business partner. The two mounted and came onto the poi "Not until til en aiu 5uu unu Uic girl recognize Hoiliman as the man who had ridden the bucking bronco. ! Oh!" Mary Melissa spoke admiringly. "We saw you riding. Did he—is the horse all right now?" "All right," said Holliman. . •'. • The man obviously was surprised, and a little surly, at the discovery that a woman was to be in the party. But he said nothing to evoke criticism of his attitude. Bob Barry told' himself, when he went to bed that night, that lie had irvnagsd lo corn:! a strange coi- lectipu of people in one short day.
