There were some things he said he wasn't going to do: He was not going to visit George Bernard Shaw in England. He was not taking Mrs. Tunney to Italy for a second honeymoon. He was not bound for Asia with a scientific expedition. He was merely going abroad and he had no plans. a * · The navy is famous for turning out good fighting men and Spike Webb, boxing coach at Annapolis, has ^a record turnout of Midshipmen this winter for the gentle art of fisticuffs.

Thrt latter island's contribution to the forces is Midshipman J. P. Domenech, whose father Is , treasurer ot Porto Bico.
