By Associated Press. vVASHINGTON, June 17.--No great- r care' and secrecy could attend the of royal "Jewels than is ob- l in shipping American troops to j Â·jTi France. To safeguard bis boys, Uncle I | Sam takes every possible precaution, ' fp-trom the time they embarfc until the p." transport has reached its destination. hKHe leaves no loophole for the ma- |-^;"cbliÂ»tions of enemy agents. An- : :Â£ :i tujuncement of General March that fyfSOOJMO have been sent across testifies Â£'-to the Â·ffldency of the system. Â£Â·?:" Usually, as a result of this etebo- .t'-.-rate~ protecUre system, the trip trom f'"An Atlantic Port" to the French or iSlEogllsB port, as the case may be, is !?ijaiM|irkably .uneven ttnl. All elements Sof dinger have been to carefully an- vcacSpÂ«tÂ«J tbÂ« the risk is reduced to S'ttie knrtet minimum. . . |-:'.': tJnUl the troope and civilian passen- fegsis iBve readied the pier they do not toenr the nÂ«me of their ship.

Those who t^iniMNVe to-do- so-are subjected to close ffi-'scniitaT, and their credentials and (t-MociEftO acre thoroughly examined. ;'" Embarkation often begins several S~ l*f before the transport sails. All good-is-3 hwe been said before the K: troop* start for the ship. No reJa-. jf tire or friend may aecompaiiy ttem F to the/pier. This rale applies to the as veil aa to the men. .Once aboard, there they remain, no Chicago Vessels ot tbe American nary ot all Kinds are scouring tbe sea tor Hie German submarines that are raiding along the Atlantic coast. Some of tile laryer' vessels carry observation balloons like the one here seen ascending from the battleship Utah. Prom these balloons the U-boats can be-seen-when submerged. BED SATJOSAL LEAGUE.

This pririlege gives many a chance J to. get off neglected letters and post*, cards, although these, as a matter ot 7 of precaution, are. not put into the j mails until the ship has passed through the submarine zone. ' The troops also take advantage of an arrangement devised by the gov- Â·; eminent for the sending of "sale ar: rival" messages. Telegrams or post'" cards advising family and friends that the writer has made the trip in safety may be prepared in advance, and left " la charge of the authorities at the port of sailing. As soon as iwrd is received by cable of tte ship's arrival Â· cm the other side, the telegrams and cards are released to. O\t vires and malli.
