Every family having a soldier or sailor In service is Interested In this bill, as it provides funds for the dependents of a soldier, makes provision for cheap government insi’r- ance to be paid to the beneficiary named by the soldier, and arranges for the payment of a fixed eum of money to the soldier and to his dependents should ho be Injured or maimed while in the country’s service. For example, a private who has a wife and two children would have to allot $15 (half of his pay) for their support. On his doing that, the government will give a sep.nration allowance of ?15 for the wife, $10 for the first child and $7.50 for the second. The soldier’s allotment added to the government separation allo%vance would bring $47.50 regularly each month to his dependents. He cannot be compelled to make allotments to liis mother, father, sister or brother, but if he voluntarily makes such allotment, the government In some cases will make a separation allowance to such dependents. A member of the home service section will be at the Red Cross room, on the fouith floor of the Roberts-Banner building, from 9 to 12 a. m, every day prepared to give information on this bill. The members of the home serx’ice section are Mrs. B. M. Worsham, Mrs. Victor Moore. Mrs. E. C. Berry, Miss Frances Read, M"S. I.i. T Kibler, Miss A. Loufse Dietrich, Miss E. J. Eitrem, \v. s Skinner, Miss Kate Fink, Miss Ethel Brown, Mrs. J. M, Rlch- incnd and Mrs. S. P. Skinner. Every soldier, sailor and nurse, commissioned and enlisted, and of any itge, has the right between now and February 12 to take out life and total disability Insurance up to $10,000 at very low cost with the government ■\vithout medical examination. This right is purely optional. The soldiers and sailors are not compelled to take insurance, but if they desire to exercise their right, they must do so before the 12th of February. The cost ranges from 65 cents monthly at the age of 21, to $1.20 monthly at the age of SI for each $1000 of insurance. Arrangements have been made to telegraph applications for insurance.

The president and secretary of war have evidently realized the defect of tlie existing system and attempted to change it without legislation, but without success." Stef<>nlun T^ackii Anthorlfy. Praising Edward Stettinlus, the war denartment’s new surveyor of purchases, senator Hitchcock said he is without legal authority, like all the other volunteer agencies, and that a legally constituted munitions director was needed. Senator Hitchcock said*Great Britain and France both had been forced to remedy government weakness by a system similar to the war cabinet and suggested that the president, under the bill, would appoint and direct the war cabinet and. if he pleases, could annoint secretaries McAdoo, Baker and Daniels as the members. Shortages, Sickness and Death. The war department’s obsolete methods, the senator said, had brought the expected results, ‘‘confusion of authority, red tane, circumlocution and incapacity.” and he cited evidence given in the military committee’s inquiry of clothing, rifle and equipment shortage and sickness and deaths in camps as the result of overcrowding and lack of clothing. "We found we must depend on over worked and over strained France for machine guns for ground use until nearly the end of this year.” he said, adding that the first American made heavy artillery w’^’ll not be received until July and “not much before 1919 can we expect to use In France American heavy artillery in any great quantity.

We found that, though the medical de- nartment asked for hospital ships last Julj', they have not yet been ordered. Much Work Ably Done. “I do not deny that we also found much that was creditable and satisfactory. The task undertaken w’as a huge one and much of the work has been ably done. Some war department officials most severely criticised have worked desperately hard. This comment covers the secretary himself, This leads me to hold a defective organization responsible for the shortcomings to a greater degree than any individual or group of Individuals.” Two courses were open to the committee as a result of the investigation, said senator Hitchcock, to le- port conditions, “making a few scapegoats and ignoring the greatest evil of defective machinery.” or recoiw mending legislation to give the president “an up to date war making organization.” Cross Kxamlnailon Postponed. Secretary Baker’s cross examination before the senate military com- n->ittee was postponed until Wednesday, Too >fany Shoes Ordered. Senator Williams, of Mississippi, an administration spokesman, asked senator Hitchcock for his authority for a statement that 21,000,000 pairs of shoes have been ordered. Senator Hitchcock said it came from civilian officials in high position. “Then It's mere hearsay after all.” senator Williams replied. The Nebraska senator added he un- By RALPH HERRON*. Tattoo marks exhibited by applicants for enlistment in the navy at the local recrtiiting station are a valuable means of determining the previous nature of the man’s past service In the army or navy many times, even v/hen the man disclaims past service, navy recruiting officers say. Not only will the tattoo marks determine the truth of the man’s statement about his former service, but they may even demonstrate to the Sherlock Holmes of the naval service the exact nature of the service he has been engaged in. When a man comes into the recruiting station and displays a tattooed skin, even though he desclaims previous service, the recruiting officer can, in nine out of ten cases, determine the truth of the man's statement, and further the nature of the past service. “Gob” Likes Design!«. For instance, a man with a “C. A. ,Camp Travis, San Antonio. Texas, 4 .—The government wishes every soldier in Camp Travis, and in fact, every soldier In the National army, the National guard and the regular army to have the protection of government life and disability insurance. Announcement has been made to Camp Travis soldiers that in order that every soldier may secure this protection, the government has agreed that the insurance premium may be paid either by the soldier himself by deduction from his pay each month or it may be paid direct to the bureau of war risk insurance by any one, either members of the soldier’s family or his friends, for him. In this manner many soldiers, through the generosity and Interest of relatives or friends, may be able to take advantage of this offer for life and disability Insurance, when they otherwise would not be able to do so.

In olden times it was believed by sailors that anyone so tattooed would never die by drowning. A cross, with a scroll beneath, bearing the words, •In Memory of Mother.’ is another favorite w’ith the ‘gob.* The eagle and the globe, official emblem of the marine corps. Is often found on ex- narines. The figure eight knot, used to designate exapprentice boys in the navy, is often tattooed on the right wrist of men who made one of the long cruises in their youth. “Men who have ‘Manila. P. I..’ or any foreign port, tattooed on their bodies have almost invariably been found to have had military service. Quick Work \ o ’ it . “In the old days tattooing was a laborious and painful process, for the ink had to be pricked into the skin with a hand needle. Nowadays the youthful ‘gob’ rolls into a tattooing joint on Sands street in Brooklyn, or on Kearney or Pacific streets in ’Frisco, chooses his design, bares his arm and within half an hour is out again, the chosen butterfly, star, or sailor’s head neatly and almost painlessly embossed upon his arm. “The work Is simple, requiring little skill save In the cutting of stencils. These are of celluloid, transparent. with the design grooved into the surface. The *artist' first shaves the hairs from his subject’s arm, then shakes powdered charcoal into the grooves of the stencil. Zinc ointment is rubbed over the shaved spot^ and the stencil clapped upon it. When it is removed, the lines of the design are impressed upon the arm. For the outlines an electric hand machine, with a three needle socket, is used. The needles rise and fall too rapidly for the eye to follow, and. if it is a simple des'.gn. within a few moments the outline is set in. Then a six ^ needle machine is used for thé shad- i ing. This also Is a matter of minutes. Then the surplus ink is wiped off, and the spot rubbed w'ith oint- n.ent to prevent soreness, and the job is finished. “Some of the ‘artists' are interesting characters. In few other occupations is professional jealousy so strong Several of the ‘artists,’ Red Gibbons, one time of 'Frisco, and Pat McKeever, of the same city, in particular, are well known on both Sergt.

When senator Hitchcock said he was advised that a large quantity of meat on a ship had spoiled by a blunder in turning off the refrigeration fdant. Democratic leader Martin asked tho authority for the statement. Senator Hitchcock said it was widely published and never denied. Senator Weeks, Republican of the military committee said the quartermaster general's department had admitted it. Senator W'illiams demanded that senator Hitchcock disclose the names of his informant in all cases and senator Hitchcock declined. W’illlainK renters General Denial. Senator Williams then replied that In accordance w'ith legal practice he “would enter a general denial.” “And I shall leave It to the jury,” rejoined senator Hitchcock. In support of senator Hitchcock's statement on shoes ordered, senator McKellar, another Democratic member of the military committee, cited the report of the quartermaster general that “from March to Dea 31, 1917, orders were given for 21,117,000 pairs “I am not going to delay the senate with all the proof,” said Mr. Hitchcock. ‘*I am merely stating the facts.” NO. 3 WIL l I h AVE MUSIC OF ALL KINDS ON TUESDAY Camp Cody, Deming, N.
