Five-Starrers 1 May Hot Carry 5-Star Insignia Washington D. C, Dec. 16 U.R). The new "five-star" admirals and generals probably won't wear five stars after all. ' Neither the Army nor Navy would say anything tonight about the insignia to be worn by the newly-designated "generals of the Army" and "fleet admirals of the United States Navy." But it appeared unlikely that five stars - would be adopted as the insignia. At least two factors entered the situation. One was that Gen. John J. Pershing, by special act of Congress a "General 'of the Armies" and still the highest ranking Army officer in the country, wears only four stars. The other was that Admiral George Dewey, who became a national hero by capturing Manila while ranking only as a commodore in 1898 and subsequently was granted the highest naval rank ever held by an ' American "Admiral of the Navy" wore only four stars. Pershing Wears U. 3. Seal. Pershing made only one change to designate his super-title. In place of the "U. S." customarily worn on an officer's collar, he wears a miniature of the Great Seal of the United States. Dewey designated his extra rank by adding two anchors to his four stars. Final decision on the matter of insignia should be made in a few days. Regardless of insignia, however, the new ranks will accomplish their purpose of putting U. S. Army and Navy leaders on an equal footing with their "opposite numbers" in the British and other Allied services. Provision for the new ranks was contained in legislation signed by President Roosevelt this week. He nominated four generals and three admirals for the ranks and the Senate confirmed them immediately. The final flnlKh to your niokrnp Ik povtdrr. Let it he the w inning: tourh!
