Ignorance of “open warfare” tactics,
lack of training in scout and Indian
methods of fighting, for which Ameri-
can soldiers were supposed to be fa-
mous, resulted in the death of 50 per
cent. of the American soldiers killed
in the great war. This announcement
is credited to Major-General George
H. Harriers, at a banquet recently in
the west. Harriers is at present com-
mander in chief of the Military Order
of the world war.
General Harriers hunted up infor-
mation from officers of all the allied
nations taking part in the war. He
quoted one case where a regiment in
the Argonne which received 400 re-
placements to fill the ranks to war
strength of about 3,700. This was at
9 o’clock the night before an advance
was to be made. From then until day-
light the time was taken assigning the
half-taked newcomers to rifles, ma-
chine gun and mopping-up units. With
the morning came the advance. After
two days of hard fighting it was found
that 81 per cent. of the regiment’s
killed and wounded were of the 400
replacements—which was a needless
waste of human lives.
The French soldiers were aghast at
the American casualty list. The Brit-
ish commented quietly and regretful-
ly. General Harriers stated that many
enemy officers praised the energy and
aggressiveness of the American attack
but all asked: “Where was the indi-
vidual technique? Great numbers of
your soldiers perished because their
unbridled spirit took them into situa-
tions where they could only be defeat-
ed. Mass formation—group attacks—
in the face of machine gun fire could
not possibly succeed.” Not only in the
enlisted personnel were the huge cas-
ualties but also many capable officers
“went west” while trying to correct
the errors of the untried who were
facing the enemy for the first time.
Untrained officers went the same way
because they had little more than the
book-learning. With the American
army there was fine spirit in abun-
dance, but courage could not substi-
tute for severe and prolonged instruc-
tion. The Americans, filled with con-
fidence, aggressiveness—and with su-
per-courage were flung raw from the
streets of our cities and towns into
the battle against an enemy who
makes every young man take two
years’ military training.
The lesson taught goes well toward
forming an argument for compulsory
training for the American youth. It
would seem that peace lies only in the
preparation for war. It has been said
no one slaps Jack Dempsey on the face
because he is prepared and it could be
applied equally as well to this country
were we to follow the course prescrib-
ed by well known army officers who
know from actual experience.
Late news about concer may do
much good, if it turns out to be true.
The world has been puzzled by the
spread and origin of cancer, rapidly
taking first place among diseases that
kill human beings. Now Dr. Bazvin,
a French scientist, declares that fleas,
jumping from dogs and cats, transmit
the cancer germ to human beings. It
has long been known that children’s
diseases are spread by dogs and cats
—cats especially. As long as cats are
children’s playthings, say the doctors,
it will be impossible to wipe out diph-
theria, scarlet fever and other child
diseases. That has not had much ef-
fect on those who admire the dog and
cat. But cancer is a terrible disease,
it kills with slow torture, and is hope-
less when beyond the reach of surge-
ry, and it kills adults. If men and
women believed that the pet may be
carrying fleas perhaps borrowed from
other cats and dogs, and ready to
transmit cancer, the pet will seem less
desirable and common sense will gain.

Detroit, Mich., Luly 30.—A total of
1,050,185 automotive products were
built by the various divisions of the
Ford Motor company during the first
six months of the present year, ac-
cording to figures just compiled.
The output for the half year was as
Ford cars and trucks, domestic and
foreign, 941,245; Canada 46,871, Ford-
oe Jractors, 58,5657 and Lincoln cars
_A new monthly record for produc-
tion was established by the Domestic
assembly plants in June with a total
of 175,040 Ford cars and trucks, ex-
ceeding the output of May by nearly
New production marks have been
set up almost daily since January, but
there hasn’t been a time when manu-
facture even approximated the de-
With production increasing in an
endeavor to meet the demand, it is ex-
pected that the company will finish
the year with a total approximating
1,800,000 Ford cars and trucks for do-
mestic use alone.
This is the opinion expressed by of-
ficials in view of the present prosper-
ous conditions, the increasing number
of orders and the outlook for even bet-
ter times prevailing during the com-
ing months.
In bringing up production, efforts
all along have been devoted to build-
ing better. As a result many im-
provements have been made and
though Ford cars and trucks are today
at the lowest price level in the histo-
ry of the company they are of higher
quality and present a greater value to
the purchaser than ever before.
The demand for Ford trucks and
Light Delivery cars is particularly op-
timistic since it reflects the attitude
of business men, as well as farmers,
toward expansion and greater efficien-
cy. Sales of Ford trucks are more
than double those of last year, which
indicates the extent of the general
For months Ford dealers have had
no stocks on hand, buyers absorbing
the cars and trucks as rapidly as they
are turned out of assembly plants.
With this condition continuing produc-
tion is certain to remain at capacity
to aid dealers in making deliveries as
quickly as possible.
Penn State Graduate School Crowded.
A total if 64 men and women are
enrolled in the graduate school of The
Pennsylvania State College this sum-
mer, taking courses leading to advanc-
ed degrees according to information
just given out by Dean Frank D. Kern.
Of this number, 47 are men and 17
women. No less than 41 have regis-
tered for the first time this summer,
the majority being faculty members
or college graduates who are teaching
in Pennsylvania. The graduate school
was established about a year ago and
is taxed to the utmost to give the in-
struction that is now being requested.
To Complete Oiling Earlier Next

July, is contained in a letter to De-

Mr. Connell early this season di-

Department by July 1 completed 500
more miles of oil than was original-

Matches and Toothpicks Made of
Airplane Lumber.
The vast lumber piles of white pine,
hemlock and spruce airplane stock cut
and seasoned during the war but which
was not used, is now being turned in-
to toothpicks and matches.
This valuable wood, famous for its
straight, tough fiber, has suddenly
leaped into demand, and eleven match
factories have been established in the
northwest the last six months. Two
mills are working the easy-splitting
hemlock into polished toothpicks.
