Physicians Soon to Form
Medical Service Corps
Physicians planning for the organi
zation of the Daupnin county branch
of the Volunteer Medical Service
Corps are becoming more active and
are expected to have the plans con
sidered informally at the next nionth-
Iv meeting of the Dauphin County
Medical Association. This will be
held on Tuesday, September 3.
Several prominent physicians are
expected to present further details
concerning the organization of such
a unit.
"It is a gentleman's agreement"
says the coming issue of the
Academician. of the Dauphin
County Medical Society, "upon the
part of the civilian doctors in the
t'nited States who have not vet been
honored by commissions in the Array
or Navy, and a representative Board >
of Governors consisting of officials
of the Government associated with
lay members of the profession, in
which the civilian physician agrees
to offer his services to the Govern
ment if required and asked to do so
by the Governing Board."

Doctor Howard went to France
several months ago to make a per

Aircraft Scandal Shows Per
fect Mania For Tinker
ing and Ineficiency
Washington Aug. 26.—The report
of the Senate Military Affairs Com
mittee on the aircraft program and
the publication of startling evidence
before the committee Is simply pre
paratory to the big smash which Is
expected *o come this week with the
report of the lnvestlgatlton c on
ducted by Charles K. Hughes.
Members of the Senate Investigat
ing Committee, who refrained from
pursuing questions of personal or
criminal responsibility In the matter
of aircraft production, but could not
help but see the outcropplngs In the
course of their investigation and
other investigators who have gone
over precise!} the same ground cov
ered by Mr. Hughes, confidently pre
dict a report from him that will de
mand Immediate and sweeping action
on the part of the department of
What they have found and what
they say Mr. Hughes has found Is in
A trail of graft that runs through
the aircraft production program
from the .'-cginning up until the
present time.
Sabotage proved and certain, cou
pled with criminal acts in produc
tion of aircraft, negligence and In
competency that can only be arrested
by the strong arm of the luw.
Profiteering extravagance and
criminal waste of materials of al
most inestimable value to the speed
ing-up of aircraft production and its
consequent effect upon the strength
and effectiveness of our troops in the
battle line
Favoritism and high pay for
supervision of work by persons
wholly incompetent for the task, and
inspection that was a farce and noth
ing short ot contributory to murder
in giving tht stamp of approval at
the factor.' to machines that would
prove man-killers when tried on the
flying field.
A singular grouping of men of
Teutonic blood or extraction in im
portant positions in aircraft produc
tion plants anil the rotation of skilled
workmen of the same class fyotn one
aircraft plant to another.
One of the astounding things about
the aircraft scandal is the fact that
those responsible for the blunders
and worse made in the past seem
ingly have paid not the slightest at
tention to the early criticisms and
disclosures concerning their tactics.
They have acted as if absolutely
secure in their positions. Detailed
exposures, most serious and circum
stantial in their character, were
treated by them with silent contempt.
They denied nothing. explained
nothing, reformed nothing.
Tliis Washington mania for put
tering an 3 tinkering with every war
device obtainable seemingly is in
curable. and it may be doubted if
the severe condemnation expressed
by the Senate Military Affairs Com
mittee will have much effect on
those who there indulge in it. It
seemingly makes no difference if the
particular device which falls into
the hands of these official engineer
ing "experts" has long since been
perfected by home or foreign de
Not to Strangle Auto

Washington, Aug. 16.—Differences
between the government and auto

war program .lave been settled satis
factorily, Chairman Baruch, of the
war industries board, announced to
Passenger automobile manufacture
for the last half of the present year
will be cut 50 per cent, as the result
of an agreement entered into by the
board's special committee on auto
mobile negotiations and the Auto
mobile Chamber of Commerce, rep
resented by Hugh Chalmers and Al
bert Reeves.
The agreement in effect provides
that no manufacturer of passenge,r

of this year more than 25 per cent,

Later they were driven to the
county meeting, where speeches were
made by Senators Sproul and Beidie
iv.an, Chaplain Zct'fass, Congressman
Crago ami Senator Sehuntz. The
meeting was presided over by former
District Attorney Fred B. Gernerd.
The resolutions adopted by the
meeting are of the win-the-war va
riety; they denounce profiteering
and the waste of millions in airplane
construction, and strongly indorse
the Republican state and local tick
ets, as well as the administrations of
Senators Penrose and Knox.
In his speech Senator Sproul said:
"If the people of Germany knew
their politics as we do ours and real
ized their strength they would not
blindly follow corrupt and degener
ate leadership into the slaughter
house of their hopes, to find them
selves, execiated and accursed of

in this year of crisis and of trial,
and, moreover, we are more than
proud of the fact that we are Re
publican politicians, for if ever any
party, since political parties were
first heard of. has conducted itself
with honox* and credit, the Republi
can party has so honored itself in
the present great national emer
gency. Never in the history of any
land has there been such an example
of patriotism without regard to par
tisanship as has been shown by the
Republicans of America since our
nation has been drawn into the great
war. The P.epublican leaders in
congress and in the states, the Re
publican press and the Republican
people, have not followed in the
preparation of the country for battle
and in the prosecution of the war—
they have led.
"The Republican leaders in state
craft. in finance, in business and in
the everyday work of carrying on
this war. may not have been invited
into the management of matters for
the administration, but they didn't
have to be invited in—they jumped
in While ir. this country the ad
ministration has not formed a non
partisan cabinet and invited the
leaders of all parties to sit in coun
cil, as is the case in Great Britain
and in France, and our government,
within it3elf. is still conducted upon
a strictly partisan basis, the great
bulk of "the real work—the heavy
work of prosecuting the war for
America and democracy—is being
done by Republicans—patriots who
may be working without official titles
and without definite authority, and.
maybe, for a dollar a year, but they
are on the Job and are getting away
with it.
'A very distinguished Democrat—
at least, he claims to be a Democrat,
although the titular heads of the
party in the state seem to be in
doubt as to his party status —in a
speech here in Lehigh county a week
ago to-day, claimed for the Demo
cratic pax'ty not only all the credit
for the preparation of the war and
the great things which have been ac
complished in mobilizing men and
munitions and money for winning
the victory which we are sure to
have, but, if he was quoted aright,
criticised the Republicans for their
attitude toward the President of the
United States.
Republicans Firm
"My oUI-ime friend and worthy
opponent ought not to raise that is
sue—that is one issue that cannot
be successfully raised in this cam
paign. The Republican party ar.d
the Republican press have been so
devotedly patriotic that the issue
of partisanship has been entirely
lost sight of except by some Demo
crats. The Republican people of the
United States have been so absolutely
forgetful of partisan lines and have
so loyally supported the government
in all of its activities, that the Presi
dent and the administration have
been given the most comprehensive
powers ever granted to any constitu
tional ruler upon the face of the
earth, "without stint or condition, and
have been free, without hindrance
or embarrassment, to carry out the
mightiest program of offensive war
fare ever undertaken since history
"Many Republicans may have
felt, they may still feel, that it would
have been better and broader na
tional policy if, in a time of crisis,
when every energy and every inter
est of the republic must he mar
shalled for duty and sacrifice, that
the great minds of all parties ahould
be brought Into the administrative
branches of the government, and the
cabinet strengthened and the people
unified for the great undertaking.
But they haven't sulked nor held
back on that account and the very
unselfishness of the Republicans of
this land has made it unnecessary to
form a coalition cabinet here, a con
dition unprecedented under similar
conditions in any other nation. If we
patriots w would.-not be.
Republicans, and the adminlstra- i
tion at Washington, the people of j
this republic and our Allies in the j
great war tnny be thankful, and we,
surely may be proud, that the Re-1
publican altitude in this crisis has
been correct and patriotic to the
letter. Hod wo been as partisan as;
some of our critics, there might have
been a different tale to tell.
State Is Mainstay of Defense'
"And Pennsylvania—what of her?;
Tho issuo of what Pennsylvania is |
doing in the great national crisis;
has been raised. Pennsylvania stands j
firm now as she has always stood, the,
very mainstay of tho national de-j
fensc. The great Republican state, j
this veritable empire of a common-1
wealth, has done more within her-|
self for carrying on this war than j
any five Democratic states in the;
Union. Pennsylvania alone has given
more of her effort, more of her skill, 1
more of her wealth and more of her |
men than all of the half dozen states
combined which furnish the chair
men of tho big committees in our
Democratic congress.
"And, my friends, in glorified sor
row let it be said that more of the
sons of Pennsylvania have given
their lives already In this struggle
of the ages than have been contri
buted by any of her sister states.,
We have our shortcomings in Penn
sylvania, we have some weak spots
thut must be 'strengthened, some
faults wc will correct, but lack of
loyal effort for the winning of this
war is not one of these. Don't let
us hear that question raised again!
Tariff Not Dead
After saying the tariff is not a
dead issue, the Senator remarked:
! "And some other Republican policies
sound good right now—Republican
- policies that were particularly popu
lar in Pennsylvania. The upbuild
ing of the navy—where would we be
; 10-day without the navy which was
built up entirely by Republican ad
ministrations against bitter opposi
tion upon the part of the very ele
ments now in control of the Demo
cratic organization. Only three years
ago the present secretary of the navy
saw no reason for an increased naval
program. He is paying dollars now |
for ships he could then have built,
j for dimes and have prepared our
[ shipyards for the mighty task that is
now upon them.
"And here in Pennsylvania, from |
time Immemorial, we have urged 1
some sort of encouragement for our
merchant marine, that we might
have ships to sail the seas and men
; to man them, but our precious
Democrats .were against this, tooth
and nail, and enough timid brethren
from the west were found to join
them in defeating any definite action.
I A few million tons of ships with a
| big force of trained soldiers would
have been mighty handy lately and
would have saved this nation thou
sands of lives and billions of dollars.
Too Much to Do to Adjourn Politics
"Aqd yet now my optimistic
friend from Philadelphia wants to
give the Democrats credit for our
shipbuilding program. Hindsight is
, a great thing, if it is not too far be
hind. but Republican foresight is in
j finitely better.
"So, my friends, we will not ad
j journ our politics just yet. Some-
I times in the Legislature some fellow
'who has got all he wants and is
| afraid ihe other fellow may turn a
| trick moves to adjourn? It is a fa
miliar parliamentary play, but we'll
not adjourn now. We have too much
; work to do. We have to send Re
-1 publicans to Washington to help the
| administration through with the
great task before our nation—and
we will help them and keep on help
, ing, we will make our sacrifices and
. bear the burden. We will do all
! we can to win the war, devotedly and
] unselfishly and when it is over we
I will he on hand to solve the mighty
j questions then arising with Repub-
I lican courage and Republican pa-
I triotism. When all the power we
; have so generously given into the
j hands of the federal government is
! returned to the states and to the peo
| pie, as it must be returned in large
; portion if our government is to con
j tinue as it has been in the past; when
i the readjustments are made with
i other nations and with our own peo
[ pie, then is when the real test of our
I democracy, our faith in our institu
