Says Vail Wants to
Unload the Q. T. & T.
Upon Government
By Associated Press
Washington. Jan. 21. Senator
Sherman, of Illinois, Republican, de
clared in the Senate yesterda that
Theodore X. Vail, personal adviser
on wire control to Postmaster Gen
eral Burleson, favors government
ownership of telegraph and tele
phone lines in order that the prop
erty of the American Telegraph and
Telephone Company, of which slr.
Vail is president, can be "unloaded"
on the government.
"Theodore X. Vail Is an assistant
to Mr. Burleson and is interested in
unloading the American Telegraph
and Telephone Company on the gov
ernment, and Mr. Burleson knows
it," Senator Sherman said. "Mr. Vail
is a Bolshevist in disguise. He be
lieves in government ownership of

Shaffer's Last
| It was the same with the wood
that-the prisoners gathered to make
their little fires and cook their few
potatoes, turnips, etc., The Boche
1 compelled each one to give up a
certain portion, and true to his char
, acter of making all the useless suf-
I fering possible, he would pick out
i | the wood that was most dry. Many
f a time liavo 1 saw a miserable
, hungry poilu trying with all the
5 firo-making art he possessed to
make a fire burn with nothing but
. green wood. Thus, by the time the
. fire got going right It was dark, and
the guard' for fear of airplanes,
l came around and stamped it out.
And there you are! Some life, eh!
t Golly, how glad I was that I was a
sergeant, and how sorry I was for
those 111-treated soldiers. Some of
them had no shoes. Other had no
socks, and many there were like me
who had no overcoat, and since
morning roll call generally lasted
some three hours, one missed It.
For a substitute 1 used my one and
only blanket. It helped some, any
way, but not enough, so I chopped
a piece off and made a belly-band.
That helped wonderfully in the heat
line, but it helped also in the breed
ing lino, and when I discovered
some S.OOO families more or less, of
Boche "cooties" therein, I promptly
abandoned it. And you can take it
from me those Boche "cooties" don't
go In for race suicide, either. Yes,
I feel quite sure I did more lighting
back of the German lines than I
ever did on the French front, but
although th% latter is the more dat
gerous I prefer it to the former—
Ono can't lick an army that multi
plies itself six times over night. Xo,
by golly! It's a bigger Job than the
Kaiser tackled and that was' consid
erable, as he happens to know now.
Time continued to fly, with me
getting nowhere, but chafe as I
would I had to wait for the bread,
for by the best luck in the world,
three days were required to get
back through the lines. Every day
I gained a few more bugs, and grew
more Impatient to be off. Probably
five days had passed when I finally
I got a loaf of bread. It only cost
about 52.00, but what was money
to leaving that eternal diet of cof
fee and soup to say nothing of scald
ing the whole Boche army (of coo
ties), I was carrying in a hot gath.
Rumors of Peace.
Rumors were growing thicker as
| to piece negotiations and the Eng
lishmen growing less enthusiastic
about escape all the time advising
waiting a few days more to see how
things would turn out. Being an
American, this patience idea didn't
appeal at all. I had the grub and
1 wanted to be on my way. Why
wait for peace? Thunderation! Let's
go meet it. But still they held off.
I was not so strong on going It alone
because what I did not know about
trench warfare would fill one very
large book. Come to think of it,
; the two Englishmen knew as little
as I did, so it was well that we did
not make the try together, for in
crawling back through the lines, a
thorough knowledge of trench war
fare was necessary.
Organize for Escape.
Being stationed miles back the
lines and only flying over the trench
es at high altitudes, naturally, we
knew nothing about the way an In
fantryman fights. Blissfully ignor
ant, though I was, however, I was
! going to have a try. It only re
maind. then to wait for the properly
wet night. Xext day I found out that
four Frenchmen in the same bar
racks with me had been planning an
escape for weeks. There were four
of them and they had both maps
and wire cutters as well, as a com
plete knowledge of trench warfare.
The party was set two days later
on a Sunday night. Bet I lost no
| time in butting in on this wire cut
' ting picnic. Having my allowance
; of bread and being pretty well liked
they let me in on the ground floor,
1 and gave all particulars. Their plan
| was both daring and safe as was
! possible. Yon see. there were four
1 guards, each guard having a side
; for his beat. It was quite a long
j beat at that, too. One side of the
■ enclosure run right against a main
road, much used by the Boche ar
! , It was on this side the attempt
| was to be made just as darkness
; was falling. This time was chosen
because the two bright electric lights
on that side would not be lit, and
also the guard would be so busy
opening and shutting the gate to let
the returning working parties in
that he would never notice our go
ing. The plan sounded good, so
good, in fact, that another French
man had got wind of it and wanted
to go along. Bo we were six, and I.
I for one waited very impatiently for
| the Sunday services to commence.
To March in 15 Minutes.
Tou can Imagine our feelings
when early Sunday morning orders
come to be ready to march in 10
minutes. That meant that the
whole camp was moving farther
back, owing to the successes of the
Allies. However, the success of the
Allies did not help us any. It busted
up the whole darn party and it was
so carefully planned. We did not
march in 10 minutes, though, be
cause there was too much to do.
The Boche commander even held
things up for awhile, so that he
eould distribute a store house full of
needful things to the prisoners. 'This
was an eye-opener to me, as judging
from the looks of the captives they
had been given nothing whatever.
And to think that all that stuff had
lain there while prisoners suffered
and died. There were stockings,
shirts, towels, handkerchiefs, basins,
spoons, blankets and even shoes, not
leather, of course, but shoes, never
the less, and many there were who
had none. Those basins were just
the thing for soup and while they
lay securely packed in the ware
house we had hunted old, filthy cans
to eat out of.
Boche Humor.
The Boche commander, having no
means of transportation for these
things and not wishing to leave it
for the Allies, called for a grand
scramble. That, he felt sure, would
be amusing. It was in a pathetic
way .for the mob of prisoners, need,
lng so many of these articles, cer
tainly put up a wild scrap for them.
Here could be seen two who had
grabbed the same pair of socks, and
in their endeavors to pull it from
each other's hands were finding out
its stretching and wearing qualities.
There could be seen another pair
Just as excitedly tugging at a basin.
Once I saw four prisoners get hold
of the same shirt at the same time.
Even I could not help laughing at
that, for po two of the prisoners
were of the same nationality. One
was a black Turco from far-ofT Af
rica, anoth , a black-eyed Italian;
of the other two, one was English
and the other French. They were
all mad .they were all cussing and
they were doing it at once.
Talk about the babble of tongues.
The Tower of Babel had nothing on
this. But never had I seen men
more united in thought, for they
were truly allies. Xo four nations
ever strove for the same object as
their four representatives strove for
that shirt. What finally happened
to it, I don't know, for a friend
came along just then and gave me
one of the four basins he had gar-
I nered from tho combat. 4 fear,
though that the story of the shirt
did not have a happy ending. Just
the same, I was betting on the
lioaded Down.
It was not long before we were
on the march and according lo ru
mor, a fifteen- mile march aehad of
t us. Judging from the way some of
j those Frenchmen were loaded down
I I could not see how they were doing
ito make it. It's a cinch they needed
ino guards for with all that junk
jon their backs escape was out of
the question. A big wooden box
half as tall as they were besides
blankets, several sacks filled to
j bulging also, nnd a water bottle.
; Where they got these wooden boxes
j will always remain a mystery to me.
for there was no wood in camp and
! little that could be fashioned Into
! a box outside; yet two days after, a
| prisoner arrived, he had his wooden
box' with all his valuables .locked
therein, meaning eatables. A French
Lieutenant, who was in chrage of
returning prisoners at Cambriil once
told me that a Frenchman will keep
all he finds, whether it be a tin can,
wooden shoe or a carrot. Certainly
| the latter. It's sure a fact. A
turtle has nothing on him, for he
corries his whole house with hint,
too —kitchen, dining room and bed-
I room. Loaded down this way he
I went on the march, and many being
in an unhealthy condition soon fell
by the wayside from exhaustion. It
was a pitiful sight, indeed, and
even more so, when the Boclie guard
came along and prodded the unfor
tunate to his feet with his rifle. And
said all-in captive lighten his pack.
He did not. He would not even cut
loose his wooden shoes. In fact, I
had no pity for some of them, for
they seemed as weak in the head
as in the legs. Why carry a lot of
unnecessary junk when one is not
strong enough to carry' it - .'
Traveling Light.
As for myself, I was traveling
light, using one blanket as an over
coat and the other tied snugly over
my back. I also had a small sack
in whiclil had the loaf of bread,
which I had been at so much pains
and expense to get for that night's
getaway. I had not given up the
idea as yet, not by a long shot. For
I was traveling light on purpose. If
an opportunity presented itself I
sure was going to grab it, for I
had a general idea of the lay of the
land, thereabouts and in which di
rection the lines were and what was
more important I had a loaf of black
bread, supposed to last me three
days. So I waited the chance.
Meanwhile we passedi through the j
city of Mom-Cornet. Every thing
was confusion here, for the Boche
were getting out, and following
their usual custom, taking every
thing portable with them. Not even
the coal scuttle esc. ">ed, and as for
bed and table linen, you can well
believe, none of that was overlooked
for the Boche was sadly in need of
that, as his hospitals had been us
ing paper bandages for a long time.
We certainly had covered most of
that 15 miles before I decided my
opportunity had arrived. Right
ahead of us the road passed through
a dense forest. HOre, by golly, was
a heaven-sent chance.

Penrose Attacks Hoover
Senator Penrose said Mr. Hoover
"had insulted every Republican
citizen" by advising the American
people to support tho Democratic
party in the last congressional cam

The Pennsylvania Senator offered
an amendment requiring that the re
lief fund be used to purchase sup

Martin criticised this proposal "as
a profiteering stipulation on a chari
table fund" and Mr. Penrose finally
modified it to read that wheat to be
given free to the people of Europe
should be purchased in this country
as far as possible. The amendment
then was adopted. .
Another amendment offered by
Senator Asliurst, of Arizona, Demo
crat, would give every soldier, sail

German Elections
Show Trend Toward
Republican Government
I.niuton, Jan. 21.—"Tho course of
the elections throughout tho German
state," says a German government
wireless dispatch received here "has
clearly proved that tho development
of a republican form of government
interests tho whole German nation.
Participation in tho elections was
strong everywhere, nnd in the sharp
est contradiction to tho indifference
which vast classes, especially among
the Bourgeoisie, have shown on the
occasion of former elections. Es
pecially remarkable was the strong
percentage of women among the
masses of voters and tho persever
ance of both male and female vot
ers to record their votes, despite ad
verse weather conditions.
"Only from tho lthineland, the
mining district of Ilamborn, Cassel
nnd a few small places have there
been disturbances due to the violence
of Spartaca hands. Everywhere else
the day has been quiet both in the
provinces nnd in the large towns.
"The party administration of tho
Independent Socialists has now ap
pealed to the workers to suspend
■ their strike and return to work."
Pennsylvania Men
Win D. S. 0. Medals
Washington. Jan. 21.—Twenty-sev
en American officers, all bearing the
rank of colonel or higher and includ
ing Brigadier General William W.
Atterbury, of Philadelphia, have been
awarded the Distinguished Service
Medal upon recommendation of Gen
eral Pershing.
General Atterbury was sent to
France early in the war to get the
railroads into shape to start trans
portation facilities and to build over
seas a system that would parallel the
excellence of the Pennsylvania rail
road at home.
His experience and his administra
tion have been one succession of tri
umphs, according to those who served
under him and those who have wit
nessed the facilities that the United
States had in Frnace.
General William Weigel Is a New
Jersey man and commanded one of
the infantry brigades of the Twenty
eighth Division, the famous Iron Di
vision, comprised of Pennsylvania
National Guardsmen.
General Malin Craig is also a Penn
sylvnnian and was appointed to the
Military Academy from this state.
General Robert C. Davis is another
Keystone Stater and was sent to West
Point by appointment.
Washington. Jan. 21.—The senate

In the area set aside are 996
