Court-Martial in Chamberlain
Case Is Started in
By Associated Press
J.oiulbn. March 25.—The court
martial in the case of Captain Ed
mund G. Chamberlain, of San An
tonio, Texas, an officer of the Unit
ed States Marine Corps, the story of
whose exploits in bringing down a
nuirtber of German machines 'in an
air battle while he was on a visit to
the British front last July has been
under Investigation for some time,
was begun at American navy head
quarters here yesterday. Captain
Chamberlain was formally charged
with "scandalous conduct tending to
the destruction of good morals,"
i and with "falsehood." He pleaded
nol guilty.
tThe day was spent largely in
jockeying on the admission of re
ports of Chamberlain's alleged ex
ploits, and recommendations for dis
tinctions. Donald Harper, counsel
lor the defense, objected to the man
ner in which the judge advocate
planned to get them into the record.
Lieutenant Commander W. A.
Edwards, Vice Admiral Sims' aid for
aviation, told of receiving alleged of
ficial reports of the exploits, as they
were widely published, and of pre
paring a letter for Admiral Sims,
recommending Chamberlain for the
medal of honor and promotion in
rank. The letter was forwarded to
■Washington. He said the British air
ministry began to doubt the truth
of, the exploits and investigated the
matter last fall.
Mr. Harper tried to prove by
Commander Edwards that a letter
had been received at naval bead
quarters here saying that Chamber
lain flew with the British squadron
from June 20 to July 13 of last year,
but Edwards did not remember such
a letter.
It is understood that several mem
bers cl the Two Hundred and Eighth
Royal Air Squadron are returning
to London on Thursday, and the de
fense expects to call some of these
in an attempt tq prove that Captain
Chamberlain was attached to tha'
squadron during the time mentioned
by Mr. Harper to-day.
The only other winess was Cap
tain F. H. Evans, in command of the
Poliac air station, who said that
when the House Naval Affairs com
mittee was at Poliac, Captain H. I.
Cone, commanding United States na
val aviation in France, instructed
Captain Evans to get Chamberlain's
then untold story.
Calls Burleson Action
"Despotic and Brutal"
New York. March 25. —Postmas-
ter General Burleson's action in dis
missing' Clarence H. Mackay as
president of the Postal Telegraph
Cable Company was characterized
by Mr. Mackay as "despotic and
brutal." in a statement issued here
last night on his return from Balti
more, where he was when the dis
missal notice was served at the
company's office here last Saturday.
Mr. Mackay added that "William
Hohenzollern himself could not have
been more arbitrary, despotic and
vindictive," and served notipe on
Mr. Burleson that he would "fight
to my last dollar and to the last

Commissioner Gross Orders
Two Water Pumpers to
Respond to Alarms
Luck of sufficient fire apparatus
protection for the Allison Hill district
was called to the attention of City
Commissioner E. Z. Gross to-day,
who said that when the 1919 budget
was being prepared he suggested the
purchase of an additional pumping
engine this year, but it was not ap
proved. He also declared that
when the budget is prepared for
next year, provision should be made
for the additional engine.
Last week a break in the mechan
ism of the Alt. Pleasant Company
triple combination pumper put that
piece of apparatus out of service,
with the result that until repairs are
made the entire Hill district is with
out the service of any pumping ap
paratus except the steam engines in
the central district, the nearest of
which are the Citizen and Friendship
pieces in the house in South Third
street below Chestnut.
While one of these responds to
alarms on the Hill it takes several
minutes to get there and last Satur
day night when the fire broke out In
the Bowman, Mell & Company drug
warehouse, only one pumping engine
was brought there until Fire Chief
John C. Kindler sent in a call for the
Citizen and Hope engines.
Two Engines
Commissioner Gross said he will
arrange to have two engines respond
to alarms in the Hill district while
the Mt. Pleasant pumper is out of
service and will also consider the
placing of a steam engine In one of
the Hill company houses temporarily
until the apparatus now out of ser
vice is repaired.
When the motorization of the city
fire department was completed, it
was planned to remove the Paxton
fire engine to the Royal Fire Com
pany house in Derry street near
Twenty-first. This was objected to
by firemen and as a result tlie entire
Allison Hill section has but one
pumping engine withjn the district.
At present of the 22 motorized
pieces of fire apparatus owned by the
city, there are five stationed in
houses in the Hill section as follows:
Mt. Pleasant. Thirteenth and How
ard streets, triple combination pump
er, chemical and hose wagon: Sham
rock. Fifteenth and Herr streets.
I chemical and hose wagon: Allison.
Fourteenth near Kittatinny. chemical
and hose wagon and ladder truck;

In the South Harrisburg section
and in South Second street, below
[Chestnut street, there are fottr
pieces, in the business district and
extending north to a short distance
above State street, eight pieces and
above North street five pieces, in

suited in the rapid and sturdy growth
of grains. Generally the temperatures
over virtually the entire country
were from five to ten degrees above
Frequent warm rains and absence
of severe "cold snaps" also helped
crops. Only in some districts of the
northeast was there any damage
worth recording due to freezing and
thawing with insufficient snow cover.
Continued good weather recently
has been helpful, especially to fruit
bearing plants and trees and a bump
er crop is promised. Grazing lands
likewise have benefited.
The ice crop appears.to have been
the only one to suffer because of the
mildness of the winter.' Lack of
freezing temperatures resulted In
navigation being open practically all
winter on the rivers and lakes of the
United States. Ice that was formed
disappeared quickly under the warm
sunshine nearly everywhere, and
weather bureau experts said to-day
there, was bound to be a considerable
shortage of natural lee for consum
ers during the coming summer.
Bureau statistics show that the
rather general notion that the past
winter actually was the mildest ever
known instead of merely one of the
mildest. Is erroneous. The winter of
1875-76 was considerably warmer,
as was the winter 1877-78. The win
ter of 1881-82 was about like that
just past, and in 1889-90 it was con
siderably warmer In the section east
of the Mississippi river. The winter
1905-06 fell slightly short of being
as mild as that of 1918-19.'"

The New Reo "Convertible" Body
On the Reo "Speedwagon" Chassis
Reo engineers have accomplished another feat in the form of the New Reo Convertible
Body on the Reo "Speedwagon"' chassis. Everybody knows what the Reo Speed
wagon has accomplished mechanically. The new Convertible body is as sturdily con
structed, wears as long and is always ready for business the same as the Reo's that
have gone before it.
There are nine different attachments that can be placed on the basic body shown
below, that will fit practically every form of work in the city and on the farm. These
attachments come separately and are attachable in a moment's time, assuring the owner
just the kind of body he desires and one that he can change at his will to haul any
commodity he may wish. The following list shows some of the uses it is put to,
