Independent Headquarters
Has Been Established
ut Coblenz
Coblenz, Geripany, April 22.
Since the beginning of American
occupation of Germany, the Knights
of Columbus force has steadily
grown until to-day at Coblenz there
is un independent lieadqiAirters of
the organization with its own com
plete equipment. The operations be
yond the Rhine are under the im
mediate direction of Fred V. Milan,
of Minneapolis, lie has under b' B
control a force of over 100 secre
taries. This quota would be much
larger were it possible to obtain men
for the work. So great has been the
need of labor, that German civilians
in large numbers are employed in
the warehouse and about the clubs
in lesser capacity.
The entire operation of the Army
of Occupation is directed from head
quarters in Coblenz. The city is
therefore a leave area and daily over
3,000 to.diets have enjoyed the lib
erty of the city. These men conic
from the far districts of the Army,
from Treves and the camps situated
far up the Rhine or the Moselle. It
is a mighty army that the American
service organizations must make as
comfortable as their means will per
mit, while they await the word to
start for home.
Visitors From Distance
The men come from the outlying
camps in the big fleet of river boats
plying the Rhine and Moselle rivers.
They are met by men of the Knights
of Columbus and from their arrival
in Coblenz or Treves, the second
leave center of the area, they are
urged to make the headquarters and
club of the organization their homes.
At Coblenz the visiting soldiers are
billeted in a huge structure former
ly known as the Florient Magazine
and there is room toy 1,200 men
every night. In this big warehouse,
nearly 20,000 doughnuts are fried
on some days. The entire output
of each day is sent to a given soldier
unit in the occupied district. At
their destination these delicacies are
distributed by the head of the
Knights of Columbus secretaries in
each clubhouse.
Big Bathhouse
In Coblenz. before the war, there
was maintained one of the tinest
municipal baths in all Germany. The
big structure now is in the hands ov
the Knights of Columbus, who are
providing every modern bath, needle,
shower, tub, medicated or just a
plain/ old-fashioned sponge and rub,
for over 300 soldiers every hour.
At the enlisted men's club there
are eight large rooms where every
wantof the Soldier is supplied. There
is also an officers' club nearby.
Across the Moselle from Coblenz
is a large American garrison, the
soldiers of which are not permitted
to cross the river. Four clubhouses
have been established at that post
for the enlisted men and a large
club has recently been opened for
Texas Shipbuilders
Think Future Good;
Keep Building Ships
Renumont. Tex.. April 22.—Texas
shipbuilders believe there will be a
market for all the vessels they can
turn out and will continue operations
regardless of the Emergency Fleet
Corporation canceling contracts for
boats on which work had not started.
At the shipyards here and in Orange
no men have been discharged since
January 1 and the ways show as
great activity as in war time. Of
ficials of many yards, say that with
the revival of the American mer
chant marine they expect to keep up
capacity operation indefinitely.
The demand for houses for ship
yard workers has shown virtually no
decrease since the war ended.
Plan to Forestall
German Attempt to
Establish Big Army
By Associated Press *
Paris, April 22.—The Council of
Foreign Ministers has approved the
proposed provision of the peace
treaty to forestall any effort the
Germans might make to re-establish
a military machine by utilizing out
side forces. The article prohibits the
sending of German military instruc
tors to foreign countries. It was re
ferred to the drafting committee.
Lehigh Valley Income
Shows Net Decrease
,^ w T y wk. April 22.—Xet income
of the Lehigh Valley Railroad Com
pany for the year 1918 was $8,592 -
834. according to the annual report
made public here. This was a de
crease of $359,025 compared with
the previous year.
"The many consolidations, combi
nations and pooling of facilities and
equipment inaugurated by the rail
road administration have resulted in
the diversion to other routes of rev
enue bearing traffic which your com
pany had enjoyed," E. E. Loomis
president, said in his remarks to
stockholders. "Similarly the dis
continuance of the solicitation of
traffic has left your railroad without
representation in important business
producing centers where it previous
ly had built up good will of great
value. It is impossible to foresee
effect of these changes on the
traffic and earnings of your com
pany after the roads are returned to
their private owners."
Atmosphere Better,
Says Mr. Penrose
Senator Iloies Penrose, who virited
most of the departments at the Capi
tol yesterday, spent hours talking
with department chiefs, met the
Public Service Commissioners and
chatted with numerous legislators,
said yesterday that it was his first
visit to the Capitol since 1913, when
he addressed the lawmakers.
"The atmosphere is a bit better
than it was in the last four years,"
he remarked yesterday afternoon.
This remark got about the Hill and
was the cause of many smiles.
The Senator had a fine time visit
ing yesterday. He called at the Gov
ernor's office and had a long talk
with Secretary Harry 8. McDevitt
about the Governor, saw State Chair
man William E. Crow and various
British Farmer Has Trouble
to Dispose of His
London, April 22.—The British
farmer Is suffering from the fact
that the government had stacked the
granaries of Great Britain with
wheat In preparation for a great
spring offensive against the Germans
this year. Now that the offensive
is not to bo undertaken, tho farmer
Is having difficulty in selling his
crop of last year's wheat.
Explaining the situation at the
annual dlnnor of the Land Union
recently. Lord Ernlo, formerly Rob
ert K. Prothero, president of the
Board of Agriculture, said: "I do
not know that X am revealing a se
cret when 1 say that the government
intended, if the war had not linish
ed in November, to make its great
'push' about this time. In this month
or next month we should have tried
to place on the western front the
whole force of the Allies we could
command and should have tried to
bring the war to a conclusion this
"For that purpose we wanted the
absolute control of all the tonnage
we could get. We wanted every ship
| to be free to bring over munitions,
food and everything else which the
I army required. For that reason wc
! brought into this country a large
I quantity of food supplies. If our
I shipping was to be engaged in bring
j ing over food to this country in the
j middle of that military push we
i should have been hampered.
"The consequence was that we
1 filled the granaries of this counthy
; with wheat in order that we should
j be free for this great military en
! terprise. You cannot alter your
plaits in a few hours. The wheat is
j now being passed into consumption
as quickly as possible."
Use the Gasoline
the Trucks Use
Truck-owners do not buy gasoline by guess.
They know. They keep records of the gasoline
put in and the miles taken out. They buy Power.
It is not surprising, then, that Atlantic Gasoline
is the choice of the majority of truck-owners.
\ i r
Trucks are not driven for pleasure. They are
• a business proposition, pure and simple. They
must make good on a business basis. Hauling
costs are determined to the penny.
What is the lesson for you? Simply this:
Truck-users have experimented for you„
They have found that Atlantic gives the most.
No sentiment in that. Cold fact based on day
after-day experience with loads and roads.
Atlantic is their choice. For Atlantic is Power.
In the light of such experience, will you con
tinue to ask merely for "gasoline" ?
Or, will you say, state, declare and affirm
that you want Atlantic Gasoline and that no
other motor-fuel will do?
Use the gasoline the trucks use.
