U. S. Youths to Six Months'
Service in Army or Navy
VinsliinKton, August I.—A sweep
ing and comprehensive system of
universal military training to be co
ordinated with the after-the-war
military program was submitted to
both houses of Congress late yes
In the Senate Senator Chamberlain,
ranking Democratic member of the
military affairs committee, and in
the House, Chairman Julius Kahn,
of the military committee, introduced
bills to initiate the training system.
All youths, under the provisions of
the bills, which were prepared large
ly by the National Training Camps'
Association, must take six months'
training at any time during their
eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth
years, with the exception of those
who have served six months during
the present war or are morally or
physically unfit. Vocational training
for those with a small knowledge of
the English language is also pro
Reserves in both the army and navy
are created by the bill. These would
bo composed of all men who have
served during the war, and they
would be held in the reserve for five
years after their discharge, provid
ing they have not reached the age of
30 by that time, in addition to all
men given military training under
the bill. These would be held for
10 years.
To provide for emergencies, the
President is not only given power to
call put the reserves in case of an
emergency, but also all other persons
liable for service between the ages
of IS and 45.
Noticing the statement of Profes
sor W. R. Zimmerman, assistant
county superintendent, published in
the Telegraph a few days ago, in
which he told of the serious short
age of teachers, six applicants have
written to him to secure schools in
the county and have been referred
to districts in need of teachers. The
last examinations for provisional and
professional certificates will be held
August 15 and 16.
Charged with attempted forgery,
Bernard Valentine, 15 years old, will
be given a hearing in police court
during the afternoon. Valentine is
charged with having attempted to
"raise" a check drawn in his
mother's name on a local bank from
$5 to $5l. The arrest was made in
the Cnpitol library.
Parliamentary Battle on Over.
London, Aug. I. —Belief is held t
by some political observers that the j
parliamentary battle over the proposed i
nationalization of mines and railways
may split the coalition government of |
Great Britain.
The coal magnates are trying to
r.iily the mine owners to defend their
rights and the whole principle of pri
vate ownership of under earth deposits
is at stake.
The government has an arrangement
which Cowdray's experts are exploring
for oil and he Labor party and many
liberals propose that the government
shall deny any right of private owner
ship in oilfields.
A hundred members of the coalition
in the House of Commons have protest
ed to tlie prime minister against the
transport bill. This bill gives the new
minister of transport. Sir Eric Geddes,
control over highways, road transport,
railways, tramways, docks, canals and
coastwise shipping. It is now proposod
to add electric power.
Sir Eric claims that the ministry will
have no greater authority than the
Board of Trade formerly held. Oppo
nents charge that the bill makes him
a dictator with far more power than
Secretary McAdoo had in the United
States as director general of railroads.
, and that his office might make and
wreck industries and communities.
A powerful phalanx of interests is
| against nationalization. These include
the coal and electric companies. The
Westminster Gazette thinks the com
bination will have no real weight un
less ready with a definite alternative
policy. Many observers believe the
"interests" will subside gracefully be
fore a flood of public opinion.
$694,250,000 Spent but
Not One War Plane Reaches
Lines of American Army
Washington, D. C„ Aug. 1.
Failure of the aviation service to
achieve results commensurate with
the demands of the war was indi
cated in the testimony before the
House Committee investigating avi
ation yesterday, at which it was
| developed that although Congress
i had appropriated $694,250,000 for
I the service not a single combat or
| heavy bombing plane had reached
the American Army in France when
the armistice was signed.
• Secretary Baker's testimony was
to the effect that none of the men |
appointed head of the aviation serv- ,
ice had had experience with avia
tion or aviation production. John
D. Ryan, the last head of the serv
ice* was cited by Mr. Baker as his
personal selection because he be- i
lieved him to be "an exceptional
business executive."
Passed Over Tried Executives
Part of the examination of the
Secretary of War concerned the ap
pointment of Colonel E. A. Deeds
to supervise the aviation service,
who was unknown to Mr. Baker
prior to his appointment, although
both hailed from the same State.
Asked why General Goethals and
Wood and others of proved execu
tive ability had been passed over
for one unknown to him, Mr. Baker
said that General Goethals had re
tired from the Army and entered
into the private practice of his pro
fession. When attention was called i
to the fact that General Goethals
had applied to the Secretary for ac
tive service, but had been denied
and permitted to remain idle for six
months. Secretary Baker said that |
General Goethals wanted to go over- |
seas and that he was too old to fight.
He admitted, however, that the Gen- '■
oral later "rendered extremely ac- I
tive and efficient service" after be- I
ing made head of the purchase and I
storage and traffic division of the i
War Department. The hearings |
touched upon the severe criticism i
which had been leveled against
various heads of aviation.

Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce
lias begun the task of compiling sta
tistics of industrial conditions in the
city, officials of the organization
have announced. The resumption of
normal business activities makes it
especially important at this time

The greatest need for these statis

Meteoric Career of North
Penn's Paying Teller Bared
by Inquisitors
Philadelphia, Aug. 1. Lavish
gifts of jewels to his wives, reckless
use of three automobiles, care-free
purchase for cash of a ten thousand
purchase for cash of a ten-thousand
dollar home in Cynwyd, have marked
the past five years of the life of
Elwood H. Strang, the $125-a-month
paying teller of the North Penn
Bank, according to facts brought to
light yesterday by investigators.
Detectives from the District At
torney's office have gone to Atlantic
City to invite Strang to return to
Philadelphia to throw some light on
his extraordinary activities here, and
on the muddled affairs of the bank.
Known under three names, and
wedded under two, the young man
spent money with a recklessness that
attracted attention.
As Elwood H. Strang he met and
married within live weeks, Miss
Catherine Dcwald. lie then had
three automobiles.
As J. E. Caldwell, five weeks after
he had been divorced by the first
Mrs. Strang on the grounds of deser
tion and cruel and barbarous treat
ment, he married Miss Julia Grail
and installed her in a $lO,OOO home
at 5 Latches lane, in Cynwyd. And
he paid cash for the home.
Under the name of Foster he was
also known to other women. At
the North Penn Bank he answered
the telephone either as Caldwell or
Strang. And his salary was $125 a
Interest centers on Strang, owing
to the fact that a subpoena server
could not find him to serve a sum
mons to appear as a witness at the
further hearing of Itafph T. Moyer,
the cashier of the wrecked institu
tion, on Tuesday.
Attention was directed toward the
dashing twenty-nine-year-old pay
ing teller, who, investigators learned
yesterday, cut a wide swath in the
gay districts of New York, Philadel
phia and Atlantic City, as a conse
iquence of statements made at that
j hearing by Walter O. Colflesh.
Walter Colflesh, the clerk who de
scribes himself as a "boob" and who
was designated by Fred Taylor
Pusey, the special Assistant Attorney
General appointed by Governor
Sproul, as a "squealer," was further
revealed to have automobiles, a
summer home at a seashort resort,
and to have been receiving $5O a

(which has overdrafts in the neigh
borhood of $15,000 at the bank.
Why You Are Paying
High Prices For Meat
Ihe comment of the American press on the Federal Trade Commission's report on the
packing industry would tend to show that the people do not seem to be worrying over the pre
cise percentage of profits made by Mr. Armour and Mr. Swift and Mr. Wilson and the rest, |
nor are they so deeply concerned lest these gentlemen branch out too widely into the grocery
business. What they do ask is: are the packers profiteering; arc they keeping up the price of
meat and other products they handle; are they one of the props of the High Cost of Living? |
\\ hile the packers have their defenders among the newspapers, there is a widespread belief is *
that the "Big hive ' can not be held guiltless of a 11 blame for the continuance of high food prices,
as is shown in the leading article in THE LITERARY DIGEST for August 2d. *

For End of Race Riot
Chester, Pa., Aug. 1. Three
thousand Knights of Pythias, colored,
from all parts of Pennsylvania, pa
raded yesterday In connection with the
Grand Lodge session. Most of those in
the line of parade were uniformed

disturbances between the whites and
blacks were passed. The resolutions
call upon all law-abiding cirtxens to
take every means to prevent further
troubles of this kind, and the delegates
to the Grand Lodge session pledged
themselves to work to this end. They
also call attention to the part the col
ored race played in the World War
and what effort the Knights are mak

for them by all classes. Great praise
was given the grand chancellor. B. G.
