Early action of Congress is urged,

Attributing much of the success
of the Marine Corps in the war to
the system of drawing its commis

commandant said the "highest effi

the highest class of recruits.
General Barnett recommended I
that the present two, three and four ,
year enlistment terms be made per- i
manent as being more attractive '
than the rigid pre-war term of four j
years, and asked increased pay for J
both enlisted men and officers.
Great difficulty is being experi- ]
onced in replacing the temporary |
enlrsted personnel of the aviation
section of the corps, now completely
demobilized. General Barnett rec

aviation services on a parity and j
asked for 60 additional officers for I

of Support in Plans
For Thrift Week
New York, Nov. 24. —More than
300 city associations have sent word
to the campaign committee of the
Y. M. C. A.'s National Thrift Week
to be launched next January, that

these campaigns, begun in 1914, feel
that the 1920 thrift week is to he one
of the most successful since the work
was started.
The railroad associations have def
initely included the Y. M. C. A.
Thrift Week as a part of their an
nual program. There are more than
300 of these associations in the
United States. In more than 500 in
dustrial plants where *le Y. M. C.

Labor Convention
Looks Favorable Upon
Plumb's Railroad Plan
Cliicaso, Nov. 24. Glenn E.
Plumb was enthusiastically received
to-day by the National Labor Party
convention when he presented his
j plan for the nationalization of the
railroads of the country.
The first step in the adoption of
his plan, he declared, was "to change
the faces of our representatives in
Congress." His method of control,
he said, would reduce freight rates
40 per cent and thereby would help
to reduce the high cost of living.
The system wns defined by him as a
prolit-saving rather than a profit
sharing plan. Increased wages, he
added, did not beneiit the wage
earner if every raise resulted in
higher prices for the necessities of
He said that his plan was appli
cable to every public utility and to
every other industry in the coun
try, and that the states could apply
it to the public utilities. I* is ex
pected that the convention will for
mally endorse the plan.
