Will Require $130,000 More to Feed
U. S Soldiers Next Year
By Associated Press.
Washington, Dec. 14.—The cost of
the American army ration has increased
to such an extent on account of the
European war that it will cost $130,-
000 more to feed the soldiers during tho

has so increased that SIOO,OOO moid!
must be paid next year for army foragu
than this year. '
These are some of the results of tho
war affecting the army which to-dav
made their appearance." The navv also
is attected. The war freight lates have
made it impossible for the navy to meet
out of its appropriations the cost of
sending coal to its various stations.

Held in Texas Last Month With Satis-;
factory Results
By Associated Press,
Washington, Dec. 14.—A sham bat
tle with real ball cartridges in place of
the usual blanks was staged by Briga
dier General Pershing down in Texas
last month with remarkably instructive
and satisfactory results. ' The battle
was on a large scale, participated in bv ;
the Sixth, Sixteenth and Twentieth in
fantry, one squadron of the Fifteenth
cavalry, one battalion of the Sixth field
artillery and Company 1, signal corps.,
Out. on the prairie near El t'aso these
forces attacked the enemv, supposed to'
consist of two regiments of infantry
and two battalions of field artillery.
But the position of this force was out
lined by a great number of target
more than 800 silhouette figures, rep-"
resenting soldiers and electrically con
trolled, w'liich received the impact of
about 100,(100 ball cartridges. Certain,
important defects in organization and
equipment were developed and altogeth
er the exercise is said to be of incal
culable value in an educational way.
Considering the other matters it ha* (
to worry about a transatlantic liner is
liable to run right through an iceberg
without stopping.
