under the disadvantages of a bum
mail arrangement. The postals with
out a postoffice and the soldiers have
to row or sail across the bay to South-
port to get their mail. This involves
much time and. inconvenience, espec
ially when the weather Is bad. It
would seem that the steamer which
carries the mail fom Wilmington to
Southport might pioceed from the
wharf at that place across to the
wharf at the government reservation
and land the mail for the soldiers at
their door. About 25 or 30 bags of
mail daily go to Southport for the sol
diers and it looks like an across-bay
service should be arranged.
IN THE NEWS
Robert S. Lovett, who has been
named chief of the division of better
ments and additions of the railroad
Administration, haj long been a prom
inent figure in the American railroad
world. "Judge Lovett," as he is pop
ularly known, is a Texan born and
Texan bred lawyer, whose profession
al practice early became identified
with Texas railroads. He was one of
the- "finds" of the late E. H. Harrl
man, who made him general counsel
of his great system of railroads. Fol
lowing the death of Mr. Harriman he
became the executive head of the
Union Pacific and the Southern Pa
cific systems. It has been said that
Harriman was first attracted to Lov
ett by the hinnescs of his face. "A
man who worries about his business
all the time Is thin in the face," Mr
Harriman is reported to have said. "I
want just such a man." Since the
commencement of the war Mr. Lovett
has given much of his time to the
service of the Red Cross.
