Commenting on the bill recently j
introduced by Congressman Clark, of (
Florida, providing that no enlisted (
| men. eitner private or uuu-vuui, u?
| required to salute any officer below
j the grade of brigadier general not *
connected with his own organization. ,
the Army and Navy Journal has the
i following to say:
"Nothing could be more destruc'
tive to the discipline and efficiency of
our armies. If it became a law such .
a proposal would open the door for ]
lack of that respect to superiors in 1
command that is the very foundation J
of all military discipline. If enlisted ,
men are relieved from the necessity ]
of showing proper respect to officers
.of a regiment other than their own, J
I they would not rdspect their own offl- ,
cere and would soon become inatten- ]
[tive and slouchy. it is often almost 1
impossible for a man to know 1
whether an officer is of his own regi- '
nient and therefore entitled to a
salute under Mr. Clark's plan. Endless
confusion and disrespect to superiors
would naturally follow. Such
a bill shows lack of knowledge of the
foundation of military discipline and
gives evidence of the socialistic spirit
that animates the Soldiers' and
Workmen's Committees which have
destroyed the discipline of the Russian
army. It is to be hoped that
such a dangerous proposal will be
promptly killed." i
GERMAN SOLDIERS' WIVES
i TREATED AS MERE BRUTES
The following story, translated,.,
from the Bremer Buerger-Zeitung, a
German newspaper, indicates the fuel
conditions and also shows how the
women folk of the soldiers are treated:
"A soldier's wife, who had gathered
wood in the common forest of
Waldkirch. near Freiburg, in Breisgau.
was sentenced for the offense in
the following terms:
" 'Mrs. Clara Ganter. on June 13.
1917. has removed from the common
forest of Waldkirch. Sec. I 23, one
faggot of dry fir twigs of the value
of 10 pfennig. .In punishment there
01 sne is senieuceu iu a uuc ui ? i
mark and one day's imprisonment.' i
"The husband of the culprit has|
been for thre# years at the front, she i
herself has four small children to
support in the direst poverty. Similar
reports of punishment should be
reported in greater numbers. Our
bureaucracy understands how to employ
this period of shortage of wood
and coal on a large scale for the
benefit of the treasury."
The recruits were being sworn in.
Everything went swimmingly until
the question was asked one of
"Have you ever been in prison?"
"No, sir," was the reply. "I've
never been in jail, but I don't mind
doing a few days if you think it is
