TANK CORPS GROWING
Recruits Arrive Daily at Gettys
Long Hikes in Heavy Marching Order
Fit Men for Duty With Persh
Camp Colt, Gettysburg, Pa. The
American tank corps continues to grow
and develop. Recruits are still com
ing in and the men already 'here are
being drilled to within an inch of their
lives. This is the preliminary discip
line and the physical drill which will
fit the men for the strenuous life of a
"tanker" overseas. Twenty-mile hikes
In heavy marching order are almost
daily occurrences. "
Although the work is hard, the men
like it. They realize their need of this
heavy drill and exercise. Negotiat
ing the gray steel monsters over No
Man's Land is distinctly not a job for
a man whose muscles are not almost
as hard as steel itself. And for an
erstwhile civilian's muscles to become
sufficiently hardened takes time and
training. . - , -
The daily work, the fresh air, plen
ty of sleep and the excellent daily ra
tions are doing wonders in producing
as fine a bunch of real fighting men as
can be found anywhere. The officers'
school will be continued indefinitely.
As fast as men complete the prescribed
course, others will take their places.
From now on, all commissioned offi
cers will be selected from the ranks.
The tank corps is a progressive
unit. Every once in a while a bat
talion will disappear overnight, bound
for ''somewhere." Recruits will fill
their places and the work of training
will move right along. New officers,
trained simultaneously with the men,
will command the disappearing bat
talion. . .
BEST SHOD FIGHTERS
The men stationed at Camp Sher
man will be among the best shod fight
ers in the entire world. An experi
mental test to find the average size and
width of the shoes used and the
amount of leather consumed showed
that by using a device known as the
Resco shoe-fitting device the shoes are
made more comfortable for the men
and leather is saved. Here is shown
the device being put to practical use.
Each man wears two pairs of wool
socks when fitted for the shoes.
SALUTES PHOTO OF PREMIER
Instinctive Action of Officer Reveals
Respect of French for
Paris. Little unconscious acts often
reveal the real measure of the popu
larity of a great leader.
In the photographer's showcase not
far from the fashionable Pare Mon
ceau there is among other pictures an
excellent almost life-size head of M.
Clemenceau. A young French officer
who was passing the shop the other
day glanced casually at the showcase.
Perceiving the picture of his chief he
instinctively raised his hand to a sa
lute and passed on unaware that his
spontaneous tribute had been observed.
In the early days of the long-range
gun bombardment of Paris, says the
Matin, it was. stated that the shells
were made from a new type of steel
alloyed with vanadium, which gave it
exceptional properties. But analysis
has shown that the shells are made of
ordinary nickel and chrome steel, such
as is in current use for- making guns
both In France and Germany and
whose properties -are well known.

OUR 'SAVED FOOD
FED THE ALLIES
Food Administrator Writes Presi
dent America Conserved 141,
000,000 Bushels Wheat.
CREDIT DUE TO WOMEN.
Meat and Fat Shipments Increased by
Conservation measures applied by
the American people enabled the Unit
ed States to ship to the Allied peoples
and to our own forces overseas 141,
000,000 bushels of wheat and 844,600,
000 pounds of meat during the past
year, valued In all at $1,400,000,000,
This was accomplished in the face of a
serious food shortage in this country,
bespeaking the wholeheartedness and
patriotism with which the American
people have met the food crisis abroad,
Food Administrator Hoover, in a let.
ter to President Wilson, explains how
the situation was met The voluptary
conservation program fostered by the
Food Administration enabled the piling
up of the millions of bushels of wheat
during 1917-18 and the shipment of
meat during 1917-18.
The total value of all food ship,
meuts to Allied destinations amounted
to $1,400,000,000, all this food being
bought through or in collaboration
with the Food Administration. These
figures are all based on official reports
and represent food exports for the
harvest year that closed June 30, 1918,
The shipments of meats and fats
(Including meat products, dairy prod
ucts, vegetable oils, etc.,) to Allied des
tinations were as follows:
Fiscal year 1916-17... .2466,500,000 lbs.
Fiscal year 1917-13. . ..3,011,100,000 lbs.
Increase 844,600,000 lbs.
Our slaughterable animals at the be
ginning of the last fiscal year were not
appreciably larger than the year be
fore and particularly in hogs; they
were probably less. The Increase In
shipments Is due to conservation and
the extra weight of animals added by
The full effect of these efforts began
to bear their best results In the last
half of the fiscal year, when the ex
ports to the Allies were 2,133,100,000
pounds, as against 1,266,500,000 pounds
in the same period of the year before.
This compares with an average of
801,000,000 pounds of total exports for
the? same half years In the three-year
pre-war period. ;
In cereals and cereal products re
duced to terms of cereal bushels our
shipments to Allied destinations have
Fiscal year 1916-17.. 259,900,000 bushels
Fiscal year 1917-18.. 340,800,000 bushels
Increase 80,900,000 bushels
Of these cereals our shipments of
the prime breadstuffs In the fiscal year
1917-18 to Allied destinations were:
Wheat 131,000,000 bushels and of rye
13,900,000 bushels, a total of 114,900,
The exports to Allied destinations
during the fiscal year 1916-17 were:
Wheat 135,100,000 bushels and rye
2,300,000 bushels, a total of 137,400,000
bushels. In addition some 10000,000
bushels of 1917 wheat are now In port
for Allied destinations or en route
thereto. The total shipments to Allied
countries from our last harvest of
wheat will be therefore, about 141,000,
000 bushels, or a total of 154,900,000
bushels of prime breadstuffs. In ad
dition to this we have shipped some
10,000,000 bushels to neutrals depend
ent upon us, and we have received
some Imports from other quarters.
"This accomplishment of our people
in this matter stands out even more
cltafly If we bear In mind that we had
available In the fiscal year 1916-17
from net carry-over and as surplus
over our normal consumption about
200,000,000 bushels of wheat which we
were able to export that year without
trenching on our home loaf," Mr.
Hoover said. "This last year, however,
owing to the large failure of the 1917
wheat crop, we had available from net
carry-over and production and imports
only Just about our normal consump
tion. Therefore our wheat shipments
to Allied destinations represent ap
proximately savings from our own
"These figures, however, do not fully
convey the volume of the effort and
sacrifice made during the past year
by the whole American people. De
spite the magnificent effort of our agri
cultural population In planting a much
Increased acreage in 1917, not only was
there a very large failure in wheat,
but also the corn failed to mature prop
erly, and our corn is our dominant crop.
"I am sure," Mr. Hoover wrote in
concluding his report, "that all the
millions of our people, agricultural as
well as urban, who have contributed
to these results should feel a very
definite satisfaction that in a year of
universal food shortages in the north
ern hemisphere all of those people
Joined together against Germany have
come through Into sight of the coming
harvest not only with wealth and
strength fully maintained, ,but with
only temporary periods of hardship. -

various sections of our people the

trades, urban or agricultural popula
