War Pressnts Stalemate, Na Dedsltn Before
1919, Says Congressman McCermick.
'The Germans are not win

"Neither are we,"
That is the statement of Me

Congress from Illinois, who has
just returned from a visit to the
European war zone Continuing
Mr McCormick said: '
"The war presents a stale
mite from which we are unahle to
extricate ourselves, because of
the collapse of Russia and the
unreadiness of the United
StateV No where in Europe did
I.find an informed - soldier or
public man who believed that a
military decision could be achie
ved before 19 19. When the
- 'United States might add effec-
tively to pressure on the Centra
empires. There is practically
no hope that Russia can be ise
ful during 1918. Russia is ho
disordered that she cannot
make war. Happily, in all pro
bability neither can she make

Tne Gonernment has Made Gsnsious Provi
sions for all Enlisted Men and Dependants
The Secretary of the Treasury.
To the officers, and enlisted men
and women of the army atfd
navy of the United States and
their relatives:
The Secretary of the Treasury
through the Bureau of War Risk
Insurance, has been charged
with the administration of the
War Insurance Law enacted by
the Congress as a measure of
justice to the men and women
who have been called to give
their lives, if need be. in the ser
vice of their country.
I wish to acquaint you with
the benefits and privileges which
vour Government has placed at
your disposal. It is essential
hat you and your families at
home should know of your and
their rights under this law in or
der that, full advantage may be
taken of them.
To care tor the wife and child
ren of- the enlisted man during
'us service, the War Insurance
Uw compels him to contribute
ip to one half of his pay for
their support. The Government
on application, will generously
add to this 'an allowance of from
5 to $50 a'month, according to
ihe size of the family. Moreover
it the enlisted man will make
some further provisions himself
for.a dependent parent, brother,
sister, or grandchild, they may
be included, in the Government
If, as a result of injuries in
curred or disease contracted in
the line of duty, an officer or en
listed man or an Army or Navy
sion is made for compensation of
from, 30 10 $100 a month to him,
and, should he die, compensation
of from $20 to $75 a month will
be paid to his wife, his child, or
his widowed mother.
In order, however, fully to pro
tect each person ana family, Con
gress has made it possible for ev
ery soldier, sailor, snd nurse to
obtain life and total-disability
insurance. This insurance, ap
plies to injuries received while
he or she is in the service or af
ter he or ahe shall have left it.
Exposure to the extra dangers
of war makes the coit of life, in
surance in private life insurance
companies prohibitive. It was
therefore, a plain duty and obli
gation for the Government to as
sume the risk of ins,urnghun
dreds of thousands of our soldiers
and sailors who are making the
supreme sacrifice. Under this
law, every soldier and sailor and
nurse, commissioned and enlisted
and of any age, has the right,
between now and February 12
1918. to take out life and total-
disability insurance up to.$10,000
at very low cost, with the Gov
ernment without medical examr
inatibn. This right is purely
optional. The soldiers and sail
ors are not compelled tovtake in
surance, but if they desire to ex
ercise the right, they must do so
Oefore the 12th of Februrary,
1918. The cost ranges from 65
cents monthly, at the age of 21
to $1 20 monthly at the age of
51, for each $1,000 of insurance.
This is a small charge on a man's
pay small in proportion to the'
benefits it may bring. - The pre
miums will be deducted from his
