There ia Plenty of Food and Drink and Open-Air Life That Make the Weak Strong. Report Says. Lausanne, Switzerland, Nov. 24.- Swiss travelers coming from Ger s&any are offering here some explana tions regarding the "new formation!," which are soon marching out of Ger man town so often with bands and oolors flying. Jt has been supposed that these are reserves, but now it turns out they are something quite Juffercnt. ( ' Since the Ijejrinrtinjc f the war the CJemian military authorities have completely revised the system of supplying the front with fresh troops and also of training the class call d up for service. No fresh classes are any longer trained directly for service at the front. Training in the camps is for the Ftappen service; that is, for the lines of communication and the milt tary occupation of districts overrun. Roughly speaking, there are about two million men engaged on Ktappvn aervice, and their service there lasts, according to their state of healfti and other conditions, from three to six months." The results are the fullow- First mch taken direct from ' Civil life, weaken in health by city occu pations, and not inured to hardship, are given by thia system a fairly gen-i tie introduction to military service, j There is plenty of food and drink. eommuncation with homo is la.t dif ficult; service is not particularly ar duous, and in ad iition the men have the pleasant feeling that "the cnemy pas" Consequently, the great majority of letters written home by men on Flap pen service express a perfectly gen uine cheerfulness and good humor.

Mackensen's force on the Serbian front is now stated to consist vrey largely of corps formed on this plan. There is a psychological reason be hind this aystem. Men who have atood for a lone me on trenck srr- ' rice in a particular aertor are not, according to German experience, the beat troop to employ for vigorous offensive in that same aector. Men fight better on the offensive cover ground which ia new to them; they are not oppressed by the memory of interminable trench life just there, and their heels, metaphoribaiy speak ing, are nut clogged by the mud of the district Several phenomena are explained by this system. In the first place, men of such and auch a regiment may suddenly be found on the western front, whereas the regiment a few days ago was known to have been in action in the Fast. It does not in the least follow that the regiment has been hastily withdrawn from Russia owing to an imperative demand for men in the Champagne. It does, per-,, haps, follow that the leave-men of companies or regiments in the East have been formed into new companies and trios1 companies sent West. Again, it may happen that from certain section of a certain front there is a sudden and urgent demand for reinforcement. The Etapnen com mands will, upon the demand, divert to the threatened point the necessary numfr of new companies on passage through available districts of theaines of communication. Hence altr a long continued period of very heavy fighting, there will be found among the killed, wounded, and prisoners on a certain sector men apparently be longirg to all suits of different regi ments and army corps. The natural impression that the Cermans have been obliged to bring up a large num ber of whole raiment is thus by no means necessarily or always accu rate.

Washington, Nov. rDifferences between the Departments of State and Justice attracted attention here today and President Wilson may have to take a hand in the matter before it is settled. The trouble grew out of the giving out for publication a statement by the Department of State charging Captain Boy-Ed and the Austrian minister with being connected with the conspiracy to furnish coal and supplies to the German commerce raiders. The relations of the two depart- ments of government are considerably strained. It has been agreed between Attor ney General Gregory and Secretary McA3oo that hereafter the State De- partrnent shall not give olI a state- ment without the consent of the De- partrnent of Justice.

Victory or ! defeat often hinire upon the success )--or faiure of that kick and it I should be left in the football rules, j Chicago scored a 14 to 13 victory i over Wisconsin this year because it made both goals after touchdown, whereas Wisconsin made only one. Vale ami Lehigh each scored a touch down in their game, hut Yale was the victor, by one point because it kicked a goal after touchdown and Lehigh didn't. Those are only two of scores of incidents this year where the kicking of a goal won a hard fought game. . . It was mighty hard for Wisconsin. Lehi;rh and the other teams to lose l,y just one point, but they had the same chance to score tht p-rlt as did their rivals. Because they failed was no fault of the mles it was the fault of their kickers.

PURPOSE PREPAR ING VESSELS TO HELP RAIDERS Transferred (orgou to Gej-auux Warships in the Atlantic Ocean Trial Still , in Progress. New Vork, Nov. 24. William Rand, counsel for Karl Buenz and as sociates of the Hamburg America Steamship lines, admitted this after noon the spending of the sum of ii, 11 8.&7i.76 for the purpose of out- letting, vessels to furnish supplies t he German commerce raiders. This admission was for the pur pose of keeping the government from introducing 1 00 or more witness whom Mr. Rarid designated as gro ceries and hardware clerks. At the afternoon session Fritz Sol kenburg gave a graphic description of the transferring of the cargo at sea to the Cerman "warships in the Atlantic Ocean, September 13, 1914. A storm was coming up -when a British warship hove in sight. The commander of the German ship, Capt.
