Capital Calling System Is Revamped by Women
WASHINGTON. Women in official society circles met hero tho other day
and discussed tho national capital's complex calling system with a vlow
to evolving a simpler and more satisfactory method of exchange of tho formal
tary of state; Mrs. White, wife of the
chief Justlco of the Supremo court, wives of cabinet officers and others.
Mrs. Flotcher voiced the sentiment of those present by declaring tho
necessity for a simpler calling system wvs Imperative. Everybody, Bhe said,
wants to return every call that Is mndo upon them, but there Is a limit of
hours In tho day and days In tho week.
"On her first afternoon nt home," said Mrs. Fletcher, "Mrs. Marshall had a
thousand calls and they have nveraged botween 300 and BOO each Wednesday
Blnco Her Blncero effort to return every call has been tho comment and
admiration of all Washington society, but how can anybody return In person
several thousand calls in one season? Mrs. Marsall's experience Is in greater
or less degroe duplicated by everjy official hostess In Washington."
Tho question of simplifying formal calling in Washington has been grow
ing pioro acute during the last ten years, but this mooting was tho first at
tempt at simplification.
American Youth Scramble for Places in Navy
IT takes a "jimmy" these days to break Into tho United States navy as a
plain, ordinary seaman; a stick of dynamltp is necessary to get in as an
apprentice or yeoman. Tho navy dopartmdnt and Its recruiting stations havo
"waiting Hats" containing hundreds of
names of young, husky yotlths "hank
ering" to go to sea.
Tho full, active membership of tho
navy Is limited by law to 51,500 men,
and there are that many enlisted men
now on tho pay rolls. For tho first
timo since tho Civil war the full quota
of men allowod by law has been en
listed. The bars as to fitness have not been
let down, and no men with physical
or mental defects have been enlisted,
but there has been good advertising. Tho tnles of tho cruises and tho details
of tho chances for obtaining an education, Bent out In pamphlet form, havo
swelled tho ranks so that tho bars had to be put up.
Tho greatest number of monthly enlistments, except in war timo, was
made in tho last six months slnco Secretary Daniels began his revolutionary
reforms In tho navy.
Perhaps tho chief cause for tho great Influx of fine, hardy young men Into
tho naval service In tho last few months was tho recent Mediterranean crulso
of the, great Atlantic fleet.
This crulso wan a regular pleasuro trip for tho young seamen, and It was
Intended that it should be such by tho navy department. Long stops woro
mado at all tho prlnclpnl cities on tho Mediterranean, whero shore leavo was
given. At tho different seaports tho American sailors wero entertained In
lavish s'tylo by naval and civic organizations, and In every way Bhown a gen
oral good time. x
Tales of cruises contained in letters sent back to friends from foreign
ports also fire tho Imagination of young, friends "back home." For instance
tho recruits at tho Chicago training station wero recently sent overland to
Bremerton, Wash. They were allowed a stop-over at Yollowstono park, and
other Interesting places. Soon after arriving nt Bremerton they wero assigned
to tho cruiser Now Orleans, which sailed for Mexican waters. On Its trip
south tho cruiser stopped at San Francisco, whore shoro leave was given to
tho youngsters. Now it is reported that as soon as tho Mexican trouble is
settled the Now Orleans will sail for tho Orient.
Discuss the Increasing Scarcity of Army Horses
THERE has been recently a discussion going on among tho army and navy
men on tho increasing scarcity of army horses. Tho army quartermasters,
who have to do with the purchasing of horses for military establishments, say
that there is really an alarming scar

... Ma-Jt f yiiS?
ing abroad. There aro not enough horses now to supply tho commands nt
If there wero to como an emorgency calling for a largo number of horses
tho war department would havo great difficulty In getting them. It Is said
that one reason for tho scarcity of horses is tho falling off of tho product
of thoso who aro raising horses. It Is unofficially declared that tho Increased
uso of automobiles has bad its influence on tho rearing of horses, desplto tho
assertions to tho contrary.
The motor truckc also sorlously affect tho market for draft animals, but
that has to do mostly with tho mulo, so far as tho army is concerned. Tho
mulo will always bo a necessity, dosplto tho Improvement which has been
mado In the motor trucks. Tho animal must bo used with tho troops In tho
field. Tho trucks will bo useful for supplying tho column In tho rear.
