TO BE NAMED FOR
Major General Goethals May
Be Named as Assistant to
Baker in Charge of All
(By Akioriated TrcM.)
Washington, Feb. 24. With the ad
ministration bill j-reating two addi?
tional assistant secretaries of war be
fore congress, Secretary Baker today
explained the functions to which his
new aids would be assigned. ,
He would not indicate wham he
had in njind for the posts, saying that
nominations were matters for the
president only, but names unofficially
suggested include those of Edward R.
Stettinus, now surveyor general of
the War department purchases', Major
General George W. Goethals, acting
quartermaster general, and Raymond
D. Fosdick, chairman of the commis
sion on training camp activities.
Mr. Baker said that Assistant Sec
retary Crowell would become the
direct understudy of the secretary and
assume the duties of the head of the
War department in his absence.
Goethals May Be Named.
The new second assistant will have
supervision of all "industrial and
commercial" activities of the War de
partment, acting in the name "of the
secretary on all matters of this char
acter and supervising the purchases of
The appointment of Mr. Stettinus
as secpnd assistant will be in line
with Mr. Baker's statement to a con
gressional committee that the place
of Mr, Stettinus in the department
was one of "growing functions."
In that connection, however, it was
recalled-today that recently the name
of General Goethals had been promi
nently mentioned as an assistant sec
ertary of war in discussions of
changes in the War department.
Under General Goethals, the quarter
master's department has been reor
ganized and its work enlarged.
Baker to Control Military.
The third assistant, Mr. Baker said,
will have direct supervision of all
nonmilitary activities of the soldier.
That function is now exercised very
largely by Mr. Fosdick as chairman
of the commission on training camp
The position of fourth assistant will
be held by John C Scofield, now as
sistant and chief clerk, ano as such,
in charge of administrative matters
not directly under the various bu
reaus and of the entire clerical per
sonnel of the department,
Mr. Baker's purpose is to transfer
to his new assistants many matters
of detail which now handicap him in
dealing with the broad policies it is
his duty to work out. In this con
nection it was noted that he has re
served to himself also all military

The section embraces 125 square
blocks of tenements occupied almost
exclusively by foreign born laborers,
40 per cent of whom are employed in

The witness read from a report pre.
pared by Young Men's Christian as

showed that the gross receipts of
each saloon in the district averages
$15,000 a year. This district now has
300 saloons or 75 more than in 1912.
Beeman introduced in evidence a

Witnesses for the packers declare
that the saloon is responsible for
much of the poverty and distress
among the foreign born unskilled la
borers employed in the stock yards.
One block in the section contains 13
saloons and is knowif as "whisky
Representatives of organized labor
on cross examining the witnesses
called by the packers endeavored to

YEARS OF WAR
Arkansai Governor in Speech
Before National Security
League Declare! I, W. W.
Chicago, Feb. 24,-According to
Governor Charles H. Brough of Ar
kansas, the judgment of official Wash
ington ia that there will be three
more years of war.
Fresh from a visit to the national
capital the governor mad this state
ment here today in a speech to the
congress of national service of Na
tional Security league.
"There is a new south that is
united and that is loyally backing up
the flag in this war, he said. "Do
you realize there is a bolsheviki in
this country just as there is in Rus
sia? Here it is known as the Indus
trial Workers of the World. They
are dwelling in the twilight of Ameri
can patriotism. There can be no twi
light zone you must be for the presi
dent or you are against the flag.
"I was in Washington recently and
it is the opinion of men there that
this war will last three years longer.
Germany in some respects is stronger
than sfle was three years ago. She
has 13,000,000 square miles of terri
tory and six times the food acreage
that she formerly did. She will also
come into the possession of large mu
nitions factories, because of the col
lapse of the Russian government."
