Washington, Dec. 6. The median
ical condition of America's fleet has
undergone little improvement since
the termination of the war and the
engineer performance of the individ individual
ual individual ships "has not been satisfactory,"
Rear Admiral Griffin, chief of the bu bureau
reau bureau of engineering says in his an annual
nual annual report just made public at the
naval department.
The navy personnel, however, is
commended by the admiral for having
"successfully grappled with this sit situation
uation situation with at least no retrograde
movement." Admiral Griffin adds,
however, that the operation of the
ships with respect to their mechan
ical workings is not by any means
what is desired although it has been
better than "was reasonably to be ex
pected", under the conditions.
Admiral Griffin attributed the trou
bles of the engineering staff mainly
to an inadequacy of operating person personnel,
nel, personnel, but explains that the influx of
raw recruits coupled with the con constant
stant constant addition of new vessels to the
navy list has increased the problems.
The lack of men reacted on the en
gineering bureau in two ways, the
admiral says.
The number of repair jobs usually
classed as navy-yard work was great greatly
ly greatly increased due to the decreased skill
in operation while the yards were, in
addition, called upon to perform much
work which ordinarily would be ac
complished by the forces of indi-
viduel ships. The appropriations for
the upkeep of the fleet were, in many
cases, therefore, used for the per
formance of work ordinarily done by
enlisted men. The unusual demand
served to reduce funds available for
major repair work.
In addition to the extra cost caus
ed by the personnel situation, the ad admiral
miral admiral says a number of other facts
combined to increase the difficulties
with which the bureau was confront
ed. There was a large amount of up
keep work, 1 eft over from the war
time operation the report says and
with this came closely pared appro
priations in the face of increased la
bor and material costs.
The navy pay scale also has served
to reduce the number of skilled and
technical employees who were able to
obtain higher wages elsewhere. The
situation, the admiral declares, is one
which would occasion concern even
under ordinary circumstances.
Development of the navy's shore
establishment has been aided substan
tially, Admiral Griffin says, through
the cessation of work on wartime ex
tensions in the plants and the conse
quent reversion of those unused ma
terials and equipment to the general
stocks allowed by the appropriation

Mexico's New President Besiezed by

Office Seekers and Jog
Hunters Galore
(Associated Press)
Mexico City, Dec. 6. In a tiny,
rudely-furnished office on the second
floor of a building undergoing repairs
General Alvaro Obregon, as president-elect,,
has received daily hun
dreds of men and women who came
here to plead their cause with him be
fore his inauguration. Most of them
were office seekers and claimants for
political favor and they spent long
hours waiting to tell General Obregon
in what particular way they helped
him in his ascendency and why they
should be rewarded. Their numbers
were so great that the president-elect
was at his office seven hours a day,
seven days a week and most of that
timew as consumed in a patient hear
ing cf claims.
following an arduous campaign
which culminated in his overwhelming
election last September, General Ob
regon came to Mexico City and es
tablished headquarters in the office on
Avenida Madero where his candidacy
was conducted. The office, small at
best, was divided by a cloth partition
into a private sanctum for the gen
eral and compact working quarters
f or his several secretaries
Outside there were several ante antechambers
chambers antechambers which, from 9:30 o'clock in
the morning when the president-elect
arrived for work, until 7 o'clock at
night, with a couple of hours allowed
for lunch, were crowded with people
There were numerous doors, to
pass before the inner chamber is en
tered and at each stood two guards
who questioned closely all comers
These with apparent legitimate reas reasons
ons reasons for their presence were allowed
to proceed; the others were turned
back to join the ever-present throngs
in the corridors.
General Obregon has been quoted
as saying that one of the contributing
elements to Mexico's unrest has, been
he popular belief that a successfu
political candidate must reward every
one of his supporters. He has de described
scribed described the system as pernicious be
cause, in the event that such rewards
are not forthcoming, the erstwhile
supporter becomes an enemy and
ows the seeds of dissension and trou
ble. It is his wish, it is said, to abol
ish the practice; to allow the repub-
ic's president absolute freedom in the
choice of his servants at least to the
extent that failure to reward substan
tially every man who was his booster
does not mean possible revolution
But the hundreds who gathered out-
Ide his office" daily apparently knew
nothing of this policy or if they did
they held on in the hope that excep
iens wouldbe made, because their
numbers never .diminished despite the
seven hours of conferences which the
president-elect held every day. Some
of them apparently have no other oc
cupation. By way of diversion, Gen
gave oauy concerts in wie counyaru.

and sung about the plum pudding of

formidable rival for epicurean favor

It consisted of beef or mutton made
into a broth, thickened with brown
bread, which was then thoroughly
boiled after raisins, currants, prunes,
cloves, mace and ginger had been add added.

Edinburgh in 1791, announcing her herself

city, gives a recipe for making it,
while Brand, the popular antiquary,
tells how he partook of it at a Christ Christmas

English gentleman in 1801, but it has

ABJOBIE was the nr3t girl
every boy called on when
he got home for the
Christmas holidays. Yes,
every boy who had gone
away .to school or to col college
lege college always came to Mar Mar-jorle's
jorle's Mar-jorle's house first when
the Christmas holidays be
gan, though there were
exceptions, of course.
Many pf them, coming home at the
same time, on the same train, would
agree to call together.
Then they would have a good time,
singing, talking, laughing. Marjorie
was such a good sort. The whole
"bunch" liked her.
She played the piano well for danc
ing and had the kind of voice which
made others want to gather around
the piano and Join .In the chorus.
In truth, without Marjorie the
bunch would have been oftentimes
very lonely, very restless and wretched.
Marjorie danced well, too, and if one
wanted a girl to come up to a prom or
a class dance Marjorie would always
fit In anywhere. Then, too, she
wouldn't be mad If a fellow asked an another

Marjorie wasn't jealous of any of

they regarded her good sorts as she
was a good sort. They passed the time
for her merrily as she did for them.
They were Jolly good companions as
she was a Jolly good companion.
So it went on. And another Christ Christmastime
mastime Christmastime came along and Marjorie's
house was the center of the gayety.
It was the night before Christmas.
The "bunch' were taking around their
Christmas presents. They were going
to call on Marjorie last because then
they would stay there for a while.
They all had presents for Marjorie,
typical presents from members of a
"bunch" to a friend of the "bunch."
There were several boxes of candy
(which the "bunch" would help eat),
and there were some books, which per perhaps
haps perhaps some of the. "bunch" later would
borrow and read.
One of the "bunch" has gone to Mar Marjorie's

How Confederate Soldiers Treated an
Union Franc-Tireur
(Boston Transcript)
The story of John Burns of Gettys-
burg is worth telling again. He was
an old soldier of the war of 1812

his age, but managed to get in as a

foe; and hefe the town people made
mm a constable. When lee s scouts
approached Gettysburg in June, 1863,
John Burns went out with a party of
volunteers to fight them, but the
party was turned back by the Union
cavalry. Finally, into the town, on
june 20, came General Early and his
Confederate troops; and here was
John BuTnSf &s constable, in the mid-
the street, ordering them off in
of the law! The Confed-
erates locked him up for asserting his
authority in opposition to that of
their provost guards. But they went
on to York, and out came Burns and
began to arrest Confederate strag-
Llers inplndinp- a.rhnnlin Rpv. Mr.
(-win. who HisnntrW. Rut as

army had the language of history,
"relieved the veteran from his self-
imposed duty of facing the Army of
Northern Virginia single handed,"
old John Burns got a gun from a
WOunded Union soldier and went to

fighting civilian, up against a tree and
shoot him, a la Hun? Not at all. They
let him go to his own house, where
his wounds were dressed by a Con-
federate surgeon; and there he was
left when the Confederate tide swept
back and left the town and country
once more in Union hands. John
Burns was one of the local heroes
when Lincoln came to Gettysburg for
the dedication of the monument, as
T. H. B. notes, but he took to wan
dering about the country and was
picked up in New York in 1871, in a
state institution, and very ill. He
was sent home to Gettysburg, and

After the committee reports and a

but most interesting manner, Mrs.
Tydings gave ai verbal report of the
convention. Perhaps of most interest
to Ocalans was her description of a
talk by Dr. McClane, formerly one of
our fellow townsmen, telling of the
marvelous improvemnts in the reform
school since he has been in charge.
There are about 400 boy3 in his cus cus-today,

old. The youngest of these he hopes,

nery tannery on the place. All the boys are
required to work one day and go to"
school the next, alternately. There is
a dairy, farming and many other
useful occupations. The -hospital is
being built by the boys themselves.
They are accustomed to bathing regu
larly and have clean beds to sleep in.
There is an orchestra and many other
forms of profitable enjoyment. Dur-
ing the time that Dr. McClane has
been there only five boys have run
away and three of them were negroes.
While in Tallahassee Mrs. Tydings
cften saw Dr. and Mrs. Bunvan Stenh-

was there that all the meetings of the
ieaeration were held, lie and his wile

tnat there is no place in the world
like Ocala.
Mrs. Tydings gave as the outstand-

tion, thrift and Americanization, and
she was very much impressed with
