WONT CUT OFF THE

Senator Fletcher has received the

Washington, June 27.
Senator D. U. Fletcher, U. S. Senate.
My dear Senator: Replying to your
letter of June 25th, addressed to the
director general of railroads. So far
as I know, it is not the purpose of the
railroad administration to discourage
passenger travel to Florida, or else elsewhere,
where, elsewhere, during the coming winter,
although ; you of ; course understand
that the most important duty of the
railroads is to use their power and
equipment in the movement of men
and ,' material "necessary to help win
the war and if conditions : should
make .it necessary the director gen general
eral general would not hesitate to discourage
travel and the people of Florida and
elsewhere woul daccept the situation
So far as can he foreseen, how
ever, there is ho reason why the nec necessary
essary necessary transportation facilities should
not be provided next winter, as they
were last winter. Very truly,
Gerrit Fort, Asst. Director.
The president of the Commercial
Telegraphers' Union has called for a
strike of Western Union telesrraDh
operators next Monday morning, and
President Wilson has recommended
that Congress immediately enact
legislation enabling the government
to take over the telegraph and tele
phone companies. This is another
war measure, and one almost imper
atively necessary. The Western Union
has often had trouble with its men.
Their strikes are almost neriodical.
but this is no time to have one.
Those who want; to drill in the.hdme

given that privilege. There is nothing
holding them .back. However, have
you thought, of ,i the encouragement
the ; Sunday battalion drills give. to
the hundreds of. people outsider the
companies to break the rules of the
Sabbath? It furnishes a place for
them to go and gives them an excuse
to get away from home or church.
We -have been watching church
goers for forty years and we have
observed that those who want to go
to church don't excuse themselves if
they don't go. Those who do not
want to go have not been waiting all
these years for a home guard drill to
excuse they from staying away.

Scoffs at Air Raids on New York
"There are several popular mis misconceptions

"Still, another misconception is
that submarines may enter New York
or other harbors. Such an act would
be to commit suicide, the water not
being deep enough for concealment.

as economy permits. fv

reasons which it would take too long
to "explain they are obliged to oper operate

"The general public is also apt to

submarines, which is an error. Ex Experience
