Zhc ^Tribune Tuesday October 24, 1916. The great offensive on the Somme, with its steady progress and its shattering of the fear that the Germans had us deadlocked in the West, has put heart into us all. The capture of Combles and Thiepval has had a mighty influence on neutrals and has checked German peace schemes in America. American opinion is now that our foe is being beaten and that they had better not try to intervene on behalf of peace at present. Rut the most welcome effect of all, outside our Empire, is the change our, efforts are making on the French people as a whole. While statesmen and generals in France have seen that we were doing wonders on the side of the Entente, the French people were asking why we were keeping large armies in France and apparently doing nothing with them while the French were struggling and bleeding at Verdun. Now they know and are tilled with admiration (usual business visit. I gratitude over thc'glorious achievements of our wonderful soldiers. The "Times" Correspondent in Pjiris has given a vivid picture of the state of French feeling after thefalfof Tliiep vat] and Combles. The French papers were full of the praises of British bravery and efficiency. Generals, journalists and men high in political life joined to swell the happy! 'horns. What these public men are saying all France is saying. I his is a happy augury for the time when peace omes. France 'should on every account be our close friend, and our suffering by her side and doing our full share of the dreadful work will strongly cement the friendship between the two peoples. # —:o: — The Marine Products Board through the Courtesy of Mr. John Cancino, are displaying samples of Beche de mer which they have imported from Hong Kong. There are as many as 12 varieties, and their marked value vary from about $30— $150 a picul—a picul equals 133J lbs. The specimen are all ticketed with their market prices so that those interested can see which variety is the most desirable to catch. As our waters abound with Beche de mer, we hope that an enterprising merchant will take up the business and add Beche de mer to our list of exports.

Galicia and in the Dobrudja region of Roumania the armies of the Cen tral powers have successfully taken the offensive against their opponets. They are also holding the Allies in check in Northern Macedonia and are continuing the fighting on the Transylvania Roumanian frontier. Crown Prince Rupprecht assuming the offensive on the Somme front in France has, according to lierlin, recaptur pd from the British the great er part of ground lost several days ago between Eaucourt L'Abbaye and LeBarque, be tween the Pozieres-Bapaume road and Gueudecourt and towards Beaucourt. The Germans have also successfully withstood British attacks near Courcelletleand LeSars and on ihc Bapauine Pozier es road. Paris reportsonlv artillt ry activity on the Somme but London chroniclesthe repulse with heavy casualties of a German attack in the Thiep val region. On the easfcm front the Teutons have stormed Rus sian positions on the left bank of the Narayuvka Ri ver southeast of Lemberg and held the conquered ground against counter attacks 14 officers and 3050 men and 11 machine guns were taken by Prince Leopolds troops. In Volhynia the fighting continues with varying re suits, both the Austro Ger mans and Russians claiming repulse of attacks on various sectors^ To the north of Kiselin a stubborn battle is being wag ed with no decision yet hav ing been .reached. Field Mar shal Von Mackensen again has resumed his drive towards the Constanza Bucharest railway where Berlin reports tlu; fighting to be lively. Bucharest admits that the Roumanian left wing along the Black sea coast has been thrown back. Petrograd re ports that the Teutonic at tacks were repulsed with heavy losses and that the battle continues. The Roumanians are fighting hard to drive the enemy back through the frontier passes into Traosylvaaia. Bucharest reports the beginning of an offensive in the Ottus Valley northeast of Kronstadt and the tak ing of Mount Sarnul east of Rotherthurn Pass south of Hermanstadt. Between theAncre River and the Pozieres-Hapaume road on the Somme front British troops after successfully chocking an offensive movement by Prince Rupreclits forces attacked successfully and pushed forward from 300 to 500 yards on a front of 5,000 yards. The advance was made between Le Sars and the Schwaben Redoubt which was the scene of the earlier at tack by the Germans. General HaigS men captured Stuff and Regina trenches advance posts north and northeast of Schwa ben Redoubt, taking several hundred prisoner*. The Germans attacked strongly the French positions at Sailly Saillessel on tht Bapaume Peronne road as well as positions between Biaches and LaMaisonnette, near Peronne. The at tackers were repulsed generally but Paris admits they gained a footing north of Blaise Wood. The French succeeded in at tacks further south and gained possession of a wood north of Chaulmes. On the Danube the Germans, Bulgarians and Turks forced their way into the Kntente positions south of Rachova. In Serbia south of Monastir the Serbians continue to advan ce against the stubborn resistan ce of the Bulgarians. Having crossed the Cerna River in the bend at Brod they are now about four miles north of that place. French troops, it is unofficially reported, are aiding the Serbians along the Fiorina Monastir railway. Advertise in The Tribune. October 24th, 1916. London, 23rd. Governor, Bahamas.

The only steel that serves is manganese steel, again made in England. Sir Robert Hadfield, of Sheffield, put his brains, for no less than a decade, into the making of this most wonderful alloy, iuto which alone we can safely put our soldiers' brains to day. Our helmet, weighing only two pounds, is bullet proof to a VVebley automic pistol at five yards ; every helmet now supplied to the troops must be, and is, proof against a shrapnel bullet, forty-one to the pound, with a striking velocity of 750ft. per second. Wearing my precious specimen "of this helmet from which I can scarcely bear to be parted at night and which I owe, as a kind of *mementino, to the Ministry of Munitions, I have been freely and repeatedly bashed over the head with a heavy poker, without injury. It can be laid on the floor and thus struck with all one's might, and though the line of the blow may be depressed, this amazing steel does not give. Accordingly I now call upon all the hatters and outfitters who have long been displaying and selling helmets and body shields, not tested, not made of manganese steel, and deadly to the wearer, to withdraw all such murderous rubbish forthwith. Reputable hatters have offered our offices, at a guina apice, things that may have cost any thing between eighteen-pence and two shillings, made of corrugated material—of all the imbecilities—which splintered when struck, and were in every way worse than worthless. All soldiers* condemnation of armour, based upon their experience with such things, or with the first helmets supplied to the troops l upon which reports were, of course, asked for, is to be set aside as irrelevant. The authorities %  should forthwith prohibit together the sale of this untested and destructive rubbish At the Ministry of Munitions I have seen piled up scores of riddled helmets of this class. They should be tested, as I demanded last November, upon skulls po-t mortem, an*l condemned accor dingly—not upon the living heads of our heroes. As for body shields, last November I protest ed against some on sale. Many have been, and are, made of mild steel. Such'are bought, tried, condemned by officers at the front, to whom steel is just steel, and so no progress is made. Secondly, the shape of the helmet hat been considered. The French helmet struck me as having too vertical a front. If we give the projectile a smoath rounded,obique surface to strike we immensely aid the inherent resistance of the steel. Our helmet is accordingly low in pitch, and is much less likely than the* French helmet to be imitated in women's headgear, but it serves its purpose better. Obviously the shape of a policeman's or fireman's helmet would be unsuitable here, and every fraction of an inch that the helmet rises above the scalp is a disadvantage. IMPORTANCE OF CR.ANIAL SURGERY. But, thirdly, we cannot simply clap a cap of steel upon a living head and be content. Accordingly, in the British helmet we have really a double structure. It is, first, a soft cap, bounded all round its edge with thick rubber studs— now made hollow for greater resilience. This cap has a double lining of felt and wadding, so that even if the helmet, at point blank range may be pierced, the scalp is guarded from the steel. Upon this padded cap is poised the casque of steel. The interval between the two serves for ventilation, especially now that we have inserted some netting in the crown, so that there really is a route for the air. Even so, perhaps, our ventilation is inferior to, that of the French helmet, which has an aperture for the purpose under tlfe charming crest that runs sagittallyover it; but that aper ture is a weak place and not worth while. How to colour such an object ? If we simply paint it khaki or ortherwise, it reflects.the sun's ravs, and the moon's rays still worse, to the wearer's disadvan tage. The surface is now sand ed and roughened so that it can no longer act as a mirror. My fjiend Professor E. B. Poulto.i of Oxford, pointed out very ear ly in the war that the flat round discs which constitute the ab surd caps worn by our men, are well calculated to reflect the light and reveal themselves. As the greatest living-authority on the protective colouratior of animals, clearly he was the man to consult, none the less as his own splendid son, who has giv en his life for us all, would doubtles have been saved had he worn such a helmet as our men have to day. The helmet is fix ed with a strap under the chin, and that is now made adjust able, like a boy's cricket belt, but without the metal point of an ordinary buckle. Also, as the edges of the helmet were injur ing the temples of the next men's heads, in the close company of the trenches, a steel binding is now attached all round to blunt the fim and avert such acci dents. Our soldiers have one serious, tragic, magnificient fault. They are too brave. A young coloAel in Staffordshire, presiding at a recent lecture of mine to officers, said he preferred his cap to the Continued on Inelde •

By DR. C. W. SALEEBY.
(From the London Daily Chronicle.)
LATE last summer, after the
ghastly failure of our "vie
tories" at Loos and Neuve Chap
elle, many of us who count
every soldier sacred urged that
our men should be armoured.
The French had evidently pro-
fited by their helmet, and no
other reply than armour to the
machine-gun was then or yet is
in existance.
But in one of the reviews in
November 1 argued that the
French helmet might be much
improved upon, and suggested
experiment as to kind of steel
curvature of crown, and internal
lining with'respect to type of
wound that might occur
naming Professor Arnold of
Sheffield, Sir Joseph Tnomson,
and my illustrious friend, Sir
Victor Horsley, as authorities
who should be respectively con
suited. A member of Parliament
drew attention to these three de-
mands in a question in the
House and was told that they
would be attended to. ,
THE WONDERFUL "SOVP
PLATE."
All I asked, and more, has
been devotedly done by the
Ministry of Munitions. A point
I missedhaving only had the
French helmet to study, at that
time, through a shop window-
was its construction in parts,
a radical error, by no means
conservative of the soldiers
skull. Our helmet is thus made
v one piece, being none other
than a sheet of tested steel,
moulded into the uncomely but
blessed form "of a soup-plate."
But as to my three points.
The only steel that serves is
manganese steel, again made in
England. Sir Robert Hadfield,
of Sheffield, put his brains, for
no less than a decade, into the
making of this most wonderful
alloy, iuto which alone we can
safely put our soldiers' brains
to day. Our helmet, weighing
only two pounds, is bullet proof
to a VVebley automic pistol at
five yards ; every helmet now
supplied to the troops must be,
and is, proof against a shrapnel
bullet, forty-one to the pound,
with a striking velocity of 750-
ft. per second. Wearing my pre-
cious specimen "of this helmet
from which I can scarcely bear
to be parted at night and which
I owe, as a kind of *mementino,
to the Ministry of Munitions, I
have been freely and repeatedly
bashed over the head with a
heavy poker, without injury. It
can be laid on the floor and thus
struck with all one's might, and
though the line of the blow may
be depressed, this amazing steel
does not give.
Accordingly I now call upon
all the hatters and outfitters
who have long been displaying
and selling helmets and body
shields, not tested, not made of
manganese steel, and deadly to
the wearer, to withdraw all such
murderous rubbish forthwith.
Reputable hatters have offered
our offices, at a guina apice,
things that may have cost any
thing between eighteen-pen-
ce and two shillings, made of
corrugated materialof all the
imbecilitieswhich splintered
when struck, and were in every
way worse than worthless. All
soldiers* condemnation of ar-
mour, based upon their experi-
ence with such things, or with
the first helmets supplied to the
troopsl upon which reports
were, of course, asked for, is to
be set aside as irrelevant. The
authorities should forthwith
prohibit together the sale of this
untested and destructive rubbish
At the Ministry of Munitions I
have seen piled up scores of rid-
dled helmets of this class. They
should be tested, as I demanded
last November, upon skulls po-t
mortem, an*l condemned accor
dinglynot upon the living
heads of our heroes. As for body
shields, last November I protest
ed against some on sale. Many
have been, and are, made of
mild steel. Such'are bought,
tried, condemned by officers at
the front, to whom steel is just
steel, and so no progress is made.
Secondly, the shape of the hel-
met hat been considered. The
French helmet struck me as
having too vertical a front. If
we give the projectile a smoath
rounded,obique surface to strike
we immensely aid the inherent
resistance of the steel. Our hel-
met is accordingly low in pitch,
and is much less likely than the*
French helmet to be imitated
in women's headgear, but it
serves its purpose better. Obvi-
ously the shape of a policeman's
or fireman's helmet would be
unsuitable here, and every frac-
tion of an inch that the helmet
rises above the scalp is a dis-
advantage.
IMPORTANCE OF CR.ANIAL
SURGERY.
But, thirdly, we cannot simp-
ly clap a cap of steel upon a
living head and be content.
Accordingly, in the British
helmet we have really a double
structure. It is, first, a soft cap,
bounded all round its edge
with thick rubber studs
now made hollow for greater
resilience. This cap has a double
lining of felt and wadding, so
that even if the helmet, at point
blank range may be pierced, the
scalp is guarded from the steel.
Upon this padded cap is poised
the casque of steel. The inter-
val between the two serves for
ventilation, especially now that
we have inserted some netting
in the crown, so that there real-
ly is a route for the air. Even so,
perhaps, our ventilation is in-
ferior to, that of the French
helmet, which has an aperture
for the purpose under tlfe
charming crest that runs
sagittallyover it; but that aper
ture is a weak place and not
worth while.
How to colour such an object ?
If we simply paint it khaki or
ortherwise, it reflects.the sun's
ravs, and the moon's rays still
worse, to the wearer's disadvan
tage. The surface is now sand
ed and roughened so that it can
no longer act as a mirror. My
fjiend Professor E. B. Poulto.i
of Oxford, pointed out very ear
ly in the war that the flat round
discs which constitute the ab
surd caps worn by our men, are
well calculated to reflect the
light and reveal themselves. As
the greatest living-authority on
the protective colouratior of
animals, clearly he was the man
to consult, none the less as his
own splendid son, who has giv
en his life for us all, would
doubtles have been saved had he
worn such a helmet as our men
have to day. The helmet is fix
ed with a strap under the chin,
and that is now made adjust
able, like a boy's cricket belt,
but without the metal point of
an ordinary buckle. Also, as the
edges of the helmet were injur
ing the temples of the next men's
heads, in the close company of
the trenches, a steel binding is
now attached all round to blunt
the fim and avert such acci
dents.
Our soldiers have one serious,
tragic, magnificient fault. They
are too brave. A young coloAel
in Staffordshire, presiding at a
recent lecture of mine to officers,
said he preferred his cap to the

Tuesday October 24, 1916.
The great offensive on the
Somme, with its steady pro-
gress and its shattering of the
fear that the Germans had
us deadlocked in the West,
has put heart into us all. The
capture of Combles and
Thiepval has had a mighty
influence on neutrals and has
checked German peace sche-
mes in America. American
opinion is now that our foe
is being beaten and that they
had better not try to inter-
vene on behalf of peace at
present. Rut the most wel-
come effect of all, outside our
Empire, is the change our,
efforts are making on the
French people as a whole.
While statesmen and generals
in France have seen that we
were doing wonders on the
side of the Entente, the
French people were asking
why we were keeping large
armies in France and appar-
ently doing nothing with
them while the French were
struggling and bleeding at
Verdun. Now they know and -
are tilled with admiration (usual business visit.
I gratitude over thc'glori-
ous achievements of our
wonderful soldiers. The
"Times" Correspondent in
Pjiris has given a vivid pic-
ture of the state of French
feeling after thefalfof Tliiep
vat] and Combles. The French
papers were full of the praises
of British bravery and effic-
iency. Generals, journalists
and men high in political
life joined to swell the happy!
'horns. What these public
men are saying all France is
saying. I his is a happy au-
gury for the time when peace
omes. France 'should on
every account be our close
friend, and our suffering by
her side and doing our full
share of the dreadful work
will strongly cement the
friendship between the two
peoples. #

In France! Galicia and in
the Dobrudja region of Rou-
mania the armies of the Cen
tral powers have successfully
taken the offensive against
their opponets. They are also
holding the Allies in check
in Northern Macedonia and
are continuing the fighting
on the Transylvania Rou-
manian frontier.
Crown Prince Rupprecht
assuming the offensive on the
Somme front in France has,
according to lierlin, recaptur
pd from the British the great
er part of ground lost several
days ago between Eaucourt
L'Abbaye and LeBarque, be
tween the Pozieres-Bapaume
road and Gueudecourt and
towards Beaucourt. The Ger-
mans have also successfully
withstood British attacks
near Courcelletleand LeSars
and on ihc Bapauine Pozier
es road.
Paris reportsonlv artillt ry
activity on the Somme but
London chroniclesthe repulse
with heavy casualties of a
German attack in the Thiep
val region.
On the easfcm front the
Teutons have stormed Rus
sian positions on the left
bank of the Narayuvka Ri
ver southeast of Lemberg and
held the conquered ground
against counter attacks 14
officers and 3050 men and 11
machine guns were taken by
Prince Leopolds troops.
In Volhynia the fighting
continues with varying re
suits, both the Austro Ger
mans and Russians claiming
repulse of attacks on various
sectors^
To the north of Kiselin a
stubborn battle is being wag
ed with no decision yet hav
ing been .reached. Field Mar
shal Von Mackensen again
has resumed his drive towards
the Constanza Bucharest
railway where Berlin reports
tlu; fighting to be lively.
Bucharest admits that the
Roumanian left wing along
the Black sea coast has been
thrown back. Petrograd re
ports that the Teutonic at
tacks were repulsed with
heavy losses and that the
battle continues.
The Roumanians are fighting
hard to drive the enemy back
through the frontier passes into
Traosylvaaia. Bucharest re-
ports the beginning of an offen-
sive in the Ottus Valley north-
east of Kronstadt and the tak
ing of Mount Sarnul east of
Rotherthurn Pass south of
Hermanstadt.
Between theAncre River and
the Pozieres-Hapaume road on
the Somme front British troops
after successfully chocking an
offensive movement by Prince
Rupreclits forces attacked suc-
cessfully and pushed forward
from 300 to 500 yards on a front
of 5,000 yards. The advance
was made between Le Sars and
the Schwaben Redoubt which
was the scene of the earlier at
tack by the Germans. General
HaigS men captured Stuff and
Regina trenches advance posts
north and northeast of Schwa
ben Redoubt, taking several
hundred prisoner*. The Ger-
mans attacked strongly the
French positions at Sailly Sail-
lessel on tht Bapaume Peronne
road as well as positions be-
tween Biaches and LaMaison-
nette, near Peronne. The at
tackers were repulsed generally
but Paris admits they gained a
footing north of Blaise Wood.
The French succeeded in at
tacks further south and gained
possession of a wood north of
Chaulmes.
On the Danube the Germans,
Bulgarians and Turks forced
their way into the Kntente po-
sitions south of Rachova.
In Serbia south of Monastir
the Serbians continue to advan
ce against the stubborn resistan
ce of the Bulgarians. Having
crossed the Cerna River in the
bend at Brod they are now
about four miles north of that
place. French troops, it is un-
officially reported, are aiding
the Serbians along the Fiorina
Monastir railway.
