DIRECT SERVICE WILL BE REAL-
ITY BY DEEMBER, SAYS t
f BERN
San Juan, Porto Rico, June 6.-Di-
rect telephone service between Key
West and Havana will be a reality byt
December, according to Colonl Sos-
thenes Behn, who announces that the
submarine telephone cable connecting
the mainland and Cuba which was{
planned before the war will be laida
within the next few months.t
At present the most prominent Am-
erican and English engineers are'
working on the scheme, according to'
Colonel Behn and the laying of the'
cable will be commenced this sum-
mer.
The submarine telephone from Cuba
to Key West, according. to Colonel
Behn, is but the first leg of a cable
telephone system which in time will
connect all of Greater Antilles.
"The development of the telephone
during the war has made it possible
for us to plan now for a submarine
telephone cable system which three
years ago was not dreamed of," said
Colonel Behn. "The first leg of the
system from Key West to Havana in
itself will be the longest submarine
telephone in the world. At present
the submarine telephone across the
English channel is the longest.'
Mr, Behr was president of the Cub-
an Telephone company when the Un-
ited States entered the war. He vol-
unteered and was commissioned a
captain in the army signal corps. He
is connected with banking interests in
Cuba:
Food Department Asked to Continued

eration of Trades Unions. has request-
ed that the Food Controller's depart-

expensive department, but, as a. skel-
eton department to facilitate and not
to restrict distribution.

MESSAGES CARRIED
IN HOLLOW SHELL
New York, June 6.-A hollow three-
inch shell, fused to emit on striking
a gas of smoke-like density by day,
and luminous at night, and used to
transmit messages from division head-
quarters, to advanced or exposed pos-
itions, is another war-time secret
which has now been made public.
This form of communication was
first used by the Germans, and after-
ward adopted by the Allies. A sample
of the shell--one that was captured
from the enemy during the St. Mihiel
drive-was brought home by Vice-Ad-
miral Albert Gleaves on his return
from France.
According to Admiral Gleaves, the
shell has a range of about 2,000 yards,
and is self propelling. Its velocity
was such as to require 14 seconds to
travel that ,distance, "slow enough,"
the admiral said, to enable ad active
man to dodge it, should he see or hear
it coming. When it struck, it could be
readily located by its smoke cloud
by'day, or its light by night, picked up,
a cap unscrewed and the message in-
side delivered to the officer for whom
it was intended.
