WASHINGTON, Aug. 9.--(P)--The
Army maintained strict secrecy to-
night regarding the details of, a new
monster tank which is to go into
production shortly at the Baldwin
Locomotive Works in Philadelphia.
Officials evidently felt that any
information regarding the design of
the "land battleship" might prove of
value to some foreign nations.
They were displeased by the fact
that news of the $5,6 9,725 contract
with Baldwin for production of an
undisclosed number of the tanks had
slipped out in a routine list of con-
tract clearings made public by the
National Defense Commission.
It was assumed the Army's new
heavy tanks would resemble the 70-
ton giants which have been credited
with playing an important part in
the German break-through of Bel-
gian and French defenses.
The United States Army is already
building light tanks of around 12 tons
each and medium tanks of nearly
20 tons, but it has hesitated in the
past to build huge land battle-wa-
gons of 50 tons or more.

thousands Americans were unofficial-

said it could not provide any figures

take the oath of allegiance. Since
this stipulation was dropped there
was a spurt in enlistments for the

around 1,000 Americans in the Army.

-Sympathy for Governor Luren D.
Dickinson, whose wife died at their
farm home near here yesterday, was
mixed with concern lest emotional
strain impair the health and strength
of the Governor, who is 81 years old.
Mrs. Dickinson will be buried here
tomorrow following funeral services
at 3:30 p.m. in the Charlotte Meth-
odist Church. Her body will lie in
state from 1 p.m. until the funeral.
Dr. H. Allen Moyer, State health
commissioner and Dickinson's per-
sonal. physician, said his old friend
has shown remarkable fortitude. He
suggested that it "might be well for
Governor Dickinson to keep occupied
by returning to his duties in the
capitol next week."
The commissioner said Dickinson
might experience an emotional let-
down following the funeral, and rec-
ommended work to occupy his mind.
He emphasized, however, that Dick-
inson must be careful not to over-
tax his strength.

have sent mesages of condolence to
the Governor or called upon him per-
sonally to express their sympathy.
Included in the group were neighbors
to whom Dickinson still is "Luren."
