Headquarters Italian army, June 3.
--(Correspondence of The Associated
Press.)-The American military mis-
sion is now one of the permanent es-
tablishments at Italian headquarters,
with extensive offices and a consider-t
able force of officers and men, in close
communication with the Italian higha
command and with the various sec-
tions of the front.
Thus far the work has been one ofr
organization and observation, but soon
there will be the active service along
the mountain and Piave fronts of some
1,500 officers and men of the regular
army medical service, with 30 ambul-
ance sections of 10 or 12 ambulances
to the section, and later on there is the
possibility, much discussed, of Am-
erican troops in the fighting line. Al-
ready the American uniform is much
in evidence along the streets, and
there is a distant setiment of cordial-
ity toward the troopers in the broad-
Major General Eben Swift, a cavalry
officer of long service, is at the head
of the American mission. He was for
a time in France in conference with
General Pershing, and then came with
his staff to Rome and to headquarters.
With him as chief of staff is Colonel
John McA. Palmer of the general staff
corps, who was on the general staff
at Washington when the constructive
work on the new army was being done,
and later was one of General Persh-
ing's chief staff officers in France.
Officers Well Received
The American officers have been
well received and made to feel at
home. They share the mess with the
other foreign military missions which
includes a large number of British,
Belgian, Japanese, Serbian and other
officers. As an officer for keeping the
Americans in close touch with the Ital-
ian military authorities, the govern-
ment designated Prince Colona, mayor
Hemdquarters in Palac
The American headquarters is es-
tablished in one of the famous old
palaces of the region, now taken over
for war uses. There are extensive of-
fices for the various branches engaged
in observation and report, with a rat-
tle of typewriters and activity that
sound like the corridors of the war
department at Washington.
The old palace has extensive gard-
ens in the rear, which run back to
one of the most monumental church
edifices in Italy, with its interior
adorned by the frescoes of Titian and
Giotto and many of the masterpieces
of Donatello, as well as the catafal-
cue in which repose the remains of the
world's great saints.

For several days the special stu-
dents, as well as a few of the in-
structors, suspected that some un-
known individual had been endeavor-
ing to cart away the belongings of
the inmates in the "heaven" behind
the Engineering building. Things
have mysteriously disappeared, and
in order to put a stop to the petty
thefts, a squad of training men, arm-
ed with rifles, have been detailed to
guard the place.
Two men are on guard every hour
of the nigh c. The guards are changed
every two hours. At the end of a
definite period, another squad of men
takes tarn at guard duty. In this
manner nearly every member of the
first training detachment will have
experience in guard duty.
This is the first drastic act n that
the captain of the detachment has
taken toward the protection of Uni-
versity property. In case the danger
increases, it is probable that a larger
force may be employed on guard
duty. The next detachment will have
day and night guard duty. Guard
mount will also be introduced.

Washington, June 3. -- In connec-
tion with the black walnut census
which President Wilson has asked
the Boy Scouts of America to under-
take, Henry S. Graves, the Chief of
the U. S. Forest Service, has written
a letter to the Boy Scouts explain-
ing why the need for the work is ur-
"The tremendous forest resources
of the United States," Colonel Graves
states in the letter, "will undoubtedly
be a very important factor in the win-
ning of the war for the allies. One
of the most essential timbers for war
purposes, as the President points out,
is the black walnut. With the excep-
tion of mahogany, which has to be
imported and thus burdens the ship-
ping facilities of the country, no oth-
er wood is so well adapted for air-
"Since four or five propellers are
required for each airplane and since
black walnut is scarce and only the
best grade can be utilized for this
purpose, it is important for the Gov-
ernment to know immediately the lo-
cation of all available supplies. Wal-
nut is also the chief wood used for
"I believe that the Boy Scouts are
performing a most valuable patriotic
service in undertaking this work. Let
me urge you to impress upon . the
farmers of the country the impor-
tance of properly conserving their
forests and especially propagating
such valuable species as the black
walnut, which has appropriately been
called the Liberty Tree."
