Daniels' report, the secretary of war,.

Baker Gives Faets of Raid
Secretary Baker gives the facts col-

and the Pershing expedition, the Par-

brief summary of the present situa-

to preserve peace and to protect life
and property," says the report in
summing up the situation as it is to-
day on the boundary line.
The report also enumerates the
army increase provisions and the ap-
propriations for the aviation depart-
Statements were also received from

London, Dec. G.-(Special.)-Three
gangs of young London street fighters
just rounded upand vigorously pad-
dled by the police, have "passed the
buck" to America. Their slang, their
pecularities of dress and their pen-
chant for fisticuffs all came from
American ilms exhibited in English
movie houses to the almost total ex-
clusion of British production.
Dixies, Boston boys, and boweries
were the street clans which ran into
the coppers' net. The youngsters wore
large caps, baggy peg-top trous-
ers and striped sweaters just like the
gang fighters shown in the films. Most
of them rolled"their own cigarets,
which isn't an English custom, and
when their caps were lifted in court it
was seen that they favored the high-
around badger brand of haircut.
Though the American films gave
them plenty of ideas on make-up, the
productions were shy in one essential
element, practical instruction in the
trade of beating up lone pedestrians.

"The Quest for Efficiency" was the
subject chosen by Professor I. L.
Sharfman for his talk at the Y. W. C.
A. vesper service yesterday afternoon.
"This problem is not only one for the
big world outside, it concerns every-
one of us here," said Professor Sharf-
man. "Lately there has grown up the
idea that efficiency can be achieved by
calling in someone from the outside
to set our business right for us when
things go wrong. I submit that it
will never come in this way. Efficiency
can only be achieved by each man's
knowing so much about running his
business, and every woman's knowing
so much about running her household,
that no efficiency expert can tell them
anything about it.
"There is a certain joy in doing
things well and thoroughly," the,
speaker concluded, "and until he pos-
sesses this, no one can achieve the
greatest success of which he is
