and you will be forced out of the trenches into the sun's rays on Easter
Morning and how will that old suit look then? With Easter only
TWO weeks away you will have to hurry and place your order, or
otherwise go home in that old trench suit that has seen better days.
You are now in danger of being overtaken with the big guns that
have already blasted away many of the best patterns, very lucky for
you the NEW reinforcements have already arrived and with your im-
mediate assistance there is still time to save your face on Easter
General Von Style is still able to hold hill No. 305 with a strong
force of models to draw on, in fact I am sure you will find a style that
will suit you, and with MALCOLM'S tailoring you will be pleased to
get out of the ready made trench and stand on firm ground such as all
men with red blood desire.

BONAR LAW APPEALS
FOR MORE SOLDIERS
(United, Press Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, March 29.-Land de-
fense problems held h nresident's
chief attention today in his conidera-
tion of preparing the nation for the
existing state of war, formal announce-
ment of which is expected Tuesday.
Senator Chamberlain, chairman of
the military committee of the upper
body, called at the White House this
afternoon to tell the president that he
should embody in his coming message
a flat recommendation for universal
military training. "We discussed the
general military situation," Chamber-
lain said. "Of course, I urged that
the president signify his approval of
some form of universal service. If
the president would get behind uni-
versal military service it could be
passed, I believe. However, he has
not manifested any change in his opin-
ion. Until some bills other than
my own are advanced, I will continue
to push my bill forward."
Chamberlain to Raise Age Limit
Raising the minimum for young men
called under universal training from
19 to 20 years is the only change
Senator Chamberlain said he would
make in the bill to be introduced at
the coming session. Chamberlain left
with the president an ?estimate of
what universal training would cost,
about $156,000,000 a year for 500,000
men. Under this system the senator
said it would not be long before the
regular United States army could be
practically dispensed with, and much
of the tremendous expense attended
upon military establishment elim-
President's Position Not Known
Chamberlain said he hoped the
president would come out for uni-
versal training, but that he was un-
able to voice the president's present
views on the question. That congress
will pass an appropriation to provide
supplies of all kinds, clothing, arms,
ammunition,.and other equipment for
1,000,000 men was Chamberlain's be-
Six representatives today sent ut a
call for a get-together dinner tomor-
row to congressmen who favor uni-
versal military service. They plan to
start at that time plans for military
legislation. The six representatives
are: McArthur, Oregon; Green, Ver-
mont; Platt, New York; Grey, New
Jersey; Gardner, Massachusetts, and

London, March 29.-Appealing for
more men to man the fighting lines,
Chancellor of the Exchequer Bonar
Law declared prospective fightingj
casualties will be terrible. The casu-
alties so far this year had been less
than expected, he asserted.
Bonar Law introduced the re-exam-
ination bill providing for another
medical examination of all England's
millions to comb out those physically
able to fight. A million men are af-
fected by the bill. The cabinet spokes-
man said the government considered
such an assorting of England's men
to seek out others available for serv-
ice as absolutely necessary in view
of the military situation.
The needs at home had. heretofore
been so pressing that those of the
army afield have been compelled to
suffer. The chancellor asserted that
since the beginning of the year the
recruit shortage had been 100,000.
"The decreasing of the troops supply
might mean the difference between a
decisive and a fruitless victory."

reichstag, making a most important
declaration about German policy rela-
tive to the United States and Russia.
Concerning the United States the
chancellor said, "Within the next few
days the directors of the American
nation will be convened by the presi-
dent for an extraordinary session of
congress in order to decide the ques-
tion of war or peace between the
American and German nations.
Germany Never Desired War
"Germany never had the slightest
intention of attacking the United
States, and: it does not have such in-
tentions now. It has never desired
war against the United States, and it
does not desire it today. How did
things develop? More than once we
told the United States that we made
unrestricted use of our submarine
weapon expecting that England could
be made to observe in her policy of
blockade the laws, of humanity and
international agreements. This policy,
I expressly recall, has been called il-
legal and indefensible by President
Wilson and Secretary of State Lan-
