THE MORXIXG OREGONIAX, ' THURSDAY,
MAY 27, 1920
General Barnett Wrecks Pair
CORPS SPIRIT PRAISED
Commandant ot Soldier - Sailors
Proves Self on Time Although
3 9 Minutes Late.
The marines did not win the war.
"Tis true there has "been some sort
of an idea that they did a few of
them and 'tis also true that the ma
rines as a whole have not acted bo as
to dispel this impression, but It isn't
so. At least, not quite so.
Major-General George Barnett. who.
S commander of all the American
marines, ought to know, said yester
day definitely that the marines did
"not win the war.
"So, you doughboys, you needn't feel
o blue about it any more.
But the general broke oil marine
traditions to smithereens yesterday.
Whisper it old "Father Time," as
the marines call him was 39 minutes
and 22 seconds late for an engage
ment. Won't that be told in Guam, on the
Potomac, in Haiti, Santa Domingo,
China, the canal zgne and everywhere
over the globe where those "few
marines" are gathered with glee and
something akin to amazement?
And when the general really failed
to appear on schedule, his aide. Lieu
tenant Charles L. Murray, glanced at
a clock and murmured in an awed
Clock Errs, Says) Aide.
."The general is never late. The
clock must be wrong."
The general finally did appear. He
said that he had been at his appoint
ment on the dot, but that his chauf
feur had assured him that another
place was meant, and being ignorant
of Portland, he had then driven there.
"No. sir," said the general, "marine
traditions of absolute punctuality are
intact. I was on time."
So, with the general's alibi, we'll
let it go at that.
Now as to that war stuff.
"'""Those 8000 marines played in won
derful luck, but luck would have been
.worth nothing if they had not had
brains to back it up. Not a marine
aot to France unless he was wearing
at least a marksmen's medal. The sit
uation was there. They seized it and
the world knows the story.
Coolness Awes Krcnch.
"A Frenchman told me that in the
heart of a hot advance he watched
some of our marines cold-bloodedly
"adjusting their sights, while the aver-
age Frenchman was satisfied so long
as he was shooting somewhere in me
direction of the enemy under such
! "But what thrills me is that an
- American woman was in the advance
- lines nursing Frenchmen. Sudisi
. she head youthful voices joyfully yell
; ing 'Over There.' She -ild not know
an American soldier was in France.
; The French wcr allinB back in dis-
- order. Paris was endangered. Then
that woman saw the marines coming
over the hill."
The general is inspecting marine
- recruiting stations, but the spirit of
the marines has kept everything in
- apple-pie order, he indicated.
" "You know the spirit of the ma
' rines," General Barnatt went on. "A
new recruit had been in the service a
week. Another had been there a day.
The second did something or other.
The first recruit went up to him.
t " 'Hey,' he said sternly, "We don't
do that in the marines.'
Office Open to ''Bui'k."
1 "We have an esprit de corps. My
office, for instance, is open readily at
:." any hours of the day to any enlisted
7 man just as much as to any com---'
mander -of a regiment."
"But the marines seem to have a
knack for publicity," suggested the
. "There are several reasons. The
- first is that the first tradition of the
marines is politeness. A woman met
" me -on the streets today.
" I just wanted to speak to you,
" for my son was in the marines she
"Now she knew she was welcome
snd I was delighted to meet her. Her
HE HAD SUFFERED
FOR THIRTY YEARS
Telephone Man Says Tanlac Has
Now Completely Overcome
'Although it has been two years
now since Tanlac straightened me up
1 am st ill feeling fine," said O. W.
Grigg, 4929 Sixty-second street south
east. Portland. Or., an employe of the
Pacific Telephone company."
"When 1 began taking Tanlac I had
been bothered with stomach trouble
off and on for 30 years, which had
gradually grown worse until I was in
a mighty bad shape, but by the time 1
had taken only three bottles of this
wonderful medicine all my troubles
were gone and I had gained IS pounds
in weight. I could not eat a single
Oiling without its hurting me. After
livery meal my food would just He in
my stomach undigested, turn sour and
ferment, causing me to bloat up with
IS a. a until I was as tight as a drum.
My heart palpitated so badly and
acted so queerly at times I became
frightened for fear I had heart
trouble. My liver was all out of order,
1 suffered with severe headaches and
often became so dizzy I could hardly
stand up. I lost a great deal in
weight, felt tired and wornout al
the time, had little life or energy left
and was so weak 1 could barely get
"I tried just about everything for
my troubles I could hear off, but up'
until I got hold of Tanlac had failed
to find anything to help me. Well,
sir, after 1 had finished my first bot
tle of Tanlac my stomach was in such
good shape I could eat just anything
1 wanted without having a particle
of trouble afterward and it has never
bothered me from that day to this.
In a short while my liver became
active, the headaches stopped and 1
never became dizzy any more. That
tired, wornout feeling left me, I felt
good and full of energy all the time
-and my work was actually a pleasure
'. U me. As 1 said before this was two
years ago when Tanlac rid me of my
troubles, and I am still enjoying the
best of health. I think Tanlac is the
most wonderful medicine on. earth,
and I am always glad of the oppor
tunity to recommend it."
Tanlac Is sold in Portland by the
Owl Drug Store. Adv.
I son's marine traditions had
"Then we train marines in publicity.
The newspapers are good to us and
we try. to help them out in return.
Why 100 army officers the other day
wanted to go through our publicity
training school f.o that the regular
army could imbibe some of our ideas.
But modesty, polrffeness and efficiency
are the keynota of the marines."
General la Modest.
The general was modest enough,
but the enlisted marines in attend
ance could almost be heard to say:
"What on earth does that chap want
to bother the general when he is
ready to go on the highway?"
General Barnett paid a. tribute to
the marines from the northwest. He
said . the marines were recruiting1 to
their new strength of 27,000.
General Barnett has a jolly kind of
laugh, a happy kind of smile. He does
not brag, but he assumes that the
fame of the marines is so well recog
nized that it really is not possible to
paint the lily, as it were. He believes
in the marines He is a marine.
General Barnett left Portland last
night for Seattle. He Is accompanied
by Brigadier-General Charles L. Mc
Cawley, the quartermaster of the ma
rine corps'. Lieutenant Murray, his
aide; Mrs. Barnett and Miss Lucia
Chase of Waterbury, Conn.
Mrs. Barnett was formerly Mrs.
Basil Gordon, one of the far-famed
beautiful women of Baltimore, and is
now a leader in Washington society.

The condition of the harbor Is add to be
responsible for the accident, as the Ho

say, of a floating dock for the repair of

Contract Is Binding, Declares
. Union Leader.
ULTIMATUM IS DELIVERED
Caterers Insist Upon Demand for
Sew Wage Schedule Being
Developments of the restaurant
situation yesterday were:
Under no circumstances will the
cooks of Portland violate their afjree-
ment and strike. Their - contract la
their bond. This was the statement
of C. T. Frederick, secretary of the
cooks' and assistants' union.
An ultimatum was formally de
livered to union headquarters by
F. W. Beach, secretary of the caterers'
association, that the caterers at pres
ent operating under union conditions
were willing so to continue; but
that the waere schedule must be with
drawn not later than noon Friday,
and that if it is not withdrawn by
that date the union houses will oper
ate under open shop conditions.
'And the answer must be yes or no;
we cannot arbitrate , the question,
said Mr. Beach to the union leaders.
Unions to Frame Answer.
Union leaders will meet today to
consider their answer. 1
A record attendance of members of
the caterers' association met at the
Chamber of Commerce and the entire
wage schedule was considered. Mem
bers of the association declared that
they could not possibly pay the in
creased wage demands and Mr. Beach
was instructed to call upon the
unions and deliver the ultimatum.
Prior to that time Mr. Frederick,
Harley Johnson, representing the
international union, and R. R. Hatch,
chairman of the joint board of the
