New York, Oct. 30. With the

more days left before the balloting
begins, the fight for control of the
senate has assumed surpassing im

34 senators, there are some of the
bitterest and closest contests ever
staged in a senatorial campaign. In
at least a half dozen of these states,
the outcome can only be guessed

competing with local issues and a de
sire for revenge by suffragists on anti

Most of the contests can be dismissed
quickly because their outcome is cer

inspired our allies with new .hope and
brought to our enemy his first tremor !
of fear. That report was the basis and J

"As acting judge advocate general

FOR MILITARY JUSTICE
"The system of military justice advo
cated by him in 1917 finally became the
law cf the land on June 4. 1920. In the
meanwhile it was his efforts that led
to the adoption in the war department
of a system of review of court-martial
administration which resulted in the
general setting aside of many unjust
sentences and the release of some 10,000
unjustly Imprisoned men.
"He was ever the able, intelligent,
fearless servant of the country, the
army, the individual soldier and citizen,

praise, and every parent who had a son
