FAILS TO GIVE DASH OF
SWANK TO U. S. OFFICERS
S). It Is almost pitiful the
rebirth of the Sam Urowno belt.
General Pershing, as chief of
Htaff, has attempted to put a lit
tle dash of swank Into the urmy
by ordering the Sam llrowne belt
as regulation uniform, but some
how or other the belt, than which
none was "swanker" during tho
war doesn't work thu same as It
did In the busy days when there
were dashing young captains and
majors and colonels and ho forth.
The Sam Browne belt waa re
born In the midst of a heat
wave and It appeared on the
streets of the national capital
during one of the most torrid
spells of tile summer. Somehow
or other It looked rather out of
place and reminded one of pet
dogs laden down with embellish
Kat majors putTed and swore.
Lanky captains looked uncom
fortable. Aged colonels damned
the new-fangled contraptions.

Ma be li s because the army
Isn't as dashing as It was. May
be it's because the Sam Browne
belts aren't accompanied by
trench caps. But whatever It
Is. most certainly the belt bus

WASHINGTON, July 27. U. P.)
The Harding administration is believ
ed to have mapped out a normalcy
course, involving the cleaning up of
the "debris and left overs" of the war,
such as: Putting the allied debt to
this country on a permanent basis; set

the railroads, funding seven and a half
billions of government obligations, due
in 123; revision of the revenue, laws,
wiping out the war taxes.
The settlement of these matters it 1
estimated would give the country a
feeling of security and permanency?
and serve as a starting point for busi
