New York, Aug. 9. The Jack tars
of the United Statea navy have made

they wear ashore and on dress occa
sions aboard ship that the navy de
partment has appointed a committee
to decide on changes In the uniform
Captain Hugo Oaterhsiis, commander
of the battleship Connecticut, la
chairman of thia committee. Captain
Osterbaus has sent out a statement
to the captains of all warships in the
North Atlantic squadron and to the
commander of every ship In the ser
vice, asking for suggestions.
The enlisted men are desirous of
obtaining coats and visor caps. Many
of them want the wide flaring trous
ers changed Into the ordinary pat
tern. But the chief grlevnnce relates
to the blouses and the old-fashioned
pancake cape. These caps sre said
by all aeamen to be absolutely useless
on a windy day, as they cannot be
kept on the head. They afford no
shade to the eyes and seem to exist
merely as a relic of the past.
The protest over the blouse Is con
sidered well Justified in the navy. In
the first ploce the seamen object to
the wide collar, which blows up
around their ears on windy days.
They want shorter neckerchiefs and
coats but like those of marines.
