type I remember is Hrig. Cen. Charles
L. McCawley. tjiiartertnaster of the
Marine corps whose duty it was to
see that the murines had plenty of
clothes and food. When the war broke
out the marine corps was ready w ith
enough uniforms to give each man all
he needed and they were of the best

whole lot to make the marines feel

I stanetl fighting you know what hap

I "On February 4. l!lf. an art of
'congress was approved which gave
the president power to give the
medals for war service in the navy
and marine corps. Hut not long ago.
when it came time to decide to whom
the medals should go. the prcslden'
was ill and not able to act. So Jo-
, sephus Daniels, secretary of the navy. :
! was. it seems, given the right to give '
I the medals. He had no way of know- I
i.'ng who should and who shouldn't
get them so he appointed a hoard
composed of naval officers of high
rank, all fair minded men to go over

"No it was not, Jack. Mr. Manlcls

great service and everyone nolleves
he should have been awarded the dis
tinguished service medal. Hut ilr.
Daniels didn't think ho and to make
matters worso he appears to think
that his nephew, Lieut. David Worth
Ragley who commanded the Jaob
Jones, a destroyer, nhould have the
distinguished service medal. The
board had recommended the navy
cross for I. lent. Hugh' because he
bail done nothing greater than many

the board was taking up Admiral
Cowle's name they bad letters of
praise from Secretary Daniels about
him They were so strong the board
commented upon t Iti-in . The admiral's
service hail been Important so the
board recommended the distinguished
service medal Hut in the meantime
there was a iii.itrel between the two
men. So when Mr Daniels came to
Admiral t'owie's name be struck It
from the list.
"I could go on ami on naming cases
like that, but I want to ti ll ou what
