Dipping Never Does
Reduce Milk Yields
iTemple Tologtfim Hpeelnl.)
WASHINGTON. July 1. — "Dip-
ping rows to kill fever ticks actually
increases milk yields," fays the United
States department of ngru«lturo in
a statement istued today. "This is
proved in actual experiment and in
tho results obtained in thousands of
dairy herds the owners of Which are
thorough believers in tick eradication
by (lie dipping-vat method. Careful
records prove that lightly Infested
cows produce 18.6 per cent less milk
than free cows, while cows heavily in-
fested produce on an average 4 2,4 per
cent less milk than similar cows freed
from tick*. This was established by
records of yields kept over consider-
able periods for ticky herds before
they were dipped and for the same
herds after they were dipped.
"A herd of twenty lightly ticked
cow produced twenty-nine quarts
lea» milk per day. or a loss of 5,800
quarts in 200 days' milking, than
twenty tick-free cows of the same
kind. Twenty heavily ticked cows
produced sixty-seven quarts per day
less, or a loins of iS.100 quarts in 200
days' milking, than twenty tick-free
eows of a similar breed. The mone-
tary gain from dipping of the lightly
IrtfosttxJ herd would have been $i\S0

a dipping would have given increased
profits of $lj»i0 a year.

Promotion oi Navy
Enlisted Men Rapid
(Associated Pit** Dispntch.)
GREAT 1.AK.&S, ill., July 1.—The
value of the enlisted tnan In the
United States navy is going op. Since
the United States entered tho world
war, the newest recruit has the satis-
factory feeling of being the highest
paid fighting man of any nation in
the world. For those more experi-
enced promotion in so rapid that, as
one tnan al the United States naval
training station here expressed it, he
never knows in the morning who will
have to salute him as a superior be-
fore eight bells announce the close of
the day's work.
Removal of "dead wood" in high
commands and the advancement of
"young blood" to obtain vigorous
action has been a feature of every
war. Much noise has been made when
an admiral was scrapped, but little
attention paid to the rank and file,
and yet promotions of enlisted men
have been more frequent and more
rapid than the progress in grade of
Take the case of a chief yoeman at
the station here, ranking as chief
petty officer with salary and allow-
ances of something more than $10(1 a
month. Bess than a year ago he was
sworn into the. first line of defense.
In eleven months he has won promo-
tion that before the declaration of
war could not have been gained in
less time than two enlistments of four
There is another man who won a
commission as ensign in less than a
year, but he previously hnd served in
the navy and accordingly had the
benefit of one enlistment. However,
It is a topic for thought that having
re-enlisted as a fireman, firs* class,
he transferred to the yoenmn, or cler-
ical, department with a second cl:iss
rating, and soon thereafter won Uis
Another man, having been in the
hotel business, wanted to do his bit in
the war and signed a contract with
Uncle Sam as tn enlisted man in the
navy. Ho demonstrated his ability in
the commissary lino and in a matter
of weeks became chief commissary
steward. Tho examples might be
multiplied almost indefinitely.
The rawest recruit of the American
new now is» paid $32 a month. As
he b arns a trade and wins promotion,
expres sed in naval parlanco as "get-
ting-a rating," his pay increases. Knelt
new enlistment carries an increase in
pay. Each demonstration of greater
efficiency, for instance qualifying as
an expert marksman, is rewarded by
a boost tn his envelope. Foreign ser-
vice means more money. Some chief
petty officers draw $1,400 a year.
Expressed in dollars and cents,
however, naval salaries are very mis-
leading. To the man making $7*> a
month, tho pay of a recruit, seems like
starvation, until he learns that the
bluejacket's $32 virtually is clear
money. Hoard and lodging are fur-
nished him and the bill collector arid
renting agent hold for him no terrors.
Clothes for a year were furnished ium
on enlistment. Others may be pur-
chased at rock-bottom prices. A
doctor always is at hand to give free
professional service. Under ^ these
