instance horlsuntal columns or classi-

That ia What People of Eng-

When War is Ended.
DUNLAP RETURNS TO U. S.
British Subjects Are Becoming
Tired of Kingly Hot Air
By 8. J. STOCK A RD
"Here's your hat king; sorry you
have to hurry but good-by and so
Thut's what the people of England
sre getting ready to say to King
Uonrge as soon as they get thru
spanking the kaiser's "four" cheess.
according to Dr. Itoy W. Dunlap ear
and throat specialist of Tulsa who has
Just returned from a year s stay in me
Central Throat and Ear hospital In
The spirit of full liberty and equal-
ity nas taken a profou hold on the
Hrilish says Doctor Dunlap and It
received ft tremendous Impetus when
the HtiMsian people lifted the citar
off his throne. They are getting tired
of the king's continued reference to
'my' armv. and 'my' navy and 'my
people and that sort of kingly hot
air :md they are lurking It openly.
Thohe two million eight hundred
thousand Tommies over there In
France have been taught that they are
fighting for their country." Doctor
Dunlup quoted a number of English-
men as saving to him on his passage
across the ocean. "Suppose they take-
a tiotlon when they come home that
they are going to have It? Who's go-
ing to stop them ?"
PnMlshcs Signed Article.
Doctor Dunlap said that T.oViiti
Fraxler. a famous English magazine
writer was so bw'd as to publish a
signed article in the Dally Mall Im-
mediately after the ltusslan revolu-
tion In which he asserted that "wlia.t
had happened in Russia was very lit-
tle more than what Is going to hap-
pen in England."
But the English will permit the
king to hold his throne until the war
Is won Doctor Dunlup thinks. After
that however he says the American
people need not be a bit surprised to
read some fine . morning where tha
(English have handed the king his hat
and told him to "beat it."
Ha also predicts similar trouble In
Ireland where there Is undimlnishing
unrest. "The Irish have Deen prom-
ised home rule but they are suspici-
ous of the promise" said Doctor Dun-
Ian. "They think It Is only n 'cam
paign pledge' and that when the war
has been won the king ana nis cumnet
will conveniently forget It."
England's attitude toward the Unit-
ed suites has been completely re-
versed since this country entered the
war said the doctor. "When I first
went to London a year ago the Brit-
ish were exceedingly enraged at us.
They felt that they were fighting our
battle and keeping Germany off us
while we were standing by getting rich
off them. It was an everyday occur-
rence to hear President Wilson or the
United States navy hissed In the thea-
ters and In public assemblages.
All I Changed.
"But It Is all changed now." said
Doctor Dunlap. "Everywhere the
Stars and Stripes are flying and Pres-
ident Wilson Is Just about the biggest
mnn In the world to the English at
this moment. When his picture was
thrown on the screens In London pic
ture bouses the audiences go wild with
enthusiasm. The English are partlc
ularly grateful to him for permitting
the ptibllsnlng or Anumssaaor s ner-
ard's series of articles which have been
running thru many American news
papers and appear simultaneously In
the large papers of England. It was
an unusual thing to do and tho Ger
mans declared that 'no civilized nation
would permit its diplomatic papers to
be published In such a manner' but
the Brltlhh hailed Gernrd's contrlbu
lions with delight declaring that they
substantiated everything England had
charged against tho kaiser and his mil
"The president' war message and his
answer to the pope was printed not

AMSTERDAM Oct. 1 i. The Wea-
er Zcltuiig (Bremen! publishes an
article by Major lloffe ot the Get man
general i'aff In whli.li he declares
after reviewing the difficulties of tho
United States in training and tiiiis-
portlng loops to Europe that Ameri-
can mllll.i'.v possibilities safely may
be Ignored by Germany.
"Befor tho declaration of war."
ho says "the mllltuiy resources of
the I'nite.l States coiulsted of an In-
sufficient! trained regular army of
only one hundred thousand ami a.
national ruard of 1 10. 000 hardly

taken to .Increase the army will result
In the fo.Miatlon by spring of an army
of about one million four hundred
thouand which has received only

"No considerable part of this urmy
can reach Europe before suml.ier
while lu :my ca.se a large number
must be rctali.e l ut -home; so that
not more t:an four oi five hundred
thousand men can be sent to Kuiope.
Two and a half milJr.. tons of ship-
ping will lie necessary to trans mrt
and supply 1C division. and the to-
tal American shipping even allowing
for confiscated ships bud new con-
struction will be by spring only four
millions of which the navy requires
"Any extensive transport of Amer-
ican troops would cause serious dif-
ficulties i'i supplies to England and
France It must also be remembered
thut the U-boats arc sinking more
and mcie ships dally.
"Finally the fighting value of the
American troops Is not great prob-
ably ahc.ul equal to that of the Ru-
manians and there ce.lalnly will be
fewer of them than of ltumaulaiis.
So. (lern .ny will have nn easy task.
In fact. It is doubtful whether the
Americans will risk tho ventur of
sending n arniy to Eitrcpe at all.
