June ll. On the eve of Ole nationwide telegraphers' strike, both bodies of congress today acted to end quickly government control of the country’s wire systems.  The senate passed unanimously the bill for repeal "forthwith.” of the law authorizing federal jurisdiction over telegraph, telephone, cable arni radio lines, while the house interstate commerce committee agreed to report legislation ending government wire control June 30, next.  No move was made today by the postoffice department touching the situation, and officials said that none would be made, there turn of wire operations having left the situation to the handling of private managements. At the same time officials lately responsible for the conduct of the telegraph systems were Inclined to discount the possibility that communications would be seriously hampered by the strike of telegraph operators. The threatened walkout of electrical workers was said to have more serious possibilities.  Continue Rates Ninety Bay*.  The senate, in adopting the repeal bill, approved an amendment to continue present telephone rates ninety days, or until the tariffs can be adjusted by state commissions.  Democratic and republican tors joined in support of the bill and also in criticism ing over of the wires suits of government  are  calc various suggestions for the organization of a new German army.  One plan is proposed bv Major General von Francois who commanded a corps in the Argonne opposite the United States army last fall. His ideas have been republished in numerous German newspapers and magazines.  He proposes that 500,000 men should be drafted to service under arms each year, one-half on April I and the other 250.000 on October I. Every mao capable of performing manual labor would be subject to military duty for one year beginning at his twentieth \ year.  The 500.000 annually drafted would be used to defend the coun- I try from attack and preserve order In the interior, he urges. All others capable of working would be drafted on April I or October j I, but after receiving a short course in military training, they would be placed in labor battalions to be employed in socialized branches of industry which have been taken over by the government. These men would thus be engaged in productive activity which would pay for their own support and contribute to that of the armed forces.  General von Francois advocates an army drawn up along the lines of the old model, saying:  “In the training and development of the men democratic innovations should be avoided, and the old military principles should be maintained. One object should be the establishment of the highest possible standard of discipline. The authority of the officers as a class must be restored. The means of enforcing discipline must also be re-established by reviving the military regulations, the court martial system, and the obligation to  two stationed in  MUSKOGEE, Okla., June ll.— Declaring that the city was unable to cope with the strike situation with its small police department, Mayoi John L.
