Aug. 22.-.\n antidote to fho opinions of Generals Von Blume and Von Lleberi. .who see a menace Sn a.large American army on the west-cm front, already have appeared in the Cologne Zeitung. To calm the German public, the Tuesday edition of J he Zeitung contained a long article, attempting to prove by statistics that America cannot possibly send 300,000 men to Eui-ope in a month. The article declares that more than 40 troop ships already have been sunk. It continues: "It is the fine flower of American manhood which now is at the front; namely, the old regular army, plus abotit 40,000 of the Bfcst sturdy and adventurous elements, who volunteered at the outbreak of the war. Then there vrtU be contingents recruited from the New England States who are the best educated and keenest fighters, because their heart is in the business. "So we get an aggregate of from 200,000 to 250,000 picked men, but � once those are used up, the picture will be altered because they cannot be replaced." The Zeitung believes that compul-Bory military serv,ice is widely opposed and is being evaded (n the United States and it builds hopes on the slender basi.s that American casualty lists will increase this alleged repugnance. SCAIHING m U, S. IPL D Washington, Aug. 22.-Failure to adopt successful foreign airplanes and motors, waste of millions of dollars of aircraft appropriations, dominance of the airplane program by inexperienced automobile manufacturers, "un-syslematid and ineffective" organization and excessive profits to manufacturers are among criticisms made by the sub-committee, of which Senator Thomas of Colorado was chairman.
