QUESTIONS Ti PRESENT PUN Says Canton Must Supply More Soldiers Than Some States Canton, O., July 14—(Special)—Congressman McCulloch may introduce in the House of Representatives a resolution demanding an investigation Into the system used in determining the quotas of soldiers to be furnished by various cities and states if be f-pds that the plan which has been used is contrary to law, he said, Saturday. Congressman McCulloch declared that the law provides that quotas must be based on actual population, not on figures secured from the draft registration and that if the law has not been observed in this regard, be says he expects to protest vigorously. The war department Saturday Informed Congressman McCulloch that Canton's population has been estimated at 177.G86 as had been unofficially reported. It said the figures had been furnished by the federal census bureau. McCulloch sought further Information Saturday from the census bureau. "It is not fair that Canton should be expected to furnish more men than many of the states in the Union," Congressman McCulloch said. "The fact that Canton has many aliens of registration age, who will not be compelled to go to war, should not be allowed to boost Its quota beyond all reason and compel a much larger proportion of the native-born or naturalized young men to enter service." Several manufacturers complained to Congressman McCulloch Saturday that the Industrial North was being forced to send an unfair proportion of Its young men to war at the expense of the non-industrial southern states. Chairman John T. Blake, ot the South Canton draft board, said Saturday that he thought the quotas would have been more fairly proportioned if the aliens had been deducted from the lists before the lists of registered men had been used as a basis for fixing population estimates and assigning quotas to be supplied. If this were done, It was pointed out. the population estimates still would be larger tn cities of the industrial class, which have a large proportion of young single men, but the figures would then be based on tbe number of young men who would 'be actually eligible tor service and would not be padded by aliens who cannot serve. Under the present quota assigned to Canton, this city will be compelled to tarnish more soMlors than Maine, Delaware, District of Columbia, New Hampshire or Vermont. It will have to furnish twice as many men as Alaska, otmt twice as many as Oklahoma, nearly twice as many as Oregon, and half again as many as Wyoming. Akron, whloh la hit as hard or harder than Canton, will have to furnish aboot M0 more men thea Cincinnati, according to unofficial figures Saturday which place Cincinnati's quota at 2763 and Akron's quota at 2918.

C-, Juply 14—The United States faces a serious shortage of doctors and nurses, not for its armies in the Held alone, but for its civilian population at home, unless measures now being taken by Surgeon General Georgas and tbe medical section of the council of national defense are immediately effective. Dr. Franklin Martin, chairman of the general medjeal board of the council of National Defense, made this statement today. "We have only enough doctors and nurses now for our civilian population," he said. "The armies we are going to send abroad will require great numbers of trained medical people. To be able to send these men and women with our soldiers and still have a sufficient number to look after our people at home is a stupendous problem. While we are sending doctors across the sea we must bend our efforts to creating new doctors and nurses at home—lest we fall into the same terrible errors made by England and France. "The demand was so great that teachers and medical students and even the Internes ln the hospitals were rushed to the battle line. Today there are towns both in England and in France, without a single doctor. "The United States must guard against such mistakes." Dr. Martin believes that so far as possible every medical student should be kept at his studies. These men can do their country greater service by saving life than by destroying it. "Do you believe, than,, that doctors should be exempted from the draft?" "By no means. I believe they should enroll ln the medical corps now before the draft comes," Dr. Martin replied. "For an army of 3,000,000 we shall need 12,000 physicians. Thus far there only 5,000 enrolled. To meet a possible shortage of nurses a very comprehensive program has been undertaken by the nursing committee of the medical section. For an army of 3.000,000 men 30,000 nurses will be required. At present there are only 80,000 registered nurses ln the country. Twelve thousand of these are enrolled tn the Red Cross.

Entente Allies Will Have an Opportunity to Reject an Offer of Peace "Without Annexation or Indemnities"—Peace is Brought Nearer,, However, by the Rumblings of Discontent in Germany—Friction Between the United States and Allies to Be Removed Soon. " , ' * *• ,'y BY JOHN EDWIN NEVIN International News Servlcs Staff Correspondent. Washington, D. C, July 14.—The entente will have an opportunity to reject an offer of peace "without annexations or indemnities." Diplomatic and official circles were certain of this today. Tbe very latest news from Germany indicated that the reform element in the German Reichstag is in control. It will decline to pass the war credits until reforms are assured. And ln connection with these reforms, it is certain, according to all of the Information reaching neutral diplomts here, the suggestion of Germany's peace terms is sure to come. Officials are not. hopeful, however, of an early ending of the war. They point out that the military party is certain to retain control to such an extent that no offer ot restoration of Belgium or Serbia can be expected. And the United States and Great Britain are firm in their stand tbat there can be no thought of peace while the rape of these two nations goes unpunished. Peace Is Brought Nearer. It is stated, however, that the developments in Germany must inevitably bring peace nearer. For actual negotiations to be begun with the approach of winter will cause little sur- price here. But the United States will ln no way let up in its war preparations on the chance that the war will end with the current year. Rather every effort will be bent to getting a real army ready for the field and ln bringing the navy ap to the -highest pitch ot usefulness. Diplomats and -high officials here realize that the nation which is the best prepared to enforce Its wishes through Its army and navy will fare the best in enforcing Us will at the peace council table. In this connection it can be stated as a fact that while the United States is the ally and financial supporter of tbe entente powers, there has so far been little disposition shown by those powers ,to reciprocate with the United States. U. S. Needs Allied Secrets. Official reports now on file in the war and navy departments contain interesting information wblch Indicates that up to the present at least the United States is not ln full possession of the support which is most needed to make the American army potent factors in the conflict. "75" Patterns Not SI*own. American observers wltb both tbe British and the French forces have been denied opportunity of front trench observations which are moet useful. Requests for tbe models and drawings of the latest types of I. rit- lsh and French airplanes and airplane engines, which admittedly pre superior to anything obtainable in this country, have been Ignored up to the present time. And all efforts to get possession of the French 75's patterns, the greatest weapon ever manufactured for offensive and defensive purposes, have tailed. In consequence the war department's ordnance experts are at present taking down two of these guns which have come into their possession and are trying to determine the recoil method which is the big asset of the gun. To Remove Friction Soon. It is expected that eventually these matters, will all be smoothed out but tbey are a cause of minor friction at the present. They have, however, served to emphasize tbe fact that when the peace councils come—and inevitably they must come—the United States will have to be ready to oppose selfishness on the part of her allies as well as efforts of aggression on the part of her enemies. Officials here are very closely watching developments ln Germany. There ia no auch disposition evinced here as is ln evidence ln London, to characterize the reform movement as a "pretense to win easy terms." On tbe other hand the information reaching tbe state department indlcatea that the reform movement is real and that it is almost certain that equal suffrage will prevail'In Prussia. This will cause control there to pass from the Junker element although it ls not expected at present the chancellor will be made answerable to the people. These preliminary reforms, however, officials here believe, eventually will result ln a new deal In Germany which must inevitably make for peace.

SAVE YOUR DISCOUNT BY PAYING YOUN BILLS MONDAY. International Newa Service: London, England. July 14.—Sensational rumors that the Kaiser has lost his throne were current in Holland today. They are unconfirmed. The Amsterdam correspondent of the Morning Post cabled today as follows: "Rumors are current here that Emperor William has abdicated ln favor of his son Prince Joachim. They are unconfirmed and must be taken with all reserve." "Prince Poachim ls the Kaiser's sixth son. ""These"rumors followed cloee upon the heels of a report that the Relchstag has gone upon a strike and tbat the main committee ls still refusing to vote the 15,000,000,000 marks war credit sought by tbe government The political dissensions in Germany continue to grow more menacing and complicated The erisiB is being watched with the moet intense interest by diplomatic circles in London and Paris, for it ia believed that the longer it continues the closer lt will bring the German government to a realization of tbe Inevitable. Tbe allies would rather deal with a disorganized Germany than with one held In the mailed fist of autocracy. A democratized German government would expect easier terms of peace especially so in view1 of the tact tbat tbe United States, tbe leading republic of tbe world will be represented at the council table. Whether the Kaiser had this In mind when he insued his rescript asking equal suffrage for Prussia, or whether tt is an empty promise, given at this critical time to appease the liberals, la a question that cannot be answered until later. It waa apparently tbe original Intention of the German socialists to carry through a domestic reform program before attempting a peace aim program as tbey were doubtful ot the ] centrists attitude, and did not know ■ whether they could obtain a working 'majority in the Reichstag, according to a dispatch from The Hague. Tha nationn I liberals were ready to support a socialistic program but j were undecided on the question of a peace without annexations and indem- |nttiea. A Copenhagen telegram quotes tha Berliner Tageblatt as saying that the crown council on Monday will go down as one of the momentous events ln German history. The Kaiser sat at the head of thn great mahogany horseshoe shaped table with the Crown Prince at hia right. Others in attendance wern Chancellor Von Bethmann Hollweg, the secretary of state, and all tha Prussian ministers. Tbe Chancellor mode a forceful and impassioned speech on the domestlo situation and the peace terms. Chancellor's Resignation Accepted International News Service: The Hague, Holland, July 14.—Ac cording to the German newspaper Tagil:sche Rundshau, the resignation of Chancellor Von Bethmann Hollweg has been accepted by the Kaiser.
