seuators 'and representatives in eon

Territory of Hawaii, , He said, however,
that none of the President's official

Gregory had beeu considering the mat

Franklin K. Lane. The duties of war

to their desks.
It was in the cable that Mr, Erley
placed his revised estimate at thirty
three and the ealde was almost a week
later than the letter. In the former
he said that he would send definite
list, if possible, on the mail leaving be
fore the party hoarded ship. . His last
list, therefore, stands as all that is
known on the personnel of the party
until that time, though it is evident
that some of thewe have probably drop
ped from the party ami some others
have been added.
The prolongation of tbe session, of
congress and the limited time between
adjournment and resHSeiubling, leaving
very little time for the senators ami
representatives to look after personal
business, is the chief reason for the
smaller number of final acceptances to

"They may not bo so large or so fast

of the people devoting Liberty

parades and meetings.'
Some strange ' experiences fell
to the "lot" of the volunteer work
ers and some remarkable in
stances of lack of information or
knowledge of the loan, its object
and the strength of the securities
were told last night but the most
remarkable of such reports came
from Baltimore where members
of the Women's Liberty Loan
Committee found a woman who
had never heard of the Liberty
Loan and did not even know that
the United States is at war with
Germany.
The committee reports that the
wcrman appeared to be intelligent
and is the mother of several chil
dren. She said, however, that
when her husband came home he
was always too tired to talk and
to tell her the news of the day
and that her children kept her so
busy that she had no opportunity
to read the newspapers.
