USE OF STANDS
Fear of Overshadowing Inau
gural Parade Given as Rea
son by Suffragists.
WILL MAKE AN APPEAL
Suggestion to Change Date to Much
5 Not Receired FTortbly by
Not liking the idea of havlns their own
display of March 4 overshadowed by the
big suffrage pageant, which Is to be
given the da before, the Inaugural com
mittee put a damper on the suffragists'
spirits sesterday by refuslngvthem the
use of the Inaugural stands In Pennsylva
nia Avenue on March 3. and suggested to
the women that If they would consent to
hold their parade on the day following
the inauguration, use of the stands would
be given them free of charge. It is prob
able that an appeal from the decision of
the Inaugural committee will be made to
the joint committee of the House and
Senate on Inaugural ceremonies.
Among the reasons given by the Inaugu
ral committee for declining to permit
the use of the stands on March 3 was
the fact that the stuff used as floor cov
ering on the stands would present a worn
and battered appearance upon the day
of the Inaugural parade, provided It had
already been trampled upon, it was also
argued that It was improper to allow the
stands to be used before the dMe of the
occasion for which tliey are to be erected.
How to accomodate the promised hosts
of 'spectators on March 3 Is causing the
women no end or worry, since me aa
verse decision of the Inaugural com
mittee was announced yesterday. With
numbers of spectators equal to those of
the Inaugural event expected along the
line of march upon the Avenue. It la
claimed that they will be crowded into
the stands by force of numbers.
Want Xo Dote Change.
On the other hand, the suffrage workers
appear to have no desire to change the
date set for their pageant to March 5.
on which date the Inaugural committee
has expressed a wlllfngness to place the
stands a't the disposal of the women
without any compensation for their use.
The date, the suffrage workers say, will
not be altered. Some other way out of
their dilemma will be sought
It is likely that this question will come
before the Joint committee of the House
and Senate on inaugural ceremonies to
day, when a decision allowing the women
the use of the stands upon March 3
may be reached.
Mrs. Richard C Burleson, wife of
Ueut. Burleson, Third Field Artillery,
stationed at Fort Myer, Va.. will keep
her place as grand marshal of the suf
frage pageant, notwithstanding the fact
that she was advised to give up leading
the parade by Mrs Joseph Garrard, wife
of CoL Garrard, commandant at Fort
It was denied yesterday that there wa
any Ill-feeling over the matter among
the women of the post, or that Mrs.
Burleson was being socially disciplined.
Mrs Garrard merely gave Mrs. Burleson
advice from the army viewpoint. It Is

Resolutions Indorsing the Lincoln memo
rial In the form of a naUonal boulevard
between-Washington and Gettysburg
were unanimously adopted Wednesday
night at the first annual banquet of the
National Capital Motorcycle Club, given
at the New Fredonla.
This action was taken following -an
urgent appeal made by Harry Cohen for
the club to go on record as favoring the
Gettvsburir road. He took issue with
those who argue that a national road
would only benefit the rich who owned
automobiles, and declared thousands of
poor people would be benefited.
The banquet was given by tne retiring
officers to the newly elected officers.
Thirty-five members were present.
E. Mitchell Dodson. the retiring presi
dent, in a brief talk, reviewed the past
year of the club and predicted greater
things. He acted as toastmaster. and In
troduced the various speakers. Among
those who spoke were J. S. Berry man.

Neither death, sickness, nor dishonesty can interfere

'careful an'd faithful discharge of its duties.
By reason of its permanence, its financial strength, and its collective
knowledge, the American Security and Trust Company makes the ideal
executor or administrator of estates.
It can often secure a greater income, with equal safety, from the in
vestment of an estate's funds, because it is handling such securities at
all times. It never leaves such funds idle, waiting for an investment of
the exact amount of money on hand, as it always has mortgages of vari-,
In the management of estates it attends to the care of property, col
