daj. M. Elizabeth Barter, divisional com

riariuer ui uic oaivauuu ^ i uij , auu wci
ifficers, has impelled her, she said today,
o Inaugurate at once a comprehensive
lystem of relief work for the poor of the
District of Columbia. In addition to the
;stablishment of a "bread line" Maj.
3arter will also inaugurate a "soup line."
\t 7 o'clock in the morning unemployed
nen and boys who apply at the headquar:ers
of the Salvation Army, 030 Pennsylvania
avenue, will bo given hot coffee
tnd rolls. Between 11 o'clock a.m. and
L o'clock p.m. the unemployed will be
'urnished with hot soup, and those havng
hungry families may take some of
he soup to their homes.
Maj. Barter said that more than 1.100
vomen have been rescued from lives of
lepravity and taken into the homes of
he Salvation Army throughout the counry
in the past year, and are now enraged
at honorable employment secured
'or them by officers of th? army. This
s but one of the many phases of the
vork of the Salvation Army, she ex>lained.
whose motto is that all sufferng
poor persons are worthy of food when
hey are hungry, warmth when they are
old and clothing when they are naked.
Suffering in Silence.
The army is enabled to find many famiies
the members of which.are suffering
n silence rather than risk the entry of
heir names on any records as paupers or
>ovorty stricken. Swift relief is extended
o such, Maj. Barter explained, and the
lames of those relieved are kept inviolate,
rhe members of the relief squad of the
salvation Army penetrate into the noisome
alleys and tenements of the District
tnd search out the distressed and starvng
and afford them almost instant relief.
Phere is no delay, once a case is reported,
ind soon a lassie or laddie clad in blue
ippears on the scene with a supply of
ood, fuel or clothing. Several families

cold wave now approaching will be widespread,
freezing weather extending as far j
south as near the coast of western Florida.
Following showers here late this afternoon.
the first of the cold wave is expected
to put in its appearance with a
marked drop in the temperature. Northwest
winds will accompany it and the
skies will remain fair. It is also the
expectation that the frigid wave will remain

weather service, announced today that
the cold wave will spread over Delaware,
Maryland, eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey,
eastern New York, Virginia, western
New York. West Virginia, North Carolina.

In some localities the wave will
be accompanied by snowfall.
The warm and mushy spell which came

The Department of Agriculture is the I
proud possessor of a zebras?in fact, it
is the proud possessor of two?but what
the plural of zebras is nobody in authority
seems willing to say. The fact remains
that there are two of them out
at the Agriculture Department experiment
station, and they are the first hybrids
of the zebra born In the United
States and the first of this particular
sort of hybrids born anywhere. The
mothers of these two youngsters were
simon-pure Texas burros, dark colored, i
with light points. The father is a greavy, j
one of the two zebras sent by the Em- ]
peror Menelik to this country. The other j
died. The Department of Agriculture j
was anxious to raise a hybrid from the j
greavy zebra, for it was thought that j
it might prove a valuable animal for a j
beast of burden, and as there are not j
many greavy zebras in captivity it was j
tlie more desirable to have one of his J
The greavy is a decidedly larger animal j
than the common zebra, and it is to be ex- j
pected that the progeny will be a fairly )
large animal. One of the zebra's foals j

for though the burro is used to all sorts !
