jof the general plan.
I Forming a very Important part of

bf activity mentioned, the building
has been designed to meet these re
tirements, permanent and desirable
hiatcrials have been employed in cre
ktlng the structure, permitting what
Cvcr elaboration is deemed advisable
o be adjoined as the funds increase.
Among the most important futures
of the building is a great haU serv
ing for indoor recreation for the en
ii! university body, this hall 80 by
540 feet, free from columns, spanned

ENGLAND TO KEEP
LONDON, June 28 Women workers

shops during the war will work at
semi-skilled jobs, principal! in cer
tain new industries which British
capital is already preparing to ex
ploit on a considerable scale. They
will help manufacture articles Eng

They will work here on equal foot
ing with men and with full consent
of organized labor.
In response to appeals of 200,000
munltionettes threatened with being
ruled out of the work shops by "resti
tution of the pre-war labor status,"
tho Amalgamated Society of Engineers
has decided to sanction employment
of women at "repetition" work on
this basis, J. T. Brownlie, president of
the A. S. E says.
Fix Women1! Status.
A series of conferences between the
A. S. E. and their employers began
May 6 to draw up a postwar labor
agreement, including a stipulation
definitely fixing women's status In the
The Importance of this may be
gauged from the fact that the A. S. E.
dominates the mechanical trades,
where the bulk of war substitution of
women took place.
Brownlie declared that:
Munition plants are already under
going remodeling preparatory t0
manufacturing products England
either did not make at all before 'lie
war or only to a very limited extent
Other plants are to be expanded or
reconstructed for the same purpose.
Will Absorb Female Help.
Brownlie believed that this indus
trial expansion together with tha
natural roassimilatlon of many war
workers into so-called women's trades
would absorb a large part of the
present surplus of female he"lp.
Barriers against women will re
main, however, in the skilled occupa
tions of the trade, Brownlie said. All
women who have been replacing skill
ed artisans during the war will have
to leave and seek employment in the
Brownlie said that "for the purpose
of promoting confidence between the
employers and men" the A. S. E. will
insist that the employers go through
the formality of recognizing the pre
wdr rights and prfvllcges in toto (in
cluding the old limitations upon wom
en labor). This, he said, would
demonstrate the employers' "good

1 ON S
NEGRO SAILORS IN
RIOI OVER WOMEN
TO RECLAIM LAND
LONDON, June 28. How- to make
discharged, and disabled or partially
so soldiers and sailors Independent
of public or private charity Is one of
the questions that is at present occu
pying the attention of many people
Thomas H. Mawson, the well-known
architect and town planner, who was
perhaps the first man to see the vital
necessity of arranging for the future
of the disabled soldier, and whose
book on this subject attracted gen
eral and serious attention, has
sketched out a plan for giving the
discharged men a permanent and
comfortablo home with a certainty of
At the same time, while the disabled
or partially disabled men are to
benefit by this, the project is also
open to men who, having done their
"bit," are looking for a settled home
The proposition is to place these
men on reclaimed land around- the
English coast. There are many places
where the tide flows in twice a day
over good, rich land.
This land is to be reclaimed and
given to the discharged soldiers for
cultivation. The British board of
agriculture has already arranged to
survey these sections and build sea
walls to protect the land.
One place has already been started
at Meathrop, a little village near
Liverpool. A corporate body known
as tho Industrial Settlements, In
corporated, has been formed and this
society has arranged for the instruc
tion of tho settlers in the art of af-
forcstratlon and plant growing, ex
pert instructors having been engaged
for this purpose.
All products of the land will be
sold through the society and the set
tlements themselves will be run on a
profit-sharing basis, the organization
taking nothing from the proceeds
and the soldiers dividing the :noney
according' to prc-arrangement.
The reason for asking for land near
large centers Is that it has been dis
covered that soldiers who have been
used to mingling with tnel- fellows
In camps and fields on tho various
battlefronts are not willing to go to
places where they may be shut off
from companionship, except at some
expense of time and money to 'each
more crowded districts.
Because Congress cut down the ap
propriation and number of employes.
the Public Utilities Commission of
the District faces a serious situation
during the coming year.
It is possible that the commission
will not be able to carry on as ex
tensive work as It has been doing.
Ben Allen, executive secretary of
the Commission, said today that in
event a big problem faces the com
mission during the coming year, the
commission will be greatly handicap
ped and hardly able to handle it.
Probably the greatest trouble will
come in the loss of $10,000, which
money would have been used for
general expenses. An appropriation
of $20,000 was cut down to $10,000 in
the present District appropriation
bill. This appropriation is used large
ly to employ experts to study traffic
problems In the District.
Congress also reduced the salary of
the engineer from $3,600 to $3,000.
Mr. Alien states he does not think he
can get a competent engineer who
will work for this amount.

Congress Must Pass District
Bill or City Must Ask Busi
ness Men to Wait for Pay.
Unless the District bill Is passed
and becomes a law by next Tuesday,
the District Commissioners will ask
credit from business houses of Wash
ington. Alonxo Tweedale, District auditor,
said today he would issue orders for
maintenance supplies "subject to ap
propriation." Failure of Congress to pass the
District bill has put the District In
a precarious position. For the past
two months the District has been
getting its supplies on credit and It
was hoped the District could start
the new fiscal year on a cash basis.
Only the maintenance supplies will
bo bought next week, Mr. Tweedale
says, and other necessary things will
have to wait until the bill is passed.
The Commissioners anticipate no
difficulty In securing credit from
Washington's business houses.
According to William Towers,
deputy auditor, the District owes over
$250,000 to various business houses
"All of this money Is In the de
ficiency bill and we have hopes of Its
passage by the first," Mr. Towers
said. "The District is very anxious
to pay its debts and Is waiting Im
patiently for the appropriation."
