McAdoo's Hint o? Higher Taxes
Rouses Virginia to Loan Needs
Secretary Gets Warm Welcome to Old Capitol of Jefferson
Davis, Which ip Just Awakening to Fact American
Liberty Is at Stake in War
By Ralph Block
RICHMOND, Va., April ?^Secretary
McAdoo penetrated the edge of the
spring straw hat belt at noon to-day
in his first move South in the third
Liberty Loan campaign. Richmond,
which is the homo of the cigarette and
'. lied industries, opened its'arms to
the Secretary of the Treasury and did
its best to convince him in a half-day
that the Sixth Federal Reserve Dis?
trict is in no need of urging to more
than complete its quota in the money
drive against the enemy.
It is very easy to generalize about
the South, and there are many ai<Js to
generalization. Th- ro is the Southern
accent, "you-all," and the memories
of what is alway? called "the war be?
tween the states," and the negro prob?
lem and a dozen other aids to easy and
lazy judgment of the South.
Yet in son . . ; it ; ?n't the South

Mere flag an?!, lip patriotism is not
patronized here, and though the deco?

"If they were apathetic once, they
are so enthusiastic now that they may

D is in this fashion that the South
is no longer the South as it is con?
ventionally known, it has an air of
activity all its own, silent, repressed
? ven, yet actually energetic and active?
ly engaged in getting at a necessary
job. Doubtless it has not lost its real
flavor ? :' id mtity. Some of it was re?
turned to me in the answer of Gov?

the South's understanding of the re
adjustmen * of democracy that appear
to be awaiting the end of the war.
McAdoo'a Service to Virginia
"I don't believe our people have gone
?o far as to understand democracy in
that sense ye*,," he answered. "The
democracy that comes to their minds
,vhen they hear the call to fight for it,
is the democracy' of our Constitution,
the democracy of the free institutions |
that our fathers have handed down;
to us."
Secretary McAdoo is a Southerner,
too; yet it may be believed the wel?
come Virginia* is giving h im to-day !e
rives more from an actual service he
once rendered*, the state than from the.
emotion of brotherhood. Virginia al?

Anonymous let! rs received by city
departments, accusing Abraham Freid
man, 555 Hudson Street, of various of?
fenes against the lire laws, the weights
an-.i measures regulations and the food

1 .: -. the fourteen year old daughter
of Samuel Charnrk, of the whi lesale
grocery firm of Charak ??; Meyerowitz,
against whom Friedman testified in a
recent Food Board hearing, the Food
Hoard announced yesterday.
As a resuit of the Investigate n,
Charak, aged fourteen; her sister
Anna, aged seventeen, and her father,
.* ppi ared before Alan Fox, head of the
i o? d Board'3 burea : of complaints,

but said her father knew nothing about
it Anna said her* father did not. know,
but had advised Tilly not to write them.
The father said he did not know ex?

The Food Boar! ig puzzled to know
what to <io with the case, but if possi?

Wife Sues Widow
She Tried to Shoot
Mrs. Harbeson Accused Mrs.
Renner and Mother-in-Law
in Alienation Action
Mrs, Catherine G. Harbeson, who a i
little more than five years ago tried to '??
.-.hoot Mrs. Helen Frances Renner.

Mrs, Renner sud Mrs. Julia Wood Har
b( . ?:' 41 West Sixty-ninth Street, .
1er mother-in-law, who has a fortune
of more than $1,000,000.
The complaint has not yet been tiled,
because, as stati I by counsel for the
I '.. ? tiff, Mrs. Harbeson was unwilling
to place her charges on file if her
mother-in-law ar.d Mr3. Renner should
not to P.ght ': r suit. They have
;; gniiied their intention of seeing the
matter tc the end by filing their an?
swers, d m y i rig all the charges, so Mrs. !
'.' . tained a court ere r ; es -
train;.- to ite her complaint after the
? tpiration ot the time usually allowed;
by law.
Harbeson is the proprietor of a worn?
? n's apparel store at Columbus Avenue
and Fifty-fifth Street. This store.
?here Mrs Renner was employed ns
;alesw{*nian, was the scene of the at?
tempted shooting in December, 1912.
Mrs. Harbeson rushed into the store
and pulled the Itrig ge r of her revolver,
the cartridge failed to explode.
She was arreste?!.
It is alleged by Mrs. Harbeson that
Mrs-. Renner alienated the affections of
ii.ai ? son, from whom his wife obtained
? irati n about thiee years ogo, and
- ? was "ai I-'.: and abetted" in
?his by Hurbeson's mother, who "closed
the door" to her and entertained Mrs.
Renner. The latter is a widow and has
a son.

Jurors' Fees Give New Impetus
To War Savings Stamp Campaign
Quick to Respond to Invita?
tion to Invest Their
City Checks
The City Chamberlain's office has
devised a. way in which the money New
York pays to citizen jurors may be
turned to the oid of the nation. The
War Savings Committee, with head?
quarters in 31 Chambers Street, an?
nounced yesterday that City Chamber
tain Alfred -I. Johnsen has had notices
printe 1 arg ng all jurors to invest
their fees in thrift ?tamps. The notice
is being inclosed with every fee check.
It reads:
"?The inclosed check is for your jury
fee. Unless you feel you need the cash
at once, why not help the government
and the boys 'over there' by buying
war savings stamps with this check
now ?
"Your service on the jury was a
local civic duty. Your investment of
this little sum will be a real patriotic
service to the nation."
Chamberlain Johnson personally
s'.irns every one of these letters. He
jrive.s credit for the idea, however, to
John J. Martin, bis secretary. Mr.
Martin has been very active in war
savings work since the national
drive began and has formed a 100 per
All Schools to Adopt
Anti-Kultur Plan
New York System May Be
Used Throughout the
Coun try
New York's plan of fightinp the
spread of German kultur in the school?, I
it is believed, will be adopted through?
out the country. Frank P. Wilsey.
vice-president of the Board of Educa?
tion, said yesterday that he was cer?
tain the system proposed by the board
could be introduced into every school
without incurring one dollar of addi?
tional expense and without takiritr away
from the pupils any pari, of their pres?
ent curriculum.
The need of a ccfirse of study, ac?
cording ti Mr. Wilsey, which will have
as its keynote the inculcating of pa?
triotism in the minds of the ch
of the country was made painfully evi?
dent by a test recently conducted by
the Institute of Public Service.
A series of questions bearing direct
ly on .he reasons for America's par?
ticipation in the war was submitted to
186 high school students. The same
set of questions were asked 31 state
and city school superintendents
of the sessions of the National Edu?
cation Association, heul recel tly a1 At?
lantic City. Incorrect, answers were
made by 44 per cent of the * g
students, and 34 per cent of wr? r.fr an?
swers were made by the schoi I
int? n lents.
.Tost how far German propaganda has
spread in this country was in icated,
in the opinion of Mr. Wilsey, by the
fact that 52 of the 186 pup Is I
