known as finance week, beginning on
Tuesday. Tho object Is to raise a fund
of $5,000 to supplement tho member
ship .fees, and so continue the Institu
tion without raising the cost to in
dividual members.
\\ ith a businesslike d!rcftnc*ss which
would shame many an Institution con
ducted entirely by men. the board has
drawn up a budget of operating ex
penses. Including salaries and main
tenance, it will cost for tile coming
J'**r to operate the central building on
J irtli Street near Main, and the board
ing department on West Cary Street,
a total of $42,350. Dues, board and re
ceipt* from other sources will bring
the Income to $37,360. The amount
to be raised for u^noral maintenance
Is Ju.OOO, and beginning Tuesday mein
oers of the bonrd and a committee of
workers will receive subscriptions.

and make the institution self-mjpport

were subscribed for the main building
on l-ifth Street, a permanent and tlre
proof structure, and for the boardlnir

pleted and paid for, and the institution
is now free from debt. This was not
the case until tho past week, anil It
had been anticipated that the lnstitu
Hon v. ould have to a*k the public to
assume a building debt of ?f>,500, as
well as the maintenance fund, but at
a meeting of the board last l-'rlday It
was announced that all debt on the
building had been paid.

The new building was opened last
spring, and In the limited time has
fully demonstrated its usefulness to
the community. The appeal for a main
tenance fund, the board proposes, will
be an annual on'-, In order that the dues
may b placed at a figure within reach

especially to reach the S.OOO women
employed In factories, the 2,000 In
stores and the 4.000 In offices, besides
many students and others In miscel
laneous employment. While the dues
have been placed at the low rate of $1
per year, the hoard has recently de
cided to have fra- gymnasium classes
three times a week.

A cash contribution to the* Belgian

Girls?If you want plenty of thick,
beautiful, glossy, silky hair, do by all
meuiis get rid of dandruff, for It will
starve your hair and ruin It If you
It doesn't do much good to try to
brush or wash it out. The only sure
way to get rid of dandruff Is to dis
solve It, then you ?? destroy It entirely.
To do this, get about four ounceB of
ordinary liquid arvon; apply it at
night when retiring; use enough to
moisten the scalp and rub It In gently
with the finger tips.
By morning, most, if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or
tour more applications will completely
dissolve and entirely destroy, every
slnglo sign and trace of It.
You will ilnd, too, that all Itching
and digging of the scalp will stop, and
your hair will be silky, fluffy, lustrous,
soft, and look and feel a hundred times
better. You can get liquid arvon at
&ny drug store. It is inexpennlvu and
four ounces Is all you will need, no
matter how much dandruff yoti havo.

It wan discovered yesterday that the
name of A. J). Brockett, of Alexandria,
had been inadvertently omitted from
the list of district managers for the
campaign, and Governor Stuart at once
ordored that he should be included as
the manager from the Eighth Congres
sional District, lie. with the pthor nine
State representatives, will attend the
meeting to-morrow and assist Colonel
Uoykln in perfecting the details of an
organlatlon which is to raise at leaat
>10'\000 as this State's fund for the aid
of the war sufferers In the little coun
try which thus far lias borne the brunt
of Europe's conflict.
Following the meeting at the .lef
ferson Hotel, Colonel lioykin's Rl?h
mond headquarters iwlll be formally I
opened at U04 East Broad Streot for
the receipt of money, provisions and
clothing which -will compoee the cargo
of the Virginia State relief ship. It
was said last night that an adequate
office force would be employed to re
ceive the donations, and that this force J
would be lncrca-sed as the press of the
work demanded.
When Governor Stuart first Issued his
proclamation calling on the people of
tho State to uselet In yiaklng Vir
ginia's ship of succor one of tho most
important undertakings of tho kind
sent out from the Untted States, it
was said that tho vessel's cargo would
be limited to provisions. However, |
Colonel Jloykin and Belgian Consul
Frederick E. Molting were yesterday In I
conference on tho matter, and It was
decided that clothing was also greatly
needed by the war victims, and that
It would be practicable to Include such
articles in tho cargo. All money i
turned in at relief headquarters will be
spent for provisions and clothing, and
will bo sent to Belgium within the
next two or three weeks on a specially
chartered ship, which is to sail from
Norfolk under the State flag.
A great State-wide sentiment In
favor of perfecting tho relief work
which Governor Stuart started has al
ready "been evinced, and corporations,
business firm* and Individuals are
rallying to the assistance of those In
charge of tho work In a manner which
Hems to Indicate that the undertaking
will be a success. Railways through
out the State have agreed to carry
the shipments of provisions for the
ship to Norfolk without charge. The
Remington Typewriter Company yes
terday offered the loan of two ma
chines to the headquarters here. The
Baughman Stationery Company catno
forward with the gift of 1,000 letter
head and envelopes, while the Chesa
peake and Potomac Telephone Com
pany offered to install telephones In
the headquarters without cost. Al
ready a sum approximating |2.000 has
been subscribed In this city, and yes
terday's mall brought Colonel Boykin
j letters from persons in many sections
of the State asking for Instructions as
I to the shipments of donations and
. the character of gifts desired.
Other announcements of Interest
were to the effect that two musicals
and a Belgian Tag Day have already
been arranged for In an effort to swell
tlio amount of money which will l e
used to provision the ship. Mrs. Hor

While tho general managership ot
the campaign will be under the charge
of Colonel Boykln, the ten district
managers will conduct the work of
securing the provisions In their re
spective districts, and will make their
shipments direct to Norfolk. They
will keep In close touch with the Rich
mond headquarters, and will report
from tlrno to time the progress of tho
work In their sections. It is probable
that the ten main divisions will be
subdivided in turn, and sectional man
agers appointed, who will report to
thoso In charge of the district. All
of these details will be arranged at
tho meeting to-morrow, and by Tues
day the campaign will be In full swing.
