mand for doctors for the naval reserve
force was particularly emphasized at
the United States Navy Recruiting Sta
tion yesterday. Approximately 2,000
medical officers are needed and Vir

lieutenant Leslie 13. Wiggs, medical
oliiccr at the recruiting station, when
questioned In regard to the Immediate
need for physicians in the naval reserve
force, said:
"It is true that we are very anxious
to obtain medical oflicers for the naval
reserve force, and although Virginia
has already sent a very large number
of physicians to the military and naval
branches, there is still a Rreat deal
snore which she can do. A cry has
gone out that there it: a dearth of phy
sicians in certain localities, but hard
ships we murt all suffer, and f believe
that Virginians are willing to suffer
In order that our brave lads at the
front ami In the navy may have the
necessary medi-a! and surgical attcn
l tion.
This is an emergency, for the war
I cannot be won without an adequate
1 number of tnedi.-.il oflicers. SacrKices
we must all rr.ake and simply because
' a mati is beyond the reach of the draft
Is n<-> re a:;'Hi why he should not l?e

P.ecause the facilities were necessary
for the use of the 1 >rewry-Hughes
warehouse by the United States gov
crntaont as a balloon supply station,
the Council Committee on Streets >*s
tcrtlay voted to recommend to the
Council for adoption the ordinance per
mitting' tho Southern Hnilwav to ex
tend its sidetrack in Cary Street. be
tween Fourteenth and Fifteenth
Streets. The original linan o was
not drawn In proper shape, however,
and the committee referred the matter
to City Attorney Pollard to prepare a
proper paper. The new measure will
I e reported to the nest meeting of the
Council.
There was continued s'.:-;t-.* opposi
tion to the track extension a cer
tain property owners. b-..t \\ : gov
ernment officials explained th.it the
facilities were absolutely r.?-.-e ? ny for
the use of the warehouse t' ?? ob
jection was practically withd;-.. As
recommended by tho c :r.-e. the
ordinance provides that the sidetrack
shall remain In Carv Street on!\ so
'.o:ig as the warehouse i? us* 1 by the
Government. After Its u.e :s iJ.scon

mittee, which met at the C ?> Hall at
10 o'clock, and explained the ii'Cd for
the sidetrack. The 'meeting of the
committee yesterday upset : ar.y pre
cedents, but the situation was declared
t<? be an emergency, since it w.is the
only day the government ofM -iiii:: could
visit Richmond.
After the meeting Captain Stolze is
sued a statement describing the u>e
to vliich the warehouse will be put.
and allaying any danger the pub! c
might have over the tiro hay. a; ' The
statement is as follows:
"Tho government wishes t ? .i 'are
Its neighbors that noiio of the stock
which the government will store
the Drcwry-Huches warehouse will in
any way be detrimental t-? their in
terests, nor will there be any dancer
of tire. For the benefit of the public
which might feel uneasy, we give as
surances that there will at all times
be not less than twelve men o? duty
in tho luildiug, and they will make
continuous patrol trips every t/?? min
utes h'-rh w it! "n aitf. without tli?- build
ing. and on ?-very floor.
"It is a v i I'.-known lact that the
building is equipped with sprinkler
apparatus, arm i:i addition the govern
ment will install thirty-six ten-gallon
fire cxtingulshors and supply sufficient
hose to reach all parts of the build -
ing. Two tire inspections will be made
daily by commissioned olh ?? rs. who
v. ill make written report- as to <? u:
ilitions found by the;;). Furthermore,
all men on duty in the building have
had extensive experience in warehouse
work, and will mtainta'n the best j- ]
slble conditions at ail times."
Tiie work of putting the warehouse
in proper condition for use "f ihe
government is already urii>v way, and
the interior is being rtrepr^-jfed. It is
expected that the buildirig v. il he used

ficc for Their Government. V
t'rging immediate subscription to tho
third Liberty loan with a view of
stimulating interest in the campaign
that is now well under way, Kev. W.
T. A. Haynes, pastor of St. James Meth
odist Church, cited four specific rea
son ? why every Richmond citizen
should invest In liberty bonds In a
patriotic address yesterday morning in
place of his regular sermon.
Kir: t ho called attention to the in
vestment feature and tho absolute t.o
I'uritv that was back of the bonds, in
addition to their being free from taxa
tion. Ho next spoke of the desirability
of buying now instead of waiting for
th<? necessity of having money extort
ed by taxation to continue tho war. Hut
far more Important than the first two
reas? :is were tho last, which were in
the name of simple Justice in half-way
return for the protection that has been
given by the Stats and Stripes, and
for the opportunity of patriotic par
ticipation in the war.
"This is no time for complaining or
shirking." he. said, "nor Is this a time
for criticism. The greatest crisis In
the history of civilisation and of tho
human race i-? facing us. and no man
worthy of tho protection of tho Stars
and Stripes who is unwilling to give
his all to the cause. ?Jf course, we
are sacrificing to some extent now by
responding to the government's re
quests fcr meatless, wheatless and
other days In order to win tho war,
but that is not all. We must give our
money to the last cent if need be, and
go hntless and shoeless should it be
necessary.
M 1ST NOT FORGET COST
OK I.OS IX G liltKAT WAR
"The cost of the war is untold. The
many men that are being killed, the
broken hearts of as many mothers and
others dear to them, tremendous sums
of money?these re the prices that
are being paid. Hut in counting the
co?<???. let us not forget to figure the
greater cost that would be entailed if
we did not win the war. T<et us look
behind the clouds at the silver lining
and the abiding blessing that will f??1 -
low n victorious peace."
With an apostrophe to the S'ars and
Stripes, which looked down upon the
congregation from the wall directly be
hind the pulpit, he ended t! ?? sermon
with a brilliant burst of oratory. "Near
where 1 new stand an immortal apostle
if liberty uttered the electric motto,
' , v e rt i e liberty or give me death." he
said, "and this morning, after a care
ful study of the Issues of the war. I
fe.| in my soul that every American
heart beats in unison with my own
in that the sentiment of Henry Is
equally applicable to the present sit
ua t ion."
1'atriotlc hymns were S'jng through
the c-ntire service, nr.fl at the close the
congregation. le.| by the choir, sang
the "Star-Spangled Hannrr."

Do ^rti^Ur Bit
pELLOW PATRIOTS, what does "war
F time" mean to you? Are you complain
ing because "war time" and "war condi
tions" means coal shortage; less sugar in
your coffee; corn muffins when you're in
the habit of having biscuit; less money than
you think you ought to make?
What about the boys of old Virginia,
shoulder to shoulder with boys of other
States of this grand old Union, who are
fighting for you in France?
For them, the trenches; the pitiless
storms of rain and sleet; the ceaseless deaf
ening bombardment of the great guns:
hunger, thirst, cold and fever; wounds and
?death. For you?a little economy and
deprivation.
The Third Liberty Loan is your oppor
tunity to prove the patriotism that is in
your heart and on your lips.
Your opportunity to show yourself
worthy of the heroism, the devotion, the
self-renunciation of your soldiers and
sailors.
Your opportunity to share, in some small
degree, the sufferings of those who stand
ready to make the supreme sacrifice for
you.
All you can do is little enough. After all,
you are asked simply to lend your money.
Do it, and be glad that you can do that
much and sorry you can do no more.
