2.200 men and women. There will be hun

you see smiling so pleasantly at you dur
ing the week days when you stand at the
oounter to Purchase lace and ribbon and
the myriad other things that the city's
modern department stores have to offer.
There will be bands to lend additional
interest to the section. and thee bands
will be distributed in such a manner that
every marcher will be within sound of
lively marching strains which will enable
him to keep step.
At the head of the division, which will
embrace more than ,000 marchers, will
be A. E. LAndvoight. of the Woodward
Building, and M. Sheets, of the Washing
ton Railway and Electric Company, the
grand marshals for the division. Mr.
Landvolght's personal aids will be George
Kraft, Lawrence Jones and Everett Beal.
The details of the formation of the dlvis
ion haVe been handled principally by Mr.
Landvoight. wno has worked unceasingly
to make his division one of the most Im
pressive !n the entire pageant.
March i Platoms.
All the marchers in the division, will
- pass up the Avenue in column of pla
toons formation, each platoon having a
front of eighteen files and being headed
by a lieutenant. At the head of each sec
tion of the division will be a captain, who,
in some cases will be mounted. The two
marshals and their aids are preparing
to enter the parade mounted. Nearly
all of the marchers will be dressed in
ordinary business clothes and most of
ithe men will wear straw hate. Every
man and woman In the division will carry
an American flag.
The division will form in Third street
northwest, with the head resting in B
street aqd will extend up Third street
for a number of blocks. The marchers
have been requested to assemble at 11
o'clock. but it is unlikely that the column
1will move before 12:30 o'clock. This di
vision will pass up B street to First
Istreet, south to the Peace Monument.
and thence westward along Pennsylvania
avenue. Along the Avenue the guide
will be on the left, that is. the marchers
will be required to look to the marcher
to his left in maintaining the alignment
along the route of march. This is be
cause of the fact that the marchers
wll1 be reviewed by President Wilson
from their left. 1Dvery marcher will sa
lute with his American Bag upon pass
Ing the reviewing stand.
The seventh division will be divided
into eight sections. The first section
will be composed of officials and employes
of local insurance companies and offices.
Approximately 200 marchers are expected
in this section. The section will not be
confined to representatives of any par
I ticular kind of insurance, such as Are,
life, or automobile insurance, but will in

The section will be headed by C. F.

The second section will be composed
of officials and employes of banks, trust
companies, and real estate firms. W.
T. Galliher. president of the District
Bankers' Association, is in general
charge of arrangements for the bankers'
branch, and Joseph H. Kane ha. charge
of details for the realty men's branch.
The bankers estimate they will have 300
marchers. They will wear dark clothing
and straw hats. A large banner designat
ing the section has been prepared. Sol
Minster's band of thirty-five pieces has
been engaged. The realty men plan to
enter more than 100 persons. One of the
distinctive features of their branch will
be an elaborate float, representing one
phase of preparedness.
Another interesting part of the seventh
division will be the third section. This
will be the largest and most impressive
section in the division and perhaps in
the entire parade. It will be composed
of employes of Washington's leading de
partment stores. More than 2.200 em
ployes already have signified their inten
tion of marching. About one-half of
these a.e girls and women, some of them
the heads of big departments in their
respective stores.
Washington has ,long been noted for
having the prettiest department store
girls in the East and South. These girls
are sufficiently interested in national pre
paredness to give a day of their time for
their country. They are the same pretty
girls that you see day in and day out
standing behind the attractive store
counters. politely answering tedious ques
tions, cheerfully displaying goods, affably
chatting wit prospective buyers, and
happily going about the duties of their
Girls Will Be Pretty.
Not only are Washington department
store girls among the prettiest in this
section of the country, but they are also
known as the best dressed, for it is a
well-known fact that conditions sur
rounding the department store girls of
the National Capital are far better than
those in other cities. Consequently, it
would not be at all surprising if the
department store girls form what might
be termed a distinctive fashion unit of
the parade. If you are a young man,

cated sense of the artistio and aesthetic.
