There will be no preferences for per
sons of prominence or wealth on any

One case recently helped in bring

inspectors. A railroad president, trav

A long lins of diners was waiting to
be served on the over-crowded Penn
sylvania express. ? .
Pu*h to the Frest.
The railroad president and his wife
pushed ahead of everyone in the line
and were recognized by the dining,
car conductor. Two persons rose from
a table, the corporation president and
his wife were passed into the scats.
K very one else was kept waiting. Pro
l tests from those who had waited
patiently for more than half an hour
were met with the curt reply:

Protests were carried to the director
general. The dining car conductor was
summoned to Washington. He received
brusque orders to give% preferences to
no one, under penalty of being re
moved from his place.
Al<Wst immediately the decision was
arrived at to send out inspectors.

A Letter to The Washington Herald
To the Editor of The Wash
ington Herald: After reading
your article regarding the mur
der of Miss Medley, a nurse at
St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Thurs
day morning, we, the employes
of St. Elizabeth's, feci as though
we should thank you for the in
terest you have taken in trying
to get the correct details, as the
other papers certainly gave poor
| accounts of it.
And when you say the mur
der was due to the shortage of
help, you say what is exactly
trt*. And the shortage of help
is not entirely due to war condi
tions, but rather to the miser
able working conditions, small
salary, long hours, etc.
In one of the evening papers
l Dr. Chapman, our assistant' su
perintendent, states that Harry
Oberle, the patient that com
mitted the crime, has never been
regarded as a dangerous man.
We wish to state this is abso
lutely incorrect, as he has al
ways been regarded by other
physicians and nurses as danger
ous. A "man that talked for
hours at a time about shoot
ing, or cutting; a man that wore
wristlets and was secluded in a
strong room for months, not
considered as being dangerous?
His records will show that he
has brutally assaulted his nurses
and fellow patients during his
confinement here. And then,
after (supposedly) knowing the
character of this patient, to per
mit him to work in a dining
room where he had ample op
portunity to get knives or other
dangerous weapons, and only at
tended by one 16-year-old girl,
certainly looks like neglcct by
the ones in charge.
We think this should not be
smoothed over and let drop, but
should be investigated by the
proper authorities and steps
taken to prevent such crimcs in
the future, as under the present
conditions we feel sure such
things are liable to reoccur.
It is certainly dangerous for
us who work here and also the
public, so long as such patients
are cared for by women and
At the present time there are
