Congress is to be congratulated upon having ??me to the rescue of thousands and tens of thou sands of war workers in Washington. Probably not less than $10,000,000 is to be spent in the construction of barracks and rooming estab lishments for the new hosts of government em ployes summoned here from all corners of the na tive. This is what the action of the House yester day means. Although primarily meant for the housing of ship workers, steel artisans and others ? the industrial centers, the needs of Washington are to be recognised in the general bill which has now emerged from the Congressional hopper. A rent administrator will not be needed in the city if the housing problem is met in adequate fashion by the government?as it should have been met months ago. It is all very well to shout and ?pout about profiteering at the battered heads of th? resident population of Washington. When the demand for a certain article surpasses two. and three times the supply of it, a certain condition is created, and certain results ensue from it. An ex cess of demand over supply inevitably means that tba seller is going to accept the best price that is offered him by the purchaser. Much of the out cry over profiteering in room renting, etc., has been due solely to the fact that an artificial level of prices was established by those newcomers who were able to make extravagant offers to obtain what they wanted. Once this level was established; for instance, whrn Mrs. A. knew that Mrs. B. had been offered a certain price for her apartment, or for her rooms, a vicious circle was created, the re sults of which we all know. To place the blame for such a situation on the shoulders of the people of Washington is ridiculously unjust. The Secretary of Labor is to be in charge of the construction of the dormitories. A number of interesting questions spring to the' lips of the Washinjtonian. Where are they to be built? Are they to provide for war workers with families?that ia, to contain apartments of several rooms?or merely to be built on the single-room principle, largely for unmarried women who are employed in minor clerical capacities at small salaries? What scale of rents will be established? Will summertime conditions in Washington be taken into account in locating the quarters? The Secretary of Labor is embarrassed at the outset by an amendment inserted in the housing measure by Representative Sherley, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, to the effect that specific plans and details must be drawn and placed before the Appropriations Committee for approval before any appropriation for construction '* Washington can be drawn upon. In other words, all plans will be subject to the veto of the commit-' tee. Rush work under this condition is hardly to be expected; particularly since procrastination is one of the prerogatives of Congress which it will never abandon. It is a pity that the .housing prob lem cannot be tackled forthwith without further re strictions imposed by Congress. All sorts of in fluences will be brought t<F hear upon Congress to prevent any systematic housing scheme from being worked out. Officials of the Department of Labor have no w 1 OPe" their Prelimin?ry survey save that Strict k C?me fr?m tHe 'nv?5,'B*ti?nt into the aimed tn conditions last winter-which armed to expose the conditions then existing rather ration KoT^ ^ ?r pr0^'" of ameli^ ration. *0r that reason it is difficult to get them to discuss their problem. They state. however, ,h? home?n'*' ,P0'UbIe h0"*"' duP'ex and triplex and^harrl'lt cons,??* as well as dormitories ton will h'" |S?k '?"?'?? coming to Washing ton will_ be laboring under no disadvantage as the unmarried workers.

P>?? for those designed for naval turn factory workers. Quarter, for the War and N*vy Department workers could b? erected in Georgetown, which ia tapped by two car lines either one of which can be expanded without diffi- I cultr to meet new needs. Perhaps the development of population along Wisconsin avenue would hasten the day when it has more direct communication with the city proper, just as the development of Mount Pleasant is making the need of an Eighteenth ,^ynth ,trt?'t car line more pressing every 7 W*r it n^ht U ?ad visable ta consider the eenstraetioa of government worker*' quarters in either the Mount Pleasant or Rock Creek valley sections, in view of the traction congestion which already exist* there. . It goes without saying that these barracks are to be only temporary quarter*; thjt worker* forecd to live in them by (tress of present Washington conditions will constantly be on the qui vive to go elsewhere. For that reason the effort* of private builder* to meet the new condition* should not be slackened. The government plans to meet an emergency in an excellent way; but it does not pre tend to have found more than an emergency solu tion. Americans in Uae. It will be a source of pride to all Americans that as an emergency measure our troops in the training camps behind the line* ift France are to be brigaded with the French ami British divisions; in other words, are to lose their identity as American units and become an integral part of the two main allied armies. Military experts here say that an American bap tism of fire in this fashion till be one of the most inspiring and effective things for the allied cause. Not only will it have a direct and immediate influ ence on the morale of eur friends aero** the water? as already shown by the comment of the London press?but the use of the soldier* in this fashion is the only manner in which they could be used on the firing line in their present raw and untrained condition. We need no further warning of the great crisis confronting civilization when we find that this manner of increasing the allied reserves is deemed necessary. , Now, it wilt be easy to brigade our troops in with the British and French, even with such small units as the company and the battalion?and, in deed, it will be necessary to break up our regi ments in this fashion to gain the fullest efficiency from the "merger." Literally our men will be fight ing side by side and shoulder to shoulder with the Tommies and the poilus. For the time being the American army?save that portion of it holding the Lorraine and Toul sectors?will go out of exist ence. In a few days, perhaps, the news will be streaming from the cables of how pur men acquitted themselves in some glorious counter offensive, or sustained some new onrush of the* Boches. All the dispatches coming through last night in dicated that a new and greater phase of the titanic struggle is about to open. Hindenburg is not yet ready to confess defeat. How could he be, unless he is willing to turn the Prussian chalice of power downward? Your Boy's Morals Safe. American mothers with boys in the armies?a word of cheer. Don't worry about the'moral* of your boy. Don't figure that army life mean* he is to be exposed more than ordinarily to diseases. For he isn't. Your boy with Uncle Sam's armed forces is looked after even more carefully than when he is at home. In your town he comes and goes as he pleases. In the army he is under strict est wartime discipline. Uncle Sam'* doctors and surgeons are on the job all the time to guard the moral health of your boy. His health is an asset to the army. His illness is a debit. H. H. Moore, secretary of the committee for civilian co-operation in combatting venereal dis eases, says:: "The lad who goes into the army has his time so fully taken up that he has small chance to get into mischief. He is up early in the morning and | works in the open air most of the day. When the I day's work is over there are abundant camp amuse ments to keep him occupied. Leave of absence from camp is hard to get, if there is a big city nearby where authorities have not cleaned up the town to suit the army officer*." This is also true when the boys land in France. The very seriousness of the job they are to under take keeps them close to their camps. They un dergo an intensive training which occupies most of their time. Their days are filled with task* and lessons, the nights in decent amusement. Leave of | absence from camp is allowed with even lest fre quency in France than here. The arrangement is that a soldier is to get a few days off after certain duty in the trenches. He is not free to roam about France or to go to Paris or other big unregulated cities. Instead, he will spend his leave in some large French towns where the American army will undertake police work to see that American boys do not get into trouble. "If people are interested in vice suppression," said Mr. Moore, "I would advise them to look around their home cities. Patriotic citizens should do what they can to protect the boys still in civil life who are in greater danger than their brothers in the army cantonments, so when these J>oy* are called they will be in fit condition." Mothers of Men. When a mother gives her three boys to Uncle Sam, as has Mrs. Cora B. Tallcy, of 1700 Third street northeast, we feel like taking off our hat and exclaiming "Thank God for such women." After all, is there a greater heroism than to raise three boys to manhood and send them all to service, with a smile. We were interested when we heard of Mrs. Talley and her boys, so we asked for a photograph. The mother sent a photograph of the boys, and we had to insist on having one of her, so that The Herald readers might see what one more real patriotic Ameri can mother looks like. Fortunately, the country has countless thousands of such mothers, so that the honors for the ultimate decision in the war will rest with them.' In all wars the mothers are the real heroes? the silent, checrful, unobtrusive heroes. Through out the world homes have been desolated by this war?and never a complaint from those who have suffered most. Nothing in this war has been quite as sub lime as the sacrifice of these mothers. Nothing' to come after the war will make for a finer quality of American manhood than their faith in their country in its time of peril. Colonel 0'Wheat and Colonel O'Corn. (The origin of wheat is lost in antiquity, but corn is almost Certainly a native of America.) By EDMUND VANCE COOKE. Said Colonel O'Corn to- Colonel O"Wheat, "I want to go over. I'd never retreat And I'd stick to the job till the Prussian is beat. But no; for they say you are fitted to roam, But I'm an old fogy; they keep me at home." Stid Colonel O'Wheat to Colonel O'Corn, "I'm a bit of an alien; my ancestry's for'n,. But it's proud you should be; you're American borrt! So it s fit you should stay in the land of your birth And feed the best people of all of the earth."

Continuing the preface to the fif teenth edition of hie "Congressional Government," Wood row Wilson said in 1900: "Jt i? to be doubted whether I could quite say ?o confidently now at I said in 1W4 that the Senate of the United State* faithfully represents the sev eral elements of the nalion'a make up and furniahea ua with a prudent ?nd normally conatltuted moderating and revising chamber. Certainly vested Interest! have now ?ot a more formidable hold upon the Senate than they ?**emed to have sixteen year, ago. Ha political character also has undergone a noticeable change. The tendency seems to be to make of the Senate, instead of merely a smaller and more deliberate House of Kepre sentatlves, a body of political man-1 agers. Still these features of Ita life may be temporary and may easily be exaggerated. We do not know yet whether they will persist, or, should i they peraist. whither they will lead The fact was the Senate waa led eventually to the passage of a con stitutional amendment providing for1 direct election of Ita membership rather than ita aelection by legists-1 tive bodies, or still smaller political I clans which exerciaed unusual re straint over the men selected for this body. j Doubtless the President sometimes reels at this late date that -the Senate does not quite measure up to his ex- I pectatlons But there la manlfeatly a I more thorough representation of the I people s wishes seen In its dellbera-1 cannot ?way from this thought no matter how much he may disagree with the Senate over some of tbe actions It takes.

I hardly revolutionary enough now to attract more than cursory attention. Which indicates the stupendous pace at which we have been revolv ing governmentally dining the past year. We have Just one thought to offer in this connection. And it is that In our judgement the step wasn't decided upon until the gov ernment had allowed the packers time in which to make good?and had also allowed them time In which to pick off some mighty fat dividends. Some of them can af ford to retire now. But when they are retired we hope they'll stay there. Incidentally, we hope that governmental control. whether drastic or semi-drastic, will be more successful than the pretended con trol cm regulation we have been hearing about for the past three or four year?. If it isn't we'll go fas ter toward socialism?that is, part of our population will?than we've gone up to this writing This is written plain in the cards. If the Wisconsin election didn't go to suit you there need be no hard feelings. Really the matter, as be tween Lenroot and Davles, is not of mammoth importance. Both are good American!. Both will act con scientiously and ably. Both are men worth having as friends. Both are good. Neither should have been as* sailed by tha other party, on Qther than purely partisan gfounds?and hardly that at this time. So cheer up, gentle reader, if your man lost. The winner will give a good ac count of himself and will act pa triotically in the things that have to do with America's part in the war. THE OBSERVER. MUSICIAN STRANSKY ASSERTS PATRIOTISM New York, April 2.?Joseph Stran sky, conductor of the Philharmonic Orchestra, announced his American sympathies today, in answer to a demand by Richard Fletcher that the Philharmonic directors drop him as conductor because of his nation ality. Stransky said in part: "While I readily admit that dur ing the first part of the war my sympathies were with the German people, I was not in favor of the policies of the German government. Since America entered the war I decided to take a definite stand with my adopted country. I opened the Philharmonic season with the play ing of the 'Star Spangled Banner' without suggestion or instructions. I come from Bohemia and in this war Bohemia is fighting for her independence and favors the allies. "I have taken out my American papers." OPHELIA'S SLATE. ' New York', April 1? Maybe you know Roy K.
