"Thrift Stamp Giifa"
At Navy Yard Cover
Grawl Every Payday
"Just try and beat it if you oan,"
that's the way the Nary Yard em
ploye* fael about their war sav
ings record. With vim these men
and women went "over the top" in
the liberty loan, not forgetting the
war savings, for the total, as sub
mitted by Paymaster C. F. Bennett,
now stand* at nearly $100,t00.
"Buy a Stamp and Give the Kaiser
a Cramp," has proved an effective
slogan with the Navy Tard. and
there's hardly a Navy Yard worker
who has not responded to this op
portunity either to double or treble
his weekly or daily pledge.
No little credit for the splendid
showing made at the Navy Yard is
due the "Thrift Stamp Girls," ten
of them who cover ths entire yard
each pay day with two young men
who make the necessary change.
Headquarters know Just what ihe
pledge of every man Is and his
stamps are ready for him on the
days he wishes them.
QUOTA OF LOAN
PRACTICALLY
DOUBLED HERE
A Million More Would Have
Pi?t a Blue Star On the
Honor Flag.
Wsshington came within less than
Il.tiOMOO of doubling its quota of the
Third Liberty Loan.
That the quota was not doubled, as
was reported yesterday morning, was
verified yesterday afternoon by final
reports from thirty-eight of the forty
three banks in the city.
The liberty loan committee announc
ed yesterday that the small amounts
not yet reported are not thought to be
sufficient to gain for the District's
honor flag the much strived after star,
awarded by the Treasury Department
to communities doubling their quotas.
The quota assigned to the Dis
trict at the beginning of the cam
paign wa- $1?.S70.?W. The total
amount subscribed as indicated by
latest returns last nl^ht was
$24,96l.4.*?0. The District has, there
fore. fallen short of doubling its
quota by $775,55?. This difference
will be 'lessened to some extent by
final reports which will be received
today, as the total sales in the Dis
trict must be reported tomorrow
to the Federal Reserve Bank at
Richmond.
Subscribers Were Many.
Although Washington did not "go
over the top" by doubling its quota
i t the value of the bonds sold, it
did do so in what Is perhaps a
more important aspect of the loan.
The total number of subscribers to
the loan was 127.292, which is
72.-92 more than the number of
subscribers to the first loan And
44.292 more than subscribed to the
second.
In both of the rrevious loans Wash
ington doubled its quota, the amount
I subscribed to the first loan being
.more than $l*.00l>?*?. and to the sec
on<1.
Washington's showing Is creditable
1 particularly because a great many
*uh*criptlons of people newly arrived
in Washington were made through
banks in other cities, their former
homes. At one of the government
departments alone more than $l,000.oi???
was subscribed through out-of-town
banks. This amoun atlone subscribed
through Washington h.inks would
have given the city a blue star on its
honor flag.
KifCgA Bnnk Leads.
The RigKS National Hank led the
banks of the city in the amount re
ported. more than $4,000,000 from 6.000
subscribers. The Federal National
Bank, with $2*17.750 from 8,005 sub
scribers, was second. The trust com
panies of the city were led by the
Washington Ix?an and Trust Com
pany, which reported a total of $1,679.
350 from 14,423 subscribers. The
American Security and Trust Com
pany was a close second with 11,600,000
from 5.350. The Home Savings Bank
topped the list of savings banks with
$1,378,900 from 13,614 individual sub
scribers.
Following is a summary of the re
ports turned in by the several kinds
of banks: Savings banks. $4,146,
800 from 46,015 subscribers; trust
companies. 95.908.S50 from 3i.423
subscribers; national banks, $14.
071.500 from 48.115 subscribers;
private banks, )76.451 from 67 sub
scribers. and the Treasury, $761,050
from 739 subscribers.
Charles P. Light, executive sec
retary of the District liberty loan
committee, stated last night that
the committee Is highly pleased
with the work of the banks and the
volunteer workers who assisted in
the drive and exceedingly grati
fied at the results accomplished.
Hunger Without Headache

Amsterdam, May 7,?"To bear

suffering from headache or other

most people," reads the opening
sentence of a slgnfflcant adver

"though not forming a substitute
for the minimum daily suste

ing prior to the campaign week. May
30 to 27. at the D. A. R. Hall last ,
night. I
Mrs. J. Borden Harriman. recently |
returned from Europe, gave an ac- j
count of her experiences and observa
tions of the Red Cross work in France
and Bjljlum.
Work on Battlefield.
Mrs. Harriman. dressed In the neat
gray uniform of the Red Cross gave a
description of the Red Cross hospitals,
services of the doctors and nurses,
and the canteens, and the work of un
loading and caring for the wounded
at ports of debarkation and near the
trenches themselves. She told of the
work done by the Red Cross in con
necting soldiers and sailors with their
families at home, and of the varied
activities of the organization for the
benefit of the women and children of
the devastated regions of France and
Belgium.
Mrs. Harriman praised the work of .
the American women in England who |
are caring for and entertaining the j
wounded soldiers, but asserted that
they could do no less with the ex
ample of the English women before
them. "There are 1,413,000 women in
England taking the places of men who
are fighting, and that number does
not include those who are in positions
occupied by women previous to the*
j war." declared Mrs. Harriman. 8he
j also said that the work of the Amer
Jicnn Red Cross was the most splendid
Isiorv in history and that the $10),000,000
I i.-; ? ?1 last year had been most profit
ably used, but that there was impera
tive need fo.* more than another $100,
I this year.

Henry White, former ambassador
to France and manager of the Po

was only recently announeed through '
Minister Caldwell at Teheran that the
Shah of Persia had subscribed $100,000
from his personal funds to the Third
Liberty Loan.
Shortage of shipping due to the war
has cut off much of the commerce of
Persia and prevented the accomplish- j
ments of important irrigation pro
jects in the country under English
auspices. As a result, little food Is
raised in Persia and her ability to
buy food in the markets of the world
has been completely crippled.
International Movement Likely.
The headquarters of the Armenian
relief society in New York City was
yesterday notified of the State De
1 partment's dispatch, which came from
j the society's representative in Te
I heran, and it is probable that an in
? ternational movement will be set on
foot shortly to get food to the starv
ing people.
It is also possible that medical units
will be sent to Persia by the United
States and other countries to aid in
combatting the typhus and other dls

Members of the Shipping Board
and Emergency Fleet Corporation
will go before the House Appro
priations Committee today, It was
announced last ryght. to aslc an ap
propriation for the new fiscal year
that will include, besides an ex
pansion of the shipbuilding pro
gram, a vast project for the im
provement of ports and port ter
minals.
Edward N. Hurley, chairman of
the ShippinK Board; Charles Piez
and Charles M. Schwab, vice presi
dent and director general, respec
tively. of the Emergency Fleet Cor
poration, were in final conference
this afternoon with the Shipping
Board Commissioners and Trus
tees. deciding the last details of the
1919 estimates.
Plan Large Expansion.
These estimates contemplate the
building of at least 200 more
wooden ships in addition to the
contracts already let, a large ex
pansion of the steel ship program,
of heavier tonnage to the ship, and
a great project of ship terminal
improvements that include the con
struction of 150 drydocks at the
main shipping ports, with ware
homes and repair shops.
A few ports on the Pacific coast,
San Francisco, Oakland, Portland,
and Seattle, may participate in the
intended development, but not to
the extent of Atlantic ports.
In advance of the conference to
dny with the House Committee.
Shipping Board officials last night,
conforming with the usual depart
mental courtesy, would not make
public the amount they would ask
for, but that the estimates are
large, perhaps larger than the orig
inal appropriation of $1,090,000,000.

Mr. Schwab expects <o operate
the steel yards bo that, instead of
complaining, as some still are ob
liged to. that they actually are
without certain plates or frames,
there will be in every yard a sup
ply of material for three to five
months in advance.
Although the present production
is not adequate to supplying such
a reserve, the board Is encouraged
by the last week's production of
steel plates, amounting to 6?,00<>

This official statement was issued:
"The Attorney General has received
a letter from tho President in regard

his knowledge of English caused
the French authorities to send him

It was In October of the same

In announcing to the Senate the
determination of the Military Af

that "the whole business has been

Congress for airplane purposes an?*
that "it will be no whitewash" f??r
