NEW ARRIVALS
Washingtonians Ordered to
Make Room for War
Workers.
Rooms must be made available for
war workers who are arriving daily
in Washington In great numbers. It
has been estimated that at least 5.000
rooms will be needed to house the
slerks, typists and stenographers who
arrive in early fall. Nearly 500 war
?worlcers are arriving dally and it la
important that they be housed.
There are thousands of homes In
Washington where at ?cast one war
worker could he accommodated with
out discommoding the family. It is un
derstood. Everyone who haa a spare
bedroom will be considered unpatri
otic who refuses to allow it to be
utilized in the service of the govern- |
ment.
The request of the government for
rooms for ?ts workers Includes all
clssses. The pretentious homes are
not exempt and neither are the hum
bler ones.
May Commandeer Room?.
The government must house these
workers, and while no threat haa !
been made to commandeer rooms.
It Is entirely, within the range of ?
possibility tha?t such a situation may I
arise. Unless a sufficient number of
rooms can be found H is regarded as '
probable that the government will
i send agenta around to ascertain the ?
?number of spare rooms. They would
| thereupon fix a price and summarily
I place within It an occupant.
Houses W'hich have been held va- I
' cant so they could be more reidily ?
sold, were recently commandeered ?
hy the government. The govern
ment has the same power in regard
to rooms.
Chance Given to Volunteer.
Complete data as to vacant bed- j
rooms In Washington t' at may be !
placed at the disposal of the ROvern- j
ment for its workers, should be ?
communicated to the Room Regis
tration Office, at 1321 New York
avenue.
This appeal for the performance
of a patriotic duty is made to every I
occupant of a dwelling in the Pis-!
trlct of Columbia and it Is expected ,
th*1 appeal will be answered fully!
and promptly. This message should
not be set aside with the Idea that It ?
is intended for "th?* other fellow."!
Tt Is intended for all houses of all
classes.
A Problem for the Landlord.
The August Woman's Home CTom
panion prints this interesting letter:
"Dear Editor: We are living In half
of a double house, with our landlord
in the other half. When we came in
1 here two years ago our little girl was
just a baby, and the only reason we
were accepted then- was because the
owners knew my husband's people.
Now our little one Is three and a half
years old. and this spring we have
been given notice to move.
"This mnn owns another don Nie
? house besides the one we live in and
? has a four-suite apartment In process

"The suburb we live in (s noted for

Ripresotene Julius Kahn received
from Ran Francisco yesterday a letter
that made his henrt glad. It crime
from ten boya in his home city, all of
them 18 years old or thereabouts, and
they wrote to thank him for his great
fight In Congress to include the boya
of IS and 19 In th? draft.
The letter was written before the bill
had flnaly passed, but the boys wrote
to urge him to do everything possible
to help them get Into the fight.
The hoys who sent the letter are all
employed at the New Mlsalon Theater
In San Francisco and their namca are:
Milton fierran, Thomas E. Curran. Jr.,
Melvln J. Eckstein. Henry Warnecke,
Joseph Impostate. C. Cronin, P. Code,

you. Julius: keep It up.
"We are boys of the varying ages
of 18 and 19. and we want to have
a chance to swat the Kaiser. An
other reason why we want the 15 to
4fi to pass?in years to come our chil
dren will ask us If we helped lick
the Kaiser. What would our answer
be? "We don't want to say 'No.' but
?Tes.'
"Turn that bill. Mr. Kahn. Our
fighting blood la up and we must
fight, so give us a chance. Fight,
fl?ht and fight till It passes."
Mr. Kahn replied to the letter,
praising the boys for the spirit they
displayed In their eagerness to serve
the country.
PROFITS IN SWISS CHEESE.
The report of th? Co-Operatlve
Swiss Cheese Exporters for the busi
ness year of 1917. found In a copy of
the Berner Tagwacht Of June 14, Jttat
received here, shows that the tales
that the Swiss were planning to In
crease the else of the holes in their
famous product In order to make
their business mor? profitable have a
shaky foundation.
Vast profits, made at a time when
the vast majority of the Swiss peo
ple is undergoing great hardships
because of war conditions, cause the
Berne paper te quote sarcastically
from a pamphlet issued by the Co
operative last year In which it was
asserted that the association had
been organized especially for the pro
motion of economic interests of the
Swiss people and the benefit of the
public?From the $Cew York Times.

America Is at war with the Germane?"
"No." replied the Indian. "How

The situation was explained at

WOODCUTTER
MAY BE FREED
FROM PRISON
Lou Hall Still Maintains In
nocence of Eva Roy
Murder.
One more effort will he made to
obtain a confession from 1au Hall,
the woodcutter, held for the murder
of little Eva Roy. If the attempt to
break down his story falls. It Is be
lieved that the man will be released
from Fairfax Jail.
| This Is the decision understood to
; have been reached recently by offl
? dale In charge of the Investigation of
I the murder. Belief that Hall is inno
cent of the crime Is becoming general
i In Fairfax County, especially In the
| vicinity of the scene of the murder.
j YA'Jien the man was first arrested.
I practically the entire community was
I convinced of his guilt, but since the
?case against him seems to have failed
to fasten the crime on hi? definitely.
, the opinion of the accused man's
: former neighbors has undergone a
decided chantre.
Several attempts to obtain a con
; fession from Hall have failed entirely.
?Shortly after his arrest he was con
fronted with ? strip of gingham sup
, posed to have been found in his
house, and matching exactly the spron
.string found tied around the girl's
r neck. Hall declared that he had
never seen the soiled bit of linen
?before, and It was eventually proved
?that the "evidence** had been planted
?against the man by persons Interested
In convicting him of the crime.
1 mnir-iip 1 Mil?.
A few days ago detectives inves
tigating the ease attempted to
scare him into confessing by plant
ing a ghost in the cell adjoining hi.?.
The sheetsd figure called on Lou
Hall to confess and save himself
?from the spirit's vegeance.
The dramatically statred attempt
I was a total failure. Hall refused
to declare himself a murderer even
I to please the ghost.
The authorities of Fairfax county
I have scoured thecounty and part
I of the State In their effort to locate
; the murderer, but In vain.
WHEAT SUBSTITUTES
NOW ON 25% BASIS
One Pound Only Must Be Bought
with Four of Wheat.
No longer do housewives have to
purchase an equal amount of substi
tutes when they buy wheat flour.
According to the new wheat flour
regulations drawn up by Herbert
Hoover, It Is required that only one
pound of cereal substitutes be pur
chased with four pounds of wheat
flour. It Is possible for the housewife
to buy "Victory mixed flour" which
already contains the substitutes and
thus avoid the necessity of purchasing
substitutes.
Announcement-of the new regula
tions was sent to local merchants yes
terday by Clarence R. Wilson, local
food administrator.

THE FREEWOMAN

Women who do not love are free?
All day their thoughts go carelessly;
I know they do not fear at all
When the nights come and the

Rut thoae who love?th'ir thoughts
must trace
All day the well-beloved face.
And they are fearful and grow chill
At the snow's fall and the nlght'a

: And they would fire their hearts to
burn
Like a bright light at the road'a

And flay their souls to keep htm

In the cold night art the white

Softly e night of storms may lie.
