proved this. I was asked to be
present and speak as the representa

women at the great meeting in
Paris on that day. over which Gen.
Joffre presided. Gen. Joffre was
seated in the center with myself at

me. while on the left of Marshall

Mrs. Cushman declared there
would be a vast amount of work to
be done by all organizations even
after peace was certain, and that
they would be called upon to con

great sums of money in the work
of reconstruction, helping the men

MUST PROVIDE SAFETY
MARGIN IN COAL USE
So that "a margin of safety" may
protect the public this winter, the
United States Fuel Administration
called the attention of householders
yesterday to the continued need for
conservation of anthracite coal.
While the supply of coal in prospect
wtf] be sufficient fori the winter, pro
vided it js consumed with patriotic
economy, tbo recent epidemic or in
fluenza has reduced the production of
aifthracite from 5 to 15 p?r cent, a
loSs of about 500.000 tons.
To catch up with the required pro
duction to meet the estimated needs
wDl involve increased activity on the
P?*t of miners who have shown great
loyalty in returning to work as soon
a4 possible, although they are not al
ways so efficient as before illness.
Sftnilar co-oper&tion on the part of
the public is asked.
In a recent statement Fuel Admin
istrator Garfield called the attention
ofi the public ?0 the fact that con
servation is Bc^sary on the part
I of every hoomholder, as well aa
eTery industrwn plant, if the needs

WALK TO YOUR WORK TO KEEP
WELL, SAYS CAPT. GOODACRE
If the ?0,000 or more young war
workers here would take old Cap'n
GoO<?acre'a advice he promise that
they, tpo. will become near-century
plants like himself and two of his
comrades, blooming with health as
they approach their 100th birthday.
Walk to work
That is his solution for the transpor
tation problem at the present time
and the secret of longevity.
"Two friends of mine who live up
on the hill with me near Fourteenth
street and Park road walk to work
at the Treasury every morning, win
ter and summer. Comrade Hustln is
87 years old and Maj. Saxon is 91. and
both of them have ruddy cheeks and
every indication of good health."
Capt. D. M. Goodacre is a court
crier in the District Supreme Court,
and he claims also that he walks to
work from his residence, 2616 Univer
sity place northwest.
"I think the end of this war will
see a change in the rising generation,
which was becoming very la*y on ac
count of all the modern means of
"The boys coming back from over
seas will not be afraid of long hikes.
I have three sons in France now and
if they return to their lasy ways
when they return I will cut them off
without a nickel.
"Girls who walk to work will make
better wives, with rosy cheeks, and
boys will make better husbands and
have sweeter dispositions."
The old captain expostulated on this
subject at great length, the gist of
his discourse b?ing that walking to
work was the panacea for almost
every ill, physical and mental.
"I have no desire to aid the car
companies at this time by relieving
congestion," he added, "as I have
not got a bit of stock in either of
them. I merely want to help the
young people themselves."

Despite their absorbed interest

CARE OF EMPLOYES
IS GRAVE PROBLEM
i Army Officer Tells How Govern- j
ment Is Solving It.
A plea for a "broad humanitarian
attitude toward our fellow man, es
pecially the war worker" in view
j of reconstruction days, was made
[yesterday by Capt. Julius I. Peyser,
chief of the Housing and Health
Division of the War Department to
the Twentieth Century Club at All
Souls' Universalist Church, Four
teenth and L streets northwest.
"We must start with the war j
workers," said Capt. Peyser. "as 1
their problem is the most pressing.
The problem to be solved divides ,
into four parts: they must be i
housed, properly fed, given places
with proper sanitation and recrea
"The housing problem is probably |
the most acute.
"Over 100,000 people have come to
Washington in the last fourteen
months. War found Washington
unprepared and ouj; housekeepers
could not face the problem. People
who kept boarding houses did not
adapt themselves easily to condi
"The authorities concluded that
the government itself must erect
dormitories for the war workers and
accommodations for nearly 8,000
men and women will be ready in the
near future in Washington."

SECOND WAR SAVINGS

yesterday announced that a new se
j ries of war saving stamps to be
known as the series of 1919 will be

No Price Fixing on
President Wilson last night was
given a report based on a survey of
the cotton situation by Dr. Thomas
W. Page, chairman of the cotton com
mittee of the War Industries Board.
The report recommended that no
basic price be fixed on cotton by the
government, setting forth that there
is no cotton shortage.
At one time President Wilson fa
vored the fixing of a cotton price, but
later agreed that such action should
be postponed until an official and
thorough survey of the situation
could be made.
