Mt. Pleasant and Southeast
Grade Pupils to Begin
Under Handicaps..
Washington school children living j
In the Mount Pleasant district and
in the Southeast, near the Navy
Yard, will receive their schooling
this winter under a handicap whicti I
the Board of Education is endeavor- j
In* to mitigate as much as possible. I
Stephen E. Kramer, assistant
superintendent of schools, made this j
announcement yesterday in a review
?f the difficulties which the school I
board will have to offset before
crowded conditions certain to pre
vail can be cut down to normal.
"Pupils in the third, fourth and
flfth grades, a^ well as the first ana
second, will be assigned to half-day
classes in several sections of the
District," Mr. Kramer continued.
"I do not expect pupils in the
sixth, seventh and eighth grades
will have to put up with half-day
'According to our present arrange- i
ir-ents. in order that "the teacher
would get in her regular amount of
working time, she would give an hour j
etch day to the coaching 'of back- j
ward pupils.
"Of course we anticipate trouble in
securing enough teachers, especially
ir the face of the half-day classes,
which will call for two teachers where i
one did the work before, but there is
no doubt but what we will have a
full roster when we open the school
doors this month."
Mr. Kramer announces that the
morning classes would be in session
from 9 until 12:30 and the afternoon
from 1 until 4:30.
When the wheels begin to work
more smoothly after January 1, Mr.
Kmmer says he expects that seventy
five portable schools will be in use.
Twenty of these schols are not yet un
der construction.
The plan of half-day classes is not
satisfactory to the Board of Education, j
but it is the best they can do under
the present "temporary" circum
stances. I
It is the belief of the school officials i
that a great portion of the war in- j
flux, especially those families withj
small children, have located in the I
Capital permanently and that it is up !
to them to adjust themselves to this

Golatta's Brother Assured
The Drowning Could Not
Have Been Prevented.
Daniel Grbla^a, who came t?!
Washington from New York to In-1
; vestigate the drowning of his broth-!
; er. Joseph Golatta, at Colonial Bead*
last Sunday, was assured yesterday
! that everything possible had been
done to save his brother's life. ?j
Reports had been circulated that
Golatta. who was a tailor here, had
been allowed to die without effort'
to save him. It had been reported
'that he fell from the gangplank of
' the steamer E. Madison Hall.
These facts were proved false in
an investigation conducted JointlyI
I by the dead man's brother and the;
1 officials of tlio Washington Steam
boat Company.
Charles Hertz, general manager of
I the company, dived into the darkened
water about the pier along with
practically every member of the
crew in an efTort to save Golatta.

headquarters). Later she told Miss
Cavell that two men she had seen
there tallied with the description I
had given her of two men I had met
and that they pretended o know all
about Miss Cavell's activities. This
was not true.
"The following day six German
policemen went through Miss Ca

The intimate personal itory of the man who led
America's forces to victory, told for the first time,
will appear in a series of articles, the first of which
will be printed in THE WASHINGTON HERALD Sep

This great story was written for The Washington. Herald by
HAROLD F. WHEELER, who traveled to every place in this
country where Gen. Pershing had lived or had been known, and
gathered at large expense a great mass of interesting detail,
which makes the story above all things a human document
certain to appeal to all.
The incidents of Gen. Pershing's life were obtained from
relatives and intimate friends of the General, and the itory is
illustrated with valuable ph6tographs secured from their private

the signal for vocal achievement, and
St. L?ouis sure achieved some husky
waves In the course of the day.
New Note of AMUranrr.
Members of the President's party [
thought they detected a new and
hopeful eloquence In his speeches to
day. Usually the President, in the I
course of an addreiis. receives gen
erous applause, but seldom is it of I
n vociferous nature. But todsy h* j
put a certain sting in his most im
portant sentences and it went big |

the President addressed the mem
bers of the St. I?uls Chamber of 1
Commerce and their wives, he was '
introduced as the "most distin- !
filiated cit xen in all the world."
decltied he was unalterably op
posed to any changes in the treaty,
and as for Article X, he said:
"I stand for it absolutely."
If Article X is chanjretf. the Presi
ident declared, he would tell the sol- |
diers. who had fought to end the |
war, they had been betrayed. He
told how he would like to ask the
Secretary of War to summon as
many of the men as possible to an
open field, where he could address
them, where he could stand humil
iated before them, and tell them he
had failed to attain the promise he
made to them.
"I would tell them," he said,
"'You are betrayed. You fought for
something you did not get.' "
Faith In Japan.
The President also explained the
Shantung award to his St. Louis
I audience, and he strove to ridicule
the action of the Senate with regard
to it. The President said he had
[ faith in Japan's promise to return
I the province.
I "But how." he asked, "will these
I gentlemen give Shantung back if
i not with the league of nations. How
?if these genilemen don't want to
engage in foreign wars. Their idea
| of getting into trouble seems to be
[in standing for the largest number
of unworkable propositions. If you
are China's frlenfl are you to scuttle
and run? That's not tne kind of
an American I am."

ing movement of the President's
hand enabled him to proceed within
a few minutes.
Recause of the character of the!
audience, comprised exclusively of
business men. the President placed
great stress on the need of a repara
tion commissloh and the imperative
need, he said, of an American repre
sentative on It.
St. Ivouis. Sept. 6.?Following 1?
the text of the President's address:]
I have sometimes heard gentle
men discussing the questions that
are now before us with a distinc-1
tion drawn between nationalism
and internationalism In these mat
ters. It in very difficult for me to!
follow their distinction. The great-'
est nationalist is the man who1
wants his nation to Ire the greatest
nation, and the greatest nation is'
the nation which penetrates to the
heart of its beauty and admission
among the nations of the world.
With every flash of insight Into
the great politics of mankind the
nation that has that vision is
lifted up to a place of influence'
and power which it cannot get by
armies, which it cannot get by
commercial rivalry, which it can :
get by no other way than that
uplrltual leadership which comes
from a profound understanding of
the problems of humanity.

War Wu Dfiicned.
The war that has Just been finished
was no accident. \kny man -who *.iss
followed the politics of the world
up to the critical break must have
known that that was the logical out
come of the processes that '.lave pre
ceded It; must have known that the
nations of ihe world were prepar
ing for thai very thing and w%re
expecting It.
One of the most interesting things
f.ist I roalised after I got to the
other side of the water was that the
mental attitude of the French peo
ple with regard to the settlement of
the war was largely determined by
the fact that for nearly fifty years
they had expected it; that for nearl/
forty years they had dreaded by the
exercise of German forcc the very
thing that had happened, and their
constant theme was:
"We must devise means by which
this undesirable fear will be lifted
from our hearts. We cannot, we will
not live another fifty years under the
cloud of that terror."
Tlie terror had been there all the
time and the war was Its consum
mation, and it had been expected be
cause the politics of Europe were
based upon a definite conception;
that conoeptlon was that the strong
had all the rights and that all tr.at
the weak could enjoy was what the
strong would peVmit them to enjoy;
that no nation had any right that
could not be asserted by the exercise
of force, and that the real politics of
Europe consisted in determining how
many of the weak elements in the
European combination of families and
nations should be under the influence
and control of one set of nations;
how many of those elements should
be under the influence and control of
another set of nations.
