5,000 Soldiers Dance On |
East Plaza of the Capitol\
More than 5,000 First Division regu-j
lars and other men in uniform danced
last night with as many girls from
the government departments on the
east plaza of the Capitol, while sev
eral thousand mothers, fathers, ana;
fnends watched the unusual op^ctacle
from the Capitol steps and the sur
rounding plaza.
The American Legion, under whose
auspices the affair was given, ar
ranged an excellent musical program
played by the Twenty-eighth Infantry
band of the First Division and the
Boy Scouts band. Red Cross girls or
the First Division and Y. M. A.
workers served punch and cakes to
the boys, while girls from the Jewish
; Welfare Service furnished cigarcttes
and cigars. Stuart Walcott Post or
the American Legion had 500 menioerg

Germany Clamps Bars
On Frontier Influx
Berlin, Sept. 16.?The German gov
ernment has announced that anyone
crossing the border without properly
vised passports will be subject to ar
rest and expulsion.
The reason officially given Is the
fact that Germany at present is over
run with foreigners who have no
passports or proper vises, and that
among them are numerous undesir
ables. This influx has been facilitat
ed by the lack of formality and lax
ity in the passport supervision.
"The hole in the West," as the
open frontier toward France and Bel
gium is called, is alleged to have
frustrated the efforts of the German
government to control the influx of
strangers. Negotiations are now un
der way between Germany and the
entente to close the West front en
tirely against uncontrolled passing of
frontiers.
Separation From Austria
Agreed to by Germany
Berlin. Sept. 16.?Germany will com
ply with the demand of the allied
supreme council to declare null 'and
void the objectionable paragraph in
the German constitution looking to
Austria's union with Germany and
providing for Austrian representation
in the German Reichsrath. or council
of the realm, which may be compared
to our Senate. .
Besides the Capitol police force
about 100 Metropolitan policemen were
required to keep the plaza clear for
the dancers. The ladies' committee
was composed of the Misses Anna K.
Thompson, Marine Corps; Hop?
Knickerbocker. Navy; and Charlolt?
Walker. War Risk.
