"Experience is the best teacher,

Miss Straus?.
"Why should not women get to

experience in buying ?nd in that

"Garments' that do not wear are
a personal and national extrava

Miss Strauss advocates the com
piling of reference lists embodying
the composite experience of groups
of women, both as to reliable
makes of trarment? and material?
found reliable for various clothing
needs. Such lista would serve as

yesterday emphasize*! that ?filia as
well aa boys should enter the contest
on "What Are the Benefits of an En
listment in the I'nited States Army? '
There is not a country in the world
that has not produced women who
have done valiant deed? in time of
war. There's Joan of Arc and our
own Molly Pitcher and Baibara Frit-'
chie. Edith Cavell, who was executed
by the Germans in Belgium, was a
nurse In the English army. For the
?aame reason that American women
ire necessary to the success 0f the
?rmy the War Department hiis decid
ed that girls should be eligible to com?
pete in the essay contest.
The majority of children who have
called at the District recruitiii*?; office
for information and literature have
beep girls. P. P. Ulnxton, commis- ,
Bioner of education, in hin indorsement
of the contest, recommended it to
both boys and suris.
A new development In (he prepara
tion for the contest on F??i?rtiary

resentative John F. Carew that
more prizes should be put up as an
incentive for the school children
and that the trophies to be pre

The prize proposed for presenta
tion to the national winner is a

of the War Department, while the
school the boy or girl represents
\ will receive a silver loving cup

loving cup for the school. The third
prixe winner will receive a bronze
medal and the school a loving cup
t.welve inches in height. The cups
?and medals will be of the same dc
j sign and approprately engraved.
; The cups are of sterling silver.
The teachers in Washington have
' spent much time during the past
? week in discussion and study with
the children in preparation for writ
ing the essay next Friday. .\p
proximately 16.000.000 school chil
! dren will write an essay for the
[contest on that day on the benefits

accept the position of executive
s<i-:Tctary of th.- Consumers' League
of th?* MutlitM of Columbia, and
some lOjOnti other girls from ?vvery
State in th?^ I nlun?to prove that
such a novel experiment can be
successfully carried out.
Miss Marshall, who organized the
first school in the Bureau of War
- Bisk lnsnranee for tho training of
employes, entered th*? government
service as a ? lerk November 17.
li?17. She was an unusual clerk
; and demonstrated that fact so
the rough I ? to the officials of the
bureau that she has been mount
ing the ladder of promotions ever
HUgJ T> pieni of Thounand?.
The story of how Miss Marshall
| ?rUBM to Washington from a small
town in Iowa in response to the
?call for war workers is in oome
respeets typical of that of thous
ands of other girls who responded
to that call. In the case of the
War Kisk-Ts. their biggest war
job did not begin until the war
was over and the insurance ac
counts and records of the millions
, of servie*?, inen who were dls

Miss Marshall came to Washing

of B/Vwi people. There she had
already established a reputation a*
a young business woman of consid
erable executive ability. In uno of

Of course there are l?.000 John

make more noise than the vast ma

Popular With Ever>oae.
Her popularity la attested by the
number of her friends, both among

the bureau. In a resolution adopt

services she had rendered different
classes In the past years was of
fered by Orlin M. Sanford. on be
half of the members of the school,
and unanimously adopted.
In a little farewell talk to the
members of the present training
class. Miss Marshall, by weaving In
a little story of her personal ex
periences connected with the early
days of the bureau, vividly por
trayed some of the difficulties
which the bureau had to overcome,

c reat risk of loss, that private
scribing how sh?- entered the bu
reau. Miss Marshall said:
"Before I start, bo we ? r. I want
to say a word about why th*" bu
reau was established. The first
war risk insurance act provided
merely for tin insurance of our i
vessels arid cargoes on the high ?
seas. The subject of insuring these
vessels in private companies was
I ..-.?rough.y di^usaea. but on ac- j
rovai of the submarine warfare
waffea bjr Gerwuj it was found
that the insurance for such risks
I companies could not undertake
?them. Then. too. the high premiums
, charged were such that our trade
with other countries was greatly
? handicapped.
Inaura nee ? om panie* Ki-lunH.
"When the I'nited .Stator entered tne j
? war officials of the government bc
! sail to consider how it could protect '
I those who were to be engaged in the I
; active military and naval service. The!
whole subject was talked over ini
j conferences with officiali of private,
insurance companies.
"The companies, in view of the great I
risks involved and the hazard of losses
through battle and disease, were either :
unwilling to undertake the work or,
: else declared thai they would be forced j
to charg?? prohibitive rate.??.
Pensions were also discussed, but !
the granting of pensions h?d proved j
vary unsatisfactory in the past. -So.
on October %, ?MT. the war risk insur
ance act was passed, authorizing the
est s but? h meut of a bureau of the
Treasury Department for the grant
ing of Insurance and other benefits to
soldiers, sailors and Marines. At this
time there were already In the navy
' and army I.MM-?t persons' eligible for
insurance by the government.
?My Third la llureaa.
I "At the 1-es.innini, there were just
three pasple in the bureau. The bti
i reau started out with three clerks.
! who were quartered in s little dark
, room in the basement of the Treas
ury Department. When the orders
! came for the removal of this force to
\ the old National Museum, as some of
'. you who have worked in the Treas
1 ury Building at the time may recall,
1 an auto was drawn up at the side door
1 and the entire office force got aboard
j "A few moments later three big
! auto trucks drew up which wer?
li?:?..ieri hi*?h with bags of letters fpom
.servicemen and others, asking how to
'apply for insurance. That Is the way
; it has been pretty much ever since
and at times the bureau ?was Abso
lutely swamped with correspondence.
"Just about this time 1 was living
out in a little town in Iowa. We
would go to the movie theater * at
night, and there would be flashed on
the screen the statement. 'The gov
ernment wants thousands of stenog
raphers to work in Washington.' Just
, then they were * asking for stenog

"About all we had to do In this re
