The youngsters streamed in tljere all
day long, asking a thousand and one
questions, getting costumes, flags, caps,
bows, ribbons and other decorations, and
singing snatches of patriotic airs as they
danced about the big headquarters room.
Mrs. Tinnin, Miss Smith and the other
young women at headquarters had their
hands full taking care of their young
assistants. The latter seem thoroughly
aroused to the spirit of the occasion, and
are joining in the preparations for the pa

Owing to the fact that a number of the
Boy Scouts of Washington have gone to
the Gettysburg encampment, the women
in charge of the pageant have not yet
obtained the services of as many Boy
Scouts as they would like to have to
assist in marshaling the procession to'be
held July 4. While a number of scouts
are going to headquarters daily and of
fering their services, the committee
would be glad if still more would vol
unteer, as their assistance is deemed in
valuable. . _ ,
Fred 1* Harries of the 'lakoma Park
group of Boy Scouts has volunteered the
services of from twelve to sixteen scouts.
His offer was eagerly accepted. Scout
Commissioner Harry M Rudd of Lroop

the services of 1UU scouts from Alex
andria, but he has not yet reported that
he will be able to bring his organization
to Washington tor the day, tnough the
committee hopes that he will he aide
to arrange it.

this afternoon with a copy of the map
showing the location oi the various
events that are to take place in the
Monument, Agricultural and Mall
grounds, with tne necessary data as to
how the procession will move. Capt.
Hollinberger told those in charge at
headquarters that the police will do
everything in their power to assist in
the celebration.
Another visitor to headquarters was
little Miss Kent, daughter of Repiesent
ative Kent of California, who, with a
triend, desired to volunteer as one or
the ? flower gil ls" In the procession. Her !
offer was accepted, and she and her j
friend will be given a place in the \
Still an ither visitor to headquarters to
day was C. Edward Llufrio, head of the
Italian Boys' Club of the Christ Child So

the fifty boys In the Italian Boys" Club,
telling those at ? headquarters that these

Children to Interpret Dances.
One of the most beautiful e-ents of the
celebration is expected to be "the dance
of the Wood Sprites." A beautiful spot
in the grounds where the celebration Is to
take place will be roped off, and there,
under the trees, forty or fifty children of
the public schools are to r-ve a series of
interpretative dances.
These children are pupils of Miss Alys

be directed by Miss Ruth M. Doing, a
