House Committee Plans to j Give Serious Consideration to Proposal. Retirement of superannuated civil serv ice employes on pensions is to be serious ly considered by the House committee on reform of the civil service immediately after the Christmas recess of Congress, according to Dr. Llewellyn Jordan, secre tary of the United States Civil Service Retirement Association. Dr. Jordan an nounced at a meeting of his organization at the Public Library last night that Rep resentative Godwin of North Carolina, chairman of the committee, had author ized him to make the statement. Addresses were made at the meeting by Senator Sterling of South Dakota, Rep resentative Austin of Tennessee. W. E. Andrews, auditor for the Treasury; Os car F. Nelson, state factory inspector of Illinois, and Dr. Jordan. The meeting'was the first of a series to be held during the coming winter under the auspices of the ?ame association to stir up interest in the movement. Sterling to Take Up Cause. Senator Sterling, who is a member of the Senate committee on civil service and retrenchment, promised that he will take* the initiative in attempting to get the committee to take up the question as soon as possible. He said that there are still opponents or" the civil service idea and that the system will have to be de fended from many assaults. The necessity of all civil service em ployes ? ombining on one plan of retire ment was urged by all the speakers, who said that the cause had been greatly weakened by friction among the clerks themselves. Senator Sterling said that there is less objection in Congress to the contributory plan of pensions than to the "straight"* plan, and that therefore it would be easier to get the former plan enacted into law. Clerks Must Wake Up. Representative Austin, who was for merly a I'ost Office Department employe, declared that the clerks themselves must "wake up," and that means must be taken to get the interest and support of the people out In the states. He said that. although salaries in the government, service have been increased but little In th< last half century, the cost of living has gone up rapidly. Mr. Andrews said that Congress should lirst grant an advance of salaries to government employes and should then give a pension plan. He declared that there ar- few superannuated employes in the government service, and that the pension budget therefore would not be large.

The need of a hospital for inebriates was strongly pointed out by Charles C. Lancaster, president of the Citizens' Northwest Suburban Association, at a meeting of that organization in the Ma sonic Hall of Tenleytown '.ast evening. Mr. Lancaster said he hoped the recom mendation made for such a hospital by tin* Commissioners would be adopted by Congress. '"Addiction to alcoholics is a disease, not. :t erime," declared Mr. Lancaster. "These nv>n have to be taken care of, however." It was pointed out that send ? ng jinebrfates to Occoquan for a month or two was not sufficient to euro them and'that within a short time after leav ing .they were as bad in this respect as ever. At the hospital, it was said, a man could be kept until he was entirely cured and had so strengthened himself as to be able to resist the temptations of drink. Mi. Lancaster named the various rec omniendatiohs made by the Commission ers which affected the suburbs in that part of the city. These recommenda tions, he said, showed the value of or ganization and co-operation among men. sueli as existed in the citizens' associa tion. Membership Campaign. It rtas decided to start a campaign for new members. To carry out this prop ositi >n it was decided to have men in various sections talk to their neighbors.

Gott. A. J. Yowell, J. J. Kramer and Edward P. Goebel. Several resolutions were adopted. One ; asked that a letter box be placed in As ! bury Park. It was stated that at present ; the residents have to walk half a mile to find a depository for mail. Another authorized the president to have a bill introduced in Congress asking for the ex tension of Albemarle road from Grant road to Wisconsin avenue. Rev. Charles T. Warner, Fred P. Robey and X. Edward Chappie were named as a committee to see what could be done to have a small building erected on a site which has been donated, the building ! to house a branch library. Improvements Desired. A resolution was also adopted favoring the passage by Congress of bills provid ing for the wider use of school houses, tlto creation of a board of recreation in the District, and for the establish ment of swimming pools in different sec tions of the city.

DREDGING OF CHANNEL SUSPENDED FOR WINTER Contractors Unwilling to Take Chance of Being Caught by a Freeze. Taking advantage of the provision in the contract for the deepening of George town channel that work may be discon timied during the winter months, the con tractors have withdrawn the dredge Dan iel f: om the banking operations in the vicinity of Alexander Island, in front of ! the Arlington estate. Since the dredge started work tiiere three weeks ago about half the entire length of the wall to be built at this point has been completed, and it will take but a short time in the ? spring to finish it, so that tho dredging of the channel, frotn the Highway bridge to Georgetown, may be started. While the weather has been open so far, the contractors, it is stated, were unwili ing to take any chances on a freeze com ing and catching the Daniel in the shoal water in which she was working. The dredge is to be sent to Newport News to work there during the winter, as iee sel dom interferes with work In that vicinity. When work on the Georgetown channel is resumed in the spring it will be pushed with big dredges to completion. As the estimates call for the removal of 450 000 cubic yards of material, and more may have to be dug. dredging operations in the channel will extend over several months. HOME FOR CLERGYMAN.
