Chamber of Commerce Spe
cial Committee Urges Sup
port of Business Men.
RESOLUTION IS FRAMED.
BUT WILL BE CHANGED
Also Recommends That Federal and
District Governments Urge Em
ployes to Join Guard.
A resolution strongly favoring ,-loser
in-operation between the busings men
<>f the District and the National Guard
ot the District of Columbia was sub
mitted to the board of directors of the
Chamber of Commerce at its meeting
last evening by a special committee
consisting of James F. Oyster. John F.
Sla\en and A. Leftwieh Sinclair. This
special committee was appointed to
draft the measure. following the
speech of Representative Julius Kahn
of California before the executive com
mittee at its meeting last week, in
whic h he strongly urged facilitation of
national guard men's duties by the
employers of Washington. The reso
lution was not acted upon at last
nights meeting, owing to disapproval
of certain of its clauses, but was re
ferred back to the special committee
for some modifications. It will be
brought before the regular meeting of
the Chamber of Commerce next Tues
day night, and it is hoped that it will
then be adopted.
Proposed Declaration.
The document is along the lines of the
resolution recently adopted by the Cham
ber of Commerce of New York, and
recommends that the various corpor
ations, partnerships and firms of the Dis
trict adopt substantially the following
declaration:
"Every employe who now is. or will
become, a member of the National Guard
of the District of Columbia, will be al
lowed during the term of his enlist
ment. but not to exceed five years, four
teen days in each year for the perform
ance of military duty, without deduction
from his pay. and this time will not be
charged against his vacation. It is our
Intention to favor the promotion of men
who have secured full and honorable
discharges from the National Guard, or
who are in course of earning them by
military service. All heads of depart
ments, superintendents and foremen will
see to it that the spirit of this declara
tion is carried out and will encourage
the men under them to join the National
Guard to the extent of per cent of the
working force of any department, shop
or unit of organization, as the case
may be."
Further Recommendations.
The resolution further recommends that
the federal and District governments urge
employes to join the guard, with no ad
verse rating of standing and pay, and
that by appropriate legislation applicants
who are or have been guard members
shall be given preference in the civil serv
ice. The Secretary of War is requested
to see to it that the District guard be not
all called out -at one time, so that no
employer may thereby lose the services
of all of his guardsmen employes.
President Gude told of a conference
with Mrs. Henry Dimock regarding the
building of the George Washington me
morial and announced many large sub
scriptions to the fund.
The directors perfected the organiza
tion of the various committees to accom
plish the work of broadening the manu
facturing and commercial activities of
Washington during 1014. The personnel of

"ELIJAH" IS PRESENTED
BY ORATORIO SOCIETY
Solo Parts Prove Particularly Pleas
ing at Season's First Appear
ance of Organization.
j The Washington Oratorio Society, Syd
nev Lloyd Wrightson conducting, made
its first appearance this season last even- ;
ing. presenting Mendelssohn's monu
mental work. "Elijah." at the Church of
the Covenant before an audience that
taxed the capacity of the edifice, many
standing throughout the performance. A
short address was made by Rev. r>r.
Charles Wood as to the spiritual mean
ing of the oratorio.
The solo parts were sustained by Mrs.
Ethel Holtzclaw Gawier, soprano; Miss
Beulflh L. Harper, contralto; Richard P. I
Backing, tenor, and < "harles Trowbridge I
Tittmann. bass, and in the small ensem- !
ble numbers this group of singers were
supplemented by < nristine Church, so
prano; Zell Weaver Javne. contralto;
John G. Klein, tenor, and Caspar G.
Dickson, bass.
Mr. Tittmann. in the part of "Elijah,"
was given warmest, commendation. He
is considered essentially an oratorio
singer, his voice rich and resonant and
his delivery of the recitations and arias
dignified, authoritative or pathetic as the
text required. The devotional spirit of
the aria, "Lord, God of Abraham," and
the pathos and finality of his interpreta
tion of "It Is Enough." were pronounced
Inspiring.
Solo by Mrs. Gawier.
Mrs. Gawier was particularly acceptable
in her solo, "Hear Ye. Israel," her voice
ringing clear and true throughout, and
expressing abundantly the. joyousness of
the allegro movement of the aria, "I Am
He That Comforteth, Be Not Afraid." In
the duet with Mr. Tittmann, "What Have
I To Do With Thee. <J Man of God?" she
seemed to enter intimately into the spirit
of the music. Mr. Backing was equally
satisfying in his several solos. Ilis in
terpretation of "If With All Your Hearts"
was marked by deep fervor and tender
ness, and was one of the gems of the
evening.
The chorus work was pronounced in the
main really tine. the parts being well bal
anced, and the quality of tone on the
soprano side notably better than last sea
son. Especially in the numbers- "Baal.
We Cry To Thee," "Thanks Be To God"
and "Be Xot Afraid" were the climaxes
well developed. Harvey Murray furnish
ed excellent support at the organ, beside
playing the prelude, "Andante," from
"Quartet": "The March of the Priests,"
from "Athalia." and the postlude, choral
from "St. Paul." all by Mendelssohfl. The
oratorio will be repeated next Wednesday
at the same time and place.

HARD PRESSED FOX TRIES
LEAP THROUGH WINDOW
Riding- and Hunt Club Has Exciting
Chase?Miss Greble Takes
Tumble.
The. Riding and Hunt Club held a fox
hunt in Montgomery county, Md., yes
terday, the "kill" taking place about a
half mile beyond the Somerset railroad
station. The fox was so hard pressed
toward the finish of the hunt that he tried
to jump through a farmhouse window.
The hunt, which covered nearly thirty
miles, began at S? o'clock at the Chevy
Chase Club, and the fox was found near
Bradley Hills, in the vicinity of the
Montgomery Country Club. He was
chased nearly to Cabin John bridge, back
