others of her sex who must stay at home.
She is looking for city boys only, and
she is in Washington for a brief stay.
She Is going to give some talks and show
some special moving pictures at the

the farms who have the military service
in their minds, and tells them to stay at
home and raise food for the army and
the navy and the people at home. She
says they can do more good there than
aboard ship or in the training camp.
"There are too many boys in the
cities who should go before the country
boys are called." said the pretty little
miss "You see them in every city,
standing in grdups on street corners
with nothing to do but make remarks
about some pretty girl as she passes.
Those are the boys I am after, and I

Spring
* 4.
The birds are singing in the
trees, as you're no doubt aware;
on honey bent the busy bees are
droning through the air. The
clucking hen, beneath her wing,
has chickens half a score; there's
nothing I can say of spring you
haven't heard before. A million
bard< have chanted rhyme about
the bees and trees, about this
gracious vernal time, of flower-be
spangled leas. And evermore, till
time expires and earth's a bygone
thing, the gladsome bards will
smite their lyres and celebrate the
spring. And ever, in impassioned
words, they'll sing such things as
these: The brooks, the groves,
the singing birds, the bees and
lleas and trees. Describing buds
and leaves and grass, their tune
ful harps they strike, but I would
sing of garden sass?young
onions and the like. When one
has eaten, week on week, evap
orated fruit, how luscious seem
the tender leek, the spicy radish
root! And so I sing of home
grown beans, of early egg plant
fried, of spinach and of mustard
greens?and let the robins slide.

TAKE STEPS TO ABOLISH
DANGEROUS R. R. CROSSING
HYATTSVILLE. Md.. May 2.?At a
meeting of citizens in Masonic Hall
last night Mayor John G. Holden was
empowered to appoint a committee of
seven to confer with officials of the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad and the
public service commission to see if the
dangerous grade crossing at this place
could be eliminated. The grade cross
ing has been the cause for complaint
for some time, and the feeling in the
community has been intensified since
Miss Anne B. Handy and William A.
Morton, jr., were killed while crossing
in an automobile the night of April 21.
The meeting last night was under the
auspices of the mayor and common
council, and was attended by citizens
from the various upper sections of the
county who have occasion to cross the
tracks at Maryland avenue. Oliver S.
Metzerott, a member of the house of
delegates from Prince Georges county,
leader of the republican forces in the
last legislature; R. Lee Van Horn and
Joseph H. Blaiulford, jr.. also members
ofthe house of delegates from Prince
Georges: C. B. Gorsuch, superintendent,
and II. R. Talcott, engineer of surveys
from the chief engineer's office of the
railroad company, were present.
WOULD CORRECT DEFECTS.
Dr. Willard Urges Use of Osteopathy
to Prepare Men for Army.
Correction %of spinal defects by the
use of osteopathy. Dr. Earle S. Willard
of this city has told the War Depart
ment, would result in the acceptance
for military or naval service of hun
dreds of men now rejected by exam
iners as physically deficient. That such
corrective treatment would do away
not only with curvatures, faulty align
ment and other manifest defects of the
spinal column itself, but with other
physical weaknesses due to the spinal
derangements. Dr. Willard also be
lieves.
He has suggested to the department
that several hundred qualified osteo
paths be enrolled for the specific pur
pose of handling this kind of work in
preparing for the enlistment of the
proposed big new armies.
Detailed to Fort Myer Camp.
Additional regular army officers de
tailed to duty at the training camp for

OPPOSES LONGER HOURS
FOR GOVERNMENT CLERKS
Bear Admiral Stockton, Betired,
Thinks an Additional Force
Should Be Employed.
Longer hours for government clerks
during the period of the war are vig
orously opposed by Rear Admiral
Charles Herbert Stockton, U. S. N., re
tired, president of George Washington
University.
"I realize that the work of the vari
ous government departments has been
increased greatly by the war," said
Admiral Stockton today, "but I feel
that the government would obtain
greater efficiency by employing addi
tional clerks and working them eight
hours a day than by working its pres
ent force as long as ten and even
twelve hours a day.
"It has been proved very conclusively
that after eight hours of work an em
ploye's efficiency begins to decline.
Consequently it is a matter of dollars
and cents to the government to main
tain its eight-hour scale and keep the
standard of work up to its accustomed
level.
"Incidentally, the long hours seriously
affect the work of scores of govern
ment employes who attend George
Washington University. Nearly half
of the 2,100 students enrolled at the
university are employed by the govern
ment, and most of them attend the late
afternoon classes?from 5 to 6:40
o'clock. Long hours of work interfere
with attendance at these classes, and
if the hours of employes are lengthened
generally in all departments it may
become necessary for the university to
shift its afternoon classes to night
classes."
Cartage Costs to Be Discussed.
Cartage costs in Washington are to
be discussed by Eugene F. Hartley,
chief of division, bureau of the census
of the Department of Commerce, in an
address before the Retail Merchants'
Association tomorrow evening in the
Raleigh Hotel. Mr. Hartley is to speak
of the problem of hauling as it affects
Washington, and is to answer such ques
tions regarding transportation problems
as may be asked of him. Tomorrow's
meeting is a special one, having been
called to consider current business con
ditions.

PLANNING TO PROMOTE
CONSERVATION OF LABOR
Pennsylvania Railway Company De
cides, Wherever Possible, to Offer
Employment to Girls and Women.
With a view to aiding the conser
vation of labor, and in conformity with
the necessities created by the present
crisis, the management of the Pennsyl
vania railroad has decided, where
ever possible, to offer opportunities of
employment to girls and women. Steps
will be taken to engage and train a
reserve force of woman employes who
will be available should any crucial
situation develop in the affairs of the
country.
Every general superintendent on the j
lines east of Pittsburgh has been di
rected to investigate and report in
what capacities girls or women can
be efficiently employed on all parts of j
the. railroad; what numbers can be so I
utilized, and to what extent they can j
perform the work now being done by
men.
The purposes of this action by the
railroad company is to release men
from work that can as well be. per
formed* by women and thus increase
the number of male employes available
for those forms of railroad service for ;
which women are not so well adapted ;
and to prepare for the probability that J
selective, conscription will ultimately
result in a considerable depletion of
the forces of male employes not ac
tually engaged in the. physical opera
tion of the railroad.
