Permission for all federal employes to

Bight, voted to ask that Congress legis

TODAY LAST DAY
. OF MELTING POT
Fund for Free Wool for Sol
j Today is the last day of the melting pot
i at the residence of Mrs. Edson Bradley,
1328 Connecticut avenue, which has
throughout the week served as the recep
tacle for a variety of contributions ^f
old gold and silver given to establish a
fund for free wool for soldiers' woolen
i The receipts have gratified the women
i in charge, members of a general supply
i committee which has established the fund
j and which includes a number of the wives
i of Army officers of high rank. They
I announce that more than $700 has been
j added to the fund through checks and
j cash contributions, and estimate that the
j intrinsic or artistic value of the things
I brought in will amount to several hun
| dred dollars more.
Purpose of Movement.
| The committee was formed and the fund
undertaken because it has been this fall
| so often brought to the attention of
j members, through their Army connections,
I that many troops, including regular sol-j
[ diers, are as yet inadequately provided j
with comforts, particularly sleeveless j
sweaters. To furnish with materials those
able to knit, but lacking the funds to
spend for wool, now several dollars a
pound, has been the idea.
Already the committee has received
through Miss Alma Kuggles, assistant
chairman, an organization offer to as
sist in making up the materials which
the fund will provide. It-comes from a
group composed of the young daugh
ters of Army officers here ranging from
12 to 16 years of age, which has been
devoting itself for some time to the
manufacture of comforts, such as
sweaters and mufllers. Their labors
have been brought to a standstill be
cause of the high price of wool, and
they are anxiously waiting the chance
for full speed ahead again. ;
Keen Interest Shown.
Keen interest in the movement was
displayed by a Washington woman who
called at the office of The Star a day or I
two ago. She had heard erroneously j
that the wool was ready for distribu- j
tion and called to obtain further details.
*1 am a first-class knitter, if I say it j
mj-self. having been trained to it in
my early years, when it was considered
a necessary accomplishment of every
young woman and even little girl." she
remarked. "Since the beginning of the
war I have made and given away ex
actly fifteen sweaters for soldiers. I
could make as many more with ease if
I could get hold of the wool but 1
have spent on materials all that I feel
I can afford."
Elderly Sisters Interested.
HWe are elderly, but would like to do
what we can." write two dear old la
dies, both over seventy, from Brook
lyn, sisters, who have learned of the
movement. '?We have already turned
out a number of complete comforts
sets, but have reached the point where
we do not feel that we ca devote aay
more of our finances to this work."
They will not have to: their long
practiced skill with the needles will be
all that they need feel they must con

TO DECIDE IF SOLDIER
j SHALL SUFFER DEATH
Case of Man Convicted of Desertion
Placed Before Secretary
Secretary Baker has been called on to
pass judgment in a case involving: the
life or death of an enlisted man of the
Army who was convicted by a court
martial of the charge of desertion in
I time of war for the purpose of joining
| or otherwise aiding the enemy and
[sentenced to be executed in the manner
prescribed by law. Pending action by!
the Secretary, none of ihe officials at!
the War Department will disclose the j
name of the soldier or any of the cir- j
cumstances connected with the eas?* I
even to the extent of saying whethO'
the offense was committed in this coun
try or abroad.
Penalty of Desertion.
In time of war desertion is punish
able by death or long imprisonment at '
the discretion of the military authori
ties in the field, but the death penalty
is not inflicted usually without the ap
proval of the President or his civil
representative, the Secretary of War.
The supreme power of the military
commander in the field in capital cases
was demonstrated recently in the case:
of a soldier in France convicted of the j
crimes of rape and murder. He wa
shot hy a firing squad without submis- ;
sion of the case to the War Depart- ,
fn the present case it is expected !
that Secretary Baker will consult the i
President before taking final action. 1
