Washington Among First Cit
ies in United States to In
OUTLINE OF THE PROGRAM
Washington will be among the first
^cities of the land to begin a campaign
In the schools for the sale of thrift
stamps and war savings certificates
when it inaugurates the movement in
grade and high schools tomorrow.
The plan to be followed here will be
substantially in line with the plan
outlined by Frank A. Vanderlip. chair
man of the national war savings com
mittee. Supt. Thurston of the public
schools is in charge of the work in the
schools of the city.
Mr. Vanderlip's Suggestion.
The plans of Mr. Vanderlip for start
ing 5.000.000 school children saving
through purchase of war stamps em
body a program to be conducted within
the schools in connection with the reg
ular instructional routine and provide
for the systematic maintenance of the
Interest of children in saving.
"The school teacher is the pioneer
outpost of the government, standing at
the threshold of the nation's homes."
says Mr. Vanderlip. "The schools of
America are th% single units where a
national resolution can form and
spread overnight into every household.
The school teachers are the rallying
ground for the best beloved possession
of a country?its children. To the
teachers belong the splendid privilege,
the solemn duty, of rallying them
around the flag and then implanting in
their hearts and sending into the homes
of America the message which will
keep that flag flying high."
Plan of Action Outlined.
The suggestions contain a detailed
schedule for a plan of action b>~ school
days. suggesting that on the Monday
of the opening of a campaign war
savings posters, showing the quota by
the school and its various classrooms,
be put up. The quota can be obtained
through school superintendents. It
also is suggested that on the first day
of a campaign appropriate exercises
be held, including the reading of a
message from Secretary McAdoo to
school children, which has been pre
pared in printed form and sent out
by the national committee, and talks
by teachers on "How the Children Can
Help America Win the War." with fur
ther explanatory talks on the War
Other steps suggested in the develop
ment of the campaign are the setting
aside of days for compositions on war !
savings and the systematic co-opera
tion on the part of teachers with their
pupils in starting and maintaining war

DETAILS OF MORSE PARDON
FIGURE IN CONTRACT SUIT
Bill of Particulars In Action Against Erst
while Banker May Reveal How
Freedom Was Obtained.
By the Associated Pr<>s*.
NEW YORK, December 8.?The na
ture" and importance of a suit begun
last May against Charles W. Morse,
former banker and steamship man, who
was pardoned by President Taft while
serving a sentence in the federal prison
at Atlanta, was revealed today when a
bill of particulars was filed in the fed
eral district court here.
Morse is now head of the United
States Steamship Company, which re
cently was awarded a contract by th?
United States government for the
building: of thirty steamships.
Until the presentation of the particu
lars asked for by Morse's attorneys, all
that was known concerning the suit
was that it had been brought by Walter
K. Reid. a steamship man of Waterville.
Me., to enforce payment for services
rendered. Morse, in his answer, de
nied having made an oral contract with
Reid, as had been claimed by the lat
Claims Oral Contract.
The bill of particulars alleges that an
oral contract was entered into between
Morse and Reid while they were trav
eling on a train in Maine on August
10. 1909, whereby Reid was made
Morse's agent and representative in
his financial affairs and in the case of
the United States against Morse grow
ing out of the Bank of North America
frauds. It is also stated that in com
pliance with the alleged contract, Reid
continued to act as Morse's agent and
representative during the two years
the banker was in prison.
A reference in the bill of particu
lars to Reid's execution of "directions
concerning steps designed to procure
a pardon or commutation of sentence
of defendant" indicates the possibility
of the details being revealed of how
Morse obtained the presidential par
"Details by Reference."
"Many of the details of these mat- j
ters," it is stated, "were the subject!
of correspondence which the plaintiff
left in defendant's possession, and, ac
cordingly, plaintiff can furnish said de
tails only by reference thereto."
The particulars not being regarded as
full enough by Morse's counsel. Judge
Martin T. Manton directed Reid's at-i

from engaging: in.
Morse, on beintr convicted of violating
the national banking laws, entered the
Atlanta penitentiary on January 3, 1910,!
to serve a sentence of fifteen years.
When' he was believed to be dying,;
President Taft pardoned him on Feb
ruary 1, 1912.
Another suit against Morse for com-;
Densation for alleged services was
brought in the supreme court in luii
by Max C. Baum, a real estate dealer!
of this city. He asked for $100,000, and
claimed that it was largely through
his efforts that President Taft was in
duced to pardon Morse. Baum declared
that he was retained by Morse both at
conferences and by letter, and ? was
promised he would be made wealthy
"beyond his wildest dreams" if he suc
ceeded in bringing about the flnancer'a
release from the penitentiary.

Hearings on legislation urged by busi

sections dealing with the excess war
