Asked to Exceed Quota in
i, Campaign for Soldiers'
Hv Comforts.
$800,000 GOAL SET HERE
With Its customary spirit of patriot
ism and enthusiasm Washington Is
making ready for the starting of the j
united war work campaign and to
furnish its share of the $170,504,600
to make the men in America's fight
ing forces happy and comfortable.
Plans already have been made for
a lively and spirited drive here. Many
prominent business and professional
men have been included In the per
sonnel of the various committees
which will manage the drive, and the
early indications are that the Na
tional Capital will maintain the glori
ous record it has established in past
liberty loan and war savings and
Bed Cross drives.
Solely for Belief.
This large sum is*solely for relief
work now being done by the seven i
recognized war relief agencies?the
T. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. A, National
Catholic War Council and Knights of
Columbus, War Camp Community
Service. Jewish Welfare Board. Sal
vation Army and American Libraries
The goal to be reached in Washing
ton has been set at >800,000, but the j
committee managing the local drive is
sanguine in its belief that when the ;
smoke of battle has cleared away aft
er the week's campaign It will be
found that this city has exceeded that
amount by more than 60 per cent.
Urged to Exceed Quotas.
An committee chairmen throughout
the country have been instructed by
John R- Mott, national director gener
eral of the united war work cam-1
paign, to make every endeavor to ex
ceed their respective quotas by at |
least .50 per cent. This oversubscrip- !
lion will be necessary, Mr. Mott stated ;
in a telegram received today at the j
local headquarters. He explained that
otherwise the seven organizations, in
cluding those with the largest dudg
ets. will run out of funds before
next Jdne and another campaign for
funds will be necessary. He explained
that'an oversubscription is being eag
erly sought rather than a specific in
crease in the amount set for the gen
em drive.
31 ass Meeting- at Liberty Hut.
The first gun of the campaign in
Washington will be fired, so to speak,
next Sunday afternoon, when a large
mass meeting will be held at Liberty
Hut, which will be presided over by
Bishop Shahan, rector of the Catholic
University of America.
A number of prominent men will
address the meeting, and each will
tell of the great need of the war fund
and about the work being done by the
seven organizations united in the
drive, both in this country and in and
behind the fighting lines in France
and Italy?in fact, wherever Ameri
can troops are now bearing arms.
Among the speakers on this occa
sion will be Capt. Julius L Peyser of
the Jewish Welfare Board; Dr. Frank
P. Hill, president of the American Li
brafy Association; Charles Whitehair
of the Y. M. C. A., who has been for
more tnari a year engaged in that or
ganization's work in Palestine and
oa the western front, and Bishop
Monster Parade Is Planned.
JL monster parade to be featured
with floats representing the various
organizations united In this drive is
being planned to be held two days be
fore the official opening of the cam
paign. Detailed plans for this event
are now being completed. It will be
held on Pennsylvania avenue and will
start at the Peace Monument and, ac
cording to the committee in charge, of
which Joseph Stoddard is chairman,
will be more than a mile in length.
Under the direction of Miss Su
sanna Cocroft of the housing and
health division of the War Depart
ment plans are being worked out for
an immense bonfire celebration with
fires represeiuing the various states
of the nion and the seven organiza
tions united, to be held on the ellipse
during the week of the drive.
Mrs. Robert Lansing, wife of the Sec
retary of State, who will captain a
team of workers in the coming drive,
will hold a reception for team cap
tains and directors this afternoon at
her home. 1523 ISth street northwest,
at 5 o'clock. Charles Whitehair. re
turned recently from the western
front, will be the speaker. In co-op
eration with Dr. Walter S. Harban of
the committee on clubs, officials of the
golf clubs of the District are planning
a concerted drive on the pocketbooks
of golfers and the sport program is
being worked out in a comprehensive
manner. Georgetown University's
foot ball team will probably meet the
team of the Maryland State College
on the gridiron for the benefit of the
fund during the week of the drive.
Council Is Seeking Women and
Hales Outside of Draft Age
[ for Highway Service.

outside the limits of the selective

about to enter the Motor Transport
Corps of the Army, is being planned,
according to an announcement of the
Council of National Defense.
Men are Bow being recruited for
the corps under the direction of the
highways transport committee of the
defense council. The campaign Is along
comprehensive lines, 2,000,000 men be
ing required. Motor transportation,
valued at $130,000,000, Is planned in
making greater the corps, and this
amount Is exclusive of such transport
sow In services

highways transport committee, com- 1
mittees organised on its behalf by the !
Council of National Defense and their
local committees, has been enlisted,
so that tho,campaign for recruits will
be carried oa with a rush throughout

wm HsiuBe Industrial Vehicles,
To obtain substitutes for those taken
away, women will be recruited and
placed in service, while the men in
the industiz are being withdrawn for
Army purposes. They will handle in
dustrial vehicles over the highways
wberever the type of motor truck and
environment allow.
The selection and training of men
?tiusi age makes them unavailable
