TWO BANK MEN KILLED;
US TOM
Bold Highwaymen in Brooklyn
Wound Detective and Escape
in Taxicab.
NEW YORK, December 14.?Two officers
of the East Brooklyn Savings
Bank were killed late yesterday by
two daring highwaymen, who escaped
in a taxicab with $13,000 after shooting
a detective who tried to stop them
and holding a crowd at bay with their
revolvers.
The robbers chose the busiest time
of the day for their purpose. Entering
as if to make a deposit, one advanced
to the paying teller's window
and thrust a revolver through the
bars, while his companion covered
other persons In the bank.
When- Daniel C. Peal, the teller,
failed to "come across" as ordered, he
was shot through the heart. His
slayer then took his turn at "covering"
the crowd while his companion
ran to another window, forced a clerk
to retreat to the rear of his cage and
then crawled through the small opening.
From that cage he hastened to the
one where the murdered teller lay.
He thrust rolls of bills into a bag,
and when Henry W. Coons, assistant
treasurer of the bank, ran forward
| he, too, was shot. He died later at . a
i hnanitfll
Then both robbers made a dash for
the street, and when Detective Albert
Doody tried to block their path he received
a wound in the left arm. Outside
the pair waved the crowd back
with their revolvers and entered a
taxicab. Later the chauffeur, who
said his name was George W. McCullough,
gave himself up to the police.
He claimed that he was not implicated
in the robbery, but that he had had
a pistol pressed to his head and had
been threatened with death If he did
not obey orders.
MEDAL TO GEN. MARCH
Secretary Baker Presents Service
Honor Awarded on Gen. Pershing's
Recommendation.
- Gen. P. C. March, chief of staff of
I the Army, yesterday afternoon was
I presented by Secretary Baker with a
distinguished service medal. The
award was made on the recommendation
of Gen. Pershing, commanding
the expeditionary forces, with the approval
of the President.
"As commanding general of the
Army artillery of the let Army," said
Gen. Pershing, "he initiated and prepared
the plans for the organization
of the artillery of the Amerioan Army
in France. As chief of staff of the
United States Army he has rendered
services of inestimable value to his
country."
Secretary Baker's Remarks.
In presenting the medal Secretary
Baker said it was to him a peculiarly
happy circumstance that the recommendation
that Gen. March be decorated
had come from the commander
of the American expeditionary forces.
While the whole nation Joined, Mr.
Baker said, in acknowledgment of the
heroism of the expeditionary forces, it
was a striking indication of the unity
of purpose that the soldiers overseas
appreciated the work erf those officers
and men whose duties had held them
at home.
Gen. March expressed his appreciation
of the honor done him and said
that he would recommend that similar
decorations be awarded other officers
who had contributed to the suo
cess or tne American military program,
although they had been forced
to remain in the United States.

Attorney General Orders Restoration
of Seized Property.

Germany for many years prior to the
outbreak of the war, Mrs. Lilly Busch,

ASK FOR RETENTION!
OFO.C. FISCAL PLAN
Brightwood Citizens Urge
Senate to Continue Halfand-Half
Appropriations.
Abolition of the half-and-half plan
for the Dfttrict of Columbia was
strongrly opposed at a meeting of the
Brightwood Citizens' Association and
resolutions were adopted appealing to
the Senate to retain the former j>lan
of appropriations. Copies of the resolution
will be sent to the Senate District
committee as provided "by George
Francis Williams, who introduced the
resolutions.
Opposition also was expressed to an
increase in the present gas rate from
90 cents to $1, application for which
has been made by the Washington
and Georgetown Gas Light companies
to the District Public Utilities Commission.
On motion of John C. Proctor,
the utility committee of the association,
composed of William H.
Cleary, George Francis Williams and
John A. Saul, was instructed to attend
the public hearing to be granted
by the commission at an early date
and file the protest.
Beport on Cost of Paving.
The association was informed by C.
B. Hunt, engineer of highways for the
District, that the paving of Georgia
avenue from Rock Creek Church road
to Butternut street, in front of Walter
Reed Hospital, exclusive of the
cost of paving the area between the
tracks, at present prices would cost
approximately 9272,000, of which
amount one-half, or 2136,000, would
be assessed against abutting property.
The assessment per linear foot
would be about 35 for the pavement
and 91 if a curb is constructed, making
a total of 36 per foot. The avenue
is 60 feet wide, with a 20-foot
space between the tracks. He does
not consider, under present conditions,
that such an expenditure would
be justified at this time.
George W. Osborne, Charles G. Myer
and Dr. C. A. Baker were elected to
membership in the association. Edward
M. Cleary and Jesse L. Ergood
were named as members of the joint
committee on railways to confer with
the suburban citizens' association
north of Park road to discusa needed
Improvements .in the service on the
Brtghtwood line. The question of an
additional car stop at Georgia avenue
and Rlttenhouse street, owing to
this rapidly built-up section, will be
requested of the authorities.
For Separate Control of Schools.
On motion of Jesse L, Ergood, chairman
of the school committee, the association
voted to oppose the recommendation
?of the District Commissioners
that the appointing power of
members of the board of education be
transferred from the Supreme Court
of the District to the Commissioners.
The resolution adopted stated that the
association was satisfied that the interests
of the schools could be best
served unSer separate control, as is
now administered, and that if any
change is found necessary for the harmonious
conduct of the school system
in the District it was in favor of
more, rather than less, power being
invested in the board of education,
rather than in the hands of the District
Commissioners.
Mr. Ergood also introduced a resolution,
which was adopted, urging
that Congress enact a law fixing adequate
salaries for the teachers of the
Distriot schools, with $1,200 as a minimum
salary. The meeting concluded
with the recitation of a poem "The
War Up to Date," by John C. Proctor.
WAR STAMP CALL ISSUED.
Federation Head Appeals to Citizen
Associations.
The Federation of Citizen* Association;!,
In a communication sent by
its president, W. B. Westlake, to each
citizens' association today, urges that
these bodies give their best efforts
during the remainder of the year to
insuring the District's purchase of Its
quota of war savings stamps
After suggesting that the war
stamp sale be featured et the n.rt
meeting's of th'e associations, Mr.
Westlake states: "I hope to hear that
your association has contributed to
the general success which Is bound
to come, for the District of Columbia
never falls down on this kind of an
undertaking."
Twenty Years for Killing.
The minimum eentenoe of twenty
years in the penitentiary has been
Imposed by Chief Justice McCoy on
James Matthews^ colored, who pleaded

side Government.
War workers being dismissed from ?
the government In Washington will s
be given every assistance possible by t
the Civil Service Commission in se- T
c
curing other employment, the com- t
mission announced today. t
The commission will keep registers '
of the women who responded to the t
government's call for clerks during \
the emergency and they will be -given
preference in new appointments under
the civil service.
Realizing, however, that new appointments
will come slowly, the commission
is arranging with the Department
of Labor to help departing
war workers to get jobs outside the
government service. The commission
is making this effort, an official said,
because it feels that many women
came to Washington at a personal sacrifice
to work for Uncle Sam during
the war.
Senate Favors Payment of Fares.
The House bill providing for the
payment by the government of the
railroad fares of war workers returning
to their homes was passed by the
Senate late yesterday, and now goes
to conference.
The measure applies only to war
workers receiving not more than
$1,400 annually, and to encourage reduction
in the number of government
employes as quickly as possible the
Senate amended the bill so that it
will apply to workers whose services
will have been terminated by next
January 15 instead of March 31, as
provided in the House draft.

Mr. Burleson Names Official ?oar^

Announcement has been made by

appointment of the board to operate
the telegraph and telephony services

?iu Suzanne SflTercruyt Speaks at
Meeting of Mational Qeogranhio

Her dark eyes reflecting1 the tragedy
f a nation almost destroyed by a
uthless enemy. Miss Suzanne Sllverruys
held the rapt attention of the
lembers of the National Geographio
oclety yesterday afternoon and evenng
as she recited the story of "Belium's
Cross." It was a story of Gerlan
outrage and of Belgian heroism
rhlch brought tears to the eyes of
er auditors as have few other aoounts
of the war In Europe.
Brother Called to Colors.
Only fifteen years of age when the
luns first debouched upon Belgium,
liss' Sllvercruys told of the scenes
ear her home as the Belgian boys,
mong whom was her brother, were
ailed to the colors; she told of the
Irst sleepless nights of the women as
hey heard the booming of guns,
rhich meant the slaughter of their
oved ones, and of the red glare in
he skies, which signalized the detraction
of Belgian * cities and the
nurder of the nation's civilian popuation.
Then chme the account of the
cenes in the hospitals, where this
oung girl nursed her own wounded
,nd later was forced into service by
he Germans to care for their" disbled.
She also described the scenes at
.ouvain, at Dinant and at Namur
rhen she made a tour of inspection
rith her father, one of the justices of
he supreme court of Belgium, and of
he manner in which she finally seured
a passport to go to Holland and
hence to America in order that she
night tell to the people of this counry
what Belgium has endured and
yhat noble work the commission for
lelgian relief, headed by Herbert
loover, is accomplishing.
