On two occasions the past week the
personnel of Walter Reed Army Gen
eral Hospital has been In the social
spotlight, on both occasions having
been the quests of President and Mrs.
Wilson at the White House. The
cordial, hospitable reception accorded
delighted all who were fortunate to
have been among the guest lists.
Naturally every member of the big

the honors shown them.
Wednesday last the reconstruction
aids were guests of the President and
Mrs. Wilson at a reception held in the
historlo east room of the White
House. The guests numbered 115 aids

Made Effective Tableau.
The young woman guests, in their
pale blue uniforms, with white caps,
aprons, cults and collars, grouped in
the east room, made an effective tab
leau picture. When President Wil
son and Mrs. Wilson entered the big
room from their private quarters to
greet their guesta their faces lighted
with smiles to greet the young war
workers from the Army hospital.
The distinguished hosts, after greet
ing Maj. Monahan and Capt. McFee
and Miss Taft, supervisor of the aids.
President Wilson, addressing his
"I want to say a few words to you.
May I tell you how I appreciate the
work you are doing at Walter Reed
Hospital. I, as the head of the gen
eral government, am, in a way, your
chief, and I am honored and proud
to be so. In the future you will be
proud and glad that you could give
such service to the men, who I know
appreciate the work you are doing."
Then Mr. and Mrs Wilson person
ally were introduced to each of the
guests, shaking hands with them and
having something cordial to say to
each individual. After a brief social
interchange of compliments the de
ligrhted company of young women
left, returning to their duties at the
hospital, the reception recorded in
their minds as a red letter day in
their lives. Those in the party were:

Again on Friday President and Mrs.
Wilson honored Walter Reed by en
tertaining more than 800 of the

overseas war began. There were also
present on that occasion a number of
the boys from the United States Naval

The gathering was informal and
unique on the lawn south of the
building. The Motor Transport Corps
and the Red Cross motors transported
the boys to and from the White
House. Among the motor cars were"
a number of ambulances that took
care of the convalescents, a number
of whom had for the first time left
their wards In ten or more months.
The wheelchair boys, men without
legs or otherwise disabled, and who
could not walk, were there In force,
and they received especial attention
from both the President and Mrs". Wil
son and her distinguished aids. The
United States Marine Band was there,
and when that big organization
struck up "America," announcing the
approach of President and Mrs. Wil
son, the soldier boys cheered enthusi
astically. The boys were received,
shaking hands with President and
Mrs. Wilson and the ladies of the re
Bed Cross Nurses in Charge.
The "wheelchair" men Were In
charge of Red Cross nurses In their
picturesque uniforms. After the re
ception, Mrs. Wilson and the Presi
dent mingled here and there over the
grounds with the boys, paying spe
cial attention to the disabled young
heroes. Refreshments were served,
President and Mrs. Wilson personally
looking after serving the boys In the
wheelchairs. The party broke up
after 7 o'clock, all voting it an occa
sion they would never forget.
The ladles of the motor corps han
dling automobiles transporting the
party were: Mrs. C. D. Carter, com
manding; Mrs. L. S. Wolfe, Mrs. Frank
Connelly, Mrs. J. P. Haynes, Miss Nina
Gore, daughter of the senator from
Oklahoma; Miss Jean Robertson, Miss
Hilda Janson, Miss Elizabeth King,
Miss Betty Matteson, Miss Marguerite
Zappone, Mr. Horace Hunt and Mr.
Coleman Jones. Among the Red Cross
nurses and aids from Walter Reed

Woodrow, Mrs. Charles Warren, Mrs.
Sarah Jones, Miss Marjorie Lower.
Miss Dorothy B. Brown, Miss Jean
Cobb, Miss Edith Chapman, Miss
Helen Netherwood. Mr. W. H. Bundy
and Mr. F. T. Booher.
At the Red Cross house, the "T,"
Knights of Columbus and Jewish Wel
fare Board house the regular pro
grams provided for on the weekly
bulletin were carried out. The em
ployes of the Palais Royal were the
entertainers Monday night, and it was
"some night," as the boys expressed
It. Refreshments were served. At
the weekly forum Dr. S. R. Simon of
the "Y" lectured on "Land Proposi
tion." Friday night Saks & Co. en

POSTAL EMPLOYES j
Higher Pay Also Item for
Consideration at Federa
tion Session Here.
WILL MEET LABOR DAY
The eleventh biennial session of the
National Federation of Postal Employes,
with representatives from all over the
country, is scheduled to meet in this
city, opening on Labor day, September
Local representatives of the organiza
tion say that among the more, inportant
matters that will come up for considera
tion will be a demand for a higher wage
scale, reduction of night work, pay for
all overtime and a closer regard for the
eight-hour law. The convention will
outline a program of sweeping reforms
in the postal service, tt is announced,
which will be presented to the congres
sional salary commission that has been
authorized to investigate postal wage
Statement by Secretary Flaherty.
"Primarily we want recognition of
the human element tn the postal mit
ice," aald Thomas F. Flaherty, sec
retary-treasurer of the federation.
"The public has the vague idea that the
postal service la a mechanical contriv
ance that functions without the need of
human labor. This is a popular fallacy
that must be dispelled. There is a very
acute postal labor situation at the pres
ent time. Because of unattractive wage
and working standards the service can
not secure the necessary man power
to enable it to be efficiently operated.
The postal labor turnover Is large and
expensive. Older emp'oyes are resign
ing by the scores and their places can
not be filled. The public suffers by the
consequent slowing up and impairment
of the service.
"We propose to outline a construc
tive legislative program to the Con
gress. which will point the way
toward the industrial rehabilitation of
our service. Our postal establish
ment has been called the national
sweat shop, because of its undesirable
working conditions and the absence
of any constructive labor policy of
its present administrator*."
