REALTY TRIBUTE PAID
TO UNKNOWN SOLDIER Wreaths From Canadian and U. S. Realtors Placed on Tomb After Rites in Amphitheater. SECRETARY WEEKS SPEAKS Pleads for Preparedness and Pa triotism Throughout America. Pausing: in their deliberations for sev eral hours yesterday, the National As sociation of Real Estate Boards made a pilgrimage to the tomb of the Un known Soldier at Arlington. There, after brief ceremonies in the amphitheater, ■where Secretary of War Weeks spoke, the assemblage marched to the tomb. The Unknown Soldier was honored inter nationally when wreaths from both the realtors of America and realtors of Canada were placed reverently on the sarcophagus. While the realtors formed a semi circle around the tomb, and a guard of honor of United States cavalrymen stood at rigid salute, William Bosley of Toronto, Canada, marched slowly up and deposited Canada's wreath. Bow ing reverently, he drew from his pocket a small silk Hag of the British Dominion and placed it upright in the wreath. President H. R. Ennis of the National Association then placed on the tomb the wreath of the American realtors, and all stood with bowed heads for a mo ment, until the sergeant of the guard of honor called attention. "Here we pay tribute to the service of the citizen in support of the na tion,” said Secretary Weeks. "We honor these men as energetic ser vants of the country. The walls of the United States can never be other than of the same extent and material as those of Sparta. As the Spartans said. ‘Every man is a brick.’ "Our reliance is upon the loyal spirit of our countrymen, so well rep resented by the spirit of the Un known whom we have buried here. The example of the Unknown Soldier and of the soldiers and sailors of all opr wars will ever keep alive the spirit of the people who enjoy the blessings of liberty and are anxious to preserve those blessings. “As we occasionally come to this spot, to this shrine of national pa , triotism, we renew our devotion to cur country and to those who have assured its continuance. As we pay tribute to the immortal dead, we know that the future of the United States depends upon the energetic support of each American. High commander, humble private, or ready citizen, each can aid in the work. Some may serve on the field of battle. Some may assist in that prepared ness which often assures national safety without the necessity of war. Each man who accepts the obliga tions as well as the privilege of a citizen is adding to the structure of national strength that will endure century by century. And as we leave this amphitheater and the cemetery after renewing our allegiance at the Tomb of the Unknown, we cannot fail to take awav with us to guide our future thoughts and endeavors, a keener loyalty and a more practical Sense of patriotism." The realtors were transported to Arlington in special electric trains provided bv the Washington Heal Es tate Board. The ceremonies were planned and carried out by John A. Petty, executive secretary, in con junction with officers from the War Department. CAPT. iiRRYHILL DIES, WAS COMING TO D. C. Made Valuable Surgical Discov eries—Founded Hospital in San Francisco.

URGE STREET VENDING BE BARRED DOWNTOWN Merchants and Manufacturers Op pose Sidewalk Sales in Con gested Area. Recommendation that no street vending be allowed in the business section of the city from Pennsylvania avenue to K street and 7th to loth streets was contained in a letter to the District Commissioners today from the Merchants' and Manufac turers' Association. Declaring that they are fully mind ful of the regulations in regard to street vendors, the association in its letter says “it seems that when these matters have reached the court the regulation has failed in its purpose.’ The letter suggests that the District Commissioners consult with the legal department of the District and make further effort to enforce the street vending rules. The association states: “Equity is violated through the sale of merchandise on public highways. The sidewalks and streets of this or any other community were designed and should only be used for the free movement of the public and without special or privileged use such as is now taken advantage of by the push cart. hand-wagon and other vehicle vendors on 7th street, G and other streets Quite the biggest nest of all is usually to be found at 11th and O streets. On one occasion fifteen carts vending bananas, onions, tomatoes, lettuce and flowers were found in front of one business property. Such vendors have been observed to he confirmed violators of the traffic reg ulations, not only as to the overstay of time, but to parking in the ahso lutelv prohibited territory such as the white mark at the curb to the corner. “If the streets are to be made the market space, it should be so under stood, so that all who desire may have an opportunity to use the space. “It has appealed to the Merchants' and Manufacturers' Association as an eminently unwise as well as unfair procedure for public space to be used in this manner. It is an unsightly spectacle at best and one that by no means comports with a metropolitan community such as the National Cap ital. “While the vendors complained of are in no sense competitive of the firms in front of whose buildings they stand, it is nevertheless ujifair arid unjust to those firms, who pay very heavy taxes and who bear the heat of summer, the cold of winter and jiro longed rainfalls, to have their bodhoods made undesirable by such, we believe, unlawful and unfair as sembly.” A London educational society pro vides materials and utensils for cookery classes for mothers.
