Ice Output Exceeds Demand Despite Sultry Weather Here Capital Will Have IVo Trouble Keeping Cool —- Icemen’s Good Memory Wins Praise. While Washington yesterday was sweltering in a midsummer temperature that sent streams of perspiration trickling down the faces of persons on the streets, there emerged from the shadows of a building In a cer tain section of the northwest a man wearing a thick sweater, gloves and other wintry clothing. Straight out into the blistering sun shine he walked, and while passers-by mopped brows that ware wrinkled in perplexity and wonder, this man de liberately began to swing his arms and beat his sides in an apparent ef fort to ward off a chill. Shortly afterward'he was Joined by a second man, dressed similarly, and the two launched into a conversation something like this: f “Say, Bill, this sun fells good, does-, n’t it?" “Burn right. Fifteen degrees above zero ain’t so comfortable, leastways when you’ve gotta stand ft for half an hour or so. Gimme 90 any old day.” “Sure. But say, this ain’t no slouch of a sun today, neither. I’m getting warm with this sweater on.” “Me. too. I’m hot as blazes.” “Bet’s go back and get cooled oft." “Awright. Nuthin’ like an ice house in the summertime, after alb” All of which is merely byway of introducing the annual hot weather ice story. Here are the cold facts: There Is lots of Ice on hand In Washington. No chance of a famine. Plenty In storage. More production than demand. Season about . two PRESIDENT. AND WIFE END MAYFLOWER TRIP Party, Which Includes Father of Mr Coolldge, Returns to White House After Week Bud Best. \ President .and Mrs. Coolidge re turned to the White House this morn ing after spending' the week end resting on the Mayflower. Among the ? nests on board was the President’s ather, John C. Coolidge. who is visit ing at the White House tot the first time He came to Washington with the ‘.President when the latter re turned from Vermont, after the funeral of Calvin Coolidge. Jr. Others to accompany the Executive on his week end trip were his son, John, Mr. and Mrs. Frank W. Stearns of Boston and Mra Arthur Capper, wife of the Senator from Kansas. Mrs. Coolidge seemed to have been much strengthened byAhe change of scenes. The standard three ratals a day for children should be the. order given by the beginning of the .third year. Light lunches in the midday morning and light afternoon onea according to months late, flight temporary let up in orders due to exodus of Wash ington’s cjimate boosters to seashore. Large quantities of ice cream and other hot weather refreshments be ing consumed. Prices about the same. Such are the expressions obtained, in a canvass today of many of the leading ice manufacturers. Incidentally, it might not be' Amiss to consider the community ice man and to muse upon his uncanny mem ory. Every day, he drives his truck or wagon up and down the streets of his neighborhood, and in and out .of alleys, stopping at the doors of perhaps four or five hundred customers. If Mrs. Smith at the beginning of the season gives him a standing order for twenty-five pounds of ice daily, he —that is. the average experienced ice man—does not have to inquire day after day of Mrs. Smith what her order Is. Nor does he consult a note book. He merely glances at Mrs. Smith’s house, remembers somehow or other, maybe by Instinct, that the Smiths always get twenty-five pounds and proceeds -to .chop that amount, more or less, without further ado.. He passes two doors where some com petitor serves ice and, stopping at the third house, takes in tbe forty pound, chunk that the Joneses always get. To the customers, the iceman and his, usually unfailing memory are taken as matters of course. But when one reflects that his brain retains tge widely varying orders of- several hundred families, and specifies, fur ther, just how to cut the ice to fit the particular refrigerator for which it is destined, it is worthy of com ment. at least.

Following the example set by the founders of the American Republic in 1776, the people of Paris within 13 years, or 135 years ago today, sounded a second call to liberty. Simultaneously with that call fell the BastiUe —a dreaded prison which for hundreds of years had been the fear and terror of those who gained the disfavor of the royal house of Prance. Since that day Frenchmen in all parts of the world have celebrated Bastille day, July 14. as Americans celebrate Independence day, and look with pride upon the feat of the en raged mob of Parisians as the begin ning of liberty for France. The up rising on that July day in Paris was marked by terrible deeds that were not witnessed in the American bid for freedom, but which are mitigated by the Infinitely greater terrors in flicted upon the people of France than fell to the lot of the colonists of the 13 states. The same tricolor that led the mob to vanquish the supposedly impreg nable Bastille and release its pris oners, is being flown today In almost every nation in the world. In com memoration of the beginning of the French revolution, and Bastille day, the beginning of a new France. Many exaggerated stories of the happenings within the stone walla of this Parisian citadel, built In 1369, were rife among the French, but hundreds of cruelties and terrors were committed in its cells and dungeona During the latter part of Us existence the jpopnlace was terri fied by the famous "lettres de cachet,” or secret warrants. Issued In the name of the king, but with blanks where the names of the prisoners were Inserted at the will of royal ministers, who were often pursuaded to issue these warrants against their personal opponent and offenders of their friends and favorites. Children, heirs of titles and positions, who might, when of age, cause trouble, were often confined on these war rants. . Chicagoans Here in De Luxe Bus. The first autobus party to make a tour from Chicago to the Atlantic seaboard arrived in Washington to day from Atlantic City.
