GERMANS RROTEST REVALUATION BILL i i Government Between Two Fires on Measure Naming Security Values. By the Associated Press. BERLIN, May 15.—The German government finds itself between two tires in its revaluation project ad vanced in March. The draft of the bill whereby the war loans and pre-war government obligations would be revalued at 5 per cent, mortgages with certain re strictions at 25 per cent and industrial obligations at 15 iter cent, has caused a storm of protest not only among ihe opposition but also among the staunchest adherents of the govern ment coalition. If less has been heard recently about the matter it has been because of the presidential campaign which sidetracked all other issues. Compromise Made. To appease public sentiment the coalition parties announce a compro mise with the following chief features: Mortgages without restrictions to be revalued at 25 ]>er cent, industrial ob ligations at 25 instead of 15 per cent for persons owning them since before 1320 and for holders of government securities a system of lotteries to pro vide the possibility of the lucky ones obtaining 10 instead of 5 per cent re valuation. Although the government counts upon a safe majority to carry the com promise law through, the Rechistag at tacks from every side may defeat these hopes. Industrial circles, through the Boersen Zeitung, say industry is unable to meet the increased revalu ation percentage and the Morgenpost, speaking for small savers, holds the compromise quite unsatisfactory. The Socialists demand that profits made during the inflation period be taxed to enable the government bet ter to revaluate the holdings of the small savers. How bitterly disappointed the gen eral public is over revaluation plans may be seen from the fact that on the eve of Von Hindenburg's inaug uration holders of securities of all ranks registered vehement protest against it at a mass meeting in the great Sport Palace. Goats Sold for Jewish Feasts. Every year in the United States thousands of goats, specially raised on the farms in the South, are brought tip and sold for shipment to large lewish centers all over the country. The goats' meat is used in the Jewish feasting festival after the passover. From the country around Thomas ville. Ga„ alone, a shipment of 1.000 head of goats was made up for dis 'rihution along the North Atlantic goast.

The great highway for the social world led to Twin Oaks yesterday, where an Oriental city was fully es tablished on the spacious grounds surrounding the mansion. The nat ural beauty of the gardens was heightened by a bewildering scene in ; which the brilliant hues of the Orient ran riot. The artistically constructed booths were hung with rare rugs, silks, tapestries and other products ol the looms of those countries. Loveliest of the booths was that of India, where rich wares were dis pensed by Mrs. Lawson-Jolinston, wife of the attache of the British embassy; Mrs. Broderick, also of the embassy, and Miss Heilmann, Miss Natalie Hammond. Mrs. Cecil and Mrs. George Summerlin also assisted. Tea was served in the sun parlor overlooking the rolling lawn and the tea table was presided over by Mrs. Keith Merrill, the Miles. Daeschner and Mrs. William R. Castle, jr., who alternated through the afternoon. Mrs. Keith Merrill was in an unusual costume of yellow crepe, finished in black, made in smock fashion. She wore a picture hat of black horsehair braid trimmed with hluck Paradise. | The Allies. Daeschner wore identical gowns of golden brown crepe meteor with a front panel of white, with which they wore small tan straw hats and tan tweed sport coats. Maypole Dance Given. A Maypole dance was given pre ceding the tableaux, the pole set on the hill above the pool, where the mosque was placed, and young girls dressed in white with Spring blos soms in their hair danced to the ac companiment of the Navy Band. Pre ceding the Maypole dance children dressed as yellow butterflies and with early Spring wild flowers danced be fore the May queen and her ladies in waiting, while boys as delectible choc olate drops pranced around. Tables were placed in the house and on up per and lower porches for bridge and mah jong, Mrs. Wilbur J. Carr being in charge. Among those who attended the fete were the Secretary of* the Navy anil Mrs. Wilbur, Mine. Daeschner and her two daughters. Mine. Matsudaira and her two daughters, the Minister of Sweden, Capt. Wallenberg; the Min ister of Bulgaria, Mr. Panaretoff: the Minister of Hungary, Count Szechenyi; the Minister of Austria, Mr. Prochnik; the air attache of the Italian em bassy. Wing Comdr.

Mrs. Lewis Newton Murray, Miss Mary Morgan, Mrs. Robert Hinckley, Mr. and Mrs. Percival McCeney-Werlich, Mrs. James Dudley Morgan, Mr. and Mrs. John W. Belt, Mrs. Lyman B. Kendall, Mrs. THE EYE KING STAR, WASHINGTON, D. C., FRIDAY, MAY 15, 1925. P. Lee Phillips, Mrs. James Carroll Frazer, Capt. Adolphus Andrews, Mrs. Charles G. Matthews, Mrs. Anthony Wayne Cook, Miss Dorothea Denys. Mrs. Jack Biddle, Mrs. William Bar ret Ridgely, Mr. and Mrs. George Oak ley Totten, Mrs. Thomas F. Walsh, Mrs. John A. Hull, Miss Daisy Pren tice, Mrs. Elic Scott Carroil, Mrs. Theodore Hance Tiller, Mrs. Richard C. Dean, Mrs. William H Woodward, Mrs. John P. Jackson and Miss Alice Harriman. ’ Mrs. George Barnett was in her complete and elaborate Chinese cos tume, the shoes adding little to the comfort of her injured foot, but mak ing the costume the more effective. Attractive Flower Booth. Perhaps the most fascinating of all the booths was the flower booth of Mrs. Charles Burnett. She wore a costume of green plaited crepe with a picture hat of the same shade. Her assistants were native Japanese in the gay native kimonos, selling sprays of fruit blossoms and flowers best known In the Flowery Kingdom. A small tree was hung with crepe paper blossoms, so realistic as to look at first glance like a flowering cherry tree like those in Potomac Park. As sisting her were Mnte. Sawada, Mme. Yatahe. Mme. Kimura, Mme. Inouye, Mme. Kmvashimu. Mme. Ivawamuya, Jlmf. Ishizawa, Mme. Tsutsumi, Mme. Miura. the two daughters of the Am bassador, Miss Setsuko Matsudaira and Miss Masako Matsudaira, and little Miss Margaret Moore and Jane Moore, daughters of Mr. Frederick Moore, adviser to the Japanese em bassy. Mme. Inouye, daughter of Gen. Haraguchi, former military attache of the embassy, and wife of the assistant military attache, aided in the sale of the pretty blossoms, which mean so much to the natives of the Flowery Kingdom. Mme. Saivada and Mme. Kimura showed the stately iris in purple and white and explained to the purchaser that they are the flowers of the boys’ festival, “Tango no sekku,” in the month of May in Japan, and. being j the mothers of sturdy hoys, that iris J in Japan means “shobu.’’ which, trans [ lated into English, is to contest and win against all odds. The white flag lilv. known in Japanese as ayarne, is the sword-leaf iris to them. The daughters of the Ambassador offered charming little clusters of nadeshiko. known in this country as the old-fashioned pink, front which the cultivated carnation has been grown. The nadeshiko means maidenhood in Japan, and it is an interesting fact that from this dainty pink, represent ing maidenhood in the East, has come the carnation, which we of the West ern world use as an emblem for Moth ers’ day. In the afternoon a pony for the de l light of the children was busy every! minute. Other booths, busy all the afternoon and evening:, were: The streets of Cairo, where refresh ments and supper were served by the ladies of the State Department; a bazaar in India, under the chairman ship of Mrs. Lawson-Johnston, Mrs. Broderick and the ladies of the Brit ish embassy; Siberian booth—ice cream served by ladies in Russian costume, under the patronage of Mrs. Herbert Hoover; Chinese city—many novelties were displayed and Chinese games played: in charge of the ladies of the Navy and under the patronage of Mrs. Curtis D.
