TRADE BODY URGES VOICE IN CONGRESS Board to Press Appeal for Representation and Fairer Split of Expense. National representation for the Dis trict o£ Columbia in both houses of Congress and the establishment of a definite and fixed fiscal relations plan «ndcr which the taxpayers of the Dis trict would pay GO per cent and the federal Government 40 per cent of the costs of the National Capital will be sought with renewed energy by the Board of Trade during the coming session of Congress. These and other important matters affecting the District were outlined at a special conference meeting of the officers, direct- s ami committee chair men of the tr •> body held last night at the liomr r,r Edwin C. Graham, Ihe presiden. f the board, at 2921 Forty-fourth place. Wesley Heights, when a comprehensive program of activities was mapped out for the V> in ter months. Taxpayers I tear 75 Per Cent. Determination of the committee of the board on municipal finance to urge upon Congress the establishment of the former 60-40 fiscal system was revealed last night as a part of plans of the board for a readjustment of t* Villon loaners here by which it is hoped a fairer and more equitable division of taxes would be made as be tween the Federal and local govern ments than the present system, under which local taxpayers are bearing ap proximately 75 per cent of the costs of the Capital as a result of the lump turn plan of Federal contribution. The hoard is completing a national tax survey in support of its position. With representatives of the District In the Senate and House to guard the interests of residents of Washington, members of the board believe many of the unfair features which have crept into legislation affecting the District in the past would be eliminated as better understanding of the needs of Washington was accomplished through the work of local representa tives in Congress. With a view to organizing the forces of the Board of Trade for a deter mined effort for these and other major legislative projects during the ap proaching session of Congress, the officials of the organization unani mously approved a suggestion by President Graham for the appointment of a legislative steering committee, which will be in charge of all legisla tive proposals to be laid before Con gress. Trade Co-operation Urged. The movement inaugurated last Jjune during consideration of the bud get estimates for the next fiscal year for co-operative action by all the ma jor trade organizations also was given the stamp of approval of the near 40 officials of the board attending the ses sion last night and plans were dis cussed for furthering this plan. It was felt that greater weight and con sideration would be given by Congress to requests of local trade organizations If they worked together on matters of outstanding importance to the city as a whole and could present a united front to Congress of such matters. A detailed study of the proposed budget for the next fiscal year, which calls for the appropriation of a total of $42,600,000, was presented to offi cials of the board by Joshua Evans, chairman of the municipal finance committee, who stated that it would be the purpose of his committee to limit the appropriations total which would make possible an equitable tax burden on residents of the District, and one which they could afford to pay, taking into consideration the amount to be Srovided by the Federal Government. [e recommended that all appropria tion items for new development pro jects, which would make necessary any increase in the present tax rate, be eliminated from the budget for the next fiscal year. This, he said, would be the only business-like method to be followed inasmuch as a blanket in dorsement of worthy development projects might, and probably would, result in boosting of the tax burden. “Watch Dog” Over Taxes. Declaring that it would be the pur poee of his committee to be “the watch dog” over the District tax bur den, Mr. Evans pointed out that the real estate property tax was the only flexible tax existing here and that re quests for needed and worthy projects ' probably would result ip an increase in this tax. which bow is 11-70 per |IOO, if action upon all these projects was taken during the coming year. Unless the Federal Government in creases its share of the costs es the National Capital, he said, the only al ternatives would be an increase in the gas tax, a bond issue or an advance from the Federal Treasury, already proposed, as a means of providing funds tor park extensions. A detailed study of the budget and revenues for the fiscal year 1928-29 was presented to the conference by Robert J. Cottrell, second assistant secretary of the board, showing the ex pected revenues to be 133,500,000, as against the United States’ contribu tion of $9,600,000, as under the exist ing fiscal plan, making a total ex pected revenue of $42,500,000, which would cover the budget as leeommend eri by the District Commissioners. The study showed that recurring and operating expenditures of the Dis trict. which must »>e provided for, would consume about 75 per cent of the estimated revenues for the next fiscal year, including a Federal con tribution of $9,000,000, or a total of $81,875,000. This would leave only about $10,625,000, the Btudy showed, for taking care of new developments. Objections to Bond Issue. E. C. Brandenberg and other offi cials of the board voiced objection to the bond-issue suggestion, or an in crease In the gas tax, imposition of pew taxes, or to an advance from the Treasury and indorsed the pro posal of the municipal finance com mittee that only such estimates for pew developments be urged as could fee taken care of under the $l7O tax rate. John Joy Edson, a past president of the Board of Trade, made a stirring appeal for national representation for the District of Columbia, declaring such representation to be the out standing need of the District. A resident of the District for G 4 years, Mr. Edson stated that he had found one thing to be “awfully lack ing" in the District government, and a thing that one day would have to be provided—that being a voice for the District residents in their gov ernment. He held it to be amazing that the Capital of the TJni’ed States was the only capital in the world where citizens were deprived of a voice in their government. “The true relation of the Federal Government to the District of Colum bia never yet has t*een established," he said. Describing the complicated and confused system of governmental management of local institutions, he declared that under such an arrange ment an efficient, intelligent and sat isfactory government never could be obtained. If the District had had representa tives in the House and Senate years ago many of the present unfair situa tions never would have developed, he so id. At the present time, he con tinued, there is no one in either House to correct even misstatements of fact concerning the District’s needs misstatements which often have jratiHfcl damage to the cause of the district. He cited one case in whipb CLAYTON APPEALS FOR D. C. SUFFRAGE Declares Arguments for Present Form of Govern ment Without Foundation. Arguments upholding the present form of government in the District of Columbia by members of Congress and others are inconsistent and with; out foundation, otherwise ail of the States would be clamoring for a change from an elective to an appoin tive standard, William McK. Clayton declared in presenting a resolution which was adopted by the Brightwood Citizens' Association, meeting in Holy Comforter Parish Hall, Georgia ave nue. last night, favoring the election of the Commissioners, Board of Edu cation and a delegate in Congress and the appointment by the President of the Engineer Commissioner. “There is nothing Just or equitable under present conditions, men are ap pointed to govern our affairs with names we are unable to pronounce tnd who are unknown to a majority of the citizens, and we are political irpliuns and the laughing stock of he country.” Mr. Clayton stated N’a? ional representation is desirable, he utid. but while waiting for that “glo rious day” it is essentia! that citizens lave elective control over their local overning officials. Outlines Suffrage History. fie declared he would "stake iiis all in an elective Judas Iscariot against in appointive Peter, Paul or John.'* He outlined the history of suffrage in the District, showing that it was taken away in 1878 because it was feared an uneducated, easily-swayed, recently freed negro population would be able to control the situation, which condi tion has now- been changed, because the average negro is as capable of sift ing out political problems and voting intelligently and without pressure as any one. » Copies of the resolution will be sent to the Federation of Citizens' Asso ciations and to District committee chairmen in both the House and Sen ate. Discrimination against residents of the District In fire insurance rates was charged in resolutions adopted urging Congress to enact a biff to con er on the insurance department of the District authority to supervise rates :ooking to the removal of discrimina tions as between risks of similar char acter within the District and as com pared with all risks in other juris dictions: also authority to supervise ind adjust damage claims. Change in Trolley Poles Urged. Removal of the center trolley poles .o the sides of the avenue on Georgia ivenue from Rock Creek Church road to the north end of the Brightwood tar barn will be urged upon the Wash ington Railway A Electric Co. Im provement of the car service on the fakoma Park line of the Capital Trac tion Co. is to be requested. It was jointed out that the service is entirely •’adequate on this line and also the Georgia avenue line of the Washing ton Railway & Electric Co., especially during rush hours, and an effort will be made to have the Takoma line double tracked at least te Concord avenue. A. C. Haight, chairman of the police and fire committee, was directed to confer with the captain in charge of No. 13 police precinct and with the captain of the fire station located within the territory with a view to the improvement of these two branches of public service. The fire apparatus is old and worn ogt and in need of replacement, it was said, to properly care for the rapidly increasing num ber of homes in the community, and it is sought to bring the police comple ment up to the quota needed for the proper patrolling of the section. Request is to be made for a traffic directing light at Georgia and Colo* rado avenues, and for the paving of Jefferson street between Fifth and Seventh streets and the alley between Rittenhouse, Sheridan, Georgia ave nue and Piney Branch road. To com plete the improvement of Georgia avenue from the wharves to the Dis trict line, It will be urged that this thoroughfare be concreted from Fern street to the District line, where It connects up with improved Maryland roads. Placing es crushed stone on and widening of Rock Creek Church road west of Georgia avenue also will be asked. New members elected were James R. Larcombe, Leon H. Carlton and A. H. Phillips. It was announced that entertainment and refreshments would be provided at the next meet ing. President Charles W. Ray pre sided. # ■ ■■ ■ Col. Hixson Reassigned. Lieut. Col. Arthur G. Hixson.

Mr. Edson praised the work of the Citizens’ Joint Committee on National Representation, which is at the head of the movement for an amendment to the Constitution of the United States which w’ould make possible representation in Congress for the District. Mr. Edson also joined with others in commending the movement for co operative action by the major trade bodies of Washington on mattera of importance to the city as a w'hole. Francis R.

Not only this, but the District lia* been forced to pay for extensions of water mains into Walter Reed Hospital and other Gov ernment institutions. Building Program. Stephen E.

This program would provide additional branch libraries in various sections of the District and other branches to be located in the public schools, such as the one now at East ern High School. Samuel J. Prescott, past president of the board, opposed any new District development projects which would cause an increase in the tax rate. Re ferring to the old Chain Bridge, which has been closed because of its danger out condition, Mr. Prescott declared that if it could not be replaced with out resulting in a boost in the tax burden on the District, it should re main closed. He also questioned the right of the Federal Government to require District taxpayers to pay for the operation of St. Elizabeth’s In sane Asylum, which ha declared is purely a Federal proposition. Mr. Graham outlined legislative pro posals being studied by committees of the board —lnch include, the Under hill bill for workmen’s compensation, as a substitute for the Fitzgerald bill; the proposed community chest plan for charities; a new land condemnation law; regulation of the character of private buildings erected within 800 feat of public buildings and parks; a mental hygienic clinic; street car mer ger; a law to wipe out “diploma mill'’ schools and colleges; and extension of a number of highways from the city to the District Uaes, THE EVENING STAB. WASHINGTON. I). C.. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12. 1927. GRANDDAUGHTER PAYS TRIBUTE AT TOMB OF WOODROW tVILSON Mary Faith McAdoo Places Lilies on War President's Shrine Before Pilgrims at Washington Cathedral. In the quiet, solemn depths of a Gothic chapel beneath the slowly ris ing mass of a great cathedral, men and women of all ages and stages found the object of their pilgrimage vesterday afternoon, and before the lighted tapers on a distant, niched altar shortened their waxen lengths a full inch they had come, had paid honor and had departed imbued with the nobility of ideals imparted to them by their intimate reverence of the body of Woodrow Wilson, buried there. Those 4">o reverencers of Wilson, his admirers in life, wended their ways from all parts of the District of Columbia to seek his tomb in Bethle hem Chapel of the Washington Cathe dral, where each Armistice day they go to do him honor. Yesterday, as on previous years, they were summoned at 4 o'clock by the chapel organ's notes swelling in “The Strife Is O'er, the Battle Done,” Inside the sacred sanctuary heads were bowed in solemn tribute to God for a moment before honors were heaped upon the memory of one of His creatures. There was a muffled rustle of movement, and men and women lifted their heads and turned their eyes to watch a golden-haired child—a little girl, Mary Faith Mc- Adoo —leave the side of her parents to step timidly yet confidently to the drawn iron grill to place a spray of lilies upon the marble tomb of her grandfather. William Gibbs McAdoo, son-in-law of America’s war President, watched his child perform her duty that seemed sacramental, and Mrs. MrAdoo, tlie dead Wilson’s daughter, libwed her head amid the solemnity of L4e moment, which was her daugh ter's and tier father’s. Former Pastor Says Prayer. Another pair of understanding eyes were focused upon the fair child, too, in ths gaze which Gordon Grayson, 9-year-old son of Rear Admiral and Mrs. Cary T. Grayson, and a favorite with the War President, directed at her. Gordon himself placed the flow ers in laßt year’s pilgrimage—and he remembered. ‘ Slowly she withdrew from the tomb to join her parents, a scant 2 yards from its portals. The grill swung shut at the touch of a vestmonted church officer and the Wilsonian pilgrims once again bowed their heads as Rev. Dr. James H.

En route to the station the troops will stop at the Canadian embassy, 174 G Massachusetts avenue, about 5 o’clock, to pay their respects. The Canadians who gave their lives while serving with the United States armies and the Americans who died while serving with Canadian forces in the World War "have consecrated and hallowed the ties of friendship" be tween tha two countries. Secretary of War' Davis declared yesterday after noon at the dedication in Arlington Cemetery of Canada’s "cross of sacri fice.” The imposing monument, erected by the Dominion government in memory of Americana who lost their lives w'hile serving with Canadian troops, w'as unveiled by Vincent Massey, the Canadian Minister, and accepted on behalf of the American people by Secretary of State Kellogg. Thousands of spectators watched the impressive ceremonies, made es pecially colorful by the fanfare of trumpets and bsgpipes.and the salutes of the Royal Canadian Regiment and the Royal 22d Regiment, fprminy part of the guard of honor. Peace Due to Understanding. Repeating the old text. “Greater Inva hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends," Sec retary Davis said: "Many of us imagine that the long peace that has existed between us is due to a treaty, now nearly 110 years old, for disarmament on the Great Lakes. That peace is due not to the treaty, but to the spirit that led to the treaty. It Is due not to a formal bond of agreement, but to the closer bonds of friendship. “True peace comes from the heart. That treaty provides for naval dis armament on the lakes: but it is silent about other armaments and concentra tions of forces on the shores of the lakes and along the land frontiers. Yet there have been no permanent armaments anywhere along the border. "Where there is a will to peace, no formal agreement is necessary: when it is lacking upon either side, treaties and conventions often become vain gestures. It requires only one to make war, but. two are necessary to make peace. Neighbors Most Friendly. "North America is the dwelling place of two of the most friendly neighbois of ancient or modern times. Our common frontier is probably more frequently crossed by the neighboring inhabitants than any other frontier in the world. "The young men who crossed the border and enlisted In the Canadian forces during the World War are the latest and most precious offering upon the altar of our mutual friendship. They are doad, but their spirit lives, cementing more closely the bonds of a friendship of over 100 years’ stand ing." The Canadian minister. In formally presenting the memorial to America, addressed Secretary Kellogg as fol lows: "On behalf and in the name of the government of Canada, I hereby pre sent through your good offices to the Government and people of the United State* this monument, the gift of the Canadian government and people to honor the memory of your citizens who served in the Canadian Army and gave their lives in the great war.” Kellogg Accepts Tribute. Secretary Kellogg replied: "It gives me a sense of deep satisfaction to ac cept upon behalf of the Government and the people of the United States this monument. May I ask you to convey to the government and people of your country the heartfelt thanks of the Government and people of the United States for the grateful remem brance which caused the erection of this splendid monument." Ths formal address of dedication was delivered by ths Canadian minis ter of national defense, J. L. Ralston, who asserted the cross would be a perpetual symbol of the fellowship existing between the two neighboring countries. “In life these sons of your land stood with ours,” he said, "Joined to them In service and sacrifice; so in death they are numbered with our own. Os that fellowship which even death could not break, this cross is the symbol. “By Us testimony ths world shall know that the people of our Dominion cherish with pride the memory of the mep, w’ho in life and death were our brethren. We look for the ways to administration. Intoned a prayer. It was a lengthy prayer, but one which carried the fervor of every worshiper in the little chapel, expressing, as it did, gratitude to God for the man Wil son. the President Wilson, and for the ideals of Wilson. When another hymn had been sung, Bishop James E. Freeman stepped be fore the tomb to deliver his verbal honor to Wilson, yet not so much to Woodrow Wilson, he explained, but to the virtues of the man and to the ideals for which he lived, labored and died. Those in the crypt turned their faees toward the bishop when he be gan talking and became visibly thoughtful when that cleric charged that one of the tragedies of America is its genius to forget The Great War ar.d the deaths of 77,000 American men occurred 'a short space of time ago and the life of it all “lingers in our memory—let us hope,” the bishop in? terjected. “for a long while.” And his plea which followed stapled unneces sary in its direction toward these rev erencers gathered with him in the presence of the dead Wilson: “Let us who are here resolve that what he stood for, lived for—yes. died so never perish from the earth!” Remain for Fveasoug. When he hail concluded his eulogy to Woodrow Wilson, Bishop Freeman explained that the cathedral’s regular evensong would follow immediately and he suggested that those who had not time to remain for the re3t of the services could leave quietly at that time. A few of those who had come distances eased from the crowded church, but so few were these that their absence was hardly noticeable. Prayer and benediction by the bishop followed, and when the clergymen apd their vested assistants filed from the chapel another pilgrimage was ended as departing admirers crowded about the grilled Wi’son tomb for a last, an intimate, honor. These annual pilgrimages to Beth lehem Chapel are planned by a group of women who, before Mr. Wilson’s death, met each year at his home to arrange Armistice day celebration. The honoring programs always are laid before Mrs. Wilson and she ap proves them. This year’s committee included Mrs. Kate Trenhojni Abrams. Mrs. Huston Thompson. Mrs. Blair Bannister, Mrs, H. E. U.

Col. J. M. Almond, former chaplain general of the Canadian Ex peditionary Force, offered invocation, including a prayer of thanksgiving and remembrance. The choir of St. John’s Church led in the singing of “O Valiant Hearts.” The actual unveiling was heralded by a general salute by the guards of honor. There were two groups of these, one consisting of the Canadian troops and the other of the 3rd Bat talion of the 12th United States Infan; try. With these guards standing at "present arms," trumpeters of the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery and the Roy a) Canadian Dragoons sounded the “last post.” After the presenta tion apd acceptance, pipers of the 48th Highlanders wailed a "lament" for the honored dead. Prayers of dedication and of peace were repeated by Col. John T. Axton, chief of chaplains of the United States Army. Then Secretary Kellogg, Sir Game Howard, the British Ambassador, and Canadian Minister Massey stepped for ward and laid wreaths on the monu ment. Wreaths also werp laid by Dr. J. H. King, minister of soldiers’ civil rc-establlshment, on behalf of Viscount Willingdon, governor-general of Can ada, and by representatives of the Canadian Legion, the American Legion, the Army and Navy Veterans’ Association of Canada, the George Washington Post of the -American Legion, tha United States Navy League, the Association of Canadian Clubs, the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Sons of the American Revolution, Tributes Exchanged. These formalities over, the Canadian Band played “The Star Spangled Banner” and the United States Army Band played “Qpd Save the King.” The official party then moved to the amphitheater, where Dr. King laid another wreath on the Tomb of America’s Unknown Soldier. Capt. IT. Colebourne, Dominion secretary-treas urer of Ottawa, also placed a wreath on the tomb on behalf of the veterans of Canada.

Armed bands, sometimes of as many as 40 men, fought Serbian gendarmes near the frontier. Jugoslavia sent something almost like an ultimatum to Bulgaria, whose sympathies with the Macedonians and the Macedonian revolutionary organi zation were well known. Bulgaria, in the interest of peace, declared mar? tia! law in the frontier regions. Muny arrests and reprisals were reported in Serbia and Macedonia. But while Bulgaria was immediately blamed, the Jugoslavs, rightly or wrongly, see in these events the hand of Italy, which Is believed to be trying to prevent a rapprochement among Jugoslavia, Bulgaria and Greece. France, which after the Lacarno treaty and during the fail of the franc? tended to contract upon herself, now seems to bo inclining toward a some what firmer foreign policy than a year ago. She desires both to conciliate Italy and to consolidate the Balkans, and sincerely believes that her treaty with Jugoslavia should facilitate both of these ends. But Fascist opinion in, terprets the treaty almost as an un friendly act, and other diplomatic moves probably will follow soon. Great Britain is earnestly trying to hold tba balance between France and Italy, as she has between France and Germany.
