APITAL ILL BE
SUFFRAGE
CENTER
Women Will Have Offices Here
From Which Campaign Will
Be Conducted.
General affairs connected with 'ie
conduct of woman suffrage campaigns
in different States of the union will
hereafter be conducted from suffrage
headquarters here. This decision was
reached today. Leaders of the move
ment hae felt the necessity for uniting
all different organizations Interested in
ti omen's suffrage and the Congressional
committee of the National American
Woman Suffrage Association was sent
here last fall to organize this work. The
carrying out of the pageant delayed
peirnanent organization along this line,
although it served to bring the need of
closer co-operation to the attention of
suffrage leaders, members of the Con
gressional committee declared today.
Since March 3, a complete reorganiza
tion of the women's suffrage organiza
tions here has been made. Many new
committees have been named and new
heads have been selected for many of
the old committees. Headquarters at
J 420 F street northwest, is a busy place
now in preparation for the big mac
meeting to be held in the Columbia
Theater April 7 and the events which
are expected to follow the "historical
advance on the Capitol."
Co-operation with the work of tae
national council of women will be se
cured through attendai -a at the annual
meeting of that organlation to be held
here April 16-19. of regular delegates
from the different woman suffrage or
ganlaztions of the country. Miss Flor
ence Etheridge. president of the State
Equal Suffrage Association of the Dis
trict of Columbia and originator of the
inaugural suffrage parade, has been
named by Dr. Anna Shaw, president of
the National American Woman Suffrage
Association, a delegate to the National
Council of Women here.
For the mass meeting here April T. Dr.
Anna Shaw and Mrs. Carrie Chapman
Catt, president of the International Suf
frage Alliance, have been chosen to
speak. It has now been decided defi
nitely to hold the meeting at 10 o'clock
at the Columbia Theater and to have
the delegates march to the Capitol to
present their petitions to the Congress
men of their several districts.
Hundreds of protests against the al
leged inefficiency of the police during
tile pageant March 3, continue to be re
ceived at suffrage headquarters. Among
those Just received are protests from
the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association.
Topeka. Mrs. Lucy B. Johnson, presi
dent: the Woman's Suffrage Association
of Dayton and Montgomery County,
Ohio. Mrs. Dorris C. Stevens, field sec
retary; the Nebraska Woman Suffrage
Association, Mrs. Viola M. Harrison,
executive secretary; the Iowa Equal
Suffrage Association. Des Moines, Iowa,
Ruby J. Eckcrson. State secretary, and
tfie Bhlnelander Equal Suffrage League,
of Rhlnelander. Wis.. Mrs. C. P. Crosby,
president.
'These letters all describe the manner
in which the crowd acted during the
progress of the pageant and take the
form of resolutions of protest agalnsv
the action of the police In falling to
provide "adequate protection."

District C. E. Union Indorses
P. S. Foster and L. M.
Thayer for Excise Board.
Lewis M. Thayer, prominent in busi
ness interests in the city, was chosen
today for second place on the Christian
Endeavor Union Mate for Excise Com
missioner, following a conference with
the executive board of the Anti-Saloon
League
A list of candidates for District Com
missioner to which the Christian En
deavor Union will be opposed Is being
made up for presentation to the Presi
dent. Two names most prominent on
the list are Cuno H. Rudolph, the pres
ent Commissioner, and Charles W. Darr.
prominently mentioned for a place on
the District Commission Both of these
men are opposed because of their al
leged failure to support the Jones-Works
bill, or for alleged loxness in maters
relating to the strict enforcement of
the excise laws.
Percy S. Foster was nominated for
Commissioner by the executive board of
the Christian Endeavor Union at a
meeting last night.
Shoemaker Is Noominated.
A. E Shoemaker, attorney for the Anti
Saloon League, was nominated as one
of the temporary candidates for the ex
cise board, and Myron J. Jones, di
rector of the educational department of
the Y. M. C. A., was suggested for a
place, but he declined. A committee,
composed of Rexford L. Holmes,
Horace M. Glllman and Ell C. Trum
bower, head of the citizenship depart
ment of the Christian Endeavor Union,
was then appointed to taKe charge of
the matter.
Mr. Holmes said today that the can
didates chosen by the Christian En
deavor Union were being selected with
a view to placing the organization on
record in its attitude toward the liquor
traffic here and the carrying out of the
excise law. Mr. Foster, who Is a prom
inent member of the Immanuel Baptist
Church, Is superintendent of the Sunday
school, and has been associated with
Christian Endeavor work for many
years. He Is regarded by the church
people, Mr. Holmes said, as the logical
candidate to oppose those, who are de
clared to be In "sympathy with thp
liquor interests." He was Intended orig
inally as a candidate for the excise
board, but it was thought he would
make a better Commissioner.
' Campaign To Be Waged.
Twelve speakers will be selected by
the Christian Endeavor Union to speak
In different churches in support of thu
Christian Endeavor candidates. Prac
tically every church In the city will
be asked to take up the matter, and
ministers will be requested to point out
to their congregations the benefits
which will come from the choice of the
Christian Endeavor candidates.

ASK YOURSELF-
.j.-i
why you should live in another man's house and pay rent when you might as well
be paying it to yourself.
ASK YOURSELF
why you should deprive your family and yourself of the pride and satisfaction of liv

the start.
' ASK YOURSELF
if you shouldn't make a sacrifice of a few valueless luxuries, which are forgotten
tomorrow, in order to provide a home for yourself and loved ones.

Housekeepers' Alliance Urges
That Center Market Foods
Be Kept Covered By Owners.
That there has been a marked Im

in Center Market during tho past three
years and that still further improve
ment Is necessary Is the statement made
In the report of the Housekeepers' Al
liance through the committee on civic
problems and sanitation.
The organziatlon propose! to make
monthly reports hereafter and will ask
that all foods which can not be washed
before being eaten shall be protected
from flies, and that the market be
screened, as Is a similar institution In
Kansas City. The report is signed by
Miss Georgia Robertson, chairman: Mr3.
Har-'ev Wiley, Mrs. William T. Samp
son. Mrs. Richard Walnwright, Dr.
Louise Ross and Dr. Lillian Le Kites.
The supervision of sanitary conditions
'n the market comes about through ac

of the National Civic Association,
which appointed a committee to Inspect
the market of the District. Recom
mendations of this committee tendlns
to promote sanitation and public com

The work of supervision was turned

Takes Cold Plunge
In Chesapeake Bay
In spite of the fact that he opened the
bathing season yesterday by taking a
lunge into Chesapeake bay. Assistant
Scout Commissioner Wood today feels
no 111 effects from his experlerce. Al
though the water was as cold as Mr.
Wood has ever experienced, and chilled
him through, was quickly warmed.
You remember the old-style, antique,
diamond-fronted type of theatrical press
agent, who could conjure a "gorgeous
galaxy of beauty" out of hardened old
chorus veterans and a "resplendent
scenic investiture" out of a few faded
strips of canvas? You do?
That press agent, over whose neg
lected grave Truth weeps not In mourn
ing, has little or nothing on the United
States Navy of today. When the navy
goes out gunning for recruits, it puts a
magnificent imagination and an abso
lutely awe-lnsplrlng optimism on the
Job. It employs literary talent of a
unique order.
To read of the life of Jolly Jack Tar
aboard a Dreadnaught Is to read a tale
that fairly makes the blood thrill with
the Joy of adventure and of a glorious,
care-free life that would make Captain
Kldd and Jack Silver green with envy.
That Is, as tho publicity bureau of the
United States navy recruiting service
paints It.
That $16 Seems Small.
To the average man the $16.00 per
month sailor on board one of Uncle
Sam's warships has a tough Job. It has
never been thought Idyllic, Ideal, or
exactly fitted for the young blood crav
ing adventure. But hearken to this
blissful word-painting from the navy
circulars which are being spread broad
cast over the country In the effort to
stimulate enlistments:
"Would you enjoy meeting the men
who drive our great Dreadnoughts
through the seven seas: men who can
shoot with a ninety-ton gun as ac
curately as you would with a twenty
two caliber rifle, probably more ao;
men who put an SOO-pound shot through
a moving target miles away?
"Would you like to talk to men who
from long travel and experience are
really citizens of the whole world; men
who talk of Manila and London, Suez
and Panama, as you talk of the suburbs
of your own town?
More Things To See.
"Would you like to associate with
spirited, athletic young men who love
open-air life, football, boxing and- other
sports? Men who love the salt tang of
the sea, whose days are filled with new
sights and new experiences, who have
traveled and know foreign countries,
other climes?
"Men who are like this and do things
like this are navy men. You would like
to talk with these men and know them
well, wouldn't you? Why? Because
their life has been an Interesting one;
their experience has made them Inter
esting. How much finer It Is to be one
of them.
"Meet a navy man. talk with him.
end when he tells you that he has a
Job for life you will be surprised, and
after you have talked with him you
will know what an exceptional oppor
tunity for promotion, eta. the navy of
fers to a man who is worth while.
"Your opportunity to know more ci
these men, to Join them, to become one
of them. Is here. Talk It over with your
parents and use the cnclored blank. It
you or your parents wish to write me.
use the enclosed envelope, which re
quires no postage stamp. Unless your
jarents object, fill out tha blank with
the first pen or pencil you can get hold
of. If they do object, ask them to send
lor the booklet themselves."
