They were fqrtunato in this, they de clared, and had a good deal to say about the President, who shook them warmly by the hand. On ihe way out they met Dr. Mary Walker and listened to a short address from that well-known person. "We Just stood about the White House fountain while, she told us of some of tho things we ought to do in the world," said one. The young people were greatly Impressed, apparently, both by the President and by the well-known advo cate of woman's rights. Today the party will visit the Capitol.

Ice Cream Sold to - - Aid Flood Victims Society Leader Urges Adoption ofdrousers By Women Who Work Trousers would be a sensible dress for working women, thinks 3Trs. Christian Dominique Hemmick, Washington social leader and dictator of style. "The nnrroir skirt idea has come to such a pass," says ilrs. Hem mick, "that it is disagreeable. Vfbj not substitute comfortable and sensible trousers for the working woman's present dress. "The society woman with an auto or carriage at her command docs not feel the restrictions of narrow skirts, but tho poor working girl who has to use street cars or walk is seriously hampered by the extreme skirt fashions."

Mrs. Bryan, who is staying',at tho New Ebbitt, refused 'on first arrival to mako any statement for publication and she went at once Into secret confer ence with several of her followers. These .have been awaiting her arrival with impatience, for Mrs. Bryan whote here that she would be in the city last Friday, and it was announced first that she would bo here that day and then again the next day. It is known that Mrs. Bryan believes that she has some chance to win as a compromise candidate and it is an un dented fact that boht the Scott-Horton and Story factions of the D. A. R.. sometimes called the "administration" and the "conservatives," would both prefer to see Mrs. Bryan win than the other. With respect to pledged votes, Mrs. Bryan has far fewer than either Mrs. Story or Mrs. Scott. This is' partly be cause of much uncertainty about her candidacy. Mrs. Bryan was once in the race, then out of it by withdrawal, and then in again. Her friends in the District are reputed angry because Mrs. Horton was made the administra tion candidate. Mrs. Bryan bavin? been an administration woman In the past.

Real Estate Brokers Will Have Luncheon AMENDMENT WILL CONPEL E WLAWS States and Nation Must Pass Acts to Make Direct Election of Senators Possible. f More than fifty members of the Real Estate Brokers' Association will lunch at the New Ebbitt Saturday at 1 o'clock. This Is -the first semi-social affair the new brokers' organization has under taken, nnd from the acceptances that have been received. It is judged the plan meets tho hearty approval of the members. George Y. Worthington is chairman of tho committee on arrangements. Sereno Payne Gets Uncle Joe's Office Congiessman Sereno E. Payne of New York, father of the Payne-Aldrlch bill. Is the inheritor or uapitoi perquisites of "Uncle Joe" Cannon. Payne today took possession of "uncle Joe's" com modious office, adjoining the House chamber, known as the "Ex-Speaker's Room" that given dethroned Speakers in past Administrations. Now that Connecticut has ratified tho direct elections amendment, making the thirty-sixth State to Indorse it. the nec essary legislation to make the amend n ent effective will be enacted by Con gress and by the legislatures. Tho amendment will become officially a part of the Constitution as soon as proclaimed by the State Department. But certain legislation is needed in the States and also legislation by Congress. The legislation which Congress will be required to enact Is a measure providing for the election of Senators along thu ramo lines as the existing statute gov erning the election of members of ths House. Under the circumstances. It is not unlikely this will be done at the pres ent special session. The situation is In tho nature of an emergency calling for prompt action both by congress and by I tho State legislatures. borao or the State legislatures have already passed laws or are prepared to pass them providing for the placing of the names of the Senatorial candidates en the ballot, fixing the time of Sena torial elections and the like. That the amendment is to all Intents and purposes already a part of the Con stitution is the view held by some of the Senate lawyers. Moreover, It la point qut that. If -a. slate goes ahead and elects a'Senator by direct vote. In the absence of any, legislation by Con gress, it will undoubtedly be a valid election. Many expressions of gratification arc heard over the amendment. President Wilson said: "I am sincerely glad that the amend ment has been ratified so promptly and a reform so long fought for at last accomplished." The language of the amendment 13: "The Senate of the United States shall be .composed of two Senator! from each State, elected by the peop'o thereof, for six years, and each Sena tor shall have one vote. The electors i in each State shall have the qualifier- tlons requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legisla tures. "When vacancies happen in the rep resentation of any State In the Senate, the executive authority of such State shall issue writs of election to fill surh vacancies, provided that the legislatures of any State may empower the execu tive thereof to make temporary ap pointments until the people fill the va cancies by election as the legislature may direct." Following are the States that have ratified the amendment: Arizona, Ar kansas, California, Colorado, Connec ticut, Idaho, Illinois. Indiana. Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Masachusetts, Michi gan. Minnesota. Missouri. Montana, Ne braska, Nevada, Now Hampshire. New Jersey. New Mexico. New York, North Carolina, North' Dakota. Ohio, Okla. homa, Oregon, Pennsylvania. South Dakota, Tennessee. Texas.

Aroused by the delay through a tech nicality in the execution of Nathan Green, colored, condemned to die for assaulting a white woman pn Christ mas night, A. E. Dowell. first vice president of the 'Connecticut Avenue Citizens' Association, presented the fol lowing resolution to the association at the meeting of that body last nlsht in the Army and Navy Preparatory School: "While we have boasted fo'r rears that Washington streets are as safe at night as In the day, and that our wom en can walk upon them unaccompanied at any hour of the day or night with out fear, a confessed criminal, through a technicality, has so far escaped pun ishment. Our belief was proven false by the crime committed last December. "Now, whereas tho perpetrator of such a crlroo was promptly caught, fairly tiled, justly condemned, but still re mains unpunished because of legal technicalltv nnrf nt,m-mia ?niav Be it resolved. That this association deplores the mistaken zeal of those who have enabled this criminal to take ad vantage of a technicality to hinder Jus tIco .'l.,tne ca8e- That It deplores tho possibility of, the unavoidable delav in obtaining a final disposition of such a technicality by the appellate court, und that in order to prevent such de lays In any future case of this nature It urges that the Commissioners of the District of Columbia request the Con gress of the United States to enact a law which will make rape a capital offenso in the District, even when the accused pleads guilty, and that If the courts be not in session, a special term be called and the matter settled within thirty days of the committing of the crime."
