George Washington University Hos pital was besieged all morning by un fortunate applicants for treatment, r.ianv of whom dragged themselves through the chilling rain only to be told that they would have to come agalu later. Many others, who weie repre sented by friends, or who used the telephone- were given a like message. Though each applicant was told not to call until a little before Z o'clock, three score of them crowded the hall way of the dispensary before 1. In many lespects they presented a pitiful sight. Young men and voting women were in the majority, and they weie evidently in many 3tages of the disease. Sev eral patients were brought from the Tu- "bcrculosls Hospital to receive an injec 'tlo nof the bacilli. Practically all of these cases were, accepted.

Little children, he raid, would be taken first, preferable those who had the disease In congeni tal form, as this was the most cllrficili of cases and the results shown could not be mistaken.

Turkish batus. dieting and weight-reducing exercises of all characters were Indulged In b a score of riders, despite the rain yes terday. The game, however, is deemed by the riders to be worth the candle, for the winner of this race will be considered to have the fastest saddle horse In this section of the country. Consequently army men are anxious to win the honor with an army horse, and are leaving no stone unturned to lessen the weight to be carried by their mounts in the event. It Is expected that many horsewomen also will enter this race, and as some of the best horses In and about Wash ington are owned by women, keen rivalry exists between the feminine and masculine contingent of entries. Among the women riders who will probably participate In the event are Miss Helen Buchanan. Miss St. G. Greble. Miss Dasha Allen. Miss Jeannette Allen, Mrs. R. C. Burleson, and others.
