ANACOSTIA PLANS FOR CELEBRATION Women Will Have Part-in Preparing Program Which Will Mark Opening of New Pumping 'Station Junior Order, U. A. M., Will Observe Its Sixtieth Anniversary. The situation, growing out ot the pending anti-alien land owning legisla tion in California, today became one de manding active attention torn both the President and Secretaryof. 'states Bryan. The Japanese government has renewed its protest against the measure as amended in the California Senate, and has frankly told the Administration that, while an attempt to disguise-has been made, the measure is still chiefly directed against the .Japanese. It is expected that, a formal protest bearing the sanction of the Tokyo1'' gov ernment lllbe made to thV President through the Staf eMepartment .as. soon as it is definitely certain -"trie measure will pass. The President himsejf ; does not be lieve that he can 'take anvonicial -action to prevent the passageof the bill. Secretary of' State Bryan arrived at the. Executive offices almost slmultane-1 ousiy with President Wilson today. They conferred at length on the Japa nese attitude as expressed by Ambas sador Chlnda -during his conference with the President esterday. It was decided that the. situation should be ery carefully watched, and that. If necessary, a representative of the State Department '.would proceed to Sacra meuto so that first-hand information would be available. Following the con ference, both the President and Secre tary Bryan said -that there was no pub lic statement to be made at present. The objection originally raised to the bill now pendingUn Sacramento that it was directed solely, against the Japa nese and -Chinese, has been met by amending it. to Include all aliens. In doinc "sof President Wilson holds the California lawmakers made their bill Feneral ,ln its application, and, there ore, the Federal Government has no power to step In. It is understood here that already in Japan plans are -under way for gi gantic boycott'' of -American goods should California insist on enacting the proposed law. President Wilson re grets this 'and is doing everything in his power-to demonstrate to Japan that the general feeling" throughout-the Uni ted States is "friendly.

There is no reason to suppose, however, that the re lationship is limited to any particular tooth or group of teeth. Organic or structural changes in or about the eye, resulting from the teeth, have been observed in many varied forms; and Inflammation of alniobt every structure of the eye, depending upon or at least attributable to dental trouble, has been re ported. The remarkable fact is that not infrequently the patient is wholly unconscious of anything wrong with his teeth. Blindness has even followed decay of the teeth extend ing to the floor of the orbit and involving the optic nerve." The above statement shows the importance of having your teeth examined by a SPECIALIST, for your eye trouble may be directly traced to a bad tooth of which you are UNCON SCIOUS, but which I would see immediately.

The University of the United states a splendid undergraduate and graduate Institution, which shall be located In the District of Columbia and shall have ample iaUlitiis, not only for the usual undergraduate courses, but for advanc ed study and research, and which shall be provided for and under the control of Congress, Is the substance of a bill to be introduced in the Senate by Sena tor Dillingham. The bill follows numerous suggestions for the establishment of a national uni versity in the Nation's Capital. In a recent address. Ambassador Bryce de scribed the absence of such an Insti tution as one of the most glaring needs of the' nation. H. K. Bush-Brown presented the bill to the universities committee of the Board of Trade esterday, and pointed out the great advantages of such a university. William B. King also approved the measure and said it would bo .the Am erican application of the Cecil Rhodes Idea of education It is planned to make tne university accessible to every citizen. The committee appointed a sub-com mittee to eliminate objectionable fea tures from tne bin introduced in con gress by Senator Oalllnger. which pro vides for a cleaning out of Institutions which have been chartered under the present law, with the Intent of defraud lnr the public. The present law, it is said allows so-railed colleges and universities to be chartered, that come r.owhere near tilling the standard requirements. Such institutions, however, draw many stu dents because of the ease with whlcn a degree is obtained, although these de grees are said to be bogus. The measure is national in Its scope, and requires all institutions to be chartered by Congress. An academic degree would then have a. national sig nificance. A. H. Snow and William 11. King will confer with Senator Gallin gcr in an effort to eliminate the features which the committee did not approve and report back to the committee. Those present were William K. Cooper, chairman, William B. King, A. II. Snow, Charles R. Dean, II. K. Bush Brown, and William M. Shustcr.
