TWO O'BRIENS AVENGE ONE SLUR ON DIXIE Journalist and Cop Help Negro. Punish NEW YORK. May 7. The patriot- Ism of T. J. O'Brien, a well-known New Tork newspaper man. Is Just as Intensely developed as his courage. Mr. O'Brien knowa no North, no South, and cheers and applauds Just as lus tily for a rendition of Dixie as he does when hla favorite band plays the -Marseillaise." By way of diversion yesterday Mr. O'Brien dropped Into the Rlalto Thea ter, where he Knew films snowing the movements of our troops and future generals and admirals were to be dis played. His seat happened to Da cirecuy De- hind those of two flashily dressed young mulattos. When a picture of the West Point caaets was snown. William Cole, of West lSUh street, the flashier and more blatant of the negroes, loudly voiced his dlsrust by saying. "To h : with all thla pa triotic stuff'" Without much ado Mr. O'Brien lean ed forward and told Cole to be care ful about his remarks. A few minutes later the band struck up "Dixie." The audience aro and cheered the stirring strains to the echo: Cole and hla companion re mained humped In their chairs until the cheering subsided, when the for mer again voiced a slurring and trea sonable remark. Mr. O'Brien left his seat and re turned with Policeman O'Brien (not related to the newspaper man), who escorted Cole to the West Side court, where he waa fined IS for his failure to observe the Federal warning, "Keep your mouth shut."

Malice and falsehood were terms applied by Secretary of the Navy Daniels today to the "round robin" signed by thirty sailors chargingiill treatment and neglect to patlents.on the naval hospital ship Solace. Secretary Daniels' statement fol lowed a report by a civilian board which cleared the medical officers of the Solace of blame, and held the charges as untrue and grossly ex aggerated. The conclusions cf this board, wWch was composed of Dr. William H. Welch, Dr. Abraham Flexner.and Nathan Straus, were that there was no lack of medical attention or care given to Solace patients, and that the round robin charges, resting, on gossip and hearsay, were composed by one person, who wove Into It com plaints from a number of sources. Denies Every Charge. Taking up seriatim rhe seven charges contained In the round robin, the committee reported that the framer of the round robin was the only sailor who said patients were compelled to carry their own bag gage, that charges of shortage of drinking water were grossly exagger ated; that the charge that dishes used by measles patlenta were wash ed In a lavatory filled with scarlet fever and mumps germs Is "Impos sible and absolutely absurd;" that food served the men waa abundant and of excellent quality: that men were not compelled to sleep on the deck, as charged, but on litters on the deck; that only two men were found, one the framer of the round robin, who had not1 washed for five days while on board the Solace, the others washing every day; and that the last and most serious cnarge, that blankets of contagious patients were piled on the deck and redis tributed without sterilization, was wholly without foundation. What action. If any.' will be taken against the sailors who signed the round robin has not been announced by the Navy Department. MARRIED FIFTY YEARS Major Loeffler and Wife Celebrate Gqlden Wedding . MaJ. Charles D. A. Loeffler. who fifty years ago was a dashing soldier-bridegroom, and the woman he led to the altar at that time, last night received the good wishes of friends on their golden wedding. The celebration was held at 1632 P street northwest, where the Locfflers have lived for forty-five years. Major Loeffler enlisted In the United States Cavalry. In 1658. He fought in Indian wars in the South west, and served through the civil war with the army of the Potomac For a time he was bodyguard to Sec retary of War Stanton, and later was made confidential doorkeeper at the White House, serving until after the Roosevelt Administration. Patriotism and Wise Finance An investment in United States Govern--ment 31 Liberty Loan is both patriotic and wise. I know of no stocks dr bonds in the pres ent situation, plunging deep into war as we are, that purely in an investment sense, are so attrac tive as these 3 non-taxable United States Government bonds bonds that are convertible into higher interest bearing issues if any are put out by the Government. They are the most attractive because they furnish the soundest and safest investment in all the world, and at this juncture safety counts. Free from taxation their interest yield will measure up well with the net yield of other sound securities after deducting all taxes. Moveover, if the war continues for two or three more years the Government will be com pelled to put out other issues, with always mounting rate of interest, and these 37 bonds are convertible into the issues bearing the higher interest yield. And too, at the end of the war, be it near at hand or far away, the United States Government war bonds then obtaining, either those of the present 3 issue or the issues of later date, bearing higher rates of interest, will undoubtedly go to a premium to a very hand some premium, I should say. Ordinarily one takes great chances in strongly urging the general public to invest in any particular stock or bond, but this is one of the times when one can justify himself in so urg ing, as he takes no chance at all. It is both the patriotic thing to do and the smart thing to do to invest liberally according to one's means in this Liberty Loan Government issue. I am saying this over my own signature to give it whatever additional weight a personally signed argument may have over the impersonal "we" of editorial form. 1 cannot indorse this investment too strongly.
