The war service fund of the District
Red Cross was swelled today by con
tributions from department store
clerks. Each gift represented a per
sonal sacrifice, and the finance com
mittee was encouraged by this evi
dence of the unselfish war In which
citizen forces of the National Capital
are raising their share of Red Crosa
war funds.
The employes of 3oldenberg"s sent
M. total of 11,013.72 to Henry B. F.

tion from the men. women, boys, and
girls of the establishment as an ex
pression of patriotic devotion and the
desire to serve humanity.
Bridge Club Help.
An auction bridge club today sent to
Mr. Macfarland a letter explaining
that the members desired to give the
proceeds of the playing to the Red
Crosa Instead of" awarding prizes to
the players. Inclosed with the letter
was a check for xilS. and the writer
promised to add to the amount from
time to time.
Mr. Macfarland said today the
finance committee la particularly grat
ified at the small subscriptions which
come from clerks and employes of

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."

SAYS ROUND ROBIN
CHARGES ARE LIES
Daniels Denounces Solace
Sailors' Complaint
FINDS STATEMENTS UNTRUE
Board Gears Medical Officers of
All Blame on Hospital Ship.
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.
