THE WASHDfGTON TIMES. SATURDAY. JUNE 16,' 1917.
LOAN TOTAL GROWS
WITH EVERY HOUR
Nearly a Billion Excess Is
Now Anticipated.
SECOND ISSUE IS PLANNED
Officials Anxious for Word to Go
to Land of-Kaiser.
Treasury officials checked up to
day a. Hat of Liberty loan figures
that ever mounted higher.
Aa their work proceeded, they
were more than convinced that close
to an extra billion of subscriptions
had been added. In addition to the
work of tabulation, they had ts plan
about paring- down allotments. In
general. It may be said that this will
be done by slicing off the larger
subscriptions made by multi-million
alrea or by big banks. There will
be practically no slicing of the smal
ler Individual subscriptions.
With the first loan such a big suc
cess, officials are already consider
ing the flotation of a second Issue,
but this will probably not be under
taken before September 1. That
campaign will last for about thirty
days, and probably will call for a
loan aa large aa the first.
Asks Help For Furore.
Secretary of Treasury McAdoo, In
thanking officials and committees
throughout the country, asked that
tbey maintain their organlzatlona so
that they may operate in spreading
the second loan.
Returns kept pouring In all day, and
It may be Monday before the final
count can be made. The estimate of
an extra J 1,000.000,000 subscriptions
was somewhat lowered as returns ar
rived, though officials believed that at
been oversubscribed.
least 1800,000,000 or t900.000.000 had
Cable facilities are open to neutral
countries for announcing the totals,
and the Government Is very willing
that the outcome of this loan should
reach Germany through those
sources. They believe that by the
gigantic registration for the new
army, and the American readiness
to subscribe. Germany will at last be
convinced that the United States la
In this war to a finish.
RESTS AT ARLINGTON.
The funeral of Mrs. John Valentine
Klemann, wife of Commander J. V.
Klemann, U. 8. N., who died at Brook
line, Mass., on Wednesday, was held
from her late home, the Westmor
land, this morning. A requiem high
mass was said at St. Patrick's Church
at 10 o'clock. Interment was at
Arlington National Cemetery.
FOOLS AND FOOL8.
The One The only way to convince
a fool Is to let him have his own way.
The Other Huh! I know fools that
even that won't convince. Exchange.
"SAVE BABY" APPEAL
TO TAG PURCHASERS
Rome for Foundlings Seeks Aid
Through Girl Vendors.
Scores of pretty grlls Invaded down
town Washington today and sold tags
in the form of national shields "to
save a baby.
It was the first tag day of the
Washington Home for Foundlings,
through which the board of lady vis
itors hopes to obtain sufficient funds
to maintain the home for the rest of
the year. Heretofore the Institution
has depended on teas, card parties,
and similar entertainments to raise
funds, but this year found It In such
desperate financial straits that It was
obliged to resort to the sale of tags.
Despite the fact that this was the
third tag day In Washington In eight
days, people bought liberally, and the
fair venders hope to raise a consider
able sum before night
It had been hoped to bring a. num
ber of babies Into town from their
summer home, and take them through
thestreets in be streamered automo
biles, to show the public what It Is
buying tags for. but Major Pullman
refused to Issue permits for them to
park.
Teams, each In charge of a member
of the board of lady visitors, are
stationed at principal business point
in the shopping district, and there Is
keen competition between the teaemi
for first honors.

MEAT CHEAP IN BRAZIL
Beef and Veal Sold at Low ai 7
Cents a Pound.
RIO DE JANEIRO (by mall). May
9. Brazil's meat market has not yet
been stampeded by the high cost of
llvlnr doubtless because there are
about twice aa many cattle in the
country as people. The last bovine
census placed the figure at 60,000,000
bead.
Despite the advice of health au
thorities who prescribe a light meat
diet during the hot weather, Brazil
ians eat approximately their own
weight In flesh, fish, and fowl an
nually. And hot weather is Brazil's
eternal portion.
To feed the aggregate stomach of
Rio da Janeiro during 1916 it re
quired 105,000,000 pounda of beef,
2.500,000 pounds of veal. 5.700.000
pounds of pork, and 400,000 pounds of
mutton, to say nothing of a dally por
tion of about sixty tons of fish, and
equal weight of dried beef, 30,000
pounds of poultry and a liberal
amount of goat flesh and wild game.
Brazilians probably are great meat
eaters becauie.TelatiTSly, meat ts)
the cheapest thlnr ts eat. Pries
fluctuated In 1918 between 7 and It
cents a pound for beef, T and IS cents
for veal, and 13 and 3 cents for pork.
