TERMINAL VIES WITH TRAINMEN IN "SMOKES'" AID Not to be outdone by the train en ploes who work through the Wash ington Terminal as a part of their "run," clerical worKers or me Dig railroad station today boosted the Washington Times Tobacco Fund by a substantial subscription. Scores of trainmen on railroads leading, to the Capital made a rouna romn contriDU tlon to the fund and the clerical em ployes of the station were quick to emulate their example. Included among the employes who gave generously to the fund that will provide thousands of smokes for American soldiers In France, are the telephone and telegraph operators and clerks, employes of the car depart ment and clerks and other workers In the office of the engine dispatcher. Second R. R. Men's. Boost. This Is the second substantial boost to The Washington JTimts Tobacco Fund that has come from railroad sources within a week. It now bo- hooves the employes of other divisions of the roads entering Washington to come forward with their "bit" to add to the fund. Workers on trains and In terminal stations get to know the American soldier as the public seldom does. The enlisted man travels a lot. during war times and he confides his wishes and hopes to the guardians who protect the welfare of the traveler on the nation's commercial arteries. It vu only natural that a move ment having as Its object the well being of the American soldier should appeal strongly to railroad workers, but The Washington Times Fund ap peals to all classes for earnest sup port. The American soldier in France Is there to fight for the welfare of every American citizen over here, and those who can make his load lighter should lose no opportunity to do so.

Full names pf the persons about whom the stories were told by Mr. Dolph are withheld, for obvious reasons. Here are the narratives: The Story of Lena. Lena was a young girl la a West ern city who had become infatuated with the policeman on the "beat." In spite of the fact that he had a wife and child, ha persuaded Jier to leave her parents'.home and come with him to Washington. There ha secured a position and supported her for four years.

Lena, not hearing from him for two months, wrote to the marine headquarters and stated that she was in need of assistance in caring tor her children. The applica tion was Immediately referred to the home service office. In the course of Investigation, let ters were written to the home town, asking the worker there to see the man's parents and get their advice. We learned of his lawful wife and child, who were living with them, and also that the parents xf Lena lived In the same city. The mother was wearing mourning for the daugh ter she believed dead. In the meantime, through the War Department, an" allotment of the man's pay had .been made to Lena and her children. After communicating with Lena's parents several times, the father's heart softened and he and his wife came to Washington to see Lena, with the result that he took her and the children back home With him.

WALTOt UUKU, 1,13 II St. N.W. Home Service Section of the District today related two stories 6f the less' The Story of Gretchen. When the mother of Gretchen ap plied to the Home Service Office for relief for her' daughter, she did not realise that the trouble was deeper than a financial one. Unfortunately the family, which was an educated and refined one, had a poor mental Inheritance. When Oretchen's hus band enlisted In the naw aa her I years of age, and the youngest a baby or ten months, toe wnoie situation was too much for her and her mind became unbalanced. From a careful housekeeper and a loving mother, rh became neglectful of her children and the household. Medical advice was Immediately sought for her. but It was not until she was examined, by three specialists that she was found to be in a condi tion that rendered her unsafe to be at home. Hospital care was secured for her and a caretaker provided for the children. During a furlough the husband was seen by the home service "worker, and, was brought to a 'sense of bis re-i ssonslblllty toward his family, and he. has made an 'allotment of his pay. I Only last week the worker received! a letter from his thanking her for! let him know regularly about the af fairs at home. i The happy part of 'this story is that' Gretchen Is now at home entirely re covered, caring for her ownchlldren.

Easy Terms. The Riverdale Park Company, Riverdale, Md. 1L SEEKS TO FREE HER FIANCE H PHILADELPHIA, Pa Oct. 2a By means of a writ of habeas corpus. Miss Rose Muchnlck seeks to free her flande. Jacob Tecosky. a Russian, from service In the national army. She has begun proceedings for this purpose In the United States District Court here. The suit revives the troublesome question of the right of the military authorities to draft Into the national army aliens who have not declared their Intentions to become American citizens. Tecoskey Is at Camp Meade, local board No. 13 having refused his claim for exemption and certifying him for service. The proceeding is'an effort to have the court revtow and overrule the de cisions of local draft boards in certify ing aliens for serive. The basis for the appeal in Tecosky's case is some what different from the contentions raised In alien cases recently decided by Judge Dickinson, of the Federal court. In her petition Miss Muchnlck states Tecosky has never filed papers declar ing his Intention to become an Amer ican citizen, and that under the selec tive draft law be Is exempt from mili tary -service. Her fiance, she says, complied with all the requirements of the act, filed his affidavits showing that he Is an alien, but In splta of this the local board rejected his claim for exemption and cerlfled him for serv ice. The local board's decision was af firmed by District Board No. 2, and Tecosky was taken with, his quota to Camp Meade last Friday. Tecosky, although he has been in this country seven years, has not filed papers for citizenship. 10IVI DRAFT DUTY w - Hies, narawuuu uuuu, not- w I Balance Monthly water heat and 100-foot- g 1 Including All Interest deep lots. f S I w i314FST.N.W.or7&ndHSTS.NX 7 ii WE HAVE FOR SALE One two-story 8-room house in northwest; all modern im provements; hot-water heat; with yard large enough for garage, garden and chicken run.

Although the supply of turkeys la less than a year go, the price of Thanksgiving turkeys should be a few cents less a pound than In 1916. wholesale dealers declared here today, explaining that the demand is not going to be so great. "The demand will be proportionate ly less than the supply," said the dealers, "and the price should, be slightly lower than a year ago." And lt'a all on account of the war and Food Administrator Hoover's pleas to "conserve food and help overthrow the Kaiser," It was said. "It's like thlsr" one dealer ex plained, "the American housewife is being taught to oubstltute.'cheaper foods for dearer foods. Thousands of families who in 1916 had turkey for Thanksgiving dinner will thla year eat some less expensive meat. The American housewife has learn ed to feed her family just as well on substitutes.' If turkey tradition Is too strong, and the housewife forgets to sub stitute, turkey will bo higher. Turkeys were selling here at IS cents a pound with likelihood of go ing to 23 cents by Thanksgiving, somewhat less than the 1918 pries, dealers said. GERMAN'S ESTATE AIDS LOAN. PHILADELPHIA. Oct. 20.
