Fleet Cor poration Is to "be moved bodily from Washington to Philadelphia, where Charles U. Schwab Is to ake bis headquarters. . This means Jhe removal from Waah'lngtdd of nearly 100 employes lit every branch of the Fleet Cor poration, -with the exception of the administration offices, which are to stay here. Though no accurate figures can be obtained, it Is estimated that more than half the employes are wash' Ingtonlans, and that leas than half are war workers who came here from other cities to accept employment. 3fany to Stay Here. Many of them declared they will not leave Washington. With' the great demand for workers here, par ticularly for stenographers and type writers, fleet corporation employes easily can find other employment here. Aa a consequence, the organi sation will be. spilt. Hundreds of young girls oa the Seet corporation rolls are from Washington families, and there Is little doubt that they will resign rather than go to Phila delphia. .

Thousands of addi tional workers of every kind must be brought here before January 1. The taking of the 1920 census will mean employment of upward of 2,000 clerks. The War and Navy Depart ments, the Department of Labor and other offices are tn need ot additional help, and many thousands of em ployes must be brought here lo the next few months. One effect of the moving, however, will be to bring some measure of re lief In the office space situation. The Emergency Fleet Corporation has of fices In twenty large and small office buildings, all rented quarters. These will be available for other uses when the fleet corporation gets out.

The moving of the fleet corpora tion, with Its employes and their households, with all of Its office fur nlture. records, and equipment, will be one of the biggest tasks of Its kind.
