THE WASHINGTON TTMES.1 MONDAY: APRIL 29? 1918. v -. : K BEELERCERTAINLY A FASCINAT WAY WITH WOMEN Thu mniD went Into the offices of , John A. Beeler. engineer consultant to the Public Utilities Commission, fetllfrerent and determined to make her protest against the "staggered" hours plan of carrying "Washington war workers to their places of em- ployment. I came here." she said, with busi nesslike clarity of expression, "to tell you that I shall refuse to keep board ers any longer If you put Into effect 'that absurd staggered hours Idea. It's the most ridiculous thing I ever heard of. I have twelve boarders. They have breakfast from half-past 7 to half -past 8 o'clock. "If the staggered hours are adopt ed. I shall have to give breakfast to two at 7 o'clock, and I won't stand It. I'll close my Place first. I think It Is unjust to ask us who run board ing places to comply with such a rule. The Government asks every ene to do his bit and wants places whero war workers may live. Declared She'd Quit. T opened my house for that pur pose; never kept boarders before. But I am through If you keep on with your foolish plans." Mrs Becler, who himself Is some mller, listened courteously and then aid to his caller: "Madam, this is a very large task the United States has taken In win ning the war for the allies. Do you realize that the whole issue Is now up to this country; that the Germans will win It we do sot all do our part -Ho plan could be devised that would exactly suit all persons. Some must be discommoded, some more than others. Cannot you accept this situation and co-operate with the rest ot the people cheerfully?" Change Her Sllnd. It Is hard to talk with John A. Beeier and maintain an angry frame of mind. Uls smile disarms. The woman stood, momentarily thinking Then of a sudden. Impulsively, she grasped Mr. Beeler's hand, and ca T never got that thought in relation to this matter. Mr. Bceler. I cuess I was Just thinking of myself, and forgetting the bigger thins the world at war ana the seed for all ot us to help. Tea; I ahall give those clerks their breakfast at seven, or six. If necessary, it won i be much compared with what la being done by the men In the army and navy And she went away, to revise the ink- written meal card that hangs against the wall Is her little hostelry. The clerks who live in her house will get their breakfast whenever It Is necessary. Liberty War Kitchen Lecture and Demonstration Tuesday at 2:30 P. M.

BIddle Introduced the resolution, pointing out that the price recently was increased to II per thousand feet In Maryland, at the same time that the District Public Utilities Commission permitted the Washington Gas Ught Company to Increase Its District rate from 78 to 90 cents per thousand. Before the in crease was granted In the District the rate in Maryland was 85 cents. Gaa on both sides the District line is furnished from the same mains, and actual cost of furnishing gas in Maryland was the same aa In the District,- said BIddle. F.
