Everybody In Congress who has been "over there" has something fine to say about Admiral Sims. Only they don't often use the Word "ad miral" In speaking of him. It's Just "Sims," the plain, blunt, drect sailor man of action. It appears that Sims and the navy have not only won golden opinions from the British, but they have cap tured the hearts of the solons who have seen something of their work and learned a jcood deal more. Not much secret has been made in conferences between members of Congress who have been abroad and such prominent British naval officials as Sir Eric Geddes, of Just what Is happening In the allied naval world. Admiral Sims has also spoken with frankness to Congressmen about phases of the work of hunting down submarines. Some of the things told, it Is Just as well not to print. TT.Ttnat T)fat4. M In a general way. however, the members of the House who have lately been .on the other side have come home convinced the German submarine has seen its best days. It would not be correct to say It has been conquered, but Congressmen have been Informed In detail of the measures taken to combat the sub marines, the success achieved, the plans for the future, and so on. and they have come to believe that from now on the U-boat will go down hill and the allied shipping will steadily expand. "They have got the subs beaten." ald one member of Congress today. "There will be submarine attacks, of course. We will have some raiding on this side. But the worst is over. The British navy and the American navy have been" doing great work In hunting down subs. They haven't made much noise about It, but they've sunk & lot of them. Sims and our fellows have made a splendid record. AMUSEMENTS FILM FEATURES ICaTIED l"t Tlra Shown TODAY liEfUbI AND ALU WEEK VIRGINIA PEARSON IN "THE LIAR." AIM a nw Eorshln Comedr.

Geddes Lsnds Sims. "Our party talked with Sir Eric Geddes for an hour. He spoke In the highest terms of Sims and the Ameri can navy." Not enly the work of the navy In hunting submarines but the effici ency of the convoy system is meet ing praise. "I take off my hat to the navy," said one House member. "The sys tern of protection for transports is wonderful. The way in which the destroyers swarm about the trans ports all the way across the Atlantic and hover about and guard them diy and night is amazing. The officers and men on the destroyers are using both their heads and their guns. They simply will not permit a transport to take any chance. And that, of course, is as It should be. I saw a. transport at Southmpton about to cross the channel- held up for twenty- four hours and not permitted to go be cause there was soma reason to ap prehend submarines. Other vessels were allowed to go, but not a trans port. No hazards are being taken with them either crossing the Atlantic or the channel." FOE ENVOY SEES ALFONSO MADRID. Aug. 26. The German ambassador today was received by King Alfonso at the Santander sum mer palace In a conference on the U-boat controversy between Germany and Spain. Officials believe that the German government exjects the negotiations now in progr'escneeraIng safejeon ducts, to evolve-some way in which to limit the difficulties of Spanish trade outside of. lie prohibited area. It is not believed that the German ambassador has the authority to guarantee an exceptional treatment in favor of Spain within the prohibit ed area. STEEL CO. PAID $15,000;000.

BUSINESS MEN TOAID GOVERNMENT (tontlnaed from First Pare.) The local community labor board, on recelrlnff Instructions to dirert un skilled labor wherever possible, made the mistake of officially creat ine: a "non-essential" list. 'The wording- should hare been different, for high Government officials bwe banned the hyphenated word entire ly. Nevertheless the list remains about the same as when made up by the board, except that It Is no nameless. Also there are no threats aa to what may happen If employers ran to co-operate. The local board frankly admits that It has no power of enforcing Its decisions as to what an employer may or may not do when asked to part with men now under him, but the statements made by each em ployer are being recorded, it is stated, and should any serious fric tion arise the records will be trans mitted to -higher authorities." Bnslnrsa Km Patriotic There is a splendid tribute to American business men In the fact that they bare never given much thought to "what could be done to them" if they failed to co-operate with business agencies of the Gov ernment in industrial matters. They have promptly co-operated. If the Government thought a thing should be done, that was sufficient to them. Serious though the overturning might be they have adjusted themselves. "There has been no spirit of an tagonism from a single business man wbp has talked with us," said Mr. Kline today. "We are appealing to employers to go as far as possible In releasing unskilled men, and we be lieve they are going to do It without any thought of conflict. We are let ting them know that there is dire need of labor in war work field and they understand." Business men who have conferred vlth (he bosrd are making clear the kind of work they are doing, number of men employed, the possibility of replacing these with women or boys. and other facts. Employers who do not set In touch -with the board in a reasonable time will be visited by examiners, and the nature of their business inquired Into Men released by employers are ex pected to report to the Employment Service Bureau at 1410 Pennsylvania avenue. Policies Sympathetic. The board does not propose to be ruthless or unsympathetic In Its policies, it was asserted today, has no desire to cripple established In dustry; will give an attentive ear to the claim's of business men, but in sists that every Industry earnestly endeavor to release eery unskilled workman whose services csn be dis pensed with or nbose place csn be filled The program Is still In tentative shape, no definite decisions having been announced It will be difficult to apply any set rules. It is stated Two men in Identically the same business may be handled differently. One man may not be able to give up any of his help, while the other may. It's a pretty delicate Job this board has, and the fact that it la showing an understanding of the difficulties Washington business men are under was today reassuring to the latter.

T EVA ROY MYSTERY IS STILL UNSOLVED AFTER 20 DAYS Twenty days hare elapsed since fourteen-year-old Eva Itoy was as saulted and murdered near Burke Sta tion. Va. and the Fairfax county au thorities are little nearer a complete solution of the mystery than they were twenty-four hours after the body was found tied to a tree in the woods. Prlrate detectives and officials con ducting investigations are centering their attention on Lou Hall, who is In the Fairfax county jail as a sus pect, and on a deserting soldier at Camp Humphreys, ten miles from the scene of the crime. While the Commonwealth ha a case against Hall, baaed on circumstantial evidence, inquiry Is also being made to the movement of the soldier. who deserted on the day prior to the murder and turned up at Charlottes ville, Va, four day afterward.

Mr. Ford today admitted taht the shirt which Hall claims to have worn on the day the crime was committed may pUy an important part In the case. Chemists at Washington have completed their analysis of stains found on the shirt and a report has been made. The authorities are not prepared to announce whether the stains were blood. Hall claims the stains were made by snuff, of which ho was a user. A new Elenoesrt. A new element has entered the caoo against HalL He has admitted that he knew that the old Hanse house, near the spring and tree where the body of the girl was found, was shortly to be occupied. Only a few days before the crime. Hall had personally taken a man by the name of Daniels to look at the house, the latter with a view to rent ing It. A deal was made with the owner, and Hall saw Daniels moving a wagon load of tools and farm Im plements into the house a day or two prior to the killing. The Commonwealth may hold that the slayer of Era Roy moved the body from the spot where the girl was killed to a tree deeper Into the woods to keep it from being seen by those who were shortly to live In the Hanse house. The spot where the struggle between the girl and her slayer took place Is easily seen from the Hanse house. Daniels postponed removing to the house after the killing of Eva Ttoy almost in the front yard of the place. ORLANDO IS AT FRONT ROME. Aug. 28 Premier Orlando ha gone to the war zone.

ATHLETE DIES HERO'S DEATH Caught In a German barrage while raiding on the British front in France, Roger Hlllis, captain of George Wash ington University football team of hit, and private In Company C, Twenty-ninth battalion, Canadian In tantry, was killed when a machine gun bullet entered his heart, accord ing to a letter from Lieut Thomas SUUIvan. V. S. A coach of Oeorm Washington University football team in iv in. Prof. DeWitt a Croissant, chair- man ot .me student Activities Com mlttee of George Washington Uni versity, Is the recipient of the letter, written by Lieutenant Sullivan from Camp Merrltt, New Jersey where Sullivan Is stationed after being wounded in France. Hlllis, who was one of the most popular students In the university, and member of the football, basket ball, and baseball teams for two years, attempted to enlist In the American army immediately after the close of the 1917 football season, but was rejected. Determined to get In a blow at the Hun the went to Can ada and enlisted. The missive telling of the death of Hlllis follows: "A few day ago I received a lat ter from Prlrate Matthews, telling of the death of Roger Hlllis. He was a member of C Company, Twenty-ninth Battalion, Canadian Infantry. "It was on a volunteer trench raid they were waiting In a small shell hole for the lifting of the German barrage when a Heine machine gun bullet caught him through the heart. He. died almost immediately. "Hlllis was one of the finest ath letes I have worked with, and he stood for all things, good, clean, and honorable. Ueonre Washington Uni versity will mourn the loss of her adopted son. Sincerely, Tom." A gold service star has been placed In the service flag of the Sigma Nu fraternity, of which Hilll waa a member while attending George Washington University. TO WAR ON LIVING COST Co-operation between producer and consumer as a working basis for re ducing the cost of living In Washing ton Is the theme of the convention of the Federal Board of Farm Organiza tions which begins tomorrow at the Hotel Ebbltt. If the consumer would orxanlse as the farmer has organized, according to R. D. Cooper, president of the Dairymen's League in New Tork State and vice president of the Na tional Milk Producers' Federation, the problem would be much easier. The Co-operative Milk Producers' Marketing Association markets a car load of milk a day In Washington. The great milk problems, according to Mr. Cooper, are the scarcity of la bor, the rising coat of milk produc tion In winter time, and the haste with which the product must be marketed.
