L. Greer with JSOO, including a Kindle sale of 330. Greer Is looked upon as an Im pfHant factor, for he has just been transferred to the busine-s district .Although he has been an ardent bibster of the "baby bonus" In the past, the fact that his efforts were confined to the residential section has net made It possible for him to dis play his real caliber as a salesman to the best advantage. Orislnal W. S. 5. "Barker." Incidentally, Greer is the original Vfj S. S. "barker" of the local post o Jco. He earned this title during the 3 ine drive, when, armed with a mega p tone, he was sent with several f (low-carriers In a postofnee auto c eblle to points along Pennsylvania a rfenue, his picturesque arguments it iuclng many stamp purchases.

H. S. Barry, of the Chevy Chase station, re ported yesterday's sales as $50. while H. E. A. Cutshaw, of station A, turned la cash to the amount of $40. Many of the "regulars" aro now on their leave, among them several who have piled up high figures in the past. However, with unanimity, the substi tutes declare that they are going to jump Into the breach and attempt to exceed the records of the men whose slaoee they took. Several "dark horses" are also known to be In the race, and contestants look forward eagerly to tomorrow, when the first announcement of the standing of the leaders is to be published. I GREGORY ORDERED SLACKER RAIDS Attorney General Gregory has as sumed complete responsibility for the recent slacker raids made In New lork, in a letter to the President. Censure was placed, however, on of ficials of the department who m ployed soldiers and sailors In round ing up the slackers' without Gregory's consent. The letter contains a long state ment of the policy of the Justice De partment in relation to the selactlve service act, and the result ot the dragnet proceedings. The reason for the action of the department was based on the provi sions of the selective service act which empowers police officials to arrest graft evaders. Grerory states that similar raids were made in Boston and Chicago with excellent results and to the en tire satisfaction of the communities affected. The same plan that has been used heretofore In conducting raids will be used In all future roundups, the attorney general states, until orders' for their discontinuances are received from the President. A summary of the report contained In the letter shows that over 50.000 persons were detained by the authori ties in New York and five cities of New Jersey. One thousand three hundred and eleven were Inducted into the mili tary service and nearly 15,000 turned over to their draft boards as delinquents.
