TO VISIT EUROPE Between now and the opening of the extra session, which, it Is gener ally expected, will begin in May or early June, a number of Senators and House members hope to visit' Europe and obtain first-band Ideas about conditions. Just who will go is not yet settled, as members cannot make plans until they know with some deflnlteness what is to be the program with re spect to calling the new Congress together. The fact that members are plan ning to go abroad to get a near view of things means that the extra ses sion of Congress is going to take on added interest. One of the subjects which will bo pretty well explored by any that go over will be the real feeling in France and England and elsewhere about the League of Na tions. Conditions in the army wil also be examined Into. The result Will be that when the extra session opens, if present plans are carried out, there will be men in both branches of Congress who will have up-to-date advices on European con ditions and Vill not be dependent on what Alters through from official sources.

What form the proposed memorial to American soldiers shall take is to day still an unsettled question In Washington. Col. Robert N. Harper, advocate of tho plan for an arch of triumph, and Mrs. Henry F. Dfmock, sponsor for the George Washington memorial, to commemorate both the boys of '76 and those of the world war, were heard in an interesting debate last night at the War Camp Community Service Hall, 912 Tenth street north west. Colonel Harper warmly defended his plan for the proposed memorial arch, declaring the country does not want to see an institution erected in memory of Its heroes which may later take on the aspects of a com mercial building. Mrs. DImock, whose plan of a George Washington memorial, contemplates the erection of a museum and library in connec tion with memorial pillars, was ear nest in the argument that this is th time to erect a suitable memorial to George Washington, to the heroes of the revolutionary war and to the men who fought against Germany. "I do not want to see the erection of the George Washington memorial consummated by linking It with thd sympathy attaching to the boys of 1917," asserted Colonel Harper. "This proposition has been so far a failure, and we don't want a com mercial memorial to be pulled through by the sentiment existing to day for a monument to commemorate the deeds of our boys in France. "We built the Washington monu ment In commemoration of the free dom of a nation; we built the Lin coln Memorial to commemorate tha. freedom of a people, and now we should build an arch of triumph to commemorate the freedom of the world. These other structures were Lieut. .CoL Evan E. Lewis, of Wash ington, Is cited by General Pershing today In orders released from the War Department for extraordinary heroism in action near Beaumont, France, on November 6, and he has ' been given a bar to be worn on his distinguished service cross ribbon, 'Which he was awarded for bravery 1 near Marcheville, France, on Septem ber 26. This la equal to a second I cross. i Colonel Lewis, who lived with his wife at West Wardman Courts, has been promoted from his majority since he was first cited. He is in the 102d Infantry, a part of the famous Yankee Division (Twenty-sixth), which fought so hard for victory in the Argonne forest. Colonel Lewis has been overseas since January, 1017, and fought at Chateau Thierry where he was gassed on July 22. He now wears two gold service stripes and one gold wound stripe. Lewis was first cited for display ing gTeat bravery and raro initiative when being' second In command of assaulting troops, he reorganized scattered units under terrific artil lery and machine gun fire. He also established and organized positions in depth, set up liaison from front to rear, and in hand-to-hand fighting personally led his men, inspiring' in them a confidence and tenacity of purpose which were productive of success. The seond citation reads: Lieut. Col. Lewis commanding his regiment, personally led his men in advance of his front line under heavy artillery and machine gun fire and gained the absolute confidence of nl troops by his example of courage and cool ness. Lewis graduated from West Point in 1007 and saw service in the Philip pines and Mexico.

POLICE HARD AFTER RECKLESS DRYERS NEW YORK, March 3. No spoiled wheat has been sent to Belgium and "the man that stated that bad wheat had been sent into Belgium and poisoned the Belgians Is not only a' liar, but a conscious liar," William B. Poland, director of Belgian relief, said in a statement here. Believing- that the number of traffic accidents can be reduced by tho con stant enforcement of the traffic reg ulations and the arrest of all persons violating them. Major Raymond 'W. Pullman, superintendent of police. In a bulletin to the members of his com mand today ordered the police to ar rest the speeding- and reckless automo bile drivers. "The police are aljer the reckless driver," Major Pullman said. he la the public's enemy. The police can check accidents only by the constant enforcement of the traffic regulations and promptly arresting- reckless driv ers. Tne apprenension of more than two to four score speed maniacs dur ing each day shows that in spite of all that has been said In the street safety campaign, there are many thoughtless people who persist In en dangering their lives as well as others' in reckless driving-. The two colored men were slightly Injured early today, when the auto mobile in which they were riding overturned at Forty-first and Daven port streets northwest. The men are Hugh Wilson, of 204 F street north west and George Harris, a soldier stationed at Camp Leach. Wilson, who was driving the car, the police say, lost control of the ma chine, causing1 It to overturn. Both men were pinned under the machine. They refused hospital treatment and were able to go to their homes un assisted. The automobile of Senator John B. Kendrlck of Wyoming was slightly damaged last night, when it collided at New Hampshire avenue and O street northwest with an automobile operated by Frank D. Roach, of 3400 Ninth street northeast. Losing- control of his automobile near Fourteenth and Harvard streets northwest last night, the machine of H. W. Elmore, 712 Sixth street north west, crashed into the front porch of the residence of William P. Richards, assessor for the District, of 1457 Har vard street northwest.

Swift & Company prove that out of every dollar the retailer pays to the packers for meat, 2 cents is for packers' profit, 13 cents is for operating expenses, and 85 cents goes to the stock raiser; and that the prices of live stock and meat move up and down .together. The live-stock raiser points to rising costs of raising live stock. Labor reminds us that higher wages must go hand in hand with the new cost of living. No one, apparently, is responsible. No one, apparently, is benefited by higher prices and higher income. . We are all living on a highrpriced scale. One trouble is, that the number of dollars has multiplied faster than the quantity of goods, so that each dollar buys less than formerly. Swift & Company, U. S.
