Washington An ALL Washington Page for ALL Washington People Secretary Wilson Says It Brings Fatigue and Defends Fed eral Employes. In contradiction to th* charge fre quently heard In the Capitol that gov ernment employe* are "work slack er*," Secretary of Labor W. B. Wll ?on today came forward to the de fenae of the employea and ia*ued or der* to the chief* of bureau* and di vision* of hi* department to discon tinue all overtime work with the ex ception of "emergency ca*e?." Secretary Wll*on declare* that overtime work create* fat gue and "deatroy* morale to the end that It decreaeu* rather than Increases efll clency." JaatlBea C?n?lalaU. Hla position In thi* respect I* re ceived with considerable Interest and regarded as significant. During the war, and even after that period, there has been much overtime work In the Oovernment. Few employes have received credit for such work, ac cording to thalr complaints, although they declared they were willing to do extra work as a patriotic duty. Secretary Wilaon la the flrat Cabl net official to lake act!<?n on thl* overtime work, and hi* statement I* regarded a* significant of the fact that he recognize* the undercurrent of dlssatlifactlon auch work has created and that the employea have been Justified In complaining. Sec retary Wilson's order follow*: "It has been brought to my atten tion that the pressure of work In .some of the bureau* ha* resulted In almost dally overtime work being re l quired of some of the employes. Ob servation of the work of the depart ment has convinced me that while temporary emergencies may be met by working overtime, the continua tion of such overtime over prolonged period* brings about a nervous strain that create* fatlgut and dattroya mo rale, to tha end that It dacraaaaa rather than Increases efficiency. No Mora Nlgkt Work. "It la therefore directed that here after no civil service employe shall be required or permitted to work ^overtime except In cases of emerg ency, In which event the emergency and the need to work overtime to overcome It shall be reported to the Secretary for hi* approval. All per> son* In director positions shall be no tified accordingly." Chief Clerk Gompers, of the Depart ment of Labor, stated that one of the bureaus has been working all day ''Sunday and every night until 11 and 12 o'clock. This bureau win still be compelled to work Sunday, but will not work at night Owing to recent "deportation" ac tivities, the Bureau of Immigration has been compelled to do a great deal of overtime work. CiUMlEON SYMPATHY STRIKE Walkout to Aid Hodcarriers Will Be Considered To night. The strike of more than 2.000 hod carriers and common laborers In Washington will reach a climax to night and tomorrow night, when ac tion by organized labor Is expected to determine whether or not a sym pathy walkout should be called. Tha Issue will be presented tonight at a meeting of the Central Labor Union, an organization of all locals tn this city. This body, it Is forecast, will at least sanction the strike. A more Important meeting will be that of the Building Trades Council tomorrow night.' The council has al ready approved of the new wage scale of the strikers, and it is more closely interested in the situation than any other lsbor organization. The voting of a sympathy strike by the council would result In Imme diately tying up all building activi ties in this city. Both strikers and contractors, with the exception of two or three, were still at odds today as to the reaching of an agreement. Contractors ara awaiting the action which will be taken at the meetings tonight and tomorrow night POUCE ORDERED TO END PROPERTY TRESPASSING ?police today were ordered by Major and Superintendent of Police Harry L. Oossford, to co-operate with citi zens by giving special attention to the promiscuous trespassing upon private lawns and gardens.

"The Police Department must give Its full share of co-operation In the protection of the lawna and shrub bery If the beautlflcatlon of the Na tional Capital I* to be encouraged, and all members are enjoined to do their utmost this year to assist the citizens by giving their attention to the promiscuous trespassing upon private lawns and gardens."

CHURCH WORLD'S HOPE, DECLARES DR. A1TCHIS0N rellB Capital Women Baptiat Cam paign for Big Fund I# Heartily Supported. "The world Is at a crlsla. The eyes of all people are centered on the church. If the church falla un at this time we are bankrupt," declared Dr. J. Y. Altchlson, of New York, di rector of the New World Movement of Northern Baptlata, In, an addreaa be fore tike Baptlat women of the city In the Second Baptlat Church thla afternoon. The occaalon waa the annual meet In* of the Woman'a Baptlat Mission ary Association, attended by repre ?entatlvea of twenty-two local Baptist L'hurcbea and much enthualaam waa manifested for the $100,000,000 cam paign of the Northern Baptlata and the $70,000 000 campaign of the South ern Baptlata. "The aplrlt of the Northern and Southern Baptlata la one," declared Dr. Altchlaon, "and I am J"" as much In the Interest? of the South is of the North." Although the amount of money asked for by the church for lta am bltloua world-sweeping program of ( advancement In education, evangelism and welfare work seema large and the Individual quotas In many cases have been regarded as almost stag gering, nevertheless Dr. Altchlson an nounced that Baptist churches all over the country have come forward with enthusiastic aaauraaoea of co operation. "I know of several Instances, he said, "when church leaders simply dropped everything on receiving word of their local quota. Ohe minister In particular shut himself up for several days to give the matter hla whole at tention. His quota was more than his church ever had thought of rais ing, and he had grave doubts wheth er It could be done, even for the New World Movement. But at tho end of his deliberation, I received a telegram that his church had accept ed Its quota, and was going to raise every cent of It." Following. Dr. Altchlson's address, Mrs. JJames Madison Pratt, of New York, who Is making a speaking tour In the Interests of the New World Movement, outlined home and foreign mission eeds. Government records of the war of Incalculable value, and which would be replaceable. If at a'l, only at tre mendous cost, are stored In temporary buildings of flimsy and Inflammable construction which are subject to de struction by fire at any tine. It was admitted today by the Council of Na tional Defense, which has charge of a portion of the records. It has been suggested that these records be flUd In the basement and sub-basement ?f the proposed Na tional Victory Memorial building, thus preventing the necessity of erecting a special archives building. The suggestion that the vaults of the great National Memorial building be used for certain of the Government war records arose from the fact that It Is Intended, In following out the service star plan of financing the project, to have a service record re lating to virtually every man who served In the national armed forces during the war filed In the archives of the building. As the building Is to be a memorial to the civilian as well as the military side of the national achievement In the world war, It was considered that It would be appropriate to house there also the official records of the contact , between governmental agencies and I the Industrial and com nercial life of j the country during the war. The rec- . irds now In possession of the Council of National Defense sre mainly of I that sort. There are also many other | records of this kind which are not In | the custody of the council which could be Included. Under the service star plan of rals- i In* the money required for the erec tion of the Victory Memorial build Ing. It will represent In every brick, stone or other piece of building mate rial the soldiers of the late war, as contributions are based on the stars of the service flags of the homes business house* Institutions, etc., of the nation. Contributions are not to be solicited from the general public, f- ->rlvllepre being confined to those stood in sonie relst'on to Ihe >rs that authorl*e1 th"m to dis service flaa*.

Along with this there is an abnormal demand for coal throughout the coun try.

Employes Opposed To 70 Year Age Limit For New Pension Law Government employes generally ex pressed disappointment today over the form In which the Hterllng re tirement bill passed ths Senate. and ? concerted effort will be made to have the House kill ttyi Smoot amendment which raises the retire ment ace from sixty-five to seventy years. The high as** IMnlt Is being criti cised from every side. It Is declared that seventy years Is anything but an attractive pension aire to look forward to since It Is far beyond the average span of life. I'ay t'strr Protest. There was every Indication this morning that unless this age limit be reduced the greater percentage of Government employes would pay their assessment under protest. Un der the provisions of the Sterling bill It Is compulsory for each employe to pay Into the retirement fund. Thou sands of employes will do so unwill ingly even should the retirement age be reduced to sixty-five years. The general opinion prevailing In the departments Is that retirement should be regulated according to yeare of eervlce. which is the princi ple employed with practically all of the large corporations. In private con cerns an employe le generally privi leged to draw penelon after thirty years' service. Costal Korea Loses. I'ostal employee are the blggeat losers under the Htnoot amendment By the original bill postal mechanics, city or rural carrlere and poatofflce clerks are eligible to retire at the age of sixty-two years. The age for rail way mall clerks Is sixty. The Smoot provision places all Federal employes on a flat basis of seventy years. The National federation of Federal Employes also voiced objection to the Smoot amendment today, and pro poses to fight it In the House. While the federation does not regard the Sterling bill as a perfect measure, nevertheless satisfaction is expressed over its success in the Senate, since It Is looked upon as the foundation stone for a more perfect pension sya tem. 19TH CASE OF SLEEPING SICKNESS IS REPORTED Man of 67, Stricken in February, Believed Recovering?Smallpox Patients Remain at 32.
