Co-ordination of all of the various eharitable and welfare organiustions Ln Washington under the direction Df the Board of Public Welfare, com posed of citisens who would serve idtbout compensation, was strongly urged by Vice President Marshall to day at a hearing by the Senate Dis trict Committee. ZRAImNG ON CURTIS DILL. The hearing was on the bill intro Wuoed by Senator Curtis, providing for compulsory school attendance and prohibiting the employment of chil frea under fourteen years of age in any line of industry In the National Capltal. Vice President Marshall said that the National Capital should have a model board of public welfare to be used 'as a guide by all the cities of the country, whereas at present there are a score or more of independent nd unrelated charity and welfare or ganisations frequently overlapping and duplicating each others efforts. Senator Sherman and Senator Shep pard expressed their accord with the views given by Vice President Mar. shall with regard to the necessity for the suggested board. The vice president accompanied his suggestion with a codification of the welfare laws of Massachusetts and Indiana. said by him to have been pronounced by the Interntional Con gress of Charities and Corrections to be the best in the world, and urged that this codification be introduced in the form of a bill to apply to the District of Columbia. His sug gestion in this regard was followed by the committee and. the bill will beintroduced within the next day or two. WOULD CONCENTRATE WORK. "I am a firm believer in the prin iple that the world should be gov orned by law and not by discreti-n." said Vice President Marshall. "I be lieve that the various activities which L government is compelled to arsume should be co-ordinated so as to pre rent duplication of effort and work armoniously toward a common end, hat comon end being the public wel !are. I believe, therefore, in the Dis trict of Colubia these various activi ies should be a branch of a depart ment of public welfare. presided ver by a board of citizens who are I nterested in the public welfaro and I will give their time to furthering it without compensation at the hands of he government. I am quite well 1 iware that this may meet with oppc- I 0tion at the hands of public officials I nd that it must run the gauntlet of I hat strange human nature, which ir- I slts that the thing which is being 4 lone Is the all important maer an' ill ohers are merely secondary and I neidental." Vice President Marshall said that the anner In which insane people are ommitted to asylums Is appalling. le laid these people are sick and should A )e handled as such. but instead they I ire treated as criminals. le charac- i rized the absence of law governing he boarding of the insane as "little short of a crime." le strongly urged he speedy construction of a home for he feeble minded and immediate :reatment for such patients, saying hat 75 per cent of the Insanity in i ashington could thus be prevented. 1 WANTS ORPHANS ADOPTED. The Vice President also stated that here was a crying need for better aws providing for humanitarian reatment for illegitimate children. and for the care of orphans.

In act, Mrs. Walsh so thorr.ughly ap roved it that she i.ts volunteered o finance the expenses of the hoard if public welfare.

RiteO, governor of Maryland. and his staR to the District Line tomorrow morn 1ng, when the Maryland ofdcials and Washington and Baltimore business men begin their trip from Washing ton to Leonardtown, Md., on a trade pilgrimage. From the District Line to Leonardtown. and from Leonard town to the District Line on the re turn trip, the party will be escorted by Maryland State mounted police. ANDRUWS HEADS LOCAL MON. Col. Charles W. Kuts. Engineer Commissioner for the District of Co lumbia will be a member of the party. All three District Commis sioners will welcome the governer and his staff tomorrow morning at the office of the Tidewater Transpor tation Company, 613 G street north west. The start will be made from this point at 9:30 o'clock. The Washington business men will be headed by Ross P. Andrews. chair man of the out of town trade com mittee of the Merchants and Mauu? facturers' Association of this city. Dr. Hugh Smith, of the Federal Bureau of Fisheries, will also accompany the party. "The Washington business men who will make the trip will impress upon the people of Southern Maryland. that Washington. five hours away from trem by motor truck. is the feasible trade center for them," according to Charles J. Columbus, secretary of the Merchants and Manufacturers Assoc iation. "This section of the country pro duced about 75 per cent of all .the oysters tonged in the world, in ad dition to a great variety of other sea food. Using Washington as the cen ter for their trade, the Southern Mary land section is only ten hours away from New York-five hours to Wash ington. and fivehours from Washing ton to New York. The Baltimore business men are getting jealous of the trade which the Washington merchants have built up and are go ing to make a decided effort to divert it to Baltimore. While there is ne feeling against their trying to get the trade, ft is obvious to everyone that Washington is its real center. If Baltimore business men were to get the trade, the routes to Baltimore would in many instances, lead through Washington and then to Baltimore, og if Washington was not touded, it would mean a longer trip through less convenienced roads. GUiS 16s GALLONS A DAY. "Washington now gets about 1.040 gallons of oysters' a day in season from this section. The total output of the section is about 4.000 gallons a day. Washington motor track transportation companies are making arrangements for special trucks to carry the oyster and crab products from this sectier and they will reach New York and other points in a bet ter condition if brought here by truck than by any other means. "Not only the sea food products of that section, but the agricultural products are equally as available, and the time may not be very far off when the tobacco products of south ern Maryland will come to Washing ton. A tobacco industry may develop here that will be one of the factors in the city's commercial life. There is also room for great improvement in truck gardens in this section and an effort will be made by Washington business men to have the people put more interest in this development.
