NEED $100,000 FOR FLEET RECEPTION Finance Committee Urges Con tributions, Pointing Out\Ad= vantages to City Big Hall Planned, With Booths for Convenience of Thou* sands of Visitors While the great Atlantic fleet is \u25a0teaming toward the Golden gate to irtve San Francisco its first fete since the fire, the reception committee Is hav ing difficulty' in collecting the money necessary to give an adequate recep tion to the 24,000 officers and men who will have their first extended shore leave at this port. One hundred thou sand dollars is required toy provide the hospitality and to maintain the city's . reputation for freeheartedness. It ts not the plan of the committee to give the sailors a paternal recep tion or to provide apron strings to which sailors may be attached, or to engage ch^perones to guide the blue- Jackets in the pursuit of pleasure. On the contrary the committee aims at a plan of hospitality which will make it easier for the men from _ behind the guns to get about the city. The committee will build a commodi ous and decorative embarcadero at the landing for the launches of the war ships, and will maintain there a recep tion elation for the sailors. At this place always will be found persons familiar with the city, who can greet the Bailormen as tl\ey land and. give them accurate information regarding the city and its places of amusement : and Interest A hall with a capacity for 5,000 also | Is to be t built if funds are forthcoming. ' This hall will be the scene of the re ceptions for the sailors and of the ban quets and entertainments planned.- Realizing that many strangers will come to San Francisco during the stay of the fleet the committee also- plans to establish information bureaus where visitors may obtain information regard ing lodging places, hotels and boarding houses. One of these places is to be established at the ferry, another at the Southern Pacific depot. Third and Townsend streets, and the main bureau will be located in the California build ing. Union square. It will take consid erable money to maintain a staff of at tendents at these booths. The finance committee fears that the public does not realize the great ad vantage the coming of the fleet wUI be .to San Francisco. The committee, consisting*-of A. A. Watkins, George A. Xewhall. Phil :N. Lilienthal, W. C. Ralston, James D. Phelan * and Allan Pollok, is embarrassed now from lack of funds, but hopes for better days. LET JACKIES ALONE Former Officer in Navy Advises Reception Committee Captain Thomas Lawless of the Oceanic 6teamship company was once a bluejacket in the United States navy and he has some advice about enter taining the men of Admiral Evans' fleet that should be useful "to the en tertainment committee. Lawless earned a commission before he left the navy and his standing in the merchant marine is high, but his later promotions dimmed nothing, of his re gard for the service, and nobody in dril life is more competent to speak for the man behind the gun. ; "Jack," said Captain Lawless, "is er ratic to the last degree. When he goes ashore he wants to "wander as the spirit prompts him. At 3 p. m. you may find him in Maggie's saloon on the Earbary coast and at 3:45 gazing with reverential awe at the stained glass windows of the Episcopal cathe dral. If they try the personally con ducted, previously planned system of entertainment on Jack they will only make him unhappy. "All the committee needs to provide Is a hall at some easily reached center \u25a0which the liberty men may use as a meeting place. Give the sailor a- point of departure. He'll lay his own course. "If. the committee feels that it must do something In the catering line it might provide coffee at. this hall. But nothing else. Jack Is well fed aboard chip and prefers to pay his way ashore. It might be a good idea to have sta tioned at this hall a doctor who could make temporary repairs on the dis abled. "I would also suggest that the com mittee ask for a provo guard composed of a bluejacket detail from each ship «»ach day to Insure order at the hall. A. bluejacket, mind you. not- a marine. If the committee does these things the bluejackets will do . the rest and will have a much better time than the committee, with the best of Intentions, could provide. "If the committee wants to do more, trips to; Lake Tahoe, Tamalpais and other points of Interest might be ar ranged for such of the men as the executive officer of each ship may des ignate. "Social entertainment . Is not neces sary. Jack •will find that In his own •way. Take Jack to a pink tea and you provide his shipmates with ammunition for months of, pitiless Joshing. . . "In making Jack welcome to San Francisco the people should bear In mind that the bluejacket is just a little different from anybody ' else. His life; is governed by strict rules, and he is only thoroughly at ease when with, those who understandVand appreciate i the conditions. Don't feel hurt if the i bluejackets are not enthusiastic mixers: In civilian frolics. It Is not because 1 Jack dislikes civilians, but because he feels more at home with his shlp , mates, v .

ARMY MEETS / NAVY Funston Pays Official Call to Sebree Squadron General Frederick . Funston . paid an official call yesterday afternoon upon Admiral Uriel Sebree, commander of the squadron now In the .harbor. General Funston was accompanied by Colonel J. TV. Duncan, chief of staff,, and his aid, Lieutenant Hornsby Evans. The party went. from Fort Mason on the.govern ment launch Smead. The army contingent was in full dress uniform. They boarded the cruiser Tennessee, Admiral Sebree's flagship, shortly after 2 o'clock.' TVhile the visit was of a formal nature the meeting be tween the two commanding officers was informal." General Funston was met at the head of the gangway by Admiral Sebree, and arm in- arm the representa tives -of the : army and navy marched between a line of bluejackets to the admiral's quarters. ' Admiral Sebree and General Funston are old friends, and ' a pleasant «; hour was spent, during which time-the-of ficers of the ship were introduced to the army men. As General Funston .left the Tennessee salute of 11; guns was fired in his honor. \u25a0 - •: .-• SAILORS HAVEHOLIDAY Thousand Men From Squadron Come Ashore to See City: "With four months-p ay jingling in their, pocket* and their hearts as light as the, foam that caps \th&/; billowy waves, 1,000 of Uncle Sam's sailors from the cruisers Tennessee and, Was hington roamed the streets yesterday on pleasure bent.

Among the numbers of the program were "Songs of All Nation's,'' typical, of the' cosmo politan character of the force, and the overture of "Tannhauser,*" introducing? the theme of the "Evening Star,"-sym bolic of<,*the twinkling device on the coat of the night watch. The musical program concluded with Miss Mac Tu nison's' splendid singing of "The Star Spangled Banner." In the midst of the patriotic air a panel 'of draped flags at the' end of the pavilion-parted,-disclos ing the full length portrait of "Wash ington.' This decoration fitted admir ably \u25a0 with the patriotic scheme >in \u25a0 the pavilion, which was graced with stands of flags at every pilaster. Overhead ' the electric lights were set in the, form of stars, and in the center was a great star/including in its center the 'na tional flag. , .
