Intense Heat Makes Life Miserable at Capital
WASHINGTON — Washington sweats That is the abiding impression one
carries away Under the enormous and stupefying pressure of war the
Moist and hot the close heavy sky
bends down over Washington and the
great sun burns vaguely through light
mist The city steams its heavy air
full of the sickly sweet odor of lo-
custs you are drenched with perspira-
tion — even clothes hanging In your
room get damp
Occasionally great clouds ride up
over the horizon black as Ink breast-
ing the wind night swoops over the
town and storm and solid sheets of
rain Then sun again breathless air
wet heat Still fate hammers swift
and henvily forging history So fast are events moving and with such ur-
gency that never in Washington’s history was so much work being done at
such high pressure
Great capitalists and manufacturers run around from office to office In
their shirt sleeves enthusiastic as boys Thwarted puzzled-looking con-
gressmen go angrily along muttering to themselves with their constituents
following What kind of government institution Is this — without congres-
sional patronage?
The Willard the Shoreham the Raleigh look like the Hotel Astoria in
Petrograd during the war The same military men in American Russian
Belgian French English uniforms — the same gentlemen with something to
sell to the government

Statesman Resents Insult to Nation’s Uniform
WAR clouds hung low and threateningly over the dining room at the Wash-
ington Union station at the dinner hour The firm diplomacy of Repre-
sentative J B Aswell of Louisiana however which met quick and favorable
response from the management saved
the situation Mr Aswell with a
party of friends in the restaurant saw
waiter order from the dining room a
boy not more than eighteen years old
who was wearing the uniform of a
United States seaman
The boy had entered the dining
room by the main entrance Jle de-
posited his suitense by the side of a
table and sat down
The waiter approached him quick-
ly and said: "The lunch counter is In
the room beyond” The boy rose picked up his suitcase and walked Into the
next room ne was embarrassed
Mr Aswell called the head waiter Then he called all the waiters in the
room He demanded apologies from the waiter and from the head waiter
and the latter he sent scurrying after the sailor with an invitation to return
and be served
“And serve him In proper style” shouted Mr Aswell “Give him every-
thing he wants and then give me the bill”
The boy was a recruit He was on his way to join his ship “somewhere
on the Atlantic” He had only a few minutes to catch his train he said and
had merely dropped in for a cup of coffee He politely declined the invita-
tion of Mr Aswell to be his guest at dinner
“Lookee here” said the Louisiana member to the waiter "don’t you ever
do that again You caused me to lose my temper for the first time in four
years”
The waiter promised he never again would permit himself to be caught
doing anything that could be construed as a reflection upon the uniform of
the navy or the army
Fault of the Light
James had been playing late and
was just about to wash his hands as
he was required to do before coming
to the table when he saw his father
filling his plate and as he was par-
ticularly hungry He looked at his
hands dubiously and decided they
might pass muster so he took his
place determined to run the risk of
banishment
Ills sister Mary observed the omis-
sion almost at once and said: “Why
James look at your hands ! They’re
not clean”
“Oh yes they are Mary” he replied
He considered them a moment "If
they look dirty It’s Just the way the
light strikes them on this white tablecloth”
As He Heard It
Little Raymond returned home from
Sunday school In a very joyous mood
“Oh mother” he exclaimed as he
entered the house “the superintendent
said something awfully nice about me
In Ids prayer this morning!”
“Isn’t that lovely! What did he say
pet?” questioned his mother
“lie said ‘Oh Lord we thank thee
for food and Raymond’ ” — Harper’s

Arts Club Stirring Things Up at Washington
THE Biblical Injunction to “go to the ant thou sluggard consider his ways
and be wise” has been improved on by Elise DuFour Interpretive dancer j
who in a brief talk to the Arts club advised her auditors also to consider the
ways of the cat the caterpillar the
frog the bean and the birds
“All the world is rhythmic except
man” said Miss DuFour “He alone
Is out of harmony and the rhythmic
dance is the way to put him in tune
We should go to the cat to learn to
loosen tha bones of the spine to the
caterpillar to learn to curl up and un
curl from the center to the frog to
learn the-proper articulation of the
leg
“We should go to the bear to
learn from his easy lope the proper articulation of the hip Joints From the
birds we may learn the flying rhythm and one sings ns one flies There are
many animal rhythms that we might study with much profit”
Miss DuFour was one of three speakers at the Arts club lawn party the
others being Ossip Peraima Russian portrait painter and Edwin Callow
singer
The talk of Mr reralma contained as much patriotism as art and he
made frequent reference to the bonds of fellowship uniting this country and
the new Russia
“This Arts club is a wonderful cradle of progress” snid the Russinn “for
it is a pioneer movement In Washington which has become the capital cf
capitals Washington Is the great Ideal which stands for liberation of op-
pressed peoples America has gone Into the war to help humanity to see
that these great Ideals do not perish”

A BIG TOURING CAR FOR FIVE PEOPLE
259 Miles
Per Gal of Gas
234 stock model Saxon “Sixes” travel 70200 miles July
18 and set grand average of 259 miles per gal of gas
To give a national demonstration
of the remarkable gasoline econ-
omy of Saxon “Six” 234 Saxon
dealers joined in a 300 mile drive
July 18
A grand average of 259 miles per gal-
lon of gasoline was registered for the
70200 miles of travel
Consider that this run took place In 234
different parts of the country under 234
different sets of conditions over 234 dif-
ferent kinds of roads
Consider that these 234 cars were stock
model Saxon “ Sixes ” not “ tuned up ”
special cars not cars with “doped”
gasoline
That proves that this 259 miles per
gallon of gasoline is the ordinary the
average performance of 234 Saxon
“Sixes” taken right out of stock
And it proves as nothing else would
prove the gasoline economy your Saxon
“Six” will give you No other car in
its class can match this record
Furthermore these 234 Saxon “Sixes”
averaged 175 miles per quart of oil
And not a single instance of mechanical
trouble occurred throughout the entire
70200 miles
There is the proof that Saxon “Six” is
your kind of a car Price f o b Detroit
