Like in the -civil and Spanish wars,
our men are among the first to ans-
wer the call to the colors. They are
doing some mighty big things at the
capital.
Officials Polite but Careful
"The officials in charge of the offices
are. careful in admitting visitors to
intelview administration officers. Be-
fore I was allowed to enter any build-
ing I had to fill out a card stating my
name, business and whom I wished to
see. Then I was put in charge of an
arderly who conducted me to the per-
son I wished to see. They won't let
anyone in the buildings alone. The
men are polite but careful in their
handling of interview-seekers. I vis-
ited the secretary of war and the
President. They were particularly
courteous and informal.
Office Room Scarce
"It is practically impossible to se-
cure office room in the city, and the
department of war has been forced to
build a frame structure with beaver-
board partitions which contains 250,-
000 feet of floor space. In many in-
stances the different offices of the
same department are located 10 or 12
blocks apart. No one can appreciate
the congestion unless he has been
there.
"The temper of the people is excel-
lent and no one is growling atthe hard-
ships forced upon the people. They real-
ize that these are war times and we
are Americans, champions of democ-
racy. They will stick to it to the
end.'

25 cents for a cup of coffee, 50 cents
for an order of sardines, 75 cents for
ham and eggs, and 15 cents for two

liquor to any extent any place in the
East. There is no illumination any
place unless it is absolutely necessary.
Service flags are seen on all sides and
the flags of the Allies decorate mnany
stores and hotels.
Democratic Courtesy Exists
"The most striking thing one notic-
es is the courtesy and politeness with
which the officials greet visitors. They
are always polite and ready.to accom-
modate people any way possible. The
wonderful democratic spirit which
prevades the capital is responsible for
this, I believe. I heard no details or
discussions of the war while in
Washington, but everyone seems to be
working hard to do his share to win
the war. The futher from the city I
got, the more I heard about the war.
'My impression is that we of the inland
states hardly realize yet that we are
in war and, it will probably take
months before we are fully awake to
the fact. The sooner people inure
themselves to hardships and depriva-
tions of al) kinds, the better.
People Should Conserve
"Stay home, saw wood and carry,"
Dean Cooley continued. "The people
of the East are doing this but I'm
afraid we haven't learned it yet. Ev-
eryone that doesn't have to travel
should stay at home. They
should learn to use smaller fires and
wear more clothes. If the temperature
of the house is five degrees lower and
people wear more clothes, the coal
pile will grow proportionately, Try
the Indians' system. They build a lit-
tle fire and stand close to it; the white
man builds a big fire and stands far
away from it. A small grate fire will
take the chill out of the room and save
much coal. Live outdoors more and
you won't notice the lower tempera-
ture indoors.
Muicigan Men Prominent

I ran into Michigan men. As usual.
