HOMES TAKEN FOR
The British Government Commandeers
Hotels, Residences, and Public
Buildings for Officers' Wives
OCCUPANTS REQUIRED TO MOVE
By Hal O'Flaherty, United Press Staff
London, Oct. 14 -(By mail.)-Offic-
ers' wives and families, left in straight-
ened circumstances, are being cared
for in a magnificent manner by the
British government. Private hotels,
boarding houses, residences and public
buildings are being commandeered
daily for occupancy by families of
The method of securing these places
is causing owners some inconvenience
but in all cases the first complaints
are followed by cheerful acquiescence.
A private hotel in Brunswick Square
which has been the home of three Un-
ited Press correspondents, was taken
over by the government today after
only foyer days notice. Henceforth, it
will be the residence of the families
of nine English army officers.
The lessees of the Brunswick Square
house were actually flabbergasted
when government agents told them to
evacuate with all of their guests, who
were requested that evening to find
new homes within two days. There
was consternation among the femin-
ine guests, two of whom had been re-
cently saddened by the deaths of rela-
tives by German bullets. However,
after the first flurry and when the ob-
ject of the move became clear, the
grumbling ceased. At least fifteen peo-
ple are pounding London's pavements
searching for new homes today, realiz-
ing that they are helping the gov-
ernment provide for those whose need
To compensate the owners or les-
sees of commandeered buildings, the
government allows a certain portion
of the yearly rent. The furniture and
servants are taken over with the build-
ings, the government becoming active
head of the hotel or residence. The
empire's agents who inspect the pre-
mises to be used by officers' families
are skilled in the work, for they in-
variably take over those containing
Six months ago, London newspapers
contained scores of advertisements
asking homes for officers' wives. The
little "ads" were pitiful in a way, as
each suggested the picture of a nerv-
ous and fear stricken woman who had
waved farewell to a husband going to
the front, smiling bravely until the
train pulled out and then sobbing her
way to some, strange hotel. Today
these advertisements have practically
disappeared. The official heart of the
government has been touched and
henceforth the men at the front will
know that their families are in good
HGOTIS MADE CITY MANAGER
irst University Graduate in Munici-
pal Administration at Beaufort, S. C.
Harrison Gray Otis, the first candi-
date for the new degree of M. S. in
municipal administration in the Uni-
versity last year, is gaining fame as
the city manager of Beaufort, S. C.
Otis did graduate work last year in
the University, and then spent over a
year in studying the methods of city
managers in Jackson and Cadillac,
Mich., and Dayton and Springfield, O.
In August, 1915, after the dismissal
of the first city manager because of a
political fight of a bitter sort, Mr. Otis
was appointed to the city managership
of Beaufort. The first year under his
management has ended with complete
satisfaction to the city, and not once
has the cry of politics been raised.
