Mason, president of the Commercial
Speaking- at n dinner of the fourth""
Liberty Loan commltteo of the Ileal
Estate Hoard, in the Dellevne-Strat-ford
last nlg-lit, he prophesied the fifth
loan would be disposed of In a week,
the sixth in forty-eight hours and the
seventh In one day.
"When thirteen million men reclster

not too much to hope that before long;

School children of Philadelphia will
i bo organized for Liberty Loan campaign
work similar to that done during the
third loan, despite the adverso sentiment
, of most members of the Pennsylvania
women's Liberty Loan committee, cx-
pressed In tho conference yesterday.
I "The children have done splendid
, work In threo loans, and I doubt serl
, ously.lf we could keep them out of this
If we tried' said Louis Nusbaum. asso-
elate superintendent of schools. In
charge of the organization of the school
children. "They are just as patriotic
. and eager to do their share nn the
adults, and they feel they are actually
, doing something tangible for their coun

. tlons. Of tho S15.GD3.430 worth of sub
scrlptlons turned In by school children
T In the last loan, $12,500,000 were ob
tained by grade school children."
( While there was no motion or regu
lation made on the question at the con
, ference of State Liberty Loan women
, workers, It was the general opinion of
all those who discussed It that the
children's work caused more or less con-
fusion. The greatest complaint was the
duplication of effort. Children, the
women complained, went promiscuously
to business houses or homes to solicit
Then when the adult committee mem
bers went to their assigned work they
met the reply, "I havo already been'
i solicited by half a dozen children."
I "It was because of this comolalnt."
' explained Mr. Nusbaum, "that the pub Jf
lie and parochial schools were put this
, time under tho direction of the women's
committee. I believe much of the dunll.
cation will thus be eliminated.
; Work for Trevlous Loans
"However, I know the children last
i time obtained many subscriptions which
otherwise would have been overlooked.
.I know In many neighborhoods they so-
' llelted the domestic servants and ob
tained many subscriptions. Then there
are both men and women who give
more gladly and generously to children.
"As to confusion In the turning in ot
' reports from th children and lost sub-
". scrlptlons, I am sure there was no such
complaint In Philadelphia, t consulted
several bankers on the question Just re.
. cently. While many of the people who
subscribed last time failed to lift their
bonds, they Bald the larger per cent of
" these were among subscriptions turned
. In by adults. Children In Philadelphia
i were Instructed to take no money what
; ever In the Liberty Loan campaign,
' They merely obtained the subscription
and turned In to their teacher or prin
cipal the signed subscription blanks."

SOLDIERS ARE JUDGES
Allied Flags Float Over Ring
as Day Opens Tradi
With Emergency Aid aides tiding as
ushers, Girl Scouts directing trafllc and
committees of women handling most of
the side attractions, there was a dis
tinctly feminine touch to the opening
session of the second Bryn Mawr War
Horse Ehow a the Bryn Mawr Polo Club
The military touch was also much In
evidence with the Allied flags waving
In the breeze, British, French and Amer
ican army officers acting as Judges and
a squadron of rough riders from Camp
Dix provldllng the mg thrill of the exhi
bition. True to tradition, the first day weather
was perfect, after n damp and foggy
dawn, and the crowd was really worthy
of the name 'a ery unusual thing for
Things ran off like clockwork, thanks
to the combined efforts of the executive
committee and Its many able assistants.
It. Penn Smith, who had begged oft the
Job of master of ceremonies, held By
him at this Bhow for many, many years,
found the urge too strong, and was on
hand bright and early.
Smith Prlie Horses
He was Immediately pressed Into ser
lcc In a Bort of ex-ofllclo capacity. Mr.
Smith has recently bought a new farm
near Unlonvllle, which he has named
Penn Manor, and has been so busy fixing
up the place he figured he would not
have time to sparo for this show. When
the tlmo came he Just couldn't stay
away, as he put It, and, besides snowing
up himself, he brought a fine string of
horses with him.
This war horse show Is a bit different
from its peace-time predecessors, In that
It has many "added attractions" to
catch tho pennies of the spectators.
Candy, toys, smokes and a cafeteria
were among them. Incidentally a dog Is
also on top, held In a tent not far from
the tan bark ring, whero the thorough
breds are put through their paces.
Colonel Percy Herbert, one of the
Judges of the hunters, represented the
British remount commission; Lieutenant
Gaston Bay, of the French remount com
mission, helped to Judge the harness
horses and ponies, while Lieutenant
Colonel McBrlstol, chief of the American
remount division, was one of the trio
who gauged the merits of tho timber
As further proof of the International
savor. It may be mentioned that Lady
Reading Is a patroness of the exhibition.
aB aro also Mrs. Newton D. Baker, wife
of tho Secretary of War; Mrs. Josephus
Daniels, wife of the Secretary of the
Navy, and Lady Grant, wife of Admiral
Grant, head of the British naval commls-
slon to the United States.
Girl Scouts Busy
So varied were the attractions that It
was difficult to "take them all in." The
Girl Scouts, commanded by Miss Ellen
Mary Cassatt, were busily engaged In
keeping the grounds In condition, and a
number of society girls, unaer the lead
ership of Miss Mary Brown Warbur
ton, were here, there and everywhere
In their smart Emergency Aid aide cos
tumes, selling cigarettes, candles and
A most attractive booth, filled with
toys of all descriptions and topped with
a wide umbrella, was presided over by
Mrs. Victor Mather, who was wearing
one of the new terracotta high-crowned
cloth hats, faced with deep blue, which
accentuated tho color of her eyes. Mrs.
Antelo Devereux was assisting Mrs. Ma
ther. Tlmft war when thft women wore
"gowns" and "frocks" to the horse Bhow,
but now everything Is uniform. It may
be blue, trimmed with red, as In the
Emergency Aid aide costume, or it may
be the blue and leather of the National
League for 'Women's Service, with the
smart service cap-shaped hats. Which
ever it Is. it is worn and very smartly
worn at that.

One of the most exciting places on the
ground Is the waffle booth, where crisp
hot waffles and golden syrup are being

"I must say frankly that I havo not
