Work Begun on George Washington
Temple Built of Snow Mar
ble and White Concrete.
Alexandria, Va. June 30. With
the turning of the first sod on a beau
tiful spot on the outskirts of Alex
andria overlooking the national cap-
itol, work has begun on a memorial
to George Washington which will be
a fitting companion piece to the Lin
coln memorial at Washington.
The edifice, a stately temple in
spired by Qreek and Roman archi
tecture, is being erected 07 the com
bined efforts of all the Masons and
Masonic orders In the United States,
and w ill be a tribute to Washington,
the man and Mason. It will be two
hundred feet from portico to observa
tion platform on the top, and will
be surrounded by an extensive land
scaped graden to be known as George
Washington park. It is expected the
memorial will be completed in from
four to five years. The cost will be
approximately J2.500.000.
Constructed of snowy marble and
white concrete, the columned struc
ture will tower high above the river
and will stand from a background of
densely verdured hillsides, a fitting
tribute, visible from miles, and with
in a short distance of the nation's
shrine, Mount Vernon.
) very Mason has been asked to
contribute a dollar toward the fund,
and-already more than $700,000 has
been collected. Additional pledges
bring the figure to almost $1,600,
000. Masonic orders and individuals
contributing $1 toward the fund will
be placed upon tae honor charter
roll to be kept among the temple
The building, according to archi
tects, will be after the style of hero
memorials placed at the harbor en
trances of ancient Greek and Roman
cit:es. It will be erected on a ridge
250 feet above the Potomac, and
from its tower, 200 feet higher, a
grand panamora of the city of Wash
ington will lie under the observers'
feet, as well as of the country bor
dering upon Mount Vernon, so loved
by Washington himself.
Pilgrims to the patriot's former
home and tomb will pass under the
shadow of the temple, going either
by land or river.
The first floor will be given over
largely to a memorial hall, the com
manding feature of which will be a
Heroic statue of Washington. How
ever, as the memorial as a whole will
be dedicated also to the memories of
other great Masons of the country,
there will be available to the grand
lodges of each state space in the
memorial hall in which they may en
shrine portraits or other tributes
to Masons whose deeds place them
beside the firrst president.
Such men as Paul Revere, repre
senting Massachusetts; De Witt Clin
ton. New York: Benjamin Franklin,
Pennsylvania; Henry Clay, Lewis and
Clark, Randolph and many others
have been suggested to be remem
bered thus as prominent history
making Masons. - .
The temple will be the active lodge
quarters of Alexandria-Washington
lodge No. 22, A. F. & A. M., of which
Washington was the first master
when it was lodge No. 39. Other
rooms surrounding the atrium will
be given over to the uses ol grand
national bodies of the order. At all
times, except when used in ritual by
the Alexandria lodge, the entire tem
ple open to the public.
Above the hall, which will rise in
a clerestory from the ground floor,
will be a museum and Masonic art
gallery. Here will be placed Masonic
portraits and the many historic rel
ics of Washington and the several
other noted Virginians who from
time to time have been members of
the Alexandria lodge.

Forbes Outlines Plans.
San Francisco, June 2. Col. C.
R. Forbes, director of the if. S. Vet-
! erans' bureau, drew both' applause
iand criticism from the dsiabled
: American veterans of the world war
today when he explained ' to their
convention the relief measures the
government had undertaken for its
stricken defenders. - ;
Cheers greeted his announcement
that the bureau had established an
employment unit designed to find
suitable jobs for every man given re
habilitation and his assertion that he
favored the civil service laws to give
former service men preferred posi
tions on every government list.
Scores of veterans clamored for
the floor, however, to ask why 'em
ployment had not been found by var
ious individuals and why others had
had their training concluded too soon
and their training pay stopped.
The climax of the. criticism, came
with the reading of a telegram from
the student officials of the training
school at Camp Sherman, O., de
manding that the school be closed.
This telegram, which was read by
Robert S. Marax- of Cincinnati, na
tional commander of the Disabled
American Veterans, asserted that the
president and other executives of the
school should not be ; hastily con
demned, said that its work so far was
satisfactory and that its graduates
would be found the best trained of
any rehabilitated veterans.
Brig. Gen. Charles E. Sawyer,
President Harding's physician, also
was criticised. Humphrey Sullivan of

Legion, charged Gen Forbes with
