Monday Evening, June 24, 1957. Fight to Save Oldest House in Washington lir*o^r^V'T'/'i.AT mt_ - _I_T_ .. .- . .. ^*^ house in Washington, destroyed once by the British 143 years ago, faces destruction again at the hands of Congress. And Congress is likely to en counter as much opposition within the old red brick walls as did the British. This time the fight will be led by the National Women's Party, the present occupants and a group experienced on the political battlefield. Cause of the upcoming struggle is a bill introduced by Sen. Carl Hayden (D-Ariz.) which would add one and one-half blocks'of proi> erty, including historic Alva Se!• mont house, to the Senate side of the Capitol grounds. The lawmakers, already await )ng completion ot a new Senate office Building to help take care of mushrooming committees and staffs, have been eyeing the nearby Belmont House land for future needs. Support Grows "It's a sad thing," says Miss Alice Paul, founder and honorary chairman of the Women's Party, "to see buildings which have so much history woven around them destroyed." She has rallied a. growing number of House and Senate votes each year for her proposed "women's right" amendment to the Constitution. And she feels that "public support also has grown" for preservation of Belmont House. The women were joined by (he American Society of ' Architects, the Capitol Hill Restoration Society and other historical preservation groups to successfully beat off three previous Congressional timore by the King of England and reportedly provided the only resistance to the British when they marched into Washington in the summer of 1814. A National Historical Magazine account says "Commodore Barney and his men fired on the advancing force- from the upper stories, killing and wounding several of the enemy and killing General Ross' horse. The last indignity so enraged the general that he immediately ordered the house burned." The house was rebuilt several years later with one center portion erected in the 17th century still intact. The house today also holds mementos of the women's rights struggle. Among them are a desk which belong to Susann B. Anthony and a key to the old District of Columbia jail—temporary home of some enthusiastic suffragists during a 1917 demonstration which included picketing the White House. Rochester Mrs. William Keys of South Bend, a member of the Sewing Circle, Rochester, entertained the club at the Rochester City park, Thursday afternoon, for their regular meeting.
