Castles Receive $5,000
Challenge to Prove They
Excel French Team.
B> HECTOR TURNBULL
William Morris, of the Jardin de
Danse, believes that Mr. and Mrs, Ver
non Castle, of Castles in the Air, are
the second best dancing team in New
York. Ho has 55,000 which he is ready
to lose if they can prove that they are
tha? best. All this is by way of indi?
cating his belief that Mile. Samya, the
French beauty, and M. Albert, his latest
Parisian importations, aro superior to
any dancers in this country.
Mr. Morris has issued a challenge.
He suggests that *heie be three meet?
ings of the two teams, with three
dances at each meeting. The first he is '
willing to take place al Castles in the
Air, the second he wants at his own j
Jardin de Danse and the third he would
have in Madison Square (larden. Other
details he would leave to a jury mut?
ually agreed upon.
All that's necessary now is for the
Castles to accept the challenge.

Amato was in excellent voice, and his

art that the community can oifer?"
Professor Zueblin laughed. "You
are comparing our present school sys?

system should be. I am comparing
the New York schools with other
schorls in the I'nited States to-day.
"The system here is in some ways
one of the best in the country."

"All that is perfectly true," Profes?

also true that the schools are improv- ;

to care for these children."
"If the teachers realized their re?

"The acceptance of responsibility de

' Professor Zueblin. "Our schools are
' seriously lacking in moral instruction.
By that, of course, I do not mean com?

a practical attempt to prepare boys

"What would you think of a course
on the ethics of marriage," I asked, "to
teacn young peoplo the meaning of
marriage, both as to the personal re?

relation of parenthood? It stems to
me that one of our chief responsibili

people to reason about the relations of
men and women to each other and :>>
the State before the problem becomes
personal and acute."
"I agree with you, of course," said
Professor Zueblin, "and I think that
women especially should take up this
matter as Mrs. Youiit* did in Chicago."

A trade school will cost about half

But if your half million dollai
