XEtabIitliM New Roles for
A campaign to make the gymnasium
of the Washington Young Men's Chris
tian Association the most hygienic In
the country was Inaugurated yesterday
by C Edward Beckett, physical director
of the association. Following are some
of Mr. Beckett's rules:
"A shower bath must be taken before
entering the pool.
"Spitting In the pool Is positively for
bidden. "The gymnasium costume must con
sist of white shirt and white running
trousers', with white shoes.
"AH athletic rpparel must be washed
as soon as it shows dirt.
"Members disregarding these rules will
be excluded from the privileges of the
"Men come to the gymnasium to ac
quire health and physical fitness," said
Mr. Beckett. In discussing his new rules
yesterday. "But It Is not recognized by
the general public that a gymnasium,
unless carefully watched, can become
a breeder of disease. For many years
we have enforced the rule that no one
suffering from consumption or social dis
eases may Join the physical branch of
the Y. M. C. A. We have also tried to
keep the gymnasium sanitary by fre
quent and thorough cleanings But I
noticed that a few men were not as
careful about their personal hygiene In
the gymnasium as the physical staff was
about the floor and apparatus. The new
rules are made operative to safeguard
the rights of the general membership
against the carelessness of these few."

to give notice of rate changes. It would
be illegal for steamship companies to
announce that they would or would not
maintain a certain schedule of rates for
a given time because they would thereb'
