THE WASHINGTON TIMES, SUNDAY, JUNE 23, 1912.
: CULTURE OF VOICE
interesting Experiments With
Phonograph Being Conducted
In Bronx Zoo.
' WKW tORK, June 23 The long-drawn
howl of a timber wolf shattered tho
'ftolltude which comes at nightfall In tho
Zoological Park In tho Bronx. Then
.cama a chorus of howlB and then sil
ence. After, an Interval camo another
.'howl th! bo low that heard at a dis
tance It "Hounded !lko the echo of a
moan, and this last sound was mora
melodious than the first a -ort of Ideal
Tv'olf call to tho night; slightly Boprano
'and rising mns',L.lly, note upon note.
This last ca.i. was not the cry of a
,Vfot It camo from a phonograph hid
den near tho wolf cages, and was a
demonstration of an experiment that
Is being conducted by a student of ani
mals to pVove that tho calls of wild
i animals can bo made more musical;
In other words, that volco culture Is
possible among animals.
Raymond L. Dltmars, the turator or
the zoo, Is enthusiastic over this ex
periment, as ho Is over the oddities 111
tho zoo which, from time to time, find
their war Into print. Mr Dltmarfi Is
of the opinion that already tho wolvts
can howl morn In harmony and in key
than they could before tho phonograph,
and tho scientist began to teach them
tho way to reach high C gracefully. To
the untrained ear, nowover, mo i"
remain ns unmusical as they were in
the nights before the experiment began.
