Insanity in Navy
Blamed on Bad Habits
Insanity nmong enlisted men In the
navy occurs large among those who had
Irregular habits before enlistment and
cannot be regarded as entirely normal.
This Is tho conclusion of Passed Assist
, uht Burgeon Uober Putts, who has been
("onductlng an Investigation Into the
"Desertion, drunkenness and fraudu
lent enlistment are tho most common
offenses of these Insane men," sals Dr.
Putts. "The hobo or tramp prior to
enlistment will bo the deserter or ab
sentee after enlistment. The chronic
alcoholic before cnllstmint will sooner
or later be found drunk on duty or ne

' ct them toconform to tho regula
tions of the nay tor any greut length
of time, certainly not for tho four cars
of their enlistment. It Is inhumane
and It doeH no good to punish an Im
becile or mentally defective Individual
for crime or offenses for which he H
either not at all or only partially responsible,"

The New Home of
Washington Studio of Distinctive Portraiture
Business and art are antagonistic always have been always will be.
The success of The Towles Studio in Washington has been pursued along artistic lines. A striking example
of this fact is to be found in the newly located studio at 1520 Connecticut Avenue (at Dupont Circle).
In this fashionable section of the city we are away from the busy whirl of business life and its influences.
Here we are fully prepared to pursue, and are pursuing, our work of producing distinctive portraiture, amid a con
genial atmosphere, unhampered by the many incumbrances unavoidable in the city's business and shopping district.
In addition to that absolutely essential requisite of the artist, under
standing of the art practiced, we are equipped with every mechanical de
vice and appointment necessary for the highest attainable standard of work.
The entire building we picture is devoted exclusively to the art of dis
I he interior picture is of the Lounge, just
as you enter from the inner hall. To the rear
of this room is the Salon of Contemporary
Art a gallery of ever-changing exhibits of
the work of the world's most famous "knight
of the tripod," from which comparison with
Towles' creations may readily be made.

Just now this Salon is graced with
a Loan Exhibit representing the fore
most studios of this country and Ger
many. The broad staircase at the right leads
to the floor above with its Camera or Posing Room and Rest Room, with adjoining Boudoirs for the convenience of visitors to the studio.
The entire basement is given over to the mechanical end of our work. Here are located the Developing, Drying, and Printing Depart
ments. When -we spoke of the perfection of the equipment in these departments, we referred to such features as a printing apparatus
that splits a second in quarters, a process that prevents human hands from touching plates until they are dry and ready for handling, etc.
In most studios it is in the mechanical department that the iinal results are obtained and such results of a necessity must be mechan
ical. But we pursue the art of-portraiture artistically and the result is produced in the Camera Room, brought about by our understanding
of light and its photographic value necessarily an artistic result.
Such distinctive portraiture is as different from the ordinary as the difierence between a Rembrandt and a cheap Chromo. It is for the
purpose of having you inspect this new home of the Towles Studio and compare its artistic products that we make this announcement. Such
an inspection and comparison before determining upon any other studio may be the means of preventing that disappointment which an
unsatisfactory picture never fails to produce. f
Artistic, distinctive portraiture at $5 and upward for one dozen.
At 1520 Conn. Ave.
Our down town studio, 1 107 F St. N. W., will, of course, continue to remain open for your accommodation.
That superior quality portraiture does not necessitate excessive charges is evidenced by the fact that
