AS PART OF
Teachers Practice Delsarte Be
fore Gaping Parents, Who
Fear for Daughters' Morals.
Fathers and mothers and sisters and
brothers of many school teachers of the
District have been watching with won
der the rhythmic swaying and gestur
ing In which the school teaching mem
bers of their families have Indulged the
last two days.
These young teachers have been cap
ering lightly and gayly, hands and feet
moving m time with the music. In
some cases fear has been expressed by
elderly and highly respectable parents
that daughter Is trying the turkey-trot
or some of these new-fangled dances of
which one reads and hears so much.
But this alarm Is unfounded. The
school teaching girls are moving syn
chronously with the accent of the music
because it is now part of the!? business.
The hands and feet move up and down
or from side to side In swaying and
posturlngs because they are about to
teach the young Idea how to do the
Orders have gone out to all fifth and
sixth grade teachers that they must
Inculcate In their charges a sort of
rhythm sense and must lead physical
culture exercises which are to be sweet
ened by musical accompaniment.
Teachers of the first four grades have
been doing something, like this for some
days. But as their boys and girls are
so young and small that they cannot
really dance much, It has been left for.
the fifth and sixth grade teachers real-
ly to start this movement:
Beginning Monday in all the fifth and
sixth-grade roomsof the 'city schools,
the engaging Spectacle may be seen of
forty or so boys and girls dancing
these rhythm dances with "teacher" In
front, of them leading and directing and
Illustrating the" way It should be done.
It Is predicted that the pupils will like

are in favor of it except the awkward,

"urgent needs of 1300,000 voteless people
and the larger population of the future

i"I greatly regret I could not -attend
your Important meeting," he Bays. "I
would urge attention to the two-fold
nature of park requirements In Wash
ington: "First, the orderly, dignified,
and beautiful development both of open
spaces and of public structures, as they
shall be required to provide In an ade

of those local recreation grounds, out

which are requisite to the welfare of
the Inhabitants of every city.
"In the first respect, some kind of
action Is forced by governmental ne
cessities, and the problem is only that

OP CONSTABLES IN
MOTOR CASES HIT
Maryland Automobile Commis
sioner Files Report Con
demn Arrests. .
A report of deep Interest to Wash
lngton motorists was made public" to
day when Automobile Commissioner
Harry A. Roe, of Maryland, presented
to Governor GoldsboroUgh the result of
his Investigations, la regard to ihe al
leged "legalized hold-ups" of motor
ists In Hyattsvllle and LaureL Ther
substance of tho report Is to tho effect
that constables in these towns were
"ovcrzcalous" owing to an ordinance
providing the fines imposed should be
divided between the arrcsUng officer
and the town.
Commissioner Boe treats the -subject
most optlmlstlcaly, stating that the
ordinance has been repealed by Hyatts
vllle, and will be repealed by Laurel.
Owing to the publicity given the al
leged holding up of motorists. Com
missioner Roe Bays the officers' have
been much more lenient lately than
before, -and' In his belief the motorists
will bo treated fairly In the future.
Defease Of Constables. ,
In behalf of the constabulary "of i the
towns. Commissioner Roe states that
It Is entirely probable that the motor
ists were not always' within the 'speed
limits when, they wer arrestedv Je
shows that outside the towns they
send their machines along at the rate
of forty ;or fifty miles an hour. When
they arrive at the town limits It Is
provable that they cut dowm speed- 'to
twenty miles an hour' and, being ex
hilarated by Bpeed, really believe they
are well within an eight 'or ten-mile
limit. The officers, however, not having
been exhilarated by, speed, have no such
Idea, and the .motorists are arrested.
In regard to the justice or tne peace
for Infamta ui CkiUros.
In Laurel. Commissioner Roe states that
his. actions, In Imposing fines has ' beM
Inexcusably; Irregular! The crdteastce
states that- the lines Tort speedln
through the town shall be not'lesattum
nor more thanlJlOr In many case
the commissioner found that fines of 5?
