Mrs. Robert Francis CartwTight took a delega tion of working girls to the convention of the City Federation of Women's Club yesterday morning to testify to the insults they have to endure in the bridge crush, but the subject was reached at Fuch a late hour that they had to return to their ■work before giving their experience. Mrs. Cart wright, however, spoke eloquently In their behalf. "I couldn't tell you the stories I have heard of indignities suffered by women on the bridge," she paid. "A girl really takes her life and her reputa tion In her sands when she crosses It In the rush hours. I know one who had to take out her hat pin and use it before her tormenters would desist. I asked some of them why they did not make charges against those who annoyed them, but they paid they dare>d not because the consequent pub licity would cost them their positions." Mrs. Cartwright thought that the use of esca lators at the bridge would remedy this evil. She •aid the police had told her (hat the escalators •would make their work much easier. The federation passed a resolution indorsing the plan, and most of the members signed Individually a petition to the Mayor asking that the escalators b«* Installed. "I have resigned from all my New York clubs since I went to live in Brooklyn," said a delegate from that borough, as she added her name to the roll of petitioners. "I would have been willing to risk the bridge crush myself, but my husband •wouldn't hear of It." At the afternoon session the women teachers of the public schools renewed th?ir warfare over the "White, bill for the equalization of salaries, now under consideration by the Mayer. Mrs. Edward Mandel spoke for the disaffected primary teach ers, and was supported by Mrs. Silas P. Leveridge, chairman of one of the local school boards and th* Interboroußh Awcclation was represented by Its president and treasurer. Mrs. X. Curtis Leni' hen and Mrs. Ellen O'Brien, and the chairman of the executive committee. torn Grace Straduui. Mrs. ..landel. who is the wife of a principal and not a teacher, said she was a member of the Inter borough Association. Miss O'Brien retorted that this was Impossible, as only teachers could belong to that body. "I have no knowledge of this opposition, offi cially or financially," she declared. Th« statement was received with a storm of hisses, and Miss O'Brien hast-ned to explain that ehe meant no reflection on Mrs. MandeL Both sices went into financial details that the audience «dn t understand, but it was evident from the be ginning: that the day was with the Interboroughs. •SMI when Miss Strachan rose to speak the ap- Mr, US WnM S *V One and S ° IOUd that tlic Prudent.

The laughter of the audience showed that the delegates considered the appointment of such a committee singularly apropos, but it was not Mrs Nathan's Intention that it should devote itself to the settlement of club rows. It was decided that such a committee should be appointed. Mrs. Stoddard Hammond, president of the State &**■"■■• ? nd , Mra.

The place of meetieg was made beautiful by a display of window boxes arranged as an object lesson by Mr*. Bdward H. Hall, of the Municipal Art Society, and the president's white lace Em pire gown and blue picture hat seemed Just what was needed to complete the picture. CENTURY CLUB IN GL'ANDARY. From the conversation that went on in liie cor ridors of the Hotel Aator yesterday while the City Federation was in session. It seemed evident that there was going v be a large dsfssttOn from the Tentury Theatre Club <n areount of the Mark Twain episode. "I didn't know I had Joined ■ Christian Science club," said one. "and I am going to get out." "1 only stayed In," said another, "because it was so harmonious. If we me going to row !ik<? other clubs, I am going to get out." The future of the club is very uncertain, and an executive meeting held at the home of the presi dent. Mrs. Sydney Roscnfold, yesterday morning failed to produce any pkm by which the present problems can be solved. According to the constitution, Mrs. Rosen f eld cannft be re-elected unless she i:s elected unani mously, and that row appears to be Impossible, but there are s>\ ill many who cannot Imagine the flub without her. Hence a general feeling of ship wreck. Meantime many large contributions hsrve been withdrawn from the club's booth at the Actors' Fund Fair on account of the. Mark Twain incident. Among those mentioned as candidates at the elec tion which takes place next Friday are Mrs. Edith Kills Baiter, chairman of the fair committee, and Mrs. Frank Stuart Osborne.

The neighborhood around Avenue A and fist Street took an ; afternoon off yesterday to attend the tree planting exercises at Public School 36. The open air part of the programme was announced for 2 o'clock. An hour before that time a solid mass of men, women and children, many of tho last babies in arms, lined Avenue A for more than a block en the side opposite the school. Every lire escape on the tenement houses facing the school was loaded with humanity, and almost every one displayed rather battered (lags in some cases, but the Stars and Stripes, neverthe less. It was a quiet but an eager crowd, for in a very few minutes "my Johnnie" or "my Mary" was going to come marching out of those big doors, waving a Rag and singing and wearing the clean new blouse or frock which] In many of the fami lies, represented no little sacrifice. Meantime, inside the school the pupils of the girls' department were having songs and recita tions in the assembly room. The primary pupils had had theii celebration In the morning. The singing of both departments was remarkably goo.l. and some pretty surprises had been prepared by the various classes. In the ■■surprise" given by US nine little girls danced In with a rhythmic waltz step. swinging white and yellow ribbons, and sang a song about "Buttercups and Daisies. At 2 o'clock the primary children marched into the street, under the leadership of their principal, Mrs. Mary C. O'Brien. The girls of tho higher de partment followed, with Mrs. Eliza S. Pell, their principal. Two by two, line after line, they came, till the east side of the street from Ms; street to S2d street was packed with a solid level of llt.ie heads, black, brown and yellow. There were al most three thousand children in all. Then they Sang. They sang arbor songs, and they sans "America." and waved the flags they held, and they recited "one nation, one language. one flag." nnd stretched out their small hands In salute to the large flag which a tall girl held. Big policemen walked up and down the narrow space in the centre of the street, keeping back thH fathers and mothers, who pressed forward, each trying to catch fight ci Ms or her own particular child. Trucks drew up on the outskirts of the crowd, and the drivers craned their necks to see the small future citizens declaring their loyalty to th" flag. If not future — being mostly girls— ih.v were at least future mothers of voter?. There was to have been pome tree planting lit Public School 96 yesterday, but the trees were so disobliging as not to arrive in time. However, the tr'-eu planted by the school in former years had budded bravely in honor of the day, in spite of tho late spring. There was one little Bohemian girl at the exer cises win was particularly glad to be there. A ■.!]•!'• of days ago her mother came to Mrs. Pell and told her she didn't believe she could get the child a dress for Arbor Day. "My man's been drinking for a week," she said. "I've tot to go to court and get him sent to the Island." But "her man" reformed, at least temporarily, and the woman didn't go to court this time, and the child's Urcss was made. AGAINST COMIC SHEETS. Kinder hers Think Colored Sun day Supplements Are Baneful. The International Kindergarten Union. In session at Teachers College, decided yesterday to conduct a campaign of education against the "comic" sec tions of, certain Sunday newspapers. Parents will be urged by criculars to exclude these sections from their homes and the union will pay the ex penses of the fight. A sub-committee of children's writers and illus trators Is to try to find a substitute for the comic supplements, and will report at the next conven tion, which will probably be held in New Orleans. The action was based on a literary committee's report, which dwelt on what was called the abso lutely false note struck in the minds of children by the supplements. It said that In the pictures there were no signs of sincerity or honest effort, and that the supplements were devised simply with a view to a wide sale. Women's clubs all over the country will be asked to join in the work, and newspapers will be asked to publish good literature for children regularly WHIST LEAGUE CONGRESS. The Woman's Whist League will hold its tenth annual congress at the Waldorf-Astoria from May I to 11, inclusive.

Through the agency of the weather bureau two million American farmers are placed in telephonic communication every day with hundreds of trained observers in the enda of the earth, whose combined knowledge and experience enable thi m to tell these farmers how to care for their crops. Through the snrao agency the mariners of the I'uited States are warned of the dangers of approaching storms. Through the same agency the dwellers In great river valleys are cautioned when there Is a flood descending upon them. Th« Associated Press Is looked upon as being the greatest information collecting agency In the world. Hut dots The Associated Press hear each day from Seydisfjord, Iceland? The weather bureau does. Also from St. Petersburg in R;ms!a, from Irkutsk in Siberia, from the Azores Islands, from the Ker mudas, from the British Isles, from nearly ever) 1 country in Europe, from the West Imiies, from dozens Of places in Mexico, from sc«>res in Canada and from nioro than two hundred cities In the t'nited States. The information which comes to the central office of the weather bureau in "Washington from all these places enables the forecaster to venture a prediction about what the weather will be for the next thirty-six or forty-eight hours. Sometimes the forecaster does not hit it. and there is a pretty general disposition among readers of newspapers in cities to sneer at "Old Prob." The fruit grower of Florida, the cranberry grower of New Jersey, the mariner of the Great Lakes, the tobacco planter of the Middle South— and many other classes of Americans remember how many millions of dol lars the weather bureau predictions have saved them. They do not sneer. Those persons who have been Induced to move back from the banks of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers because of a weather bureau flood warning and have seen th« height of the flood's crest predicted to within a few Inches days and even weeks in ndvance— they do not sneer. Every daily newspaper In the TnltM States prints each day tho official weather forecast. If it i« left out by accident th^ subscriber? are sure to register a kick. The forecast cards ar« ser.t t.. thousands and thousands of persona, to whom they will get In time to be of benefit, and are posted in every i>.>st omco which can be reached by them. Uttl< cards with the forecast stamped on them aro sent out from central postofliccs along every rurnl free de livery route In the country where the carrier leaves late enough In the day to carry that day's forecast. Through the medium of the newspapers, the Bags and lanterns displayed and the cards posted, every city dweller in th* United Ktat. s may have the 1« nefit of the weather forecast without any par ticular effort or expense. Rut the. f.-.rn-rr Is tho man who needs the in formation most, and It is to reach the farmer t!.at Professor Willis h. Muore and bis assistants are striving. The telephone h;is solved the. problem In the Middle West and along the Atlantic const. Its rapid extension through rural districts makes it of increasing Importance each day, 'i> .■ ; panles aro requested to aid the bureau In the <!!• semination of this useful information. Most of them glady accede. Some of them refuse and want money. Those who go in for co-opt advertise the connection with the weather .cer vice ns a feature to induce farmers to become telephone subscribers. Tb« telephone service Is managed In this fashion: Tlio nearest official weather efflce telephones to the central or the telephone system the forecast, it is then distributed to c-acli centml exchange in tho sys tem, and ••certral." ever obliging, will be ue llghted to tell any Inquirer over th« 'phono what. the weather outlook may be. In case of a hurri cane or cold wave warning, there Is a general call arid each subscriber 1b informed ho that he may have ample time to protect himself, his stock and his crops. If It is s cold wave warning, the citrus grower In Florida or California, who f<-ar» the calamity of a frost, will protect his orange and lemon trees by building smudgo tires and making a cloud Of smoke that will liunsf Hke a mantle over the or chard and prevent frost. If it Is the cranberry grower of New Jersey or Wisconsin he will flood bis bogs and go to sleep, for enly a heavy freese can !nirt his crop. If It is the tobacco planter, he will cover his young plants with canvas nnd keep out tiie cold. The strawberry snrrlener will throw straw over bis beds. All of them will sleep tight, for the weather bureau has heard from the tour corners of the. world that day; it has found where the storms »re and In what direction the) are travelling; where the "low" nnd "hij,-!;" atmos pheric pressures are, and where those centres are travelling; and from all this the bureau has de ducd the information which has saved that farmer's year's work from destruction. Does the farmer sneer at "Old Prob"? Xot much. The two hundred reg'ilarly equipped observa tories In the country ar<" supplemented by ni"re than 3,<KKJ voluntary c.o-openxtive stations at which temperature and rainfall observations are taken. Besides the dally weather fore< asts, based upon the observations taken twice daily, at S a. m. and 8 p. in.. Washington time, tho weather bureau Issues a daily map from each of its principal sta tions, showing In detail the atmospheric conditions over the country obtaining each morning. A monthly weather review is Issued, showing the weather conditions for the month over the United Btates and adjoining countries, and containing elaborate meteorological charts and tables. In the cllmatological service there are forty-four sec tions, nearly corresponding to the states of the Union, and these compile, and publish each month bulletins showing In detail the climatic condition.-; for the month of each of tho sections. In addi tion to these, the bureau issues occasional bulle tins containing the larger reports made by the experts In tho various branches of the service. Scientific knowledge and mechanical Ingenuity have combined to give tho weather student the use of the most delicate nnd accurate instruments for measuring and recording the atmospheric press ure, tho temperature, tho direction and velocity of the wind, the variations of sunshine and clouds, tho fall of rain or snow. The barometer on the roof of a high building records with exactness every variation of the atmospheric pressure on a continuous record in tho office below It. And so •with the thermometera und other instruments, of which there are many types and the number of which ar* constantly increasing. There is such a thing as a self-recording sun dial, which keeps a record of the sunlight and clouds for a month at a time on blue print paper. At tho volunteer sta tions the rainfall Is measured in a simple rain gauge which has a funnel shaped mouth leading into a vessel of exactly one-tenth the superficial area of the mouth of the funnel. Tho water in this vessel is measured, and it there Is ten inches al v\ uter In it the rainfall has been one inch.

Over against this muy be s.'t the facts that a sin gle cold wave warning once saved $3,500,000 worth of property, that a flood warning saved 000, 000 worth of property and many lives In the Mis sissippi Valley, that storm warnings displayed one day detained In port coast vessels with their car goes valued at $30,000,000 which otherwise would have had to reckon with one of tho most terrific hurricanes ever known on the Atlantic. The daily service of weather predictions was be- Kun In the United States in 1910 by the Signal Corps of the army, and -it first was designed to aid the navigators of th« Oreiit Likes and tho At lantic Coast. Its scope and purpose were grad ually enlarged, and in 1691 it became a branch of the Department of Agriculture under the name of tliO weather bureau. Under the army regime the heads of he service were Generals Myer, f)rum, ii;:/.. and Qreely, and under v..- Department of Agriculture I'rofrssors Harrington an.! Moore. Pro fessor Moore, the present chief, has been conduct ing the affairs of the bureau since July. 1833. The work of the service has prawn constantly, and In the last few years, thanks to rural free delivery and the telephone. It hna Increased its scope to a wonderful degree. Each day tho observations taken the day before, are added to the stock of knowledge •■' the experts, and with each day the errors arising from Inadequate knowledge are fewer. The service Is becoming moro and more efficient, and, while It never will be perfect and- Infallible, it la destined to have a great share In the continued prosperity of the country. To the United States belongs much of the credit for tho development of the science of meteorology. Benjamin Franklin by means of his own observa tions and his private correspondence- found that storms moved northeastward from Philadelphia toward New England. Thomas Jefferson, at Monti cello. and James Malison, at WUllamsburg, in Vir ginia, took a series of simultaneous observations In the years 1772-1777. and certain conclusions were drawn from them, so that the belief took shape that storms had a certain progessiva movement and a whirling motion nt the centre, the founda tion of tha science as it Is known to-day. About the me time two French scientists proposed to establish stations over n large territory anil to take observations to discover the rules of the storm king's court. But It was fhe invention of the telegraph that made th • plans practicable. Professor Joseph Henry, of th<» Smithsonian Institution, who bad aided In the perfection of the telegraph, began to «lr:tw weather maps, and as early as 18M ho dis played them each day at the Institution In Wash ington.
