Booklovers See Advantage of Seep
ing Answers to lurries in Com
pact and Neat Porm.
The binders 'for use In The "Waahlnr
ion iieraia j-sooKlovers' Contest are
growing In favor as the climax ot the
competition draws nearer. The conven
ience of the binder, mucins It easy for
the contestant to assemble his answers
to the slxty-flve problems. Is the basis
of the popularity of the innovation. The
binder Is also economical, and that ad
vantage has not escaped the attention
of pie contestants; but facility in hand
ling; answers to the pictures Is the chief
Nearly every contestant, it is believed,
will submit more thqn one answer to
each picture, and for that reason It is
expected that most of the participants
in the competition will use binders.
It may be borne In mind, however, that
it Is not necessary to use binders to be
eligible In the contest. They are merely
for convenience.
The advantage of submitting more than
one answer to each problem is apparent,
for more than one answer to a picture
may seem to the contestant to be ap
propriate and logical. Where the con
testant is in doubt which answer to sub
mit, he would do well to submit both.
Five answers for each picture are al
lowed, and it is anticipated some con
testants will make use of all Ave an
swers for each of the slxty-flve prob
lems. The first prize offered contestants Is a
line building lot In Handle Highlands,
valued at ROOO.
The second prize Is a Kingsbury lnner-
piayer piano valued at Jiso. The Instru
ment, one of standard make. Is on exhi
bition at the store of the Percy S. Fos
ter Piano Company, 1330 G Street North'
The third prize Is a 500 library of
books from Brentano's. Twelfth and F
Streets Northwest. The winner of this
prize will be entitled to the privilege of
making changes In the selection of books
recommended by the Brentano manager.
For consolation prizes cash awards ag

87 Means of Phonograph the Ani
mals' Howls Are Made
New York, June 10. The long-drawn
howl of a timber wolf shattered the soli
tude which comes at nightfall In the
Zoological Park In the Bronx. There
came a chorus of howls and then silence.
After an Interval came another bowl.
this so low that heard 'at a distance It
s 'undt-d like the echo of a moan, and
this Ian sound was more melodious than
the first a sort of Ideal wolf call to the
mght Eilghtly soprano and rising must-
all, note upon note.
This last call was not the cry of a wolf.
It came from a phonograph hidden near
the wolf cages, and was a demonstration
yf an experiment that is being conducted
b. a student of animals to prove that
the calls of wild animals can be made
more musical, in other Mortis, that voice
culture is possible among animals.
Ra1 mond L. Ditmars. the curator of the
zoo is enthusiastic over this experiment,
as he is oer the oddities in the zoo
which from time to time, find their way
Int.' print Mr. Ditmars Is of the opinion
that already the wolves can howl more
in harmony and In key than they could
b. for the phonograph, and the scientist
began to teach them the way to reach
l.igh C gracefully. To the untrained ear,
however, the howls remain as unmusical
as the were in the nights before the
experiment began.
Mr D.tmars did not give the name of
the s tentlst who Is demonstrating hil
theory, and he offered no Information
regarding the identity of the person or
animal who gave forth the melodious
wolf, all of which Is now recorded on
the phonograph and let off at Intervals
to frighten staid, homegoing Bronxltes.
He admitted It was not a record of
Caruso s voice The new wolf call Is
bad enough, but It is certainly an im
provement upon the call given out by
the untrained wolf voice.

rendered, and the hundreds of rustic
seats about the music shell are well

a number. Dancing Is on the card
every week-day evening, and can be
named as the most popular attraction,
without fear of contradiction. Bizarre

Is the gift to the school of agriculture
, modern barn which in completeness
of detail is said to be excelled by few If
any of the similar buildings belonging
to the great State universities. This
barn stands on the large acreage which
belonged to the home place of Alexander
Campbell, and these acres are also pre
sented to the college, for experimental
farming purposes. The buildings which
were the home of Thomas and Alexan
der Campbell have been separated from
the estate and turned over to a "me

If the size ot attendance at prayer
meetings Is, as it Is often said, an In
dex of the interest of a church, the out
look at Fifth Church Is very bright In

Pastor Briggs, have never been better

A Jewish Contributor of Catholic
An interesting gift, or rather the flrst
of Die interesting gifts which will total
323.000. has just been made to the Roman
Catholic University at Washington, by
Dr. Max Pam, a Jewish lawyer, of Chi
cago, with a reputation for philanthro
pic Interests. He has just forwarded to
Cardinal Gibbons the sum of 35,000 to es
tablish the flrst of five scholarships, the
others to be git en annually during the
next four years. The awards are to be
made to students making a special In
vestigation or present social and eco
nomic problems. In his communication
which accompanied the gift. Dr. Pam de
clared his conviction that our modern
arlsls centers around "man's relation to1
man, man's relation to the government,
and man's relation to property." He
oices his hopes that these scholarships
may help to raise up a leadership really
qualified to discover ways out. "We
hear advanced, from time to time,"
says Dr. Pam, "new and strange the
ories of government. There are some
who claim, even at the present hour,
that the Constitution has outlived Its
usefulness. The people at bottom are
right, but they need wise and honest
leadership. To avert this latter danger
we must have men who are qualified by
training and Integrity."
To a representative of the Congrega
tlonallst Dr. Pam declared that his main
Interest was simply the welfare of the
human family. Replying to a query
with regard to socialism and the evi
dent bias against It with which a Cath
olic Investigator would probably start,
be said his own desire In the studies
would be for findings made without bias
or prejudice. The term socialism, he
leeia. covers as yet so vague an eco
nomic sphere that the situation qan
well be considered without its complications.
National Assembly of
Workers with Boys Projected.
Y. M. C. A. workers among boys have
taken Initial steps toward holding next
year the flrst assembly on work for
boys. It will be confined to Associa
tion workers, but will Include all work
ers In North America. The place has
not yet been decided upon, but It will
be some city In the Central West. The
date will be one year hence. This time
is selected in part because the triennial
gathering of the World's Student Chris
tian Federation occurs then, and will
bring here from Europe many noted
workers among students and boys.
The very rapid growth of Association
work among boys demands. It Is said,
the confing together of experienced lead
ers from many sections, and experts
who have studied boy life. It Is held
that the Men and Religion campaign will
soon have spent Its Initial force, and
that workers among boys must now
take steps to conserve that Interest A
unique plan for expense of delegates has
been put forth. It is that all delegates
pay JI5 whether they come long or short
distances. The amount is pooled, and
all fare the same. To reduce this sum
If possible, appeals are to be made to
givers, and whatever Is secured is di
vided pro rata.
The Association has 98,000 boys In Its
membership, of whom 74,000 are using
the gymnasiums. About 30,000 boys reg
ularly attend Association Bible classes,
and 10,000 the educational classes. The
latter Is for the most part Industrial
and has for Its aim the training of

Many ot the clergy are now planning
their vacations, to which the strenuous
character of the winter and aprlng work
In Washington church circles fully en
tities mem. Aione among Washington
churches the two principal churches In
Georgetown have the excellent plan of
worklhg In concert, the same locum te-
nens conducting service alternately In
each church during the absence of its
rector. Considering the depleted charac
ter of the congregations durlmr July and
August, this arrangement might be ex
tended with very satisfactory results.
It Is interesting to note that while
this Is the slack tlmo of the year for
city churches. It is the busiest time Im
aginable for the country churches. .The
country is generally very run of visitors,
and the roads are all good, and conse
quently the traveling Is goqd also-all of
which Is conduclble to full congregations.
The next Red Letter Saints Day ot the
church occurs on Monday, when the Na
tivity of John the Baptist Is celebrated.
Tbe circumstances of the birth of the
Baptist being so unrque necessarily gave
the Idea of celebrating that event in the
round of the church calendar. The
spiritual teaching was too Important to
bo other than emphasized.
Mr. Bernard Carter's death In Balti
more has deprived the church of. the
services and influence of one of her most
gifted and honored sons. He was the
father of Bev. George Calvert Carter,
until recently rector ot St. Andrew's
Church, this city. Few churchmen were
better know, a than he, and few church
men, too, ave a better Idea ot those
great essential principles of tbe church
than he. He was a member of old St.
Paul's Church, Baltimore, and a member
of the vestry of, the same.

Cuban Troubles Affect
Christian Work Enterprises.
The newly developed race war In Cuba
and the military operations started be
cause of It are affecting adversely the
Christian work of the island, especially
that part projected and maintained by
Americans. The chief Protestant bodies
of this country having missions In Cuba
are the Baptist North and South, the
Episcopal, and the Methodist South. The
earliest there, even before the political
freedom of the Island, were the Baptist
South and th Episcopal. The growth
of Protestant work In the Island, among
both white and black, has been steady
and along educational lines large.
Baptist North work was early project
ed In Santiago and the extreme east,
and supported by Americans through
Baptist churches here are a large Bap
tist Church In Santiago Itself and sev
eral smaller churches In Oriente Prov
ince. Attached to the churches are
schools, and these schools have been
attended by children of both races,
usually heretofore without prejudice to
either. Reports received by the Baptist
Home Mission Society show that chapels
at La Maya and at Jorahucca have
been burned, not by military forces, but
by marauders and malcontents. Bap
tists In Eastern Cuba alone have fifty
four churches. The Episcopal Church
has vtcrk In nearly all parts of the
Island, with a cathedral at Hat ana, and
a considerable educational system that
has headquarters In Guantanamo.
