LETTERS GO IN ARCH Those About Titanic Memorial Not to Be Destroyed. OTHERS JOIN COMMITTEE Mrs. Fairbanks and Mrs. Underwood Among Those to Accept. OFFERS TO HAKE CANVASS Lexington Chapter, D. A. B., of Lexington, Ky., Anxious to Help B&ise Fund. The thousands of letters received by the chairman and secretary of the woman's Titanic memorial organization from women in all parts of the United States will not be destroyed when the memorial fund is completed, but will be preserved and built into the memorial arch itself, so that the words of the woman contributors to the fund will be come a part*of the memorial which that fund provides. The greater number of these letters, ac companying contributions, contain senti ments that have been deemed worthy of preservation. The vast bulk of the cor respondence makes it impossible to col lect the letters in printed form or in any kind of bound volumes, so the headquar ters officials have practically decided to have the letters compressed into as small a bulk as possible, and to seal them in an air and moisture proof crypt, to be built into one of the bases of the memorial arch, there to remain forever. More Accept Invitations. Acceptances of invitations to become members of the general committee of 100 are coming in at a gratifying rate, those received yesterday being from Mrs. C. W. Fairbanks of Indian apolis, wife of the former Vice Presi dent: Mrs. Theodore Marburg of Balti more; Mrs. Oscar W. Underwood of Ala bama, wife of the majority leader in the House of Representatives; Mrs. Julius Kahn, wife of Representative Kahn of California; Mrs. Anna Kelton Wiley, wife of Dr. H. W. Wiley, and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller. Jr., of New York. Mrs. Edwin Muller, regent of the Lex ington, Ky., Chapter of the D. A. R., has written to Mrs. John Hay. honorary chairman of the memorial, her letter reading: . Beady to Begin Canvass. "The Liexington Chapter, D. A. R., wishes to assist the movement for a , woman's memorial to the men of the Titanic, and, if agreeable to you, will canvass Lexington for $1 subscriptions for this fund. "Please let me know at your earliest convenience if this is satisfactory to you. We would like to begin the work of can vassing at once, and are much in sym pathy with the movement." While the fund for the erection of the memorial is to be donated wholly by women, many prominent men throughout the country are taking an interested part in the movement. Mrs. John Hays Hammond has received a letter from Rev. Father W. T. Russell of St. Pat rick's Catholic Church. Washington, in which he says: "I received your letter and shall be very glad to co-operate in this grand work. I am sure that every woman in our country will be proud of this op portunity of showing to the world at large her appreciation of the heroism of the men of the Titanic, and I truly be lieve that she will need no urging to make this arch worthy of the deeds which prompted it." FAVORS CONTRIBUTION BY COLONIAL DAMES Recommendation Made That Eaoh Give $1 for Titanic Disaster Memorial. That each member of the National So ciety of Colonial Dames of America con tribute $1 toward the fund being raised for the Titanic memorial was recommend ed at the final session today of the so- I dety, held at the Arlington Hotel. Asl there are about 5,500 members of the na- I tional society and each member is ex pected to make a contribution, the dona tion would be a substantial addition to the fund. Mrs. William Ruflln Cox. president, was re-elected and the following other offi cers were announced today: Mrs. Joseph R. Lamar, Mrs. Frances W. Qoddard of Colorado. Mrs. Elihu Chauncey of New York, vice presidents; Mrs. Charles R. Miller, secretary; Mrs. John Y. Taylor, assistant secretary; Mrs. Alexander J.

The Youn* Woman's Christian Associa tion campaigners raising the fund for the new building for the local Young Wom an's Christian Association went to work with a rush today and rolled up subscrip tions amounting to $9,86*25, which is an increase of several thousands over the record of yesterday. The women are still In the lead in the amount of their collection for the fund, but the business men were a good second today, the women turning in $5,423.25, and the men $4,441. This brings the to tal amount subscribed up to today to $73,384.26b The keenest kind of competition has de veloped among the teams, and as each captain made his or her report today the results were loudly applauded. The team headed by Mrs. W. H. Bayly, president of the local association, is in the lead a total subscription of more than 5 v* j ?f? t*1? men's teams that headed by William Knowles Cooper is leading with a collection of $4,010. Teams to Collect Money. Men and women prominent in every walk of life in the National Capital are giving all their energies to the great campaign. A team captained by Charles Mullikin, from which much is expected during the next week, has as its other members Jerome Bonaparte, George X. McLanahan, J. Will Henry, Dr. L. S. Green, Horace .H. Westcott, John Newbold, J. O. Seibert, James Hopkins, Leroy Tuttle, Oliver Ricket son and W. H. Walker, all of whom are prominent in social, professional and business circles of Washington. Another team, led by Mrs. E. W. Rob erts, wife of Representative Roberts of Massachusetts, who is also president of the Congressional Club, is composed en tirely of wives, daughters and otter rel atives of members of Congress, ana they are going after the money for the Y. W. C. A. building with all the energy and enthusiasm of the year-round Washing ton residents, realizing that the move ment is national, and that it Is to better the National Capital Thousands of girls who are aided by the local association come to Washington from the states in which the congres sional women have their homes, and this fact Is being taken home to every con gressman and his wife by the women of the team. The other members of Mrs. Robert's team are Mrs. A W. Gregg, wife of Representative Gregg of Texas; Mrs. J. T. Lloyd, wife of Representative Lloyd of Missouri; Miss Mattis, a niece of Representative McKinley of Illinois, leader of the Taft campaign for the presidential nomination; Mrs. H. G. i>anforth, wife of Representative Dan orth of New York; ? Mrs. W. E. Humphrey, wife of Representative Humphrey of Washington; Mrs. Gor don Lee, wife of Representative Gor don Lee of Georgia; Mrs. D. U. Flet cher, wife of Senator Fletcher of Flori da, and Mrs. R. N. Page, wife of Rep resentative Page of North Carolina. Teams Make Pine Showing. Among the teams which are making a fine shewing are those headed by Mrs. WiUiam Hamilton Bayly, Miss Elizabeth F. Pierce and Miss Mabel'Grandln. Those on Mrs. Bayly's team are Mrs. John Scufly, Mrs. Margaret Zimmilee, Mrs. H. E. Day, Mrs. John D. Hlrd, Mrs. J. B. Kendall, Mrs. C. S.

Mrs. Wllloughby Chesley, Mrs. George Chandlee, Mrs. Samuel O. Kimherley, Miss Eunice Wead. One interesting feature of the cam paign which in b*?ing brought out Is that the business girls of Washington are do ing a hustling business in raising sub scriptions. Five team# of girls, under the command of Miss Frances E. Chick ering, with five subcaptains, working after their business hours, yesterday re ported more than $730 as their collections to date for the fund. The business girls of Washington, many of whom derive benefits from the associa tion, are among the most generous of the contributors. One of these girls, who has a position in the government service gave yesterday $200 to the fund, and her an nual salary amounts to only about $1,500. She is a firm believer In the association, however, where she found aid and com fort when she found herself alone in Washington after the sudden death of her mother, several yearB ago. When she made her contribution she said, laugh ingly: "Perhaps I shouldn't do this in view of the bill pending in Congress that may end my civil service days in a year or two." Contributions Paid in Quarters. One fact which the campaigners are doing their utmost to make plain to the subscribers is that the contributions are payable in quarterly sums?not a lump sum?on the following dates: One fourth of the total amount subscribed July 1, 1912; one-fourth January 1. 191S; one-fourth July 1, 1913, and one-fourth January 1, 1914. The payments are made easy in thgs way, and the sub scribers will not feel that large contri butions are a burden. Mrs. Richard Walnwright, wife of Rear Admiral Walnwright. U. S. N.. who has taken a great deal of Interest in the work of the Y. W. C. A., said last night in an interview: "The Young Women's Christian Asso ciation is of great service to youiur airls in this city, who find there what they most need?friends, companionship an* the kind counsel and advice that are so often a ready help in t!me of need. I feel the greatest admiration and respect for the work of the association." Y. W. C. A. Pund Subscriptions. The following subscriptions have been made to the Y. W. C.

EARL'S COURT EXHIBITION New London Club, Called "The No bodies," for Professional People. DEMANDS OF CH0BTT8 GIRLS Papyrus Supposed to Be Over 1,500 Years Old Becently Deposited in British Museum. Special Cablegram to The Star. LONDON, May 4.?"Shakespeare's Eng land" exhibition opens at Earl's Court Thursday next with a wonderful old fashioned collection of Tudor mansion, theaters, churches, maypoles, bowling greens and tilting lists as they were to be seen four centuries ago, in the midst of modern London. A visitor to the place yesterday found everything practically ready for the public. Here were copies of Shakespeare's house and Ann Hatha way's cottage, and scores of Elizabethan houses in timber and plaster, the appear ance of which in little narrow winding streets transports the visitor at once into an atmosphere of days centuries agone. The network of alleys Is so intricate that Mrs. George Cornwallls West, the organ izer of the pageant. Intends to form a corps of boy guides and girl guides to show visitors their way about. From this picturesque bit of old Eng land one suddenly passes to the spectacle of Plymouth harbor, for the present waterless, but already containing the model of Drake's ship, the Revenge, which is to be one of the great fea tures of the exhibition. The Globe Theater, near by, is almost completed, and the work of transforming the Wel come Club into the Mermaid Tavern is going on rapidly. What with Bartholomew Pair, the con certs In the Fortune Theater tourneys, balls, court pageants, and the revival of sixteenth century life in all its most at tractive aspects, the program of festivi ties during the six months it will be thrown open to the public is an unusually long one. The fixtures that have so far been definitely settled comprise the fol lowing: May 9?Opening of the exhibition. June 4. 11, 17 and July 16 and 23? Floral balls In the Empress hall. ? June 2T?Venetian ball. July 11?Elizabethan Tourney. At the big Venetian ball there will be sufficient accommodation for 8,000 mas queraders, and an interlude is to be given by a special troupe of dancers from Paris. As regards the tourney which Lord Crichton. with the collaboration of Lord Lonsdale and other distinguished people, is arranging, the whole spectacle will be reproduced with exact fidelity, just as it was held in Elizabeth's time. There will be "lists"?that Is, a partition extend ing along and dividing the open space in which the Jousts will take place on either side with their "esquires" in close at tendance. and the inevitable jester on horseback cantering around and poking fun. The tournament Is to be held at nig**, and ViscountesB Curzon. who has been chosen "queen," will confer awards upon the victors. The five floral balls that are being ar ranged are each called after a flower mentioned in one of Shakespeare's plays Thus the first of the series has been named the "Love in Idleness Dance," from a passage in "A Midsummer Night's Dream." and for this dance pansies will be the scheme of decoration throughout Another ball will be a "Marigold dance. "The Nobodies"?a New Club. "The Nobodies" is the curious title of a club which has recently been formed Jn the West End of London. Its mem bership is open to "all professional people of both sexes, and all educated persons of every nationality and race. Prof. Bickerton. the scientist, who is temporary chairman of the new body, ex plained last night that the object is the promotion of racial amity. "It originated," said the professor, "with the races congress held at the Cax ton Hall six or seven months ago. There was a feeling that It was desirable to get people of Importance and position among the members, but it was realized that the educated residents from all parts of the world neither rich in coin nor in d stinction most needed the aid of such an association. So, as a contrast to the first idea, the name of 'Nobodies sug gested Itself as a title for the club. It is intended as far aa possible that membership shall serve as an intro duction. thus breaking down the cliques that exist in most of the ordi nary clubs. Lectures will frequently be srlven by members of different alities, dealing with the characteristics of the various races. Foreigners, the club promoters sa>, find London the loneliest city in the W"8n? lives, perhaps," remarked the professor, "for a year in a I?ndon flat, and by the end of that time you may only have a nodding acquaintance with a couple of people who have acci dentally Introduced themselves Every one who is a stranger In Lon^nom"f' feel the extreme loneliness of a big London crowd. A sense of mutual sus picion of strangers permeates the Lon don atmosphere." Demands of the Chorus Girls. After the miner It is the chorus girl whose voice la to be heard throughout the land demanding a minimum wage regulation. The interests of the vocal ists are being furthered by the vocal section of the Amalgamated Musicians' Union, which haa Juat circularized all theatrical and music hall managers and agents throughout the country, asking for a minimum wage of $9 for six evening performances and $1 for each matinee. In addition they ask that free rehearsals shall be limited to one week and shall not exceed four hours a day; other rehearsals not exceeding four hours a day, to be paid for at the rste of half salaries for week days and full for Sundays. Two other paragraphs are: Choristers engaged to perform in provincial tours of productions shall be paid their re turn fares to London or the place from which they have been engaged,' and "No commission shall be deducted from the minimum rates. Agents or others desiring commission must obtain it by adding it to the minimum list of prices." BcMifla-i Whispered in Society. It seems probable now that a scandal which has been so much talked about In certain circles of society may be kept out of the courts, after all. Powerful Influence has been brought to bear in certain quarters, and some sort of recon ciliation has been effected between the parties. For some time past a gang of so-called Theosophlats have been operating In tne West End who have no connection with the Theosophlcal Society, which is an esteemed body of people. This gang have been conducting what they are pleased to call religious rites In private houses late at night. For a short time they hired a hall, and charged a half guinea to their dupes for admission to ceremonies of a very peculiar nature, until the owners of the hall learned the character of the rites that went on, when the gang were promptly turned out of the premises. At these gatherings an imitation.of some of the ancient rites connected with worship of certain Egyptian and Greek deities was practieed. and the ceremo nies were largely conducted In total darkness. Some of the ceremonies are said to have been grossly Improper. The gang got a hold over several wealthy women, who had thus let them selves be identified with things which they dared not allow to be made known. Here was the chance for some very ! % ?. * CHEVY CHASE "The Best Suburb of the National Capital" * Chevy Chase Heights Situated on the highest ground in the District of Columbia.

Two brown and tattered sheets of papy rus covered with strange characters in faded ink have just been placed among the oriental manuscripts in the King's Library at the British Museum. They represent the museum's newest?and at the same time oldest?biblical treasure, the "Copti* Biblical Text* in the Dialect of Upper Egypt" Although the manuscript was acquired last year by the museum trustees, the secret has been so well kept that only now. after a thorough examination by ex perts, has any outsider become aware of its importance. The codex, which con sists of 106 leaves, is by far the oldest Known version in Coptic of any portion of the Scriptures, and contains the greater part of the Book of Deuteronomy, the whole of Jonah, and nearly the whole of the Acts of the Apostles. Its chief in terest lies in the proof it affords that the Egyptian Christians possessed a Bible in their own tongue before the end of the fourth century. t. 4 Authorities on the subject of biblical manuscripts regard the discovery of the book as mysterious. All that is told is that it was not found by European ex cavators. but was "traded in" by certain natives of upper Egypt, who had prob ably found it either in a grave or ruined church. The former place is the more probable, as the sise of the to?*-*1 inches by 6-^the curious selection of pas sage? and the frayed condition of the leaves suggest that it was niade for Per sonal use rather than to stand on a lec t6"Whatever the use to which It was put" said the authority in question, there can be no doubt that the manu script is between 1,?00 and old. That means it is as old as sion of the Bible we possess, and com parable only with the Codex Vaticanus or Codex Siniatlcus. Its value to tex tual critics must be great, but it will not lead to any sensational revision of the accepted text. The version simply offers fresh proof of theories already held by mThe twKf^iaSn?^the manuscript was one of some difficulty, for, though the papyrus sheets were In *<*>d ?w hlitM the slightest bending caused the brittle ink to fly off. The book ?s, therefor* taken to pieces, and each of the 109 sheets mounted between two pieces of glass. One of the chief aids to assign ing a date to the codex Is afforded by passages written in cursive Greek upon the reverse of some of the sheets. YACHT IDLER OVERHAULED. Vessel Soon Will Begin Trip to the St. Lawrence. The steam launch Idler, which reecently was pirrchaseed from its Washington owners by parties at Alexardrla Bay, New York, has undergone a general overhauling at Dean's boatyard at Alex andria and has returned to this city to take on stores and coal preparatory to leaving for the St. Lawrence. While on the railway the hull of the vessel was thoroughly repaired and calked, she received boiler ai*d machinery attention and was put in *&od order for thorough service. As soon as a crew can be ob tained tft take her to her new home, it is stated, she will sail. The trip from this city to the Thousand Islands will be made by the inland water ways as far as New York, but from there she will have to go outside to the mouth of the St. Lawrence. The trtp Is ex pected to require about two weeks. The Idler was formerly emPloy?? i" J*1.? vlcinWy of the Thousand Islands, but was brought to this city about two years fgn snd was employed In excursion work here. During the winter, while JTJ*1* anchor in the harbor she was cut by the ice and started Raking so badly that she was finally taken to the Eastern branch 2E Jut in a shoal dock until arrange ments could be made to haul out and repair her. _ Campaign for Funds Succeeds.
