IS LOVER OF BASE BALL
AND AN EXPERT PITCHER
Dr. Ernest L. Jones. Deputy Commis
sioner of Fisheries. May Join
Department Team.
r?t. Krnest l.estir Joins, the new dep
utv commissioner of fisheries. likes other
eitdoor sport- t>? sides fishing. lie is fond
of b,?>? ball, and if he could till I the time
he no doubt would be one of the pitchers
on the Department of Comnier e team.
Dr. Jones at one time was offered a po
sition on the Brooklyn team, but declined
because he does not like professional base
ball. He likes the amateur same.
"Where there is a good amateur game
going on." continued Dr. .fones. "1 al
ways like to be around, and I like to play
the gam?. ft is one of the best outdooi
sports of which 1 know "
Not Afraid of Comment.
When it was s jsc- sted to th^ new deputy
commissioner >-f fisheries that the Depart
ment of Commerce employes might like
him to join their base ball team, if he
didn't think it was below the dignity
of his office for him to get out on the
diamond, he declared he did not care
about any comment which might arise
over an official getting out and taking
part in outdoor sports.
l>r. Jones asserted that he would not
mind playing ball with tiie team if he
had time, and that, if he didn't play,
it was not because he was afraid of com
ment.
Pitching was a strong point o," the new
deputy commissioner when he played
base ball, and It was while pitching in
i n'lfijf names that h" was "discovered"
1> the base ball scouts and offered a po
s'tion on the Brookyn team. He has
played in many college games during the
time he was at Princeton University. He
says he sees every amateur base ball
same he can. but he does not care for
loot ball.

District Audubon Society's
Trips Afield for Observation
and Instruction.
DIFFICULT RUN SECTION
VISITED LAST SATURDAY
One Hundred and Six Different
Species Noted Since Excursions
Began April 24.
The Audubon Society of the District of
Columbia closed its annual series of bird
tr ps la=t Saturday. In the number of
birds seen the hest of former record?
was equaled. while the attendance of per
sons was far ahead of that of any pre
vious year. This is attributed to the
generally increased interest In bird life
and to th? special efforts of the soeioty
to enlist the campfire girls in the cam
paign for bird preservation.
The printed schedule called for the
first excursion the last week in April,
but spring came on so rapidly **nd the
birds arrived so much earlier than usual
that an extra trip was announced for
Saturday. April 19. the earliest date the
society has ever been permitted to sched
ule. On this trip thirty-one persons as
sembled near Benning bridge and saw
fiftv-one kinds of birds during a long
walk. They proceeded to Bladensburg by
way of the western baiiK of the Ana*
costia river, noting as many birds as
would usually be see:i a week later. The
rarest Jind of the day was a Hock of
rusty grackies loitering a week later thap
their usual date of departure for their
northern bleeding grounds, while a pair
of blue-gray gnatcatchers worked indus
triously ornamenting with lichens the
outside of their nearly completed n#st,
oblivious of the score of Held glasses
focuaed on their movements.
First Regular Excursion.
The first regular trip was as usual to
Dyke, Va., and was attended. April 'M,
bv eighty-seven persons?a third more
than had ever been present at any pre
vious outing of the society. The woods
| swarmed with bird students and nature
and the birds united to reward these
devotees. Result: Sixty-five different
species seen during the da v. The two
sure birds most eagerly sought at Dyke,
the yellow-throated warbler and the
Hinston sparrow, were obligingly pres
ent and many a person added the letter
for the tlrst time to their life's bird list.
The firvl of the day. and, indeed, of
this spring's whole series of bird trips,
was the prothonotaiy warbler, a bril
liantlv colored southern warbler, seen
within or near the District only four
times In the past sixty years. A flash
ins bird in high plumage came closs
to the party ;it their lunching place,
and a few minutes later a second was
ifound not far distant.
The next ti !?. May fo::nd more than
iialf a hundred A ud ubenit es plodding;
: tl ioui.li -j f iinm e heat '"Mim Somerset j
toward <ibn Ivnn Junction. A visit was!
paid during 'in- afternoon to the nest
ing site of the ldack-crowned night
lurons at the receiving reservoir. The
colony proved larger than in former
j ears, and the "clock-ticking" in the
trees told of young in the nests. Total:
Seventy-eight persons and seventy-two
species of birds.
The following Saturday, May lO, mark
ed the height of bird migration for 1913,
and the sixty members of the party saw
seventy-eight kinds of birds, a number
exceeded only once in the past eight
years The excursionists visited two of
tl** prettiest places within easy reach of
Washington?Prospect rock, on the banks
of the Potomac, and the mouth of
Scott's run. Among the notable finds
of the day should he mentioned the
? 'ape May warbler, which for twenty
years has been counted a rare prize in
| vVa^tington during the spring migration,
but which th'.s year has been almost
common and lias been reported more
times than in all the pVevlous dozen
years.
Lowering skie- were much in evidence
the morning of May 17. and an hour be
? fore the time s> t for starting a steady
! drizzle began. The remark was made on
the way to the station that if five people
came out a day Mke this, it would show
tbe enthusiasm of th?- typical Audubon
ite. Train time showed thirtv-one persons
present, and as such devotion seemed to
deserve a reward, and the rain still fell
heavily, the whole party was taken to
Miss ("o.ok's "wickiup." at Vfresco. Va.,
and a few hours were pleasantly spent in
an indoor picnic.
Final Trip May 24.
The final tiip of the season was taken,
as stated Saturday. Ma> and. as
usual, the partv went to Difficult inn and
Ore?t Kails, onlv the walk was made
longer than usual in following Diffli-uit
rtiri to i^s mouth before going on to CJreat
Kali*1. Another si<?e trip was also made
beyond Trammels, where the whole party
was treated to an unusually satisfying
view of tiie rare summer tanager. -The
twentj -foui participants saw sixty-two
birds.
On each trip the members separated
into several partie* for the better ob
servation of the birds. Each party was

Hot Air
By WALT MASON
The man who deals in rainbows has come to town by stealth, tc
catch the village vain beaux with tales of sudden wealth. I hear his
gorgeous ravings, his winter dreams and sich:
"Bring me," he says, "your savings, and I will
make you rich; I've coal mines in Nebraska
(where coal does not exist), and peach groves in
Alaska (no peaches there, I wist); the nectarine
and prune shine on trees I have for sale, and 1
can sell you moonshine, so hand me out your
kale." The easy marks are digging their kopecks
from the jar, for hot air, never twigging what
easy marks they are. They hope to rake in rich
es and never pay the price; a sucker always itches
to be a sacrifice. I sidestep such disasters as
these men have in view; to my hard-earned
piasters I stick like patent glue. I cannot be en
chanted by any hot air crank; my coin is safely planted down in the
village bank. I buy no dazzling ophirs a million miles away, no Bel
gian hares or gophers in Persia or Cathay. No fish in the Nyanzas,
no ice plants up in Nome; no ginseng farms in Kansas, no silk works
far from home. I save my clammy rubles till there's a seemly pile
and sidestep lots of troubles, and dance and sing and smile.

senses as 10 which one was the
greatest. Each presented his argu
ment for h?s own importance, but they
could not reacu an agreement and tinally
submitted the case to arbitration.

is shown in the representation of the
five senses. Amusing masks symboli
cal of the senses have been prepared,
and some surprising effects are prom
ised for Friday afternoon. Each of
the senses is supported and typified by
a group of exponents representative of
the particular function. Dances and
songs are interspersed, and in this pro
gram members of the various classes
of the Young "Women's Christian Asso
ciation are now preparing to take part.

impersonated in Friday's program by
Mrs. W. Bowyer Payne, as "Tongue"; I
Miss M. C. Parker, as "Eyes": Miss '
Margaret Blane, as "Nose"; Miss N. I
L'rner. as "Ears." and Miss M. K. Simp
son as "Hands." Miss X. Huff is the
"Herald." under who: e direction the
competition between the senses takes
place.
Other parts of the masque are taken j
as follows: Miss Marguerite Xewkirk
as the sculptor. Miss Helen L. Haas as
the painter and Miss Marie Dancer as
the musician.

CHARGE THAT CLERKS
REFUSE TO PAY DEBTS
President Wilson Advised of
Alleged Abuse of Credit
in Departments.
President Wilson and liis cabinet are to
lie asked to assist in the elimination of
the existing abuses of credit by govern
ment employes, as the result of a de
I cision reached last night by the Retail
Merchants' Association
Within the next day or so a letter is to
be sent to President Wilson calling his
attention to the fact that a large num
ber of government employes are indebt
ed to the merchants of Washington, and
that while many are in a position to meet
their obligations, they refuse to do so.
The President will be asked to instruct
the secretaries of the various departments
to provide means by which merchants
having hills against government clerks
I may have an opportunity to present their
I claims.
Rosenberg- Explains Reason.
M. D. Rosenberg, general counsel <>f the
association, in explaining the necessity
of such a letter, stated that it would be
impossible to obtain relief through an act
of Congress, but that with the co-opera
tion of the heads of the various depart
ments the merchants would probably ob
tain a protection front negligent pur
chasers. which they have not enjoyed in
the past. The President is told In the
letter that the merchants wish the honest
debtor to receive fair treatment. Those
who have assumed debts because of mis
fortune the merchants desire to excuse
for tiie time being. They art* anxious
that means he provided to force the em
i ploye who is able to pay Ins debts to
? do so.
The meeting was called last night for
the purpose of adopting articles of in
corporation. Following the opening of
the meeting by President Stras?burger.
it was moved that the meeting adjourn
sine die. New by-laws and a constitu
tion were then adopted and the incorpo
rated body came into existence. All the
officers of the old organization became
officers in the incorporated body. The
office of second vice president is pro
vided for in the new constitution, but -
the position has not been filled.
Co-Operate in Vocational Guidance.
J The association voted to co-operate
with the Beard of Trade in She appoint
ment of a committee to serve ar? a pa't
>>f a joint committee in i lvestigating the
advisability of establishing a vocational
guidance bureau in Washington. I'pou
the motion of R. P. Andrews. the asso
ciation voted to co-operate with other
organizations in bringing about the en
actment of a law protecting merchants
and others against the giving of bad
checks.
Secretary Columbus reported that the
credit and collection bureau was now
ready to begin operations, and explained
that the members of the association
were entitled to place in the hands of
the bureau debts to be collected. Three
