WILL BE BROADCAST Ceremonies of Secret Societies of Red Men Will Be Sung by Assiniboines, You may clamp on your ear phone* next Monday afternoon, close your eyes and imagine your self seated be side an Indian camp fire In the Mon tana mountains, witness of one of the weirdest and most picturesque of the mysterious ceremonies which took place inside the circles of the secret societies of the red men. Two native Assiniboines who as boys listened to some of the rites of their warlike fathers will reproduce the songs, with war drum accompani ment, over WRC at 3 p.m. This fea > ture lias been arranged by Miss Frances Densmore. the world’s fore most expert on Indian music, under direction of the Smithsonian Institu tion. It will be the first time these songs ever have been sung outside the lodges of the tribe itself. Relies of the Past. The two singers. Black Owl and Spotted Eagle, now are in Washing ton on business. They will sing the war songs of the Strong Heart So ciety and the songs of the sun dance and grass dance. All these ceremonies are relics of the past, since the As siniboines now are among the most cultured of American Indian tribes. The songs of the Strong Heart So ciety will be rendered by Black Owl. in business life James Archdale. He is the son of a celebrated Assiniboine medicine man and inherited from his father his knowledge of the tribal music. Spotted Eagle, otherwise George Connor, will sing the accom paniments of the two dances. After the radio performance Miss Densmore will attempt to record on a phonograph the peculiar music of the selections and afterward produce them in notation. The songs of the Strong Heart So ciety were intended especially to in cite to acts of bravery. The society usually occupied four lodges near the center of every village. There the young warriors of the village would assemble every morning at sunrise and go out on their adventures in parties of four. Two carried rattles and two bows. Each party was sup posed to return with a dog belonging to some prominent warrior of the village—a pet dog. if possible. The carcasses were brought back, roasted and eaten. Objects of Ceremony. This ceremony had two objects. It cultivated the ingenuity and tested the bravery of the young men, for the dog owners were not always con tent to see their favorite animals shot. It tested and strengthened the patience and forebearance of the owners. Each owner was invited to the banquet to feast on his own dog. If he accepted, it was considered proof that he had not lost caste as a warrior When it Is considered that certain dogs were almost as dear to their owners as members of their own families the amount of fortitude re quired is seen. This was part of the horseplay of the society. It had elaborate cere monials in which the iniates were subjected to the great est of physical agony and mental anguish as tests. The full member was accorded a war bonnet, elaborately decorated, as a sign of bravery. This he could wear until he was known to have been guilty of some act of cowardice, when it was taken away from him and he was disgraced for the rest of his life.

Who Are Completing Fellowships. Ky ContniidxtPtl Press. ROCHESTER, Minn.. May 24 —The civil war pave Rochester the Mayo fam ily and set this typical small Minnesota town on the way to its present un rivaled position as the surgical cen ter of the world—the mecca for the ailing of almost all lands, with Billy Sunday the latest of its celebrated patients. And within the next month ihe Mayo clinic will fulfill its newest mission, when a group of young surgeons will complete their clinical fellowships and scatter throughout the country to practice their profes sion as finally rounded out by three years of training here. It is as a public Institution, direct ing research into the cause and pre vention of disease, training leaders of the medical profession and giving clinical assistance to aJI who. need it, that the Mayo clinic reveals Itself in its best light to its founders, Dr. William J. and Dr Charles Mayo. But the whole thing started back in the ’6os when Dr. W. W. Mayo, re cently from England, was sent to Rochester, as a member of the federal surgeon general's staff, to head the medical staff in the training camp lo cated here. The war passed and Dr. Mavo remained. His two sons grew In the medical profession here, and they too. stayed. Now 60.000 persons a year go through the Mayo clinic, started twenty-five years ago by the two voung doctors. They had commenced In 1893 to di%nde their earnings. oO per cent going into a special fund and so per cent going to the doctors for living expenses. In 1914. when this fund had grown to j 1.500,000, the Drs.

This is controlled by a board of trustees, on which the Mayo brothers have but two of the seven teen votes. Found 200 Fellowships, Under the foundation 200 fellow ships have been created, th from all parts of the world filling them as students. Fellows must be graduates of medical colleges and have had their internships. They then spend from three to five years In intensive study and practice und*i the staff of more than 100 medtcra.l and surgical specialists connected with the clinic. While now largely a public Institu tion. the Mayo clinic retains its color ful aspects. Among the hundreds who daily pass through the Jnstltu tion are seen Indians in their native regalia, a Chinaman or two; men and women of culture; an occasional weatherbeaten cow puncher in. weal em accoutrements. Race, creed color, previous condition of servitude, wealth, position, all go by the board In this institution, where each per son receives attention befitting his ailment, not his pooketbook. Seek to Aid Students. “The institution has grown beyond my brother and myself,” Dr. William Mayo, declares a bit proudly. “We find it hard keeping up with some of the younger oncoming doctors. That Justifies our consistent policy of pick ing helpers who we think to be al ways a little better than ourselves. If only we can be of help by passing on to the younger men our findings, and keep them from mAing the mis takes we have made In years of deal ing with the thost delicate probleme of life, then the younger men can grow from our shoulder* and give to the people the benefit.” PLAN BAND CONCERTS.

PRESIDENT AMONG THOUSANDS AT OPENING OF COUNTRY CLUB Diplomatic and Social Leaders Take Part in Gala Affair at Beautiful New Congressional Club. The Prejident and Mrs. Coolldge were the special guests of the Congres sional Country Club at the opening last night, when thousands of guests, representative of the administration circle, both houses of Congress, diplo matic representatives from all over the world and society folk from Washington. New York, Baltimore, Philadelphia and other cities, were there to greet them. The event could better be called a fete than a reception, a real receiving line ceasing with the arrival of the : President and Mrs. Coolldge at a little after 6 o’clock, when they were greeted by the president of the club, former Representative Joseph H. Himes; the vice president. Senator Ceorge H. I Moses; Col. K. Bester Jones, director of the coast and geodetic survey and chairman of finance committee of the club, and Judge Oscar JO. Bland of the I nited States Court of Customs Ap peals, all of whom were accompanied by their wives. President Dines at (lob. The entrance of the President’s car on the grounds of the club was greeted by an ovation, the Marine Band being drawn up before the club house to play its usual welcome of "Hail to the Chief.” The president of the club was at the entrance to greet Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge, who im mediately made an inspection tour of the club, and later dined with its officers in the President’s suite, an elegantly appointed feature of the club set aside especially for the use of tlie President of the United States. Following the dinner the President and Mrs. Coolldge made another trip over the clubhouse and the broad ter races surrounding it, and when they left, at about 1>:30 o’clock, they were greeted on the highway by miles of automobiles, lining the winding road way, closely parked on one side to admit of the passage of the presi dential car and the secret service men accompanying them. Highways I.ined With Cars. The vast company of Invited and uninvited guests were on their way to and from the club from sunset to early morning hours, theme .seldom being less than two miles of automo biles of every type strung along the road while many, eager to see the President and Mrs. Coolldge, left their cars a mile from the club, and men in evening clothes and women in filmy gowns and wraps and dancing slippers walked on the edge of the dusty road to the clubhouse. The scene from afar was that of a great amusement place, the million-dollar club buildings and other adjoining buildings, the grounds and the high way being illuminated, while the sev eral thousand cars parked on the golf course and in ne>arby orchards j extended the vision of darling lights, giving the impression of a town in gala mood rather than the opening of a country club. Every - available inch of floor space was covered by the teeming mass of guests, only a few having the courgae to try a dance step in the crowded ballroom floor or even on the ter races. Flowers in great profusion were everywhere in evidence and on the long banquet table set on the lower floor from which light refresh ments were served, there were bowls and vases of the rarest blossoms. The President's flag and the Stars and Stripes were placed in the presi dential suite. Three Bands and Orchestra Flay. The Marine Band in full force, the Army Band, the Navy Band and the Le Paradis Orchestra furnished music and though they all frequently play ed at once the building Is so massive in construction that there was not at any time a clash of notes. Without a previous tryout in handling an unexpected mass of thousands of persons, the arrival and departure of guests was conducted in almost faultless manner, dozens of marines and sailors being stationed along the roadway into the club grounds and on the highway to as sist in directing traffic. There were many ditched cars, but scarcely a one of them damaged, and no casual ties worth mention. Company DiveniDnl.
