DENIES EVOLUTION
UPSETS RELIGION
Vienna Theologian Declares
Progression Is Law
. of God.
By the Associated Frees.
VIENNA. July 10. —Theology and
science can live side by side without
conflict, and evolution Is the method
of Divine creation of this world. Dr.
Carl Veth said in giving to the Asso
ciated Press his thoughts regarding
the Scopes trial at Dayton. Tenn.
, Dr. Veth is an eminent author, pro
fessor of .theology at the University
of Vienna, and president of the In
t ternatlonal Institute of Religious Psy
chology.
The Scopes trial has aroused in
tense interest here and is the sub
ject of heated debates in Vienna
sqjioiastic circles.
Dr. Veth said that 20 years ago
he began to read the works of Ernst
Heinrich Haeckel, the celebrated Ger
, man naturalist, who was long re
garded as the foremost supporter of
Darwinism in Germany. At the time,
said Dr. Veth, “the junkers and the
conservatives in Germany were tilled
with dismay at the theory of evolu
tion, as many Americans are today.
“1, too, logt my bearings, but I re
covered quickly and determined to
take nothing on trust. After some
years of scientific investigation I con
cluded evolution is true and I en
tered the field in which during all
these years German theology and
German science have both continued
to labor undeterred for the greater
glory of the Christian faith.
“I feel for those in America whose
< hearts are filled with doubts and who
asked themselves ‘Shall we puzzle our
youths with the two-fold claims of
revealed religion and scientific reve
lations?’
“But I love America as the great
renewer of civilization and I ask her
to anticipate the requirements of her
children 30 years hence.”
FLU STRIKES ALASKA.
p Indians Reported Victims of
Scourge in North.
JUNEAU. Alaska. July 10 OP).—
An influenza epidemic, said to be
similar to a scourge in 1919, when
hundreds of Indians in isolated vil
lages' were stricken and many died,

lages on Bristol Bay. Gov. Parks

Alaska Packers' Association that the

SIDELIGHTS OF TRIAL
By the Associated Press.
DAYTON, Tenn., July 10.—Dudley
Field Malone. New York lawyer and
a member of defense counsel, stood
chatting with a friend on Main street.
A huge man in blue Overalls and
"railroader’s” cap stepped up and ad
dressed him:
“Your name Malone?” asked the big
man.
“Yes, sir,” the New Yorker replied.
“So’s mine,” said the workman and
offered his hand. The lawyer return
ed the vigorous clasp and asked about
the giant's lineage.
’’There were Just two Malones came
over from Ireland." said the Tennes
seean. “I guess we’re all kin.”
“Well, I hope you're not -going to
deny the relationship now." the East
ern man laughed as they parted. “I
h<jpe I'll see you frequently.
Clarence Darrow received an invita
tion to attend the Sunday school class
which William Jennings Bryan will
teach next Sunday morning.
The Chicago lawyer thanked the
preacher who asked him to aAtend,
but declined the invitation.
“I’ll probably be busy about that
time," Darrow said.
One hundred and sixty newspaper
men and women were assigned to
places In the courtroom last night by
a committee of their own number.
The writers and telegraphers will sit
at tables ranged around the rail which
Incloses the court proper. A score of
the press representatives are women.
The courtroom where the evolution
issue will be contested seats approxi
mately 800 persons. Court attendants
plan to accommodate perhaps 200
other spectators by filling corridors
and door spaces with chairs and
benches.
Dayton was filled with visitors but
not excessively crowded as the Scopes
trial started. Rooms in hotels and
homes were occupied, although ac
commodations were still to be obtain
ed from the local committee on re
ception.
FRANK TINNEY HOMESICK;
WIFE WILL FORGIVE HIM
Comedian Who Fled to London
After Follies Girl Escapade
Wants to Come Back.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. July 10.—The New
York American says today that Frank
Tinney, black-faced comedian, who re
cently fled to London from his for
giving wife after an escapade with
Imogene Wilson, former Follies’ girl,
is homesick, broke and ready to come
back, and that his wife will take him
back.
“Why shouldn't I take him back—
my Peck’s bad boy?” she is quoted as
saying. “There are worse men than
Frank. It takes more than liquor to
ruin him. He’s been punished. You
don’t go to hell when you die. You
live and get your reward on this
earth.”
Imogene broke into print when
Tinney was arrested for hitting on the
jaw the girl that Florenz Ziegfeld
glorified.
The grand jury failed to indict the
comedian. To the surprise of all he
fled to London. Imogene fled after
him.
Now, the American says, Tinney
has lost Imogene.

THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON, D. C., FRIDAY, JULY 10. 1925.
The Rhea County jail alone was
empty. Jailer Bruce Harris having
said good-bye to the last of several
mountaineer moonshiners who have
occupy cells in the ancient building.
Dayton is without a calaboose and the
law was without a prisoner here.
The old - fashioned, up - and - down
pump at the entrance of the court
house yielded today to the modern
push button drinking fountain, four of
which were installed yesterday on the
courthouse law'n. Tennesseans who
for years have visited the pump for
exercise and for water today were ex
perimenting with the new devices.
Hundreds greeted Darrow at the
station when he arrived from Chi
cago and scores surged around to
shake-his hand. But no volunteers
appeared to hustle his 200 pounds of
hand baggage.
• Borne one shouted: "Here’s the man
who saved Leopold and Loeb.”
Dawn found glow rising from
pits on the lawn back of the court
house, where slabs of meat were being
barbecued. Southern style, over glow
ing heaps of coals. An improvised
lunchroom, completed yesterday, was
the dispensary for the food.
The town took on a carnival
atmosphere last night. A road show,
which had arranged its schedule to
arrive in Dayton for the trial, sent
Us band through the streets. Giant
street streamers extending across the
throughfare urged the passer-by to
visit various places. Venders cried
their wares. Hot dog stands erected
at convenient alleyways and dotting
the sidewalks w r ere blazoned with
advertising placards. The majority
were completing preparations for the
anticipated rush today.
Some, however, whose sanguine
hopes had not been disturbed by the
possibility of the case heing trans
ferred to the Federal courts already

The loss of valuable papers, deeds, insur

carelessness. We usually have too many
things to think about without having to
worry about the exact location of all our

To prevent loss or misplacement, the safest
thing to do is rent a safe deposit box at one
of our convenient banks. The cost is indeed
small for the service it renders. $3.00 and
