Fisheries Bureau
Feeds Locusts to
Fish at Aquarium
Commissioner Bell Tells
Employes to Gather in•
sects to Cut Food Bill.
By the Associated Press.
The Bureau of Fisheries bobbed up
today with a bright idea for utilizing
the 17-year locusts now pestering in
many parts of the East.
Commissioner Frank T. Bell ordered
bureau employes to collect as many
(u they could and feed them to Gov
ernment fish, thus economizing in
£the fish food bill.
£ The idea originated with Fred Gr
ainger, chief of the bureau's aquarium
jhere. •
"Sunday afternoon,” he said, "I was
' trying to take a nap at home, but
'the droning of these locusts kept me
awake."
Unable to stand the noise any long
er, Orsinger leaped from his bed, went
out into the yard and gathered a hand
ful of locusts off the gram.
“The next day,” he said, "I took
them down to the aquarium and tried
one out on a trout. The fish jumped
out of the water to snap the locust
out of my hand. I knew I had some
thing trout liked.”

LOCUST NOTES.
HE locusts which were here In
1919 may not have known it,
but they laid a lot of Wayside
items as well as eggs before it
was time for them to die.
One of the items concerns a woman
who called a plumber to find a leak
in a water pipe in one of .the walls of
her home. She could hear it very
plainly.
“Those are locusts, the locusts,
lady," he told her after using a pro
fessional ear on her problem.
The other is about two women who
stopped at a garage in Kensington,
Md., yesterday to have a “terrible
noise” in the car checked. One of the
old 1919 locusts had laid that noise,
too. The mean thing!

REALISM
"D. O. T. C. boys at the University of
Maryland do not believe in taking
their drills too seriously.
You recall the Wayside story of the
boy with the alarm clock in his knap
sack. which went off during an in
spection.
The sequel happened during the an
nual competitive drill. The regiment
wras "at rest” and a calm descended
over the field. Maj. Gen. Bowley.
commander of the 3rd Corps Area, and
his staff, in all their dignity, were
facing the troops.
Suddenly there was a bang and a
puff of smoke rose from one of the
student soldiers' rifles. Spectators
tittered, but the troops maintained
their stem rigidity.

AN ADMIRAL without his uniform
is a civilian, unless some one hap
pens to know otherwise, as was illus
trated a few days ago on a Norfolk
bound boat.
A little girl was rolling her ball
; about on the floor of th: saloon w hen
it happened to roll under the chair
of an old gentleman. Our Operative
recognized him as an admiral and
something of a martinet in the bar
gain.
•‘Say!’' the little girl hailed a pair
of protruding legs. that completely
hid the ball, "please get my ball,
won’t you?"
The surprised owner of the legs
looked up from his paper, over his
glasses, into a pair - of blue eyes
under a poke bonnet gone askew.
“It's there!” A pudgy finger point
ed under the admiral's chair. His
eyes followed the direction of the fin
ger and caught the glimpse of the
ball. Leaning forward, he made a
dive for it, but it eluded his grasp
and rolled on.
“There it goes! Quick!” The little
poke bonnet made a dive, too, and
came in collision with the admiral's
bald head. Both were on all fours
by this time. But it was the admiral
who finally came up, hot and trium
phant, with the ball, until he caught
sight of a little group of spectators
gathered around. Then he growled
something couched definitely in the
language of the sea.

GRACIOUS GUEST.
A prominent Washington writer
attended a pre-nuptial bachelor party
the other night and started for home
some time later in the evening, con
siderably the worse for wear. An as

He proved exceedingly anxious to
delay his host as little as possiblle
and he was painfully polite about
it all.
In fact, so great was his haste to
leave the friend’s auto with the least
possible consumption of time, he
opened the door and hurried out at
the first stop and said, “Thank you,
Mr. Doe, for bringing me home."
The stop was at a downtown stop
light.
The same thing occurred three or
four times more before he arrived at
his home.

was standing in front of.

The lock had apparently been

1 Part of the metal casing around the
door jamb lay on the floor and no key
was required to open the door, as
Zioncheck demonstrated this morning.
After admitting his wife and him
self to the apartment, Zioncheck said
the officers chatted a while and left.
Zioneheck's version of his home
coming was substantiated by a police
report made by Officers R. F. Good

precinct. They said they had been
called to the apartment house about
1:30 am. by the resident manager,
a Mr. Crabbs, and that they were

Saddler Dies Famous.

the door to Zioncheck's apartment
looked as though It had been broken
in. When they called the Repre
sentative's attention to it, they said
he pushed the door open with his
hand and walked in.
The officers said they requested the
resident manager to come to the apart
ment, but that he refused and stated
over the telephone that Zioncheck had
subleased the apartment from a
woman and that he knew nothing
about the place having been entered.
Mrs. Young was out of the city to
day and it could not be learned
whether she intends to take legal
steps to evict Zioncheck. Her at
torney, Christopher B. Garnett, said
he had advised her of her rights
under the law about a week ago. but
that he had not heard from his client
since.
The Zioncheck apartment was a bit
upset when he admitted reporters early
this morning. The Representative ex
plained he had not had time to
clean up.
Asked if he intended to move. Zion*
check, stepping over a case of choice
liquor, pointed out that his lease did
not expire until October.
"But well get out, though.” he de
clared, "rather than make a scene If
the landlady insists.”
In Expansive Mood.
The Representative was in a very
expansive mood as he talked. Before
starting his interview he insisted upon
presenting reporters and photographers
with a bottle of rum apiece.
Then Zioncheck mixed a new con
coction—not a "Zioncheck ripper"—
and asked: "Well, now what?”
A few pictures and a word about
his future plans would be appreciated,
it was explained.
Pretty soon, Mrs. Zioncheck smiled
her way into the room and with her
husband sat by the piano and was
photographed in various poses.
Then Zioncheck trundled his bicycle,
which he purchased in the Virgin Is
lands. out into the hallway where he
demonstrated his skill in mounting
and rode a short distance for the
photographers.
"We haven't had breakfast and be
sides I’ve got to get to the office.”

By the Associated Press.
CUMBERLAND, Md., May 38 —
oeru-cncr un a uiaiioinu&iiici »u,wuu
was suspended yesterday on condi
tion that the prisoner pay the widow
of his victim 11,000 on the install
ment plan.
Perry Poland, 47, a mine black
smith, was convicted of manslaughter
in the killing of Charles Knierim, 51.
Judge David A. Robb in Circuit
Court sentenced Poland to serve two
years in the House of Correction.
However, he suspended sentence on
Poland's promise to pay Knierim'a
widow the $1,000 in monthly install
ments.
Poland is to pay $100 down and $15
per month for a period of five years.
He is free on bond of $500 in the
meantime.
Mrs. Knierim was one of 260 per
sons who signed a petition asking the
court for clemency in sentencing
Foland. The prisoner and his victim
had been next-door neighbors at
Woodland for several years. One of
the men, however, dug a ditch to carry
off rainwater, and the other objected
that it would discharge the water on
his land. An argument ensued, and .
then a fight. Knierim died several
days later, after being struck with a
shovel.
