Detective Sergt. Richard Felber reported that the two boys had gone into the Anacostia woods to hunt frogs and that they had shot two when they came on Elwood playing in the tree.

Antelope of this type rarely grow more than 22 inches tall. Zoo officials said the word “klip springer” comes from the Dutch and means cliff jumpers. The French call them rock jumpers. The animals have been placed in the paddock adjoining the antelope building. Regular Diet of Horse Meat Solves Rationing at Zoo Carnivorous animals at the Na- i tional Zoological Park here will not be affected by “meatless days”—at least not as long as horse meat re mains off the ration lists. Dr. William Mann, director ot Washingtons Zoo, revealed today that meat eaters at the Zoo have been on a diet of horse meat for the last two years, and that since imports from Europe and the Orient have been curtailed or cut off entirely substitute rations for some of the more delicate birds fcnd animals have been found. Zoo officials say that horse meat was used for many years at the Zoo, but was discontinued when prices "sky-rocketed” in about 1930. Then, it was explained, it was cheaper to buy beef. . Commenting on a report thjit the Bronx Zoo recently has placed its carnivorous animals upon a horse meat diet, Dr. Mann said: j ' “We are very modest at the Zoo here, but in all modesty I can say that where we lead, others follow. We have been feeding a diet of horse meat now for the last two years. “There was a tinie, back during the depression, when beef became cheaper than horse meat and we fed it then, but since then we have been feeding horse meat almost entirely.” Dr. Mann said that the Zoo’s meat diets were purchased from an East ern dealer and therefore no trans Y portation difficulties are expected. “We once tried a Western dealer,” he said, “but the delivery was so slow that we made no further attempts to get meat from the West.” The fact that supplies of ant eggs used to feed birds, formerly ob tained from Japan and Northern Europe, have been cut off, also has failed to bother Zoo officials here. Dr. Mann revealed that the Zoo now is raising meal worms for its birds and caterpillars for birds and lizards. Another imported bird .food hemp seed—used as the basis for almost all bird seed mixtures, also has become scarce due to the war, and Zoo officials are trying out va rious types of American-grown grass seeds as-substitutes. ‘‘We still are getting about 15 per cent of the amount of fresh bananas We once used,” Dr. Mann said, “and these we are feeding to the more delicate animals and birds that de nfand a banana diet. For the last four or five months, however, we have been getting dried bananas in 75-pound drums.” Dr. Mann said that recently he had heard from the director of a zoo in Scotland and that the English were feeding their birds a diet of carrots and boiled potatoes. He added that the Zoo here has been feeding potatoes for some time. Dr. Mann said that so far, none of the diet had caused any ill ef fects on inmates at the Zoo.

A Congress Backers Of National Lottery Press for Action Knutson Asserts Most People Would Prefer It to Sales Tax By the Associated Press. Based on the contention that a Nation that uses a lottery to draft its men for war shouldn’t object to the same method for helping to finance the struggle, a drive for a national lottery law was under way today on Capitol Hill. Representatives Knutson, Repub lican, of Minnesota and Sabath, Democrat, of Illinois, authors of legislation to raise money through Government - sponsored lotteries, said the apparent need for more revenue had revived chances of fa vorable consideration for their bills. A member of the Ways and Means Committee, which is responsible for tax legislation in the House, Mr. Knutson said he would press for inclusion of his proposal in any new tax bill the Treasury requests. Sec awtary MorgsMUau mdttateaearlier this week he would ask Congress to raise an additional $6,000,000,000 as *0$* as the present tax bill is out of the way. $100,000 First Prize Set. “It’s either a sales tax or a lot tery," said Mr. Knutson, adding that of the two he believed the people generally would prefer the lottery. A lottery, he said, would raise just as miirh mnnpu onH criim tho payers a chance to get some of it back. Mr. Knutson estimated his plan would yield around a billion dollars a year. There would be more than 140.000 monthly winners under the Knutson system, the prizes being distributed as follows for each $100,000,000 of gross receipts: First prize, $100,000; four $50,000 prizes, eight $25,000 awards. 50 $10,000 prizes, 100 $5,000 returns, 1,000 awards of $1,000 each, 10.000 of $500 each, 30,000 of $250 each and 100,000 of $100 each. Tickets, handled through the Treasury and Post Office Depart ments, would cost $2 each, with half share tickets available for $1. One half of the value of a prize worth $1,000 could be paid in Government bonds. Church Opposition Scored. There would be more winners un der the proposal offered by Mr. Sabath, who is chairman of the Rules Committee. For every billion $1 tickets sold there would be 2,223. 832 winning ticketholders, and they would split $125,000,000 in cash and $250,000,000 in 20-year war loan certificates. Top prize under the Sabath plan would be $62,500 in cash. The high est certificate award would be $125,000. Every one who bought a ticket would get something back, one-eighth of the gross amount of the sales being distributed among holders of non-winning tickets in the form of loan certificates. Principal objection to the lottery, Mr. Sabath said, likely will come from church groups. But, he added, some of these objections lack sin cerity because the objectors in many i cases themselves participate “in j bingos and raffles for church bene fits, and these things are nothing j Kilt fnvmn /\9 mKlino.

The traffic director explained that under a new plan space immediately in front of the station is used for loading and unloading taxicabs and private cars.

Farmer Shares Bumper Harvest With Army By the Associated Press. SEATTLE. Oct. 9.—A Woodlnville farmer, Mark Anthony, decided he had harvested enough of his 23 acre crop to cover his year’s work, so—why not turn the rest over to the Army? He called Edward M.
