Navy Yard Outing Committee
Plans Seven Big Days for
City Children.
Seven big days at Camp Good Will,
one each -week for seven weeks will be
conducted this year by the navy yard
outing committee, as the Tesult of a
vote taken at the committee meeting
last evening. The committee met In
the office of Congressman- Hughes of.
"West Virginia and, after debate over
the seven separate days and one con
tinuous week propositions decided In
favor of the seven big. but not suc
cessive days.
Last year, the navy yard committee
paid for the upkeep of Camp Good Will
for a week. This year it will bear the
expenses on each of the seven days it
has charge, and this plan will result in
more tired children getting outings,
though not for so long a time.
B. P. Donnelly presided at the com
mittee meeting. The dates at Camp
cltrA Will will nnt h phosen until
some time In June. On May 30, the
navy yard outing committee will have
charge of the flag-raising at the formal
opening of the camp, flag and flagstal
being the gift of the navy yard men.

ahead of the time originally planned
and announced.
The smallest grade children In the
schools were the first to appear this
afternoon. Out swarmed the first grade
pupils, and assuming positions on the
great checkerboard which had been
marked off on tho field, began the danc
from the Humperdlnck opera. "Let
your hands go clap, clap, clap," sang
the children, suiting the action to the
word. And then their feet went tap.

Nine hundred second grade boys and
girls followed the first graders on the

You Can Live to
Be a Hundred
If Yon Are Careful of Your Health.
Everything you eat or drink, whether
normal or to excess, turns into nourish
ment and poison. Upon the proper dis
charge of the poisonous matter depends
your health and long life. If the sys
tem becomes sluggish and inactive you
have got to help it out. Some remedy
is necessary to cleanse your body. What
shall It be? You must be careful of
cathartics, whose greatest value is in
their advertising. You must select a
remedy which is especially designed to
assist Nature In this important task. A
new and scientific combination, called
Hunyadi Janos Pills, has just now been
placed on the market. The owners have
the word of eminent physicians and
scientists that this combination is the
most perfect, gentlest and most sensible
remedy for Stomach and Liver Disor

economy is in the small quantity which

of them. The program calls for their
dancing of "The Danish Dance of
Greeting." the "Shoemaker's Dance,"
and "The Merry-go-round."
One of' the big events of the afternoon
was duo to come next. This Is the
shuttle race. In which ten team of.
girls, sixteen to a team, representing
the nine divisions and the Normal
School, race back and forth in a to-and-fro
relay. Each runner carries a
Bag, gives it to one of her team on the
opposite side of the line, who, in turn,
races across and surrenders it to a
team mate. Number sixteen, fleetest of
foot in the double octet, races for the
finishing line.
Boys, also of the fourth grade, fol
low for a leap frog contest. There are
ten teams of these, too, eight to a
When they have done their Jumping,
the sixth grade boys and girls leave
their seats in the stands to show what
exercise can be got systematically
from "representative exercises," such as
"driving a stake," "hoisting a. sail" and
"hammering a nail.' Seven movements
In all were to be done by them.
Dmnb-Bell Drill Last.
The fifth grade pupils follow the
sixth. Recess games, like "Switch,"
"Roll Ball," "Cat and Mouse." and
"Dodge Ball," are played by them, and
they give way to more sixth-graders,
SCO in number, who dance more folk
dances. The seventh grade pupils now
put on one of the big mass drills. Nine
hundred do a wand drill, and they are
followed by seventh and eighth grade
athletics. In which are included a a0
yard dash, with nine boys running, one
picked from each division. Then there
are a relay race of teams representing
each of the great geographical sections
of the city and a straddle ball race,
which has listed nine teams of fourteen
boys each. The mass dumb-bell drill,
with 900 participants, by the eighth,
grade, brings the program to a close.
Different colors were assigned the
several divisions, and cheering, by
young treble voices, of division repre-i
sentatlvcs in the various contests would
have been worthy of older "rooters."
