GEORGE. The unusual activity of tbe "E-l" and the 'B-17" in the neighborhood of St. Michael's church and the Louis ville & Nashville station yesterday morning was the occasion of a great deal of comment and interest on the ritreet. The maneuvering of the "ships" was directed by pilots of the lighter than air division of the naval air station, who were endeavoring to secure the most opportune time to shower Ensign and Mrs. Hubert George with the score or bo pounds of rice, which were in the "car." "With the rice went down a flood of congrat ulatory 'messages, for there Is prob ably no more highly regarded officer In the personnel of the air station than Knstgn George. JUNIOR AND JUVENILE MUSIC CLUBS. Tho National Federation of Musical Clubs, an organization which has worked the past 28 years for the rec ognition of American music, given priaes for American compositions, the composers' work a hearing, assisted the young professional artists through state, district and national contests; entertained the soldiers in the can tonments during the past war and gjve them thousands of small musical instruments; done more than any oth"r. organization to establish credits for music in the -chools. Is now or ganizing Junior and juvenile music clubs in the grammar and high schools. The children of today make the adult audiences for our concerts of tomorrow and the National Federa tion of Musical Clubs Is tryinff to teach the American public that there is no better way of seeking to lift the average appreciation of music and to develop the cultural side of the American people than by forming these Junior and Juvenile clubs and teaching the young people to like the best In music and art. Music students often find their lessons flat, stale or unprofitable because of the hours of solitary' labor, with no opportunity to share their Joys and accomplishments with others. A well organized and well conducted club furnishes just the stimulus reeded to carry the work along. . The National Federation of Musical Clubs has issued books of t special programs for these ehfbs. Mrs. j Frances Elliott Clark of Philadelphia, .chairman of the educational depart ment, is author or the pjrograma and suggested order of pivedure and con stitution for the meetings. The boys and grirls conduct their own meetings, which gives them practice In parlia. ment-iry proceedings. The alrr of the Junior and Juvenile mudic clubs is to reach as many young people as possible, in an effort to encourage j them in developing and expressing a love, understanding and appreciation of music In nil lines and Its sister arts, drama, literature, drawing andj the dance. These clubs for yot'ng J students will be a source of much profit to tha.ee who participate In thf work, and of much delight to parents Woman's heme each fortnight, had a complimentary party extended, them yesterday afternoon that proved to be one of the most delightful in the long history of pleasant meetings of the club. The hostesses of this gracious courtesy were Mrs. Edward King, Mrs. T. C. Wilson, Mrs. E. P. Wilson and Mrs. L. II. Smith. The home of Mrs King, at which the ladies entertained, was beautiful, not only within but also the grounds were most attractive with their ba nana trees, oaks, festooned with Spanish moss, and great orange trees, laden with golden fruit. It is always most Interesting for a Pensacolian to visit the site of these homes, as it was In this neighborhood that Andrew Jackson called the first legislative council In Florida. The historic build ing in which that meeting occurred, at the time the residence of the late Dr. John A. Brosnaham, has since burned. Inside, the house, with its great open fire and lovely japonicas and roses, presented a most inviting scene. The seven tables at play were placed in the big living room, which commands a most beautiful view of the upper bay. The brightness of the room within seemed all the cheerier, from the mistiness of the sea without. nic sum was received through the voluntary offerings of the ladies pres ent. It was decided to present this to the ladies of the home to use for individual spending money. An unusual record was made at this meeting, from the fact that every member of the club was present ex cept .one, and she is not now in the city. Among those enjoying this very pleasant meeting were the following ladies from Gull Point and Pensacola: Mrs-. John Cornell, Mrs. Gertrude Ab bey, Mrs. O. II. L. Wernicke, Mrs. J. C.

There Is Immediately a reason and purpose for diligent practice, for "does not the club want me to play something spe cial for a special program?" Mrs. Ralph Polk of Miami, Fla., chairman of junior and juvenile music study clubs, will forward these books to any one Interested. NEWS OF THE PENSACOLA ART SCHOOL.

Mrs. Sam Catches entertained at a pretty little afternoon tea "yesterday when ehe invited in a few friends very informally. Mr. and Mrs. Catches have recently purchased the beautiful bungalow at 1520 N. Eleventh-ave, overlooking Malaga square. The rooms were ' bright with lovely NEW YORK. Feb. 3. Dramatic and humorous experiences are described in the stories Just received here from three American girls who protected the Armenian orphanages in' Kara, Armenia, When the Turkish troops captured that, city in October last. The American young women not only had, to calm the panic-stricken orphans but to fight off Armenian ref ugees who wanted to hide in tha or phanages and Turkish soldiers bent on looting the buildings. One of the girls, Miss Elsie M. Kimball, of Mt. Vernon, N. Y., put to rout, a group of d.Kmt 20 Turks who were attempt ing to steal tho "blankets from the children's beds. She attacked them with a whip and being unarmed they fled. Her two companions were Miss Cora L. Beach, of Ogdensburg, N. Y., and Miss Frances Anderson, of New Canaan, Conn. All three are workers for the Near East Relief which con ducts the orphanages. Misa Kimball tells In her letter of the panicky situation which existed in Kars when the Armenian defense collapsed and word was received that the Turks were coming in. "Just im agine," she writes, "a great mass of 1,000 women and children huddled to. gether in uncontrolable fear, momen tarily expected to be massacred by a conquering army and with absolutely no possibility of escape from what they had reason to believe would be certain death." Miss Kimball had just managed to quiet them when the Turks arrived at the door ofl tho orphanage three vicious-looking soldiers,. "1 ran to them and explained through the Interpreter that I was an American woman and this was an ' American orphanage. Two of the fel lows who were evidently bent on mis- j hieV started toward the building where the children were gathered. I snatched the arm of the other fellow, and begged him to protect the chil dren. Imied lately he ran after the two. soldiers and dealt them ferocious blows with his heavy whip and his gun, cursing them all the way to the gate. They were loathe to go, but he whipped them clear out of sight and I thanked him for his help. Then came more soldiers and I repeated my speeches until I was about worn out when along came a fine-looking Turkish officer. I explained the situ ation to him and asked that Turkish guards be placed at our gates and he put two of his men on guard to police the place. '. "The guards drove back all would be Invaders vigorously and merciless ly with the butts of their guns, their fists and the toes of their shoes. Many of the fellows who oame through our grounds from the open field in the back were the wildest looking indi viduals this wild country could pos sibly produce, and believe me, it pro duces some mighty evil specimens of humanity and in generous quantities. The most treacherous of all are the Kurds, the boldest and most blood thirsty and most ruthless tribe In the Near East. The Turkish guards had their hands full in pushing them back. They regarded me with great curios ity, never having seen an American and my goggles Interested them es- ceedingly. "The tfoooting went on all day, but probably not over 300 people were kill ed altogether in the city and the val ley. Once when I was standing near the gate a shot struck within a few feet of me. It was the closest shave I had that day though other shots were flying all around. 'In making my rounds of the four buildings, I found a Turk rifling one of the rooms of blankets. I yelled at him to 'get out of here quick, Heldy' and to my surprise, he jumped through the window like a shot. leav ing his loot behind. I had not ex pected such quick action for I was alone and he was a big burly man." A little later another-Turkish sol dier held up Miss Kimball at the point of a rifle and compelled her to give him a blanket. "Cora, (Mis Beach) wai the only American in one of the other orphan age buildings last night with bands of Turks knocking at the door at In tervals and prowling about for loot. One rough Turk took hold of her and said 'gel (come) but she made him 'gel' instead. Miss Kimball was hastily summon ed to the orphanage on one occasion by the announcement that a lot of Turks were trying to drag out through the windows the blankets from the beds of the orphans." I grabbed my whip and started out for some trou ble," she writes. "Sureenough there was a gang of about 20 Turks, one at each window, reaching through, for blankets. I was alone. ' I yelled my self hoarse Tieldys' and other things and made a dramatic dash at them with my whip flourishing in the air. Who would have thought they would have paid the leat bit of attention to me? All but one of them made a get-away, some speedily, some reluc tantly, hut the one kept pulling away at the blanket while one of the per sonnel clung to the other end of It. The Turk was getting the upper hand when I gave him a lash right where he ought to be la-shed and he gave up the struggle and Joined his fellows over the fence. That incident was tho most amusing of any that occurred Just to see those looters run away from a woman. "Cora had the nerve to refuse to give up her diamond ring to a looter who came to her orphanage the first HUNGRY? night. She Jtist walked around his gun as cool aa you please and still has- her ring." A crafty Insect is the ant lion which catches ants by trapping them.
