Washington Entranced With
Game, Which Is Played
in Many Homes
f(Xew Diversion Has Phenotncnal
Hold on All Sort* and Condi-
tion*. From 9teM Senators
tv DudtliiiK Debutantes.
Special to The Globe.
■ WASHINGTON, D. C. May 21.—Mover
j lias the national capital been so com-
T-letely enslaved by the fascinations of a
game, indoor or outdoor, as it has fallen
; (under the seductive influence of the won
jdc-rful new game, which, having set , all
J l^ngland crazy, has come with- a power
' to] stride across the Atlantic to exercise
its potent influence upon our social life.
i As a prominent leader of Washington
I society remarked the other day, "Wash
ington has fairly gone ping-pong mad."
. Conversation in capital society has now
i foe-come impregnated with the peculiar
I terms of the new pastime. Where for
merly one would hear "social precedence"
' and "rising man," one now hears "clever
i (half volleyer" and "invincible striker
I out." '
"Love" and "advantage" as topics of
; social conversation have now a ping-pong
significance entirely foreign to their for
xtx-r meaning among the capital gossips.
The ping-pong party has entirely sup
planted the whist party arid the bridge
The peculiar ping-pong of the celluloid
; balls as they are beaten to and fro (from
■which the game derives its name) is now
to be heard j in every Washington home
from the palatial mansion of the fam
-1 ily of the men who shape the nation's.
I destiny on Pennsylvania avenue to the
• humble residence of the congressional
I bootblack in the eastern section of the
i city. Years are a matter of no consid
; ©ration among the devotees of the sport.
■ The mature matron whose nod or frown
I Oias settled one way or the other the so
cial aspirations of mar.v- a newcomer
.at the capital is as frequently to be seen
i exerting herself in a manner wonderful
to behold, to keep the little swiftly pass- j
ing celluloid ball from dropping on her
I side of the net, as is the beautiful bud
| ding debutante who, with flushed face,
eyes sparkling with enthusiasm- and ex
. citement. and bared arms wildly but
Withal skillfully circling the air, is a
cSaily testimonial to the aethestic features
of the game.
Strike* nil Classes.
. . Nor are the enthusiasts of the new
gam" to be found only among the fairer
sex, - Washington masculinity has given
itself to ping-pong with an abandon
,Nor ar^ the enthusiasts .of the now
which would furnish a profitable study to
the seeker- of pysehologieal phenomena.
Staid congressmen, dignified senators.
Learned members of the bench and bar
When they meet together nowadays dis
cuss not, the political significance of the
lim.s. but the latest-make of ping-pong
This -may be regarded as gross exagger
ation. It is a potent fact, however, that
ping p has attained a surprising vogue
■among Washington's public men.
All the leading hotels and cafes are
hastening to open up ping-pong parlors
on their premises, so that their distin
guished patrons may indulge .to their
heart's content in the game. . •
Senator Maur.a. when asked the other'
■day whether he favored the. erection of aj
ping-pong parlor in the national capital,
l>uckercd up.his brow* and gave the mat
tor a few minutes' serious consideration
before discussing the idea with a smile.
Congressman Sulzer, when asked to ex
plain the tremendous hold that ping-pong
has taken upon members of the-house,
said that it is a wonderful game for~ex
erclse. and gives one a good hand to
sustain the handshaking proclivities of
the vast army of well meaning citizens
| who swoop down upon unwilling repre
sentatives of the people with all the re
lentless energy of the notorious New
Jersey musquito upon its helpless victim.
As may be supposed, the stores have
not been slow to take advantage of the
commercial possibilities of the craze. In
* -addition to the fact that some of the
larger dry goods emporiums are opening
up ping-pong saloons for the accommo
dation of their patrons, the new game
has an important bearing upon the latest
styles. The ping-pong waist is prom
inently- displayed in the shop windows,
find is a phenomenal seller; while the
new forms of neckwear for women and
men bear handsomely embroidered figure.*
■of ping-pong racquets and balls upon
their silken folds.
Doom of the Tight Corset.
One important reform the game prom,
ises to effect, which may render rational,
the development which has been lavished'
upon it by England and America and im
mortalize the new game as one of the
most valuable and beneficent reform fac
tors of the century.
Ping-pong may abolish the tight laced
Ping-pong is essentially an informal
game to be played at the spur of the
moment, as the whim seizes. It is a
game to be introduced by the smiling
hostess after the last vestige of the din
"■ner has been cleared away and ti;o
white table cloth is removed to make
way for the ping-pong net. Consequently
as the rapid movement and freedom of
body S necessary to me ping-pong player
renders the corset impossible, the charm
ing diner out has either to leave off her
corsets when she dresses to attend a
modern dim party or run the risk of
having to stand against the wall in ail
the-prim symmetry of a corseted waist
and, watch the merry movements of her
more fortunate sisters who, with grace
fully swing forms, keep the merry cellu
loid ball ping-ponging across the table
at a lively pace to the intense admira
tion of the man with the racquet on th^
other side of the table and .every other
man In the room. v
This good may ping-pong do; bu other
„ wise what peculiar qualities has the same
to '-rive it phenomenal popularity? Strict
ly speaking it is nothing more or less
then a table adaptation of lawn tennis
and tennis, while possessing to an equal
and even greater degree the same physi
cal benefits and sporting fascinations of
its replica has never attained the vogue
which has been vouchsafed to ping-pong.
Played on Dining Table.
Ping-pong is played on an ordinary din-
Ing table and its only accessories are
posts tp hold the net, the net itself
vellum string or wood-racquets and cellu- ■
loid balls: The game is for two people
one standing on one end of the table,
the other opposite. The player who first
delivers the ball is called the server ■ The
Other the striker out. i The service is
strictly underhand and is delivered from
beyond the end of the table.
£ The: ball served must drop on the table
beyond the net and is then in piav. if
it dops into the net or off the table it
counts to the striker out
The server wins a stroke if the striker
out fails to return the service or ball in
play of the table.
The striker out wins a stroke If the
server fails to return the ball in play or
makes a foul in service.
On either player winning his first stroke
the score la 15. The second stroke brings
the score to 30; the third stroke is called
•40 and the fourth stroke wins a game
The player who wins the first six games
' -wins a set.- -
This is all there really is to the game
of ping-pong. Certainly it Is a skill de
manding and skill acquiring game. It
lias simplicity and cheapness to recom
mend it. It is far better from a hygenie
standpoint than a majority of parlor
prames and is an extremely socialble and
interesting pastime. It is. for these rea
. sons and its similarity to tennis, a game
calculated to prove attractive to the"
. younger members of both sexes. .
: But why It has set the people of two
' countries almost crazy: why old as well
as young-have taken up ping-pong when
they would not as much as look at an-

acquired such a vogue on the other side
that one serious British magazine writer
has accused; English society of being
more interested in the records of ping- j

the British troops in South Africa and
has prophetically croaked of Nero fid

claimed that her ermine cloak was the
handsomest garment ever brought to this

the price of the two garments began
to increase wfih the telling of the sto

Mrs. Walsh's jewels, gowns and laces
are the most superb at the capital. When
she gives charity it is with a lavishness
worthy of Eastern fable. : Where other
women are content to give a hundred

Walsh entertained the Belgian.: minister
