PELICAN IS MENACE
TO FISHING IN GULF
Texas May Place Bounty on
Austlln, Texas.—Market fishermen
en the gulf coast of Texas are facing
a pelican problem. They have brought
it to the legislature In the hope that fc
law may be passed that will solve it.
The question Is a controversial one
and revolves around the difference of
opinion as to whether the pelicans
really deplete the waters of the bays
and gulf of marketable flsh to any
The National Association of Audu-
bon Societies has taken a band in the
dispute and la opposing any legislate
that seeks to bring about the exter-
mination of the pelican, asserting that
it Is a harmless salt-water fowl.
This organisation cites the results
of an investigation made by the fed-
eral food administration In 1919, which
reported that there were In that year
only 5,000 pelicans on the coast of
The market fishermen ridicule, this
statement. They assert that 100,000
pelicans would be a low estimate of
the number that constantly feed upon
fish In the waters of the gulf border-
log Texas, and that nearly 5,000 of
the fowls can be counted any time on
Pelican Island In Pass Caavallo, to
say nothing of the thousands of oth-
ers that mjrtft&beir home upon other
Islands and We mainland.
Average for Eaoh Pelican.
An experiment conducted by Col.
William O. Sterret, when he was state
game commissioner, showed that each
pelican patches an overage of 1,060
pounds ot marketable flsh a year. If
there are 100,000 pelicans, they con-
sume a total of 106,000,000 pounds of
flsh annually, If Sterrett's estimate
was correct, It is pointed out. That
means approximately 25 pounds of flsh
per capita of the people of Texas.
When the bill of Representative H.
W. Wells of Edna, providing for the
payment of a bounty on pelicans and
pelican eggs, came before the house,
It provoked earnest and at times hu-
The measure was passed by the
house and, it is expected, It will meet
with little opposition in the senate. It
provides that the state shall pay 25
cents for each pelican killed and 5
cents for each pelican egg destroyed.
Each bounty claim shall be accompa-
nied by a piece of the upper part of
the pelican's bill, not less than four
inches long, as proof that the fowl
was killed. No proof of the destruc-
tion of the eggs Is provided for, _
$2 for Eaeh Porpoise Killed.
The same bill contains a provision
for the payment of a bounty of $2
for each porpoise killed and that the
proof shall be four inches of the tail
of each porpoise. It is claimed that
porpoises are also great enemies of
the market fishing industry, as they
eat many flsh.
Men who have made a study of the
habits of the pelican declare that they
gorge themselves and their young with
flsh, that the pouch which they load
with fish Is of enormous size, and that
the fowls are as much of a pest to the
fishing Industry as the boll weevil Is
to the cotton Industry.
The views of these men, however,
are contrary to the findings of Dr.
Hugh M. Smith, chief of the United
States flsh commission, who said that
on a trip which he made to the gulf
coast for the purpose of Investigating
the reported depredations of pelicans
he collected pell£ ns all along the
coast and the only fish he found In
their pouches was the menhaden, a
flsh which Is not used for human con-
sumption. In Florida, in 1918, he ex-
amined 3,428 specimens Of the flsh
which were disgorged by pelicans and
only 27 individual flsh were of a kind
ever sold In the markets for food.

"Bath a Week" for All
Berlin.—Reviving the slogan, "A
'bath a week for every German," de-
vised by Prof. Oscar Lassar in the
days when Berlin had more beautiful

for Free Public Baths has begun a
campaign for more swimming pools
and bathing beaches.
Even today, the society reports,
there are millions of persons In Ger-

AGE-OLD GARMENT IS
FOUND IN PEAT BED
Finds Only 612 Are
Berlin. — Descendants of Martin
Luther are by no means as numerous
as It is generally believed.
According to Rev. Otto Satorlus of
Dankmarshausen, in Thurlngla, him-
self an offspring of Luther, who after
long and careful research has brought
Nobbes "Genealogical Luther Alma-
nac" up to date, there are 612 Uvlng
descendants of the reformer.
None of them, however, carry their
•great progenitor's name.
Of theologians, who formerly con-
stituted the majority of the progeny,
there are today only three, while thir-
ty-six are business men, twelve farm-
ers and nine engineers.
The present-day descendants are
scattered all over the world, one even
being a resident of Japan and having
a Japanese wife. All the children of
this couple married Japanese.
Woman Mayor Opposes
Title of "Bull Cook"
'Seattle, Wash. — The time-honored
nomenclature of the logging and lum-
ber camps of the Northwest appeared
seriously threatened when Mayor
Bertha K. Landes had before her for
signature an ordinance creating the
Job of "bull cook" at the Skagit hy-
dro-electric development project
„ "It seems," declared the mayor,
"tlwt the council could have adopted
a title suggesting some degree of dig-
nity, If not culture."
She signed the ordinance, but de-
clared such a name and others in gen-
eral use should be made over. Bull
cooks, chokermen, falters, hookers,
teeters, punks, backers, and king rid-

Pollen on Woolen Garment
Reveals Its Antiquity.
Stockholm, Sweden.—A woolen man-
tle, worn In Sweden when the early
pharaohs still reigned In Egypt, has
had Its age approximately determined
by a curious combination of botanical
and geological knowledge, through
the researches of Dr. Lennart von
Post of the Museum of National An-
tiquities here. The garment was found
burled at a depth of several feet In a
peat bed In the district of Vustergot-
iand, earefully folded up and weighted
down with three stones, but with noth-
ing about it to indicate how It got
Its similarity to Bronne age gar-
ments from Denmark and elsewhere
suggested Its antiquity. The fact that
It hud evidently not been burled, but
had lain in Its hiding place while
the moss grew over it to form about
five feet of peat, was further evidence
of great age. The acid water of the
bog had preserved it from decay dur-
ing the centuries.
Pollen Grains Key to Aga
Dr. von Post found the key to Its
age In the pollen grains that were
thick in muddy particles clinging to
the fabric. Most Important among
the species represented were oak, lin-
den and elm, with pine, birch and
alder and hazelnut as the principal
shrub. Exact counts showed that the
proportion of the pollen from the oak-
llnden-elm forest was larger than It
would be In Swedish springtime
"pollen rain" of today, Indicating the
existence of a milder climate In the
north at the time the mantle was laid
Such a mild climate Is known from
geological evidences to have followed
shortly after the disappearance of tbe
last patches of glacial Ice in the south
of Sweden, at about the time when
the new Stone age was giving way to
the age of bronze In that country. It
was followed by a period of severer
climate, ushering In the Iron age.
This mlld-cUmate pollen thus deter-
mines the former owner of the man-
tle, who so carefully folded It up and
hid It under three stones In a ditch,
as a man of the early Bronze age.
Dagger Holes Revealed.
The careful workmanship of the
weaver, who made the cloth out of a
mixture of fine wool and the hair of
game animals, probably deer, is de-
scribed by Emelle von Walterstorff,
and the possible romantic history of
the garment, which has a number' of
dagger boles Jabbed through It, Is
hinted at by Sune Lundquist. Mr.
Lundquist states also that the toga of
the Romans was qilite similar in
shape to these elliptical Bronze age
mantles, though differing in size and
manner of wearing. A shorter Roman
cloak, the "trabea,** worn largely by
priests and soldiers, was even more

"I should Imagine," said Dorothy,
"that there would be a great deal left
over at the end of each day. There
couldn't be enough people shopping to
buy all these things. And there are
so many vegetables and meats and
provisions which should be bought to-
"Well.* said Douglas, after a mo-
ment, "I don't wonder Dorothy Is In-

"How exciting," said Dorothy. "We

pen," she added, "In this city. We

They looked then about the building
which was like a magic place to the
children. Everything was cooked,
made, lighted by electricity. It seemed
as if all one had to do was to press
a button, say "Hlgh-cock-a-lorum" or
some magic word and something hap-
pened as If In a dream.
There was a stove which cooked de-
licious things to eat, by electricity.
There were Irons to dry clothes in the
same way, and electricity for sweep-
ing—heating—lighting — everything of
which one could think, it uppeared.
Later, when It grew dark, they saw
the building lighted up. How unreal
It all seemed!
After they had left and were on
their way along the street they passed
the home of Washington Irving—who
wrote of the days when New York
was young, and there still were fields
and rough roads—and no shiny pave-
ments and crowded streets. His home,
so quaint standing there in the halF"
darkness, gave Douglas a queer feel-
"Do you know, I feel like Rip Van
Winkle." he said. "I feel as if I had
been asleep for twenty years and had
Just awakened to see all these won-

buildings and subways."
"You see," explained Uncle John,

Winkle was a character In a story by
Irving—whose house we have been
looking at Old Rip went to sleep for
twenty years, and Douglas feels us If
he had been asleep that long."
