WOMAN SCIENTIST STUDIES RATS
Dr. Helen D, King, after experimenting with more than 21,000 rats
at tho Wistar Institute, has arrived at the conclusion that "in
breeding," instead of harming tho species, improves it Her sug
gestion that the same may bo true of tho human raco has met with
violent protests from clergymen.
STAND ON WEDLOCK
OF CLOSE RELATIVES
Assert Experiments With Rats
Cannot Serve as Basis for
Radical Conclusions on
ROYAL FAMILIES CITED
Possibilities that a revolutionary dis
turbance In tho whole theory of human
marital relationship would occur as a re
sult of the announcement of Dr. Helen
D. King, a research worker In the Wis
tar Institute of Anatomy and Biology at
the University of Pennsylvania, that
through tho Interbreeding of 21 genera
tions of white rats she obtained a race
of rats that was 30 per cent, better
physically than the race she started with,
caused much comment and discussion In
clerical circles In this city yesterday.
Practically none of tho clergymen be
lieved that the announcement would
bring about a change In the statutes
regulating marriage -and prohibiting tho
mar rl ago of close relations. They be
lieved that the entire clvlllied world
would revolt against such marriages and
that the moral code of the world was
too high to even entertain thoughts nf
such marriages, even though science
should provo that they would tend to
produco a superman.
Few of the pastors and prominent di
vines of the city who discussed the ques
tion of relatives Intermarrying believed
that the world would over seriously con
sider the mating of close relatives. And,
while some of them questioned whether
or not the mating of close relatives would
result in a stronger race, as in the case of
the white rats, which Doctor King proud
ly exhibits in Wistar Institute, few
would take Issue with the research worker
since they contended that that was a
matter for medical and scientific experts
to pnBs Judgment upon.
Tho Rev. Dr. William H. Roberts,
stated clerk of the Presbyterian General
Assembly, and one of the most prominent
clergymen In. the United States, said:
"The intermarriage of close relatives
would brlng'about a deterioration of ths
race. The best proof of this are some
of the royal families of Europe. I do not
think there is any danger of a change In
the present marriage system. Civilized
man would revolt against intermarriage
of relations because of that something
within him which controls his conscience.
The Rev. Clarence Edward Macartney,
pastor of the old Arch Street Presbyte
rian Church, said that he did not think
the civilized world would consider the
possibility of the intermarriage of close
"The moral fence," said Mr. Macartney,
"could not be broken down to permit such
a thing. In this country and In other
civilized countries there is too much feel
ing of repulsion against tho intermarriage
of close relatives to permit it to come
with the sanction of the law and the
church. If such a condition should ever
exist, although I am not fearing that
it ever will, all the happiness that comes
through life and the romance that adds
to the Joys of the home would be killed.
Love and romance In the home mean
everything to the proper rearing of the
child. We all know of the unfortunate
condition of children reared In homes tn
which there Is no love between the par
ents. If there was an Indiscriminate in
termarriage of closn relatives the people
would live together like a lot of animals. '

OYSTERS PREPARED WITH
CHEESE A CREOLE DISH
OYSTERS with cheese Isn't a partic
ularly new combination, but there are
way and way of preparing the same. The
devotees of cheese, as a rule, enjoy It In
almost any form, if they like it at all.
This is the favorite dish of old Southern
mammies, a sort of oyster and cheese del
icacy, prepared In old Creole style. The
reclpo will prove well worth trying, and
Is a good one to paste In your chafing

TO SING OPERA HERE
Tamaki Miura, Noted Singer,
Will Take Title Role in
The first appearance In this city of Ta
maki Miura, the noted Japanese lyric
soprano, will be during tho coming en
gagements of the Boston Symphony Or
chestra, when Miss Miura will sing the
title role of Puccini's "Madame Butter
fly." Miss Miura who Is thi first of her race
to win recognition outside her natlvo land.
Is a native of Toklo. She was graduated
with highest honors from tho Toklo Acad
emy of Music. A concert tour of the
principal cities of Japan, In which she
was received with enthusiasm, was fol
lowed by nn engagement at the Imperial
Theatre. After a year's study at Berlin
she made her debut in London as San
tuzza in "Cavallerla Rusttcana" and be
came the sensation of the spring season.
Luisa Vlllanl, the principal dramatla
soprano of the Boston Opera Company,
has tho distinction of having created the
leading feminine roles in several world
premieres, one of which has since proven
to be the artlstla triumph of the last
decade. The first of these was the role
of Ysabeau in the Mascagnl work of that
name, when it was produced in 1913 under
the composer's personal direction at La
Scala, In Milan.
The second was the role of Flori, in
Montemezzl's "The Love of Three Kings."
Since then the soprano has achieved
many noted triumphs for her interpreta
tion of this exacting role, in which sh(
will be heard during the engagement here.
