The kite-flying ban is part of an 1892 law "for the preservation of the public peace and the protection of property within the District of Columbia."

There is a $5 fine for playing football, bandy, shindy or other games with balls or stones in the street. In case you didn' know, bandy is a game similar to field hockey and so is shindy or shinny. "We have a long way to go,' Jacobs told his colleagues bu he pledged to look into the arraj of other prohibitions in the lav, "if only you will help me ge this (kite ban) off the ground.'

ANSWER: Art is very old: Wonderful cave paintings have lasted from about 40,000 years ago; The first artists were hunters, to whom animals were all-important as sources of food, fur and bone. It is thought that the cave paintings, many of which can still be seen, were done as a kind of magic."if you drew a fine buffalo, you had a better chance of killing one next day. But these paintings, in the writer's opinion, have other values, those of art and beauty. They have- beauty-of pattern, of rhythm, an extraordinary sense- of life. See if, in the pictures we illustrate, you can find these qualities in the work of later artists. The Rembrandt picture has a touching human quality, and there is decided rhythm in the arrangement of shapes. Beauty of pattern is very obvious in Ryder's picture, as is the poetic feeling of the moonlight, the boat and the sea. Van Gogh's picture dances with exhilarating rhythm. The forms seem to leap, as the animals leapt across the prehistoric caves in the days when art was born. (Jeffrey Gaines of Kansas City, Mo., wins a prize for this question.
