"Ark the Second" is ready for
another deluge that will visit this
: earth In a year or two, according
to beliefs of a religious sect which
baa its headquarters at Olympla,
Washington. A Marquette scout
car visited the Arc recently at its
mooring ground on the Olympla
harbor, and an Interview was ob
tained from the leader of' the
sect, ' -
' William Greenwood, a mill
worker, is playing the role of
Noah In this second expectation
of a deluge. During spare hours
he has built the arc on an old tug
boat hull. He believes it is ready
for what may come, and his prep
arations have included the . begin
ning of a collection of animals. in
pairs dogs, cats, chickens to,
toe. taken along on the misty voyage.
But old salts shake their heads
when viewing the top-heavy con
struction of his unusual craft.
There are three cabins on the
main deck, named the -"Millenium"
room, room of the '"Fallen
Stars" and room of "Eternal
Darkness". The walls are deco-
' rated with stars : and flowers,
painted "in blue and red. Upper
. deck walls are covered with paint
ing' of Cunningham's concep
tions of the Four Horseman jot
the Apocalypse portents of
death, famine, war and pesti
lence. . Cunningham hastily donned' his
official regalia when the Mar
quette visitors arrived. It includ
ed a fringed coat on the order of
the! buckswins worn bv old-time
Injopah scouts, and j a-'. broaji'-l
Dnmmea nat into wnicn naa been
sewed a wig of long, flowing and
somewhat matted hair. Looking
more like the bucolic D'Artignan
when that gentleman first be
strode his bony charger and
clanked down the road, seeking
adventure, Cunningham buckled
on a rusty sword and stuck
long-barreled pistol Into his belt
to complete his costume.
jThe visitors had some difficulty
in necipnenng tne boat s name
plate. It carried the wording
"Arkse Cond" the latter being
written under the first word
Noahs follower explained that
the size of the plate prevented
proper separation of the letters
which properly should have
spelled "Ark Second".
As the Marquette party took
its leave, Cunningham bid fare
well with radiant face and much
more tranquility than seemed pos
sibie la his belief of Impendng

Variety of Questions to
Be Asked Each Individual
As Regular Census Taken
The presses in the public print
ing office In Washington are now
running off permanent forms for
recording the name, address, and
26 interesting facts about every
man, woman, and child in the
United States. The first of the
new record sheets for the 15th
decennial census to be taken dur
ing April were made available at
the Census Bureau here Monday.
A total of 2,750.000 large
blanks or "schedules," each of
which will accommodate namds
and facts of 100 people, will be
printed during the next few weeks.
Paper of extra good quality has
been selected to stand the wear
and tear of use in tabulation and
to preserve for an indefinite num
ber of years to come the census
records for the benefit of future
genealogists and historians who
may be Interested in tracing an
cestors or in studying the social
strata of the United States in
The new schedules resemble In
general those which have been
used in the past several censuses,
but certain differences are to be
noted in the questions to be asked.
More changes are to be found in
the informationto be collected this
time than have been made for sev
eral censuses, officials of the Cen
sus Bureau said today, although
it was pointed out that most of
the information collected by cen
sus-takers must be the same from
decade to decade if the various
censuses are to have value tor
purposes of comparisons.
rour quesuons which were
asked in 1920 have not been In
cluded. No questions will be asked
as to whether the home is mort
gaged; naturalised citizens will
not be called on to give the year
in which they obtained their citi
zenship; nor will foreign-born
persons be asked the native tongue
oi tneir latner or tnelr mother.
The new questions to be asked
are as follows:
What is the value of the home,
it owned; or how much la the
rent if the house Is rented?
Is there a radio in, the home?
Is the person enumerated em
ployed on the day he is canvassed?
Is be a veteran of the U. S.
military or naval forces?
If the person Is married, bow
old was he at the time of his first
The question about the value of
the home will make it possible to
group families of the country ac
cording to their purchasing pow
er and economic standing. The po
tential buying public Is to be clas
sified for the first Urns. The In
formation obtained la expected to
be particularly valuable to man
ufacturers and merchants plan
ning to expand Into new territory.
The radio question will be ask
ed to find oat how large the ra-
aio audience Is in this country.
Guesses on this subject have vari
ed most widely, whereas correct
information in this regard is eon
sldered very desirable b? public
and private organisations alike.
Tne tmra new question, re
garding unemployment, has been
included for the purpose of find
ing out who should fill out one of
the separate unemployment sched
ules which have been prepared.
Detailed information regarding
unemployment is now to be gain
ed for the first time, although a
question on this general subject
was asked in 1910.
The question regarding veter
ans was Included at the request
of the Veteran's Bureau in Wash
ington. The number of veterans of
each war or campaign in which
United States forces hare taken
part will be tabulated. In 1910 a
question was Included concerning
veterans of the CivU War, but in
1920 no mention was made of
veterans of any kind.
""Married persons will be asked'
to give their age at the time of
their first marriage so that sta
tistics may be compiled concern
ing; the marital age of different
racial groups and of different sec
tions of the country. This will
make possible a study of the ef
fect of economic status, race, and
education upon age at marriage.
The other 20 questions on the
1930 schedule deal with the us
ual census information, involving
facts about age, sex, occupation,
personal description, citizenship.

Although bo new question has
been included on the subject of
home-makers, women who fill
this poaitlon will he distinguish
ed aa such la the family relation

cial elaaslfieation. Heretofore the
father has been put down as the
head of the family and all other
persona classed In whatever rela

er that of wife, daughter, uncle,

This year women who are home
makers will be placed in a, posi

of head of the family.
