ceremony for Miss Gladys Vanderbilt and

! and no Protestant service. There wyi be
no ceremony other than the one conducted
by Mgr. I.a\vlle, according to the .dis
pensation granted by Archbishop Farley.
The archbishop denied recently that he

marked policy of liis administration has
been his refusal to witness the marriages
of Catholics io non-Catholics. He disap
proves of these alliances, and no matter i

how' close the bond of friendship he has
| never given ihe sanction of his presence

Walter Damrosch and Symphony
The career of Walter Damrosch, leader
of the New York Symphony Orchestra,
which plays here at the National The
ater Sunday evening, may be said to be
the realization of a dream at the very
outset. Walter Damrosch was only twen
ty-two years old when his father. Dr.
Leopold Damrosch, died, and the young
son was elected his father's successor in
all the noted positions he had held. He
was elected his lather's successor as di
rector and conductor of the New York
Symphony Society and the New Tork
Oratorio Society, and he was chosen to
fill his father's place at ;he Metropoli
tan Opera House, and now for several
years he has been devoting himself al
most exclusively to the New York Sym
phony Orchestra, which comes here under
Four and a half is the average stM mt
