TWO PROFESSORS AHE KILLED
At Syracuse, X. Y.-Ono Tried to
Prevent Suicido of Other.
Syracuse, N. Y., April 2.-J. Her
man Wharton, dean of the Collogo
of Business Administration, Syra
cuse University, was shot and killed
by Holmes Beckwith, professor of

The shooting occurred in the office
of the agriculture building, the new
half-million-dollar structure donated
to the university by Mrs. Russell
Sago in memory of her father, Jos.
Slocum, and named for him. Prof.
Beckwith had been unpopular with
tho students, it was said, and peti
tions had been circulated among the
student body asking for his removal.
In a statement issued soon after
tho shooting Chancellor Day declar
ed that it was the belief that Dean
Wharton died trying to prevont tho
professor from committing suicido.
This was indicated in a note left
for Dean Wharton by Prof. Beck
with, said the chancellor, in which
he intimated that ho was going to
kill himself, and referred to alleged
unjust treatment of himself, based
on the fact that he had been dis
missed, the dismissal to take effect
at tho ond of tho year. Dean Whar
ton's chair, a stout ono, was broken.
He evidently lea ed from it when
Beckwith tried to kill himself, and
the gun was turned on him, and the
denn was shot through the bead.
Beckwith was shot in tho chest. He
nlsd stabbed himself to make death
certain.
Dr. Holmes Beckwith was a first
lieutenant, field artillery, in the
World War. Ho joined tho Syracuse
University faculty last September.
Boan Wharton was a graduate of
Syracuse University and had boen an
instructor there for tho last few
years, his first service having been
with tho engineering school, in which
bc was hoad of tho English depart
ment.
