When some time had elapsed and he had not ap peared, Bill Hoper, Princeton coach, was delegated by the committee to look for Camp at the Belmont. Itoper went 1o Camp's room and getting no response had the door opened. Camp was lying daad on his bed. Walter Camp, Jr., the coach's on, who is a New Tork business man, was summoned immediately but plans for the removal of the body were held In abeyanco until Mrs. Camp's arrival. A. host of famous gridiron stars at Tale, many of whom are now suc cessful mentors of college elevens throughout the country, received their football training under Mr. Camp's personal supervision. Before the present highly developed coach ing system in American colleges ttas adopted, Mr. Camp was for many years the guiding genius of the sport at Tale. Was Eli Strategist.

To the great American college game he had devoted a large part of his time since his graduation from Yale, and he came to be known affectionately as "The Father of Football." He earned this title because the numerous amendments to the playing code, which he suggested and which were adopted, not only revolutionized, but Virtually recreated the game. As a player on Yale football teams for six years, Mr. Camp's interest In the game extended far beyond the goal posts and the Improvement in the game which he evolved were readily accepted by the Intercolle giate football committee.

The first revolutionary change In the gridiron game suggested by Mr. Camp was the rule requiring five yards gain in three downs. That was In 1883 and was tho first step that led to the modern style of play. He also suggested the change to ten yards gain In four downs In 1906.

ASKS SCHOOL STRIKE Urges Catholic Parents in Alsace Not to Send Pupils to Classes Strasbourg, France, March 14 Bishop Ruch. of Strasbourg has call ed a sohool strike throughout Al sace, effective Monday, as a protest siijoi institution l?y the French government of "Inter-confesslonal" or religiously neutral school. The strike will continue three days In Colmar and one dav In u the other communities of the two departments of lower and upper mime comprising Alsace, the an nouncement says, "and if necesnnrv It will renewed to last as long as is necessary." The bishop, In a proclamation ad dressed to the Catholic fathers and mothers, says the "committee for action or religious defense" decid ed upon the strike. After giving the instructions regarding It he adds: "Your bishop fully approved this determination. He makes It his own and asks you, dear parents, to exe cute It In masse without hesitation." The proclamation calls the strike one of general warning and men ace. The parents are asked "not to send any of their children on next Monday, to the official primary schools of the departments of the upper and lower Rhine" The Inter confessional schools to which the bishop objects will be opened Monday in Colmar, it is noted, "by order of M. Herriot." This form of school. In which Cath olic control is abolished, would sepa rate all the faiths for religious In struction. The schools were author ized by the premier "under local laws," the reference being to an old statute, but the bishop says that the conditions unijer which such schools might legally bo established have not been fulfilled, and he declares that " the introduction of the lnter confessional school is an attack on Catholic consciences." The' proclamation refers to the recent action of the French bishop in declaring the new constitution to be a peril to the faith and morRlity, and declares that unless tho Cath olics act now "the Catholic, school will disappear from Alsace." '"SInoe petitions and protests have been unavailing, the proclamation continues, the Catholics must resort to a strike "to obtain fulfillment of the promise of Joffre and Poincare, Clemenceau and Millerand, so that Germany close by shall not be a witness to France perjuring her self." The bishop concludes: "Your action will' signify that If the liberty of conscience and re ligious rights of a single Alsatian are touched, all his brothers will be with him to compel the persecutor to draw back. That is why this ac tlon is required. It is legitimate, and your bishop blesses it." RIVER STILL OPEN The Connecticut Has Not Been Closed to Navigation at All Tills Winter, an I'nusual Record.

MOTHER AND SON BURNED TO DEATH IN SUMMER COTTAGE COUZENS AND ERNST BATTLE OVER TAXES Latter Accuses Michigan Senator of Animus Toward Sec. Mellon Washington. March 14 A -h ,,,.. that Senator Couzens, Republican, of Michigan, was prompted by "per sonal animus" In his recent attacks on tho Treasury Department was maue in me senate today by Sena tor Ernst, of Kentucky, another republican member of the Investi gating committee of which tho Michigan senator Is chairman. "Not once during the entire In. vestlgation has Senator Couzens for gotten his personal ftellng against the secretary of tho Treasury," said Senator Ernst. "He has been hunting not for facts for something harmful to tho secretary and to the bureau of in ternal revenue; but during all the months of the Investigation not a single fact has been brought out reflecting on (he character or the integrity of the secretary of tho treasury or officials under him." There was no Justification the Kentucky senator said for the state ment of Senator Couzens that an ad ditional tax assessment of ten mlllon dollars had been imposed on him as a "disciplinary measure." Mr. Couzens, he said merely was attempting to "pose as a martyr." . He read a telegram from Secre tary Mellon, saying the additional tax assessment had not connection with the senate Investigation. Senator Ernst told the senat that Dr. S. E. Adams of Yale uni versity first counce for the commit tee had resigned because he con cluded the purpose of the inquiry was not constructive legislation, but a pursuit of the attack of the sen ator from Michigan upon the secre tary of the treasury and his admin istration." Senator Couzens sat at his desk throughout the Ernst attack, and was on his feet as the Kentucky senator finished. "I am sorry not to have advance notice of what the senator from Kentucky was going to do" he said, "and I regret to detain the senate when It is anxious to get away, but a statement from me is required." Senator Couzens then declared the committee had Investigated compan ies in which Secretary Mellon was interested at the Invitation of Mr. Mellon himself, who wrote a letter to tho committee requesting It. Further more, "he continued, the committee went into the tax affairs of the Mellon companies because of "serious charges" made to the com mittee by employees and former employees of the internal revenue bureau. "I had no Interest In tho surtax until Secretary Mellon attempted arrogantly to ride, over tho senator from Michigan when he asked how he had arived at the surtax pay ments" the chairman assorted. "When I asked him courteously in letter for information his reply was sarcastically and arrogant and this convinced me that Secretary Mellon had a personal Interest in a surtax charges." After Senator Glass, democrat, Virginia, former secretary of the treasury, had concluded a speech as sailing Secretary Mellon, Senator Ernst asked "if there was anything under the rule of the senate that would permit to call a fellow sena tor, a wilful, malicious liar." A dozen senators were immediate ly on their feet demanding that Sen ator Fess, republican, Ohio who was presiding, enforce the rules and compel the senator from Kentucky to sit down. After much confusion a motion was made and a roll call ordered to determine it Senator Ernst was out of order. Funeral of Rep. Goddard Held in ainngtora Wallingford, March 14.

Father and Another Son Escape Flames Which Raze Home at Walnut Beach Firemen De layed by Error in Giving Alarm. Milford, Conn., March 14. Mrs. Cordelia Jones and her 21 year old son George Jones Jr., were burned to death early today and the father and another son, Stanley, 14 were Injured In the fire which early to day destroyed their cotage at Wal nut Beach. Air, Jones, Sr., who had been res cued by his son, George, was some what burned and was taken to the Milford hospital for treatment, and later he went to his home at 527 Fairfield avenue, Bridgeport. Arrived Yesterday The family came to Walnut Beach yesterday to look after their sum mer cottago in Grand street. This morning shortly after 5 o'clock Mrs. Jones arose to get breakfast for her son George who was returning to Bridgeport. She used a kerosene oil lamp to her bedroom. After break fast George Jr., went out to Nauga tuck avenue to get the trolley for Bridgeport. He looked back and saw flames coming from the cottage. He ran back and going into a bedroom rescued his father, and then went back to get his mother, and was not seen again. Stanley Jumped through a window and he received cuts from glass. He was ai the hospital this morning. Fire Department Is Delayed The Devon fire company came in response to a telephone call from Charles Hayes, who lives nearby. There was delay in securing the ap paratus as through error the alarm was given for the Naugatuck gardens which is in the Devon district. The Walnut Beach company did not get to the fire until after the Devon company although its house is only 500 feet from the Jones cotttage. Two houses, one on each sido of the Jones cottage, were gutted by the flames. One belonged to Maurice Chude and his family and the other, unoccupied owned by Herman Schultz. Bodies Arc Found The bodies of Mrs. Jones and her son George, were found in tho ruins of tliu house. That of tho son was badly charred. That of Mrs. Jones which was badly burned, was lying over that of her son. Apparently the son had been creeping to the bedside of his mother when he was suffocated, and Mrs Jones probably got out of bed and fell over him. Medical examiner Fischer viewed the bodies and gave them over to an undertaker. While it could not be determined how the fire started the theory was held that after preparing breakfast for her son Mrs. Jones went back to bed leaving the lamp lighted. This may have exploded, or possibly up6ot when she tried to extinguish it. The lire apparently started in the room in which Mrs. Jones slept.

The Jury se lected to hear tha evlri . au fc4JU Chapman murder trial will be lock ed up curing the progress of the trial if an application to he the court by state's attorney Hugh ju. Aicorn. is granted. If this Is done it will probably be the first time in the history of the state that such a precaution has been taken for the run period of the trial.

Never Hefore Asked So far as could be learned today there has been no instance In the state when such a request has been made of a court. If the application is granted the possibilities for a mistrial will be very Blight. It has been estimated that the trial of Chapman may extend through two and possibly three court weeks.

Murphy of Danbury, counsel for Chapman, call attention to the fact that in this city, during the past two years, three murders have been committed, and claim that as a result, a man charged with slaying a policeman could not obtain an unprejudiced trial. Judge Groehl announced that he has issued warrants subpoenaing of ficials of the "Herald", the Hartford "Courant" and Hartford "Times", to testify at the hearing Tuesday re garding their circulation figures and the territory in which their papers are X'd. Defense counsel will also call a number of representative citi zens of Hartford county to testify as to whether or not they have formed opinions on Chapman's Innocence or guilt. An attempt will be made to establish the fact that because of the extensive circulation of the above three papers throughout the county, and the fact that they have carried comprehensive stories about the murder of Patrolman Skelly and also of Chapman's alleged past ca reer. Chapman would go to trial in Hartford county under a handicap. States Attorney Hugh M.
