New York, Jan. 31. How John D. Rockefeller, jr., became interested ..in the campaign of vice suppression, which resulted in the foundation of the bureau of social hygiene, was re lated last night by District Attorney Whitman at the sixteenth annual din ner of the young men's Bible class of the Fifth Avenue Baptist church, of which Mr. Rockefeller is vice presi dent. Ir. Whitman said that when Mr. Rockefeller was summoned to serve on the grand jury which investigated "white slave" conditions in this city, he visited Judge O'Sullivan, and asked to be excused. Business interests and a trip out of the city, he said, would make it difficult for him to serve. Judge O'Sullivan declined to excuse him. and announced his intention of making Mr. Rockefeller foreman, saving he was the only man the whole city would trust for this important work. "I believe Judge O'Sullivan never rendered a better service to this city and nation," said Mr. Whitman, "than he did when he appointed Mr. Rocke feller. Under his direction the body worked ably and carefully for months. Its report on vice conditions was the best that has ever been given, out either in this city or country. "Mr. Rockefeller's interest did not cease then, in fact, it had only Just esun. I feel tnat tne service wnicn he rendered then and which he has continued is to be the greatest work of its kind ever carried out in this country." HOUSE BILLS.
