HISTORIAN SPEAKS ™ I TO HRST CLASSMEN IN NAVAL ACADEMY In his address to the midshipmen of the first class last night In the Naval Academy Auditorium Hendrick Willem Van Loon, who won a prize for his “History of Mankind," aired j a number of his pet theories on “His tory ns It Should Be Written” and as he thinks it will In time come to bo, with due prominence given to the nen who in their era contributed most largely to the advancement of mankind. Mr. Van Loon Interspersed his ser ious romarks with a line of comments that kept the midshipmen In an up roar of laughter most of the time. He criticised the historians of all countries for having had a large share in fermenting international an tagonisms and hatreds, adding that though he felt that civilization was by no means ripe for international ism as yet, there was no necessity twr harping on age* old quarrels and disputeß. He stressed the necessity for a knowledge of the history of the world If the continuity of civili zation wus to be maintained. In conclusion he congratulated the I midshipmen on coming to maturity at a most interesting period of the ; world’s life, though a most difficult one, and said that in common with i others he had no solution to offer for the countless problems facing all I countries at present but could only j say that to emerge successfully from the present world muddle infinite pa tience and courage would be needed as well as un unprejudiced view point towards the “other fellow’s" as pirations. .

JOHN’S CRUSHED BY~ WILLIAM AND MANY NINE \ Cadets Stage Comedy Of Errors And Visitors Had Merry Go Round On Bases INDIANS FIELD SHARPLY St. John's College Cadets essayed a comedy of errors yesterday In con sequence of which they went down to defeat on the diamond at the hands of William and Mary College, Wil liamsburg. Va., 18 to 2. Nearly every man of the team was a party to the farce. Matthews, at second being particularly faulty, having 5 miscues charged against him. It was enough to put any pitch er on the fritz, although Stundtford was wild and finally gave w-ay to Bock in the fifth session. The Virginians did not get in their slugging, a much heralded forte, to any marked extent On the contrary they were atle to l unch hits in only two - innings, and the Cadets’ errors were the lig factors in the run-get ting. Cox twirled in splendid form for William and Mary and was given good support by his comrades. De spite the two niuscues chalked against them, the visitors nut up a snappy and impressive game in the field. St. John’s was held completely at bay until the ninth, when an error by Chandler, and two singles gave them their brace of runs. William and Mary will face the Navy this afternoon, and Saffell, the crack hurier, who shut out Harvard irnnHniiftl tin Pur* 1 6.1 OFFICIAL PROGRAM FOR BOARD'S VISIT TO NAVAL ACADEMY The Board of Visitors to the Naval Academy will convene on Monday next at 11 a. m. and will be met at the Administration Building by the heads of academic departments prior to the inspection of buildings and grounds.

WASHINGTON, Apr. 21. —Oxygen breathing apparatus is taking an in creasingly important part in the war by science and humanitarianism to reduce death and loss from mine fires and explosions. The United States Bureau of Mines says the proper use of the breathing apparatus after the recent mine explosion at Spangler, Pa., resulted directly in saving 22 lives. Nevertheless, the disaster reports of the bureau indicate the need for more widespread installation and training. Of 122 mines at which disasters have occurred, only 32 had fully trained rescue crews, while 16 others had only a few men trained. Records of a large numter of such disasters show 189 men saved their lives by sealing themselves behind barricades built to shut out fatal gases. The wearing of oxygen breathing apparatus after disasters and in the fighting of mine fires, however, is haz ardous. The records show 23 men have died wearing apparatus at the, time of disaster, but this numter is, only about 1.2 percent of those wear-] ing such apparatus. By careful in vestigation it was proved in each case that if the apparatus had l een kept in proper order, or'had the men been properly trained or been physically sound, or had they not attempted to 1 do too much.there would have been no deaths and no occasion to blame the apparatus.
