' In his address to the veterans of the 27th Division, den. O'Ryan eald i ' Itt part: s V "I am glad to be able to say, after .fSf three years of observation following: the war, that the men of the 21th , , Division ' have conducted themselves In peace In accordance with the high standards maintained by them during f the. war period. Immediately after " the final muster In New York City, It was a matter of almost universal comment how promptly the uniforms aid,, Insignia of the 27th Division - disappeared from the streets. "Ma mAn wtA fffllnri MAlllnp nr. 0fr ! Holes of merchandise on the streets , or in inc cars, rur u. uiuu wo aicm ''mass of 'our men were without em- liploymont, but very ohbrtly their '; number was reduced to i minimum, ' duo both to the high worth of our personnel and the systematic manner y In which tho employment agencies or g the divisional units were organized "end maintained. i "It was very natural after what we had been through In the war that ithere should be a disinclination to 'continue In the service of the division "as reorganized In the National Guard ,yet when It was made to appear that the reorganized division should make new start with a substantial nucleus of veterans these veterans came for ward In tho numbers needed and re joined their old organizations. "To-day probably BO per cent, of the commissioned officers of the 27th S; National Guard Division are veterans H of the World War, and In like manner a very material number of the en listed men saw service In the World War. As experienced soldiers, you know what this has meant In the present development Of the new 27th Division." Six large amplifiers were Installed over the reviewing stand to transmit to the assemblage a message of wel come to tho Division from President Harding In Washington.

OVINGTON'S "TA. Gin Shop of Filth Avanut" fifth Avenue at 39th Street BOY, FIVE, PLUNGES (Continued from First Page.) The only hope was the roof, and everybody fought his or her way In that direction. Kramer took TUUe In his arms, his wife took May and Larsen took Mi chael. When they reached the root' Larsen found two boards and placed them across a six-foot chasm between the burning building and the one next to It. Kramer made tho trip safely with his charge, but Mrs. Kramer on reaching the other side stumbled and crashed with May Into ,a skylight. They did not go through, but both were cut and bruised and May was taken to the street unconscious. By the time Larsen started across with Michael the boards were getting shaky. Suddenly one turned and Larsen barely Baved himself, but could not prevent Michael plunging down Into the water filled aperture. It was a to minutes later that Oliver and his driver found the ladder on the roof of tho two-story rear ex tension and made their thrilling res cue of the boy. Others In the house, many of whom were cut and bruised or scorched In escaping by the roof, were George Bruce, his wife and children, George, four, and Raymond, two, who live on the top floor; John McCaloon, his wife and children, Peter, nine, James, 8, Margaret, seven, and Joseph, four, who llvo on the third floor; and Peter McCaloon, his wife and three chil dren, Walter, six, James; seven, and Peter, two. . ah oi ineso naa to do earned or led to tho streets by firemen of Trucks 10 and 8, some of them by way of tho L .structure. Three ambulances wero called because of the number of hysterical women and slightly injured children. A dozen or more persons were treated for injuries, most of them of minor character. The worst, except the Kramer boy, are his sister, May and Peter McCaloon, nine. Both wero unconscious when rescued. Policeman Kerr and Emll Zepf were given high praise by superiors for their work before firemen came. They Jumped from the "L" structure to the Are escape of a building, found. a ladder and assisted many .to safet. Chief Oliver, who, when lowered into the pit on a ladder rescued tho Kramer boy, has won several medals for bravery, the last for his work at a Greenwich Street fire some months ago. He went into a building that was so hot tho Rescue Squad helmets were damaged and without any pro tection helped rescue several firemen who were Imprisoned in an Ice box. tlon In tonnage of 46 3-10 per cent., the 1920 report stated. 'We will furnish you any record that Is part of our business and Is germaln to your Inquiry," said Mr. Gary in answer to a question by Mr. Unfcrmyor. Mr. Gary sold 1920 was a good year. He was asked If 1922 would-be a good year. He replied: "Business Just now Is very good and It Is Improving. wouldn t like to express an opinion for the whole of tho year. You, Mr. Untermyer, can tell better1 or at least as well as I can." Asked what tho United States Steel Corporation differential was over other steel corporations that It was from $3 to 25 a ton, as testified yesterday Mr. Gary replied: "I doubt that It is that much. I doubt that the differential Is greater than $3 a ton." Mr. untermoyer then struck at the connection between the United States Steel Corporation and the Morgan banks. Judge Gary declared J. P. Morgan has never attempted to dominate the corporation. Asked if Mr. Morgan had picked him for the Chairmanship of the Board of Directors, Judge Gary replied, "Only partly so." Then he added : "I had more to do with the selec tion of officers and directors than J. P. Morgan. Ho never suggested di rectors without consulting me." 'Then you arc the Pooh-bah?" asked Mr. Untermyer. "Morgan Is only a rubber stamp." "Neither Mr. Morgan nor his firm has ever attempted to be a dominating factor In the affairs of the steel cor poration," Judge Gary asserted. Angered by the failure of John A. Topping, Chulrmun .of the Board of Directors of the Republican Iron & Steel Company, and Alvah C. Dinkey, ARMY PLANE HITS CLIFF, TWO AVIATORS KILLED EL PASO, Texas, June 2.

President of tho Midvalo Steel & Ord- nance Company, to Inform htm yes terday of the consummation of the now $211,000,000 steel merger, an nouncement of which was made last night not many hours after the two had left the witness stand, Mr. Unter myer announced as the hearing began to-day that the committee will not allow Itself to be trilled with. He wild the heads of steel corporations will be treated the same as "John Smith or any one else." Mr. untermyer asked if Topping and Dinkey were present. There was no answer. Mr. Untermyer then said that at yesterday's hearing Mr. Din key denied knowing what the capital of the new combination was to be and that all the plans for tho merger were yet In a nebulous state. Mr. Untermyer said Mr. Dinkey gave the Impression that the big. merger, which at that Very moment had been con summated, had not been reduced to the basis of actual figures. "These gentlemen have been asked to come back here," said Mr. Unter myer. "We are going to require them to explain their action and their tes timony." 4 "Wo think you are trilling with this committee," declared Mr. Untermyer after Mr. Dinkey had finally appeared and followed Judge Gary ofi tho stand. Ho denied he know of tho merger yesterday when ho testified. "This commlttco Is not going to permit witnesses to suppress facts In that fashion," Mr. Untermyer said. "Is there any further explanation you deslro to mako of your conduct?" ho asked. "Nothing," replied Mr. Dinkey, 'beyond that I am not suppressing facts." "I demand that you Droduce all records of this merger and have them with you after recess," said Mr. Un termyer to the witness as he left the stand.
