Report That His Offer of $500,
000 to Princeton Will Be
The Nnn. Accept?, rirp of First:
Present for Graduate School
Caused a Long. Bitter
Follow mc Ihe announcement, that by |
thr wrfli of haa^ C. Wyman. of Salem, j
Mass.. practically his pntir«* estate, esti- !
mated at from £2.000.800 to $»jy»ort.OOi«. |
was left to >»rinceton Tniversity for its \
Graduate Scnool. it was reported yes- i
terday that William ('.Kiper Procter, of
Cincinnati, would renew his offer of
S.-><»o.<i»>o for the same purpose, which '
would mean an addition of $1,000,<>«<o to !
the university's endowment.
Mr. Procter's original offer, was mad a [
a little morn than a year aco. He laid !
dt.wn two conditions: Fi'-st. that a shn
ilar amount of money should be raised
before May 1 of this year, and second, j
that a site satisfactory to him should
be chosen instead of th<- one which had
already been decided upon.
He withdrew his offer early in February :
after a marked divergence of opinion :
over the proposed school had been shown
and the whole university policy had be- j
come involved in the acceptance. At j
that time the university authorities .
made public the difficulties; involved, and j
Mr. Procter gave the reasons which
prompted him to withdraw his gift.
Graduate School Plan.
Moses Taylor Pyne, chairman of the j
graduate school committee of the board |
of trustees, issued a statement in behalf J
of the university. Be\en years ago. he
5 a plan for a graduate school had !
been proposed and approved by his com- i
:nittee and published under the authority j
of President Wilson. Later this state
ment of the plan was repeatedly reaf
j firmed by the president and never que.<- .
tioned until Mr. Procter's gift had been
accepted, in October. 1909. There never
had been any other plan for a graduate
school at Prince ton. Mr. Pyne said, and
Mr. Procter, who was graduated from j
Princeton in 1883, became interested In I
the project and entirely unsolicited made
his offer of half a million dollars to as- j
sist in carrying out the scheme. Whiit j
followed Mr. Pyne summed up in these |
••From the start his generosity has met j
with such an extraordinary reception, his |
motives have been so misconstrued, his >
patience lias been so sorely tried, that
self-respect has at last demanded the ,
withdrawal of hie princely gift."
Mr, Procter wrote to Thomas D. Jones, j
chairman of the trustees' committee ap
polnted to report to the board what Mr.
Procter';-- wishes in the matter were, part
"The reception of my offer by the pres
ident and his associates ha-s not been
such as to promise the usefulness which
I had hoped to secure by my proposed
prift. and I therefore beg leave to with
draw it."
The Big Wyman Gift.
I^ess than four months later came the
news that Princeton had become prac
tically the sole legatee of Isaac C.
Wyman, who had been graduated from
th' university in 1848. The will set
forth that tho gift was made as a
memorial of "lasting affection" for his
alma* mater He gave almost absolute
power to the trustees, one of whom is
Dean Andrew F. West of Princeton, to
dispose of the estate for the benefit of
th> Princeton Graduate School.
The will contains the proviso that the
estate i*> devoted in whole or in part.
"as the trustees may decide, to the
Princeton Graduate School, to maintain,
develop or assist it in any way that will
increase Its power and usefulness."

When arrested on the specific charge
of forging and uttering checks against

Washington street; Ghazal was appar
ently unruffled. He recalled that be was

on the charge of altering a bill of lading
and invoice by which be fraudulently

alleged f
Although an indictment for forgery
was found against him. at that time, it
.was pigeonholed by District Attorney
Jerome because government officials said
that Ghazal had been instrumental in
uncovering customs frauds in lace im
portations in which Araktounji was al
leged to have been involved.
Mr. Delehanty said <Jhazal had taken
advantage of ■ confidential place in the
Greek and Syrian Grocery and Liquor
Company, where he had access to the
books, to get some of the firm's checks,
which he was forging .and spreading
broadcast at the time of his arrest.
Using his connection with the govern

merchants upon whom he passed the
cheeks when they threatened exposure.
When arrested he had one of the checks,
drawn for $.». in his pocket.
After ' his arrest complaints of other
offences by him poured into the District

of all sorts.
When confronted with the complaints
and told that the old indictment of 1908
might be revived, Ghazal broke down
and pleaded guilty yesterday to forgery

Hamilton Chases a Scared Pup
and Destroys Stability of Horse.
Mother Tells About His First
Flight with an Umbrella
from a Barn.
Charles K. Hamilton, the red-hjure4
ready rider of the aeroplane, was in the
iiir above a.nd about Mineoia yesterday
afternoon a total of thirty-nine minutes,
twenty-three and tltrae-fifth seconds,
and travelled approximately thirty-rive
1 miles, not counting his numerous drops
to within eight and ten feet of earth and
Be made two flights. The first, at 5:40
o'clock, lasted six minutes and 17 sec
onds. Th» j s»- wen consumed by the
foremost heavier-than-air <-omedian in
circling the field, chasing a panic
stricken black pup that tried to go fifty
miles an hour, diving toward th^> auto
mobile spectators in sort) a danng man
ner that smelling salts were at a pre
mium, in turn, and generally enthrall
ing and convulsing th>- crowd as no
aviator in the East has ever tried to do.
The wind was from the northwest,
and was blowing at the rate of ten miles
\an hour. Asked about it, Hamilton
said :
"I didn't know it was here; is it^ I've
flown in ■ forty-mile wind in the West."
His Mother Sees Flight.
His mother had never seen "Charley"
fly in an aeroplane, so she came down
from Her home at New Britain. Conn-,
and listened whil* 1 a lot. of reporters ex
plained to her how proud she ought to
be of her boy. : .
"I've always been proud of him." she
said "He's my only child, and I've al
ways felt he was a rising son."
•'When did he first evince an interest
in aeronautics?" she was asked.
"When his first tooth cam*? I think,**
she replied. And when he was nine
years old be made his first descent from
our barn, carrying ray best umbrella as
a parachute. The ribs of the umbrella
were stout or his neck might have been
broken. I've never used the umbrella
since: its still inside out. I think" more
of it than Charley does of his aeroplane"
"Do you think your son has any sense
of fear?"
"I don't think so. and I believe he got
some of that from his mother. I have
never known fear myself."
The aviator's wife was also' present
yesterday. She. said she never "was
afraid when her husband flew, but she
hated to see him written up in the. news
papers as possessing: "a hawklike pro
file.' She comes from Bridgeport. Conn.
The second flight by Mr. Hamilton was
begun about <> o'clock, and lasted 33 min
utes and 6 3-5 seconds. During that time
the lightweight heavie -than-air expert
delivered a straight jab off to the right,
and followed it up with a quick left hook,
went hack to his corner, and then made
an uppercut from the centre of the green
arena. He made a feint for the four
logs of the horse of Egerton L. Winthrop,
jr.. president of the Board of Education,
but did not land. Mr. Winthrop's horse
saw it was coming and sat down, willing
to take the count.
Hamilton combines beauty and daring
I with hearty laughter, when he flies.
i Yesterday, on the last flight, he visited
Hicksville and Farmlngdale. five or six
miles to the. eastward of Mineola. re
turned to the Hempatead plains and cir
j cled many times at altitudes of from
four hundred to eight hundred feet, un
expectedly grazing sheds and telegraph
wires; and then started off to thf west
ward. where he looked down upon the
I church spires of ; Garden City and re
