President Northrop, about 350 students,
and possibly a few members of the fac

in effect until November 15.
The failure of the students to comply
with the state law that all students be

ed from recitations for a period of three
weeks was the occasion for the order.

The New York Dancing Academy, '>;t
the fourth floor of No. 113 West 'S'>v<l

tit» i* - jm<] they continued to keep time \"
the music while one man l«y <l»;nl and
another dying in the hallway less than a
dozen feet from the door.
The dancing academy was engaged for
a private subscription affair. The doors
leading to the hallway were closed, shut
ting off the view of tii<- dancers, and
John J. Barson. the proprietor <>r the
academy, was standing in th<- hallway,
near the elevators, talking to Adler, his
Bpn ial officer.
Adler, a ; ; !it-ht. quiel manni red man of
perhaps tinrty years, had been formerly
employed Bpecia.l patrolman In a the
atre nt Eighth avenue and I'_'<l street.
During tli" tlire< years in which !i;- tiad

energy in making them keep the lobby

open. The gang had sworn t<> **g< t him."
and he knew ttuit he was a marked man.
Juht before 11 o'clock last niuht Kar-
Bon ;• ii'l Adler heard a commotion at the
tout ..! the stairway on the third fltior,
and the sound <>f many scuffling feet.
Before they could make a move t<> block
ih< passageway a dosen members of the
"Gophers** rushed the stairs and brushed
Barson arid Adler aside.
They tried to push open th<- doors l".:d
ms to the dancing room, but in this they
\ .'«■ frustrated by Adler, who placed
himself in front of th<- door and refused
to let them i>.-»sn. The men Insisted,
however, and started In to abuse the
■pedal policeman. Adler told them thai
do man w.,uld be allowed to enter th<
ball without a ticket.
Barson, seeii g i it trouble was brew-
Ing, had run Into tti«- strei t on th.' hunt
patrolman, leaving Adler to
the dosen men. Be< Ing that they could
not Intimidate the man at the door, and
seeing y tooi opportunity to "Ket" their
tnemy, two members of th<- Kanp drew
their revolvers and started toward Vi
ler. The latter was quicker than they,
however, and levelled his gun at the ;:d

After the first shot had been Bred by
the gangsters, the bullet passing j US (.
