report, "a new warden was appointed
for this prison?Mr. Johnson?and he

that all federal prisoners who are now
confined In the Tombs be sent there in?

There are thirty-two cells In this prison,

Series of Them Arranged for the
Rockefeller Bible Class.
Member of Class Recently Up on
a Charge of Having Beaten
His Wife.
A prominent member of the Bible clfiss
presided over by John I). Rockefeller, jr.,
?it ?he Fifth Avenue Baptist Church wa
recer.tly haled into a police cour* on the
ch-.rge of beating his wife. Yesterday at
the meeting of the Rockefeller clasa. held
in the Sunday school room of the church,
it was announced that a series of fifteen
belt-res, designated as "special," would be
ghen for the lieneflt of the class, begln
r.ii*?-,' on February 1?~. These lectures will
be grouped under the general head "On
Facts Necessary To Be Known About En?
gagement and Marriage.''
The man who passed around the printed
announcements regarding the lectures made
no comment on the particular significance
of such a series, following so sharply on
? he heels of the police court appearance
O? one of the Bible class members for wife
beating. No spoken word was dropped
b-, any member of the class that would
gli- an indication of the impression cre?
ated by the announcement. Many of* the
?Sunday school scholars, however, wore ex
ir???lve grins, which, though silent, spoke
louder than words.
It could not be learned last night whether
the series of lectures Is relied upon to cor
rect the domestic manners of such of the
??lass as are married or soon expect to be,
but th? fact that one of the class had only
recently faced a magistrate on the com?
plaint of his wife still lingered In the minds
of many. <
As an instance of the broad instructive
Qualities embraced In the series, some of
the titles of the lectures are enlightening.
One of the talks will be called 'The Eco?
nomical Basis of Marriage; What It Coats."
Another will deal with the problem, "What
a Man's Income Should Be; Rents In New
Still another talk will deal with the
query, "What Dangers Face Him If He
Marries with Only Enough for One?" No
word Is said as to what dangers the wife
must face under similar circumstances; but
then, as it Is pointed out, these lectures
are exclusively for men.
A lecture that promises to be of exceed?
ing Interest has to do with "What Things
Has a Wife a Right to Demand of the
Mon?" Nothing is said here, either, as to
whether the wife has the right, to demand
that her husband shall not beat her.
A talk that holds forth great promise to
the members of the class, and one which
will be eagerly listened to, no doubt, will
h.T.e to do with the answer to the QOee?
tlon. "Why the Mom? Shoulil I'.c Away
from Relatives, if Possible." Many of the
Sunday school students feel that they could
answer the question in the wo-ds, "Mcther
ln-law," but they will be attentive listen?
ers, nevertheleea
In discussing marriage with his Bible
class on one occasion, John D. Rockefeller,
Jr.. said: "?'et married M soon as possible,
hut be sur?? to get a wife who shares your
-lews of life. A young man should take
great care In choosing n wife, as she can
make or mar his career."
