For the honor of passing the draft examination you at least ?t your name printed. But for the militant minnesinger there is tot even thai glory. "The call to war." said Senator Hiram Johnson, w Monday, "haa k-en variously described. I read you from a r?cent peem, which expresses, I think, with a virility no modern American poet yet has approached, this call." And then Senator Johnson net on to quote the poem. Now, then, if Senator Johnson thought it was a great poem, why didn't he say who wrote it? "In my last days in college," said the Senator from California, in the same speech, "when we were made to wrestle with higher mathematics, I was taught that two parallel lines met in infinity. I never could grasp it, and I never could understand it." That, Senator, is the fault of the prep school you attended before entering the University of California. The school should have taught you that in the first week of Plane Geometry. Speaking of poetry, the newest?to us. at least?of the visible choir is Beatrice B. Bernheim, from whose book, "Impressions," we stall quote from t. to t.

"Eyes of Youth," which brought Marjorie Rambeau to a waiting; public at Miixine Elliott's Theatre last night, has a more widely diffused strain of blue blood in it than any play that has come to the first night bar of judg? ment in many and many a day. li build, "Eyes of Youth" has something of tho appearance of "On Trial," witn here and there a hint of "Peter Ibbet son," although lacking everywhere any such inherited proportions. There is l rea B hint of "Bunker Bean" as cur? tain passes on to curtain, and astonish? ingly the final episode bears all ?H habiliments of such creatures of Uta theatre as "Everywoman" and "Experi? ence" even to the night scene in front of Rector's. Probably every one would like to tea Marjorie Rambeau begin to sail ? the troubled waters of Broadway in a ! seaworthy craft. And "Eyes of Youth" j is anything but that. It leaks in sev- ! eral places, creaks badly, and last I night the engin? gave signs of a break- | down. The metaphor is not entirely a just one, because it isn't merely bad carpentry that ails the play Max Mar? eta and Charles Guernon put together. The idea that underlies it, if it can be Called an idea, is rather absurd, plays I with but little ingenuity upon the1 modern interest in occultism, and is j used to carry a story that is theatri? cal in the highest degree and quite without the charm that will sive even the wildest improbability on the stare. Gina Ashling has a voice. Paolo Salvo discovers the wonderful timbre of it and predicts a wonderful future if the girl will put herself under his care for u number of years. But there arc ob? stacles. Her father's business is fail? ing. ^ She ii needed at home. Her father would l.ke to have her marry a rich suitor. The man of her own heart is having for South America. She is sore? ly perplexed. Enter here a yogi played with rare discretion by Maeey ! liar.am bearing a crystal ball. Gina (looks in the crystal ball three times land that makes the play. This is the jccho of "On Trial." The first time she ? sees herself teaching school. The chil? dren are bad, and Gina says she is go? ing to have to give up her school be I cause ?he is behind the times. Her sis [tcr tells her of an engagement to one ?of her old suitor?, and Gina realizes to ?what drab depths she has come. The second episode is by far the most diverting of the entire evening, ! and shows Gina an opera singer in ' Paris; not merely a queen of song, j self-willed and headstrong, but a mis? tress of many men. It is at this point that Marjorie Rambeau picks up the thread the seems to have been fum- ! bling for through the earlier course of the drama, and playi with an aban- ' don and power almost tierce enough to | save the play. But not quite. Gina's brother unbraids her for her Immoral? ity, threatens to shoot himself and is saved by his sister only to use the revolver later upon the man who trained her voice and whom she ac? cuses of having brought her to her i pr?tant ?tate. The third episode is the hearing of a ! divorce suit in chambers. Gina has ! wedded the wealthy suitor, who now i "frames" a case, abounding in filth, agaiaat hef. The final episode is un? believably puerile. Gina is now a i creature of the streets, still pure in heart, but the victim of drugs. A ; kind hearted detective tries to help her ? and later she comes face to face with : the man she always loved. Generously, t he takes ?er to his heart, and the story ? returns again to Gina's home already ! interpolated several times between eui ? so'les to allow Gina, after her ?limin? ?t.on of all other suitors, to accept the ? man .-he lover. It would be itrange If such a play did not abound in opportunities here . and ther* for those who play it. Mar ?jorie Rambeau captures her audiences se scenes In which she is allowed ? to play vigorously and powerfully. At other moments the burden of falsity | that the play must carry is too heavy , for her. Donald Gallaher, as the broth ? rr, has impressive moments here and j there, especially where he assumes the I prerogative of a brother and avenges ? the family honor. He is passionate ! without being theatrical, and is at all I moments as convincing as the play 'will allow. Charles Abbe locks the op ' po: v.'.nities that "Pops" presented in i"Bir.ker Rean," but does the best he : chu ai Gina's father. The ca?t is large and on the whole fairly well bal I an**' d. It will scarcely require the services of a yogi and a crystal sphere to decide whether "Eyes of Youth" is to remain or to pass on to the limbo of dead Miss Bishop a Bride A wedding of much interest to io nety wai hurriedly arranged yeiter It was that of Miss Augusta H. a, daughter of .lames Curmirir ? ham Bilhop, of th<s city and Torres ! dale.

KNAPPEN SAN' FRANCISCO, Aug. 12? War is a wonder-worker. It is the prince of gamblers. It turns the na? tion into a colossal roulette table, For instance, shipbuilding in gen? eral and particular. The wheel ?Tin?, the marble rolh in the war game, and Uncle Sam draws a big merchant marine. The Shipping Board was considered a Jonah and turns out an indispensable instru? mentality. Steel ship building on the Pacific Toast was considered an anomaly, kept alive by local pride, repair work nr.d government favor. War romes. The remit: The his? toric Union Iron Work?, builder of the faithful old Oregon, suddenly be? comes in this ironless and coallos.s region one of the greatest shipbuild? ing plants in the world. In its two plants on the Bay of San Francisco there are building at this moment twenty steel merchant, vessels of a total of 200,000 tons. Thi? wonder of the war furnishes one of the mightiest spectacles of the war. Only the roar of a battlefield is comparable to the roar of the strug? gle of ten thousand men to work un? willing steel into towering ships. And ? ship never towers as it does when it is on the ways. The colossal, forward looking frame, the swarm? ing ants of men, the lofty scaffolds, the ponderous surface and aerial cranes, the green lights of the oxy acetylene drills, the ceaseless rattle of the compressed air riveters, the acoustic background of composite and all pervading industrial noi.-e, vast symmetry arising out of ap? palling chaos?all this awes and thrills. War of Merchantman Against Submarine Nothing so typifies the industrial nation at war as a great shipyard under working pressure, and never before in any war so much as this. For thi? is the war o' the merchantman against the sub? marine. The great steel bulks are war units. They fight by willing!" taking the chance of destruction. They hope to achieve victory by of? fering themselves faster than the sea-wolves can devour them. They represent the effort of pa? tient construction to defeat ruthless destruction. It is the battle of the whale against the shark. Can the whale exhaust the shark before he dies of the wounds he cannot es? cape? Sometimes the enormous ex? tent of the killing job is too much for the shark. Until a successful submarine offensive method is found this is the nature of the struggle for the mastery of the seas. So some of these majestic fabrics of steel that take shape day by day are surely doomed to early destruc? tion. Already their sister ships are lying on the ocean's floor. Boats that were iron ore a short time ago and then plate and fabricated steel in these yards have already completed the cycle of their existence. That is modern sea war. ? Mayor Asks Baker For Labor Reform Wires Secretary That Condi | tions on Uniform Contracts Are Objectionable Mayor Mitchel yesterday telegraphed Newton D. Baker, Secretary of War, ? asking him to take immediate action ! to the end that army contracts for I uniforms include specifications for , proper conditions of labor and that ex , ??tir.g contracts be reformed. The ? Mayor's telegram follows: "It i? two weeks since the Mayor's ? Nafi?*>na1 Defence Committee called your attention to the serious condi? tions in the city surrounding th* ; manufacture of uniforms for the I I mtrd States army. "The undermining of decent labor ; standards, the existence of horn* work in tenements, the recurrence of sweat? shop conditions, low wages, long hours of employment and the n'.-gleet of the New York market m the di'tribution of contracts are striking, and the uni? form? of our army are being manu? factured under very objectionable con? dition!. "Moreover. N*w York, the largest needle-working market in the country, is threatened with duuircrom conditions and with an increasing d* ?r*<' of unemployment, which the City Itur*au of Kmplnyment repor'i to m* fa du?- to the methods under which con? tracts for uniforms have been dietrib uted and manufactured in tail city. "On b?half of thousand-? r .?.orner? and in the interest of the commerce ( of th? city, I urge that imm?diate *c ' tion be taken by the War Department , to the end that army contracts for unie" I forms inriude specifications for proper 'condition? of labor and an effective machinery for enforcing them and al?o ! that existing contracts be thus re ; formed. "My committee on national defence is at your service to assist in every way in the enforcement of fttntta embodying jn?t labor and commercial ' standards." Miss Peters Marries I Daughter of Long Island R. R. Head Weds J. P. Hubbell Mm? Dorothy peter?, daughter of Mr. ?nd Mr?. Ralpn P*ter?, was married U II John Platt Hubbell, ion o? Mr. and With nerve-strain and muscle weariness a thousand men work with feverish haste for a year or more, aided by steam, electricity, complex machines and willing capi? ta!. For all that time this great con? struction is the essential life of those thousand men. Finally, the i triumph of their industry glides into the. waiting waters and sails away. Many Are Built Only for Destroyer Presently fate assigns her the one deadly number in the hundred, and in a few minutes she settles to her final resting place in the ocean ooze. What a thousand patient men ac? complished in strenuous months a, handful of impatient men undo in a , tense moment. And the only an-' swer to destruction being construe-1 tien, vengeance is sought by still. greater constructive effort. So the government may take over the shipyards in the hope of provid? ing foor for the sea wolves more rapidly than private industry. If you have thought that the ship, yards were idle while Denman and Goethals quarrelled, note with reas? surance that on the shores of the .-ingle Bay of San Francisco there aie now building fifty-nine ships, ex? ceeding L',500 tons each, of a total tonnage of 450,000; that Puget Sound contributes as much more, and that other Pacific ports are Building at least another hundred thousand tons. These figures take no account of many ships of less than 2,500 tons or of the war vessels that are building at the Mare Island Navy Yard and in private ship? yards up and down the coast. Some Ships Wooden, Some Are of Steel Please note, too, that they are of l>oth wood and steel?and if you are worrying about the government making a mistake in building wood? en vessels, even in the stress of a war that reckons no costs and wants only results, consider the fact that many of the commandeered vessels are of wooden construction, ordered by private business. If the level? headed Standard Oil Company con? siders it good business to build wooden ships, Uncle Sam is prob? ably not making a mistake in build? ing them as a war measure. The war measures of to-day will be the peace measures of to-morrow. Is Uncle Sam going to come out of this war as owner of some thou? sands of freighters and then be con? tent to leave the commercial suprem? acy of the Pacific or any other ocean to Japan or any other nation? War i ; a problem that settles some peace problems. While the war is on Japan reaps her harvest on a Pacific almost bare of the American flag. But after? ward? One day Herr Ballin may write a book which may laboriously conclude that if his imperial sov fTeign destroyed the German mer chant marine he at lea?t succeeded in building up the American.

Plan to Measure Gas by Heat Unit Public Service Board to Con? sider Change in Standard Because at least 80 per cent of the pas furnished in this city is used for heating and not for lighting, the Public Service (omtni.-sion has set down for rnbfr 18, at 2:,i0 p. m., a hearing to determine whether the standard for ?.-asurement should not be changed from a candle power to heat unit, or, in other words, whether the price to be charged for gas should not be based on the quantity of heat units furnished with every 1,000 feet. At present the price is fixed by statute on a basis of l.ii(n) fact of gas with a standard of ?2 candle-power. Cemmiaaieaer Travis H.

The members of the Board of Esti BanSB who voted on the proposition to buy the sites from ex-Senator William H. Reynolds and his realty associates included John Purroy Mitchel, presi? dent of the Board of Aldermen; Con? trol 1er Prendergast, George Mc*inenv, President of Manhattan Borough; Lewis II. Pounds, President of Brook? lyn Borough, and Cyrus Miller, Presi? dent of The Bronx Borough. Mr. Miller protested against the purchase. Tho late Mayor Gaynor did not rote. If these officials are called by the grand jury they will be Hsked to ex? plain why they voted to purchase land on options. Another phase of the situation which the grand ju.-y may inquire into will be the reason why the city appointed William P.

It was also learned that the officials will be asko 1 whether they had knowledge of the alleged secret agreement existing am?ne Reynolds, Frnnk Bailey, vire pr?s:dont of the Title Guarantee and Trust Tr>mpany; Patrick B.
