Keep, Killed in War; Concert at Night Special Correspondence NEW HAVEN, June 17.?This wan Yale alumni day in the university com? mencement programme and more than 4,000 graduates of the university took part in the exercises, lncludig the gen? eral university meeting this morning, the separate class business meetings held at noon, the procession to the Yale-Harvard baseball game and the class banquets this evening. Speaking before the alumni this morning President Hadley said the re? construction plans of the university will mar none of Yale's ideals. Thomas Dewitt Cuyler, of Philadel? phia, Yale, '79, presided at the alumni meeting, and speeches were made by Professor Bernadotte Perrin, '69, of New Haven; Irving Rew, '89, of Chi? cago; George Chappelle, '99, of New | York, and Major Morris Hadley, '16. At its commencement meeting Yale i corporation voted to confer tho do- ! grees of bachelor of arts and bachelor ! of philosophy on all members of Yale College and the Sheffield Scientific School who satisfactorily completed at least two years of undergraduate work and who have given their lives in the service of the country.

William Adams Brown, '86, chairman of the Corporation Commit? tee on Educational Policy, which re? cently made its report on university reconstruction, presided this evening at the "1492" dinner in the university dining hall, which eclipsed all former records for attendance, many of the sixty-odd classes returning for re? unions sitting as classes at this din? ner. Other speakers were Charles P. Howland, '91, of New York; Rev. Her? bert D. Gallaudet, '98. of Bridgeport; Henry J. Fisher, '96, of New York, ? chairman of the Alumni Fund Asso- j ciation, and Ganson G.

Disloyalty Scored By Harvard Odist CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 17.?Rob? ert Tyng Bushnell, odist, threw prece? dent and tradition to the wirfHs to-dgy ] and caused the crowd in Sanders The- i atre attending the Harvard Class Day exercises to sit up and take notice when, after reading his ode, he Your Town FOR years the edges of Prospect Park have been going to waste as far as little children and their mothers are concerned. The trees lean over the iron railings on three sides of the park, making a fragrant canopy. But beause there were no benches the wom? en and children living near the park could not avail themselves of the sur? roundings. The families were com? pelled to walk several blocks to the entrances of the park and sometimes tired mothers stayed home. Last week benches were installed and their per? petual and happy burden attests their need. launched into a vigorous denunciation of disloyalty. Clearly and earnestly he arraigned the false doctrines that possess many people to-day, scored Bolshevism, an? archy and ksocialism, and gave solemn warning to all who might hear his words against following the false gods that masquerade as patriots. He was vigorously applauded at the close of his remarks. Henry Flower, first marshal, and Charles Clark, chairman of the class committee, both members of the 1916 football team, and Francis W. Hatch, captain of the tennis team, headed the four hundred seniors in their proc?s- i sion to the theatr*. Captain Hatch, who is class orator, exhorted members' to assist in the work of helping to recon- j struct devastated Europe. He said it no longer was possible for the United ? States to return to her former isolated ' position in the affairs of the world. Robert C. Rand, of Rye, N. Y., read i the class poem, in the absence of Will- '. iam R. Parsons, of this city, who has just returned from serving overseas. ; The poem, entitled "Ideals," follows;! The world is filled with victory? and tears ; I Triumph with fear and love with hatred blends ; Look well ?for to the men of coming years A danger-laden heritage descends. See how an impulse ?ways a nation's vote. How crimes go free till justice seems un- ? strung. How anarchy draws near and peace remote.? : O but it is a stern time to be young 1 Yet in the tangled web, half truth, half lies, i One thread runs straight and still holds fast ? To mock each specious prophet that denies The immemorial lesson of the past. We knew about the schemes of men and mice. And that in spite of madmen's madder dreams j No sudden change can make a paradise. And that disaster lurks behind extremes. Some things should be and always have been | so ; What's youra is yours. and what's mine is mine ; Out of a shameless wrong no right can ; grow, Nor robbery of justice be the sign. At 4 o'clock the class marched in a body to the Stadium for other exer- ' cises. Frederick M. Warburg, of New ; York City, son of Felix M.. Warburg, the international banker, delivered the I humorous ivory oration. The glee club sang several college melodies. Marshal Flower presented ? the senior class banner to Henry F. Colt, of Geneseo, N. Y., the freshman j president. Soldier9s Mother Gives Insurance as Memorial Stevens Institute, Will Gel \ $10,000 From War Policy? of the Late Class Member !

Opens At Belmont Theatre There was a gun for every character in "Who Did It?" the mystery melo? drama by Stephen Gardner Champlin, which, after several postponements, : oponed at the Belmont Theatre last : night. Such recklessness with small arms indicates that there ought to be ; a Sullivan law for the stage. The ; mystery, which at first view seems i rather sluggish, is prodded into activity by an extremely energetic district at : torney, who being opportunely on the scene, brings out the fact that nearly every one present has a sufficient enmity for the dead man to make them likely suspects. With these facts he brings so many guns out of hiding that the play turns into farce. It is as farce, and in certain moments of broad burlesque that the' play is diverting. ? But, unfortunately, Mr. Champlin has not the skill to hold the piece with any i steadiness to either farce or melo- j drama. It careens rather wildly be? tween the two, and a further difficulty is added by the fact that the complica- I tion of an actual murder stalks about j in the play. The whole fabric of the '? piece comes down with a dull thud, ; however, when it is disclosed that the j elaborate plot is all a piece staged by the heroine to prove that she can act in order that she may convince her husband that she !s entitled to a career. At the same time the real murder is cleared up by an equally casual expla? nation. "Who Did It?" is not above the grade of an amateur effort, and a good part of the acting matches it. ?Indeed, the effect was that of an earnest effort of a dramatic school. Beulah Poynter was comfortably professional in her characterization, and so were Peter M. Lang and Francis Morey. Women in Industry '*-ii:? army of the unemployed has ?*? few women recruits. The war opened many fields of industry to women from which they show no in? clination to retire, and the shortage of all labor has made it possible for them to hold their positions without detriment to returning soldiers and sailors. Miss Eugenia Wallace, head of the Central Employment Bureau of the Young Women's Christian Association, had 1,249 offers for positions last week, many of which remain unfilled. Trained women are especially in de? mand and there is an unanswered call for financial and banking assistants. The Title Guarantee and Trust Com? pany, which employed thirty-five women four years ago, now has 700 on its ! books, and the National City Bank, ? which had fewer than thirty-live, now has 1,200. The compensation offered is i higher in proportion, even counting \ the additional cost of living, than it ! was before the war, and opportunities ? open to women are of a higher* class. ; The demand for "household assist- ? ants" to work on the new eight-hour day schedule is more than 200 per cent over the supply. -???-? '?America' Is 'Sung* by Signs | Twenty-one Graduate dat Deaf and Dumb Institute Twenty-one pupils were graduated yesterday from the New York Institute for the Deaf and Dumb at Fort Wash? ington Avenue and 163d Street. The exercises took place on the lawn overlooking the Hudson River, and in addition to an address by Isaac 15. Gardner, principal o'f the school, there were exhibitions of the work of the graduating class and athletic drills by I the younger pupils. "America" was "sung" in sign lan? guage. "The graduates are equipped to take their place in the workaday world by thorough traning in one of three trades? taught by the institution," said Dr. Gardner. "These are printing, paint- j ing and carpentry. All of the gradu- I ates have already found positions." Last Appeals Made to N, Y. in Scouts' Drive McAdoo and "Big Bill" Ed wards Urge Adults to Come to Final ? Day Aid of Boys in Their Campaign Far Behind Quota Goal Eleventh - Hour Rallies Are Expected to Place City in Organization Honor Roll HIS Is the final day of the Boy Scout drive. It is New York's last, o p p o r t unity to supply the $1,000. 00? and the adult membership of 325,000 the organ? ization has asked. William H. Ed? wards, chairman of the campaign in the city, yesterday issued a last minute appeal to the, people of New York. "I want to make an earnest appeal to the citizens of Greater New York," he said, "to do all in their power to make the last day of the Boy Scout drive a great success. "If the Boy Scout movement can go into Pell and Mott streets, and make ! red-blooded American boys out of the ' voung Chinese there, do you not think that your dollar is worth while? "Who knows what the future will bring forth? Let us ever prepare for the future, and if th/ future of Amer ica depends upon the boyhood of to? day, *t us make sure we are not j overlooking any obligations that are upon our shoulders. "We want more Boy Scouts and few-1 er gunmen. "Make this last day of the drive the j most important thing of your day's ? work. See that you and all your neigh? bors do something constructive." William G. McAdoo, national chair? man of the drive, added his plea for a last great effort by the city to send the drive over the top. "The Boy Scout campaign." he said, "is not for money to buy uniforms and tents and camping outfits for scouts. Scouts buy such things for themselves. The drive is for money necessary to enable the Boy Scouts of America or? ganization to carry its great work for j boyhood into every home in Greater; New York where there is a boy twelve years old or over. "This movement has the unqualified indorsement of representative church- j men, schoolmen, statesmen, business men based upon a thorough knowl-; edge of it3 constitution, management j and aims. We urge upon the consid- I eration and prompt action of every reader in New York and its suburbs ? the needs of the Boy Scouts of Amer- l ica for large and prompt support to make possible more rapid extension of its boy membership." The campaign will wind up to-night with a mass meeting and rally in the ! stadium of the College of the City of ? New York. The police band and glee club will \ furnish the music and Robert L. Moran, ' president of the Board of Aldermen; "Big Bill" *Edvvards, Police Commis? sioner Enright and others will speak. The doors will open at 7 p. m. More than a tnousand persons gath? ered about the steps of the City Hall yesterday at a scout meeting which Mayor Hylan had promised to address. The Mayor did not appear, but Mr. ? Moran read an address from him, in which Mr. Hylan urged all to support the campaign. Others who spoke on various phases of Boy Scout life included Colin H. | Livingstone, president of the Boy Scouts of America; Franklin K. Mat- i thews, W. L. Young and Ensign H. G. Horton, acting scoutmaster of Sea ! Scouts. The Bay Ridge receiving' ship band played. Byron R. Newton, collector of the j port, began yesterday to enlist all water front employes and harbor boat- j men in the Boy Scouts. Before the end of the drive to-night he hopes i to have enrolled most of those associ- I ated in any way with traffic on the ' North and East rivers. , Memorial Hospital Fund In Queens Grows Rapidly The first two days of the campaign to raise $500,000 in Queens for the rebuilding of Jamaica and St. Mary's hospitals as a memorial to the men from the borough who gave their lives in the war have been most satis? factory, Robert W. Higbie, chairman of the drive, announced lasf night. He urged continuation of the pres? ent good work, which, he said, would certainly put the borough over the top by the end of the week. Two new theatres, to be known as the Times Square and the Forty-sec? ond Street, will open before the first ? of next year. They are to be on the north side of Forty-second Street, di? rectly opposite the New Amsterdam Theatre. In association with Aaron Naumberg, Selwyn & Co. recently se? cured title to the property from Sperry & Hutchinson. When ready both thea? tres will be under the management of Selwyn & Co. The completion of the two new houses will make ten theatres in this block. George White is kicking up his heels over "The Scandals of 1913," his first production, and a success. George at? tributes it to his interperative pedal extremities. His right foot, he says, is his serious foot, and his left foot the comedy stepper. Ari6UI*~>H He tried to get into the aviation sec? tion of the army so that he would not misuse his meal tickets? he didn't want a tragedy and comedy doesn't go in that organization. By a proper blend? ing of his feet White says that he is able to register any emotion. Jean Schwartz has written the score for the first "Gaieties of 1010," which will open here in two weeks. Al Bryant is responsible for the lyrics. The cast will number more than 100. In contradiction of a rumor that Otto Harbach and Rudolph Friml had ' decided to part company, these play- ; wrights have entered into an agree? ment with Abraham Levy to write two musical comedies a year for five years. ? The first will be called "The Little : Whopper." Mr. Levy will book his productions through Klaw & Erlanger. JAZZ The abandonment of the announced production of "The Merry Widow" in Spfrnish at the Cort Theatre last Mon? day night was made necessary by the securing of an injunction by Henry W. Savage, sole owner of the Franz Lehar piece. Richard O. Herndon, manager of the French Theatre du Vieux Colom? bier, who is to manage the new The? atre Parisiene, returned to New York j yesterday after a trip to Paris, where ? he arranged for plays for the coming I season. , q Myron Selznick, who last week so cured Elsie Janis as a star for his pict- ? ures corporation, announced Owen \ : Moore as another acquisition yesterday.
