$200aDayon Soldier Insane Manhattan Hospital Head Admitg U. S. Allows $2 Daily for Each Yetcran antl Only $1 Is Spcnt Herded With 6,500 Others iLegiois Denounces Syslem That Puts. Men in Gas? VTilli Charity Patients Charges by an investigating commit? tee of thg American Legion that the Manhattan State Hospital, on Ward's Island, is making a profit of approxl mately $200 a *oay through the treat ment of 200 insane soldier veterans were admitted yesterday by Dr. M. B. Keyman, superintendent of the institu? tion. Further charges that the state !s caring for the insane veterans at the Manhattan Hospital at an approximate cost of $1 a day, although the state is allowed $2 a day by the government for their care, were also admitted as true by Dr. Heyman. Dr. Heyman, when Jnformed of the report returned by the American Le? gion committee, which was headed by William F. Deegan, first vice-president of the Department of New York. said: "Yes, it costs the state approximate !y Sl a day to care for each of the 200 insane soldiers at this hospital. They are very troublesome patients and need ?xtra attendants and special diets and care. This institution has nothing to do with fixing the rates for treatment: such rate? are flxed by the state, and ?he fee raid by the government goes to the state. 6,500 Patients at Hospital ''We have 6,500 patients out here to care for and these soldiers do not re ceive the individual attention they would receive in a hospital maintained especially for them. We are doing our best and, I believe, are succeeding as well as any other hospital in the coun? try. We have more insane soldier vet? erans here than any other institution, 1 believe. It is true that some of these vet-erans are being kept in wards as signed to civilian patients, but that does not alter the attention in the least. I know there is much agitation for better conditions for these soldiers, and I think it would be the best thing for the government to care for them personally. instead of having the state do it. I personally advocate such a btop." Mr. Deegan. chairman of the Ameri? can Legion committee composed of Ed? ward Kiley, Queens County chairman, ; nd RicharJ Beli. director of the state service department. after a visit to the Manhattan Hospital, made the follow ing report: "The most serious condition we found was that these veterans are be? ing cared for like common charity pa? tients of th-e state when they should be receiving special treatment. The hospital is not equipped to deal with cases which have resulted directly from war cnuses. Moreover, no one can tell me that it is a good thing to have these young men in an institution where they mingle with the insane who have lost all hope. Object to State's Profit "We also object to the state taking $2 a day for the care of these men and only expending approximately 90 cents a day for their maintenance. The lesult is they receive food which, though wliolesome enough, is not care fuliy prepared. The committee found that tbe potatoes served to the men were only half peeled and the 'eyes' were not taken out. The spinach was served with the roots on. The food poes to the table cold. The reason the food is cold is because the natients are haused in emergency buildings .-ri.-cted by the navy during the war, a~id these buildings are far from the ki*.cl?eh. The government is primarily to blame. It should have built specia: hospitals far these men instead of 'passing the buck' to the state institu tious which are already crowded." While tbe Manhattan State Hospital was the first to be investigated by the 1 egion committee, it ? was said last r.ight that the investigation would be eurried on in other state institutions. A complaint made by Jacob Felbel, an attorney with offices at 374 Broadway, that he had delivered a huge basket of candy to the disabled veterans at the Polyclinic Hospital, at 345 West Fif tieth Street, and that the candy had never reached tha soldier veterans, is also to be investigated, it is said. Delivered Gift in Person According to a statement made yes? terday by Mr. Felbel, the basket of candy, which waa won at a bazar for the beneftt of the wounded soldiers, was taken by hlmself to the institu? tion on May 19. An employee, Mr. Felbel declared. took the basket of candy and card bearing the inscription "For the disabled soldier boys" and promised to deliver it. .After ascertaining that the candy had not reached tha disabled soldiers Mr, Felbel took the matter up with Dr. W, D. Heaton, executive omcer at the hos? pital, and an investigation followed. On June 7 Mr. Felbel received a com munication from Dr. Heaton, in which it was stated that an inveBtigation con ducted under his personal guidance had failed to throw any ]isht on the matter. -ms-< City to Pay Disputed Transit Board Salaries Action Taken Pending Ruling on Constitutionality of Mil? ler Commission The Board of Estimate, at Its meet? ing yesterday, pursuant to a sugges tion by Corporation Counsel O'Brien adopted a resolution to pay the 105 employees of the new Transit Com? mission who were transferred from the old Public Service Commission. The action of the board was taken pending the decision of the courts jon tha con? stitutionality of the act of the Legis? lature creating the Transit Commis? sion. If the courts decide the new transit law is unconstitutional, the btate will be requested to reimburse the city for the money expended. The 105 employees have not been paid since the new commission took offlce, April 26. Comptroller Craig re? fused to honor the pay rolls of the new commission in respect to these employees, and gave it as his opinion that the employees 6hould be paid out ot Btate funds and not by the city. Mandamus proceedings brought by the Transit Commission to compel the Comptroller to pay the employees are stil] pending in the Supreme Court.

Hot dogs are dclicate crea tures and ago rapidly. The strikers are confldent that when to-day's sup? ply is exhausted the red-hot man will have to get a job with the Weather Bureau or some other place where hia cry of "Here y'are! Red hot! Red hot!" will cause no mouths to water. The strike was decided upon at a moeting of Butchers' Unions 174 and 1211, whosc members include virtually all of the adepts convcrsant with the inner mysteries of the hot dog in this city. The meeting was held at Brook? lyn Labor Lyccum, 949 \Villoughby Avenue. Fifteen hundred bologna makers and frankfurter stuffers are involved. The decision to strike followed in effectual attempts to adjust a dispute ctiused by the announcement of the Meat Packers' Association of New York that frankfurter men's -\vages would be reduced from $44 and $41 a week to $37 and $34 and their hours increased from eight hours a day to ten. Conferences between representatives of the parties to the dispute were held all day Wednesday. They could come to no agreement. The meat packers in sisted that they and the hot dog could survive only if hours were lengthened nnd pay rolls shortened. The frank? furter stuffers asserted that they would stiiff frankfurters eight hours a duy and not a minute longer, nor would they take a penny's reduction in their pay. Tl;ey regard themselves as the true scientists of the meat packing business, synthetic. chemiats. securc in their posi tion by reuson of the recondite knowl edge of the structure nnd anatomy of the hot dojr which they alone poss,ess. Their confidcnce of success is based upon knowledge of their power. No amntcur, they assert, could turn out a genuine hot dog even though he worked with text books at his elbow and devot cd an entire ten-hour day to the task. A hot dog to the professional frank? furter stuffer is art of the highest type. lt savora of the poetical, but no more poet ever achieved one; its har mony is as delicate and definite as that of the composition of a supreme com poser. but no mere musician ever stuffed a perfect frankfurter; the crea tive vision and precision of tha painter are required in the eflicient stuffer of hot dogs, but the painter would be help less with the implements of the master stuffer at his hand. With their very art nnd science in peril, the frankfurter men are deter mined to fight ruthlessly, even though Coney Island starve. Red Tape Tangle May Cost Clerk His Peusiou Till 1923 Ruling Depriving Veteran Posloffice Employee of $1,227 Because He Held Job Too Lone Protested Andrew Crow, a veteran employee of the Postoffice, is facing the prospect of eighteen months without income as a result of a tangle in the red tape that winds through the Bureau of Pensions in Washington. Mr. Crow worked eight months after the day on which he be came sixty-five years old, in compliance with a ruling which made special clerks exempt from the law that clerks must retire at that age. Last April he was informed that the ruling had been changed and that he must retire. Recently, however, he received a let ter from the Bureau of Pensions stat ing that, inasmuch as he has been paid $1,227.84 for his services during eight I months when he should have been re 1 tired, he must forfeit that pay; in other words, the amount will be de ducted from his pension (which is $60 a month), and so he will receive no in? come until February, 1923. Mr. Crow* said last night there were many other victims of the same ruling and that their concerted efforts were being directed to have a special act of Congress enacted to restore to them at least the amount of their pension for the period of their work. Meantime Mrs. Crow is maintaining the little home at 974 Anderson Ave nua by renting rooms. "You can't sell Liberty bonds these days at an advantage," she said. "It's pretty hard on a patriotic citizen to work for the government thirty-three years and buy bonds with his savings, only to have nothing to show for it. My husband would be glad to work. He is strong and well. He walked the other day from 161st Street to Tenth Avenue and Eighth Street, looking for work." -?# Cuts $20,000 Award for Loss Of Child's Eye to $12,150 The Appellate Division yesterday de? cided that a verdict for $20,000 ren dered in favor of Henry Yost jr., an infant, against the Third Avenue Rail? road Company for the loss of an eye should be reduced to $12,000 and $150 for'costs. The Yost boy, on April 14, 1917, was being carried across Third Avenue, between 104th and 105th streets, when a steel splinter from a drill being used by employees of the railror^a company entered the child's left eye and destroyed the sight. Stage Folk Friends Of "Flo" Flee From Stillman Publicity Process Server9 Baffled in Hunt for Witnesses; Mrs. Leeds Declared Now in New York in Disguise Announcement several days ago that women of society and the stage would ; be summoned by Mrs. James A. Still? man in her defense against her hus band's divorce action has resultcd in thfl disnppearance of n number of stage folk who have been known as former associates of Mrs. Florence Leeds, named by Mrs. Stillman ag co-respon dent, according to process servers, who have been active yesterday and to-day. The singer known as "Irene," said to be an important witness for Mrs. Stillman and known as a former close friend of Mrs. Leeds, is declared to have had three Yale locks and a heavy chain placed on the door* of her apart? ment. Hall porters invariably insist that Irene is "not at home." Mrs. Fannie Glidden, known as a close friend of Mrs. Leeds when she was a member of the Century Roof production, and who is said to be ad dressed by Mrs. Leeds as "Auntie," was declared yesterday to be Mrs. Still? man'? principal witness in the Leeds matter. Mrs. Glidden has been living in an apartment near 184th Street and Wadsworth Avenue. On the door of this apartment yesterday visitors found a chain lock. Recent movements of Mrs. Leeds, who is now in New York with her baby son, are said to have been traced by detectives for Mrs. Stillman, who, it is declared, wishes to call Mrs. Leeds as a witness so that she may be cross examined by John E. Mack, guardian of Guy Stillman, as to her relations with Stillman. John E, Brennan, chief counsel for Mrs. Stillman, said yesterday that Mrs. Leeds had been found some time ago In Stockbridge, Mass., where she spent several weeks after leaving Miami, Fla. From Stockbridge, Mr. Brennan said, Mrs. Leeds went to Boston, registering there at the Copley Plaza Hotel on June 1 under an assumed name. On June 2 Mrs. Leeds came to New York with Mr3. Glidden, according to the lawyer, arriving here on a Fall River steamer. Trace of her was lost when she left the dock at West and Murray streets. The investigator shadowing Mrs. Leeds said she had been wearing a dark wig for some weeks. Bedtime Stories King Eagle's Story By Thornton W. Burgess A moment's carelessness may end What all of time may never mend. ?King Eagle. "Tell us about the Man who started the Red Terror on the Great Moun tain," beggod Bobby Coon of King Eagle, sitting on a branch of a tall, dead tree near the pond of Paddy the Beaver. "Why did he do such a dreadful thing? Those two-legged craaturea called Men are the most awful creatures. They do the worst things. Every fall they hunt me, when I haven't done a thing to them. And they seem to think it is fun to try to kill me." "Yes, and some of them set traps, and that is the most unfair thing I know of," spoke up Biliy Mink. "Farmer Brown s Boy doesn't and be doesn't let anybody else do either of those things if he can help it," spoke up Chatterer the Red Squir rel. "I don't believe he would start the Red Terror. Did that man do it purposely, King Eagle?" "I don't think he did," replied King Eagle, shaking his snowy-white head? "But it is just as bad. I was sailing round and rojind way up in the air above the Great Mountain. You know I have very good eyes" "Wonderful eyes," interrupted Sam my Jay. "And I Baw a man way down near the foot of the Great Mountain," con tinued King Eagle, just as if he hadn't been interrupted. "He was walking along u little path. By and by he stopped and put something in his mouth and then he took a tiny stick and struck the end of it on a stone and the Red Terror sprang up on the end of that tiny stick and he touched .the thing in his mouth with the Red Terror. Then he threw the tiny stick down in the path and didn't once look to see where it fell. I guess ha thought |here was no longer any, Red Terror on the end of that tiny stick. "But he didn't look to see. He didn't even look to see where that tiny stick fell. But I saw where it fell. lt fell in some dry leaves. A few minutes later 1 saw .he breatb of the Red Terror rising ."rora thos< leaves and then the Red Terror itself It ate up those leaves and ther jumped to the leaves beside the path It ate faster and faster and the fast er it ate the greater the Red Terror grew. It began to climb the trees, and in a short time it was racing up the Bide of the Great Mountain as fast as Lightfoot the Deer can run. "It \\ns then that th* Man discov "Tell us about the man who started the Red Terror on the Great Mountain," begged Bobby Coon ered it. I saw him stop and look be hind him. Then he began to run, and he ran away from the Red Terror, al? though the Red Terror was not run ning toward him, He ran as if he wanted to get away froin there with? out being seen by other Men. I know, for I saw it all, looking down from high up in the sky. He didn't set the Red Terror free purposely. I know that, too, for 1 saw it. lt was care lessness. And now the whole beau tiful side of my, Great Mountain is tcrrible to look at. All the treos and the bushes and the vines and the plants that grew beneath them are gone and so are many of the little people who lived there and could not get away. And Man did this thing!" King Eagle's always fierce-looking eyes were terriblo to see. "But other trees and bushes and vines and plants will grow there again. will they not?" asked Bobby Coon, hopefully. "In some places where the Red Terror pijssed hurriedly trees and bushes and vines and plants may grow m time. but in othar places the Red Terror has eaten down into the very soil and left in it nothing for roots to feed on, and no tree can ever grow ?&,tra aeai?." replied King Eagle. '.though my years be manv, I will never see a big tree on that side of tbe Great Mountain again, nor will any one e!so now living. lt Is a mat? ter for great sndness." He bowed his handsome white head in sorrow. (Copy right. 1821. by T. W. BurgeaB) The next story: "The Voice of a Propbet," _ :*-?^ Cohan's "All Through" Now "May Never" Vfanager Less Vcliement in Declaring He Will Quit Stage; Says He Wants to Write Play With Idea Joking, Equity Asserts Organizatiou Asks How Pro ducer Can Be Actors' Friend and Close Shows Although on Thursday George M. Cohan vowed and declared that he was "through" with the stage he waa less vehement yesterday when he reflected his thoughts by saying: "I may never produce another play." The stage hands demands for $4 a pcrformance instead of $3.25 are gen erally accepted in the theatrical dis? trict as the most disturbing element in the situatioa. These figures apply only to the "grippers," the unskilled workers who, after the curtain falls, shift off stage tho cherry trees or the sewing table at which has been seated the abused wife while she waited for her husband to come home. Thus far the -high priced carpentcrs and elec tricians have not rriado demands, but their new scale must be negotiated before the beginning of the next season. "Yes," s=aid Mr. Cohan sadly, "I may never produce another show. What I'd like to do would be to write a great play or comedy or farce?I don't care what, just so it's great aiul got an idea in it. It's got to have an idea. Plays by Formula "What chance have you got to write when you hustle down to an office every morning at 9 o'clock? Yes, I know. We've served up a lot of shows. Used the well known formula. You come down with a scene. Try that out. When you go home that night you say, 'That was ull right; I'll fatten it up a L:t.' When you get through, ihe first act is poor, the second a little bette and the bang comes in the third net. That's where you put the joke. No more of that. I want to get some thing across with an idea in it." Mr. Cohan brightened visiblv, say? ing: "I poisoned that Equity crowd with my line about the song and dance men being the only people who can really act. Oh. that poisoned 'em. But the hoofera liked it. I'll bet all those boys have been going up and down the street to-day telling how right I am. Those babies will agree with me about that if nobody else does." Equity Replies The Equity noticed Mr. Cohan's re marks but as many of the song and dance men belong to their organiza? tion they couldn't be quite as tart as they desired in their reply. How ever, here is part of it from "the tvpe wnter of Frank Gilmore, executive 3ecretary of the organization: "Surely, Mr. Cohan is only trying? albeit in rather bad taste?to get over one of those jokes on which he has made his reputation. For example, there is his statement that he is the actor's greatest friend and then?in the next line?he is going to throw hundreds of these acjors out of work by closing up his companies. Mr. Co? han cannot'throw hundreds of actors out of work, because his place will im mediately he filled by other managers; witness his statement that his theater leases are most desirable properties. But, if he could, would it be the part of the actors' friend to go after the rank and file of his profession rather than to make an attack upon tha lead? ers who, he says, have misled them? "Another of Mr. Cohan's little jokes is his remarkable statement that the only people who can really act are song and dance artists. We recognize the high degree of art which has been at tained by this very talented branch of the profession, but very few of these artists themselves would make such a statement as Mr. Cohan's. It is a witticism which is apt to be mis understood by the thousands of dra matic players who have spent years studying their art, only to be con temntuously classed as 'second raters by this great man."
