There were boys who look forward to college careers and lives In which there wilt be no worry over the cost of living and boys who ylll have to light every foot of the way to keep the wolf back. the fifty, won the race, nnd If he does that as a rule be will never be bite for breakfast.

Chairman Kdwnrd K. McCall of the Public Service Commission said last night thut ho hoped the subway con tracts would be slgnud by Monday night or by Tuesday morning nt the latest. "Hut tho signing of the contracts Is not the most Important thing." said he. "The immediate and effective oper ation under those contracts Is of far more consequence. The assertion which I havo heard made many times lately that there will be no relief from present transit conditions for nt least four years Is absolutely false. Inside of eight months there will be a tangible show Ing of relief, and Inside of fourteen months thero will be marked Improve ment In the boroughs of Manhattan, Kings und Queens." Mr. McCall, who wns the guest of honor at the twenty-ninth annual ban quet of the New York I'nlverslty Law School Alumni Association, held 'nt the Hotel Knickerbocker, said that to for mer Chairman Wlllcox, Hnrough Pros! dent MeAnetiy, Comptroller l'render gast nnd their associates on the Hoard of Estimate should go the credit for "the best contract which ever has been or ever could be made as far as the city's Interests are concerned." "Kor the last two weeks," he said, "I have devoted all my time studying the Incomparable work of tho most devoted, loyal and patriotic ollicers It has ever been my fortune to come across. Their work wns complete; they left me noth ing to do. The citizens of New York must, as a matter of duty, recognize the work done by these fearless men In the face of tho most abusive tirades and criticism." Over 300 members of the nlumnlasso elation were at the dinner and greeted Judge McCall's remarks with enthusi asm. President David I.eventrltt, the toastmaster, urged thos- present to do their share in raising the morale of the bar. "Wo hear little nowadays about the ability of lawyers." said he, "but wo should hear less about the character of some practitioners. Kverv lawver should make It n matter of duty to read carefully the lists of candidates for ad mission to the bar and should give to the character committee any informa tion he has In regard to the ehnrne. tor and standing of applicants."
