GET WRIGHT'S GIFTS 'UNDER NEW NAMES 0SaaBBBMaMaaalaaaaaaBB jHcrjnests of f?10fr,000 to Li brary find 8500,000 to llos tiittir Will Bo raid. JtKMOIlIAIi TITLE GONE A report fl'M 1n Supreme Court ty pnoenlx lngrahnm n referee In a imtt graving out of conflicting Inter pretations of tho will of .Tames Hood Wright, the philanthropist, who died In November. 1R!U, finds that the New York Public Library Is entitled lo f 100, 000 front the estate find that the Knlck erlioeker Hospital, formerly tho J. Hood Wright Hospital, nt Amsterdam avenue nil 131ft street, should tret $580,000 from the estate. The chief mutter In dispute was tho UOO.OOO bequest to the rid Washington HelgWs Library, which woe merged with the New York Public Library nftcr Mr. Wright's death. There was differ ence of opinion as to whether tho New York Public Library when It took over the Washington Height Library became entitled to the bequest. Tho case wns referred to Sir. Ingpa ham, as referee on the application of Sirs. .Mary It. Wright, the widow, when I .... ....... i.. i .. uii... "UI -u,,r- " Drill ivrigm. sinter ot tnc pmianiurupisi, made It mcossary to distribute tho , reslilu.iry estate, held In trust during her lifetime. Sllss Wright's share In the estite consisted of the Income for life from one-thlid of the residuary estate, the whole amounting to JSSu.uOO. After her death various legacies, Including the lino.OOO library bequest, were to be julil. and the remainder turned over to the Knickerbocker Hospital, which was known as the Manhattan Dispensary during Mr. Wright's lifetime, and was called the J. Hood Weight Hopltnl In his menhr. The name was changed again several years ago so a to attract support from other sources, because the Income from the Wright estate was In ainclent to meet the hospital expenses. The referee's report shows that legacies of IHO.Oflft have been paid and that the trustees hold I6S0.000 to dlsnose of un-! trustees hold J6S0.000 to dispose of un rier (he order of the exurt. One of the feiturea of the report Is the stipulation between the ,irtles to the action that "the region known as the Washington Heights extends tom UStli street to liflth street, and from Iht west side of Kdgecombe nvenue to the Hudson Itlver."

De I-ancey Nlcoll The Hev. Dr. Carl Helland of St. George's Church. New York, con ducted this service, which was a most Impressive one.

KltOIIMAXS TO 01VE AID A comprehensive plan to develop an Increasing output of American plays and the encouragement of the American playwright Is one of tho first steps bo Ing taken by Augustus Thomas, who lately accepted the art directorship of the Charles Prohmau company. The paralysis of foreign play writing brought on by the war has made It nec essary tn Increase the home supply, Mr. Thom.iH says, and with this end in view the Frohmau company will glvo every possible encouragement to the American dramatist. "Since last August pluy writing has been extinguished In seven nations," said Sir. Thomas yesterday. "The thea tres of six countries are closed. Pie vlous to lat August 60 per rent, of thn dramas, fumi-dles and oerettas shown on the American stage came from Ku- rope and Kngland. America, which lias always made the greatest demand of all , countries for theatre erili rtalliini nt must hereafter product! Its own supply Play writing Is paralyzed throughout Eu rope for live or ten Jears tu como. E cept the plays we. now have from Slaugham, Barrlv, PInvro, Beoler, hambtrs and Slorton no plajs will even ctiniii out of England for years." "A nation of eighty millions must hereafter look exclusively to Its own writers for ll theatre entertainment, it Is tho American playwright's golden op portunity. This, therefore, enforces u policy of hastening thn development of buniM products." Sir Thomas then outlined what he coulilerH a feaslblu plan to accomplish this result. Tho potential dramatist. Sir, Thomas holds, Is llrst a newspaper man. The success of Piof. Baker's classes in playwrltlng at Harvard la the Dramatists Society and the prac ticability of this manner of worlt In dicate, he said, tint If In thu large cities of the country sufficient Interest could be awakened among a group of writers many good results would follow. "I do not think," continued Sir. Thomss, "that this method would neces-1 sarliy turn out a great play or even a - successful one, but I do believe that after It wan produced the men who had been instructed by Its production would onploy the same methods to make pla of their own subjects about which they no doubt ftel deeply and ale thoroughly Informed." Oliver Slorosco has set his plan fur 1 the prvJuctlon of five new plas In New York b"fore tho Christmas holi days. Thn llrst will probably be Louis K. Anspacher's three act comedy drama The I'tichastened Woman." It I scheduled for presentation about the llrst of October.
