IL Im elWs AA dras to the eGaSStI.-rusit Needbam RAd .hentable. ineident Ja the ennemt exercises of 1965 of the CoIumbian Univer sity occurred yesterday afternoon, when several hundred students, candidates for degrees, professors and trustees of the in stitution. marched In praeasen from the university buildings to .the National The ater. where the bacalaeate services were held. The playhouse- was almost en tirely filled and the exercises were pre Sided over by: Dr. Charles W.- Needham, president of Columblan, and Rev. Dr. Randolph H. McKim. rector of the Church of the Epiphany, delivered the baccalamre. ate address. The procession was something of an in novation In the regular eastern. of the uni versity and aroused an unusual degree of Interest. The students assembled at their several schools at 3 O'clock and the pro cession was formed at 30 O'clock in three divisIone-the undergraduate students, the graduating classes and the members of the faculties and- olcieers of the school. Heading the line were the undergraduates In their regular garb. The graduates were arrayed in their caps and gowns, and the profesrs, who brought up the rear of the procession, wore caps with golden tassels and gowns and hoods of various colors -to Indicate the special branch of study In which they had obtained their doctor's de gree. The blue represented philosophy; the green, medicine, and the red,- divinity. Arrangement of the Procession. Dr. Channing Rudd directed the arrange ments for the procession and was marshal of the parade. The first division Included the undergraduate students of the depart ments oflaw, jurisprudence and diplomacy, dentistry, medicine, Corcoran Scientific School, Columbian College and the school of graduate studies. The second division comprised the can didates for degrees from the various schools. They numbered over two hun dred. The third division, which numbered almost as many, included the instrueors, members of the faculty, . the presidnt's council, board of trustees, the president and guests. The collegiate parade proceeded in double - file down 15th street to Penasylvania ave nue, ana then6e to the north side of E street In front of the t ter. where the column halted and divid, -the tines facing each othir with a space of abbut six feet Intervening. As President Needham and the members of the faculties, passed be tween the files the students removed their hats. Among the gentlemen in the proces sion were Justice Harbsn and Justice Brewer of the United States Supreme Court, Judge-yeelle of the Court of Claims and Hannis Taylor. - After the faculty had pod the more ad vanced classes fell In behind In pairs. The first of these were the ca=didates for the. degree of doctor of civil: law. instead of the nine who are eligible for the degree, however, only five were in line. Mrs. Emma Reba Bailey was one of these, and was greeted with applause as she walked along by herself. National Emblenv6o.Jcuous. On entering the theatethea faculty, uni versity authorities and gisetA took places upon the stage, while the students occupied seats In the main body of the playhouse. American flags were displayed .in profus'on and formed the most 'conspicuous feature of the decorations, while the school and class colors were'draped at intervals about the balconies, Above the center of the stage on a large banner was the Inscription, "C. U.. 1903." After the gathering had been called to order by President Needham, Rev. J. Mac Bride Sterrett, D. D., read the 'Scriptures and led the students In reciting the Apos tIe's Creed and the Lord's Prayer. Mr. J. Walter Humphrey sang a bass solo, "God So Clothed the Grass," and the University Glee Club led In singing "Onward, Chris tian Soldiers." Dr. McKim took his text from I Corinth lans, 16; 13: "Quit you like men, be strong." During his sermon, which lasted for over half an hour, the speaker commanded the closest attention of the audience. He said inpr:Dr. Ec~m's Adress, "The words of the text have a martial ring. They are such as Caesar might have addressed to the 10th LegIon, and they were, In fact, addriaed by Paul to-a brave band of Christian soldiers In Corinth, who were battling for purity In a profligate city. I would address them to you young men, who are just going Into the arena of life. Hitherto you have been fostered within the walls of a university, but now the conflict of life Is soon to begin. The responsibilities and the- freedom of young manhood. marke the beginning of the real battles of line. it Is In the early dawn of manhood that the hardest battle must be fought to secure moral victory. The use then of the term battle is not a mere .figure of speech, for there is no more real warfare than that waged by the young maar who is grappling with temptation and- trying to climb tp what Is high and pure. "This conception of life is a true one, and is referred to by Christ and by Paul, "As you pass the threshold of manhood I would ask you to look at the Uife of Christ, to consider Christ not as the sub lime and the majestic, but as a man, as the embodiment of love, charity, sympathy, courage, denuncIation of evil, contemnpt for hypocrisy. He is the model patriot, teach er, guide and friend of men. As Hagrew in stature, knoweige and -wisdom He also battled with temptation as you have to do. and He overcame by prayer and human strength, not by divine power. Remember also that Christ was discouraged, lonely, misunderstood, forsaken and crucified while still a young man. Christ Source of Inspiration. "Such, then, 1s the standard of human ity for manhood, but -whence Is to come the Inspiration and the *,ghk needed to strive after such a standant it is one thing to accept a standeg,,sad another to live by it.

[ssue Aising Under Tntmrpretation of the Liene Law. An Interesting question, Involving the point as to whether under given conditions the major and superintendent of police is superior to the District Cowmisioners, is to he referred to the corporation counsel upon the suggestion of Commnissioner West. The matter arises over an interpretation of the license law passed by Congress July 1, 19(V, in which It was provided that the issuance fo certain classes of licenses should he contingent upon the approval of the superintendent of police. The case in volved In the piresent instance is that of H. Clay Davis. who desires a' license as a palmist and whose application has re celved an adverse report fromn the pole department. The matter became the sub- I jeet of- a hearing before the Commission- J erst late in April. when the applicant was represented by Messrs. Lambert & Baker. The hearing was regarded as satisfactory to Mr. Davis. but when the papers were referred to Major Sylvester, that of~cial said he believed the Intention of that pro vision of the law requiring a certiflcate. from his department would he best sub served If the license were not granted. The attorneys in the case have called. upon ommissner West askring for a de cision in the case. When confronted with the report fr'om the police chief -they sug-, gested that the matter be referred to the corpration counseL. This action has been taken by, Cnonmisioner West in the fol lowing iiorsement: "The law concerning ecses of tis kind is expileit.
