BE MADE BIG GYM Maj. Bell Sees Site as Ideal for Erection of Arena for Indoor Sports. A now suggestion, that the Bright wood reservoir, at Sixteenth and Ken nedy streets, be used as the founda tion for a municipal structure for in door athletics and recreation when it becomes useless as a part of the wa ter system, was put forth today by .Engineer Commissioner Bell. J. S. Garland, superintendent of the water department, which controls the spacious strip of land occupied hy the reservoir, started the discussion a few days ago by proposing that the two large storage basins be converted into a city stadium. He stated at the time that his idea was merely to be considered as a suggestion and that Some other plan might be more ad van lager's This reservoir, situated at one of the entrances to Rock Creek Park, will be abandoned for water storage purposes when the new conduit and reservoirs are completed about two years hence. Maj. Bell said today he thought it t tine idea to convert the spot into a municipal recreation center, but at first thought it seemed to him that i tie laying off of an open stadium might not result in the maximum use of the place hy the public. “It might be possible,” the Coni mislsoner observed, to use the reser voir basins for swimming pools and an athletic track and still erect above them a structure in -which various in door forms of recreation would be available.” The major said he doubted whether •resent transportation facilities would be ample to make this reser \oir a desirable point for a large stadium where great crowds would ■ assemble. Some other cities, the commissioner continued, have made considerable headway in providing for indoor ath letic recreation. At the present time the question of the best use to which the reservoir should lie put when it is no longer needed by the water department is in its infancy and no doubt many pro posals will be advanced for study between now and time when definite action is to be taken. RECORD CROWDS SEE CHRYSANTHEMUMS Largest Attendance in 24 Years of Flower Shows Reported Yesterday. More people visited the free ''mum” show of the Department of Agriculture yesterday than ever before attended any flower show under the United States Government auspices on one day—and these shows have been held for 24 years.

This makes near ly 20.000 individuals who have thus far seen the more than 1,000 varieties of selected Japanese and pompon blooms. Dr. William A. Taylor, chief of the Bureau of Plant Industry, under whose administration the chrysanthe mum show is being held, today named one of the most promising of the new seedling pompons for Alexander Bui- j loch of Rochester.

This new bloom is a large flowered pompon with a yhite center and the outer edge of tiie petals shaded pink. Three other new seedlings were named by Dr. Taylor—the Louise M Stimson. p. semi-double bronze; the Grace Cobern. a double yellow of striking appearance, and the Olga Kchamberger, a double rose pink. Because of the great interest mani fested by the public in this year’s show, and appeals made to the of ficials of the department, it has been decided to keep the show open for one extra day, Thursday, so that the -how will be open dally from 9 a.m. ■o 9 p.m., closing Thursday night at '■) o'clock. The big attendance is continuing today with a waiting line having to be formed most of the time. This afternoon a number of schools are sending the children by classes un der the guidance of their teachers. Tomorrow the members of the Diplo matic Corps and attaches have been specially invited. As fast as any flower In the show wilts it is being replaced by a fresh plant from the propagating houses, so that at the close the show will be just as good, if not better, than when it opened.

MED TO MAKE SELF-OEFENSE PLEA Rosenburg Counsel Will Claim H? K ! !M Clancey to Save His Own Life. While defense counsel today was constructing a barrier of self-defense to save from the gallows Harry P. Rosenberg, who is held on charges of murdering Krncst Clancy and shooting Vernon S. Story in the cli max of a feud on Fourth street be low K street Saturday afternoon, po lice today were tightening their In vestigation In an effort to make out I a complete wilful murder case. ) It became known today that Sergt. I Thompson of the Sixth precinct had ! succeeded in getting an eye-witness 1 account of the shooting from Vernon j >S. Story, the wounded man. who is in I a serious condition at Galttnger Hos- I pital. Official announcement was j made by Bertrand Emerson, jr.. chief • counsel for the accused, that self- I defense would be his argument. Evidence of Story, Substantially Story has recounted tiie happening:; of Saturday after noon in the following fashion: Clancy and he had gone to a house to collect for a delivery of bootleg , liquor. They had left and were about to enter their automobile. They were unarmed. They had not been to Rosenberg’s residence, on the cor ner of Fourth and K streets. Rosen berg appeared on the street. “Let's see him now,” murmured Clancy. “No,” decided Story. "Let’s get into the car and keep out of | trouble.” i Clancy was standing a short dis ' tance in front of the automobile's I rigid front wheel. Rosenberg tired, i Clancy ' dropped. • He fired again, j Story was struck in the abdomen and in the elbow as he was entering the automobile. All statements In the above para graphs are credited to Story by police who are working on the case. The fatal narrative’s continuance is picked up at this juncture by Sergt. Thompson, who arrived on the scene. "Rosenberg did it,” Story told Sergt. Thompson. Colored Chauffeur Vanishes. Thompson, accompanied by Pre cinct Detectives Dowd and Flaherty, rushed for Rosenberg's residence. Policeman O'Meara, also with the party, remained in charge of the group at tiie automobile. During the excitement, however, the colored chauffeur disappeared. Entering Rosenberg’s house, Dowd grabbed Rosenberg. Thompson asked for the revolver. Rosenberg showed him it on the kitchen table. There were five empty cartridges in it. “I shot him,” Rosenberg told Thompson. AM of the above is I vouched for by Sergt. Thompson him self. Charged With Murder. Rosenberg was taken to the sixth precinct station and a charge of murder was entered on the books. He had com menced giving an account of the un derlying motives in the feud be j tween Clancy. Story and himself when Attorney Emerson intervened and silenced his client. Rosenberg's story docs not com pletely jibe with that of Story. Mrs. Rosenberg also supplies a contradic tory detail. She claims that Story i and Clancy came to the store looking ' for Rosenberg. After they had left, I Rosenberg came out. Rosenberg claims they were armed and seeking 1 him. His statement to Lieut. Fred ! Cornwell, supported by past encoun j ters with Story and Clancy, supplies I tho details. It is Rosenberg's con ! lention that he tired at armed men, j while in peril of his life, in an effort I to stave off threatened peril. He adds 1 that the colored chauffeur in the au tomobile scooped up the revolvers of j iiis assailants and disappeared with | them. Police are inclined to he du ; bious on this angle, Capl. Martin i Reilly of the sixth precinct, supervis ing the case, stated today. A search for the co.ored chauffeur will be pros ecuted with vigor, however, Capt. Reilly said. Claims Self-Defense. Attorney Emerson today said thaf' "a careful investigation of the cir cumstances surrounding the death of Clancy indicates that Rosenberg acted in the defense of his life.” Beyond this statement he would say nothing. The inquest tomorrow at the Dis -1 trlct morgue will be held to de termine the cause of the death of Clancy. It has taken on the appear ance of a mere legal formality in the light of developments in the case. An attempt, it is understood, to ob tain the release on bond of Rosen berg will be fought by the District attorney’s office, from which Assist ants Raymond Neuciecker and John 11. Burnett are detailed on the case. In police circles fear was expressed today that the shooting might bring about a small-sized gang feud in the, local underworld. For some time po lice have known of the distinct fac tions in the illicit liquor traffic, be tween bona fide purveying bootleg gers and hi-jacking wholesalers, who first sell liquor and then rob the pur chasers of the consignment. Meas ures are being taken to prevent any crystallization of animosity. NEW Branch Store 9 22 14th St. Do You Need Glasses?
