recounted the history of the organisa
tion of the Community Chest, and by 1
Elwood Street, director of the Che-t. !
who outlined objectives and purposes of
the organization.
Eight Points for Future.
Mt. Street suggested that the activi- '
ties for the year ahead "might well be
built upon eight fundamental points”
as follows:
“Following out the policies of rela
tionship to agencies, to contributors and
to the community which have already
been established: of bringing our sub
scriptions for this year to the highest
possible point; of collecting and ad
ministering economically the funds
which may be subscribed; of distribut
ing these funds on the basis of effec
tive service; of continuous public in
formation; of becoming more intimately
familiar with the member agencies and
their problems; of extending the Com
munity Chest to whatever may be the
additional territory and agencies which
should be included, and of building up
a stronger campaign for the greater j
needs of the year 1930.”
A resolution was adopted expressing I
the ‘‘sincere and deep appreciation” of
the board of trustees ‘‘to Mr. Street, the
director of the Community Chest, and
to his co-workers, aids and assistants
in the headquarters and offices of the
chest during the recent annual chest
campaign, for their loyal, unselfish and
unflagging service in the planning and
detailed execution” of the chest cam
paign. A resolution also was adopted
expressing regret over the recent death
of Ivan C. Weld, president of the
Washington Chamber of Commerce,
who was a member of the organization
committee and the board of trustees
of the chest. Both resolutions were
introduced by Newbold Noyes, chair
man of the resolution* committee.

Thornton Wilder Discusses

Thornton Wilder spanned the whlrl-
I pool of questions arising from his
! famous book, "The Bridge of San Luis

bridge of understanding along the high
way of literary development in his
remarks on "Literature in Its Relation
to Life.” included in a lecture last, night
before a Washington audience of some
2,900 people at the Central High School
Auditorium, one of the series of Com
munity Center programs which has
j brought so many interesting artists to
] the school stage this season.
In discussing his book, Mr. Wilder

It was not to answer any great question
that he wove the tale of the bridge

to present one for the reader’s consid

is net to answer questions but to put
them fairly" summed up the writer.
Interspersed with humor which
sparkled unexpectedly through his most
.serious thoughts, Mr. Wilder charmed
his audience quite as much with his
colorful language as with the wisdom of
his thoughts on literature and its place
In human life. His most quotable sen
tence on this subject, and the one that
every thinking person perhaps carried
home with him, was in regard to the
everyday reading of the average man.
“We should all have in our library or
in our possession,” said Mr. Wilder,
“two book lists —one of the books we
should read at our first opportunity,
and the other of books we should read
at our best opportunity. The first, I
need not say, should contain the books
of the moment—books we wish to pe
ruse. being ashamed to admit that we
haven't read; and the second, the books
we wish to absorb—the literature of
all time.”
Following the lecture. Mr. Wilder was
entertained at a buffet supper at the
A. A. U. W. Club.
Recent experiments hsve shown that
a number of different kinds of mush
rooms contain a very fine type of cel

Trial of Five Men Reaches
Summation Stage in

Br the AssocUted Press.
NEW YORK, March 28.—John C. and
i Herbert T. Locke and three associates,
who are on trial on charges of using
the malls to defraud in an alleged 85.-
000,000 copper stock swindle, yesterday
heard themselves described as men of
vision by defense counsel as their case
reached the summation stage in Fed
eral court.
John B. Wright, a Tuczon. Ariz., at
torney, told the Jury that the Canario
Copper Co. mines were all that the de
fendants claimed them to be in litera
ture sent to prospective stockholders.
Attacking the testimony of John W.
Finch, Government mine expert, who
had said the Canario ore was of poor
quality, the attorney said that Finch
had not inspected the mines thoroughly.
He said the defendants had acted
merely on their vision of the mines’
possibilities and were guilty of no
Walter Godfrey, chief of defense
counsel, said the defendants had fol
lowed the approved Wall Street methods
in marketing their securities.
The defense had rested earlier in the
day. Neither of the Locke brothers was
called to testify. George F. Shurtleff.
