Bronze Figure of Indian VTarrior
to Be Unveiled at Naval
Academy During June.
1 The Commission of Fine Arts was
• notified yesterday by Rear Admiral A.
L. Willard, commandant of the Wash
ington Navy Yard, that an order has
been placed for a marble base for the
bronze statue of Tecumseh, which will
be placed in the Spring on a pedestal
in front of Bancroft Hall at Annapolis.
The statue has been cast at the navy
yard and is being finished in prepara-
I tion for the expected unveiling and ded
i ication before or during June week,
when commencement exercises are held
at the Naval Academy.
The new statue of Tecumseh, who
was a famed chief of the Creek Indians
of the Southeast and was crushed in
the War of 1812. is to be presented to
the Naval Academy by the class of 1891
and will replace an old wooden statue
which once was the figurehead of a
United States ship of war. Hallowed
traditions gathered for generations
about the wooden statue of the Indian
chieftain and it became one of the re
vered shrines of the midshipmen, who
believed if they threw coins at the
statue good luck would come to them.
A few months ago the old statue was
taken down and a cast made of It in
bronze, which will be presented to the
academy later in the year as a gift of
the class of 1891. The new statue and
the base of marble have been approved
by the Commission of Fine Arts.
Operator* of Beacons Used for Ad
vertising Subject to Fines and
Privately operated airplane beacon
lights which are used purely for adver
tising or other purposes not connected
with aerial navigation will be classed
as “false lights” and the operators will
be subject to fine of $5,000 or five years’
imprisonment, or both, the Department
of Commerce has announced.
Lights of the airplane beacon type
which have been installed for advertis
ing purposes without Department of
Commerce certification have been the
subject of complaints from airplane
pilots, who confuse them with true
lights. Such errors may result in forc
ing the pilot off his course, resulting' in
a possible crash when he is forced to
land in strange territory, it was ex
Private beacon lights may be installed
only under Department of Commerce
regulations, with the approval of aero
nautical organizations in the territory
in which they are to be located, and
must be distinctively aeronautical in
character, marking either a safe landing
field or serving as a landmark on a
course leading to such a field, Depart
ment of Commerce officials pointed out.
Once they are authorized, their contin
uous operation from dawn to daybreak
every night must be guaranteed.
One such private beacon -light has
been authorized in the District of Co
lumbia. It is installed on the Ward
man Park Hotel and points out the
course to Bolling Field.
Southeast Citizens Will Study
Literature Read by School
The spreading of Communistic litera
ture in elementary schools of the Dis
trict was flayed by members of the
Southeast Citizens' Association, meet
ing last night at the Southeast branch
of the Public Library, Seventh street
and Pennsylvania avenue southeast.
In a fiery speech to the group O. J.
Davey, member of the association, de
clared the Communist party here is
working on the minds of children from
10 to 12 years of age who are attending
the graded schools.
“These children are far too young to
realize just what the doctrines of these
Communists are,” Davey said. “I have
talked to several youngsters attending
the graded schools. TTiey are told to
denounce the Boy Scout organization of
America. They are told to fight against
the ‘bosses' of the country, and they
are far too young to comprehend Just
what it is all about.”
The association voted to collect all
Communistic literature which is read
by school pupils, and after careful
study of the propaganda to consider
whether an investigation will be con

Indorsement of MaJ. Gen. Herbert
Crosby for a District Commissionership
was given in a resolution unanimously
passed. Members declared that Crosby’s
capability as a leader of men was
proven, in so much as he had reached
the grade of major general in the United
States Army.
The secretary was directed to ask
the Board of Education to offer Henry
Ford the ground at Thirteenth street
and Potomac avenue southeast as a
site for a vocational school. Members
said that Ford would probably be more
than willing to use part of the SIOO,-
000.000 fund he has donated for school
buildings to build the school. At the
present time the site is being used as
a lumber yard by the District.
A resolution approving the appointing
of matrons for elementary schools in
the District was passed.
