Supplies Boys For Army and Navy Herbert Vandyke Acts as Sponsor for Young Men Who Wish to Enlist Has Aided 30,000 to Find i Vocation With American Fighting Forces. By CARLTON TEN EYCK. NEW YORK, Sept. 7. -The "Father of the Arniy" is a title that could aptly be applied to Herbert Vandyke, a kindly appearing, middle-aged man who in the past thirtv-one vears has turned over 30.000 young men to Uncle Sam to train in his army or navy. He is to be found on the fourth floor of an office building at 3 Park Row. The word "Investments" on the door of his office tells what his regular business is, but gives no hint of his recreation, which is the supply ing of young men to the fighting forces of the United States. Vandyke acts as guardian for minors who want to enlist in the army or navy and who have no parents or guardians to furnish the necessary bond of $250. In thirty-one years Vandyke himself esti mates that he has acted as guardian for more than 30,000 youngsters. He does not have to furnish the bond required by the surrogate, as in his case it is always waived. FROM PATRIOTIC MOTIVES. .TuEt how it camp that Vandyke has n-ted as official sponsor for so man ouths and win it l.s that he doejn't have to furnish a bond as others would, is Interesting. Yandvke doesn t like to talk about it He sa s that ne dislikes the publicity, that he has al ways acted from patriotic motive i. He has never received a cent for what he has done, although he has often spent monej out of his own poclft He declares that he has never expect ed anj recompense and does not want any. Back in 1S83. Vandyke was sitting in the office of Daniel G. Rollins, tbn turroBate of New York The guard ian clerk also was sitting there, talk ing with a sad-faced, poorly drebsed bey "This is sl pretty hard case." said the guardian clerk, turning to Van dyke "This boj wants to go iiuo the navy. His parents are dead and 1 e has no relatives to go on his bond. He is a l!kel looking joungstei and craz to enlist 1 wish something lould be done for him " andj ke became interested at onif ftcr talking with the bov he to'd the rurrogate that the bond ought to waived He said he would sponsor for the boy The surrogate consentci and Vandyke thus began his caret-r as a guardian for jouths entering the army and navy. Since I have been acting as guar.) ian for the boys I have had some peculiar experiences." Vandyke sai.I 'If I had known what it was going to lead to I never would have taken ft up. But after I once got started in U I hated to give it up and bo I never did. In all these years not more thin ; twenty boys have failed to do their duty I keep a record of all the boys that I act as guardian for Then aftr they enter either the navy or arm the officers keep me advised as to their conduct. Funerals LABOR DAY EVENTS ' I formerly had a complete record of "II the boja. but I lost it In .1 fire some icars ago Since then I havo hen Keeping track of them by a card ind Ostein Whenever I receive a report on a boy. I just Jot it down on his card Rid so I alwas know what he is doing. J have learned that the navy or arm. ether one. Is a mighty good place for n ourgster who has no home. Ho re ceives training there that he would get mvvliere else and he lives well. The of-H'-ers never abuse any of the boys. On ' 'e contrarv. there is the closest rela tionship between the officers and the rcen. "The boj"3 as a rule are very appre ciative for what I do for them. I get lts of letters from them and when they i-it New York they always come to seo J"e. I had ono curious experience A boy of twelve, lugging a grip nearly as big as himself, walked into mv offlco cno day. Ilr had been to the recruit ing station and they had sent him to rne He told me thai he wanted to en list in the navv He said that he lied in Massachusetts and that his father lad sent him to New York to join the liaw I later learned that was the only lals-ehood he had told me I got his mother s name Hnd address from him rnd then got him a place to stay over r.ight I told him to come back up to the office lvxt dav and 1 would e what I could do for him. "In the meantime. I wired his mother and she started for New York at once She came to the office early In tho morning, and when the boy came back that day I had her in the next room I told him I had a place for him to go und he was greatly tickled. Then I called his mother and told him that the place was home and he was to go there with her At first he seemed a little angry, but ho returned home with her and I heard later that he Is r-erfectly satisfied now to stay there."

GREAT BROOD MARES Unprecedented Number of Bel gian and French Percheron Mares Brought Over. The Bureau of Animal Industry has just published a list of horses imported for breeding purpose., in ij WnCn ,8. closes th growing popularity of the Belgian draughter In America. Tho Belgian was a negligible factor In the draft horse situation in this country only a few vears ago. and comparative ly few ho'semen not In close touch with tho market are yet avv.aro of the extent to which these big. willing, clean legged, powerful animals are now In demand. For the first time since America Im ported last .year 2.TS draft stallions and mares In Europe another breed has Jumped to the front to really rival the French Percheron In popular favor. According to the Government records, there wore Importers began buying uraii. siaiuons ana mares, and of these J. were Jrencu Percherons. 0i Bel gians. Tv English Shires, 98 Scottish Clydesdales, and S8 SiffTolk Punches. Among the Percherons and Belgians nrougnt over were nearly vjciu registered mares. This is a very large proportion or tho total importations. Until a few years ago tno shipments to this coun try wero made up almost exclusively of stallions. In view of the predictions of tho Lon don IJve Stock Journal that all Im proved breeds of horses on the Conti nent will be exterminated before the war Is over, the Importation of so many Belgian and Percheron .mares on the eve of hostilities seems almost providential. The large number of representative mares no.v In this country will Insure the preservation of both breeds, regard less of what may happen to the par ent stock In Europe. Blue Ribbons for Highball.

I horse show MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. ji -Seventy men. who a year ago were regarded as hopeless and confirmed drunkards, are today living sober and exemplary lives as the result of a six months' courso at the State Farm for Inebriates at Will- mar, according to Dr. George H. Free man, the superintendent. This number is about a third of the Institution's "graduates." "Wt have a few more than 200 men under oui parole system." explained Dr. Freeman, "and about one-third of them are 'making good.' When one consid ers what little authority we have at the farm and also what limited amount of supervision we have over the inmates after they leave. I feel that the results are gratif.vlng. Ordinarily we get the most hopeless cases, those who have b.er. abandoned by friends and family nnd I consider It a good record to save one-third of them. "To make our Institution more ef fective we must havo a custodial build ing where those who are inclined to leave may bo restrained until they are restored to a normal state of mind and arc anxious for a cure. "Many of those committed to the farm leave before we regard It safo for thm to do so. and we are unable to prevent their departure, for there Is no rcsfralnt. 'Wc want all those committed to the Institution to remain six months and after that to be about a year under pa role With a little more authority and a larrtr staff of parole agents I am con vinced that we can make a much better showing. The institution Is only eighteen months old and every step that has been taken has been an experimint "Sometlmes we have had to retrace our steps and we still are feeling our way. At the same time the more fun damental problems probably have been worked out and, if the Lcglslatum will allow the erection of a custodial build ing, wc will feel that our Institution will be in position to extend its usefulness."

EUROPEAN PLAN, first-class in every respect, size of the Holland House in New York, steel con struction, fireproof, every sleeping room with private bath, all baths with out side windows, steam heat, electric light, complete elevator service, telephones in rooms in a word, a thoroughly up-to-date, modern, metropolitan hotel in a small town, with small prices. THE MOHICAN HOTEL is in every respect a strictly first-class New York h tel, located in a little town of twenty thousand inhabitants. This is unique among all the hotels in the world. Apart Irom resort hotels, no town anywlui (he ie of New London has a hotel in any seiiic comparable with THE MOHICAN. Xcw London is exceptionally well lo cated half-way between New York and Boston, with admirable train service be tween the two cities and other points in Connecticut and Rhode Island. New London is a delightful summer town and a tine winter residential town, where one has quiet and fresh, pure air from Lone Island Sound. The cost of living to permanent or transient guests at Till:" MOHICAN HOTEL, in point of comforts, luxuries and cuisine, is less than in any first-class hotel in the world. The prices that ob tain at THE MOHICAN HOTEL would be impos sible in a city the size of New York, or any other large city. Clean, comfortable bedrooms with pri vate baths are as low as $1-50 A DAY, and to per manent guests a handsome reduction in price from the transient scale. THE MOHICAN HOTEL is run strictly on the European plan. Its cuisine compares favorably with the best hotels in the world. Fresh sea-food from Long Island Sound is at the very door of the hotel.

' V vxX.v.4Lvi-cts2: , ton, THE MOHICAN HOTEL is the ideal place for a week-end automobile party. The roads leading to New London from all points are excellent. But most important is the fact that this hotel, within a little more than two hours' distance of New York, can furnish an attractive home at prices which many people of refined tastes can afford to pay, but who cannot afford similar luxuries in the city of New York, or any other large city. One not only gets the.se luxuries and comforts in New Lon don, and gets them at from one-half to one-third th price, but gels a measure of health in the siiv.j'u nfs of that town and its fresh, invigorating sea breezes that New York and Boston cannot furnish. iWoreover, the prices at which you can secure a good home at THE MOHICAN HOTEL are much less than it would cost you to produce equal com forts and equal luxuries and an equal grade of living in an individual home of your own.
