It Is closely allied In plan and or ganization with the Itockcrelter founda tion, tho Bureau of Municipal ltesearcn, and other Rockefeller Institutions. . Scope Just Revealed. The scope and extent of tho Investiga tions of tho Institute into the Federal Government has but been revealed. The director of tho Institute (a William F. 'JWUloughby, professor of jurisprudence nd politics at Princeton University. Ho will be In chargo of tho probe. He recently visited tho New York Bureau of .(Municipal Research, and thore asked ,M to men who are "best suited for tQovernmental Inquiries." .

JThoso who hold this vlow point out how closely It will follow tho Bureau of Mu nicipal Research In Its operation and fiow nearly allied the two propositions are in their officering and management. . Tho Bureau of Municipal Research Is largely BUpportod by tho money of Mr. '(Rockefeller, most of It through the kfttockcfeller Foundation. The report of the foundation of December 29, 1916, pontalns this Item: "Bureau of Municipal Research, J40, HOO." Up to December 81, 1914, when the fast financial report of the Bureau of .(Municipal Research was Issued, Rocke feller wan shown to have led all other contributors, with a totatl of gifts of 1125.000. R. Fulton Cutting came next with niO.ThS. It Is thought that since tho Issuing of the lost report, Rocke feller's contributions to the bureau have been much larger. A An analysis oi mo Doara oi inp innu tute rhows that most of the men have teen connected with Rockefeller enter prises or charities for aome time. The college presidents have sottcn (donations for their universities from Mr. Rockefeller, and a close bond la paid to exist botween the others and the oil magnate In various matters. .

HOOSIER POET DEADASSUMES AMERICANS FOLLOWING STROK E He Got 2 Black Eyes In a Merry Can Rush NEW TORK, July a. "wny, judge, 1 wouldn't hit that young man; we're tho best or rrlends. and we even 'rush the can' together." George Williams thus addressed Re corder William J. Cain, when he was arraigned on a charge of having at tacked Stanley Molock, a neighbor. Aloiock's eyes were blackened and there were bruises on hlB face. "I guess you rushed tho can so much you got overheated," said tho recorder, turning to Williams. "I'll tine you io. Fearing Burial Alive, Orders Arteries Cut NEW YORK., July . Robert Jt. Lyon, who died on May 28, wrote In his will: "I desire to Impress upon my wife and my executors that I have an In tense dread of botng burled alive. I therefore charge .them, and also such surgeon as they may select, after my apparent death and before my funeral, to have my body subjected to thorough testa of death, and to cause the radial artery at either wrist to be cut across by a competent surgeon." James Whltcomb nlley Is mourned all over tho English apekklng world to day. Eut dcepert Is the griof among the young, for ho long ago won the right to be termed poet latjreato of tho chil dren, and among the very old, especial ly among the grizzled told farmers who llvo along the road fim Greenfield to Indianapolis. They know him as "Jim," And Jim thoy called him as ho made his weekly trip from Indianapolis but to Greenfield, stopping and chatting with each of them on his way adn occasionally pausing to play a game with the chil dren who know ana loved him. Know him? Why v shouldn't thoy, along that road? For wasn't "Jim" Riley born right thertt In Greenfield in 1W3. And hain't he been around those "ports" ever since? And wasn't It over that sclfsamo road, poor, unhappy "Jim" trudged many, ft time when his father tried to make him study law? "Alius Prowlin' Aroun7 "By crackoy, sir, that was funny." quoth one of these old Inhabitants to an interviewer not no tong as'o. "There was 'Jim.' his head full of rhymes, and him alius prowling aroun' in the voods, and no uso for indoors at all, and his good, well-ncanln' old dad trying to make him stud v law." -Jim- no more distinguished himself earlier, In the vlllagesahool, than ho did in his father's law office. His chief distinction waa at the Fri day afternoon entertainments, when his ability In elocution and aa a mimic amazed teachers who could get him to show Uttlo Interest in school affairs on other daya. He even wrote vorae of his own and recited it on those Friday afternoons, but his father, a methodical: serious minded man, did not "take much stock In poetry." After an Irksome few months In his father's law office young Riley aaw a chance of escape. An Itinerant medl clno man came to town, with a band. lurid pictures, free samples, and all, and he needed an extra man. Here Riley saw a chance to see the world. So he hired out as a helper- and. for a year ho mado hla way painting new and more striking signs for the 'doctor." Became Sign Painter. By that time sign painting looked bet ter to young Riley than the law, so he returned to his home town and appren ticed himself to a German sign painter there. But his wanderlust was not satisfied by this work at home, so he went to Anderson, .Ind., where he was Joined by other kindred spirits who could also paint signs at a pinch, and they organ ized themselves Into a group called "The Graphics" and started forth to paint signs for merchants In each town they struck. Riley spent hla spare momenta scrib bling verso. By this time he had de cided he waa to be a writer. He got some ot his r works published In country papers. These same country papers, which had to be cajoled Into firlntlng his verses thjn, now are most Ikely to have tho faded clippings framed and hanging In the front office. Many a small weekly, some of which have long ago disappeared, and others ot which have become metropolitan dailies, thus can boost ot having once printed an "original poem by Riley." On Road Two Tears. For two years "The Graphics" were on the road. Then young Riley got the chance he wanted. He waa offered the city-editorship of a paper at Anderaon. That meant that he waa to write editorials, get new subscribers, and collect all the "locals," bits of personal news, but in addition he wrote a dally column of serious verse on the editorial pago. The young editor waa pained because this attracted little attention aa com pared with the squibs of humorous verse he scattered through the paper as "Alters." ., Riley also began to send his more seri ous efforts to magazines and bigger newspapers, but the rejection slips wero InAvlfnStA find rilftheartAnlnsr. hh h thought himself to study the verse that was published in the pages he wanted to break Into. "Why, it's no better than mine, only no one ever heard ot me," he told a friend one day. "Why if I would write a poem and send it in under some big name they'd print It fast enough." Wrote In Pot's Style. That Idea buzzed around In Riley's head- for a time and got him Into trou ble. He wrote a poem In Imitation of the stylo of Edgar Allen Poe. This poem, copied on the fly leaf of an old dictionary, was sent to an editor of a paper In Kokomo. Ind. This editor waa let in on the secret. The penmanship waa In Imitation of Poo's. Riley and this editor and some friends cooked up a story to the ef fect that the dictionary belonged to an old man in the neighborhood. They said he told a story about a dissolute young man who had asked a night's lodging from this old man's grandfather, a tavern keeper in Vir ginia. Ho left next day, without pay ing his bill, but in the flyleaf ot the book waa found a poem. And thla poem ran: Leonalnte entela named, her And they took the light Ot the laurhlnr tars and framed her In a .mile of white; And they made her. hair of gloomy Midnight, and her eyes Of bloomy Moonshine, and they brought her to me In the solemn night. In a solemn night of summer. When my heart of gloom Blosaomed up to greet the comer Like a rose In bloom: AH foreboding! that distressed me I forgot as Joy caressed me (lAlng Joy, that caught and pressed me In the arms ot doom). Only spake the little llsper In the angel-tongue; Yet I, listening, heard her whisper: "flnnn Are onW illnr Here below that they njay trier you Tale but told you to deceive you Bo must Leonalnle leave you While her love Is young." Then dod cmlted and It waa morning". Matchless and supreme. Heaven's flory seemed adorning Earth with IU esteem; Every heart but mine seemed gifted With the voloe ' Prayer, and lifted. Where my Leonalnle drifted From me like a dream. Tnls poem was widely copied, students of Poo argued the authenticity of it. by nany critics it was acclaimed the lit erary "And" of the century, and then the hoax was exposed. I ' BBBBBBBBBBV?!.

(Continued from First 1'age.) tho pseudonym of Benjamin F. Johnson, of Boone, Jn tho seventies. Before that time he had contributed scraps of verso and humorous comment to Indiana news papers. Riley received honorary degrees from Yale, Wabash Collego, and University of Pennsylvania. Riley was a bachelor, but one of his most famous poems was "An Old Sweet heart of Mine." a poem of lovo and ten derness that has probably never been eauaied Dy an American aumor. Works which endeared him to the children of America Included "The Rag gedy Man," "Little Orphan Annie," and many others published In a volume known as "Rhymes of Childhood." Leading American Poet. Riley had written but little during tho latter years of his life. His quaint Hoosier dialect which predominated in his leading poems, however, as well as their subject matter stamped him os one of America's leading poets. "Good-by, Jim, Tako Kccr Ycrself," Is one of his most widely quoted poems. Illlev had a aunlnt. slmplo philosophy which eiidenred him to readers through out the world. Although wealthy from his writings, Rlloy lived simply. His homo for years linn been on Lockerbie street, In Indiana- polls. This strcot, a quiet, seciuuea thoroughfare, waa mndc famous by the Riley poem, "Lockcrblo Street." By tho terms of a will mnilo some time ago.

July 23.-Ellza-beth Bowers Is dead at the Relief Homo hero at tho age of 104 years. She never had a visitor In the eighteen years tho Should an American be "requested" or "required", to stand, or should it be assumed that he will know what to do when the "Star-Spangled Banner" Is played? The question has arisen because of the patriotic Impulse of Washington banda to end their publto concerts with the national anthem. Threo concerts were given yesterday by aa many banda, and in each lnstanco tho "Star-Spangled Banner" waa the flnato. Several daya ago Lieut William H. Santelmann. leader of the famous Ma rine Band, concluded nis -programs witn a printed request that the audience tho audience would be required to stand whllo tho band played tho national an them. . A subsequent notice ' waa that stand, and the men removo their hats at attention. Then along came Director Lawrence M. Hurdlo, of tho Naval Gun Factory Band, who printed this brief nptlce on his program: "An American should know what" to do when tho national anthem la plnyed." Director Hurdle doesn't request or require: he assumes. Leader Samel mann, who is Just as Insistent upon recognition of the "Star-Spangled Banner" goes at the audience both ways, nnd avers that he has seen fn stances where an American didn't know what to do, or at least didn't do It. In other words, as tho debater would say, there have been persons at Ma rine Band concerts who did not stand at attention hence the warning. The custom of playing the National Anthem at the conclusion of band concerts in this city, and the steps now being taken to get certain thoughtless Americans to exhibit some feeling- of patriotism when the stir ring notes are heard, have aroused considerable public Interest and are expected to result In a reawakening of the patriotic spirit. yesterday In the surrogate's office.

A natlon-wldo tribute was paid Riley In schools on his alxty-second birth day by the reading ot his poems, and addresses about his life, and on the same day the Stato of Indiana ceased lla tvnrlr nnd Inlnnri with VI eat Derson- acea from far and near in paying 1 tribute to blm at his llttlo homo in Lockerbie street.

There la the tale of tho house in Lockerbie street for example. Like a Country Lane. Tho street is a narrow one. and looks like a country lane, yet it Is the best known spot In Indianapolis. A few years ago the city council took up the matter of condemning the houses along tho street and widening the thor oughfare. The bill was favorably re ported and a day set for Its passage. When the councllmen ontered the chamber and the presldont took his seat he found a letter. It was a mes sage from tho Hooslor Poet, pleading In verse for "Dear Old Lockerbie Street." Tho president of the council read the poem to the body, then movod to table the condemnation Mil. The bill went to the waste basket by a unani mous vote. What Indiana and the nation thought of Riley waa attested at the celebra tion of his birthday laat year. More than 2.000 of hla friends gathered at a theatrical performance and later at a banquet in nis nonor. He waa showered with gifts from every part of the country.
