1 New York 1
NEW YORK, Oct. 3.?The greater
depression which attended yesterday's
stock dealings was again due mainly to
familiar causes or conditions, namely,
steady liquidation of securities of a
character heretofore favored by Investors.
Recent severe recessions in rails
were extended by one to four points,
few issues of that division escaping the
process of r? tlrtlon. New low records
were registered by the St. Paul. New
York Central, and B. & 0., while many
other transportation stocks came within
easy approach of their mlalmums.
No developments of a specific or definite
nature were offered In explanation
of the movement, but In well Informed
circles the belief still obtained
that ths ailing emanated from foreign
quarters. The bears were not slow to
avail themselves of the decline, which
was accelerated from time to time by
th6 extension of short contracts.

Seventy-Nine Have Been
Received Through the
Medical Society.
% ' ' ' ~
An effort to secure physicians for
the United Statps Medical Ueserve
corps was one of the purposes of the
public meeting, which was held last
evening in the Fairmont High school
building. Two hundred people were
present, but by far the majority were
tnedicu! men.
"Major J. U. Cannady. ol Charleston,
of he United States Medical itcserve
Corps, last evening stated that 150
physicians from the State Medical Society
r.ad applied tor commissions, but
only seventy-nine of them had lifted
them. Major Cannady was accompanied
by First Lieutenant William C.
Slusher, the traveling examiner of the
Medical Reserve Corps, whose home Is
id Blueiield. Those who have not thus
tar been called will be summoned
thortly. Five doctors nave responded
front Fairmont, but ns vet they have
not lifted their commissions.
Needs of the Medical Reserve Corps
wee outlined by Dr. Robert '.ticket son,
of Brooklyn, N. *., who represents the
Mfuical Reserve Council of toe United
States. A very interesting illustrated
lec'ure was given by Major Henry 0.
Jump, of Philadelphia. He showed motion
pictures of sceucs taken en the
"Battle Front." An address was delivered
by Dr.K. Rader. of Huntington,
president of the State Medical Society.
ThTr was illustrated. During the evening
Surgsf-i John MeMullen. of the
United Sta'es Department of Public
Health, of Iouisvllle. Ky.. delivered an
add'ess on Trachoma.

' GIRLS MUSI Gl
BEFORE JHEUWIM
New Rule Goes Into Effec1
at the Y. M. C.
A.
In order to to take a swim in the V.
M. C. A. pool, the junior and high
school girls must participate in the
gvmnastic classes. In other words the
rule is, "You must "gym" to "swim."
It is generally the case that girls of
this age like the water but not the
work of the gymnasium. This new ruling
is expected to counteract this difficulty
and bring many more of the girls
into the physical training work.
A large number of girls were out yesterday
to taae part in the first girls'
gymnasium classes. In all there are
four classes for the girls as follows:
matrons at 9:00 a. m., grade girls at
4:00 p. m., high school girls at 4:45 p.
m. and business girls at 7:30 p. m.
It is not necessary for the girls entering
the gymnasium classes to wear
? o-? ? .v??wv.?u hud 10 pteierrea. Ap'
parel made of similar weight will pass
the requirements.
