STUDENT OF ST. LOWS
WIIjEJS DEGREE
(Br Th* Anaorlntrd I'rna.)
ST. LOl. IS, MO., June 15.—Loss of
his sight proved no handicap to Wil
liam I). Ely in obtaining his life’s am
bition and proved no obstacle in com
pleting hJs study of law, for today Mr.
Ely, blind for more than eight years,
is entitled to style himself master of
laws, having received the degree at
the commencement exercises of St.
Louis University at the closing of the
school year.
Ely, who was an accountant em
ployed by one of the largest banks of
the city, acquired during that time a
business training, which he declared
prepared him for the study of law.
Misfortune fell upon him, and within
a short time he loßt his only child and
wife. The double shock brought him
to complete prostration from which
he recovered, minus his sight.
Depressed, hut not discouraged, the
stricken man became more deter
mined than ever to reach his goal. He
learned to make brooms at the State
school for the blind, but he tired of
this work and determined to take up
some profession, his choice fell upon
the study of law.
His only living relative, a married
slater, with whom he lived, assisted
him In his study and it is to her that
he gave most credit for achieving his
life’H ambition. Last year Ely was
given the degree of bachelor of law,
ranking third among the large class
of candidates.

PERILOUS, SAYS LEWIS
(Hy Tlif A.mi lutiil I'i-cmh.)
SPRINGFIELD, ILL., June 15.
The state of the coal supply above
ground “demands a conference of mi
ners and operators in the very near
future,” John L. Lewis, President of
the International Mine Workers of
America, said here today. The nation
“faces a coal shortage of unparalleled
Intensity," Mr. Lewis declared, add
ing that "only the sultriness of sum
mer weather keeps the public from
realising the peril of the situation."
FLAG DAY AT HOME
OF BETSY ROSS
In accordance with time-honored
custom, patriotic exercises in front of
the quaint old home of Betsy Ross,
now surrounded on all sides by indus
trial and commercial institutions,
marked the principal observance of
Flag Day in Philadelphia.
Preceding the ceremony at the
home of the Colonial dame whose
hand stitched the tlrst Stars and
Stripes there was a parade in which
members of nearly every veterans* or
ganization and historical society in
the city took part.
Philadelphia claims not only the
(distinction of having produced the
first flag but nlßo the citizen who con
ceived the idea of Flag Day. J. Gran
ville Leach, who is accredited with
having been instrumental in having
the day set aside for especial rever
ence of the flag, died here two weeks
ago. He and Betsy Ross were the
subjects of eulogy by several
speakers.
There was a gathering of thousands
of Boy Scouts in Independence
Square.

SEN. BRADY DELIVERS
ADDRESS OF OCCASION
1 oiling of the vast difference
of attitude toward education to
day, as compared to a few years
hack, and declaring that the op
eration of the new educational
law of Maryland will establish a
system second to none in the
land, State Senator A. Theodore
Brady, of Annapolis, last night
delivered the address to the grad
uating class of Annapolis High
School at the Commencement
ceremonies held in the Circle
Playhouse. Ihe theatre was fill
ed to the doors hy relatives and
friends of the graduates and un
dergraduates, and patrons of the
school. A well arranged program
was effectively carried out.
Applause For ITlnrlpul
The program of exercises opened
with a prayer by (he Rev. Father Wil
liam Thiime) or St. Mary's Church
who also pronounced the Benediction.
The principal. Miss Louise W. Lin
thicum, drew a round of applause
from the audience by starting her
brief address with the announcement
that all the members cf the graduat
ing class were “good sports.” This
was in allusion to the fact that, al
though the 18 male members of the
class were not receiving their diplo
mas, commencement was being held
as usual, In spite of the 40 girl grad
uates having, out of sympathy with
their classmates, at first requested
that formal exercises be dispensed
with, and their diplomas be handed
them on the closing day of school.
How Trouble Came About
The situation came about through
the hazing affair at the school several
weeks ago, as a result of which the
County Board of Education, byway of
punishing the boy offenders, decreed
that they should not receive their di
plomas with the rest of the class,
but would be awarded them at the
office of the County Board 10 days
later. Strong pressure was brought
to hear upon the governing board of
