GIYE5 BOYS DINNER Walter E. Malley Tenders Feast to Yale Hall Youngsters on Campus. ALEC BERNSTEIN ORATOR Speaks at Dwight Hall, Amid Thun ders of Applause, to Enthusi astic Banqueters. Old Yale, three thousand strong, with bag and baggage, in hack and carriage, rolled forth from the campus down Meadow street to the station and away to every corner of the country yester day to .spend the holidays with the old fplks at home. But it was not many hours after the last rumble of the pre historic public conveyances that car ried the students died away that a new Yale, a younger Yule, appeared on the campus. There were full two hundred of these new adherents of the blue and as they floated into the campus at every possibi i entrance to it, shortly after 7 o'clock, Campus . Officer Wiser pricked up his ears and bethought him that perhaps he might make some, ar rests of suspicious characters and share in the late-gotten tame of his brother officer, Jim Donnelly. The new Yale was of a younger gen eration, but that fact but followed out the general tendency, marked of late, with the entering classes. They came from the Yale hall on Franklin street, and they gathered in front of (Dwight hall, within which sacred precincts was to be served to them the greatest of feasts and to be addressed to them the most eloquent of addresses. And "who was to be the speaker of the occasion None other than the silver-tongued Alec Bernstein, a member of the club. Alec, by the way, is only "knee high to a grasshopper," but that mattered littler, for there is an old saying that good things come In small packages, and the "Yaleses" from Franklin street understood the full purport of that remark from past , experiences with this, same Alec. ', At Yale 'Kail the boys are divided tip into clubs and each club has its representatives in a senate which runs things generally. Rumor has it that LAlec is the leader of the greatest lobby that this august body has. ever had. The festiviltles l'3st evening opened with an entertainment 'given In vVtie big room upstairs In Dwight Hall, but that was not to hold a candle to what was to come. It was given by some grown-ups and everybody knows that the boys themselves can far surpass all comers. Incidentally the boys' part of the program came after a sumptu ous feed, when everybody '" felt much happier, even though the rules of Dwight Hall and the adolescence of the diners nrevented n.rvthr& jteti-nnor. 1 ef to drink than aqua, highballs and . alcht-two-oh cocktails.. The socalled banauet was hot serve. i by Maresi r Martin, but it was all to : the mustard, for listen, here it is: Cel ery, soup, turkey, - potatjoys, peas, ham 'sandwiches, bread and buttter, apples and mince pies, chocolate ice , cream (as many plates as each could smuggle j away), candies, fruits, cocoa and tooth- picks.- It, ' was given by Walter E. Mr.. Malley was roundly cheered not once but many times for his generoa ! ity- , ,. .... ' . 1 The snperh of the evpninc with th fjaoeent on the "the"). was as has been I said, by Alec Bernstein. He was not by - any means the only nor the first of 1 1 the speakers but' his, three t feet six 1 inches of eloquence so far swept all be- Uore hin in the forensic field that the fothers canwell be passfed Over in si- i'lence. When he was introduced by the I toastmaster Mr. Bernstein walked with dignity to the' front of the banquet hall (for, in his modesty, he had refused to sit at the head table, but had instead- S expressed his wish to "sit with the I boys," he loved them so) and, spoke in finis wise: .,- : ,vi t 1 "Fellers, (cries of 'hurray for Alec') I here's just one or two . thoughts I ants ter leave wld you to-night, j Gesture dexter). You've all heard tell jhat 'big oaks from little acorns grow.' I 3ttt I can tell you, and my father told '!t to me, that it is also true that big jches from little toe-corns grow. (Hil- Help down i 1 1 1 a not griaare on a cold morning with CORN SYRUP The health-giving essence of golden corn. Tastes good In (I K0AL" il THE i GREAT ; HEAT R0D110ER. t : I1.', i ariotis laughter and applause). I want ter tell you fellers (gestures sinister) a story about Mr. and Mr;-:. Little. (Cries of 'Go on, Alec, tell your story. You're all r'ght.') Mr. and Mrs. Little had a great many children. There ..were seventeen of them in all. Oh, by the way, I meant to say before that, just as big oaks from little acorns grow, so we have a little club at Yale Hall now, but we are going to b? 'some punkins' some day. (Thunders of applause.) And Mr. Little was very poor. He didn't know what he would do to get food and clothes for all the children. But the kids they wer smart ones and they all went out and did something. Some sold papars and sonic did other things. Mr. Little said then 'Every little Little helps.' Just so (ambo-gesture) we are small, but we each can do a little at the hall and make that little help. Thank you, fellers." Mr. Bernstein went to his seat amid such applause as can only be equalled at a presidential nomination conven tion. But he took It with the rare equanimity of a truly great man. The other speakers were Joe Delia Valle, Dick Cosgrove, Jim McNamara, A'bert Bertram and John Klernan. There was a, distribution of prizes to' the winners in a recent track meet held on Thanksgiving day by the boys of the Yale hall. The lucky ones were Nate Hamerman, senior point winner; Morris Rabtnowitz, junior point win ner, and Eddie DuPaul, second junior point winner., But nothing could be said more ex pressive of the spirit and purport of the whole occasion than that made in unison by them all at the conclusion of the evening. That was as follows, sung out fortissimo: "Keyro, cairo, bunco, shiro; keyro, cairo, kimbo; shrim, ptran, pumididdle; .hy, belly, regdom; regdom, belly and' a kl-me-oh; ra, who, race, Yale Hall Boys' club is the place." The last seven words were quite intelligible. WANT .NEWSBOYS LICENSED. Merchants Complain of Nuisance Under Present System Complaints have come into the police department about newsboys who make . themselves" a nuisance about the center of the city and a movement has been started by mer chants about the city to have the boys licensed, as in Boston, so that the offi cers, may curb them to some degree. The fault is not with the real news boys but with youngsters who get one paper, and not caring whether or not they sell it, play around the center of the city with that as an .excuse for their presence. MATTER OF CURTAILMENT. Cotton Mills May Shut Down Two . Days a Week. Boston, Dec. IS. The advisability at a curtailment of production by the cot ton mills during aJnuary and Febru ary was discussed to-day at a meeting of the Arkwrlght club, and organiza tion of the officials of the leading cot ton mills during January and Febru sentlment of the speakers appeared to be that the mills should shut-down two days a week during aJnuary and Feb ruary, "providing the movement is ac cepted -generally. A committee was ap pointed to canvas the entire situation, and ascertain if the plan proposed is acceptable to all leading mill interests: In Fall River there Is some doubt as to how the movement will be receiv ed. Many of the print cloth mills have contracts which will keep them busy during the first part of next year, but some of the manufacturers favor cur tailment and have already stopped sec tions of their machinery. A limited curtailment has been in eTfect in New Bedford, Mass.,: and Manville, R. I., for some time. The cotton mills in Ware, and in Greenville and New Ipswich, 11. H., are running on short time, but in the large centers little of the machin ery has been Btopped. , , ' , Maplevllle, R. I., Dee. 18.

CORN PRODUCTS ,, MANUFACTURING CO. W.F. GILBERT & CO. 65 CHURCH, OPP. P. 0. INTEREST GROWING: New District Formed in East Haven for Big Evangelical Campaign. NEAR TOWNS INTERESTED Four Afternoon Meetings on January 5 Will Mark the Opening of the Chapman Movement. The enthusiasm and confidence felt by those church leaders who are at the head of the evangelistic campaign, to begin in this city on January 5, is spreading rapidly to the congregations of the various churches interested in the movement. The preliminary work of the various committees is nearly concluded and the reports received by the executive committee are very en couraging. ' The Rev. W. L. Phillips, D.D., chair man of the general committee having in charge the campaign, last night an nounced that at .the request of four churches, a new district had been formed, making nine districts in which the simultaneous meetings will be held. The new district, known as the Ninth, will be In East Haven. This district Is made up of the East Haven Congregational, St. Andrew's M. E of East Haven, Short Beach chapel and Morris Cove chapel. The leaders of these churches appointed a repre sentative to place tho matter before the campaign committee and it was decided by the executive committee to form another district as above out lined. The fact that churches outside New Haven proper are desirous of being connected with the campaign is most encouraging to the committee and there Is now a possibility that one or two other nearby towns will ask to participate in the movement. The c'ampaign will open Sunday, Jan ucary fth with four afternoon meet ings. There will be a meeting in Poll's theater for men only, and in three different churches there will be meetings for women, for children un der twelve i and for children over twelve. The regular evening meetings will begin that, evening at 7:30 in the churches assigned for the services. The committee also announces that the necessary funds for the campaign now seem to be forthcoming and it is hoped that before the campaign opens the financial problem will be only a minor consideration. STORM MAKES LAND. Eighty Feet Added to Steeplechase ( Island at Bridgeport. ; Bridgeport. Dec. 18. About eighty feet of additional lat)d was added to fSteeplechase Island on the west and south sides In consequence of Satur day's storm, which deposited hundreds of tons of sand outside of the board walk. The extension of the breakwa ter by the government during the summer had a great deal to do with making the new land. V ";.'. "I have been watching the effect -Of the extended breakwater upon the Island," said Captain Boynton yester day. "It has changed conditions won derfully, and -I have observed a. con tinual Increase of the land's acreage. I understand that the island has been making new ground for years, but it has never increased at such strides be fore. The beach Is now even with the board walk on the west side. "At the east of the Island on the property of the town of Stratford there were large deposits so that Steeplechase island is now an Island in reality. I look for continued develop ment of the Island, and the extended breakwater is certainly doing great work, and In a few years it will in crease the acreage to a surprising ex tent. The only damage done on the island by the storm was the destruc tion of one of the towers of a small building on the trail." FOVB MONTHS MORE. Bids for City Hall Vault Fittings to Allow That Time. j The plans for the interior fittings of the new vaults in City hall on which bids will be called for are nearly ready for use now and Controller Rowe said yesterday that he expected the call for bids would be issued by the end of this week. Tho call lawaits simply the coming of these plans and the award ing of the contract will follow in i short time, Three months Is the least time under which a firm will accept the contract for the fittings and in all probability four months will be al lowed. This will include the setting uj. of the fittings, making the vaults om- plete and ready for use about the first of May. TO HEAR MeKAY CASE. Council of Congregational Church Delegates Called for To-day.

BEES CUKE RHEUMATISM. I Madison Man Accidentally Finds Cure In Stings. Hartford, Dec. IS. Bee stings as a cure for rheumatism was one of the interesting phases of the discussion of the honey bee at this morning's ses sion of the Connecticut Board of Ag riculture. Dr. Edward F. Bigelow of Stamford made the chief address on the general subject, the medicinal ef fect of inoculation by the honey pro ducers arising during the general dis cussion. T. S. Scranton of Madison asked Dr. Eigolow if he knew of any experiences of cures being brqught about by con tact with the bees and replied in the negative. The questioner then related his experience. He said that he had been a great sufferer from rheumatic ailfents and that while he was an in valid he undertook to right a hive that had been upset by one of the work men, witli the result that he was badly stung. In a few days his rheumatism began to disappear. Later, when it came on again, he put a plaster of bees on his body and was cured again. Now whenever he feels a twinge of rheuma tism he uses bees entirely and he has extended the treatment to his ailing friends with the same success as at tended the , applications In his own case. Mr. Scranton appeared surprised that bee keepers had not. discovered this remedy before. 'A resolution presented this morning requesting that the board of agricul ture give (Sore publicity to the notices of its-meetings was ruled out of order by the chaiman, and this disposition caused considerable criticism. At the afternoon session market gar dening and swine were the subjects selected for discussion. ' The meeting will end this evening. MYSTIC SCHOONER DAMAGED. . Collision Near Vineyard Haven at Night.

Six turkeys slain that morning re volved slowly on a kind of spit in a small roon. on the ground floor of a great poultry farm, and as they re volved they were miraculously plucked. Invisible hands stripped off their plumage. The air was gray with fall ing feathers. "Wind plucked turkeys it Is an ex periment," said the foreman. "These birds are being plucked by cross our rents of electrically driven air. But the feathers come off very slowly. The experiment is not a commercial suc cess. "For many years we have tried to invent a poultry plucking machine. We have not succeeded well. Air plucking seems to be the idea that offers most promise, hut It still wants a lot of working out. Yet eventually I have no doubt these, turkeys that now take a half hour and cost 10 cents apiece to pluck by hand will be air plucked in a few seconds and at no more eost than 10 cents a thousand."
