'There still remains a chance for somo
Phlladelphlan to become superintendent of
Independence Hall at a nalary of JS0O a

by tho Civil Service Commission today.
But the man to get tho Job must bo of

He must know all tho historical lore of

1913. Several weeks ago 76 applicants took
civil service examinations for the place.
Four applicants passed tho examination.
One of tho successful candidates refused
to havo his name considered, another was
not available for appointment, and Direc

Ab a. result, there was another examina

about 300 men nnd women were unable to

prepare the soup, refused to let the des
titute applicants go away hungry, and
bread was distributed.
The soup headquarters was forced to
shut down two weeks ago because credi
tors were unablo to get some 5E0O which
was owed them. Mrs. Ketchum received
contributions of about J300 recently, and
Immediately decided to give away the
soup again. Several hundred families

Cheer after cheer and loud applauso

MR. HIBBGN SILENT.
When questioned again on his attitude
toward the evangelist, rresldent Hlb
"I have nothing further to say about
the controversy over Mr. Sunday speak
ing I na unlvorslty building. I have al
ready heard him preach and will not bo
present nt either of his sermons toaay.
In his sermon Sunday did not refer to
Doctor Hlbben's opposition.
In opening his address, "Billy" apolo
gized for being husky by remarking on
the severity of tho work at tho tabernacle
"I'm a llttlo husky today, boys," he ex
plained, "but we were doing things down
In old Thllly' yesterday that are going
to make the devil sit up and tako no
tice." A murmur of approval swept over tho
audience. Tho evangelist smiled, paused
a moment and then continued:
"Now that's what every one of you
fellows hopes to do somo day. Mako
the devil sit up and tako notice, and
that's what I am going to try to help you
do today. I'm Just going to give you
my Ideas on a few things a preacher
should do and a few things ho shouldn't
"Billy" was accompanied by "Rodey"
and "Jack" Cardiff and Bentloy D. Acker,
his private secretary and pianist. Tho
party left their Spring Garden street
home shortly after 8 o'clock this morning,
and despite reports that the roads be
tween Philadelphia and I'rlnceton were
not In good condition, they made the trip
In tho limousine placed at their disposal
by John Wannmaker. They reached
Princeton shortly after 10 o'clock and pro
ceeded directly to the home of Dr. Charles
It. Erdman. a personal friend of the
evangelist and the man who was Instru
mental Jn obtaining his consent to ad
dress the Btudents.
At Doctor Erdman'a home "Billy" was
Introduced to the committee In charge
of the meeting. They were all ottlclals
of the Theological Seminary and included
President J. Ross Stevenson, Registrar
Puul Martin and tho Rev. Sylvester W.
Beec'i, of the First Presbyterian Church.
HUNDREDS GREET "BILLY."
Although many of the collego men were
unable to hear the evangelist this
afternoon, and are greatly disappointed
because President HlbDen would not per
mit the committee to use the big Alex
ander Hall or the gymnasium of the uni
versity, there seems to be hardly a
student 'who s not strong for Sunday
and ready to cheer him.
So anxious were tho students to hear
Sunday that Alfred Noycs, the poet, who
speaks at 12:30 o'clock this afternoon,
will have but a handful of atudenta
present for hjs lecture. Many of the col
lege men openly declared their Intention
to "cut" the Noyes lecture so as to bo
able to har Sunday.
In preparation for Sunday's arrival
from Philadelphia hundreds of students
have been practicing songs and special
cheers for him during the last few days.
The coming of no man to Princeton ha
stirred the student body as much since
President Wilson returned for his first
visit following his Inauguration as the
chief executive ot the nation.
SONG FOR EVANGELIST.
While groups of students cheered
"Billy" and his party through the snowy
streets upon his arrival here, one crowd
caused much amusement by singing a
parody on "John Brown'a Body," dedi
cated to the evangelist The chorus of
the parody folbws:
Jolly, Jollr, Billy Sundtr,
Wvcom to our town tola Monday;
Six taur ioe wjth n&uff; Hlbben. "

reached tho pulpit. Tho seminarians
started to sing tho tabernacle hymns as
Boon as "Rodey" appeared.
When "Billy" Jumped up tho steps of
the pulpit, tho audience applnuded loud
ly. Tho Rev. Dr. J. Boss Steven3on, of
tho seminary, assured hlin that the Insti
tution wns In hardy accord with his work,
nnd the seminary students nssoclatlon
presented him with a handsome Bible.
Doctor Stevenson said: "Wo are In
the heartiest accord with any movement
that will give power to the work of
preaching God's word. Wo rejoice when
we see tho remarkable things Mr. Sunday
has done. We nro delighted to wclcomo
him as n preacher of the old Gospel aa
found In the Bible. Wo nssuro him that
wo nro in entire accord with him and
Sunday said tho men should search for
words. "I do," he continued, "and not
all of thoso I've found were in Webster.
But thnt doesn't mako any difference If
It gives the devil n run for his monoy.
The prencher should make an effort to
put something Into his sermons that will
make people want to come to hear him
Rem-h to tho common people. If you try
to preach to a couple of giraffes tho other
folk will starve to death.
"Don't use a slecgo hammer to pound
brass tucks. It .shows you don't havo
good sense. Remember you're not preach
ing t win compliments or banquets, but
to win souls. The reason a lot of preach
ers never get nnywhere Is because they
are afraid to preach tho truth. If any
body doesn't like what you preach when
you preach the truth, let them tie up
tlniir pursestrlngs nnd beat It.
Uoo many preachers are going around
on stilts nnd couldn't tench the people
with a 10-fcot pole. There's better ways
of hitting people than by dropping bricks
down on them from a skyscraper."
36,000 HEAR SERMONS.
"Billy" scored nnother notable victory
yesterday when he moved two "men
only" audiences, numbering more than
36,000 persons, to plcdgo their support for
the adoption of a local option law In
The opening attack of tho fight as out
lined ny the evangellnt will consist In
bombarding the Philadelphia Senators
and Representatives at Harrlsburg with
letters and telegrams demanding their
support of the local option bill. To sup
plement this work, "finding lists" wore
distributed by the ushers to nil those who
nttenaea the meetings In order that there
might be no doubt among tho workers
as to whom the letters should bo sent.
In addition to this postcards wera given
to thoso who desired to make their apeal
to the lawmakers on the regulation blank.
DOCTOR DOWRY HELPS.
The evangelist was aided In his attack
on tho "liquor gang" yesterday by the
Rev. Dr. George C. Dowey, organizer of
the "Billy" Sunday Bible classes, who
made a Bhort address from the platform
of the tabernacle at both the afternoon
and evening services.
"Billy" could not restrain his enthu
siasm. At both the afternoon and even
ing services ho Interrupted Doctor Dowey
before he had completed his remarks by
supplementing them with such vehement
exhortations that his audiences fairly
gasped with astonishment,
"Men of Philadelphia, "Billy" shouted,
"you ought to be tired of having the rum
gang run things In this State. You want
local option. Then for heaven's sake get
out on the firing line with your aovernor.
Go out and win, It's up to you."
These remarks were In keeping with
the subject of Sunday's sermon on "Man
or Mutt; Dishwater or Gasoline, Heads
or Tails." The text was from First
Kings, II, 2; "Be thou strong and show
thyself a man." Never had Sunday made
such an appeal to the manhood of the
city, and when he showed how the men
could put themselves to a practical test
at this time by taking their stand agalnBt
"that booze crowd," there were few who
did not Join In cheers and signify that
they were "with him to the finish," as
one man termned it.
"Billy" reverted yesterday to his most
forceful method of preaching. He used
much slang, pounded the pulpit, and
The needle and thread are about to bo
cast nsldo by the girl pupils of the third
grade in nil of Philadelphia's public
schools. Embro'uory Is auout to give way

This Is only one of the Important
changes Involved In a general reorganiza
tion of tho Department of Vocational
Guidance which has been approved by
tho Committee on Elementary Schools. In
addition to n revision of the curriculum,
the reorganization will effect a considera
ble navlng of money. According to Dr.
Wllllnm C. Jacobs, Superintendent of
Schools, the annual coat of conducting
this department will be reduced by
It was Doctor Jacobs who submitted
to the board the plan upon which the de
partment will bo reorganized. The
changes, however, were recommended to
Doctor Jacobs by Mr. Frazce, who was
nominated as head of the department a
year ago by Governor Brumbaugh, then
Superintendent of Schools.
The chief saving will bo made possiblo
by a readjustment ,of the teaching force,
eo that tho Instructors will teach sub
jects which are now not Included in their
list of duties. No teachers will bo dis
charged under the new plan.
An assistant director of vocational guid
ance will be appointed, who will be In
charge of training teachers for their now
work. The new office has been created,
but the salary has not yet been deter
mined. Doctor Jacobs has asked tho
board to fill tho vacant position In April
or aa soon thereafter na Is possiblo.
Manual training for boys In the first
three grades will bo under tho supervision
of- tho director of drawing, since tho
course In those grades consists largely
of that subject. Although the snlarles
of vocational teachers are comparatively
high, tho number available Is Insufficient,
and the chief examiner for tho Board of
Education will soon find It necessary to
hold nnother examination to fill a depleted

plenty of them, who would becomo good

LIKE YOUNG DOCTOR.
"There arc cases, of course, where a
preacher has for years been giving a
doso of everything without nppearlng to
mnke things better or worse. Llko a
young doctor I onco henrd of who was
called to prescribe for a babv. After
the child was dead ho turned to tho
parents nnd said. 'I cannot Imagine
whnt made that baby die I gavo It all
the medicine I liad ever heard of.'

nnd on aim An your preaching. Preach

the nlr. Try nnd makr the bell ring so
that It will land under the fifth rib. The
trouble with some scmons Is that they
nre never Intended U hit anything, nnd
they never do.
"Flrat thing necessary Is n text a sub
ject. Some decide on tho subject firet,
then hunt up the text, like the young
'ellow who buys a necktie and then goes
out to buy Bocks to match his tie. Some
chooso a text and then find tho subject
In that text.
"Much depends upon tho man ns to
whnt ho hopes to accomplish and which
method Is best, Just ns It depends whether
tho farmer chops wood, digs pote'oea or
whether he takes nn ax or a hoc.
"Somo can preach for an hour without
text or subject and keep It up for years.
Somo take tho text, nnd from It thoy
preach on anything under tho sun.
"I onco heard of a locnl prencher of this
kind. Ills hobby was Infant baptism.
Tho pastor of the church said to him that
ho (the pastor) would bo away tho follow
ing Sunday, and asked this local preacher
to tako hla place. 'But.' Bald the preacher,
I'll pick out your text.' Tho local
preacher replied, 'All right, any old text
will do.' They were all the snmo to
him. Tho pastor said, 'I want you to
preach on tho text 'All Flesh Is Grass.'
Ho thought that would keep tho young
fellow away from tho water. Sunday
morning camo nnd ho opened tho Bible,
looked over his audience, ajil a child
like, bland smllo came over him as ho
said, 'Beloved, you will notice this text
divides Itself Into two heads Flesh and
Grass, which reminds ub of two kinds of
baptism, adult and Infant.'
"With many preachers the choosing of
a text is the hardest part of making tho
sermon. Onco they get a good subject
tho sermon almost makes Itself, Just the
samo as tho trimming becomes a small
matter to a woman after sho decides upon
