by tho pollco of how ho killed his wlfo be

her body, forged n death certificate nnd

Although Schrocffel, nccordlng to his own

so loud during nn argument they wero

SchroefTcl went to bed nnd slept soundly,

which Is attnehed hereto), whereby such
ii stadium will ultimately become tho
property of said University, nmplo pro
vision having boon mado therein for per
manently tnklng enro of such events ns
tho Army and Navy game, world's cham
pionship series, largo municipal events
nnd pngennts, etc., ns well ns tho Uni
versity's big athletic contests, under
standing further thnt tho Chamber ot
Commerce appreciates tho value to tho
city as well as to tho University of such
a stadium nnd approves of tho project,
wo bellovo that body should tako further
steps as may bo necessary to carry out
tho plans to a successful conclusion."
It was stntcd today that these trustees
of tho University havo enthusiastically In
dorsed tho plan: Dr. J. William White,
chairman of tho University ot Pennsylva
nia Committee on tho Army and Navy
Football Game; Marshall Morgan, of tho
United Gas and Improvement Company,
and former Attorney General John C. Bell.
In a report submitted today to tho
Chamber ot Coflmcrce, Mr. Nltzscho out
lines his plnn for tho proposed stadium
Tho report follows:
"Philadelphia needs a great stadium If
sho expects to attract big athletic and
out-of-door events and to keep paco with
other largo American cities. Tale, Har
vard and Princeton havo stadiums seating"
from 45.000 to 70.000, nnd oven somo
of tho Western high schools, bucIi as Ta
coma and San Diego, havo stadiums seat
ing from 20,000 to 30,000.
"Tho Tolo Grounds In New York are
said to seat 42,000, and there is a rumor
that they aro about to build a stadium in
New York seating more thnn doublo that
"Franklin Field's seating capacity Is
19,214, although, with tho tomporury scats,
32,000 havo been crowded Into It. Unless
Philadelphia makes nn offort at once, sho
cannot hopo to bid for such big open-
air events is tho Olympics, national pa
geants nnd tho Army nnd Nnvy game. Tho
game has been becoming moro and more, a
national event.
"The President and hundreds of the
most eminent men In public life attend
annually; with tho proposed Increase in
the army nnd nnvy tho gamo will soon
attract 100,000. Philadelphia cannot nfford
to lose these games. Being halt way be
tween West Point and Annapolis Is a good
reason why the gn ;o should be played In
Philadelphia every year.
"The great demand for tickets for the
Inst Penn-Cornell game, tho supply of
which was exhausted several days before
the game, indicated thnt there Is no rea
son why a Pennsylvania gamo with any
of tho 'big four would not attract crowds
of 00,000 or more, as the football game did
at Yale last fall.
"The samo Is true of the world series
baseball games; In tho last six years
only once Philadelphia was not repre
sented In the world series. Almost a mil
lion people attended these games and paid
almost J2.00O.O0O for admission; had they
had a stadium such as Is here proposed
theso figures might have been trebled.
Such a stadium would also attract other
big events, such as the Olymplo games.
national pageants, etc. even the Uni
versity relay carnival would soon fill It."
, Mr. Nltzsche deals with the matter
of the stadium's site as follows:
"The Bite suggested for tho proposed
stadium Is the natural ravine and basin
in Woodlands Cemetery, adjoining the
University Botaplo Gardens, which at
present Is separated from It by a blind
nlley used as a city supply yard, al
though it Is on the map as 'University
avenue.' The accompanying plan gives a
picture of how this piece of land, now
useless and unoccupied, could be used
to advantage. It would answer all pur
poses of the kind for generations to come.
"As will be seen, the plan provides for
a large educational building, a parking
place for automobiles an open theatro
constructed near the site of the one pre
pared for Greek plays last June, only
having seats on the opposite slope, as
Indicated on the plan; and lastly, a huge

stadium nt the southern end of the ravine,
arranged so that It coutd ho utilized tho
year around by converting tho outside
upper parts Into dormitories. Tho ap
proaches to these grounds could be trans
formed Into shady nooks nnd walks so
that tho present Botnnlcal Gardens would
extend over tho cntlro tract.
"As will bo seen by tho sketch, tho
largest portion of tho stadium would bo
on tho Woodlands grounds tho other on
a triangular ploco of unused city property.
This alto Is In many respects Ideal and
would reclaim land which might other
wise remain useless.
"Any objections which might bo brought
by tho lot owners of tho cemetery, bc
eauso of Its proximity, would ho met by
putting a concroto wall on that Bide ot
tho stadium, which wall would soon bo
overgrown with Ivy and lined with shrub
bery nnd tall poplars. Tho facilities for
emptying the stadium would bo unsur
passed nnd tho open spneo on all sides
would obvlato congestion.
"Tho stadium would bo nbout 40 feet
below tho surface nnd nbout BO feet nbove,
tho audlonco entering the stndlum from
tho ground level through numerous en
trances, nnd going either up or down,
nccordlng to tho location of their Bents.
A wide walk or drive would encircle tho
whole field, tho drlvo being covered by
tho under part of tho section of tho
stadium extending nbovo tho ground nnd
tho outer walls, consisting ot n dignified
ncrlea nf nrche3 Tho field would seat
from 80,000 to 100,000, nnd would havo
ample space for a qunrtor-inilo track,
football field, baseball diamond, etc.
"Tho proposed clovntcd lino from 30lh
and Market will skirt tho southern boun
dary of the stadium, also tho Pennsylva
nia Railroad, nnd thcro la nmplo room
for a union station. Tho northern end
Is nccesslblo by tho surfaco and subway
cars along Woodland avenue. Walnut,
Chestnut and Market streets. Ono can
reach tho City Hall, tho heart of Phila
delphia, on many ot these lines In less
than 15 minutes; and theso enrs connect
with others going to tho remotest parts
ot Philadelphia. Automobiles could reach
tho stadium on good ronds from nil parts
of tho city, nnd tho proposed Park Bou
levard from Falrmount Park to Bartrnm
Park would run close by.
"This slto Is moro desirable, ns the
ravlno does not contain n grave. It would
Improve what Is now a moro or less un
sightly part of tho cemetery, some of It
being swampy and other parts being used
ns dumps. To moot any real objection of
lot holders, tho money derived from tho
salo of tho ravlno might bo devoted to a
fund, the Incomo of which might bo used
for beautifying tho cemetery.
"Tho outer walls of the stadium could
bo so constructed as to make a permanent
source of Income. As, previously stated,
from 40 to CO feet of this stndlum would
extend nbovo tho ground. The under sldo
of this might bo benutlllcd by building nn
nrchwny with two stories of dormitories
nbovo It. Tho brlclc work nnd architecture
might bo mado to correspond with our
present dormitory system.
"This would nlso provide for nn outer
drlvo and an Indoor track and comfort-
ablo dormitory nccommodatlons for al
most 1000 students.
This feature In It-
. l I
self might bo mado to pay an Incomo of
from J30.000 to JjO.OOO a year, which
would be a fair pcrccntngo on the nmount
Invested, although tho profits of two or
three largo cvcntB might in themselves
be a handsome dividend on tho invest
S. R. Clark, secretary of tho Municipal
Affairs nnd Convention Committee of, the
Chamber of Commerce, said:
"It Is now up to tho trustees of the
University of Pennsylvania to npprove
these plans, nnd when thnt Is dono tho
Chamber of Commerco wilt try to make
the Btadlum a reality. Wo should Btrlko
now while tho Iron Is hot. Tho public
Is aroused by tho loss of the Army and
Navy 'game, and they will welcome n
movement of this kind. A stadium such
as is outlined by Mr. Nltzsche would place
Philadelphia permanently on the map and
would greatly uplift tho civic life of the
"An awakened Interest In outdoor sports
means a better and cleaner citizenship.
If we glvo Phlladelphlans a place to wit
ness some ot tho world's greatest athletic
events, we will cut down the attendance
at tho saloons and other objectionable
resorts. This Is a movement which should
receive tho enthusiastic Indorsement of
every public-spirited man and woman."
