At a meeting of the executive com

point a committee consisting of Presi- j
demt Farquhar. Secretary Kehr, I)r. j
Henry S. Drinker and I. C. Williams to i
confer with the various State Depart-!
ments with the view of supplementing i
their efforts in securing for the State
of Pennsylvania" the necessary legisla
tion to better conserve the lives of its
peo'ple and its natural resources, which
are rapidly diminishing. The necessity
for legislation preventing the pollution
of the streams and forest fires were
included in tiie many phases of the sub
ject discussed. Among the features sug
gested in the matter of preventing
stream pollution, it was suggested that
many of the chemicals which are dump
ed into the streams from the many in
dustries located along the streams of
the State might lvo converted into
economic products of eons'#'era : ble com
mercial value, ft was also stated that
sufficient funds have not been provided
for the State Department of Forestry
with which to properly patrol, and thus
prevent the enormous waste incident to
the great tires during the dry season.
A suggestion was made that millions
of dollars could be saved for the State

tablish adequate patrol. Tele hone serv

"The Yellow Ticket'*
.Michael Morton, the author of "The [
Yellow Ticket,' which comes to the
Majestic this afternoon and evening,
is a playwright of international fame.
Among his best known works may lie
mentioned "Resurrection." in which
Blanche Walsh starred with great suc
cess for several seasons, and which
was written in collaboration with
Henri Bataille: "My Wife" and "The
Runaway"—both of these adaptations
front the French which were made by
Mr. Morton for Miss ftillie Burke: "A
Rich Man's Son." in which W. H.
Crane, the comedian, starred success
fully. and "Colonel Newcomb," a
dramatization made from Thnckery's
novel. "The Newcombs." and which
was written originally for Sol Smith
Russell, but in which that comedian
was not seen, owing to the fact that
his health broke down at that time.
The manuscript was found in the pos-
M>ssion of Sol Smith Russell at the
time of his death and was afterward
used by Williard. the English actor,
for a season., it has never been seen
in New York and it is possible that
Sir Herbert Beerhohm Tree will re
vise the play shortly for production in
America, appearing himself in the role
of "Colonel Newcomb." Michael Mor
ton is a brother of Mrs. Martha Mor
ton Cronheim, who is well known as
an American playwright. adv. ***
"The Dummy." with the famous
New York cast that has been playing
at the Hudson Theatre since last sea
son. is coining to the Majestic Tues
day evening fresh from its record run
on the Great White Way.
The instantaneous success of "The
Dummy" on Its opening night, the en
thusiastic welcome given it by every
New York critic, and the wholesale
cordiality with which the play-goers
i have flocked to it, month after month.
| all mean that this little play is the
kind of entertainment that can be
| depended on to delight everybody. It
j is a popular laugh-maker, whose fun
cannot be resisted, a detective comedy
| in which there is "something doing"
every minute, and a "heart interest"
| play that gets right down to the hu
! man side of life and is lovable all
| through. When Harvey O'Higgins
i i:n«l Harriet Ford, authors of "The

younger classes this year fell the right
to play hockey on Thanksgiving Day
for the championship cup. In the un
derclass games the Freshmen won from
the Sophomores by a score of 9-5. It
is a coincidence that each of these
classes in the contest with its sister
class was able to make the number of
goals it made in the underclass game.
The Freshman team scifred 9 against
the Juniors' 2 and the Sophomores won
from the Seniors 5-3. The Thanksgiv
ing game was, therefore, a particularly
earnest one: each team was determined
to be the successful holder of the cup.
The class of 1917 won from the class
of 191S by a score of 9-3.
