TWO CENTS HARVARD BEATS YALE NINE, 4 TO I ____________________ / Babe Felton at His Best on Crimson Class Day Big New Haven Crowd Sees Its Team Outplayed—Frothingham Hurt By MELVILLE E. WEBB JR NEW HAVEN, Conn, June 22-Thorne Murphy, son of the late Mike Murphy, dean of college track team trainers, made a base hit in the opening inning of today’s Crimson Class Day baseball battle between Harvard and Yale. The Yale outfielder advanced to second base on a sacrifice, stole third and scored on an infield play. But Murphy's run was the only one Yale scored against "Babe'’ Felton, who pitched Harvard to a 4-to-l victory, and Ii is opening single stood as 25 percent of the safe hitting that Bill Lauder's ball nine could make against the offerings of the Cambridge boxman. Yale’s first-inning run was matched by Harvard in the second inning, .when, following a single by Lincoln, Howard Belleek, Yale’s diminutive right hand pitcher, passed two batters and then hit “Jocko” Conlon to force in a run. Then the teams fought without further scoring until the sixth inning when three Continued on the Fifth Pnge.

Accounts Opened by Mail Sure Relief New Figure in Elwell Case At Bool Harden filii yon Belltail Still Deep Says Dist Ally Swan Special Dispatch to the Globe > NEW YORK, June 22—After 12 days of investigation, District Attorney Edward Swann told newspapermen this evening that the mystery surrounding the murder of Joseph B. Elwell is us impenetrable as It was 20 minutes after he .was found by his housekeeper about 8:30 o’clock on the morning of June ll in the reception room of his home, No. 214 West 70th st, dying from a bullet wound in his head. “We have examined everyone we can find who might have known anything about the crime, said the District Attorney, “and there is as much mystery today with respect to tile 'ndividual who killed Elwell as there was a week ago Friday.” Reporters rehearsed Lie part played in the case by the woman who is called “Miss Wilson.” Asked if she were not the ipivot in the case, Mr Swann said: No Evidence Against Woman “I am not willing to render more miserable a wretched lot of young women who stoop to folly. I certainly will not drag their frailties into the open. There is no legal evidence of any of them being connected with this crime. "With respect to ‘Miss Wilson* we shall seek no further her frailties to disclose. We do not regard her as the pivot in this case. She may have unconsciously the innocent cause of the criminal’s act. We do not know it.” Mr Swann was asked lf ho iliad been hampered, by the fact that the police had not cooperate^ with his office. “No, I should not say that,” he re plied. “The police have expressed their willingness to cooperate with us in every way. They have done good work in this case. The murderer has not been caught because he has been very discreet. He has told no one that he committed the crime. If he had, we might, perhaps, have heard of it by this time.” WOMEN TO HELP RUN CAMPAIGN Republicans Appoint Seven On National Committee From All Factions—Suffragists “Disappointed” by Harding 6 BELLAN* Hot water Sure Relief BE ll-ans lh# FOR RN DIO CST IQM REVIEW CLASSES July 12 to September IO for students who failed in their College Board Examinations HUNTINGTON SCHOOL 320 HUNTINGTON AVENUE __Boston    17,    Mass.

Asks “Lady in Black” to Come The district attorney said today he had telegraphed to Minneapolis requesting Miss Elly Hope Anderson, a friend of Victor von Schlegell, to return to New York to answer certain questions the district attorney is anxious to ask. “We have not the right to subpena her,” said Mr Swann, “and we have merely asked her if she 'will come back. Wre have no charge to ’make against Miss Anderson. There are certain things she can throw light on.” Asked if Miss Anderson Is the “Lady in Black” who was with von Schlegell the evening of June IO on the roof of the Ritz Carlton when von Schlegell encountered Elwell. Mr and Mrs Lewi-sohn, Viola Kraus and Octavio Figueroa, Mr Swann said: "Yes, I should say that Miss Anderson is the ‘Lady. in Black’ who has been referred to." She was quoted in an interview In Minneapolis as saying that on the evening of June IO von Schlegell took her home from the Ritz about 9:45 o’clock. His story to the police was that he took the lady in black home at a much later hour. “lf that is the hour Miss Anderson says von Schlegell took her home,” said Mr Swann, beaming brightly on the assembled newspapermen, “ipy only course is to do what they do in Kentucky under similar circumstances. A Kentucky gentleman, you know, believes a lady in preference to his own eyes.!’ When Mr iSwgnn was pressed for a Continued ou the Third l’uae. WASHINGTON, June 22—Management? of the National Republican campaign was entrusted today to an executive committee of 21 members headed by Chairman Hays of the party’s National | committee. Seven women have places j on the executive committee. Announcement of the membership of j the executive committee together with the composition of two committees to I arrange for notification of Senator,Hard- | ing, the party’s Presidential nominee, j and of Governor Coolidge, Vice Presi- i dential candidate, ended a two days conference in which Mr Harding, < hair-man Hays and a special subcommittee J participated. While the subcommittee was concluding its conferences Senator Harding received a group of Suffragists. They natl gone to the Capitol with prepared statements, but the Senator’s action in presenting his views first caused them to change their plans and simply stale their request for a definition of the nominee's position. In reply Senator Harding said that while he could not with propriety attempt to force any State to hasten action on the Federal suffrage amendment, he would reco’it-mend ratification should any State officials seek his opinion. Suffragists Make Veiled Threat The suffragists, numbering 26 from 21 States, through their spokesman. Miss Alice Paul, chairman of the National Woman’s party, in presenting their request made veiled threats of throwing their support to a third party. Miss Paul said tonight her delegation was “deeply disappointed with Senator Harding’s position.” In appointment of the executive committee the usual practice of confining membership to the National organization was cast aside and Harry M. Daugherty of Columbus. O, Senator Harding's pre-convention campaign manager, was taken in. The appointments announced include only 20 names, but Mr Hays said the additional member would be announced as soon as he could communicate with the prospective appointee. • Seven women are named as members of the executive committee and Mrs Harriet Taylor Upton of Ohio is appointed vice chairman.
