TWELVES SHE VEDriE3DAY "EVETnNG. JUNE 23. IKS DR. T. S. BAKER NAMED ACTING HEAD AT TECH The . board of .trustees of Carnegie institute yesterday accepted the resignation of Dr. Arthur A. Ham-; erschlag as president of Carnegie 'Institute of Technology, of Dr. William J. Holland as. director of the museum and "of John W. Beatty of the-department of fine arts. Dr. Thomas SI Baker, secretary of the .school, was appointed acting president to succeed Dr. Hamer-hchlag., Douglas Stewart was named , to succeed , Dr. Holland and Homer Saint-Gaudens will replace Mr. Beatty. Ir. Hamerschlag will , enter private business in this city and New York. Dr. Holland and Mr. Beatty will continue ' their " work with the institute In the capacities of direc-: tors emeritus. In a statement issued , by S. H. Church, president of the board, it was explained Dr. Holland and Mr. Beatty, both being beyond the age of 70, find some of thevork s arduous. Both have sufficient pub- Iication work on hand to, occupy their,-time in the institute for several years. The board is following ; the example . of universities and large, industries throughout the country in relieving men of ad- .' vanced age of most of the arduous i routine work. BEGRET EXPIIKSSKD. In the statement issued By Presi- dent Church, the board . expresses j deep regret ot losing the services of j Dr. Hamerschlag. ' "The trustees v acted with great reluctance in ac- cepting Dr. Hamerschlag's resigna- tion as president," the statement ', reads. "Dr. Hamerschlag has for the past three years been desirous of Tfteing relieved from his position as head of the technical schools, but has been urged by members of our board to continue in that capa'city until certain formative plans in connection with the school, whih he himself had inaugurated, could be carried to completion." "Mr. Stewart is a graduate of Tale and as Dr. Holland's assistant has devoted himself ' untiringly to the development of the' museum. He is familiar with its honorable and useful past, and" is entirely capable of its further development." the statement reads.- Mr. Saint-Gaudens is the son of the noted sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. He has enjoyed an artistic preparation that eminently qualifies him as director of the fine arts department. The board believes he will be most valuable in the building up of the fine arts department. Dr. Baker has been secretary of Tech since March, 3019. He was graduated from Johns Hopkins and obtained his Ph. D. in 1S95. He later studied at the University of Leipsig and held a chair at Johns Hopkins universty from 1000 to 190S, when he became director of the Jacob Tome institute. KERR WILL ATTEND DEMOCRATIC LUNCHEON.

An anonymous letter writer In Chicago, with an elegant sense of humor, sends this in fancied refuta-I tipn to a statement of mine: "The moon does not revolve on Its axis. If, it does why do we never see more than one side? . Ain't science 1 wonderful?" . , I - It is unfortunate for Anonymous I that he wrote the Question 'which he 1 has put between his error and his i gibe. It makesit worth while to use him as an example for others. " Evi- dently that question was regarded by I its author as an unanswerable poser, I the mere statement of which proved his case. But had he thought it through he I could hardly have failed to see that, as far as it goes, it proves just the J opposite case. It is very easy to work it out graphically on a pad of paper. First draw in the center a circle, say half an inch In diameter. to represent the earth. Then at a distance of a couple or Inches draw four quarter-Inch circles to represent the moon, placing one of them to the right another to the ien, a inira aDove ana me iown oe- low ine eartn, mus snowing ine moon at four equi-distant points In its orbit around the earth. Draw three vertical straight lines I parallel to one another, one running through the centers of the upper and lower moon circles, and also through the center of the earth, between them, and the- other two through the centers of the left and right moon circles. These parallel lines represent a fixed direction in space by reference to whic rotation or non-rotation Is determined. Finally make a. little cross or a dot, representing a fixed point on the moon. Suppose you begin with the 'left-hand figure and place the dot on the edge of the moon facing the earth. Then put a similar dot on the other three figures, each in the same relative position to the vertical line and the center of the moon. Now, begining at the left, go round the circle of dots. The one on the left lies toward the earth from the moon's center; the one below lies at right angles to the direction of the earth; the one on the right lies on the side away from the earth, while the one above, like Its rnate below, is situated in a direction at right angles to that of the earth, You need but a glance at the dia gram as thus completed to see that I in this case the moon does not ro- tate or revolve on its axia, but that. nevertheless, as it goes around the earth, all sides of it are ln turn pre- sented toward the earth. This is precisely what does not occur with the actual moon, as everybody, .even Anonymous knows; consequently, the visibility to the earth of both sides, or all. sides, of the moon. Instead of demonstrating a rotation of the 1 moon would demonstrate its bob- I rotation. I Now, since we do In reality see but one side of the moon, how are we going to show that that fact Is due to its revolution on its axis? j Simply make another diagram like the first In all respects except that you place the dot, representing a fixed spot on the surface of the moon, J always on the side facing the earth. J That insures that the same side of the moon shall continually be turn- ed toward the earth.' But again, you need only to'glance at the diagram ln order to see that. In this case, the dot on the moon does not, as It did Four state cops went on duty yes-before, retain always the same post- terday. The troopers will be worked tion with reference to the fixed dl- rection in space, for at first the dot is on the right of the line, then it is I cn the line above the moon's center, J nnt it Is to the loft of the line, and fourth it is on the line below the moon's center. So. the moon is rotating in space and making one turn cn'its axis In going one around the earth. Strangely enough, a few years ago a man widely known for his achieve ments in a certain branch of science was reported to have "mathematically demonstrated" that tne moon does not revolve on its axis, ot. rotate. His error seems to have been -widely dis seminated, and was calculated to en courage' such mistakes as that of Anonymous. It was based on the assumption that the moon may be regarded as if It were attached to a rigid beam extending from the earth an carrying the moon with it arouna ine eann. i nave, in a pre- ceding article, snown now tnis as-1 sumption is inaamissiDie. Lest anyone should suppose that 1 am maintaining In this matter a de- I'aiaDJo uirui j, , if. a. iicn jiruunai li myself, concerning the moons rota-I tion, I remark that all astronomical authorities, without exception, take the -same, view." Take any textbook. or treatise, you may choose on . the subject Newcomb's, Young's, Proc tor's, Moulton's, Ball's, .Herschel's, Nelson's, Todd s, Alry's, or any other, and you will find the rotation of the moon on its axis affirmed, "Aain't science wonderful!'

He i had no r money . and bis general appearance indicated that he was on . the ' rocks. Suddenly he disappeared and when he returned a few -days later he was arrested by Patrolman Ruff ner on , complaint of Pete JImpen.'another alien who had been frequenting the water front. It developed that Jimpen and Smorey went -to Greenville together to work but, when they discovered that after paying their board " they would have little money left, they resigned, intending . to return to Pittsburgh to . get . another job. The men had purchased their tickets and were at the railway station waiting for a train when Smorey, informed his companion that he would remain in town another day. Jimpen could not understand this move and -he came back alone. , When - he arrived in Pittsburgh. Jimpen discovered that he was short a watch and a stick pin. Then he made a 'few deductions worthy of Sherlock Holmes and it wasn't long until he began to associate Smorey with the ' disappearance ot his property. It looked as if his companion had remained in Greenville to get rid of him and he kept his eagle eye open for th absent one. The following day he caught sight of Smorey in Grant st- The gentleman was on dress parade and he bad good reason for it. He wore new trousers and & new shirt. As a sartorial display, nothing like it had been seen before in the district. The apparel was so loud that it fairly shrieked. A few days before Smorey looked like a bam and here he was In the gayest raiment. Jimpen was certain that the man had taken his watch and pin and sold them for money with which to get his loud toggery. He requested Policeman Ruffner to arrest Somery and the officer did as directed. At the hearing in the case held before Magistrate Sullivan in Central station the policeman said he never saw such a transformation in the appearance of a man as that in the case of Smorey. , The prisoner, who had no money when taken into custody, could not explain his sudden prosperity and the court fined him $10 with the alternative of spending a month in the works. A Night of Revelry. About 2 o'clock - this morning Patrolmen Len hart and Block were called to a Jioase ln Diamond St., where disorder was rampant. They said they found Margaret Kirkpatrick and Mary Shaffer intoxicated and carrying on in an indecorous manner. The house was in a topsy-turvy condition and the two women were arrested on a ctfarge of disorderly conduct. The officers stated that while waiting for the wagon the women swore in a shocking manner and called them vile names. John Shafer, who was responsible for the arrest, said his wife harbored a number of women while lie was at work and the days were spent in drunken revelry. It was said that for a time he took his little boy to work with him as he didn't want the lad to be mixed up with a gang of booze fighters. The two women were informed by the court that ' each would have to pay a fine of 925 or serve two months in the workhouse. ALBERT HETTINGER DIES FN HOME IN CINCINNATI.

What ails the much discussed flapper has been dis covered by a world-wide authority on flappers, flapperism and flapper dom. The authority is no other than Tr. Corliss P. Hargraves, foreign snper-intendent of Sunday schools for the Methodist Episcopal church, who Is in Chicago today to make a report to the conference ' of bishops and ministers of that chnrch in session here. - Dr. Hargraves has studied the question of youthful tendencies and morality in every country in the world, and his solemn verdict is: . "The flapper needs religion." "Without an nndergirding of religion." he continued, "all the more frivolous tendencies of the American flapper will run Into degeneration. If not worse. It is .the religious tendency of today that holds the flapper movement from going to all sort of excesses. , "I want to add to that statement. I think that there Is a good deal of hysteria on that subject that has no adequate foundation for - the moral standards of onr youth in America can most favorably be compared with the standards of youth anywhere. "The impression that I get of American youth is that their morals and ideals are. fundamentally sound. "While It is easy to go to extremes unconsciously, yet ln this new freedom of expression X find a basis of sincerity and naturalness which, when property directed, tends towards the finest of character. "I hold no brief .for the frivolous flapper, but X am thoroughly optimistic on- the subject of American youth. There are none finer ln the whole world."

FIVE MORE FIRE ENGINE HOUSES - TO BE ABANDONED trniinwinsr a conference with Public L Safety Director McCandless. late yes terday. Chief wmiam tsenneit or ine bureau of lire, ordered the abandonment July 1 ot five more Are engine houses. The houses are No. 20, Grand-view ave. and - Sweetbriar st.. Du-quesne-Heights; No. 37. Rebecca and Colombo sts.. Garfield; No. 56, South -side ave- Northside; No. 09. Warren St. Northside; No. 61. Homestead ave. and Commercial sC, North Homestead. Besides these five houses Mr. Ben-, nett also announced that Truck Co. No. 18. located with No. 36 Engine Co. at Stanton and Hawthorne sts.. will be transferred to No. 9 Engine Co. at McCandless ave. and Butler st. The discontinuance of Fuel Wagon No. 7 on the Northside also has been decided upon by the officials. The engine house properties are to be sold. Director McCandless said that the firemen and others employed in the engine houses to be vacated will be assigned among the different fire 'districts of the city. Two captains, whose identity has not yet been disclosed by the head of the fire bureau, will be placed on the retired list on pensions. The six lieutenants of the abandoned companies will be demoted to the ranks in the order that they were promoted. Rev. Henry Fox, pastor of the German Evangel! tfal Protestant church, Shaler st.. Duquesne Heights, and John P. Finn, secretary of the Washington Heights board trade, went to Director McCandless office yesterday afternoon and protested( against the disbanding of Engine Co. No. 20. The proceeding is a part of the city's retrenchment policy.
