F, of L. URBAN. Til, Sept 1 (A. P.I A challenge to University of Illinois officials to show that they are not harboring-what he styled as "subsidized vice," was thrown down in the State Federation of Labor convention today by Kd-wln R. Wright of Chicago, .former Stato president. Mr Wright painted a lurid picture of "fraternity house moralitr." "Better burn universities to tna ground," he said, "than pay them money if our sons and daughters attend them to learn immorality." On his motion the convention unanimously extended an invitation to the university to send spokesmen to defend the charges against it. "My attention to university morality.'" Mr Wright said, "was provoked by recent magazine and book literature, some of It by college officials. And I have found evidence to support the reports in some places. I have been told of a fraternity house which was completely covered with a canvas shield, while inside a drunken orgy took place, which even savages would not have tolerated." The charges were declared to be "foolish" by university officials. Dean K. C. Babcock. acting president, indicated that "full consideration would be given ths Invitation of the, conven tion that some university official appear to counteract the- charges. Thomas A. Clark, dean of men and known throughout the country because of his fatherly attitude toward boy students, expressed surprise. "What do they mean by 'subsidized vice'?" he asked. Dean of Women Maria Leonard declared herself horrified. "Such an imputation," she said, ' is tantamount to maligning a person's character. Dean Babcock, Dean Clark and myself will probably decide what action to take." 10-STORY APARTMENT HOUSE SITE TRANSFERRED Another step toward the erection of "reproof 10-story apartment house at . , Beaon st, opposite the Public Oarden, has been taken in the passing of parers transferring the present property from Louis B. Thacher and others to the 81 Beacon Street Trust. It is planned to complete the apartment house in the Spring of 1926. The house will have 10 apartments, one on each floor, each to consist of 1 rooms and four bathrooms. Extra servants' rooms, storerooms, laundry and other accessories will be on the ground floor. All the masters' bedrooms and the living rooms will have fireplaces. The aera of the lot is about 4000 square feet, with a frontage of 50 feet on Beacon st and a rear entrance on Byron st The architects. Joseph D. I.eland & Co, have planned for an interior finish of limestone and brick. Every modern convenience will be installed." The enterprise is in the hands of Gogrgin & Ripley, Inc. of New York. T Dennie Boardman. Reginald and R. deB. Board-man are the renting agents and will have the general management of the building when it is completed.

Mr Peabody pointed out that the Inventory was fTrst raised in January, ISO, at the instigation of Arthur R. Sharp, resigned treasurer of the com pany, who believed that the inventory, as shown by the reports from the mill. I was too low. Later the inventory was ! raised twice more, until last year it I was carried at nearly double ite actual j amount. Through his attorney. Mr Sharp ad mitted responsibility tor the first increase, but added that he was as much I surprised s anyone at the real cond.1- I tlori of the company.

About TOO stockholders of the Haml!- j ton Manufacturing Company, repre- i senting- about 23.0QO .shares of the com- pany's stock, at a special stockholders' j meeting in the Chamber of Commerce Building yesterday morning forlned a ; committeee of three stockholders to in- i vestigate the position of the company to straighten out the difficulties of the company, whose accounts show a $500,-000 deficit. The committee will report at another meeting at 11 a. m., Oct 21, in the same building.

Rodman Peabody, who had been engaged by the board of directors to make a complete investigation of the inventory account which is declared to have placed the company in a financially weak position, stated that he could find nowhere evidence that any of the officials of the company had profited by the $500.00 deficit discovered in the accounts of the company, adding that misrepresentation of fact rather than misappropriation of funds accounted for the deficit. "In my opinion, the directors might well have demanded more detailed ward G. ("Neddo") Flannacan. a boxar, who was killed in tho Pickwick Clu collapae. Mrs Flannagan Is suing ths Pult ompany.
