TWO HARVARD 1922 MEN NAMED AIDS TO READING Cutter and Zeo Appointed to Staff Of the Attorney General i ' I K, s ''' Wt 1 s v- 4 'V -.4 A ' M''x i -j. ; kA BATTLES PRINCIPAL OF LYNN SCHOOL , Continued From the First Page. Edgar, when seen at his home tonight, declared he had not played hookey more than three times, and said when he was called to the principal's office this morning he was told he was- to be whipped for playing hookey 17 times, the penalty for which would be 100 strokes. VINCENT J. ZEO RICHARD A. CUTTER Atty Gen Arthur K. Reading yesterday afternoon appointed two additional Assistant Attorney General. They are Richard Ammi Cutter of Cambridge and Vincent J. Zeo of Springfield. . Mr Cutter is a graduate of Harvard College, 1922, and of the Harvard Law School 192t wmi. tt . srngnia oi coiumDUS School, 192a. while at Harvard he was and other organizatio an editor of the Crimson and later of the Harvard Law Review. He is the son of Mr and Mrs Louis F. Cutter of Salem. Mr Zey is also a graduate of Harvard, 1922, cum laude, and of the Harvard Law School. He is a Democrat and a member of the American Legion, Knights of Columbus, University Club ns. Started Roughhouse It wasn't fair. he said, for all I was entitled to was 25 cracks and thats why I started the roughhouse. Nobody would stand for getting 100 when 25 was all there was coming to them! The boys mother, while admitting she did not thlnk&her son had done right, agreed with him it was pretty hard to., get more punishment than one deserved. Principal Driggs, when interviewed tonight, told a very different story. In all the 17 years he has been principal of the Shepard School, he said, he has never experienced anything liko the Peloquin boy's attitude when he started to chastise him this morning. The school records show, the principal explained, that the boy has been absent 20 times since the beginning of the term last September. He wrote to the boys father at his home, but received no reply, lie said, and then wrote to him again at the General Electric Company offices, where he is employed. Yesterday, he said, Mrs Peloquin came to his office and told him that of the 20 absences only three were legitimate, making 17 times that Edgar had played hookey. That was why he was sent for this morning. Mr Driggs said that he told the boy to hold out his hands, but, before he could strike him ho saw the boy had seized a chair, which he promptly let fly at him. FIVE B. & M. STATIONS WILL BE ABANDONED Continued From the First Ta&e. by the freight terminal. ,As the two stations lie between the point of diversion and the North Station, passenger service at these two stations cannot be given except by operating passenger trains through the freight terminal. "The movement of such passenger service through a freight terminal is to be always avoided wherei possible, both because of operation of passenger trains through a freight terminal Involves the hazard of safety, and also because it is bound to increase the cost of freight operations. The railroad has already invested over 51,000,000 in the development of the terminal, the plans for which call for an expenditure of $4,000,000, and has constructed the tracks over which it proposes to divert passenger trains on the Southern Division into the North Station at a cost of between $800,000 and $900,000. Of course an ex tensive collection of Misses Dresses, too. DRESSES for WOMEN sums up the mode as presented by the most important designers here and in Europe.

Edgar again seized a chair, Mr Driggs stated, but this time he managed to grab the boy and disarm him before he had thrown it. After the boy had quieted, Mr Driggs called the police and the boy was taken to Headquarters and soon allowed to go home. The boy had made a good deal of trouble at the school last year, the principal said, by persistently smoking in school, but had finally signed a written agreement not to smoke any more. There Is to he a conference at 8:30 tomorrow morning at the office of Superintendent of Schools Harvey Gru-ver, attended by the boy and his mother, the principal and his teacher. The conference is for the purpose of trying to decide what can best be done for the boy. Mr Driggs has no desire, h said, to have the boy arrested for assault upon him, as he could easily have done, but is only anxious to find some course which will be for the youngster's own good and which will make a man of him. MEDFORD WOMAN BREAKS ARM IN FALL MEDFORD, March 15 Mrs Emilv Blodgett of 30 Walnut at received a 'racture of the left forearm when she tripped and fell down the stairs at her home this afternoon. Mrs Blodeett was taken to the Lawrence Memorial Hospital where she was resting comfortably tonight. & ,na Blodgett was formerly president of the Women s Auxiliary of the Medford Post, 45, American Legion. Welfare of the Many We think this is a situation where the convenience and welfare of a few must give way to the welfare of the many. "The greatest inconvenience resulting from the abandonment would bo caused to patrons of the train, known as the Court Train, leaving Lowell at 9:02 a m, and arriving in Boston at 9:40 a m. At the suggestion of the department, the railroad has agreed to advance the time of this train, when the stations are abandoned, so that it will arrive in Boston 10 minutes earlier. In its order on the North Cambridge, West Somerville and Somerville Highlands station, the department says,: The Cer.Sral Massachusetts branch and the Lexington branch join near North Cambridge and run through to Somerville Junction, where they join the Southern division. The Fitchburg division runs almost parallel thereto and only a short distance away. It is proposed, by the abandonment of these stations and the rails for passenger service, to divert ail passenger trains from the Lexington branch and the Central Massachusetts branch over the Fitchburg division, joining said division near West Cambridge. In this maintenance of duplicate trackage and certain tower expenses would be eliminated, but the principal object attained by such consolidation would be the limitation of the hazards and expenses of seven crossings at grade in a very congested area. Of these two crossings, one at Davis sq. Somerville, and one at Massachusetts av. North Cambridge, are extremely busy crossings at all times of the day, and many accidents have taken place at these crossings. "The passenger traffic from these three stations has steadily decreased from year to year in spite of the increase In population in that territory. The Boston. Elevated Railway system serves this entire territory adequately and frequently. The train counts would indicate that passengers use the trolley cars interchangeably with the steam trains, there being nearly three times as many passengers Inbound as outbound. The West Cambridge station, on the Fitchburg division, is not far from the North Cambridge station, to be abandoned, and the station on the Southern Division, not far from the Somerville Highlands station to be abandoned. THREE PRISONERS ARE BROUGHLFROM WEST One Faces Charge of Larceny of Jewelry Two Others Accused of Deserting Families in Boston With three prisoners, Inspector Stephen Flaherty of Headquarters and patrolman Martin J. Conroy of the district attorneys office returned to Boston last night from Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and Chicago. They arrived at Headquarters early in the evening and, after booking thcr prisoners, sent them to the City Prison Albert Jerome, 50, was brought here to face a charge of larceny on April 1, 1925, of 210 gold rings and two diamond rings, valued at $1722, from Lazar Troub, a Boston jeweler. When arrested in Minneapolis, police say, Jerome was the holder of the jewelry concession in a department store there. The other men brought back were i Edward F. Acorn, 48, wanted here for alleged desertion of his wife, Carrie, and his daughter, Dorothy of Maitland st. Back Bay, a year ago, arrested in Chicago, and Oscar W. Anderson, 27, also wanted on a desertion charge. taken into custody in Milwaukee. According to the authorities Anderson left his wife, Frances, and his 6-year-old son, Carl, three years ago.

The brothers invested $10,000 in the project for building the great stockyards of Omaha, an irivestement which ultimately grew into $10,000,000. BENJAMIN F. SMITH 1908, at the age of 83; George died in 1922, at the age of 97; David in 1911, at the age of 84, and Benjamin lived to be 97. Two sisters reached the ages of 86 and 92, respectively. Benjamin Franklin Smith was born April 2, 1830. son of George and Mehitable Clifford Smith. Ilis mother lived to be 100. The Smiths came of pioneer stock, the ancestor of the New England branch of ther' family coming from Bristol, Eng, in 1698, settling in Berwick, Me. Benjamin F. Smith and his brothers grew up in Freedom, Me. George Warren Smith conceived the idea cf making sketches of different cities, having them engraved on a steel plate, selling the engravings. This began the career of the brothers in business, in which all four embarked. David Smith conceived the idea of having a painting of the death bed of Daniel Webster made by Joseph Ames, celebrated Boston portrait painter, and Benjamin took the painting to England to have Mottram engrave the plate from the painting, and then the brothers sold the prints all over the country. The engravings sold very well in the North and the scheme netted at least $50,000, a fortune for those days. Established Omaha The project was a very discouraging one for a long time and Benjamin Smith determined that the ' Omaha Stockyards would never succeed unless he could persuade Armour, then the countrys biggest packer, to locate there. He finally did this, but not without paying Armour $750,000, a tremendous sum for that time. This marked the turning point and from that time on Omaha grew by leaps and bounds, the. Smith fortunes increasing as the city grew. By the middle 80's the fortune was well established. With their fortune stabilized flie four brothers determined, about 1890, to return to the scenes of their younger days In Maine where they bought a 500-acre tract of land, between Rockland and Rockport. on the shores of Penobscot Bay, most of its virgin territory, which was cleared in great part by David Smith, who loved to work with an ax. Benjamin Smith built a mansion for himself on a part of this property known as Clifford Lodge. Benjamin Smith came before, the public three years ago when he won the famous will fight when the so-called lost will of Mrs Cordelia Smith Murray, sister of Benjamin Smith, was disallowed by the Knox County Court in Rockland, Me.

Miss Jennie Cohen of New York city, yesterday filed a suit against him in Federal Court here for $100,000. Miss Cohen states that Cohen proposed to her Dec 22. 1925. and that she learned that, Nov 15, 1928, he married another woman. Became Bankers After this the brothers decided to enter the field of banking and Francis was sent to Omaha, then a small town, to open' a small banking house there. He built a one-story building in what is now the center of Omaha. In 1858. with the discovery of gold at Pike's Peak, Colo, Francis Smith sent for Benjamin and equipped him with a wagon train filled with food supplies, trinkets and such tilings, to sell to the miners. After a terrific journey to Mountain City, the contents of the wagon- train sold at tremendous profit and later shipments netted more profit for the brothers. Ultimately the brothers decided to go into the gold mining business for themselves and got a mine near Mountain City, which isfterward became the famous Smith & Parmelee Mine. They had many difficulties in defending the title of their property, having many clashes with the famous Gen- Fitz-John Porter, which stopped after Benjamin Smith challenged him to a fist fight and gave him a thrashing. While Benjamin and David Smith spent most of their time at the mine, the other two went to New Y'ork to make investments for the rapidly j growing Smith fortune. The gold would be shipped to New York, where tho other two brothers would resell it at ever-increasing premiums. During the financial depression when Government bonds sold very low, the Smith brothers bought large amonnts of them, also investing heavily in various railroad bonds, which they would sell out when the bonds went up and reinvest in lower-priced bonds. 1 After a time they began to lend money for the building up of Omaha, the early rise of which was very large- Funeral services will be held from the Waterman Chapel on Commonwealth av at 3 oclock tomorrow afternoon. ft t I e So.
