"I think we all ought to struggle, she said, "against our extravagant tendencies in these times of need. Mrs Samuel W. McCall, wife of the ex-Govemor. believed the coat an unwarranted extravagance unless there were extenuating circumstances, such as the employment of several men. which would remove the stigma. Miss Frances G. Curtis of the School Committee said that this is only one example of foolish women's extravagance. "You've got to have foolish people everywhere. she said, and Mrs Boston women ars indignant over yesterday's news that Mrs William E.

Miss Stoi laazl unf 'filed to a Globe reporter how her heart had been won bv the handsome musician, how she bad for four years held dream of a happy wedded bliss, and how her rosy hopes were shattered when her husband-to-be was captlated by a fair New York damsel to whom he was recently lnurried. Six large candy boxes filled wtth love letters and postal cards from Orsini to Miss Siorlaast were produced by tae flrl as she said. Here is how he pro-essed his low for ma on various occasions.

One of the letters related how 4 it stnl had played in Washington at a performance attended by President Wilson and family, and the musician wrote, Tine of the society belles was very nice to me, but please don't get jealous." ANNUAL CHARITY WHIST The annual charity whist of the Ace of Clubs, held yesterday afternoon at the Somerset, was attended by more than 30i. A group of vaung girls acted as markers, wtth Mre James L. Ryan. Brookline, neice of Cardinal O'Connell, as chief. Mrs William Nolan, Quincy, bad charge of bridge whist; Miss M. M. Finnigan of Cambridge, president of the club, was chairman of general arrangements: Miss Sara A. Green, secretary and treasurer, received the tickets at the door, and Mrs James L. Rvan acted as mistress of ceremonies. The club has been active during the war, supplying surgical dressings, and has adopted a French orphan, besides furnishing several kits for chaplains at the front. The proceeds of yesterday's whist will be devoted to aimilar charity work. For best Results use So-CO-ny Kerosene the sumptuousness of their garments. There are no laws now. except those of good taste, for New England women, but, according to the dozens of women who telephoned or gave their opinion on the subject of a 175,000 coat, Mrs Corey has no moral right to make such a purchase. With little French and Belgian children shivering in the cold of their wrecked homes, and with men and women in the stricken lands of Armenia and Rumania crying for bread, it is not believed right to wear a $75,000 sable coat, even if one has money enough to pay for It. Mrs Myra D. Lord, ex-president of the New England Press Association, was the first Boston woman to make a public statement. She said several other women had spoken to her in no uncertain terms of their disgust that an American woman should flaunt a $75,000 sable coat in the faces of French women who have sacrificed so much in war. Called an Insult to Women I think it is an outrage to the women of New England, who are answering the appeals of the Red Cross for castoff clothing and who have been economizing in clothes and food during the war, for Mrs Corey to tyear such a coat, said Mrs Lord. Women are working who have never worked before, in order to help the Government, and it is an insult-that an American woman should thus be able to belittle the sincere and thoughtful war workers. A friend of Mrs LordW a mother of soldier overseas, said: In the name of the womanhood of New England and of America, in the name of women who gave their husbands and sons for their countrys need, who have saved and are saving food and clothing for the worlds need, we wish to protest against this exploitation of extravagance. The making and wearing of a fur coat costing $75,000, when millions of people in Europe and in our own land are dying of cold and hunger, is an in-I suit and an outrage that should not be possible in times like these. Extravagance Criticised Miss Alice Stone Blackwell believed that Mrs Corey spent entirely too much on the lur coat, but she thought that PROF W. G. SABINE OF HARVARD DEAD He Invented Devices Used by Allied Armies Prof Wallace Clement Sabine, widely known as an expert in acoustics, formerly dean of the Lawrence Scientific School and a member of the Harvard faculty since 1892, died yesterday at his home, 348 Marlboro st. He was born in Richwood, June 13, 1868. At the Ohio State University he received the degree of AB in 1886. He then entered the graduate department at Harvard and received the degree of AM in 1888. In 1889 he was made assistant in physics, was promoted the following -year to an instructorship, became a member of the faculty in 1892, assistant professor of physics in 1895, and professor of physics in 1905. In October, 1906, he was appointed dean of the Lawrence Scientific School, to succeed the late Prof Nathaniel S. Shaler. Scarcely two years later he was appointed dean of the Graduate School of Applied Science. Prof Sabine was one of the most popular members of the Harvard faculty and his standing in the scientific world was very high. He was a scientific investigator of established reputation, a teacher whose instruction was characterized by painstaking accuracy, lucidity and stimulating abilty. Prof Sabine had written a book on Architectural Acoustics, which is used throughout the country by students of advanced physics. He was a man of marked personality. His influence at Harvard was inspiring, not only upon other teachers but also upon students. He had an infectious enthusiasm about his work. His experiments in sound effects are responsible for the excellent acoustics of Symphony Hall, as he was consulted constantly during the erection of that structure. Another tribute to his attainments is Jerome Hall. On the subject of wireless telegraphy Prof Sabine also was an authority. In January, 1916. Prof Sabine was appointed exchange professor to Paris for the college year 1916-17. While there he experimented with sounding devices, his work taking him on airplane flights and in trips under water in a submarine. As a result of his efforts he invented a sounding device for locating artillery, which was successfully used by the Allied armies. At the end of his period at the University of Paris he returned to Harvard, but a great part of his time was spent ex A ta ivl I at Washington. There in company with other experts he occupied himself in the development of the Liberty motor and other war inventions. He is survived a wife and two daughters. Funeral services will be held in Appleton Chapel, Harvard, Monday afternoon at 1. Alpha Theta Pi Sorority Dines The annual dinner of the Alpha Theta Pi Sorority of Somerville High School was held last evening at the Thorndike. Miss Helen Sweet was toastmaster. Miss Dorothy Dooling, Miss Elizabeth Hunt anA Miss Rena Hadley speakers. A musical entertainment was given by Miss Ruth Caulfield, contralto, and Miss Helen Sweet, pianist. The facultv was represented by -Miss Grace Sprague and Miss Elizabeth Hunt, and a silent tribute was given in memory of Miss Bertha Raymond, one of the elocution teachers who died a few days ago. The reunion committee included Miss Mildred Scribner. Miss Allene Holman, Miss Harriet Ford, Miss Eleanor Horrell and Miss Ruth Caulfield. A. F. Brtmners Funeral Tomorrow The funeral of Alexander Brem-ner, manager of the Boston Engineering Copipany, who died suddenly at hi Summer home in Wiiton. will take place tomorrow.

Dillaby, social worker of i mm Alice mil any, social woriter or Brighton, said the purchase of the coat I was out of place. With that amount of money a family could be supported in luxury for life, with several deeds of charity on the side, she said. Should Remember French Women Other women were loud in condemnation of the purchase of the coat. Many women who did not want their names published considered that the wearing of a $75,000 sable coat would not give Mrs Corey as much pleasure as giving away the money to little war orphans. One man grew indignant and wrote a letter to the Globe protesting against the-unpatriotic buying of a $75,000 coat. He quoted the sentence from a newspaper. Mrs Corey expects to wear the coat in the late Winter season when social activities are at their height. Then she will be able to forget the Paris women who have given their ail to the war and are unable to obtain even old shawls to keep warm. Does she expect the people of this country and France to admire the coat? Furnishes Food for Thought Mrs Mary Kenney OSullivan of Rox-bury, writing to the Globe, says: As an example of conservation, the $75,000 Russian sable coat of Mrs William E. Corey, wife of the steel magnate, furnishes much food for thought. The newspapers tell us that millions are now starving in Russia; that countless thousands of children and babies are suffering for food and clothing throughout the rest of Europe and that other thousands of babies in our own countr yare dying from the influenza due to malnutrition. They tell us of the milk famine in New York city, where the abnormal price makes milk prohibitive, not only to the poor, but to the hospitals filled with our wounded soldiers. What does a $75,000 sable coat represent? Power. But what kind of power? Not moral. Not ethical, certainly; not of a constructive nature, except from the standpoint of mere acquisition. This coat is bought at a time when the whole world Is struggling against waste when countless little crosses In France mark the resting place of those who have given all. that posterity might live.

Theodore Diechman, alias P. Ducie, of Boston, convicted on a similar charge, was given a two years sentence and fined $500. Federal officers believe Carmacelli and Diechman to have been responsible for bringing into this country thousands of dollars worth of opium. Narcotics valued at $5000 were found in a bag taken from Diechman on a train between Burlington and St Albans last June and shortly afterward officers seized $10,000 worth in Carmacellis apartments in Boston. Carmacelli was convicted yesterday on two counts of smuggling and two of illegal transportation of drugs. Diech-man was indicted for smuggling. A third man in the case is under indictment for conspiracy to defraud the Government. TRAIN STRIKES AUTO AND KILLS BURROWS Brakes Fail to Stop Machine at Needham Special Dispatch to the Globe NEEDHAM, Jan lh One man was killed and another seriously injured as the result of the auto in which they were riding being struck by a train of the N. N. H. H. at the Web-ster-st crossing, at about 7:30 oclock this evening. Charles T. Burrows of Greendale av. Needham Heights, was driving in an automobile in company with Capt Charles W. Coleman, M. S. and as they approached the railroad crossing were given the signal to stop. Having applied the brakes the machine failed to come to a halt because of the slippery condition of the road until it got directly in front of the train. Instantaneous death came to Burrows, while Capt Coleman escaped with a fractured arm and two fractured ribs. As the engine of the train was running backward it was necessary to call the wrecking crew to extricate the remains of the automobile, thereby allowing the train to proceed. Mr Burrows was employed by the Wilburn Carter Company, where he held a responsible position on the office force. He is survived by his wife. BURTON HOLMES SPEAKS OF ENGLAND IN WAR TIME Burton Holmes, in Symphony Hail last night, gave the first of his new- series of travelogues, the subject being With the Yanks in England. He began his lecture by saying that no one could visit Europe during the war without returning with changed ideas of life. Hence his pictures and lecture were devoted to show ing what changes have made in England by four and a PV and a half years of war, and in this he succeeded admirably. He began with pictures of ocean travel in war time, some humorous, some grotesque. A little side trip to Queenstown included pictures of the graves of the Lusitania victims. Then came London, a London where women do the work of men and do it well. Particularly interesting were the pictures of the institute for blinded soldiers at St Dunstans in Regent Park and the training school for army dogs. A long series of pictures showed the march of 3(W uniformed women war workers to call on the King and Queen. Of course there were some fine airplane pictures and views of the Eagle hut. The closing senes showed the first real Fourth of July London ever knew, including the famous baseball game, where puzzled Englishmen watched the Navy beat the Army and tried to applaud the hne play though they couldn't make out whait was all about. The lecture will be repeated this afternoon. Next week's lecture will be on Paris.
