Prof. Kittredge Dies; Anecdotes of Noted Shakespearean BAUVSTABLE, July 23-Prof. George Lyman Kittredge of the Harvard English department, world-renowned authority on Shakespeare, cied today at about 8:30 a. m., at his Summer home here. . He was 81 last February, and had been in failing health for some time. Retired from active work, he was preparing a special edition of Shakespeare at the time of his death. Prof. Kittredge's .town home was on Hilliard st., Cambridge. He is survived by his wife; one son, Henry C. Kittredge, vice rector of St. : Paul's r School for Boys at Concord, N. H., and two daughters, Miss Dora Kittredge and Mrs. Con rad Wesselhoeft of. Marlboro st. I Boston. By LOUIS M. LYONS "Kitty" has made his last exit. ' ' It was. for the majestic drama of his exits from his lectures that George "Lyman Kittredge, world's , greatest Shakespearean scholar, was most affectionately remembered hy three generations of. awed Harvard and Radcliffe students. He had the grand manner' and the theatrical presence of a Shakespearean actor in the conduct of his famous course in Shakespeare. His magnificent white beard and his pierc-&g sailor's blue eye, vere set off by his white tweed suits nd wing collar and often by a crimson tie. Students dared not cough in his ess. But except for the unsuf foed interruption of a cough, he feigned to pay no more attention to the students before him than a proiessional actor pays his audience. . To "Kitty" his class was his theatre, and the lecture platform his wge, which he trod with the commanding stride of those Yan-ee sailing masters he revered. He never entered until the bell had rung and the class was assembled. Then from a rear cen-J5r door, in strode 'the master wmself, his walking stick at a nourish, his pearl gray hat in tend. Up the center aisle, as if following unwritten stage direc-lions, "Kitty" proceeded, as a hush tpread before and behind him. Vfuiet," he called, all superfluous, to the half-terrified undergraduates, as he spread his stick and scholar's bag on the lectern, nd began his lines.

Marshall, Army chief of staff, said today that efforts to have selectees petition Congress against extending their service beyond one year was "sabotage of the most dangerous character." "We must treat these men as soldiers," Marshall told the House Military Affairs committee. "We cannot build an Army if it is to be used as a political club." He warned the committee that Congress would be guilty of a "colossal error" if it depended on voluntary enlistments to maintain the nation's armed forces at this critical point. Gen.

Cemetery at Belleau Wood mmttmmmmiimmiitm By GEORGE WELLER Special Cable to the Globe (Copyright, 1341, by Boston Globe and the Chicago Daily News. Inc.) SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE, July ; 23 In the great cemetery at Belleau Wood, where lie sleeping hundreds of American Marines who died'in the last war, there is a new arrival a German. With a helmet decorating his grave, he has been buried by his Reichswehr comrades, according to a traveler coming from France, in the most prominent place in the American cemetery, at the center of the main walk and directly in front of the memorial in honor of the fallen Marines. A member of the American Cemetery Commission discovered the new German grave during a tour of inspection. He requested the Germans to consider moving the body elsewhere in order to preserve the cemetery's char acter as an American shrine. The German authorities replied that the German had died in the precise spot where he was lying and that the Nazi practice of burying soldiers where they fell made inter ment there necessary. . ' ; There was ' no fighting at Belleau Wood in the 1940 campaign. The cause of the German's death within the American cemetery remained undisclosed. Police Think Lynn Girl Slain Outside of Lane Report Mio and Vichy Sign Pact The search for the murderer of Frances Cochran of Lynn was suddenly thrown wide-open this afternoon when it was definitely established that she had not been murdered in the secluded lane in Salem where her body was found. This conclusion resulted from careful analysis of her wounds by Medical Examiner Ignatius Zie-linski of Salem and microscopic examination of the grounds which disclosed a significant absence of blotches which would have been left had the murder actually taken place at that point. Wide-spread searcn or vacani EXTRA houses as well as a hunt for an automobile, possibly - blood- stained, was forecast in light of the new information. Police believe the girl was murdered elsewhere and her body dragged to the lonely lane. LYNN, July 23 Following several hours' interrogation, by Lynn and Chelsea police in their investigation 6f tKe. brutal murder of 19-year-old Frances Cochran, a Chelsea man was cleared of all connection with the case and released this afternoon. The man, a laundry truck driver, was taken into custody by Chelsea police this forenoon and brought to the Chelsea Police Station for questioning. Meanwhile, as the body of the winsome young girl was borne to her last resting place at impressive funeral services attended by hundreds of her friends""and acquaintances and wary-eyed plainclothes-men who mingled unobtrusively with the mourners investigating officials had one of their most puzzling clews eliminated. , Lynn Murder Continued on Page 6 By JOHN BARRY) Editor Globe War Diary As Japan moved menacingly today in the direction of Singapore a Far East crisis was rapidly coming to a head. The United States Pacific fleet is ready to carry out United States policy. Secretary of the Navy Knox announced. That policy is opposed to any breach of the peace or upset of the status quo. The Government of Great Britain set a deadline for Japanese expansion on the Thailand frontier, apparently accepting temporarily Japanese presence 600 miles from Singapore. Acting Secretary of State Sumner Welles arranged to receive Admiral Nomura, Japanese Ambassador, late today, presumably to voice American disapproval at any act which will further strain relations. A report out of Vichy tonight Dancing Is Going to Get Rougher and Why Not, Says Director HOLLYWOOD, July 23 (AP) stage. It's part of a routine he's "Whadda you care what people think? Get out there and . jump around, throw your amis and inhibitions.. You'll .VV J , also forget your troubles." It's dance director Nick Castle talking. If you've been waiting for the day jitterbugging cues ana waltzes return, he advises ' you not to hold your breath. If he's right (and the movies pay him plenty to be) dancing is going to get rougher and rougher. "In a while," he says, "you won't be seeing ntterougging. The popular dance will be a com bination of rug Cutting and the primitive jungle dances, the kind you do to tom-toms. He paused to illustrate with a bit of jumping around and arm throwing which shook the wooden creating for "Hellza Poppin'. "Anything goes," he puffed.- Castle's theory is that dancing , s4 r fttki ROUGH STUFF Nick C.itl an Billi Lane get primitive. this kind is good for the mind because it's good for the body. "What people need now is to get out and exert themselves," he says. "There's nothing like fast dancing to do the trick. An hour or so for the average person and he goes home and to sleep too tired to worry." He has another idea, too, a sort of hot-cha square dance "Great stuff for parties." "Anybody could do it,"' he enthuses. "Imagine the fun of a rhumba square dance, for instance, rhumba steps in square dance style." . Anticipating a query, he went on: There's no question of morals in jungle dancing. Folks who want to be immoral don't need dancing. That's&lways been just a long-hair excuse. Even if it were a good argument, waltzing would lend itself better than fast stuff. Doing a jungle dance, you won't have time to let your mind wander," states that France will grant bases to Japan in French Indo-China if French sovereignty is not impaired. Japan imposed censorship on radio and cables. President Roosevelt termed the action "significant" but went no further.. There is "no question" that new I military movements are imminent, according to Secretary Knox. London dispatches suggested that the United States might freeze Japanese assets as a mark of disapproval. Barry Continued on Page 3 Berlin Admits Moscow Drive 'Slowed Down By JOSEPH W.
