Youth Who Claims To Have Seen Virgin Mary Continues To Pray New York,Nov. 12. — Dark- eyed Joseph Vitolo knelt before a home-made altar in a Bronx vacant lot last night, whila more than 6,000 people stood in the rain and listened to him pray. It was the IStfn night that nine- year-old Joseph had come to the spot to say the prayer, the "Hall, Mary." The altar la built on a huge rock, where young Vitolo first claimed to have seen a vision-of the Virgin Mary. ' Wednesday will be the 16th night, and the last time that Joseiph conies to pray. "She told me that something- wonderful will happen that night." he said. "She didn't say what. I hope it will be something good." "Tt must be true," one of his friends said. "Joseph Isn't even a very religious boy. He's a Catholic, but he doesn't go to the Catholic schools. He would never have imagined that." There were so many people present that one side of the grand boncourse, a vast four-lane highway, was ropped off from traffic. Policemen usheied the quiet crowd. "I never aaw so many people quiet," one officer said. '"It ain't natural. It klnda gives you the creeps." Three bus loads of people came from New Jersey. Som« were on crutches. Others carried children in their arms. Young Vitolo said three prayers. He looked small and frail in the candlelight. He wore no hat, but a tightly buttoned toat protected him from the rain. When he had finished his prayers, a strong young man picked the boy up and carried him back toward his home. Now and then, Joseph reached down and touched someone on the head. People in th« crowd strained and pushed to touch his coat. He lives with his parents in a small apartment next to a store. Last night the Vitolo home was jammed. Two " of Joseph's elder relatives did their beat, but they •fere unable to keep atrangei-s out. There was a rope across the sidewalk outside. There were at least six politemen • and a sergeant. But people still slipped througih and entered the house. Mr. and Mrs. John Harney sat in one corner. They live in New York on the west side. Mrs. Harney kept asking, "he'll come through here, won't he ? Please, my husband has come so far. He'll come through here ?" Her husband was both lame and blind. "This is the way he always comes, lady," someone said. Then they brought young Joseph (hrough the door. Pie waj smiling, despite the rain in his hair, and waving to those around him. "I'm Big Joe," he said, holding up his hand as if to measure the distance to the floor, "Look, I'm Big Joe." Mrs. Harney puslied closer There was an anxious look in her eyea. She grabbed her husband's hand and shoved it forward. For a moment the sightless man touched the boy. Then they carried Joseph VI- tolo on toward the stairs. "I'm tfm-ry, folks" a man kept say- ng. "I'm sorry, hut you'll have to leave now.. Can't you see? He's going to bed." "We're very happy," Mrs. Harney .said. They were botft crying, Subscribe for The Dally News Three cents per copy.

Long promised by the company, long awaited by millions of' motorists, Sunoto Dynafuel is not just another new gasoline. but a. new kind of super power for American automobiles. In speaking of thla historic milestone in the progress of Amercan motoring, one official said, "Amer ica's victory in the air was won largely because of high octane aviation fuel produced in mass quantities by catalytic cracking, a' process first developed for major production by the Sun Oil Company. "Sun Oil engineering research was carried into the secrets of the molecular construction of gasoline itself. Sun engineers found 'out how to tear apart petroleum molecules and put them together again in an entirely new pattern, making possible this new type of super fuel. "Known to engineers is the fact that in gasoline, heavy molecules are low In octane quality, light molecules are high octane. However, and this is the big difference, in Dynafuel, both the heavy and light molecules deliver equally high octane power, thus giving unifomly high knock- less performance in all cylinders." Sun Oil Company also announced that its policy, which was in effect before the war, of marketing only one grade of gasoline, will again be in effect. All of its extensive facilities will be devoted to marketing of Sunoco Dynafuel exclusively. New "Show Boat" Memorial To Jerome Kern New York, Nov. 12.—The n*w production of "Show Boat" which will open at the Ziegfield theater Jan. 5 will be more than commercial venture. It will be a memorial to Jerome Kern, composer of this best-loved of all American musical shows, who died yesterday. Appropriately enough, what prob- i ably was Kern'3 last composition ' will bs used in the production—a new song for the finale. The 60-year old Kern, one of the nation's top melody-creators for more than 30 years, died at Doctors Hospital seven days after he collapsed while walking on Park Avenue. He had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage. He spent the last three days in an oxygen tent. While "Show Boat" was the finest effort of Kern's long career, he composed the scores of many other famous shows. A few of these were "Roberta," "Music in ths Air," "Cat and the Piddle," ''Sweet Adeline," "Th^ Girl fro«i Utah," "Sunny," "Sally" and "Stepping Stones."
