Crowds Are Orderly.
CHICAGO, May 14.-(R)-State
St., one of the world's busiest thor-
oughfares, capitulated Wednesday
night to half a million merry-.
Seemingly, all Chicago converged
on the famous street in celebration
of the all-Chicago trade jubilee.
Men, women and children packed
the street from the Chicago river to
Van Buren St., a distance of ten
blocks, giving the police what they
described as their "biggest assign-
ment." .
More than 2,500 policemen were
on the job. The crowd was orderly
for the most part. Several score
persons were overcome, so great
was the press of the crowd. They
were given first aid at stations set
up along the street.
One policeman carried away so
many fainting women that he him-
self was overcome. One man died of
heart disease. He was Dennis Sulli-
van, a barber, caught in the crush
at State and Madison streets.
While huge searchlights swept
the skies and ticker tape showered
down, the carnival held sway for
three hours along State St., which
was gaily festooned and converted
into a six-rign circus. A half dozen

LONDON,.May 14. -- (R) - Prime
Minister Ramsay MacDonald told
the House of Commons today in an
announcement of government air-
ship policy, that Great Britain will
not build any new airships for the
present but would retain the R-100
without alterations as an "experi-
mental airship."
Since the wreck of the R-01
there has been keen interest in the
government's future course regard-
ing airships.
Mr. MacDonald said today that
the British airship is a modern
craft not yet proven either a fail
ure nor a complete success.
The R-100 will make "no spec-]
tacular flights," he said, and Par-
liament will have to decide what
experimental purposes it will be
used for. -

Chicago Professors Publish Book
Advocating Reserve for
NEW YORK, May 14.-( P)-A plan
whereby American employers would
be required by law to set apart a
reserve to care for unemployment
was proposed today by two Uni-
versity of Chicago economists who
conducted a comprehensive survey
of the unemployment situation at
Swarthmore college.
The plan is contained in the book,
"The Problem of Unemployment,"
by Prof. Paaul H. Douglas and Aaron
Director, published today.
The authors conclude that slight-
ly more than 150,000 workers are
protected today from the risk of
unemployment by trade union, em-
ployer and joint employment bene-
fit plans - represnuting approxi-
mately one-half of one per cent of
the gainfully employed wage earn-
ers and salaried workers in the
United States.
"Since it has taken a decade for
even this number to be covered,"
say the authors, "it would seem that
while such ventures are extremely
valuable, both as experiment sta-
tions and to get the public mind
interested in the subject, we can-
not rely upon voluntary efforts if
substantial progress is to be made
in furnishing adequate protection
to the workers."
The authors' plan proposes in

Those who will take part in the

Producer Passes After
Celebrated Career
of 50 Years.
Began Work With Play
of His Own at
NEW YORK, May 14.-(:)-
David Belasco died today, ripe
with the labors by which for more
than 50 years he helped to shape
the course of the American stage.
Two months short of his sev-
enty4eventh birthday, the little
grey dean of Broadway succumb-
ed to a heart attack in the hotel
suita which had been his solitary
home for many years. At his bed-
side were his only child, Mrs. Morris
Gest, and his two physicians.
Several months ago an attack
of pneumonia caused him to be
brought home, seriously ill, from
Atlantic City, where he was trying
but a new play. He missed the
Broadway opening of his play-the
first he had failed to attend-but
recovered, returned to his studio
and had been active again until
this morning. Even until a few
minutes before his death at 4:15
p. m., his chance of recovery seemed
good, and he kept within arms

he hoped to select two or three for
production this fall.
Started Writing at 14.
The career he chose as a lad of
14, when he wrote and produced
"The Regulators Revenge," he pur-
sued withoutabatnigp to the last'
day o his life an t careerout-
lived its creator, for his 400-odd and
last production, "Tonight or Never,"
is a current Broadway hit.
Life-long application to the art
of stagecraft, an inherent love for
his work with infinite capacity for
painstaking in every detail, made
David Belasco one of the most suc
cessful men in the theatrical world.
Plays with which he was concerned
as author, collaborator, adapter, or
manager, are more than two hun-
dred in number, some two score of
them still fresh in the minds of
theatre-goers of either this or the
previous generation.
Successes Make Long List.
The successes which' Mr. Belasco
here began and continued as stage
manager for Daniel Frohman at the
Old Lyceum, and later altogether
on his own account, make a long
list. Among them was "May Blos-
som," which was one of his first
pronounced successes; hishco-au-
thorship with Henry C. De Mille in
"Lord Chumley," which started E.
H. Sothern on his prosperous ca-
reer; .The Heart of Maryland," in
which Mrs. Leslie Carter was made
a star; his version of "Zaza" in
which she continued her successes;
his collaboration with John Luther
Long in "Madame Butterfly" and
"The Darling of the Gods," in
which Blanche Bates became fam-
ous; "The Music Master," which
brought David Warfield into the
first rank of acting; collaboration
again in "Adrea," a classical tra-
gedy of the Byzantine period in
which Mrs. Carter appeared; "The
Girl of the Golden West" and "Rose
of the Rancho," which were other
vehicles-for Miss Bates; "The Grand

Army Man" and "The Return of
I Peter Grimm" in which Mr. War-
field increased his fame; and a
number of more recent productions.
