Residents of. this little hamlet yesterday bowed their heads in sorrowful memory beloved fellow villager, While the 'rest of the nation had dedicated the day to celebrating the sixtythird anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt, statesman, president and man of letters, Oyster Bay remembered the familiar sympathetic, big-hearted "Tedwhose grave on the hill- is an ever present reminder of their doss. The little wooded cemetery has become the object of pilgrimages from all over the world and thousands were there yesterday. Among them were hundreds of former friends and thousands of admirers, besides formal delegations of Spanish World war veterans and Boy Scouts America. They came, fo the most part, to lay flowers or flags on the grave, while diplomats from foreign countries brought testimonials of respect from governments and peoples abroad.

But old-time neighbors and intimates the colonel say that of all tributes his memory, he himself would most have appreciated those of the children whom he loved, and so theirs was the part of paying homage in the name Oyster Bay. Played Santa Claus. The older children of Oyster Bay Cove school, which nestles in a grove trees a few hundred yards from Roosevelt's grave, remember him best the Santa Claus of their annual Christmas celebrations. Some of them now sit in the seats and use the desks once occupied by the elder Roosevelt children, Kermit, Theodore, Archie and Ethel. None of these has forgotten the red -fattened figure, rosy cheeks, powdered mustache and grotesque false beard of the principal actor in their Yuletide pageant.

Three weeks before Christmas it was Col. Roosevelt's custom to summon the teachers to Sagamore Hill, a mile away and there instruct them to have all the children write letters to telling what they wanted him to bring them. Then, after all the scribbled requests had come in, the colonel and. Mrs. Roosevelt would gO in to New York and buy the gifts asked for, adding to each a "toot" of rock candy, a confection of which the colonel recalled he had been inordinately fond as a boy.

On Christmas Eve he and Mrs. Roosevelt would drive over to the school, where, under a great elm tree, he would distribute the presents to forty or more youngsters and then join in singings carols and romping and laughing with the spirit of play that never quite deserted him. From the time his own children were old enough to gO to school, he missed, playing Santa Claus but twice when he was in Africa, and again during his illness at Roosevelt hospital, Even on that last Christmas eve the children were not forgotten. Col. Roosevelt delegated Archie to attend to his annual duties, telling his son what kind candy to buy and how to play the part of St.

Nicholas. The night Archie played Santa. Claus his father told friends who visited his bedside how much he missed participating in the event. So yesterday these children, many of them "grown-ups' now, with children their own, carried Oyster Bay's message of respect to the graveside. The present school pupils marched to the cemetery in 8 body and placed wreath on the grave.

Then they the colonel's favorite songs and their teacher told of his good deeds and exhorted them to follow his example, Floral Blanket Over Grave. Though Roosevelt's birthday has become recognized as the appropriate timo for paying formal tribute to his memory, thousands of people have visited his grave during the year. Flowers by the basketful were strewn upon it daily last summer by motorists who gathered the blooms as they toured over Long Island. On the several little Sundays plot their inside the offerings massive cove ered Iron grating with floral blanket several feet thick. The traveler falls under the spell of Roosevelt': memory almost before dismounting from the train that carries him from New York to the former president's home town.

As he turns his back on the rallway station he is noisily solicited as a tare by "Jitney" drivers offering to show him the Roosevelt "sighte" in exchange for none too modest honorarium. If the wayfarer Recedes, he is driven through the town over smooth streets, paved many years ago, he will be told, through the publicspirited efforts of Col. Roosevelt. And If he sets out to walk the mile or two to the cemetery, he must still traverse the town and meet with constant reminders of the man whose life there has become rooted in the. traditions of the tittle community, The legend on the cornerstone of a public building seta forth Col.

LOOT WORTH $10,000,000 (BY HOWARD R. BANGS.) New York, Oct. Jesse James WAS a piker. His children would let him know, were, he living to hear the tale. The Jennings gang and Fay boys, by the same token, were mere neophytes in the refined art of mail robbery, to the less notches cultured on their occupation.

Instead, he's after a world's record. It's been forty-one years since "Jimmy" Hope and his gang "busted" a Broadway bank wide open. Back in those days the exploits of "Jimmy" were considered something. It wasn't any child's play to empty the vaults of a "Flash Alley" bank of $2,700,000 in cash and securities. And for a real he-man's record that one stood until comparatively a few days ago.

But on Oct. 24, 1921, three youths, whose leader was hardly out of his early twenties, pushed "Jimmy" Hope's record far into the shade, and left town it job. there They to cool looted off as mail- a car small a at least $10,000,000 worth of cash and securities, and they did it right on Broadway and just above the sacred deadline of the financial district. Details of Robbery, The details of the simple manner by which these three super-bandits complished the world's- greatest robbery makes, when contrasted with the elaborate technique not only of "Jimmy" Hope, but of a score of other "old masters," one of the most amazing chapters in the annals of crime. Since that exploit, the shock of which is still vibrating along the traveled lanes of the greatest city in the world, has come a deluge of claims against insurance companies.

Already claims for more than a million dollars have been filed, and the end seems far, far away. Hardly an hour passes in which some brokerage house or bank fails report losses. Postoffice inspectors, staggered by the immensity of the hold-up, now believe that virtually every bank and brokerage house Manhattan south of Wall street had cash or securities en rout to tions in the five sacks of registered mail seized at the corner of Leonard street and Broadway, At least one of the great pouches was filled with neat packages of assorted currency, running to a staggering total. The other contained bonds, liberty bonds and others good for cash without question. It was half-past ten last Monday night that a mail truck a mail truck chugged away from the postoffice opposite destined city hall and turned up Broadway, for the main postoffice at the Pennsylvania station.

Lower Broadway is virtually deserted at this hour. Save activities along newspaper row there little going on to attract attention, and that's why nobody saw a green touring car run slowly out of Leonard street. -turn its headlights down Broadway a moment and then stand waiting under an are light.

"Back around here Into Leonard street, brother," he said. "And keep your mouth Menaced by the gun, the driver obeyed directions. In the shadows that by-way the world's greatest robbery occurred.

Three men got out the touring car. They were masked and armed. "Break her open," said the leader the driver, pointing to the seals on locked doors of the mail cage. said another as the driver complied. "Now this for you." He drew an ordinary muslin flour sack from cont pocket and pulled it over the helpless driver's head.

A jerk at a piece string and the driver's head was encased in the bag. Loot Worth $10,000,000. Then, climbing into the mail truck, the trio began turning over the bags, By some intultion they, selected those containing registered mail. One by they threw them into the tonneau of green touring car, five of them 000 worth of loot. Quick as a flash, the bandit driver his engine going, another had clambered in beside him while the third spoke quietly to the mail driver.

"Keep quiet till we're gone," he said, "or- -you won't live to tell the Then he leaped into the tonneau with the stolen pouches and the bandit roared off and out of sight up Broadway. And that was the last seen of it. Detectives, postoffice Inspectors department of justice men, assigned the Job, said they were completely sea.

The cotton market opened steady at a decline of 10 to 25 points under overnight selling ordura brought by the easier ruling of prices late yesterday.
