CADETS CHEER PRINCE ON VISIT TO WEST POINT Koyal Party Watches Fu- ture Officers Pass' in Snappy Review. EATS LUNCH WITH THEM Vulcs Tells Students to r Traditions of Grad- uates in France. Tho dlfferenco in rank, from a mili- tary viewpoint, between colonel ana enflpt. Is considerable. Cadets as a rple don't bo wild with enthusiasm over colonels Just becauso thoy are colonels and colonels, particularly vis iting colonels, do not set great store hv cadets. It takes consldcrablo of a colonel to get a real cheer from red blooded cadets over whom ho has no rnntrol. But It can be done and Col onel H. It. H. The Prlnco of Wales of His Majesty's weisn uuaras, tno somewhat versatile visitor that New York Is entertaining, demonstrated the fact In forceful fashion yesterday. After a day sightseeing as a civil- ian, H. R. H., as his military Intimates refer to him, donned again a uniform and accepted the invitation of the War Department to inspect tho cadets of the United States Military Academy Bt West Point. There was a zlpplness about the breeze that swept across tho historic parade ground overlooking tho Hud-to- n yesterday that alone Inspired prightliness. It called for briskness of step and movement Just tho thing rallltary men arid football coaches like to put snap Into action. But there was something else In tho air up at West Jtolnt that caused tho lads of tho military academy to show off every- thing they had. It was the realization that their reviewing officer Is not so tauch older than they are themselves tad they wanted to show him some- thing. They did. And they did It in rich ft way as to cause H. It H. to Bongratulato them heartily on their garformanc. . Cheer for the Prince.. Whan It was all over the cadets Efteered the Colonel with Just a little different shading In the cheer than ever a Colonel received at West Point before. It was a tribute td a splendid young soldier by splendid young sol- diers in the making. The Prince came ashore from ft. M. S. Rjnown about' 10:30, and, accompanied fcy Viscount Grey, the British Ambas-rndo- r; Rear Admiral Sir Lionel Halsey, Gen. John P. O'Ryan, Major-Ge- n. John fiiddle nad Rear Admiral A P. Niblaclc the last three American ofllcers of ficially attached to his suite arrived at tie Grand Central Terminal a few min- utes before 11 o'clock. A large group of tr.en and women were gathered in the terminal to greet tho royal visitor, and many young nomen.thren flowers In his ray as he passed. He paused for a moment half way down the steps from tha Vanderbllt avenue cntranco whllo the crovd cheered him. The Prince was mot at the depot by Statlonmaster W. A. Cramer and escorted to the private car Pioneer, In which he arrived at Garrison, across the river from West Point, a few minutes after noon. Miles Bronson, Etncral superintendent of the New York Ontral, was In the cab of the electric tractor that drew the special. Arrived at Garrison the Prince was ferried across the river, but not before he had taken time to shake hands with two nr three children who had gathered on the station platform to greet him and saluted another group of school children who lined the short walk to the ferry itliarf. As he stepped from the ferry the Prince, was met by Brlg.-Ge- Douglas JIacArthur, Superintendent of the Acad- emy. Gen. MacArthur and the Prince exchanged salutes, the former saying: \I am very glad to welcome you to fl'est Potat, sir.\ Review Fames Prince. The Prince with his suite got Into aut- omobiles along with members of Gen. JJacArthur's staff, and was quickly whisked up the hill toward the gray tone buildings that mark the entrance to the Academy. The reviewing stand Prince Will Visit Grave of Col.

Two other battalions followed In quick suc cession, and executing a left form faced the Prince In review order. There was no delay. Col. Danford; commandaut of cadets, gave the order, the cadets snapped their rifles to the \present the uand played the British national an them while the Prince and Gen. Mac-Arth- as well as all the rest of the military present, stood at tho salute. As Boon as the last bars of the anthem had died away the Prince, accompanied by Gen. MacArthur and Col. Danford. with the rest of the staff ofllcers follow- ing, began the inspection. The Prince walked down the long lines of gray clad figures, scrutinizing every face. He ex- pressed his approval briefly to Gen. Mac-Arth- ur and Col. Danford, and then took his place at the reviewing stand for the march past. This part of the ceremony was performed with a rhythmic precision that delighted everybody present The Prince returned the salutes of the com pany commanders and whipped his hand to his visor snappily when the national colors came opposite. His face betrayed. his keen enjoyment of tho spectacle. But the intlmato contact between the Prince and the cadcts-pth- o cause for tho Informal cheering, for the West Point yell being given for Windsor, was after he had lunched with the cadets In the great mess hall. The Prince's Address. This Is what he had to tell them : \I am very glad to have had this op portunity of visiting the Military Collego of West Point. During the great war I hid the privilege of visiting several United States divisions In France and on the Rhine. This enables me to realize how valuable the ofllcers trained here at West Point proved to tho country In the great emergency. Now that I have seen a parade at the college Itself I under- stand what a splendid tradition of mili- tary conduct and discipline the college Inculcates. I am an officer of the Brig- ade of Guards, which claims to know something of discipline and drill. So I watched your parade with a very care- ful eye, and I congratulate you all' on the high standard of drill and discip- line which you displayed. \There are Just two things which I always try to say to young sailors and soldiers who are kind enough to Invite me to meet them. The first Is about discipline. Free and willing discipline Is the basis of all law and order and Is Ju3t as necessary for great nations In peace as In war, and discipline Is not merely learning how to do youc duty that Is only half the battle It Is learn- ing how to do It In perfect comradeship with other men. Autocracies may trade on the unwilling discipline of slaves, but democracies live, and must always live, by the willing discipline of free men discipline such as that of a well trained football team. \My other point Is tradition. Remem- ber what the splendid traditions of this college have don in the last two years. Value this tradition and this training now, for the more you value It the greater will be Its worth, not only to your own great nation but to all nations which have tho same democratic purpose and Ideals In the world. Tou cadets have a great example beforo you, and you can never go astray If you follow as closely as you can tho men who fought and won In the great war.\ Returns to Tfevr York. After luncheon the Prince was taken on a tour of the post, during which he Inspected tho chapel and one class room. The Prlnco left West Point a few minutes before three, crossing to Gar- rison, and Immediately entering his spe cial train which was waiting.

The Prlnco left tho Renown at 7 :30 last night In the midst of searchlight ana rocket Illumination, with bombs shaking the air. The lights, blue and green and red, from the Renown and the American warships In the Hudson lighted his launch to tho Eighty-sixt- h street wharf. He was then driven to the New Amsterdam Theatre on West Forty-secon- d street for the sparkling illumination furnished by tho colorful Zlegfeld Follies. Bert Williams and George Lemare were winding up their i snooting gallery act when the Prince entered a box at the right with Rodman Wanamaker and Admiral NIblack. The act halted abruptly, the lights went up, and the Prlnco was cheorod riotously. Before the performance went on Mrs. William K. Vanderbllt, Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbllt and Lady John Ward entered the box, taking 'the for- ward seats. There was a rufllo of ap- plause for them, too. WAR'S REALLY OVER, COL. BASTEDO DANCES Discards Her Uniform Delicate Silk Gown. for Nothing has so definitely brought home the fact that the war Is really over as tho sight of Col. Helen Bastedo, commandant of the Women's Motor Corps of America, dancing at the Waldorf- -Astoria last night In a low cut silk gown of delicate hue, with a filmy lace scarf around her shoulders. During the war New York became so accustomed to the sight of tho Colonel In her uniform directing the movements of motor car loads of soldiers and army trucks and so on that people got the Idea she never got out of her uniform and never would. But she did last night However, tho decollete was all for the sake of tho navy. Col. Bastedo and her motor corps were giving a ball In honor of officers of the battleship Renown, the temporary home of the Prince of Wales, and for our men from tho Delaware, Columbia, Pennsylvania and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Rear Admiral H. Melt P. Huso of tho Columbia helped Col. Bastedo receive. Tho affair, which was held In the roof garden of the hotel, was entirely In formal. The men and the motor corps girls and other girls danced gaily to Jazz music by Europo's band, and talked and laughed and supped. \We Just wanted to give them a good time without any formality,\ Col. Bas tedo explained. \There has been enough formality, and wo want to get away from It\ B0RPEN TO EEJOIN PRINCE. Premier Will Sail for Halifax on nenoirn. Special DopatcA to Tnz So.

TjHE SUN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1919, WOULD COT PROFITS ON HOLIDAY TURKEY Williams Appeals to Dealers to Make Thanksgiving Kenlly Happy Day. Arthur Williams.' Federal Food Ad mlnlstrator, made an appeal yesterday to tho patriotism and public splrltcdness bf tho Master Butchers Association of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Tho Bronx to coopcrato In an effort to mako this Thanksgiving Day n memorable one for the people of New York. He asKea inem to content themselves this year with tho same margin of profit on the sale of turkeys as last year. A of the fair price com mittee and Mr. Williams conferred on this proposal In the tatter's office. The .Food Administrator stated that tho Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays probably would be the last in wnicn ne would hold office, bs the signing of peace means the abolition of the posi- tion. He said to the deputation : \Prices of turkey present the one dif- ficulty in keeping the cost of a Thnnks-glvln- g Day dinner down to the outlay of one year ago. In 1918 tne meat aeaiers were under suspicion of profiteering. This Impression has been removed, due to the cooperation given by the butchers to tho Food Administration. \I realize that your bverhead expenses aro higher than last year and that foods aro costing you more, but I will ask if you cannot mako a concession and ac- cept last year's profit on turkeys aa the basis for your prices this year. If you do this, you will enable many families to have turkey when on account of the prleo they would have to content them-rche- s with some other kind of meat on this holiday.\ Whllo this proposal at first was ob jected to on the ground that Increased wages, rentals and strikes .this year have had the effect of forcing up prices and that tho retailers are looking forward to tho holiday season to recoup some of the Tuesday m Union Suits for Men Warm Winter under gar- ments that fit the body with glove-lik- e snugiy s ; assuring a clean-cu- t outer appearance.

It was agreed that tho proposal would bo submitted to-d- to a meeting of the association, which haB a membership of ( about 6,000 dealers.

Reports Indlcato that turkey Is scarcer this year than last, and Is at present selling for from 60 to 75 cents a pound, according to whether It Is cold storage, Western or freshly killed. Last year tho average price was around 41 cents a pound. Live turkeys will have a email mariot this year, mid prohibition Is expected to cut off a long established demand. The old practice of winning n dinner by a lucky throw of the dice or the drawing of a high number went the way oj the Tom and Jerry bowl Cold storage houses reported approxi mately 373.490 pounds of turkey In stoiago at tho beginning of the month, a figure considerably lower than a year ago.

A tentative agreement was reached yesterday following a series of confer- ences among representatives of city milk distributers, farmers and officers of the Dairymen's League by which the OLD farmer will rocclve an advance of al- most three-quarte- of a cent a quart' for his milk during December. ' The agreement provides that the pflco of 3 per cent milk In the country shall he (3.68 per 100 pounds, or at the rate of 7.8 cents a quart Last December the rate was J 4.0 6 per 100 pounds, or 8iG cents a quart Tho December, 1918, price was approved by\ tho Fed- eral Food Administration. As usual, the farmer will be paid 4 cents a point additional for milk testing above 3 per cent butter fats., This means that If milk sold to dealers tests 3.6 per cent tho .farmer will receive $3.68, the basic price for 100 pound j, plus 24 cents, or 3.92.
