On the eve of the second anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, in which Mr. and Mrs. Isidor Straus perished, 1,000 children, mostly public school boys and girls, gathered last night in Hamilton Fish Park under the auspices of the East Side Protective Association to honor the memory of the two friends of the east side children.
Several speeches were made amid the evening closed with the sounding of "taps" by the bugles of the police boys of the association.
