It had previously been customary for two atheltic directors of the Y to play oth the teams. It was ruled they would be barred as professionals, so the seven man teams of the day were cut to five.

$$ Julius Miller Dies at 75; Former Borough President

New York-Julius Miller, 75, former State Supreme Court justice and former Borough President to Manhattan, died yesterday at his home, 22 E 88th St. He retired from the bench in 1950 after serving for 20 years. He was found dead in bed at 9 am by his wife, Diane. The family said he apperently died in his sleep. Int the course of Miller's long-public career which began in 1919, his greatest single accomplishment-one that he enjoyed harking back to as the years went by-was the construction of the West Side elevated highway along the Hudson River. As Brought President, he fought for the project against powerful opposition (it was on the calendar of the Board of Estimate 152 times) and finally had the satisfaction of turning the firs shovelful of earth on the much-needed arterial project at Canal and West Sts. on May 24, 1929. The concrete and steel viaduct, the first of the nation's elevated expressways, was subsequently named the Julius Miller Elevated Highway. It was the late Mayor James J. Walker, originally a foe of Mr. Miller on the highway project, who later insisted graciously, after he saw its worth, that it be named for Miller. As Brough President from 1921 to 1930, Miller a Democrat, was instrumental in changing the face of Manhattan. He built the ramp connecting upper and lower Park Ave. through the New York Central Building; widened all the avenues in Manhattan and built the center strip on Park Ave; adopted the plan for the East River Drive viaduct from 155th St to 165th Sts, and initiated the move to tear down the Sixth Ave. "El" and convert the avenues into a major artery. An active, restless man, Miller kept on thinking about Manhattan's traffic problems after his retirement from the Supreme Court at the mandatory age of 70. A month ago in an interview he predicted that the island's traffic snarl would get worse. He suggested a trans-Manhattan vehicular tunnel under 38th St, and another such tunnel running the length of Manhattan under First or Second Avenues. As a judge, Miller achieved the distinction of never having been reversed by an appellate court on any of the cases in equity where he decided suits without a jury. This was believed to be unique among New York jurists. (February 4, 1955)
