Tax Lien Abuse??
Bureau of Arrears To Be
Created to Keep Record
of All Charges as Well
as Sales for Delinquency
Assemblyman Thomas MeWhinncy
will introduce in the Legislature this

in the 86 Institutions
Contributors to the Jewish charitable
i institutions of this city arc to be
i taken into the confidence of those in
I charge'of the collection of the moneys
for such purpose and will bo shown
just how their donations are expended.
To-night at the annual meeting of the
Federation for the Support of Jewish
Philanthropic Societies, at the Hudson
Theatre, a motion picture presenting
actual scenes in the eighty-six insti?
tutions of the federation will be shown.
This picture, which is declared to bo
the most elaborate of its kind ever
taken, was planned by Felix M. War?
burg, president of the federation, and
will supplement his annual report,
calling for a budget of more than
$0,000,000 for the support of the in?
stitutions in 1910.
Actual Work Is Shown
There is no attempt in the picture
to evolve a "movie plot," but it gives
m natural sequence the actual work
performed. The heads of the various
institutions in many instantes appear
in the picture. At the Children's
Court, for instance, where the Jewish
Big Brothers and Sisters have their
representation, Judge Franklin phase
Hoyt will appear on the screen.
This motion picture runs the gamut
of charitable endeavor, hojTrinning with
the arrival of Jewish immigrants from
the Old World and their settlement in
the teeming East Side, where the first
steps toward education and American?
ization are depicted in the Educational
Alliance, both the children and their
elders being taught English and the
babies cared for in the nursery while
their parents are employed.
Next are shown the various activities
of the United Hebrew Charities, at 356
Second Avenue, going into the Jewish
home and earing for the needs of tho
family. Then' are then pictures of
the Hebrew Free Loan Society, where,
without interest, loans are made in
sums nl' from In. to $500 to cover both
temporary emergency and establish de?
serving persons in business.
Higher Training Is Shown
Tlie higher education of the young
men and young, women is depicted by
tho work of the Hebrew Technical In?
stitute and the Hebrew Technical
School for Girls, while recreational as
well as educational opportunities are
shown at tho Young Men's Hebrew As?
sociation .'nid the Young Women's He?

The eighty-six Institutions now have

Young Pianist Shows, in His Re*
citai, Promise of Future
Greatness in His Art
Mischa Levitzki, who, with Guiomai
Novaes, shares the distniction of being
' a pianist of the most evident talent
. who has appeared in the last two or
three years, gave a recital yesterday
afternoon at Carnegie Hal! preparatory
to a tour of Australia. Mr. Levitzki
is a sincere, a poetic and a polished
artist; he lacks something as yet in
j the broader sweep of his art; he paints
! with exquisite detail rather than in
; broad strokes. As a consequence he
, was at his best yesterday in such
things as the Gluck-Brahms Gavotte
and in the Chopin group, notably the
; F sharp Impromptu, the C minor Noc
! turno and the three Etudes. The
Chopin numbers in particular lie
played with tine finish, beautiful artie
' ulation and a straightforward senti
| ment. Yet even in the Beethoven
Waldstcin Sonata there was a high de?
gree of merit, though he probably
failed to plumb all the depths of the
work. Mr. Levitzki goes to Australia
with our best wishes.
His is a genuine, a growing talent,
which, unless all signs fail, will bring
him to the heights.
Vladimir Resnikoff, the blind Rus?
sian singer, gave another of his re?
citals yesterday afternoon at Aeolian
Hall. Though his voice is far from
?being a perfect one, his intelligence,
his verve, his abounding humor,
makes interesting all that he touches,
und he touches nothing that is out of
reach. He is especially admirable in
the folk-songs of his native land, and
such was the case yesterday. In the
great Russian "Dubinushka," the Rus?
sian "Gypsy," "The Young Pedler,"
the "Song of the Lamites" and in the
group of Ukrainian folk-songs he was
delightful, as he was in a song by his
accompanist, Oscar E. Schmenke, en?
titled "Mocko, the Educated Ape,"
which possessed an infectious humor.
fie was warmly greeted by un audi?
ence of moderate size.

Prince Would Wipe
Out Foreign Press
?To Curb Bolshevism
Former Jersey Governor Ad?
dresses Republican Club;
Dr. Silverman Defends
East 'Side Against Charge
Another re-action to the Rev. George
A. Simons's statement that the East
Side was a breeding place for Bol?
shevism came yesterday at the Re?
publican Club's Saturday non-partisan
discussion. Former Governor Joh*.* D.
Prince of New Jersey had urged
gradual abolition of th? foreign langu
? age press to curb Bolshevism in the
| Russian Jewish and other foreign coio
; nies here.
"I have asked Governor 1 rim a not
? to leave until I have said a few words
on this question," said the Rev. Dr.
"The Rev. Simons made a great mis?
take in saying* Bolshevism is fostered
1 on the East Side. I have not sufficient
words in which to denounce Bol?
shevism. But it is a mistake to draw
the Russian Jew into any argument on
"The Bolsheviki are deluded men and
women. It is wronj" to draw in the
name of the better class of any people.
for Bolsheviki are not found among
"Let us denounce the Bolsheviks as
Bolsheviks. They are not of any peo?
ple or nation. They are criminals at
i-.eart. The Jews on the East Side have
given their blood in this war, and we
oui?ht not denounce them because a
few happen to be criminals."
"I had no intention of denouncing
the Jews," ex-Governor Prince ex
plaiaed. "A Jew who adheres to the
Jewish moral code cannot be a Bol?
shevik. Unfortunately, many have cast
off what they term the 'chattels of the
synagague.' From among these have
come many Bolsheviks."
"There is a confusion of terms in
the minds of many people on this ques?
tion," said Dr. Silverman. "Because
one Jew is a Bolshevik there are those
who are prone to denounce all Jews

that all future ?apital Ships

The significance of this lies in the well-known fact that, because of the
great resistance of water against a propeller, no high-speed (or automobile)
engine has ever been serviceably successful in driving even a small speed
boat. No greater demonstration is therefore possible of the efficiency and
economy of the electrical drive. The new series Owen Magnetic with a
higher powered Engine coupled with the Magnetic Transmission presents
"The Car Ideal."
