Dr. Krug's Decision
On Journey to Baha
Noted Surgeon Who Has Em?
braced New Religion of
Oriental Leader Long
Known as an Agnostic
The call of Abdul Baha, whose dis?
tant home at the foot of Mount Carmel
is to-day the mecca of thousands of
Bahaists from all over the world, is
the direct cause of Dr. Florian Krug,
an eminent medical specialist here,
giving up his long standing practice
to journey to Palestine. There he and
his wife will live at Haifa, the home of
Abdul Baha. They sail for the East
ne'xt autumn. Dr. Krug will continue
his work in the mean time.
His colleagues and friends are im?
measurably surprised at this step, for
he has long been known as an agnostic
and an analytical thinker, in addition
to his private practice, he is on the
Staffs of Mount Sinai and Lenox Hill
hospitals. His office is at 616 Madison
' Mrs. Krug has been a follower ?f
Abdul Bana for sixteen years. When
"tfce mystic visited this country in 1912
he was frequently at the Krug home,
-329 East Sixty-ninth Street. In 1920
Dr. and Mrs. Krug were in Palestine
and visited the "Beloved," as Abdul
Baha is known to his followers. The
peace of the place so permeated them
that the New York surgeon expressed
? wish that he might end his days in
the quiet of Haifa. Not long ago there
arrived a "tablet," which is the name
given to communications from Abdul
Baha, summoning the Krugs to Pales
?tine. It intimated that they might be
called upon to do missionary work for
the Bahaistic cause and to travel ex?
tensively in the East.
; The tenets of Bahaism are compre
" hensive in Uieir scope and embrace
everything from the stilling of indus?
trial unrest to a universal language.
The twelve basic Bahai principles
which the Krugs have adopted are as
.follows: (1) The oneness of the world
?of humanity; (2) independent investi?
gation of truth; (3) the foundation of
all religions is one; (4) religion must be
the cause of unity; (5) religion must
be in accord with science and reason;
(6) equality between men and women;
(7) prejudice of all Kinds must be for?
gotten; (8) universal peace; (9) uni?
versal education; (10) solution of the
economic problem; (11) a universal
language; (12) an international tri
.' . "We believe that the millennium has
dawned," said Mrs. Krug yesterday.
"In our religion there is no antagonism,
no hatred. Cooperation takes the place
of competition. Our principle is non
resistance. A follower of the Beloved
cannot lie, steal or be deceitful. He
' cannot do anything that is not nobla
and pure. We want to uplift ?M illu?
mine people all over the world."

| Rent Referee Proposal
Assailed by Realty Men
Lockwood Amendments Called
? Some Improvement, but Not
Enough to End Friction
Stewart Browne, president of the
United Real Estate Owners' Associa?
tion, commenting on the amendments
to the rent laws introduced in the Leg
islature Saturday by Senator Charles C. '
Lockwood, chairman of the Lockwood !
committee, declared that as a whole j
they were an improvement, but that
they did not go as far as they could go
to reduce existing friceiton, without in?
justice to the laridlord or tenant.
Mr. Browne objected to the amend?
ment providing for the appointment of
referees by the Appellate Division, who
are to receive $25 a day and $10 for a
stenographer, to whom the justices of
the Municipal Court may refer non
jury rent cases.
"The United Association objects most
strongly to these referees," said Mr.
Browne. "In the first place, the $25 a
day ought to be $50, as they have the
same discretion as the municipal jus?
tices as to the reasonableness of the
rent. It is these discretion decisions
that have produced the extreme bitter?
ness between landlords and tenants.
The United Association doesn't think
this bitterness will be reduced, by the
appointment of referees, but will be in?
