Due to the opposition within his
church to his policy on amusements,
Mr. Blackman once each year has
submitted his resignation. Last
spring it was rejected for the third
time and a raise in salary was voted
him. This he declined to accept,
however, stating that he made mon
ey in addition to his salary by ref
ereeing boxing bouts. His new du

We hear much talk about the numer

other things which, before and dur
ing the war, we deemed so essential
to our welfare and enjoyment but,
really one can not see a single speck
of difference in the store displays.
They seem to have as many, if not
more, of the old-time gee-gaws, and
an unlimited number of innovations.
New York children should have lots
Vf fun selecting their holiday gifts.
It makes one think of those who will
not be so fortunate for instance, the
millions of Russion youngsters who
are now being fed by the American
Relief Administration, headed by
Herbert Hoover. It makes one con
clude that a very human Christmas
gift would be one of the food remit
tances which are being sent to Rus
sia to help the older folks in the
stricken country, and which can be
obtained by applying to the American
Relief Administration, 42 Broadway.
