Crowd Jams Lower Broadway to Get Glimpse of King L And Crown Prince on Way to Visit Stock Exchange ASAREAL'HEMAN' "NOT IN" AT RITZ CHEAP FOOD SALE And Albert Likes the American ' Kids, Too, as Proved in Central Park. Never Have the Sufferings of But Deputy Sheriffs Wait in Lobby for Michel Mural's "Return." EMBRYO U KINGS SAD YOM KIPPUR AMERICAN JEWRY'S DAY OF ATONEMENT PRINCE OWING B1L OPEN WASHINGTON LIKE BELGIAN KING FOR SILK HOSIERY MARKET STALLS IN Ancient Race Been More Acute Than Now. Always tha most significant nnd X New Tork policeman detailed to rn&rd the royal family of Belgium was asked to-day what ho thought of King Albert The cop replied: "I think he's a regular HE man. I'll say be IS I" . "Any particular thing give you that Impression?" Tep," ho replied. "It was the hit he made with them kids up In Central Park. When you see a bunch of kids take to a feller tho way them kids took to King Albert, you can bet the family plate that he's a ICE man." At tho Waldorf last night, after a. day packed with thrills and riotous reception, the King was asked what particular feature of tho eventful day had Impressed htm most. Tho member of his suite who asked 'the question admitted later that he expected to hear that It was the ride from the Battery up through New York's financial grand canyon storm swept with confetti and shrouded In an amazing spectacle of tangled ticker tape; That rldo from Pier A to City Hall did visibly Impress the royal party. Bat this unforgettable sceno was not uppermost In the King's mind last night THE 30,000 NEW YORK SCHOOL CHILDREN IMPRE8SED HIM. To the King of tho Belgians the predominating feature of the whole day was tho reception a greeting that had the true ring of spontaneity given him by 30,000 school children In. Centra Park. If the King, as the cop said, made ft hit with the kids, the klda won a place In the heart of Albert that will never need the protection of a League of Nations. Those children, black and white, representing practically the nations of tho world, had been groomed to meet royalty. Bomo were a bit ragged, others were garbed In Juvenile finery but tliey were all washed and brushed spotless for this gtjdod occasion. And they stood In prim rows, at first frightened considerably In the pres ence of a real king and queen. Bo they stood In orderly and formal squadrons that seemed hardly to breathe while King Albert addressed them from the wooden platform. The teachers themselves seemeC to think at first that the best thing they could do tinder such entirely extraordinary circumstances was to assume a sort of a West-Polnter-at-attentlon at tltude. They were as prim and rigid ted probably uncomfortable as the Thlldren. It would probably have been a very on comfortably formal party for all ands If King Albert himself hadnt roken the spell by a singe move. CHILDREN LEARN THAT KINGS ARE MERE MEN. K children and teachers were reathing at all during the brief period that King Albert Queen Eliza beth and Prince Leopold looked, down upon, them from tho platform they became rigid rows of Inanimate statuary wben tho royal guests and their sulto came right down on the same grass that thoy wcro standing bn and approached within an arm's length of them. . It was a teaso moment for the kids. - Then tho Kink chucked Samuel Martin, aged eleven, ut r-irbllc bchool No. 67, undor the chin and smiled as only Albert can. "What's your name, young nvanT tho King of the Belgians asked. Bammy looked at first as enough ho was going to cry. Then bo started to laugh, caught himself, gulped, dropped his hat, started to plcx u up but thought better of It and finally snapped back to attention and whis pered "Wel-wel-wolcomo t-t-to our cit-dty." It was a moment that will probably remain Indelibly iiiavriDea on Sammy's young soul, and It ought to, because King Albert did not cry "Urf with his heudl" as Bammy undoubt. cdly expected hiin to. Ho merely pluced his hand affectionately on sammy-s youtniui snoumur and said; "i'ou aro a fine boy." Then the monarch passed on and Hainmy'a horrible embarrassment cooled ramd- lyly and ho turned to tho boy nearest to him and remarked, "Why, bo's Just a man atlvr ull, ain't he.'" That Incident servsd to shutter the unbending formality of the occasion. It evaporated undor King Albert's winning smile, utid children and teachers began to bieatho again. Their lust lingering doubts about tho King filtered awuy when they saw A. 8. Prull of tho Hoard of Education - Introduce His Highness to pretty Miss Matilda Do Mulder, twelve years old, of No. 763 10th Avenue. They watched Mutllda closelv to see whether she would cruck under tho strain. Matilda was flustered, She seemed to want to say something, but her breath seemed gone from her, her tonguo felt Uko lead In her mouth and there was an uncanny weakness In tho vicinity of the knees. Then she looked straight Into the King's eyes and caught that smile. Ho took her little hand in his and patted it. "I understand you wero born In my country," said Albert of Ulegium In nothing like the tone that she had imagined real kings were wont to talk. Matilda felt herself suddenly at case. "Vca," she said, "my father and mother and brothers and sisters were born there." "You don't look like u little Bel gian girl now," the King remarked. "I'm an American girl now," ro plied Mutllda quite decisively. Mutllda was nnltcd what she thought of K'ng Albert. "He Isn't llko u King at all," she yttUed. "He's Just lovely!" most widely' observed of tho Jewish religious days, Tom Klppur carries to-day a deeper and more solemn meaning than ever before. Yom Klppur Is tho great Jowlsh Day of Atonement. To Its sanctity as tho most Important of the fast days thero this year Is added a double slgnlilcanco In that tho cal endar has brought Yom Klppur on tha Sabbath. It Is perhaps the most traglo day of atonement In the history of Jewry. From their homo In Palestine, from tho shoroa of tho Baltic and the Black Beas, from Poland nnd tho frozen wastes of Siberia from every for eign land Into which Jowlsh relief workers havo penetrated, tho now year message that comes to this country Is ever tho some, "European Jewry Is perishing." Amorlca Is tho only land, the Amer ican Jewish Belief Comralttco says, In which tho new month of Tlshrl, tho Hobralo January, brings any Joy to tho Jowlsh population. Tho Jows In tho war-racked coun tries abroad havo suffered moro than any other people, and they are dying by thousands of starvation and dis ease. The Yom Klppur fast, during the twenty-four hours when no good Jew wilt allow food to pass his lips, will bo littlo moro than a continuation of tho flvc-year fast that has been tho lots of the 6,000,000 Jews In Europe. Orphaned children and widows aro continually being turned away from the overcrowded charltablo institutions and food sta tions to die In the streets of Poland and nearby countries. Tho only hope that the great mass of Jowrv will survive, tho coming winter depends upon America. Tho fortnight between Itaah Iln- shonah and Yom klppur Is observed as a penoa or repentance, during which the Divine Judge weighs tho earthly deeds against each Individual oerore entering his final rato In tho Book of Judgment. This year It Is a period of dceD sorrow as well for many American Jews. The records of Jewish relief nr-en- clos In New York show that several hundred thousands have tried with out avail to trace their dear ones abroad who havo been swallowed up in the, chaos of war when communi cations were broken. These people aro at a loss whether to hope that their loved ones are dead or that It Is their fato to face a new year of tor ribla suffering and sorrow. Another sad phase of th Is year s Yom Klppur will be tho momorlal service for the dead, when almost every Jewish family In the stricken countries, together with many In America, will mourn tho loss of ope or mora of their members. In view of the terriblo situation abroad, Jews throughout the country have organized campaigns and drives to raise a total of j5,uw.ow in trie United States under the direction of the American Jewish Rellof Commit tee, tho Central Belief Committee and tho Jewish Peoples' Relief Commit tee which aro appropriately culminat ing In mnny Btates with tne begin ning of tho Jewish new year.
