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
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
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
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.
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

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
Matilda felt herself suddenly at
"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.

of Now York If tho laundry strlko
that started this morning is a success.
It was called by tho Laundry Work
ers' International Union, Local No.

to 7,000. They wantjnoro money.
Shirt Ironers demand $10 a week,
and tho rules of tho union prohibit
one ironcr from handling tnoro than
400 shirts a week. Family Ironers
want ts a day. Drivers who havo
been getting $30 to $35 a week
demand $45.
Owners of hand laundries, under
the proposed terms, will not bo per
mitted to do any of their own shirt
Ironing, but must employ n $40 union

on output.
