Bonds of Fourth Liberty Loan

WASHINGTON, Oct. 26. According
: in information received from the. De
j par! ment of Labor practically all the
? work incident to the issue of $6,000,
000.000 worth of bonds for the fourth
Liberty Loan, with the exception of the
two press divisions, is the work of

j upon the two thousand women cm
The amount of speed required in get

complete revolution in the art of reve

The process of printing the bonds is
elaborate. The paper on which they
arc printed is made especially for the ?
purpose. When it is received at the
bureau girls count and examine the
sheets. The bonds are counted after
nearly every process of the printing,

Six bonds are printed on a sheet.
The paper is first, wetted down by plac?
ing twenty sheets between two wet
cloths under weight. After four days
the paper is ready for the first impres?
sion. It is then submitted to the same
process, and after another four days is
ready for the second printing. The
backs of the bonds are printed first,
then the faces. Practically the same
design is used for all the bonds. The <
difference in denomination is shown by
The fourth issue of bonds represents
the finest portraiture known in steel
engraving. As the backs and faces of
the bonds are not printed at the same
time, it is necessary to make them fit.
This work, which requires the highest
degree of efficiency and skill, is done by
girls. The bonds are also examined by
girls as they come from the press.
Girls do all the work in putting the
bonds in shape to lie pressed and
plated. Two bonds are placed hack to
back between heavy cardboard. One
Kill puts in the sheets, another the
cardboard. Eight thousand sheets a
day is the rate of the average girl
worker. They are then "ironed" by a
hydraulic press, live thousand pounds to
the square inch. After one more ex?
amination the bonds are then ready for
counting, packing and delivery.

The board's movement to conserve '
sugar resulted yesterday in the penal- ?

Beckmann will be cut off from further
sugar supplies until March 16. 1919,
for alleged false statements in his
application for sugar certificates. He
had said that he used 4.000 pounds in
May, June and July. An investigation
by the board showed, it is said, that
he had sold considerably less, ravin-* ?

Then and Now in the Playing
or Jascha Heifetz
A year ago the young violinist ?virt?
uoso and artist, Jascha lleifet;*., came
out of Russia, and at his first recital;
stirred up memories of the masters of '
the generation that, had passed away by
the nobility and equipoise of his play- ,
ing, by an exhibition of penetrative
intelligence, a sense of the compelling
charm of repose unfolding itself so j
subtly as to leave no thought of tech- !
nica! achievement, an appreciation of |
beauty of tone, tonal nuance, color,;
symmetrical adjustment, of phrase,
impeccable intonation and loveliness of
line, which were an all-sufficient ex?
pression of beauty in the music which]
'he played. Even in tin- compositions
comparatively inconsequential in their ;
musical contents ami obviously de?
signed to display the technical acquire?
ments which please the groundlings be?
cause they amaze them, he preserved
the elements of lofty beauty by avoid?
ing exaggerations and pursuing the
path of conscious capacity. Yesterday;
afternoon, when lie gave a recital in j
Carnegie Hall, lie manifested a deplora- ;
ble disposition to sentimentalize all j
the classical serenity out of the music,;
as if determined to adapt it to the
sensibilities of mushy boarding school
misses. For the honest drawing and :
straightforward sentiment of the ttiti- |
sic, which need to be borne aloft to j
retain the interest of modern music
lovers, the real appreciators of the !
compositor! had to cling to the tran
scription of the orchestral part played
on the pianoforte by Mr. Andre B?noist.
The violin solo was too pretty to be
beautiful. Mr. Heifetz has lost none of
the great skill which showed him to be
a master a year ago, but he seems to be '
in danger of losing some of his great;
ideals. Has he become apprehensive j
lest some of his rivals surpass him in
popularity? He has the elements in;
his art which should lift him above i
such fear. There is nothing to be I
gained by playing down to the level of'
an audidicc crowding Carnegie Hall in :
a time of epidemic, when obvious rea?
sons have compelled his rivals to cancel ;
their engagements. Not always, btit
just now, trie voice of the box office is a
voice of significance. II. K. K.

requiring the depot- virtues of the in?
terpreter of songs, but with the limits
it set. Mr. Berton proved himself more
than adequate. Especially effectively
done wen? Tschaicowsk's "Legende ad
I.e Loir" and the excerpt from De?
bussy's "L'Enfant Prodique." In these
he displayed an unusual drastic, per?
haps rather an operatic, sense.
In the evening Aeolian Hall listened
to the recital of another barytone,
Louis Graveure. Of the art ami voice
of the former Wilfred Douthit little
new can be said. Both are now well
known to the concert world. His voice
is an extraordinary one, especially in
its breath support and the singer's
power of sustaining a note i.? made
the mosit of, sometimes to the distor?
tion of the composer's intention. On
the whole, however, Mr. Graveure is a
sincere artist, who lacks something in
warmth of feeling.
Mr. Gravcure's singing last night
was uneven. Some songs, such as
Dvorak's "Sons, My Mother Taught
Me." he gave with a tine delicacy;
others. like I he same composer's
"Gipsy Garments," with a refreshing
vigor. Ai. other times in his striving
for emotion he resorted to sudden
change.- and vocal exaggerations which
wer? most distressing. These faults
ruined his singing of Chausson's
"L'Aveu" ami Chavagnat's "Mignonne.''

Two m?n to whom time was only an !

around the corner, or whether they

It was almost midnight as the great
clock in the Metropolitan tower pro?
claimed in gleaming figures. Great
office buildings towered about the two
shabby figures on the park bench.
Gloom pervaded the centre of the park.
The night wind shutiled aimlessly
among the trees, discarding leaves with
a lavish hand. Automobiles sped past
in Madison Avenue and Broadway,
passing as a backwater of tho city the.
square which had been the centre of
its night life when Diana ruled alone
among the stars.
. "Nobody stops an' not even a han

awakened to renewed faith in Madison

the clock was again illuminated and
fifty-nine seconds later the two hands
coincided at the hour of midnight.

records of all candidates for County :
Judge in Kings County, has decided to
quoted as saying in a political address |
prot-si: against the election of J. Gral

"Some time igo Mr. McMahon was I
quoted as raying in a political address, :
'Betting, gambling and the social evil j
arc bound to exist, and places of this
kind should be licensed and listed,'"
Mrs. Ormsbee said yesterday. *' No
woman can ever subscribe to that doc
trine. Last summer a man beat, his
ten-year-old hoy with a strap so that
a week later the boy's back was a nues
of bruises. When the Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Children ar?
rested the father and brought him be?
fore Mr. McMahon. a police judge, Mr.
McMahon discharged the father and
reprimanded the society, saying: " The '?
child should have been beaten t? n time?
as hard. If it. were my child I would
have horse-whipped him.'
" Many women with whom I have ;
talked this matter over believe that, |
no matter who is elected Mr. McMahon
should be defeated, and we are going |
to do what we can to accomplish this

Recent Work for Liberty Loan
Sapped Her Waning
WASHINGTON, Oct.#26. Mr?. Ella
Plagg Young, of Chicago, chairman of
the National Woman's Liberty Loa:;
Committee and former supcrinter.den
of Chicago's public schools, died her?
to-day of pneumonia, following a shor*
illness from influenza. When she wa
stricken Mrs. Young had just com?
pleted her work for the fourth loan, to
which she had given all her energy.
It was on a speaking tour for the loan
that her illness was contracted.
Mrs. Young, who was born in Buffab>
seventy-three years ago,*was one of
America's leading educators and th?'
first woman in the country to hold an
important public school post. She was
i superintendent of Chicago's
ic schools in 1909 from a group of
six candidates, the rest of whom were
men educators of national reputation.
In her capacity as superintendent
Mrs. Young fought many bitter battle
with politicians both on and ofl' th?
school board. In July. 1013. she re?
signed, saying, "I can rigbt for a prin
eiple, I can fight for another person.
but I am too old to fight for myself"
She was quickly reinstated by public
clamor, however, only to be ousted fron;
office by the Board of Education in
This? action precipitated a storm of
protest. Lacked by the women of the
city, Mayor Harrison caused the resig
nation of the five members of the
board who had voted against her, and
once more put her fti office. Mrs.
Young was aiso president of the Na
tional Education Association from 1910
to 1911, the first and only woman to
hold that office.
Sex hygiene, enlargement of kinder
garten courses, vocational training an?!
simplification of primary work were
among the reforms inaugurated by the
Mrs. Young got her knowledge or
schools from an experience of almosj
fifty years in teaching. She taught in
Chicago in various public schools, and
later was appointed to teach in the
Department of Education at Chicago
