" ?"??????????e??i?>?????e?MB?"e?"* Pleads Germany Needs Financial Aid Hertha Krupp von Bohlen She and her husband are the owners and directing heads of the great Krupp works at Essen, Germany. She and Herr von Bohlen advocate long-term loans (thirty to forty years) to Germany as the only -economic and financial solution. of utterance which permitted her hearers to recognize and enjoy the pure melodic line. We are sorry that we cannot say half as much for Miss Braslau, who has always given great pleasure when she has confined her? self to the kind of music for which nature intended and training has fitted her. At the concert of the Philharmonic Society, which took place in Carnegie Hall at the same time, the solo attarc tion was Mr. Percy Grainger, who has of late days given glitter to a number of Mr. Danu-osch's concerts. Mr. Grain ger rode his old warhorse?Tschaikoil' sky's Concerto in B flat minor?and its steel-shod hoofs struck out a shower of sparks in its thunderous course. We do not believe that the splendid instru? ment which he played was malevo? lently disposed toward him, for it re sponded most ingratiatingly when he caressed it in the second movement. So we wonder that he should have fed so fat the grudge that he seemed to bear it. in the. first movement. Why did he so smite it, hip and thigh? Some day we shall suggest to a com? mittee of sympathetic ladies that they make an effort to endow Mr. Grainger with the gigantic piaoforte which was installed in the Altenburg for Liszt some sixty-odd years ago. It might serve his turn, especially if its equip? ment of organ pipes were replaced by megaphones, marimbas and other ex? otic pulsatile instruments from Africa and the Indies. Mr. Grainger thrilled his audience. He always does that,"for we like his drum beat and admire his skill and musicianship. Mr. Stransky's ? orchestral numbers were Rimsky-Kor sakoff's "Scheherazade," some of the processional music from "Parsifal" "Pr?ludes." Mrs. Sherwood Is Made Marchioness by Pope Papal Brief Presented to Glen Cove Charity Worker at Private Ceremony Mrs. James K. 0. Sherwood, of Glen Cove, Long island, identified for many years with Catholic church and chari? table activities, has been made a mar* chioness by Pope Benedict XV, it was \ learned yesterday. The Papal brief, i signed by Cardinal Gasparri, Papal Sec? retary of State, was presented to Mrs. Sherwood a few days ago in a ceremony ! at the Hotel Manhattan. The docu- '? ment, according 10 Mrs. Sherwood, was signed last March. Mrs. Sherwood, who is over seventy , years old, has been one of the man? agers of the Asylum for the Insane at Kings Park, but she said yesterday that her connection with that institu? tion was not the reason for the high ? honor given her. j "It's for my general charitable work," ? was the only comment she would make. From other sources it was learned that the children's charity work of Long Island had enlisted her sympathies and support ever since the time, in 18(58, when she moved from Manhattan, her birthplace, to Glen Cove. The Rev. John G. York acted as dele irate for Bishop Charles E. McDonnell of Brooklyn in presenting the Papal i brief to Mrs. Sherwood. Among those who attended the piosentation cere? mony were the Rev. Louis J. Sloane, Mr. ; and Mrs. F. W. D. Sherwood. Austin Sherwood, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Murphy, Mr. and Mrs. F. F. Loree and Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Chapin. Park Program Planned I State Oflicials to Discuss United Action Here Representatives of all parks and conservation agencies of the state will attend a conference to-morrow at the I offices of the State Reconstruction Com? mission, in the Hall of Records. A plan to coordinate these bodies in car? rying out a state park program will be taken up. John G. Agar, chairman of the execu? tive committee of the commission, and members of its retrenchment commit? tee will meet the conservation leaders. Among those who will attend are George W. Perkins, of the Interstate Park Commission; William White Niles, Madison Grant and Jay Downer, of the Bronx Parkway Commission; George D. Pratt, Conservation Commis? sioner, and Francis Gallatin, chairman of the Park Board. ? K. of C. to Present Medal To Elisabeth Marbury To-night Miss Elisabeth Marbury, who served overseas for the Knights of Columbus, will be presented with a gold medal at the Hotel Commodore to-night by James A. Flaherty, of Philadelphia, supreme knight of the order. It will be in rec? ognition of the reconstruction work in? augurated in Fiance by Miss Marbury. William P. Larkin, K. of C. overseas i director, will give an illustrated lec? ture. The proceeds of the affair will go to the League of Catholic Women. Archbishop Hayes will be chairman. Among the boxholders will be Countess Iselin, Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt jr., Mrs. Michael Gavan, Mrs, Joseph Slevin jr. and Miss Teresa O'Donohue. ABasH.C.ofL.! Shout Artists \ - Quit Garrets and Beans ! to Buy Game-Filled Is/-i ands Off Maine Coast] _ . *i Struggling artists and cartoonists I emerged from their garrets yesterday and gathered at the Hotel Majestic to ? discuss ways and means of combating: the high cost of living. After formu- ? lating a plan to fend off starvation,; they engaged the Majestic press agent! to tell all about it. They are going to buy islands off the Maine roast?an island to an artist? and there immure themselves against the rising prices of pork and beans. The streams and woods of Maine abound in fish and game, and it is the hope of the makers of the comic stripes ? that enliven the daily newspaper pages; that genius, well fed instead of starved, ! will not deteriorate. R. M. Brinkerhoff, Clare Briggs, H. T. Webster and J. N. Darling (Ding) each announced they had already bought an island near Meddybemps. Rube Goldberg, Charles Voight and several others saiil they would follow, suit as soon as they drew next week's | pay. They have formed an organiza- j ? ion and "dubbed it the Meddybemps : Fortification League. Just why they picked on Maine is: not known, unless the press agsnt'a ; hint that the islands were to be de- j clared outside the jurisdiction of the! officials enforcing the eighteenth! amendment is the answer. Maine has | been "dry," theoretically, for fifty! years or more, and it is understood ? the natives are more expert at dodg- I ing prohibition than the natives in j other parts of the country. Charles Dana Gibson has an island! in ?he Meddybemps and it is expected j that 100 or so of the craft will settle! in the vicinity eventually. Those who have already purchased islands threaten to begin inhabiting them in April. Panlist Choristers Are Heard at Hippodrome The Paulist Choristers of New York, Father Finn, conductor, sang at the Hippodrome yesterday afternoon for the benefit of St. Lawrence Hospital. The first part of the program was de? voted to sacred music by Lotti, Pales trina, Morales and others, one of the most effective numbers being Rach? maninoff's "Praise Ye the Lord." The second half was made up of secular music, including a Russian folk song, "Down St. Peter's Road,'' ar? ranged by Kurt Schindler and Tschaik owsky's "Legend." The sweet voice of Master Coates, one of the leading boy sopranos, gave great pleasure in several solo numbers. Master Billy Brobst also sang an aria with equal earnest? ness, but less beauty of tone. John Finnegan, tenor, contributed "Che G?lida Manina" from Puccini's "La Boheme" und several Irish songs.

Verdi's Requiem Stirs Audience At Metropolitan Guillo Setti Directs Chorus With Great Ability; John McCormack, at the Hippo? drome, Captures Hearers Verdi's Requiem Mass has of late years become an annual Sunday night institution at the Metropolitan Opera ! House, and no work given there has j redounded with greater credit to Mr. j Gatti-Casazza. In th? superb chorus j of the Opera House the performance ? of the Mass music has a foundation j which it would be impossible to sur- | pass, and last night that chorus sang ' with a splendid richness and plenitude j of tone, yet with attention to the | slightest nuance of the music. Giulio Setti, who trained them and j who last night directed the whole per? formance, is responsible for tho posi? tion the Metropolitan chorus now holds. It was his guiding spirit which infused the singera. The soloists were Florence Easton, | Mprle Alcock, Charles Hackett and Jose Mardones. The voice and art of Miss Easton, the polished style of Mr. Hackett and the superb tones of Mr. Mardones were all most gratefully ap? preciated, while Miss Alcock, substitut? ing for Miss Gordon, displayed a voice of richness and power and an authori? tative delivery. The audience was large, but it should have been larger. At the Hippodrome John McCormack gave another of his concerts to another of his Gargantaun audiences. Mr. Mc? Cormack deserves his audiences, for ho has done as much, and perhps more, than any other living singer in bring? ing the art of song to a public, a large portion of which, until the Irish tenor arrived, had been utterly oblivious to things which now they hei with pleasure. His programme last night included a recitative and air from Handel's "Solomon," music in which Mr. McCormack is peculiarly at home, a group of Irish folk songs and new songs by Chaussor, Frank Bridge, Wintter Watts and H. J. Burleigh. He was assisted by Winston Wilkin? son, violinist, who played the Wien owski D minor concerto, and a number of shorter pieces. 63d Street Music Hall Has Brilliant Opening Aeons ties of New Auditorium Excellent for Intimate Music; Miss Sebnitzler Is Artist A new concert hall was opened yes? terday afternoon in West Sixty-third Street. It bears the unimaginative and somewhat awkward name, Sixty-third Street Music Hall, but despite this initial handicap it proved to be an au? ditorium in which the acoustics are really hrilliant, and which ought to aid in filling the want for a place where intimate music can be more perfectly enjoyed than it is possible to enjoy it in the great spaces of Carnegie ot even in trie smaller reaches of Aeolian. The new music hall seats 1,100 persons. The honor of opening it was given to Miss Germaine Schnitzler. Miss Schnitzler appeared in a varied pro? gram which included the Beethoven C minor Variations, the Schubert C minor Fantasie, Mozart's Pastorale Vari?e and three Preludes of Chopin. The audience was larp;e and more than friendly in its demonstration of ap? preciation. -??. Eva Gauthier's Recital Does Best in Group of Oriental Songs by Crist There was a small audience at i'va Gauthier's recital at the Greenwich Village Theater last night. But then - Stravinsky's "Cat Songs" were on the program. Those who went, however, discovered that the singer and the three clarinets, which the Russian has prescribed for the accompaniment, are not required to immortalize a spring? time t'P'c. of the backyard. The four little songs are only lullabies with a fantastic accompaniment, intended to i lull children to sleep with intimate ! pictures of feline household activities. Clever Miss Gauthier had many other novelties on her program?a group of i Spanish folk songs, another of songs by modern Spanish composers, an air 1 from Ravel's comic opera, "L'Heure ! Espagnole," which was sung in London last summer, and four songs by modern ! French composers?de Severac, Keoch | lin, Dupont and Chabrier. Rather the I most enjoyable feature of the evening, ! however, was a group of Chinese and Japanese songs by Bainbridge Crist, based on original themes and words. Miss Gauthier sang with her usual in ; telligence throughout the program, but I her most sympathetic work was done in ; the Crist songs. On the Screen "Everywoman," at the Rivoli, a Gorgeous Spectacle, but Lacks Sentimentality The screening of "Everywoman" may safely'be reckoned among the more elaborate achievements in moving pic? tures. It was presented at the Rivoli Theater yesterday with fine orchestra? tion and an effective setting. There is a "sumptuousness about the whole pro? duction that, is cloying in spots, and there is much moralizing, which was | to bo expected, as the screen version j adheres closely to Walter Browne's j story. But the fact remains that the ] moral of "Everywoman," however one | feels about it, is more convincingly j forced home in the Lasky production than it is on the stage. The picture is cast in a large mold, ! Every woman who sees it will revol in | the lovely gowns and the luxurious ? pictorial effects. It is gilded to a , ault. The story sometimes is iost be? cause of the emphasis on setting. The ; riotous banquet scene where Every? woman is at the crest of her folly is ' one of the most pretentious things of the kind that has been attempted in pic- j tures. Other scenes that stand out are the | casting aside of "Modesty," the snow swept street on New Year's Eve and the final reunion of Everywoman and : Truth. All the laurels do not go to Violet Homing, who plays the part of Every woman, although she does fine work. She has a large supporting cast of stars, and the picture is the kind that affords a number of people an op : portunity to bo more than mere pup i pets. At first when Youth, Beauty and : j Modesty still remain with her, her i performance is altogether too honeyed. But as her search for Love through avenues of Wealth, Passion and Gam? bling proves futile and het> hand maidens leave her, she gains in dra . matic force until in the final scene she does distinctive and vigorous work. Monte Blue is Love, but he fails to give the right impression of nobility. In fact, he appears to be nothing more than a good-looking, rather furtive ; young ^physician who clings to his mother's apron strings. She- happens . to be Truth. The part is taken by i j Edyth Chapman. Theodore Roberts, chewing his cigar | as usual, is Wealth, and he makes a rather loo entertaining villain. Irving Cumming8 takes tho r?le of Passion and makes a good job of it. Clara Horton, Wanda Hawley and Margaret . Loomis are charming as Youth, Beauty : and Modesty, and Mildred Reardon ' makes Conscience more attractive than it is in real life. Bebe Dahiels is dashing as Vice. James Neill make a I colorless Nobody. The picture is more of a spectacle j j than anything els?. There ?3 not a ! hint of laughter anywhere; nor \a[ ! there the kind of sentimental sad ! ness that makes susceptible, theater goers weep. But it is tryingly insist- > eut on the futility of everything in life ; but Lovu allied to Truth. Frank Crane has written a new pro- ' logue for the play. Henry Mortimer recites it impressively, ending up with: I "0 Woman Soul, look! In this pic? ture you will see yourself. "And well for you if you shall also see that underneath the wonderful stars, and in all this wonderful earth, there is nothing so wonderful as Love, when Love's other name is Truth." Will M. Ri?hey prepared tb scenario and George Melford directed tb? pro j duction of "Everywoman." Frederick Stahlberg and Jo. - ? Lit tau conduct the orchestra in the pvo 'ogue to "Iris." Professor Firmin Swinnen plays the "Chant Seraphique" on the organ. It probably would have been worth the price of a long railroad trip, even in these days of high prices, to have watched the efforts of the director of "Toby's Bow" to keep from adding a few real reel "punches" when Tom Moore was being filmed in ttte screen ? version of John Tainter Foote'* little j play, which is* at the Strand this I week. That the director kept himself i in leash fairly well and only permitted one little rough-and-tumble fight to ! mar the serenity of the comedy speaks i much for his will power. But the : mental battle, he went through is ? plainly in evidence all through the 1 film. "Toby's Bow." as a spoken play, de? pended more on its clever lines than 1 situations to attract, and it is the lack ! of these situations that proves the I greatest drawback in the screen ver ' sion. True, there is a chance for "at I mosphere" in the Greenwich Village scenes and chances for excellent photography in the exteriors of an old j Virginia estate, but it ends there. The story is simple and gives neither star nor cast a chance to do anything be? yond the conventional in the conven? tional way. The story in brief is that of a suc? cessful author who becomes mentally jacled by too close application to the life in "Tho Village." He goes south to recuperate and falls in love with a Southern girl who is striving to recoup the family fortunes by her pen, or rather her typewriter. Together they write a book which promises to become one of the "best seller" variety. When the girl learns her co-author is already a well-known writer and the success of the book is due to his work, rather than her own efforts, Southern pride comes to the fore and threatens to i?R THE TALLY-HO MURRAY HILL. 632* SO EAST 34 ST?KET LUNCH iOc an DI? $1.00 ?

It threatens for i about 500 feet ?f perfectly good cellu- ! loid, and then there is the final "close I up" and the audience waits for the Cnnplin comedy to start. Nick Cogloy as "Toby," the old r-.sgro servant, who has a special bow for the "family" and another for outsiders, does the only bit of distinctive work in the entire cast, although Mr. Moore, Doris Pawn, Mncey Harlan and the : others are acceptable in drab parts, for ' which they cannot be blamed. Chaplin's "A Day of Pleasure" is re? peated again this week. The musical program includes solos by Jack Mack Intosh and Amanda Brown and Liszt's '. "Les Preludes." There have been more effective pic- | tures of circus life than "JiJnx," shown at the Capitol Theatre this week. \ Mabel Normand, however, makes the most of the possibilities of a distinctly senseless plot. It is all tiresomely far? fetched, and the right people seem to turn up at the right moment and where they are needed, as they rarely do in real life. But Mabel Normand and Cullen Landis as Slicker the Wild Man make a delightful pair of young irresponsibles, and redeem to some ex? tent the many inconsistencies of the story. / Jinx is the circus orphan, abused and batted around from pillar to post. Only ?ho Wild Man is kind to her. Then the great day comes when Rory Bory Alice, the most successful per? former of the troupe, is called on for her "Dance of the Northern Lights" to impress two prospective buyers of the show. Through a lie told by Jinx, Rory Bory Alice has disappeared, so, the culprit decks herself out in the voluminous robes necessary for the part and tries to make amends. She gets wildly entangled on her platform and ends by falling headlong down on the astonished buyers standing below, She runs away and finally reaches an orphanage. One of the really delight? ful parts of the picture is where she puts on an amateur circus performance for the children of the orphanage, util? izing all the animals on the farm. The Wild Man turns up opportunely to add tb the general gayety, and after sundry mishaps Jinx and the WTild Man decide to marry. There is much to laugh at in this picture, and Mabel Normand is irresistibly funny. The color motion picture photog? raphy which has become a regular feat? ure at the Capitol is unusually exten? sive this week. Both the Prizma pic? ture and the adventure scenic are made in nature's tones, lly Mayer's travelaugh "Such Is Life on the East Side," is the equivalent of a personal visit to that part of New York. Ned Wayburn's demi-tasse revue is presented this week for the last time. Pryor's Band closes its engagement the following week. There is no chance to stop laughing at the Rialto this week, four pictures, each representing a different school of motion picture comedy, making up the pre-Christmas bill. Billie Burke.is enabled to display all her charms as a character actress in "Wanted, A Husband," from the story by Samuel Hopkins Adams. As Amanda Darcy Cole, the unwanted bachelormaid, she is a frowsy little frump with the posture of a camel and the gait of a duck. Later, through physical culture training and her friend Gloria Green, acted by Margaret Finden, she becomes a different creature, so different and so beautiful that she is scarcely recognized by her friends. Taunted by her two girl friends who are to be married, Darcy invents an Fnglish suitor for herself with a name gleaned from "Burke's Peerage." After many amusing incidents, James L. Crane, as Jack Remscn, appears as a stage-make-up Englishman and is in? veigled into honeymooning with Darcy. the husbandldss bride. Darcy is not aware of his .identity until he'is Strip? ped of his make-up by an irate and romantic housekeeper at the bungalow where the two real couples and the pseudo couple are honeymooning. She recognizes him as Jack Remsen and he remembers her as Darcy, the former frump. He offers her the opportunity for a real honeymoon and ?she accepts. Others in the cast are Charles Lane, Edward Lester, Bradley Barker, Helen Greene, Gypsy O'Brien and Kid Broad. The other comedies are "A Lady's Tailor," a fast-moving, riotous slap? stick Mack Sennett farce; Charlie Chaplin in a revival of "The Vagabond" and a Mutt and Jeff comedy. Included in the music program are selections by the Rialto Male Quar? tette, a violin solo by Sasha Fidel man, concertmaster of the orchestra, and Franz Suppe's "Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna" overture, played by the Rialto orchestra. Maria Grever Sings Emotional Program at Princess Theater Maria Grever, soprano, sang an emotional program of Italian, French and Spanish songs at the Princess Theater last evening. The feverish mood of the opening song, Tirindelli's : "Amare, Soffrire"?"without your love I shall die of love' -was maintained throughout the evening, and there were evidences that the singer's tempera? ment is greater than her present powers of expression. Her voice was not well controlled, and in her moments of greatest intensity the tones were spread. Miss Grever needs more ? technique and less emotion.
