Reacli Out for Alien Children Help to Americanization Be? hind Plan to Establish Schools Upon Petition by Parents of 25 Lfttle Ones Opens Way Into Homes Educators Believe Adult For? eign Born Will Benefit by Teaching of Offispring The Public Education Association an? nounced yesterday that it has had intro? duced in the Legislature a bill to estab? lish. kindergartens when demanded by petition by the parents of twenty-five or more children. Such a provision in the law, it was said, would be a step in Americanization, as the kindergarten ls considered a fundamentai element ln the absorption of alicns now neg lected in New York and other centers Of immigrant population. "The urgency of reaching our alien adults," says a statement given out by the association, "has ofFered a new angle from which to judge of the value of the kindergarten. Tho institution not only lays a firm foundation for the next generation, but, through parents' meetings and through the system of home visiting it fosters, it opens up ways of reaching fathers and mothers that have almost unlimited possibili ties. It thus becomes a potent factor in solving the most difficult part of tho problem which faces those who are conducting the vast campaign of Ameri? canization through education ? 'How can we reach and win the confidence of immigrant adults?' Americanization Hard to Define "Just what Americanization means preeisely is a question. At best it is a nazy term. To some it means the sing? ing of patriotic songs. To others it means learning to read and write the English language. In a large sense it means the process whereby the strangers within our gates become part of us. It cannot be perfected, solely or primarily, by 'patriotic meetings,' by a few pink-tea calls from one-half of the world to the other half, nor by merely learning English, however es sential that may be as a tool for un derstanding the environment, for ex pressing to others the thoughts and ideals one has already expressed to one's self in one's own language, or for achieving one's legitimate ambition in a land where that is the mother tongue. "It is because of this fact that the kindergarten teacher can render inval uable service in Americanizlng our alien population. A large part of her energy is devoted to establishing per? sonal relationships in the home at a time when tho interest and care of the parents are most closely knit to the welfare of the children. By brmg ing the children of immigrants into the kindergarten 'there is established a sympathetic and cooperative relation ship between the immigrant home and the most potential Americanizing agency among us?the public school. In a new and significant way it is true that'a little child shall lead them!' Few Children Here Enrolled "In New York City, where the prob? lem of the immigrant is peculiarly acute, over 125,000 children between the ages of four and six, or more than 75 per cent of the children of kinder? garten age, are not enrolled in kinder? gartens. "As a step in the direction of solv? ing this problem, the Public Edu? cation Association, in cooperation with other organizations, has intro? duced a bill in the Legislature which provides that, upon petition of the parents or guardians of not less than twenty-five children between tie ages of four and six, rcsiding within the district or city, the Board of Educa? tion shall establish and maintain a kindergarten unless a kindergarten al? ready is maintained in the school named in the petition. Organizations Support Measpre "The organizations behind this bill include the Public Education As? sociation. the State Woman Suffrage party, the State Congress of Mothers and Parent-Teacher Associations, the State Federation of Women's Cluba, the National Kindergarten Association, the State Teachers' Association, the Chamber of Commerce of the State of New York, the State Federation of La? bor, the Women's City Club, and the Women's Municipal League. "The bill has been introduced in the Senate by Senator Charles C. Lock wood, and it is expected that it will be introduced in the ?Assembly in a few days by Colonel Theodore Roosevelt." I -. Spanish Women Plan Congress of Suffragists International Allianre Will Meet in Madrid in May, Says Marquesa del Ter MADRID, Feb.' 22.?The Marquesa del Ter, president of the Union of Spanish Women, said to-dny that ar rangements for a congress of the In? ternational Woman Su.Fra_;e Alliance in-Madrid, next May, were progressing despite difficulties. She said she knew nothing of reports that the con? gress was to be abandoned. The marquesa declared the feminist movement had f<mnd svmpathizers among every class of Spanish society, with the possible exception of the Clericals, whose leaders stronHy op pese any effort at the emancipalion of women, especially in a political sense.

Blanchard A New York that has been so reeently at the mereles of the Weather Bureau and the Street Cleaning Department Bhould be interested in "The River's End," the feature picture at the Strand this week, for the scenes are laid in the great white north. But the picture has much more to lt than lies in its temporary appeal to, recently be leaguered picture-goera; for there is told a moving story, rich ln beautiful scenes and well aeted. The flrst scenes of the film, which was adapted from the story by James Oliver Curwood, show John Keith, hunted for several years for the mur? der of Judge Kirkstone, a victim of the long arm of the Canadian Mounted Police, through the efforts of Derwent Connlston. But on the long trip back from the far north .with his prtsoner Connlston is stricken with disease and it is then, when Keith refuses to leave the sick man to save his own life, that frtendship comes between the two men who were hunter and hunted. In a log cabin in that frozen country Keith watches over Connlston, and when the latter grows certain that he is to die he suggests, because of a remarkable resemblance between them, that Keith take his name at his death and return to the post. Keith is carefully coached for the part he is to play, and when Conniston dies the hunted man turns south with a new name. At the post of the Mounted Police, Keith reports under his assumed name the death of himself, and passes suc cesafully the scrutiny of his new sister, Mary Conniston, and McDowell, of the Mounted Police, neither of whom had Been Conniston for more than three years. But Shan Tung, a wily Oriental attached to the DOBt becauae of his uncanny memory for faces, had seen Keith at the time of the Kirkstone murder, and was not deceived. From this point complications come thick and fast: Shan Tung is madly in love with Miriam Kirkstone, the daughter of the murdered man, and has already a secret with which to menace her, for he and she alone know that it was Peter Kirkstone, and not Keith, who killed Judge Kirkstone. With this secret he forces the girl nearly to the point of surrender, but ho goes too far, for when he threatens to disclose Keith's identity unless the masquerader aids in the plans against Miriam Keith defles him. Hard upon the heels of the defiance, comes a fight in which Shan Tung is killed and Keith lays some dozen Chinamen low; ,the building catches fire, and Miriam's brother dies from burns just after he hae confessed to the murder of his father. Miriam and McDowell come to un? derstand each other very well then, and at "the river's end" Keith and Mary Josephine, his erstwhile sister, meet ln a new and ever old relation. Mary Josephine, let it be said, in the person of Marjorie Daw has very in genuous and irresistible interpretion, and Lewis Stone gave dignity and strength to the part of John Keith. In addition to this exceptionally good feature picture, there are the usual topical and musical numbers on the bill,,as well as a comedy, "Monkey Rhincs." Of the musical numbers the overture depicting the gradual evolu tion of Yankee Doodle from the Pil grims' day to our own is fairiy inter esting. ? The bill at the Capitol this weelcde serves very slight recommendation, and that slight recommendation comes be? cause of certain partially redeeming features of the feature film, "The For bidden Woman," in which Clara Kim ball Young gives moments of pleasure, but which fails at the end to bring any great amount of satisfaction as a whole. In this picture, which begins with a promise of a vision of Parisian night life (than which, oh, sagel there is no greater vision), brings Clara Kimball Young to us as Diane Sorel, a noted Parisian actress. She is noted and brilliant and beautiful, but she ia singularly free from all worldly knowl edge, for when she learns from Edward Harding, a playwright and producer, who is old enough to pretend to play the benevolent uncle, that Andrew de Clermont, with whom she has dined for three nights in auccegsion, is mar? ried, Diane dismissed this auitor ab ruptly. The dieraissal comes so ab ruptly to poor de Clermont that he makes it the occasion of committing hari-kari in his loved one's boudoir. Diane, being an actress, is naturally torn to pieces by the pubiicity that folloW3 this last devotional act of her lover, and flies to America with Ed? ward Harding for rest and an attack upon the Broadway stage. At her first stop in America she finds Malcolm Kent, an author, who has crawled into the wilderness near Montclair with only his books and his dogs to produce masterpieces. Kent rapidly losea in? terest in masterpieces on paper as he sces more of this masterpiece of a sis? ter art, and the end of the-picture is almost in sight when Diane carelessly starts investigating Kent's collection of photographs, and finds one "of his sister, whom coincidence discovers to be Mme. de Clermont, the wife of the suicide. Thereupon explanations which are misunderstood and misunderstandings which are not explained thrcaten the course of true love, until Mme. de Clermont arrives providentially from France and tells her very righteous brother that Diane repulsed the ad vnnces of the lamented de Clermont. Then you know the rest; J?.cnt and Diane meet on a convenient spot within eyo shot of Edward Harding, who can stand in the open window and play the benevolent uncle to the death. As we have said, there are redeem? ing features: There is a very wonder ful dog and there are scenes of real beauty and there are moments when Clara Kimball Young acts with power and beauty. In the terse manner of the ancient oracles, we would advise her to avoid the profile, except for purposes of kisslng. It was presumably from the very lofty motive of bringing art to large numbers that the management of the Capitol produced Mascagni'a one-act melodrama, "Cavalleria Rusticana," but if this performance could be pre vented by judicial injunction it would be a still more lofty act. The program speaks yi "an English version" by Nathan Haskell Dole of the book of the opera, but it was evi dent that all the members of the com? pany could not be brought to give their approval to this version. The result was the amuslng one of bilingual opera. We preferred on the whole the old fashloned members of the east who stayed by the Italian, for out of the wWOthat could be comprehended of the English sung close to all was banal and uninspirlng. And in such a wedding of two arts grand opera should be at its best; the elimination of both good acting and good slnging is likely to be fatal to all good results. Th? poverty of all talent on the the atage allowed us to glean very little pleasure from the music, which is under ordinary circumatances very much worth while. If the attempt had !??n i??^faee1 by an ?*pla??tioa that this bilingual grand opera had been given as oil of harmony upon the troubled waters of the Fiume question we would have borne much in our pa tnotism. But in the name of art there is more milk and honey in one drop of the gifted eyellds of Clara Kimball Young than in all the chlldish "uproar" All Hohenzollern Pictures Barred LONDON, Feb. 22.?-A Berlin wireless message saya the Prus sian Home Minister has ordered that all pictures of the Hohenzol? lern family and the insignia of the monarchy be removed from government buildings open to the public. He has suggested that the municipalities follow suit. that the novel performance ln Anglo Italian was able to glve us. A mildly lnterestlng detective film, built upon one of the eplsodes in the Jife of William J. Flynn, entitled "The Silkleas Banknote," and topical and musical numbers complete the bill at the Capitol, which is, in our opinion, a weak one, all in all. Y. W. C A. WiU Continue Helping Girl Workers Report Shows Need of Housing and Educational Assistance in Industrial Centers In the third Installment of the re? port of the war-time activities of the Young Women's Christian Association, which was made public yesterday, lt is announced that assistance to girl work? ers in solving housing probleAis and in finding recreation will be given by the association for an indefinite period. The safeguarding of health and1 the maintenance of morale of girls in In? dustrial . centers have become part of the reconstruction program. Six new centers recently have been opened in isolated reglons where spe? cial industrial problems for women must be met?in mill villages of the South, mining towna of Ohio and West Virginia and among canning and fish packing industries of the Pacific Coast. Service centers have been opened in eight cities with large industrial popu lations. In the last flfteon months 300,000 girls have enrolled in these cities as members of industrial clubs, or have been asaisted in housing, cafe teria service, education and recreation. Particular attention is being given to the women's housing problem in Wash? ington, where during the war 100,000 women were employed. The number has already increased to 103,000 and seems likely to be 125,000 before the year is over because of the additional force required for the census. A large recreation building and a hotel for 400 girls are planned. -?- ? Firemen Mourn at Smoker Riverview Manor Company Sings to John Barleycorn Late bulletins received last night from Hastings-on-Hudson reported to a breathless world that the annual smoker of the Riverview Manor Hose Company, known as the Milllonaire Fire Company, was practically over, and that physicians considered the dan? ger of wood alcohol poisoning slight. The smoker began Saturday evening, and by last night seemed to be entirely under control. The festivities were held in the meeting room of the fire company, which was draped in black, and bore across one wall the inscrip tion, "We mourn our loss!" They were opened by the slnging of "John Barley corn's Body Lips Mouldering in the Grave" by the entire company, or those of its members who could choke back their sobs. Details concerning what followed are scarce, but The Tribune's correspond? ent assured lt last night that "Bert Harvey, the sweet-volced singer, enter? tained the boys royally." and that "the party broke up at a late hour and a good time was had by all." -. t Legion Honors Washington Posta Co-operate in Distribution of French Certificates I^DIANAPqLIS, Feb. z2.?A nation wide celebration of Washington's birth? day waa conducted by American Legion poats throughout the country to-day in connection with the diatribution to the next of kin of American soldiers and sailors who died ln the war of over 100,000 French war memorial cer? tificates; ExerciseB held in connection with the bestowal of these certificates of honor and esteeem on the part of thn French peopie tncluded addreases by mayors, local clergymen and other promlnent citizens.

American Day Parades May 1 Indorsed by Many Governors Indorsement of the National Security League's plan for "American Day" pa? rades May 1, are pouring in every day, it was said yesterday at the New York headquarters of the league. Governors of various states have written to the league expressing approval of tho plan. *t.The u D?r*des wlU be organized through the participation of persons of all classeB and will be headed by posts of the American Legion.

Hitchcock. It urges "the immediate ratification of the peace treaty and the adoption of the league of nations in its present form on the ground that the adoption of the treaty and league involves fundamental doctrlnes and basic prin? ciples which are immeasurably greater than ?ny .man or party as their pur? pose ls to suppress war, malntain peace and save human life." Warns Public Must Pay Any Increase Granted to Miners Representative of National Gas and Electric Service Asserts Raise for Utilities Means Boost to Consumer From The-Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Peb. 22.?The Bi tuminous Coal Commission appointed by the President to adjust the differ ences between the coal miners and the operators will soon decide whether in creases in wages granted the miners shall be passed on to the consumers. The commission during its weeks of hearings has gone into tho question thoroughly, but Chairman Robinson said to-day the commission has not as yet arrived at an adjustment that will be satisfactory. ? While the commission has not indi cated that there is to be any advance in wages beyond the 14 per cent given the miners in December, or even that the 14 per cent advance is to remain, coal operators have insisted that, even if the 14 per cent advance stands, some? thing must be done to enable them to meet it. Briefs filed with the commission by representatives of public utilities cor? porations in the Middle West and East emphasize the point that the "general understanding" has been that the 14 per cent advance was to have been en? tirely absorbed by tho operators, so that no rise in the price of coal, due to the increase in miners' wages, would fall upon the public. Public Will Have to Pay George W. Elliott, of Washington, D. C, repreaenting the National Com? mittee on Gas and Electric Service, has stressed the point that if thero is any increase in wages, resulting in a higher price in coal to utilities cor? porations, the public will have to pay for it. In their arguments before the com? mission the public utilities represen? tatives from New York, Boston, Phila? delphia and Indianapolis have atated that investigation developa that the 14 per cent wage advance has been passed on to the public by the coal op? erators on contracts entered into be? fore the strike, which began November 1. These contracts carried a provi? sion, he explained, that any increase in the cost of labor would be met by an increase in the price of coal. Approximately 8fi per cent of the coal output since the 14 per cent ad? vance went into effect, Mr. Elliott said, had been sold under these contracts, the price being increased to cover it. Only on the remaining 15 per cent of the coal consumed, he said, was the 14 per cent absorbed by the operators. Car Shortage Hinders Output The problem of the inability of coal operators to get an adequate supply of cars by which coal can be run to the markets has become another serioua point of inquiry by the commission. Failure of the operators to get cnough cars to ship coal has been argued by the operators as being one of the po tent factors in the high cost of pro? duction of coal. While obliged to run the mines and keep up with the public demand for coal, the operators have pointed out that this necessitates keep? ing heavy forces at work, and large quantitles of coal have been banked up at the mines with no way to get them to the public. Through flgures submitted by op? erators ropresenting the central com petitive field, which embraces two thirds of the bituminouB industry, it haa been shown that the full-time output of the mines has suffered great ly on account of car shortage. ? ? Dr. Grant's Forum, Critics Denounced by La Guardia Better if More Had Pastor's Broad-Mindedness, Acting Mayor Says F. H. La Guardia, President of the Board of Aldermen and acting Mayor, attended the public forum of the Church of the Aacension last night and after Norman Hapgood, the speaker of the evening, had finished was invited to speak. He accepted and critized boldly those who objected to the rad ical viewa expressed at some of the ses sions of the forum. "To my mind," he said, "if more peo? ple had tho broad-mindedness of Dr. Grant we would all get to know each other much better. We cannot solve our problems if we keep apart and in stigate hatred. "I don't see any danger threatening our government. Wo do not all a;_ree, and it ia good that it is so, but we never are going to get anywhere if we keep stirrinp; up racial hatred as they are doing in Albany to-day." It could not be learned whether the name of the acting Mayor had been submitted to Bishop Burch in accord ance with the stipulations drawn up regarding the forum when it was a question whether the institution would survivo the criticisms leveled against it. Apparently his presence and re marks were unexpected. Mr. Hapgood attacked Senator Lodge for his opposition to the treaty, and said he and those who agreed with him "have taken special refuge in Amer icanism." N-?? Big 4 Hand-Picked, He Says Bennett Assails' State Conven? tion for Ignoring Women William M. Bennett, former state Senator, who recently declared himself for Hiram Johnson for Republican candidate for President and who is candidate for delegate-at-large to the Republican National Convention, is? sued a statement yesterday attacking the manner in which the "informal convention" of the party in Carnegie Hall had been handled. He charged that the four nomina tions for delegates-at-large indorsod at that convention had been hand-picked by the party leaders, and laid special stress that women were not represent? ed among them or their alternates. "The woman voters have been trifled with," he asserted, "and the direct primary law has been flouted. Every one has been deceived except the pub? lic, and the public will be heard from at the primary on April 6." I-? Pastor Deelares Religion Is Losing Hold on Peopfe The Rev. Joseph Fort Newton told the congregation of the Church of the Divine Paternlty, Central Park West and Nlnety-sixth Street, yesterday that religion was losing its hold upon the people of the United States and hinted that the Bolshevists were at the bot to.m of it. "What is the country coming to?" he asked. "Twenty per cent of the pastors that were with us before the war have resigned to enter other occupations, and of the 110,000,000 people in the United States not more than 44,000,000 attend* services ef any religious de nomination. "What is the reason? Ia it Bolshe? vism ? You know what the Bolshevista did to Russia. Are we coming to the same thing here?"
