'RED FORUM ENDS; DR. GRANT YIELDS Cburcli of Ascension Rector Agrees to Bar Radicalism From His Meetings, BISHOP APPROVES PLAN Agreement Drawn by Vestry men Limits Programmo to One Speaker Each Sunday. The most sensational controversy that the Episcopal Church of this city has known in many a day camo to an end yesterday, with tho announcement that tho night Itcv. Charles Sumner Burch, Bishop of tho New York Diocese, had approved a plan Submitted to him by the vestrymen of tho Church of the As cension, Fifth avenue and Tenth street, whereby tho Sunday night forum held In that ediftco Is to bo completely purged of "Ited" radicalism. The plan, which has been acceded to by the Itcv. Dr. Percy Stickncy Grant, rector of the parish, Is virtually a sur render by that clergyman to hla ecclesi astical superior. Ills indorsement of it was obtained by the vestrymen only after It had become apparent to tho rec tor that ho could not continue his forum as he had done In Iho past In the face of tho expressed disapproval of the Bishop and In violation of tho church canons. Under the terms of the agreement he will bo at liberty to Invite laymen of prominence to address his Sunday night 4 ' ItlMkst lUuch longer if you Use Ulith it. Your Grocer congregations, ns he lias done in the past, but It will be necessary for him to submit tho namo of each proposed speaker to a committee of the vestry men in advance, and they n turn will bo obliged to submit it to tho Bishop and obtain his license for tho address, The custom of permitting various per sons In tho audle;icu to deliver brief iduresse.i at the conclusion or tho ttilK given by tho principal speaker of the evening Is to ho abandoned, this cus torn was Inaugurated by Dr. Grant, ana lie was bitterly opposed to giving It up, but the privileges extended these speak ers had been abused so outrageously by them on various occasions nnd ao ire. quently had been used for voicing SAYS BOLSHEVIST FIRES WILL SWEEP ALL EUROPE Continued All This Week ANNUAL SALE i of Quality Furs OUR ENTIRE STOCK At Greatly Reduced Prices J -furriers 384 Hfth Avenue BET. 35TH & 36TH STS.

"V'ou cunuot' deprive a nation of the fruit of its work and then feed it temporarily as an act of philanthropy. The world cannot bo rebuilt in such a way. "A few days ago I received n cablo despatch from James V. Gerard, formerly your Ambassador to Germany. He said that there was some money left from a movement started before America entered tho war and designed to relieve suffering in Germany. He said It now could bo used for the purpose originally intended. 'I suggested that ho buy milk in America and send It to German babies in the name of charity. While the ipeace treaty takes away 1G0.000 German milch cows I It Is all sheer hypocrisy ! "Once there was a Russian who kept bees. He bought a new hive, but made the entry silts so small that the bees could not enter it. Then, when they would not. ami could not. enter tho hive, lie took his knout and struck them, killing many of them. Some of the bees stung him, but none of them went into the hive because the silts were too small for them to pass through. ''So it is with Europe to-day. Germany cannot. live without 'her coal, her food, her raw materials. The only way that civilization and Europe can be redeemed is for America to come quickly with help and with a spirit sho 1ms not yet shown a spirit to help us and to help nil Europe. "And then the Entente must accept us as co-workers In reconstructing the devastated regions on terms which nre feasible and tolerable. Itlght now I do not sec that this help will come." Hcrr von Gwiuncr sbrugpted his shoulders impulsively. j "Do you know Goethe's 'Faust?'" he asked. i " 'That which I receive, that must I faithfully report,' " he quoted. I blasphemy and sedition that tho Bishop would not give, his sanction to any con tlnuance of the policy. ' Another vital pont on which the rec tor has yielded Involves tho prnctlco of permitting persons In the audience to submit written questions for tho sneak ers to answer from tho platform. "Ueds" frequently have worded these questions In such a manner that they "wore able tn got their most violent doctrines read to tho congregation", and the reading of questions relating to anarchistic and I. W. W. principles have been mado tho occasion for demonstrations of approval by radicals In tho pews. In tho future, Dr. Clrant has agreed, tho chairman at the Sunday night meet ings shall not permit tho reading or an swering of any question thnt he consid ers Impropor, nnd this Insidious form of propaganda will ho aono away wun completely. The agreement was drawn by aeorge Gordon Battle. Junior warden of the church, with tho collaboration of Harold A. Content and John W. Cunningham, vestrymen, who acted with him on a special commltteo of threo thnt had been selected to bring about a peaceful set tlement of tho row that had been raging for several weeks past. , Sir. Battle and tho two vestrymen sun mltted It In substanco to Bishop Burch on Friday afternoon nt his residence on Amsterdam avenue, nnu placed it pernre Dr. Grant yesterday morning at a con ference held Jn the rectory of the church. It was then put to a voto of the vestry nnd unanimously approved, Dr. Grant, who had held out persistenly for the old tvno of forum service. Joining with the others In voting for the adoption of the new plan. After this the terms ot the agreement were Incorporated In n letter which Mr. Battle sent to tho Bishop by moclnl mes senger. This letter Kpcclfled "thnt In tho body of the church on Sunday even ings a religious servlcn bo held, such servlco to bo of tho same character as Is now held hoforo the address; that after tho religious service an address be delivered; (ind that after tho address written questions be handed up; it be ing understood that any question con sidered Improper by the chairman shall not be read or Answered by tho spenker; that tjioro shall not bo tho short speeches heretofore had after tho main address, and thnt there ha no meeting held nfter word In, tho parish house." It thcroupon went Into details as to tho selection of tho speakers nnd submission of their names to tho Bishop In advance with tho request thnt ho Issuo a license. He remarked that Thomas It. Chad bourne, In speaking at tho forum a few weeks ago, had stated that If Its exist ence wero ever Imperilled ho would back It with all his resources. 'This would bo n good tlmo for lilm, to come through," tho vestryman remarked. Efforts to In terview Mr. Cliadbourne on tho matter yesterday wero unsuccessful.

And Herbert Spencer says with equal force that the qualities acquired in youth remain unchanged throughout one's life. In harmony with this educational doctrine the House of Collins takes the pioneer step in dressing the miss from the ages of six to -sixteen in correct lines, thus laying the, founda tion for the right lines of the mature figure. That mastery of line which has made Collins otrt in Dress notable for women of two continents has now been applied, wjth equal success, to clothes for children and the smart miss. Every model is original and designed for the individual figure since the miss from six to sixteen has her individuality. She now makes her debut in Collins dress symbolizing the ineffable sweetness of girlhood sculptured in flowing and beau tiful lines.
