"Mr. Avery was such a generous giver
to public Institutions that It Is some
thing of a surprise to all except his
personal friends to find that he had not
liven all and that there remains still
another public benefaction In the shape
of his fine library for the sale of such

field of the art of collecting without
adorning It with rare "finds, for he was
a genuine collector. "Ills acquisitions."
says Mr. W'eltenkampf, "were not based'
on the facile persuasiveness of the ple
thoric pocket book. In fact he was apt to
be ahead of the game, as when he was
one of the first to collect Whistler's prints,
or when he was picking up Daublgnys
etchings on the quays of Paris at a
couple of francs apiece." The friendly
relations he was able to assume with
artists In his years as a picture dealer
also greatly aided him, and from the tips
given to him by them and from the
correspondence he maintained with some
of the most celebrated among them re
sulted a moss of "association material,"
notes, clippings, drawings, &c, that gave
a piquant value to many items.
His books, therefore, nuke an appeal
In several directions. There are books
of great Interest to- bibliophiles, such as
Oroller's copy of Olcero; Sturt'B Book
( Common rrayer; a specimen of
Clovls Eve's binding; the famous
Hypnerotomachla Pollphl'l" of the Al
dlne Press; an Aldus that was once
owned by Oroller; and a book by Wyn
kyn de Worde. There nre works from
the libraries of royalties and presidents,
some of them from Mount Vernon bear
ing the bookplate and adtoprnph of
George Washington; and there are, nat
urally, many rare volumes that have a
direct bearing on art. The bindings In

Meunler, Louis Hague, Pagnant and
The "Description of I the Villa of
Strawberry Kill" Is Horace Walpole's
own copy, with his explanatory notes In
addition. Mr. Avery also secured the
first edition of the first work printed on
Horace' Walpole's press the "Odes" of
Thomas Gray. Hale's "Golden He
mains" was owned by Iraak Walton
and has an Inscription by him upon tho
title page. Washington lrvlng"s "His

copy to Mrs. Thomas Moore ; and' the
"Fleur du Mai" hns the addition of two
letters from Baudelaire, two from
Champfleury, and one from Bracque

for the book.

Mme. Helen Stanley and Mist
Ruth Ray Sing and Play,
Two recitals took place yesterday In
Carnegie Hall. . Itl the afternoon Mme.
Helen Stanley gave a song rscltal which
was an artistic success. Her lovely
voice was generally used with uncom- ,
mon skill and In a varied list of selec t
tlona she showed knowledge of style,
a clenr diction- and dramatto power
with tender feeling.
Included' In her list were three new
songs entitled "Trlptjque," by Hue,
which she gave with an admirable
understanding of mood. Wldor's "Con
templation1' was especially welt sung
and was repeated. To her French
group nhe added as an encore Debussy's
"Beau Solr." -
In the evening Ruth Bay, n Chicago
violinist, a pupil of Auer, gave her first
recital here. Miss Ray made her debut
in her home city In 1904 at the age of (
years. Last night her performance made
a distinctly pleasing Impression, In her
chief numbers, the G minor sonata of
Tartlni and Lalo's "Symphonic Espag
nolo," ahe disclosed an admirably
schooled' violin technic and much taste.
Her tone Is not large, and especially In
rapid passages It lacks musical quality,
but In Intonation It was always true.
Her bowing was good and her rhythm
adequate. Her playing was noteworthy
for accuracy and her general style
showed much ease and Intelligence,
though there was some lack of breadth
and brilliance. She Is evidently a serious
young nrtlst and ought to go far In her'
Offers Greatest Company of
Stars Ever Heard in Cham
ber Music in Now York.
The youngest musical fraternity of
this city made 'Its bow to the public at
a concert given In Aeolian Hall last
evening. The title of this body Is the
Beethoven Association and Ita member
ship list challenges the eye with an
Imposing array of eminent names. For
his Is an assembly of musicians, banded
together for the inspiring purpose of
presenting the best in the field of their
art with players and singers whom no
manager could wisely undertake to bring
forward In a single concert. But these
stars give their services without price,
and tho profits of their concerts will go
to aid needy musicians. '
The members Include Frits Krelsler,
Pablo Casals, Eugene Tsaye, Jacques
Thtbaud, Harold Bauer, Osslp Gabrtlo
wltich, Rudolf Ganx, Fannie Bloomfleld
Zelsler, Mlscha Elman, Olga Samaroft,
the Flonzaley Quartet, the Letz quartet,
L "O.d Uodo suy. Wl Inm M .eke,
Louis Svecenskl, George Hamlin and
John McCormack. Associate member
ship Includes the conductors of this city,
Boston. Philadelphia and Chicago.
Last evening's prog, ammo served to
disclose some of the possibilities of tho
new activity. The works were all from
tho repertory of Beethoven. The In
strumental numbers were the B flat
trio, played by Messrs. Bauer, Thlbaud
and Wllleke.l the romance in F major
by Mr. Thlbaud, and the E flat piano
quartet by Messrs. Bauer, Thlbaud,
Svecenskl and Wllleke (the last two
being one-half of the grand old Knelsel
Quartet.) The second and fourth num
bers were vocal, the air "My Heart Is
Sore Within Me." from the Mount of
Olives." and the cantata "Adelaide,"
sung by John McCormack.
Drawbacks of All Star Plan.
When distinguished virtuosi come to
gether for the performance of cham
ber music the results are frequently dis
appointing, and at tlmeti distressing.
Accustomed to being soloists, they for
get to merge their Individualities In the
whole and a conflict of styles and put
poses ensues. Only numerous rehearsals
and the final dominance of one artistic
Ideal can bring about the true ensemble.
Hence there could be no profound as
tonishment because the trio last evening
was not entirely happy. The technical
delivery was good, but Mr. Bauer was
too"-fervent In his treatment of the piano
part. "The outcome was a lack of bal
ance. In the slow movement, however,
this almost disappeared, and' consequent
ly this movement was the most effective
of the four. It was played In am extra
ordinarily beautiful manner.
Mr. Thlbaud's playing of the romance
was one of the most admirable achieve
ments he has put to his credit In New
York. There was an unwonted depth of
tone and feeling In It, while in finish It
was exquisite. Possibly something of
the mood of the previous number had
been communicated' to Mr. Thlbaud's
performance, for It was before the ro
mance that Mr. McCormack sang the
"Mount, of Olives" air,
Differences In McCormack.
Jqhn McCormack making phono
graphic record music for Sunday night
audiences In the Hippodrome and Mr.
McCormack singing Beethoven for an
audience of the inner brotherhood of
music lovers In Aeolian Hall do not
resemble one another greatly except In
physical appearance and In perfect
enunciation of text. The popular tenor's
delivery of the great recitative air last
evening was Inspiring m the breadth
of Its style and the eloquence of Its
paeslonato feel.ng. He was less suc
cesrful with "Adelaide," partly because
the song Is less satisfactory in English
than In German and partly because Its
.sentiment is not wholly congenial to
the nature of this singer.
There were some empty seats In the
hall. There- should not be any at the
next concert, Never before In the his
tory of chamber' music in this city has
such a company of famous musicians
been congregated; Star casta df far less
Importance stretch the walls of the opera
house. It Is probable that the presence
of this new organization has not been
yet sufficiently made known.

Street Colorless Except for
"Stews," Who Wcro More
Plentiful Than Ever.
About the only thing that worrrled
1 Broadway last night was that Will An
derson and the .rest of the Anti-Saloon
League did not see It celebrate election.
It Is entirely likely that there were more
stewed persons on the Great White Way
between' 8 o'clock and midnight than
there have been on any election night
In years. There was1 one source of spec
ulation! Where did they get It?
The crowds were not vast The bulle
tin boards at Thirty-fifth street and In
Longacre Square did not, elicit great
enthusiasm. To be sure, rival candl-
J dates had their partisans present. When
a Bronx district showed its preference
for Moran over La Guard la there were
cheers. If a Manhattan constituency
showed Its preference for Mr. La GUar
dla cries arose. But there was none of
that old Jostle and bustle that .charac
terized election nights of bygone days.
Fakirs sold or tried to sell flshhorns
and germ ridden feather ticklers. Curb
merchants sought to. dispense raise
whiskers and boxes of confetti. Wor
ried looking Individuals assured you that
you couldn't eclebrato the occasion with
out a ratchet rattle or a tlnpan clapper.
But -there was lacking everything except
the chronic drunk who. he alone knows
how, got good and stewed and fared
forth to let Will Anderson and the rest
of the world know that amendments
were nothing In his sophisticated life.
Here and there you encounter a per
son who blew army calls upon a cornet
or a bugle. And ever)' few blocks or so
you'd run across some one who'd poke
a tickler Into your face or whirl a rattle
beneath your nose. For the most part
the perpetrators of these pleasantries
looked, jlke people who might be ex
pec ted to do Just those things. AH,
things considered It' was an utter failure'
as an election night
Theatres Are Crowded.
The theatres were Jammed to the
doors. They were the night before. It
Is probable that they will be to-night.
The cafes were turning folks away.
There's nothing remarkable about that,
these days of excess profits. In the
same connection It may be said that the
Broadway subway was crowded beyond
all endurance.
No, there was something sadly nwry
with last night as an election celebra
tion. Early In the evening the crowds
were sizable. Along Broadway and
along One Hundred and Twenty-fifth
street the cops were prepared for al
most anything. They were stationed
four to the block along the curb. In
the vicinity of bulletin boards they
were kept fairly busy telling folks to
keep moving or to -stand Inside pre
scribed limits.
But save for the Incurable souses who
were oflt In Increased' force and having a
gladsome evening of It nobody seemed
to be really enjoying the evening very
Along Broadway the restaurants were
milking the best of It The Falals
Iloi-l's caburrC was do ng Its best to
mnke folks forget that liquor used to
help a lot Tom Ilaly's show did a
capacity business, and the Cafe de Paris,
the Moulin Rouge, Murray's, Jim Church
Ill's, La Tabarln, the Club de Montmart
and the Little Club wero crowded to their
uttermosts. The big hotels were assur
ing all late comers that their cafes and
restaurants were already overflowing,
and taxlcabs were paying attention to no
one who did not look like double fare
and a 60 per cent t'.p.
.Trytnsr to Have Good Time.
To be brief, New York did Its.dog
gondest to have a good time. It is en
tirely probable that half the crowd
abroad last night would not have drunk
liquor had liquor been dispensed as
freely as pf yore, but there was that
feeling that some one. hod taken the Joy
out of life.
Even the Socialists found that there
was nothing to get excited about The
Socialists got together over on the East
Side and up In East liar Jem ana pre
pared to celebrate the largest Socialist
vote ever cast In New York city, 'iney
rot together: that's about all. The
Jewish Dallv Forward, over on East
Broadway, had Bet up a bulletin board
to record the epoch marking flgurea
Incidentally, this bulletin board was the
only one downtown. For the first time
In a decade Park Row was arid of bul
letin boards. A considerable crowd had
gathered In front of City Hall, where
usually a dally holds forth with movies
and stereoptlcon for the benefit of down
town election crowds. But not lost
Frozen BUI Douglass, the champion
hot coffee drinker of the lower East
Side, declared that It was he worst
night he'd spent la years.
"You don't expect much .most nights,"
said Bill, "but you always look for a
little something election nights. Nevxt
thing we guys will know la that they'll
be declaring Christmas out of bounds
and extendlag the Sullivan law to cover
The East Broadway bulletin board
crowds cheered every time they got a
chance. When It was announced that
CaUrln Coolldge, the. suppressor of the
Boston police strike, had been reelected
Governor of Massachusetts they hooted
to their little hearts' content When It
was announced that Mr, La Guardla
looked to be a certain winner there
was a healthy young riot for there were'
quite a number of Italians present and
blood proved to be thicker than politics.
Mr. La Guardta's possible victory
caused a lad named Welnsteln pain. He
expressed his opinion of the Republican
candidate In fulsome Socialistic measure
Whereupon a swarthy Individual smok
ing a pipe equipped with a nlckelled
cap and who wore corduroy trousers
thrust the blade of a pocket Urtlfc Into
Welnsteln's leg; Welnsteln made' a wild'
outcry and was hustled to Gouverneur
Hospital. The police -couldn't find his
assailant Welnstetn was not seriously
hurt and the hospital authorities sent
him home.

Wealthy Patron Demands tho
Lines Attacking Rich Bo
Cut From Tlay.
The first Bpllt, has occurred In the
Theatre Guild, and It's all because of
John Masefleld's drama, 'The Faith
ful," which that organization Is present
ing at the Garrlck Theatre. It's as
much a matter of economics as of .art
The break has come through the res
ignation from the Guild of Augustln
Duncan and Rollo Peters, bath of whom
nre directors In that body, and have
prominent parts In the current produc
tion. Their resignations from the board
of directors were confirmed by an ofll
clal of the Guild yesterday, and It was
learned they were made as a protest
against the adoption of a certain policy
In connection with "The Faithful."
This play of old Japan was produced
by the Guild a month ago, exactly as
written by Masefleld, and came In for
some criticism because It was presented
in Its entirety. Besides those who ob
jected that lack of cutting hurt the
quality of the play, one of the backers
of the Guild protested on the day after
the opening against portions of tho dia
logue In which the rich were held up t
core for their treatment of the poor.
He pointed out that It was wealthy
persons who had made, possible the ar
tistic successes of the Theatre Gullif
and that such an attack on persons of
fortune was unjustifiable, without Im
proving the merits of the piece.
After a couple of days of discussion
a large number of the directors. It was
reported, were In favor of dropping the
obnoxious passages, i Rollo Peters, who
was the director of the production and
designed the stage settings, opposed this
and registered his disapproval by re
signing. Austin Duncan followed suit.
Lee Slmonson has taken Mr. Petera's
place ns director.
Most of the features that aroused a
controversy have ' been '.lml: 1,
though some remain, since It wns tld
the directors believed It wns too near
the end of the run of the play to per
mit of a thorough house cleaning 'of the
dialogue, Mr. Duncan and Mr. Peters
are still In the cast, though they aro
no longer connected with the Guild,
which has sought to combine, the stand
ards of art with those of the box office.
When the play finlahes'lts run at tho
Garrlck on November 21 Mr. Duncan
will Join a Broadway dramatic produc
tion to be seen here around the begin
ning of next month. Mr. Peters, when
hlsfengagement terminates on November
15, Is planning to go to Europe, and
later Africa.

Third Day of Campaign Marked
by Message of Gratitude
From King f Greece:
Election day crowns at the theatres,
on the streets nnd In the department
l stores helped swell the total of member
ships In the Red Cross roll call for 1920
yesterday. As representatives of nn or
der above party and politics the roll
call workers were successful In obtaining
many thousand of old and new members
near he polling places. While no sub
scription booths were erected In the Im
mediate vicinity of the polls the district
etinvass workers were assigned to obtain
tho hearts and the dollars of the men
and women voters.
Overseas workers were stationed at
the Grand Central and Pennsylvania
stations, where the holiday throngs
stream In and out of the city at all hours
of the day. Under the direction of Miss
Alice L Day the women worked In shifts
at the terminals .until midnight Or
ganizations of service men continued to
volunteer for work at the subscription
desks, and at many of the booths the
khaki and navy blue were prominent
An offer was received by the booth
division from a young working woman
who said that she and her friends would
he glad to do street canvassing If over
coats could be provided, as they did not
have coats that would be warm enough.
At the Great Northern Hotel $500 for
one membership was received from Mrs.
Adelaide H. Monroe. A business man
who was passing through Macy's In a
hurry stopped at the sound of the Chi
nese gong the workers were ringing and
signed a check for $160.
The third day of the campaign wit
nessed the receipt of a telegram from
King Alexander of Greece. Tho mes
sage read: "I wish to express to the
American Red Cross and through It to
the millions of Americans whose gener
osity has made the Red Cross work
possible my sincere thnnks and the deep
gratitude of my people for the great
and noble work It has done In Greece

End Comes While at Work on
New Volume.
Edgar Stanton Maclay, historian, died
In Washington Sunday while at work
on material for an additional volume
of his "History of the Navy of the
United States." The third volume of his
work, which appeared In 1901, aroused
criticism .because of uncomplimentary
references to tho conduct of Rear Ad
mlral Schley at the battle of Santiago
In the Spanish-American war,
Mr, Maclay had been employed for
somo years In the Navy Department
while engaged In collecting his material
from the official records. At the time
tho third volume appeared he was a
special clerk In the Drooklyn navy yard
on civil service appointment President
Roosevelt Ordered his summary dU
missal. Mr, Maclay resigned under pro
test stating that his opinion of Rear
Admiral Schley was based on no preju-,
dices, but had been drawn from the
story given Ip olTlclal reports.
Mr. Maclay was born at Foo Chow,
China, In 18(3, the son of the Rev,
Robert Samuel Maclay, a missionary ol
the Methodist Church. He was edu
cated at Syracuse University, gradual
lng In 11185, after which he spent some
years In Europe studying foreign navKv
and then returned to begin work on hli
chosen literary task. The first two vol
umes of tho "History of the Navy of Un
united States" were adopted as text
books at Annapolis, but the third was
ordered barred.- The objectionable ret
erences to Rear Admiral Schley accused
the Admiral of running from the Span
Ish fleet, and were CQUChed In language
which Mr. Maclay himself said wns tuw

Twenty-five years ago the first, bank installed the L. B.
Card ledger. The list has grown steadily. Today this
master-method of handling active, inactive and savings
accounts is use by banks, large and small, in every section
of the country.
These banks adopted it only after careful investigation
and comparison. They found, as you will find, that no other
ledger can approximate it in speed, in accuracy, in simplicity.
Reference to any account is almost instantaneous. The
cards are easily and quickly handled. The method of guid
ing leads the fingers straight to the right card. The L. B.
Card ledger is especially adaptable to posting by machine;
assuring speed-with-accuracy.
A visit to our sales rooms will show you why the L. B.
Card ledger is making good not only in banks, but in
commercial houses of every class.
