Rabbi Silverman Says Error Is!
in Plaeinpr Theology Above
Asserts World Can Ho Rebuilt
on Ten Commandments as
Only Religion.
Rabbi Joseph Silverman finds in re- |
llglon?the religion of the churches?the t
world's greatest failure. Judaism, Chris
tianity, Buddhism, Mohammedanism. (
each has failed in the fulfilment of its |
ideal and its ethical mission <n the world, j
he declared at the Saturday discussion In ?
i the National Republican ?lub yesterday. |
That ideal and mission. Dr. Silverman j
said, is the establishment of the brother- j
j hood of man. "And what do we see to- j
i day," he asked, "but a world at dagger*'
points?nation against nation, race ,
against race, religion against religion? j
| All this after 3,500 years of Judaism,
2,000 of Christianity, 1,500 of Buddhism."
Dr. Silverman rose to speak just after ;
Dr. Robert E. Speer, president of the ,
Federal Council of the Churches of
Christ, had told the audience that re
ligion has been the most successful
force in the world for Justice and truth,
that the churches have carried on the :
best of one generation to the next.
"I dislike to break the spell just cast !
upon you," Dr. Silverman began, "but re- j
ligion has failed in the purpose for j
whioh It was created. Aside from its
failure to realize its ideal, religion has ,
been responsible for some of the worst ;
crimes in history.
"It has failed because men have made
theology dominate instead of ethical prin
ciples. Religious leaders have based
ths salvation of a man's soul not on
the purity of. his soul but upon his '
beliefs. Sectarianism- is the causc of the !
world's disorder to-day, and religion can j
never succeed until a substitute is found
for Sectarianism. Theology id nothing I
but an opinion about God, and no one ;
knows andthing about Go,d. Ptrhaps |
some day some philosopher or scientist !
"There is a substitute for sectarianism,
and that is liberalism?of thought, feeU
ing and action. Every man must be left
alone to think of Cod as he pleases and
to pray to Him as he will.
"The Ten Commandment*) are the only
religion necessary to this world. With
them we can rebuild it"
The subject of the luncheon discussion
was: "Is the church fulfilling its mis
sion of Influence upon the moral and
social conditions of the people?" Others
who spolte were Thomas F. Woodlock,
chairman of the executive committee of
the Catholic Daymen's League ; Dr. Nehe
miah Boynton, minister of the Clinton
Avenue Congregational Church, Brook
lyn, and Dr. Durant Drake, professor of
philosophy and ethics at Vassar College, i
Seek Repeal of Law Authoriz
ing Continuation School.
Catherine Lange, 17, of Astoria must i
appear before Magistrate James J. Con
way In the Long Island City Police Court
on April 2 to annwer .a charge of falling
to attend the continuation (school In
Ix>ng Island City. A hearing on the
charge was eet for yesterday before
Judge Conway, but was adjourned at,
the request of Herbert A. O'Brien, coun
sel for the girl.
The Big Sipters of Queens, together
with other Influential women, led by
Mrs. Elizabeth Doyle of Jamaica, have
Interested themselves in the cane, be
cause they Insist tho law establishing
the continuation school and providing
a penalty for nnn-attendnnce is work- .
ing a great hardship for her.
The girl and her sister have been the
only support of her widowed mother ajid
her grandmother, both of whom are ill.
The motht r took In washing to help <tot
with household expenses until her liealtn
failed. The older sifter worked and
paid for the tuition of Catherine at a
business school, whore she learned ate- !
nography and typewriting. Then she '
got a position where she was earning
$25 a week.
I'nder tho law as it now stands Cath
crlhe must attend the continuation
school until ?he is a year older, and she
must ftttei.U ifi the daytime. She had
to give i!; her employment, and when
she went to ftohool she was engaged In
doing stenographic work for the princi
pal of the school, for which she received
no compensation. The only support the
family now lias Is /rom the earnings of
the other sister.
The members of the Big Sisters of
Queens are supporting a bill now in the
Legislature providing for ^tho repeal of
the law establishing this school.

Miss Gerardune Ogleby Becomes Queen of the
Borough's Mardi Gras When the 22-Inch Snapper
Partakes of His First Meal After Winter Sleep.
As advertised, the arrival of spring
,on St&ten Inland was signalized yester
day by the feeding of the borough
turtle. The exercises began promptly
at 10 A. M. All roads led to the
Museum of Arts and Sciences in St.
George. They were filled with the
yeomanry of the Island, fntont on cele
brating the Feast of the Turtle, which
Is for them the pageant, fiesta, Mardl
Gras and tournament of springtime.
As t' lr newspaper chronicled on
Thursday, .'a borough turtle went to
; leep on October 28 and awoke last
Monday. Until he wakes the inlanders
go about with mittens'and tippets and
stay snugly Indoors of evenings except
when drawn to the Town Hall by a
bean supper or demonstration of the
phonograph. But when he wakes it
means that the fetters of winter are
busted and lips that were blue turn red
and klssablc.
Yesterday's function was conducted
under the eye of cameras, movie and
still. The turtle was ltfted reverently
from his tank by 13. J. Burns, assistant
keeper. The honor of feeding him was
bestowed by universal consent upon
Many New Features Make l'p
Tiij? Programme at Madison
Square Garden.
The show that lifts the buruen of
years from men grown gray an* weary
'but still carrying a hoy s heart in them,
tho circus, opened Its five w'^ks
gorgeously at Ma.llson Squ.^ Garden

liminary fanfare of trumpets and grand
crash of brass that burst open the broad
doors leading to the mysterious regons
at the back of the Garden and let into
thft arena the grand Introductory page

George Auger, unttl tho very last_ ep
sode of all. tho thundering, four horse
Roman chariot race, Ringiing Brosjuid
JJarnum & Bailey's spread a feast ot
three hours of thrills and fun.
It's the same old circus that comes
tverv spring to mako ono forget how
disagreeable winter w?n and to show
hew much fun it Is to bo alive, and yet
it Is miich more, for with every added
reason ther* are elaborate new features
that woultl have Phineas T. Barnum
shake his head wl$.h amazement. The
circus never stands still. It Is always
absorbing. Some years it is more fas
cinating than In other years. This Is
one of the times.
Besides all the old attractions that
have been dear to clreusgoers for half
a centun, and the many new feature*
and acts that have been added from
season to season, the Rlngllngs present
at least four brand new exhibits this
year that would be hard to beat.
The cirrus begins with three sets of
savage beasts performing simultaneously
In steel barred arenas under whip and
prong, leopards, lions and polar bears:
centres then upon seven Bengal tigers
that are flicked Into a housecat's obedi
ence by the slim man who faces their
wicked emerald eyes; turns after much
variety of smooth and graceful aerial
work and arena performance? by les#
dangerous animals to the trained Hun
garian stallions, six Iron grays, six bays
and twelve coal blacks that drill at
the mera command of a trainer's up
raised whip, wheeling and turning In
Intricate evolutions; pifsses on over fa
miliar hut always interesting acts of air
and sawdust to the performing drome
daries and camels, strange, supercilious
creatures, taught to do the tricks that
my lord the elephant is famous for, and
so on through a programme of almost
Infinite variety and Interest.
Probably the new acts that will hold
the attention of clrcusgoers most tensely
are the opening exhibitions of perform
ing leopards. Hons and polar bears, pres
ently followed by the seven tigers and
the Hungarian horses.
The business of introducing the big
cat* and the snow white bears into the
steel arenas is worth seelntr. At the
eastern end of the Garden oval the polar
bears are brought to their barred cage
In small wagons and nre prodded Into
the arena, in the middle the lions on
ter the Garden by means of a tunnel
that runs from the Garden basement,
pass into a long, cagelike approach that
runs from the north e*lt of the building
across the north roadway and connect*
with the mlddlo steel cage. At the west
end th? leopards are introduced In small
wagors hacked against trie doors of
From a short distance even the run
way through which the lions come
bounding la not especially conspicuous
and us the tawny beasts make their
appearance one nets the Impress on
that lions are pronxmeding across tne
sawdust floor a trifle casually.
A young woman, Otga Celeste, blonde,
robust, good looking, works with the
slinking, snarling leopards, lashing them
lightly as they threaten ner with teeth
and claws, and turning her back upon
them with nonchalance that makes on?
catch one s breath. In the middle arena
l'eter Radke sends the llona skipping
from chair to chair or somersaulting
over each other, occasionally disciplin
ing one with the hooked end of a spear.
And in tho east cage Christian Whroder
puts through their tricks six polar beat*
that show plainly how much they Would
like to destroy him. All of these acts
are real thrillers, but tho most strik
Ing of all comes wnen leopards, lions
and polar bears are -removed and seven
striped Bengal tigers stroll Into the
Garden and make thilr way through
the runway Into tho centre steel cage.
It Is rare Indeed that animal men
dare to attempt the training of a single
tiger, hut here are seven, patiently
trained and forced through fear to obey
the sweep of their master's arm.
There nre many features of the circus
worth mentioning. Including the Wild
West riders and rop*rs, little lAUzel,
aerial gymnast, who hkng* head d">wn
from the Garden ceiling and then throws
herself over her own Shoulders so rap
idly that It makes onlookers feel a bit
dir.ay; trained bears, camels, seals,
ponies and dogs; snow white statue
horses and dogs In poses of living stat
uary: Mfflt. Brndna with her thorough
brer! horsM and dogs, and the snowy
doves that hover over alt; the Daven
ports with amusing bareback riding
tricks: tjia Neafords in birdlike flights
an<l swoops high over the rings?many
more, until the performing elephant and
the chariot races at the very end of ths
The new afrange people?it Is not gooa
form to call them freaks?had their
callers before the main circus opened In

comers Is th-j man with the revolving
head and the bear woman. Among the

Miss Gerarduue Ogle5y of the museum's
educational department. She was Queen
of the May. Supplied with a long han
dled pair of tongs and a quarter of a
pound of raw beef, she was told to go
to It
Up to that moment the turtle pre
tended to ' be asleep deep within hlu
shell. But as Queeti Oerardune tonged
a morsel of the meat toward him he
shot out nis head and gulped the food
so violently that he almost wrenched
himself out of the arms of Mr. Burns,
who was holding hint. A few more
snaps and the beef had disappeared.
Long and sincbrely did the happy Island
ers cheer this accomplishment of their
dear hope.
The turtle was then taken for a trial
of strength on the lawrti He wabbled
three steps forward and three back. He
snapped unerringly at sticks placed be
fore him. He took a bite out of Mr.
Uurns's right shoe and acted as if it
felt good to have something at last that
a body could set liis teeth into.
Measuring twenty-two inches from tip
of head to tip of tall when they are ex
I tended simultaneously, he Is the second
largest .snapping turtle foutid in the
neighborhood of New York.

The Reasons for Its Popularity
With Both Men and Women
Comfort that rough roads do not destroy
Control that does not require strength
Ability to cover most miles per day
Safety that is not dependent on skill
Roadability that widens driving range
Tire life that saves worry and expense
Reliability that is not a matter of care
Complete absence of cooling troubles
and ?
20 miles to the gallon of gasoline
12,500 miles to the set of tires
50% slower yearly depreciation

The basis of this performance is the
same today as nineteen years ago?the
sound Franklin principles of light
weight, flexibility and direct air cooling.'
And the demand for the Franklin
has increased as motorists realize it?
advantages. Here is the proof:
During the past three years nearly
as many Franklins were bought as dur
ing the previous sixteen. Bringing the
record up to date:
