In all the niceties of social etiquette.
Thev represent the latest fad and Mr.
i Kurzmah predicts will soon oust the
. pet canary that Newport grand dames
have been carrying tms summer.
"Before leaving, Paris I visited the
i Jenny collection,''' said Mr. Kurzman.
"In spite of the war"' it- was greater
land srrander" than ever. The fashions
;l at the resort Ezains le Bain were of
I the gayest, although the war has un
doubtedly made the styles more sen
: sible. The pigeons came from Lau
' sanne, and before I could take them
away 1 had to make a generous con
tribution to the Church of St.-Francis
'and the municipality, which , Jointly
: control thev new industry."
The itote of simplicity which has
taken the place of the former elabor-
ate styles is the: most startling change
'in Paris fashions, according- to Miss
'Frances Clyne buyer for J, M. Gid
dings Co."' 1
"This simplicity has 'found, vent in
the new military styles now springing
up," said Miss Clyne. "Jeanne Lan-
vin, for. example, has put out many
! original hats and street dresses done
: in the cossaick style,- with, its Puri
i tanical -straightness of line. A typi
; cal dress is one in velveteen trimmed
in tinsel and astrakhan.- The striking
feature of ' this is that it is made of
one piece. ' . ' "' '
"There is an absolute change in the
fashions," she added, "and no doubt
! exists that the high crowned-hat is to
be the hat' of the -season. - With the
high - hat is worn .: the Oriental veil,
which covers the upper, part of the
j face: in front, with its ends trailing
I off to the waist line at the back. ; -v
"High i boots, , high-crowned . hats,
, high skirts, -seem to ibe the cry. With
the short afternoon dresses of net are
worn . large chiffon ; muffs and collars
to match. " The short skirt has even,
become part, of the evening gown, so
that now . high boots matching the
j gown are worn to the opera and for-
mal evening functions." . r.

was probably made "last Friday night
when three tiny boys arrived at the
home of Mr." and Mrs. Joseph Lerner,
of 1589 Prospect place. Three-quar

Now there is a complete Lerner

"Four bt-s, all potential baseball

a pretty godd , record, isn't it?" their
jprpud -mother-asked yesterday. There

the mother smiled and shook her

x "No use," . she admitted; can't
tell them apart, r So I just labelv them
first, second and third basemen. That's
all we can do until, my husband and
1 aecMe what we shall name them." i
-Just then . small Master Nathan,
with all the superior -wisdom of his
18 months, appeared by the babies
bedside. Every' since he was a day
old he had been a predistined short
stop in ihe eyes of his doting parents,
and now . as captain of the three he
showed a very unsportsmanlike jeal
ousy of the attention the wee strang
ers were attracting. - ' '
"He doesn't quite "understand," the
mother explained. "I'm afraid he's
jealous too. But he'll get over, it boon.

So sure was the' mother of the fii-!
ture career "of her i boys that . even
this detail had been a part of .her
dream; plans. Her enthusiasm for the
grea-t national game has made her de
light in her sons doubly keen. She
said yesterday that she hoped they
would all be Giants" some day.
"That will be the year the Giants
have - a real - winning streak." the
mother . announced proudly. ." ;

Rev. Stephen F. Chernitzky, ptistor

Catholics of the Westv End, is the
author of an interesting article on the
conditions of , the Hungarian-A meri
can of Bridgeport, which is published
in this week's editon of Bridgeport,
Hungarian publication. It is a strong
plea for the dissemination of educa
Father Chernitzky's article is en
titled, "What Will Become of Us?
In view of the fact that Bridgeport
has more Hungarian residents than
any other city in America,? in pro
portion to total population, the ar
tide is of especial interest, and by
permission of the editors of "Bridge
port," The Farmer herewith repro
duces it: v"
Bridgeport is the lan-gest Hungarian
city in America. This is not an imag
inary statement. It is an undeniable
fact, easily proven by statistics. Com
paratively speaking, there , are no-,
where as many Hungarians in this
country as right here in Bridgeport-
Let ithose who 'neither know : nor
take thi3 for granted, consider the
following facts taken from the offi
cial censusNjf 1910:
Out of the 4,766,883 inhabitants of
New York, about80,000 are Hungar
ians.' i 'v .'
. Out of the 2,185, 283inhabitants of
Chicago, about 15,000 are Hungar
Out of the 1,549,008 inhabitants of
Philadelphia, about 10,000 are Hun
sarians. ! -
Out of the 560.663 inhabitants of
Clevelend, about 40,000 are Hungar
We may naturally conclude that
there are more Hungarians ' in .the
above cities today. It can therefore
safely be stated, that, in Philadel
phia. one out of every 155 is of Hun
garian descent; in Chicago, one out of
every 145 is or Hungarian aescenw i"
New York, one out of every 59 is of
Hungarian descent; in Cleveland one
out of every 14 is of Hungarian de
Cities with less than 10,000 Hun
garians may not be interested' in the
final aim of .this article.
Up to this date, the inhabitants of
the city pf Bridgeport, total 130,000
or thereabouts. Out of this numb,
genuine Hungarians claim at least
'Consequently. 1 it is but- natural to
say that, here in Bridgeport, one out
of every ten men is Hungarian. There
fore our preliminary statement, ac
cording to which Bridgeport is Amer
ica's largest , Hungarian cenxer, im
plies no exaggeration.
Now,' what follows: . X-
The Hungarians of is this 4 country
have nowhere; else ' more 'ianceilana
hope for material as well as for social
welfare than right here in Bridge
port" In other ; words:'- all the
2,000 Hungarian colonies scattered
throughoit the United-. States, can
justly expect their f ellowcpuntrymen
at Bridgeport to prove their' useful
ness and their intellectual ability -to
the contmunity in which they live.
For a crowd of 13, Od can more easily
show its worth before 117,000, than
if same should be required from 80,-
000 Hungarians in a city like New.
It is true that New York and Cleve
land saw earlier settjers from Hun
gary than the city of Bridgeport. Not
withstanding of this,' it is also ' true
that, in the eyes of the English speak
ing population, from a sympathetica!
standpoint, nowhere else are the Hun
garian co-habitants -cutting as .much
figure as here in Bridgeport. Our
number may be somewhat curtailed,
after the war is over- ..The bulk, how
ever, will remain, j Labor conditions
may become more and more favorable
elsewhere, too.- And yet, it is by no
means a. dream . to opine that, with
in the 'next 50 years, the city of
Bridgeport . will not - suffer want of
work, irrespective of warlike or of
peaceful times, no matter, who will
happen to sit in the presidential
chair. - r
Factories are 'growing here like
mushrooms. Not only the makers of
murderous ammunition, but , several
other industrial concerns also: One
of our leading citizens stated, that in
five years from now, our population
will number 200,000. Twenty- years
hence, this city may surpass half a
And who I. pray,, do constitute the
population of Bridgeport? Only one
half of , them are Americans, as the
term goes. The- other half is com
posed of- immigrants, ' and .of their
firs generation. Let- us name them,
in their numerical order: Genuine
Hungarians (the so-called Magyars),
Italians. Slovaks from Hungary Ger
mans, Poles, Ruthenians from Hun
gary, Lithvanians, Swedes, SloveriV'
ians from Hungary and Greeks. As
far -.as ther number goes, genuine
Hungarians lead the so-called "for
eign" element here. 1
Concerning their - birth rate, farrf
ilies of immigrants are more prolific
than those of Americans. This is an
undeniable 1 fact, sadly admitted by;
the English-speaking races them
selves. The prophecy built upon this
fact, goes to say that, in the near fu
ture, other - than English-speaking
races may numerically outwit the rest
of our cohabitants.
However, only numerically!
Hungarians may retain their num
erical leadership here ' amongst im
migrants. However, everybody knows
that clubs, cities, countries as well as
any other social gathering can never
be ruled by masses, but only by per
sons whose education stands above
the rest of fellow-citzens. The city
of Bridgeport will by no means recog
nize the existence of her Hungarians
unless they are, able to boast of a
sufficiently large number of their
children who have become, thoroughly
familiar with the English, and also
who are honestly able to compete
with the rest of her inhabitants, in
matters industrial, commercial and
intellectual. There is no room in the
heart of a real American for envy or
jealousy. He gives opportunity to
every immigrant. He pays well for
good work. Lavishes 'encouragement
on the more skillful, does not close
the road toward honored positions
before the educated child of an im-
migrant. An upright American never
cares whether one's father happened
to be a Slovak, a German or a Hun-:
garian. All he says is: let the best
J - And yet, it should not be the same
to us, Hungarians. .Our policy ought
to be entirely different from what it
used to be 10, 15 years ago. Had
we seen to it, in years gone by, that
our children, now grown to man
hood, should not satisfy themseleves
with the mere speaking limit of the
English, but, besides, should have
gained college education, there ought
to be here today, some clergymen,
some physicians, some lawyers, some
engineers, some commercial scions
and some city officials, of Hungarian
descent. Isn't our number large? Can
we complain of hard times? Are
there not hundreds and hundreds of
us owning real estate or saving ac
counts? Ask any public school
teacher, they will tell you that most
of the Hungarian children are smart,
are' docile, are obedient. The rest of
this - city as well as the rest of the
American-Hungarians r are therefore,
entitled to justly expect that we
should, at last, shake off indifference
to higher standards, contentment in
menial work, and uncertainty toward
our own future. Far be it from me to
make comparison Between college-
bred children of Hungarian parentage
and those of other immigrants. And
yet we have to admit that quite
,few more children of ours ought to
continue schooling after their 14th
year. , ,
Shoiild we not care ..to understand
and t;o heed this well-meant warning,
nobody else but our own selves will
be to blame, lf, in years from now.
children of other races will.be better
qualified to rule over us. Our own
growing generation would then fully
be justified, to bitterly criticize the
indifferent- parents who have been
cruel enough to force their 14 -year
old daughters into the stifling atmos
phere of a factory. So much the
more as some of us could easily af
ford to wait a few more years, in 'or
der to increase the educational value
of ' our children, land, by means of
higher knowledge, enable these chil
dren to uplift the name of theirj race.
September, the new year of school
ing, is at the door. It depends upon
us, what we want. De' we care to re
main in the background, or is there
any spirit of intelligence in us? Will
it be all right if thfe elevation of ouf
race here is postponed until the next
generation, when childreji of careless
parents will have, learned - their sad
lesson. Or, do we prefer perhaps, to
s-rasp the splendid -,. opportunity of
higher- education Voffered to our chil
dren especially by this , land of the
free, and by the Hungarian-loving
city of Bridgeport. " '
