ANTWERP: A LATTER-DAY
Antwerp, where the United States
athletes performed so notably in the
1920 Olympic games, was Europe's
Hamburg of the sixteenth century
and the Athens of the seventeenth.
This city compels American admira
tion by its phenomenal power to
"come back." .Crushed by wars, In
quisitions. economic bans and persecu
tions of its people, Antwerp always
has risen again.
Figures tell the story. Population
In 1568, 125,000; twenty years later,
only 55.000. From 1800 to 1850 the
population almost doubled. To Its
290,000 in 1904, a hundred thousand
more were added before the Germans
came In October, 1914. The 12.160
veiwels that passed in and out of Its
fine harbor in 1905 marked an in
crease of more than 50 per cent since
Not that Antwerp is a perennial
boom town. It is at least 15 centur
ies old. And during that time its
story Is one of struggle against re
peated tragedies. When the Germans
invaded the city its noble cathedral
tower looked down on Just one more,
though infinitely more cruel, blow of
the sort it had been receiving since
the middle ages. Napoleon (some say
Charles V) compared this tower
Mechlin lace. Its delicate chiseling
forms a network of stone embroidery
against the sky that can be seen from
the surrounding flat country, and from
the winding Scheldt, long before any
other building in Antwerp is visible.
By 1600, five hundred ships often
came and went from Antwerp's bar
bor in a day and two thousand wagon
loads of merchandise usually entered
Its gates. A thousand foreign busi
ness houses were represented there.
Its own merchant princes dwelt in al
most regal splendor.
Amid this material wealth noble
works of art were created. In the
city's museum were specimens of its
glorious school—paintings by Van '
Dyck, the Teniers. Memling, Massys
Jordaens, Jan van Eyck and Rubens,
though the last named was better
represented in the cathedral by his
masterpiece, "The Descent From the
Cross," and two other noted works.
In the Museo Plantin were relics
of that Elbert Hubbard of the middle
ages. Christophe Plantin. whose press
product was no less distinctive when
he.-etic pamphlets were struck off
than when devout religious works
were printed and embossed.
During the religious disturbances of
the mid-sixteenth century the cathe
dral. then considered second only to
St. Peter's at Rome, was pillaged by
the Iconoclasts. Its images and pic
tures. its magnificent vases, its »56 al
tars and Its great organ, considered
the finest of its time, were burned or
broken by the torch-bearing vandals.
Whitewashed walls reminded twen

Other churches were ravaged at
that time. But what Antwerp suffer
ed then was mild compared to the
horrors of "the Spanish Fury" in 1576.
when that latter day Nero, the duke
of Alva, and his Council of Blood,
began a reign of terror which sav
agery scarcely could surpass. Tying
wealthy citizens to horses' tails, he
would drag them miles to "trial."
Antwerp suffered grievously from
this debauch of hangings, quarterings.
beheadings and butcheries. In three

children were slain, burned or drown

It was seven years later that the
doughty citizens of Antwerp made
short shrift of the duke of Anjou's
plotting against Flemish liberty. When
the duke and his men overcame the
Flemish guard of a drawbridge, and
3.000 of the duke's troops rushed in
to take the city, workmen fought furi
ously with their oven shovels, and cit

coins into shape to load them.

the women of Finlaud have been very

1878, and, until the war Intervened.
they not only attended lectures but
rook part In all branches of university
life; they participated In all the cele
brations and festivities, and were
members of the various clubs and stu
dent organizations, In which they were
on a footing of perfect equality with
the men, and frequently were elected
to various official positions. After they
were graduated from one of the sev
eral high schools or from the univer
sity, there were many branches of
work open to them.

also given the right to be elected mem

FUTURE OF SYRIA AFFEI
More and more frequently the spot

now Feisal seeks restoration.
Syria's future concerns the entire
world, for It is coming into its own as
a result of new railways which make
it once more a link land in history's
chain. Explaining the significance of
recent events, a communication by
