Iu an (Hlitorial “Fortunate for Albu querque,” the "Albuquerque Morn ing Journal” says: The success of Congregation Albert in inducing Rabbi Rorguiuji to re main iu Albuquerque is fortunate for the entire city. His going would have not only meant a distinct loss to Al buquerque Judaism, but would have deprived the City Hureuu of ('huiities of the üblest general secretary that it has ever had. ami the entire com munity of one of its host citizens. Regarding Rabbi ltergmnu’s work as charity secretary, the present writer believes be Is In some position to puss judgment, having for several months been in charge of tile office of the Civic Betterment League, the present bureau's predecessor. Even n single day *peut in tliat little office in the city hull, grappling witli new problems pre sented for quick decision every few minutes—and, tip to recently, with but limited funds at one's command will convince any one that being char ity secretary in a town like Albuquer que, witli a constant flow of indigent and migrutory tuberculurs, is a dif licult task. As far as Rahhi Bergman's service as a citizen is concerned, it needs no expatiution. In almost every patriotic and civic movement, this dynumic man has been actively engaged. Those of us who know the rabbi in. Innately understand ids reasons for wishing to leave Albuquerque. The major part of his life has been spent iu large cities, with their correspond ingly great opportunities for service. Tlie personal reason for his remain ing in Albuquerque having ceased, it was natural for him—to whom large activities are as the ozone—to seek wider fields. That lie was induced to reconsider ids resignation came as a pleasant surprise to his friends. DR. ADLER SUCCEEDS COL. CUTLER.
